Heads of state from Pacific countries, including Fiji's President Jioji Konkrote will also be in attendance, she added.

The attack is New Zealand's worst ever mass shooting. "And they have left us humbled and united", she said.

Harry and heavily-pregnant Meghan told New Zealanders "we are with you" as they signed a book of condolence at New Zealand House in London last week. What words capture the anguish of our Muslim community being the target of hatred and violence? "And I think that is a very, very powerful message", he told reporters on Friday.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern spoke at the televised event, along with Muslim leaders and a survivor of the attack.

Al Noor Mosque terror attack survivor, Farid Ahmed, whose wife Husna rescued children from the gunman before being killed returning to find him, said he forgives the murderer.

"I met with the mother and father of a boy called Tariq and they said to me the night before that Tariq was singing Peace Train - oh, wow!"

"I don't want a heavy heart boiling like a volcano with anger, fury and rage - it burns itself and burns its surroundings", he said. It doesn't have peace.

He is also well known for his gang affiliation in the neighborhood as well as a member of the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips. According to TMZ , there was gunfire at the store in September 2018, but no one was shot then, and Nipsey was not there.

Delegates from almost 60 countries also heard Ahmed describe how he doesn't want hatred to be the prevailing emotion. "I don't want to have a heart like this". "I want love in my heart". People who are killed in their worship are in paradise.

Ardern said her country has had time to come to terms with the horrific nature of the massacre and hopes there is a groundswell for change.

Amid the tears and grief, there was optimism among the crowd that the outpouring of compassion that followed the attacks would become the lasting legacy of its victims.

Gun City, which describes itself as the nation's largest firearms dealer, is promoting the petition on its website, and demanding that firearms license holders are treated fairly and reasonably.

Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel addressed the public by saying "Hate has no place here" after the mihi whakatau, the formal Maori speech of welcome.

The ceremony will also include members of Christchurch's Islamic community reading out the names of each of the 50 victims of the terrorist attack.

Australian Brenton Tarrant is the alleged gunman who is charged with murder and is expected to face a raft of further charges next week.
