IT was a proud moment for the Chishti family.
Ateeq-ur-Rehman, student son of a respected former Imam, had been chosen by his college to become an ambassador.
And the photograph of 18-year-old Ateeq representing Huddersfield New College in the architectural splendour of Spain has a proud place in the family home.
Sadly, months later, Ateeq was dead - as too were his mother, one of his sisters and his five young nieces.
Seven of them, including Ateeq, died trapped in their bedrooms as an horrific blaze, started and fuelled by petrol bombs, ripped through the family home in Osborne Road as they slept.
The eighth, Ateeq's mother, Mrs Zaib-un-Nisa, managed to escape from the flames by hurling herself from a first-floor bedroom window.
But she landed badly in the front garden, suffered terrible head injuries and died in hospital without regaining consciousness.
Ateeq's brother, Muhammad Shafique, who survived the firebomb attack, spoke with deep pride of his young sibling.
"I remember the last time I saw Ateeq. He was in my room on the Saturday night, watching The Premiership on my TV.
"It was the last weekend of the season and although I was not keen on football, he loved it.
"The house was noisy with the girls there so he was in my room watching TV as I ironed my clothes. We were very close. Ateeq was often in my room, using my computer, my books, and we watched TV. We spent a lot of time together.
"I used to go to the schools and the college to see his teachers and his tutors and my dad and I pushed him to do well."
But as well as being a bright student, Ateeq loved and lived life to the full.
He played football every day and went to watch Huddersfield Town at the McAlpine. He had started playing soccer when he was very young, in the playground at Birkby and with his friends. He joined a local team when he was 14 and played with boys much older than himself.
But relatives and friends said he was always very mature for his age and mixed well.
Ateeq had arrived in Huddersfield in 1988 from Pakistan as a four-year-old, with his mother and older brothers and sisters.
He enrolled at Birkby Infant School and then moved up to Birkby Junior School where he was taught by Mrs Carolyn Littlewood.
Ironically Mrs Littlewood, who has now retired, was later to teach Ateeq's young niece Rabia.
Ateeq moved up to Fartown High School but then went to an Islamic boarding school, Eaton Hall, in Retford, Nottinghamshire. His father, Mr Abdul Aziz Chishti, wanted him to do well and the teachers there were highly qualifed.
Ateeq enjoyed the school very much and it gave him a lot of confidence, but he returned to Huddersfield and to Royds Hall High School to sit his GCSE exams, obtaining Bs and Cs.
He began his studies at Huddersfield New College and got good grades, studying IT, geography, business studies and travel and tourism. He was already planning to go on to university and was offered a place at Lincoln, going to the open day and loving it.
Shafique said: "The college suited Ateeq. The tutors made a special award to Ateeq because he represented them as an ambassador on a trip to Spain months before he died.
"And they asked for his work to be included in the A-levels and the exam board awarded him passes in travel and tourism and in geography.
"We were so proud, even though the results came three months after his death."
While Ateeq was a typical lively, outgoing teenager, his mother was an epitome of calm and courteousness.
Zaib-un-Nisa arrived in Britain in the late 1980s after her husband Abdul Aziz Chishti accepted a job in London as a teacher at a mosque.
The couple had married in their native Pakistan in 1964 and enjoyed a good life in the country.
She and her husband had been brought up in small villages and loved to spend the summers back in the countryside.
When Mr Chishti moved north from London to Huddersfield in 1986 he settled into Birkby and in 1988 his wife flew over with her four sons and one of her two daughters to join him.
They lived in a rented house in Poplar Street before buying the stone-built terraced house in Osborne Road.
Mrs Zaib-un-Nisa threw made a comfortable home for her family and devoted her time to her children, her husband and her friends.
The daughter she had left behind in Pakistan was Nafeesa.
She was born in Pakistan in 1967 and studied at local schools.
By the time she was 17, Nafeesa had grown into an attractive young woman and there was great delight for the family in 1983 when she married Rab Nawaz Khan, who was then 21.
Mr Khan was a respected and hardworking businessman, running his own printing and stationery firm, and the pair settled happily into married life.
In 1989 the first of their children was born. Tayyaba was followed three years later by Rabia and four years later by Ateeqa.
The youngest of the girls born in Pakistan, Aneesa was less than 12 months old when she joined her mother and her sisters on a flight from Islamabad to Heathrow for a visit to England.
They made the trip because of the state of Mr Chishti's health. He was in hospital with a mystery illness, causing concern to doctors and to his family.
Mr Chishti said: "Nafeesa wanted to be with me at the time because she was so worried.
"She thought about leaving the chldren in Pakistan but worried they would miss her, so she brought them with her to stay with us.
"It was originally meant to be for a six-month stay and we thought it would be good for the girls to join the local schools.
"We liaised with the education service and with the schools and all were very helpful. Tayyaba joined Fartown High School, Rabia went to Birkby Junior School and Ateeqa went to Birkby Infant School.
"The schools made the girls very welcome and they loved it. It was so different to the schools they attended in Pakistan.
"I used to teach the Koran to the girls at home and my sons loved to hear about the work they had done. They were happy times."
Nafeesa was pregnant with her fifth child when she arrived and in November 2001 she gave birth to Najeeba at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The birth was by Caesarian section and was a difficult one. When an infection set in, Nafeesa became very ill.
Doctors said she could not return home in her condition so the family asked the Home Office for an extension to her stay, which was granted for a further six months .
Tragically, the arson attack on the house they shared happened only weeks before they were due to fly home and indeed as they were packing away toys and presents they had bought.
It was a flight they were never to make.
Instead there was a terrible 4000-mile journey for a man whose entire family was murdered.
Rab Nawaz Khan had to fly to Britain to mourn his wife and his daughters - including a baby he was never to see nor hold.
