The suspect made a sign to the camera during his appearance in the Christchurch District Court on Saturday
One additional victim was found at the Dean Ave Mosque.
The manifesto also said he chose to make his attack in New Zealand to show that nowhere in the world was safe.
"I could not contact two of my friends who are in the mosque as well", he said.
Muath Elayyan, Mohammed's brother, told the Associated Press his brother helped establish the mosque a year after arriving in New Zealand, where he teaches engineering at a university and runs a consultancy.
We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people. "He enjoyed freedom there and never complained about anything", Muath said.
Jordan's foreign ministry said three people from the Middle East country were killed in the attacks after a wounded man died.
Over the weekend Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza held vigils to honor the victims of the massacre, in which 49 people were killed.
Global media were packed outside the court before the hearing, along with heavily armed police and security staff.
Mr Bainimarama also said his government will be working closely with authorities in New Zealand to monitor the welfare of Fijians in Christchurch.
It wasn't until Yama rewatched the gunman's video of the rampage - which he streamed on Facebook Live - and saw his father lying dead on his back that he realised his father did not escape.
Tarrant's occupation was not given on the charging document, and his address was provided as a place in Dunedin, more than 300 km south of Christchurch in New Zealand's South Island.
Politicians in Pakistan and India have also expressed their grief, and shared messages of support to families who may have lost their loved ones.
At least 49 people were killed in the attacks on two mosques.
Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, was apprehended 36 minutes after the first call, the prime minister revealed as she praised the two rural community policemen from Lincoln, a small town 22km southwest of Christchurch, who responded to the emergency.
"I'm so proud of what they've done", he said. But the 87-page manifesto posted on social media just before the shooting began was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim screeds and explanations for an attack.
"I can tell you one thing right now, our gun laws will change", Ardern said adding that a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be considered.
A friend of Wasseim's, Carolyne Phillips, who was at the hospital with him, said he had undergone surgery for a perforated bowel, an injury to his pelvis and to get shrapnel and bone out of his hip socket.
Tarrant did not have a criminal history and was not on any watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.
He is one of three people arrested in connection with the shooting; and while the other two remain in custody, their role remains unclear.
The firearms included two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action weapon, she said, speaking to reporters in Wellington before heading to Christchurch.
"There were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack", New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, according to ABC57.

New Zealand mosque shooting: 'pray for God's peace'
In the video live-streamed by Tarrant, a man inside a mosque appears to say "Welcome brother" as a gunman approaches. The gunman then walks back into the mosque, where there are at least two dozen people lying on the ground.
