The Muslim wives of two slain Melbourne ISIS jihadists are calling for Australians to donate money to the Islamic State while posting images of their husbands holding severed heads.
Herald Sun The wife of Roxburgh Park’s Suhan Rahman, killed just last week, has tweeted images of herself and female friends dressed in full burqas, brandishing AK47 rifles and leaning on a BMW M5 with an IS flag draped over the bonnet.
The woman, who goes under the Twitter handle Umm Jihad, also boasts about the glitz and glamour of life with the Australian terrorists. “If you can send money to the Mujahideen here and you are able to assist a fighter dm (direct message) me and send as much as you are able to,” she says.
Melburnian Zehra Duman, the wife of Rahman’s mate, Mahmoud Abdullatif, has also tweeted propaganda.
Duman, who goes by the Twitter name Umm Abdullatif, states: “Ft. (featuring) The Sharrouf Family, me & Umm Jihad kikn it in the Khilafah.”
On March 18, Umm Jihad celebrated the death of her husband in one tweet, saying: “May Allah accept my husband, Abu Jihad al Australi (Rahman’s fighting name). Promised Allah and fought in the front lines until he obtained shahadah.”
Both have also posted a sickening image of Abdullatif and Rahman in combat fatigues, holding guns and a bearded, severed head. The wives’ social media activity has dramatically escalated in recent days, with posts circulating among radical networks in Australia.
It comes as the Herald Sun yesterday revealed IS had launched a step-by-step dossier to guide would-be Australian jihadists on how to flee the country and fight alongside the terror group.
Abdullatif and Rahman left Melbourne together to fight for IS, and linked up with notorious Sydney extremists Mohamed Elomar and Khaled Sharrouf. Abdullatif died in January, two months before his Melbourne friend.
Sharrouf attracted worldwide infamy last year by posting a photo of his seven-year-old son holding a severed head of a slain Syrian soldier.
Authorities, terror experts and Muslim leaders have also raised concerns over an online guide. The support network detailed on the site was the one used by Melbourne suicide bomber Jake Bilardi.
