Australian Muslim couple dies in Syria

The wife appears to have been a convert, and so too was the husband:
An Australian man and his wife are being mourned by Sydney's Muslim community, as their reported deaths bring the number of Australians believed killed in the Syrian conflict to seven.

Yusuf Ali and his wife, Amira, of Queensland and formerly Granville were ''in their house in Syria and the FSA [Free Syrian Army] attacked and killed them'', Amira's sister Rose posted on Facebook on Saturday.

''Please everyone make dua for my sister Amira Ali and brother Inlaw Yusuf. They hav been martyred and insha'allah they r shaheeds. May Allah SWT grant them both janah Ameen,'' wrote Rose, who is known on Facebook as ''Mujahidah Lioness''. ''May Allah make the mujahideen victorious against FSA and Assad's regime.''

Amira, nee Karroum, was 22 and nicknamed ''Squid''. She left St Hilda's, an exclusive Anglican school for girls at Southport on the Gold Coast, in 2009, and married Yusuf Ali in 2012.

Her husband's Facebook page said he was from al-Jannah, Idlib, Syria. One of his posts said: ''Death is a reality none of us can out run. What have you done to prepare for 'destroyer of pleasures'? Believe in one God (without partners) enjoin in what is good and forbid what is evil and you will have success in this life and the next!''.

His page carried a portrait of him titled ''The World is My Prison'' and pictures of hooded men in army camouflage carrying guns.
Here's more information about the wife's background:
Ms Ali moved to Granville in Sydney's west in mid-2012 where she met Mr Ali, a Muslim convert whose parents are Australian and African-American.

Raised by her Lebanese Muslim father and Kiwi mother, Ms Ali attended a prestigious Anglican high school on the Gold Coast.

Her family said that in spite of her Anglican education, she was always a practicing Muslim but it was only two weeks before her wedding that she began to wear a niqab.

The couple married in April last year but soon after the wedding he left for Syria and told friends he was off to do humanitarian work.

But some worshippers from Masjid Al Noor Mosque in Granville where the couple attended prayers believed he was planning to fight with a jihadist rebel faction.
The only tragedy here is that both the wife and husband would be so weak willed and succumb to the Religion of Peace, effectively throwing away their lives for nothing.
