A Malaysian female doctor left her comfortable middle class life in Malaysia to join the Islamic State, where she married a jihadi she had never before met and whose language she could not speak.
Calling herself Shams, the 26-year-old has since kept an impassioned diary of the time she claims she spent in ISIS-held cities Taqba and Raqqa, updating a number of social media sites with florid descriptions of her marriage to a Morocco-born terrorist who uses the nom de guerre Abu Baraa.
As well as posting detailed accounts of her day to day life as an a terror bride, Shams also posts words of encouragement for other young female fanatics thinking of joining ISIS, often updating her websites with chilling images, including one of a doctor's stethoscope wrapped around a rifle.
Shams, who uses the Twitter name Bird of Jannah, has told her followers that she first travelled to Syria in February, adding that felt 'excitement' at the prospect of joining the terrorist group.
She added that she can speak English, Urdu and Hindi, which has helped her fit in with the huge number of foreigners who have travelled to join ISIS without being able to speak Arabic.
Her marriage to Abu Baraa was arranged for her by another woman in April and, despite the couple not sharing a common language.
Describing their first meeting, she wrote: "I was trembling. Nervous. Scared. My emotions were mixed. When he noticed my arrival, he gave salaam [said hello] and introduced himself, so did I. Then, it was a long awkward silence."
"After few minutes, I flipped my niqab. He looked at me, our eyes catches each others. He smiled. And asked a question I shall never forget . . . 'Can we get married today?'," she added.
Describing their praying together, Shams said: "He turned back and smiled at me. And I can feel something. Yes, I guess I just fell in love with someone - my husband!"
On October 21 she wrote: "I know for a fact that one day my husband will be a shaheed [martyr]... and I have to prepare for it."
