Jihadi office worker, 21, and his young wife who bought him a knife on Amazon so he could murder a hit-list of people for her on their wedding day both face life in jail

An office worker and his wife who competed over who loved jihad the most are both facing life in jail after he promised her he would murder people on their wedding day.
     Ummariyat Mirza, 21, has pleaded guilty to researching and plotting a terrorist attack using a hunting knife after drawing up a 'hit-list' of who they hated the most.
     His wife, Madhiha Taheer, 21, an administrator for a children's nursery, who was seven months pregnant, also faces life in jail after she was found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court of one count of preparation to commit acts of terrorism.
     She was convicted of paying £121 for a lethal hunting knife from Amazon and £275 for a 'life size training dummy' for her husband to practice his deadly attack. She also filmed herself punching it in the neck and chest.
     In horrifying messages ahead of their marriage she said: 'Can we get married already ffs [for f**k's sake] I want u to kill ppl for me, I have a list.'

kHe responded by offering: 'The day of nikkah [wedding], I'll kill em all. Give me the list, the only thing that stops me is we are not married. I will defo, I'm not joking.'
     But Taheer told him: 'Lool [laugh out loud], u can't have it til u put a ring on it.'
     The couple from Alum Rock, Birmingham, bonded over ISIS material on social media and competed over who was the most radical.
     In a WhatsApp exchange on March 12 2015 Mirza told his wife: 'I'm more radical than u, I took u in. I introduced u to dawla and Twitter and jihad. Ur my student.'
     Mirza was arrested on March 29 this year, a week after Khalid Masood killed five people in Westminster including PC Keith Palmer and later pleaded guilty to preparing to commit terrorist acts.
     Taheer faced a trial because she said the hunting knife was a gift to her husband because he liked Bear Grylls and hunting but she was convicted today.
     Mirza's sister Zainub Mirza, 23, is also facing jail after she pleaded guilty to sending him a series of explicit ISIS videos, it can be revealed for the first time.
     Mirza called Taheer his 'perfect partner and soulja [soldier] and soulmate' and she promised to emulate the couple who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California.
     The couple got married seven months later and nine months after that, Mirza began planning his attack.
     He practised on a life-size dummy called 'Century Bob' with a full-size 12ins plastic training knife bought from Amazon on February 15 this year.
     He then bought a Cold Steel Leatherneck 'Special Forces' knife on February 23 for £121.20.
