When a hardworking mother-of-4 graciously welcomed her sister to live rent-free in her home, the devious younger woman hacked her generous sibling to pieces in an incredibly gory scene. However, after police arrested the sadistic woman, who barbarically repaid her sister’s generosity, they were horrified to discover why she was more than happy to butcher her own flesh and blood, who had graciously taken her in.
Out of the goodness of her own heart, 34-year-old Saima Khan generously invited her unmarried Muslim sister, 27-year-old Sabah Khan, to come live with her and her family in their Luton home valued at nearly half a million dollars. Unfortunately, Saima’s selfless charity wouldn’t go unpunished.
As Saima returned home from her job as a caretaker in May 2016, Sabah lept out of a dark corner and brutally butchered her, ferociously stabbing her 68 times, chopping off her hand, and nearly decapitating her. Of course, it was Sabah’s sadistic justification for dismembering her loving sister that has left authorities even more revolted.
Daily Mail reports that Sabah remorselessly confessed to Bedfordshire Police that she gruesomely hacked and slashed her sister for 8 minutes because she was having an affair with her sister’s husband and wanted to take Saima’s place in the marriage bed. Sabah, who had known her brother-in-law Hafeez Rehman since she was 10, had engaged in a 4-year-long affair with her sister’s 37-year-old husband and had even obtained an abortion when he impregnated her.
Hafeez reportedly had sex with Sabah in his company taxicab countless times when his wife would leave for work over the last few years. He had seized the opportunity to treat both sisters as his harem and claimed “exclusive rights” over his sister-in-law in a jealous effort to prohibit her from seeing anyone other than him.
Hafeez even made inquiries to clerics concerning whether Islamic law would allow him to marry both sisters, as the Quran prohibits the union of certain relatives but encourages the ownership of sex slaves. Soon, however, Hafeez began to lose interest in Sabah, causing her to seek revenge against her unknowing sister.
Sabah plotted her sister’s murder for months by searching poisons, poisonous snakes, and “getting away with murder” on the internet before purchasing a large kitchen knife just days before carrying out the grisly attack. Thirty minutes after Saima had left to care for an elderly patient shortly after 10 p.m., Sabah texted her sister to tell her that one of the children was crying. After Saima rushed home, Sabah attacked her in the hallway, stabbing and hacking her sister for at least 8 minutes before disposing of the evidence, according to The Guardian.
“On entering the house, Saima turned on the downstairs hallway lights and 45 seconds later, the lights went off, so the downstairs was in darkness,” prosecutor Jane Bickerstaff said. “She lay in wait for her sister and 45 seconds after Saima got into the house, she was murdered in the hallway. There is no evidence that she ever managed to leave that area by the front door. It was a vicious and sustained attack.”
Sabah was utterly remorseless as she was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 22 years for what the court labeled an “astonishingly brutal” murder. The court heard in great detail that Sabah hacked off her sister’s hand, pulled off her clothing, stabbed her all over her body, and slashed her throat with such ferocity that she nearly decapitated her.
“You enticed her to come home from work so that the killing could be carried out,” Judge Christopher Moss told her. “You had decided that afternoon that murder weapon should be used which had been purchased by you days earlier. You have for some time planned your sister’s death. The killing was astonishingly brutal and the knife attack continued on after the deceased must have lost her life. You killed your sister in her own home with her children upstairs. Further, you suggested falsely that you sister had been engaged in an illicit affair with another man.”
While the Quran reserves the most brutal violence for the unbelievers, years of indoctrination can easily translate into savagery against anyone perceived as dishonoring the perpetrator. This is why Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide, which involves murdering one’s family member to restore honor. Of course, the Quran’s verses of violence are enough to blur the lines between the infidel targets and bothersome relatives.
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”
Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”
Sabah’s butchery is no more brutal than the commands of the Quran. She did “lie in wait” and “ambush” her sister, as 9:5 instructs, “cut off” Saima’s hand, as 5:33 orders, and nearly managed to “strike off” her sister’s head, as 8:12 commands. While these scriptures are the punishments for those who refuse to accept Islam as their faith, the fiercely gruesome nature of these verses paired with years of indoctrination guarantee the production of murderous people like Sabah.
