On a dating website profile in 2013, San Bernardino Muslim terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook described himself as spending of lot of his free time at the mosque, memorizing the quran, and going to target practice.

Daily Caller Farook reportedly had contact with known terrorists in the Middle East. He has also traveled to the Middle East and to Pakistan multiple times. It has also been reported that Farook viewed ISIS propaganda online. Investigators found a heavy arsenal of guns, ammunition and pipe bombs at their house in Redlands, Cal.
In describing his ideal mate on his dating profile, Farook said that he was “looking for a practicing muslimah,” a reference to a follower of Islam.
Farook also wanted “someone who takes her religion very seriously and is always trying to improve her religion and encouraging others to do the same using hikmah and not harshness.”
It is unclear if Hakeem, who had a Pakistani passport, met Farook through the dating website. The couple were reportedly married for two years, and he brought her to the U.S. on a visa granted to fiancees of American citizens. Farook was born in Chicago and lived most of his life in California.
Farook’s newly-discovered profile indicates that he had become more devout in recent years when compared to other profiles posted years before.
As The Daily Caller reported late Wednesday, Farook referenced his religious beliefs in profiles he posted when he was 22 years old. But the narratives from those sites are much less focused on his faith. (RELATED: Syed Rizwan Farook’s Dating Profile Shows He Liked Reading Religious Books And Shooting Target Practice)
