Tareena Shakil, 26, secretly travelled to the reviled group's stronghold of Raqqa after telling her family she was going on a beach holiday to Turkey

British mum who took her toddler to Syria and joined ISIS funded the trip with her student loan, it was claimed yesterday.

Tareena Shakil reportedly got the cash a month before she secretly travelled to the terror group's stronghold of Raqqa.

The 26-year-old told her family she was going on a beach holiday to Turkey.

Yesterday, Shakil became the first woman to be convicted of being as ISIS member as she was found guilty of terror offences.

According to The Sun, the loan was intended to pay for a two-year HND in hospitality management at the London School of Business and Finance.

However, she allegedly used £1,215.50, which she received in September 2014, to buy plane tickets from East Midlands Airport the next month.

Once in Syria she dressed her 14-month-old child in ISIS-branded clothing and taught the youngster to say 'allah hu akbar'.

She also posed for photos wearing an ISIS, brandished handguns and AK47s and said she wanted to "die as a martyr".

In other shocking snaps Burkha-wearing Shakil, a Spice Girls fan, posed in front of an ISIS black flag with her child, who cannot be named.

She posted a message to British terrorist Sally Jones on Twitter before fleeing her home in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs, to head to Syria in 2014.

Once in Raqqa Shakil sent WhatsApp and KIK messages to friends and family saying the city was "beautiful" and that she was "happy as Larry".

The former college student later claimed to have escaped ISIS's clutches and was arrested by anti-terror police when she returned to the UK last February.

Shakil told detectives she had been forcibly held in Raqqa and claimed she did not know the true nature of ISIS when she went to Syria.

But jurors at Birmingham Crown Court found her guilty of encouraging acts of terrorism and being a member of ISIS,Mirror reported.
