It's incomprehensible that a mother can do this to her own child.

what kind of ignorance, fear and brainwashing could be behind this woman acting against her nature? with any luck, a stint in prison will provide her with a different view of the world.

Sick woman.

What an evil woman. There is nothing that justifies beating a child to death, or killing a child in any other way, for that matter. Hope she gets life in prison.

Sadly, this isn't the first story we've read just like this one. The beating of children in Muslim Madrassas seems to be fairly common and we read of one little boy who was hung up in a tree by his feet and beaten so badly by the imam that he had broken bones and had to be hospitalized, and all for not memorizing the Qur'an perfectly in Arabic! He didn't speak Arabic but that seems to be the language that all these little Muslim children have to memorize the qur'an in. No wonder few Muslims have any idea what the Qur'an (let alone the Sunnah) says.

A parent murdering their own child is the most evil act and we hope this awful woman gets the book thrown at her (and not the Qur'an, though its punishments are pretty gruesome).

What kind of evil deity must someone believe in to do something as horrific as this?!

If she ever gets out of prison she should be sterilized if she is still of child bearing age, as should be anyone who harms their own child/children.

Sad that anyone can be parents. And out of all people to be killed by your own mother who is supposed to be the one willing to die for you in a second if they needed to!

Poor little boy!

There's a lot to be said for enforced STERILIZATION!

Good point, Pam. Of course, that's why the Pakistanis won't get themselves or their children vaccinated for polio, because they think we're trying to make them infertile. As a general culture and political ideology, Islam takes first prize in psychologically dysfunctional.

"Yaseen's primary school teacher added: "He was a delightful little boy and beautifully behaved who always had a smile on his face."

I am reluctant to blame this horrific crime on Islam. This sounds more to me like a prototypical abusive parent, found all over the world, those who commit the worst crime of all, murder of one's own child. I have read this same story countless times over the years and it is always the same, just like this one. An insane parent will find any reason to abuse a child and I've read them all, not one of them sound. She is just another cold blooded killer. It really is too bad there's no parenting test people must take before procreating, something that would identify the potential killers like the MMPI. We are at a stage in our evolution when parenting should be a privilege not a right, because you can, does not mean you should. But we are also a long way from creating let alone implement any standard that would work world wide, I don't know if we ever will do a thing that would benefit children like this little one whose life must have been horrible living with such a monster. Usually these kill long before this age which seems to make this even more egregious. And so, so sad.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared, and read. Obsessive, fanatical behavior leads to disaster and often causes the offender not to be able to see the humanity of his/her victim. Sad, Sorry, and Sick. Everyone connected to such a case pays a high price fofr hate and obsession.

I cannot understand how anyone, least of all a child's mother, could beat a 7 year old to death. The poor child must have spent his last few moments of life in pain and terror.

Howard, I will add that the poor child must have spent ALL his short life in pain and terror.

I think this upbringing makes people consider suicide bombing and a promised reward of 72 virgins to be a good transaction.

This is so pathetic!!! When these people are brain washed from the time they can walk until adulthood is it any wonder how sick their minds are!? I truly believe it is past any possibility to re-train the brain washing that these adults have!! I would not know where to begin other than getting rid of the adult men who pull the insane disasters they do with women and children first! Extinguish them all together! Then just maybe there might be a chance to get a hold of the youth and the women who have been abused.....I honestly do not see any viable source though of retraining any of them that are adults..take all the kids away from them!

I guess the precedent was set 1400 years ago

In Sura 18 (the cave) Moses meets Khidr and asks permission to follow him

koran 18:66....Mūsa (Moses) said to him (Khidr) "MayI follow you so that you teach me something of that knowledge (guidance and true path) which you have been
taught (by Allāh)?

Then follow three scenarios of which we will concern ourselves only with the unprovoked murder of a young boy

18:74...Then they both proceeded, till they met a boy, he (Khidr) killed him. Mūsa (Moses) said: "Have you killed an innocent person who had killed none? Verily, you have committed a thing "Nukra" (a great Munkar - prohibited, evil,dreadful thing)!"

18:78...(Khidr) said: "This is the parting between me and you, I will tell you the interpretation of (those) things over which you were unable to hold patience.

18:80...And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared lest he should oppress them by rebellion and disbelief.

18:81..."So we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in righteousness and near to mercy

It sounds like this little boy received numerous beatings before the one that killed him. Where was Dad? Did no one else suspect what was going on? There were allegedly two 'investigations' possibly by child services at this home before. I think the mother was religiously obsessed and narcisssistic. I hope she never has other children.

I join with everyone here in condemning the insanity of child abuse and murder. Religion may have been her excuse but the actions are from insanity.

It is obvious that there should have been more supervision and reporting that might have saved this child but it is impossible to protect all children from their parents. Especially if their mother is a crazy psychopath.

My heart goes out to this poor child and the suffering and terror he endured. I hope that I will never see this kind of article again but I fear that I will.
