Happy Resistance and Liberation Day to Lebanon and Hizbullah!

On this day, 15 years ago, you gained the first major victory, booting out the Judaic occupiers after a sanguinary two-decade struggle against the Devilish Entity. From an ill-equipped group of volunteers scrambled in the name of national identity, Shi’a Muslim triumphalism and Islamic liberation you’ve blossomed into a magnificent, intricately interwoven tapestry as a humanitarian organization, the best non-state paramilitary fighting force on Earth and the symbolic heart of the Global Mouqawamah against Zionist ‘Israel’.

From Sayyed Abbas al-Musawi to Ghalib Awali, Ali “Bilal” Saleh to Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and his son Jihad, and now Hajj Mustafa Badreddine, your globally celebrated martyrs are legendary, your sacrifices are of the highest order and though you are Lebanese Shi’a, you’ve fought for liberation from the parasites for the entire planet and have reignited the spirit of resistance in millions of souls with your tactical brilliance, noble motivations and fearless audacity.

We salute you a billion times over for your bravery, faith, focus, determination, sacrifice, patience and inspiring spirit as Resistance to the Monsters grows in the hearts of the oppressed day by day from victory to victory. Now the Zaydi Houthis of Ansarullah in Yemen have taken a page or two from your playbook and are smashing the crypto-Jewish House Arab Coalition led by Saud, even more efficiently, no doubt with your support and help, inspired by your successes in the name of our beautiful Deen.

May Allah keep your warriors safe, your motives pure and your victories continuous as we dismantle the diabolical intergenerational conspiracy of the Kehilla. You have shown the cowards of the Ummah the mighty and globally reverberating results of not backing down and not bending over. We passionately anticipate your liberation of Shebaa Farms, Ghajar, Kfar Shouba Hills and the Golan Heights, and from there, all of Palestine itself, from the clutches of these heartless malevolent demons. We pray you always succeed, that the effect of your majestic efforts is exponentialized. May the whole world see the unmatched beauty of self-determination and the fruit of collective resistance to Dajjal’s tyrants of this age.

Long Live Mighty Hizbullah! Long Live Ansarullah!

Long Live Islamic Liberation!

Death to Saud! Death to ‘Israel’!

Free Palestine!

Free Planet Earth!

Interview and Book Review: “Pieces to Peace”

Often times, in the modern world, stories of survival, triumph, and ultimate victories over heavy odds help inspire us to reach within ourselves to accomplish our own long-term goals and objectives. The dreams which weigh on us as days turn to weeks, turn to months, turn to years may seem more and more unattainable as the sheer weight of their growing burden on our conscience makes them seem like distant fantasy or even worse, childish aspirations that no longer apply in the adult world where we must earn a living to support ourselves and our family.

For those of us who are first or second generation immigrants in the West, this same path is riddled with a multitude of pitfalls, diversions and distractions, and difficult challenges as we try to stay true to who are from our inherited backgrounds to the values we develop in our interactions with the world we live in.

Laila Rashidie, or Laila Re, is a uniquely gifted poet and activist based out of Toronto. Her first published book of poetry, “Pieces to Peace” is an eye-opening and inspiring work that gives us a view into what it was like to grow up as an immigrant Afghan girl becoming a woman in a new, rapidly changing world, going from confusion to hope and from disillusion to confidence and perseverance.

Knowing Laila, as we do, here at Mouqawamah Music, we acknowledge and appreciate her contributions in the activist community as an organizer and a connector who is staunch in her support of immigrants, women and social justice. She has traversed a difficult and arduous path, embraced her struggle and become stronger as an activist and a woman along the way, inspiring others to follow their own dreams.

Her “Pieces to Peace” is both emotionally charged and visually descriptive. Throughout the short but potent work, we navigate along with her as she develops her unique identity in this new world, encountering excitement, wonder, love, pain, heartbreak, sadness, and hope to fulfillment. We are there with her as she opens to love, experiences the pain of loss and begins the process of healing in self-discovery.

We recently spoke to Laila about “Pieces to Peace” and the following is an excerpt from that interview:

How did your creative process change for you when you decided to publish a whole book of poetry?

I actually made sure the creative process that I had prior to the conception of the book idea didn’t change my essence or purpose. I was writing poetry on my blog “Bella Eshq” since April of 2013 as a creative outlet, the poetry book idea came to be in January 2014 through a former mentor after he read my poems. He is the first person who encouraged and supported me to put together all of my poems in one piece to self-publish. He guided me on the structure of the book, which was to have at least 100 poems. I would say my creative process became more disciplined in terms of making more time to write and taking my purpose more seriously. I felt really encouraged but I also never expected the book to happen, I just went with it organically. My mentor believed it was really important to share my art with the world and give my experiences too because there are many souls struggling like mine. I had doubts and questioned if I wanted to even reveal my personal life but it’s a sacrifice I believe I made for the better.

It took a whole year to finally have it published; it is 117 poems in total in chronological order from April 2013 to July 2014. Initially, I was trying to write a novel titled “From Pieces, To Peace.” However, I was so immersed in my healing process through poetry, I was writing poems regardless with or without the book idea. I wasn’t able to write that novel during that time because I was consumed by several internal conflicts that I resolved through those poems on that blog. The name of the blog means Beautiful Love, when I first started the blog I was a total emotional wreck so I was trying to really become a beautiful love. My pen name at that time was Bella Eshq and also Laila Love. I feel like I’m ready to work on that novel now, now that I have more self-love, clarity and peace of mind. I mostly write shorter poems now on my Instagram. (@lailarepoetry)

You reveal a lot of the difficulties and your vulnerabilities being an Afghan growing up in Canada. What have you learned from all these experiences about yourself, and about life?

I’ve learned that I am home wherever I am and I need to be at peace with that. I, like most Afghans, have some degree of constant sadness due to being suddenly displaced from our native land. Even though I escaped when I was a toddler, those were my roots linguistically, religiously and culturally besides ancestrally. I always thought as a child that I was temporarily living in Canada and returning with my family one day. I think many of us are going to get hit hard with the reality that we will be raising more new generations in our new nations. Afghanistan is still a war zone and at war after 4 decades. That reality hit me hard when my mother passed away from cancer in December of 2010. I have come to accept that this is home now, which was really depressing. I still and always will feel like I was cut off from a beautiful civilization and history. We are the first generation in millions to have had to flee Afghanistan. We’re all learning as we go day by day how to settle, adapt and “integrate” for the long and permanent term but still preserve and respect our roots. That’s the limbo that creates the instability and the chaos in me growing up in Canada. I feel like I was not letting myself grow or change cause of this guilt of betraying or compromising what it means to be a true Afghan or Muslim. However, I learnt that I am in constant growth and so is culture. We are all walking contradictions and that is okay. If I make mistakes, that is okay, I am learning. I can only live my truth. We cannot be boxed into labels; culture and society is what we make of it. We are humans living under multiple labels, as well with labels that are opposites of each other. That’s reality, and that’s what it means to be human; both simple and complex. I’m okay with all of this, life really doesn’t promise us anything but death. There can be miracles but not always mercy. Life owes us nothing, so I have to be and create my own happiness and love. Writing is me just being proactive artistically with my growth. I’ve been growing with every poem about who I am and what life is.

There is a vastness and depth to the feelings and emotions communicated in “Pieces to Peace.” There is a lot more to the story and we can’t help but feel that this book of poetry is the first saga in a meaningful lifelong path. We anticipate being one of first outlets to support and promote her work in the future and highly recommend the first chapter in what promises to be a brilliant tapestry.

Khantemplation Entry 2: Fiery Spiritual Giant Malcolm X’s Guidance on Autonomous Economics

Khantemplation Entry 2

Most ‘activists’ still haven’t learned these lessons. You keep fighting for some type of unequal restitution for past and even current wrongs without looking at the root structure. Protesting for jobs, housing, rights, etc. is all a magnificently cathartic waste of time and energy. You have real valid anger but then you couch it in some silly mindless phrase you repeat over and over again, essentially begging the real or imagined oppressor to fix the problems.

Muslims in ‘Americas’ before Columbus

(EDITOR’S NOTE: West African Muslims traveled to the ‘Americas’, long before colonial Europe, establishing trade routes and cultural exchange through peaceful collaboration with the Natives of the lands. Many historians ignore this evidence to support the narrative of highly civilized and technologically advanced Europe domesticating the tribal barbaric natives . Though we hardly need traitorous scoundrel Tayyip Erdogan to relay this message to us, the discoveries of relics cement the general history of early Islamic pluralism with the Indigenous. Far from aims of  conquest and enslavement, West Africans, especially Mansa Musa Abu Bakari from Mali, came with gifts of gold and silver, spices and tools for the Natives with whom they established new townships through intermarriage and cultural exchange as well as spiritual harmony. The synergistic collaboration of the Africans and Natives is reflected in the Tribe of Ben Ishmael, which was ruthlessly eradicated through castration and other modes of eugenics. This eccentric collective of peoples included Africans, Natives and Irish slaves in the “New World”. They lived an Islamic life and intermarried, organizing in a cohesive tribal unit. These topics and more are addressed in depth by my late mentor, Sultan Abdul Latif in his masterpiece, “When Nations Gather“. ~ Khanverse) Continue reading Muslims in ‘Americas’ before Columbus

Why Jewish Rap is Wack

by Khanverse (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

It’s no major secret in an expanding variety of circles that Jewish endeavors in the arts overwhelmingly result in subversive perversion. Regrettably, this vast subject has not been adequately dealt with since the Internets began and Mouqawamah Music indeed aims to fill this vacuum, eventually, God willing.

As we here at Mouqawamah Music no doubt descend from the spiritually fervent line of Sergei Yesenin, Pablo Neruda, Ghassan Kanafani and Kamal Nasser, we consider it our noble obligation to root out the invaders from whence they came.

‘Pashtun Papa’: Walmart withdraws offensive product

(EDITOR’S NOTE: As an ethnic Pashtun I’d like to keep my commentary as brief as possible. Personally, I don’t like the word “racism” because it validates a very weak and colonized  paradigm in which the hated minority underclasses must beg their tyrannical overlords for pluralistic mercy.  No brown peoples need this validation as our histories are rich with advanced culture, scientific discoveries, elegant civilization, and widespread knowledge. To the extent these caricatures feed into the Empire’s drone bombings on ethnic Pashtun enclaves in Afghanistan and Pakistan we suggest the promulgation of accurate portrayals of historical Pashtun culture and religion.  We can enlighten others to the principled and disciplined intricate tribal systems that have ennobled Mouqawamah in our regions and prevented our total conquest in the original diaspora since our exile and subsequent dispersal from Palestine over 2000 years ago. Even Organized Jewry has developed a fascination with this subject attempting to appropriate and reframe our narrative. This Halloween product is yet another example of the Talmudist led drive to normalize the stereotyping of Muslims in the West to prevent organic dialogue from shaping positive views of our distant and mysterious Muslim world. While Twitter vigilance has its place, the real eradication of these memes will come about when the isolated communities that drive these false narratives decide to expand their awareness and learn from the beautiful melinated peoples and their distinct imprint on human life.  ~Khanverse) Continue reading ‘Pashtun Papa’: Walmart withdraws offensive product

Venezuela to Offer Scholarships to Palestinians to Study Medicine

(Editor’s Note: This  ‘cross-fertilization’ of multi-polar autonomy and synergistic Global South development forecasts Mouqawamah interdependencies and cooperation. The expanding burgeoning relationship between Latin America and the Islamic Resistance Axis will expedite the disintegration of the Empire. ~ Khanverse) Continue reading Venezuela to Offer Scholarships to Palestinians to Study Medicine

Lupe’s Fiasco: Pro-Palestine to Blair-Gate and the pseudo-Islamic masquerade party

by Khanverse (Mouqawamah Music Exclusive)

Lupe Fiasco was born in 1982, as Wasalu Jaco, to a Black-West African Muslim family in Chicago. His parents exposed him to a wide array of cultural phenomena, life experiences, and influences that led to the cerebral and sensitive character who emerged on the national scene with the release of “Food and Liquor” in 2006.
