Happy 1,208th Birthday To Imam Jawad (A.S.), The Youngest Infallible, Child Genius, Pious Resistor and Reflection of Jesus Christ (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

This past weekend marked the 1,208th birthday of Imam Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Moussa al-Jawad (A.S.), the 9th Imam in the Jaafari Shi’a tradition and the youngest of the Infallibles (A.S.), with his life only lasting 25 years before he was martyred. Known also as Al-Taqi (the pious), Al-Qani and Al-Radhi (the content and the satisfied, as in content/satisfied solely with ALLAH [SWT]), Al-Zaki (the pure) and Bab al-Mourad (the Gate of Hopes and Dreams), the Imam (A.S.) was, as Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution, said on June 13th, 2011, “the epitome of fighting falsehood. He strove for the rule of ALLAH (SWT). He fought for ALLAH (SWT) and the Holy Quran. He did not fear any power. He was in fact the leader, role model and forerunner of the movement followed by the entire Iranian nation today.” Which makes his life all the more important to study. Moreover, Sayyed Khamenei said in a May 15th, 1981 sermon that Imam al-Taqi (A.S.) “was a sign and symbol of resistance; a great man who fought against the pretentious and hypocritical influence of the Abbasid caliph Ma’moun and he never withdrew an inch. He endured all the arduous conditions, while employing every possible means to fight against falsehood.” It is this exemplification of truth in which we derive our analysis that Imam Jawad (A.S.) was also a reflection of Jesus Christ (A.S.), who is described by ALLAH (SWT) as His Word in the Holy Qur’an (3:45 and 4:171). And what is His Word but truth?

Vindication For The Black Sheep Is Inevitable: One Year Since Anti-Parasitic, Truth-Seeking Hero Nick Spero Passed On

by Jonathan Azaziah

Nicholas Spero saved my life. And waking up everyday knowing that this courageous soldier of truth and justice, my beloved brother and one of my closest and trusted friends, is no longer on the physical plane after departing it on this day last year, and so young at that (43 years old), is a cross almost too difficult to bear. There’s a hole in my heart and a hole in the world because of it–as Nick was a champion of the downtrodden and a knight against falsehood. There were (and are) very, very few built like him.

It was July 14th, 2017. I was yammering away with my cousin in Baghdad when the phone calls from Nick started coming in. I didn’t realize it until I hung up that he had called me almost 30 times. When I finally rang him back, he picked up and the first words out of his mouth were, “You need to get your ass out of Canada right now. They’re coming for you.” He sent me the link. B’nai B’rith and the Hate Crimes Unit of the Montreal PD had just declared war on me because of my album “Eternally Husseini”. My mug was all over the local news. “Anti-Semitism” and “Hate Speech”, not to mention “incitement to violence”, were the accusations. He was right. The Monsters, with the full force of their Shabbos Goy “law-men”, were after me. Had Nick not notified me right then and there, and had I just gone on my merry way, I would’ve been too late to get out. I’d be in a Canadian ZOG dungeon right now, not writing to you on this somber occasion. I’ll say it again: Nick Spero saved my life.

Happy 1,190th Birthday To Imam Ali al-Hadi (A.S.), The Struggler Of Strugglers Whose Defiance Of Despotism Was Boundless

by Jonathan Azaziah

May the peace, blessings and mercy of ALLAH al-Mousawwir (SWT) be upon the Ummah today for the 1,190th birth anniversary of Imam Ali al-Hadi, also known as Imam al-Naqi and Abou al-Hassan III (A.S.), among other titles. The 10th Imam of we Jaafari Shi’a and a figure adored by Muslims the world over for his upright character, generosity, wit, intelligence, insight, humbleness and hatred for oppression, the son of Imam Jawad (A.S.) was a Struggler of Strugglers whose defiance of despots and challenges of tyrants were as boundless as his Qur’anic knowledge and Godwariness.

Abou al-Hassan (A.S.) was like a Dawah machine, arguably bringing more people into the warm embrace of Al-Khalil (SWT) than anyone in Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) outside of the Holy Prophet Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Ali al-Karrar (A.S.) The reason for this was because, unbeknownst to many, Imam al-Naqi (A.S.) was a highly gifted polyglot! He spoke Farsi, Hindi, Russian, Bulgarian and several other Slavic dialects, not to mention several variations of Arabic as well as the ancient language of Aramaic. It was the last of those that gave him a great deal of credibility among Christians, theologians especially, and through his love of Christ (A.S.) and eloquent discourses on the Messiah’s deeds and miracles by ALLAH’s (SWT) leave, he led many to Islam.

Imam Khamenei Is My Leader… And He’s Yours Too

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Because of you, the rubies are redder, and the emeralds are greener…

The sapphires are bluer, the golds are golder, and the stones that don’t normally glisten are bolder now, they’re incredible beamers…

You turned hopeless mopers into hopers, molded us into warriors and coached us into raising up the next generation of rebels and dreamers…

Our general-teacher…

In your eyes, we see the liberation of Al-Quds and Mecca, down to the sands where those Guards (R.A.) were left disheveled in Mina…

In your words, we hear the echoes of the Martyrs (R.A.) from All-Time, the ones who gave their lives fighting against the Dajjalic terrorism spawned by the Zio-American Caesars…

And in your presence, we are children, overwhelmed by your revolutionary essence yet sustained, we’re never confused and never beleaguered…

Reflection of Imam Khomeini (R.A.) and the progression of his genesis, in your light, we are as Awake as Awake can be, never are we ever akin to jinn on sedatives either…

Sent by the Most Merciful, Most Beneficent (SWT), our merciful, beneficent, astonishingly intelligent and benevolent Leader…

You bled for the people…

The Pharisees Are Still Mad, Ya Hugo: A Poem For El Comandante Chavez (rip) On His 6th Martyrdom Anniversary

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

From a Mud Hut, most humble and lovestruck, you rose from nothing…

A poor, mixed boy with a baseball dream…

To a revolutionary legend that saw the Monsters’ ploys and strafed all schemes…

3isa al-Masi7’s (A.S.) point man in Latin America, there’s no discussion…

I’ve seen your smile put stars to shame, the glow that you glow’s robust and…

In spite of the Dragon breathing down your neck with a fire that’s so disgusting…

Feeling the burn, but your skin didn’t char in the slightest…

A superhero, too burly…

To be pushed around by the Hebraic men and Jew-girlies…

That dictate hegemony and and assassinate anyone tarring and marring their vice-grip…

You stood, threw bolts of Pure Resistance like an angel-gunner, and from your harp there was lightning…

Avatar of Bolivar…

Hands, feet and mandibles of José Gabriel Túpac Amaru…

Soldier, nay, General of the One God (SWT) and His Brightness…

The sparking and heartbeat…

Of José Martí…

When you spoke, the Earth trembled ’cause you survived every hardship and crisis…

Under Siege But Undeterred, Yemen’s Ansarullah Rallies For Venezuela And Condemns US-Zionist Aggression

by Jonathan Azaziah

As usual, leave it to Yemen’s Mighty, Mighty Ansarullah to show the entire planet–especially the increasingly apathetic Arab-Muslim part of it–what principled Anti-Imperialism, unrelenting Anti-Zionism and true Striking Star Solidarity with another oppressed nation look like. Last week, Yemen’s defenders held a massive rally for Venezuela, condemning US-Zionist aggression against the Bolivarian Revolution in the harshest possible terms and letting Nicolas Maduro know that he, as well as the Venezuelan people, have friends, comrades and family on Yemeni soil. The Ansarullahis mocked the Tangerine Terrorist Donald Trump. They trampled upon the American and ‘Israeli’ flags. They displayed portraits of Nicolas Maduro and El Comandante Hugo Chavez (rip). Nasserists and socialists of various types joined in–an example of the Houthiyeen putting politics aside for the sake of fighting the Imperium. Pictures of Fidel Castro (rip) could be seen too. The Yemeni and Venezuela flags were rocked together in a sea of Sarkhas. Beauty doesn’t even come close to describing it.

A Kashmiri Perspective: Can You Hear Me? I Am Yemen!

(Editor’s note: One of the original goals of Mouqawamah Music was to open up a space for Resistance-minded writers from all over the world, especially where Empire Zionica is dishing out the worst forms of oppression, so they can speak unfiltered and further unite the peoples and struggles challenging hegemony. This sad yet beautiful piece by Kashmiri activist and commentator Mohammad Umms Rafiq, who is also an MBBS student studying in the Islamic Republic of Iran at the Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, encapsulates this idea entirely. May the Kashmiri people achieve Azadi from their Indian terrorist occupiers and may the ever-resilient people of Yemen see salaam in their homeland in 2019, after four years of Zio-carnage. Small edits were made for accuracy. We say Striking Star Salute to brother Mohammad for sharing his perspective with us. ~ Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah)

by Mohammad Umms Rafiq

Children’s Day is celebrated every year on the birthday anniversary of first Indian Prime Minister and leader of Indian Freedom movement, because of his love and special attachment with children.

I am not going to criticize anyone here, but I will just try to highlight those things which have left everyone especially children in isolation, bloodshed, inhumanity, hatred, fear and depression.

For the sake of power, children are being used, their future is being sacrificed for worldly gains by insane people with tyrannical hearts.

Revenge is another terminology used by these heartless, cruel people which they impose on innocent hearts from early childhood in the modern era.

Children are dependent on the care, love, empathy and attention of adults who love them but their attachments are frequently disrupted in times of war, due to loss of parents and use of brutal force on their families by oppressors. Emotional unavailability of distracted or depressed parents leaves these innocent souls in complete despair and hopelessness. Most of the children are “unaccompanied children” in this war game because of the loss of adults (meant for the protection and care of children). As a result, we can see “refugee-like situations” in every warzone and battlefield.

When Paradise Was Born: A Poem For Lady Fatima al-Zahra’s (A.S.) 1404th Birthday

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Our moral compass, you so are…

The Zahra (A.S.) is the combined Nour of every known and unknown star…

And through your example, we seeds will become trees and grow large…

A Forest of Fatemiyoun, an Army of Photons…

Blessed be the day you were born, ya Kawthar (A.S.)…

Guided by your Hand, see our uniforms? It’s sewn on!…

He who angers you, angers Al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.), so he who angers you is a low dog…

Scream your name at the oppressors even with a tongue cut, a jaw broke and a nose clogged…

Lost in the plots and woes imposed against us by our foe, ZOG…

But you mentor us and center us, like Islamic Sonar…

Blessed be the day you were born, ya Kawthar (A.S.)…

Happy 82nd Birthday To Shahida Bint al-Houda, Sayyeda Amina Haydar al-Sadr (R.A.): A Manifestation Of Lady Zaynab (A.S.) For The Ages

by Jonathan Azaziah

No Martyrs Gallery. No Pantheon of Heroes. No Fortress of Legends. And no Hall of Revolutionaries would be complete without Sayyeda Amina Haydar al-Sadr (R.A.), known to many as Shahida Bint al-Houda. She was born on this day 82 years ago in the holy Iraqi city of Kazimiyeh, under the illuminated minarets of the shrine of her great ancestor Imam Moussa al-Kazim (A.S.), where she would visit often in her adult days to pray and meditate. She was named after the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) mother because her father, Ayatollah Sayyed Haydar al-Sadr (R.A.), a profound Islamic authority and one of the intellectual architects of the 1920 Great Iraqi Revolution of 1920 against the British colonizers, intended for her to be a mother of a pivotal movement–man, was he right! He died when she was only two years old.

It was her mother Umm Isma’il (R.A.), the daughter of Ayatollah Sheikh Muhammad Rida al-Yassin (R.A.), and her brother, Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), the “twin of her soul” as she called him and Iraq’s greatest Martyr in the modern age, who would teach her the religion of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) from the moment their father passed. She was incandescently bright and showed an otherworldly talent for writing–which only expanded as she got older–along with abyssal Islamic insight. She loved to read as well, drawing on the commandment of Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) to read and deepen the knowledge-well at every turn. The little bit of pocket money that she was allotted every month was spent on books.

Venezuela Stands With Palestine And The Resistance Axis, That’s Why It’s Under US-Zionist Assault

by Jonathan Azaziah

Came across this picture earlier and it served as a Brobdingnagian reminder as to why the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the legacy of Chavismo are under assault from World Zionism. Yes, the Monroe Doctrine, Roosevelt Corollary and Venezuela’s oil reserves, which are the world’s largest, are all reasons for the Great Satan, as the world’s hegemon, to seek liquidation of this major oppositional force against its designs on Latin America. But these matters all require nuance–nuance which will we tackle in the conclusion of this essay to put the cherry on top of the Anti-Parasitic sundae.

The Venezuelan government position is that “Zionism is our enemy, because Zionism is an expression of Imperialism.” Considering that America, the globe’s number-one imperial regime, is the “virtual engine of Rothschild power” due to “Rothschild influence within”, and represents “New Babylon” in the Judaic worldview as well as the “force to be utilized in achieving the NWO”, as Anti-Zionist American patriot Michael Collins Piper wrote on page XIV of the introduction of his book, “The New Babylon: Those Who Reign Supreme – A Panoramic Overview of the Historical, Religious And Economic Origins of The New World Order “, we would concur with that assessment. Bolivarian Command of Telecommunications official Leonardo Molina said just two Marches ago at a celebration for the DFLP’s founding that, “The struggle of the Palestinian people is now more than ever an example for all humanity.” We couldn’t agree more on that point either.
