“Eternally Husseini” is now just 46 days away from release!
And since today marks 37 years after one of the most prolific revolutionary minds of the Arab-Islamic world was murdered in cold blood by the US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed tyrant Saddam Hussein, it is the perfect occasion to release the next masterpiece of my genius-artist comrade Mohammad Hamza’s “Eternally Husseini” series: Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. This great Iraqi Shahid, a man whose stature reduces planets to dust and suns to fragments, was abducted from his home–where he had been kept locked up on house arrest for months solely for his WRITINGS in support of Iran’s Islamic Revolution–on April 9th, 1980. He was then beaten, tortured and subsequently executed when Saddam’s thugs hammered a nail into his head. The Sayyed was also forced to watch his sister, Sayyeda Amina “Bint Huda” Haidar al-Sadr (R.A.), a towering Islamic scholar in her own right, get brutally murdered right before his very eyes. But what the Yazid-like despot Saddam and his Zionist masters failed to grasp is that someone like Sayyed Baqir al-Sadr is impossible to kill. For the legacy that he left was immortal. Among his students were Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Abbas Moussawi (R.A.), Sheikh Na’im Qassem, Sayyed Hashem al-Haidari and many others from Hizbullah and the Iraqi Resistance. It was this great Iraqi Shahid who wrote the constitution for the Islamic Republic of Iran. His critiques of both Western “socialism” and capitalism are rivaled by few not only in our region or even the Global South but the entire planet. Just as much as Imam Khomeini (R.A.), he is a godfather of Mouqawamah regionwide and the Muhammadi-Husseini blood which once ran through his veins was honored with his every deed.
All around us, we see the essence of Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr–a personality of such unique brilliance that he was already giving lengthy lectures on the Holy Qur’an, the virtues of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) and Islamic history at merely 10 years old–guiding our people to victory. He is depicted here with the Zuliqar Mic-Sword because his words, both when spoken and written, were (and remain) as devastating as Imam Ali (A.S.) when he wielded the legendary two-pronged blade against Khaybar and the other oppressors of Muslims. I quote him to open up the album’s ode to Iraqi unity, “We Are One Hand”, and carry his example in my soul and in every bar I pen. I pray, o’ Shahid, o’ Sayyed, o’ champion, o’ Ibn Hussein (A.S.), that our humble efforts honor your blessed, heroic sacrifice; I pray, with all my being, that we do justice to the concept of “Eternally Husseini” in just a fraction of the manner that you did. Insha’ALLAH khair ya Rab. Rest in eternal peace and power habibi Sayyed Muhammad Baqir. Iraq still has breath in its lungs today because of your sanctified blood. #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon #MaddCold #HipHopHizbullah #HusseiniDayMay25th #LongLiveIraq #SayyedBaqirAlSadrLives #WeAreOneHand
