Muslim Press Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Arbaeen, Iraq And Islamic Unity

In an interview with Muslim Press, Muslim poet Jonathan Azaziah says, “This year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet.”

Muslim Press: Millions of Shia Muslims have defied ISIS terror attacks by visiting the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Arbaeen. How do you see this event?

Jonathan Azaziah: I see it in an ultra-straightforward manner: It’s the most beautiful thing in the world! You have more than 20 million human beings, mostly Shi’a Muslims of course, but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians of all stripes, Shabakis, Ezadis and even a handful of Hindus, traveling to the holy sands of Karbala to renew their commitment to the person of Imam Hussein (A.S.), the original revolutionary; the primordial defier of tyranny; the master of martyrs and the grandsire of resistance. Ever since Aba Abdallah (A.S.) achieved victory through his sacrifice on Youm al-Ashoura in 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), a divide has existed in the world that can accurately be described as the Husseini-Yazidi split. Those who stand with justice are the partisans of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and those who stand against what is right are the partisans of the degenerate despot Yazid (L.A.) Anyone who would attempt to harm the former–i.e. these beautiful people, these souls of remarkable spirituality who love Imam Hussein (A.S.) more than they love anything–are agents of evil. And of course, from the modern geopolitical perspective, this year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet. Yet this dazzling event remains largely under the radar among Western audiences on the one hand due to extraordinarily limited (essentially nonexistent) media coverage and primarily unknown to Arab-Islamic audiences outside of the Shi’a school of thought on the other hand because of the slanted, shameful, sectarian “reportage” from the likes of brutal dictatorships Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Subhan’ALLAH: Supermoon Meets The Shrine Of Abbas (A.S.) Just Days Before Arbaeen

by Jonathan Azaziah

You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more beautiful. The November 2016 Supermoon is seen here meshing with the skyline of the shrine of Al-Amar (The Moon) aka Abou Fadhl al-Abbas (A.S.), in the holy Iraqi city of Karbala, just days before Arbaeen. This is truly a “subhan’ALLAH” moment where the grand designs of our Creator (SWT) and the gorgeousness of the Earth He (SWT) molded fuse with political realities, both past and present, to send a missive to those Moustakbireen (oppressors) who desire nothing more than to see our fire extinguished. But this fire that we Husseinis have is a conflagration that eternally burns! Indeed, if the moon itself can ascend to super status just to catch a glimpse of its human counterpart, our beloved Abbas (A.S.), the lionhearted protector of Imam Hussein (A.S.), before reverting back to its normal form, then how will Daesh–the Sufyani of this Halakhic-Dajjalic system–stop the trailblazing, soul-shining march of AT LEAST 30 million believers converging on Karbala? Answer: ISIS can’t halt a damn thing. Continue reading Subhan’ALLAH: Supermoon Meets The Shrine Of Abbas (A.S.) Just Days Before Arbaeen

Now 10 Months Since Zaria Massacre And Arrest Of Zakzaky, Brutal Oppression Of Nigeria Shi’a Continues

by Jonathan Azaziah

Between December 12th and December 14th of 2015, the Nigerian army carried out one of the most barbaric atrocities in recent memory as it shot, bulldozed, beat and maimed hundreds (and possibly thousands) of Nigerian Shi’a to death at the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah in Zaria. Thousands of others were wounded and at least 705 innocents on top of that have been disappeared. The slaughter concluded with Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, Africa’s most important revolutionary, being unjustly imprisoned alongside his wife and several of his companions. Fast forward 10 months later, and not only are the Sheikh and his dearest ones still imprisoned, still tortured and still in terrible health as a result of these aggressions, but the Nigerian army– an institution of oppression backed, armed, trained and financed by the American regime, the usurping Zionist entity and the Saudi Kingdom of Darkness–is at it again, carrying out yet another massacre of Nigerian Shi’a as they were mourning for Imam Hussein (A.S.) At least 14 unarmed demonstrators, including several women, were shot dead at Ashoura processions in Funtua and Kaduna on Youm al-Ashoura.

Deviant, Disturbing Innovations Of Tatbir and Zanjeer Are Promoted By Zionist Media To Spread Shiaphobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

To all my non-Shi’a Muslim brothers and sisters as well as my non-Muslim comrades: DO NOT FOLLOW THE SHAMEFUL ZIONIST MEDIA AND THE EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA (here’s looking at your despicable “reportage” RT and Sputnik) ABOUT WHAT SHI’A MUSLIMS DO ON ASHOURA. The bloody pictures that are being promoted across the spectrum of extremist Shi’a disgustingly self-flagellating and cutting their children DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT represent Islam in any way, shape or form, whether the Shi’a school of thought or otherwise. These barbaric practices, known as Tatbir and Zanjeer, are alien to Islam and have been forbidden by just about major Shi’a authority on the planet, including (but not limited to) Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari and others.

The Quintessential Ashoura Anthem Is Here: “Blood Of The Lion”, Second Single Off “Eternally Husseini”

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Salutations brothers and sisters! On this most revolutionary day, this most magnificent occasion, this 1,336th Ashoura when blood triumphed over the sword–to borrow the expression of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah–and Imam Hussein (A.S.) as well as his partisans achieved martyrdom at the hands of the vile Yazid (L.A.) on the hallowed ground of Karbala, I present to y’all my soul on wax; my beating, bleeding heart in lyrical form; an ode to Abou Abdallah (A.S.) to end all odes: “Blood Of The Lion”, the second single off my upcoming album “Eternally Husseini”, produced entirely by my extra-exceptionally gifted dear brother Iron Galaxy and filled with the illustrious artwork of Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza. This song–which is more like a Hip-Hop Nasheed than a traditional grouping of bars and hooks–doesn’t merely encapsulate the pain of the 10th of Muharram and apply that agony to the difficulties we are warding off today as an Ummah generally and as Shi’at al-Hussein specifically, it bangs like Hizbullah rocketry crashing down on occupied Haifa and making the settlers run for their miserable lives!

On Ashoura Eve (Tasu’a), Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Reminds Al-Saud That “We Are All Yemen!”

by Jonathan Azaziah

Leave it to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Luminous Light of Lebanon, to turn Tasu’a, the 9th Day of Muharram and what we call Ashoura Eve (the 24-hour period before Imam Hussein’s [A.S.] martyrdom on the sands of Karbala), into a bonafide, empire-shaking spectacle of Mouqawamah. The Hizbullah Secretary-General covered the usual array of topics as he appeared live before a blistering crowd in Dahiyeh’s Sayyed al-Shouhada Complex, saluting the Syrian people for their steadfastness in the face of the “regime change” conspiracy and lambasting the American ZOG for attempting to break off Raqqa and Deir Ezzor from Syria in service of ‘Israel’, but it was when the Sayyed touched on Yemen that those in attendance really went HAYWIRE, masha’ALLAH! The moment that Sayyed Abou Hadi slammed the Saudi regime for its criminal massacre at the funeral in Sanaa three days ago, the gorgeously resistant people of the Southern Beirut Suburbs started chanting, “Death To Al-Saud!” So loud were their cries in fact that the Wahhabi tyrants themselves could most likely hear it in their fortified but finite palaces in Riyadh and Jeddah! And when Nasrallah bellowed “Koulina al-Yemen (We Are All Yemen)!” like only he could bellow, the crowd cried out in unison and erupted even further, like a zillion bursts of thunder rattling the skies. Lubnan’s Liberator said that the blood of the Yemeni people will drag Al-Saud into the abyss of history and that it has no chance whatsoever of prevailing. The Moustazafeen of Yemen, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah matter-of-factly said, will be and already are victorious. Like he has been Palestine’s undisputed champion for decades, the Sayyed is, without a doubt and without competition, the foremost champion of Yemen on Earth.

Syrian Shi’a Of Al-Foua’a And Kefraya Commemorate Ashoura In Spite Of Ongoing Takfiri Siege

by Jonathan Azaziah

Just as Imam Hussein (A.S.) and his Party were surrounded from all sides by the shaytanic army of Yazid (L.A.) in Karbala on Ashoura, today the Syrian Shi’a in the Idleb villages of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya are besieged from every direction by the Takfiri terrorist scourge. But in defiance of all the grisly trauma that they have been enduring at the hands of Jabhat al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and other “moderate” barbarians since March 2015, these brave humans pictured here, who represent the flesh-and-blood reenactment of the Karbala 72’s incomparable sacrifices, are continuing to hold Ashoura processions as we speak. Masha’ALLAH! Like the partisans of Imam Hussein (A.S.) were deprived of water by the enemies of Islam, the people of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya have been disconnected from all the most basic necessities by the US-‘Israeli’ Empire’s Wahhabi proxies, but still they haven’t let the Ashoura commemorations be halted! Like Abou Fadhl al-Abbas (A.S.) and Ali Akbar (A.S.) heroically fell in hails of arrows, the people of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya face near-daily shellings and have buried hundreds of martyrs, but still they haven’t let the Ashoura commemorations be stopped!

Suicide Attack In Kazimiyeh Today, But Iraq Will Not Be Disconnected From Its Resistant Identity

by Jonathan Azaziah

If you filled up the infinity of space with the cries and screams of the Iraqi people, the universe would prove to be too small and incapable of holding our agony; the jagged edges of our annihilated culture and devastated history would tear the masses of stardust asunder. More gut-wrenching suffering in the homeland today as one of Daesh’s maniacal terrorists carried out a suicide attack in the holy Shi’a city of Kazimiyeh, slaughtering at least 15 civilians and wounding over 30 others. The moment we exhale the toxic fumes that flare up in one explosion, our lungs are pierced with the poison of another and we temporarily forget that fresh air untainted by Zio-Wahhabi bloodthirstiness even exists.

Karbala Bombing: Not Even On Ramadan Does ISIS Let The Iraqi People Rest

by Jonathan Azaziah

DEATH TO DAESH. Not even on Ramadan does the Takfiri trash leave the Iraqi people alone. At least 5 innocents were murdered and more than 11 others were wounded earlier on this afternoon when a cowardly ISIS terrorist snuck into the holy city of Karbala and detonated a car bomb. The attack occurred a mere five kilometers from the shrines of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and Abou Fadhl al-Abbas (A.S.), not to mention right next to the house of Karbala Governor Aqeel al-Tourayhi. It is pathetically obvious that this hideous assault on civilians as they fast for Islam’s Holiest Month is the extent of MossadDaesh’s “response” to the ongoing liberation of Fallujah. The Takfiris are too inept, too weak and simply too gutless to stand and face our mighty moujahideen, the Iraqi Popular Mobilization, like men on the battlefield so they resort to what their ‘Israeli’, American ZOG and Saudi masters trained them to do: Inflict terrorism and spread fitnah. Let this be a reminder to all “geopolitical analysts” commenting on affairs in my homeland that the Wahhabi-Zionist fanatics of the “Islamic” State are about as “Islamic” as ‘Israeli’ Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who says it’s a “mitzvah” to slaughter Palestinians. He most certainly thinks it’s a “mitzvah” for the Zionists’ Takfiri proxies to slaughter Iraqis too. Continue reading Karbala Bombing: Not Even On Ramadan Does ISIS Let The Iraqi People Rest

Bloodshed In Baghdad But Love For Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) Will Triumph Over Daesh’s Hate

by Jonathan Azaziah

My heart feels like it has hundreds of daggers in it after the carnage inflicted upon Iraqis in Baghdad this morning. ISIS unleashed three car bombs, one in Shi’a Sadr City which murdered over 64 innocents, another in mostly-Shi’a Kazimiyeh which claimed over 18 lives, and the final one in mostly-Sunni Jamiya which killed at least 7 civilians, displaying for the umpteenth time that no matter what our Islamic school of thought is, the hateful Takfiri monster, which is absolutely antithetical to Islam, slaughters us all the same. Among the Sadr City martyrs are brides and grooms who planned on marrying today and the death toll in all three areas is expected to rise as the wounded count is in the hundreds, including children. Is there anything more depraved than this? Is there any malevolence in the world that supersedes Daesh apart from its invading, genocidal, world-controlling Zionist-Imperialist masters?

And the reason for today’s atrocities couldn’t be more obvious. Because ISIS, the Frankenstein of Mossad, CIA and the dirty Saudi tyrants, has no reach in southern Iraq and couldn’t prevent the millions of Iraqis as well as Lebanese, Pakistani, Afghani and Iranian pilgrims from making their way into Karbala for the birthday of Imam Hussein (A.S.), these agents of Dajjal did the only thing they know how to do, indeed what they were BRED to do by Empire Judaica: Murder, murder, murder, as a means of instilling so much fear in the Iraqi people that they will cower into a corner and accept whatever the American ZOG demands of them, be it the relinquishment of our resources, lands and sovereignty, or the acceptance of what Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) called “American Islam”, i.e. a non-resistant, toothless, non-substantive, soulless, NON-HUSSEINI version of our religion which will lead us into endless servitude.

Well, I hate to disappoint you Wahhabi cockroaches, but this just isn’t going to happen. Not in this life, the next, or ever. On the contrary, Iraqis, in all their Husseini glory, will continue bashing your demented, sectarian heads in across every single front in our country as well as Syria where we are fighting alongside the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah, the IRGC, the Syrian Arab Army and Palestinian Liwa Al-Quds. AND! We’re going to keep the celebration in Karbala going too! For we still have to commemorate the birthdays of Abou Fadhl al-Abbas (A.S.), the lionhearted brother of Imam Hussein (A.S.), and Imam Zayn al-Abideen (A.S.), the son of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the fourth Shi’a Imam who refused to stop his eloquent du’a and adherence to the ways of his father despite all of Yazid’s torment and oppression. So do your worst Daesh; your bombs, bullets and bloodshed are ultimately like rain drops in the ocean when compared to the love that the Iraqi people have for Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) And as the millions on the holy streets of Karbala are proving to you and your ‘Israeli’-US-Saudi overlords, love triumphs over hate each and every day of the week.
