Happy Birthday To Imam Hassan al-Mujtaba (A.S.), The Will Of The Ummah!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Happy, happy birthday to Imam Hassan al-Mujtaba (A.S.), the Will of the Ummah, the second Imam of we Shi’a and one of the two Chiefs of the Youth of Paradise beloved by all Muslims. Too often we neglect the contributions of Imam Hassan (A.S.) to Shi’a thought and Islamic Liberation Theology more generally. Even though he had every right, both Qur’anically and politically, to fight the despotic usurper Muawiyah for his treachery, his oppression, his disconnection from our Deen and unspeakable crimes against the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) sanctified Household (A.S.), he decided to put forth a Peace Treaty instead and spare Muslims anymore bloodshed and destabilization. He exercised Strategic Patience or better still, what Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei calls Heroic Flexibility, i.e. making decisions in the face of all odds to resist tyranny but nevertheless still seeking resolutions without reaching for one’s (proverbial) sword. Indeed, in the most difficult of circumstances, it is Heroic Flexibility/Strategic Patience that requires an even deeper Mouqawamah Consciousness and an even more ironclad steadfastness. Truly, there is nobody in the history of Islam after the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself that has more resolve, courage and patience than Imam Hassan (A.S.) Lest we forget that Imam Hussein (A.S.) followed his brother’s lead in the latter’s attempts to facilitate salaam. And lest we also forget that Imam Hassan (A.S.) still died the dignified and dauntless death of a hero like his father before him and his brother after him, achieving martyrdom after being poisoned by the accursed tyrant Muawiyah.

Tenth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Malcolm Latif Shabazz

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Not much longer now, y’all! “Eternally Husseini” is just 16 days away!

But I do not write to you today from the apex of triumph and defiance that informs much of our identity as Shi’a. Instead, I write to you from the other side of the spectrum which is also very much a part of our being as the soldiers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.): Agony, tragedy and heartbreak–all felt with unimaginable intensity by Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72 on Ashoura. For today is the 4th anniversary of the martyrdom of Malcolm Latif Shabazz (R.A.), the grandson of our eternal revolutionary teacher Hajj Malik el-Shabazz aka Malcolm X (R.A.) Young Malcolm was murdered under exceptionally murky circumstances in Mexico City, where he had traveled to express solidarity with a deported labor organizer as well as to build a broad coalition of strugglers against Zio-Imperialism, from the oppressed Mexican people to oppressed Muslims in the US. No such bridges were constructed however because the sole male heir of Malcolm X was beaten to death outside a bar, of all places. The official story shall not be repeated here because it shall not be dignified with a retort. In the same vein, the Zionist media’s coverage of Young Malcolm’s martyrdom was so insanely execrable, deliberately deceptive and overtly racist, with particular malice towards his blessed family, that it too shall not even be dignified herein.

From Zakzaky’s Wrongful 15 Months In Prison To Slaughtered Pilgrims In Damascus, “The Ummah” Still Doesn’t Care About Oppressed Shi’a

by Jonathan Azaziah

Yesterday in the Syrian capital of Damascus, Al-Qaeda detonated a roadside bomb and then unleashed a suicide bomber near the hallowed ground of Bab al-Saghir Cemetery, murdering over 74 innocents and wounding nearly 150 others. Among the martyrs are Iraqi and Iranian pilgrims as well as Syrian security forces who attempted to prevent the carnage from becoming even bigger. Today, we mark the 15th month that Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky of Nigeria has been wrongfully imprisoned in a Nigerian dungeon after US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed security forces carried out the Zaria Massacre on December 12th-14th, 2015. What both of these tragical and despicable events have in common is that “The Ummah” can’t seem to be bothered with either of them. And it most certainly, without even the thought of a question, is because the victims of each of these horrors are Shi’a.

Now 38 Years On, Iran And Its Islamic Revolution Kowtow To No One! Not Obama, Not Trump!

by Jonathan Azaziah

NOW 38 YEARS ON, THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION KOWTOWS TO NO ONE!

Donald Trump’s incessant barking against Iran has put him on the map as something equivalent to a whiny, rabid and diseased dog. And all around President Supercilious Orange are chicken-hawks itching to see the collapse of the Islamic Republic. Yes. A dog and some chicken-hawks. But in Iran, MIGHTY Iran, there were tens of millions of lions and lionesses on the streets today across 1,000 Iranian cities to commemorate 38 years of defiance; 38 years of independence; 38 years of RESISTANCE AGAINST THE GREAT SATAN. And what is the name of the group that these big cats travel in? PRIDE. The Iranian people have immovable, magnificent PRIDE in their Islamic Revolution and there is no threat from the American regime, whether the figurehead of Empire Judaica’s name is Trump or Obama, Bush Jr. or Clinton, Bush Sr. or Reagan or Carter, that will alter their identity which was forged with blood, martyrdom and the screams of “Ya Hussein (A.S.)!” Officials in the Trump regime, especially the war criminal trifecta of Mattis, Kelly and Flynn, along with MEK shills like Chao and Giuliani, and the murderous, Jewish supremacist sanctions czar Adam Szubin, actually thought the new economic terrorism imposed on Iran, which includes bans on medicines and medical equipment, would get the Iranian people to “fall in line”. Guess again, Zio-Imperialist scum! Continue reading Now 38 Years On, Iran And Its Islamic Revolution Kowtow To No One! Not Obama, Not Trump!

“Be”: An Islamic-Qur’anic-Poetic Tribute To Jesus Christ (A.S.), Prophet, Messiah and Palestinian Revolutionary

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

For Sayyed Mohamad Jawad Chirri (R.A.): Your inquires inspired fire. ALLAH yerhamou.
For ‘Isa al-Masih (A.S.): I look forward to meeting you one day iza ALLAH rad.
For my wife: Like many of my poems, this one was birthed by your inner beauty. I LoVe you so much habibty <3
And for The Bird: I pray you know how beautiful you are… Subhan’ALLAH.

“… He said, ‘So it is that Allah creates whatever He wishes. When He decides on a matter He just says to it ‘’‘Be’‘’ and it is.’” (The Holy Qur’an, Surah Al-Imran, Ayah 47)

“… ‘I have certainly brought you a sign from your Lord. I will create for you out of clay the form of a bird, then I will breathe into it, and it will become a bird by Allah’s leave.’” (The Holy Qur’an, Surah Al-Imran, Ayah 49) Continue reading “Be”: An Islamic-Qur’anic-Poetic Tribute To Jesus Christ (A.S.), Prophet, Messiah and Palestinian Revolutionary

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.”

Read the full text of the interview:

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.

Six Nigerian States Have Effectively Banned Shi’a Islam: Ring The Alarm And Raise Your Voice Against This Injustice

by Jonathan Azaziah

I don’t think people fully comprehend just how horrific the plight of the Nigerian Shi’a really is. Last month (October 6th to be exact), Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State–of which Zaria, the birthplace of Nigeria’s Shi’a community, is a major city–issued an order declaring the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), founded by unjustly imprisoned revolutionary Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, an “unlawful society whose activities are dangerous to the security and good governance of the state.” The order, using language identical to that of the murderous Zionist entity, referred to last December’s massacre of IMN members in Zaria, a killing spree tantamount to genocide, as “regrettable”. Membership in the IMN now carries a prison sentence of up to 7 years. And, to make matters worse, the ban has already become law in six other Nigerian states. Look at the carefully chosen, utterly malicious language that Buhari’s lackey uses – not group, organization or movement, but “society”. Why? I’ll tell you!

Muharram Kicks Off With Bloodshed In Baghdad But “Labaykah Ya Hussein!” Won’t Leave Our Tongues

by Jonathan Azaziah

Labaykah Ya Hussein (A.S.)! And rest in eternal serenity to the Shi’a martyred in the Iraqi capital earlier on this morning as they participated in Ashoura processions. Truly, I would have loved to strictly write that today, the beginning of Muharram, that month of red rain, martyrdom and the rise of saviors, marks that time 1,336 years ago when Imam Hussein (A.S.), the Master of Martyrs, the Blood Of The Lion, the Savior Of Islam and the Original Revolutionary, marched with his holy family and righteous companions, a small party of only 72, into the desert sands of Karbala and achieved martyrdom in the face of an army of tens of thousands led by the sadistic tyrant Yazid (L.A.) which sought to wipe out Islam as we know it; when the Imam and his partisans changed the meanings of heroism, dignity and resistance for all-time.

Eid Al-Adha Mubarak To The Forces, Nations And Peoples Of Resistance

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Eid al-Adha Mubarak to all, as well as your families, friends and beloveds, with a special Eid al-Adha Mubarak to the forces, nations and peoples of Resistance whose triumphs not only give us inspiration to do more and do better, but hope to fight on through what is undoubtedly the darkest time in humanity’s history, in which Earth’s Most Evil are globe holders and globe molders, and because of their transhistorical hubris proliferating due to their unprecedented wealth, power and influence, our globe smolders. But we have extinguishers, masha’ALLAH, and they, through their resistance, have given this filth the cold shoulder! It is they who we honor today as we celebrate Prophet Ibrahim’s (A.S.) selflessness and Prophet Isma’il (A.S.) transcending bravery’s peaks via his embracing of the prospect of martyrdom in the name of Islam; it is this spiritual heroism, embedded in the DNA of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) and its followers, that we are witnessing today regionwide despite the otherworldly caliber of International Zionism’s oppression.

Hizbullah Martyr Ali “Bilal” Saleh: One Man Army, Miracle-Maker and Superhero

by Jonathan Azaziah

If you don’t believe in miracles, it is only because you never heard of Ali “Bilal” Saleh. This legendary Hizbullah martyr, who was also known for being a leading moujahid on the Nabatiyeh front prior to the historic liberation of Lebanon in May 2000, singlehandedly changed the course of the 2006 July War. Before the aggression came to a close, the ‘Israelis’ (Unit 162) had made their way into the ultra-vital arena of Wadi al-Hujeir with a horde of their allegedly “invincible” Merkava tanks and were looking to set up shop on the Litani River, not only for military positioning but also for energy purposes, as stealing precious Lebanese water resources has always been a strategic goal of the Zionist occupation.

But Bilal, a glorious guerrilla veteran with genius-level battlefield intellect and the “eyes of an eagle” who had accuracy with projectiles unlike anything ever seen before in the Resistance’s history, was NOT about to let such a calamity happen on his watch. He declared that the advancement of the Zionists’ tanks had be halted and with his comrades wounded all around him, he adopted this mission as his alone. Bilal himself was hurt as well but it didn’t matter! He moved from Syrian-provided Kornet launcher to Syrian-provided Kornet launcher, neutralizing tank after tank while taking cover behind the rocks and trees of Lebanon’s heavenly landscape like the true son of the Jnoub he was; like a formidable, elusive, Mouqawamist ninja-jinn! For the last 30 years, the ‘Israeli’ military leadership has routinedly described Hizbullah’s moujahideen as “ghosts” the way they deliver an attack on a target and then collapse into the background like they never were even there to begin with. Ali “Bilal” Saleh, may ALLAH (SWT) be pleased with him, proved himself to be the Prince of the Ghosts. Continue reading Hizbullah Martyr Ali “Bilal” Saleh: One Man Army, Miracle-Maker and Superhero
