“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

RIP To Sheikh Rafid Al-Gharebawi: An Iraqi Hero And True Son Of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

Pains me greatly to say that Sheikh Rafid al-Gharebawi, a native son of Karbala as well as one of Iraq’s fiercest lions and most knowledgeable young moujtahids, has been martyred. The bloodthirsty killers of MossadDaesh kidnapped Shahid Rafid with the hope of extracting intelligence on numerous groups within the Iraqi Popular Mobilization. But the Sheikh, despite the torture that would be inflicted upon him by these demented Wahhabi monsters, refused to break and maintained silence even though this spelled his end. ISIS, infuriated with its failure, shot him in the head and then dumped his body on the streets of Baghdad. The Takfiri bastards of Yazid (L.A.) failed to realize that they were dealing with a man who knew only the way of the beaming, burning light that is Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), and there was nothing, literally NOTHING in the world that they could do, no matter how depraved, which would force him to deviate from his principles. The terrorist children of Yazid (L.A.) failed to realize that they were in the presence of a man who knew no other path but that of Imam Hussein (A.S.), whose motto was “Death with dignity is better than life with humiliation”; and there is no greater dignity than defending one’s people until life ceases to reside in one’s body. His sanctified sacrifice bears witness to this. Continue reading RIP To Sheikh Rafid Al-Gharebawi: An Iraqi Hero And True Son Of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)

The winter downpour, it’s quite…
Incredible, it’s you who made the ground roar with life…
The summer’s blessed shower…
Who gave the globe’s oppressed power…
The spring’s newness…
Whose very aura was so enchanting it could bring music…
Whose fearlessness left kings clueless…
The autumn’s wonder, beauty personified…
Who sowed hope in the broken, the downtrodden and the brutally colonized…
The red rose…
Whose fragrance gives breath to dead souls…
The tiny seed…
Eternal in nature, from you grew the most mighty trees…
The giant voice…
Whose sound is so loud it crushes crowns and any and all flags that the tyrants hoist…
The thunderous speech…
That shook thrones and made corrupt governments weak…
That shook drones and awakened the dumb as they were slumbering deep…
That made the plunderers weak…
The white light…
Who made the night bright…
The black blade…
Who left the vultures, the vipers, the hyenas and the rats slayed…
Justice in the flesh…
Every attribute of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) encrusted in your chest…
The shine of stars…
Whose vision was so strategic it exceeded telescopes that could see the other side of Mars…
The fire burning up the sires of entropy…
Who filled the Empire with enmity…
Because you made the Empire a memory…
And petrified the Zionist enemy…
To the point it began recognizing its chemistry…
As unstable, unsustainable, it wouldn’t be embedded in the future…
‘Cause the Seed From Which All Mighty Trees of Resistance Grow, said it was tumor…
Said it would vanish from the pages of time…
You were and are too amazing to ever rate or define…
Such a militant, phoenix-like, sensational rise…
Could have only come straight from the Creator Divine…
You were and are our most wonderful sage and sublime…
The instigator of historical changes that basically flowed with cadence and rhyme…
The obliterator of swine…
The maker of Revolution who gave us a reason to be unafraid and ALIVE…
Your spiritual children, those of Wilayat al-Faqih, grow everyday like they were berating the skies…
The Coast Redwood of Hizbullah, stands the highest, the most vibrant and pure…
The Mountain Ash of Ansarullah, moves untouched and achieves triumphs in the violence of war…
The Giant Sequoia of the Iraqi Resistance, fights like you taught them, so God-reliant and raw…
Sheikh Zakzaky the Southern Blue Gum, every precious word he speaks is so defiant and sure…
The Alpine Ash of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, every moujahid ready to die for the cause…
And Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, your reflection, guiding them all…
Ya Imam Khomeini (R.A.), 27 years ago your spirit had to go on…
But you’re still here, and we still cheer and rock to your every rhythm like a classical slow song…
Ya Imam Khomeini (R.A.), because of you we will liberate our world from those who think they’re “chosen” but they’re so wrong…
Like you, the Ever-Rushing River of Truth, we will flow on…
Because you, Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah (R.A.), are the Seed From Which All Mighty Trees Of Resistance Grow Strong <3

Sheikh Zakzaky Remains Imprisoned Nearly Four Months After The Zaria Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

Nearly four months have passed since the Zionist-controlled, Saudi-bought Nigerian military monstrously raided the residence of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, massacred hundreds (some accounts say thousands) of his partisans and locked up the Sheikh himself along with his wife on completely bogus charges. Where is the UN? Where is Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch? Where is the OIC? Where are the ‘Palestine solidarity activists’ coming to the defense of this fierce defender of the Palestinian cause? All rhetorical questions and the answer is a resounding NOWHERE.
