With Muharram Upon Us, We Recall Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Thirst And We Fight For Gaza And Yemen

by Jonathan Azaziah

Muharram, the Islamic calendar’s pinnacle of heartbreak, is upon us. Its first ten days, culminating on Ashoura–when the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) grandson Imam Hussein (A.S.) was butchered and beheaded by the bloodthirsty, psychopathic tyrant Yazid’s (L.A.) accursed mercenary Shimr (L.A.) on the sands of Karbala in 680 A.D.–are the most excruciating of all. There are many a story to be told about what took place on Iraq’s bloodied southern battlefields 1,338 years ago.

From the brave ones like Jawn Ibn Huway’s (A.S.) angelic cries of poetry amidst the fight along with Abis ibn Shabib al-Shakiri (A.S.) taking off his armor and confronting the traitors of Kufa head on… To the melancholy ones like Ali Asghar’s (A.S.) tiny body being pierced with an arrow as well as the unspeakable repression of Lady Zaynab (A.S.) in the aftermath of the slaughter. But in this current climate, one that stands out in a rather massive way is Imam Hussein (A.S.) dying thirsty. That Yazid (L.A.) allowed the Chief of the Youth of Paradise (A.S.)–who Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) loved like his very own son and who said of him, “Whoever loves Hussein loves me, whoever is against Hussein is against me”–to be denied water, shows you how malevolent, despotic and rotten at the core he was.

Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.) Of Yemen: A Mouqawamist Godsend Who We Commemorate With Pride On His 14th Martyrdom Anniversary

by Jonathan Azaziah

Sayyed Hussein Badreddine al-Houthi (R.A.) wasn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill individual. He wasn’t even your typical revolutionary. Nor your classical militant. Not your quintessential Islamic liberationist challenging this or that colonizer either. He was from an essence of such uniqueness, such angelic substance that he can only be classified, qualified and described as a godsend. Indeed, a blessing straight from the realm of most merciful mercies designed by Al-Mountaqim (SWT) and a gift that caused all of the heavens to smile a smile of incandescence upon Yemen.

by Jonathan Azaziah

Eid al-Ghadeer Mubarak to the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah. The people, army, government and President of the Syrian Arab Republic, especially the steadfast citizens of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya who are celebrating their first Eid al-Ghadeer in 3 years and 4 months since the Zio-Takfiri siege was lifted.

by Jonathan Azaziah

Eid al-Adha Mubarak, Eid al-Adha Karim to all and a most unique set of tidings to Yemen’s righteous and resplendent defenders, Ansarullah; Lebanon’s brilliant and brave Men of God, Hizbullah; the unbreakable and unmovable soldiers of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps; the silent but strong and steadfast warriors of Pakistan’s Zaynabyoun; the unsung but undeterred heroes of Afghanistan’s Fatemiyoun; and Iraq’s glorious and gregarious guardians, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU/Hashd al-Shaabi). On this Celebration of Sacrifice, we remember these Pillars of Resistance whose sacrifices are unlike anything we’ve witnessed in our lifetime, our parents’ lifetime, or even our ancestors’ lifetimes going back a good thousand years. Truly unparalleled indeed. Continue reading We Have Eid al-Adha This Year Thanks To Imam al-Mahdi’s (A.S.) Men In Yemen, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq

After The School Bus Massacre In Yemen’s Saada, It’s Time The World Says “Death To Al-Saud!” With One Voice

by Jonathan Azaziah

The righteous wrath of ALLAH (SWT) and the crushing storms from His heavens be upon the accursed House of Saud. In what will register as one of the sickest, most twisted and most gruesome atrocities in the 3.5 years of its genocidal aggression against Yemen — which is saying quite a bit because there have been SO many ungodly massacres — the Wahhabi tyrants occupying the Hijaz bombed a school bus full of children in Saada’s Dahyan as it made its way through a market towards summer camp. Saudi Arabia murdered at least 51 kids in the air raid — the vast majority of them under 10 years old — and badly wounded over 79 other civilians — the vast majority of them kids under 10 years old too. The martyr count is going to go up because the injuries are horrific, the siege continues to cripple Yemen and the supplies necessary to save lives just aren’t available. Scenes of the carnage plastered all over social media are just about impossible to look at. Screaming and bleeding children. Tiny bodies blown to bits and missing limbs. Incomprehensible sadness on the faces of parents who lost what was dearest to them and medical professionals who couldn’t save lives despite their best efforts. The depth of depravity that one has to sink to murder children over… and over… AND OVER again… is unfathomable. And the evil and hellishness that have to exist in one’s mind to then actually rationalize the barbaric spilling of these little ones’ blood is irredeemable.

Mystery Solved: 30 Years Ago Today, Pakistani Shi’a Giant Syed Arif Hussain Hussaini Was Assassinated By RAW and Mossad

by Jonathan Azaziah

After 30 years of mystery, speculation, frustration, bungled prosecutions, misinformation, disinformation and outright hasbara, we now know exactly who murdered Tehrik-e-Jafaria Pakistan leader and Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) most trusted and beloved Pakistani representative, Sheikh Arif Hussain Hussaini (R.A.): The illegitimate ‘Israeli’ regime’s Mossad and Hindutvadi India’s RAW. Mere days after Hussaini’s martyrdom on August 5th, 1988, the Pakistani Interior Ministry placed blame squarely on a “hostile foreign power”, but never identified it. Just a week and a half following the towering Muhammadi-Husseini figure’s death, officials from the Pakistan’s Justice Ministry appeared on multiple TV channels in Tehran and said Hussaini was the victim of “a plot hatched by foreign powers”. When asked who these entities were, the ministry-men vaguely said, “some forces sitting in Afghanistan”–which could mean anyone and anything.

Happy 1,253rd Birthday To Imam Reza (A.S.)! Remember His Example As We Confront The Tyrant Of Zionism Today!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Congratulations to the entire Ummah on the 1,253rd birthday of Imam Ali ibn Moussa ar-Reza (A.S.), the 8th Imam for we Jaafari/Twelver Shi’a and a figure beloved by Zaydi Shi’a, numerous Sufi orders and many Sunnis too. The Marvel of Medina, the Tower of Knowledge, the Mountain of Wisdom, the Crown of Cures, the Master of Medicine, the Ruby of Resistance, Imam Reza (A.S.) was a figure as prolific in his dissemination of different aspects of exoteric and esoteric ‘ilm and hikmah as he was in his steadfast stances against tyranny. There are true scholars from the Hawzas in Iraq, Iran and Yemen infinitely more eloquent and exuberantly more capable than me in telling you what the virtues of the Imam (A.S.) are as well as all the intricate details of his magnificent 53 years upon ALLAH’s (SWT) Green Earth. So instead I will just relay a moment that has always resonated with me, especially considering what we are contending with as we speak. Continue reading Happy 1,253rd Birthday To Imam Reza (A.S.)!

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.
