Muharram From Occupied Kashmir: The Way Of Imam Hussein (A.S.) Is The Way To Azadi

by Jonathan Azaziah

We mourn this month for Imam Hussein and the Karbala 72, the peace, blessings and mercy of ALLAH (SWT) be upon them for eternity, recalling tragic heroes like Abdullah ibn Omayr Abou Wahab al-Kalbi, the Christian-turned-Muslim who was dismembered and beheaded after single-handedly killing dozens of Yazid’s (L.A.) mercenaries; Habib ibn Madhahir al-Assadi, the elderly warrior who led the Imam’s (A.S.) left flank and stayed by his side until martyrdom; Zuhayr ibn Qayn al-Bajali, a man who at first didn’t even want to speak to Aba Abdallah (A.S.), then wound up one of his fiercest defenders and the leader of his left flank as he divorced his own wife to fight with him on the Iraqi plains before being speared to death by Shimr’s (L.A.) savages; and many, many others.

Zionist-Phalangist Slaughter Of 3,500 Palestinians And Lebanese Shi’a At Sabra & Shatilah 36 Years Ago Invokes The Memory of Ashoura

by Jonathan Azaziah

Sabra and Shatilah Day. Very few sections of the calendar are associated with such sadness and savagery.

First though, a momentary flashback. When the Jewish terrorists who would found the artificial ‘Israeli’ regime began Plan D, i.e. the ethnic cleansing of Palestine aka the Nakba, there were a series of massacres they perpetrated that defied the parameters of humanity and reminded the world that Satan walks the Earth in human form. For Palestine itself, there was Deir Yassin, executed by the Stern and Irgun gangs, as well Dueima, carried out by the Haganah, in which upwards of 100 Palestinians were slaughtered, including children who were beaten dead with sticks and mothers and fathers who were pushed into their homes, locked in and dynamited.

For Lebanon, there’s Salha, where bloodthirsty Jewish colonizers marched 105 Lebanese men, women and children into the village’s small masjid and didn’t stop shooting until everyone was dead, along with Houla, where Jews burned 85 Lebanese civilians alive and ethnically cleansed nearly 11,000 Lebanese from their lands. In modern times, we think of the barbarity displayed in Jenin during the Second Intifada as well as Operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009 and Operation Mighty Cliff in the summer of 2014.

Yet nothing in the history of the usurping Zionist entity compares to the slaughter at aforementioned Sabra and Shatila which began on this day 36 years ago and ended on September 18th. The fanatical and hateful Phalangists, armed to the teeth, financed, trained and logistically supported by ‘Israel’, monstrously and sadistically slaughtered around 3,500 Palestinians and Lebanese Shi’a for 72 hours, engaging in the kind of debauched killing that you’d think only existed in horror movies. Pregnant women with their babies cut out of their stomachs. Men were sliced with knives from their genitals to their throats. Children had their skulls cracked wide open. Corpses were mutilated.

Yemen’s Ansarullah Fights Like Imam Hussein (A.S.) And Scores A Muharram Victory Over Al-Saud In Hudaydah’s Kilo-16

by Jonathan Azaziah

The curses of ALLAH (SWT) be upon the monstrous regimes of Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The blessings of ALLAH (SWT) be upon Yemen’s righteous Resistance forces led by Ansarullah. In what amounts to yet another crime against humanity carried out by Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, Kilo-16 in besieged Hudaydah was mercilessly bombed on Tuesday and at least 16 civilians were slaughtered. Dozens more were wounded and they are fighting for their lives right now in one of the many makeshift hospitals across Hudaydah, where hundreds of thousands of Yemenis are being starved to death by the US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed coalition of cowards. Following the atrocity, Ansarullahi legend and chief of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee in Sanaa Muhammad Ali al-Houthi said that the invaders’ attack was dangerously close to warehouses of humanitarian relief supplies and told them to beware of any further maneuvers.

Zaria Is Karbala: Sheikh Zakzaky, Now Unjustly Imprisoned For 33 Months, Embodies The Spirit Of Muharram

by Jonathan Azaziah

It is fitting that holy and somber Muharram comes just as we hit month 33–it is beyond an abomination of humanity that it has gone on this long–of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s unjust and entirely punitive imprisonment by the Nigerian ZOG. Along with thirsty and besieged Yemen and Gaza, there isn’t a place in the world that so similarly resembles Karbala on Ashoura more than the Nigerian Shi’a heartland of Zaria and there is no man whose sacrifices are so closely akin to those of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) than the Islamic Movement of Nigeria’s saintly leader. When we flashback to the Nigerian military’s savage and psychopathic attack against the innocents of the Husseiniyyah Baqiyatullah on December 12th-14th, 2015, in which over 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a were slaughtered, the 10th of Muharram in the year 680 becomes as vivid as if it was happening again right here… Right now… Right in front of your face.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s Muharram Tears Are Worth More Than Every Zio-NATO-GCC Fortune In The World

by Jonathan Azaziah

During the first ten days of Muharram, I’ve learned over the years that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s lectures aren’t really meant to be commented on. There’s too much knowledge, wisdom and Husseini luminosity to break down into an analysis that may only tackle a handful of gems when what he brings is akin to every rare mineral mine on earth combined. Watch for yourself. Listen. Listen again. Then listen once more. And learn. So no, this isn’t an overview. It’s just an observation. Seeing the Liberator of Lebanon overwhelmed with emotion and bursting into tears while talking about the events of Ashoura and the agony endured by Imam Hussein (A.S.) and his partisans… was moving on an indescribable level as we’ve never seen him quite like this before.

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.

One Year On Since IRGC Officer Mohsen Hojaji’s (R.A.) Martyrdom: A Stoic Glimmer In The Raging Abyss

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Take a look at his face and then note…

Not a flinch, not a wince, not even a pinch of fear as he has a blade to his throat…

Death sits upon him but it’s light as a feather…

‘Cause he knows he has eternity to spend with Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) and he’ll remain righteous forever…

He went to Syria to fight the Sufyani…

And smite the Anti-Christ Illuminati…

Strike back against the spiteful blight-like Yahoudi Lobby…

He gazed into Global Zionism’s blackened grill and didn’t blink…

He waded through Global Zionism’s bastions still and didn’t sink…

He didn’t think…

He didn’t wink…

He just fought, like it was Ashoura every noon and evening…

Like he was the Islamic Revolution breathing… Continue reading One Year On Since IRGC Officer Mohsen Hojaji’s (R.A.) Martyrdom: A Stoic Glimmer In The Raging Abyss

Following 3 Years and 4 Months Of Takfiri Siege, The Syrian Shi’a Of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya Are Finally Liberated

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to all you Mouqawamist-minded souls and a special… heartfelt… overjoyed… happily teary-eyed… and long-overdue basket of salaams right from the Heavens to the besieged Syrian Shi’a of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya… Who are… as of this moment… BESIEGED NO MORE! For the first time since March 28th, 2015, the people of these two steadfast towns are free from the clutches of Takfiri terrorism after being evacuated from Idlib into liberated Aleppo. For three years and four months, these unprecedentedly brave human beings endured near-daily shelling by the murderous, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-Turkish-backed Wahhabi scourge. They’ve also overcome starvation and various bouts of disease because the head-chopping, sectarian “rebels” prevented food and medicine from reaching them–war crimes against the very essence of the Shari’a these so-called “Islamist” gangs falsely claim to uphold. 121 buses and dozens of ambulances carried the men, women, children, elderly and wounded of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya away from the horrors they’ve survived, towards a new beginning where they can put back the pieces of their lives after everything that the Takfiris took from them. As the vehicles left, Zion’s mop-bearded mercenaries threw rocks at the buses and chanted anti-Shi’a slogans, showing one last time just how utterly low and un-Islamic they really are. Even in defeat, they couldn’t find any dignity or graciousness. Continue reading Following 3 Years and 4 Months Of Takfiri Siege, The Syrian Shi’a Of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya Are Finally Liberated

31 Months of Despair, 31 Months of Injustice: The Struggle Of Sheikh Zakzaky Rages Onward

by Jonathan Azaziah

As I’ve grown accustomed to saying and will continue to say, Jummah Mubarak to all and especially to the Islamic Movement of Nigeria and its patient-beyond-patient, resilient-beyond-resilient leader Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, who has now been locked in a dungeon by the Zionist-Saudi-US-backed collaborationist pig Muhammadu Buhari for 31 months. That’s right. 31 months… for zero reason whatsoever other than the fact that the Sheikh is a Mouqawamist thinker who encourages his partisans and allies to spiritually, intellectually and culturally challenge Global Zionism.

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.
