First Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Art Is Out: Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” drops in 64 days!

There is no revolutionary as formidable, inspiring and important as Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. He stands as both a giant-like individual and an unstoppable spiritual force who is feared by his enemies and loved by his partisans. As the Ummah’s loudest and most eloquent voice for Yemen, the Ummah’s most steadfast champion of the Palestinian cause, the Ummah’s brightest beam of Anti-Zionism, the Ummah’s most fearless opposition to the House of Saud, and the liberator of Lebanon, he exemplifies everything Muslims and activists of all stripes should strive towards becoming. As I rhymed on my track “For the Sayyeds”, off my 2016 album for Yemen, “Exposed Saud as a pathetic embarrassment, shredded their arrogance/Sayyed you’re a legend and in Heaven no doubt the angels already built you sevens of the most splendid, incredible garrisons/”. It is for this reason, as we seek to leave our own legendary mark in the struggle against Zio-Imperialism, that Sayyed Hassan is featured so heavily in all aspects of “Eternally Husseini”. If there was any one person who represents Imam Hussein (A.S.) to the fullest in this epoch, it is Nasrallah, and if there was anyone who carries the Husseini spirit in his every word and deed, again, it is Nasrallah. When I write my bars, I carry him with me. When I lace up in the booth, I carry him with me. When I rip on stage, I carry him, one of a mere handful of Islamic warrior-saints in the last 1,000 years, with me. And I know that Mohammad Hamza, the brilliant artist (and my brother-in-arms) behind this gorgeous print and all the other “Eternally Husseini” artwork, does the same when he sits down with a blank canvas and gets to knocking out a masterpiece. “Labaykah Ya Nasrallah!” isn’t just a chant, it’s a way of life. And we will forever be at Sayyed Abou Hadi’s service until the casket drops. Beyond that too. He embodies the true meaning of “Eternally Husseini” and because of that, we emulate him in all that we do. #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon #HipHopHizbullah #MaddCold #HusseiniDayMay25th #LabaykahYaNasrallah

Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr’s Martyrdom One Year On: The Struggle Against Al-Saud Continues In His Memory

by Jonathan Azaziah

On this day one year ago, the monstrous Saudi regime crucified and beheaded Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr (R.A.), the Lion of Qatif, the Angel of Awamiyah, for the “crime” of protesting against the tyranny of the Wahhabi monarchy occupying the Hijaz. Nimr did not shed any blood. Nimr did not call for fitnah, nor sedition, nor unrest. His only “aggression” was raising his voice and when it hit the pinnacle of decibels, the tyrants not only in Riyadh but everywhere in our region trembled like leaves on dying trees in a windstorm. Al-Saud accused him of “seeking foreign meddling” in the Kingdom of Darkness but Nimr was the agent of no state; he was loyal to nothing and no one but ALLAH (SWT). The degenerate despots accused him of “disobeying the state’s authorities” but disobedience towards unjust “laws” and the even more unjust dictators who implement them is the duty of every Muslim who seeks to enjoin good and forbid evil, is is not? The fathers of terrorism accused him of “taking up arms against the state” but Nimr’s only weapon was his tongue.

Dazzling: Russian Shi’a March 79 Days In Subzero Temperatures To Reach Karbala For Arbaeen

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is not only one of the most dazzling sights to behold in 2016 but one of the most dazzling sights one will EVER behold. Pictured here are Shi’a Muslims from Russia traveling to Iraq’s Karbala for Arbaeen, a spiritual event which marks the end of 40 days of mourning after Ashoura, the day in 680 A.D. (61 A.H.) when Imam Hussein (A.S.) was martyred at the hands of the maniacal, drunkard, murderous bandit-tyrant Yazid (L.A.) These inspiring souls travel for 79 days in subzero temperatures, braving snowstorms and icy winds ON FOOT. They march from Moscow and Saint Petersburg into Azerbaijan, where they are routinely harassed by the Azerbaijani authorities which are aligned with the US ZOG and the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity. They defy this Zio-Imperialist abuse and walk onward until they reach the Islamic Republic of Iran, where they are warmly received and given food and drink to replenish them after the arduous journey. And then of course, the next stop is Iraq, where they walk just a couple hundred more kilometers before finally reaching the holy sands of Karbala and completing their epic-beyond-epic pilgrimage.

Yemenis Celebrate Mawlid al-Nabawi In Their Millions, Upholding Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) Revolutionary Legacy

by Jonathan Azaziah

Is there anything or anyone in this universe more remarkable than the people of Yemen? In defiance of Saudi Arabia’s bombs, in defiance of AQAP-ISIS terrorism, in defiance of an American-‘Israeli’ plot to divide their land into statelets, Yemenis marched through the capital of Sanaa’s ancient streets in their MILLIONS for Mawlid al-Nabawi. Just as the steadfast souls of the nation once known as Saba refused to be kept from their rights and rose up in revolution to depose US-Zionist-Saudi puppet Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi; and just as these militant marvels refused to be kept from the path of resistance in their righteous confrontation with the tyrannical Wahhabi invaders; and just as these chivalrous champions rebuked the idea of being disconnected from Imam Hussein (A.S.) and showed up millions-deep for Ashoura and Arbaeen, Yemenis rejected the very notion that they would be prevented from celebrating the birth of the man who is the heart, soul and backbone of their religion and their fiery socio-political ideology: Our precious, beloved, noble, Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)

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.

ISIS Murders 100 Shi’a Pilgrims In Iraq’s Hilla As “Vengeance” For Massive Defeat On Mosul-Raqqa Roads

by Jonathan Azaziah

Ungodly bloodshed today in Shomali, a village in the southern Iraqi city of Hilla. Heavy emphasis on ungodly. Around 100 Shi’a pilgrims were murdered when the demented filth of Daesh unleashed a suicide bomber on seven buses packed with pilgrims heading home from Arbaeen. Among the martyrs were Iraqis, Iranians and Bahrainis. These were peaceful souls, who were only in Iraq’s south to begin with because they were commemorating the end of the mourning period for Imam Hussein (A.S.); they died as true Shi’a. The blast was so huge, it engulfed a gas station and a local cafe. One must ask: What goes through the mind of a terrorist who blows himself up among the unarmed, the innocent, the faithful, the Godwary? Hmm? What exactly? Allow me to gladly enlighten: Wahhabism. Toxic, insane, destructive, crypto-Jewish Wahhabism. That’s what. The upper echelons of ISIS, whether in Iraq or Syria, are undoubtedly intelligence assets of Mossad, CIA, MI6 and MIT. But the rank-and-file running day-to-day affairs in Mosul as well as Raqqa and those fools becoming suicide attackers are brainwashed lock, stock and smoking barrel by the noxious, sectarian, genocidal ideology founded by the monstrous Saudi “royal” family and its network of mentally ill “clerics”. Wahhabism is what struck Hilla today and anyone who calls it anything else is a liar.

Millions of Pilgrims Mark Arbaeen In Karbala, Defying Daesh, ‘Israel’, the US ZOG and Saudi Arabia

by Jonathan Azaziah

Feast your eyes on a sight–beautiful, dazzling, shimmering Iraq–that can only be described as breathtaking. Over 20 million pilgrims from 60 different countries entered the holy Iraqi city of Karbala to mark Arbaeen today, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) martyrdom. It is not only we Shi’a who are marching and demonstrating on these santicified sands to celebrate the sacrifice, the heroism, the steadfastness and the RESISTANCE of Aba Abdallah (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, martyred at the hands of the maniacal tyrant Yazid (L.A.) on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians, Shabakis, Ezadis, Zoroastrians and even some Hindus too. Regardless of Islamic school of thought or faith, the people of spirituality, dignity and anti-oppression stand as one Husseini unit on Arbaeen because the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) is a symbol of defiance and rejection of despotism for all of humankind.

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

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!

Iraq: Daesh Murders Shi’a Pilgrims With Ambulance Bombs Today As US Air Strikes In Mosul Keep Killing Civilians

by Jonathan Azaziah

The perversions inflicted on Iraq by Daesh never cease to horrify, do they? Earlier on today, suicide bombers from the Zionist-US-GCC-created Takfiri terrorist group rammed ambulances– vehicles normally used to save lives–into the city entrance of Tikrit as well as a car park in the holy city of Samarra, slaughtering at least 31 innocents and wounding dozens more. The martyrs, including ten Iranians, were Shi’a pilgrims on their way to the shrine of the eleventh Shi’a Imam, Hassan al-Askari (A.S.), as preparations are underway for Arbaeen, the ceremony held to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period over the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (A.S.), not to mention the largest religious gathering in the world. Even as ISIS is being attacked from every side in Mosul, with the Iraqi army advancing on the eastern and western flanks of Iraq’s second city and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) clearing out the terrorist poison on the outskirts and in the strategic town of Tal Afar, the MossadDaeshis still manage to find time to torment civilians outside of the “conflict zone”–like their ‘Israeli’ masters across every inch of Palestine and their Saudi financiers in Yemen, it’s just what they’re programmed to do.
