Sheikh Zakzaky Is Now Spending His 2nd Straight Ramadan Unjustly Imprisoned… Where Are The Muslims Speaking Up For Him?

by Jonathan Azaziah

As we reach the midway point of Ramadan, we come to an exceptionally dark and painful anniversary that all Muslims, regardless of their school of thought, should be reflecting on, praying about and doing everything in their power to change: It’s now been 17 months since Nigerian revolutionary shooting star Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky was unjustly thrown into prison along with his wife Sayyeda Zeenat, a giant in her own right, and several of his companions, directly after the US-Saudi-Zionist-backed Nigerian Army of criminals massacred over 1,000 of his partisans in Zaria. It is one of the most horrifying (ongoing) injustices of our time and yet, the overall response from Muslims in the Arab-Islamic world itself as well as the Western Diaspora has been a fusion of pathetic, shameful and abysmal. The silence on the Sheikh, a saintly personality who has brought millions upon millions of Nigerians to Islam, taught them how World Zionism dominates the globe and instilled in them a fierce commitment to the Palestinian cause, continues even at this moment in our Holiest of Holy Months.

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.

MossadDaesh Slaughters Dozens of Shi’a Muslims In Southern Iraq… Jummah Mubarak To Our Martyrs…

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to the blessed martyrs of today’s MossadDaesh attack on the Iraqi Shi’a Muslims of Moussayib near Karbala. At least 31 of our people have been slaughtered and more than 35 more have been wounded after ISIS unleashed a female suicide bomber in a crowded souk. Death toll is expected to rise. I have just three words for you Takfiri terrorist pieces of filth: HAYHAT MINNA ZILLA. You strike our women and children in markets as they fast, we will strike you in your bases and crush you. You blow yourselves up at an ice cream shop as our families are breaking their fasts, we will chase you down into the holes you crawled up out of and make sure you never emerge again. You harm the innocent and most defenseless among us, we will, whether your American-‘Israeli’-Saudi masters want it or not, eventually meet you on the battlefield and return you to the demons who spawned you. HAYHAT MINNA ZILLA. Continue reading MossadDaesh Slaughters Dozens of Shi’a Muslims In Southern Iraq… Jummah Mubarak To Our Martyrs…

Happy Resistance and Liberation Day 2017: There Would Be No Iraq If It Wasn’t For Hizbullah

by Jonathan Azaziah

One could write for days and for weeks, for months and for years about Hizbullah’s legendary triumph on this day 17 years ago. Lebanon was liberated from a 22-year Zionist occupation and for the first time in the history of the “Arab-‘Israeli’ conflict”, the usurping Jewish terrorists were not merely defeated but humiliated on such a grandiose scale after all the damage and casualties the Lebanese Islamic Resistance had inflicted on them, that they fled in the middle of the night like the cockroaches and rats they are. The Party killed the “Greater ‘Israel'” scheme dead in its tracks, inspired the Second Intifada in Occupied Palestine that ultimately led to the liberation of Gaza–which Hizbullah was hugely involved in–and gave hope to hundreds of millions of Muslims and Moustazafeen worldwide.

“Eternally Husseini”, Madd Cold’s New Album Fully Produced By Iron Galaxy, Is Officially Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Happy Resistance and Liberation Day y’all!

You’ve heard the singles. You’ve seen the promo artwork. And now… The wait is officially over. Without any further ado, I present to y’all my newest and perhaps best album to date, “Eternally Husseini”, fully produced by my dear brother and UK-based Pashtun-Shi’a super-producer Iron Galaxy. This project has been in the works for over a year and we have been through hardship after hardship to get it completed. But alhamdulillah a thousand times because VERILY WITH HARDSHIP COMES EASE and now, with our blood, sweat, tears and souls shed, it’s here. We chose to release it today, this most blessed and most glorious of occasions, Resistance and Liberation Day, when Hizbullah freed Lebanon from 22 years of Zionist occupation, because we hope, in the spirit of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance’s historic victory, that we will inaugurate a movement to liberate Hip-Hop from its Jewish/Corporate occupiers. To accomplish this, and no doubt there’s a long way to go, we also hope, and pray, that the barriers we break on this record for Yemen, Syria, Iraq, 9/11 truth, Palestine, Sheikh Zakzaky and Nigeria’s Shi’a and so much more, will inspire other MCs to shake off the shackles of political correctness and start rhyming like real revolutionaries instead of toothless colored proxies for the “left” wing of the Empire.

And please allow me once again to deliver Striking Star Salutes to all of the wonderful brothers who contributed. Without y’all, this joint wouldn’t have been the same and I would even say that it wouldn’t have ***been*** at all. So to the eloquent and smooth Navid Nasr, the sagacious and brilliant Nashid Abdul-Khaaliq, the genius and magnificent Trevor Labonte, the soulful and spectacular Rafiqi Green, the remarkable and righteous Yusuf Abdul-Mateen Trombly, the astounding and anomalous Khanverse KV, and last but never, EVER least, the unmatched and unparalleled Mohammad Hamza of Intifada Street, whose breathtakingly beautiful artwork took this album to a whole ‘nother level… THANK YOU. Thank you all so damn much from the very bottom of my heart. That’s that for the talk! Time to let “Eternally Husseini” knock so Iron Galaxy and I can take y’all on a journey unlike anything you’ve ever heard before!

Album can be purchased for a paltry $12.99 right here.

Fifteenth And Final Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Let the final piece of artwork mark the final countdown to “Eternally Husseini”! Now less than 2 days away!

Even though martyred Venezuelan President El Comandante Hugo Chavez (RIP) and Bolivian President Evo Morales aren’t Muslims nor mentioned by name on this album, Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza and I decided to include them in the promo and with the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword at that because they both stand for truth in the face of Washington’s aggressions and because they both represent the Husseini spirit in their cores. They were featured heavily on my previous record “Son of Kufa Vol. 1: Rise Of The Anomaly” and shouted out on “Globalized Yemen” off my lyrical dedication to the Yemeni people “Felicity Of The Oppressed”, and as far as myself, Iron Galaxy and Hamza are concerned, they are revolutionaries of the most exceptional caliber who put the vast majority of “The Ummah” to shame. Verily, with their words and actions, Chavez and Evo have not merely defied Zio-Imperialism but constructed remarkable Resistance infrastructures in their respective homelands and uplifted millions of their peoples from the squalor imposed on them–and the whole of Latin America–since the dawn of the colonialist era. Going even deeper, both Chavista Venezuela and Evo’s Bolivia have put their own lives on the line and that of their nations to uphold the Palestinian cause as well as to defend Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) living heirs, Hizbullah, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria. And truth be told, there is nothing more Husseini in this day and age than challenging the Yazid (L.A.) and Shimr (L.A.) of modern times, i.e. the usurping Zionist entity and every last one of its puppets. On that note, let it be remembered that Chavez holds the distinction of being the only head of state to ever be praised by Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah outside of the Resistance Axis.

Fourteenth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” is just a meager 96 hours away from release!

And what would an album with such a title be without the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei?! Depicted here once more by Dr. Ever-Brill aka Mohammad Hamza of Intifada Street, the Living Martyr–as he is known for surviving a car bomb attack by the US-‘Israeli’-backed, quasi-Marxist death-cult known as the MEK on June 27th, 1981 that left his right arm permanently damaged [side-note: he is shown with that very arm raised and holding the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword in the art because he is Defiance Incarnate!]–is not just the commander-in-chief of Iran’s righteous Armed Forces, Basij and Revolutionary Guard Corps. He is the commander-in-chief of the Global-and-Total Revolution against International Zionism and all of its marionettes in both the West and the East. He opens his mouth to SPEAK the purest of pure truths, we drop what we’re doing and listen. He puts pen to paper to WRITE the most pristine of pristine truths, we rush to our laptops and phones to read. He gives an order to resist this or that invader, this or that despot, and we follow it to the ends of the Earth with martyrdom in our hearts.

The Brotherhood Between Malcolm X (R.A.) and Dr. Mohammad Taki Mehdi (R.A.): How Shi’a Islam Changed Malcolm X Forever

by Jonathan Azaziah

To mark Malcolm X’s (R.A.) 92nd birthday, I’m going to go ahead and drop a gem on y’all that is going to both wow you and put a great many things into perspective about the revolutionary giant’s life and martyrdom–a gem that you’ve never encountered before because Saudi-funded “Muslim” groups and “Muslim” Brotherhood types have attempted to falsely and maliciously portray Malcolm’s reversion to Islam as a “victory” for Salafi-Wahhabism. While El-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz was indeed guided by the great Sunni scholars of Al-Azhar, and while he famously wrote in the Egyptian Gazette on August 25th, 1964 that he was trying with all his heart “to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim”, the man who had the most profound impact on him and who represented the guiding force that led him away from the heterodox beliefs of the Nation of Islam, was Iraqi-American Shi’a scholar, activist and father of the Arab nationalist struggle in the US, Dr. Mohammad Taki “M.T.” Mehdi (R.A.) Born in Karbala where his father owned a coffee shop and raised in New York City, M.T. was Husseini to the core and a towering figure himself, fiercely campaigning for the Palestinian cause until the day of his death and routinely exposing Zionist domination of media, politics and entertainment within the United Snakes of IsraHELL. He was harassed, bullied, attacked and there were multiple attempts on his life by Jewish terrorists throughout his time on this plane. The Iraqi legend first met Malcolm X in 1958 and they maintained close contact over the next 7 years.

Thirteenth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Malcolm X

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

“Eternally Husseini” is less than a week away now people! Y’all ready?!

It was on this day 92 years ago that the greatest revolutionary to ever live in the Western hemisphere was born: Malcolm Little aka Malcolm X aka el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz (R.A.) If you call yourself a radical or an activist and you happen to be on the microphone or on the boards, then you owe the entirety of your identity and existence to this man. We’d HAVE nothing and BE nothing without Malcolm X, beautifully rendered here yet again by the infinitely gifted, artistically remarkable Mohammad Hamza of Intifada Street. I mention Hajj Malik in both the opening track of the album, “Universal Anti-Parasitism”, and the closing joint, “When The Rocks & The Trees Cry”, but the truth is, I could write entire records about him alone and how much he means to me until the day that ALLAH (SWT) sends Malak al-Mawt (A.S.) for my soul. I’d be dead without Malcolm X. I don’t mean that hyperbolically, nor am I saying it for effect. I write that with all sincerity and with every atom of my being.

Nakba Day Special – Eleventh & Twelfth Pieces Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Are Now Out: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and Fathi Shaqaqi

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Y’all better have your calendars marked! “Eternally Husseini” is just 10 days away! And since today is the 69th anniversary of the Nakba, yours truly and Intifada Street’s Mohammad Hamza, who did both of these absolutely remarkable pieces, decided to release something special for the occasion: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and martyred Islamic Jihad founder Fathi Shaqaqi (R.A.)

Some may object to us displaying a Christian figure, even one as revolutionary as the Archbishop, with the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword but we wholeheartedly reject such objections and criticisms. The Zulfiqar Mic-Sword represents a person who speaks the truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.)–and who fights for truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.) And there are very few in the Arab-Islamic world who do either of those things quite like Atallah Hanna. This is a man who has spoken up in defense of Islam while many of his fellow clergymen cowered; who has exposed the Zionist plot to foment Muslim-Christian division when many other “Arabs” and “Muslims” and “Christians” signed on to the scheme; who has stood upright for the Syrian Arab Republic when too many “Palestinians” and other “Arabs” betrayed their brothers and aided the destabilization plot; and who has not stopped fighting for the Palestinian Right of Return when large chunks of the “Palestinian leadership” have sold out to the Zionist occupation. Lest we forget that it was a Lebanese Christian, George Jordac, who wrote the best biography on Imam Ali (A.S.), “The Voice of Human Justice”. And lest we also forget that Christians flock to Karbala every year for Arba’een. Indeed, Imam Hussein (A.S.) and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) are not merely personalities to be venerated solely by Shi’a nor just by Muslims but all of humanity. While I do not mention Archbishop Atallah Hanna by name on “Eternally Husseini”–he’s featured on another album of mine, “Enemy of the Entity”, in the closing track “Beautiful Corpse”–everything that he stands for is everything that the record embodies.
