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.

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.

“Long Live Syria III (Our Backbone)”, 3rd Single Off “Eternally Husseini”, Is Officially Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Syria is, as I once described it on a previous song, “The heaven on earth that every man imagines/Graveyard of empires, land of jasmine/Genesis of civilization and the patron of resistance/Hallowed ground of the ancients and the scriptures/More than just a state, it is the basis of existence/Mother of the East, Father of the West/To the martyr, it is the harnesser of breath and to the invader it is the harbinger of death/” In short, Syria is EVERYTHING. It is for this reason that I wrote “Long Live Syria” almost four years ago. Then, because of the hideous failure of so-called “Anti-Imperialists” to expose the Zionist-Saudi chemical weapons false flag in Eastern Ghouta in August 2013 for what it was, I wrote the infinitely more vicious and enraged follow-up, “Long Live Syria II (Stay Silent O’ Cowards)” – of which the aforementioned lyrics are taken from. And yet here we are, three years after that, and the Western-Zionist-GCC media’s propaganda war on Syria continues unabated, as does the complicity of many segments of the “activist” population, Muslims and non-Muslims, Arabs and non-Arabs alike. This comes in spite of the fact that the Syrian Arab Republic has defended Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine and supported the resistance movements in the latter two with arms and blood.

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

Defying The US ZOG and Takfiri Tyrant Erdogan, Hashd al-Shaabi Begins Fight For Tal Afar

by Jonathan Azaziah

Suck wind Erdogan! For months and months, the Mad Takfiri Tyrant of Turkey has told the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU/Hashd al-Shaabi) to stay away from Mosul and its surrounding regions, declaring to them as “sultan” of the imaginary “New Ottoman Empire” that they aren’t welcome in Mosul and that once it is liberated, it will only remain open to Sunni Arabs, Sunni Turkmen and Sunni Kurds. But with dozens of Assyrian Christian villages liberated by the Shi’a-led Hashd al-Shaabi already, the question has to be asked: How’s that working out for you Recep The Receptacle?! And now, today, since the operation that the PMU has been laying the groundwork for since the launch of the Mosul operation has officially begun, i.e. the fight for Tal Afar, ISIS’s central supply route to Syria, let us ask two follow-up questions: How you like THEM apples Recep The Reprehensible? You mad that your precious Daeshis are getting smashed by roaring, ferocious Iraqi lions? Continue reading Defying The US ZOG and Takfiri Tyrant Erdogan, Hashd al-Shaabi Begins Fight For Tal Afar

Deviant, Disturbing Innovations Of Tatbir and Zanjeer Are Promoted By Zionist Media To Spread Shiaphobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

To all my non-Shi’a Muslim brothers and sisters as well as my non-Muslim comrades: DO NOT FOLLOW THE SHAMEFUL ZIONIST MEDIA AND THE EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA (here’s looking at your despicable “reportage” RT and Sputnik) ABOUT WHAT SHI’A MUSLIMS DO ON ASHOURA. The bloody pictures that are being promoted across the spectrum of extremist Shi’a disgustingly self-flagellating and cutting their children DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT represent Islam in any way, shape or form, whether the Shi’a school of thought or otherwise. These barbaric practices, known as Tatbir and Zanjeer, are alien to Islam and have been forbidden by just about major Shi’a authority on the planet, including (but not limited to) Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari and others.

The Quintessential Ashoura Anthem Is Here: “Blood Of The Lion”, Second Single Off “Eternally Husseini”

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Salutations brothers and sisters! On this most revolutionary day, this most magnificent occasion, this 1,336th Ashoura when blood triumphed over the sword–to borrow the expression of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah–and Imam Hussein (A.S.) as well as his partisans achieved martyrdom at the hands of the vile Yazid (L.A.) on the hallowed ground of Karbala, I present to y’all my soul on wax; my beating, bleeding heart in lyrical form; an ode to Abou Abdallah (A.S.) to end all odes: “Blood Of The Lion”, the second single off my upcoming album “Eternally Husseini”, produced entirely by my extra-exceptionally gifted dear brother Iron Galaxy and filled with the illustrious artwork of Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza. This song–which is more like a Hip-Hop Nasheed than a traditional grouping of bars and hooks–doesn’t merely encapsulate the pain of the 10th of Muharram and apply that agony to the difficulties we are warding off today as an Ummah generally and as Shi’at al-Hussein specifically, it bangs like Hizbullah rocketry crashing down on occupied Haifa and making the settlers run for their miserable lives!

RIP Iraqi Moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi: Nubl And Al-Zahra Will Never Forget Your Heroic Sacrifice

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is the story of martyred Iraqi moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi of Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba, may he rest in power and in dignity and be appreciated by the Angels (A.S.) until the end of time. He was martyred in Syria on February 2nd, 2015 and it is a story that has never been told before up until now. The reason for writing it at this very moment in time is rather simplistic: We are in the midst of the first 10 days of the Muharram, that painful time when we relive the suffering of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, as well as reflect on how the sacrifices made on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.) affect us all today when thrown against the backdrop of the current geopolitical landscape. So what better time to recount the life of a Shahid as Husseini as Hussnayn al-Saadi than this one?! Born in Kufa and raised in Karbala, Hussnayn would begin his life as a moujahid at the tender age of 18 when the American-Zionist aggression was launched against Iraq. He joined the ranks of the Mahdi Army before heading towards Asa’ib Ahlul Haq and was known for his fiery demeanor, love of Palestine and passion for the Holy Qur’an, attributes which he put to good use on the battlefield, hyping up his fellow fighters in the confrontation against the invaders. Hussnayn would partake in liberating Basra from US-British occupation as well as several key battles in and around Baghdad.

Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Spirit Lives In Yemen: Hundreds Of Thousands Slam Saudi Funeral Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

The Yemeni people make extraordinary look ordinary and otherworldly look worldly. They really are that astonishing and truly that brave. To see them out on the blocks of the Yemeni capital in their hundreds of thousands to slam Al-Saud’s massacre of at least 458 innocents at a funeral on those very same Sanaa streets just 24 hours earlier, is not only a reminder of how fantastically defiant they are, nor merely how immeasurably resilient, but how intrinsically Husseini first and foremost. The US-‘Israeli’ Empire is the Yazid (L.A.) of our time and every Yazid needs his Shimr (L.A.), i.e. the mindless, bloodthirsty, dirt-ridden killer who carries out his orders against the Moustazafeen. Al-Saud is certainly the Shimr of this age, inflicting death and destruction wherever Washington and Tel Aviv send it to hurt those descendants of Imam Hussein (A.S.) who carry on his righteous Muhammadi legacy to preserve their homeland, their culture and their religion. And make no mistake, this is not Jonathan Azaziah’s opinion but the view of the Yemeni people themselves indeed. Continue reading Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Spirit Lives In Yemen: Hundreds Of Thousands Slam Saudi Funeral Massacre

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Is The Perfect Embodiment Of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Essence

by Jonathan Azaziah

This smile? This smile is worth more than every element and currency on Earth amalgamated. In fact, this smile is of such a transcendent value that when it is flashed, all of the gold, silver, platinum and gemstones in the whole of the planet are melted into heaps of molten scrap and rendered to the nothingness, for they simply cannot compare. This fist? This fist contains more might than all of the weapons of all of the tyrants in all of our region; more might than the cancerous tumor that putrefied Al-Quds and claims to have Earth’s 4th most powerful army; more might than the 1,000-base empire that claims the world needs its “exceptionalism” despite the fact that the only “exceptional” thing it has brought the world is exceptional amounts of suffering and ruin. This fist and this smile are everything. And Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, is, indeed, everything. For he is the perfect embodiment of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) essence.
