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.

The Strength and Steadfastness of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, Who Lost 6 Of His Sons, Are Otherworldly

by Jonathan Azaziah

Nigeria’s Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky has now been unjustly imprisoned for 32 months. I want you to take a long, hard look at this photo and even if tears stream down your face, don’t you dare even GLANCE away. Let it sink in. Let it hurt. Pictured here are the Sheikh and his six sons. While the Sheikh remains illegally caged by Muhammadu Buhari, the tyrannical tool of ‘Israel’, America and Saudi Arabia, the boys… ALL… of the boys… are no longer (physically) with us. Three of them, Ahmad (22), Hameed (20) and Mahmoud (18), were slaughtered by the Nigerian Army during an Al-Quds Day rally on July 26th, 2014. The other three, Hammad (17), Ali (15) and Humaid (13), were murdered in the Zaria Massacre which lasted from December 12th to December 14th, 2015 and which concluded with the criminal transportation of Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat to the brutal Nigerian regime’s dungeons. That the Khomeini of Africa has the strength to even wake up in the morning after watching 6 of his 9 seeds have their lives violently snuffed out, is the apex of remarkable; the pinnacle of unimaginable; and the apogee of surreal. Just… Surreal. It is a testament to his sainthood, his resolve and his revolutionary character. This is a man who will fight the oppression of Zion and its tools no matter what they do to him… No matter what they ***TAKE*** from him, like he’s fused with the essences of Prophet Ayyoub (A.S.) and Imam Hussein (A.S.) at once.

Like Obama Before Him, Trump Is Now Bathing In The Blood Of The Zakzaky Family

by Jonathan Azaziah

Obama was smooth. A soothsayer on steroids. The sonnets of demagoguery that he spewed had large swathes of “the left” — including the so-called “radical” left — in an epizootic stupor. I say epizootic because Barack, or better still, BARUCH had liberals and their allies running around like animals with a brain malfunction. Well, a specific animal actually: The lemming. And off the cliff “the left” has gone and continues to go for Obama. Thankfully however, in the waning years of this deceiver’s reign as World Zionism’s Goy Golem, the voices of the underground began to make it to the surface and expose both the Obama-led and Obama-backed crimes. The devastation of Libya. The destabilization of Syria. The unleashing of (Mossad)Daesh on Iraq. The ‘Israeli’ massacres in Gaza. Saudi Arabia’s genocide in Yemen. The push to overthrow Bolivarianism across Latin America. The spying. The deportations. The psychotic militarization of the blue bacon (police). The crackdown on journalists and whistleblowers. But there is still one crime that never really made it out in the open although its barbarity is immense, multi-pronged and ongoing: The eliminationist scheme against Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and his Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN).

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.

Now 930 Days After The Zaria Massacre and Sheikh Zakzaky’s Illegal Imprisonment, Why Is The Silence Of “The Ummah” Still So Deafening?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to everyone but most of all to our steadfast and unbreakable Nigerian brethren who to this very moment continue to fight for the freedom of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky. It has now been 930 days–read that again and after you shake your head in disgust, read it one more time–since the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and perhaps the greatest Islamic revolutionary to grace the African continent in history was locked up by the utterly atrocious, completely servile, downright pathetic regime clinging to power in Abuja. 930 days. The Sheikh’s imprisonment immediately followed the unspeakable Zaria Massacre which lasted 72 hours. December 12th to December 14th. Almost 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a slaughtered, countless others disappeared and on top of Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat being throw into a dungeon, hundreds of IMN activists were tossed in with them. Their fates remain unknown. Since being unjustly put behind bars, the Sheikh has lost vision in one eye, had a stroke–as confirmed by his iron-souled daughter Suhaila–and has been denied proper medical care by the brutal, collaborationist, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed tyrant Muhammadu Buhari. Sure as hell seems to fit all the criteria that “The Ummah” needs to make some noise, right?

In Defiance of Buhari, the US and ‘Israel’, Zakzaky’s Partisans Hold Al-Quds Day Rallies In Over 20 Nigerian Cities

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak and Striking Star Salute to the Nigerian people… Who really are the best people. Simply the best. In defiance of the murderous and despotic Buhari regime as well as its ‘Israeli’, American and Saudi controllers, Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s partisans are marching EN MASSE in over 20 Nigerian cities and towns for International Al-Quds Day. “Death to Israel!” is being chanted. Palestinian and Hizbullah flags are flying. Banners showing Zakzaky, Africa’s most important and inspiring revolutionary voice, alongside Imams Khomeini (R.A.) and Khamenei are being carried. And true, principled, unwavering solidarity with the oppressed nation of Palestine and its occupied holy city of Al-Quds is on full, militant display. The Nigerian army, which massacred dozens of Nigerian Shi’a revolutionaries on Al-Quds Day in 2014 and over 1,000 others in the Zaria Massacre of December 2015, attempted to disrupt the processions in Kaduna State but failed as the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) refused to take the bait, avoided the storm of tear gas and kept marching. That Zakzaky’s acolytes and their closest allies, among them Sunnis and Christians, refuse to abandon Palestine despite all the suffering they’ve endured and all their martyrs, is a telltale sign that these are truly the people of Mouqawamah.

Western “Muslims” Screech Over Trump’s “Refugee Ban” But Still Say ZERO About Nigeria’s Sheikh Zakzaky 14 Months Into His Illegal Jailing

by Jonathan Azaziah

What a miserable world of hypocrites and cowards we live in, huh? It’s now been 14 months and 430 days to be exact that Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Africa’s torchbearer of the Palestinian cause and the foremost preacher of Islam on this lil’ thing we call Earth, has been wrongfully imprisoned by the corrupt and murderous regime of Muhammadu Buhari. Another statistic: It’s now been 74 days since the Nigerian Federal High Court in Abuja, the most important legal body in the nation’s capital, ruled that Sheikh Zakzaky MUST be released immediately. Do the math. The Sheikh’s release–and do note that he and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat NEVER, NEVER, NEVER should have been imprisoned to start with–is now 29 days overdue.

Your 45 Days Are Up Buhari! Obey The Nigerian Federal High Court’s Order And Free Sheikh Zakzaky Now!

by Jonathan Azaziah

It was right around this time 45 days ago when Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Nigerian Federal High Court in Abuja ruled that Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat were unjustly imprisoned and should be released IMMEDIATELY with housing and compensation for their wrongful lock-up to be subsequently provided by the Nigerian state. During this tumultuous and tense 45-day period, there was an attempt on Zakzaky’s life on December 10th and the Sheikh has continued to be tortured, denied proper medical care and deprived of just about every basic human right imaginable. As the seconds tick off the clock in this zero hour, the father of Shi’a Islam in Nigeria and Africa’s most important Anti-Zionist, Anti-Imperialist personality remains behind bars. The Saudi-controlled stooge Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, has already inexplicably rejected the court order on baseless grounds and has also infamously banned Shi’a Islam. So should this be any indication of how the Buhari regime itself is going to behave, Zakzaky’s hideously prejudiced prison stint may not be over just yet. And after the Saudi tyrants’ execution of Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr last year and the Saudi-backed Bahraini regime’s murder of three Shi’a protesters yesterday, it should be lucid to all that with Saudi proxies in Abuja at the helm, Zakzaky’s life is in tremendous danger, more so than ever before.

“Silence On The Sheikh” Drops Just One Week From Today!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Only seven days away from the one-year anniversary of the Zaria Massacre and the illegal, unjustifiable imprisonment of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky of Nigeria. “Silence On The Sheikh”, the song that I, Iron Galaxy, Yusuf Abdul-Mateen Trombly, Rafiqi Green and Khanverse KV put together, is, in the simplest terms I can muster, SOMETHING NOT OF THIS WORLD. If I say anything more than that, it will take away from its prestige. For real. Just wait ’till y’all hear it. And when you do, make sure to spread it far and wide and let it be a weapon we use to pressure the US-Zionist-Saudi-backed Buhari regime into releasing Sheikh Zakzaky, his wife Sayyeda Zeenat and the rest of the IMN (Islamic Movement of Nigeria) political prisoners IMMEDIATELY. In the mean time, change your profile picture to this beautiful poster to raise awareness about the plight of the Sheikh and Nigeria’s Shi’a as well as to heighten anticipation for “Silence On The Sheikh”–the final single off “Eternally Husseini” and an anthem of anthems! Resident genius graphic artist extraordinaire Mohammad Hamza on the gorgeous artwork if you ain’t know. It was the highest of high honors working with all you gentlemen on this special track and in the name of this special cause, i.e. Islamic unity. I’m humbled beyond words by your brotherhood, commitment, bravery and artistic/musical/lyrical brilliance. And of course, I cannot wait to share our masterpiece with the world. #FreeZakzaky #LongLiveZakzaky #SilenceOnTheSheikh #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon

FINALLY! Nigeria’s Federal High Court Rules That Sheikh Zakzaky Be Released Immediately!

by Jonathan Azaziah

The oppressors cannot keep what is just and what is right silenced forever! In a shocking turn of events, the Abuja division of Nigeria’s Federal High Court has ordered that modern-day Shi’a Muslim saint Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat be released from their prison cells IMMEDIATELY. The legal body also ruled that the Sheikh and his wife had their “rights to liberty breached”, that they were held “against their desires” in “unlawful custody”, that the Buhari regime has 45 days to provide Zakzaky and his better half with new accommodations because the brutal Nigerian army had destroyed their home in Zaria, and that the Nigerian security services would pay nearly $160,000.00 in compensation for the repression that the Sheikh endured. The glaring question of course is: WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS INTERVENTION FROM THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT in the days directly after the Zaria Massacre last December? And another: WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS INTERVENTION FROM THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT over these past 11 months as Sheikh Zakzaky was continuously tortured and denied proper medical care? Outrage aside however, this is an incredible development that should be wholeheartedly embraced. Continue reading FINALLY! Nigeria’s Federal High Court Rules That Sheikh Zakzaky Be Released Immediately!
