A Yemeni Tragedy In 3 Photos: Eid al-Adha Last Year, Saada School Bus Massacre, Eid al-Adha This Year

by Jonathan Azaziah

The heart can only take so much. And you’ll be hard-pressed to stop yours from breaking after reading the following and taking it in. This is Zayd Hussein Tayyeb. He’s an Ansarullahi medic from the holy city of Dahyan in Yemen’s Saada. He’s saved countless lives on the northern Yemeni front, both civilians and fighters. On the left he is pictured with his younger brother Yusuf and his three sons, Ahmed, Ali and Hassan on Eid al-Adha last year. A family united. A family intact. Although the criminal, barbaric war and siege brought upon the Yemeni nation by US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed Saudi Arabia raged all around them… They stayed together and found a way to observe Islam’s second holiest celebration.

Fast forward to the present when tragedy struck. That’s the middle photo. On August 9th, the monstrous, blood-drenched House of Saud bombed a school bus full of children in Dahyan as it passed through a market back to summer camp where Yemeni youths were learning and memorizing the Holy Qur’an. At least 51 children–most of them under 10–were slaughtered and more than 79 others were wounded in the massacre carried out by the Saudi “royals” with US-ZOG-provided armaments. As he had done so many times before, Mr. Tayyeb rushed to the scene minutes after the American-Saudi-Zionist crime to help recover the bodies of martyrs and assist with the injured in hopes of preventing anymore deaths. The carnage was mind-boggling. Little children beheaded, dismembered and lifeless everywhere. Bloody coloring books and backpacks scattered across the streets. Mr. Tayyeb combed through the wreckage looking for survivors and instead… Found his son. Dying inside but persevering nevertheless, he solemnly carried the child’s broken and battered frame to safety. Then he found his other son. Then his brother, who had been chaperoning the picnic the children departed from before the Wahhabi tyrants took their lives. That he had the strength not to shatter after finding his slaughtered kin and then also continue to help other devastated parents… is proof positive that chivalry is far from dead. Indeed, chivalry’s very essence is Yemeni. Continue reading A Yemeni Tragedy In 3 Photos: Eid al-Adha Last Year, Saada School Bus Massacre, Eid al-Adha This Year

We Have Eid al-Adha This Year Thanks To Imam al-Mahdi’s (A.S.) Men In Yemen, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq

by Jonathan Azaziah

Eid al-Adha Mubarak, Eid al-Adha Karim to all and a most unique set of tidings to Yemen’s righteous and resplendent defenders, Ansarullah; Lebanon’s brilliant and brave Men of God, Hizbullah; the unbreakable and unmovable soldiers of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps; the silent but strong and steadfast warriors of Pakistan’s Zaynabyoun; the unsung but undeterred heroes of Afghanistan’s Fatemiyoun; and Iraq’s glorious and gregarious guardians, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU/Hashd al-Shaabi). On this Celebration of Sacrifice, we remember these Pillars of Resistance whose sacrifices are unlike anything we’ve witnessed in our lifetime, our parents’ lifetime, or even our ancestors’ lifetimes going back a good thousand years. Truly unparalleled indeed. Continue reading We Have Eid al-Adha This Year Thanks To Imam al-Mahdi’s (A.S.) Men In Yemen, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq

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.

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

Hajj Qassem Suleimani Puts Trump In His Place, Reminds The Orange Oaf Iran Will Finish Any War America Starts

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to the one, the only, the man, the myth, the legend, the Zionists’ Night Terror, the Takfiris’ Nightmare, the Saudis’ Night Crisis, the Imperialist-Crippler, the Dajjal-Obliterator, the Kehilla-Toppler: Hajj Qassem Suleimani. The Zionist media calls him the “Shadow Commander”. We call the leader of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps the commander of our struggle and the commander of our hearts; the commander of our victories and the commander of our spark. Every youngin’ who learns his name thinks he’s a superhero and can’t wait to follow in his footsteps. Every veteran who is cognizant of his name KNOWS he’s a superhero and longs to fight under his guidance. Hajj Qassem’s savaging of Donald Trump this week was a masterpiece to end all masterpieces and it was simply the latest of beautiful reminders why we love him and would follow him anywhere he says to go defend the Moustazafeen. Indeed, he painted the canvas with just a dab of Mouqawamist paint here… And a splotch of Anti-Parasitic pastel there. Continue reading Hajj Qassem Suleimani Puts Trump In His Place, Reminds The Orange Oaf Iran Will Finish Any War America Starts

Happy 1,253rd Birthday To Imam Reza (A.S.)! Remember His Example As We Confront The Tyrant Of Zionism Today!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Congratulations to the entire Ummah on the 1,253rd birthday of Imam Ali ibn Moussa ar-Reza (A.S.), the 8th Imam for we Jaafari/Twelver Shi’a and a figure beloved by Zaydi Shi’a, numerous Sufi orders and many Sunnis too. The Marvel of Medina, the Tower of Knowledge, the Mountain of Wisdom, the Crown of Cures, the Master of Medicine, the Ruby of Resistance, Imam Reza (A.S.) was a figure as prolific in his dissemination of different aspects of exoteric and esoteric ‘ilm and hikmah as he was in his steadfast stances against tyranny. There are true scholars from the Hawzas in Iraq, Iran and Yemen infinitely more eloquent and exuberantly more capable than me in telling you what the virtues of the Imam (A.S.) are as well as all the intricate details of his magnificent 53 years upon ALLAH’s (SWT) Green Earth. So instead I will just relay a moment that has always resonated with me, especially considering what we are contending with as we speak. Continue reading Happy 1,253rd Birthday To Imam Reza (A.S.)!

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.

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.

Iran’s Jahady Online Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Shari’a, Jihad and Islamophobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

Not too long ago, I was interviewed by the righteous and wonderful brothers at the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Jahady Online about Shari’a, Jihad and Islamophobia. And since we are right smack dab in the middle of Ramadan, I guess there’s no better time to share it! Of course we delve into the political and financial connections of the Zionists to the proliferation of anti-Islam fervor and we also break down the Zionist media’s distortions of some of Islam’s most sacred pillars. In this day and age, there is no greater duty that rests upon the shoulders of Muslims and their allies than defending Islam against the global tidal wave of hasbara launched against it daily by Empire Judaica. I pray that ALLAH (SWT) will find my humble efforts satisfactory and I pray that y’all find it useful. Striking Star Salute to the Iranian nation, its resilient people, its steadfast leadership and its Mouqawamist journalists! Full text of the interview is below.
