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.)
With American-French-British-provided warplanes of the Saudi and Qatari regimes flying over their heads, Ansarullah and its partisans chanted “Labaykah ya Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)!” and “Happy Birthday Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)!” to let the oppressors know that the full military might of history’s largest, most feared and most technologically advanced empire ain’t nothing but rain drops in the Gulf of Aden when compared to the faith of Mighty Mouqawamist Yemen.
Too often, centrally because there is an urgent need to counteract the worldwide Zionist propaganda agenda which malignantly and falsely says our Deen is one of inherent aggressive violence, Islam is spoken of by Muslims merely as a “religion of peace”. But if we are to truly defeat the malicious hasbara against our religion and properly safeguard Ahmad’s (S.A.W.W.) character, we must acknowledge that Islam is ***THE*** religion of justice and Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) wasn’t only a prophet, a messenger, a law-bearer and a mercy to the worlds and all beings (Qur’an 21:107) but also a REVOLUTIONARY. Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) overthrew the oppressive order long run by the Pagan Capitalists of Mecca who kept slaves, fattened their pockets with shady trade deals and kept their feet pressing down on the necks of the weak and the meek. Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) clashed with the devilish Jewish parasites of Khaybar and Banu Qurayza and defeated them after decades of these “chosenites” meddling in Arab affairs, greatly contributing to fitnah in and around Medinah.
And it was Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.)–like his greatest grandfather Nabi Ibrahim (S.A.W.W.) when he triumphed over Nimrud (L.A.)–who became the Idol-Breaker, smashing the false gods used to enforce a predatory system that kept the wealthy, wealthy, and the poor, poor and controlled. Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) was indeed the liberator of Arabia. Thus, it is the essence of Ahmad (S.A.W.W.) and his heroic, Divinely-guided, just actions which form the foundation of revolutionism in Islam. It is this spiritual energy from which Imam Hussein (A.S.) derived his own resistant, defiant identity and destiny; which guided the grandson of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) into the plains of Karbala on Ashoura to save the Deen from a most terrible fate. One cannot be Husseini without being Muhammadi and vice versa. And it is Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), Khair al-Khalq (the Best of Creation), who instilled in us the necessity to fight oppression wherever it is. If Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) was here today in the flesh, it can be said with the utmost certainty that he would see in the Zionist-aligned Saudi regime the very same malevolence and greed that he battled and prevailed over with the Yahoudi-aligned Pagan Arabs of Mecca who turned the Kaaba into a house of shirk.
Apart from the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah, who represents this Muhammadi legacy of revolution, resistance and rejection of oppression better than Ansarullah and the Yemeni people? They are defying and standing victorious over the Pagan Capitalist “Arabs” who illegitimately rule Mecca just as Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) did. They are fighting and exposing the usurping ‘Israeli’ cancer as Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) did with the Jews of his time, i.e. Khaybar and Banu Qurayza. And they are shattering the idols which have broken the backs of Yemenis for decades, in this case Al-Saud’s filthy petrodollars on the one hand and American hegemony on the other, just like Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) did when he entered the Kaaba. In this age, when Takfiri terrorists slit the throats of those celebrating in Iraq as well as Syria, and the atrocious Saudi regime’s demonic Grand Mufti calls the holy occasion “sinful”, commemorating Mawlid al-Nabawi transcends its normal functionality as a holiday and something sanctified into an act of resistance–resistance against the psychopathy of Wahhabism and resistance against Zio-Imperialism. And the Houthiyeen are the very apex of this Muhammadi Mouqawamah.
We can still sing “happy birthday to you!” o’ Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) because heroes such as Ansarullah and the Yemeni people will not be bullied into submission by the ideological offspring of those fought, insulted and persecuted you. Yemen’s Qur’anic Culture and commitment to the Muhammadi way are too sharp to be blunted; too powerful to be pinned down; too fierce to be boxed in; and too incandescent to be blacked out. You, o’ Ahmad (S.A.W.W.), did not falter and that is why we have Islam today and its adherents grow as we speak. The Yemeni Islamic Resistance is not faltering either and because of its steadfastness, courage and love for you Al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.), we shall be without Dönmeh Saudi Arabia and the virus of Wahhabi-Takfirism tomorrow. And when that day of triumph is a solidified reality–and it shall be soon insha’ALLAH–we will celebrate your birth with an extravaganza not seen since ALLAH (SWT) told the Angels (A.S.) it was time to deliver your presence to humanity. O’ Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), this is our solemn promise to you! #MawlidAlNabawi #LongLiveYemen #DeathToWahhabism #LongLiveAnsarullah #LabaykahYaMuhammad
