A Truth Hidden No Longer: Jewish “Sinful Rogue” Al-Sindi al-Shahik (L.A.) Murdered Imam Moussa al-Kazim (A.S.) 1,220 Years Ago Today

by Jonathan Azaziah

The 25th of Rajab. A day that will whistle forever in woe; that will scream eternally in sorrow; that will ache in our hearts perpetually in affliction, agony and anguish. Yes, upon us today is the 1,220th anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Moussa al-Kazim (A.S.), the 7th Imam of we Jaafari Shi’a; the Original Dean of the Wrongly Accused and Unjustly Imprisoned; the Behind Bars Breaker of Bullies; Jihadi General of the Jailed; the Marshall of the Mewed; the Sentinel of the Shackled; the Reserved Renegade; the Tenderhearted Toppler of Tyrants; the Endurer of Entropy; the Zen Zulfiqar. Indeed, of all his names, from Al-Sabir (the Patient) to Al-Zahir (the Brilliant), Al-Sayyed (the Master) to Al-Wafi (the Faithful), Abdul Saleh (the Most Pious of Worshipers) to Al-Amin (the Trusted One), Qa’id al-Askar (Commander of the Troops) to Dhou al-Nafs al-Zakiyya (the Pure-Souled One) to Bab al-Hawa’ijj (the Gate of Needs), Al-Kazim (the Restrained/the One Who Restrains His Fury) is most fitting for no matter how much oppression he was confronted with, never did he get frazzled; never was he vexed; never did his temper flare. And as Allamah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Tabataba’i (R.A.) notes on page 205 of his “Shi’ite Islam”, Al-Kazim (A.S.) lived under Abbasid despots Mansour (L.A.), Hadi (L.A.), Mahdi (L.A.) and Haroun al-Rashid (L.A.) To somehow find a way to cope with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR dictators in a single lifetime was a feat in and of itself, truly.

If Imam Ali (A.S.) Were Here Physically For His 1,408th Birthday, SJW “Muslims” Would Call Him An “Anti-Semite”

by Jonathan Azaziah

The 13th of Rajab, one of the holiest dates on the Islamic Calendar alongside Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, Mawlid al-Nabi and Ashoura, has passed. Imam Ali (A.S.), the brother of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.); the one who is to Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) like Haroon (A.S.) was to Moussa (A.S.); the Mawla of all Muslims; the Gate to the City Of Knowledge; Asadullah; Al-Haydar; Al-Karrar; the Sole Standard-Bearer of Islam; the one, true Amir al-Mou’mineen is now 1,408 years old. Brightest, sweetest, loveliest and happiest of happy birthdays, o’ Commander of the Faithful (A.S.)!

We could speak of his unique position in all of history as the lone individual – as in, nobody before him and nobody after him – born inside the Kaaba. The crack in the Sublime Black Stone Of Heaven from the burst of light that emitted from his mother Fatima bint Asad (A.S.) upon giving birth to him remains to this day–despite all attempts by the Zio-Imperialist-owned House of Saud to eradicate the history of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) We could speak of his philosophical prowess and unmatched erudition, qualities that gave rise to the Mu╩┐tazilites. At the opposite end of the spectrum, we could speak of his mystifying poetry and intense gnosis – derived directly from knowledge of the Unseen gained from Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) – that runs through the spiritual DNA of every Sufi tariqah on Earth. We could speak of the principles of his government that laid the groundwork for all human-rights-based political systems in the world today. We could speak of his piety, his humbleness, his courage, his eloquence, his ferocity, his love for the oppressed and his thwarting of the oppressors.

But all of this and more can, should and must be read elsewhere in the scholarly works written by far more capable, qualified and exceptional writers than yours truly. Allamah Baqir Shareef al-Qurashi’s “The Life Of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib”, Lucknow Luminary Mufti Ja’far Husayn’s “Biography Of Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib” and Lebanese-Christian George Jordac’s masterpiece, “The Voice Of Human Justice”, come to mind immediately. Instead, since our Mission Statement says that our purpose is to “increase Anti-Parasitic awareness in all peoples of the world, Muslims especially”, that’s what we will be tackling today: The unapologetic, colder-than-ice, dazzling and mighty Anti-Parasitism of Imam Ali (A.S.)

Happy 1,208th Birthday To Imam Jawad (A.S.), The Youngest Infallible, Child Genius, Pious Resistor and Reflection of Jesus Christ (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

This past weekend marked the 1,208th birthday of Imam Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Moussa al-Jawad (A.S.), the 9th Imam in the Jaafari Shi’a tradition and the youngest of the Infallibles (A.S.), with his life only lasting 25 years before he was martyred. Known also as Al-Taqi (the pious), Al-Qani and Al-Radhi (the content and the satisfied, as in content/satisfied solely with ALLAH [SWT]), Al-Zaki (the pure) and Bab al-Mourad (the Gate of Hopes and Dreams), the Imam (A.S.) was, as Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution, said on June 13th, 2011, “the epitome of fighting falsehood. He strove for the rule of ALLAH (SWT). He fought for ALLAH (SWT) and the Holy Quran. He did not fear any power. He was in fact the leader, role model and forerunner of the movement followed by the entire Iranian nation today.” Which makes his life all the more important to study. Moreover, Sayyed Khamenei said in a May 15th, 1981 sermon that Imam al-Taqi (A.S.) “was a sign and symbol of resistance; a great man who fought against the pretentious and hypocritical influence of the Abbasid caliph Ma’moun and he never withdrew an inch. He endured all the arduous conditions, while employing every possible means to fight against falsehood.” It is this exemplification of truth in which we derive our analysis that Imam Jawad (A.S.) was also a reflection of Jesus Christ (A.S.), who is described by ALLAH (SWT) as His Word in the Holy Qur’an (3:45 and 4:171). And what is His Word but truth?

Happy 1,190th Birthday To Imam Ali al-Hadi (A.S.), The Struggler Of Strugglers Whose Defiance Of Despotism Was Boundless

by Jonathan Azaziah

May the peace, blessings and mercy of ALLAH al-Mousawwir (SWT) be upon the Ummah today for the 1,190th birth anniversary of Imam Ali al-Hadi, also known as Imam al-Naqi and Abou al-Hassan III (A.S.), among other titles. The 10th Imam of we Jaafari Shi’a and a figure adored by Muslims the world over for his upright character, generosity, wit, intelligence, insight, humbleness and hatred for oppression, the son of Imam Jawad (A.S.) was a Struggler of Strugglers whose defiance of despots and challenges of tyrants were as boundless as his Qur’anic knowledge and Godwariness.

Abou al-Hassan (A.S.) was like a Dawah machine, arguably bringing more people into the warm embrace of Al-Khalil (SWT) than anyone in Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) outside of the Holy Prophet Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Ali al-Karrar (A.S.) The reason for this was because, unbeknownst to many, Imam al-Naqi (A.S.) was a highly gifted polyglot! He spoke Farsi, Hindi, Russian, Bulgarian and several other Slavic dialects, not to mention several variations of Arabic as well as the ancient language of Aramaic. It was the last of those that gave him a great deal of credibility among Christians, theologians especially, and through his love of Christ (A.S.) and eloquent discourses on the Messiah’s deeds and miracles by ALLAH’s (SWT) leave, he led many to Islam.

Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.): The Spring of Righteous Vengeance Who Brought Honor To Imam Hussein (A.S.) And Crushed His Killers

by Jonathan Azaziah

My uncle Ishaq-Hussein Azaziah (R.A.) told me many a time before ‘Israel’ gunned him down in cold blood that there are two Kufas: The one which betrayed Imam Hussein (A.S.) to the tyrannical terrorist Yazid (L.A.) in 61 A.H. and the one which avenged Imam Hussein (A.S.) in grandiose revolutionary fashion in 66-67 A.H. The latter was led by the hero of heroes and the blade of blades, Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) And the reflection period between Ashoura and Arbaeen wouldn’t be complete without the remembrance of his unbridled and glorious rebellion, which not only saw an uprising against despotism in the name of the one, true, Muhammadi-Husseini Islam but also the pursuit of the psychopathic perpetrators of the massacre on Ashoura.

Imam Ali (A.S.), in Saying 324 of Nahjul Balagha, wrote, “Throw a stone in return from where one comes to you because [there are times that] evil can only be met with evil.” Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) took this to heart and pursued the manglers and stranglers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) to the proverbial ends of the earth. The Commander of Commanders appointed Ibrahim al-Ashtar (R.A.), the son of Imam Ali’s (A.S.) right hand Malik al-Ashtar (R.A.), as his own vicegerent. A most fitting selection.

Ashoura Haqq: Like ‘Israel’ Backs Saudi Arabia’s Genocide In Yemen Today, Zion Helped Yazid (L.A.) Murder Imam Hussein (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

Ashoura, the day when resistance triumphed over tyranny, Tawhid and Haqq prevailed over Shirk and Kufr, purity defeated filth and good overcame evil, is here. You will not find any indulgence of ritualism in this space. We don’t merely see Islam as a religion of Divine Revelation but a religion of revolution and justice that has pitted rebels against devils from the moment that ALLAH (SWT) created Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Ali al-Karrar (A.S.) from the same light aeons on top of aeons ago. And none personified this conceptualization more than Imam Hussein (A.S.); NONE. On this 1,338th commemoration of the tragedy that befell Sayyed al-Shouhada (A.S.) and his Caravan on the sands of Karbala, we will be delving into a matter rarely discussed in Islamic circles, both Shi’a and Sunni: Who were Yazid’s (L.A.) foreign backers?

Palestinian Christians Defy Zionist Schemes And Celebrate Mawlid al-Nabawi With Their Muslim Brethren

by Jonathan Azaziah

Much time is spent rightfully saluting Islamic Liberationist forces in Syria and Iraq for protecting Christians, their sanctities and upholding their traditions like Christmas in the face of the hateful, destructive Wahhabi-Takfiri scourge, but what about the Christians standing with Muslims on our holiest days? Salutes just as massive are in order for them too. Pictured here are the Orthodox Christians of occupied Palestine celebrating Mawlid al-Nabawi, the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), with their Muslim brethren. This gesture of solidarity and communal harmony comes as a transhistorical ode to Abyssinian Christian King Ashama ibn Abjar (also known as Armah), who granted asylum to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) and the persecuted early Muslims, as well as an ode to Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself, who defended Christians, their religious art, their churches and upheld their traditions through a series of unbroken covenants and treaties from Najran to Egypt. Not to mention, it is a defiant act of Muslim-Christian Co-Resistance in the face of the Dajjalic-Jewish-Zionist occupation.
