|Sayyeed Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H)|
By Bukhari M. Bello Jega
"It is our duty to struggle in this fashion, and the result is with Allah" - Imam Ruhullah Musawi Khomeini
Ever since the tragic and unfortunate event of July 25th 2014, where Nigerian Military open fire on innocent, peaceful and armless members of Islamic Movement in Nigeria in Zaria including three children of Sayyed Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H), so many things seem to be happening which call for reflection and action by lovers of humanity. The killing of these innocent Nigerians, who were on peaceful procession in solidarity with the belligerent people of Palestine, will remain the darkest period in the history of Nigeria. The reality before us today, is that, the Nigerian state has been hijack by criminal gangs and bandits who specialises in shedding and mutilating innocent bloods and souls of Nigerians without intervention and seriousness from their government. Another reality is that, they have been absence of government and leadership in the last five (5) years since the son of the fisherman emerged as the President of this beautiful country of beloved people. Therefore, in the absence of government, leadership and the subsequent hijack of machineries and security apparatus of the state by criminal gangs and bandits, unleashing terror and untimely death, one will expect men of reasoning and retired this and that will come out strongly and speak out against the carnage going on in the country, but, silence and cowardice seem to be the defining feature of national heritage. Unfortunately, in the animal farm or jungle mentality we found ourselves, any courageous and independent voice, especially a voice of spirituality, wisdom, foresight, steadfastness, determination and pragmatism of the likes of Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H), is a direct threat to the criminal gangs and bandits holding sward in the country.
In reality, in a theatre of confusion, fear and terror silence of well-meaning and spirited Nigerians is not only a crime, but, a betrayal of their age, status, and the people they claim to be representing. That is why, the daily exposure and calling a spade a spade by the African conscience Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) is not only frightening the criminal gangs and bandits, but, he courageous stand, steadfastness, consistency and alternative narrative to the belligerent and confuse people of Nigeria, who are daily been fed nonsense by the compromised media houses has forsake numerous plans of the enemies of humanity, thus, the need to assassinate him or arrest him has become a dream of the compromised bandits in government. No doubt, Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) has become a torn in the flesh and souls of criminal bandits especially in the theatre of quietness, fear, hopelessness and lack of courage from the well meaning Nigerians who knew better what is happening, but, decided to keep quite to protect their skins. But, the Haq (righteousness) Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) of Allah, the lofty similitude of Allah’s religion refused to keep quiet and accept the hopelessness taking shape in the country. For 36 years the Noor (light of Allah) Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) has been consistence, courageous and determine in raising, calling, creating awareness, enlightenment and reminding the belligerent Muslims about their duties to Allah as his servants and the need to rescue and return back to the fold of Islam as a source of guide and direction.
No doubt Allah’s selected ambassador (Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H)), the personification of Haq, the very essence and symbol of Truth, never submit to the evil powers. Just like Imam Hussain (as), his father Imam Ali (as), brother Imam Hassan (as) and other prophets of yore and the Imams who succeeded him and pious souls Waliyyan Allah never submit to the tyrannical regimes of their times. Noah, Abraham, Moses, Zechariah, and Jesus all suffered at the hands of the tyrants, but never submitted to their demand to abandon their mission of propagating the faith of One Unique God who will raise the dead and hold everyone to account. Please am not equating Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) as a prophet or Imam, but, in our contemporary reality in Nigeria today, i say, this without fear of contradiction or exaggeration, that, we have not had any soul in this country who has shown the way and follow the footsteps of these pious souls mentioned above and suffered imprisonment, intimidation, killing of followers and children like Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) for the sake of Allah, His Messenger (S), members of his households (a) and Islam. If there is please i need a name.
It is interesting to lay this background in order to understand and appreciate why the enemies of humanity are now jittery and confused on the options to take in ending the life of this pious and conscience of humanity in Africa Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H). No doubt, the July 25th 2014 massacre and crime against humanity will continue to remain an ugly historical, tactical and human blunder by the Nigerian military. However, the nature and brutality in which the three pious children of Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) who were arrested alive, but, were killed through torture, mutilating of their bodies and stabbing with knife, shows the general frustration and angers of the criminal gangs and bandits in government with their failure to kill and frustrate or contained their father and Islamic Movement in Nigeria. Never in history have any children of a prominent leader suffered this kind of treatment before their death; but, the Zionist dogs and pigs acting on the instruction of their masters, unleashed terror and untimely death on these innocent, young and creative Nigerians on that faithful day July 25th 2014, for a crime they don’t not understand nor appreciate.
Unfortunately, instead of the aggressors and criminal bandits to cover their faces in shame and disgrace for an unethical conducts and crime against humanity; No, shame and integrity is something alien to the hopeless criminal bandits, as they move to the second phase of dangerous sinister plan and conspiracy to kill or implicate the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) with arms smuggling on his expected return from various conferences and Islamic devotional activities he travelled to overseas. Ever since the beginning of the new Islamic calendar (Muharram), the leader through Allah’s support and foresight, has continue to unravelled various plans and skimming of the Federal Government to assassinate him. A claim they never refute nor did they move to douse any tension or give assurance of handshake with the leadership of the movement; alas what we saw is more reinforcement of military men, weapons and hard wares in Zaria. This give serious credence to the reality of what governance has become in this parts of the country. The questions we are asking killing Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky as planned by the Federal Government; to whose benefit?; Against what crime?; Under what law? I believe the conspirators have no answers to these questions, except general hatred and fear of the mental and spiritual revolution we are seeing and taking places across the Africa continent, pioneered and guided by Sayyeed Ibraheem Elzakzaky. However, since they, cannot give a concrete answers, let us run an analysis and answers to these questions.
The only benefit one can imagine is attempt to quench the flame of Islam and morality in Nigeria, because, ever since the emergence of Allah’s mercy (Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H)) in this part of the world, we have not witness anything except the rise of true Islam and distinct group of energetic young and old men and women who are passionate about Islam and their contribution to its growth and revival after years of distortion and confusion. On this i know, various government have done everything within their powers to strangulate and killed the leader and the Islamic Movement during her infancy, but, yet, it has survival for 36 years, even before the son of fisherman knew his left from right. So, if previous strong, experience, oppressive, and serious dictators have attempted to killed Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) but failed, one wonders what the drunkard, unserious, incompetent and hopeless one gat to offer. Secondly, killing Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky will not benefit anyone except President Goodluck Jonathan ambition to appease his Zionist masters, who are anxious and afraid of the rising profile of Shaikh and return of Muslims and humanity to the fold of Islam. Indeed, true Islam and strong and pious leaders frighten them, more than anything. The biggest fear of Zionist is having a leader especially Islamic one that cannot be influenced with money and opportunity; a leadership system that is not structure but centralised; a leader whose followers obey orders without complains; a leader whose followers are willing to make sacrifice with their blood; a leader who is both a spiritual and political leader with foresight, courage, determination and the eyes, ears and heart to hear beyond the physical world; a leader who is consistence, who never change his words due to fear of death, imprisonment, losing followers or for been alone in a crowd of gullible and fatalistic majority; a leader who is pragmatic and courageous in taking decision no matter how unpopular, but, that is the right thing to do. This kind of leader they hate with passion. And these are characteristics even the enemies of Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) have all testify to. So, they want to kill him, so, that, the society and people can remain without haq who reminder them to bid the good and to forbid the wrong (al-amir bil Ma’roof, wen-nahi anil munkar).
The Zionists and their local agents are afraid of the coming Islamic hurricane and Tsunami which will bring to an end years of pillage, plunder, stealing and destruction of our commonwealth under the watchful and guardianship of their dogs and pigs in various leadership position. No doubt the only people who will benefit from this evil plans is the Zionist instruments and their local agents who had enjoyed and are still planning to benefit from the spoils of war and commonwealth of the long suffering people of this country. Looking at the Nigerian constitution and international laws, it is hard to find anywhere, where pious souls are just killed because of their understanding, ideologies and beliefs. So, we begin to ask, under which legal instrument or international conventions, is the Federal Government allowed to kill personality like Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H)? We cannot find any conventional wisdom or law stipulating such perfidy. After all, serious society include the Zionists states and instruments cherish, adore and award their heroes with golden medals, yet, advise and direct the hopeless characters here to kill their best. You wonder who is fooling who or what is wrong with these hopeless characters in this land of lost opportunity called Nigeria.
In an ideal society, where morality and integrity are the guiding light in building the pillars of such society, personality likes Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) needed to be given special attention, protection and upkeep because of the wonderful work in refining, energising, reawakening the pure moral and spiritual conscience of the society through strengthening and redirecting the minds and souls of people to the right path especially the youth of this country who were left without any support or mentors to modelled upon. Personality like Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) should be given special attention in Airports, security in his home and environs and his health should be of concern to the nation akin to what we see in Niger Republic. But, the Zionist dogs and pigs here, are only after pious people, because, they envisage a society without morality and spirituality. So, any moral and spiritual conscience who call for and remind the people to bid what is good and to forbid the wrong (al-amir bil Ma’roof, wen-nahi anil munkar) is seeing as a aberration that need to be eradicated.
For us, we have every right to raise our voices against the perfidy that the criminal bandits who have hijacked government are planning to do. This is a dangerous mission with devastating consequence to the government and Nigeria as whole. For those with the thinking caps should advise the government to stop this perfidy, or else, the government will not only be history, but, nobody can guarantee the next line of actions that will follow. For a government that has failed to protect the blood, honour and properties of belligerent Nigerians, one, wonder what the benefit of accepting this mission impossible is. I was thinking, the current young and inexperienced members of the Federal Government will learn from history, where, oppressors attempted to crush a popular and spiritual leader like Shaikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky (H) but only resulted in their early demise from power or death like General Sani Abacha and Umau Musa Yar’adua who gave the order to killed and bombard his house. Already Nigeria is in messed as result of incompetent, inaction, conspiracy and wholesome surrender of the sovereignty of the country to foreigners by the present government. One wonder, instead of government cleaning up it mess; the young criminal adventurers are attempting another dangerous and impossible mission. We need to remind them, that, the so called Zionist infrastructures neither have a permanent friend or enemy, but a permanent interest. Remember as you sojourn in this very expensive romance of inconvenience, very soon, you find the hangman waiting for you in the most bizarre form.
We what to remind you and give you glad tidings, that, if you like put all the Nigerian army and security apparatus in Zaria, by the GRACE OF ALLAH nothing will befall our leader; the source of light and security in our lives; because, Allah has clearly reminded us that Islam is the greatest source of power and it can do wonders, that the power of faith is far mightier than that of the superpowers. In the words of the Holy Qur’an, Allah has promised us the result as follows: Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion -- the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace. They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me. If any do reject faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked. So establish regular prayer and give regular charity; and obey the apostle; that ye may receive mercy. Never think thou that the unbelievers are going to frustrate (Allah's plan) on earth: their abode is the Fire, -- and it is indeed an evil refuge!' The Holy Qur'an (24: 55-57).
We equally want to invite your attention to the following sermon of the Commander of the Faithful, Imam Ali (a.s.): "When Allah witnessed their patience in resisting the tortures and hardships, which were inflicted upon them, because of their love for Him and following the path of truth. He opened over them gates of divine assistance in the midst of those difficult bottlenecks of misfortunes. The deprived of yesterday, after that found themselves as rulers and governors. Their glory, fame, prestige, reached to a point, which had never been imagined by them in their best of dreams. (Path of Eloquence (Nahj-ul-Balagha Sermon) No. 234). We know your eyes and brainless brains are block, but, we need to remind you about these important prophesy and promised of Allah and His pious servant (Imam Ali (as)). Finally, we pray for Allah to destroy the enemies of humanity; protect our leader left, right, centre, above and below; increase him in good health and give him victory over his enemies and enemies of humanity illahee. Insha Allah Sayyeed Elzakzaky today, tomorrow and forever; you cannot kill an idea whose time has come. Insha Allah Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) will return to us safely and continue to do what he knows how to do best; reviving the hearts and souls of humanity towards the right path. Laibaka Ya Elzakzaky (H), may we be sacrifice for your live and honour illahee.
