Current Global Islamic Awakening is an Offshoot of the Islamic Revolution in Iran- Prof Yahaya

By D. Nalado- In his discourse on the current global Islamic awakening, the festschrift Professor of Bayero University traced its roots to the revolution of Imam Husain (as) at Karbala. Imam (as) rejected, out rightly, deception and injustice at the expense of his pure blood.

Although majority of Muslims continued to be in deep slumber, those that hold fast to the teachings of Ahlul Bayt, AS (the progeny of the Prophet, SAWA), were awake.

He emphasized the fact that the Islamic revolution in Iran was the success of the blood over the sword. It was brought about as a result of popular mass uprising under revered leadership but not due to an armed struggle. The popular slogan ‘Allahu Akbar’ (Allah is the greatest) which featured in that revolution is also the slogan chanted by the teeming youth in the current awakening. For the avoidance of doubt, the speaker mentioned the lessons to be derived from these current uprisings. An attempt is made below to summarize these important lessons:

• It is now a general belief that Muslims can no longer be crushed or overcome

• Muslims believe that one will never lose anything by holding on fast

to Islam.

• The Muslims generally believe that Islam is God’s favour and

blessings upon them.

• Islam is superior. Governance should be guided by its teaching and

not vice versa.

• Those who are in deep slumber up to now need to become awakened.

• The Slogan ‘Allahu Akbar’ has become the rallying point in all the uprisings.

• Revolution can be achieved without resorting to armed struggle

• The Uprising has spread to Europe and America.

• The current uprising is an offshoot of the revolution in Iran

Professor Yahaya also called on Muslims to unite. He said that Muslims should do away with fear and materialism in order to achieve unity. In his usual remarks after such presentations, Sayyeed Zakzaky (H) expressed appreciation to the speaker for the immense contribution. He re-iterated the fact that in Nigeria Islam is the only way out.

Malam (H) raised the issue of the evil plots by the enemies of Islam in order to derail the progression of the Islamic Movement in this country. He noted that they created Shi’ah without struggle. Now, they have created a faceless Boko Haram. Nothing is known about the group be it address, real and not imaginary personalities involved, a center or any other identity. Everyone could vividly see the treachery associated with the bombings and killings in Kano. The flag of‘Lailaha Illallah’was hoisted at one of the scenes after the attacks in Kano. Who put the flag? Was it the Boko Haram who had all the time to do so after the rather swift bombings? It can’t be. The enemies put the flag in order to blame and ridicule Islam. It is clear that all these mad atrocities are done to ultimately attack the Movement, its leadership and members. Currently there is a battalion of soldiers stationed near the Federal

College of Education (FCE Zaria) in our midst. (Note that the Gyallesu residence of Sayyeed Zakzaky (H) is closely neighboring this place).

All the evil plans to attack the Islamic Movement shall fail. The target is Nigeria for it is seen as a superpower in Africa from which others copy. Malam concluded with the hope that when the current uprising wave comes across Nigeria it would be stabilized with a sound ideology (Islam) and (muttaqiy) Leadership.

Conspirators Against Islam and Muslims are Afraid of Maulid

-Sayyeed Zakzaky (H) made some remarks after the presentations by Prof AbdulFatah and Dr. Mua'zu. On the issue of the importance of unity discussed in the afternoon lecture by Professor Abdulfatah, Malam (H) explained that unity does not mean that one abandons his school of thought to another.

Again it does not mean that all people must have one school. Unity means coming together closer so as to understand each other, then establish a common front to achieve a goal. He noted that despite the fact that Yahoud and Nasara do not have anything in common, they form a common front against Islam and Muslims. Muslims on the other hand, who have everything in common, stay disunited. This is the root cause of our calamities. ‘And (as for) those who disbelieve, some of them are the guardians of others; if you will not do it, there will be in the land persecution and great mischief.’ (Qur’an)

Malam (H) re-emphasized the fact that Islam is one indivisible entity right from Prophet Adam (as) up to the last Messenger. All Muslims hold unto Prophet Muhammad (S) and the Qur’an, which is being safeguarded by Allah (T). Divisions are as a result of selfishness, arrogance and ignorance. Commenting on the significance of Maulud as discussed by Dr Mu’azu, Sayyeed (H) noted that those people who used to cast aspersions on Maulud kept mute these days. They have been silenced, probably, since their shallow defeatist approach could not match the stark realities. One vital aspect of Maulud is that it serves as a platform for unity among Muslims. Thus the enemies of Islam and Muslims are afraid of Maulud. Sayyeed (H) had once asserted and still re-affirms that Islam would be established in this country through Maulud. He therefore challenged the faceless ‘bomb throwers’ to attempt their dastardly actions during Maulud procession which is coming in the next two days. He stressed that no curfew would deter the Movement from observing Maulud.

Malam (H) explained the recent pathetic bombing of 1 div Nigerian Military Command headquarters, Kaduna which were alleged to be carried out by a ‘suicide bomber’. Eye witnesses testified that it was security personnel, who went into the premises, threw explosives and vanished quickly. Immediately, the premises were then sealed and some military wares were whisked away to unknown destination. May be they were transferred to Portharcourt or Yenagoa! If they want to transfer any ware do they have to ridicule Islam and Muslims? Before closing, gifts were presented. After the prayer, people settled for their respective destinations.

Boko Haram attrocity is a conspiracy against Islamic resurgence in Nigeria- Sayyed Zakzaky

By Ibrahim Usman

Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sayyed Ibraheem Yaquoub Zakzaky says, the current wave of attacks in the name of Boko Harma is a delibrate agenda to suppress Islamic resurgence in Nigeria, with special focus on the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

He made the statemen at the opening of Unity Week series of lectures commemorating the Maulud period, at the Baqiyyatullah Husainiyyah, Zaria.

Sayyed Zakzaky said, a highly profile security report has clearly indicated the fear and apprehension of the so-called super powers on the current agitation for Islamic revival in Nigeria, that the country will eventually become Islamic, and in particular Shi’a Islam.

According to him, there is a growing fear by the western world that Nigeria as a regional power, if allowed to embarce Islam as a doctrine, will have multiplier effect on the whole African continent. “This is why they are now trying to destablize the country in the name of Boko Haram, he added.

He also stated that, a Nigerian security official has sent a message informing him that, all the waves of attacks in the name of Boko Haram currently going on, is a smoke screen and diversionary tactics targetting the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

Zakzaky further revealed that, during the post election violence, a special security squad was mobilized and stationed in Federal College of Education Zaria, Gyellesu area where he resides, awaiting orders to emabark on special assignment that was not outlined and fully explained to the squad.

He wondered how a faceless group without a known school structure, physical medium of communication like newspapers, website, physical membership and all attributes of a group can out of the blues start planting bombs unhindered with the aim of establishing Islam. “This is ridiculing Islam and Muslims”, said Zakzaky.

Sayyed Zakzaky said the Kano bombings has clearly let the cat out of the bag, when eye witness accounts indicted security forces in the covert operation. “More so, the Nigeian president has openly declared that his cabinet and security system is filled to brim with Boko Harma membership. What more do you need to read the writing on the wall?”

He expressed concern on how innocent lives are being wasted in cold blood inorder to actualize a sinister motive, and blaming it on Islam and Muslims.

<p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-family: Verdana"><span style="font-size: 12px">As usual, the revered leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, his Eminence Sayyeed Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) made his remarks after the two presenters who discussed about Islam and Muslims in southern Nigeria.</span></span></p>

<p><span style="font-family: Verdana"><span style="font-size: 12px"> This was on the 3rd day (Monday 6/2/2012) of the Islamic Unity Week being conducted at the Baqiyyatullah Husainiyya, Zaria. Sayyeed (H) said that Islam in Nigeria came from Mali through the west. It spread to Hausa and Yoruba lands. Muslims in Yoruba land were called Iemali (to show their affiliation to Mali).  So there existed strong ties between these two communities. This close and cordial relationship still exists. There was not much relationship with the Igbos before the Europeans came.</span></span></p>

<p><span style="font-family: Verdana"><span style="font-size: 12px">The Europeans came for their own interests. They usurped our resources to build their nations. They competed for hegemony between themselves and that explained their dire scramble for Africa. The British colonizers merged Lagos colony with the southern protectorate. What were they protecting? Of course they protected their interests! Later (1914) they amalgamated the North and the merged South into one colonial entity, Nigeria.<br />

They employed indirect rule in the North were there was an established Islamic system of governance. They used the Emirs. Contrary to what was obtained in England, where the Queen was loyal to Christian doctrine, they claimed to enforce secularism in Nigeria. In reality, Nigeria was not and is still not secular. The Nigerian System wasestablished to be against Islam since the colonial days and itcontinues as such to date.<br />

Sayyeed (H), in continuation of his remarks, noted that after the so called independence, the imperial powers had to ensure that a stooge is at the helm of affairs of this country. Up to now they make sure that a Muslim or Christian beast with a human face is in charge as President and vice President or vice versa. Britain is now subservient to America. The latter studied and analyzed the trends in this country. They noted that although they enjoy unlimited access to our oil resources currently, they feared the Islamic Movement under one Mr. Zakzaky. They proposed to divide the country into what they envisage as Muslim North and Christian South.</span></span></p>

<p style="text-align: justify"><br />

<span style="font-family: Verdana"><span style="font-size: 12px"><span style="font-family: Verdana">According to their proposed map, Adamawa, Plateau, Taraba, Kogi and Kwara are all included in the South while Bauchi, Gombe, Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Borno, Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Abuja and Niger will be the North. This proposal is not only highly erroneous but foolish.<br />

In the late 70’s, the population of Lagos was recorded to be 75 % Muslim. Despite enormous resources, Christianity could not make any headway in Lagos and the South west. Islam is closer to the Yoruba culture and simple to comprehend. Christianity, on the other hand, with its doctrine of trinity, is difficult to comprehend.  So Islam has the highest rate of conversion. As a result, Southwest Nigeria is a majority Muslim populated area. The Igbo in the southeast are tired of Christianity. They are looking for a better alternative. With little exposure, it is therefore easy for them to accept Islam. Islam noted Sayyeed (H) is not a legacy by birth. It is a belief. Hausa, for example is not a tribe. It is only a language being used as a medium of communication. Malam cited examples of the hitherto Christian dominated Egypt, North Africa and Syria. They are nowmajority Muslim populations. It has been established that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the World.Sayyeed (H) after careful analysis of the above facts then deducted that both the North and the South consist of Muslim population. If the imperial powers do not want Muslims, then along which line can they divide the country? It is not feasible. They are already late. In Southern Sudan, traditional belief has the highest population followed by Muslims and then Christians. Imperial powers tried to prevent close relationship between Muslims and southern Sudan. They feared that the Muslims would dominate the population. Now they were able to curb out Southern Sudan. However, there are a lot of crises now brewing there.
