By Sunusi Umar Sadiq

This is the question I asked myself this evening as I passed by BUK Road by Danagundi and saw members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (a.k.a. Shi'ites) leading a demonstration calling for the release of their leader who has been in detention since December last year following the now historic Zaria Massacre.

Nigerian Government Desperate to Kill Sheikh Zakzaky.

It can be recalled that last year in November, there was a bomb attack on the Arbaeen procession from Kano to Zaria which killed over 20 people and injured many, shortly after this incidence a statement was said to have been released by the so-called "Boko Haram" claiming responsibility for the attack, in this statement it was mentioned  "And by the permission of Allah these attacks of ours against Shi’a polytheism will continue until we cleanse the earth of their filth.

OUR DEMAND IS SIMPLE: FREE SHAIKH ZAKZAKY

By Ammar Muhammad Rajab

You can’t prevent people from protest without tackling the grievances of the protest. What prompted the protest? It’s the continued Illegal detention of Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. Do you really want us to halt the peaceful protests? Then release Shaikh Zakzaky unconditionally. To protest on an issue in a democratic system of government looks constitutional.

SHEKAU’s SCAM: A NEW PLOT TO ATTACK SHEIKH ZAKZAKY

Earlier on Sunday 25th September 2016, it was BBC, an indigenous foreign broadcasting outlet that first published the new Shekau’s scam on their website. The BBC report was what drew the attention of many people to the new clip, especially their emphases on the part where Shekau was referring to the Islamic movement in Nigeria and its leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky.

Our attention has been drawn to an editorial by the respected national newspaper Sunday Trust of 25/09/16, wherein a call for the trial of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky was made, instead of his outright release from illegal detention.

Re-Charge El-Zakzaky to court

There is need to correct the wrong impression doing the rounds that there was a clash in Zaria between the Nigerian Army and the Shi’ites, an idea also adopted by the Daily Trust newspaper referring to it as “a bloody clash” in its editorial with the above mentioned heading published on 25th September 2016. There was no such thing as Army-Shiites clash in Zaria on the 12th to 14th December 2015. What actually took place was a coordinated attack on the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and its leadership by the Nigerian Army.

Ghadir does not exclusively belong to Shias: Imam Khamenei

The issue of Ghadir is a clear historical and Islamic issue. The doubts and questions - about the meaning of this sentence - that have come to the minds of some intellectual and philosophical newcomers of today are the same doubts and questions that have been raised since a thousand years ago. And these questions have been answered by great ulama. Therefore, there is not any room for raising doubts about the essence of this issue, this event and what the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) said.

Ghadir is a rejoinder to those who believe in the separation of Islam and politics

What should be said about the content of this historical, holy and meaningful sentence - apart from the appointment of the Commander of the Faithful (a.s.) as the caliph and Imam after the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) which is the common meaning of this sentence - is that there is another important issue which should not be ignored. This issue is the attention of Islam to the issue of government and politics and the significance of this issue from the viewpoint of Islam.

Eid Alghadeer the greatest feast

Ghadir - the greatest feast Today I have perfected your religion and completed my favor upon you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion. (Quran 5:3) When Noah was appointed, he called upon his people and told them: Allah has called upon you to have faith in Him, and to follow His messengers. After me, there shall be a prophet who will bring the complete religion. He is the last prophet that will be sent from Allah.

The IMN's Pen vs the hired Pen of the Nigerian Military

By U. S. Adam

When I saw a piece written by one Onoja, I laughed and laughed again, but at least I now know that the Nigerian Army begin to know the value of a pen, which they lack, but decided to sponsor some stooges to write for them because they only know how to use guns to kill innocent lives. Their braveness begins on armless men and ends on women and children, they can't confront a common gang of Arm robbers, in so many robbery attacks that happened in Nigeria, my fellow citizens only see the arrival of the Army officers after the robbery have taken place.

What is Wahhabism? Does ISIS emerge from Wahhabism?

The Western world, especially western mainstream media, mistakenly considers Wahhabism within the framework of Sunni beliefs. This mistaken belief is propagated through the acts of al-Qaida, the Taliban and now ISIS.

Let us be clear from the very beginning: the greatest threat to Islam originates from Wahhabism, a cancerous phenomenon that has been allowed to fester and propagate for several centuries.

Re-IMN’s provocative #BringBackOurZariaGirls campaign: Who is afraid of #BringBackOurZariaGirls?

By Abdulmumin Giwa 
I was shocked and surprised by the piece attributed to a guest contributor on Naij.Com by the name Gabriel Onoja. Judging by the issue he was writing on, I never expected such a naïve and quick approach to the issue at stake by a right thinking analyst. It was terribly cheap as though it was the Nigerian Army that wrote the piece in defense of its dirty work.

Power Drunkenness and Writing Names in the Black Books of History

By Abdulmumin Giwa
In the quest for being accepted by some global imperialists in Washington, Tel Aviv and Riyadh some power drunken stooges within the Nigerian fold willfully chose to perpetrate the Zaria massacre.

The imperialists who are also sponsors of global terrorism use them in fighting proxy war and killing their people to please the imperialists not minding the consequences.

Remembering Shahid Ukasha Idris Bauchi

By Aliyu Smith Almusawi

The soul of a martyr, according to Ahmadinajad of Iran, awakens the souls of more than a thousand living persons. The martyrdom of my affable brother-in-faith, an elder brother to one of my closest friends, Khalid Idris Doya, was one of the worst moments in my life.

 His martyrdom together with more than a thousand members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, who were massacred by the Nigerian Army in Zaria, was an engineered massacre that exposed the country’s continued subservience to the Zionist agendas.

On the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Jawad(as) khamenei.ir publishes extracts, from speeches made by Ayatollah Khamenei on the noble Imam:Imam Jawad (pbuh) was a manifestation in the struggle against falsehoods, he strove to serve Allah. He was a sign and symbol of resistance; a great man who —during his short life, as he was martyred at the age of 25— 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 mean to fight against falsehood.
