It was on Saturday 11/06/2022 equivalent to 12th of Zulqa'ada, 1443, the revered leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Yaqoub El-Zakzaky (H) received a delegation of brothers and sisters from Hadejia, Jigawa State, at his residence in Abuja.

Sheikh Zakzaky met with them on the occasion of the birthday anniversary of Imam Ridha (A.S), where he delivered a lengthy speech touching many aspects regarding the Imam (AS), Islamic movement and enemies of Islam, and most importantly some peices of advice to the general brothers and sisters of the movement.
Earlier, the leader conveyed his condolences over the death of the leading brother of Hadeja unit, Malam Dauda, who answered spiritual call couple of weeks ago: "I extend my deepest condolences on the death of Malam Dauda, ​​may his departing soul rest in peace and may Allah bless his family".
Similarly, Sheikh Zakzaky conveyed message of condolences to the family of Mallam Haruna Abbas over the death of two of the wife's children in a recent unprovoked attack by security agents. The leader expressed his sympathy for her as a result of her husband's incarceration for more than eight years now.
While receiving the delegates, leader began his speech by congratulating them on the birth anniversary of Imam Ridha (AS), the 8th infallible Imam of Ahlul Bayt (AS). Sheikh Zakzaky said: "We had observed different Imam Ridha's birth anniversary before the heinous Zaria massacre, it was on the last occasion l was saying that we shall observe the 10 days of the Imam chronologically (from the 1st of Zulqa'adah to the 10th). On the other hand, the enemies (tyrants) remain persistent of their dream of wiping us forever, they committed what they hoped for, which led the heinous Zaria massacre".
Speaking on the catalogue of attacks on the movement after his condolences to the family of Mallam Haruna Abbas, Sheikh Zakzaky said, "These are all nothing but trials on the path of Allah for believers. This is how the path is, trials and tribulations are inevitable. The only relief is resistance. If we keenly realize, the whole life is a trial. If we pass it; then we bag a good reward on the Day of Judgment".
He further said that, "Even if a person's life is prolonged, he will eventually return to the Creator, whether he is killed tyrannically or he dies naturally, death is the end of life".
He butressed His statement with a verse from Chapter, Al-Imran of the devine book: "Whether you are killed or not, you will eventually all return to Allah".
According to the Sheikh, the Messenger of Allah (S) was reported to have said, "Returning to Allah means either returning to His mercy, or to His punishment."
Sheikh Zakzaky therefore said, "To safely return to Allah, is what is desired. If one turns to Allah; a good return, is right".
His eminence reminded brothers and sisters of the will of Commander of the Faithful (AS) Imam Aliyu Ibn Abu Talib to his son: "If you stay away from ulawful means (Haram), you are done, then, worry not that death will befall you or you befell it, either of the two is all right."
Speaking on the Imam, Sheikh Zakzaky explained that, Imam Ridha's era reached a state of confusion to the point where some set of people among the Muslims openly denied the existence of Allah.
In view of this, Sheikh Zakzaky therefore, notified that the communists ideology found in some parts of the globe nowadays was not a new mental conceptualism.
The early ancient men were more than these, because series of treatises proceeded to the extent that they disbelieved the fact that, Allah exists. The leader acknowledged that, with Imam Ridha's immensity of knowledge and interpretation, he solved all the illusions to the fact that they gave up. It was a dialogue many a times, where eventually an understanding reached with the Imam supplanted them.
Speaking on the enemies of Islam and humanity, the leader said, "We are abreast that this world is a trial ground, this is why we stand firm on the path of Allah, because we have a targated aim that we hope Allah the Almighty shall one day make it achieved".
"Some set of people are seeing the impossibility of reforming religious system in this immediate community and at this era. We normally say that if it is not possible, then why the worries? The Sheikh therefore added that if you see a person who is scared and worried that something will be realized, he knows and judges its possibility. Had it been we take up arms in defiance of the law and order, we would have been challenged. But we only preach magnanimously, guiding to the religious rites. So why the panic?", he asked.
Leader of the Islamic movement further said, "The enemies of Islam are afraid of the actualization of this Islamic just system. They do not like its realization no matter how, so what they were after is to impose pressure for the struggle to be stopped. What l always say to this regard is to stay focused towards the ideology of the movement, since it remains menace to them."
Leader of the Islamic movement has therefore reiterated one of his public speeches, addressing the general members of the public, saying, "O! you who have stayed away from us, you have witnessed what is happening to us, we are being killed solely for our religion, therefore stay away for fear of death. You might be killed if you come in or arond. Remain at arm lenghth if you cannot make sacrifices for the sake of religion".
Sheikh Zakzaky finally revealed that it is a secret plan of the authorities right from onset, senseless killing of faithful members of the movement to intimidate those outside not to join us. This was part of their measures to keep the movement from succeeding.
Eventually, his eminence leader of the Islamic movement has extended a strong message to the killers and enemies of religion. He said, "To the oppressive tyrants, do not give up! But we convey a glad tidings to you. we are speaking you in strong faith and conviction that this just system which you fear its establishment will be established. By Allah it will be restored, it is time factor which will sooner or later come. This is a religious time, and that is how Allah wishes it, there is nothing you could do".
