Assalamu Alaykum

Congratulations on your release from unlawful detention! With resistance and patience, you managed to pass six years of highly terrible conditions.

This happy event, coinciding with the anniversary of the great event of Ghadir, the Eid of Imamate and Wilayah, added to the joy of us and the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).

I deem it necessary to offer you my most sincere greetings from the bottom of my heart for your patience, perseverance and endurance because you sustained pain and hardships with all your strength; furthermore, you sacrificed your six beloved children for Islam and the Quran.

During these six years, prominent scholars and members of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly from different countries did whatever possible to let the world know about the oppression of the Nigerian Shiites and for your release.

Now, on behalf of myself and the honorable members of the council, I appreciate all those who worked for your release, especially scholars of different religions and denominations, lawyers, human rights organizations and those media active in this field.

Besides, the faithful women and devoted men who risked their lives and positions during all these years and called for your freedom with their continued public participation, and even being martyred in this way, deserve a lot of appreciation and gratefulness.

To thank God for your freedom, I prostrate before God Almighty, and once again congratulating the Muslim Ummah and the people of Nigeria, I pray to Heaven for an honorable long life for you and your esteemed spouse.

I hope that your life will be a good model for everyone in the communication of the truth and defence of the sanctity of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Your Excellency, Hojat al-Islam Hajj Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky

Assalamu Alaykum

The news of your release and that of your honorable wife from prison, increased our joy and that of all free Muslims on the day of Eid Ghadir.

Your unlawful detention began in the days of grief and sorrow of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in the month of Safar, and ended in the days of joy of Prophet’s family, and this is an inspiring coincidence for us.

During these six years, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has made many legal, political, propagational, media and human rights efforts to defend you and the oppressed Nigerian Shiites. Because you have been “the symbol of peace, abiding law, and law”, the “messenger of the peaceful coexistence of the followers of religions” and the “defender of human rights and freedoms”.

Now, on behalf of the members of the Assembly around the world, I consider it necessary to express my gratitude to: the human rights activists and organizations that defended you, the team of lawyers, the judges who upheld your innocence in both courts, and above all, the loyal people who have risked their lives and security all these years and demanded your freedom by constantly attending peaceful rallies.

I also need to appreciate the clerics and followers of other religions who supported you alongside the Shiites. This experience is a good model for interaction between religions, and proximity between denominations for freedom, justice and spirituality.

I thank God Almighty, and while congratulating this auspicious event, I ask God for your health and permanence of your success and that of your honorable wife - the mother of six martyrs.

“What is with you must vanish: what is with Allah will endure. And We will certainly bestow, on those who patiently persevere, their reward according to the best of their actions.” (Quran al-Karim, Surah al An-Nahl, Verse: 96)

It should be mentioned that the verdict on the release of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife had already been issued by a court, but the Nigerian government and military refused to comply.

Before the release, the Nigerian government had blocked Zakzaky’s release under various excuses and had not even allowed him access to medical care.

It should be mentioned that Sheikh Hassan Malopa was one of the most famous commentators of the Quran and activists in the field of propagating the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in Kenya.

Originally from the Kenyan island of Mombasa, he worked closely with the Al-Itra Institute in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania’s largest city) and on frequent and regular trips, translating Shiite Tafsir books and other books related to the AhlulBayt (a.s.) for that institution.

Many works of the late Malupa are left and used by the followers of the Shiite religion in Africa.

The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa with a population of about 48 million. According to the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the number of Shiites in Kenya was estimated at 560,000 in 2008.
