Is Asif Shiraz Really an "ex-member" of Brasstacks ?

Asif Shiraz was an ex-member of Brasstacks. During the recent on-going controversy surrounding Zaid Hamid, Asif also came forward and released a 6 part video on Youtube in which he called Yusuf to be a Kazab and asked Zaid Hamid to clarify the issue.

We wrote about this and published the videos on our own site in the article Asif Shiraz: A dialogue with Brasstacks and zaidhamidexposition regarding Zaid Hamid and Yousuf Kazzab. In this article we praised Asif’s sincerity and truthfulness and wrote:

We appreciate the sincerity with which Asif Shiraz , an ex-Brasstacks member, has come out and laid down the points in the form of dialogue with Brasstacks & zaidhamidexposition and also other Muslim Ummah to explain the matter. Though, as per the advice given by Asif Shiraz, we very much agree on ONE point in this regard, that Yousuf was Kazzab, and Zaid Hamid has to clear himself of it as soon as possible. There is no running away methods available now.

However, a couple of days after the videos were released an embedded on our blog, Asif took the videos offline and left a message on his Youtube profile, which read as follows:

Note: Some of videos have been temporarily removed after assurances from BrassTacks team that they will come out openly in the public about Zaid Hamid’s association with Yousaf Kazzab and explain all the details about it, and either declare him kazzab and his disociation with him, or else bring multiple, credible, renowned scholars who will themselves say that yousaf was not a kazzab.

When that happened we tried searching for the videos on Youtube, to see if someone else downloaded and uploaded the videos from his/her account. Fortunately a user named drbeelz had uploaded the videos from his account. We changed the urls and embedded the videos from drbeelz account.

Asif Shiraz contacted drbeelz and asked him to remove the videos because they are his property and drbeelz is violating his copy rights. drbeelz sent us an email at zaidhamidexposition@gmail.com asking us to guide him on this matter. We asked drbeelz not to take down the videos and inform Asif to get in touch with us.

As a result Asif contacted us and stated that he is not required to contact anyone on this matter, because the videos are his property. We told Asif, that we consider all material on Yusuf Kazab issue to be a property of the Muslim Ummah. We further informed him that he could try taking down the videos by contacting Youtube, and in case the videos are taken down, we will upload them from other accounts – and if need be will upload them from a private server.

Asif Shiraz contacted Youtube and got the videos taken offline. The videos hosted by drbeelz now show a message stating “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Muhammad Asif Shiraz.”

We have not uploaded the videos from multiple accounts, because we ourselves wanted to give Asif time on this issue.

Asif Shiraz: Zaid Hamid Has No Links With Yusuf Kazab – Sep 2008

However, people are continuously sending us emails on the issue. One specific email that we have received highlights a very important point. The sender of the email has shared a link of a discussion on Facebook. The topic of the discussion is “Zaid Hamid links with Yousuf Kazzab” and it was started by a person named Jalal Saima on 26 Sep, 2008.

Jalal Saima asks the following question in the discussion:

Jalal Saima http://www.pakgifts.com/epaknewepakbooks.nsf/EmbedBooksView/1EE5B758E5C5C473882569ED0018B4B0?OpenDocument

This link shows a book which i have gone through recently, this book mentions the name of Mr. Zaid Zaman many times and tries to prove that he had strong links with Yousuf Kazzab.

Further more i happend to find out following article on the net which talks about the same links,

http://www.dictatorshipwatch.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=6156&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0

Can any one validate or nullify these claims. Is Mr. Zaid Zaman is Mr. Zaid Hamid, the description in these articles is true or not …
?
Can any one please answer

thanks

Saima

The first person to respond to the discussion is none other than Asif Shiraz. Asif’s response in being provided below:

Asif Shiraz Assalam o Alaikum,

This is Asif Shiraz, I work for brasstacks. Someone posted a similar question on facebook group, and I replied there. I will just copy and paste my earlier reply.

——
Dear Friends,

I see that some of you are getting confused over that article. To vilify a great person is the readiest means of a small person to achieve greatness.

For all the users out there on the internet, I know you love zaid sahib, but still have been bitten many times by dubious leaders and want to be cautious. Fair enough. There are two solutions to getting this thing clear, one of the heart and one of the mind.

The way of the heart is that of Hz. Abu Bakr Siddique. When Abu Jahl approached him saying that your friend(sm) today has said he went up till the heavens, Abu Bakr replied (without hesitation) that I believe in it. If you have all heard zaid sahib. If you think he can be an imposter these guys are claiming him to be, I can only wonder at your perception and “aqal” 🙂 If this is so, just wait. and watch. When you see Zaid sahib steadfast, and brasstacks, actually walk the distance in the service of this nation, then reconsider your conclusion. We will welcome each and every Pakistani and now and forever, to join us in this noble work.

The other option is logical. Verify what they are saying. How? They have written an article. We can also write one to refute it. That wouldn’t help right? What would help is to seek out people who actually know Zaid Sahib. And ask them about who Zaid sahib is, what his background is.

I for one can claim that I know Zaid sahib for the last 15 years, and I can testify, in witness of Allah(sw) and his Prophet(sm), that all these allegations trying to link Zaid sahib with Kazzab yousaf’s ideology are all false propaganda. Zaid sahib is a staunch muslim, and dearly, dearly loves the Holy Prophet(sm). It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf. Instead of believing in that spin article, go out and actually verify.

This is nothing new. They try to do this with any good person that comes. Even with the Holy Prophet(sm) they tried to label him as “Sahir”. Nothing to worry. “Innal baatila kaana zahooqa”. Chill 🙂

The most interesting part of the response is where Asif states that he knows Zaid Hamid for the last 15 years or since 1993 and can testify with Allah(sw) and his Prophet(sm) as a witness that all these allegations that try to link Zaid Hamid to Yusuf Kazab are all false propaganda. Asif further states that it is blasphemous even to think of linking Zaid Hamid to Kazzab Yusuf.

Interesting isn’t it, because in his videos released this month, Asif Shiraz has himself admitted that Zaid Hamid was linked to Yusuf Kazab. How come Zaid Hamid developed connections with Yusuf Kazab between Sep 2008 to March 2010 – when Kazab is not alive any more. Does this not mean that Asif Shiraz was lying through his teeth in Sep 2008 when he said that Zaid Hamid has no links to Yusuf Kazab. And to top it all he lied with Allah(sw) and his Prophet(sm) as a witness.

Another interesting point of the discussion is the next response after Asif’s message. This is a response posted by someone named Refuting Lies and he has basically pasted an email from Zaid Hamid to the discussion. This part of the conversation is embedded to highlight the spelling of Muhemmed in Zaid Hamid’s email. The response follows:

Refuting Lies “Assalam-0-Alikum”

This is the mail i got from Zaid Hamid:-

Dear Zaid,

aa and dua. Total non-sence and shameless bohtan.

Curse of Allah, angels and momineen be on those liars who claim to be “prophets” after Sayyadna Khatim un Nabiyyeen Muhemmed Rasul Allah (saw). Also cursed and Rajeem are those who follow such liar “prophets” and also cursed are those who accuse innocent Muslims of following such false prophets. There will be no prophet after our beloved Sayyadna, Maulana, Muhemmed Rasul Allah, Rehmat ul lil Aalimeen (saw). May Allah keep us in His serene and blessed noor and Rehma in dunya and Akhira.

May Allah be my witness in both the worlds and forgive our errors, mistakes and sins and have mercy on Ummat e Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw). Indeed Allah is the best of Protector and most merciful on His slaves.

Alhamdolillah, all my life has been spent keeping my self under tests and trials of fire, sword and blood for the sake of this deen and in love of Rasul Allah. My prayers, sacrifices, my life and death remains for Allah and His Prophet (saw). My izzat, life, parents, property, family and even good deeds are sacrificed on Rasul Allah. I am not mad to follow false prophets after Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw).

We will inshallah, will not be distracted and continue our mission of protecting Pakistan against all threats, internal and external.

Wassalam and duago

Zaid Hamid

The eGold and Brasstacks Connection

In his videos Asif Shiraz begins with an introduction of his company eGold, that is trying to sell gold coins and ultimately make them a store of value and tender for monetary transactions in Pakistan. In this regard Asif Shiraz made a Facebook comment which stated:

Asif Shiraz We have decided that is in the best interest of both eGold and BrassTacks to completely separate them from each other. This way, no one will think that zaid hamid is trying to profit from his own ideologies by selling gold coins now. And at the same time,. eGold’s universal appeal will not suffer because of zaid hamid’s yusuf kazzab controversy, his military-ISI support, or the stereo typical image of his ideological baggage.

The comment can be viewed on Facebook here and a snapshot of the comment is embedded below as well:

Asif Shiraz: Separating eGold from Brasstacks

Asif Shiraz: Separating eGold from Brasstacks

What does it mean to separate eGold from Brasstacks ? Were they one and the same thing before ? If not, does it make any sense to separate two organizations that are independent of each other ?

Asif Shiraz further clarifies Zaid Hamid’s association with eGold on his own site in a post titled “How eGold came into being”. The relevant part of the post is embedded below:

23 MARCH 2009 NO COMMENT
Note: (Mar 03, 2010)
The following post was written back in september when I used to volunteer part-time for BrassTacks. Back then, I did not know much details about the Yousaf Kazzab controversy. Since I worked with Zaid Hamid, I believed in what I was told, and also wrote an article about the issue, which is quoted here. I still stand behind that article in that it was written in good faith, and because it is true that Zaid Hamid himself never ever said anything in front of me to suggest that he had any doubts about the finality of the Prophethood of Hz. Muhammad Mustafa (sm). However, I never questioned Zaid Hamid in detail about his beliefs regarding Yusuf Kazzab, and had always believed that he considers him a Kazzab too. Now, however, after these clarifications, I want to make the following points clear:

a) I, Asif Shiraz, consider Yousuf kazzab to be a liar and a kazzab.
b) eGold’s as a company, only had this much association with Zaid Hamid that the idea of its inception was taken from one of this TV programs. Zaid Sahib was never on our board of governors, board of directors, shareholders, officers, employees or contractors, in a formal capacity.

I still have high regard for Zaid Hamid, and believe that he is a very capable and sincere person, and is and has always been a staunch muslim of the Ahl-e-sunnat-wal-jamaat school of thought. His affiliation with Sufi ideology, however, appears to make him accept certain things which may otherwise have been disallowed in Shariah. During my volunteership in BrassTacks, I privately urged him many times to make this issue clear upon the public, because the people love him, and have a right over him to know the truth. Now that he has finally spoken, I disagree with his view regarding Yousaf Kazzab, and find it sad that a person of his stature and wisdom is compromising his sincere mission of the nation’s revival over such a petty issue regarding a man who has long since died. However, I am not a Shariah expert to make a judgement on whether it is incumbent upon Zaid Hamid sahib to declare Yousuf as a Kazzab or not, but I do hope that scholars will look into this matter again, and provide guidance to the general public about the truth of the issue from an objective point of view, and consider the evidences which Zaid Hamid is claiming to possess about Yousaf’s so called innocence.

I would advise everyone to focus more on ideology, rather than personalities, and to move ahead with creating an interest-free, gold-backed economic system in Pakistan, and we welcome everyone, including Zaid Hamid, Nadeem farooq paracha, and Maulana Jalapuri to join our efforts in this direction.

In the highlighted part of the post, Asif Shiraz is basically asking the religious scholars to consider Zaid Hamid’s evidences that Zaid Hamid is providing in favor of his claim about Yusuf Kazab’s innocence.

Our readers would certainly be enlightened to see these evidences, but what exactly are these evidences ? Zaid Hamid’s 58 mins leaked video ? or are we seriously missing something ?

Update 2:

Comments from Asif Shiraz:

My statement was: “all these allegations trying to link Zaid sahib with Kazzab yousaf’s ideology are all false propaganda”. This was because I did not beleive zaid follows yousaf’s “ideology” anymore. I did not say “linking to yousaf”, I had said “linking to yousaf’s ideology”.

I swore to this statement, and I still stand by it, because I was a witness to zaid leaving yousuf in his last days, and once you do tauba, you get a clean slate. I always believed brasstacks was entirely a patriotic endeavour by Zaid, and he has completely left yousaf. That is why I wrote that, and that is why I swore to it, because back then, it was what I believed to be the truth.

I still do not believe brasstacks is anything about promoting yousuaf’s ideology. The only reason zaid is not calling yousaf a kazzab is for his personal reasons and past associations, and some tassawuf related misconceptions. Still, I left brasstacks because i had differences over this issue, and to play my part in trying to resolve those differences was why I made the video. BrassTacks promised to issue a statement to clarify and settle the issue so I took them down. The gold project was inspired by brasstacks, was originally intended to run in collaboration, but we learned that brasstacks wishes to continue its focus on political, strategic and defence issues, and not get into financial sector directly yet. So we separated.

Lastly, zaid hamid expositions guys: You suck.

Also, what the exposition guys fail to mention is that even back then of my message of 2008 which they have dug up, I have used the words “kazzab yousaf’s ideology”.

Update 3:

A person named Abdul Muez has added the following comment to this article. His comment is no 50 on this post.

The original wikipedia article about Yusuf Kazzab was started by someone named Asif Shiraz. This article was basically the same thing that was written by ZH in an online post.

I noticed this fact when I was adding “citation needed” tags to this article.

That wikipedia article got deleted a few days ago!

80 comments on “Is Asif Shiraz Really an "ex-member" of Brasstacks ?

  1. Binte Ali says:

    Asalaamu ‘alaikum ,

    Seems as though Mr Shiraz was involved in some damage control with regards to their, ZH’s new venture business of e-gold. One wonders if one can trust such deceptive people who can lie so easily, by taking the name of Allah and His rasool(s.a.w)in ANYTHING they have to say or promote. Shame of them !!!

  2. Rizwan Shaikh says:

    i think the “Kazzab” is a very little word for all of you.

    Funded “Kazzab”

  3. Fasi Uddin says:

    Asalam-o-alekum,

    It looks like he has been under threat by ZH and his Bosses, that is why he has changed his stance on him.

    If anybody has watched “The Arrivals”, videos, he can easily find out how Michael Jackson was defamed by the Powerful media mafia after he parted ways with them, which resulted in his death, which is still a mystery.

    ZH belongs to that group, that is why he was asking US & UK consulates to save his boss, Yousuf Kazzab.

    God save pakistan, as we are surrounded by these people and they have penetrated in our society.

    Wassalam

  4. Anees says:

    If you guys have watched Asif Shiraz video, he did mention in that he wrote an essay defending Zaid Hamid 2 years ago which can be found using google, he also mentioned in his video that brasstacks website was registered under his name, he also mentioned that he separated with Zaid Hamid over eGold issue. The last article you have posted dated Mar 3 2010, just about the same time Asif made his video is in agreement as in his last letter Asif Shiraz seems to have change his view on Yusuf Ali and think he was Yusuf Kazzab. It seems to me that this guy was his staunch supported but just like many of Zaid Hamid supported have left him due to the exposition of this website.

  5. Anees says:

    Ok never mind after reading his last article clearly you guys are right ignore my previous post or better delete it.

    JHOOT KAY PAIR NAHI HOTAY … ye tu JHOTON KA TOLA HAI TOLA

  8. Asma I. says:

    You should read these three articles written about Zaid Hamid over the past two years: http://criticalppp.org/lubp/archives/7657

    They are by Fasi Zaka, and these are the first critiques that were done on Zaid Hamid for his constant lying (though all Fasi’s critiques are based on logic and fact, he never went into the Islamic elements of things)

    I was at a Islamic University Seminar where I studied where there was a debate about Pakistan’s future (Fasi Zaka and another were there presenting their views), and one of the girls asked Fasi Zaka about Zaid’s arguments to make a gold economy and Fasi laughed, saying that he would never believe a man who was trying to personally sell Gold profitably while also creating a market for it through false preaching.

    Against Fasi Zaka first Zaid Hamid sent a violent email to everyone on his mailing list in those days that was on yahoo, before they were on Facebook, and Asif Shiraz also wrote an article attacking him.

    I was also present at the Islamabad convention center when they beat up a student, went with friends who were fans of Zaid Hamid. Stupidly, we have our phone numbers, they would message us to write letters to the editors, and now they have sent us the following sms:

    dear family members our opponents r forcing tahir khan to end brasstracks n pressurising him to air n0thng related to ‘syed zaid zaman hamid in future. 0333-2196777ths is tahir a khan’s number flood his inbox with msgs in support of zaid hamid n safe the mission of takmeel e Pakistan n that this mission can not be stopped play ur role

  10. Binte Ali says:

    Interesting Asma ” Fasi laughed, saying that he would never believe a man who was trying to personally sell Gold profitably while also creating a market for it through false preaching.”

    The concept is not wrong but the person behind the concept is who I have an issue with.

    Should one trust a known compulsive liar, a supporter of a blasphemer and his mureeds who, at this very moment, are running around defending the indefensible ?

  11. Asif Shiraz says:

  12. Mujahid Fisabi-Lillah says:

    Asif Shiraz,

    Mr read your statement below again.It is copy pasted below..

    “I for one can claim that I know Zaid sahib for the last 15 years, and I can testify, in witness of Allah(sw) and his Prophet(sm), that all these allegations trying to link Zaid sahib with Kazzab yousaf’s ideology are all false propaganda. Zaid sahib is a staunch muslim, and dearly, dearly loves the Holy Prophet(sm). It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf. Instead of believing in that spin article, go out and actually verify.”

    and you are making a mokery of yourself….You said it is blasphemous to think of linking him to Kazzab Yousaf …

    How confidently u r denfending a KAZZAB and how confident liar you are…!!!!!

    Moreover Zaid Kazzab ideology is similer to Yousaf Kazab in many ways…..girl-boy culture, calling Pakistan a Madina Sani, Music culture, sending love and rohani sms to a girl by Zaid Hamid,he even said Kazzab is big scholar and Sufi in his statement….

  13. Furqan says:

    Asif Shiraz in his videos said, he ‘was’ a long time friend of ZH, he like many others believed in everything that ZH was saying in his lectures. Asif thought that ZH considers yusuf a kazzab, as ZH had developed differences with yusuf kazzab cult before his murder, but since yusuf was dead long time ago Asif never asked ZH about his believes and convictions. Asif had a more professional relationship with brasstacks, web hosting and web development.
    We cannot blame a professional because he provided professional services to a particular person/client.

    It is clear that Asif has now dissassociated himself from ZH personally and professionally both, he also took a bold step to upload videos explaining and hoping as a last ditch effort to make ZH do tauba and openly call yusuf a kazzab.

    Please do not alienate Asif by negative comments from this site. Let us hope and pray more and more people will get to know the reality and correct their own aqeeda and Iman.

    I hope and pray one day even ZH and his die hards come to senses and openly accept their mistake, instead of hiding it, make a public tauba and try to live according to the correct teachings of Deen and Sharia before it is too late. In addition, such people must refrain from any public role in future.

    May Allah Al Mighty guide us all and keep our Iman safe, ameen.

  14. Nadia says:

    @ asif sheraz… is that really U?? i don’t think so.. 🙂

  15. Asif Shiraz says:

    Also, what the exposition guys fail to mention is that even back then of my message of 2008 which they have dug up, I have used the words “kazzab yousaf’s ideology”.

  16. @Asif Shiraz Brother could you explain what this statement means “It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf.”

    Jazak Allah

  17. BIOMAT says:

    Assalam-o-alaikum
    I agree to furqan brother that we shouldnot b hard to asif.
    He has accepted yousuf as kazzab. Give him some breathing space. On the otherhand asif bhai have not done good by offloading his videos. As he has sent many emails like that to many brothers & sisters about Zaid Hamid, so for repenting of his wrong act he should spread his words to all members.
    If he try to hide it, as he wrote himself “Innal baatila kaana zahooqa”, truth will make it way out.. So both side should follow tolerance for those who are coming out to expose this cult in any way… I hope u guys will not think of me as wrong & think upon it.. Even in our lives we unintentionally write or say some wrong words & sentences, which if recorded & shown to us we will be ashamed of ourselves. This is common for human being, human make mistakes but bottom line is that if we accept our mistakes & make efforts to correct it & repent it, this is true JEHAD.. Jaza-k-ALLAH brothers ZHE guys & Asif sheraz.. MAY ALLAH reward you all for your genuine efforts.
    PS: ASIF BHAI I ALSO GOT SIMILAR EMAIL REPLY FROM U BACK IN 2008..
    🙂

  18. Muhammad Naeem says:

    @Fidaiye Rasool SAAW

    Asalam-o-Alaikum dear brother, I think Asif before Zaid’s last video regarding yousuf kazzab, Asif was of the opinion that Zaid has done his touba and he might be his blind follower priviously. So he wrote that. Now what is his current stance that what matters.

    It appears here you guys are wrong (it’s my opinion) and may be I am wrong I missed something.

    And Allah knows the best

    Wasalam

  19. Asif Shiraz says:

    What I meant was linking brasstacks to be a masked form of promoting yusuf’s ideology, because I believed at the time of writing it that this was purely a patriotic mission, and especially because I was a witness that zaid hamid had become taib of and renounced yousaf, I said what I had said. Maybe it was not worded correctly, as it was not a published statement, just a hasty facebook message.

    If you are so discouraged by facebook returning zaid’s group to him that you are scrambling for additional stuff to bring up against him that you decided to put the blame on me whom you know has nothing to do with yousaf.

    [Edited By: Abu Muhammad]
    [Remarks: Keep slangs out of your comments]

  20. Asif Shiraz says:

    @Asma I:

    You said: “Fasi laughed, saying that he would never believe a man who was trying to personally sell Gold profitably while also creating a market for it through false preaching”

    What proof do you have of this that zaid hamid is personally trying to make a profit by selling gold? First we try to spend money out of our own pockets to initiate some work that is long been due and no “fidaye rasool” took it up inspite of the Prophet (sm)’s multiple ahadith against Riba, and then the only people who come to the ground to take up this cause, you lay false accusations on them that they are trying to make a personal profit by falsely preaching an ideology only to raise gold’s price? What rubbish….

    Just look at yourself, and tell me this: Did the prophet(sm) not say that it is enough for a man to be a liar that he narrates everything he hears. Doesn’t that make you liars for saying things about Zaid that are completely untrue.

    First you said he tried to “build his credibility” by telling people legitimate things so he can decieve people later. Till that time saying gold thing was good, because it fit into your argument that he uses legitimate things to build credibility.

    Than later, all of a sudden, you change your argument and say “oh.. but he said false things because fasi zaka doesn’t believe in gold economy at all and its zaid’s way of making profit by raising gold price”.

    You guys are pathetic conspiracy theorists…

    Truth be told, this website should be named “Yousaf kazzab exposition”. To call it zaid hamid exposition is completely misleading, because apart from the solitary fact going against him that he isn’t calling kazzab yousuf a kazzab, there is absolutely not a shred of hard, undeniable empirical evidence pointing to the claim that he is attempting to “spread” yusuf ideology. Give me one concrete evidence where brasstacks was used to spread yousaf’s ideology? especially during the time I was in brasstacks i.e. a few months back. Anyone..?

  21. Salman Zafar says:

    Yes,Asif…..

    do tell….

    ahem lets look again at that statement you BOLDLY AND AUTHORITATIVELY made in 2008….

    “”

    I for one can claim that I know Zaid sahib for the last 15 years, and I can testify, in witness of Allah(sw) and his Prophet(sm), that all these allegations trying to link Zaid sahib with Kazzab yousaf’s ideology are all false propaganda. Zaid sahib is a staunch muslim, and dearly, dearly loves the Holy Prophet(sm). It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf. Instead of believing in that spin article, go out and actually verify.

    “”

    now lets zoom in and take a CLOSE look at the second last sentence….

    “”It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf. “”

    ….ohhh…oh my….what do we have here???

    …so…in that video you posted on youtube recently, where you admitted zaid sahib had a previous link with the kazzab(and according to you, did taubah)..what was that??

    was that not a “link”…that you YOURSELF admitted….after having previously silenced people who were curious and….

    who wanted to know about such links???

    but not only did you do just that..in that one sentance….

    you said that even to think of, let alone inquire….of such things…would itself be blasphemy….hence a major sin?

    u then… according to your own earlier statement and rationale…just committed “blasphemy”…as u directly linked zaid to the kazzab….hahaha

    ab koi aur poochay aur soochay kay yaar zaid ka koi link hai kazzab kay saath…that is very very wrong of them….

    aur tum ab aik video bana do and admit such links…that is fine…that is whistleblowing that is goodd…..

    what kind of morality is this? yeh kaun sa sach aur insaaf ka standard hai???

    this is pure blatant hypocrisy on your part….and YOU KNOW IT

    less than 2 years ago you were doing all sorts of verbal, semantic, and logical gymnastics and taking the Lord Allah SwT (All Mighty and All Knowing is He)….as your witness

    to trick and confuse the people…..so that they thought is nay Qasam ka lee hai…..

    and now can clarify..it was regarding the “ideology” not the links themselves….

    u basically dodged the question and made it seem as if u had fully answered it….

    it is as clear as daylight to everyone now….

    that you deceived those you answered and tried to tell them to not even dare think of such things but to blindly follow zaid

    …by carefully choosing your words…

    to give the impression that he had no links period….you were purposefully decieving the people….

    and if you were not…as you profess…
    why then…did u not come clean??? why did u state a partial truth…and take the Lord Allah SwT as witness to it…?

    so that it appeared…as if the issue had been fully addressed….

    that was a deception on your part…..

    …if u think you can throw dust into the eyes of the people so blatantly and Allah SwT will not reveal and make obvious…. your wiles and cunning deceptions …. then you are sadly mistaken…..

    you master zaid zaman is InshAllah going down the road to shameful defeat, disaster, collapse, disintegration and humiliation….

    Allah SwT has broken the collective spinal cord of brasstacks…..all brasstacks members and affiliated entities and individuals are on the run and are desperately attempting to salvage any shred of credibility that they have left….

    brasstacks and takmeel e pakistan movements are a visible , utter and very shameful flop..

    rather than behaving like a lapdog to the shaitan……..you should ponder over the GROUND REALITIES…of today…..

    there is still time to leave this satanic path and trajectory that you are on

    …zaid bayshak pagal hai….shaitani masti aur junoon may apni akal aur apna deen kho behta hai

    but at least…save yourself!!!!

  22. khurram says:

    Ah,,, this Asif iz indeed a true follower of Zaid Hamid.
    as you can read in his first comment he has used the words “you suck”
    Only a person who has spend some time wid Zaid can say that and act that.
    All his followerz/fanz use offensive language, cuz there leader uses the same language.
    …….
    We too could use offensive language, but we ar not heare to curse.. we are here to make people understand .
    Jazakallah khair

  23. Salman Zafar says:

    Asif Shiraz:

    “It is blasphemous even to think of linking him to Kazzab Yusuf.”

    …this statement on your part is a bold faced lie…lieing through your teeth asif shiraz…..lieng flatly….and openly…..

    links were there and admitted by you…but earlier you yourself lied when u said the above quote….

    it is not blasphemous to think such things…it is good and right to think such thinks….

    because HAQIQAT SAAMNAY ANI CHAHEEYAY….

    the haqiqat….the na pak cheera of zaid hamid you and all your cohorts were trying to hide conceal…..

    meetay meetay jawab dey dey kar….jhoot bol bol kar……

    agar itna blasphemous tha….to phir video khud bana kar upload kewn hee hain????

    agar ab video upload kee hai tum nay to…..

    kewn uss waqt loogon ko chup karwa ray they….they had a valid right to know….

    you trying to silence them using all wiles and tricks that you had…..

    these actions on your part are highly contradictory to say the least….
    shame…shame on you….

  24. Asad Ullah says:

    Salam Asif,

    Kia aap nay dhikha kay kaisay baat ka batangar bun sukta hay. Allah aap kay hall pay reham firmaay. The more I see the more I realise that Shirk aur takaabur say ju bach gaya, wo paak ho gaya. Kitnay achay achay log jaisay aap kay ex-boss from BT yaheen maray ga’ay. Bara da’wa kar diya. ‘Hum hain Media!’ aur something like this he said. Sochain kay kaheen aap nay tu takabur nahi kia. Aap ki itni naik niyati ka ye natija. Aap nay tu soocha tha shayad kay aap ki videos say sara kuch saaf ho ja’ay ga. Please kisi ko es tarha kazzab kahnay say pehlay sooch layna tha. Ye baat sirf app kay li’ay nahi hum sub ka li’ay hay… Aaap sub kay lia duaa.

  25. “Assalam-0-Alikum”

    You See Me Above Defending Zaid Hamid,It Is Dated 2008 While I Still Was A Fan Of Zaid Hamid,Now It Has Become Clear That He Is A Liar Of The Same Kind Of Musaylma,Sajah And Aswad Al Ansi,May Allah Curse This Kafir Zaid Hamid And May Allah Destroy Him As He Destroyed Musaylma,Sajah,Aswad Al Ansi,Qaramti,Mirza Ghulam And His Filthy Master Yusuf Kazzab

    Wa’saalam

  26. Asif Shiraz says:

    @Mujahid Fisabi-Lillah

    You said: “Moreover Zaid Kazzab ideology is similer to Yousaf Kazab in many ways…..girl-boy culture, calling Pakistan a Madina Sani, Music culture, sending love and rohani sms to a girl by Zaid Hamid,he even said Kazzab is big scholar and Sufi in his statement….”

    1. girl-boy culture exists in every one of pakistan’s universities.. they are all following kazzab yousauf?

    2. Calling pakistan madina-e-saani. a) When did kazzab yousaf say this? b) Mumtaz mufti, Qudratullah shahab, countless others have extoled the future role of pakistan long before kazzab yusuf and zaid hamid.

    3. Music culture: It exists already on many TV channels. So Aag TV, and indus TV and even MTV are also following yousaf kazzab because they show music?

    4. Sending love sms: As if you have never smsed girls ever in your life?

    Is this all about bughz-e-muawiyya, or is there some hubbe-e-Ali left also?

  27. Ahsan says:

    NO, i think everything ended up cleanly by Asif. He made his points clear. He testified in the name of Allah and Rasool that Ziad has no connections with yousuf’s IDEOLOGY. There he is right, that ZHE’s bad, they and reader mis-understood, even i misunderstood, but asif shiraz explained it well. I think he is not favoring ZH at all, it is quite clear from his recent comments.

  28. Ahsan says:

    ZHE, “rohani sms to a girl by Zaid Hamid” <– what is this all about?

  29. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Asif Shiraz

    If it was not worded properly by you, then why are you blaming us for it?. Also, is it only your responsibility to know that Zaid Hamid had become taib, while ignoring the rest of the Muslim Ummah? A fair statement that you could have made would have been that he was before related to Yousuf Kazzab but now he has repented over it. If you can’t make this statement, then it was better to remain quiet.

    We never said that you’ve nothing to do with Yousuf. What we pointed out was your defense of Zaid Hamid for his linkages to Yousuf Kazzab. The words that you’ve spoken are too APPARENT and STRAIGHT IN WORDS that anyone reading it will definitely come to the conclusion that the people who are showing concerns are just all doing propaganda.

    I’m sorry to say this, though I don’t want to but don’t you think that you should fix your English and accept that it was a faulty statement to make in such a straight forward way whether in facebook or in email, to free Zaid Hamid for his links to Yousuf Kazzab, instead of criticizing all those who could have been concerned to see this statement. If you see your statements without getting biased you’ll realize that it is NONE OTHER YOUR OWN FAULT TO WRITE SUCH STATEMENTS.

    Anyways, we suggest you to relax. You’ve clarified your point of view but at the same time we reserver the right as well being the part of the Ummah to question you for your words which you spoke which are very contrary to what you explained in the videos.

    If you have nothing to hide, you don’t need to be scared.

  30. Ahsan says:

    ZHE, please donot put bad-marks on your credibility by such filthy acts. You are making an issue of nothing. Asif is correct, he might have done wordy error mistake, it was not an official statment of Asif, above of it he said ‘Yousuf Ideology’ and in next line he missed the word ideology, thats it, this is no point to question him. This is childish behavior.

  31. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Asif Shiraz

    We are not responsible for the comments that other people make regarding Zaid Hamid. We only endorse what we say of Zaid Hamid. Would you mind not to put labels of ‘conspiracy theorists’ on US based on other viewer comments?

    How ironic is it that relay the saying of Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) regarding “it is enough for a man to be a liar that he narrates everything he hears”, while, you yourself now are relaying things regarding us which are not found, not proven and baseless? Have you forgotten the other hadith of buhtan from Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) deliberately so that you can accuse us of “conspiracy theorists”?

    Next time make sure that you’ve re-read your own post before you post, so that your comments don’t look pathetic to others.

  32. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Asif Shiraz

    You’ve missed the point completely in your four points.

    You never judge a follower of Kazzab based on society and culture. You always judge a follower based on his master (Kazzab teachings). Since Kazzab was all about it as was written and it has been proven on many accounts; then with what false justifications your coming here with and trying to defend him using out of context examples? Are you Okay?

    I think it is important for you to have your context correct before you speak out.

  33. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Ahsan

    So why you want to blame us for the ‘word mistakes’ committed by him? Is it his fault or ours? Is it you who is being childish and showing attitude and behavior to blame us for mistakes of his? If you can’t make it balance, then why are you speaking against us? We are open to healthy criticism but criticism should be based on FACTS. The explanation was on the part of Asif Shiraz not us. We certainly made correct analysis and didn’t distort anything.

    He has clarified from his point of view. Let the rest be left to the readers. Is it too difficult to do?

  34. Ahsan says:

    “You never judge a follower of Kazzab based on society and culture. You always judge a follower based on his master (Kazzab teachings). Since Kazzab was all about it as was written and it has been proven on many accounts; then with what false justifications your coming here with and trying to defend him using out of context examples? Are you Okay?”

    No. I think you misunderstood him again Abu Muhammad. If Zaid is involved all those 4 raised questions, does it mean that he is following Yousuf kazzab actually? Why is it so? Because every second person in society is involved and busy doing same things. So every other person is a follower of Kazzab? Why specifically Zaid hamid is proven to be kazzab’s follower if he is doing the same things what every other pakistani is doing?

    This is what Asif said. By the way, you are trying to prove Zaid Hamid yousuf kazzab’s follower that is why you have given those 4 points, and to counter them, asif replied well. Please donot get urself involved in childish debates with no proper understanding of each other’s responses and missing out the point of debate. (Both the parties).

  35. Ahsan says:

    Donot drag me into this, i m trying to reduce gap between you two.

    “We are open to healthy criticism but criticism should be based on FACTS. The explanation was on the part of Asif Shiraz not us. We certainly made correct analysis and didn’t distort anything.”

    If my explanation will be on the part of Abu Muhammad, then you will consider it based on FACTS? 🙂

    You are wrongfully pulling Asif’s legs. He sincerely released his video, and still he is not defending zaid hamid, as i can see, he still demands from Zaid hamid to call yousuf a kazzab and all. What else you want from Asif? See, you are making your intentions doubtful by these things, aik banda khara ho ker zaid hamid ka sathi honay k bawajood zaid hamid ki mukhalifat ker raha hai, woh bhi tum se bardasht nahin, q k tumhain zaid hamid ka mukhalifi nahin, balkay ZHE ka Haami chahiye. <<< This is how people are taking it now. I just have recieved these kind of comments from a few people i know.

  36. Ahsan says:

    ZHE, “rohani sms to a girl by Zaid Hamid” <– what is this all about?

    Would you mind explaining this? I think i have missed this story.

  37. Salman Zafar says:

    Asif shiraz and Ahsan

    DO NOT INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE AND THROW DUST IN OUR EYES…..

    Agar zaid doesnt ascribe to yusuf kazzab ideology… Then what is that 58 minute long eye wash of a video where he defends yusuf kazzab and blames this imaginary group of “fasadi mullahs”

    It is one thing to not condemn kazzab… But to tell 100 lies in a 1 hour video…

    Needlessly insulting the ulema and trying to get youth to hate them?

    Yeh kia hai?? hain????

    Kiya hai yeh phir….

    Tell us… Why did he make that ruvish video then?

    Is kay peechay kiya baat hai

    yani Yusuf kazzab ka difa ussay itna piyara hai

    That he totally disregards respect of Hazoor SAW

    so he is not the ashiq e Rasul SAW he claims to be since true ashiq would behave like this….

    And is not ameen and siddiq as he talks about in his shows as being important qualities for leadership

    He does not care for real truth

    but will lie to hide facts…

    And he does not respect ulema since he will attaxk them

    Before attacking the kazzab so he favors a kazzab to almost all ulema of this country…he will not condemn a kazzab but will ferociously blame ulema and khabrain akhbaar…and lie through his teeth to the youth fan base who he has…..

    Are these actions that are expected from an iqbal ka shaheen???

    Tell me Asif tell me Ahsan ??? Are they???

    No ofcourse not… Who would do these types of actions???

    A power and fame monging dajjal who would rather do gustakhee of Rasul SAW and trample over honesty

    truth. and disrespect ulema..and trick and mislead youth……as opposed to being Adab e Rasul SAW and being honest and respectful of ulema and youth….

    Because of his desire of fame and power ….

    He is a corrupt man…who breaks all limits and boundries…to achieve his mad goals….hang your head in shame for defending him and his lies…both of you zaidhamidists….

  38. Salman Zafar says:

    *since true ashiq would not behave like this…..

  39. Binte Ali says:

    @ Asif,

    You’ve stated “… but I do hope that scholars will look into this matter again, and provide guidance to the general public about the truth of the issue from an objective point of view, and consider the evidences which Zaid Hamid is claiming to possess about Yusuf’s so called innocence.”

    Which could be interpreted to mean, that you don’t feel that the Ulema have taken an objective stand on the issue !

    And that Zaid Hamid’s so called evidence of Yusuf Kazaab’s innocence should be taken into consideration by them!! Please, we’ve all seen the evidence which ZH has provided in his infamous confessional video. Mostly lies!!! If he had such hard core evidence, he wouldn’t be in the state he is in today. All we’ve seen him do is running after his own tail. Only adding lies upon a lies, to wriggling his way out of this issue.

    Secondly, you’ve also stated in your eGold FB post ” We have decided that is in the best interest of both eGold and BrassTacks to completely separate them from each other.”

    Which has more connotations than your later argument presented on your eGold site where you say” eGold’s as a company, only had this much association with Zaid Hamid that the idea of its inception was taken from one of this TV programs.”

    How does one ” completely separate ” from an idea ?

    It is quite clear you speak in your FB post about a separation of two bodies. Two entities that had a relationship !

    You then go on to say on your site that ” Zaid Sahib was never on our board of governors, board of directors, shareholders, officers, employees or contractors, in a formal capacity ”

    This does not mean there isn’t a possibility of an informal relationship. As is the case with PKKH, it seems :

    http://zaidhamidexposition.org/2010/03/29/muhammad-assad-ex-member-pkkh-pkkh-belongs-to-bt-get-that-straight/

    And I believe the purpose of severing this link was not entirely , as stated by you :

    “: .. that brasstacks wishes to continue its focus on political, strategic and defence issues, and not get into financial sector directly yet. So we separated.”

    But instead more towards :

    a) ” This way, no one will think that Zaid hamid is trying to profit from his own ideologies by selling gold coins now.”

    b) ” And at the same time, eGold’s universal appeal will not suffer ”

    So, this is all about saving the credibility of eGold and other ZH projects. It seems all Zaid Hamid “ spiritual “ associate companies have gone into damage control mode . Which is what you all specialize in afterall, PR and Spinning, regurgetating false information to make them perceived to be the truth for an audience who is desparate for change .

    You began by leaking those videos , a strategy to give a perception of disassocation of eGold and a lead for the other ZH associated companies to follow the same strategy to gain some life back into these projects.

    Which is why you all ( Zaid Hamidian’s)insistantly emphasise on the following point : to focus more on the ideology, rather than personalities, and to move on . This was also being said about the Takmeel project .

    Furthermore, your other objective of leaking those videos was to plant the seed and slowly sell the concept, that of Yusuf Kazaab’s relgious ideology . That it being a possibility of mistaken spiritual differences of the Maslaks. Which is the reason behind your statement of the Ulema ” objectivity ” ! Whereby, bringing the possibility at a later date , some acceptance of ZH and his beliefs ( which he has no plans to separate from ) and also not to lose more of your support base.

    It is unbelievable how deep rooted ZH influence has reached within you all. In so much, all of you are unable to detach yourself from him even for the sake of the rasulullah (s.a.w) .

    In all this Allah knows best .

  40. Asif Shiraz says:

    @Abu Muhammad

    I see by your replies that it might be you who owns zaidhamidexposition@gmail address. Nice to meet you then.

    Firstly, things need to be taken in context. I have already stated above that the literal meaning of my statement was wrong, but taken in context, its obvious I didn’t meant that. I never meant to say linking zaid to yousaf was blasphemy, even if the words were that. All I meant was that linking brasstacks ideology to yousaf’s ideology was wrong. I will myself answer to Allah(sw) for saying that because I know what I meant by it.

    Today also, inspite of the fact that I left brasstacks, I still do not buy the claim that brasstacks is covertly trying to re-establish yousaf as a false prophet, or spread his ideology.

    Many people advised me not to “get into this mess” by releasing my video. I did not listen to them, nor do I care of anything now, because I do what I feel is right. And insha Allah will always do that. I felt it right that brasstacks patriotic focus should not be tainted by resurrecting a dead yousaf’s links with zaid as a “maslihat”, which I bought back then. I do not regret because I was not the prime decision maker of how brasstacks chose to respond. Today, I decided to come out because this issue was dividing well-intentioned people on both sides, and the toll of that exceeded the earlier “maslihat”. You did not even know my name. You did not even know I worked for brasstacks. I could have quitely quit and got on with my life. But I did that because I believed telling people the truth is important.

    But the truth alone it must be, irrespective of whether ZHE or ZH like or not. The truth is that Zaid was closely linked to yousaf, by being influenced by yousaf’s twisted interpretations of tassawuf. The truth is that inspite of fighting the court case for yousaf, Zaid had left him even when he was still alive. The truth is that Zaid has not talked to yousaf kazzab’s “real” followers for over 10 years. The truth is that inspite of your claim that you have 100% evidence of zaid’s links with yousaf’s followers, you have not been able to follow up on your personal email to me that you will provide proofs of that. The truth is that apart from deceptively trying to bury away the yousaf issue as a bygone, there is absolutely nothing that can concretely link any activity of brasstacks which can be counted as an attempt to resurrect yousaf kazzab’s ideology. Everything he says, like ghazwa-e-hind, restoration of khilafat ala-minhaj an-nabuwat are all concepts mumtaz mufti, qudrutullah Shahab and many others have been talking about long before yousaf was even born. The truth is that Zaid Hamid is not guilty of any crime at all, except 1: I.e. not calling yousaf kazzab as a kazzab. Other than that, this whole website you have has nothing against him specifically: It is all against yousaf.

    I think I’m a total fool to make enemies in both camps now, brasstacks as well as ZHE 🙂 lol… but that is how it. Hazaar khauf hoe laikin zaban hoe dil kee rafeeq!! I’ll look forward to being declared a kazzab for not calling a person a kazzab who refuses to call a kazzab as a kazzab 🙂

  41. Badar says:

    here is the complete script of Zaid Hamid’s email which u posted under the name of Refuting Lies. I had copied it from internet when Molana Saeed Jalalpuri Sb first wrote his booklet on zaid hamid.

    Update: May 19, 2009
    Few days ago a university fellow of mine Mr. Jahan Zaid received this email which he shared over the university’s mailing group. I’d like to share it with you as well.

    Zaid Hamid’s Mail
    aa and dua.

    First of all Jazak Allah for writing to me directly for the clarification
    and following the Sunnah and Sharia way of resolving confusing issues.
    Though I have responded to allegations and clarified my positions many times
    on Khatm Nubuwwat, I do feel to write to you in some detail. Just for your
    record, I am repeating one brief reply.

    ”Alhamdolillah, all my life has been spent keeping my self under tests and
    trials of fire, sword and blood for the sake of this deen and in love of
    Rasul Allah. My prayers, sacrifices, my life and death remains for Allah and
    His Prophet (saw). My izzat, life, parents, property, family and even good
    deeds are sacrificed on Rasul Allah. I am not mad to follow false prophets
    after Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw).

    Those with noor can see the rehma, baraka and khair from Allah and love of
    Rasul Allah in the life and mission of this humble faqeer. Hasbu nallah
    Naimul Wakeel, Naimul Maula wa naimun Naseer.

    Curse of Allah, angels and momineen be on those liars who claim to be
    “prophets” after Sayyadna Khatim un Nabiyyeen Muhemmed Rasul Allah (saw).
    Also cursed and Rajeem are those who follow such liar “prophets” and also
    cursed are those who accuse innocent Muslims of following such false
    prophets. There will be no prophet after our beloved Sayyadna, Maulana,
    Muhemmed Rasul Allah, Rehmat ul lil Aalimeen (saw)
    . May Allah keep us in His
    serene and blessed noor and Rehma in dunya and Akhira”

    Alhamdolillah, for the last two weeks, we were in Haramain Shareefain and
    also spent about a week in Masjid nabwai shareef presenting my case to Allah
    and His Prophet (saw). I am indeed hurt. Not at the fact that I am being
    opposed. In fact I am pleased at this. I am being opposed by Kafir banking
    systems, Indan assets, hostile secret services, media cartels, government
    proxies, religious and sectarian terrorists, and all those with whom Allah
    and Rasul Allah has declared war against ie: Riba based system of Dajjal.
    They have already tried to silence me by trying to buy me out. When that did
    not work, they started a massive slander and Bohtan campaign from secular
    english to “Islamic” media. Now we at Brasstacks are loosing clients and our
    economic noose is being tightened to put pressure upon us. Now I am waiting
    when they make a physical attack. Hasbunallah !!!

    Alhamdolillah, I am happy and say shukar at this as this humble faqeer has
    hurt and dented the system of Dajjal globally and given hope to this nation
    in these times of trial and tribulations. When I opted and decided to tread
    this path of Jihad and sacrifice at a very young age, I never expected it to
    be bed of roses. It never has been, by Allah.

    But I am hurt because now I am being accused of betraying the very sacred
    soul who remains the centre of gravity of my soul, life, love, death and
    honor — Sayyadna Muhemmed Rasul Allah Sallalla Alaihe wassalam. But then,
    this time in Medina, I received the serenity and peace that inshallah, this
    matter will be handled by Allah himself
    and I need not scoop to lowest of
    levels or counter attack to lower levels to which these accusers have sunk
    themselves. I have clarified my position as above. From the requirements of
    Sharia, Sunnat and law, this should suffice for any Muslim to explain his
    Imaan and beliefs. beyond this, I strongly urge people to come and visit me
    and seek further clarifications. Things are not as they are being projected.
    There is also another side of the story which they are not telling. But it
    cannot be discussed on e-mailing matches and blogs with such characterless
    and unreliable characters because it involves sharia documents, legal
    doctrines, legal proof and Fatwas and statements of top religious scholars,
    council of Islamic ideology and serious papers on abuse of blasphemy laws in
    the country, sectarian wars abusing the law and its complex legal and
    Islamic remedies. you will be shocked once you know the facts on how they
    are lying from their teeth.

    Let me sit face to face with the accusers and By Allah I shall confront
    them on all counts in the presence of anyone who wants to sit and be the
    judge. This is what sharia demands. I am NOT supposed to respond to shadows
    on the wall who are simply accusing without fulfilling sharia requirements.
    Also, it must be decided what should be the punishments for all those who
    have violated every sacred law and accused me of bohtan without
    verifications. Already so much of their lies are exposed. isn’t this enough
    to prove that they are liars??? Again, why we ignore the hadees of Sayyadna
    Rasul Allah that anyone who propagates hearsay without verifying is a liar
    !!! By Allah, they are liars and slandering a Bohtan only. It is a heavy
    burden they carry in dunya and indeed it would be heavier on day of
    judgment. I will NOT make personal attacks on them nor scoop to their
    levels. Let them do what they want.

    I will add only a few more points to answer your questions and to complete
    the hujjat: details on personal meeting inshallah. For now this should
    suffice.

    I am NOT a follower of that idiot Yusuf. May Allah’s curse upon those who
    accuse me of following him. But you should also try to study his case. Did
    he really claim to be a Prophet? what did Maulana Sattar Niazi and dozens of
    scholars say in writing about Yusuf? what is the sessions court judgment on
    his conviction ? is he sentenced to death on claim of prophet hood or
    something else? who were the witnesses whose evidence was used? Were sharia
    and sunnah requirements were fulfilled in the sessions court ? Why no
    religious scholar appeared in the court to testify against him? What was the
    judgment of council of Islamic ideology after this case verdict? why no
    media group projected the case except Khabrain and Takbeer ? In fact, Nawai
    Waqt and nation defended Yusuf by publishing statements of top scholars
    defending yusuf ????? Was that a case of blasphemy or money disputes and
    sectarian warfare??? You MUST find this out.

    I work, live and inshallah will die only for Allah and Sayyadna Muhemmed
    Rasul Allah
    alone. I don’t work for any agency or secret group or cult,
    astaghfurullah.

    Life of every Muslim is sacred and cannot be taken on suspicion. Property
    of every Muslim of sacred and cannot be violated on suspicion. honor of
    every Muslim is sacred and cannot be violated without fulfilling
    requirements of Sharia and deen. The last sermon of Rasul Allah equates
    life, property and honor with sacred day of Hajj and sacred city of Makka.
    It is most unfortunate that those calling themselves as Muslims violate each
    and every basic tenant of Islam by involving themselves in utter and
    absolute Haram without any proof, sharia requirements or verifications. If
    we believe in Allah and Rasul Allah and fear the day of judgment, then we
    should be very very careful when a Muslim is accused of being a Kafir or
    murtid or doing his Takfir.. This is greatest of sins.

    Isn’t this strange that none of the accusers who write these articles seek
    any clarification from me nor have met me, nor know me, nor know nor willing
    to listen to any explanations. they keep coming back with pen names, e-mail
    names, refusing to listen to any clarifications nor accepting my invitation
    for a face to face debate ? what are they afraid of ? I left Karachi in 1992
    and have never met any of these accusers ever since, if ever. most of them I
    don’t even know. Have they given any proof of any allegations or still it is
    just hearsay or stories of “personal” experiences so factually wrong and
    lies that it is nauseating.

    All my life has been spent on razor edge for the sake of Allah and Rasul
    Allah (saw), risking and sacrificing everything that is considered precious
    in this world for the sake of Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw) and this deen. I
    was 22 years old when I went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviets when a life
    of worldly promise and brilliant career awaited me in Dunya. Spent six year
    in battle fields, surviving on daily basis, with my parents, wife, kids and
    loved ones not knowing in which valley my grave would be. I did not do all
    that for money, sense of adventure or to serve any secret service. By Allah
    it was and it still is for Allah, Rasul Allah and this Ummat e marhoom. When
    I came out after six years, i had to struggle on daily basis once again to
    feed and support my family. Jihad was NOT a paying venture. We spend from
    our own pockets or given most minor wazeefa of few hundred rupees per month
    by the jihadi commander we fought along with.

    My present work of BrassTacks and its Azaan is also with the same junoon
    and ‘dewangi”. It is Not for money or to serve any secret agenda. We have
    done over 70 programs. Apart from being anything against Islam, Quran or
    sunnah, these are highly subtle, sublime and sophisticated essence of deen
    and khair reviving the Ummah and nation and attacking the entire exis of
    Kufr and Dajjal. Cant we see the baraka and khair which Allah is giving to
    this mission and its message.

    My dear brother, in these times of fitnas, we need to be careful with
    people, I agree. But we should also be careful that we don’t shoot down the
    only message of dignity, honor and hope which has come out for this nation
    to fight and confront those who have declared war on Allah and Sayyadna
    Rasul Allah (saw). By Allah, I can say with confidence that those fighting
    against us are either Nadan dost or Dana dushman. By trying to destroy us,
    they only serve Zionists, bankers, Indians and our enemies of Pakistan and
    Ummah.

    May Allah be our guide and be my witness in what I have written. He is my
    Wakeel and I rest my case with Him alone.

    Jazak Allah once again and duago

    Zaid Hamid

    Sorry to say but anyone who has the slightest logical sense wud not see anything wrong with Asif’s posts. Amazingly I was so sure even before I completed reading Asif’s post what this time u would have exaggerated, twisted n played. I eaxctly knew that u guys wud ignore the IDEOLOGY n mess up everything, How naive , Im sure u guys arent as naive as this. As I said earlier in one of my posts to ZHExposition, I find this complete blog as hilarious as ever, numerous posts of mine have been deleted as they just dont wanna hear something they DONT wanna hear. Allah dilon pe pardey dal deta hai beshuk. Abusers when post nasty or useless comments on the official fan page r blocked or their posts are deleted n they complain. ZHE adopt a better strategy for promoting their prpoganda, here the posts do not appear without moderation, How fearful of u :). BTW how about a chnage as u seem tired enuf doing all this foul stuff, y dont u organize some English classes for those who dare speak unbiased n support the truth as U seem to keep finding flaws with their English n speech. Cheap tactics ZHExposition, btw just a piece of advice, let ur supporters know that Zaid Hamid hasnot been declared KAFIR as yet, So refrain using such terms without knowing what Allah knows! Fear Allah n ull feel better!

  43. Sana says:

    The more I visit your blog , the more I feel how insulting n biased ur behaviour is. It only would move sensible ppl away further. The content is extremely vague n nothing satisfies atleast a sensible, God fearing muslim.

  44. Sana says:

    oh yes one more thing now only let my post appear after uve worked on a karakaydar insulting reply to it like u do wid everyone 😀 FiAmanAllah

    @ Abu Muhammad

    AA

    we see the name ‘muhemmed” in zaid’s facebook page like in that 2008 reply to that guy…and march 25th of this year….and its refers to muhemmed yusuf kazzab…according to you guys and not to Hazrat Muhammad SAW

    BUT on the official brasstacks site….

    http://brasstacks.pk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=156:it-is-being-rumored-that-zaid-hamid-is-a-qadiani-or-follows-some-fake-prophet-could-you-please-comment-&catid=31:general&Itemid=88&lang=en

    It is being rumored that Zaid Hamid is a Qadiani or follows some fake prophet- could you please comment?
    Monday, 23 November 2009 13:08

    Total rubbish. Zaid Hamid is an Aashiq e Rasul and a most firm believer and protector of the finality of Hazur Sayyadna Mohammad Rasul Allah (sm). He has lived all his life protecting, guarding and projecting the honor of Rasul Allah (sm). He does not have and has never had any association with Qadianis or anyone claiming to be a false prophet.

    as you can see it is written as “Mohammad Rasul Allah (sm)”

    this come as a surprise to you? any ideas on this?

    also more questions have answers….

    his take on yusuf kazzab

    http://brasstacks.pk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=193:yousaf-ali&catid=31:general&Itemid=88&lang=en

    and

    why he wears a red cap…ridiculous answer i think….

    http://brasstacks.pk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=154:what-does-your-red-cap-signify&catid=31:general&Itemid=88&lang=en

    also

    http://brasstacks.pk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=115&Itemid=101&lang=en

    here we see ‘Muhammad Ali Jinnah”..so they can spell it the most common way as well…

    so three different ways of spelling it

    1.Muhemmed
    2.Mohammad
    3.Muhammad

  46. Salman Zafar says:

    why write ‘muhemmed’ on the forums???

  47. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Ahsan

    It is better that you let the person speak who is involved, rather than speaking on his behalf.

    It is not that I misunderstood him, it is just that he tried to put the things out of context and now same is done by you for the explanation.

    No one denied that the things mentioned in the 4 points might not have been said by many and done by many.

    The context was with respect to Yousuf Kazzab – if you want to refute, refute it from that perspective, not from the perspective of ‘bad things that go in Pakistan’.

    Before you tells others to avoid childish arguments, you better check yours.

  48. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Sana

    If by sensible people, you are trying to refer to yourself, then thank you very much, we are not in need of such sensible people.

    Hope no English Class is needed to explain this simple and clear statement.

    Please make your own way out, if your not satisfied nor convinced here. This has been relayed to you many times. But it looks to me that you really like us but don’t want to accept that publicly.

    The moderation is there to command the good and forbid the evil and for many people – including yourself – it seems to be a ‘fearful’ thing to do.

    We are happy that you have started to know us better now. Keep visiting.

    The caravan will go on, whether you like it or not.

  49. Abu Muhammad says:

    @ Salman Zafar

    Wa’alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

    The content in the blog are written by volunteers thus they would be using the actual spelling of Muhammad that is common unlike ‘Muhemmed’.

    Hope this clarifies.

  50. Abdul Muez says:

    The original wikipedia article about Yusuf Kazzab was started by someone named Asif Shiraz. This article was basically the same thing that was written by ZH in an online post.
    I noticed this fact when I was adding “citation needed” tags to this article.

    That wikipedia article got deleted a few days ago!
