Inna lil Allah … Dr Israr Ahmed has left this mortal world and has entered the never ending life of here after. Verily we all have to leave this mortal world one day. The death of a momin is never a moment of sorrow, but one of happiness that he successfully left the tribulations of this world – which are nothing but a test for all of us – and has now gone on to reap his rewards – which are enormous and never ending.
Dr Israr was extremely sick for the last month or so, but even then he was the first one to condemn Zaid Hamid, and disassociated himself from Zaid Hamid in unequivocal terms by calling Yusuf a Kazab and asking Zaid Hamid to do the same. It was Dr. Israr’s Mominana clarity and unwavering stand – alongwith Moulana Jalalpuri’s shahadat that became the founding stone of this moment against Zaid Hamid and Yusuf Kazab.
In the beginning Dr Israr released a press release disassociating himself from Zaid Hamid and calling Yusuf a Kazab. This press release can be viewed at Tanzeem-i-Islami Releases Their Official Position On Yusuf Kazab and Zaid Hamid.
But Zaid Hamid twisted the press release and made it look as if Dr Israr has accepted his Touba and has embraced him. This infuriated Dr Israr even further and he went on to issue a final, precise and blunt press statement that will forever shut the mouth of the Zaid Hamid who wanted to portray Dr Israr as a companion of Kazab and his Khalifa – Zaid Hamid.

Zaid Hamid’s team approached Dr Israr frantically during all this time – and asked him to stay quiet on the issue, as that would have given the Zaid Hamid team to continue with their propaganda of Dr Israr’s support for Zaid Hamid. However, this Mard e Momin refused to stay quiet and performed his Azan on the issue of Kazab and his Khalifa.
May Allah specially reward Dr Israr for his two press releases, which were one of the first condemnations of Zaid Hamid by any religious scholar in Pakistan – after this issue ensued.
