Zaid Hamid is using popular sentiments, to stir up support for himself and for self glorification. What he is saying is not anything new in the islamic world. Marhoom Dr. Israr worked all his life for establishment of khilafat….just compare the life and work of Dr. Israr with Zaid Hamid. Ghazi abdul rasheed of Lal Masjid who preferred to die for his cause along with his followers was demanding, Islamic Sharia based system in Pakistan, Justice for all, Khilafat, Riba free society. Are these not the same things that Zaid Hamid is saying but why was Zaid Hamid tooth and nail agaist the Lal Masjid molvi’s. When the objective of him and them was exactly the same. Have you ever thought about it kids? And there are numerous other examples not just in Pakistan but in the contemporary world today.
The problem with Zaid Hamid is that he wants to establish himself a spritual leader ( although he has no background…in fact he has a controvercial past and aqeeda). He in subtle ways tries to influence his young followers that He has direct connection with RasoolAllah SAAW, that whatever he says is all Truth and there is no room for difference of opinion with him, he considers anyone with independent thought and a thinking mind as Enemy and CIA+RAW+Mossad agent.
There is nothing wrong with what his says his objectives are but there are Serious Problems with His Intentions. With his credibility, his aqeeda, his hypocrisy in public and private life. He does not stop ever in claiming to be an ashiq e rasool. Does his own life reflect following the teaching of Prophet Muhammad SAAW, mere claims do not make us ashiq….there is no love of rasool if one cannot do ‘ Ittaba e rasool’ in letter and in spirit.
His actions speak of a immature mind trying to become hero overnight, trying to use facebook like any teenager to publish his photo session with prominent personalities.
Has any of his fans ever seen this behaviour in Dr. Israr, or other leading ulema and scholars of Islam of this time.
What is Zaid Hamid’s knowledge base of Quran and Sunnah and Hadith, Has he ever written any credible book on Quran and Sunnah, was he ever a student of a known and respected aalim, then how come he is inventing new interpretations of Quran and hadith. Infact He has spent the major portion of his life from 1991 to 2002 in the company of a False prophet, a thug and a morally corrupt man. Afsoos that Zaid Hamid even now defends his False Prophet as a sufi and scholar of Quran, does it not proove that he has learned his Quran and Hadith from Yusuf kazzab and follows the same philosophy of that kazzab believed in even today.
Does a man who only has an engineering background and then spends more than ten years in the company and blind following of a false prophet and is in the security business be called an authority of Quran and Hadith. Any original research? any original scholarly work? NONE!
He himself claims his source of information is Google, Lahowla wala Quwwat.
What is the basis of his claims of his ‘direct relationship’ with Rasool Allah (nauzobillah). Who are the people whom he considers as his frineds and critics. A man who cannot bear to listen to any criticism on his words and actions and uses foul language, abuses everyone and anyone who has a difference of opinion and projects himself as God sent saviour of ummah is a clear case of mental imbalance. He is in grave illusion about himself and someone has to knock some sense into him before he loses all and takes other innocent people with him to the path of total destruction.
Indeed guidance is only from Allah. And there is no loss greater than the loss of Iman for a true servant of Allah.
