Zaid Hamid has refused to call Yusuf a Kazzab even after Bilal Qutb who was the host of the program Door Andaish testified in front of Zaid Hamid that Yusuf Kazzab called himself to be a Prophet in front of Bilal Qutb. Recently Zaid Hamid appeared in a TV program called Door Andaish on Value TV. Incidently, the host of the program Bilal Qutb also happened to be a neighbor of Yusuf Kazzab at Shadman, Lahore.
During the interview Zaid Hamid stated that Yusuf Kazzab never declared himself to be a Prophet infront of him. Bilal Qutb recalled this for his TV audience that in Zaid Hamid’s meeting with Dr Israr, Dr Israr referred Zaid Hamid to a person who was an eye-witness of Yusuf Kazzab’s claim of prophethood. Zaid Hamid side-stepped from this statement and ignored it totally. On this, Bilal Qutb informed Zaid Hamid that he was a neighbor of Yusuf Kazzab at Shadman, Lahore and Yusuf Kazzab himself told Bilal Qutb that there is a Mohr e Nabuwwat on Yusuf Kazzab’s back. Bilal Qutb stated that he asked Yusuf Kazzab to show him the Mohr e Nabuwwat. On this Yusuf Kazzab said that not everyone can see the Mohr e Nabuwwat but his wife has seen the Mohr. Bilal Qutb said that he can say all this by putting his hand on the Holy Quran and said that he is giving a solemn statement.
But even after hearing this eye-witness shahadaat (gawahi) Zaid Hamid refused to call Yusuf a Kazzab and continued to repeat his lame arguments that go to Shariah Court and give this Shahadat in Shariah Court and get Yusuf declared a Kazzab in Shariah Court and only then I will declare him a Kazzab.
Zaid Hamid further stated that Yusuf never uttered such blasphemous views in front of him. This is a total and utter lie, since Zaid Hamid was present at Bait e Raza and during his Bait e Raza speech Yusuf Kazzab stated that Allah and Muhammad saaw are one, which is nothing but Shirq. And in the same Bait e Raza speech Yusuf Kazzab declared that a 2.5 year old child has seen Prophet Muhammad saaw i.e. Yusuf Kazzab.
It is hard to believe that Yusuf uttered his blasphemous views in front of his neighbor of a few years i.e. Bilal Qutb – but never told Zaid Hamid about his Mohr e Nabuwwat even though Zaid Hamid knew him since 1992 and defended Yusuf Kazzab till Yusuf was killed in Jail.
Zaid Hamid says that he never supported the views of Yusuf Kazzab, but during the entire court proceedings – Yusuf Kazzab’s views were discussed and Zaid Hamid was present in each and every session to show his solidarity to his Prophet. If he did not supported Yusuf Kazzab’s views, what was he doing in the court sessions. If Zaid Hamid did not supported Yusuf Kazzab’s views why did he write the article in Daily DAWN calling Yusuf Kazzab to be a great scholar of Islam and a great sufi. If this is not called supporting Yusuf Kazzab’s views than what else is called supporting Yusuf Kazzab’s views ?
Zaid Hamid’s fans will still say that it is now proved that Zaid Hamid is not a follower of Yusuf Kazzab since he has called Yusuf to be corrupt. But what they fail to see is that Zaid Hamid has refused to call Yusuf a Kazzab even when a Muslim has given Shahadat in front of Zaid Hamid on National TV that Yusuf stated that there is Mohr e Nabuwwat on his back. Zaid Hamid has refused to call Yusuf a Kazzab even when Dr Israr referred him to eye-witnesses who can testify that Yusuf used to call himself Prophet Muhammad saaw (Nauzobillah).
Zaid Hamid’s fans and every other muslim should know that entire Deen is based on Shahadat (Gawahi). Hazrat Abu Bakr RA never heard Musailma Kazzab calling himself to be a prophet. However, Musailma was declared a Kazzab because enough people testified (gave shahadat) that Musailma has declared himself to be a prophet. Hazrat Abu Bakr RA accepted this testimony of other people. One important thing to note here is that Hazrat Abu Bakr RA accepted the testimony of other people and declared Musailma to be a Kazzab, but Zaid Hamid is refusing to accept the testimony of other Muslims and saying that these testimonies does not fulfill Shariah principles. Does this not mean that Zaid Hamid is saying that Hazrat Abu Bakr RA did not fully understood Shariah principles that is why He RA accepted the testimony of others – without himself going and listening to Musailma’s point of view.
Zaid Hamid stated that what sort of a person calls his Nabi to be corrupt. This is what Zaid Hamid’s fans also state here and there. But for the information of Zaid Hamid and his fans, before Zaid Hamid’s association with Yusuf Kazzab became public, Zaid Hamid never ever called Yusuf to be Gumrah or corrupt. Zaid Hamid can not show a single public statement or writing in which he has called Yusuf to be Gumrah or corrupt before 2008. In fact in his video leaked by students of Shifa Medical college, that created this entire storm – Zaid Hamid went as far as calling Khabrain and Zia Shahid to be corrupt. So previously he was calling Khabrain to be corrupt, but now that has changed and now Zaid Hamid has realized that it was not Khabrain but Yusuf who was corrupt. Zaid Hamid is now calling Yusuf to be corrupt to side-step from having to call Yusuf a Kazzab. This is what Bilal Qutb also referred to, that Qadyani’s do the same thing. They side-step from the real argument and accept petty things but never accept that Mirza Qadyani was a Kazzab and a False Prophet. Zaid Hamid is doing nothing new. He is just following the foot steps of Qadyanis.
The most funny thing about Zaid Hamid’s arguments were that on the one hand he was refusing to call Yusuf a Kazzab stating that Shariah requirements were not fulfilled and on the other hand he was saying that he is not a religious expert who can give Fatwa. Zaid Hamid if you are not a religious expert who can give fatwa, how can you declare that Shariah requirements to call Yusuf a Kazzab were not fulfilled ? At one hand you state that you are not a religious expert but on the other hand you make statements that sound as if you know religion more than Dr Israr, Moulana Abdur Rehman Ashrafi, Mufti Ghulam Sarwar Qadri, Mufti Naeem and other top religious scholars – all of whom declared Yusuf to be a Kazzab.
By calling his own prophet corrupt and gumrah, with whom Zaid Hamid spent 10 years of his life and from whom Zaid Hamid learned all his spirituality and religion, Zaid Hamid has proved that he is not loyal even to his False Prophet – Yusuf Kazzab.
Do listen to this statement of Bilal Qutb in which he said that when I am giving you Shahadat that Yusuf declared himself to be a Nabi and you are still refusing to call him a Kazzab – where all your Ishq e Rasool has gone at this time ?
The discussion on Yusuf Kazzab issue starts around 5:00 of Part 3 and continues in Part 4 of the interview.
