Questions From Zaki Khalid of TeamBT and Their Answers by ZHE

These questions were asked by Zaki Khalid, a member of Team BT. It was Zaki’s wish that only ZHE should respond to them, so we have tried to fulfill his demand.

My simple Questions are :

Q1) When did Zaid Hamid say Yusuf is his Prophet? Na’uzbillah

Q2) When did Zaid Hamid say that he is Yusuf’s Khalifah/

Q3) When did Zaid Hamid say that he is Yusuf’s Sahabi?

Q4) When did Zaid Hamid preach Yusuf or his beliefs?

These are the main questions, I hope you don’t mind a little more addition.

Q5) Until Zaid Hamid will not curse Yusuf, he is not a Muslim near you, where did this theory come from? Reference from Quran or Hadith?

I hope NOW that stupid Khurasan Mujahid chooza or some other fasadi will not poke their nose into this.


Q1) When did Zaid Hamid say Yusuf is his Prophet? Na’uzbillah

Zaid Hamid does not say that Yusuf is his prophet, because Yusuf did not said that he is a Prophet. Yusuf claimed that he is Muhammad (Nauzobillah) and this is the believe of Zaid Hamid that Yusuf was the re-incarnation of Muhammad saaw (Nauzobillah). If some one claims to be Muhammad saaw, he does not have to additionally claim himself to be a Prophet, because Muhammad saaw is a prophet beyond doubt.

There are eye-witnesses of this belief of Zaid Hamid. Fortunately those eye-witnesses are still alive. Hesham Syed is one such eye-witness. In a meeting with Zaid Hamid at his flat in Pindi, Zaid Hamid told Hesham Syed that you have met Prophet Muhammad saaw, but you did not recognized him.

So once again. Zaid Hamid does not say Yusuf is his Prophet. Instead he says that his prophet is Muhammad saaw, but he believes Yusuf Kazzab to be Muhammad saaw as well together with Muhammad bin Abdullah saaw.

Q2) When did Zaid Hamid say that he is Yusuf’s Khalifah ?

Zaid Hamid has not claimed in public that he is Yusuf’s Khalifah and even if he had said so, it wont have been significant. Instead it was Yusuf Kazzab who made him his Khalifah and declared him his Sahabi in a public gathering at Bait e Raza.

Lets consider that I claim that I am the right hand man of Gen Kayani, this claim of mine will have no significance unless and untill Gen Kayani himself says that I am his right hand man. Similarly, Zaid Hamid’s claim that he is Yusuf’s Khalifah would have been less significant. Instead of that Yusuf himself declared Zaid Hamid to be his Khalifah and his Sahabi – which is far more significant and authoritative.

For references, listen to the Bait e Raza audio speech of Yusuf Kazzab and his Sahabi Zaid Hamid. and also read the letters of Yusuf Kazzab written from Jail to his mureeds in which he instructed his mureeds to do as his Khalifah Zaid Hamid says.

Zaid Hamid proved to be Yusuf’s Khalifah together with Sohail by accompanying him in all court hearings. Writing an article in Daily DAWN trying to re-write history. Defending Yusuf at all forums and even to this day. Watch the leaked video of March 2010 and you will find out that Zaid Hamid was doing nothing but defending his Prophet Yusuf Kazzab. If Zaid Hamid would not have been Yusuf’s Khalifah, he would not have been involved in defending his false prophet 10 years after Yusuf’s death. The fact that Zaid Hamid still defends Yusuf Kazzab, is a testament of the level of Iman Zaid Hamid has in Yusuf Kazzab.

Q3) When did Zaid Hamid say that he is Yusuf’s Sahabi?

Refer to the ans. of Ques 2.

Q4) When did Zaid Hamid preach Yusuf or his beliefs?

Preaching is of many types, such as preaching with words, preaching with actions and so on. But the essence of preaching is that the other person should start following or doing what you do.

Prophet Muhammad saaw believed that Allah is ONE and he preached that and all of his Sahaba believed in the same thing that Allah is ONE.

Zaid Hamid believes that Yusuf is not a Kazzab, because he was the re-incarnation of Muhammad saaw and hence can not be a false prophet because Muhammad saaw is a true Prophet.

Similar to Zaid Hamid, all of his fans – who prior to 2008 have not heard the name of Yusuf Kazzab now also believe that Yusuf is not a Kazzab. This is called preaching – i.e. to make others believe or act upon what you believe or what you do.

Q5) Until Zaid Hamid will not curse Yusuf, he is not a Muslim near you, where did this theory come from? Reference from Quran or Hadith?

You are a knowledgeable person, go read the history books and find out what Sahaba RA made the followers of Saja bint e Haris do to make them revert back to Islam.

Hope your questions have been answered.

Guidance is from Allah and Allah alone !!!

Hassan bin Sabit RA: The Poet of the Holy Prophet saaw

In a recent program of Point Blank with Mubashir Lucman in which Zaid Hamid was present, a religious scholar named Muhammad Ayub was also invited. To be honest I have never heard about Muhammad Ayub before, neither do I know from which Madrassah has he obtained his religious education.

Referring to Sura e As Shuara, Muhammad Ayub claimed that Poetry is not allowed in Islam and no Poet was a Prophet or a Sahabi. He at one time stated that Quran states that people should leave poetry to become momin.

Firstly, it was beyond me that how on earth was the topic of “Poetry in Islam” relevant to the issue of Zaid Hamid and Yusuf Kazzab. It seems that Mubashir Lucman invited Muhammad Ayub on purpose to disgrace Ulema e Karam and make this point that:

Ulema are against poets and consider poetry to be haram and poets to be kafir and people on whom Shayateen descend. And that since Allama Iqbal was also a poet, so he is also a kafir.

After allowing Muhammad Ayub to discuss the issue of “Poetry in Islam”, Mubashir Lucman gave his final statements that just like Muhammad Ayub considers poetry to be haram and poets to be kafir on the basis of verses of Quran, similarly there could be different interpretations of other verses of Holy Quran. So we should not be against Zaid Hamid specially when he has denied his association with Yusuf Kazzab and have clarified every thing.

Mubashir Lucman should know this that the issue of Khatam e Nabuwwat is not an issue on which Ulema have different interpretations. Ulema’s of all maslaks are unanimous on this issue that Yusuf Kazzab was a Kazzab and it is the Ijmah of the Ummat that any person who does not consider a Kazzab to be a Kazzab is a Kafir.

Poetry is not Haram and Poets are not Kafirs

Now lets address the controversy that Muhammad Ayub has raised, which helped Zaid Hamid and Mubashir Lucman to skip the real topic and issue of Khatam e Nabuwwat. Muhammad Ayub should know that not only did Prophet Muhammad saaw himself used to listen to poetry, he used to ask his companion Hazrat Hassan bin Sabit RA to do poetry in his (saaw) presence.

Hassan bin Sabit RA is a famous Sahabi (companion of the Holy Prophet saaw). Hassan bin Sabit RA was famous in all of Hejaz for his poetry and after accepting Islam, used his poetry to defend the honor of Prophet Muhammad saaw. At one occasion, non-believers wrote defamatory verses against Prophet Muhammad saaw. When Prophet Muhammad saaw got to know about those verses, he called Hassan bin Sabit RA to Masjid e Nabwi. When Hassan bin Sabit RA came to Masjid e Nabwi, Prophet Muhammad saaw stood up from his Mimbar and asked Hassan bin Sabit RA to sit on the Mimbar of the Holy Prophet saaw and reply to the defamatory poetry.

Prophet Muhammad saaw sat on the floor, while Hassan bin Sabit RA responded to the defamatory poetry against our Holy Prophet saaw. The verses that Hassan bin Sabit RA said at that occasion are now known as “Qaseeda e Hassan bin Sabit RA”.

Wikipedia Article states the following about Hazrat Hassan bin Sabit RA:

Hassaan ibn Thabit (Arabic: حسان بن ثابت‎) (died 674) was an Arabian poet and one of the Sahaba, or companions of Muhammad. He was born in Yathrib (Medina), and was member of the Banu Khazraj tribe.

In his youth he traveled to Al-Hirah and Damascus, then settled in Medina, where, after the advent of Muhammad, he accepted Islam and wrote poems in defence of him. He was one of the best poets of the time, who would often win poetry competitions and the like. He was a prime example of how the early Muslims were able to use their pre-Islam talents for the cause of Islam.

Muhammad gave Hassaan his slave Sirin, the sister of Muhammad’s wife Maria al-Qibtiyya. The sisters were Egyptian Coptic Christians sent as gifts to Muhammad by Muqawqis, a ruler of Egypt, in around 628. Sirin bore Hassaan a son, ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Hassaan.[1]


Poetry is not haram in Islam and Poets are not Kafirs. In fact some of the most beloved companions of the Holy Prophet saaw were poets and Holy Prophet saaw used to ask them to say verses in his presence.

Muhammad Ayub should learn Holy Quran from some authentic Alim e Deen before preaching it on National TV.

Mubashir Lucman should not deviate from the real issue of Khatam e Nabuwwat by creating confusion about “Poetry in Islam”, which is never a point of contention between Zaid Hamid and AMTKN/ZHE.

If Mubashir Lucman really believes in objective journalism, he should have invited someone from AMTKN instead of Muhammad Ayub and should have allowed that Alim from AMTKN to present his case on the issue as well.

Qaseeda e Hassan bin Sabit RA

Mufti Anas Younus, who is an Alim from Deoband has now translated the “Qaseeda e Hassan bin Sabit RA” into urdu and has read it in a nasheed. Both the exact arabic verses that Hazrat Hassan bin Sabit RA read in front of Prophet Muhammad saaw and the urdu translation of those verses can be heard in Mufti Anas Younus’s voice in the videos embedded below:

Zaid Hamid Defends Yusuf Kazzab on Point Blank With Mubashir Lucman [Video]

In a recent program of Point Blank with Mubashir Lucman, Zaid Hamid was questioned about his links with Yusuf Kazzab. Recording of the program is embedded above.

In the first video from 2:00 – 3:30

Mubashir Lucman states that he believes in Prophet Muhammad saaw being the last prophet and Zaid Hamid agrees.

Then Mubashir further states that if someone has claimed to be a Prophet after Prophet Muhammad saaw is a Kazzab. Zaid agrees to that too, but once again fails to call Yusuf Kazzab to be a Kazzab by specifically taking his name.

From 4:30 – 6:30

Mubashir Lucman refers to a story of Daily Ummat in which Daily Ummat discloses that Zaid Hamid has divorced his wife because she was unwilling to follow the deviant path of Yusuf Kazzab.

Zaid Hamid’s response: I dont want to comment on Daily Ummat and all this is non-sense and rubbish.

Mubashir Lucman: So this Divorce news is not true ?

Zaid Hamid: No, that is my personal matter. I had differences with my wife … blah blah.

So Zaid Hamid claims that Ummat published a false and fabricated story about Zaid Hamid divorcing his wife, but then accepts that he has divorced his wife. Then how on earth does, the report of Ummat becomes false and fabricated ?

What Mubashir Lucman failed to tell his audience was that the report was published in Daily Ummat after reporters from Daily Ummat conducted a thorough and detailed interview with Zaid Hamid’s ex-wife. So nothing in that report was baseless or fabricated.

From 9:00 – till end of part 1

Start of 2nd Part – 3:30

Mubashir Lucman asks him about his Afghan Jihad and states that your closed friends state that you went to Afghanistan once or twice, but were never involved in real Jihad there.

Zaid Hamid responds by saying that all of his heroics in Afghanistan are well-documented.

Mubashir Lucman Ahmed Shah Masood was fighting against Taliban, So you fought against Taliban ?

Zaid Hamid responds Look Mubashir I came out of Afghanistan in 1992, and In 1992 there was no existence of Taliban

But what Zaid Hamid refused to tell was that it was the same people against whom he fought together with Ahmed Shah Masood, that later became Taliban. Zaid Hamid’s close friends with whom ZHE has also spoken state that Zaid Hamid was supporting Northern Alliance and Ahmed Shah Masood and used to come to Pakistan and call the real Mujahideen to be Thieves and Bandits. It was these same Mujahideen who later became Taliban.

From 3:53 – 5:00

Mubashir Lucman Then you came to Pindi, so when did you started Brasstacks ?

Zaid Hamid responds that He first joined Brinks in 1994 as a manager and stayed with it for 5 years. So Zaid Hamid is admitting that he remained with Brinks till 1999.

The case against Yusuf Kazzab was started in 1997 and was judged in 2000. It is well documented in news papers, that Brinks was providing security to Yusuf Kazzab and his house in Lahore, even when Yusuf was on trial in Court. If you read the news papers of the time, you will see repeated mentions of the fact that a Manager of a private security company is also a follower of Yusuf Kazzab.

Now you may know that who that manager was.

From 5:20 – 5:50

Mubashir Lucman So when did you met Yusuf ?

Zaid Hamid responds that he met Yusuf in 1992 in Karachi. After 1992, I left Karachi – so people of Karachi dont know how much and what relations I had with Yusuf. Whatever they say is suni sunai and jhoot.

The problem with this is that in his leaked video – that was leaked in early march. Zaid Hamid states that he met Yusuf in 1992 but then came to Rawalpindi, so then he do not know what Yusuf did and had no contact with Yusuf.

But now he is stating that he met Yusuf in 1992, but then he came to Rawalpindi so the people of Karachi do not know what contacts he had with Yusuf.

From 5:50 – 8:20

Mubashir Lucman Why you introduced Yusuf in your close circles by stating that he is a Rohani Shakhsiat and can make you have Ziarat of Prophet saaw. ?

Zaid Hamid responds Rubbish, total rubbish.

Zaid Hamid further states that Yusuf was a mystic.

But the problem with this response is, that the people whom Zaid Hamid introduced to Yusuf by stating that Yusuf will make you meet Prophet saaw are still alive and can testify to this anytime anywhere. Zaid Hamid even told Hesham Syed that he has already met Prophet saaw but has not recognized him. Hesham Syed states that he has no doubt that Zaid Hamid was referring to Yusuf Kazzab.

Zaid Hamid states that Yusuf was a mystic but fails to tell, what was it that Yusuf used to say to people to show that he is a mystic.

Yusuf used to tell people that he is a mystic of such caliber that he can make them meet Prophet saaw. Yusuf used to demand money from people in order to make them meet Prophet saaw and then used to take them in a room and state to them that he is Muhammad (Nauzobillah).

Mubashir Tries to Rescue Zaid Hamid

Mubashir Lucman then wastes half of his program on a discussion of poetry in religion, which had nothing to do with Yusuf Kazzab issue. Poetry or Iqbal’s ideology was never a point of contention between ZHE/AMTKN and Zaid Hamid.

After allowing Muhammad Ayub to make his point and interpret in his own words, the ayats of Holy Quran – Mubashir stated in the end that it might be possible that some of us are not interpreting Quran or Fiqah correctly.

So is Mubashir trying to say that just like Muhammad Ayub was misinterpreting the verses on poets and poetry, we are misinterpreting the verses on Khatam e Nabuwwat and Finality of Prophethood ?

Mubashir Lucman felt it to be fair to invite Zaid Hamid to his show to take his point of view on the Yusuf Kazzab issue, but failed to invite Ulema of AMTKN to take their point of view on the same issue.

Mubashir Lucman invited son of Khalid Khawaja on his show to take his point of view on the Hamid Mir controversy, but failed to invite Hamid Mir to take Hamid’s point of view on the same issue.

And then Mubashir claims that it is fair to invite a person to take his point of view and this is what objective journalism should be. But shouldnt an objective journalist also invite the other party to hear to their point of view as well ?

Perhaps that does not fall in the category of objective journalism, specially if someone’s objective is to provide the audience with biased analysis and twisted and one sided narratives.

Mubashir stated in the end that Zaid Hamid has clarified everything, but what exactly has he clarified.

We alleged that Zaid Hamid knew Yusuf Kazzab. Zaid Hamid has now accepted it.

We alleged that Zaid Hamid defended Yusuf Kazzab in Court. This is a fact and Zaid Hamid has never denied it.

We alleged that Zaid Hamid defended Yusuf Kazzab even after his death. This is a fact as is evident from Zaid Hamid’s Daily DAWN article of 2000, his leaked video of March 2010. It is evident from the fact that he still defends Kazzab and states that Yusuf never claimed to be a prohet and the fact that Zaid Hamid still refuses to call Yusuf a Kazzab.

So again what exactly did Zaid Hamid clarified ? Oh yes. He clarified that he was associated with Yusuf Kazzab.

AMTKN's Views on Altaf Hussain's Qadyani Statement

Source: Aalami Majlis e Tahafuz e Khatam e Nabuwat – AMTKN

Editor’s Note: Altaf Hussain or other political leaders are not our focus. However, we are publishing the view of AMTKN on Altaf Hussain’s Qadyani statement just to let every one and specially Zaid Hamid’s fans know that AMTKN will defend the honor and namoos of Prophet Muhammad saaw – no matter what the cost and no matter against whom AMTKN will have to speak.

Shabaan Khatam e Nabuwat's Response to Zaid Hamid Fans Propaganda

May ALLAH (S.W.T) bless everyone who has supported the cause of Khatm e Nubuwwat in any way.

We (Shabaan Khatam e Nabuwat/ZHE) are not afraid of any propaganda done by Zaid Hamid or his fans neither are we dejected by the Fasadi and Takfiri titles that they have bestowed upon us. We are only answerable to Allah and Ulema e Karam.  As long as Ulema are satisfied with our work, we are least bothered about the allegations leveled upon us by any one – be they Zaid Hamid fans or Qadyani’s or Gohar Shahis.

The allegations are not new to us, we have been used to of all this. Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadyani and his cohorts resorted to similar tactics and did their best to abuse Ulema e Karam, Mashaikh e Uzzam and Muslim Ummah in general.

It is irrelevant whether they call us RAW/CIA/MOSSAD backed terrorists, a paleed Jew or a napaak Hindu. We know who we are and how much sacrifices our ancestors made for Pakistan. Insha Allah we will never hesitate to sacrifice our lives for Pakistan, for Islam.

Whatever they may say or do, we will never allow the followers of Kazzab and Qadiyani to hijack our mother land. We will never allow them to use the poetry of Hazrat Allama Iqbal against the cause of Khatm e Nubuwwat.

The only choice left before Zaid Hamid is to accept the challenge of MUNAZIRAH or MUBAHILAH by Moulana Muhammad Akram Tufani (AMTKN) in which he can prove that Yusuf Ali never claimed to be a prophet and Insha Allah with Allah’s will Moulana Akram Tufani will prove to Zaid Hamid’s fans and the rest of the world that Yusuf claimed to be a prophet and was a Kazab and a Dajjal.

Shabaan Khatam e Nabuwat/ZHE will continue with its effort to protect the cause of defending the finality of prophethood till our last breath. We believe that the defense of Khatam e Nabuwat is the duty of every muslim. In this regard, anyone and everyone who wants to contribute to this cause can send updates, news, content (articles, audio, videos etc). The admin team will insha’ALLAH publish the contributions on ZHE in due time. Shabaan Khatam e Nabuwat/ZHE is not concerned with the personal affiliations of any of the external reporting sources.

As far as the terrorist allegations on ZHE are concerned – we would request Zaid Hamid fans to also look into the background of Immad Khalid – the right hand man of Zaid Hamid. Even a cursory inspection will reveal affiliation and association with organizations that have been declared terrorists and face bans in Pakistan and Abroad. As for anti-state activities, it is worthwhile to note that Zaid Hamid himself claims to be affiliated with Ahmed Shah Masood – who became renowned around the world for leading the Northern Alliance Resistance, which was backed by Indian RAW and Mossad.

We have never talked about Immad Khalid or Zaid Hamid’s militant affiliations because that is not our primary concern. The defense of Khatam e Nabuwat is our first and foremost obligation, everything else is secondary.

Some Changes At ZHE

Zaid Hamid Exposition was under-going some internal changes for the past one week now. As part of these changes ZHE has now been taken over by a new administration.

These changes are being summarized below:

Personnel Changes

  • Fidaiye Rasool saaw and Abu Muhammad have handed over the control of ZHE to a new team.
  • fidaiye rasool saaw, and Ajeer e Khas have handed over the control and administration of ZHE’s fb fanpage to a new team.

Editorial Changes

  • The migration of the site from to is now complete. All links and images now work perfectly (Alhamdolillah). Do let us know if something isn’t working.
  • The profile image of ZHE fb fanpage has been edited to omit out Islamic Emirate of Pakistan. This is because the sole objective and mission of AMTKN is the defense of the Finality of Prophethood.
  • The ZHE website now has a new design and layout.

Privacy Changes

  • The new design of ZHE website hides out the names of the authors of a specific post.
  • All posts from Fidaiye Rasool saaw and Abu Muhammad have been merged to a single editorial account. The editorial account will not bear the name of any individual.

Objectives of Internal Changes

The changes have been made to:

  • Better protect the identities of the new team that has taken over ZHE.
  • Completely align ZHE with the ideology and mission of AMTKN.

The changes were made so transparently that no one noticed them. Inshallah, we will make all efforts to carry on with the legacy of the previous team. May Allah bless them for their work, and may it suffice them on the day of judgement.

We hope that ZHE fans will continue to support us, just as they supported the previous team.

May Allah help us, guide us and bless our work with Barakah.

TeamBT: No Zaid Hamid Is Not Imam Mehdi AS

Yesterday Humaira Naz from TeamBT posted an article in the discussion board of the official fan page of Zaid Hamid on facebook. The title of the discussion board article was “HOW WILL THE MAHDI BE RECOGNIZED? (THE MAHDI’S SPIRITUAL ATTRIBUTES)”. The article was a blatant rip off of Harun Yahya’s article which can be read on Harun Yahya’s website.

Although Humaira Naz or TeamBT never explicitly mentioned this, but the article was implying that Zaid Hamid is Imam Mehdi AS. We posted the article on our site and asked TeamBT to explicitly answer this question, whether they consider Zaid Hamid to be Imam Mehdi or not ?

The fans of Zaid Hamid also started suspecting this and said openly that after reading the article they have a feeling that Zaid Hamid is Imam Mehdi AS. We also asked our fans to post the question about Zaid Hamid being Imam Mehdi AS on the discussion board and on the wall of Zaid Hamid’s fan page. See their answer on the discussion board of Zaid Hamid here.

TeamBT has now deleted the article and have explicitly mentioned that they neither consider Zaid Hamid to be Imam Mehdi AS nor they have any plans to declare him Imam Mehdi AS in the future.

We thank TeamBT for such a straight and to the point answer. We are extremely grateful and really appreciate this. Jazak Allah and may Allah bless you.

Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid [Official] @All,

Humaira here. I am a big fan of Harun Yahya’s writings and was going through his article yesterday. I found it interesting and posted it here… I neither ever said that Zaid sb is Imam Mahdi nor I have any such intentions. The topic is deleted because people are drawing something wrong from it, its as simple as that. ZHE has been doing cheap tactics since long… I think we should know their style and attitude by now. I apologize for creating any confusions by posting Harun Yahya’s work, never knew people will go this far to draw out false information from it.

Clarification by Asif Shiraz Regarding His Comments About Yusuf Kazab and Zaid Hamid

Editor’s Note: Asif Shiraz has left a detailed comment on our article Is Asif Shiraz really an ex-member Brasstacks ?. The comment was posted on Zaid Hamid Exposition facebook fanpage and can be viewed here. The clarification is being published in verbatim here.

Asif Shiraz Salam Guys…

The nature and workings of ZHE group have become more appropriate and befitting for someone who loves to hate zaid hamid…. instead of someone who loves Rasool Allah (sm)…

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for making me so popular. I never knew taking my video off the internet would make me even more popular than putting it on 🙂 lol…

Let me tell you some hard facts, which some of you will probably dislike a lot.. (because again… muawiya ki nafrat ali ke muhabbat se barh gayee hai).

Let me at first start by proposing a solution to this whole thing, before saying anything further. The solution is verse 3:61. Challenge zaid hamid according to this verse.. doodh ka doodh aur paani ka paani hoe jai ga.

Now, about me and my *Video* 🙂

When zaid started brasstacks, I joined him whole heartedly because to me, it was an attempt to genuinely serve pakistan. I knew he had done tauba for yousaf issue back around 2000 even while yusuf was alive, so I was satisfied he is not trying to bring out yousaf ideology or anything. Besides, the *real* followers of yousaf kazzab are still running loose and just because they don’t come on TV, and just because challenging them isn’t a high profile thing to do, so our fidayeen-e-rasool of this group probably felt more excited trying to focus on zaid. Anyway.. coming back to point… so when I joined brasstacks, Zaid took up this stance that even though “lying” is haram, “hiding” the facts is permissible when intentions are good, e.g. Hz. Abu Bakr Siddique (rz) “hid” the fact of the Prophet(sm) accompanying him when a guard asked him that who is with him.

So as I saw it from within brasstacks, zaid never really lied to anyone directly. He never said i’m not zaid zaman. he just used the name Zaid Hamid. He never said that the audio is not his: He only said that please bring real owner or recorder of that audio so we can comment on it. Similarly, there is no one who can say that zaid lied, in any of his emails. yes, he is guilty of hiding things, guilty of giving “broad” statements which circumvented some pointed questions, but that is not lying, technically speaking. I was aware of the “circumvention” and let it happen, indeed participated in it at times, because I genuinely believed that Zaid had done tauba, and the only reason we are circumventing this issue because it will create needless hindrances in an otherwise well-intentioned good work that we are doing.

Zaid is good at words in this sense. Even in his 58 minute released video, at one point he said “I came to rawalpindi in 1992 and never knew what was happening in karachi”. Some people undertook this statement to mean that he is saying he never “met” yousaf after 1992, but technically, that is not what he said. All he said was, I didn’t know everything that happened in karachi.

I’m not a fan myself of this kind of double talk, nor am I defending why he does this. All I am saying is, he never directly lied. Now, why did he do this?

Like I said, my impression was that he wants to do something good, and is afraid that his past will catch up with him, and no one will believe he has done tauba. That is why I continued silence over such deception, while privately exhorting him to come out clearly in the open.

However, I also am personally a witness to the fact that zaid hamid left kazzab yousaf even while yousaf was alive. We prayed in the same mosque in chaklala and I knew what was happening in his life. This is a hard and bitter pill for those to swallow who are extremely keen on presenting zaid has yousaf’s minion, but the fact is, zaid is himself on “BITTER” terms with the actual followers of yousaf kazzab. Zaid hamix exposition guys know this. But they will never tell you this. They know that zaid does not even talk to yousaf’s followers. But they neither go against yousaf’s real followers, nor do they highlight this fact, because they want to “sell” this impression that zaid is trying to bring back and revive yousaf’s ideology.

The truth is, it always remains a possibility that zaid is simply being egotistical of his personal sincerity even while being misguided by yousauf, and inspite of having realized it privately, does not want to say it in public. The other possibility, that the whole brasstacks is a farce and zaid has realy been working on a covert agenda to re-establish yousaf as a nabi, is based on one single, solitary fact: Zaid not callimg him a kazzab. other than that, there is still absolutely no concrete evidence that can establish how zaid is involved in trying to promote yousaf’s ideology.

Zaid hamid exposition site is doing a wonderful job exposing yousaf kazzab. But a very poor job in trying to go to all lengths and all extremes to paint zaid negatively, as much as possible. So much so that they didn’t even leave me. 🙂

I ask them just one question. Kazzab toe kazzab theher gaya. Now where is the fatwa which says that kazzab yousaf koe kazzab na kehna wala bhi kazzab hai?

And lastly, I’m sure something that you will apply on me, kazzab yousaf koe kazzab na kehnay walay koe bhi kazzab na kehlay wala bhi kazzab hai 🙂 (Iss last pool mein yeh loag mujhe daalain ge 🙂

Editor’s Note: If I would have to summarize the clarification in one sentence, I would say that Asif Shiraz is trying to explain that telling a lie is a bad thing, but hiding truth is permissible in Islam. So Zaid Hamid and I myself never told a lie, all we were doing was hiding the truth in veiled and beautiful words.

Clarification By Ahmed Quraishi Regarding PKKH, Takmeel and Zaid Hamid

Dear Hesham Sahib,

Thank you for sharing this. Just a small but important correction:

This email by Mr. Asher Fawad was NOT sent to me.  I am not part of Takmeel or Wakup or any other project that Mr. Zaid Hamid and his teams are involved in.  Mr. Fawad sent this letter to PKKH team who launched Wakeup and Takmeel projects.  For some reason, Mr. Fawad copied me on the email. I don’t know him personally. One of my Web editors checking my mail posted it on my Fcebook page.

I hope you will place this clarification at an appropriate place in the published piece, or at least remove my name from this line : “This email was sent by Asher Fawad to Ahmed Quraishi, Dan Qayyum and other PKKH members.”
This line gives the false impression that somehow I am part of the ‘PKKH members’.

Keep up your good work.

It is important now to do some detoxification by telling our young people that working for Pakistan and Islam can be done without defending Mr. Hamid’s wrong position on Yusuf Kazzab.

Ahmed Quraishi

Islamabad, Pakistan.
