I don’t pay heed to what others are saying whom I don’t know very well my self. But we all believe the organization of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat is the most credible organization for such issues. And, therefore I will only refer to resource #1 and #2 against Zaid Hamid sahab. Similarly, I’ve searched a lot about the responses given by Zaid Hamid sahab, and I can’t find a better resource than #3 mentioned below. So, I will stick to these resources for my question.
- A report written by Maulana Saeed Ahmed Jalalpuri of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat.
- Speach of Yusuf Ali and Syed Zaid Zaman delivered in Bait e Raza Lahore. FLV Format & WMA Format.
- Zaid Hamid sahab’s reply obout this controversy.
Zaid sahab mentioned his believes when he wrote in reference #3:
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.
Thats one part, but, Zaid sahab clearly escapes Yusuf Kazab in the middle, the second part. Also check out his Exclusive interview at the same page with title “Zaid Hamid talks about the Yusuf Kazzab controversy – 3 minutes onwards”. He never mentioned Yusuf Kazab. I’ve also checked other interviews, Zaid Sahab never discuss Yusuf Kazab. Can Zaid Sahab repeat his own words mentioned above by only adding Yusuf Kazab name like below?
Curse of Allah, angels and momineen be on [liars like Yusuf Kazab,] who claim to be “prophets” after Sayyadna Khatim un Nabiyyeen Muhemmed Rasul Allah (saw). Also cursed and Rajeem are those who follow liar “prophets” [like Yusuf Kazab]
Why is this important? you may ask. It is important because why Zaid Hamid Sahab is refraining to comment on his past association with Yusuf Kazab? I don’t want him to “discuss” his past, just a simple statement like above. No one is angel here, human kind tends to do mistakes, but, when one repent and do Tauba, Allah The All Mighty is so grateful that He will inshaAllah forgive one's sin he did in the past. But, in case of false prophet hood, one have to be very “explicit” and one should declare in public that whatever he did before was his past and now he is no more associated with such a person and ideology. Specially if he is such a renowned personality like Zaid Hamid Sahab. And specially if he has so many followers and fan who believe Zaid Hamid Sahab spoke their hearts out. And specially if that person has played a key role to promote and work for that false prophet.
But, quite unfortunately, Zaid Hamid Sahab has failed to do this in a crystal clear way. I would agree to Maulana Saeed Ahmed Jalalpuri, its only a matter of small public statement either on his brasstacks website or on television or in newspaper that will “resolve the matter once and for all”. Is it some thing impossible? some up hill task? why? why Zaid Hamid Sahab is not able to speak or write a 3 or 4 lines statement about Yusuf Kazab (as mentioned above) when he is publishing content of thousands of lines daily?
This is what create confusions in my mind, and this is the reason why his fans and followers are confused. Can’t Zaid Hamid Sahab do this for the sake of us all? Is this some thing too much we are asking for?
