In my earlier post, I put forward a question to Zaid Hamid Sahab, to which I got two replies:
One via Dan Qayyum given below, which was originally a detailed reply by Zaid Hamid Sahab to a SIMILAR question. I then seek permission from Dan Qayyum to publish this reply “as it is” without making any changes and he permitted me to do so.

subject: Fw: ZH / Yusuf controversy
below is a reply from ZH to another email on the same question
aa and dua.
First of all Jazak Allah for writing to me directly for the clarificationand following the Sunnah and Sharia way of resolving confusing issues. Though I have responded to allegations and clarified my positions many times on Khatm Nubuwwat, I do feel to write to you in some detail. Just for your record, I am repeating one brief reply.
”Alhamdolillah, all my life has been spent keeping my self under tests and trials of fire, sword and blood for the sake of this deen and in love of Rasul Allah. My prayers, sacrifices, my life and death remains for Allah and His Prophet (saw). My izzat, life, parents, property, family and even good deeds are sacrificed on Rasul Allah. I am not mad to follow false prophets after Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw).
Those with noor can see the rehma, baraka and khair from Allah and love of Rasul Allah in the life and mission of this humble faqeer. Hasbu nallah Naimul Wakeel, Naimul Maula wa naimun Naseer.
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”
Alhamdolillah, for the last two weeks, we were in Haramain Shareefain and also spent about a week in Masjid nabwai shareef presenting my case to Allah and His Prophet (saw). I am indeed hurt. Not at the fact that I am being opposed. In fact I am pleased at this. I am being opposed by Kafir banking systems, Indan assets, hostile secret services, media cartels, government proxies, religious and sectarian terrorists, and all those with whom Allah and Rasul Allah has declared war against ie: Riba based system of Dajjal. They have already tried to silence me by trying to buy me out. When that did
not work, they started a massive slander and Bohtan campaign from secular english to “Islamic” media. Now we at Brasstacks are loosing clients and our economic noose is being tightened to put pressure upon us. Now I am waiting when they make a physical attack. Hasbunallah !!!
Alhamdolillah, I am happy and say shukar at this as this humble faqeer has hurt and dented the system of Dajjal globally and given hope to this nation in these times of trial and tribulations. When I opted and decided to tread this path of Jihad and sacrifice at a very young age, I never expected it to be bed of roses. It never has been, by Allah.
But I am hurt because now I am being accused of betraying the very sacred soul who remains the centre of gravity of my soul, life, love, death and honor — Sayyadna Muhemmed Rasul Allah Sallalla Alaihe wassalam. But then, this time in Medina, I received the serenity and peace that inshallah, this matter will be handled by Allah himself and I need not scoop to lowest of levels or counter attack to lower levels to which these accusers have sunk themselves. I have clarified my position as above. From the requirements of Sharia, Sunnat and law, this should suffice for any Muslim to explain his Imaan and beliefs. beyond this, I strongly urge people to come and visit me and seek further clarifications. Things are not as they are being projected. There is also another side of the story which they are not telling. But it cannot be discussed on e-mailing matches and blogs with such characterless and unreliable characters because it involves sharia documents, legal doctrines, legal proof and Fatwas and statements of top religious scholars, council of Islamic ideology and serious papers on abuse of blasphemy laws in the country, sectarian wars abusing the law and its complex legal and Islamic remedies. you will be shocked once you know the facts on how they are lying from their teeth.
Let me sit face to face with the accusers and By Allah I shall confront them on all counts in the presence of anyone who wants to sit and be the judge. This is what sharia demands. I am NOT supposed to respond to shadows on the wall who are simply accusing without fulfilling sharia requirements. Also, it must be decided what should be the punishments for all those who have violated every sacred law and accused me of bohtan without verifications. Already so much of their lies are exposed. isn’t this enough to prove that they are liars??? Again, why we ignore the hadees of Sayyadna Rasul Allah that anyone who propagates hearsay without verifying is a liar !!! By Allah, they are liars and slandering a Bohtan only. It is a heavy burden they carry in dunya and indeed it would be heavier on day of judgment. I will NOT make personal attacks on them nor scoop to their levels. Let them do what they want.
I will add only a few more points to answer your questions and to complete the hujjat: details on personal meeting inshallah. For now this should suffice.
I am NOT a follower of that idiot Yusuf. May Allah’s curse upon those who accuse me of following him. But you should also try to study his case. Did he really claim to be a Prophet? what did Maulana Sattar Niazi and dozens of scholars say in writing about Yusuf? what is the sessions court judgment on his conviction ? is he sentenced to death on claim of prophet hood or something else? who were the witnesses whose evidence was used? Were sharia and sunnah requirements were fulfilled in the sessions court ? Why no religious scholar appeared in the court to testify against him? What was the
judgment of council of Islamic ideology after this case verdict? why no media group projected the case except Khabrain and Takbeer ? In fact, Nawai Waqt and nation defended Yusuf by publishing statements of top scholars defending yusuf ????? Was that a case of blasphemy or money disputes and sectarian warfare??? You MUST find this out.
I work, live and inshallah will die only for Allah and Sayyadna Muhemmed Rasul Allah alone. I don’t work for any agency or secret group or cult, astaghfurullah.
Life of every Muslim is sacred and cannot be taken on suspicion. Property of every Muslim of sacred and cannot be violated on suspicion. honor of every Muslim is sacred and cannot be violated without fulfilling requirements of Sharia and deen. The last sermon of Rasul Allah equates life, property and honor with sacred day of Hajj and sacred city of Makka. It is most unfortunate that those calling themselves as Muslims violate each and every basic tenant of Islam by involving themselves in utter and absolute Haram without any proof, sharia requirements or verifications. If we believe in Allah and Rasul Allah and fear the day of judgment, then we
should be very very careful when a Muslim is accused of being a Kafir or murtid or doing his Takfir.. This is greatest of sins.
Isn’t this strange that none of the accusers who write these articles seek any clarification from me nor have met me, nor know me, nor know nor willing to listen to any explanations. they keep coming back with pen names, e-mail names, refusing to listen to any clarifications nor accepting my invitation for a face to face debate ? what are they afraid of ? I left Karachi in 1992 and have never met any of these accusers ever since, if ever. most of them I don’t even know. Have they given any proof of any allegations or still it is just hearsay or stories of “personal” experiences so factually wrong and lies that it is nauseating.
All my life has been spent on razor edge for the sake of Allah and Rasul Allah (saw), risking and sacrificing everything that is considered precious in this world for the sake of Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw) and this deen. I was 22 years old when I went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviets when a life of worldly promise and brilliant career awaited me in Dunya. Spent six year in battle fields, surviving on daily basis, with my parents, wife, kids and loved ones not knowing in which valley my grave would be. I did not do all that for money, sense of adventure or to serve any secret service. By Allah it was and it still is for Allah, Rasul Allah and this Ummat e marhoom. When I came out after six years, i had to struggle on daily basis once again to feed and support my family. Jihad was NOT a paying venture. We spend from our own pockets or given most minor wazeefa of few hundred rupees per month by the jihadi commander we fought along with.
My present work of BrassTacks and its Azaan is also with the same junoon and ‘dewangi”. It is Not for money or to serve any secret agenda. We have done over 70 programs. Apart from being anything against Islam, Quran or sunnah, these are highly subtle, sublime and sophisticated essence of deen and khair reviving the Ummah and nation and attacking the entire exis of Kufr and Dajjal. Cant we see the baraka and khair which Allah is giving to this mission and its message.
My dear brother, in these times of fitnas, we need to be careful with people, I agree. But we should also be careful that we don’t shoot down the only message of dignity, honor and hope which has come out for this nation to fight and confront those who have declared war on Allah and Sayyadna Rasul Allah (saw). By Allah, I can say with confidence that those fighting against us are either Nadan dost or Dana dushman. By trying to destroy us, they only serve Zionists, bankers, Indians and our enemies of Pakistan and Ummah.
May Allah be our guide and be my witness in what I have written. He is my Wakeel and I rest my case with Him alone.
Jazak Allah once again and duago
The second reply was from Maryam Mehboob, she also CC’ed her reply to Brasstacks. She quotes a reply of Zaid Hamid Sahab in response to my question. I’ve emailed her back seeking the permission to publish that reply “as it is” without making any changes in original reply on my blog. I haven’t got any response yet, so I am sorry you’ll have to wait, until I got permission.
UPDATE: Got permission. Read my post containing second reply.
