Fatwa: Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid

By Umer Sultan| Dignity is in adhering to the Qur’an and Sunnah, as understood by the Sahaba-the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad-the Seal of the Prophets.

As some of you may know, I have been following this cult of Zaid Hamid in Pakistan. I also posted twice on this subject at my blog (here and here last year), both of which were re-posted by the Zaid Hamid Exposition [ZHE] team at their website.

After more than a year of exposing and consolidating evidences against him by the ZHE Team, on November 30, 2011, the Ulema (Islamic Scholars) of Pakistan at Jamia Binoria, a well-known and leading Islamic Seminary, gave a detailed verdict (Fatwa) that Zaid Hamid, also known as Zaid Zaman Hamid, and those who follow him are outside the fold of Islam, hence ‘Kafir’ or dis-believers. Thus adding the word ‘Kazzab‘ meaning liar with Zaid Hamid’s name.

Those who can read Urdu, link to the detail verdict is given below. I will talk about it soon in shaa Allah (God willing) but let me give a brief history on Zaid Zaman Hamid-Kazzab.

Who is Zaid Hamid?

Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid-Kazzab

Zaid Hamid presents himself as a defense analyst, calls himself a Mujahid (claims to participate in the Jihad against Soviet Union in Afghanistan), calls himself Aashiq-e-Rusool (having immense love for Prophet Muhammad), and is known for dropping war mongering rhetoric against India and American forces in Afghanistan. He has repeatedly said that the Khilafah needs to be established in Pakistan (something that Ulema-Islamic Scholars never preach).

He is always seen in public with a red hat of a soldier, and often in military jacket. He is eloquent and mesmerizing, hence was shooting to his fame last year when few unknown Continue reading

Islam Hijacked & People Brain Washed: In the name of Sufism!

Islam is very simple religion (religion in the non-traditional meaning) and has very simple and clear believes. The problem comes when it the noble teachings of Islam is mixed with customs and traditions of the culture, and when that takes precedence over the teachings brought by the Seal of the Prophethood Muhammad ibn Abdullah (May Allah have mercy on him).   

Below are the freeky pictures from the practises of some mystic (sufi) order Rifai in Jordan that I just received, where they have adopted some major body piercing as a way to celebrate the birth of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad SAW.   

Oh My Lord, We seek your guidance

 

1st] I am not a scholar in Islam but I know that this is clearly against the teaching of Islam!!! Islam infact condemns hurting oneself, for example hitting or beating oneself, or cutting parts of one’s own body (& others) let alone this kind of body piercing! [Oh Allah show us all guidance Ameen]

Taqwiyat-ul-Iman by Shah Ismail Shaheed: A Must Read Book for every Muslim

By Umer Sultan

Tawheed, which can be loosley translated as Monotheism or specifically as Islamic Monotheism is the concrete base of the Building of Islam. It is the first article of Faith in Islam, and it is this message that Allah sent the chain of Prophets from Adam to Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon all of them.

Today, associating partners with God has become a normal practise, a culture established by traditions. The very message that the Seal of the Prophethood, Muhammad ibn Abdullah was sent by God, seems to be lost in practise. A lot has been written on this after the era of Great Imams. For before that it was common sense, but now the common sense is Shirk- unfortunately. People are labeled with innovative or derogatory words to people who defend the first pillar of Islam- Tawheed.  Unfortunately, these accusers and label stampers are Muslims themselves.

Taqwiyat-ul-Iman (Strenghtening of the Faith) was written by one of the great scholars of Indian Subcontinent- Shah Ismail Shaheed.  Shah Ismail was a grandson of Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Ad-Dehlavi.  After Sheikh-ul-Islam Imam Ibn Taymiyya and Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab, Shah Ismail’s Taqwiyat-ul-Iman is a MUST READ for every Muslim Lay men and women. After I read this book, I came to find out some faults in my own belief. Shirk that are so common because of the custom and tradition and lack of knowledge, one never gives a second thought about one’s own believes and practices.

Ignorance will not be an excuse in front of Allah, and understanding the basics of Islam is an obligation upon every Muslim- male or female, young or old. Tawheed is the base of the Shahadah– the first Pillar of Islam, and if that is lacking in a Muslim, then prayers and fasting, Zakah and Hajj is all useless.  Moreover, how can anyone claim to believe in something about which one has no knowledge about! This is a very serious issue, that is largely ignored!

In this book you will find evidences from the Holy Quran and Ahadith-e-Nabwi for every claim. Refusing to believe in Tawheed and by bogus labeling Shah Ismail Shaheed as a “Deobandi” “Wahabi” or “Salafi” is a grave injustice to Islam.

Taqwiyat-ul-Iman can be read online here in English. It can be bought online in USA here and in Europe or Britain here.

May Allah giver guidance to every one and show us Siratul Mustaqeen. Ameen.
