As salaam u alikum
Now a days as you may know that,  Zaid Zaman Hamid (who is the owner of Brass Tacks) are struggling for khilafa system in Pakistan.
I came to know that he (Zaid Zaman Hamid ) is same person who is the follower of yousaf ali kazab (who claimed to be a propohet Muhammad, Nauzubillah).
Based on above sitaution what are precautions that Muslim umma should need to take, Sould we struggle for khilafa just by following a person like Zaid Zaman Hamid ? or what
kind of advice which you could give to MUSLIM UMMA
I know this question is personally targeted some one (like Zaid Zaman Hamid), but you may also know that this is very important question for the whole young youth in Pakistan who wants islamic ways of life in Pakistan and now we all are looking towards our Ulama Karam (Muslim Scholars) in Pakistan that , how they respond to this fitna. May Allah guide us to the right path 
Please please reply me as soon as possible so that i can also inform others about it who is just blindly following Zaid Zaman Hamid
Waiting for your reply

Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

In the compilation of ahādīth a very large portion has been dedicated towards ابواب الفتن (Abwābul fitan) or كتاب الفتن (Kitābul fitan) where in the muhadithīn have narrated all those ahādīth which are related to the trials and tribulations. In these ahādith Nabi sallalāhu ῾alaihe wasallam has warned the ummah against all those events which will occur before Qiyāmah.

In كنزالعمال (Kanzul ῾ummāl) the most famous work of Allamah Ali Muttaqi rahimahullah, it has been narrated on the authority of Hazrat Abdullah ibn Mas῾ūd radiyallaho ῾anho,

“Be cautious of the company you join and how you obtain Ilm deen. Verily, towards the end of time the devils will disguise themselves into the form of men and they will say; “حدثنا and “ أخبرنا     therefore when you adopt someone’s  company then inquire about his name, his father’s  name and his lineage; so that you may pursue him in his absence.”

(kanzul ῾ummāl vol.10, pg.214, mo’assisātur risālah ) [1]

In the light of above hadīth we understand that it is very important to identify the person we seek our legal advice/guidance from, whether he is a reliable ῾ālim or not? where did he attained his knowledge? who are his teachers? This is because anyone quoting  اخبرنا” and “حدثنا” does not automatically qualify him to be a reliable ῾ālim. As Abdullah ibn Mubārak rahimahullah said very beautifully;

“The entire deen is based on the chain of narrators, had it not been for the isnād then every person will narrates that;  what he desires”.

(Muqaddimah muslim, vol.1, pg.12, Maktaba-e-thānvi Deoband) [2]

And Muhammad bin Sirīn rahimahullah has mentioned;

“Knowledge is the entire deen so beware who you obtain your deen from”.

(Muqaddimah muslim, vol.1, pg.11, Maktaba-e-thānvi Deoband) [3]
