Have and has are helping verbs that form the present perfect tense. Look at these:

I have finished the report.

He has called her many times to pick up the report.

You have drawn a clear diagram.

Had is used as a helping verb to form the past perfect tense:

He had eaten three hotdogs before he dove into the pool.

You hadn’t finished the report when we arrived at your office.

Now, if you add some form of the verb BE (am, is are, was, were, be, being been) after these helping verbs (have, has, and had), you form a sentence in passive voice. That’s a sentence where the doer of the sentence is either not known or not expressed. The subject is acted upon, instead. An active voice sentence rewritten in passive voice doesn't always make the best sentence, but here they are anyhow:

The report has been finished.

She has been called many times to pick up the report.

A clear diagram has been drawn.

Three hot dogs had been eaten before he dove into the pool.

The report had not been finished when we arrived at your office.

What I've tried to illustrate is that have, has, and had form the present perfect and the past perfect tenses. The linking verbs (been, for example) convert the verb from active to passive voice.
