Are You Crazy?

Are You Crazy?

Sanity and insanity have to do with one’s thought process. Sanity is considered to be a balanced thought process according to the standards of ethical values and norms of the society.

Anything practised by a majority of people for an extended period of time, at a certain stage, it becomes normal. Normal is something that everyone likes and practises. Something that people, as a majority, do not practise, is considered to be abnormal.

If every single person in the world is crazy, then being crazy is normal.

For example, if every member of the nation speaks loudly — and they scream and shout — and they consider it normal, what can you say?

So sanity and insanity can be described, however, there has to be a societal, spiritual or intellectual mirror in which you can judge the norms of sanity.

Sometimes normal things, according to your common sense, appear to be abnormal in the eyes of others who have different standards of ethical and moral values.

Learn more about how the different sources of moral values affect our worldview in the May edition of the Messiah Herald: Save Society with EQ.

In the country where I was born, if somebody is naked and walking on the street, people will call him a mad person. However, in Europe it has become a fashion; [some] people are demanding to be allowed to walk around nude. There are restaurants in Central London where the diners eat naked. They’re all well-educated people; even then, they do not think that if everybody is naked, it will create a chaotic hygienic problem. I really don’t like this idea, but then again, so what? If somebody else wants to be naked, I don’t care; it is their life and they have the right to live it as they want.

So we don’t really know what is sanity and insanity anymore, because people have different standards nowadays.

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

You will rarely see a guy who wants to love God. Most religious people do only talk about Paradise and its damsels.

Seeking union with God or love of God is a thing of mythology for a majority of religious people. Most religious people don’t buy the notion of God’s love.

If you closely and delicately examine the difference between luxuries of the world and the Paradise, it’s just a matter of quality; their nature is the same. How can those be pure in the heart who ignore God and only seek their own pleasure?

According to the Koran 41:31, ‘There you will find in Paradise everything that a Nafs (Carnal Self) aches for.’ Paradise does not contain the pleasure of love.

When God created human beings for the reason that God may be known and may be loved, then why do humans go after the pleasure and comforts of Paradise? Paradise has nothing else to offer but the pleasures to the Carnal Self.

What a distraction! What a mirage.

His Divine Eminence Ra Gohar Shahi is calling the nations of the world through God’s love and mutual human love. His Divine Eminence is inviting humanity to enslave their evil nature and embrace love — a divine attribute.

Wahhabism Exposed: The Ugly Truth
20th August 2017|Articles

Wahhabism Exposed: The Ugly Truth

Wahhabism Exposed: The Ugly Truth

People in the world do not know everything about WahhabismI lived in a country where I have seen the rise of Wahhabism. Initially, I was under the impression that Wahhabism is yet another denomination in Islam. There are many sects in Islam like Shiite, Sunni, Ahle Hadith, Tauheedi and Zikri, who confine themselves to the religiosity of their denomination. They have no other motive or agenda — especially not of ruling the world.

The first time I thought of going into the depth of the Wahhabi mindset and philosophy was only after false cases of blasphemy against Islam, blasphemy against Prophet Mohammad and blasphemy against the Koran were instigated against His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi in Pakistan. All these false cases were instigated by individuals who hold high offices in organisations that practise, promote and sponsor Wahhabism.

I went into the depth; I was literally horrified and terrified by my findings. I couldn’t imagine how dangerous to humanity Wahhabism can be.

Muslims who live in Pakistan have but very little knowledge of their religion.When it comes to knowing Wahhabism, their knowledge is very limited, superficial and religious. The most they will know is the difference between Barelvis and Wahhabis in terms of the creed system.

For example, Wahhabis do not approve of saints. They do not approve of visiting graves of the saints. Wahhabis do not approve of sending benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad; they do not celebrate Prophet Mohammad’s (the founder of Islam) birthday. Wahhabis do not approve of any festivity within the religion. Wahhabis do not believe in seeking any sort of intermediary or mediumship. They do not even believe in the potential salvation that a sinner expects to find through Prophet Mohammad. They do not believe in man becoming holy. They do not believe in any sort of knowledge pertaining to the souls. They believe nothing is mystical. They believe there is no other knowledge for except what they read in the Koran which they hold in their hands, which consists of 30 parts.

This is the most a Muslim in Pakistan will know of Wahhabism.

Wahhabis are very cunning. They’re more cunning than a fox, more deceiving than the Satan and meeker than a homeless person sitting on the pavement. However, they are more dangerous than the Devil.

What the world needs to understand today is the religiosity of the Wahhabi sect. They need to know the tenets of the Wahhabi sect and their culture. How do they cultivate minds of people?

It is so sad that Wahhabism found a sponsor a hundred years ago: Saudi Arabia. They say money can’t buy anything, but money is buying killers of humanity. 22 innocent people lost their lives in the Manchester Attack. Life has ended for them; even if a reward is given to their families, they are gone.

We are living in a hypocritical world where government and politicians have their vested interests. People who are in a position where they can really change the world have been limited by their political or religious agendas. Otherwise, combating and fighting against terrorism is not a very difficult task.

[In politics you have many problems and they’re all interconnected. If you do one thing, then you have to consider the repercussions in all aspect; you have to think about the aftermath of your actions and weigh the pros and cons]. These things muddle up and suffocate the brains of [people in the] security agencies.

Then again, you have to do what must be done in order to protect your citizens, freedom and way of life.

Wahhabis Through the Eyes of Islam

Yesterday, I said that there is a reference in the Koran which mandates Muslims and the governments to demolish any mosque which is not intended to seek God’s pleasure [but rather is] inviting God’s wrath.

[In a Wahhabi mosque], worshippers are indoctrinated with hate preaching and taught how to make bombs to kill as many people as possible. Do you think doing such things in a mosque will please God? Demolishing such a building — which some may call a mosque — [is not a crime].

Secondly, I am not asking members of the public to demolish it. I am asking the security agencies, the law enforcement agencies and the governments to do it. It is not about taking the law in your own hand.

There was a time in the era of Moula Ali (a Companion of Prophet Mohammad) when there were 10 000 Muslims with the same mentality as Wahhabis. They were hate-mongers who were spreading mischief in the name of Islam. Every one of them was misquoting Prophet Mohammad. Every one of them was giving a false, misleading interpretation of the Koran.

They were the ones who said, ‘On God’s land, we will only follow God’s command.’ Some people who are very cunning say things like this; God is not here, so they are basically trying to say that they will not follow anybody’s law.

To resolve this issue, Moula Ali fought with them and finished 5000 of them. The other 5000 repented. When they repented, Moula Ali sent them to Hassan Basri [a Sufi]. He said, ‘Go and learn Islam from him.’

When the Koran mandates the demolishment of a mosque, how can you go against it? When a mosque is not serving its purpose, rather it is spreading hatred, shedding blood, it is not a mosque anymore.

If any government demolishes such a mosque which promotes terrorism, [Muslims] should accept it because it is not doing what a mosque should be doing. A mosque is a place where you go and worship God; you do not hurt anybody.

Islam does not allow you to kill any human being; it equals the murder of a single man with the massacre of the entire humanity. However, let’s suppose someone goes to a mosque and his mind gets polluted listening to the lectures of the scholar there. Then, in the name of the religion of Islam, he carries out atrocities and kills innocent people. Will you consider such a person a ‘warrior of Islam’? No! He was a killer.

Every single true Muslim ought to disown such a philosophy and individuals who preach hatred and spread terror. If you do not disown them verbally, practically, physically and ideologically, then you are one of them.

The Tenets of Wahhabism:

  • They want to turn every single human being into a Wahhabi.
  • If you don’t, as a result of your denial, you will be killed. Your properties will be forfeited and your women will be taken as sex slaves.
  • They want to rule the world. No matter how many people they have to kill, they will not stop.

Some governments will have to stop them. If somebody is going to stop them, then that will be the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the United States of America and — do not be surprised — India too. They have to stop them. This will only happen when they understand the problem first. Saudi Arabia and Iran [are spreading mischief throughout the world. If they were to be taken care of, we would be much closer to world peace.]

Cricket & Spirituality

Cricket & Spirituality

Cricket is a game where every single delivery has to be played with individual planning and practice. In so many ways, cricket is very close to spirituality.

His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘In spirituality, only those are successful who never give up.’ In cricket, it is the same.

The game is on until the last delivery is bowled. Don’t ever think that you have given up too many wickets and now it is very easy for the other team to score and reach the total. Don’t give up and lose hope; this is not how you play cricket.

The match is decided on the final delivery, not before that. It changes suddenly. When it changes, then those who are really set on the crease keep stumbling; they do not succumb to falling wickets in quick succession.

You have to keep your morale high and you must be determined. You must be prepared not to give in anything.

The key point which you must remember in every game is that whenever you have aggression and anger, don’t shout, scream or quarrel.

Make sure that you don’t waste your aggression in any verbal or physical altercation. Let it remain inside you so you turn it into performance.

The Dangers of Self-Love

The Dangers of Self-Love

The Dangers of Self-Love

This article was originally published on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page. Learn more about self-love in the Messiah Herald: Save Society with EQ

Self-love will turn you into an animal. Divine love will make you a wonderful person.

Everybody has this natural admiration for oneself. It is natural, but there is a time and point when self-admiration goes to a new extreme. Then, it is so heightened and elevated that it becomes an illness.

When something is wrong with your physical organs, you detect that problem by virtue of spotting symptoms. However, not too many people pay attention on behavioural issues and cognitive issues. Spirituality has answers for all those problems.

Every form of love is intoxicating. Whether it is carnal love, monetary love, self-love or divine love, love is really addictive.

However, the most dangerous form of love is self-love. In self-love only, you harm and hurt others. You take their lives. You ruin their lives.

In divine love, in order to benefit humanity, you ruin your own life. You don’t hurt or harm anybody. If you see a hungry man, you deprive yourself of the food that is supposed to go in your stomach and give it to him. In order to help others, you give the breath you need to survive away to people. That is divine love.

Self-love is very easy and common. People don’t have to make efforts. They fall in love with themselves and they don’t even notice. There is a time when your spiritual faculties within you become blind to detect this very dangerous form of love.

An enlightened heart will never allow self-love to grow in it, because self-love is not just self-destructive — it is like a time bomb.

It will ruin friends and families. It will ruin countries. If you become a president and you suffer from the disease of self-love, you will ruin the country. If you are a powerful leader and you a sick man, and your sickness lies in self-love, maybe you will put the entire world at the brink of war.

Now is the time when we need to understand whether or not we are doing anything that might trigger self-admiration to the extreme or self-love. We have to be very careful. Self-love is unprofitable; it is only destructive.

Some ‘spiritualists’ underline the need for having self-love. They equal self-love with self-esteem. However, there is a very thin blue line between these two regimes.

Self-esteem is nowhere near self-admiration and self-love. Self-love is not healthy; it is not in the welfare of your spiritual being.

Self-love is very dangerous not just for yourself, but to those also who are around you.

Is the Koran the Most Authentic Celestial Book?
30th July 2017|Articles

Is the Koran the Most Authentic Celestial Book?

Is the Koran the Most Authentic Celestial Book?

The article was originally published on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page.

As a child, born and bred in a Muslim family in Pakistan, I had always been told that all the other celestial books have been gravely adulterated. We believed that the Bible and Torah were given to Messengers from God and they were the true word of God; however, subsequent to great modifications in those religions, these two books also were adulterated on a ridiculous scale.

As Muslims, we were always told to believe that the Koran is the most accurate book on the face of the world. At the same time, we were told to reject any remote possibility of doubting the authenticity of the book; this was because God Almighty himself had taken the responsibility of keeping the Koran protected. We always had this belief that the Koran cannot be adulterated, though we didn’t really know how.

Authenticity of God’s Word

As I grew up and I became a fortunate disciple of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, I began to understand that God’s word is God’s word. It does not lose its significance if God’s word was delivered to Jesus, Moses or Abraham. I also began to understand that the fact that the [Koran] was given to Prophet Mohammad does not increase its authenticity in comparison to the [Torah and Bible].

We cannot simply say that the celestial books [other than the Koran] are less accurate or insignificant — especially when we know that the Bible, Torah and Koran are God’s word. God’s word is authentic [no matter what prophet it is given to].

However, [as Muslims] we have always been very biased towards the Koran; we have always had this unexplainable reservation and ridiculous prejudice for the Torah and Bible. Unfortunately, adulteration has been the most common factor in all the celestial books. Having become a Sufi and having done comparative studies of religions, I noticed that Muslims still do not want to admit the Koran can be subjected to any adulteration. Somehow or other, it is not just possible for them to do so.

I do not want to offend or disorient anyone. However, I would like to sum up my experience, observation and theological analysis.

My findings are: even if the Koran has not been adulterated, the consequences are no lesser in fatality than that of the Bible or of the Torah. It is not about the words; it is about the meaning.

If the words are as accurate as they were at the time of revelation, but the meaning and understanding of the words have been subject to deception, the result is the same.

Let’s suppose the Koran is free of all doubts and the most authentic book on Earth from God. Does it benefit humanity or the Muslim nation?

If one medicine is adulterated and another is ‘pure’ — but neither of them works for you when you take them, then something is wrong with the pure medicine whether or not you want to accept it. If a patient who took the medicine died, [calling it pure is like refusing to accept] that the medicine killed a man.

If we assume that the Koran became more authentic — not because it was God’s word, but because it was revealed to a Muslim prophet — we would be giving significance to Prophet Mohammad [over] God.

The authenticity of the Koran lies not in it being revealed upon the heart of Prophet Mohammad, but because it is God’s word. If it is authentic, it is authentic because it was God’s word. [But then again, why do Muslims think that] God’s word which was revealed to Moses, Jesus or Abraham is not authentic?

The Nature of the Koran

Once upon a time, there were 73 sects in Islam, but today every single Muslim is an [authority on the religion]. The way people prioritise their opinion in relation to the priority given to Koran only suggests to me that Koran is somewhere in the background. What is more important to people is their own understanding.

Let’s not make an issue out of this; let’s just say that the Koran is very authentic. However, to paraphrase an Urdu proverb, ‘If you think the goat is still alive just because its eyes are wide open, you are gravely mistaken.’

The Koran is very authentic, but the Muslim nation is dead.

You need to understand human philosophy if you want to understand God. God said that he created you upon his own nature; so however corrupt you are, God is on the same page. However pure you may be, you cannot exceed God in purity; if you cannot exceed God in purity, then you cannot exceed God in corruption.

I have every reason to believe that God’s lousy attitude towards humanity has been the prime concern; it has played havoc.

He has been very careless and reckless with words. He just said whatever was dancing on the tips of his tongue. He created piles upon piles of doubts in the Koran.

To my understanding, I would get away if I decide to read a novel from Mills & Boons rather than studying the Koran. It wouldn’t pollute your heart on the same scale. God has subjected [the Koran] to a great deal of corruption and violence. There is nothing in Islamic history but blood. ‘An eye for an eye, an arm for an arm,’ if you follow this rule, everybody would be blind and be limping. However, contemporary Muslims have closed their eyes to reality.

The way the Koran was compiled by Companions of the Prophet has added to the [abundance of] problems that were in it. In the Chapter of Light, God is talking about menses and in the Chapter of Women, God is talking about light. If you read the Koran carefully, you will be completely dismayed and disappointed in God. He doesn’t finish one sentence before starting another.

If I am a holy water well and I give one man dirty water, another man pure water and yet another man blood, as I still the most authentic? [This is what the Koran does]. Every single recipient is dispensed different medicines from the Koran.

Muslims say, ‘The Koran is the most authentic book.’ Then why are they diversified to a degree where no more divisions can be made? Islam has been made subject to total mischief. It is not alive anymore — but God is.

This is why we are calling humanity through divine love. The nature of this divine love is based on His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s concept of love.

A Miraculous Incident in Islamabad, Pakistan

A Miraculous Incident in Islamabad, Pakistan

A Miraculous Incident in Islamabad, Pakistan

A viewer of Younus AlGohar’s live YouTube discourses from Islamabad, Pakistan, recently sent an email telling him about a miraculous incident he and his father experienced with the blessings of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. The following is his account.

Dear Beloved Mr Younus AlGohar,

I want to share with you what happened to me today.

I have conversed with my father about His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi in the past on many occasions. We had always engaged in meaningful discussion but we ended with no result. I believe in His Divine Eminence – as he is not only the Grand God and Imam Mehdi, but he is much bigger than anyone can understand his reality, his personality or even describe him in poetry!

My father believed that HDE Gohar Shahi is a good person, a saint, a wonderful philosopher and great thinker, but he didn’t believe that HDE Gohar Shahi is Imam Mehdi. I tried to convince him but to no avail.

Yesterday, I had a discussion with my father again. Unlike the past, this time I got angry at my father. I walked sadly far away from him. On this occasion, I said in my heart, ‘His Divine Eminence, please show my father who you are. Please forgive his ignorant words.’  

Today, my father got up to offer early morning prayers (Fajr). When he finished his prayer, he noticed that a comely face had manifested at the prostration place on the prayer mat – the place where he bows his head. It was the divine face of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi and he was smiling at my father. My father got confused and concentrated on the face. As he concentrated, he saw the face getting clearer and clearer. At that moment, he exclaimed, ‘Subhan Allah (Praise to God)!’

He jumped up from his place, ran to my room and woke me up. I came directly to him and asked him what happened. He said, ‘Come with me.’ He took me to his prayer room and showed me the place of prostration. He asked me, ‘What do you see?’ I looked, smiled and said to him, ‘First of all, tell me: what are you seeing?’

He said, ‘I am seeing a big beautiful face of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi smiling at me.’ I replied, ‘This is a direct and obvious sign from him for you to believe in him!’ He said, ‘Your grandeur is beyond imagination, HDE Gohar Shahi!’ He started to kiss the image and he said, ‘HDE Gohar Shahi, forgive me for I did not know about you.’

I am so happy that my father enrolled to HDE Gohar Shahi’s Lover’s Club. May HDE Gohar Shahi bless him with his love.

Thank you very much, dear sir.

Messiah Foundation UK at the Croydon PrideFest 2017!

Messiah Foundation UK at the Croydon PrideFest 2017!

Messiah Foundation International UK participated in this year’s Croydon PrideFest to show their support for the LGBT community. Our team had an amazing time! Many of our delegates took part in various activities such as face painting, dancing to the live music and much more.

The LGBT community has been marginalised from the society and is subjected to discrimination even today. However, we at Messiah Foundation do not care whether you are transgender, bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual or anything else. Our message caters for the souls, not the bodies! We simply love and respect humanity. Therefore, the Croydon PrideFest was a wonderful opportunity to introduce our message of love, peace and equality to members of the LGBT community.

More than 3000 festival-goers saw the Divine Signs and merciful images of HDE Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Jesus Christ. Our members held up banners near the entrance of Queens Gardens where the parade culminated. Over 100 copies of the Messiah Herald Magazine, a monthly publication by Messiah Foundation, were also distributed at the pride.

Mr Steve Reed, Croydon’s Labour MP, issued a statement in support of Messiah Foundation’s labour of love. Here is what he said:

‘We’re all minorities in this community, and we have to look out for each other. It’s good to see you all out here tonight and I am delighted to support you!’

Another festival-goer stated,

‘Wow, it’s great to see and hear something new and exciting. Your organisation is doing a wonderful job towards the betterment of our society!’

Overall, the festival was sensational. We will continue to participate in such events in the near future as we spread HDE Gohar Shahi’s message.

New Video: 12 Aima-e-Karam Aur Un Ke Batni Maratib | By Younus AlGohar

#AskYounusAlGohar - The 11 Imams have come and gone, who were the following spiritual dignitaries and who is the 12th Imam?

Younus AlGohar gives the chronological order of the spiritual system of Imam-hood and the enlightened progeny of Prophet Mohammad.

Main Points:

- The enlightened progeny of Prophet Mohammad carried on for 7 generations. From the 1st generation to the 7th, as they continued to marry into unenlightened people, the divine light remained albeit decreased. The 8th generation was completely void of Divine Light.

- There have been 11 Imams from the enlightened progeny. They all had two types of duties: physical and spiritual. The physical ranks of all the 11 Imams was given to the 12th Imam, Imam Abu Hanifa. And the spiritual ranks were reserved for Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani.

- Imam Abu Hanifa was titled Imam-e-Azam because of all the physical ranks he attained. And Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani was titled Ghous-e-Azam because of all the spiritual ranks he attained.
