Has the Creator of this World Always Existed?
30th November 2016|Articles

Has the Creator of this World Always Existed?

Has the Creator of this World Always Existed?

Note: the following is Younus AlGohar’s reply to a question from a viewer. It is answered with the understanding that the Person of God is separate from his status of being the creator of the universe. It is assumed that the reader already knows that God originates from the Unseen World. The reader should also be aware of the fact that in the Unseen World, the concept of time does not exist.

‘Has God, the Creator of this world, always existed?’ – Imran Mati

The moment this universe was created is the beginning of never-ending time. The beauty is, when we talk about eternity, it only refers to the future. Eternity doesn’t talk about the beginning.

God said, ‘I was in the hidden treasure and I loved to be known, therefore I created the universe and the entire system.’ The moment he came out from the hidden treasure is when ‘the beginning’ starts. Before he came out from it, there was no time.

We say that God is there since the beginning and he [will be] for an indefinite period of time. There is no time limit as to how long he will continue to be there.

When God was in the hidden treasure and he had no idea if, in the future, he would want to create a system and creatures – at that moment, he was not a creator because he had not created anything.

God became a creator the moment he created. According to the level of intellect that we have been bestowed upon by God, God didn’t qualify to have the status or title of a creator when he hadn’t created anything.

This particular issue that he hasn’t always been a creator elaborates the fact that there is a beginning. A duration is established and it is not infinity. He hasn’t been a creator for an indefinite period of time. Before that point of beginning, he wasn’t a creator.

The origin of God is pretty foreign to this universe. This is exactly what has been labeled as eternity. Nobody knows that he came from somewhere else. Before the creation of this universe, he existed.

The Occultation Day 27th Nov

The Occultation Day 27th Nov

The Occultation Day 27th Nov

15 years ago on 27th November 2001, Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi adopted occultation in accordance with the Divine Plan.

It wasn’t easy for the disciples to come to terms with this painful event. Most of them were not spiritually groomed enough to sense the implications of the occultation.

Those who had developed a firm belief in the Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and loved the Lord were potentially easy to be groomed into devout disciples.

When according to the Holy Quran, Jesus Christ was ascended by God towards Him, people who were at the scene were not given to witness the ascension of Jesus; rather they saw a look-alike of Jesus on the cross. They assumed it was Jesus who died on the cross.

A look-alike of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi was found in the room after the Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi adopted occultation. A majority of the followers failed to comprehend this divine phenomenon. As a result of this, the look-alike body was buried and a shrine was erected.

Only if the disciples truly believed in the Lord and His advice, they would have sailed through the test. The Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi had indicated on various occasions that He would adopt occultation at one point in time but advised the disciples not to jump to wrong conclusions. The Lord promised that He would break occultation and return soon to lead humanity to an unprecedented glory and spiritual triumph over evil.

In order to boost self-esteem of disciples and strengthen their faith, secrets of the Unseen World were presented and translated into belief. The secrets and origin of God were revealed and shared with common folks.

Messiah/Mehdi Foundation was formed to promulgate the miraculous doctrine of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Thousands of people were attracted to the teachings of the Lord. Many of these people embraced these secrets and became practitioners of divine love. Many of them still remain to be steadfast and some of them failed to grow in belief and trust.

Today we will discuss the aftermath of occultation. Please tune into AlRa TV’s YouTube Live at 22:00 BST on the 27th of November, 2016.

The Final Revolution
27th November 2016|Articles

The Final Revolution

The Final Revolution

Spirituality is accepted among all religions. However, every spiritual league of people seems to have a different perception about spirituality. Why do people who reject religions, adopt spirituality?

I have attended mind and body expos in many different countries of the world, including the USA, Canada, Holland, United Kingdom, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. I have met with thousands of people and spoken to many individuals who call themselves spiritualists.

The United States of America is a pioneer country in many fields. For example, there are many international American fast food chains such as KFC, TGI Fridays, Applebee’s, Chili’s and Pizza Hut. These companies made a fortune selling processed food.

American society got tired of eating processed foods. They grew bigger in size, so then [began] the trend of eating organic food. When they started getting bigger, they started exercising and thus gym goers began increasing in number.

Then spirituality was introduced and people fell for it. Many dozens of Hindu gurus came from India and they started to give lectures on spirituality. At the same time, they started to sell ‘spiritual’ products. For example, ‘Yogi Tea,’ which has nothing to do with yoga. A message was given by these spiritualists: for inner peace, peace of mind and relaxation, adopt spirituality. Yoga was declared to be a spiritual practice.

When I learnt about it, I was shocked. For the first time in my life, I was able to distinguish between this version of spirituality that I encountered in Edmonton, Canada. I sat down there in that expo booth and I wrote an article.

God is completely forgotten in this brand of spirituality. A deceptive concept has been hammered into the brains of innocent people in America. [They were told], ‘Your ego is your God. Take care of your ego and love yourself.’ There was no space for God.

I am not speaking in favour of any religion.

When Lord Jesus Christ publicly appears before everybody and wants a group of people to count on [to] go for Armageddon and defeat the Antichrist, will any of these spiritualists recognise and help Jesus?

I was shocked when Christians came to me and said, ‘We thought you were a spiritualist, but you are a religious man.’

I replied ‘How?’

They said, ‘You have the image of Lord Jesus Christ.’

I said, ‘So what?’

They said, ‘Jesus represents a religion, we don’t believe in any religion.’

I thought that there is a huge acceptance of spirituality among these people, but when I learnt what spirituality they have in mind, I was disturbed because with this concept of spirituality, they are not going to be able to love Jesus Christ.

With this brand of spirituality they will never seek God, let alone loving God.

The gurus who came from India have played havoc with the minds of people. Under the label of spirituality, there have been sexual scandals. It is not a secret anymore. Sexuality was labelled as spirituality.

When we started to tell people what spirituality really is, they were surprised to a degree where they were in a state of confusion [as to whether to believe us, or what they were told by the gurus from India].

We practise, propagate and project the purest form of spirituality.

We understand that, as the root word of spirituality is ‘spirit’, therefore, spirituality is to do with the awakening, enlightenment and purgation of the spirits.

Meditation is not about visualising a garden or visualising yourself flying. Meditation is a spiritual state in which your spirit is powerful enough to leave the body and make a spiritual journey; it is when it can successfully arrive at the realm where it belongs.

Upon these spiritual lines, one can be able to enter into the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is not a building or a city. The Kingdom of God is inside you. Your heart is the temple of God and this is where the Kingdom will be established. This is where the King will come and sit in your heart.

The Revolution of Love

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Towards the end times, the Sun will rise from the West.’

Like many other traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, the Muslims took it the wrong way. They are literally waiting for the Sun to rise from Seattle, USA, rather than Japan. This Prophetic Tradition is not about the [physical] Sun; it is about the Sun of God’s love, the Sun of spirituality — and it is rising!

The world has seen many different types of revolutions: communism, socialism, industrialism and capitalism. Now humanity is becoming weary of all these different types of slogans. Capitalism has manifested its ugliness and beauty. Communism has been rejected widely all over the world. Industrialism gave rise to capitalism, but the most horrible gift it gave was global warming [and pollution].

The world has seen all different types of revolutions and is now suffering in divisions. What humanity needs now is a final revolution: the revolution of love, the revolution of spirituality in which all the importance will be given to human beings.

With the help of science, we have gadgets such as iPhones and cameras. However, the ugliness of a human being remains the same.

Human beings have not progressed an inch. What we have worked on is our surroundings and the instruments we use.

Although we fly aeroplanes, we cannot fly. You combine Metal, gas and fuel and make an aeroplane that flies. However, you are greater than those ingredients you combined to make the aeroplane. You are a human being and you are the best of all creatures, so why can’t you fly?

You invented the telescope, but never worked on your eyes.

You have souls inside you, specially dedicated to improving your sight. With that improvement in your sight through spirituality, you won’t only be able to see the Moon or Mars, but you will be able to see God beyond this sky, the Milky Way, the realms and all these planets.

This is how far you can see with the help of the spiritual eye.

Now is the time to discover your obscure calibre. Now is the time to explore the divine potentials and credentials in you.

Explore yourself and know what capabilities have you been endowed by God. If you utilise all the spiritual potentials conferred onto you by God, you will understand one day that, ‘I am just a little lesser than God.’

You are in the State of Oblivion. You have ignored your own self and given more attention and importance to what is around you. What could you be if all the credentials God has conferred on you are utilised the right way? In order to do all this, we need a spiritual revolution.

This is why Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ have joined hands. Together, Lord Jesus and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will bring about this unprecedented, pioneering, rapturous, and amiable revolution of love.

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How does a seeker become heedless of God?

The Prophet Mohammad said, ‘When somebody sins, the angels record the sin in the book of deeds and at the same time, places a black spot on the heart. With abundance of sins, one day the heart turns all dark. At this stage, no advice is effective on the sinner.’

The companions of Prophet Mohammad asked,  ‘What should be done at this stage to remove darkness from the heart?’

He replied, ‘There is a means of cleansing for everything; whereas for the heart, it is Dhikr Allah (Invocation of God’s Name).’

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?
17th November 2016|Articles

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

‘Mr Younus, Elon Musk said that there is a chance that we are living in a computer simulation. Are we? And are there multiple universes?’ — Mir Shahmir

It is a very delicate point. The world or the universe itself is not simulated by a computer. However, with the help of computer science, we can do a lot of things.

In a sense, science and technology have advanced to a degree where you can do things which may appear to be a miracle.

For example, we now have test-tube babies. If a woman doesn’t want to marry or touch a man, but she wants a baby, [she can have it by in vitro fertilisation]. She could take sperm from a donor, which could be injected into her body. This is what people can do today.

Science has advanced to a degree now where scientists are trying to outclass God.

It is a proven fact: even in the past, whenever — with the help of science, technology and whatever knowledge they had — human beings tried to interfere with the acts of God, God destroyed them.

There is a story about ancient Greek people in the Holy Book, The Religion of God (Divine Love). God commanded Gabriel to go and destroy them by flooding, so they quickly made walls of glass. They were saved because they were able to hear God. So then God asked Gabriel to destroy them by stoning. The glass was broken by the stones and they were destroyed.

You can’t play smart with God because he has all the power.

This intellect you have reflects God’s intelligence. So you may conclude that whatever you think, God will think along the same line. What you have in your head as intellect, it reflects the divine intellect.

People are now trying to interfere with God and his acts.

For example, let’s talk about cloning. The thing is, scientists can do anything, but what about the soul inside it? Obviously, as a result of that cloning process, there will be a living being identical [to the original], and that living being will definitely have terrestrial souls. However, there will not be any celestial souls, which will mean that the clone will not have the same level of intelligence as [the original has].* It will be deprived of emotions — hatred, love and everything else. What is the use of producing such a thing which is incapable of many human traits?

People are trying to be smarter than God, however they can never be. God is a genius as compared to us. We think he is a genius because he can do things we cannot. It is not possible for someone created by God to be [smarter than him]; if you were created by God, God would not give you the same level of intelligence he possesses himself. If somebody has more intelligence than God has, then that somebody must be from the Unseen World.

The way His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals secrets pertaining to the creation of this universe, to the creation of humankind, to the different species of Adam, to the different levels of intellectuality and to the different levels of spirituality — it is mind-boggling.

Revealing upon human beings what has been kept hidden by God and then declaring them to be the most obscure secrets of God — this can only come from HDE Gohar Shahi.

By far, HDE Gohar Shahi has exhibited through His acts and practice of love that whatever level of intelligence He has exhibited is far greater than the core intelligence of God.

This universe is simulated by a computer to a certain degree. But if you become divine and enlightened, you move your fingers and you will move mountains.

Forget about computer simulation. When you become a humble servant of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, then you will simulate the world with your finger.

Multiple Universes

For the sake of answering your question, I will say, ‘Yes there are many different types of universe.’ But then again, you’re not able to practically go and witness it, so what is the point in discussing it? Unless you’re planning to apply to HDE Gohar Shahi to become His servant — because only then can you possibly witness existence of other types of universe.

We’re living on a single little planet, Earth, and we do not intend to explore every single planet that is floating in this universe. We have not been given the potential of migrating from one planet to another. Man set his foot on the Moon only after the Final Hour, when all the living beings on the Moon were destroyed by God. As long as people lived there, human beings who lived on this planet were not able to go and witness their counterparts [on the Moon].

We can only fly from Pakistan to India, India to Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka to America, Canada, Australia etc. We cannot possibly migrate from one planet to another, especially the planets which are currently inhabited by human beings like ourselves. The planet we are living on is not a secure place. Countries of this planet only think of their own safety. However [other] planets have been made secure but their inhabitants.

Migration from one universe to another is not physically possible for you. I am not saying that it is not physically possible at all; it is possible provided you have the means of travel and ability to switch from your type of oxygen to their type of oxygen. But you don’t have this facility and ability.

On this planet, water is made of two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. Maybe [on another planet], there are three molecules hydrogen with oxygen which forms water. The chemical equation of our water is H2O; maybe on Mars, it is H3O.

It is interesting that the Sun is the ultimate source of hydrogen; the Sun is shining on the seas and rivers. Even then, the water does not absorb more than two molecules of hydrogen from the sun-rays. This is because the oxygen of this world has only two ports of radicals; maybe oxygen [of another planet] is different and has four ports of radicals.

This universe is vast and it is such a shame that you cannot travel. Some people are born in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan; they live all their lives in those countries and they die. There are still some people in India and Pakistan haven’t seen a train, let alone traveling in an airplane. We live in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, etc. even then, I never imagined myself traveling in a spaceship and going to the Moon.

Hopping into other universes is least possible even to imagine. However [things change] when you are a disciple of HDE Gohar Shahi. Firstly, you do not become a disciple by simply saying that you want to or [paying a fee].

You become HDE Gohar Shahi’s disciple when your soul is infused with HDE Gohar Shahi and you become a citizen of the extra-celestial Unseen World. That is the culmination of all that exists. When you reach the culmination of all that exists today, then migrating from one universe to another is child’s play.

When you reach the culmination of the farthest place that can exist — something you can’t even imagine — then migration from one universe to another is not a problem. Right now, you are caged by gravitational force. As a result of gravity, you can’t go anywhere. Speed is the resistance against gravity. You apply force and power; then you [move]. What happens when you go into space? There is no gravity; [so if] you don’t apply force, you just float.

Let me just end it on this note: it is possible to simulate the universe partially with the help of a [scientifically advanced] computer, but it would not be a full throttle simulation. Secondly, there are different types of universe — but then, seeing is believing. I can tell you many things, but if you’re not able to witness it, it is like fiction to you.

If you become worthy spiritually, you can travel from one universe to another. However, do not forget: the Quran has mentioned that whatever is between the skies and earth belongs to God; so God is only talking about this universe. It will [probably] never happen — but for the sake of answering your question, if you happen to set your foot in another universe, do not forget that that universe has a different creator.

Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of India, not the entire world. The United Kingdom has a different Prime Minister. When you go to Canada, they have a different Prime Minister. When you set your foot in another universe, you’ll have to find out who its creator is.

There are different types of universe but all these different planets in this universe were created by God. Quran 4:131 states, ‘To God belongs whatever is between the land and skies.’ This is about this particular universe that we are living in.

*According to the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, a human being is a compound creature made up of multiple spirits. The body is made of terrestrial souls which are responsible for things like its growth and appearance. The terrestrial souls have nothing to do with the higher realms.

What makes humanity different from animals is the presence of the celestial souls in them, which bring in them human emotions and sense. The celestial souls are what give man the potential to discover divinity. Learn all about the celestial spirits in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Obedience to Parents According to the Quran – #AskYounusAlGohar
6th November 2016|Articles

Obedience to Parents According to the Quran – #AskYounusAlGohar

Obedience to Parents According to the Quran – #AskYounusAlGohar

The Quran stresses a lot on giving respect to both parents. In Muslim culture, this decree of God has – like every other verse in the culture – been misused. It has been misused enormously.

Giving due respect and care to your parents is not only your religious duty, but also your ethical obligation. They sacrifice a lot just to facilitate you with your requirements and so many other things in life.

You don’t have to convince yourself to respect your parents because it is natural. Everybody, I think, naturally gives respect to their parents.

However, when your character is ruined by your negative ailments and the most hidden evil in you, that negativity in your character will make you disobey your parents. Disobeying your parents is not the end of the world; you have something in you known as Nafs (the Carnal Self). It is the powerhouse of all evil and it is deeply rooted in you. The Nafs makes you disobey your Lord. It is not just parents that your Nafs makes you disobey.

In the broader prospect of the subject, the most importance is given to the Lord; parents come after the Lord. When your Nafs makes you disobey your Lord, then disobeying parents is a secondary issue.

How many religious people never sin? They all sin and disobey [God]. If you obey your parents, but you disobey God, will God be happy on Day of Judgement? It is not as if he will say, ‘You obeyed your parents, so it is okay if you disobeyed me.’ I know some people who say that they obeyed their parents. However they should look into their hearts and ask themselves: do they obey God? If you disobey God, then obeying your parents will not avail you anything on the Day of Judgement.

There is nobody in this world who is completely obedient to every single relation and obligation he should be obedient to.

Sometimes, you’re obedient to one and then at the same time, you’re disobedient to another who is of the same significance. You cannot be obedient to everybody; everybody has different interests so there is an enormous conflict of interests.

For example, if I am obedient to my mother and my obedience to my mother does not please my father – and in order to obey my father, I must disobey my mother – then I am in trouble. Sometimes you want to obey people but you cannot, simply because if you do, you will end up disobeying God. It is more important to obey God.

You cannot call that person a good person who obeys the parents, but disobeys God.

If there is a person who obeys the parents but disobeys God, it simply means that the parents also disobey God.

Otherwise they would have told their child, ‘What are you doing?’ If the parents are only concerned about their children being obedient to them, and the parents have no problem if their children are disobedient to God, you can understand how ‘divine’ the parents are.

Quran 17:23 [asks Muslims to respect their parents and treat them well.]

Only those parents misuse the verse from the Quran who are completely oblivion to God and who themselves are disobedient to God.

More important in my eyes is to be obedient to God. This obedience to God will automatically make you obey your parents.

So start from being obedient to God; then, obedience to parents is part and parcel of your obedience to God. If you are obedient to God and then you find out what the Quran says about your parents, then you will definitely be obedient to your parents. However, if you don’t want to know anything about God and you just pick up one verse from the Quran [asking children to be obedient to their parents] and impose it upon your children; and as a result of this, your children become obedient to you but are disobedient to and oblivion of God – neither will you end up pleasing God nor will they.

Remember that in the Quran, God is not addressing a common man. God is addressing the faithful ones (Momineen) who are obedient to God, whose hearts are enlightened. This verse is addressed to Momineen. These are the people who have found Sirat-e-Mustaqeem. Obviously, because they are enlightened and obedient to God, they will follow the instructions of God. I have seen people who recite the same verse of the Quran upon their children and say, ‘God is asking you to be obedient to me.’ However, the children never listen or obey because they are not obedient to God. If you are not obedient to God, will you regard anything that comes from God?

So if you want your children to be obedient to you, then you want to make sure that you are obedient to God, and your children are obedient to God.

Once your children are obedient to God, they will definitely be obedient to you. Parents who are not obedient to God have no right to ask their children to be obedient to them.

If you are disobedient to God, your obedience to your parents will be fake. You will only show off in front of them and behind their back, you will do everything you want to do. Behind their back, the veil of obedience is gone.

God is greater than parents. You cannot compare your parents with God. However, being obedient to parents is a gift of God when you are obedient to God. If you are disobedient to God, the parents should not keep their hopes high that you are going to be obedient to them. Understandably, if the parents are obedient to God, the first priority upon them will be that their children also should be obedient to God.

If parents don’t care whether their children are obedient to God or not as long as their children are obedient to them, it means they give more priority to themselves than they should give to God. We’re living in a very strange world. In this world, we say everything about God. But when it comes to importance, we want more importance  than our children should give to God.

The word ‘Islam’ is total submission but we see how Muslims have not submitted to God completely. Most Muslims are fully submitted to themselves; exclusively, they’re consumed with themselves.

One who is disobedient to God, that person cannot be obedient to anybody. If that person is faking to be obedient to somebody, it is very temporal.
