The Difference Between Acceptance and Belief

The Difference Between Acceptance and Belief

The message of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is divine love. It is not just a message; it is a full package which includes esoteric knowledge, divine esoteric methodology and then HDE Gohar Shahi’s esoteric supervision. One learns to enlighten the heart and spiritualise the character as per the spiritual philosophies of HDE Gohar Shahi under the blissful, auspicious and all-time supervision of HDE Gohar Shahi.

Spirituality as it has been explained by HDE Gohar Shahi, I believe is the purest form of spirituality. Nothing is exaggerated and nothing is lessened in its reality.

This world has witnessed not too many saints. Most of the saints who were sent into this world were not appointed as universal teachers. They lived within their own little world; most of the saints spent their lives in jungles. Those who returned to the world from the jungles, because they were not appointed as universal teachers by God, therefore they confined their teachings to a smaller group of disciples. People did not have first-hand experience of how a saint lives, behaves and conducts himself.

There is a trend in Pakistan. Sunni Muslims claim they are those who believe in the saints. And, apparently, there are thousands of people in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh who are self-proclaimed, fake saints. Most of these individuals come from the families of saints. For example, if there was a saint in a family some generations back, after that point, every child that is born in that family is [supposedly] a saint.

You are not going to be a saint just because your father is a saint. And you are not going to be deprived by God just because your father did not believe in God.

It is different. In spirituality, nothing is inherited. In spirituality, you are self-made. It is you; whatever it is, it is you. If you become a saint, you will become a saint because of what you have done. If you are a sinner, you are a sinner because of your bad deeds.

To Accept vs. To Believe

Spiritual terminology is connected to practical experiences. In our day-to-day life, the words that we use have a totally different meaning in spiritual terminology. The Christians say, ‘We believe in Jesus,’ and the Muslims say, ‘We believe in Mohammad and we believe in the saints.’ But they don’t know what it is to believe in the saints.

To accept is different from to believe.

With discussion and knowledge, you accept things that you did not accept when you did not have knowledge.

But because of the difference in terminology, people think that they believe in the saints. They do not believe in the saints; they accept them.

If you ask them, ‘How do you believe?’

They say, ‘Well, we heard that they are saints.’

That is not a valid answer to the question.

For example, if you say, ‘We eat Nihari (a curry),’ and I ask you, ‘How do you eat Nihari?’ you would respond by saying, ‘We bring it from a restaurant, pour it in our plates and we eat it with bread.’

‘That’s good. Now how do you believe in the saints? Have you met any saints?’

‘No, we heard about them.’

‘Alright. What do you know about them?’

‘They were great saints, they showed miracles.’

‘Is there any miracle of those saints that you have experienced in your life?’

‘No.’

Similarly, when people say that they believe in God, this is not believing; this is acceptance. People accept that there is a God. People accept that there was Jesus and Mohammad. To believe is different.

In order to believe, you have to be familiar with the powers, teachings – and with your own personal observation and experiences.

Is it enough to ‘believe in’ a saint, prophet or God? The meaning of to believe in in day-to-day life that people understand is [equivalent to saying] ‘I accept him.’ They do understand this difference. When they want to say, ‘I accept God,’ they say, ‘I believe in God.’

God said, ‘I am the total provider,’ so if you really believe in God, sit at home because God will provide food for you. You accept God; you don’t believe in God. Then how will you truly believe in God? With the help of the knowledge and teachings that God reveals upon messengers and prophets. When that knowledge enters your heart, you heart is enlightened and God’s light has entered your heart; that light of God in your heart will make a bridge between your heart and God. That is to believe in God.

When you actually start receiving the benevolence and spiritual grace through whatever source, then in that particular source, you begin to believe.

جشنِ ریاض 25 نومبر کو منایا جاتا ہے ۔ اور 25 نومبر ایسا مبارک دن ہے کہ اس دن ایک ایسا وجود مبارک آنکھوں کے سامنے ظاہر ہوا جس کو دنیا نے سمجھا ایک بچے کی پیدائش ہوئی ہے ۔حالانکہ وہ پیدائش نہیں تھی۔ آپ کی والدہ محترمہ جو سیدنا گوھر شاہی کی والدہ محترمہ کہلاتی ہیں ان سے جب اس بابت دریافت کیا گیا کہ سرکار سیدنا گوھر شاہی کے بابت کوئی خاص بات بتائیں جب آپ کی پیدائش ہوئی تو انہوں نے مسکراتے ہوئے فرمایا کہ مجھے ریاض نے قسم دی ہوئی ہے کہ اس راز سے میں پردہ نہیں اُٹھا سکتی ۔ تو پھر سرکار سیدنا گوھر شاہی سے اس بابت اجازت طلب کی کہ آپ اجازت دے دیں اس بارے میں کچھ دریافت کرنا چاہ رہے ہیں ۔ تو سرکار سیدنا گوھر شاہی نے فرمایا کہ ان کو تھوڑا بہت بتا دو ۔ اور پھر انہوں نے جو کچھ بتایا اس سے پتہ چلا کہ یہ بچہ دنیا کے اور نارمل بچوں کی طرح نہیں ہوا ۔صبح صادق کا وقت تھا کہ مجھے حضور ﷺ کا خواب میں دیدار ہوا اور انہوں نے مبارک بار دی اور پھر یہ بات بتا کر وہ رونے لگیں ۔ اور پھر روتے ہوئے بار بار یہی کہہ رہی تھیں کہ مجھے ریاض نے قسم دی ہوئی ہے اس لیے وہ الفاظ تو نہیں کہوں گی جو حضور نے مجھے کہے لیکن میں اتنا بتا دوں کہ اس کے بعد میں اُسی گہری نیند میں ہی تھی کہ بچے نے پاؤں باہر پسلی پرمارے ، تو اس پسلی پر مارنے کی وجہ سے میری آنکھ کھلی ۔ دیکھا تو یہ پہلو میں لیٹے ہوئے ہیں ۔
تو والدہ محترمہ نے بتایا جو انسانی پیدائش کے وقت معاملات ہوتے ہیں کوئی ایسی بات نہیں تھی ۔ پورا گھر ، پورا صحن خوشبوؤں سے معطر تھا اور بچہ پہلو میں موجود تھا۔اور دنیا والوں کے حساب سے وہی سمجھا گیا کہ بچہ پیدا ہو گیا ہے ۔لیکن والدہ محترمہ نے روتے ہوئے بتایا کہ یہ بچہ پیدا نہیں ہوا ، میرے ساتھ وہی روحانی واردات چل رہی ہے حضور ﷺ خواب میں آئے ہوئے ہیں اور وہ قسم دے رہے ہیں کہ اس کا کتنا خیال رکھنا ہے ، اسکا کتنا احترام رکھنا ہے ،یہ ایک بہت بڑا تحفہ تمہیں دے رہے ہیں۔اسطرح کی باتیں ہیں جو والدہ محترمہ نے کھولی نہیں کیونکہ ریاض نے قسم دی ہوئی ہے ۔وہ نہیں بتا سکتی کہ یہ کون ہے۔اس طرح سرکار کی آمد کا دن 25 نومبر قرار پایاہے۔
25 نومبر کو سرکار سیدنا گوھر شاہی کے جتنے بھی معتقدین ہیں اس دن کا ایک جشن مناتے ہیں جس کو ہم ’’جشنِ ریاض‘‘ کہتے ہیں ۔
