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.

Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 7: Emotional Sanity
12th July 2017|Articles

Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 7: Emotional Sanity

Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 7: Emotional Sanity

Editor’s note: the following is the seventh lesson in Younus AlGohar’s course on Self-Awareness, Level 2: Emotional Intelligence.

For better background information, read Self-Awareness, Level 1, in the Messiah Herald.

Read Self-Awareness, Level 2, Lesson 6 here.

Having studied different cases relating to our intellectual well-being and welfare, the findings have astoundingly surprised me. I conclude that the human brain is so vulnerable to becoming prey to different situations where emotions play their part, and our emotional sanity is badly affected.

What happens to our mental welfare when we strive and long for certain things but don’t get them? A sense of deprivation prevails on the surface of our emotional river. What transpires in a human brain when a person has access to all luxuries and comforts in the world?

The Sense of Achievement and Sense of Deprivation

Let’s suppose a child asks his or her parents to buy an expensive toy. Some parents are financially well-off and have so much love for their child that they buy that expensive toy for their child.

Having acquired that toy, what transpires in the faculty of the child’s emotions? What possible emotional aftermath could occur when the child’s desire is fulfilled? He must have gotten a sense of achievement.

In comparison to the child who acquired the toy of his or her desire, let’s talk about a child who had a similar desire but his or her parents were not able to afford that toy. As a result, there was a sense of deprivation felt by the child.

We have to closely monitor these two senses. What would be the impact of these two different senses on these two different children?

If this is just a single incident, whereby the child did not receive the toy from his or her parents, and when another toy is desired, it is given to the child, that initial sense of deprivation would become null and void. For the child who did acquire the expensive toy, the sense of achievement would have created this notion in his or her brain that anything is reachable. He or she begins to think, ‘I just need to say it for it to be done.’ This is where the imbalance in your emotional state occurs. 

The Duty of a Parent

Once the child acquired what he or she desired, now is the time for that sense of achievement to become null and void. Next time when the child asks for even a small toy, don’t give it to him or her. By doing this, you are actually securing his or her emotional well-being. The sense of achievement the child had developed when he or she acquired the expensive toy will go down the drain when another desired toy is not given to him or her. Their emotional sanity is restored.

If you had refused to buy a toy for your child, the sense of deprivation would strike on his or her mind; what you should do is to buy your child the toy they ask for next time, even if it is inexpensive. If you don’t do that, the sense of deprivation will have taken root in the child’s brain which is not good for his or her emotional sanity.

The sense of achievement and deprivation both go hand in hand. They are parallel to each other.

When a child is sick, the doctors tell you to give the child paracetamol – and, in intervals, give them ibuprofen. Similarly, fulfil one desire of the child and say no to the other.

Say no to one toy and say yes to the other. If you keep saying yes every time the child wishes to get something, you are actually destroying your child. If you keep saying no every time, because you think, ‘I do not have means, how can I buy anything for my child?’ this is detrimental to your child’s mental health. Even if you have to borrow some money, get your child the toy because you will be doing it for the sake of the welfare and wellbeing their emotional state.

The same goes for the adults. If you try and every time you try, you fail, this is going to have a very bad impact on your emotional sanity. 

When I was in Pakistan, a friend of mine asked me to go to China with him. So we went to the Chinese embassy. He got the visa but I was refused. Then we made a plan to visit Bangladesh. We applied for a visa. He got the visa but I was refused. I was beginning to wonder, ‘Why? What’s wrong with me?’ I didn’t really realise what was going on. Then a few months later, I applied for the British visa. When I was entering the UK embassy in Islamabad, I was so nervous and paranoid; my heart was galloping like a horse. I was denied the visa once again. At this point, my emotional sanity was disturbed.

Then, I applied for the Indian visa and I got it. You can’t imagine how happy I was! I had broken the shackles – I was on the no-go list and suddenly I got a visa. My emotional rationality and sanity was being restored. Getting the visa was one thing, but the aftermath implications of having or not having the visa was another.  If I have the visa, I will have a sense of achievement, if I don’t have it, I will have a sense of deprivation. Both are aftermath impacts. I was relieved and it restored my emotional condition.

For example, every day in your business, you are losing £1000. Suddenly, one day, you make £500. You will be amazingly happy because the losing streak has stopped. That change will make you happy – not because of the monetary benefit, but because of your emotional well-being. The sense of deprivation will be gone. The sense of achievement, when you needed it, will restore your emotional sanity.

What Affects The Emotional State?

We are living in a jungle of different types of emotions. Every action and deed is directly linked with an emotion.

Every action and deed, whether it is your deed or somebody else’s, is going to have some effect on your emotional state. For example, if you see somebody is helping the needy ones, you will have positive emotions for that person. If someone is beating up somebody for no reason and is being abusive, you will have negative emotions for them.

Everything we do will have an impact on the emotional sanity of people around us. You are the one who will make positive or negative emotions in the hearts of other people.

What you do will shape up emotions of people for you. This is the reason why some people fake what they do in order to earn positive emotions from others. In the eyes of people, they do certain things and everybody praises them but behind the scenes, something else is going on.

If the schools, colleges and universities are full, you should not expect anybody to be ignorant but even then the world is full of ignorance. Similarly, when the mosques, churches, temples and synagogues are full of worshippers, why is the world bad?

When these people are in the worship places, they are good; when they come out, they change. If they were genuinely worshipping God, they would have changed. This world would have changed.

Are You Emotionally Intelligent?

It’s not just your actions. What you say is also directly linked with emotions. When you say something nice, it will please many hearts. One nasty word from you will trouble so many hearts. People will develop a sense of hatred because they cannot deny what they see and hear.

No matter what you do behind the scenes, what you do in front of people is the only thing that will create negative or positive emotions in their hearts.

People have negative emotions for you because of your bad deeds and words. People love you and praise you because of your good deeds and morality. The way you give people respect and the way you conduct yourself [will generate positive emotions in their hearts for you]. You are not emotionally intelligent if you do not realise this.

Some wounds that are caused by weapons heal quickly, but the wounds done to your heart verbally stay on the soul forever and are never healed. Make sure you are very careful with your mouth. With this one piece of meat between your jaws, you create problems for yourself.

Everything is live. People change their mind every second. You could do good things all your life and just do one bad thing will make people change their mind about you. Be careful. Nobody is your enemy. You yourself are either your friend or enemy. When you become carefree and think, ‘I will do what I want to do,’ you are actually making people hate you. You think you are powerful and you got away with what you said, but people will hate you because you are exposing yourself. If you are incapable of doing any goodness, stay the way you are, but do not fake it.

We are all closely linked to each other. Our lives are very much dependent on each other. You cannot live a solitary life. Our happiness is very much dependent on others. Emotions are the backbone of your social life. What you say and do will definitely create some kind of emotions in your heart as well as in the heart of others.

Conflict of Emotions

Do you realise that in the moment in time when you feel a sense of achievement ,somebody in front of you is touching upon the sense of deprivation?

There is a conflict of emotions between you and that person, which will create jealousy.

Day in and day out, we only care about ourselves and we hurt others. When we do this, even our family members are emotionally millions of miles away from our hearts. Sometimes we do it and we are responsible for creating this rift and sometimes they are responsible. How can you have a good relationship when emotionally you are falling apart? 

Now is the time for us to be emotionally and spiritually intelligent. We should know what it is that is good for us and what is bad for us.

In order to have a good relationship, you want to make sure that your emotions are aligned and you do what you can to create an emotional bond [with those around you]. When you do not have an emotional bond, how can you have a love bond? It is not just our own emotions – we should also be concerned about the emotions of those who live around us.

A good spiritual man is one who only begets positive emotions, who does not beget negative emotions and who does not cause any other person to beget negative emotions.

Food For Thought

Do we care about the effect of what we do and say on the people who live with us? Or the people that we are dealing with in our day-to-day lives? We also must monitor ourselves and ensure that anything we say does not affect anybody’s emotional sanity or cause them to create negative emotions in their hearts.

On the other hand, if you are doing or saying the right thing – for the benefit of humanity –  and it hurts somebody, then it is not your problem. This is because they do not care about humanity; the truth is hurting them because they care about their ego. If they did not care about their ego and actually cared about the humanity, then the truth would make them happy. Always say the right thing [no matter what].

#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion?

The following is Younus AlGohar’s reply to a question posed by a viewer during his daily live speeches on AlRa TV. You can tune in and ask Younus AlGohar questions every day at 10:00 PM UK time on the AlRa TV YouTube channel.

The Religion of God means that it is God’s religion. If you think it is a new religion, it must mean that God is also new. However, God is not new. It is the same God who sent Adam, Moses, Abraham, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammad.

Moses was influenced by The Religion of God and created a religion for mankind; Jesus was influenced by The Religion of God and created a religion for mankind. How can you claim that The Religion of God is a new religion?

The Religion of God and the Koran

It is written in the Koran, ‘O’ Prophet Mohammad, a day will come when you will see big chunks of human beings entering into The Religion of God.’ [Koran 110:2]

At another point, it says: ‘O’ Prophet, when The Religion of God is established in the world, then turn your face towards it because it is the religion of the future. All other religions will be wiped out but the majority of human beings are unaware of this.’ [Koran 30:30]

The majority of people don’t know that The Religion of God has to be established; Muslims think that Islam has been established and that’s the end of the story. If somebody is under the impression that Islam is the last religion and it will remain forever, they should know that Islam is not The Religion of God; it was established by Prophet Mohammad. According to the Koran, The Religion of God is greater than Islam.

The Koran instructed Prophet Mohammad to turn his face towards The Religion of God because it would be the religion of the future. The Koran was revealed when Islam had already been established. So Islam could not be The Religion of God that the Koran referred to.

The problem with clerics of Islam is that when they are proven wrong, they say, ‘That is not what that particular verse of the Koran actually means.’ Why don’t they use their common sense? Otherwise, they should say that Islam will be established in the future and that’s when Prophet Mohammad will turn his face towards it.

Do you think that Prophet Mohammad spent 23 years propagating Islam and even then, he didn’t manage to establish the religion? Do you think Prophet Mohammad’s face wasn’t already towards Islam when Koran 30:30 was revealed? That is like saying that the religion of Islam did not exist these verses of the Koran were revealed and that it would be made in the future. How ridiculous!

The clerics can confuse the common Muslims, but they cannot make a fool out of a learned man. I have read the Koran and different interpretations. My message to clerics is to stop misguiding the Muslim nation. Do not say ridiculous things which can cause Muslims to be further divided.

#AskYounusAlGohar – What is the Purpose of Fasting?
24th June 2017|Articles

#AskYounusAlGohar – What is the Purpose of Fasting?

#AskYounusAlGohar – What is the Purpose of Fasting?

Fasting is a struggle to purify your Carnal Self. To refrain from eating is just one aspect of fasting.

The purpose of fasting is to reduce the intake of Negative Energy (Naar) and increase the intake of Divine Energy (Noor).

Negative Energy enters your body at all times while you breathe. However when we eat, we obtain a lot [more] Negative Energy. So in a fast, you stop eating for 15-16 hours to stop the Carnal Self from obtaining its diet of Negative Energy. When a person gets ill, he stops eating; but in order to get well, you still have to take medicine. During a fast, different types of worship such as Taraweeh and Salat are all ways to increase Divine Energy in you.

Fasting was prescribed to Christians also. It was something which had been made a religious obligation upon many nations before Islam. You are trying to weaken your Carnal Self, which is the source of all evil in your body. However, keeping yourself away from consumption of food is just one very tiny element of inner purification.

During fasting, you refrain from consumption of all foods, but at the same time, you must be able to replace that Negative Energy with Divine Energy so that your Carnal Self becomes purified.

Therefore to practise fasting effectively, one has to be enlightened in the heart. One’s heart must be articulated with God’s name; one’s heart must have learnt the art of producing Divine Energy.

If your heart is still not open and you are fasting, the job is only half done. Since the job is only half done, it is not going to benefit you in any way.

You will feel like you’ve taken some depression tablets when you fast. You’ll feel like you have calmed down. That is all you will get by the half job. If you continue to practise fasting without an enlightened heart, it is not going to benefit you at all.

As a result, you can see we are in the holy month of Ramadan. However, those ‘Muslims’ especially who do not get tired proclaiming that they are the purest of all Muslims – instead of purifying themselves, they are busy in human slaughter. They’re carrying out an organised butchery of mankind. Had their hearts and thought processes been purified; had their inner selves been purged, they would not even want to harm a tiny insect.

I am explaining the spiritual mechanism of fasting. Fasting in one sentence is to cut down on the intake of Negative Energy and increase the intake of Divine Energy. This is only possible when your heart is enlightened and has learned the art of producing Divine Energy.

Those who take every aspect of the religion as a ritual don’t dig beyond that ritualistic understanding. They are just wasting their time. Their practice of any ritual is futile – a complete waste. You can see the results. There are over a billion Muslims all over the world. But to be honest with you, even with the education they have, practically speaking, they are the farthest from any moral or religious values. They are those who don’t even know what ethical values are. Their religiosity is based on blindfoldedly practised rituals.

These rituals will only benefit you when you have learnt to effectively receive the spiritual benefits of that practice. Therefore any religious practice today in the absence of spirituality is a complete waste of time and energy. The result is null and void. Simple as that.

#AskYounusAlGohar – How Do Inanimate Objects Communicate?

#AskYounusAlGohar – How Do Inanimate Objects Communicate?

#AskYounusAlGohar – How Do Inanimate Objects Communicate?

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer on YouTube live.

It is through the Subtlety of Akhfah (Arcane) that human beings can speak and through the Subtlety of Ana that they can see, but when the body dies the subtleties are wasted in the grave. You will not be granted new subtleties in paradise because the subtleties were given to human beings in the world as a test. God wanted to see if you would utilise these subtleties. This is a method but do not think this method is definite because the trees and animals don’t possess the Subtlety of Akhfah, however, God is Absolute Power and he can make any creature – animate or inanimate – do as he pleases.

When the human soul comes into the world and enters the body, it is in a dormant state. But when it goes back it is not in a dormant state. After spending time in this world, the soul will not be given a small body in paradise. The bodies there will be substantial and the same soul will be placed inside the new body, in accordance with its accountability. Those new bodies will never burn nor perish.

The reason for the ageing process in the world is resistance;  then everything we eat is foreign to us because we were made from the clay in heaven. There is a lot of filth, which causes wear and tear on the body. However, there is no such thing in paradise. Everything there is in liquid form, even apples don’t have any texture. There are no solid things; hence, the bodies don’t go through exertion.

You might have heard stories that somebody who never spoke English before fell asleep one night and woke up speaking in English or somebody who lived in England all their life suddenly woke up with an American accent – these things do happen. God does show his Divine Power from time to time. The mechanism of speaking in the world is different to the mechanism in paradise; do not apply the rules of this world to the rules of paradise.

God said: I have Absolute Power over everything.  Koran [5:120]

This is the reason why there are incidents whereby stones and animals speak. Prophet Mohammad’s staff used to converse with him; animals used to converse with him. However, this method of communication is different.

If you lived in the era of Prophet Mohammad, you might think the animals conversed with him in the Arabic language and you’d be able to hear the conversation. But the animals, sticks and stones did not converse in this manner; whatever they wanted to say would come onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad.  

I used to think the same but once I was sitting on a sofa somewhere and all of the sudden my hands and feet began to itch. I had the same thought echoing in my mind over and over again that somebody has done something wrong on this sofa. I was disturbed; I didn’t know why this thought was echoing in my mind. I was perplexed. Then, after a few years, I was some place else, sitting on a bus and another thought began echoing in my mind repeatedly that somebody was stabbed here. When this started happening frequently, I became concerned and I asked His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi what was happening to me.

HDE Gohar Shahi explained, ‘These inanimate objects are conversing with you but you think they are just your thoughts. These things are actually speaking to you.’

 Allama Iqbal said: If God granted you the friendship of nature; you’d be able to converse with the flowers.

This does not mean that you will be able to stand before a tree and ask it to tell you a story and you will hear the tree replying. Whenever inanimate objects converse with you, it will come onto your heart.

In order to be a verified recipient of this type of communication, you must be a Qalb-e-Shaheed (The Witnessing Heart). Otherwise, you may think things are communicating with you, but really they are your own thoughts.

When these communications come onto the Qalb-e-Shaheed, if they are evil thoughts they will be expelled, and if they are divine thoughts the production of Divine Light will increase. However, if the thoughts are neither expelled nor increase the Divine Light it simply means it is the communication from inanimate objects. If a tree is conversing with you, the script coming onto your heart will not be divine, would it? It will just be a thought. There will be no Divine Light in it because inanimate objects do not possess Divine light.

Now, the image of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi on the Moon can also communicate with people and the method of communication is the same: you ask your question in your heart and the answer will also be revealed onto your heart. This is how this method of communication is carried out.

Can the United Kingdom Take a Bold Step to Combat Terrorism?
29th May 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Can the United Kingdom Take a Bold Step to Combat Terrorism?

In the wake of a deadly terrorist attack in Manchester on Monday, I would like to explain how to help the authorities identify the criminals, the terrorists and their terrorist cells.

The problem is, their worship places have turned into their terrorist cells. Politically, it is a mosque. According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, everybody should be allowed to practise their respective faiths.

So a mosque is actually a safe haven for terrorists who are doing all sorts of planning and training in the mosques. However, the governments in Europe have shown a great deal of resilience. This resilience is not the result of any prejudice or fear. Rather, this resilience is the result of the intentions of the authorities to keep people of all cultures united in the country.

When an Islamist terrorist carries out an atrocity, he kills himself along with 20–100 people. This act of atrocity brings calamity upon all non-violent, pragmatic, progressive, moderate, liberal, law-abiding citizens. All Muslims are then treated with the same attitude.

One problem is how to tackle Wahhabis and how to shut down their mosques. Politically, it is not possible. Muslims will go against this decision. I have thought a lot about it and I have come with this understanding that there is, in the Quran 9:107, a solution for the British government.

The Story in the Quran

In Medina, there was a mosque called Quba. Prophet Mohammad advised all to visit that mosque and offer prayers there. Some people did apparently become Muslims, however, their intentions were different — they didn’t like Prophet Mohammad and didn’t want to respect him. So next to Quba Mosque, their built another mosque which is known as Dirar Mosque.

The hypocrites gave an excuse for why they were not willing to offer prayers in the Quba mosque. They said, ‘People used to tie up their donkeys in the place Quba Mosque is built. It is a dirty place.’

Somehow or other, the Prophet was informed that they built Dirar Mosque. Prophet Mohammad was very kind and lenient. He was never impulsive. He didn’t like fights or arguments. So when Prophet Mohammad was informed about this new mosque, he approved of it. He said, ‘Ok, no problem.’ Then, Prophet Mohammad decided to visit that mosque. When he was about to visit Dirar Mosque, revelation from God came, stopping him from going there.

Twelve hypocrites were behind the construction of this mosque and they were in contact with somebody in Mecca who was a dedicated enemy of Prophet Mohammad and Islam. In order to support him, they offered him Dirar Mosque. Their understanding was to bring a great loss to the Muslim Nation in Medina and defeat Prophet Mohammad. On top of that, of course, they wanted to make divisions in Islam.

So God stopped Prophet Mohammad from going to the Dirar Mosque. At the same time, God commanded them to demolish the mosque. The mosque was set on fire and demolished.

This is the reference from the Quran for the British or American authorities to understand and use. Call a meeting with all Muslim scholars and leaders. Tell them: a mosque was designed to bring the Muslim Nation to a loss, to hurt and harm the Muslim Nation and make divisions within Islam. Even though Prophet Mohammad was so lenient and he didn’t care, God stopped him from going there.

God commanded Prophet Mohammad to demolish Dirar Mosque.

Now, mosques which are funded by Saudi Arabia propagate and project Wahhabism, Saudi fanaticism and extremism. They are [targeting] vulnerable youth and people of different religions in the UK, USA and other European countries.

These Wahhabis are bringing a great loss to the Muslim nation. They are earning a bad name of Islam; Islam doesn’t allow terrorism. God sent Prophet Mohammad as divine mercy. This divine mercy in the form of Prophet Mohammad was meant to benefit all humanity. So these Wahhabis have actually destroyed Islam.

Not all Muslims are terrorists. You will only find terrorists who come from the Wahhabi background. They are making divisions in Islam. They are bringing a great loss to the Muslim Nation. Their intentions are bad.

When a mosque can be demolished upon the decree of God in Medina, why can you not destroy a mosque in London? When it is clear these mosques are not mosques?

Dirar Mosque in Medina appeared to be a mosque, but God did not approve of it. Therefore, all these mosques that are promoting terrorism are not considered to be mosques in the eyes of Islam.

The authorities should take a bold step and destroy these terrorist mosques wherever they can. This is coming from the Quran, it is not my point of view.

#ManchesterAttack – Are We Doing Enough?
25th May 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

#ManchesterAttack – Are We Doing Enough?

After every terrorist attack whereby innocent lives are lost and the threat level is raised, everybody gets down to their computer desks and sends messages of condolences. They pray for people. This is not going to help and it is not enough.

Identify the problem. The first step toward any prevention is to identify your enemy; identify the criminal.

We feel a bit relaxed when we are told that ISIS is in Iraq and Syria and they are more than 2000 miles away from our homes. We must not forget that ISIS is just an organisation; it is nothing in itself. The main thing is the ideology behind all these terrorist organisations who are shedding blood every day: Wahhabism.

When such a terrorist attack takes place, the entire Muslim community has to suffer the backlash and repercussions after it. Every Muslim is suspected to be a terrorist. [The terrorists] are making every Muslim’s life difficult.

Islam does not teach terrorism or violence.

According to the Koran 5:32, ‘Killing one human being is equal to killing the entire humanity.’ Suicide is also strictly prohibited in Islam.

Who could understand more than the founder of Islam, Prophet Mohammad? There was a companion of the Prophet Mohammad who was fighting against non-believers. During this battle, he was severely wounded and Prophet Mohammad was showing all sorts of sympathies for him. Later on, he was in so much pain that he was not able to bear it. So, he took a decision that destroyed him: he killed himself.

When the news was brought to Prophet Mohammad, Prophet Mohammad said, ‘I am not going to say prayers [for] him; he has lost his faith. I deprive him of my salvation.’ This is how detestable an act of suicide bombing is in Islam.

Those who think they know Islam, I ask them to study the Koran and Prophet Mohammad’s life well. Prophet Mohammad did not hurt or hate anybody; he was sent into this world as blessings for the entire humanity [Koran 21:107].

There was a Jewish woman who used to throw rubbish upon Prophet Mohammad every time he would pass by her area. Prophet Mohammad did not change his way and he continued to go through the same area. One day, when Prophet Mohammad was passing by her house, she wasn’t there. Prophet Mohammad got worried and asked somebody, ‘Where is that woman who throws rubbish on me?’ They replied, ‘She is not feeling well.’ Prophet Mohammad went to her house and asked her, ‘How are you feeling? I was waiting for you.’ She cried and said, ‘You care about me so much even though I used to throw rubbish on you?’ Then she accepted Islam.

Islam was accepted because of Prophet Mohammad’s character. What [terrorists] are projecting to the world under the banner of Islam is not Islam; it is a bunch of lies.

Islam is not a killer religion. No matter what religion people practise — no matter whether or not they believe in God — you have no authority to kill them according to Islam.

There is a Day of Judgment when God will judge people and God will decide their fate. You cannot decide for them, because you yourself are a sinner.

Those who [kill others in the name of Islam] are enemies of humanity and Islam. According to the Koran, you cannot do such things.

All these individuals who project Wahhabism must be stopped in order to protect the country and peace-loving, law-abiding citizens of the country.

We detest any act of terrorism. Whether it is carried out under a political agenda or is religiously motivated, it is not acceptable under any circumstances.

We are raising awareness of love, peace, human value and divine values. Our hearts go out to the families of victims who lost their lives in the Manchester Attack.

To Islamists:

Whether people were singing and dancing, this is between them and God. You cannot decide for them; you have no authority. Don’t forget that God can forgive anybody; he is not going to ask you whether or not he should forgive somebody.

Don’t think Christians and Jews are Mushrikeen (polytheists). Mushrikeen are those who find a partner with God. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are Abrahamic, monotheistic faiths. They believe in one God; those who believe in one God cannot be called Mushrikeen. They believe in God and order for them to reach God, God sent them a messenger. Jesus was the messenger for Christians; Moses and Abraham were messengers for the Jews. Whether or not they have amended their books, this is between them and God. God will decide what to do; you have no authority to take anybody’s life. Those who do this are only bringing calamity and should await the torment from God.

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘You cannot be a Momin (true believer) if your neighbour goes to bed without food.’

If you don’t care about your neighbour and he sleeps without food, you are stripped of your faith. [Instead of giving them food] you are killing them — and you think you are a Momin. You are taking their lives and you still think you will enter Paradise?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Can You Convince Me Intellectually to Believe in HDE Gohar Shahi?
25th May 2017|Articles

#AskYounusAlGohar – Can You Convince Me Intellectually to Believe in HDE Gohar Shahi?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Can You Convince Me Intellectually to Believe in HDE Gohar Shahi?

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer on YouTube live.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi does not cater for your intellectuality. HDE is more concerned about your spirituality – about enlightenment of the soul and purgation of your Carnal Self. HDE Gohar Shahi estimates the possibilities of whether or not God will allow you into his friendship.

Secondly, I do not want to convince anybody to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi.

The reason why I don’t want to convince anybody to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi is that only seekers will find the truth. The truth does not beg anybody. I would hate to convince you.

There is a proverb in Persian, ‘True fragrance makes its presence felt.’ You don’t want somebody to tell you, ‘It is fragrance.’

We’re talking about HDE Gohar Shahi. While we’re talking about HDE Gohar Shahi, HDE Gohar Shahi’s name will attract the aspiring hearts and souls. If HDE Gohar Shahi’s name doesn’t interest the heart and soul of anybody, then it is useless for them.

I do not convince anybody, I would hate to do it. However, there is a book written by HDE Gohar Shahi, it is called The Religion of God (Divine Love). Go through every word of this book and you’ll find out what the score is.

HDE Gohar Shahi has nothing to do with intellectuality. Why would I give you a reason to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi other than what HDE has come here for? HDE has come here to enlighten our hearts and souls, and to purge our Carnal Selves.

The Difference Between Intellect and Intelligence

Secondly, you cannot understand or know God with intellect. Intellect is blindness, nothing else. If you would talk about intelligence, I would reply differently.

There is a difference between intelligence and intellect. You need intellect for your mundane life; however, now we’re talking about God, not this phenomenal world. In order to understand God, what you need is an enlightened heart. According to the Koran, the power of comprehension is granted to a heart when that heart is enlightened. [22:46]

Go through every single word of the Koran and tell me: can you understand God with your intellect? The answer is no. You need an enlightened heart. Then comes superior intelligence than that of the intellect you have in your head.

Intelligence is discerning and intuitive; it is not learnt, it is granted by God.

With your intellect, you can understand things relating to your life and this universe, however, God cannot be understood; actions and acts of God cannot be comprehended with the help for the intellect.

You need the enlightenment of the heart which will then initiate into that divine intelligence; this will be granted to your heart.

Q: How can the heart be granted intelligence when the heart doesn’t think?

I advised you to study The Religion of God (Divine Love) by HDE Gohar Shahi [which has answers to this question]. This sentence that you just wrote simply suggests to me that you are pretty naive to the concept of spirituality. You do not know what heart, in particular, I am referring to.

There is a fleshy heart which pumps and oxygenates the blood. This is not the heart I am talking about. I am talking about the heart which is like a soul, an angel; it is sitting on top of the fleshy heart. The fleshy heart is just housing it. That spiritual being which sits on the heart is in a dormant state. When this is activated and brought back to life through a spiritual guide, with the help of whom the spiritual heart is rejuvenated, then that heart thinks. That heart is granted intelligence.

Bear in mind this philosophy is not my own concocted philosophy. This is coming from the Koran: the power of comprehension is granted to the hearts. Moula Ali, Data Ali Hajwari and Khwaja all read the same Koran. You and I are reading the same Koran. Every other Muslim in Muslim and non-Muslim countries, who are scattered into many different denotations are reading the same Koran. How come Ali had a different understanding of the Koran? It is nothing to do with intellectuality. It is to do with spiritual intelligence which is granted to the hearts when the hearts are purified and activated.

According to this knowledge of spirituality, the heart can become enlightened once the seed of the name of God is implanted in the heart. The heart is articulated with God’s name and thus this creates divine light.

New Video: Younus AlGohar Ka Ilm Kahan Se Aata Hai? | By Younus AlGohar

Younus AlGohar gives a detailed account of where the spiritual teachings and special knowledge come from.

Main Points:

- The knowledge dispensed is not learnt or studied from any book. This knowledge comes from His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi spiritually directly onto the heart. Therefore, every time a question is asked, the heart gives the answer.

- His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi once said to me that He dispensed the entire Koran into my heart. Due to this my heart would constantly recite the Koran throughout the day. However, along with the recitation of the Koran comes the explanations, understanding, Divine Light and the Divine creatures attached with the chapters of the Koran.

- The spiritual mechanism for speaking: a designated soul within human beings called Akhfah enables speech. Those who do not know about the Spiritual knowledge fail to understand how man becomes a mouthpiece for God; it is the Akhfah which comes under the influence of God thus God speaks through man.

- Every thought that comes to the mind will travel to the heart before it is manifested into speech by the tongue. If the heart is enlightened, that thought will render Divine Light. If the heart has the presence of the Devil, it will spread negativity no matter what. And these are the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

- I tell people to gain a spiritual connection with HDE Gohar Shahi because once you are under the merciful sight of His Divine Eminence your world will change forever.
