Can Man Become God?
27th February 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Can Man Become God?

There are three monotheistic, Abrahamic religions: Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Sikhism is also a monotheistic religion – Ek Onkar (‘God is one’) is their logo found on every single Sikh temple.  

The oneness of God is the main theme of every religion which was founded by a Grand Messenger. The declarations of faith of Islam, Judaism and Christianity also point towards the oneness of God.  

Somehow or others, followers of Judaism managed to believe some of their Messengers were either God or Sons of God; still they practised monotheism. In Christianity, the belief that Jesus is the Son of God is the main theme, although it is also known to be a monotheistic religion.

You will find more emphasis laid on the oneness of God in Islam in comparison to Judaism and Christianity, although Judaism and Christianity are monotheistic religions and it is verified by the Koran.

Yet, some of the followers from the era of Prophet Mohammad to date [revered] some of the saints of God like they were, in fact, God.

Even in Pakistan, it became common for followers of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi to say ‘HDE Gohar Shahi is my God.’ It wasn’t a documented belief system nor was it considered to be a legitimate belief by a majority of think tanks within Anjuman Sarfaroshan-e-Islam (an organisation comprising followers of His Divine Eminence in Pakistan). However, some people continued to believe the fact that HDE Gohar Shahi is God.

On one occasion, while HDE Gohar Shahi was addressing a gathering in Pakistan, somebody stood up from the public and said, ‘I wanted to ask a question.’ HDE smiled and said, ‘Go on.’ He asked, ‘Some people in your circle say that you are God.’ How HDE replied was strange. HDE repeated the man’s words and said, ‘Are you saying some people say that I am God? Have you heard other people say, “He is a Devil”?’ The man said, ‘No.’

Then HDE explained, ‘If people say I am God, it doesn’t mean this is what I believe for myself. I never said that I am God.’  

If the Divine Law says that man can be God, then we can officially adopt this practice. Since there are different types of knowledge, even in Islam, you do not know what knowledge grants you what. I have gathered from the writings of many Sufis in different books that the minimum belief a disciple must have for his Spiritual Guide is that he must consider him to be God and he must treat him likewise; otherwise, attaining spiritual grace from him is like daydreaming. This was to be adopted as an attitude, but it has never been documented.  

The religious law (Sharia) is very strict in a sense that it doesn’t recognise inward faculties (Batin). Sharia will see you only as a human being; it doesn’t have any access to make an analysis of your inward faculties. Sharia is blind of spirituality, therefore no matter who you are talking about, Sharia applies one stereotype rule to all. Ask any Sharia master about calling a man God and he will say, ‘This is Shirk (appointing a partner with God).’

Ask yourself, ‘Can man be God?’ And you will say, ‘It is not possible.’

This is because we have always preserved the notion that God is almighty: he can do anything, he will not die and he doesn’t fall ill. He doesn’t need help from anybody; he doesn’t sleep or even yawn. This concept of God has been drilled into our heads [by religious scholars]. We cannot just assume a man can be God.  

What caused every monotheistic religion to have this problem that some of its followers managed to call a man God? Does it simply mean these individuals who developed the notion that man can be God went astray, had lack of knowledge or purposefully became prototypes of Satan?

In Islam, I have found that Sufis who were the great preachers of the oneness of God agreed to this notion that man can be God.

They were those who were delegated by God; they had spiritual authority, backing and support from God. Still they developed this notion among their followers that man can be known as God. This boggles the mind and the question arises: how come?

We find in the Koran that God will forgive any sins but Shirk. If having a notion of man becoming God was Shirk, then why should a person [who believed man can be God] have been a Saint of God bearing divine authority and spiritual power? He should have been a sinner and have received wrathful reaction from God. [Yet this is not what happened]. Nobody has the answer to this because nobody knows the truth.  

How can somebody be a Saint of God and agree to the notion that man can be God, while the Koran states God will not forgive the sin of Shirk?

It is very obvious that the physique of man has no value, therefore it cannot be God. Forget being God; your physical body cannot even be a Momin (enlightened believer). You become a Momin only when your spiritual faculties become involved in enlightenment. Your souls have the ability to absorb God’s light, [so] God can come inside your souls.

Prophet Mohammad said: ‘ The heart of a believer is the abode of God.’  

Your heart can be a divine abode which means God will live there. It is amazing how God works behind the scenes. Now, there is a banner that man cannot be God; behind the banner there is a knowledge according to which God will manifest through a human being. Such a person becomes like a cinema screen.

Young children think the characters on the cinema screen [are real and present in that moment]. In a similar way, when a man thoroughly cleanses his heart and it is wonderfully polished, it shines like a mirror. Then, God manifests himself in the mirror of the spiritual heart. Those who will look at that heart shall see God; they will point towards that heart and say, ‘He is God.’

You become a spiritual container of God, an outfit of God. For example, the t-shirt and pants I am wearing are not me. I am inside this outfit, but it is housing me. In a similar way, God will come inside your heart.

A human being has not become God, however the souls inside that human beings have absorbed the presence of God.

If this is Shirk, then how come God [enters people’s hearts]? This is the issue today.  

Wahhabis have been using this pretext that Sufis are heretics because they call their Spiritual Guides as God.  

Let me remind you of a Tradition of Prophet Mohammad in which he said, ‘One who has seen me, he has only seen God.’  

So if a disciple believes his Spiritual Guide to be God, do not jump to conclusions and do not declare him to be a heretic; because he is not saying that the body of his Spiritual Guide is God. He is referring to the presence of God in his heart.   

The Kaaba (the black cubicle in Mecca) has no value in comparison to Prophet Mohammad, however in order to model the teachings of Islam, Prophet Mohammad circumambulated it [as part of pilgrimage]. He was going around that black cubicle; at one point the Prophet Mohammad stopped and looked at the Kaaba and said, ‘O’ Kaaba, I am aware of your significance. However, the significance of a Momin’s heart is a thousand times greater than you.’  

Mevlana Rumi said, ‘If you have gained control of your heart, this is equivalent of performing Hajj-e-Akbar (The Great Pilgrimage).’ Such a heart which is enlightened and has God’s light in it, is greater than one thousand Kaabas.

This is not about every heart, but a heart of an enlightened believer. The Kaaba was erected by a friend of God (Abraham) whereas the heart is the passage of God.  

Wahhabis are not aware of this Islam because the only form of the religion they are aware of is the ritualistic form of Islam. If Islam is an orange, than Sharia is the skin of an orange. The orange inside is Batin (the esoteric aspect). If you are only eating the skin of an orange, it will taste bitter to you; based on this, you will say, ‘Oranges are bitter.’ Oranges are not bitter – you need to peel it and eat the orange which is inside.  

Now Wahhabis will say the above-mentioned Prophetic Traditions do not have enough authenticity. We know that because everything which reveals the existence of Batin lacks authenticity in the eyes of a Wahhabi Muslim.

The Wahhabi ideology is like a plague. It is full of hatred and based on loot and plunder. Their ideology is based on fanaticism and something worse than extremism. To a Wahhabi, all non-Wahhabi Muslims are considered to be polytheists. Abdul Wahhab Najadi gave them the authority [to kill non-Wahhabis, confiscate their properties and take their women as slaves].

Regarding himself, Prophet Mohammad said that he is light from God. [Maktoobaat Shareef Faarisee, Vol 3, p 191]

Wahhabis reject this saying. According to the Koran, you must have the light of God in your heart to be an enlightened believer. If the light of God doesn’t enter your heart, you are totally and explicitly misguided and misled in the eyes of God. Having light in the heart is a must to become a true devout believer. So how do they not consider Prophet Mohammad to be light? According to the Koran, God’s light is part of God. When it comes in you,  partially, God comes into your heart.  

God’s light is part of God and it is a must for every common follower to believe this.

‘They are devastated and destroyed, those whose hearts have become so hard that God’s name does not enter into them. And that is an explicit misguidance.’ [Koran 39:22]

Man cannot be God, but man can have God in him.  

It is a must for connection with God for you to absorb God’s light in your heart and souls. If you do not manage to do it, neither do you know God nor does God know you. You only become familiar with God once you have God’s light in your heart; there is no familiarity without it. When you have it, you have some portion of God in you because God’s light belongs to God and is part of God.

Can you separate an enlightened believer from God? It is his light in your heart that turns you into an enlightened believer. A true believer cannot be separated from God, let alone those individuals who become a divine mirror in which the disciples observe the splendour of God.

God can manifest his beauty and compassion upon any human being; he is not bound by any law.

He must manifest his beauty. For example, when you dress up nicely, don’t you want people to look at you? In a similar way, God wants to show himself off; otherwise nobody will know who God is and how handsome he is. He does manifest his beauty on a shiny mirror: an enlightened heart. An enlightened heart becomes so transparent that whoever comes in front of it will reflect in it, whether it is Prophet Mohammad or God.

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech, originally posted on his Medium page.

Sufism has been excluded from the mainstream religion of Islam by radical, intolerant and extremist Muslims of contemporary times. Sufism is yet another name for esoteric knowledge (spirituality) that deals in enlightenment, transformation and strengthening of your souls and auxiliary spirits.

It is such a folly for a human being to consider exclusion of spirituality from the religion, as human beings are compound creatures. Neither are we totally ethereal nor totally terrestrial; we are a combination of multiple sources.

In describing human beings, Moula Ali said, ‘O’ man, you perceive yourself to be very small but there in you is the entire universe. Your illness is within you and its remedy also is within you.’

There is everything in a human being. For example, stones, water, fire, wind, trees, leaves, animals, etc. Let’s jump to the angelic realm: we have angels in us and then greater, grand angels (Archangels). We have our own soul and then a potential capacity to accommodate God in us.

A perfect man is one who successfully manages to accommodate God inside him. Without God living in you, you are an incomplete human being.

You become a human being when God is included in you. This is a mighty statement. You are a perfect human being when God is an inhabitant inside you like yourself. This is spirituality.

Those who only focus and confine themselves to outward knowledge and the outward form of worship are practically rejecting the source of life; they are practically rejecting the real world.

The world that we are living in today is only for a brief sojourn. It is like a makeshift arrangement. Everybody knows about it, although they don’t care what it means. Where do we go after we die here and what is it that dies in us? Are we left with any other element of life after death, or do we become part of nothingness?

What dies in us is a deceptive form of life; this form of life did not exist before our entry into this world and it will not exist after our departure from this world. The eternal life belongs to your soul.

This is where people go wrong who try to understand His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and his teachings without the concept of spirituality. Spirituality is real knowledge; spirituality is what you really need, which is why HDE Gohar Shahi has laid an enormous amount of emphasis on acquiring spiritual expertise. This is the type of knowledge that will benefit you after your departure from this deceptive world.

There is another scenario quite common in this world today: people live a religious life as a Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jew etc. They spend most of their time in the worship places. They do every good thing stated in the Bible, Koran and Torah, but when they actually die, their souls are dormant. Their souls are naïve to God and enlightenment. When they go back into the world of spirits, they are as blank as they were when they were sent into this world. Their purpose is lost.

In the end, individuals whose focus is on outward religiosity are going to be suffering. They will be in possession of nothing. They will not be treated either as a true follower of Moses, Jesus or Prophet Mohammad [by God].

Your purpose upon entry into this world is to enlighten your soul and give it the nourishment of God’s light. With the strength of God’s light, you are given to perform a spiritual journey to arrive at your destiny, which has been recorded in the book of your fate.

Since you are spending your time in mosques, churches, temples and synagogues without realising you are not doing enough to awaken your soul, [your time spent is] wasted. This is why His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has laid all the emphasis on enlightenment of the soul.

It is the soul which will enable you to know God. It is the soul which will enable you to have the divine understanding of love.

Without enlightenment of the soul, you are naïve to the most sacred and most ancient emotion of God: love. You cannot comprehend the manifestation of true love because your soul is dormant and you are not using the inner faculties of life.

This knowledge of spirituality was the base in every religion and the core of every religion. It began with the introduction of a new and the last Adam (Adam the Eminent One) from God.

Every time a Grand Messenger was sent by God into this world, he was equipped with both types of knowledge: outward and inner. Each Grand Messenger was very open to talk about the outward knowledge; however, there were some hurdles or perhaps some unspoken spiritual incapacity of the people he was sent into [due to which he didn’t boldly speak about spirituality].

In the first era of every Grand Messenger, most people did suffer from the disease of spiritual incapacity. They didn’t possess the power of comprehension of such obscure knowledge. This happened every time every Grand Messenger was sent. Some Grand Messengers spent all their time in trying to establish their religion. For example, when Moses went to Mount of Sinai to speak to God, upon his return, [people] reverted to their previous religion; they made a gold cow and [started worshipping] it again. So the Grand Messengers were kept busy; they didn’t have enough time to explain to their followers what spirituality was. Nevertheless, with the time they had — in whatever era they were appointed by God — they broke the ice. They took a couple of disciples in their confidence and told them about the spiritual knowledge.

When we talk about spirituality in Islam, it is known as Sufism and when we talk about spirituality in Judaism, it is called Kabbalah. Kabbalah and Sufism are the same. The difference that you will see will be intensity. Some missiles have a range of 5000 kilometres while some others have a range of 10 000 kilometres. Similarly, Kabbalah is the science of spirituality; however, the aspect of being able to see God is missing because that knowledge had not been revealed when Judaism was established. Later on, the knowledge of seeing God was revealed upon the heart of Prophet Mohammad.

Members of Mehdi Foundation International embrace both the knowledge of Kabbalah and the knowledge of Sufism.

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

The awareness of who you are is very important. If you have been accepted by God and have been awarded God’s love, then you will be granted a kind of special awareness. That awareness is not about God; that awareness will be about you: who you are.

When God is displeased and angry with you, he deprives you of self-awareness. What a darkness it is that you know everything but yourself!

Those who are granted awareness of themselves become very humble.

There is a self-humiliation process within yourself. When the mirror of your heart is polished well, then your ego reflects on it. It shows you constantly how ugly your ego is. You will be under the impression at all times that God is not happy with you.

Those who are misled and misguided are always under the blanket of this impression that they’re the best and very holy. If you think you are holy, then there is a problem with your mind and heart.

Along with educating the minds of children, [we] should also educate their hearts. When their hearts are educated, they will be better people on Earth. With a better mind, you become a better engineer or doctor. However, without the education of the heart, you’re evil like Hitler.

Awareness is very important, but there is no college out there where you learn awareness of yourself. This process starts within yourself the more your heart is enlightened, the more your self is mortified and the closer you get to God. You need to be so close to God [in such a way where] you can’t be closer to God anymore. Then he will give you the awareness of you.

Everyone, whether they practise a religion or they don’t, thinks they are the best. They believe that they know everything. They say such things because they don’t have awareness.

This is why I said long ago, ‘Self-exploration is divine exploration. Self-awareness is divine awareness.’ This is very important: the awareness of you to you.

What a pity it is that people can know who you are, but you do not know who you are!

Hadith-e-Qudsi (Sacred Tradition):

When God chooses somebody to be successful in their efforts in pleasing God, then God causes them to find flaws within themselves.

This means you know you are bad. If you know you are bad, God loves you. If God doesn’t love you, you will never know you are bad.

There are so many examples of people not wanting to admit that they are bad. This is because they lack God’s willingness. When God wants you to be successful in your efforts in pleasing God, then he causes you to be aware of yourself.

Khudayi Fassad Aur Aloohiyat-e-GOHAR SHAHI
30th January 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Khudayi Fassad Aur Aloohiyat-e-GOHAR SHAHI

Read the full article here.

Food for thought about how God behaves with his creation and the new option offered to humanity by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.

Main points:
– In rapturous love, there is equality between the two parties involved; however God always remembers he is the creator and that human beings are his creation. How can he engage in rapturous love then? When human beings wanted to love God, he did not tell them how to love him; rather they said he would do the loving himself. Human beings are practically helpless in his system. It is time for humanity to demand their divine rights from God.

– God has a lot to answer for. On the Primordial Day, when a multitude of souls leapt for the modelled luxuries of the world, there was no Carnal Self to influence them towards the world. It was the nature God created them with that pulled them towards the luxuries of the world; therefore it is not their fault they will enter hellfire, but rather God’s.

– The true Lord is the one who came on Earth and went through the human journey. He is the one who feels what human beings feel. God did not do this; but Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi did. If anyone obtains God today, it is because of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s bounty.

– Whoever seeks paradise will enter paradise, but whoever seeks God will also enter paradise. It should have been that those who seek God should be put with God. Some people have sacrificed everything to reach God, and in the end they’ll go to paradise. However Lord Ra Riaz says that whoever seeks Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will stay with Lord Ra Riaz forever. This is a sincere offer.

– Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi is the Lord whose claims are offers are sincere. He does not do anything out of greed. He never created any creation to worship him; he gave his creation all sorts of liberties. God however, did create his creation to worship him. On the Day of Judgement, we will find out whose kingship is in effect. On that day, all will want to bow before Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, but only those will be able to who have bowed before Him in the phenomenal world.

Martaba-e-Aloohiyat Ki Burhan GOHAR SHAHI Ke Qadmon Mein
26th January 2017|ArticlesLectures

Martaba-e-Aloohiyat Ki Burhan GOHAR SHAHI Ke Qadmon Mein

Younus AlGohar unveils secrets of creatorhood in this eye-opening lecture. Read the full transcript of this video in Urdu here.
Main points:
– To be considered a creator, you have to have a special type of evidence (Burhan). In the Quran, God denied that he ever had a partner in creating creation. He further said that those who claim to be a creator do not have the required evidence. He didnt explain what that proof is.
– To prove oneself as a creator, one must have created both Zaati creation (related to God’s personal being) and Sifati creation (related to God’s attributes). God’s Zaati creation are the divine sub-spirits: Jussa Taufiq-e-Ilahi and Tifl-e-Noori. God’s Sifati creation includes human beings and angels. The greatest evidence of God’s creatorhood lies in the Jussa Taufiq-e-Ilahi that have the ability to fly – there were only ever two; they were given to Lal Shahbaz Qalandar and Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi.
– Evidence of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s creatorhood can be seen in the 11-12 special souls that have a direct connection to Him. He sent those special souls in this world as proof. Only those souls have rapturous love for His Divine Eminence. People who are loyal to His Divine Eminence will go through the process of Spiritual infusion and be transported to the Unseen World where the Community of God resides.
– There is a difference between Illah (the Creator) and Allah (God). When God created creation, that is when his attribute of Illah manifested into a being. So actually his rank of being an Illah is only as ancient as creation itself. When human beings reach the Station of God-Seeing, they actually manifest the splendour of the Illah rather than the being of God.

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

Adam Safi Allah (Adam the Eminent One) was the first whom God granted the esoteric knowledge and last of 14 000 different species of Adam created by God.

Prior to Adam Safi Allah, none of the progenies of 13 999 Adams were granted the esoteric knowledge; hence they were unable to connect with God and reach Him. Since the esoteric knowledge was not granted to them, therefore their souls and other spiritual faculties had been dormant and deprived of capitalising human instinct.

Human instinct in man reflects in his character only when the souls in him are awakened and enlightened.

If the souls remain dormant in a man, he doesn’t develop human characteristics such as pure love, gratitude, forgiving the offenders and other positive traits.

With the help of the esoteric knowledge, one awakens and enlightens his souls, and discovers within him the original human characteristics and sense of superior creation.

Since progenies prior to Adam Safi Allah were not granted the esoteric knowledge, they couldn’t recognise divinity and its traits. Therefore they were easily misled and engaged in mischief and bloodshed. Today, humanity has lost that esoteric knowledge which connects man with God and awakens human characteristics in him.

Imam Mehdi has revived the esoteric knowledge once again, to uplift humanity to higher levels of spirituality so as to revive Human Characteristics in all human beings again. And this is the purpose of Imam Mehdi’s advent!

This article was first posted on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page. Learn more about the different species of Adam and the hidden history of man in the sacred book penned by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love).

Signs of a Successful Initiation of the Heart
1st January 2017|Articles

Signs of a Successful Initiation of the Heart

Signs of a Successful Initiation of the Heart

Invocation (Initiation) of the Heart is actually spiritual synchronisation of the word ‘God’ in the beating system of the heart.

One change you will notice [after a successful Initiation of the Heart] is that on occasion, your heartbeats will rise, even when you are not engaged in physical activity. You may be sitting quietly in your armchair or laying in bed, and out of nowhere you will notice that your heartbeats have risen. Another sign you will notice is that you will feel extra heat in your chest. With that heat, you will feel peace, spiritual serenity, calm and relaxation. During your sleep, definitely the Satan would want to stop you [from the practice of repeating God’s name]. Satan would come and try to sit on your chest; suddenly, you will see that His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has come in front of you. Involuntarily, without you saying it with your tongue, you will hear your heart saying [God’s name]. This is to know that your heart has been initiated.

After Initiation of the Heart, you will cry in God’s love frequently. You will notice that your heart has now gotten softer. Instantly, you develop a hatred for sins. You would want to forgive everybody; you would want to be kind to everybody.

There are numerous symptoms, but these are the most prominent features that you will have as symptoms after the Initiation of the Heart is successful.

The purpose behind Initiation of the Heart is to produce divine energy.

The purpose of production of divine energy is to enlighten the spiritual heart (the entity known as Qalb).

The Koran said, ‘Satan runs through your bloodstream.’

The idea is that the heart should start producing divine energy, which is generated by the practice of synchronisation of God’s name in the heartbeats. This production of divine energy will mingle in your bloodstream and push out the ingredients of the devil. The entire body will have to go through this internal cleansing. It will take at least three years for the entire body to become purified and cleansed. The entire bloodstream will have to be cleansed with the help of this divine light.

When the entire bloodstream is enlightened and divine energy is mingled with the bloodstream, all other souls that rest in the chest will start to awaken. When they’re awake, you will feel a beat on the other side of the chest as well.

It is difficult for some people to acknowledge that invocation has started in their heart, because even without it, you have throbbing in your heart. However, on the right side of your chest there is no heartbeat. If you feel beating either in the middle of the chest or right side of the chest, then it is the evidence that invocation has started in other souls also.

What is next?

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, ‘If your heart is initiated and enlightened, the heart itself will enlighten the entire spiritual and physical system of your entity.’

It will take time, however the Initiation of the Heart alone will render to your heart complete trust in God and faith in God. You will become an enlightened conscience.

Thoughts on Extra-Celestial Secrets
21st December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Thoughts on Extra-Celestial Secrets

At the time of Prophet Mohammad, the knowledge of the heart was considered to be very obscure. It wasn’t meant to be given to men of little spiritual intelligence. If the secretive spiritual knowledge is confined to the elite group of people only, the question is: who will decide who is a common man and who is member of the elite? This remains to be a mystery so far.

It was not just at the time of Prophet Mohammad that the knowledge of the heart was considered to be obscure, mystical and secretive. Such was the religious environment also at the time of Lord Jesus Christ. Only the very close, trustworthy disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ were given to taste the knowledge of the heart.

When Abu Hurraira (a Companion of Prophet Mohammed) was asked about different types of knowledge within Islam, he was scared. He said that he had already told people the most common type of knowledge and if he revealed the second type of knowledge, he feared he would be killed. Therefore, he didn’t comment on the secretive knowledge.

Later on, whoever was able to reap benefits of the knowledge of the heart became a saint of God. Then God appointed him to look for deserving souls of this knowledge. [The saints] did speak about that knowledge, though not in public; they [did so in] their spiritual centres. Even if it was revealed, it was revealed through different spiritual riddles and gestures. It wasn’t plain enough for common people to take any meaning out of it.

The Poet of the East, Iqbal, said, ‘Beyond the milky way and the stars, there are some furthermore realms.’ However, that is [all he said]. This statement doesn’t give you any road map as to what you should do in spirituality to go beyond those stars and reach those realms, which are laying empty somewhere hidden.

The knowledge of the heart is very important. Without the knowledge of the heart, you cannot reach anywhere for except churches, mosques and temples.

In spirituality, you have to have discipline, purgation and mortification. There have been millions of saints of God who came into this world. Somehow, they conveyed the knowledge of the heart very discretely without whispering the knowledge into words; they did it through a spiritual transmission between hearts.

It has been a sad fact that a majority of any religion was unable to translate the meaning of the Divine Word into true understanding. When the knowledge is heard in words, it does not carry the true interpretation.

Saying, ‘Sorry,’ when your eyes are full of tears is different from apologising while you are grinding your teeth and your nostrils are flared with anger. Although the word is the same, the impact is different: negative and positive [depending on the emotions it is said with]. Words are very deceptive. Emotions do not need words to travel from one heart to another.

The word of God is ethereal like himself. The word of God should be heard with ethereal — not material — ears.

The Divine Word has to enter the heart and the light which comes with it has to be absorbed inside the heart. If the word of God enters your brain rather than your heart, you will ruin [your] religion. For example, the food pipe is very close to the windpipe. If water enters the windpipe rather than the food pipe, you have problems.

Common folks of every religion haven’t been told how to understand the Divine Word. You cannot understand the Divine Word with your brain.

You need a sound, enlightened, spiritual heart. The spiritual heart has to be in contact with God, so that when you stumble in trying to understand any word of God, you are duly helped by God who resides in your heart.

If you do not have the presence of God in your heart, the chances are that you will never understand what God wants from you. This has been a case for centuries upon centuries.

I was in search for divine love and Prophet Mohammad’s love when I was a child. I did everything that I was aware of but I couldn’t get a glimpse of light, divinity or spirituality. After a few years of spiritual quest, I got sick and tired of following shadows and the futile practice of going into the mosque [to worship]. I didn’t avail anything out of it, so I got fed up, started playing cricket and forgot about God.

Then, somebody came and said, ‘I want you to meet my spiritual guide.’ I told him, ‘I’m already fed up with all these religious scholars, seminaries and clerics who say something and do another; who talk about God but do not know God. You are a good friend of mine and I respect what you are saying, however you have to make a promise to me. If you want me to go there with you, you have to say it in words that If I be misguided, you will be responsible on the Day of Judgement when I appear before God.’

He took oath and said that yes, he would be responsible.

I went to see what I was not planning, what I didn’t wish for or imagine of. It was something far greater than that which I would have imagined.

The beauty was that, before I could hear any discourse of spirituality from His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, just by looking at the face of the Lord, my inner devil submitted.

The splendour of HDE Gohar Shahi’s face was splendid, beautiful. The soul was dancing to the tunes of HDE Gohar Shahi’s love. In the next 20 minutes, I was initiated and my heart was pounding with God’s name. I was feeling like a different man, as if I had taken a shower of light and love. I felt like all the sins and their burden had been lifted from the shoulders of my soul; as if the heart was given a new life and new sight was given to my eyes. I was divinely mesmerised. Words will definitely fail me in describing what my feelings were in that moment in time.

I was astoundedly taken aback. No questions were asked by the Lord. He didn’t ask, ‘What do you do? Where do you come from? What sect in Islam do you practise? Are you a special soul or a wayfarer?’

Then, the mysteries of spirituality were laid open before my eyes by the Lord. My spiritual journey started. I was taken to every single realm that exists, either here or there. I was given to see the Lord with his beauty.

Then, I found out that there is a real world and this world that we live in is not real. That world is not here; only the enlightened souls will be given to see that realm. I managed to see those realms also, but I didn’t seem too excited or satisfied.

Then one day, the Lord said, ‘After the perimeters set by God, after the Line of Nothingness, there is another world: the Unseen World.’

We live in this world with human beings and different species of animals. There are 18 000 different creatures here. In the Unseen World, there is a different type of individuals [and they are 35 million in number]. ‘Allah’ is the name of their nation [just as] the entire human race is a nation.

I came to know that we are images of those individuals who live in the Unseen World.

When I was there, I was told by God that God is only one — as it is revealed by all religions. The Lord said to me in the Unseen World, ‘There are many different types of human beings with different faces. God created Adam in his own image. If every single human is the image of this God, why do the images differ? If God created every human being in his image, then all of you should look the same.’

The images from the Unseen World of 35 million individuals were borrowed by God. So there has to be 35 million different images [in this world] and they keep repeating.

For example, those who were created after the image of Lord Jesus Christ (who is from the Unseen World), will have some emotional and spiritual features of Lord Jesus Christ in them. Whether someone is a Muslim, Hindu or Christian — whoever they are — they will have features of whom they have been created in the image of.

We are just images. The real people live in the Unseen World and they are known as the Community of God (Allah Biradari).

I was told so much there. I forgot how to deal with human beings. I forgot what the right form of behaviour is for human beings — what they should look for and what they should wish for. I spent quite a bit of time [in the Unseen World] and I adopted their ways.

I revealed to a common man that there is a secretive realm beyond the world created by God. There are 35 million individuals in the Community of God, and they are all God-alike.

I couldn’t resist. I didn’t want to create another mischief in this world; however, I thought, ‘The knowledge of the heart has been made secretive and has been concealed from common people for centuries. People have been left deprived of this spiritual knowledge. Many million people would have acquired God’s love, if only this knowledge was available for them.’

I realised that I know the truth. I am a victim of the concealment of the knowledge of the heart and this victimisation has to come to an end now.

For centuries, people have been keeping up with the trend set by different Companions of the Prophet and saints of God. They were those who enjoyed God’s love, bounties and blessings, but they confined it to themselves. They did not look upon other people who were even deprived of being called devout Christians or Muslims.

I thought, ‘Why should I do that? Why should I conceal the truth when I know it?’

I did have some idea that if I revealed this, an abundance of hatred would come to me and difficulties would surround me. I know I don’t deserve hatred from people, but then I know that great ones do not take revenge.

Great ones forgive only! Great ones do not degrade themselves by coming to [the level of those who hate them]. Great ones cannot devalue themselves no matter how hard it gets. Now matter how severely they are tarnished and tormented, the greatness inside them will sustain their sanity and forbearance.

If I continued to propagate God’s love and spirituality, I would have gathered many thousands of people around me. However, if I had concealed the knowledge and secret of the Unseen World, my conscience would never forgive me.

It is not just that it pertains to the truth of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, but it is also to do with the truth of Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus shared this secretive knowledge with his disciples and HDE Gohar Shahi shared it with some of His companions. In these circumstances, there was now no room for me to save my skin and conceal all this truth.

If I was a coward and didn’t want to take hatred from people, I would have concealed this truth. I am not a coward. I am ready to take up any amount of hatred from any religion or individual.

I decided that I must raise my voice. At one point in time, I was a victim, made so by some elite individuals who concealed the knowledge of the heart. That victimisation came to an end with HDE Gohar Shahi spoke about this in public.

This knowledge was never discoursed in public because people were not brave enough to take up all this hatred from others. They couldn’t deal with all the religious verdicts against them [if they chose to speak about spirituality].

Every single individual who spoke about this knowledge was given a hard time by hardliners and the radical element within Islam. And it was not just Islam. Even the conventional Jews do not approve of Kabbalah teachings. The Christian hierarchy do not approve of Christian spirituality.

In every religion, a majority of people who practise the religion vigorously do not approve of this knowledge of spirituality for any reason.

One reason may that they do not know what spirituality is. Secondly, maybe they are quiet because they think that if they spoke about this knowledge, they would have to face a lot resentment and hatred coming from public. They wanted to leave a peaceful, cosy life therefore, they didn’t take this challenge.

I thought, ‘I claim to love HDE Gohar Shahi and I want peace? What a foolish idea!’

If you love HDE Gohar Shahi, then forget about peace. Your life will become a struggle, with a promise that during that struggle, you will never stumble. HDE Gohar Shahi will keep up with your progression.

I know when I speak about the Unseen World, God who created this world doesn’t seem to be pleased. However, when I look on my right, I see Lord Jesus smiling. When I look at my front, I see Lord Ra Riaz smiling. That is enough for the peace of my heart that whatever I am doing is not wrong and somehow or other, I am bringing a smile on their faces. These are the most important faces of my life.

This is not a made up story. If this has been a made up story, I would only declare this to be the truth — but I don’t do that. I say, ‘All these prophets are true. God is the creator of this universe. People who want to love him, I will help them love him. People who want to reach him, I will help them reach him.’

I am not rejecting him. I respect all the prophets and saints of God because I know they are true. I respect God because he is the creator. I don’t deny that.

The only additional thing I say on top of every other truth is the secret of the Unseen World. I say it because I have the feeling that I have been a victim of the spiritual system in which the knowledge that we badly needed to purify our heart was not available.

We were kept in the dark for all these years. We were told to offer Salat [a certain way] and go to the mosque, but it was fruitless according to Prophetic Traditions and Quran. We were never told of the knowledge of the heart.

The inspiration of revealing this truth of the Unseen World comes from my own emotions. The emotions of being a victim of the spiritual system, in which I was seeking to love God and the knowledge which would allow me to love God was not available.

Where are the elite ones and who are they? If they are elite and I am not elite, is this my fault? We are how we are born; it is not our fault. Why should [one person] be upgraded and [another] be downgraded? What kind of system and justice is this?

I decided not to let anybody else in this world become yet another victim of this spiritual system. So I revealed [the truth]. I was duly supported by the Lords.

Without their help, I wouldn’t have travelled an inch. [We] live in such a hostile world. The hostility is so fierce and it comes from somebody who is capable of doing anything, [God]. Still we are survivors, because the one who is taking care of us is greater than the one who has developed an unreasonable hostility.

[God doesn’t] have to be hostile to human beings made of clay and ‘a dirty drop of water.’ This is how we are described by God. He said that we are the result of a dirty drop of water.

When you introduce your children to other people, do you ever say, ‘This is my son and he is the result of a dirty drop of semen’? It is strange: God described us in the Quran in such a way. What a bad introduction to human beings! If you see your God struggling with proper words, in which Lord or God would you keep your hopes?

I gave you food for thought: God created man in his own image. There are so many men in this world. Everybody has a different image. Which one is your image? How come there are so many images? It is simply because there are 35 million images in the Unseen World.

God created one Adam in his own image, but there are different images. Not everybody looks like Adam.

For example, there are two brothers who don’t look like each other. If one of them in the image of God, then what about his brother?

So a foreign help is established. What about that claim [of God] now, ‘Do not appoint partners with me’?

Spiritual Infusion (Zam)
20th December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Spiritual Infusion (Zam)

‘Zam’ in English means fusion. Never before with a spiritual connotation was this word used.

Spirituality starts from revival of the spiritual heart. The revival of the spiritual heart connects one with God. This is the beginning. Culmination in the spiritual sphere of the world is when, with the help of spirituality, God is unveiled before the seeker of the path. God manifests his splendour before them.

When the seeker of the path manages to reach this stage and arrive at the Station of Union with God, there are different jobs for a person like this.

God may decide to confine him to God, which means such a person is completely cut off from the world and its contents. He is cut off from all creatures. He is thickly and profusely consumed with the essence and presence of God.

Or, in order to make some use of the spiritual man who has become united with the essence of God, God confers upon him the power and authority of initiating other hearts onto the divine path. He is then delegated by God to represent God. He becomes the complete embodiment of God, like Thomas (who was a very close disciple of Jesus Christ).

If I dissect the word, culmination, in spirituality it means to find ultimate union with God.

What actually happens is, one of the souls that rest in the head (the Ana) is taken to the audience of God. The image of God that one sees in that moment in time is absorbed by that soul.

The live image of God is absorbed by the seeker’s soul in the head and then internally transferred onto the heart of the seeker.

When this has happened, God addresses his own image, now in the heart of the seeker. When he goes [back down to Earth] and the live image of God is on the screen of his heart, then whoever sees him sees God.

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Whoever has seen me, he has only seen God.’

This is the culmination in spirituality. Whether you talk about Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus or Mohammad through their religions, this was the brand of spirituality they projected to different races of humankind.

The New Spiritual Culmination

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has given a brand new concept of culmination in spirituality. It is not to do with the image of God.

This is different.

There was a Sufi Saint, Mansoor Hallaj, who developed some sort of misunderstanding in which he thought that his soul has been infused with God’s.
When this Sufi uttered those words, he was at the Station of Awe.

In spirituality, [the Station of Awe] is a state where you are at a crossroads: you lose a sense of identity and do not know who you are. In the process of the spiritual absorption [that I just explained], the reflection of the image of God that falls upon the heart gives the seeker the impression that they are now no more and that there is only God [in them]. When the seeker looks at his heart and witnesses the reflection of God’s image, he fails to distinguish between the image of God and the reflection of the image of God. He considers himself to be annihilated.

Mansoor Hallaj got stuck in the Station of Awe. This happens when one doesn’t have a proper and divinely delegated Spiritual Master. When he got stuck, he failed to distinguish between his reality and the reflection of God’s image. So he developed the impression that he is now gone and the one who lives as him is God. When people asked him,‘Who are you?’ he said ‘I am God,’ because he lost his senses. He was amalgamated by the holy smoke that was coming from the reflection of God.

For example, there are neutrons, electrons and protons. I can see before me a light, which has a kind of fog around it. This fog is the result of the electrons that are emanating from the filament. When we see things, the photons in the eye either increase or decrease. When they increase, the image become blurry and when they decrease we cannot see [anything]. The image of God is made of photons.

Mansoor Hallaj was the only one among millions of Sufis since the beginning of Islamic mysticism, who failed to distinguish between his own reality and the image of God that was inside his heart. He thought that God and his soul had, through some spiritual chemistry, become united and were now one. He was not talking about union; he was talking about spiritual integration.

Due to lack of knowledge, he was of the opinion that he had plunged into the divine river and had become part of the river. He thought that he himself was a drop in the [river] of God which completely dried up from the heat of God’s manifestation. He believed that he was now gone and he was the river now. However, this was a misunderstanding.

I mentioned this story so you can relate to what I am going to say.

Zam is Spiritual Infusion. This is new technology in spirituality. In the field of spiritual sciences, it is a new invention. You will not find this word anywhere else.

Lord Jesus Christ did mention the Spiritual Infusion that we are now projecting to the world, but when he spoke about it, it was to a private audience. Everything he said relating to his own origin, he said it very quietly. This is why the Christians who solely depend upon the knowledge that comes from Bible are not aware of the true person of Lord Jesus Christ.

[One day] while Jesus was talking to his very close disciples, Mother Mary came. Jesus must have told the disciples that a woman cannot obtain infusion with [his] soul. So one of these disciples, when he noticed Mother Mary was standing there, said to Jesus, ‘There is a woman standing here.’ Jesus replied, ‘That is not a woman.’ The impression I get from these words is that Mother Mary would have found infusion with Lord Jesus Christ and Mother Mary would not be confined to the paradise or heaven created by God. I personally believe Mother Mary would travel with Lord Jesus Christ into the Kingdom of Lord Jesus Christ.

So those who worship Mother Mary, I respect them because she belongs to the Unseen World where God comes from. Even if you worship Mother Mary, you are not committing a spiritual or religious crime. If you knew what a woman or man becomes after infusion, no one would object to worshipping her.

So what is infusion?

Infusion is mixing of your soul with God.

I must give you the example that Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi gives in order for us to understand what is infusion.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Think about tea. How many ingredients do you use? You need milk, tealeaves and sugar. Just notice what happens when tealeaves are added to the milk. The tealeaves leave their colour and milk becomes brown. After the milk is added with the colour released by the tealeaves, you cannot separate that colour from milk anymore.

‘Then you add sugar and stir it well. The sugar crystals also become part of that liquid. It becomes tea. Now, milk and sugar and tealeaves have a new identity, a new name. You cannot call it milk but milk is part of it. You cannot call it sugar but sugar is part of it. You cannot call it tealeaves, but tealeaves are part of it.’

Similarly it is not about going up to witness the presence of God with the soul of your head, taking an image of God and putting it into your heart. It is not about divine selfies anymore.

Now, you stay wherever you are. A reflection of the essence of either Lord Jesus Christ or Lord Ra Riaz reflects in you. Mind you, this reflection is different from any other. It is not the same reflection that you see when the Sun reflects on the surface of water. This reflection I am talking about is like an entity, very identical to Lord Jesus Christ and very identical to Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Either what you see is the reflection of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi or Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi himself; you cannot tell the difference.

This is no ordinary reflection; it is a walking, talking entity. This reflection of the Lord will enter into your body.

In Christian spirituality, this is known as Pentecost. Pentecostal means one who has the presence of the Holy Ghost. In a ‘Pentecostal Moment,’ you would think you are talking to the man, when actually you are talking to Lord Jesus Christ. However, what I am talking about is a step further ahead because that Pentecostal [Moment] is not eternal; it comes and goes.

This infusion with the reflectory entity is eternal. Spiritual Infusion is like cloning; [you become] a spiritual clone of Jesus if you are infused with Jesus. When the reflectory entity of Lord Jesus Christ has infused with your soul, it eats up your soul, just as a big fish swallows a smaller fish. Now, you are part of the Lord; you cannot say you are the Lord, but you can say you are Lord. That is how.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi says, ‘Enjoy the mangoes. Don’t ask anybody who has brought them.’

When your soul is infused with the reflectory entity of either Lord Jesus Christ or Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, you cease to be a human being. Now you can travel to the Unseen World. If people will ever see your soul, [something interesting] happens. They will see that you are going, and then a moment later they will say, ‘No, it is not [you]. It is Jesus.’ Later, they’ll see that it is you again. You’ll keep changing. It is a divine twist. When people think you are [just a man] the Lord will come in front and when people think it’s the Lord, [the man] will come in front.

You are now accepted in the Domain of God. I am not saying you are equal to any individual who comes from the Unseen World, however the condition that only God-like individuals can enter the Unseen World is removed from you; you are now exempted. If you are not God, you are not less than a God. This is Spiritual Infusion.

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The most important thing in spirituality is to be a steadfast seeker. You should have unshakeable self-esteem. You should know what you are doing.When you know what you are doing, then do not back off until you reach your destination.

God does not like people who back off when the conditions around them are not favourable.

God wants to test how serious you are! Your determination will be established when no hurdle on Earth can stop you from what you want to get. If there are not enough hurdles to stop you, you are really determined. Determination is the name for different emotional states. For example, it refers to when you are steadfast, when you are clung to whoever you belong.

No matter how hard it gets to survive, even if you are hanging by a cliff, rest assured that you will not fall.

In the line of spiritual love, you have to have determination. The hurdles of the way will definitely [chip away at] your determination. Every time you are weakened by those hurdles, boost your determination by the fact that you belong to the Almighty and the Almighty is watching over you. Know that you are not alone.

No matter how many times you fall, do not stop. Keep falling, but keep journeying as well. Fall down, get up again and go. Repeat.

You must keep going no matter how many times you fall. The devil wants you to fall, so that you are emotionally put off and you quit the journey.

Don’t quit the journey; if you stumble, ask for help and the Lord will help you.
