The Struggle for Self-Exploration
28th September 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

The Struggle for Self-Exploration

Extremism and fanaticism are products of ignorance, intolerance and inferiority complexes. People tend to recognise extremism and fanaticism only on a higher level, with the affiliation of religion. However, we need to find the roots of extremism and fanaticism.

It is more of a behavioural issue than a religious issue.

If someone is an extremist, it is not just about religion. There are extremists in different fields. For example, some people are even extremists about themselves: they think they are the best and they cannot give in to their own self.

Fanaticism is not a theory or a religion. Fanaticism is an ugly behaviour. One’s behaviour changes when they don’t respect others, give them space or consider their rights. It changes when they are only concerned about their rights and themselves; when they become self-centred and impatient, and they cannot take a little pain for others at the time of adversity.

When there are good people in any religion, the religion is operated well by them.

Religion itself does not have legs. It cannot do anything; it is just a set of beliefs. The followers of that religion are the operators of it. When the religions are operated by bad people, they start malfunctioning.

Let’s talk about a household. The entire household is managed by the guardian of the house. The way it is managed depends on how bad or good that person is. The problem is not with any religion; whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Islam or Hinduism, all of them are good — but the people who operate these religions are bad.

This is because there is a prerequisite that one must do before they practise a religion: purification of the inner devil.

Without first attaining inner purification, if one follows any religion, they will [misinterpret it]. They will become intolerant.

When we say intolerance is prevailing the society, this is not due to any religion. This is an issue with the behaviour of human beings. No religion is intolerant; it is the people who are either tolerant or intolerant. It is the people who are either rational and full of sanity, or so irrational that they are almost insane.

For example, if a mad person drives a BMW and runs over a couple of men, we won’t blame BMW. It is not the car [at fault], it is the driver.

Fanaticism and extremism are not products of any religion. Extremism and fanaticism have to do with people. Some people are more patient, tolerant and forgiving than others. Some people are short-sighted and impatient. It is not about the religion that one follows. It is about their own being: how composed or disturbed they are.

If your mind is disturbed, you are disturbed everywhere.

That happens when there are some decisions in life which are difficult for you to make. Due to this indecisive nature, you don’t settle things; so there remains a kind of pressure and stress on you mind, keeping it preoccupied. It kills your sanity. Mental disturbance is something one cannot afford.

In order to please others, it is important that you should be happy. If you are unhappy, you cannot make anybody happy. If you yourself are crying and suffering, how can you please others?

In order to be able to make others happy, constitutionally you should be happy in the first place.

We need to educate people on ethical values to build their character. We need to discuss the psychological aspect of everybody’s lives and how our lives can be improved. When our lives are hell, then everything falls apart. Then, we don’t care about our bad behaviour, ethics or anything else because we are disturbed.

When you want to do weight lifting at the gym, if you cannot even move 50 KG, you won’t try to lift it; you know that you cannot put extra weight on your body. If you do, you’ll hurt yourself.

Similarly, in life, you are carrying a lot of extra luggage that you will not need while you are travelling. Life is nothing but a journey and you must travel light.

Make life easy, my friend. After all, this is only one life that you have.

I do not think fanaticism and extremism are about any religion. You don’t have to follow a religion to be a fanatic or extremist. These days, jihadists and terrorists are not devout Muslims; they don’t even know anything about Islam. They’re drinkers and party animals. More and more people, especially in the Western sphere of the world, are prone to becoming jihadists not because they are inspired by Islamic text or they find the Quran fascinating. Rather, some of these people suffer from narcissistic personality disorder.

I used to live in Manchester some 20 years ago. My neighbour was a strange person; for some reason, he didn’t like my face. There was a blind alley between the two houses; he lived on the left side of and I lived on the right. If I walked on the pavement, he would come out and say, ‘You are trespassing on my property.’ I would say, ‘What? I am walking on the pavement.’ He would reply, ‘Yeah but this pavement is in front of my house so you are trespassing. I am going to call the police.’

This is not about their religion. This is about them. They are crazy, impatient, intolerant and ignorant.

What I have just said is not a wandering thought that has crossed my mind. I am a very keen observer. I read men and their behaviour. I have read many people.

To a degree, every single human being becomes an extremist in certain situations and conditions.

The root cause of extremism is to do with behaviour.

Your behaviour is not your fault; it is carved, nurtured and shaped by good or bad experiences in your life.

When you go through denial, rejection and deprivation; when you are scolded by people for no apparent reason, that is when your behaviour [deteriorates]. Behaviour is all about our reaction to certain things.

For example, someone tried all their life to buy a car but they couldn’t. Then they came to England, struggled for a year or two and then finally bought a car. Now you have to be careful; if you damage the car, no matter how close of a friend you are to them, you will be in trouble. They value the car more than they should because of their struggle.

Suppose you did not eat food for 48 hours. Finally, you are a holding a Big Mac in your hand. Just as you are about to take a bite, someone laughingly takes it away and says, ‘I’ll eat it instead.’ You will behave differently [than you would normally].

Our behaviour is not about how bad or good we are. It is shaped and developed through good and bad experiences in life, and of course the way people behave with us.

We need to look into our lives. We need to see what is wrong and right in our life. What is causing us problems? What is the source of disturbance in our life? What is it that is distracting us from our spiritual journey?

Self-Realisation is God-Realisation

In spirituality, you struggle to become good in this lifetime.You become good not just for yourself, but as an embodiment of God on Earth.

When people come and sit in your company, they feel relaxed without establishing any meditation. They’ll just sit with you and feel peace because you have gotten rid of all your evil traits, all the negativity.

We should sort out our problems in life. If something is causing problems, we should see if we can fix that problem. If you can’t fix it, replace it.

Spirituality is something that alone can make a human out of you.

A religion is like a film in which you are a billionaire and you have a lot of money, big houses, cars and everything. When the movie is shot, you come back to reality.

In religion, you imitate being good. Spirituality will make you good.

When you go to a shopping mall in the United States of America, the salesperson will greet you with a business smile. They know it is a fake smile, but it is part of their business strategy. Similarly, a religion will tell you what you can and cannot do, whether you like it or not. A religion wants performance, like a coach of a team.

In spirituality, it is not about performance. It is about transformation.

If you want to see whether a person has made any progression in spirituality, you need to see if he is a better human being today than he was yesterday.

The first step in spirituality is to know yourself.

Self-realisation is an art that comes from spiritual practice and discipline. It is about coming to know of all your physical, spiritual and carnal aspects. A mentor who has culminated his quest in the said field can guide one towards self-exploration on a spiritual journey.

Too many people don’t know who or what they are. When they do good, they want to publicise it. When they do bad, they don’t want [others] to see it. This attitude has led them to a point where they have lost their identity. They do not know themselves.

It isn’t about your parenthood or sisters and brothers. It is about you. It is about how beneficial or harmful you are to your fellowmen.

This is why the first step towards God-realisation is self-realisation.

If you truly know yourself, don’t seek God. God said in the Koran, ‘I am in you. Why don’t you peep into yourself to know me?’

A religion is aiming at you to please God. In spirituality, you find and explore for your personal, original identity.

So spirituality is self-exploration.

Knowing yourself is not an easy job, otherwise God would not have labelled knowing yourself as knowing God.

In spirituality, you go through self-denial and this is the hardest job. You deny and negate yourself.

If negativity in you is stronger than positivity, the negativity compels you to do bad things. You have to make positivity even more powerful with the help of spirituality. Once the source of evil and negativity, the Carnal Self, gets weaker, then the compelling of Carnal Self will lessen. A time will come when you will realise that nobody is pushing you to do anything wrong.

Ego is such a problem. You’ll be defending the ego, the inner devil, but you’ll think you are defending yourself. This is why it is not easy to know yourself.

Q&A with Younus AlGohar
9th June 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Q&A with Younus AlGohar

There are more atheists in England than there are Christians for the first time in history. What is the reason?

For the first time in the history of England and Wales, the graph of atheists has gone higher than those who believe in Christianity and God.

The reason behind this is that the religion is not able to connect people to God.

When they call upon God, they do not receive help from God and the practice of religion is not benefiting them at all. Due to the lack of connection with God, people are distancing themselves from religion and God.

Then, they have seen what religious people are doing. Religion has been dragged through the mire by the actions of religious people.

Whether they’re Christians, Hindus, Muslims, it is so ironical and sad that people who represent religion today are not trustworthy.

The practice of religion is not benefiting anybody; rather it is polluting hearts of people and making divisions among human beings.

Therefore, when you don’t reap benefits of any faith that your practise, at the end of the day, you ask yourself, ‘Why should I waste my time and restrict myself from so many good things that I am not allowed to do by the religion?’

If Christianity in contemporary times had the calibre to connect people with God, and they would have felt God’s presence in their heart, they would have never rejected God or said that God does not exist.

So this is happening because spirituality has become extinct in Christianity, as it has with Islam. The impact of this is different for the two religions: Christians do not have spirituality today, so they are becoming atheists and Muslims do not have spirituality today, so they are becoming terrorists.

It is about the ideology, it is not about individuals.

The filth will stay in this world as long as the ideology of filth is there. Any philosophy or ideology that generates violence, hatred, killing, turns you against humanity or motivates you to kill people is unholy. It cannot come from God.

It is so unholy to attribute terrorism to God. God doesn’t support terrorism. Although terrorism is being supported in the house of God, God is not a participant.

Many people across social media are now passing derogatory remarks about Prophet Mohammad and this trend is on the rise. What do you have to say about this?

The way I look at it is different.

If you say, ‘Prophet Mohammad is bad and Moses, Jesus and Adam are good,’ it doesn’t serve the purpose because it is God who sent all of them. God sent Adam, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad. So don’t think just because you are Christian, that your prophet is good and their prophet is bad.

If you say, ‘Their prophet is bad,’ you’re distancing yourself from God the same way as you would have, had you been going against your own prophet. They all come from God.

If you say, ‘The Muslim God is bad,’ what do you mean? God is only one. There are different names in different religions, but God is one. There is not such thing as the Muslim, Christian, or Hindu God.

How do we properly raise our children with the teachings of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi?

You should tell your kids, ‘They’re all good. Christianity, Hinduism and Islam are from God, so don’t think anybody is your enemy. Do not hate anybody.’

Teach your children this one point and at the very least, they will become tolerant. Just due to their tolerance, people will appreciate the way they have been raised.

Lord Ra Riaz’s main teachings are, simply put, to not hate anybody; to love all. You should love God and humanity; don’t hate anybody. Everybody is God’s creation: don’t think bad of anyone. If a Hindu and a Sikh go to their temples, that is alright. If a Christian goes to the Church, that is fine too.

To cool down a very hot room, we need to open some windows. When there is radicalised community living in the area (and the youth is getting radicalised), we need to promote Sufi thoughts which will dilute it. – Younus AlGohar

Dysfunctionality of Religions
15th April 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Dysfunctionality of Religions

Religions have become futile and have stopped functioning. When such a thing happens to a religion, it happens due to lack of spiritual knowledge.

It is not the bodies which the religions address, rather, the religions provide your souls with activation and initiation of awakening and enlightenment. What you do in mosques, churches and synagogues is a customary, ritualistic performance of worship.

The real worship which God has entwined with your souls can only be performed by your souls.

When the religions happen to suffer from fallacy and inability to manoeuvre the souls of its followers, the religions become futile. They do not function in relation to awakening and enlightenment of the souls.

Whether or not a religion is still valid totally depends on whether it is able to connect its followers with God.

If a religion has thousands of followers and they perform a physical form of worship in mosques, temples, synagogues, churches and other worship places, however their hearts are still dark — their character has not been entwined with moral and ethical values; their souls have been unknown to the attributes of God; the souls have not learned to be compassionate; the souls are unknown to the most auspicious, powerful and supreme attribute of God: love — then the religion has become futile.

Similitude of these religions are on the vital organs of a human being.

The function of the heart is to pump the blood, oxygenate it and purify it. However, if the arteries around the heart have accumulated a lot of cholesterol, toxins and free radicals, which release after the food is digested in the stomach, the performance of the heart decreases and with the passage of time, it deteriorates. A time comes when all the arteries leading to the heart become completely blocked. This is when the pulmonary valve that sits on top of the heart stops beating. The moment the heart stops beating, you expire.

To be honest with you, it is not about the ‘bad’ or ‘good’ of any religion. When Sanatan Dharma, the Hindu religion, was still alive, it was a good religion. When Judaism was still alive, functioning well and connecting people with God, it was good.

Everything that God has created in this world is mortal. Every mortal object has to expire at one point in time. In this phenomenal world, the bitterest of all truths is mortality. You cannot escape mortality.

Sixteen years ago, I would walk on the treadmill with an incline of fifteen for two hours every day. Recently, I have tried to do the same again, but I couldn’t do it. I realise that it is a lot to do with wear and tear. I do not have the same strength in my muscles and the same stamina in my body. The moment we take birth in this world, our journey to mortality begins.

Everything is mortal — and so are the religions.

We are mortal and the religion we follow is mortal. If religions were immortal, we would not need another. One religion would have been enough. The very fact that there are so many religions tells us that every religion which has been established by prophets via revelation from God is a mortal religion. After some time, through the passage of wear and tear, the religion came to an end.

When you follow a religion and you reach nowhere, it should ring the bell. The voice of your conscience does whistle in your heart, ‘You’re not getting anywhere. You’re circulating around one fixed point.’

In the olden times, when people would want to extract oil from almonds and olives, they would put a round shaped pot with a stick in it and tie it to a bull; the bull would go in circles and grind it. The bull would make a thousand circles but not reach anywhere. In a similar way, we are following our religions, but they’re not taking us anywhere because they are not making any journey. They have come to a total expiration.

Muslims shouldn’t be astounded or taken aback by the fact that Islam can die. Islam is not greater than Prophet Mohammad. A time came when Prophet Mohammad departed this world. According to the Quran, everything is mortal except God. God has excluded everything else for except him when he talked about immortality. Islam has come to an expiration. You cannot see Islam anywhere today. What you see today is Wahhabism, Sunnism, Barelvism, Shiaism; they are not Muslims, because the religion of Islam does not exist anymore.

Prophet Mohammad came and went back. Prophet Adam came and went back. If somebody comes and tells me, ‘I am Adam,’ I will say, ‘Shut up. He came and went back.’

Similarly, there is no rebirth of any religion.

When Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani revived the religion of Islam almost a thousand years ago, Islam was still breathing. It was not completely dead. Now, however, Islam is dead. There is no ‘rebirth’ of any religion. When the religion is completely dead, it is dead because God wanted it to be dead. If God wanted the religion of Islam to be revived again, then God would have sent somebody to help Islam before its demise.

There is no planning from God, according to which, the religion of Islam might have been revived.

All the religions are now expired. Humanity is on the brink of death. When the vital organs fail and do not function, either you simply close your eyes and die, or you go for the transplant.

Messiah Foundation International has been blessed to announce to the world that we have a spiritual transplant. All the vital religions of the world which have expired are now being replaced with the Religion of God.

A new system and religion. This religion is the Religion of God, therefore it is immortal like God. This religion does not apply to the bodies; it applies to your souls. The soul doesn’t die and this religion does not die.

The Religion of God is God’s lifestyle. You will become a member of the Religion of God as soon as you successfully adopt the lifestyle of God: the way God behaves and conducts himself. The way God manifests his compassion, showers his mercy on all human beings equally and opens the door upon humanity for his bounty. He is most forgiving, caring and loving.

You will become divine all of a sudden. You will not need to learn his attributes.

When God comes inside your heart and your heart becomes an eternal dwelling of God, then God will manifest his attributes inside you. You will begin to live like God does. This is the Religion of God.

All these religions have expired. The religion of Islam has been grossly subjected to mischief and religious corruption. Humanity is suffering at the hands of Islamists today. If an animal dies and it is lying there, after a couple of days, the place will stink and everybody will suffer. Similarly, the religion of Islam has died and people are suffering. The religions which were made by prophets have come to an end.

The Religion of God has not been established by any prophet or through any revelation. This religion existed even when there was no religion, prophet or messenger. The Religion of God is older than Prophet Adam and Prophet Mohammad.

Judaism & Zionism: The Difference
2nd April 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Judaism & Zionism: The Difference

There have been, more or less, 124 000 prophets sent by God, out of which five were messengers. These five messengers were those upon whose hearts God revealed knowledge. They established religions. Every messenger out of these five were given two types of knowledge: knowledge of the exterior (outer dimension of the religion) and knowledge of the interior (inner dimension of the religion).

The inner dimension of the religion was responsible for connecting people to God, whereas the exterior knowledge was about to how to live your life in perfect harmony and social balance. There were certain provisions: certain acts were declared to be permissible and certain acts were not permitted. If somebody acted on those that were not permitted, they would be called a sinner.

As long as people who followed a religion practised both dimensions of the religion, they were devout religious people and they were connected with God.

At the same time, they observed their religion with its true spirit. They did not go beyond the limits set by God.

Once the religion was deprived of the interior knowledge, people got scattered into different groups and denominations.

At the time of Prophet Mohammad, when Prophet Mohammad was talking about sectarianism within Islam, he mentioned that there were 72 different sects in Judaism. then Prophet Mohammad said that in his nation, there would be 73 sects. Prophet Mohammad explained, ‘Only one group will be rightly guided. Those who will be rightly guided are those who would strictly adhere to my inner and outer custom.’

So there have been fanatic and extremist elements in every religion, including Hinduism and Christianity. When the Ottoman Empire was crushed and the control of Spain was gained by the Christian hierarchy, the Christian extremists were on their peak. There was an element of extremism and fanaticism in Christianity also.

Then, in Judaism, there had been 72 different sects. The mainstream Jews, unfortunately, did not adhere themselves to the inner dimension of the religion. The inner dimension of Islam is Sufism; in a similar way, in Judaism, Sufis are known as Kabbalists.

The knowledge of the inner in Judaism is called Kabbalah. Those who follow Kabbalah are very nice, good people. They love everybody.

In Islam, Sufis love everybody, they don’t hate anybody. Then again, we have fanatics and extremists in Islam, called Wahhabis. In a similar way, there extremists in Judaism. They do not follow Kabbalah; rather, they hate those Jews who follow Kabbalah. Wahhabis do not follow Sufism; they are those who hate Sufis.

Zionists are those who, within Judaism, are extremists and fanatics. They want an upper hand financially, politically and in any other way they might have conceived themselves. Zionists are not true Jews; they are like Wahhabis.

Zionists, Wahhabis and Protestants are like brothers and sisters to each other, if they are not cousins.

I do not know [about this], but I heard from somebody that some groups among Jews say that they are still waiting for the Promised Land to be given to them. When it is said to them, ‘Israel is your country, is it not the land you were promised?’ They say, ‘It is ruled by Zionists.’ So, mainstream Jews who follow Kabbalah are not welcome in Israel.

Those who follow Kabbalah, the inner dimension of Judaism, are not welcome in that state. So, most of the people politically involved there are Zionists, not Jews.

I read news that 50 000 Jews blocked Manhattan in New York City, and they were protesting against Israel. Can we safely that representation of Jews will come from Israel? Do you think Israel legitimately represents mainstream Jews who follow Kabbalah, or is it more or less a Zionist country?

I have seen Jews who were protesting against Israel, against killing of Palestinian Muslims.

I spent some time in Manchester with Jews, who are wonderful people. There is nothing wrong with them. The real Jews do not hate anybody. The only thing that I observed among the Jews who lived in Manchester was that that they are very strict in their sacred law, more strict than Muslims are. However, no matter how strict they were in their sacred law, they were not fanatics. They didn’t say, ‘We are the only children of God and the rest should be killed.’ They didn’t want to hurt or harm anybody.

Therefore, whenever I say anything in favour of Judaism, I mean to praise people who follow Kabbalah. They are wonderful people.

Those who create mischief, no matter what religion they come from, they are mischief. Love and peace cannot befriend people who represent mischief.

Those who want love of God and global peace can be from any religion and may represent any religion. We extend our friendship, love and everything we have to them. They are our brothers and fellow human beings.

However, those who are fanatics, whether they are extremists in Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism or Islam, we cannot befriend them.

The Corruption In Religions
26th March 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

The Corruption In Religions

When you do not know the reality, you throw yourself to assumptions and different theories. This world was created by God and is subjected to God’s plan. Whether you like it or not, nothing will change. In the West especially, a lot of people have become atheists. Most people in England don’t believe in God. However, there are people in every society who believe in God and religions.

People who believe in God and religions are the ones who understand the fact that there is a plan from God: how God wants to run the world, how things will progress in the future and then how this world will come to an end. People who believe in God and religions are the ones who exactly know what a [particular occurrence] could mean in the light of God’s plan.

In the Bible, there is a chapter called Matthew, which is full of signs of the end times. In Islam, there are numerous Traditions of the Prophet Mohammad that discuss the events which will take place before the end times.

People who closely monitor what is happening the world and at the same time, they study their celestial book, they are the ones who are able to see whether or not the end times are coming.

One of the main features of the end times is that humanity is supposed to distance itself from God. Religions are to become corrupted; morality and ethical values will no more be seen. This world, as it is has been designed by God, is to become a place where lawlessness, distortion, tyranny, corruption, hatred, religious crimes and crimes against humanity will prevail.

The most prominent feature of the end times is the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ and then in many religions, a concept of the Awaited One has been propagated.

The main feature of the end times is destruction of religions.

Religions were supposed to lose their value and their ability to make its followers holy. We have so many religions being practised in the world today. However, it is evident that no religion, including Islam, is making its followers holy.

If you are a religious person, most likely, you will be considered by people to be holy. However, it is significantly ironical that the most unholy people you will find today are religious people.

Either you will find the most unholy people on Earth in a mosque, church or temple. People who were supposed to be God-fearing have no fear of God. They give lectures on God’s fear; they instil fear of God in hearts of others, but they think they have been exempted from the luxury of God’s fear. They become so careless and heedless of the religious chapters of the celestial book they are teaching others. They teach others, but they don’t understand. Maybe, in the back of their mind, they think this [does not apply to] them.

The problem is: every single religion that you will see being practised today has become null and void of spirituality.

According to the fundamental principles of a religion, one needs to adopt a religion in order to reach God. For example, when you want to travel, you do so by car, bus, train or airplane. These different types of vehicles are the means of transportation. In a similar way, a religion is like a vehicle.

If you hear somebody saying, ‘I have to catch a flight’, instantly, you will ask that person, ‘Are you going somewhere?’ If he says, ‘No,’ you will ask, ‘Then why are you catching a flight?’ It sounds absurd if they say, ‘I am just catching a flight. It doesn’t mean I am going anywhere.’

However, if you ask anybody today, ‘Why do you practise Islam?’ Trust me: they don’t have any answer. They practise Islam as an inherited habit.

Practice and quality of practice both are inherited from our parents, our forefathers.

For example, if the parents are fasting during Ramadan, and in the daytime, they are watching an Indian movie, the children will get the impression that watching a movie is not a bad thing, because their parents are doing it.

Sometimes, you inherit some of the things from your parents. Sometimes, you adopt certain things from the company your keep.

Every single political party has an agenda, a manifesto. In England, we have the Labour Party, and the Conservative Party (Tories). The Labour Party’s policies support the middle class and poor people. Conservatives don’t care about poor people or the middle class. They only cater for the needs of the rich elite. The Conservative Party is making huge cuts on the NHS, policing, disability allowances and income support. If you know very well what Conservatives are doing and you are claiming benefits, you won’t ever join the Conservatives because you know what that party stands for. You will support a party which will address your issues.

In a similar way, If I ask you, ‘Why are you a Muslim and not a Christian?’ You won’t have an answer.

I am a Goharian. If you ask me why I am a Goharian and not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jew, I can answer you.

Being a Goharian, I enjoy the bounty of my Lord, the divine protection. My life is now full of bliss: spiritual bliss, economical bliss. I have no worries of my future. My heart is set on peace.

I don’t harm, hurt or deceive people. I do not hate anybody for any reason, whether you are Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu or Sikh. Whether the colour of your skin is white, brown, pinkish, blue, etc. I don’t care. I respect everybody. I respect all religions, all men, all women and all children, whether they respect me or disrespect me. You will not find a person of this character either in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism or Judaism. This is why I am Goharian.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi teaches us to respect humanity, not to hate anybody and to love everybody. Jesus said the same thing. Jesus said, ‘Love your neighbour like you love yourself. Feed your neighbour like you feed yourself,’ but people don’t do that. Why is it that Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi says the same things that Jesus said and the followers of Lord Ra Riaz practically believe in what Lord Ra Riaz says, but the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ do not manifest in the characters [of Christians]? We are able to practise this and we are able to witness Lord Ra Riaz’s doctrine of love in our character because we have been given a spiritual methodology. Hearts have been initiated. We are journeying on spiritual embarkment. Whereas [others] only have theory; [they] do not have spiritual methodology.

No religion is bad, but people do not know how to practise a religion. All religions were good when they were established by their respective prophets and messengers.

The corruption in the hearts of human beings has corrupted the religions.

Someone can become dirty by anything: mud, dust – or maybe if it every humid and hot, they will sweat. To clean themselves, they will take a shower. In Islam, Prophet Mohammad declared cleanliness to be half of one’s religion; to love God is the complete religion.

How the world looks at these atrocities and untoward incidents of terrorism is different. They do not get to the bottom of the truth. They think this problem is very temporal. However, I want to tell you that this is part of God’s plan.

I know atheists will hate me for saying this and some others will jump to conclusions like, ‘You are not sorry for what is happening.’ That is not what I am saying. For example, nobody wants to die, but if I say, ‘It is all written by God,’ am I offending you, me or God? When you die, wherever you die, it comes from God. Everybody has the right to live – but when you say that, you are completely ignoring the fundamental aspect of your presence on Earth, which is that you are here for a brief period of time. You are here for your test. 

All these people who are dying in these countries, and all these people who are killing, are useless in the eyes of God. For example, most of the Syrian refugees are economic migrants. I went to Canada and someone told me that Syrian refugees who have now been given asylum in Canada are complaining to the government, ‘You are not taking care of us. We were better off living in camps.’ Justin Trudeau went to the airport to welcome these refugees. All MFI members who came to Canada from India [as refugees, due to them being persecuted in Pakistan for their beliefs], their air tickets were bought by an agency and they were bound to pay back the expenses. Whatever amount of money was spent on them, they were required to pay back to the government – and they did. However, these refugees who are coming now from Syria are not paying back anything. There is no burden of debt on them. They’re given all sorts of facilities: medical, residential, etc. and still they’re so ungrateful.

When they went to Germany, they started raping women. People of Germany did not like the idea of accepting any refugees, but when Angela Merkel announced it, they remained quiet. I still remember seeing images in newspapers and social media that they were coming and people were standing, welcoming them in Germany and giving them water and food. When they finally started living in Germany, they started raping their women. The same thing happened in Sweden; they raped so many women in Sweden. The soft corner that they had developed in the hearts of Swedish and German people, by exposing their ugly character, they have lost it. Nobody wants to show compassion to such idiots.

They’re rapists. What’s the difference between them and ISIS? They’re not escaping ISIS. They just want to come to Europe. This ISIS problem has not started now. It has been there for quite a few years now. Why are they migrating now? They have been living there with all those problems. We should definitely say a big no to all these Syrian refugees. You only blame yourself if you accept them and tomorrow something goes wrong.

The Importance of Spirituality

Younus AlGohar explains how he embarked on the spiritual path under Lord Ra Riaz’s auspicious mentorship.

Main points:

– An overwhelming majority of people believe in a religion just because they inherited those beliefs, not because they have a purpose in mind. When you want to buy a television, you compare prices and brands before committing to one product. Why not take this approach to religion?

– Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi regarding those who came to Him wishing to obtain God’s love, said, ‘I’ll initiate their hearts. If God accepts them, I vow to be with them as a guiding light until they reach their destination.’

– If you want to have access to the realm of angels, you need to enlighten and awaken the corresponding soul inside your body.

– The heart can act like a divine telephone between man and God. Lord Ra Riaz said, ‘When you become a friend of God and you are in trouble, God will instantly know that you are in trouble. When you’re in trouble, the voice of your heart has a hint of sadness when it reaches God. God then commands angels to help you before you raise hands in prayer.

– The only difference between good and bad, God and the Devil, people of Imam Mehdi and people of Dajjal (Antichrist) – is spiritual knowledge. If you have knowledge of the exterior without the knowledge of interior, you will definitely be corrupted in your mind and heart.

– The only thing that will protect your faith is spirituality. Without it, it doesn’t make a difference whether you are a Shia, Sunni or Wahhabi.

Religion Without Spirituality is Mischief

Religion Without Spirituality is Mischief

Younus AlGohar establishes how Islam is dead without spiritual knowledge and how essential spiritual knowledge is. He also explains why and how Sharia is mischief without spirituality.

Main points:

  • In Islam and Judaism, those who talked about spirituality were always condemned and disapproved of by the mainstream religion. Sufism (spirituality) had been the centre of Islamic teachings until 200 years ago. Wahhabis were the pioneers of rejecting Sufism, calling it unIslamic – although there have been Sufis all over the world.
  • Religion comprises of two vital types of knowledge. Spirituality is the life of every religion; the exterior aspect isn’t given as much importance. Islam is alive only when spirituality is practised. If spirituality is separated from it, it is dead no matter how many people perform rituals. Radicalisation is the result of Sharia being practised without the spiritual knowledge. Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Islamic scholarship, without the knowledge of spirituality, is a greater mischief.’
  • Quran says that worshippers who are naive to the truth of worship are destructed. Their worship is not reaching God; rather, they’re showing off. It doesn’t mean physical destruction, but destruction of faith and character. What does showing off mean? Their worship will not reach God, but people think they are dedicated worshippers. When this happens, people’s respect for such a person boosts their ego, destroying them spiritually. Such a person becomes a live threat to moral values in society. That’s how Sharia becomes mischief.
  • Truth of worship would have entered your heart only if you practised spirituality. Spirituality enlightens hearts, manifesting truth on the screen of the heart. Since people don’t practise spirituality among Muslims, therefore their Salat (worship) is futile, useless and not recognised by God.
  • Sharia is only good with spirituality which will control your heart and you won’t make wrong decisions. Spirituality makes you compassionate. Without spirituality, your heart will be as hard as stone and with spirituality, the heart will be soft. You will help all regardless of religion. However, Sharia without spirituality (now or even at the time of Prophet Mohammad), was, is and will remain to be mischief forever.
