Wahhabism Exposed: The Ugly Truth

Wahhabism Exposed: The Ugly Truth

People in the world do not know everything about WahhabismI lived in a country where I have seen the rise of Wahhabism. Initially, I was under the impression that Wahhabism is yet another denomination in Islam. There are many sects in Islam like Shiite, Sunni, Ahle Hadith, Tauheedi and Zikri, who confine themselves to the religiosity of their denomination. They have no other motive or agenda — especially not of ruling the world.

The first time I thought of going into the depth of the Wahhabi mindset and philosophy was only after false cases of blasphemy against Islam, blasphemy against Prophet Mohammad and blasphemy against the Koran were instigated against His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi in Pakistan. All these false cases were instigated by individuals who hold high offices in organisations that practise, promote and sponsor Wahhabism.

I went into the depth; I was literally horrified and terrified by my findings. I couldn’t imagine how dangerous to humanity Wahhabism can be.

Muslims who live in Pakistan have but very little knowledge of their religion.When it comes to knowing Wahhabism, their knowledge is very limited, superficial and religious. The most they will know is the difference between Barelvis and Wahhabis in terms of the creed system.

For example, Wahhabis do not approve of saints. They do not approve of visiting graves of the saints. Wahhabis do not approve of sending benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad; they do not celebrate Prophet Mohammad’s (the founder of Islam) birthday. Wahhabis do not approve of any festivity within the religion. Wahhabis do not believe in seeking any sort of intermediary or mediumship. They do not even believe in the potential salvation that a sinner expects to find through Prophet Mohammad. They do not believe in man becoming holy. They do not believe in any sort of knowledge pertaining to the souls. They believe nothing is mystical. They believe there is no other knowledge for except what they read in the Koran which they hold in their hands, which consists of 30 parts.

This is the most a Muslim in Pakistan will know of Wahhabism.

Wahhabis are very cunning. They’re more cunning than a fox, more deceiving than the Satan and meeker than a homeless person sitting on the pavement. However, they are more dangerous than the Devil.

What the world needs to understand today is the religiosity of the Wahhabi sect. They need to know the tenets of the Wahhabi sect and their culture. How do they cultivate minds of people?

It is so sad that Wahhabism found a sponsor a hundred years ago: Saudi Arabia. They say money can’t buy anything, but money is buying killers of humanity. 22 innocent people lost their lives in the Manchester Attack. Life has ended for them; even if a reward is given to their families, they are gone.

We are living in a hypocritical world where government and politicians have their vested interests. People who are in a position where they can really change the world have been limited by their political or religious agendas. Otherwise, combating and fighting against terrorism is not a very difficult task.

[In politics you have many problems and they’re all interconnected. If you do one thing, then you have to consider the repercussions in all aspect; you have to think about the aftermath of your actions and weigh the pros and cons]. These things muddle up and suffocate the brains of [people in the] security agencies.

Then again, you have to do what must be done in order to protect your citizens, freedom and way of life.

Wahhabis Through the Eyes of Islam

Yesterday, I said that there is a reference in the Koran which mandates Muslims and the governments to demolish any mosque which is not intended to seek God’s pleasure [but rather is] inviting God’s wrath.

[In a Wahhabi mosque], worshippers are indoctrinated with hate preaching and taught how to make bombs to kill as many people as possible. Do you think doing such things in a mosque will please God? Demolishing such a building — which some may call a mosque — [is not a crime].

Secondly, I am not asking members of the public to demolish it. I am asking the security agencies, the law enforcement agencies and the governments to do it. It is not about taking the law in your own hand.

There was a time in the era of Moula Ali (a Companion of Prophet Mohammad) when there were 10 000 Muslims with the same mentality as Wahhabis. They were hate-mongers who were spreading mischief in the name of Islam. Every one of them was misquoting Prophet Mohammad. Every one of them was giving a false, misleading interpretation of the Koran.

They were the ones who said, ‘On God’s land, we will only follow God’s command.’ Some people who are very cunning say things like this; God is not here, so they are basically trying to say that they will not follow anybody’s law.

To resolve this issue, Moula Ali fought with them and finished 5000 of them. The other 5000 repented. When they repented, Moula Ali sent them to Hassan Basri [a Sufi]. He said, ‘Go and learn Islam from him.’

When the Koran mandates the demolishment of a mosque, how can you go against it? When a mosque is not serving its purpose, rather it is spreading hatred, shedding blood, it is not a mosque anymore.

If any government demolishes such a mosque which promotes terrorism, [Muslims] should accept it because it is not doing what a mosque should be doing. A mosque is a place where you go and worship God; you do not hurt anybody.

Islam does not allow you to kill any human being; it equals the murder of a single man with the massacre of the entire humanity. However, let’s suppose someone goes to a mosque and his mind gets polluted listening to the lectures of the scholar there. Then, in the name of the religion of Islam, he carries out atrocities and kills innocent people. Will you consider such a person a ‘warrior of Islam’? No! He was a killer.

Every single true Muslim ought to disown such a philosophy and individuals who preach hatred and spread terror. If you do not disown them verbally, practically, physically and ideologically, then you are one of them.

The Tenets of Wahhabism:

  • They want to turn every single human being into a Wahhabi.
  • If you don’t, as a result of your denial, you will be killed. Your properties will be forfeited and your women will be taken as sex slaves.
  • They want to rule the world. No matter how many people they have to kill, they will not stop.

Some governments will have to stop them. If somebody is going to stop them, then that will be the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the United States of America and — do not be surprised — India too. They have to stop them. This will only happen when they understand the problem first. Saudi Arabia and Iran [are spreading mischief throughout the world. If they were to be taken care of, we would be much closer to world peace.]

Talk2Me Radio UK Interviews Younus AlGohar on Wahhabism

Talk2Me Radio UK Interviews Younus AlGohar on Wahhabism

Talk2Me Radio in United Kingdom invited HH Younus AlGohar to speak on Wahhabism. Below is the written transcript of the full interview.

To hear the complete audio of the interview – click here.

Q: Can you explain what is Wahhabism, please?

Wahhabism has been attributed to a form of Islam; however, if you go deeper into the background information of Wahhabism, Wahhabism is a set of extreme, fanatic belief system in which Wahhabis do not recognise any other form of Islam. Especially, they are really against Sufis and Shia Muslims.

What we see today in the world in form of Islamic terrorism is actually Wahhabism.

Q: As I understand it, broadly speaking there are two main sects within Islam: Sunni and Shia – that is the main divide. Like Catholic and Protestant in Christianity. And then there are sub-divides within them. Where does Sufism fit in that divide?

Of course, Islam has been divided into two main sects of Islam which is Sunni and Shiite. Sunni’s are supported by Saudi Arabia and Shitte’s by Iran. Sufism is the form of islam in which people practise spirituality, like Mevlana Rumi and so many other Sufis in Islam who talked about peace, who talked about love and who never hold a grudge against anybody, who are very tolerant, and they love everybody, they love all the religions.They are the ones who are called Sufis.

Q: They’re kind of esoteric?

Yes, true.

Q: What form of Islam were you involved in?

I was born in a Sufi practising family. I practised Sufism and later on, I got tired of religions and I adopted divine love – Sufism. I do not adhere myself to any religion right now.

Q : Having heard some of the Muslim apostates, I heard that leaving Islam is punishable by death. Is that the case? Is that a widely held belief or is it just an extremist belief?

This is very much the thought of the mainstream Muslims. If you leave the religion of Islam, according to the Muslim faith, the punishment is death penalty. That is true.

Q: That is a shock to me. I would certainly not expect that to be the case from a mainstream point of view. If that is where we are at, surely that is something more people should know about. It should be discussed on a mainstream platform, don’t you think?

I have spoken on this subject many times and I can really give a long lecture on this point. But this is what Muslims all over the world understand, that if one leaves the religion of Islam, then he must be killed.

Q: If someone is listening to this conversation who maybe is a Muslim and part of Islam and they want to leave, what is actually the sensible way of going about that without causing problems?

The best thing is to leave the Muslim country where you are, go somewhere else and leave the religion. However if you live in Saudi Arabia or all these Arab countries and you publicly announce that you have left Islam, then you are inviting trouble.

Q: So go quietly, I guess is what we are saying. I want to tackle this word Wahhabism. Some people have a problem with the word, Wahhabism. Don’t they call it Salafist? They have another word for it? Why is it that they have a problem with that word?

Actually, these two different Islamist movements – one comes from Saudi Arabia and the other comes from Egypt. The one that comes from Egypt, Ikhwan ul Muslimeen, they know themselves as Salafis. The Wahhabis come from Saudi Arabia, but they don’t want to be known as Wahhabis. They call themselves Sunni Muslims however they practise the cult of Wahhabism.

Q: So what is the root origin of that word?

Wahhabism comes from Saudi Arabia. There was a guy known as Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab, he was from the central province of Saudi Arabia. He was denounced by his own father for his extremist views, however later on, people started to like his stand on Islam and his extreme views on Islam. This is how it progressed.

Later on, about 100 years ago, when Saudi Arabia was part of the Ottoman Empire, these Wahhabis with the Saudi royal family, formed an alliance and they defeated the governor of the Ottoman Empire. This is how they gained power in Saudi Arabia in the early 1900s. This is when Wahhabism started to make a stronghold for themselves. Then the oil money, which was like a stamp on their progression. Now they’re spending billions of dollars on widespread of Wahhabism all over the world. This doctrine of hatred has now taken place in the hearts of young Muslims all over the world.

Those who practise Wahhabism do not need to be further radicalised because Wahhabism itself is an extreme radicalisation. Those who practise Wahhabism, inside their heart, they are potential terrorists. They can carry out any atrocity, any act of terrorism anywhere in the world. Because this is the principles of Wahhabism. For except themselves, they do not consider anybody else to be true Muslims. Those who are not Wahhabis, they must be killed and all their properties must be forfeited by them.

Q: Famously, the victims of Islamist terrorism tends to be Muslims statistically more than anyone else. If we could wave a magic wand and remove those ideas of Wahhabism and Salafism and be left with moderate Islam. If we could tackle the problem of Wahhabism/Salafism islam, would we still have a so-called clash of civilisations on our hands? Would we still have a problem in this country?

The civilisation clash is not as severe as the dangers which is caused by Wahhabis. If we can take care of the Salafists and Wahhabis in the UK, we would be saving a lot of lives. We would be saving a lot of peace for ourselves. We have to take care of these Salafists and Wahhabis. I think this is the most dangerous thing. Not just in the UK of GB, but all over the world. These Salafis and Wahhabis must be taken care.

Q: How do you propose to do that? How can people be taken care of who have beliefs with which we disagree?

We have been working on this campaign: Ban Wahhabism. We have carried out this campaign in India, USA and UK as well. Somehow or other, our petition was removed from change.org in India and also USA. People are becoming more and more aware. We have to keep raising awareness of the potential danger of Wahhabism. One day people will come to know what is the cause of this international terrorism.

Q: Let’s hope this conversation is a beginning to that process here in the minds of people listening in the UK.

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