Global Peace Through Spiritual Sciences & Divine Love

Global Peace Through Spiritual Sciences & Divine Love

The following is the transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech delivered at the Global Peace Through Spiritual Sciences & Divine Love programme in Toronto, Canada.

Good afternoon. I am privileged, honoured and very happy to be here in front of you. I would like to share some of my thoughts, some of my feelings and some of my experiences. I’m not going to give you a lecture on spirituality, but I would like to raise awareness of open-mindedness, of human values and love.

A few hours ago, I was checking my Facebook and there was a video of a young man who was brutally getting beaten up. People were pelting stones at him. They were throwing at him anything they could grab. Then, he died and they stripped him naked. He was all naked and soaked in blood, but the people who were beating him up didn’t stop even though they realised he was dead. They were throwing huge stones at his dead body. His skull was cracked open and there was a fountain of blood coming out from his head. They were raising slogans, ‘Allahu Akbar, God is great.’ There were more than 100 people. They were killing this one, solitary guy with the help of these slogans. Is this religion? This is terrible. How would you feel if this was happening to you?

These people, they were not Taliban or ISIS. They were not terrorists; they were common folks. This is the level of fanaticism, extremism and ignorance. We are living in the 21st century, where science has provided us with a lot of inventions and has made life a little easier than we could have imagined 50 years ago. However, we’re going downwards emotionally, spiritually, intellectually and, of course, mentally.

We believe Christianity, Islam and Judaism were all founded by individuals who were sent by God, but people of one religion have a very fierce disagreement with others; although all these religions were founded on principles of divinity. It is strange. This is not one solitary incident. Wherever you go, you will see these incidents taking place.

It is a very sensitive matter that I am speaking on, however, I cannot keep quiet. I cannot just go here and there and deliver lectures on spirituality, and not even realise what people are going through. We’re living in very strange times.

It is like I want to go to England and I bought a ticket with Air Canada. Now, [suppose] I change my mind and I don’t want to fly with Air Canada – instead, I want to fly with British Airways. If Air Canada says, ‘No. If you don’t fly by Air Canada, we will kill you,’ this is ridiculous. My main destination is England. Air Canada, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and all other airlines are just means of travel. In a similar way, God is the destination and the religions were supposed to be the means of travel.

If I lived as a Muslim for ten years and now I want to change my religion and become a Christian, and you tell me, ‘If you leave Islam, we will kill you,’ it doesn’t make any sense to me. Why? Jesus was also sent by God. What is wrong with Jesus? What is wrong with Christianity? Joseph, Jacob, Moses, Adam, Abraham – all these spiritual dignitaries were sent by God. Why should I become a religious person and risk my life, my peace and the lives of my family? [When I know that] if I didn’t like this religion after ten years and I wanted to switch over – maybe I liked Judaism and wanted to become a Jew – people from my previous religion would want to kill me? It is not making any sense to me.

The thing is, when all these three Abrahamic religions were founded by divinely sent individuals, I do not understand why we have difficulty to accept all the religion and respect them all? Now, there is something wrong. All these religions were founded to cater for the needs of the people of one particular area. They were not designed to cater for the needs of everybody.

While I am speaking, I would like to take this opportunity to have my say on this point: there should be no such thing as Islamophobia. The threat is not coming from the religion of Islam, the threat is coming from the majority of people who misunderstood Islam.

When you become a fanatic, your gates are shut.

There is no such thing as extremism. For example, blessings. Whether the blessings are just little in quantity or huge, they will never change from blessings into something else. In a similar way, God’s love or religious values, even if you take them for extreme, they will not hurt or harm you. So this is not extremism; this is fanaticism. This is hatred and ignorance.

One who doesn’t value a human life, I can never accept that person can ever love God. One who cannot appreciate human values – the value of a human life – I do not think he follows any religion at all.

What comes from the divine, nobody will go against it: that is love. Ask anybody, ‘Do you like love?’ Maybe they will say, ‘We love love,’ whether they are Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs or Jews; even those who don’t practise any religion. Love is divine. What we need today in this global society is love.

The thing is, where is love? It is not available at Macy’s, Walmart, churches, mosques, synagogues or temples. Love is not [as easy to get as going] to Tim Hortons for a cup of coffee and Timbits. Love is hard to come by.

Love is a passage that is paved with a lot of self-denial and sacrifices.

When Jesus said, ‘Love your enemy like you love yourself,’ I thought that perhaps there was something wrong and that Jesus couldn’t have said this. How can you love your enemy? I really suspected that there may be an error. It doesn’t make any sense. Young people spend many weeks and months before they find the chemistry of love between them. They spend a lot of time together. You can’t go to your enemy and say, ‘Can you spend some time with me so I can love you?’

So is it just a phrase or is it a reality? It is a reality.

When you want to love your enemies, it simply means you have nothing left in you but blessings and love.

It is when you have no other feeling left in you; when you have subtracted all other ailments of being a human being and negativity from your personality. Nothing is left but love, blessings and the divine bounty in you, so you are forced by your nature to love everybody.

What I am saying is not imperative. It is not advice. I am sharing my thoughts. Honestly speaking, my concern these days is to raise awareness of this ignorance which is prevailing in our societies: hatred in the guise of distorted religions. It is really troublesome and it is spreading like fire. If we just keep ourselves busy with spiritual practices at home, in the workplace or meditation centre and we do not take it upon ourselves to correct society and the mentality of people – the way people think – then we are not going to have a wonderful society.

This hatred is prevailing. We need a lot of hearts which have been kindled with the flame of love.

Lectures upon spirituality will not help anybody. We need some practical exuberance of love. We need to have a spiritual trade in which we import and export love. Love is a substance. Love is not just [limited to] talk.

The place of love is the heart and the heart must be free.

If the heart is already preoccupied with a lot of other activities, the heart is not going to practise love. You can only preoccupy your heart with one activity because love is a very heavy duty activity. We need to free our hearts from all shackles. Then, get our heart admitted in the kindergarten of love. When the heart has learned to love, you will become a wonderful person. Then, you are love for everybody; you are love to everybody.

This love doesn’t come by reading books, going to temples, churches or listening to lectures. We have to teach our hearts. We have to provide our hearts with positive energy. That is the first thing.

There are many different sources of positive energy. For example, names of God – any name in any language. It may seem confusing: how can positive energy be obtained from names of God? But there is a way, a method according to which the name of God is said in a certain way, for a certain number of times, then it starts to generate divine energy. The moment it starts to generate divine energy, you feel the vibration. That vibration will nurture the innermost nature of your heart.

This is an introduction to love. Only you will know whether your heart has this substance of love when you have it. You will not need to rely on [anyone to] confirm to you that you have love. Your heart is not lying. If you are sitting in front of me, and I can see you and you can see me, [it would be silly for you to ask me], ‘Am I sitting in front of you?’ and [for me to reply], ‘Yes you are.’

When your heart has learned to love you will feel the vibration.

Questions and Answer Session

Q: What in a human being [makes them] distance themselves from the actual state of being loving and feeling divine love?

There are multicellular and unicellular living objects. In a similar way, we are multi-spiritual. It is a huge universe and we have seven spirits in our body.

The spirit which can be in the most possible nearness of God is the main spirit.

Some people who want to be near to God – but they do not know that the soul which can drag them into the most possible nearness of God is still not enlightened, they feel the distance. They are in the presence of God, however when it comes to measuring the distance or nearness, that particular spirit which can go into the most possible nearness of God is the main spirit (the soul). When it is enlightened, you will have difficulty in finding out whether it is [you] or god; you become so near.

Q: How could we raise the vibration of love in the world? To bring more love?

That is a very difficult question.

Before I give away money to everybody, I need to make sure my pockets are full. First, we need to make sure that we have enough love.

Most spiritual people, they just talk about love but their wife is lacking his love. Their children and family are deprived of his love. The gentleman talks about love, ‘My love is for everybody,’ but his children will complain, ‘’Where is my share of love?’

There is a difference in a talkative form of love and practical love. Practical love resides in the heart, it lights up like a candle. The rays of love cannot be controlled. You will just sit there and the beams of love will emanate from your heart. You become so intermingled with the substance of love that you become love on two legs.

Love has no boundaries; it is for everybody. For example, you love human beings but not your dog? [Then it means] you are a liar. You love a human being but you don’t care for the cat on the street? Then you are a liar. Love is blind and it is for everybody; whether you are two-legged or four-legged, does it really make a difference? When there is only love, this is for every single form of life.

Some people only love human beings or their pets. They say, ‘This is my pet, but I don’t love [someone else’s] pet.’ When you have pure love in your heart, this will not happen. You will love all animals like your own pet because you have love [in your heart].

Something is missing in love when love is exclusive. Love is perfect when it is inclusive.

This is my understanding and this is how I view love. Maybe some other people view it from another angle and have discovered more about love – but this is my discovery about love.

Tareekh-e-Tasawwuf
19th February 2017|LecturesVideos

Tareekh-e-Tasawwuf

Younus AlGohar explains what true Sufism is and its role in Islam.

Main points:

– Before the advent of Imam Mehdi, spirituality was to be found in religion. It started with Adam the Eminent One (Adam Safi Allah), the last Adam. 13 999 Adams comes before Adam the Eminent One, but none of them had spiritual knowledge, therefore their souls were kept dormant and they couldn’t reach any spiritual rank. Adam the Eminent One, whose body was made with the clay of Paradise, was the first to receive spiritual knowledge. He was a Grand Messenger; there were four other Grand Messengers who came after him.

– After Adam the Eminent One came Abraham, Moses, Jesus and then Prophet Mohammad. With Prophet Mohammad, prophethood and messengerhood both ended. Through Adam, the hearts of people were revived and God began to send revelation. With Abraham, knowledge of the soul was given. Moses and saints from his nation were able to speak with God. Prophet Mohammad was able to see God.

– God sent these Messengers in order to cause a spiritual evolution and gradually bring human beings closer to him. However, the evolution didn’t happen. When Adam the Eminent One came, he gave people knowledge of the heart. However, by the time Abraham cam, people had forgotten the knowledge Adam introduced to them. Furthermore, the Grand Messengers didn’t emphasise on spiritual knowledge for one reason or another.

– His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi explained that if you want to test your fate, then you should try to obtain Dhikr-e-Qalb (Opening of the Spiritual Heart). With the method given by His Divine Eminence, you find out who you are within seven days. If God allows his name to enter your heart, it means he is merciful upon you.

– A majority of people think Sufism is separate from Islam. However, Sufism is the core of the religion. A true Sufi focuses on God’s name entering the souls, and reviving the souls with Noor (divine energy). There are two ranks in the Stage of Ehsan. People at this stage are those who see God while worshipping. To see God, you need to see him with the ethereal soul in your head, the Ana

– If one is unable to see God, then it is decreed that for them to be at the Stage of Ehsan, they have to make themselves worthy of being seen by God during their worship. God does not look at the bodies or deeds, but at the hearts and the intentions therein. It is false to say that God is watching everyone. If he was, then people wouldn’t engage in bloodshed and mischief.

Batini Taleem Shaoor Ka Ata Hona Hai

Batini Taleem Shaoor Ka Ata Hona Hai

Younus AlGohar analyses the situation of Muslims today in light of a verse in Surah Baqarah of the Quran.

Main points:
– In this particular verse, God says that some people claim they are Momin (true believers) because they believe in God and the Day of Judgement, but they do not know that they are deceiving themselves.

– Islam requires Muslims to declare their faith by the tongue and affirm it by the heart (Qalb). Here, God is saying that what Muslims consider to be Islam is not what Islam is to him. On the Day of Judgement, God will not ask people how many times they fasted or worshipped him.

– When you go to work, you expect to get paid; the money you receive is proof that you work. Similarly, God put inside you your heart which is meant to accumulate the divine energy (Noor) of the worship and fasts you carry out. On the Day of Judgement, God will simply look at the amount of divine energy in your heart and other subtleties of the breast in order to determine how much you worshipped him. Those who worshipped him without obtaining the divine energy for their hearts, God will reject their worship on the Day of Judgement.

– When you fast or go to the mosque, you should know the benefits you will reap out of these practises. It is spiritual knowledge that gives you the power of comprehension so that you can understand why the religion requires you to do certain things.

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.

NewsRescue.com’s Article on Wahhabism

NewsRescue.com’s Article on Wahhabism

NewsRescue.com’s Article on Wahhabism

For many years, Younus AlGohar, along with Messiah Foundation International, has been working tirelessly to raise awareness about the true culprit of Islamist terrorism: Wahhabism. We have proved how Saudi Arabia is the principal financier and supporter of Wahhabism. Major media outlets are now investigating the matter and drawing the same conclusion. As a result, Saudi Arabia’s officials have adopted a hypocritical policy, denying all links to Islamist terrorism and purporting to be peace-loving Muslims.

 In an article published on its website, News Rescue covered one of Saudi Arabia’s questionable denials of links to terrorism. In it, the author mentioned the facts against Saudi Arabia and cited an infographic by Younus AlGohar, pictured above.

Wahhabi Firqay Ki Saazishen Beniqab
20th September 2016|LecturesVideos

Wahhabi Firqay Ki Saazishen Beniqab

Younus AlGohar exposes the Wahhabi sect’s new deceitful policies that they have adopted in response to Mehdi Foundation International’s campaign revealing the truth about Wahhabism.

Main points:

– When we expose Wahhabism and tell people their reality, Wahhabis say to people that we are speaking against Islam itself. This is mischief. We don’t speak against Islam, Christianity or Judaism because these religions were established by messengers sent by God.

– The Quran does not have all knowledge. In Islam, Prophet Mohammad is the City of Knowledge. Muslims believe that the Quran is the source of all knowledge out of sheer respect for the Quran; they have not bothered to investigate where this claim came from or how true it is. Many concepts have become part of the religion that have no basis in the Quran or Prophetic Traditions. For example, Muslims practically believe that Islam reaching its expiry date means that no one will practise the rituals of Islam anymore, or they believe that Islam will never die. Both of these notions are not incorrect.

– The Wahhabis have adopted a two-faced approach now. On one hand, Imam-e-Kaaba said Islam has nothing to do with terrorism. On the other hand he tells women and girls to have sex with the jihadists in Syria. They don’t have faith; God’s wrath is falling upon them and their followers. Muslims think that because the Imam-e-Kaaba said it, it is from God. They don’t know that he is working on the Wahhabi agenda, to spread Wahhabism. People take his word as law.

– Since Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi’s campaign to expose Wahhabism, Wahhabis have been forced to adopt new policies. They used to say, ‘Anyone named Mohammad and Ali has no value.’ They can no longer use their direct approach. They have been forced to recite devotional songs and lie; they even deny being Wahhabis! Now, they are forced to be even more deceptive: they use sweet words and claim to love Prophet Mohammad to draw in recruits. Then, once they have influence over them, they slowly poison them with the Wahhabi ideology. They’re removing the blatant outrageous statements against Prophet Mohammad from their books to facilitate this.

– Zakir Naik said that to ask anything from Prophet Mohammad is prohibited (haram). However God said in the Quran, ‘I am the one who gives and Prophet Mohammad is the one who distributes it,’ therefore to ask help from Prophet Mohammad is not prohibited; rather it is encouraged. This is a conspiracy to misguide common Muslims. The Wahhabis are this era’s mischief.

WHICH Islam Must Be Condemned
31st August 2016|LecturesVideos

WHICH Islam Must Be Condemned

Younus AlGohar responds to radical anti-Muslims on Twitter and explains the truth about Islam and how it has been distorted today.

Main points:

–  Every religion has a time limit on it, an expiry date. When a certain religion expires, what is happening today under the banner of Islam is exactly what happens. Some people just want to denounce Islam and some other people keep on saying terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. Both are wrong: Islam when it was founded by Prophet Mohammad was not the same Islam as we see today.

–  If a religion is not making you holy, that religion is not holy anymore. Today the problems we have in the world are because of these religions after they expired. When religions were founded and the spiritual systems were intact, they were helping people out and responsible for reviving human values in human beings. However, now these religions are bringing the worst out of everybody.

– There was a time when Judaism was the truth. Then there was a time when Christianity was the truth. There was a time when Islam was the truth. When truth separated itself from the religions, these religions became monstrous. We defend the original Islam which did not mean any harm to anybody.  We condemn the Islam practised by Wahhabis and ISIS.

– To collect the Quran in the form of a book was never in God’s or Prophet Mohammad’s plan. Therefore many verses in the Quran we have today have already been abrogated by God. The original Quran was revealed onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad; therefore only Prophet Mohammad, the recipient of the Quran, would be notified of any changes. It would not be made public knowledge necessarily. There are two Quran: the Esoteric Quran and the Exoteric Quran. Esoteric Quran has everything to do with God and Prophet Mohammad. This Exoteric Quran has nothing to do with either Prophet Mohammad or God.

– The apocalyptic forecast of Prophet Mohammad regarding the end times has been heavily modified by Wahhabis. The concept of Imam Mehdi has been modified and they have begotten a new theory of hatred. They have given an unreal, false story of the worldwide caliph who will supposedly rule the entire world and turn everybody into Muslims.

Muslims – The Principal Victims Of Wahhabism
12th August 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Muslims – The Principal Victims Of Wahhabism

We have mentioned the discriminatory, racial, irreligious and lunatic belief system which is prompted by the Wahhabi ideology. However, we did not discuss on this elevated level why non-Wahhabi Muslims cannot get along with Wahhabis. Why is there a fierce enmity, animosity and never ending grudge between mainstream Sufi Muslims and Wahhabis?

The majority of victims of Wahhabis are from within Islam. The majority of people that have been victimised, targeted and slaughtered are none other than the mainstream non-Wahhabi Muslims.

[I am explaining the] reasons why a mainstream Muslim cannot get along with Wahhabis.

What Wahhabis believe is more an emotional crisis for non-Wahhabi Muslims than a religious problem. What they believe is ultra-provocative to any Muslim who truly believes in Islam.

A true devout Muslim will suffer from an emotional setback and instantly, they will become enraged – for this is how inciting and provocative the tenets of the Wahhabi ideology are. Not many people who have taken on the task of making mainstream Muslims aware of the potential jeopardy of the widespread Wahhabi ideology talk about these things that I am going to talk about today.

The world must come to know how ugly a mentality a Wahhabi has and how irrational, insane, illogical, disrespectful, defiling and derogatory a Wahhabi Muslim is towards the founder of Islam, Prophet Mohammad. They have more than just double standards.

The world must know why a Sufi Muslim is so hateful in the eyes of a Wahhabi follower.

The amount of hatred that a Wahhabi has in his heart for Sufis is not because they might have done anything wrong; rather it is because Sufis exhibit love for the Prophet Mohammad. Wahhabis cannot tolerate anybody praising or showing love for Prophet Mohammad.

Most Wahhabis are from the Arab world. Their problem is that they are only aware of ego; they cannot respect anybody. When Prophet Mohammad came to their land, their brains couldn’t digest the heightened elevation of the spiritual status of Prophet Mohammad. They failed to grasp the amount of eminence given to Prophet Mohammad by his lord, his God.

On the other hand, God rather than guiding people, was playing a game of chess. He said to them what they wanted to hear from God. He told Prophet Mohammad to tell the Arabs, ‘I am a man like you.’ [Quran 41:6]

Their problem was [and is] that they cannot respect anybody other than themselves. This is a genetic problem; they can’t get rid of it.

Pakistani and Indian Muslims have lived in a Hindu society where people revere anyone easily, so they have learnt to give more respect. If anybody does anything good, a Hindu might say, ‘He is like my God.’ Regarding their mother, a Hindu may say, ‘What my mother has done for me, even God might not have done it. So for me, my mother is my God.’ This is their style of giving respect.

We lived in that society where showing respect was the fundamental approach towards religions.

As a result, when people from that society became Muslims, they started to give respect to the Quran. About 25 years ago when I was in Pakistan, people used to decorate the Quran with a velvet cover and keep it in the highest point in the house.

I can’t imagine the intensity of respect that would have been generated if God had sent Prophet Mohammad in either Sheikhupura or Gujranwala, or if he had been buried in Gujranwala or Faisalabad.

It is not mentioned in any of the Prophetic Traditions that you must decorate the Quran with a red velvet cover, that you must kiss it every time you see it or that you must keep it in the higher point of the house. This has come from the society we lived in, which was predominantly following the Hindu religion. They give a lot of respect to everything in their religion.

In Pakistan, we were discouraged from talking to our friends in mosque. We were told, ‘This is the House of God. Go outside if you want to talk. The mosque is for the prayers only.’ In Kaaba, the most sacred Muslim place, Saudi, Emirati and Kuwaiti men and women go for dating.

If a cleric in Pakistan was a Barelvi, they made sure that when they spoke about Prophet Mohammad, they would not leave any stone unturned in elevating his status. They said anything about not just Prophet Mohammad, but also the Companions of Prophet Mohammad. They gave us the impression that these people were holy human beings that never sinned or made a mistake. When we read the Quran, we cried because what we heard was a bundle of lies.

Every time we heard about their life and read their stories, I personally would condemn myself. I thought, ‘How can I not do what Usman-e-Ghani, Ali, Umar bin Khattab did?’ We were always fighting with ourselves, condemning ourselves and we were living under a severe form of guilt. We thought, ‘We are really bad Muslims. We can’t do anything.’

The clerics would say,  You want to do like what Umar bin Khattab did? What is your value and worth? You’re trying to compete with such holy people as Umar bin Khattab?’

They would say, ‘Ali was born in Kaaba. You were born in Karachi.’

I am telling the truth. I am only verbalising my emotions.

If you go to the birthplace of Islam, do not forget to take with you a microscope, because you will need to find Islam. You will not see it clearly with the naked eye. Islam is not to be seen anywhere.

All these years as a Muslim, before I was blessed to see Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, I only suffered. There are many problems to discuss, but these are a few of the points.

When you hear stories of dignitaries in Islam, you find it inspirational and you want to be like them. But when you ask clerics, ‘I want to be like Ali,’ they say, ‘This is Kufr (rejection of the truth).’ They want us to idealise the Companions of the Prophet and when we do, they tell us that it is Kufr. What kind of religion is this? When there is a football world cup going on, people start playing football because they find it a source of inspiration. When there is a cricket world cup going on, there is a glamour to it and people start playing cricket.

Similarly, when I would visit a shrine of a saint or a Sufi, I would be thinking, ‘I want to be like him. I want to be close to God the way he was.’ Every time I told somebody I wanted to be like Sufis such as Abdullah Shah Ghazi, they scorned me.

Today I say, ‘Islam does not exist anymore,’ but Islam has not been here for the last 400 years.

The Wahhabi ideology is not new; it is coming from the Arabian peninsula. At the time of Prophet Mohammad, there were some Muslims whose ego would not allow them to show respect to him. They would not leave any stone unturned in defiling, degrading and derogating Prophet Mohammad. Sometimes, they would criticise Prophet Mohammad for not being just. Some other times, they would criticise him for not being punctual in Salat (prayers).

Their problem was: they were from different tribes and since the birth of Islam, they lost their value. They used to be leaders of their tribes, people would come to them and respect them. Their ego was hurt when Islam was founded by Prophet Mohammad. They didn’t have anyone to respect them; all the respect would go to Prophet Mohammad. Those whose hearts were revived, enlightened and they became Momineen (true believers), they embraced Prophet Mohammad’s eminence and started to respect him.

Otherwise, in their culture, people would just scream at the top of their voice. Read Surah-e-Hujrat: they would come outside the Prophet Mohammad’s house, and they would yell, ‘Ya Mohammadah!’ God said to them, ‘Show some respect.’

Prophet Mohammad would be talking to somebody and they wouldn’t care; they would continuing screaming, showing no respect to the presence of the Prophet. In that situation, people would find it really difficult to understand what Prophet Mohammad was telling them.

This is why the Quran 49:2 said, ‘O’ Momineen, do not raise your voice over the voice of Prophet Mohammad. Do not speak to him the way you speak to each other. If you continue to do this, all your deeds, prayer and faith will be wasted. You will not even notice that you have lost your faith.’

So there were people at the time of Prophet Mohammad who had an ego problem. It was for this reason that these people built a mosque for themselves. They said, ‘Islam has come. We know what Islam is and the Quran has been revealed. We don’t have to go to this mosque where Mohammad is. More important is Islam, not Mohammad.’ They built a mosque for themselves because they could not respect Prophet Mohammad. However when they built the mosque, God said, ‘Demolish this mosque.’

When the mosque was demolished, these Muslims who didn’t want to bow before Prophet Mohammad or respect him, they started to offer prayers in their homes. When Prophet Mohammad found out, he said, ‘The mosque was demolished. Why don’t they come here now?’ Somebody said, ‘Now they offer prayers in their homes.’ Prophet Mohammad then said, ‘I just care for their children and wives, otherwise I would have set their houses on fire.’

They totally negated Prophet Mohammad from Islam. Their Islam is minus Mohammad. Their slogan was, ‘God’s land, God’s law. There should be no middle man.’ They are known as Khwarijeen.

They were quiet when Abu Bakr Sadiq was the caliph; they only created a few problems with giving Zakat (religious tax). When Umar bin Khattab became the caliph, they were quiet. When Usman-e-Ghani came, they killed him. When Ali became the caliph, there was a big mischief. There were 10 000 of them and he killed 5000. The other 5000 apparently repented, just to save themselves. What could Ali do then? He was bound by the law not to do anything, therefore 5000 were left.

Look at the tenets of the Wahhabi ideology. They say, ‘The only difference between a common man and Mohammad is that Mohammad was granted Wahi. He is like a postman. Those who kiss their thumbnails to show respect for Prophet Mohammad are actually committing Shirk (appointing a partner with God).’ Then they say, ‘These individuals by the name of Mohammad and Ali have no value.’

They also say, ‘There is no intermediary between a man and God.’ They totally reject the authenticity of mediumship. They want to be in contact with God directly. They say, ‘We don’t need any medium.’

However, contrary to their belief system, let’s see what the Quran says.

‘Oh Momineen, become pure. In order to find God, look for an intermediary.’ [Quran 5:35]

In total disagreement with Quran, is the Wahhabi ideology.

Wahhabis say, ‘There is no esoteric knowledge (batini talim). There is only exoteric knowledge (zahiri talim). There is no such thing as the esoteric realm (batin).’

Quran said about God, ‘God is in the exoteric realm and esoteric realm.’ [Quran 57:3]

I request peaceful Muslims to study the Quran well in order to understand the original form of Islam. Do not confine yourself to listening to a religious cleric only.

You are responsible for what belief system you want to practise. If you pick up a wrong belief system within Islam, you are responsible for this on the Day of Judgement.

No matter how many poor excuses you try to find on the Day of Judgement, you are not going to satisfy God. You are solely responsible to pick up the rightly guided belief system. You won’t be able to say, ‘I was told in this mosque that I should do this.’ God would say, ‘Where was the Quran? Did you read it, did you try to understand it?’ You might reply, ‘No, but these were the representatives of Quran and Islam.’ God would then say, ‘Really? Were they endorsed by me? They were homegrown clerics who spent their lives having intercourse with young boys. How would they know of God and the Quran?’ Religious clerics [today] are the worst people under the sky, on Earth; worse than a wolf.

Salat is a Muslim prayer. What happens in Salat is that you recite verses of the Quran; in the last portion of Salat, you sit crossed-legged. You are supposed to send benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad and upon Prophet Abraham and his progeny. When you send benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad, you would definitely think of him. It is impossible that you talk about somebody and you won’t think about him.

However, the Wahhabi ideology projects that whoever thinks about Prophet Mohammad in Salat, his Salat is ruined. They say, ‘You are better off thinking about a donkey rather than Prophet Mohammad.’

When you say such things about Prophet Mohammad, who is revered by a devout Muslim, you are actually defiling their prophet; you are actually hurting their feelings and emotions. How can a Sufi Muslim have any respect for the Wahhabi ideology? Why would a Sufi Muslim not oppose the Wahhabi ideology?

We have been targeted by Wahhabis in Pakistan. We have been facing persecution at the hands of Wahhabis in Pakistan. 65 members of Messiah Foundation International, back in 2007, had to flee their country; they took refuge in India. With the help of the United Nations, United States of America and Canada offered them asylum. These individuals are now living peacefully in Canada, and in the United States of America. They are exercising free speech. They are allowed to practise what they believe. There is no hindrance either in Canada or United States of America because there is religious freedom. There is no religious freedom in Muslim countries.

Prophet Mohammad clearly said, ‘Do not demolish any church, temple, synagogue – any of the worship place of any non-Muslim.’

ISIS have demolished half the historic places in Syria. What they are doing is nowhere near Islam; it is in total opposition to what Prophet Mohammad has projected 1436 years ago.

I would like the entire world to come to know of the reality: what you call Muslims are not Muslims. They are hateful creatures. They are loyal to none. When they face God, I bet they would definitely find it difficult to even respect God. Their ego would not allow them to bow before God.
