The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This was an excerpt of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer of AlRa TV, who had already obtained Invocation of the Heart. It was originally posted on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page.

The Spiritual Celebration of Holidays
16th December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

The Spiritual Celebration of Holidays

Festivity and celebration is what the religious people are left with today. If it’s Prophet Mohammad’s birthday, Muslims will say, ‘Okay, let’s celebrate.’ If it’s Christmas, Christians will say, ‘Let’s celebrate.’ However, thinking of getting enlightened and finding God is not something you hear from people.

This is because a lot of people in this world today are from the category of those who leapt towards the modelled luxuries of the world. But among those people who are craving the luxuries of the world, there has been a group of people who have already enjoyed the Divine Nearness. They enjoyed divine love even before their entry into this world. They are the people of love, peace and divinity.

This message of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is to facilitate those who seek love of God no matter what religion they come from – regardless of whether or not they believe in any religion. This mission of HDE Gohar Shahi is to help out those who are blindfoldedly following shadows in search for God. 

It has been centuries since the last man journeyed on the path of God. For centuries now, people have sought asylum in the temples, mosques, churches and got themselves engaged in whatever form of worship they were given to do.

You may feel something very important is lacking in your life and you think Islam, Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism will fill the gap. If you go to a temple, church or mosque for this reason and you find solace, do not settle for it! This unreal solace may be coming from Satan.

Remember that God is not easily pleased.

If you find solace in a mosque or a temple, it may be an evil projection; that solace is to stop you from searching for God. You will not see God sitting in a mosque or temple and you will never find Jesus in the church. Make sure your journey does not stop in those worship places!  

There is no highway that leads to God, but there is a small tunnel beneath your body.  

Mosques, temples and churches are highways; if you are in search for God, avoid the highways. You want a Goharian channel which will put you through that tunnel. The tunnel starts from your heart. Very discreet is this spiritual journey; nobody will know that you are travelling.

It is so discreet that sometimes even you’ll [doubt] whether or not you are travelling because it is the journey of your spirits. It is not done by your body. Your body is like an outfit [for your souls], nothing else. 

The devil had developed an enormous amount of animosity against all those who want to go through this tunnel. If you are not using the tunnel and want to journey on the highways, you are safe. The devil has no problem; he will say, ‘Go on. You will never find your destination. You will keep circling around these worship places.’

It is the devil’s job to stop people from going to God. Whether you are lost at the cinema, nightclub or in the mosque, to him it is equal. As long as you are heedless of God or of the way that leads one to God, the devil is perfectly fine with that. In fact, he is pleased because he doesn’t have to do overtime.  

I recently spoke about how and why a vast majority of Muslims in Pakistan oppose HDE Gohar Shahi without reason. It is all negative [propaganda]; they do it to save their own skin. The people who purport to be religious leaders there are businessmen who are selling religions and God’s name. They are making a mockery out of the religion.

The reason why we have to put up with a lot of undue and unearned opposition from some people is because we talk about the tunnel. It is because we secretly transport hearts to God. Perhaps it is called ‘mysticism’ because it is hidden.

From someone’s physical features, one cannot tell if somebody is really travelling towards God. It is not you, it is your heart that travels the journey.

The good thing is, with the help of Live Stream, Youtube and Facebook now the message of peace, love and truth will reach common people. In no time, the message of HDE Gohar Shahi will take the world by storm! This is divine, unstoppable magic. This is the magic of love.

One fundamental difference between man and God must be understood by [people of] all religions. As a human being, you only bear the divine image; this is what you were created upon by God. You are only the divine image and you are imperfect.

You will become a perfect human being when the divine image that you have been created upon will be filled with the divine characteristics. The divine characteristics do not come about by reading holy books.

The message of HDE Gohar Shahi is very precise, surgical and technical. HDE Gohar Shahi understands that you loving God and God loving you has nothing to do with your body – so why [involve] the bodies? This is how the message of HDE Gohar Shahi is clinical. He is not going to waste his time or your time.

HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘It is not about the purification of your body. There is nothing wrong with your body. What you need to purify is your heart. Even if you stand under a stream of water for any length of time, the water will never reach your heart. You cannot purify the heart with water.’  

In order to purify your heart, you need your heart to invoke upon God with the name of his person. You cannot see God because your eyes are physical and God’s existence is ethereal. This is what the Quran said. However you will see him with the eye that God has given to every single human being so that they can see him. That eye is behind your physical eyes; it is your third eye (Latifa-e-Ana).  

Most Muslims believe that Prophet Mohammad is the greatest of all prophets, but it is a pity that they do not know how [he is so great]. For example, if a cricket team has the best coach in the world yet they lose every match, [they shouldn’t] be proud of their coach. The way Muslims are being humiliated all over the world gives a message.

[I have a question for Muslims]: although your prophet is one of the greatest prophets, what did you get from him? Do you know why was he one of the greatest ones? He is one of the greatest because no other prophet before him was able to see God; he was the only one. Through the spiritual mediumship of Prophet Mohammad, whoever was able to see God is great. How many Muslims can say today that they have seen God? If you tell a Muslim that you have seen God, the most probable reaction will be frowning, inflation of the nostrils and [an exclamation of], ‘Nobody can see God, why are you saying this?’

HDE Gohar Shahi has come to offer any deserving or undeserving human soul to come and learn the knowledge which will enable them to see God, [no matter what religion] they come from. They may be a Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jew, etc. This is the divine bounty from HDE Gohar Shahi to see God. The divine mechanism and spiritual methodology is non-religious. It is purely spiritual.

You don’t have to adopt a religion in order to see God today. This is an unprecedented, pioneering offer and an immaculate message.

It is unbelievably true. The reason why people don’t find it to be true is because it has never happened before in history. We are celebrating all prophet’s days and we are celebrating all religious festivals and this is to give everybody a message that we respect everybody. We want everybody to become part of this divine circle.

The Final Revolution
27th November 2016|Articles

The Final Revolution

The Final Revolution

Spirituality is accepted among all religions. However, every spiritual league of people seems to have a different perception about spirituality. Why do people who reject religions, adopt spirituality?

I have attended mind and body expos in many different countries of the world, including the USA, Canada, Holland, United Kingdom, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. I have met with thousands of people and spoken to many individuals who call themselves spiritualists.

The United States of America is a pioneer country in many fields. For example, there are many international American fast food chains such as KFC, TGI Fridays, Applebee’s, Chili’s and Pizza Hut. These companies made a fortune selling processed food.

American society got tired of eating processed foods. They grew bigger in size, so then [began] the trend of eating organic food. When they started getting bigger, they started exercising and thus gym goers began increasing in number.

Then spirituality was introduced and people fell for it. Many dozens of Hindu gurus came from India and they started to give lectures on spirituality. At the same time, they started to sell ‘spiritual’ products. For example, ‘Yogi Tea,’ which has nothing to do with yoga. A message was given by these spiritualists: for inner peace, peace of mind and relaxation, adopt spirituality. Yoga was declared to be a spiritual practice.

When I learnt about it, I was shocked. For the first time in my life, I was able to distinguish between this version of spirituality that I encountered in Edmonton, Canada. I sat down there in that expo booth and I wrote an article.

God is completely forgotten in this brand of spirituality. A deceptive concept has been hammered into the brains of innocent people in America. [They were told], ‘Your ego is your God. Take care of your ego and love yourself.’ There was no space for God.

I am not speaking in favour of any religion.

When Lord Jesus Christ publicly appears before everybody and wants a group of people to count on [to] go for Armageddon and defeat the Antichrist, will any of these spiritualists recognise and help Jesus?

I was shocked when Christians came to me and said, ‘We thought you were a spiritualist, but you are a religious man.’

I replied ‘How?’

They said, ‘You have the image of Lord Jesus Christ.’

I said, ‘So what?’

They said, ‘Jesus represents a religion, we don’t believe in any religion.’

I thought that there is a huge acceptance of spirituality among these people, but when I learnt what spirituality they have in mind, I was disturbed because with this concept of spirituality, they are not going to be able to love Jesus Christ.

With this brand of spirituality they will never seek God, let alone loving God.

The gurus who came from India have played havoc with the minds of people. Under the label of spirituality, there have been sexual scandals. It is not a secret anymore. Sexuality was labelled as spirituality.

When we started to tell people what spirituality really is, they were surprised to a degree where they were in a state of confusion [as to whether to believe us, or what they were told by the gurus from India].

We practise, propagate and project the purest form of spirituality.

We understand that, as the root word of spirituality is ‘spirit’, therefore, spirituality is to do with the awakening, enlightenment and purgation of the spirits.

Meditation is not about visualising a garden or visualising yourself flying. Meditation is a spiritual state in which your spirit is powerful enough to leave the body and make a spiritual journey; it is when it can successfully arrive at the realm where it belongs.

Upon these spiritual lines, one can be able to enter into the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is not a building or a city. The Kingdom of God is inside you. Your heart is the temple of God and this is where the Kingdom will be established. This is where the King will come and sit in your heart.

The Revolution of Love

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Towards the end times, the Sun will rise from the West.’

Like many other traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, the Muslims took it the wrong way. They are literally waiting for the Sun to rise from Seattle, USA, rather than Japan. This Prophetic Tradition is not about the [physical] Sun; it is about the Sun of God’s love, the Sun of spirituality — and it is rising!

The world has seen many different types of revolutions: communism, socialism, industrialism and capitalism. Now humanity is becoming weary of all these different types of slogans. Capitalism has manifested its ugliness and beauty. Communism has been rejected widely all over the world. Industrialism gave rise to capitalism, but the most horrible gift it gave was global warming [and pollution].

The world has seen all different types of revolutions and is now suffering in divisions. What humanity needs now is a final revolution: the revolution of love, the revolution of spirituality in which all the importance will be given to human beings.

With the help of science, we have gadgets such as iPhones and cameras. However, the ugliness of a human being remains the same.

Human beings have not progressed an inch. What we have worked on is our surroundings and the instruments we use.

Although we fly aeroplanes, we cannot fly. You combine Metal, gas and fuel and make an aeroplane that flies. However, you are greater than those ingredients you combined to make the aeroplane. You are a human being and you are the best of all creatures, so why can’t you fly?

You invented the telescope, but never worked on your eyes.

You have souls inside you, specially dedicated to improving your sight. With that improvement in your sight through spirituality, you won’t only be able to see the Moon or Mars, but you will be able to see God beyond this sky, the Milky Way, the realms and all these planets.

This is how far you can see with the help of the spiritual eye.

Now is the time to discover your obscure calibre. Now is the time to explore the divine potentials and credentials in you.

Explore yourself and know what capabilities have you been endowed by God. If you utilise all the spiritual potentials conferred onto you by God, you will understand one day that, ‘I am just a little lesser than God.’

You are in the State of Oblivion. You have ignored your own self and given more attention and importance to what is around you. What could you be if all the credentials God has conferred on you are utilised the right way? In order to do all this, we need a spiritual revolution.

This is why Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ have joined hands. Together, Lord Jesus and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will bring about this unprecedented, pioneering, rapturous, and amiable revolution of love.

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?
17th November 2016|Articles

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

‘Mr Younus, Elon Musk said that there is a chance that we are living in a computer simulation. Are we? And are there multiple universes?’ — Mir Shahmir

It is a very delicate point. The world or the universe itself is not simulated by a computer. However, with the help of computer science, we can do a lot of things.

In a sense, science and technology have advanced to a degree where you can do things which may appear to be a miracle.

For example, we now have test-tube babies. If a woman doesn’t want to marry or touch a man, but she wants a baby, [she can have it by in vitro fertilisation]. She could take sperm from a donor, which could be injected into her body. This is what people can do today.

Science has advanced to a degree now where scientists are trying to outclass God.

It is a proven fact: even in the past, whenever — with the help of science, technology and whatever knowledge they had — human beings tried to interfere with the acts of God, God destroyed them.

There is a story about ancient Greek people in the Holy Book, The Religion of God (Divine Love). God commanded Gabriel to go and destroy them by flooding, so they quickly made walls of glass. They were saved because they were able to hear God. So then God asked Gabriel to destroy them by stoning. The glass was broken by the stones and they were destroyed.

You can’t play smart with God because he has all the power.

This intellect you have reflects God’s intelligence. So you may conclude that whatever you think, God will think along the same line. What you have in your head as intellect, it reflects the divine intellect.

People are now trying to interfere with God and his acts.

For example, let’s talk about cloning. The thing is, scientists can do anything, but what about the soul inside it? Obviously, as a result of that cloning process, there will be a living being identical [to the original], and that living being will definitely have terrestrial souls. However, there will not be any celestial souls, which will mean that the clone will not have the same level of intelligence as [the original has].* It will be deprived of emotions — hatred, love and everything else. What is the use of producing such a thing which is incapable of many human traits?

People are trying to be smarter than God, however they can never be. God is a genius as compared to us. We think he is a genius because he can do things we cannot. It is not possible for someone created by God to be [smarter than him]; if you were created by God, God would not give you the same level of intelligence he possesses himself. If somebody has more intelligence than God has, then that somebody must be from the Unseen World.

The way His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals secrets pertaining to the creation of this universe, to the creation of humankind, to the different species of Adam, to the different levels of intellectuality and to the different levels of spirituality — it is mind-boggling.

Revealing upon human beings what has been kept hidden by God and then declaring them to be the most obscure secrets of God — this can only come from HDE Gohar Shahi.

By far, HDE Gohar Shahi has exhibited through His acts and practice of love that whatever level of intelligence He has exhibited is far greater than the core intelligence of God.

This universe is simulated by a computer to a certain degree. But if you become divine and enlightened, you move your fingers and you will move mountains.

Forget about computer simulation. When you become a humble servant of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, then you will simulate the world with your finger.

Multiple Universes

For the sake of answering your question, I will say, ‘Yes there are many different types of universe.’ But then again, you’re not able to practically go and witness it, so what is the point in discussing it? Unless you’re planning to apply to HDE Gohar Shahi to become His servant — because only then can you possibly witness existence of other types of universe.

We’re living on a single little planet, Earth, and we do not intend to explore every single planet that is floating in this universe. We have not been given the potential of migrating from one planet to another. Man set his foot on the Moon only after the Final Hour, when all the living beings on the Moon were destroyed by God. As long as people lived there, human beings who lived on this planet were not able to go and witness their counterparts [on the Moon].

We can only fly from Pakistan to India, India to Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka to America, Canada, Australia etc. We cannot possibly migrate from one planet to another, especially the planets which are currently inhabited by human beings like ourselves. The planet we are living on is not a secure place. Countries of this planet only think of their own safety. However [other] planets have been made secure but their inhabitants.

Migration from one universe to another is not physically possible for you. I am not saying that it is not physically possible at all; it is possible provided you have the means of travel and ability to switch from your type of oxygen to their type of oxygen. But you don’t have this facility and ability.

On this planet, water is made of two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. Maybe [on another planet], there are three molecules hydrogen with oxygen which forms water. The chemical equation of our water is H2O; maybe on Mars, it is H3O.

It is interesting that the Sun is the ultimate source of hydrogen; the Sun is shining on the seas and rivers. Even then, the water does not absorb more than two molecules of hydrogen from the sun-rays. This is because the oxygen of this world has only two ports of radicals; maybe oxygen [of another planet] is different and has four ports of radicals.

This universe is vast and it is such a shame that you cannot travel. Some people are born in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan; they live all their lives in those countries and they die. There are still some people in India and Pakistan haven’t seen a train, let alone traveling in an airplane. We live in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, etc. even then, I never imagined myself traveling in a spaceship and going to the Moon.

Hopping into other universes is least possible even to imagine. However [things change] when you are a disciple of HDE Gohar Shahi. Firstly, you do not become a disciple by simply saying that you want to or [paying a fee].

You become HDE Gohar Shahi’s disciple when your soul is infused with HDE Gohar Shahi and you become a citizen of the extra-celestial Unseen World. That is the culmination of all that exists. When you reach the culmination of all that exists today, then migrating from one universe to another is child’s play.

When you reach the culmination of the farthest place that can exist — something you can’t even imagine — then migration from one universe to another is not a problem. Right now, you are caged by gravitational force. As a result of gravity, you can’t go anywhere. Speed is the resistance against gravity. You apply force and power; then you [move]. What happens when you go into space? There is no gravity; [so if] you don’t apply force, you just float.

Let me just end it on this note: it is possible to simulate the universe partially with the help of a [scientifically advanced] computer, but it would not be a full throttle simulation. Secondly, there are different types of universe — but then, seeing is believing. I can tell you many things, but if you’re not able to witness it, it is like fiction to you.

If you become worthy spiritually, you can travel from one universe to another. However, do not forget: the Quran has mentioned that whatever is between the skies and earth belongs to God; so God is only talking about this universe. It will [probably] never happen — but for the sake of answering your question, if you happen to set your foot in another universe, do not forget that that universe has a different creator.

Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of India, not the entire world. The United Kingdom has a different Prime Minister. When you go to Canada, they have a different Prime Minister. When you set your foot in another universe, you’ll have to find out who its creator is.

There are different types of universe but all these different planets in this universe were created by God. Quran 4:131 states, ‘To God belongs whatever is between the land and skies.’ This is about this particular universe that we are living in.

*According to the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, a human being is a compound creature made up of multiple spirits. The body is made of terrestrial souls which are responsible for things like its growth and appearance. The terrestrial souls have nothing to do with the higher realms.

What makes humanity different from animals is the presence of the celestial souls in them, which bring in them human emotions and sense. The celestial souls are what give man the potential to discover divinity. Learn all about the celestial spirits in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential
1st November 2016|Articles

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Self-realisation is a very profound subject, because your Self has different dimensions. You are not a single soul living; you’re a multi-spiritual being. Discovery of each soul has its own respective realisation, so self-realisation is a multi-layered realisation.

Not everybody is fully aware of who he is. They may have gone through vigorous spiritual austerities and acquired higher stages and statuses in spirituality, however when it comes to measuring the volume of self-realisation, it has always been incomplete.

In self-realisation, you start with your Carnal Self (Nafs) and you purify it. Then you come to know the purpose and use of this soul in you. You learn exactly what you should do to make it functional in your body.

Each soul has different functions. Some functions help you with your physical body and other spiritual functions will help you progress in your spiritual journey.

Knowing what functions one respective soul has is the realisation of what you have. For example, you may have a car, but if you don’t know what you use the car for, you don’t have car-realisation.

The Carnal Self is in your body but you do not know its functions. Realisation begins when you activate this particular soul that lies inactive in you, when you’re fully aware of its abilities and capabilities; not just that, but also you know how to master your Carnal Self, how to use it and how to perform spiritual journeys with it.

Realisation will go further up once you have attained the utter spiritual purity and cleansing of your Carnal Self. From there, you progress toward the purification of your spiritual heart. Having purified and revived the spiritual faculty of the heart, you will then come to know its functions.

Most Sufis only know about revival, awakening and enlightenment.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi doesn’t only talk about the enlightenment, revival and purification; Lord Ra Riaz also teaches the functions of the spiritual heart. He tells you exactly what you can do with the help of the spiritual heart.

For example, Lord Ra Riaz oftentimes talks about the first function of the spiritual heart as being a telephone operator when it is fully enlightened. You will be able to be in contact with God via one of the functions of the spiritual heart.

Your heart will become a mouthpiece with which you will be able to communicate with God.

Realisation is about obtaining enlightenment, purification, revival and on top of that, the usage. If you know what it is but you cannot use it, what is the point? In my understanding, the spiritual calibre of knowing and utilising the functions is realisation of the self.

There are seven souls in you. You should know what each soul can do for you, how each soul will push you towards God and what level of spiritual journey can be performed with what individual soul.

All these souls have their own functions; becoming a master and being able to learn all the functions is complete realisation of the self. You are not confined to your Carnal Self; your main self is your soul.

You should know what your soul can do, what your spiritual heart can do, what Sirri (The Most Obscure) can do and what Akhfah (The Most Hidden) can do.

Revival and enlightenment is one thing, but then to be able to use the souls well according to their purpose is true realisation.

For example, if your Akhfah is enlightened and you also know the functions, then you don’t need a telephone. You’ll just think about someone, you’ll speak and that person will hear you no matter where he is.

There were no loudspeakers in the past. People say that there used to be 70 000 attendees who would come to the lectures of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (a renowned Sufi). There was no system of loudspeakers or sound system; even then, every single person in his attendance would clearly hear his speech. People declared it a miracle. It is a miracle, but nothing just happens without a system, even miracles. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani would lessen the usage of his tongue and increase the amount of his Akhfah; so on a distance, people would hear him well. However, this was a one-time miracle.

We have seen more miracles than this in every speech delivered by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. There was no sound system, yet Lord Ra Riaz would be speaking and [His voice] would be echoing. This was the Akhfah.

Most spiritualists from different religions only know about enlightening and reviving the souls; they are not aware of what you can do with the souls. Through the Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love, we learned the functions of the souls.

To summarise: there are seven respective souls in the body. Enlightening, awakening and purifying them, making them functional and reaching your destination with the help of these functions is the main thing. This is complete self-realisation.

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.
