Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar Ki Tashreeh (Part 2)
5th February 2017|LecturesVideos

Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar Ki Tashreeh (Part 2)

Younus AlGohar explains how Dhikr-e-Qalb is the key to fulfilling a famous phrase in Islam: Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar.

Watch Part 1 Here.

Main points:
– Dhikr-e-Qalb (Invocation of the Heart) is only granted with God’s will. A Prophetic Tradition states that whoever says the Declaration of Faith in their last moments will enter Paradise; when you have Dhikr-e-Qalb, your spiritual heart repeats God’s name constantly even after you die. It is a rosary that doesn’t stop.

– When God allows his name to enter your heart, it means he wants to make you his friend. Dhikr-e-Qalb is minor sainthood. When God sees that a person is to be his friend, he ensures that he has Dhikr-e-Qalb; the constant repetition of God’s name in his heart ensures that he will never be heedless of God. Amar Bil Maroof means to push towards goodness; this is what a heart enlightened with God’s name does. Such a heart pulls one towards God. In a verse of the Quran, God says that heedlessness is directly linked to hearts being deprived of God’s Dhikr (invocation).

– All the celestial books relate to a particular name of God. Bring Ya Rehman in your heart and you’ll be given understanding of Moses’s religion and book revealed upon him. Invocation of the name Ya Quddus will result in the verses of the original Bible being revealed to your heart. Bring Ism-e-Allah in your heart and the entire Quran will be put into your heart. Similarly if you are granted the name Ya Muhammad you can distinguish between authentic and inauthentic Prophetic Traditions.

– Dhikr-e-Qalb is the key to making man completely obedient to God. When Noor (divine energy) produced from God’s name enlightens the entire body, the man submits to God in total. This is the rank of a Momin (true believer). A saint is one who has prepared his souls, and through the medium of Prophet Mohammad has reached Moqam-e-Mehmood. He witnesses God’s splendour after which a reflectory image of God comes onto his heart. Then God looks at his heart over 300 times a day and theophanies fall upon him. A single theophany of God burns seven major sins. Those in the company of such a saint will come under those theophanies and be inclined towards goodness automatically.

– Nahi Anil Munkir means to stop from bad things. The root of all evil in you is your Nafs (Carnal Self). By stopping its Naar (negative energy) intake and giving it Noor, you’ll stop it from badness. When the satan inside you has become obedient to God through this method, you won’t be inclined towards doing wrong.

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

Khudayi Fassad Aur Aloohiyat-e-GOHAR SHAHI

Read the full article here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Martaba-e-Nabuwat Aur Risalat Zaat-e-Muhammad Mein Yakja Kese?
19th January 2017|LecturesVideos

Martaba-e-Nabuwat Aur Risalat Zaat-e-Muhammad Mein Yakja Kese?

What is the difference between messengerhood and prophethood, and why is it important to know in the case of Prophet Mohammad? Read the full transcript of this video in Urdu here.

Main points:

– In terms of prophethood, all prophets are equal in the eyes of God. However, there is more to Prophet Mohammad than his prophethood. For example, the body of Adam was created with the clay from Paradise while Prophet Mohammad’s body was created with God’s light (Noor). God didn’t declare for any other prophet besides Prophet Mohammad, ‘I have sent you as mercy for all mankind.’

– Messengers are sent to establish a religion while prophets are sent to reform what has been adulterated within their religions. Prophet Mohammad is both a messenger and a prophet. After Prophet Mohammad, God declared that there would be no more prophets. Prophet Mohammad’s benevolence as a messenger was granted to immediate followers while his benevolence as a prophet was reserved to be distributed to the saints of his nation as need arose. The saints who received this benevolence would reform the religion as prophets had done in other religions; they enlightened the hearts of Muslims.

– Prophet Mohammad received two types of revelation: one as a messenger and one as a prophet. The revelation related to his prophethood was not used immediately but kept for when the religion would become subject to mischief. Mujaddid Alif Thani, the Grand Reformer, came 1000 years after establishment of Islam. He received a small amount of benevolence from Prophet Mohammad’s rank as a prophet. The rest of the knowledge and blessings of Prophet Mohammad’s prophethood was kept for Imam Mehdi. A Prophetic Tradition states that Imam Mehdi would renew the religion completely after Islam would come to an end.

– There is even more to Prophet Mohammad than him being a prophet and messenger. He possessed two extra souls which originate from God: Tifl-e-Noorie and Jussa-e-Taufiq-e-Ilahi. They relate to Faqr (spiritual poverty) and Ishq (rapturous love) respectively. Different Companions of Prophet Mohammad were granted benevolence of either Faqr or Ishq. Furthermore, Prophet Mohammad’s soul was created to witness God’s splendour; there, his soul says God’s name and God says its name. His subtlety of Ana, called Mehmood, also has its own station.

Tasleeb-e-Eesa Aur Ahmadiyon Ka Aqeeda
13th January 2017|LecturesVideos

Tasleeb-e-Eesa Aur Ahmadiyon Ka Aqeeda

Younus AlGohar responds to the Ahmadi sect’s claims that Jesus did not ascend to the higher realms and that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani was Jesus.

Main points:

– In the Quran, God stated very clearly that neither was Jesus killed nor crucified; rather God raised him towards himself. God did however say that a doubt was created for people at the time of Jesus.

– There are many words in all language which will have different meanings depending on the connotation. In Quran 3:55 where God mentions ascension of Jesus, the word ‘mutawafee’ is used; many of those who have done translation of the Holy Quran have taken this word to mean ‘death’. The root word of mutawafee is ‘wafa’, which means ‘to complete [something].’ When Jesus is mentioned by God in this scenario, God takes Jesus’s full name: Jesus Son of Mary. This title is mentioned only when God talks about Jesus’s body. In other words, God was saying to Jesus, ‘I will raise you completely.’

– If mutawafee meant ‘to give death’ as the Ahmadis claim, then why did God say to Jesus, ‘I will raise you [towards me]’? The Ahmadis argue that it refers to the ascension of Jesus’s soul – but everyone’s soul ascends when they die. Why did God mention this specifically about Jesus? They also may say that God was talking about the ascension of Jesus’s body, but this argument would be nonsensical. When the body of Prophet Mohammad, the Leader of Prophets, is in Medina, why would God choose to ascend the (dead) body of Jesus? What would be the point?

– Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani cannot claim to be Jesus Son of Mary, because his own mother was someone other than Mary. God ascended Jesus Son of Mary towards himself. Prophet Mohammad mentioned that Jesus Son of Mary would return (meaning in his own body) therefore there is no way Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani could be Jesus. This is a lie projected by Ahmadis to support their belief system.

Youm-e-Ghaibat: GOHAR SHAHI La Fani Hain
26th December 2016|LecturesVideos

Youm-e-Ghaibat: GOHAR SHAHI La Fani Hain

Younus AlGohar discusses the occultation of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi and reveals important divine secrets on Occultation Day 2016.

Main points:

– When Occultation happened, most followers of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi were not fully aware of His rank. In the book, ‘The Religion of God (Divine Love)’, Younus AlGohar had written a preface explaining that HDE Gohar Shahi is the Awaited Imam Mehdi, Messiah and Kalki Avatar; this was included in the book with the permission of HDE Gohar Shahi.

– HDE Gohar Shahi’s image in the Holy Black Stone has been providing salvation to the entire humanity for centuries. Only when you are aware of the importance and value of something will you care for it in the appropriate manner.

– HDE Gohar Shahi is immortal. When the Day of Occultation came every year, rather than crying, we would promote the teachings and tell people about the eminence of HDE Gohar Shahi. The people who oppose us, they oppose us on the basis of our teachings.

– God comes from the Unseen World. He created this universe and all creation within it. In order to reach God, human beings obtain Invocation of the Heart, in which the constant remembrance of God in the heart generates His light and takes one towards God. Because God himself never came upon Earth, his name is the intermediary used to take man towards himself. However, HDE Gohar Shahi came on Earth; therefore seekers can now obtain benevolence from His images.

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

Thoughts on Extra-Celestial Secrets

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This was a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech on the auspicious occasion of Lord Ra Riaz Day (Jashan-e-Riaz). It was first posted on his Medium page.

Why did GOHAR SHAHI Come to this World?
6th December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Why did GOHAR SHAHI Come to this World?

Why is it so that His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi came into this world – a world created by God – and had to go through the entire human journey? Why did His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi bother to come into this world? HDE Gohar Shahi is the Grand God (Rab al Arbab): the creator of all and lord of all.

The decision that HDE Gohar Shahi made, that of coming into this world which was created by God, is the necessity. Necessity to quench the spiritual thirst of countless souls, especially the outcry of souls which remained thirsty even after they attained high class spiritual status.

They found God and they were in very proximate audience with God, as much as it was divinely possible. However, all that spiritual attainment did not suffice their spiritual thirst. They were still yearning for an extra divine, rapturous love and rapturous relation with a true deity. Those who loved God and found the way to be in his proximate audience did acquire some sort of love and nearness to God, however they were not given to know God fully.

Most things about God have always been obscure. Many things about his character and demeanour haven’t been given to discover. Exploration of God’s character and profound knowledge of the being of God became the topmost priority of those who found God. They wanted to know more about God, but there have always been restrictions.

When you love somebody, you want to know everything about them, but that is not the case with God. There is not much that you will be given to know about God. Not much is on offer by God about him.

On contrary to what he practically does, God has been recorded to have said that he created the creation so that he should be known. He loved to be known, however nobody knows him.

For millions of years, messengers and prophets who came into this world tried teaching humanity how to become obedient and submissive to God, and how to be a dedicated worshipper to God. However, they did not say anything about the character of God, love of God, the shape of God, the face of God, his demeanour or his emotional bubble. As far as my intelligence works, I understand they didn’t say much about this because they themselves don’t know much about it. [For example], when I know something, I don’t make a secret out of it. Even if I want to, my tongue and my lips become disobedient even to myself; I can’t hide it.

Proclamation of love of God is very easy. However, to obtain God’s love has always been a mystery. Whoever found God’s love, he found it through mysticism.

There is love of God and at the same time, there is rapturous love of God (an extreme form of God’s love).

It is a pity that more often than it should be, God’s love has always been considered to be attached with obedience and worship to God.

When I say, ‘Being disobedient to God,’ it simply means that you do everything which, in a religion, you are not allowed to do. When you do things you are not allowed to do, you become a sinner. So in a way, if you continue to sin – meaning that you are disobedient to God, you don’t worship God and you do not follow any religion – and still you claim to love God, nobody will [believe you].

Love is real, however, love has been hidden under thick layers of newly fabricated Islamic/Quranic mythology.  [People say], ‘Look at him. He doesn’t even go to the mosque. He is a sinner and he claims to love God, come on.’ This is their attitude. If you ask an Islamic scholar of today, ‘Moulana, tell me how do you love God?’ he will have no answer.

I did not know what is love. The only battlefield which has been given to [men] upon which they can practise love is a woman. Before [people started openly loving members of the same sex] men used to love women and women used to love men. At one point in time, about 15-20 years ago, I used to think that love is a taboo thing. In my house and family, we couldn’t even say the word love. This was because, in Pakistani society where Islamic Sharia was strictly, mysteriously followed, you would only talk about worship, recitation of the Quran, growing a beard and fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. When a beautiful girl passed by, you were supposed to lower your gaze – and we did that. Every time a beautiful woman would pass by, we would force ourselves to at least lower our eyes, but still the heart would think about her. As long as I lived in Pakistan, I was not able to grasp the meaning of God’s love.

The first time we heard about God’s love was from HDE Gohar Shahi.

In the late 1990’s, HDE Gohar Shahi was visiting Bangladesh. His Divine Eminence stayed at somebody’s house; that person was a very strict Muslim who asked HDE Gohar Shahi, ‘We never heard of God’s love. [We have been told to] go to a mosque, offer prayers five times a day, serve your parents; through the Halal way, earn your bread and butter for your children – and that’s it. Worship should be enough. What is love?’

His Divine Eminence said to him, ‘Alright. [Imagine that] your wife cooks food for you every day, washes your clothes every day, takes care of you day and night and raises your children. She does everything, but if she said to you that she loved somebody else, would you be happy for the services she provided you with?’

He said, ‘No.’

HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘You want to worship God. The moment God finds out that you love somebody else, that worship will be thrown at your face by God. This is how important it is to love God.’

It is true. If your wife does everything but she doesn’t love you, that is the end of the story. She washed your clothes, cooked food for you, raised your children and did every service to comfort you and please you; but the moment you heard she didn’t love you, every type of service went down the drain. Similarly, you can be doing anything to please God but the moment God finds out you love someone else, no worship will be acceptable in the eyes of God. This is how important it is for you to love God.

The irony is that we have heard about God’s love, but nobody tells us how to love God.

Although Jesus talked about God’s love, no messenger or prophet taught human beings the procedure through which one can truly love God.

Muslims believe that Prophet Mohammad is the leader of all prophets and that he is the best prophet. So what Prophet Mohammad said is the bottom line [for them]. Knowing God couldn’t be easier than what Prophet Mohammad told people. According to the Quran, about God’s love, there is no procedure given to human beings with the help of which they can attain God’s love. However, if you wanted to love God, all you need to do as prescribed by the Quran is to follow and spiritually imitate the Prophet Mohammad.

‘Tell them, “If they want to love God, follow me, imitate me.” In return, I will love them.’ – Quran 3:31

Imitate here has a spiritual connotation. Imitate doesn’t mean mimicry; it means to spiritually follow, do as he says and do as he asks you to do. Do not as he does.

All you have in the Quran is that you follow Prophet Mohammad and in return, God will love you. However, that is one-way traffic. How many people successfully followed Prophet Mohammad and imitated him spiritually? If somebody did, even then they do not have the procedure to love God. As a result of the fact that you follow Prophet Mohammad, in return, God will love you. But still you don’t love God; God will love you.

So no religion tells us the secretive procedure that will allow you to be able to love God. God had sent 124 000 different prophets and messengers already. Prophet Mohammad was the last of all the prophets and messengers. So God has tried his best but even after the last prophet, Prophet Mohammad, humanity is still struggling and they do not know how to love God.

There was a sense of necessity for the Grand God to enter into this world and tell humanity the procedure which will set you free from requiring to follow any prophet or messenger.

If the procedure of love was to be attained by a messenger or prophet, then it would have been [obtained] from Prophet Mohammad who was the last prophet. However, even Prophet Mohammad did not render the procedure of attaining love. Now, all the prophets have been sent. Even the grandeur of all prophethood and messengerhood, Prophet Mohammad, is back in the pavilion. When the last and best of all prophets did not give us the procedure to attain God’s love, who else do you think will give us the procedure of love?

Now was time for either God to come upon Earth and teach humanity the methodology of loving God. Or if he doesn’t want to come, then somebody who is even more passionate about human beings obtaining God’s love should come.

Maybe God didn’t care, but HDE Gohar Shahi has shown us that he cares.

He didn’t care for what people will think of him to be, but he cared for us. He is here and now we know what the procedure is of obtaining God’s love.

The place of love is your heart and your heart is ruled by a dedicated soul. You need to awaken that dedicated soul; the moment it is awakened, your heart will begin to have the spiritual faculty which will bring you closer to God. That spiritual faculty will connect you with God and will make your heart a true recipient of God’s light and theophanies. This is how you will obtain God’s love.

This was a necessity. It didn’t happen even after all the messengers and prophets have been sent. God doesn’t want to come, but God had already announced that in the end, the Religion of God will be established. Prophet Mohammad had already left 1400 years ago. The Religion of God had still not been established; God doesn’t want to come so who else will come and establish love?

What HDE Gohar Shahi is doing was not possible for any messenger or prophet. This is why it never happened. It is now happening because HDE Gohar Shahi is here.

Poetry for Jashan-e-Riaz (Lord Ra Riaz Day)

Poetry for Jashan-e-Riaz (Lord Ra Riaz Day)

On the 25th of November, admirers of Younus AlGohar’s spiritual guide, Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, celebrated Jashan-e-Riaz (Lord Ra Riaz Day), which marks the day the world was first blessed with Lord Ra Riaz’s presence.

In honour of this auspicious occasion, the following poem was written by a member of Mehdi Foundation International.

Jashan-e-Riaz: The Day of Riaz

It is the most auspicious day of the year
A day we celebrate and revere

When the Lord revealed His comely face
And made this world a magical place

He came in the guise of the Awaited One
Recognise His image on the Moon and Sun!

He granted us His glorious name
Making all hearts love the same

Ra Riaz – the most powerful name of all
For every human, big or small

The religion of love was introduced
Divine light was in the hearts produced

The Day of Riaz, always remember
Comes on the 25th of November

Jashan-e-Riaz is a time to reflect
It is our heart we must not neglect

Though the decorations are a pretty sight
They’re of no use if your heart is not bright

Light up your heart with the name of the Lord
And make your heart the Lord’s abode

Your heart will then shine brighter than a star
A star the Lord can see from afar

Then every day will be a celebration
As you become a member of the Lord’s nation!
