#ManchesterAttack – Are We Doing Enough?

#ManchesterAttack – Are We Doing Enough?

After every terrorist attack whereby innocent lives are lost and the threat level is raised, everybody gets down to their computer desks and sends messages of condolences. They pray for people. This is not going to help and it is not enough.

Identify the problem. The first step toward any prevention is to identify your enemy; identify the criminal.

We feel a bit relaxed when we are told that ISIS is in Iraq and Syria and they are more than 2000 miles away from our homes. We must not forget that ISIS is just an organisation; it is nothing in itself. The main thing is the ideology behind all these terrorist organisations who are shedding blood every day: Wahhabism.

When such a terrorist attack takes place, the entire Muslim community has to suffer the backlash and repercussions after it. Every Muslim is suspected to be a terrorist. [The terrorists] are making every Muslim’s life difficult.

Islam does not teach terrorism or violence.

According to the Koran 5:32, ‘Killing one human being is equal to killing the entire humanity.’ Suicide is also strictly prohibited in Islam.

Who could understand more than the founder of Islam, Prophet Mohammad? There was a companion of the Prophet Mohammad who was fighting against non-believers. During this battle, he was severely wounded and Prophet Mohammad was showing all sorts of sympathies for him. Later on, he was in so much pain that he was not able to bear it. So, he took a decision that destroyed him: he killed himself.

When the news was brought to Prophet Mohammad, Prophet Mohammad said, ‘I am not going to say prayers [for] him; he has lost his faith. I deprive him of my salvation.’ This is how detestable an act of suicide bombing is in Islam.

Those who think they know Islam, I ask them to study the Koran and Prophet Mohammad’s life well. Prophet Mohammad did not hurt or hate anybody; he was sent into this world as blessings for the entire humanity [Koran 21:107].

There was a Jewish woman who used to throw rubbish upon Prophet Mohammad every time he would pass by her area. Prophet Mohammad did not change his way and he continued to go through the same area. One day, when Prophet Mohammad was passing by her house, she wasn’t there. Prophet Mohammad got worried and asked somebody, ‘Where is that woman who throws rubbish on me?’ They replied, ‘She is not feeling well.’ Prophet Mohammad went to her house and asked her, ‘How are you feeling? I was waiting for you.’ She cried and said, ‘You care about me so much even though I used to throw rubbish on you?’ Then she accepted Islam.

Islam was accepted because of Prophet Mohammad’s character. What [terrorists] are projecting to the world under the banner of Islam is not Islam; it is a bunch of lies.

Islam is not a killer religion. No matter what religion people practise — no matter whether or not they believe in God — you have no authority to kill them according to Islam.

There is a Day of Judgment when God will judge people and God will decide their fate. You cannot decide for them, because you yourself are a sinner.

Those who [kill others in the name of Islam] are enemies of humanity and Islam. According to the Koran, you cannot do such things.

All these individuals who project Wahhabism must be stopped in order to protect the country and peace-loving, law-abiding citizens of the country.

We detest any act of terrorism. Whether it is carried out under a political agenda or is religiously motivated, it is not acceptable under any circumstances.

We are raising awareness of love, peace, human value and divine values. Our hearts go out to the families of victims who lost their lives in the Manchester Attack.

To Islamists:

Whether people were singing and dancing, this is between them and God. You cannot decide for them; you have no authority. Don’t forget that God can forgive anybody; he is not going to ask you whether or not he should forgive somebody.

Don’t think Christians and Jews are Mushrikeen (polytheists). Mushrikeen are those who find a partner with God. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are Abrahamic, monotheistic faiths. They believe in one God; those who believe in one God cannot be called Mushrikeen. They believe in God and order for them to reach God, God sent them a messenger. Jesus was the messenger for Christians; Moses and Abraham were messengers for the Jews. Whether or not they have amended their books, this is between them and God. God will decide what to do; you have no authority to take anybody’s life. Those who do this are only bringing calamity and should await the torment from God.

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘You cannot be a Momin (true believer) if your neighbour goes to bed without food.’

If you don’t care about your neighbour and he sleeps without food, you are stripped of your faith. [Instead of giving them food] you are killing them — and you think you are a Momin. You are taking their lives and you still think you will enter Paradise?

Sirat-e-Mustaqeem Kiya Hai?
22nd May 2017|LecturesVideos

Sirat-e-Mustaqeem Kiya Hai?

Younus AlGohar answers a viewer’s question about Sirat-e-Mustaqeem (The Straight Path leading to God), what is the real meaning behind it and how you can obtain it.

Main Points:

— The Koran mentions Sirat-e-Mustaqeem in the very beginning, however, what it is in itself is not explained. Sirat-e-Mustaqeem is not an action you carry out in order to obtain it. Sirat-e-Mustaqeem in actuality is the obedience of your Spiritual Guide.

– Wahhabis and Deobandis try to misguide people by saying the verse in Koran which mentions Sirat-e-Mustaqeem means that one should not ask prophets or saints for help because God is enough for them. However, HDE Gohar Shahi gave the true explanation: You cannot obtain guidance without God’s help and God’s help comes in the form of saints and spiritual dignitaries.

– God has created mankind for the purpose of his worship. People are already engaged in worship so why is it that their worship will be thrown back in their faces? Why is their worship not guaranteeing them entrance to Paradise? So, which worship has God created us for? It is not the physical worship you carry out with your body. Your body is not your reality, it is your soul.

– It is the soul which is supposed to engage in worship in order to fulfil the type of worship we were created for. How does one engage the souls in worship? With the help of God which comes in the form of Spiritual Dignitaries, they are able to access our souls, enlighten them, and connect them to God. It is for such people it is said ‘Follow the path of those whom God has rewarded’.

– God’s reward does not come in the form of wealth, it is reaching the station of Seeing God. Those who have seen God and his image has been stamped on their heart, sitting in their company will enlighten your heart and the Divine Light that is generated within the heart travels towards God, another rope of Divine Light travels towards your heart from God and the point where the two ropes join together is Sirat-e-Mustaqeem.

Qasida: Kisi Ke Ishq Mein Jalna

An Urdu devotional song written and sung by Younus AlGohar.

Lyrics:
Kisi ke Ishq mein jalna
Kisi wehshat se kiya kam hai?

Ye aankhen baar-e-gham se royen
Kiya khoon-e-jigar kam hai?

Ra Ra Ra Ra Riazam Ra

Main gumra hi hon batil hon mera peisha hai ibleesi
Siwaye Riaz ke meri ye gardan kiya kahien kham hai?

Mujhe bechain rakhti hai Gohar ke lams ki khushbu
Ye aansoo ark-e-Gohar hain meri gar aankh purnam hai

Ra Ra Ra Ra Riazam Ra

Bujha do Aina-e-dil mein jalti sham-e-Gohar ko
Is hi ke kufr se kafir howa kiya ye kufar kam hai?

Ra Ra Ra Ra Riazam Ra

Na ghabra aye dil-e-nadaan tujhe ab mout aani hai
Sana-e-Riaz pe gardan kattay to tujh ko kiya gham hai?

Ra Ra Ra Ra Riazam Ra

Qatra-e-kufr-e-behr-e-Riaz mein jab zam huwa Younus
Riaz kufr hai tu ab bhala tujh ko kiya gham hai

Ra Ra Ra Ra Riazam Ra

Global Peace Through Spiritual Sciences & Divine Love

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.

Ghazwa-e-Hind
14th April 2017|LecturesVideos

Ghazwa-e-Hind

In this discourse, Younus AlGohar clarifies why it is impossible for Ghazwa-e-Hind (The Final Battle of India) to take place in this era and what Ghazwa-e-Hind actually refers to.

Main points:

– The terrorists are using Ghazwa-e-Hind mixed with Hadith (traditions of Prophet Mohammad) to spread mischief. There is no mention of killing Hindus, Sikhs or any non-Muslims in Ghazwa-e-Hind.

– The word ‘Ghazwa’ is the name given to a battle that Prophet Mohammad himself was involved in. Can the terrorists say that Prophet Mohammad is fighting alongside them? Funnily enough, the terrorists who are implementing ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ are from the Wahhabi sect of Islam; they are those who vehemently reject the eminence of Prophet Mohammad.

– When Prophet Mohammad declared that there will be an attack on Hind (India), from that time until now there have been numerous attacks on India. The attacks that happened previously, were they not mentioned in the Hadith? This Hadith was narrated for those attacks. It is not valid for this day and age.

– Ghazwa-e-Hind has already taken place. When Islamic spiritual dignitaries took the responsibility of implementing Jihad bil Nafs (Jihad against the Carnal Self) in India. Prophet Mohammad would appear and, along with the spiritual dignitaries, help with the purification of the Carnal Self of people in India. This is the Ghazwa that needed to take place and it has already happened.

Iblis Aur Shaitan Mein Farq
8th April 2017|LecturesVideos

Iblis Aur Shaitan Mein Farq

Younus AlGohar explains the real reason behind the Devil’s enmity towards Adam, how the Devil was appointed to be what he is today and what classifies as a true evil act.

Main points: – People of the world today are under the wrong impression of what a true evil act is. Religious people think those who drink alcohol or go to night clubs and casinos are engaged in evil acts. However, the fact of the matter is that neither has the Devil created night clubs or casinos, nor has he ever been seen drinking alcohol. Such acts are actually pseudo-evil. The Lord said that one who is involved in real evil acts will be a great worshipper and at the same time will bear jealousy, malice, grudge, envy etc. That is who the real Devil is.

– The Devil, in fact, was a great worshipper of God and many saints testified to his love for God. After he successfully worshipped God in every nook and cranny of the world, God promoted him to the Realm of Angels. However, sadly, this promotion of the Devil was not genuine. It was a Divine Plan. God was creating Adam Safi Allah and granting him the knowledge of eminence; he needed to make sure when Adam was descended into the world he would be faced with calamities and hurdles, therefore, the Devil was appointed.

– The Devil was purposefully shown the body of Adam, he refused to prostrate before Adam because Adam’s body was made of clay and his body was made of fire. He felt pride. However, when he found out that Adam had been granted the knowledge of eminence, which is to be absorbed by the subtleties in the breast, he felt extremely jealous. He knew that God had created him as a Jinn which meant he did not possess the inner faculties which would allow him to adopt the knowledge of eminence. Knowing that he could never become eminent drove him into the pit of eternal hopelessness.

– The Devil vowed to God that he would kidnap the inner faculties of the ones who became heedless of the spiritual knowledge, so as to ensure they never come to know of it. The Devil is not bothered when you go to worship places; in fact, he stand and laughs in a corner because he knows that is not the spiritual knowledge. This is why those who acquire the knowledge of eminence become victims of the enmity of the Devil. He will leave no stone unturned in attempting to afflict your inner faculties with esoteric vices. Jealousy, malice, grudge and envy are true evil acts.

– However, even the Devil found salvation at the feet of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. The curse of eternal hopelessness was lifted by HDE Gohar Shahi, as the knowledge He brought to the world has nothing to do with the subtleties.

Sacha Imam Mehdi Kon? Sayedna Gohar Shahi Ya Mirza Ghulam Ahmed?
18th March 2017|LecturesVideos

Sacha Imam Mehdi Kon? Sayedna Gohar Shahi Ya Mirza Ghulam Ahmed?

Younus AlGohar answers a question from a member of the Ahmadiyyah community, who asked why Imam Mehdi is His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi rather than Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani (the leader of the Ahmadiyyah community).

Main points:

– Before talking about Imam Mehdi, it is important to look at the different ranks from God, and which ranks are necessary to announce. Prophethood and Messengerhood are announced per the divine law; the Grand Messengers were required from God, upon their entry at the age of 40, to disclose to the public their office. Prophets would have to as well. Saints are meant to hide their office from the common people.

– Imam Mehdi is not a saint or prophet. Sainthood will end with Imam Mehdi just like prophethood ended with Prophet Mohammad. Technically speaking, since he is not a prophet or a Messenger, Imam Mehdi is not obliged to announce his rank of being Imam Mehdi. Prophetic Traditions also note that Imam Mehdi will not announce his Mehdihood. It is Imam Mehdi’s choice whether he announces his rank or not.

– Imam Mehdi has come for the entire humanity. Prophets and Messengers had to announce their rank so no one in their nation would be deprived. Their faith would be dependant on that prophet or Messenger. Here, it is not just a nation but rather the entire humanity; the one who is to guide them is neither a prophet nor Messenger, and nor does he have to announce his rank. Imam Mehdi’s job is harder than all the jobs of the prophets and messengers. To tell the entire mankind who Imam Mehdi is, is half the duty of God and half the duty of those who received benevolence from Imam Mehdi. There are God’s signs announcing who Imam Mehdi is on the Moon, Sun, Holy Black Stone in Mecca (and various other celestial and terrestrial bodies), through which people will recognise him. However, there also has to be someone to tell people about the divine signs so that they take notice.

– If someone makes a false claim that affects people’s faith in Imam Mehdi, they have to be investigated. When those trained by Imam Mehdi tell the world the truth, they will also have the power to reveal this truth on humanity. Imam Mehdi’s primary objective: to connect humanity to God regardless of their religion. No religion is greater than God.

– The verse in the Koran in which God said that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified is one of the verses known as as Nas (there is no ambiguity in its meaning). Some verses of the Koran are confusing, however this particular verse is not one of them. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani claimed to be both Imam Mehdi and Jesus; therefore to support this false claim, his followers modified the meaning of the aforementioned verse of the Koran. It is against the divine law for two souls to stay in one body, therefore Jesus’s soul could not have entered Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani’s body. False claimants of the office of Mehdihood follow in the footsteps of the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).

– Prophet Mohammad is the last Prophet and Messenger, but that doesn’t mean Islam is the last religion. The Koran directs Prophet Mohammad towards Deen-e-Hanif, the religion to be established in the future. Imam Mehdi will establish the religion which is older than Islam and other religions. There existed the Kalima-e-Sabqat (Foremost Declaration of Faith). This religion and declaration of faith are as ancient as God himself. This religion is the Religion of God: his love. It is all about awakening your souls with God’s light and love.

Can Man Become God?
27th February 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Can Man Become God?

There are three monotheistic, Abrahamic religions: Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Sikhism is also a monotheistic religion – Ek Onkar (‘God is one’) is their logo found on every single Sikh temple.  

The oneness of God is the main theme of every religion which was founded by a Grand Messenger. The declarations of faith of Islam, Judaism and Christianity also point towards the oneness of God.  

Somehow or others, followers of Judaism managed to believe some of their Messengers were either God or Sons of God; still they practised monotheism. In Christianity, the belief that Jesus is the Son of God is the main theme, although it is also known to be a monotheistic religion.

You will find more emphasis laid on the oneness of God in Islam in comparison to Judaism and Christianity, although Judaism and Christianity are monotheistic religions and it is verified by the Koran.

Yet, some of the followers from the era of Prophet Mohammad to date [revered] some of the saints of God like they were, in fact, God.

Even in Pakistan, it became common for followers of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi to say ‘HDE Gohar Shahi is my God.’ It wasn’t a documented belief system nor was it considered to be a legitimate belief by a majority of think tanks within Anjuman Sarfaroshan-e-Islam (an organisation comprising followers of His Divine Eminence in Pakistan). However, some people continued to believe the fact that HDE Gohar Shahi is God.

On one occasion, while HDE Gohar Shahi was addressing a gathering in Pakistan, somebody stood up from the public and said, ‘I wanted to ask a question.’ HDE smiled and said, ‘Go on.’ He asked, ‘Some people in your circle say that you are God.’ How HDE replied was strange. HDE repeated the man’s words and said, ‘Are you saying some people say that I am God? Have you heard other people say, “He is a Devil”?’ The man said, ‘No.’

Then HDE explained, ‘If people say I am God, it doesn’t mean this is what I believe for myself. I never said that I am God.’  

If the Divine Law says that man can be God, then we can officially adopt this practice. Since there are different types of knowledge, even in Islam, you do not know what knowledge grants you what. I have gathered from the writings of many Sufis in different books that the minimum belief a disciple must have for his Spiritual Guide is that he must consider him to be God and he must treat him likewise; otherwise, attaining spiritual grace from him is like daydreaming. This was to be adopted as an attitude, but it has never been documented.  

The religious law (Sharia) is very strict in a sense that it doesn’t recognise inward faculties (Batin). Sharia will see you only as a human being; it doesn’t have any access to make an analysis of your inward faculties. Sharia is blind of spirituality, therefore no matter who you are talking about, Sharia applies one stereotype rule to all. Ask any Sharia master about calling a man God and he will say, ‘This is Shirk (appointing a partner with God).’

Ask yourself, ‘Can man be God?’ And you will say, ‘It is not possible.’

This is because we have always preserved the notion that God is almighty: he can do anything, he will not die and he doesn’t fall ill. He doesn’t need help from anybody; he doesn’t sleep or even yawn. This concept of God has been drilled into our heads [by religious scholars]. We cannot just assume a man can be God.  

What caused every monotheistic religion to have this problem that some of its followers managed to call a man God? Does it simply mean these individuals who developed the notion that man can be God went astray, had lack of knowledge or purposefully became prototypes of Satan?

In Islam, I have found that Sufis who were the great preachers of the oneness of God agreed to this notion that man can be God.

They were those who were delegated by God; they had spiritual authority, backing and support from God. Still they developed this notion among their followers that man can be known as God. This boggles the mind and the question arises: how come?

We find in the Koran that God will forgive any sins but Shirk. If having a notion of man becoming God was Shirk, then why should a person [who believed man can be God] have been a Saint of God bearing divine authority and spiritual power? He should have been a sinner and have received wrathful reaction from God. [Yet this is not what happened]. Nobody has the answer to this because nobody knows the truth.  

How can somebody be a Saint of God and agree to the notion that man can be God, while the Koran states God will not forgive the sin of Shirk?

It is very obvious that the physique of man has no value, therefore it cannot be God. Forget being God; your physical body cannot even be a Momin (enlightened believer). You become a Momin only when your spiritual faculties become involved in enlightenment. Your souls have the ability to absorb God’s light, [so] God can come inside your souls.

Prophet Mohammad said: ‘ The heart of a believer is the abode of God.’  

Your heart can be a divine abode which means God will live there. It is amazing how God works behind the scenes. Now, there is a banner that man cannot be God; behind the banner there is a knowledge according to which God will manifest through a human being. Such a person becomes like a cinema screen.

Young children think the characters on the cinema screen [are real and present in that moment]. In a similar way, when a man thoroughly cleanses his heart and it is wonderfully polished, it shines like a mirror. Then, God manifests himself in the mirror of the spiritual heart. Those who will look at that heart shall see God; they will point towards that heart and say, ‘He is God.’

You become a spiritual container of God, an outfit of God. For example, the t-shirt and pants I am wearing are not me. I am inside this outfit, but it is housing me. In a similar way, God will come inside your heart.

A human being has not become God, however the souls inside that human beings have absorbed the presence of God.

If this is Shirk, then how come God [enters people’s hearts]? This is the issue today.  

Wahhabis have been using this pretext that Sufis are heretics because they call their Spiritual Guides as God.  

Let me remind you of a Tradition of Prophet Mohammad in which he said, ‘One who has seen me, he has only seen God.’  

So if a disciple believes his Spiritual Guide to be God, do not jump to conclusions and do not declare him to be a heretic; because he is not saying that the body of his Spiritual Guide is God. He is referring to the presence of God in his heart.   

The Kaaba (the black cubicle in Mecca) has no value in comparison to Prophet Mohammad, however in order to model the teachings of Islam, Prophet Mohammad circumambulated it [as part of pilgrimage]. He was going around that black cubicle; at one point the Prophet Mohammad stopped and looked at the Kaaba and said, ‘O’ Kaaba, I am aware of your significance. However, the significance of a Momin’s heart is a thousand times greater than you.’  

Mevlana Rumi said, ‘If you have gained control of your heart, this is equivalent of performing Hajj-e-Akbar (The Great Pilgrimage).’ Such a heart which is enlightened and has God’s light in it, is greater than one thousand Kaabas.

This is not about every heart, but a heart of an enlightened believer. The Kaaba was erected by a friend of God (Abraham) whereas the heart is the passage of God.  

Wahhabis are not aware of this Islam because the only form of the religion they are aware of is the ritualistic form of Islam. If Islam is an orange, than Sharia is the skin of an orange. The orange inside is Batin (the esoteric aspect). If you are only eating the skin of an orange, it will taste bitter to you; based on this, you will say, ‘Oranges are bitter.’ Oranges are not bitter – you need to peel it and eat the orange which is inside.  

Now Wahhabis will say the above-mentioned Prophetic Traditions do not have enough authenticity. We know that because everything which reveals the existence of Batin lacks authenticity in the eyes of a Wahhabi Muslim.

The Wahhabi ideology is like a plague. It is full of hatred and based on loot and plunder. Their ideology is based on fanaticism and something worse than extremism. To a Wahhabi, all non-Wahhabi Muslims are considered to be polytheists. Abdul Wahhab Najadi gave them the authority [to kill non-Wahhabis, confiscate their properties and take their women as slaves].

Regarding himself, Prophet Mohammad said that he is light from God. [Maktoobaat Shareef Faarisee, Vol 3, p 191]

Wahhabis reject this saying. According to the Koran, you must have the light of God in your heart to be an enlightened believer. If the light of God doesn’t enter your heart, you are totally and explicitly misguided and misled in the eyes of God. Having light in the heart is a must to become a true devout believer. So how do they not consider Prophet Mohammad to be light? According to the Koran, God’s light is part of God. When it comes in you,  partially, God comes into your heart.  

God’s light is part of God and it is a must for every common follower to believe this.

‘They are devastated and destroyed, those whose hearts have become so hard that God’s name does not enter into them. And that is an explicit misguidance.’ [Koran 39:22]

Man cannot be God, but man can have God in him.  

It is a must for connection with God for you to absorb God’s light in your heart and souls. If you do not manage to do it, neither do you know God nor does God know you. You only become familiar with God once you have God’s light in your heart; there is no familiarity without it. When you have it, you have some portion of God in you because God’s light belongs to God and is part of God.

Can you separate an enlightened believer from God? It is his light in your heart that turns you into an enlightened believer. A true believer cannot be separated from God, let alone those individuals who become a divine mirror in which the disciples observe the splendour of God.

God can manifest his beauty and compassion upon any human being; he is not bound by any law.

He must manifest his beauty. For example, when you dress up nicely, don’t you want people to look at you? In a similar way, God wants to show himself off; otherwise nobody will know who God is and how handsome he is. He does manifest his beauty on a shiny mirror: an enlightened heart. An enlightened heart becomes so transparent that whoever comes in front of it will reflect in it, whether it is Prophet Mohammad or God.

Islah-e-Qalb: Rah-e-Sulook Ki Ibtida

Younus AlGohar explains how awakening of the heart is central to one’s faith and the first step on the path of guidance.

This video is in Urdu.

Main points:

– Muslims have considered the Quran to the be the source of knowledge, but the true source of knowledge is Prophet Mohammad. Gabriel revealed the Quran on the heart of Prophet Mohammad; benevolence of the Quran will only be obtained from the heart of Prophet Mohammad. Those who believed this Quran in book form to be the only source of their knowledge became Shias, Sunnis, Wahhabis, etc.

– To get connected to God, you must awaken your heart. You cannot awaken or reform your heart on your own. Prophet Mohammad said, ‘O’ Son of Adam, there is a lump of flesh inside you. If it is set right, the entire body is set right. If it is corrupt, the entire body is corrupt. Remember well: it is your heart.’ Reformation of the heart is the first step on the path to guidance.

– Bait (pledging allegiance to a spiritual guide) is done for a specific purpose: to obtain what you cannot obtain on your own. A true spiritual guide will awaken your heart and engage it Dhikr of Ism-e-Dhaat Allah Hu (Invocation of God’s Name). Adopting hermitage and austerity will not help you on the spiritual path until after you’ve awakened your heart.

– The way Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has explained spirituality is so easy to understand. Educated and uneducated people alike will listen to Lord Ra Riaz’s explanation of spirituality and understand it in the same way. The Quran says those who do Dhikr (Invocation) are alive and those who don’t do Dhikr are dead. Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi revealed the secret behind this and said that those whose hearts are engaged in Dhikr are alive; those whose hearts do not do Dhikr are alive, but they are known to be among the dead.

– Prophet Mohammad said, ‘I sleep but my heart never sleeps.’ Prophet Mohammad’s heart does Dhikr and it is obligatory upon every follower of Prophet Mohammad that their hearts also engage in Dhikr. As long as your heart does not engage in Dhikr, you can’t be called a Momin because you’ve only accepted Islam with your word of mouth; faith has not entered your heart according to the Quran.

– When your heart is awakened, it progresses from the stage of Qalb-e-Snobar to the stage of Qalb-e-Saleem (a heart that has been secured from Satan). It then progresses to Qalb-e-Muneeb (a heart turned towards God); this is when the heart can travel. Finally, when divine theophanies fall upon one’s heart, the heart enters the final stage of Qalb-e-Shaheed. The progress of the heart is directly related to the purification of the Nafs (Self). When the heart reaches the stage of Qalb-e-Shaheed, divine theophanies also fall upon the Nafs and purify it; this is when it is known as Nafs-e-Mutamaina.

– When we say to God, ‘Show us the straight path,’ it is our hearts that will travel on this path.

– When you read Salat (a form of prayer), you are supposed to see God. If you are not able to see God, you are supposed to make yourself worthy of coming under God’s sight. Those are Mohsin who have reached the stage of seeing God. God said that those who are in search for God should know that he is near to Mohsineen. Examples of Mohsineen are Lal Shahbaz Qalandar and Abdul Qadir Jilani. When someone sees God, the image of God’s beauty is imprinted on their eyes and then from their eyes to their hearts. Then to them God says, ‘Go down. Whoever looks at you will be looking at me.’

– Imam Mehdi’s image on the Moon is also giving Izn-e-Dhikr-e-Qalb to people. Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi promises, ‘I will help you until you find God.’ Right now, you can only awaken your heart through Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
