#AskYounusAlGohar – How Do Inanimate Objects Communicate?

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer on YouTube live.

It is through the Subtlety of Akhfah (Arcane) that human beings can speak and through the Subtlety of Ana that they can see, but when the body dies the subtleties are wasted in the grave. You will not be granted new subtleties in paradise because the subtleties were given to human beings in the world as a test. God wanted to see if you would utilise these subtleties. This is a method but do not think this method is definite because the trees and animals don’t possess the Subtlety of Akhfah, however, God is Absolute Power and he can make any creature – animate or inanimate – do as he pleases.

When the human soul comes into the world and enters the body, it is in a dormant state. But when it goes back it is not in a dormant state. After spending time in this world, the soul will not be given a small body in paradise. The bodies there will be substantial and the same soul will be placed inside the new body, in accordance with its accountability. Those new bodies will never burn nor perish.

The reason for the ageing process in the world is resistance;  then everything we eat is foreign to us because we were made from the clay in heaven. There is a lot of filth, which causes wear and tear on the body. However, there is no such thing in paradise. Everything there is in liquid form, even apples don’t have any texture. There are no solid things; hence, the bodies don’t go through exertion.

You might have heard stories that somebody who never spoke English before fell asleep one night and woke up speaking in English or somebody who lived in England all their life suddenly woke up with an American accent – these things do happen. God does show his Divine Power from time to time. The mechanism of speaking in the world is different to the mechanism in paradise; do not apply the rules of this world to the rules of paradise.

God said: I have Absolute Power over everything.  Koran [5:120]

This is the reason why there are incidents whereby stones and animals speak. Prophet Mohammad’s staff used to converse with him; animals used to converse with him. However, this method of communication is different.

If you lived in the era of Prophet Mohammad, you might think the animals conversed with him in the Arabic language and you’d be able to hear the conversation. But the animals, sticks and stones did not converse in this manner; whatever they wanted to say would come onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad.  

I used to think the same but once I was sitting on a sofa somewhere and all of the sudden my hands and feet began to itch. I had the same thought echoing in my mind over and over again that somebody has done something wrong on this sofa. I was disturbed; I didn’t know why this thought was echoing in my mind. I was perplexed. Then, after a few years, I was some place else, sitting on a bus and another thought began echoing in my mind repeatedly that somebody was stabbed here. When this started happening frequently, I became concerned and I asked His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi what was happening to me.

HDE Gohar Shahi explained, ‘These inanimate objects are conversing with you but you think they are just your thoughts. These things are actually speaking to you.’

 Allama Iqbal said: If God granted you the friendship of nature; you’d be able to converse with the flowers.

This does not mean that you will be able to stand before a tree and ask it to tell you a story and you will hear the tree replying. Whenever inanimate objects converse with you, it will come onto your heart.

In order to be a verified recipient of this type of communication, you must be a Qalb-e-Shaheed (The Witnessing Heart). Otherwise, you may think things are communicating with you, but really they are your own thoughts.

When these communications come onto the Qalb-e-Shaheed, if they are evil thoughts they will be expelled, and if they are divine thoughts the production of Divine Light will increase. However, if the thoughts are neither expelled nor increase the Divine Light it simply means it is the communication from inanimate objects. If a tree is conversing with you, the script coming onto your heart will not be divine, would it? It will just be a thought. There will be no Divine Light in it because inanimate objects do not possess Divine light.

Now, the image of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi on the Moon can also communicate with people and the method of communication is the same: you ask your question in your heart and the answer will also be revealed onto your heart. This is how this method of communication is carried out.

#AskYounusAlGohar – Can You Convince Me Intellectually to Believe in HDE Gohar Shahi?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Can You Convince Me Intellectually to Believe in HDE Gohar Shahi?

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer on YouTube live.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi does not cater for your intellectuality. HDE is more concerned about your spirituality – about enlightenment of the soul and purgation of your Carnal Self. HDE Gohar Shahi estimates the possibilities of whether or not God will allow you into his friendship.

Secondly, I do not want to convince anybody to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi.

The reason why I don’t want to convince anybody to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi is that only seekers will find the truth. The truth does not beg anybody. I would hate to convince you.

There is a proverb in Persian, ‘True fragrance makes its presence felt.’ You don’t want somebody to tell you, ‘It is fragrance.’

We’re talking about HDE Gohar Shahi. While we’re talking about HDE Gohar Shahi, HDE Gohar Shahi’s name will attract the aspiring hearts and souls. If HDE Gohar Shahi’s name doesn’t interest the heart and soul of anybody, then it is useless for them.

I do not convince anybody, I would hate to do it. However, there is a book written by HDE Gohar Shahi, it is called The Religion of God (Divine Love). Go through every word of this book and you’ll find out what the score is.

HDE Gohar Shahi has nothing to do with intellectuality. Why would I give you a reason to believe in HDE Gohar Shahi other than what HDE has come here for? HDE has come here to enlighten our hearts and souls, and to purge our Carnal Selves.

The Difference Between Intellect and Intelligence

Secondly, you cannot understand or know God with intellect. Intellect is blindness, nothing else. If you would talk about intelligence, I would reply differently.

There is a difference between intelligence and intellect. You need intellect for your mundane life; however, now we’re talking about God, not this phenomenal world. In order to understand God, what you need is an enlightened heart. According to the Koran, the power of comprehension is granted to a heart when that heart is enlightened. [22:46]

Go through every single word of the Koran and tell me: can you understand God with your intellect? The answer is no. You need an enlightened heart. Then comes superior intelligence than that of the intellect you have in your head.

Intelligence is discerning and intuitive; it is not learnt, it is granted by God.

With your intellect, you can understand things relating to your life and this universe, however, God cannot be understood; actions and acts of God cannot be comprehended with the help for the intellect.

You need the enlightenment of the heart which will then initiate into that divine intelligence; this will be granted to your heart.

Q: How can the heart be granted intelligence when the heart doesn’t think?

I advised you to study The Religion of God (Divine Love) by HDE Gohar Shahi [which has answers to this question]. This sentence that you just wrote simply suggests to me that you are pretty naive to the concept of spirituality. You do not know what heart, in particular, I am referring to.

There is a fleshy heart which pumps and oxygenates the blood. This is not the heart I am talking about. I am talking about the heart which is like a soul, an angel; it is sitting on top of the fleshy heart. The fleshy heart is just housing it. That spiritual being which sits on the heart is in a dormant state. When this is activated and brought back to life through a spiritual guide, with the help of whom the spiritual heart is rejuvenated, then that heart thinks. That heart is granted intelligence.

Bear in mind this philosophy is not my own concocted philosophy. This is coming from the Koran: the power of comprehension is granted to the hearts. Moula Ali, Data Ali Hajwari and Khwaja all read the same Koran. You and I are reading the same Koran. Every other Muslim in Muslim and non-Muslim countries, who are scattered into many different denotations are reading the same Koran. How come Ali had a different understanding of the Koran? It is nothing to do with intellectuality. It is to do with spiritual intelligence which is granted to the hearts when the hearts are purified and activated.

According to this knowledge of spirituality, the heart can become enlightened once the seed of the name of God is implanted in the heart. The heart is articulated with God’s name and thus this creates divine light.

Imam Mehdi Will Not Impose Islam Through Bloodshed
8th May 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Imam Mehdi Will Not Impose Islam Through Bloodshed

The following is the English transcript of Younus AlGohar’s lecture 

Those who say, ‘Imam Mehdi will kill non-Muslims,’ are ignorant of the truth and the Koran.

 

It is a common misperception in Muslim circles that Imam Mehdi will impose Islam on the entire world. The concept of Imam Mehdi was given to Muslims through celestial scriptures, from God. Similarly, the concept of the Messiah in Judaism is also from celestial scriptures. If the Jews think the Messiah will impose Judaism and the Christians think Jesus shall impose Christianity, while Muslims think Imam Mehdi shall impose Islam; this causes a lot of confusion.

 

God has given the concept of an Awaited One in all celestial scriptures and if a Muslim thinks only Islam’s concept is correct, that person is not a true Muslim. Muslims are required by their religion to believe in all prophets, messengers and the four celestial scriptures.

 

Now the concept of Imam Mehdi is from God and the concept of the Messiah is also from God, therefore how is it possible that God will send Imam Mehdi to spread Islam and the Messiah to spread Judaism all over the world? Does God have a plan to wreak havoc and cause bloodshed? It just doesn’t make any sense.  

 

How can this concept exist in a Muslim’s mind that Islam will spread over the entire world when it is for Islam that Prophet Mohammad said,

‘Nothing would be left in the Koran for except customary recitation and nothing will be left in Islam for except its name.’  

When the Muslims conquered Mecca, it was known as the Golden Age of Islam. The Muslims had their own Islamic Sultanate but even in that era, Islam was confined to a piece of land, it had not spread all over the world. Later on, the Caliphs invaded countries and enforced Islam. However, I am completely against the act of invading and attacking another country in order to enforce your religion upon them. This is wrong. It is in direct violation of what the Koran says,

 ‘La iqra fiddeen’ [2:256]

This is often translated by clerics as: there is no compulsion in the religion. However, this is a misinterpretation. It actually means: do not do anything in the religion that makes you feel disgusted. How can you not feel disgusted, killing a 6-month old baby just because his parents did not accept Islam? This is against the principles of Islam and the Koran.

 

A Muslim would say that the era of Prophet Mohammad was the best and yet we know that even in the era of Prophet Mohammad the Islamic flag did not reign over the entire world.  

 

The Commencement of Eminence

Imam Mehdi shall be greater in eminence and possess more knowledge than Adam Safi Allah; how can any Muslim attribute violence and bloodshed to Imam Mehdi?  

 

The most important point to note is that when God was creating Adam Safi Allah, the angels objected. The angels suspected that he would again cause mischief and bloodshed. They said to God, ‘Are we not enough to glorify you and sing your praise?’ God’s argument in response was that this time he was going to give Adam the Knowledge of Eminence. [Koran 2:30]  

 

Those sects in Islam who claim that Imam Mehdi will use the power of his sword to impose Islam on the entire world, I have a question for them: has Islam not always been subjected to bloodshed?

 

In order to eliminate bloodshed from the nature of man, God granted Adam the Knowledge of Eminence; it simply means Muslims do not know what the Knowledge of Eminence really is nor do they understand what is written in the Koran. How can it be that Imam Mehdi will possess this Knowledge of Eminence, which was given to eliminate bloodshed and at the same time he will cause bloodshed and kill all who do not accept Islam? How can good and evil coexist together?

 

Adam Safi Allah was given the minimum knowledge of how to generate divine light from the name of God. Imam Mehdi will not only possess the knowledge that was given to Adam, He will also possess and dispense the knowledge of how to obtain enlightenment from the sub-spirits of God (Jussa Taufeeq-e-Illahi/Tifle Noorie) and He will even dispense the knowledge with the help of which one will be able to see God (Deedar-e-Illahi) and the method by which one can come under the theophanies of God.

 

God has invested all his special powers and authority within Imam un Mubeen [Koran 36:12].

Imam un Mubeen (The Elusive Imam) means the one who does not have to be searched for; His grandeur and majesty is such that it speaks for itself. People will be humbled before him and compelled to believe that only He can be the Imam un Mubeen. Those who still maintain to reject Him, despite seeing all the signs, are those whose eyes are blind and heart is blind.  

 

There are 27 Haroof-e-Mukatiyat (The Disjointed Letters). All prophets and messengers together only brought down the knowledge of 2 letters and Imam Mehdi shall bring down the remaining 25. How much knowledge that must be! Adam’s eminent knowledge was merely a pinch of knowledge compared to the knowledge Imam Mehdi shall dispense. Imam Mehdi is dispensing the secretive knowledge of God (Ilm-e-Ladduni).

 

Those who think Imam Mehdi shall pick up the sword are not only blasphemers of Imam Mehdi; they are blaspheming and rejecting the Koran, Prophet Mohammad and God. Can any cleric legitimately say that according to Islam, one who is involved in bloodshed will go to heaven? Only those are involved in bloodshed who do not possess the Knowledge of Eminence. In other words, one who is involved in bloodshed in the name of God/religion is trying to prove God wrong. Those who have obtained this Knowledge of Eminence only spread peace, love and connect people with God.  

 

Prophet Mohammad did participate in wars, however, not a single infidel died from his sword. In those days, the Arab mentality was such that the weapon was seen as a man’s power. According to the mentality of the people at the time, had Prophet Mohammad not held a sword, they would have seen him as a coward. However, Prophet Mohammad never killed anyone.

God sent Prophet Mohammad down as a mercy upon all mankind. [Koran 21:107]

Prophet Mohammad even said, ‘If I had used a sword, would all my teeth have broken?’ When the infidels in Ta’if sent mad dogs after the Prophet and his shoes were full of blood, Gabriel asked, ‘Shall I join the two mountains so that they may be destroyed?’ Prophet Mohammad said, ‘No, I have not come to harm anyone; I have come as a blessing for all.’  

 

If God gave Adam the Knowledge of Eminence to eliminate bloodshed, he must have given Prophet Mohammad something even greater; so that neither Prophet Mohammad nor those who were in the physical and spiritual company of Prophet Mohammad would have the urge to cause bloodshed.

 

All religions allow one to hold a weapon in self-defence, provided you are being attacked by the enemy. However, there is no religion that allows you to use a weapon to enforce your religion upon others. Therefore, having this conjecture for Imam Mehdi is utterly blasphemous.

 

Imam Mehdi will not kill any Christian or Jew. The message of Imam Mehdi is love and the knowledge Imam Mehdi is dispensing is far greater than the Knowledge of Eminence granted to Adam Safi Allah.

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence
29th April 2017|Articles

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence

How extra-celestial beings changed the course of human history.

There are three periods in human history. In the religious circles, it is commonly believed that in total, God sent 124 000 different messengers and prophets. Out of them, 14 000 were only Adams. In the theosophical circles of Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – the scholars understand that there was only one Adam, but they do not know how to justify it.

The First Period: The Adams

Now we’re living in the scientific era. We never had the type of transportation that we have today in the past. We have aeroplanes, motorised boats, etc. We can now travel by sea, air and land. Everything has become so advanced and travelling has become so easy and comfortable. However, in the olden times, travelling was a nightmare.

Christopher Fernandez was a Spanish, Christian leader. He sent a man called Christopher Columbus on a journey. The idea was to discover a land where they could establish a Christian kingdom. Spain comes from the word ‘Usman’ which we call ‘Ottoman’ in English. The words ‘España (Spain)’ and ‘Hispanic’ are derived from it. Christopher Columbus was able to make a boat with an automatic motor and go far out into the sea.

He was looking for any barren land when he arrived at the soil that we call the United States of America today. The only people he bumped into there were the Native Americans. Because they had dark complexions, he thought that perhaps they were Indians, so he thought that he arrived in India. He was the first to arrive from across the Atlantic, but people still lived in America before he arrived.

If it was only one Adam who came, then it would become a mystery how the progeny of one Adam dispersed itself and scattered into so many different islands and remote places of this world. Some people live in the mountains, in igloos; their nature and culture are different.

So there was not just one Adam; 14 000 Adams were sent. Human beings have inhabited this world for millions and millions of years. For that enormously long period of time, God had only seen people who would worship him in their worship places. These people did not know anything about God’s love or the existence of celestial realms where, other than them, different types of creatures inhabit.

In terms of knowledge and understanding of the cosmos, their intelligence was zero. They couldn’t think of anybody else for except themselves. Even today, we do believe there are angels and genies, but we haven’t seen them with our naked eyes. A majority of people haven’t seen angels walking [in the world]. However, we believe it because we have been told of their existence by trustworthy individuals [that we know to be saints of God].

So for as long as the common man existed in this world, who didn’t know about divine love, God had been experimenting [with] different species of humankind. He made many different types of human beings. Sometimes, he would change the colour of their skin. Sometimes, he would change their height. However, the culture of hatred was pretty much persistent. Their hateful culture of killing each other never perished.

In the end, maybe 6500 years ago – that is pretty close in comparison to millions of years since the inhabitation of humankind on Planet Earth – God, as it has come to our knowledge, got bored with the kind of worship and culture that human beings carried for that long. Then he decided that now was the time for him to upgrade human beings in character and in spirituality.

Prophets who gave the world an insight into the future – which we normally call prophecies – these kinds of prophets were not there in the era [pre-existing the last Adam]. The first time a prophet was introduced in this world with the ability to foretell the future was only 6500 years ago.

Before that period of time, the human heart and soul were barren. There was no sign of spiritual cultivation because there was no seed of love. So they lived in complete oblivion and darkness of ignorance.

They lived in ignorance about themselves, God and the cosmos. They didn’t know anything about their surroundings or the sky; they didn’t know anything about any extra-terrestrial, celestial or extra-celestial realm.

Then, about 6500 years ago, God decided to open up a little and allow human beings to be in contact with the other side of the world for the first time in human history. That was a wonderful mark of the divine exuberance and excellence.

Whoever was able to obtain this type of knowledge and be in contact with the other side of the world must have felt very lucky and [excited]. Such people must have felt privileged because they never heard that any human being could be in contact with the other side of the world.

Then came this radicalised message: love God. Don’t forget that for many million years, nobody heard such a message. It took them by storm.

They would say, ‘You don’t even see God and you want to love him? How?’ That was the very first divine inspiration. Before this, they would only go to worship places and [pay homage to their respective forms] of God, because they didn’t know anything.

The Second Period: The Last Adam

Then the last Adam, ‘Adam the Eminent One’, came. The first thing which was almost impossible for [people] to digest spiritually was to relate to the last Adam who was created in Paradise and then descended onto Earth. He was different in nature, character and complexion from them; even the nutrients he would eat [were different]. The initial thought that crossed their minds was, ‘He came from above the skies. He must be a son of God.’

Now, when we talk about the first divinely ordained and anointed Adam, with the knowledge of eminence – the knowledge of spirituality which connects man with God – we involuntarily assume that every single person in that era of Adam was blessed with this knowledge. This is where we go wrong.

Not even in the era of Abraham was everybody blessed with his presence, love and the knowledge he was parting with. After Abraham, Moses came; he was a Grand Messenger with the divine majesty hovering around his face. [However,] not even in the era of Moses was everybody blessed with that knowledge.

Then came Jesus. Jesus is a little different in that he was only given 33 months of ministry. Do not forget: other prophets and messengers spent years and years [spreading their message]. Adam lived for 931 years, Abraham was over 125 and Moses spent a lot of time among people. Jesus’s ministry did not even last three years.

Muslims talk about the grandsons of Prophet Mohammad; they commemorate their sorrow and how brutally they were killed in Iraq. They talk about the torment they went through of thirst, hunger and fear. However, nobody – not even Christians – talks about the turmoil and hardship Jesus had to face.

Firstly, Jesus didn’t have a house, a bed or pillow. He had no building to call his home. He did not enjoy anything that belongs to this world. This was the quality of his self-imposed austerity. He used to say that he was on a divine mission and he wasn’t here to enjoy life. He did not like this life because he is immortal.

When Jesus came to this world, he would open his mouth and the breath of eternal life would [disperse]. He talked about the Kingdom of God, spiritual infusion, the Unseen World and he talked about the Father. He talked about real, rapturous love. However, there were only a few who were [ready to become] recipients. There were only a few disciples who were really close to Lord Jesus Christ. One of them was Thomas. If you study the Gospel of Thomas, you would come to know of the knowledge I talk about: the Unseen World.

He said, ‘I am the alpha and omega. I am the light of the world.’ [Revelations 1:8; John 8:12] The Koran said, ‘God is the light of the world.’ [Koran 24:35]

Tell me: is this the son of God or God himself because Jesus said what God says about himself in the Koran.

The blind would come to him; he would blow upon their faces and their eyesight would be restored. He would blow upon people who were not able to walk [and heal them]. When they were healed, they would want to pay their homage to Lord Jesus Christ. They would say, ‘You have done a favour [upon us].’ He would reply, ‘No, I haven’t done a favour yet.’

He said, ‘This is not a favour. If you were not able to see this world and now you can, this is not a favour – because you are still blind. When you see things in this world, it doesn’t benefit you. How can this be a favour? I will do to you a favour when your inner eye is open. What you will see with the inner eye is what will benefit you.’

One day, he stood in front of many different people. Some of them were the followers of the religion of Adam, some others were the followers of Abraham and some others were followers of Moses. He said to them, ‘Come to me. Adam, Moses and Abraham were not worthy.’ They didn’t like it. They took it as a blasphemy. They would ask him, ‘Who are you to say such a thing?’ His reply would be, ‘Don’t ask me. Ask the one who sent me.’

Jesus clearly said, ‘I am the only way to the Father. You only reach through the Father through me.’ [John 14:6]

What Jesus talked about was mind-boggling. In front of him were people who didn’t know who they were sitting with. They didn’t know that the person who was standing in front of them was not a man. It is a gross injustice if you know Jesus as a son of man.

A man is known by his character, not by his family lineage. Your ancestral history doesn’t reveal anything about you.

Jesus was a favour upon mankind. [However], you can count the number of people who were blessed by him. They were seven in number, who were sent by Jesus to seek asylum in caves. They fell asleep and have been there for the past 2000 years. Now they’re back with Jesus.

After Jesus came Prophet Mohammad. When Prophet Mohammad came into this world, he was equipped with the spiritual knowledge which would allow people to see God. With his help, many people were able [to reach the audience of God].

In the span of 5000 years, God was done with the exhibition of his power; he was done with the exhibition of his knowledge of eminence.

It is no wonder that he didn’t do anything for the many million years prior to [the creation of Adam the Eminent One]. When he started to reveal about himself, little by little, it only took 5000 years for him to be done. In this span of time, all the Grand Messengers had been sent. All the knowledge was sent, starting from the articulation of God’s name in the heartbeats and coming to an end with the ability to see God and enter into a physical meeting with God. That is the culmination, the peak.

Now, you shouldn’t ask God to send somebody else, because he is done! [He has nothing else to offer].

The Final Period: The Awaited Ones

When I was in Pakistan, somebody asked me, ‘Why has the image of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has appeared on the surface of the Moon? Why not the image of Prophet Mohammad?’ I replied, ‘Why? If Prophet Mohammad’s image appeared on the Moon, what would you receive as a spiritual benefit from that image? He is not here.’ It is impossible.

Then somebody sent me a question, ‘You say that your Gohar Shahi will return to this world. Why can’t Prophet Mohammad return?’ But if Prophet Mohammad were to return, what would he do? He has already done everything he could have done.

Immigration in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia have been taken over by the US’s Homeland Security. [These countries] cannot tackle the upfront threats, so Homeland Security is taking care of their immigration. Similarly, God is done. Now the Gohar and Jesus team from the Unseen World has taken over.

First, it was Jesus who talked about the Unseen world. Then His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi came into this world and opened up the chapter [and talked about the secrets of God]. Only two dignitaries talked about the Unseen World and knowledge of the Unseen World.

So this time, when Jesus finally shows up in public, they must believe in Jesus as divine. If they don’t, they are not connected to Jesus. [Similarly, when] HDE Gohar Shahi shows up again in public, they must admit that HDE Gohar Shahi is divine.

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion

The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech, originally posted on his Medium page.

Sufism has been excluded from the mainstream religion of Islam by radical, intolerant and extremist Muslims of contemporary times. Sufism is yet another name for esoteric knowledge (spirituality) that deals in enlightenment, transformation and strengthening of your souls and auxiliary spirits.

It is such a folly for a human being to consider exclusion of spirituality from the religion, as human beings are compound creatures. Neither are we totally ethereal nor totally terrestrial; we are a combination of multiple sources.

In describing human beings, Moula Ali said, ‘O’ man, you perceive yourself to be very small but there in you is the entire universe. Your illness is within you and its remedy also is within you.’

There is everything in a human being. For example, stones, water, fire, wind, trees, leaves, animals, etc. Let’s jump to the angelic realm: we have angels in us and then greater, grand angels (Archangels). We have our own soul and then a potential capacity to accommodate God in us.

A perfect man is one who successfully manages to accommodate God inside him. Without God living in you, you are an incomplete human being.

You become a human being when God is included in you. This is a mighty statement. You are a perfect human being when God is an inhabitant inside you like yourself. This is spirituality.

Those who only focus and confine themselves to outward knowledge and the outward form of worship are practically rejecting the source of life; they are practically rejecting the real world.

The world that we are living in today is only for a brief sojourn. It is like a makeshift arrangement. Everybody knows about it, although they don’t care what it means. Where do we go after we die here and what is it that dies in us? Are we left with any other element of life after death, or do we become part of nothingness?

What dies in us is a deceptive form of life; this form of life did not exist before our entry into this world and it will not exist after our departure from this world. The eternal life belongs to your soul.

This is where people go wrong who try to understand His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and his teachings without the concept of spirituality. Spirituality is real knowledge; spirituality is what you really need, which is why HDE Gohar Shahi has laid an enormous amount of emphasis on acquiring spiritual expertise. This is the type of knowledge that will benefit you after your departure from this deceptive world.

There is another scenario quite common in this world today: people live a religious life as a Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jew etc. They spend most of their time in the worship places. They do every good thing stated in the Bible, Koran and Torah, but when they actually die, their souls are dormant. Their souls are naïve to God and enlightenment. When they go back into the world of spirits, they are as blank as they were when they were sent into this world. Their purpose is lost.

In the end, individuals whose focus is on outward religiosity are going to be suffering. They will be in possession of nothing. They will not be treated either as a true follower of Moses, Jesus or Prophet Mohammad [by God].

Your purpose upon entry into this world is to enlighten your soul and give it the nourishment of God’s light. With the strength of God’s light, you are given to perform a spiritual journey to arrive at your destiny, which has been recorded in the book of your fate.

Since you are spending your time in mosques, churches, temples and synagogues without realising you are not doing enough to awaken your soul, [your time spent is] wasted. This is why His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has laid all the emphasis on enlightenment of the soul.

It is the soul which will enable you to know God. It is the soul which will enable you to have the divine understanding of love.

Without enlightenment of the soul, you are naïve to the most sacred and most ancient emotion of God: love. You cannot comprehend the manifestation of true love because your soul is dormant and you are not using the inner faculties of life.

This knowledge of spirituality was the base in every religion and the core of every religion. It began with the introduction of a new and the last Adam (Adam the Eminent One) from God.

Every time a Grand Messenger was sent by God into this world, he was equipped with both types of knowledge: outward and inner. Each Grand Messenger was very open to talk about the outward knowledge; however, there were some hurdles or perhaps some unspoken spiritual incapacity of the people he was sent into [due to which he didn’t boldly speak about spirituality].

In the first era of every Grand Messenger, most people did suffer from the disease of spiritual incapacity. They didn’t possess the power of comprehension of such obscure knowledge. This happened every time every Grand Messenger was sent. Some Grand Messengers spent all their time in trying to establish their religion. For example, when Moses went to Mount of Sinai to speak to God, upon his return, [people] reverted to their previous religion; they made a gold cow and [started worshipping] it again. So the Grand Messengers were kept busy; they didn’t have enough time to explain to their followers what spirituality was. Nevertheless, with the time they had — in whatever era they were appointed by God — they broke the ice. They took a couple of disciples in their confidence and told them about the spiritual knowledge.

When we talk about spirituality in Islam, it is known as Sufism and when we talk about spirituality in Judaism, it is called Kabbalah. Kabbalah and Sufism are the same. The difference that you will see will be intensity. Some missiles have a range of 5000 kilometres while some others have a range of 10 000 kilometres. Similarly, Kabbalah is the science of spirituality; however, the aspect of being able to see God is missing because that knowledge had not been revealed when Judaism was established. Later on, the knowledge of seeing God was revealed upon the heart of Prophet Mohammad.

Members of Mehdi Foundation International embrace both the knowledge of Kabbalah and the knowledge of Sufism.

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How does a seeker become heedless of God?

The Prophet Mohammad said, ‘When somebody sins, the angels record the sin in the book of deeds and at the same time, places a black spot on the heart. With abundance of sins, one day the heart turns all dark. At this stage, no advice is effective on the sinner.’

The companions of Prophet Mohammad asked,  ‘What should be done at this stage to remove darkness from the heart?’

He replied, ‘There is a means of cleansing for everything; whereas for the heart, it is Dhikr Allah (Invocation of God’s Name).’

Islamic Judiciary & ISIS

Islamic Judiciary & ISIS

In response to Younus AlGohar’s article entitled Who Are the Yazidis and Why Do ISIS Want to Kill Them? Christopher M. wrote the following comment:

This was so deep – so serious. It honestly gave me a whole new perspective on religion. I was only able to understand the English part, as I am a 22 [year old] male, Bay Area native. But it was really encouraging to know get an insider’s point of view on the real war that’s going on in Iraq – the war on religion. ISIS’ message is so toxic and contradicting. They continue to exclaim “Islam!” but contradict the very idea of that religion. ISIS are killing innocence people, and forcing women to be their sex slaves. ISIS screams out the religion’s name – Islam – that stems from the very idea to never judge a person, as God will have the final judgement on judgement day; a.k.a. The end of your life. It’s an unfortunate thing to have to think about, that your life will come to an end, because we all have to come to a close. It’s an ugly truth, and for someone to wish that upon others are the real evil in the world. It has nothing to do with religion, evil just lingers in their core.

When this comment was shared with Younus AlGohar, he elaborated on the subject. 

What ISIS is doing cannot remotely be linked to Islam, to be honest with you.

Let me tell you what a majority of Muslims think about Islam. A majority of Muslims think that the tenets of Islam cannot be modified, changed or updated. Allegedly speaking, in order to be a pure and true Muslim, one must adhere to the philosophy of Islam as it was presented at the time of Prophet Mohammad. However, this is not true.

Islam, like any other religion in the world, needed to go through the process of spiritual evolution. This was due to the fact that in every new age, the way people live their life changes. Circumstances change. What was significant 1400 years ago appears to be insignificant today.

Therefore, there has to be divinely monitored modification. It would be done under supervision of a divine vicegerent – somebody who has been anointed by God to carry out what has been outdated in the fundamental tenets of Islam.

Killing somebody for any reason is strictly prohibited until that person is a criminal and a liability. But then, there are courts who will look into the matter. If the accused person is found to be a criminal, then obviously that criminal has to be punished. In the course of fulfilling the requirement of bringing the criminals to justice, if somebody is awarded capital punishment, that is not an act of tyranny.

However, if some Muslim organisations or Muslims individually assume that some other Muslims or non-Muslims are impure or not obedient to God, they do not have any right to kill anybody.

No court on Earth is permitted by God to punish somebody who doesn’t believe in God or to punish somebody who they think is impure in his practice of Islam.

Crimes against humanity can be dealt with by human beings on Earth. For example, if you kill somebody, human beings have been delegated by God to do justice and bring the criminal to the judiciary system. It is not like somebody is a killer and you on your own want to take the law in your hand and punish the criminal – this is not allowed. It is not permissible under any Islamic judiciary system.

If somebody you think is disobedient to God, again, it is not between you and him. It is between him and God. God is the master of the Day of Judgement. On the Day of Judgement God will decide what he wants to to do with that disobedient person. Maybe he can forgive him, and maybe he will want to punish him. It is entirely up to God.

You as a human being cannot punish people for crimes done against God or religion.

What ISIS is doing to Yazidi women is a brutal act of tyranny and nothing else. Making sex slaves isn to even remotely linked with any interpretation of the Quran and Islam. ISIS ideology is a criminal ideology. That is what it is.

According to the Quran, ‘Killing one innocent human being is equal to killing the entire humanity.’

According to Prophet Mohammad, you cannot even kill an animal. When Prophet Mohammad did not even allow Muslims to kill an animal, how can they kill innocent human beings?

The very act of suicide is strictly prohibited and unlawful in Sharia Law (endorsed by Prophet Mohammad by his custom and practice). When suicide is unlawful and there is a clear prohibition about suicide, how can somebody become a suicide bomber, kill himself and kill other human beings? How can anyone declare this sheer atrocity to be a favourable act of a a true believer (Momin) in the eyes of God?

This is ridiculing the religion of Islam. It has nothing to do with Islam. As far as the original form of Islam is concerned, this is absurd. This is nothing but tyranny and brutality.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Minjanib Allah Hidayat Par Kaun Hai?

#AskYounusAlGohar | Minjanib Allah Hidayat Par Kaun Hai?

Younus AlGohar answers a question from a viewer about the technicalities involved in performance of worship whilst facing the Kaaba (in Mecca). Whilst doing so, he explains how God grants guidance.

Main points:

– As long as your heart is not connected with God and directed towards God, you’ll need to respect the pointer that is the Kaaba. The destination is not the Kaaba; the destination is God. When your heart is enlightened and directed towards God, then you can face anywhere and perform Salat (worship). When God is in you, you will be greater than the Kaaba – the Kaaba is just stone whereas man has the potential to be the greatest of all creation. When God is in you, the Kaaba will circumbulate you.

– In the first instance when you’re being guided, your heart generates divine energy (Noor). That divine energy will first clean your heart, and then if your heart is fully enlightened, the divine energy will enter your bloodstream. As long as the divine energy generated in the heart is only enough to take care of the needs of the heart, you will be known as just a Momin (true believer), but your heart won’t be directed to God.

– The prayer mentioned in Quran 1:6-7 is for those who have already awakened their heart, but they want God to turn their hearts towards him (and reach the stage of Qalb-e-Muneeb). This verse is asking God to take them towards the blessing of seeing God. For Momins, the heartbeats are the legs through which you walk on the Straight Path. The second part of this prayer asks God to not put them on the path of those who have earned his anger. Those people have earned his anger who worship God and invoke his name whilst ignoring the conditions he has put on them to do so – namely, they have not awakened their souls and they have ignored spiritual knowledge. God does not accept the worship of the people in whose fate he has not written faith.

– Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi has explained how to recognise if God has guided someone. God guides the heart. It is not your fleshy heart that God guides. It is the spiritual heart that sits atop the fleshy heart. There are 180 000 veils on top of the heart that do not get burnt through worship, fasting etc. To awaken the heart, you need the merciful sight of the spiritual guide, which will burn those veils. The spiritual guide will implant the seed of God’s name in your heart. Then the repetition of God’s name in your heart will begin. This is guidance from God.

– Guidance from God is not given without God’s permission. Before the spiritual guide implants the seed of God’s name in the aspirant’s heart, he takes his likeness to the court of God. God asks, ‘Why have you brought him?’ The spiritual guide replies, ‘He wants to befriend you.’ Then if God is in the mood to guide the aspirant, he will investigate his beliefs and actions. After being completely satisfied, God will command that his heart be initiated with God’s name. Then the spiritual guide, with God’s permission, will implant the seed of God’s name in the heart of the aspirant.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Ibadat Ke Bawajood Aaj Ka Musalman Maghloob Kiyon Hai!

#AskYounusAlGohar | Ibadat Ke Bawajood Aaj Ka Musalman Maghloob Kiyon Hai!

Younus AlGohar speaks on the misconceptions about God’s love that most Muslims have.

Main points:

– The main goal of every religion has been God’s love. There is a misconception about divine love: people think their worship and fasting is proof of their love for God. However if we ask them, ‘If you wife does everything for you, is that a guarantee that she loves you?’ So then how are your prayers, fasting and giving of alms guarantors of your love for God? It may be that your wife cleans your clothes, looks after your kids and cooks and cleans because she lives in your house; if she doesn’t you might divorce her. Similarly you might worship to avoid hell.

– If Muslims would become a lover of God from worship, why are they separated into different denominations? The first condition in Islam, the core of the religion, is declaration by the tongue and affirmation by the heart – which Muslims today don’t have. Their hearts don’t have divine energy; they don’t have faith.

– Proof that Muslims today are not Momineen (true believers): according to the Quran, God said they would be dominant upon the world as long as they were Momineen. Today, Muslims are not dominant upon the world; rather they are suffering. This proves they are not Momineen.
