#AskYounusAlGohar – What is the Purpose of Fasting?

#AskYounusAlGohar – What is the Purpose of Fasting?

Fasting is a struggle to purify your Carnal Self. To refrain from eating is just one aspect of fasting.

The purpose of fasting is to reduce the intake of Negative Energy (Naar) and increase the intake of Divine Energy (Noor).

Negative Energy enters your body at all times while you breathe. However when we eat, we obtain a lot [more] Negative Energy. So in a fast, you stop eating for 15-16 hours to stop the Carnal Self from obtaining its diet of Negative Energy. When a person gets ill, he stops eating; but in order to get well, you still have to take medicine. During a fast, different types of worship such as Taraweeh and Salat are all ways to increase Divine Energy in you.

Fasting was prescribed to Christians also. It was something which had been made a religious obligation upon many nations before Islam. You are trying to weaken your Carnal Self, which is the source of all evil in your body. However, keeping yourself away from consumption of food is just one very tiny element of inner purification.

During fasting, you refrain from consumption of all foods, but at the same time, you must be able to replace that Negative Energy with Divine Energy so that your Carnal Self becomes purified.

Therefore to practise fasting effectively, one has to be enlightened in the heart. One’s heart must be articulated with God’s name; one’s heart must have learnt the art of producing Divine Energy.

If your heart is still not open and you are fasting, the job is only half done. Since the job is only half done, it is not going to benefit you in any way.

You will feel like you’ve taken some depression tablets when you fast. You’ll feel like you have calmed down. That is all you will get by the half job. If you continue to practise fasting without an enlightened heart, it is not going to benefit you at all.

As a result, you can see we are in the holy month of Ramadan. However, those ‘Muslims’ especially who do not get tired proclaiming that they are the purest of all Muslims – instead of purifying themselves, they are busy in human slaughter. They’re carrying out an organised butchery of mankind. Had their hearts and thought processes been purified; had their inner selves been purged, they would not even want to harm a tiny insect.

I am explaining the spiritual mechanism of fasting. Fasting in one sentence is to cut down on the intake of Negative Energy and increase the intake of Divine Energy. This is only possible when your heart is enlightened and has learned the art of producing Divine Energy.

Those who take every aspect of the religion as a ritual don’t dig beyond that ritualistic understanding. They are just wasting their time. Their practice of any ritual is futile – a complete waste. You can see the results. There are over a billion Muslims all over the world. But to be honest with you, even with the education they have, practically speaking, they are the farthest from any moral or religious values. They are those who don’t even know what ethical values are. Their religiosity is based on blindfoldedly practised rituals.

These rituals will only benefit you when you have learnt to effectively receive the spiritual benefits of that practice. Therefore any religious practice today in the absence of spirituality is a complete waste of time and energy. The result is null and void. Simple as that.

A Special Message for Muslims on Ramadan by Younus AlGohar

A Special Message for Muslims on Ramadan by Younus AlGohar

A Special Message for Muslims on Ramadan by Younus AlGohar

We at Mehdi Foundation International wish you a joyous and blessed Ramadan (the Islamic holy month of fasting). With Ramadan fast-approaching, His Holiness Younus AlGohar delivers a special message for Muslims and offers key advice on how to ensure Ramadan begins on the most accurate date.

It is said that the beginning of Ramadan and Eid are determined by checking whether the Moon can be seen. However, this only applies for the city of Mecca, not outside it.

The centre of the Earth is Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the Moon appears above the centre of the Earth, over the Kaaba, that is the correct time to begin Ramadan. 

Our time zones used to be measured according to Greenwich Mean Time (in London, UK). For example, we would say that a time zone is four hours ahead of GMT, five hours behind it, etc. However, now we use UTC to measure time.

Similarly, once the Moon is sighted in Mecca above the Kaaba, that is when you start fasting. If you determine your fast according to this, you will never miss out on important days like Laila Tul Qadr or Eid. If you look at the Moon in the areas where the time zones are ahead of Mecca, that is wrong. No matter where you live, you must go according to whether the Moon is sighted in Mecca.

New Video: Imam Mehdi Humshakal-e-Mustafa Hain | By Younus AlGohar

Younus AlGohar explains how Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi will resemble Prophet Mohammad in appearance.

Main points:

- Muslim cerics and scholars object as to why we hold His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi on a higher esteem than Prophet Mohammad, however, this is not possible. HDE Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi's body inhabits the terrestrial spirits of Prophet Mohammad, therefore, Prophet Mohammad is a part of HDE Gohar Shahi. It's impossible to compare the two personalities.

- Even the Koran said in regards to Prophet Mohammad that his following era will be greater than his previous era. Ignorant clercis say that this is referred to the migration from Mecca to Medina, thus the time in Medina is greater for Prophet Mohammad.

- What the Koran refers to as the first era is the era in which Prophet Mohammad arrived as a prophet and his second, greater era is in which half his souls entered the body of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi. Therefore, those who have seen Prophet Mohammad will immediately recognise Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi.

- You cannot compare Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi and Prophet Mohammad. Prophet Mohammad loves Imam Mehdi so much so that they have become one. The proof is in front of your eyes in the Holy Black Stone; there are two heads attached to one body. One is Prophet Mohammad's and the other is Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi's.
