The Importance of Spirituality

Younus AlGohar explains how he embarked on the spiritual path under Lord Ra Riaz’s auspicious mentorship.

Main points:

– An overwhelming majority of people believe in a religion just because they inherited those beliefs, not because they have a purpose in mind. When you want to buy a television, you compare prices and brands before committing to one product. Why not take this approach to religion?

– Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi regarding those who came to Him wishing to obtain God’s love, said, ‘I’ll initiate their hearts. If God accepts them, I vow to be with them as a guiding light until they reach their destination.’

– If you want to have access to the realm of angels, you need to enlighten and awaken the corresponding soul inside your body.

– The heart can act like a divine telephone between man and God. Lord Ra Riaz said, ‘When you become a friend of God and you are in trouble, God will instantly know that you are in trouble. When you’re in trouble, the voice of your heart has a hint of sadness when it reaches God. God then commands angels to help you before you raise hands in prayer.

– The only difference between good and bad, God and the Devil, people of Imam Mehdi and people of Dajjal (Antichrist) – is spiritual knowledge. If you have knowledge of the exterior without the knowledge of interior, you will definitely be corrupted in your mind and heart.

– The only thing that will protect your faith is spirituality. Without it, it doesn’t make a difference whether you are a Shia, Sunni or Wahhabi.

Religion Without Spirituality is Mischief
10th February 2016|LecturesVideos

Religion Without Spirituality is Mischief

Younus AlGohar establishes how Islam is dead without spiritual knowledge and how essential spiritual knowledge is. He also explains why and how Sharia is mischief without spirituality.

Main points:

  • In Islam and Judaism, those who talked about spirituality were always condemned and disapproved of by the mainstream religion. Sufism (spirituality) had been the centre of Islamic teachings until 200 years ago. Wahhabis were the pioneers of rejecting Sufism, calling it unIslamic – although there have been Sufis all over the world.
  • Religion comprises of two vital types of knowledge. Spirituality is the life of every religion; the exterior aspect isn’t given as much importance. Islam is alive only when spirituality is practised. If spirituality is separated from it, it is dead no matter how many people perform rituals. Radicalisation is the result of Sharia being practised without the spiritual knowledge. Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Islamic scholarship, without the knowledge of spirituality, is a greater mischief.’
  • Quran says that worshippers who are naive to the truth of worship are destructed. Their worship is not reaching God; rather, they’re showing off. It doesn’t mean physical destruction, but destruction of faith and character. What does showing off mean? Their worship will not reach God, but people think they are dedicated worshippers. When this happens, people’s respect for such a person boosts their ego, destroying them spiritually. Such a person becomes a live threat to moral values in society. That’s how Sharia becomes mischief.
  • Truth of worship would have entered your heart only if you practised spirituality. Spirituality enlightens hearts, manifesting truth on the screen of the heart. Since people don’t practise spirituality among Muslims, therefore their Salat (worship) is futile, useless and not recognised by God.
  • Sharia is only good with spirituality which will control your heart and you won’t make wrong decisions. Spirituality makes you compassionate. Without spirituality, your heart will be as hard as stone and with spirituality, the heart will be soft. You will help all regardless of religion. However, Sharia without spirituality (now or even at the time of Prophet Mohammad), was, is and will remain to be mischief forever.

The Muslim Reform Movement – A Realistic Cause?
19th January 2016|LecturesVideos

The Muslim Reform Movement – A Realistic Cause?

Younus AlGohar passes his remarks about the realistic outcome of the Declaration of the Muslim Reform Movement, an initiative started by Muslims in Canada and around the world in response to the rise of Islamic terrorism.

Main points:

  • The cause is wonderful but it will not bring any change. Reforms have to come from the highest authority in Islam: God. It is not the duty of the people to reform Islam, but rather the duty of those delegated by God to make reformations.
  • In reality, what is written has not application, no implementation. It is not going to produce any results because the Muslim world will not accept this movement as an authority on Islam.
  • Certain points in the declaration are not reformations to be made in Islam but rather the opinions of individuals.
  • Islam cannot be reformed; it is damaged beyond repair. If reformations are to be made in Islam, they will be so lengthy that after the reforms, Islam will be changed unrecognisably.

When a Religion Malfunctions
14th January 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

When a Religion Malfunctions

The world is full of problems and these problems are manmade. Some of these problems are the product of the world political structure and some of the problems are the product of desires of power, money and other worldly desires. Some of the problems are created by confusion among religions.

How a Religion Malfunctions

When a religion becomes spiritually deserted and is not spiritually nurtured by its founder and divinely anointed mentors, that religion becomes a monster. 

A religion has always been a very personal sort of thing; it is a connection between man and God. Islam is only about 1450 years old, as compared to others, it’s the latest religion and it is the last celestial religion. Christianity is almost 2100 years old and Judaism is more or less between 4000-5000 years old. Every religion, when the spiritual system expired in it, produced problems. When the divinely fixed validity of that religion expired, there came a by-product. For example, if you leave anything unattended, which is not supervised and maintained, it becomes corrupted.

Similarly, when a religion expires it simply means that it is not monitored by its founder spiritually. Anything that goes wrong with the philosophy of the religion and any adulteration made by its followers is not fixed by God or by its founder spiritually.

[The religion] becomes as dirty as a garbage bin. If there is a garbage bin and you throw all sorts of trash in it, when it stays that way, it becomes stinky. This is what happens to a religion when it has expired and it is not supervised by any spiritual authority, when it is not monitored by its custodian. When it is not maintained by God, it becomes a monster. It starts to malfunction.

religion is [there] to form the characters of its followers, teach them how to live in a society, maintain justice.

Nobody is to deprive anybody of their rights and there should be no discrimination, no killing and no dishonesty. With the help of the religion, you begin to respect everybody’s rights. For example, when we drive on the roads and we come to a mini roundabout, if you have passed your driving test in the United Kingdom, you would know that anybody coming from your right hand side has the right to pass first, and you have priority over the traffic which is coming from your left hand side. So, with this understanding, you reach a mini roundabout – and if somebody is not following these instructions, you start swearing. Why? It’s because somebody is depriving you of your right.

This deprivation of rights creates anger.

In the United Arab Emirates, you may be standing in a queue an hour, and all of a sudden, a white-costumed guy will come and jump the queue. If you tell him, ‘Why are you jumping the queue?’ He will say, ‘Because I am a national of this country.’ This is deprivation of rights.

When you live in a society [you have to follow the rules]. Before you are able to drive legally, you have to go through two different tests: the knowledge test in which you begin to understand what you can do and can’t do, what is safe for you and others, and what sign means what. When you have cleared the first test, then you take the practical test in which you are told about the rights of pedestrians. Pedestrian have more rights on the road than the drivers.

Knowledge is all about telling you what is good and what is bad. Now, it depends on you: if you are good, you will do good things and if you are bad you will do bad things.

In a similar way, religion is like a driving test. When you embark upon your journey in life, the first thing you do is go to school, pre-school, then high school and you begin to understand what your rights are, what you can and cannot do to others. But in the modern times, all these institution in the west are becoming helpless because moral and ethical values are not part of any curriculum. If you are studying science, you will become a scientist, but you don’t know how to live as a good human being, how to live happily, how to respect others and their rights. It’s because you don’t have the knowledge, you haven’t been trained. You don’t have the moral and ethical values, therefore, you only care about yourself and you become a self-centred person.

When you become corrupted, even with moral and ethical values, you become self-centred. You don’t want to follow the rules and regulations of life. 

If you read the Human Rights Charter of United Nations, you would think somebody wrote it after having read the Bible or Quran because it is so beautiful.

If somebody is in need, help them. If your neighbour is starving, go and give them food. If you don’t do that, then your relationship with your prophet or God, and your piety, will be greatly affected. This is how much taking care of a human being is valued in the religion.

But when extreme philosophies are introduced in the religion, when fanaticism plays havoc with the divine texts, when brains are hammered into with the wrong interpretations of the holy book, you become a monster.

You think you are in a race against all other human beings. You think you are the best, you are the holiest one and everybody else is an infidel. This is exactly what happened in the case of Islam.

I commented on one of the verses of Quran and the outcome of my commentary was that in the light of Quran, Christians and Jews are infidels. Now, a lot of Muslims are swearing at me but what I said is in the Quran, this is Islam.

Jews have a book called Torah, Christians have a book called Bible, Muslims have a book called Quran. Followers of these religions are called People of the Book. According to the Muslim faith, People of the Book can marry each other, they don’t have to change their religion. This means a Muslim man can marry a Jewish or Christian woman, or a Jewish man can marry a Christian or Muslim woman; this is in the Islamic faith.

What is being projected under the label of Islam is that Christians and Jews are your enemies and they are infidelsthis is a severe misleading and hateful propaganda conducted by Wahhabis only. 

If God is allowing Muslims to marry a Christian or a Jew, how can they make a Christian their wife or husband, not their friend? It is not even short-sightedness, it is blindness. Muslims should be more friendly to Jews because Jews come from [the lineage of] Isaac and Muslims come from Ismail; both Isaac and Ismail are brothers, so basically Jews and Muslims are cousins. Father of Isaac and Ismail is Abraham.

If you study Islam, you will come to know that in every worship, you have to send benedictions and salutations to Abraham and his progeny. If you don’t do that, your worship is not acceptable, according to Islam.

For example, Al-Safa and Al-Marwah [two hills situated in Masjid al Haram in Mecca] was where Prophet Abraham, upon God’s orders, left his concubine, Haggard, and his son, Ismail. When Ismail was really thirsty, Haggard left her son and went running in search for water. Now, it has become a ritual for a Muslim to run in that area like Haggard, and this is worship for them. 90% of the rituals in the pilgrimage of Hajj is in the memory of Abraham.

The appointment and anointment of Prophet Mohammad was the result of Abraham’s prayers to God. Abraham prayed to God that he wanted a son in this part of the Arabian Peninsula for the guidance of humankind, and it was heard. Every Muslim knows about it. All Muslims must respect Abraham as much as Jews do. Being a Muslim, if you don’t respect Abraham, you are not a Muslim. Look what they have done to Islam.

Terrorism Today

The Islam that we see today is not even a reflection of Islam, it is something else altogether. It is a monstrous set of beliefs. It has nothing to do with the doctrine of blessings which were given to the world by Prophet Mohammad. 

Wahhabis have become an international terror group and Iran is a regional player. They are both terrorists. Iran does not have that much money, so they are local players. Iran is fuelling sectarian hatred in so many countries in the neighbourhood. Iran has its paws stuck in Yemen, Pakistan, Bahrain and Dubai. There is a lot of influence in Dubai from Iran.

Iran is a regional terrorist. Terrorism in Pakistan is fuelled by two countries: Iran and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia a big player in the field of terrorism.

Iran is a poor, meek character, which is why the UK and US are able to put sanctions on Iran. Iran is a devil, but Saudi Arabia is a super devil. 

Bashar ul Assad is a Shiite and Iran is a supporter. Our governments become angry when they see Russia is helping Bashar ul Assad, but they never talk about Iran. Iran is helping Bashar ul Assad more than Russia is. Iran has created problems in Iraq, Iran has created problems in Lebenon. Hezbollah is backed by Iran.

There have been sanctions on Iran but what about Saudi Arabia? Everybody now knows that Saudi Arabia is the principle financier, sponsor and creator of terrorism.

ISIS is just one little outfit. Saudi Arabia is beheading more people than ISIS. They beheaded 41 people in one day, including one Shiite cleric. They are doing it in the same way as ISIS does, with the same philosophy.

Everything is the same. Raqqa is a city where ISIS has its stronghold and they have implemented their Sharia in that area. The religious police system they have introduced are holding guns and roaming around the areas looking at every single passers-by, like how many women are under veils and whether or not their veils are okay. When it time for prayers, they see how many people are going to the mosque; and those who are not going to the mosque are arrested and punished. Beheadings takes place in public. It is the same system as Saudi Arabia.

When will the western leaders become sincere in their efforts to crush terrorism and their principle ideology?

The Pakistan Army began an operation called Zarb-e-Azb, which even the US is praising – but right under their noses in Islamabad, there is a mosque called Lal Masjid and Molvi Abdul Aziz (the cleric of the mosque), who is a radical hate-preacher, is openly announcing that he is in favour of ISIS and Daesh. Recently, 140 girls pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Operation Zarb-e-Azb is only being carried out in the Northern areas, but are they the only ones who are terrorists? What about Punjabis? What about all people who live in Karachi? There was a time when Pathans were more into terrorism, but right now, Pathans have been outnumbered by Punjabis in terrorism. The Taliban in Pakistan are 99% Punjabi.

 If the Pakistani army is sincere in curbing terrorism, then they should declare a war against Wahhabism.

There are no more Muslims in this world, just Wahhabis and Shiites.

Jews & Christians Are Not Infidels – Proved by Quran! – Younus AlGohar
1st January 2016|LecturesVideos

Jews & Christians Are Not Infidels – Proved by Quran! – Younus AlGohar

Wahhabis have been evidently proven to be a factory of disinformation about Islam, the Quran and Prophet Mohammad, and they have portrayed a very ugly image of Islam which is completely opposite to what Islam is in its essence. For example, they consider the USA, UK and Europe their enemies and Kuffar (Infidels).

Who is a Kafir (Infidel) and what is the true definition of a Kafir in the light of the Quran?

Let me first remind you: what Wahhabis have projected to the world is that all Christians and Jews are Kafireen (Infidels), and they have to fight and kill them. This is a misleading, anti-Islamic, anti-Quranic and anti-Mohammad concept. The Quran does not say that. First, we need to understand what Kufr (infidelity) is and who were the Kuffar who were addressed.

The Quran says:

قُلۡ يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرُونَ (١) لَآ أَعۡبُدُ مَا تَعۡبُدُونَ (٢) وَلَآ أَنتُمۡ عَـٰبِدُونَ مَآ أَعۡبُدُ (٣) وَلَآ أَنَا۟ عَابِدٌ۬ مَّا عَبَدتُّمۡ (٤) وَلَآ أَنتُمۡ عَـٰبِدُونَ مَآ أَعۡبُدُ (٥) لَكُمۡ دِينُكُمۡ وَلِىَ دِينِ (٦)

[109:1-6]

‘Say, O’ Kafireen, I do not worship the one that you worship, nor do you worship the one that I worship. And nor will you worship what I worship. Your religion is with you and mine is with me.’

Even if the Christians and Jews, British, Americans, etc. were Kuffar, the ultimate message which we obtain from the Quran is that you tell them, ‘You practise your religion and I will practise my religion.’ That’s the end of the story! There is no lesson of intolerance. It doesn’t say I will kill you if you don’t practise my religion. These verses (109:1-6) are addressed to the confirmed Kuffar, because this is what the Quran has said.

Now, what I understand is that Abrahamic religions are monotheist religions. Judaism and Christianity are monotheist religions and Islam is a monotheist religion. Jews worship the same God as the Christians, and Muslims worship the same God as the Jews and Christians worship. This verse is not about Christians and Jews because it says, ‘I worship what you do not worship and you worship what I do not worship.’ Because Jews and Christians worship the same God as the Muslims, the infidels of Mecca whom the Quran mentions cannot be either Jews or Christians.

Then why do Wahhabis call Jews and Christians as Kuffar and attribute it to the Quran? This is massive corruption and a crime against God. Are Jews and Christians not Ahl-e-Kitab (followers of a books sent by the same God)? Muslims are bound by the fundamental principles of their religion to believe in all books sent by God, whether the book was sent to Abraham, Moses, Jesus or Mohammad. All four books were sent by God and Muslims must believe in them all. Judaism was a religion established by prophets and messengers sent by God; Christianity was established by Jesus, and Jesus was sent by God.

This verse is implying that there is a group of people, confirmed Kuffar, which did not worship the same God as Prophet Mohammad.

This idea that Jews and Christians are infidels and must be killed is a Wahhabi mischief and problem. The Wahhabis must be wiped out from the face of the world if you really want peace; they are worse than animals!
