Are Sufis Guided By Books? | By Younus AlGohar

What is Sufism? Who are Sufis and are they guided by books? How to recognise a fake Sufi? Find the answers in Younus AlGohar’s enlightening lecture on Sufism.

Main Points:

– These are the most turblent times in human history. The turbulence is caused by religious malfunctioning. Radicalisation is being hammered into the minds of youths and aspiring Muslims by the ignorant scholars of the religion who claim to be Sufis.

– Sufism is not a practice. Sufism is a mechanism and the mechanics of Sufism are rooted deep down in the heart. If you don’t know about Sufism you will think whatever the scholars tell you is Sufism, however, they themselves are unaware. Yes

– Tahir ul Qadri claims to be a Sufi scholar; all the knowledge he has about Sufism is what he has gathered from reading thousands of books on Sufism. This is not how you obtain guidance.

– God dispenses guidance in different ways, however, the recipient of guidance is your heart. Opening of the Spiritual Heart is the gateway to Spirituality and Sufism. If you claim to be a Sufi but do not know about Opening of the Spiritual Heart, you are a greater terrorist than Abu Bakkar al-Baghdadi.

Talk2Me Radio UK Interviews Younus AlGohar on Wahhabism

Talk2Me Radio UK Interviews Younus AlGohar on Wahhabism

Talk2Me Radio UK Interviews Younus AlGohar on Wahhabism

Talk2Me Radio in United Kingdom invited HH Younus AlGohar to speak on Wahhabism. Below is the written transcript of the full interview.

To hear the complete audio of the interview – click here.

Q: Can you explain what is Wahhabism, please?

Wahhabism has been attributed to a form of Islam; however, if you go deeper into the background information of Wahhabism, Wahhabism is a set of extreme, fanatic belief system in which Wahhabis do not recognise any other form of Islam. Especially, they are really against Sufis and Shia Muslims.

What we see today in the world in form of Islamic terrorism is actually Wahhabism.

Q: As I understand it, broadly speaking there are two main sects within Islam: Sunni and Shia – that is the main divide. Like Catholic and Protestant in Christianity. And then there are sub-divides within them. Where does Sufism fit in that divide?

Of course, Islam has been divided into two main sects of Islam which is Sunni and Shiite. Sunni’s are supported by Saudi Arabia and Shitte’s by Iran. Sufism is the form of islam in which people practise spirituality, like Mevlana Rumi and so many other Sufis in Islam who talked about peace, who talked about love and who never hold a grudge against anybody, who are very tolerant, and they love everybody, they love all the religions.They are the ones who are called Sufis.

Q: They’re kind of esoteric?

Yes, true.

Q: What form of Islam were you involved in?

I was born in a Sufi practising family. I practised Sufism and later on, I got tired of religions and I adopted divine love – Sufism. I do not adhere myself to any religion right now.

Q : Having heard some of the Muslim apostates, I heard that leaving Islam is punishable by death. Is that the case? Is that a widely held belief or is it just an extremist belief?

This is very much the thought of the mainstream Muslims. If you leave the religion of Islam, according to the Muslim faith, the punishment is death penalty. That is true.

Q: That is a shock to me. I would certainly not expect that to be the case from a mainstream point of view. If that is where we are at, surely that is something more people should know about. It should be discussed on a mainstream platform, don’t you think?

I have spoken on this subject many times and I can really give a long lecture on this point. But this is what Muslims all over the world understand, that if one leaves the religion of Islam, then he must be killed.

Q: If someone is listening to this conversation who maybe is a Muslim and part of Islam and they want to leave, what is actually the sensible way of going about that without causing problems?

The best thing is to leave the Muslim country where you are, go somewhere else and leave the religion. However if you live in Saudi Arabia or all these Arab countries and you publicly announce that you have left Islam, then you are inviting trouble.

Q: So go quietly, I guess is what we are saying. I want to tackle this word Wahhabism. Some people have a problem with the word, Wahhabism. Don’t they call it Salafist? They have another word for it? Why is it that they have a problem with that word?

Actually, these two different Islamist movements – one comes from Saudi Arabia and the other comes from Egypt. The one that comes from Egypt, Ikhwan ul Muslimeen, they know themselves as Salafis. The Wahhabis come from Saudi Arabia, but they don’t want to be known as Wahhabis. They call themselves Sunni Muslims however they practise the cult of Wahhabism.

Q: So what is the root origin of that word?

Wahhabism comes from Saudi Arabia. There was a guy known as Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab, he was from the central province of Saudi Arabia. He was denounced by his own father for his extremist views, however later on, people started to like his stand on Islam and his extreme views on Islam. This is how it progressed.

Later on, about 100 years ago, when Saudi Arabia was part of the Ottoman Empire, these Wahhabis with the Saudi royal family, formed an alliance and they defeated the governor of the Ottoman Empire. This is how they gained power in Saudi Arabia in the early 1900s. This is when Wahhabism started to make a stronghold for themselves. Then the oil money, which was like a stamp on their progression. Now they’re spending billions of dollars on widespread of Wahhabism all over the world. This doctrine of hatred has now taken place in the hearts of young Muslims all over the world.

Those who practise Wahhabism do not need to be further radicalised because Wahhabism itself is an extreme radicalisation. Those who practise Wahhabism, inside their heart, they are potential terrorists. They can carry out any atrocity, any act of terrorism anywhere in the world. Because this is the principles of Wahhabism. For except themselves, they do not consider anybody else to be true Muslims. Those who are not Wahhabis, they must be killed and all their properties must be forfeited by them.

Q: Famously, the victims of Islamist terrorism tends to be Muslims statistically more than anyone else. If we could wave a magic wand and remove those ideas of Wahhabism and Salafism and be left with moderate Islam. If we could tackle the problem of Wahhabism/Salafism islam, would we still have a so-called clash of civilisations on our hands? Would we still have a problem in this country?

The civilisation clash is not as severe as the dangers which is caused by Wahhabis. If we can take care of the Salafists and Wahhabis in the UK, we would be saving a lot of lives. We would be saving a lot of peace for ourselves. We have to take care of these Salafists and Wahhabis. I think this is the most dangerous thing. Not just in the UK of GB, but all over the world. These Salafis and Wahhabis must be taken care.

Q: How do you propose to do that? How can people be taken care of who have beliefs with which we disagree?

We have been working on this campaign: Ban Wahhabism. We have carried out this campaign in India, USA and UK as well. Somehow or other, our petition was removed from change.org in India and also USA. People are becoming more and more aware. We have to keep raising awareness of the potential danger of Wahhabism. One day people will come to know what is the cause of this international terrorism.

Q: Let’s hope this conversation is a beginning to that process here in the minds of people listening in the UK.

Recognise A True Sufi In The Light Of HDE Gohar Shahi’s Teachings
2nd March 2017|LecturesVideos

Recognise A True Sufi In The Light Of HDE Gohar Shahi’s Teachings

Younus AlGohar explains what a true Sufi is and how a true Sufi is recognised. He discusses why giving this information to the common public led many fake Sufis and religious clerics to oppose His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Main points:

– In order to preserve a religion, you need to spiritualise it. Religion without spirituality becomes a monster. Every religion when the spiritual system within that religion was destroyed, was made subject to great violence in the name of the religion and God. God granted every messenger two types of knowledge. One is knowledge that deals with exterior cleanliness and rituals of the religion. The other knowledge is the core of religion: knowledge which awakens your soul, enlightens your heart and purifies your ego. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi declared, ‘The exterior form of knowledge without accompanying the interior knowledge is a great mischief.’

– HDE Gohar Shahi is the super spiritual scientist. HDE Gohar Shahi doesn’t simply tell you what to do; rather, he tells you the consequences and benefits of doing something. He tells you what knowledge will benefit your souls. He is a bold critic on contemporary religious practices all over the world.

– HDE Gohar Shahi explains how to recognise a true Sufi. HDE Gohar Shahi explains that only a thief will recognise a thief and in a similar way, only is a saint is spiritually capable of recognising another another saint of God. Nevertheless, HDE Gohar Shahi gives common people to criteria through which they can test to see if someone is appointed by God. All you need to do is ask your spiritual mentor to initiate your heart into spirituality (grant you Opening of the Spiritual Heart); if he can make your Spiritual Heart engage in remembrance of God, he is a true Sufi.

– In countries like Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, there are many fake Sufis who con innocent people out of their wealth. These are people who claim to be Sufis but they do not have the power to initiate anyone’s heart into spirituality; they have not purified their ego or reached any stage of enlightenment. When HDE Gohar Shahi came, he told people the criteria to recognise a true Sufi so many of these fake Sufis were exposed. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi does not advise people to be religious, but rather spiritual. HDE Gohar Shahi’s presence and teachings caused a revolution in the minds and hearts of people; they began to recognise the fake Sufis and ignorant religious clerics for who they really were. HDE Gohar Shahi’s teachings pose a threat to all those who sell the religion and loot unsuspecting people. Therefore, the religious clerics and fake Sufis from all sects in Pakistan united in opposition of HDE Gohar Shahi.

– It was not just religious clerics and fake Sufis who turned against HDE Gohar Shahi. The police, politicians, army, secret services, thieves and custom officers across Pakistan also became part of the alliance against HDE Gohar Shahi. This was because HDE Gohar Shahi was exposing the corruption in Pakistani society and inviting people to obtain enlightenment so that corruption could be eradicated. He wanted to introduce people to spiritual and moral culture. Journalism in Pakistan too became a disinformation cell against HDE Gohar Shahi. Because the common public in Pakistan had been told a great bundle of lies about HDE Gohar Shahi, we ask those who oppose HDE Gohar Shahi based on hearsay to study Him and His teachings for themselves.

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.

The Essentiality of Spirituality in Religion
21st February 2017|Articles

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.

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

The Purpose of Imam Mehdi’s Advent

Adam Safi Allah (Adam the Eminent One) was the first whom God granted the esoteric knowledge and last of 14 000 different species of Adam created by God.

Prior to Adam Safi Allah, none of the progenies of 13 999 Adams were granted the esoteric knowledge; hence they were unable to connect with God and reach Him. Since the esoteric knowledge was not granted to them, therefore their souls and other spiritual faculties had been dormant and deprived of capitalising human instinct.

Human instinct in man reflects in his character only when the souls in him are awakened and enlightened.

If the souls remain dormant in a man, he doesn’t develop human characteristics such as pure love, gratitude, forgiving the offenders and other positive traits.

With the help of the esoteric knowledge, one awakens and enlightens his souls, and discovers within him the original human characteristics and sense of superior creation.

Since progenies prior to Adam Safi Allah were not granted the esoteric knowledge, they couldn’t recognise divinity and its traits. Therefore they were easily misled and engaged in mischief and bloodshed. Today, humanity has lost that esoteric knowledge which connects man with God and awakens human characteristics in him.

Imam Mehdi has revived the esoteric knowledge once again, to uplift humanity to higher levels of spirituality so as to revive Human Characteristics in all human beings again. And this is the purpose of Imam Mehdi’s advent!

This article was first posted on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page. Learn more about the different species of Adam and the hidden history of man in the sacred book penned by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love).

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The most important thing in spirituality is to be a steadfast seeker. You should have unshakeable self-esteem. You should know what you are doing.When you know what you are doing, then do not back off until you reach your destination.

God does not like people who back off when the conditions around them are not favourable.

God wants to test how serious you are! Your determination will be established when no hurdle on Earth can stop you from what you want to get. If there are not enough hurdles to stop you, you are really determined. Determination is the name for different emotional states. For example, it refers to when you are steadfast, when you are clung to whoever you belong.

No matter how hard it gets to survive, even if you are hanging by a cliff, rest assured that you will not fall.

In the line of spiritual love, you have to have determination. The hurdles of the way will definitely [chip away at] your determination. Every time you are weakened by those hurdles, boost your determination by the fact that you belong to the Almighty and the Almighty is watching over you. Know that you are not alone.

No matter how many times you fall, do not stop. Keep falling, but keep journeying as well. Fall down, get up again and go. Repeat.

You must keep going no matter how many times you fall. The devil wants you to fall, so that you are emotionally put off and you quit the journey.

Don’t quit the journey; if you stumble, ask for help and the Lord will help you.

This was an excerpt of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer of AlRa TV, who had already obtained Invocation of the Heart. It was originally posted on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page.

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).’

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?
17th November 2016|Articles

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

‘Mr Younus, Elon Musk said that there is a chance that we are living in a computer simulation. Are we? And are there multiple universes?’ — Mir Shahmir

It is a very delicate point. The world or the universe itself is not simulated by a computer. However, with the help of computer science, we can do a lot of things.

In a sense, science and technology have advanced to a degree where you can do things which may appear to be a miracle.

For example, we now have test-tube babies. If a woman doesn’t want to marry or touch a man, but she wants a baby, [she can have it by in vitro fertilisation]. She could take sperm from a donor, which could be injected into her body. This is what people can do today.

Science has advanced to a degree now where scientists are trying to outclass God.

It is a proven fact: even in the past, whenever — with the help of science, technology and whatever knowledge they had — human beings tried to interfere with the acts of God, God destroyed them.

There is a story about ancient Greek people in the Holy Book, The Religion of God (Divine Love). God commanded Gabriel to go and destroy them by flooding, so they quickly made walls of glass. They were saved because they were able to hear God. So then God asked Gabriel to destroy them by stoning. The glass was broken by the stones and they were destroyed.

You can’t play smart with God because he has all the power.

This intellect you have reflects God’s intelligence. So you may conclude that whatever you think, God will think along the same line. What you have in your head as intellect, it reflects the divine intellect.

People are now trying to interfere with God and his acts.

For example, let’s talk about cloning. The thing is, scientists can do anything, but what about the soul inside it? Obviously, as a result of that cloning process, there will be a living being identical [to the original], and that living being will definitely have terrestrial souls. However, there will not be any celestial souls, which will mean that the clone will not have the same level of intelligence as [the original has].* It will be deprived of emotions — hatred, love and everything else. What is the use of producing such a thing which is incapable of many human traits?

People are trying to be smarter than God, however they can never be. God is a genius as compared to us. We think he is a genius because he can do things we cannot. It is not possible for someone created by God to be [smarter than him]; if you were created by God, God would not give you the same level of intelligence he possesses himself. If somebody has more intelligence than God has, then that somebody must be from the Unseen World.

The way His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals secrets pertaining to the creation of this universe, to the creation of humankind, to the different species of Adam, to the different levels of intellectuality and to the different levels of spirituality — it is mind-boggling.

Revealing upon human beings what has been kept hidden by God and then declaring them to be the most obscure secrets of God — this can only come from HDE Gohar Shahi.

By far, HDE Gohar Shahi has exhibited through His acts and practice of love that whatever level of intelligence He has exhibited is far greater than the core intelligence of God.

This universe is simulated by a computer to a certain degree. But if you become divine and enlightened, you move your fingers and you will move mountains.

Forget about computer simulation. When you become a humble servant of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, then you will simulate the world with your finger.

Multiple Universes

For the sake of answering your question, I will say, ‘Yes there are many different types of universe.’ But then again, you’re not able to practically go and witness it, so what is the point in discussing it? Unless you’re planning to apply to HDE Gohar Shahi to become His servant — because only then can you possibly witness existence of other types of universe.

We’re living on a single little planet, Earth, and we do not intend to explore every single planet that is floating in this universe. We have not been given the potential of migrating from one planet to another. Man set his foot on the Moon only after the Final Hour, when all the living beings on the Moon were destroyed by God. As long as people lived there, human beings who lived on this planet were not able to go and witness their counterparts [on the Moon].

We can only fly from Pakistan to India, India to Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka to America, Canada, Australia etc. We cannot possibly migrate from one planet to another, especially the planets which are currently inhabited by human beings like ourselves. The planet we are living on is not a secure place. Countries of this planet only think of their own safety. However [other] planets have been made secure but their inhabitants.

Migration from one universe to another is not physically possible for you. I am not saying that it is not physically possible at all; it is possible provided you have the means of travel and ability to switch from your type of oxygen to their type of oxygen. But you don’t have this facility and ability.

On this planet, water is made of two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. Maybe [on another planet], there are three molecules hydrogen with oxygen which forms water. The chemical equation of our water is H2O; maybe on Mars, it is H3O.

It is interesting that the Sun is the ultimate source of hydrogen; the Sun is shining on the seas and rivers. Even then, the water does not absorb more than two molecules of hydrogen from the sun-rays. This is because the oxygen of this world has only two ports of radicals; maybe oxygen [of another planet] is different and has four ports of radicals.

This universe is vast and it is such a shame that you cannot travel. Some people are born in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan; they live all their lives in those countries and they die. There are still some people in India and Pakistan haven’t seen a train, let alone traveling in an airplane. We live in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, etc. even then, I never imagined myself traveling in a spaceship and going to the Moon.

Hopping into other universes is least possible even to imagine. However [things change] when you are a disciple of HDE Gohar Shahi. Firstly, you do not become a disciple by simply saying that you want to or [paying a fee].

You become HDE Gohar Shahi’s disciple when your soul is infused with HDE Gohar Shahi and you become a citizen of the extra-celestial Unseen World. That is the culmination of all that exists. When you reach the culmination of all that exists today, then migrating from one universe to another is child’s play.

When you reach the culmination of the farthest place that can exist — something you can’t even imagine — then migration from one universe to another is not a problem. Right now, you are caged by gravitational force. As a result of gravity, you can’t go anywhere. Speed is the resistance against gravity. You apply force and power; then you [move]. What happens when you go into space? There is no gravity; [so if] you don’t apply force, you just float.

Let me just end it on this note: it is possible to simulate the universe partially with the help of a [scientifically advanced] computer, but it would not be a full throttle simulation. Secondly, there are different types of universe — but then, seeing is believing. I can tell you many things, but if you’re not able to witness it, it is like fiction to you.

If you become worthy spiritually, you can travel from one universe to another. However, do not forget: the Quran has mentioned that whatever is between the skies and earth belongs to God; so God is only talking about this universe. It will [probably] never happen — but for the sake of answering your question, if you happen to set your foot in another universe, do not forget that that universe has a different creator.

Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of India, not the entire world. The United Kingdom has a different Prime Minister. When you go to Canada, they have a different Prime Minister. When you set your foot in another universe, you’ll have to find out who its creator is.

There are different types of universe but all these different planets in this universe were created by God. Quran 4:131 states, ‘To God belongs whatever is between the land and skies.’ This is about this particular universe that we are living in.

*According to the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, a human being is a compound creature made up of multiple spirits. The body is made of terrestrial souls which are responsible for things like its growth and appearance. The terrestrial souls have nothing to do with the higher realms.

What makes humanity different from animals is the presence of the celestial souls in them, which bring in them human emotions and sense. The celestial souls are what give man the potential to discover divinity. Learn all about the celestial spirits in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Self-realisation is a very profound subject, because your Self has different dimensions. You are not a single soul living; you’re a multi-spiritual being. Discovery of each soul has its own respective realisation, so self-realisation is a multi-layered realisation.

Not everybody is fully aware of who he is. They may have gone through vigorous spiritual austerities and acquired higher stages and statuses in spirituality, however when it comes to measuring the volume of self-realisation, it has always been incomplete.

In self-realisation, you start with your Carnal Self (Nafs) and you purify it. Then you come to know the purpose and use of this soul in you. You learn exactly what you should do to make it functional in your body.

Each soul has different functions. Some functions help you with your physical body and other spiritual functions will help you progress in your spiritual journey.

Knowing what functions one respective soul has is the realisation of what you have. For example, you may have a car, but if you don’t know what you use the car for, you don’t have car-realisation.

The Carnal Self is in your body but you do not know its functions. Realisation begins when you activate this particular soul that lies inactive in you, when you’re fully aware of its abilities and capabilities; not just that, but also you know how to master your Carnal Self, how to use it and how to perform spiritual journeys with it.

Realisation will go further up once you have attained the utter spiritual purity and cleansing of your Carnal Self. From there, you progress toward the purification of your spiritual heart. Having purified and revived the spiritual faculty of the heart, you will then come to know its functions.

Most Sufis only know about revival, awakening and enlightenment.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi doesn’t only talk about the enlightenment, revival and purification; Lord Ra Riaz also teaches the functions of the spiritual heart. He tells you exactly what you can do with the help of the spiritual heart.

For example, Lord Ra Riaz oftentimes talks about the first function of the spiritual heart as being a telephone operator when it is fully enlightened. You will be able to be in contact with God via one of the functions of the spiritual heart.

Your heart will become a mouthpiece with which you will be able to communicate with God.

Realisation is about obtaining enlightenment, purification, revival and on top of that, the usage. If you know what it is but you cannot use it, what is the point? In my understanding, the spiritual calibre of knowing and utilising the functions is realisation of the self.

There are seven souls in you. You should know what each soul can do for you, how each soul will push you towards God and what level of spiritual journey can be performed with what individual soul.

All these souls have their own functions; becoming a master and being able to learn all the functions is complete realisation of the self. You are not confined to your Carnal Self; your main self is your soul.

You should know what your soul can do, what your spiritual heart can do, what Sirri (The Most Obscure) can do and what Akhfah (The Most Hidden) can do.

Revival and enlightenment is one thing, but then to be able to use the souls well according to their purpose is true realisation.

For example, if your Akhfah is enlightened and you also know the functions, then you don’t need a telephone. You’ll just think about someone, you’ll speak and that person will hear you no matter where he is.

There were no loudspeakers in the past. People say that there used to be 70 000 attendees who would come to the lectures of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (a renowned Sufi). There was no system of loudspeakers or sound system; even then, every single person in his attendance would clearly hear his speech. People declared it a miracle. It is a miracle, but nothing just happens without a system, even miracles. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani would lessen the usage of his tongue and increase the amount of his Akhfah; so on a distance, people would hear him well. However, this was a one-time miracle.

We have seen more miracles than this in every speech delivered by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. There was no sound system, yet Lord Ra Riaz would be speaking and [His voice] would be echoing. This was the Akhfah.

Most spiritualists from different religions only know about enlightening and reviving the souls; they are not aware of what you can do with the souls. Through the Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love, we learned the functions of the souls.

To summarise: there are seven respective souls in the body. Enlightening, awakening and purifying them, making them functional and reaching your destination with the help of these functions is the main thing. This is complete self-realisation.
