#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion?

#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion?

The following is Younus AlGohar’s reply to a question posed by a viewer during his daily live speeches on AlRa TV. You can tune in and ask Younus AlGohar questions every day at 10:00 PM UK time on the AlRa TV YouTube channel.

The Religion of God means that it is God’s religion. If you think it is a new religion, it must mean that God is also new. However, God is not new. It is the same God who sent Adam, Moses, Abraham, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammad.

Moses was influenced by The Religion of God and created a religion for mankind; Jesus was influenced by The Religion of God and created a religion for mankind. How can you claim that The Religion of God is a new religion?

The Religion of God and the Koran

It is written in the Koran, ‘O’ Prophet Mohammad, a day will come when you will see big chunks of human beings entering into The Religion of God.’ [Koran 110:2]

At another point, it says: ‘O’ Prophet, when The Religion of God is established in the world, then turn your face towards it because it is the religion of the future. All other religions will be wiped out but the majority of human beings are unaware of this.’ [Koran 30:30]

The majority of people don’t know that The Religion of God has to be established; Muslims think that Islam has been established and that’s the end of the story. If somebody is under the impression that Islam is the last religion and it will remain forever, they should know that Islam is not The Religion of God; it was established by Prophet Mohammad. According to the Koran, The Religion of God is greater than Islam.

The Koran instructed Prophet Mohammad to turn his face towards The Religion of God because it would be the religion of the future. The Koran was revealed when Islam had already been established. So Islam could not be The Religion of God that the Koran referred to.

The problem with clerics of Islam is that when they are proven wrong, they say, ‘That is not what that particular verse of the Koran actually means.’ Why don’t they use their common sense? Otherwise, they should say that Islam will be established in the future and that’s when Prophet Mohammad will turn his face towards it.

Do you think that Prophet Mohammad spent 23 years propagating Islam and even then, he didn’t manage to establish the religion? Do you think Prophet Mohammad’s face wasn’t already towards Islam when Koran 30:30 was revealed? That is like saying that the religion of Islam did not exist these verses of the Koran were revealed and that it would be made in the future. How ridiculous!

The clerics can confuse the common Muslims, but they cannot make a fool out of a learned man. I have read the Koran and different interpretations. My message to clerics is to stop misguiding the Muslim nation. Do not say ridiculous things which can cause Muslims to be further divided.

Types of Love | Younus AlGohar

Types of Love | Younus AlGohar

Amelika Confidence wrote a book called, ‘Religions and the Way to God’. He says to me, ‘You say that love is fundamental. What is love’s work. From where and to where does love go?’

He said to me, ‘If you have love and peace, or wish for them, you will welcome clean-hearted debate.’ In reply to this, I said to him, ‘Discussion is better than debate. I do not debate.’

Firstly, I did not say that love is fundamental. I talk about love and how to achieve love. I propagate the importance of love in a human’s life and I also discuss what the substance of love is and how to acquire love.

Regarding from where loves comes and to where it goes – love is not like a boat. Love is not like an airplane. Love is not transportation. What do you mean by, ‘From where it comes and to where it goes?’ I don’t understand it.

I’m sorry, but this is really bemusing. You need to understand different types of love. Love. metaphorically, is considered to be an outburst of emotions. That’s what people call love. These emotions have to be generated on a constant basis.

If you have an outburst of emotions for somebody for a few days and then it goes away, it is not love; it is infatuation, affection.

Affection

Affection is when you look at somebody physically and you like their body, you like their company because they are handsome or they are beautiful. You fall for the beauty of their body. It is called affection because it is affecting on you.

For example, you walk in a mall and see a woman who is wearing revealing clothes. You look at her and you want to keep looking art her. You forget why you are there. So in a way, you are affected. Suddenly, you forget everything and are just looking at that woman. If that woman was really unattractive, even if she was walking naked, you wouldn’t be affected. You would just continue doing whatever you were occupied. When we say, ‘Beautiful or ugly,’ it is to do with the body. Obviously, you are not looking at her soul or heart; you are looking at her body. This is why it is affection, sudden change.

Puppy Love

There is another type of love. When you are a child, you have innocent love. You have love for your toys and you fall out with other kids. You say, ‘This is my toy. I won’t let you play with it.’ Then you enter into a phase where you reach the age of puberty. When you reach the age of puberty and enter into adolescence, you begin to have feelings and vibes. If a girl at that time starts taking interest in you, you suddenly develop love. You become Romeo and think, ‘I have found the true love of my life. I’m going to sacrifice my life.’ That is fake understanding because the emotions that you have at the time are due to the fact that you entering into adolescence period. Before you reach puberty, you don’t have these kinds of emotions. But as you reach that age, the world changes. You’re not innocent anymore.

This outburst of emotion at the time when you reach the age of puberty is called puppy love or cupboard love. It doesn’t stay forever.

Because you have reached the age of puberty and there are new emotions, every time a girl takes interest in you, you think this is your true lover. You make a list of girlfriends. Every time you change a girlfriend, you think, ‘No, this is my true girlfriend.’ But as you become mature, you realise that it was nonsense. This is not love.

Divine Love

You have to be careful in defining divine love. You’re suppose to develop love for God and you haven’t seen or spoken with God. You don’t know anything about God. Whether you are a Muslim, Christian, Jew or you practise any other religion – you have the books and stories, but you have no personal experience about God.

How do you develop love for God? You look at a woman, her curves and her beauty and you fall in love with her. You have an outburst of emotions because you reach the age of puberty and you have puppy love. What about divine love? How do you have love for God?

Even if God has a handsome body, you haven’t seen him.

Some people think that becoming more religious, doing all the rituals and fulfilling all the commandments of God is God’s love. That’s obedience and practice of a religion. That is not love.

Then there are two types of love: conditional love and unconditional love.

It is very easy to say, ‘unconditional love,’ but unconditional love is very, very rare to be seen. When we say, ‘unconditional love,’ it means you have love for somebody and no matter what happens, this love will stay with you in your heart forever. Nothing will change.

For example, I respect you and you respect me. If I insult you, you will insult me. But if you have love for somebody and they insult you every day, do you think love in you heart for that person is not going to be affected? Of course it will be affected. If the other person doesn’t stop insulting and abusing, maybe this love will turn into hatred. There is a condition: if you behave well, I will love you. If you respect me, I will love you. If you  feed me, I will love you.

If somebody doesn’t do anything good, will you still love them? Humanly, it is not possible; but God has unconditional love. However, before unconditional love is granted to you by God, there are many conditions to be fulfilled.

I want to tell you how to obtain God’s love. Some people have a problem in their heart, so a pacer is installed inside the heart to generate ticking. In a similar way, we need an outburst of emotions for God in the heart.

There is no connection between you and God. How would you have emotions for God?

For a moment, just forget about God. If we say, ‘Please love Obama; he is very nice,’ can you do that? No.

There are many examples. Generally, men go after beautiful women who are fair in complexion, tall, etc. But we have heard, when the bird of love, Cupid, strikes on a heart, you will see that a man loves a woman who is not  beautiful at all. This is because somehow or other, he has emotions for her not for other women.

We need to generate an outburst of emotion for God. In order to do that, God’s light, God’ energy, has to be generated inside the heart through spirituality.

God’s name has his light; it is not like your name and my name. Spiritually, God’s name is implanted into the heart and thereafter, the heart will vibrate with God’s name constantly. As a result of this constant vibration of God’s name inside the heart, divine energy is generated. When enough divine energy has been accumulated inside the heart, you begin to have feelings for God.

When you have something from God inside your heart, it uplifts the outburst of emotions for God. This is the first stage of love. You begin to feel his light in your heart.

However, this love is not eternal. If you do something wrong and God doesn’t like it, then these emotions will be gone; this love may not stay forever.

The original form of love – which does not fade away and never disappears from the heart – is granted to an individual by God only when he is spiritually trained and makes a journey spiritually, by the soul of his head, and he arrives at a station where God will see him and he will see God.

The moment you see God, special energy will emanate from God’s body; it will come to you and will want to pull you towards God. This attraction from God is known as pure, unconditional love. It is natural.

If you have that energy that pulls you towards God, it will become unconditional love. Then, whatever happens, this love will never depart your heart.

Zamana-e-Aakhir Aur Qayaam-e-Deen-e-Ilahi

Younus AlGohar explains how God prepared humanity for his own religion, the Religion of God, by gradually increasing their spiritual knowledge with the advent of each messenger. He reveals Imam Mehdi’s role in dispensing God’s love to humankind.

Main points:

  • God made 13999 Adams with the clay of the Earth; they did not have spiritual knowledge so they were not connected with God. They practised religions in which they focused purely on worship of God and exoteric knowledge.
  • When God grew weary of religions he decided he wanted to send his own religion on Earth: his love. He wanted human beings to love him and become spiritually entwined with him.
  • Because the thought had never crossed man’s mind to connect with God, God did not immediately introduce the Religion of God for fear that human beings would neither understand it nor accept that it was possible to obtain union with God.
  • God then made Adam the Eminent One with the clay of paradise and gave him spiritual knowledge of the heart. He sent some knowledge from the Religion of God with Adam, some with Abraham, some with Moses, some with Jesus and some with Mohammad. This way, humanity would be prepared for the Religion of God.
  • Imam Mehdi will establish the Religion of God on Earth and bring the entire humanity into the fold of God’s rapturous love, elevating them in unprecedented ways.

Words of Wisdom By Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi – Younus AlGohar

Words of Wisdom By Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi – Younus AlGohar

I would like to introduce the divine writing of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Cover_of_The_Religion_of_God_by_Riaz_Ahmed_Gohar_Shahi,_Published_2012

The Religion of God (Divine Love) is the ultimate textbook on spirituality. This book was published by the Balboa Press in the United States of America. On the title page of the book is a piece of advice that reads, ‘This book requires unruffled concentration, attention, pondering and research from all religions, sects and every man. It poses a challenge to those who deny the existence of spirituality.’

This book not only talks about spirituality in unprecedented details, at the same time,it tells us the future.

It is so concise yet covers everything about God, prophets, saints, religions, you and me. There is nothing that exists that doesn’t exist in this book. It contains the untold mysteries and secrets of God.

Some books are just pastime; you read it, enjoy it and forget it. Some books guide you on how to live. But The Religion of God covers the past of God, the past of humanity, the present of humanity, the present of God, the future of humanity, and the future of God. It covers every single topic that can’t even be imagined; this is a super textbook on spirituality.

There may have been questions in your mind for many years for which you searched for answers, but realised that finding an answer is not possible. When you read this book, you will come to know that those questions which were stored in your mind are answered in The Religion of God.

The most important aspect of this book – which, of course, is the case of a divine book – is that when you read it, you feel as if you are connected with the author. You feel as if questions are popping up in your mind, but at the same time, answers are also popping up. The taste of the pudding is in eating it.

This book is the most valuable asset in the field of theology, spirituality and mysticism. No mystical truth is complete without it.

The universality of this book is such that a Jew and a Hindu will read this book and feel like [they are personally] being addressed. A Muslim will read this book and he should feel, although he hides it, that he is being addressed. An atheist will read this book and he will feel comfortable reading it; he will feel as if somebody is trying to sell him the idea of believing in God again.

An atheist will develop an attitude within himself that he is giving in to the truth that God exists; not because somebody is going to put forward a very solid argument, but because there are answers in this book which no religious scholar can come up with regarding the reasons why atheism came into existence. These people must have gone through an enormous amount of pain and turmoil; at the time of need, they called upon God and he didn’t reply to them or help them. So, as a result of this disappointment and feeling of being let down, they became rebellious and they completely denied the existence of God.

HDE Gohar Shahi has discussed sensitive issues and points in this book which may appear to be taboo subjects to a religious scholar.

HDE Gohar Shahi has been pretty much fair. When religious scholars write about God, it is like the have been bribed by God. They will keep praising God; they are biased. Being a human being, you will definitely be biased to God and prejudiced to a sinner. The Religion of God tell you about the existence and nature of God; it also tells you where God was not himself and people who were looking up to God were let down or disappointed.

So, when an atheist reads this book he will think, ‘Whoever this person is, he is not an advocate of God; he is a fair mediator, trying to make a bridge between man and God and in trying to do so, he is impartial.’ HDE Gohar Shahi is such a unique mediator between man and God that he pinpoints God when he is wrong and pinpoints man when he is wrong. The reader, if he is an atheist, will feel, ‘I am in a court which is unbiased, where the judge is impartial and this judge is not just impartial he is a universal mediator.’ 

If HDE Gohar Shahi convinces you to believe in God, you can simply call him the advocate of God.

In this day and age, a person alleged of a crime will need a lawyer, advocate or barrister to convince the judiciary system. Similarly, God needs a barrister today. Religious scholars who were meant to be advocates turned out to be pimps. HDE Gohar Shahi sees both parties, man and God with an equal eye.

This is such a wonderful book. It is available on Amazon. Those who live in Canada can get it at Chapters and in the USA, it is available at Barnes & Nobles. In the United Kingdom, you can order it from Waterstone’s or WH Smith.  

The Reason Man Becomes a Terrorist

Oftentimes, we hear in the newspapers, on TV, or on the radio that some people are being radicalised with some kind of hateful doctrine.

It is really interesting to know that in order for a person to become radicalised, they do not need a special hateful knowledge or doctrine.

According to God, God created everything in pairs: men and women, day and night, truth and falsehood, light and darkness, inner and outer, etc.

In a similar way God created knowledge and paired it up: the outer knowledge and the inner knowledge. It is the knowledge of the exterior and the knowledge of your interior, the inner dimension and the outer dimension.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi says, ‘The outer knowledge is incomplete without inner knowledge.’

A man is incomplete without a woman and a woman is incomplete without a man. The case is the same for outer knowledge without the inner.

HDE Gohar Shahi explains, ‘The outer knowledge hardens the heart. The inner knowledge softens the heart.’

When you are in pursuit of knowledge, you must obtain both types of knowledge. If you obtain outer knowledge and ignore inner knowledge, you will become [another] Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, you will become Wahhabi, Shiite or Sunni.

Words are very dangerous because when you speak words, your intention are not included in those words. Your words come out and the intention of using those words remains in your heart.

For example, someone is a prophet, the door is open and it is cold outside – so they say to their companion, ‘Shut the door.’ At the same time, another person is coming and wants to come in the house, but he thinks, ‘When they saw me, they shut the door.’ Nobody knows why the door was shut. The prophet asked his companion to shut the door because it was cold, not because he did not want anybody to come in. But people will just repeat the words said.

This is how the Quran is without Mohammad. You only have the words of God, not the intentions of God; this is outer knowledge. You have the spoken word of God but you do not know the reason and intention of God.

If you had the interior knowledge as well, that knowledge would have connected your heart with God; whenever you would read God’s words, God intention would fall upon our heart and you would know the real interpretation of God’s words.

You do not need a special doctrine of hatred to become hateful like ISIS. 

If you have outer knowledge of any religion but lack the spiritual knowledge which connects the heart with God, one day, you will become Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. You are on the way to becoming [part of] ISIS.

Without Sufism and spirituality, you are on the autopilot. The inner knowledge is very important. If you do not have inner knowledge, no matter who you are, whether you are Shiite, Sunni or Wahhabi, one day, you will become a terrorist. There are Shiite organisations involved in terrorism, but Wahhabis have gone one step ahead of everybody else; they are professional killers. Iran is a terrorist country as well.

Terrorism is not just about killing people. The fundamental definition of terrorism is to keep people under terror and badly affect and disturb their quality of life.

There was a time when you could travel in a car with your wife and children and the police wouldn’t bother you. At the airports, if you are with your children and wife they wouldn’t bother you too much. They thoughts, ‘If he is travelling with his wife and with small children, he can’t be a terrorist.’ But then, even women became terrorists and they used even children. So now, whether you’re travelling with your family, there’s no exemption. Times have changed.

If a woman was wrapped up in veiling, you would be scared that she can explode anytime. If a girl or woman would pass by you wearing jeans, you were relaxed, and did not think she was radicalised. But now, it is different. Terrorists are now giving new recruits a new manual in which they say, ‘Don’t change your name. Wear outfits like westerners. Don’t grow beards. Drink alcohol, sleep around.’ There’s no mark of distinction between the two. You’ll never know [who has been radicalised].

What happened in Paris on two occasions was death. But terrorism is that people are afraid of visiting Paris. They are under terror.

When you want to go somewhere and you sense a threat, you postpone it.. After the events in Paris and San Bernardino, there were so many hoaxes on airplanes; it was terror.

You don’t need a bomb or gun to terrorise people. It’s a psychological battle and it is very easy. 

So terrorists have been successful. We say, ‘We are not afraid, we stand united,’ but these are just words. Human beings have a psychological weakness in them: when they spot a danger, the first thing that comes to them is fear or attack.

To spread terror is in your nature. On a local level or larger level, you are a terrorist. The only way you can overcome your ugly nature is to adopt spirituality which will soften your heart and transform you into a good human being.

Utterances of HDE Gohar Shahi:

In the End Times, God will send forth one of the above mentioned souls. He will find  and  unite  them  together.  And  He  will  remind  them  that  they  also once loved God. All such souls whether or not they are religious will attend to his call, and flock around Him. He will grant them a unique name of God, which will pass through their hearts and settle in their souls. The souls will constantly engage with the repetition of that name (the soul will become  a  permanent  Dhakir).  The  unique  name  of  God  will  confer  on them a brand new enthusiasm, a new power and a new definition of love. The Noor (Divine Energy) of the unique name of God will reconnect the soul with God.

Dhikr Qalb serves like an intermediary ladder to obtaining Dhikr Rouh  (invocation of the soul), just as the rituals of Salat (a form of worship) and fasting are means of obtaining the invocation of the heart. If the soul of an individual has learnt to invoke God, he is among those who shall have no fear of accountability and the Divine Scale on the Day of Judgement. The advanced stages of invocation and worship of soul confirm his elevated 

rank. Individuals that are progressing in spirituality from the heart towards the  soul  are  among  those  who  have  entered  the  Religion  of  God or are about to enter it. Their means of guidance is God’s Light, not the books. God’s  Light,  itself,  keeps  them  away  from  committing  sins.  And  those who, even by striving or by learning about it, are deprived of this spiritual status, are not included in this Spiritual League. Heretics are those that, without invocation of the heart and the soul, consider themselves among those  in  this  Spiritual  League  or  imitate  them.  The  means  of  salvation for common folks is worship and religion. The means of guidance are the celestial books. The means of intercession are through the Prophets and the Saints. Many Muslims do not accept the fact that the Saints can provide people with intercession to God. However, Prophet Mohammad advised his companions to request Owais Qarni to provide his Ummah (following) with intercession to God.

If the body of a car is beautiful but the engine is useless, the entire thing is useless. There used to be a British car known as a Rover. It was not a reliable car, but they replaced the engine in that car with a Honda engine. After this, sales soared. Basically, it’s about the engine, not the body. One who fixes the body of the car is like a person who has the outer knowledge; one who fixes the engine is like somebody who has the inner knowledge.

Similarly, outer knowledge tells you how to keep your body clean, behave yourself and perform rituals of the religion.

But the inner knowledge will awaken the human instinct in you. The inner knowledge will bring out to the surface all the humanly attributes which have been granted to your soul by God. 

From childhood, we heard that being a man is greater than being an angel. But all our lives, in all our societies, we have regarded angels as greater than us. In books we are greater, but in practical life they are greater. When we came to see HDE Gohar Shahi and HDE told us about this, we realised that there is a special knowledge which will make man greater than an angel.

If you do not have that knowledge, you are not even great – forget about being greater than an angel. This is the knowledge of the heart, the knowledge of the soul and this knowledge connects you to God. 

Utterances of His Divine Eminence Ra Gohar Shahi

There  are  three  parts  of  exoteric  knowledge  and  one  part  of  esoteric knowledge (inner knowledge).

One  has  to  find  a  Moses  to  obtain  exoteric  knowledge  and  a  Khidr  to obtain esoteric knowledge from.

The  inspirational  voice  that  one  hears  without  the  presence  of  Gabriel is  known  as  Ilhaam.  The  knowledge  that  one  obtains  without  Gabriel accompanying it, is known as Sahifa (Divine Scroll) and Hadith Qudsee (conversation  with  God  without  a  medium).  The  knowledge  conveyed through the Gabriel is known as the Koran, whether it contains exoteric knowledge or esoteric knowledge, whether you call it the Torah, the Psalms of David or the Bible.

The religious scholars get away with their faults and errors by labelling it as politics. Faults and errors by the Saints are regarded and ignored as acts of  wisdom.  Faults  and  errors  by  the  Prophets  are  not  regarded  as  faults and errors.

The concerned souls inside the human body gain strength with whatever type  of  spiritual  practice  they  are  engaged  in.  And  those  that  are not engaged in any spiritual practice are dormant and senseless. And those that, through any means, have absorbed God’s name in their souls, their hobby is then constant remembrance of God (Dhikr-e-Sultani) and Rapturous Love of God (Ishq-e-Allah).

No wonder Iqbal said, ‘If you possess Rapturous Love of God, your kufr (ingratitude) is Islam (submission to God).’

Imam Mehdi will rejuvenate all the religions!

Mujaddid  (the  revivers)  emerged  within  Muslim  Ummah  in  the  post-Mohammadan  era,  and  they  revived  the  religion.  The  amendment  of these Mujaddid will become ineffective after the advent of Imam Mehdi. And Imam Mehdi will rejuvenate all religions in his very own way. It is mentioned in several books that Imam Mehdi shall found a brand new religion.

If an individual worships all his life, but in the end, he happens to oppose Imam  Mehdi  and  Jesus  Christ  (return  of  both  the  Personalities  to  this world  is  imminent;  Jesus  Christ  appears  with  the  same  body  as  he  was raised up with, and Imam Mehdi in the body with the terrestrial spirits of Prophet Mohammad), such an individual is hell-bound in the similitude of Balyim Ba’our, and he is as rejected by God as Iblis (the Devil) was.

On the contrary, if an individual lives all his life like a dog, but in the end, he happens to support and love Imam Mehdi and Jesus Christ, such an individual shall enter paradise in the similitude of Qatmir.

Some  of  the  religions  and  sects  say,  ‘Jesus  had  died,  and  his  tomb is situated in Afghanistan.’ This is a misleading propaganda. The tomb in Afghanistan is not that of Jesus Christ, but of a Saint whose name also is Isa. In that primitive age, what could have been the purpose of burial at such a far off place? They argue, ‘How was Jesus raised to the skies?’ We say, ‘How was Adam descended on Earth?’ Remember: Idrees (Enoch) still lives physically in paradise. Khidr (A mystical figure) and Ilyas (Elias) are present on Earth, and they haven’t tasted death yet.
