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.

Masajid Mein Tankhwa Lena Haram!
14th February 2017|LecturesVideos

Masajid Mein Tankhwa Lena Haram!

In this video, Younus AlGohar explains why it is prohibited (haram) for one to take money for services to the religion.

Main points:
– People think to have unshakeable trust in God means to believe that he will take care of everyone’s needs without them needing to do anything, but this is wrong. Unshakeable trust in God is for those who have become connected to God.

– When God appoints someone on duty to take care of his creation, they don’t make money. So God takes responsibility of them and their needs. When God tells them that he is responsible for them, and they wait for him to fulfil their needs, this is unshakeable trust in God.

– It wasn’t just the saints God took responsibility of; it was also the clerics in the mosque. In the past, people would donate food and clothes to these clerics and they would respect them. Now, the clerics take money for their work so they are not actually serving the religion; rather they are just doing another job. God does not like this. To take money in exchange for services to the religion is prohibited in Islam.

Martaba-e-Aloohiyat Ki Burhan GOHAR SHAHI Ke Qadmon Mein
26th January 2017|ArticlesLectures

Martaba-e-Aloohiyat Ki Burhan GOHAR SHAHI Ke Qadmon Mein

Younus AlGohar unveils secrets of creatorhood in this eye-opening lecture. Read the full transcript of this video in Urdu here.
Main points:
– To be considered a creator, you have to have a special type of evidence (Burhan). In the Quran, God denied that he ever had a partner in creating creation. He further said that those who claim to be a creator do not have the required evidence. He didnt explain what that proof is.
– To prove oneself as a creator, one must have created both Zaati creation (related to God’s personal being) and Sifati creation (related to God’s attributes). God’s Zaati creation are the divine sub-spirits: Jussa Taufiq-e-Ilahi and Tifl-e-Noori. God’s Sifati creation includes human beings and angels. The greatest evidence of God’s creatorhood lies in the Jussa Taufiq-e-Ilahi that have the ability to fly – there were only ever two; they were given to Lal Shahbaz Qalandar and Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi.
– Evidence of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s creatorhood can be seen in the 11-12 special souls that have a direct connection to Him. He sent those special souls in this world as proof. Only those souls have rapturous love for His Divine Eminence. People who are loyal to His Divine Eminence will go through the process of Spiritual infusion and be transported to the Unseen World where the Community of God resides.
– There is a difference between Illah (the Creator) and Allah (God). When God created creation, that is when his attribute of Illah manifested into a being. So actually his rank of being an Illah is only as ancient as creation itself. When human beings reach the Station of God-Seeing, they actually manifest the splendour of the Illah rather than the being of God.

How to Identify a Terrorist

How to Identify a Terrorist

How to Identify a Terrorist

A member of Messiah Foundation International was speaking to Darren Adams on LBC earlier today after the horrifying killing of innocent people in Germany. Darren Adams is a secularist and his point of view is plain about terrorist activities. He regards the terrorists as murderers.

Fair enough, you may see them as murderers; however is it not in the vast interest of our nation and innocent people around the world to be able to identify the terrorists with the brand of extremist ideology and religious creed they follow?

The Wahhabi/Salafi ideology is the most intolerant within Islam. Their way of life is peculiar and the way see the world is weird.

ISIS and Saudi Arabia practise the same ideology! The Saudi clerics and their affiliates all over the world support and praise terrorist atrocities.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Humari Duaen Allah Tak Kiyon Nahen Pohanchti?
15th November 2016|LecturesVideos

#AskYounusAlGohar | Humari Duaen Allah Tak Kiyon Nahen Pohanchti?

Younus AlGohar answers a question from a Muslim viewer, who wanted to know in light of the Quran and Prophetic Traditions whether God is accepting people’s prayers.

Main points:

– Before delving into whether or not God is accepting your prayers, you should first find out: are your prayers even reaching God? Muslims think that it doesn’t matter if they say the prayers out loud or not, God hears them because God knows what is in the hearts. On the other hand, Quran 3:38 says that God hears the prayers. If God knows what is inside the hearts, why does the Quran say that he listens to prayers and why did he appoint two angels to track a person’s good and bad deeds?

– If we say that someone whose eyes are sound can see, and whose ears are working can hear, then this is true. But to say that someone living the United Kingdom can hear and see whatever is going on everywhere in Canada, USA, Australia, etc without any technological aid, then it is a ridiculous claim. Someone living in the UK may be able to see what is happening in Canada by watching what is broadcasted to them by a camera – but they will only see whatever is shown in front of the lens.

– In a similar way, God will hear the prayers when they reach him. God has a different nature from us. His being is different – our bodies are made of clay whilst he is Noor (divine light). These earthly bodies we have do not have the ability to see ethereal beings. The voices do not reach the ethereal beings. For God to hear you, there is a system. God gave you the Latifa-e-Qalb (The Spiritual Heart). When it is awakened it’ll take your voice, make it ethereal and take it to the higher realms.

– When people’s prayers didn’t reach God in the past, they would visit Sufis and shrines of saints. They didn’t go because they thought these saints are God. The saints had reached God’s nearness and become ethereal. So people would take their prayers to these saints, who would take the prayers to God; and then God would listen and accept the prayers. However, Wahhabis propagated that people going to Sufis for this purpose actually considered them to be God; the Wahhabis claims that people worshipped the shrines. This is untrue. However as a result of these lies, people stopped going to shrines for help; therefore their prayers stopped reaching God.

– Fortunately, when Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi came, He offered to give common people the secretive knowledge through which they could reach God directly using His spiritual sciences. He taught people the knowledge which allowed them to bypasses the saints and fakirs. Once your voice reaches God, by law, he will have to say that he either accepts your prayers or he doesn’t.

Islamic Judiciary & ISIS

Islamic Judiciary & ISIS

Islamic Judiciary & ISIS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#AskYounusAlGohar | Kiya Hazoor Pak ﷺ‎ Qasim Aur Waris Hain?

Younus AlGohar responds to a viewer who objected to his statement about Prophet Mohammad being appointed to distribute what God grants.

Main points:

– The full Prophetic Tradition referred to mentions that God grants people understanding of the religion. The other part is that God is the one who grants things and Prophet Mohammad is the one who distributes God’s bounty.

– The viewer tried to insinuate that understanding of the religion is given by God directly. However, God is giving understanding of the religion through Prophet Mohammad. If you can prove that God directly gives someone understanding of the religion, then we will say that we are wrong.

– In the Quran it is said that God grants understanding of the religion to the Qalb (heart). Without Shahr-e-Sadr, without awakening and enlightening your Qalb, how will you get understanding of the religion? For Shahr-e-Sadr you need to adopt Prophet Mohammad’s spirituality.

The Struggle for Self-Exploration
28th September 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

The Struggle for Self-Exploration

Extremism and fanaticism are products of ignorance, intolerance and inferiority complexes. People tend to recognise extremism and fanaticism only on a higher level, with the affiliation of religion. However, we need to find the roots of extremism and fanaticism.

It is more of a behavioural issue than a religious issue.

If someone is an extremist, it is not just about religion. There are extremists in different fields. For example, some people are even extremists about themselves: they think they are the best and they cannot give in to their own self.

Fanaticism is not a theory or a religion. Fanaticism is an ugly behaviour. One’s behaviour changes when they don’t respect others, give them space or consider their rights. It changes when they are only concerned about their rights and themselves; when they become self-centred and impatient, and they cannot take a little pain for others at the time of adversity.

When there are good people in any religion, the religion is operated well by them.

Religion itself does not have legs. It cannot do anything; it is just a set of beliefs. The followers of that religion are the operators of it. When the religions are operated by bad people, they start malfunctioning.

Let’s talk about a household. The entire household is managed by the guardian of the house. The way it is managed depends on how bad or good that person is. The problem is not with any religion; whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Islam or Hinduism, all of them are good — but the people who operate these religions are bad.

This is because there is a prerequisite that one must do before they practise a religion: purification of the inner devil.

Without first attaining inner purification, if one follows any religion, they will [misinterpret it]. They will become intolerant.

When we say intolerance is prevailing the society, this is not due to any religion. This is an issue with the behaviour of human beings. No religion is intolerant; it is the people who are either tolerant or intolerant. It is the people who are either rational and full of sanity, or so irrational that they are almost insane.

For example, if a mad person drives a BMW and runs over a couple of men, we won’t blame BMW. It is not the car [at fault], it is the driver.

Fanaticism and extremism are not products of any religion. Extremism and fanaticism have to do with people. Some people are more patient, tolerant and forgiving than others. Some people are short-sighted and impatient. It is not about the religion that one follows. It is about their own being: how composed or disturbed they are.

If your mind is disturbed, you are disturbed everywhere.

That happens when there are some decisions in life which are difficult for you to make. Due to this indecisive nature, you don’t settle things; so there remains a kind of pressure and stress on you mind, keeping it preoccupied. It kills your sanity. Mental disturbance is something one cannot afford.

In order to please others, it is important that you should be happy. If you are unhappy, you cannot make anybody happy. If you yourself are crying and suffering, how can you please others?

In order to be able to make others happy, constitutionally you should be happy in the first place.

We need to educate people on ethical values to build their character. We need to discuss the psychological aspect of everybody’s lives and how our lives can be improved. When our lives are hell, then everything falls apart. Then, we don’t care about our bad behaviour, ethics or anything else because we are disturbed.

When you want to do weight lifting at the gym, if you cannot even move 50 KG, you won’t try to lift it; you know that you cannot put extra weight on your body. If you do, you’ll hurt yourself.

Similarly, in life, you are carrying a lot of extra luggage that you will not need while you are travelling. Life is nothing but a journey and you must travel light.

Make life easy, my friend. After all, this is only one life that you have.

I do not think fanaticism and extremism are about any religion. You don’t have to follow a religion to be a fanatic or extremist. These days, jihadists and terrorists are not devout Muslims; they don’t even know anything about Islam. They’re drinkers and party animals. More and more people, especially in the Western sphere of the world, are prone to becoming jihadists not because they are inspired by Islamic text or they find the Quran fascinating. Rather, some of these people suffer from narcissistic personality disorder.

I used to live in Manchester some 20 years ago. My neighbour was a strange person; for some reason, he didn’t like my face. There was a blind alley between the two houses; he lived on the left side of and I lived on the right. If I walked on the pavement, he would come out and say, ‘You are trespassing on my property.’ I would say, ‘What? I am walking on the pavement.’ He would reply, ‘Yeah but this pavement is in front of my house so you are trespassing. I am going to call the police.’

This is not about their religion. This is about them. They are crazy, impatient, intolerant and ignorant.

What I have just said is not a wandering thought that has crossed my mind. I am a very keen observer. I read men and their behaviour. I have read many people.

To a degree, every single human being becomes an extremist in certain situations and conditions.

The root cause of extremism is to do with behaviour.

Your behaviour is not your fault; it is carved, nurtured and shaped by good or bad experiences in your life.

When you go through denial, rejection and deprivation; when you are scolded by people for no apparent reason, that is when your behaviour [deteriorates]. Behaviour is all about our reaction to certain things.

For example, someone tried all their life to buy a car but they couldn’t. Then they came to England, struggled for a year or two and then finally bought a car. Now you have to be careful; if you damage the car, no matter how close of a friend you are to them, you will be in trouble. They value the car more than they should because of their struggle.

Suppose you did not eat food for 48 hours. Finally, you are a holding a Big Mac in your hand. Just as you are about to take a bite, someone laughingly takes it away and says, ‘I’ll eat it instead.’ You will behave differently [than you would normally].

Our behaviour is not about how bad or good we are. It is shaped and developed through good and bad experiences in life, and of course the way people behave with us.

We need to look into our lives. We need to see what is wrong and right in our life. What is causing us problems? What is the source of disturbance in our life? What is it that is distracting us from our spiritual journey?

Self-Realisation is God-Realisation

In spirituality, you struggle to become good in this lifetime.You become good not just for yourself, but as an embodiment of God on Earth.

When people come and sit in your company, they feel relaxed without establishing any meditation. They’ll just sit with you and feel peace because you have gotten rid of all your evil traits, all the negativity.

We should sort out our problems in life. If something is causing problems, we should see if we can fix that problem. If you can’t fix it, replace it.

Spirituality is something that alone can make a human out of you.

A religion is like a film in which you are a billionaire and you have a lot of money, big houses, cars and everything. When the movie is shot, you come back to reality.

In religion, you imitate being good. Spirituality will make you good.

When you go to a shopping mall in the United States of America, the salesperson will greet you with a business smile. They know it is a fake smile, but it is part of their business strategy. Similarly, a religion will tell you what you can and cannot do, whether you like it or not. A religion wants performance, like a coach of a team.

In spirituality, it is not about performance. It is about transformation.

If you want to see whether a person has made any progression in spirituality, you need to see if he is a better human being today than he was yesterday.

The first step in spirituality is to know yourself.

Self-realisation is an art that comes from spiritual practice and discipline. It is about coming to know of all your physical, spiritual and carnal aspects. A mentor who has culminated his quest in the said field can guide one towards self-exploration on a spiritual journey.

Too many people don’t know who or what they are. When they do good, they want to publicise it. When they do bad, they don’t want [others] to see it. This attitude has led them to a point where they have lost their identity. They do not know themselves.

It isn’t about your parenthood or sisters and brothers. It is about you. It is about how beneficial or harmful you are to your fellowmen.

This is why the first step towards God-realisation is self-realisation.

If you truly know yourself, don’t seek God. God said in the Koran, ‘I am in you. Why don’t you peep into yourself to know me?’

A religion is aiming at you to please God. In spirituality, you find and explore for your personal, original identity.

So spirituality is self-exploration.

Knowing yourself is not an easy job, otherwise God would not have labelled knowing yourself as knowing God.

In spirituality, you go through self-denial and this is the hardest job. You deny and negate yourself.

If negativity in you is stronger than positivity, the negativity compels you to do bad things. You have to make positivity even more powerful with the help of spirituality. Once the source of evil and negativity, the Carnal Self, gets weaker, then the compelling of Carnal Self will lessen. A time will come when you will realise that nobody is pushing you to do anything wrong.

Ego is such a problem. You’ll be defending the ego, the inner devil, but you’ll think you are defending yourself. This is why it is not easy to know yourself.

NewsRescue.com’s Article on Wahhabism

For many years, Younus AlGohar, along with Messiah Foundation International, has been working tirelessly to raise awareness about the true culprit of Islamist terrorism: Wahhabism. We have proved how Saudi Arabia is the principal financier and supporter of Wahhabism. Major media outlets are now investigating the matter and drawing the same conclusion. As a result, Saudi Arabia’s officials have adopted a hypocritical policy, denying all links to Islamist terrorism and purporting to be peace-loving Muslims.

 In an article published on its website, News Rescue covered one of Saudi Arabia’s questionable denials of links to terrorism. In it, the author mentioned the facts against Saudi Arabia and cited an infographic by Younus AlGohar, pictured above.
