Spirituality isn’t in any way like a part time job. It’s not a type of worship or ritual. It is a way of life. To live like God is to be a Sufi.

Important Notice for All MFI Members

Important Notice for All MFI Members

Dear MFI members,

We promote Spirituality, theology, unification, love and peace. Our message is broad and inclusive and it encompasses all humanity without any reservation and prejudice. It is important that we respect all religions. Our path is the path of love. Respecting one’s own religion and rejecting others religion breeds extremism and hatred. All religions teach divine virtues and in nature all religions are sublime.

Do not degrade, disrespect and defame any human being for whatsoever reason. Do not consider anyone lower than yourself.

Crushing the ego, negating the carnal Self, subsequently embarking upon the path of purification is your lifetime struggle, this must go on for as long as you live. All vices generate by the lower self (لطیفہ نفس). Once the lower self is cleansed to perfection you will earn God’s trust.

Do not hate anyone. And do not keep the company of those who generate hatred and pollute hearts.

Beware of the imposters who impersonate a Sufi. They are those who never go through the vigorous regime of spiritual discipline and purification of the heart and lower self.

Beware of those that publicise themselves to be descendants of Imam Mehdi GoharShahi. Remember well, Imam Mehdi GoharShahi did not appoint anyone from among His household members to represent the Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love and Peace.

A proper and divinely appointed deputy only can guide people and connect them with God. The divine delegation is a precondition for a genuine deputy.

There are, unfortunately, many who come from the household of His Holiness GoharShahi and they are actively deceiving people under the label of Holy Blood Line (آل).

Dear friends, there are no noble births. Nobody is born holy. You strive and struggle in the way of purification and only then you become holy, whether you come from a holy bloodline or you are a commoner.

Remember well, the Beloved Prophet Mohammad صلی اللہ علیہ و آلہ وسلم said: an evil spirit is born with every human being. The companions asked if an evil spirit was born with the Beloved Prophet also. The Prophet replied that an evil spirit was born with Him too, however, it became purified by the divine light within the Prophet.

The sons of His Holiness GoharShahi have nothing to do with spirituality and the teachings of His Holiness. In addition to the sons, there are many others who are either remote relatives of His Holiness GoharShahi or the imperfect followers who are currently impersonating as holy ones. Do not fall prey to these imposters.

It is very upsetting and sad that the very sons of His Holiness reject His Divine Eminence to be the Awaited Imam Mehdi despite the fact that there are numerous divine signs that God has manifested in the horizons and within human beings as a token of affirmation to Sarkar GoharShahi’s Mehdi-hood. His Holiness GoharShahi himself has given clear hints which confirm the fact that His Holiness GoharShahi is the Awaited Imam Mehdi.

And there are those who pose to be my followers and spread unverified knowledge. Do not take anything from anybody if it doesn’t come from me. And what comes from me is either on ALRA TV channel or on our verified websites and Facebook pages. My page is available on the Facebook and it is a verified account. Anything genuine and authentic has to come from my own verified account. Do not consider anything to be verified if it is not coming from my verified Facebook page or MFI websites.

Thanks very much for your time.

Yours in Gohar,

Younus AlGohar

Statement: Farah Naz Takes Charge of MFI
7th June 2018|NewsStatement

Statement: Farah Naz Takes Charge of MFI

Statement: Farah Naz Takes Charge of MFI

CEO of MFI, Younus AlGohar, issues his statement:

Dear members,

I am utterly delighted to inform you that the Beloved Daughter (Farah Naz a.k.a Nazo Baji) of His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has cordially accepted to guardian Mehdi Foundation International.

Please remember in what life-threatening circumstances Nazo Baji had to leave her house in Kotri, Pakistan. Nazo Baji was threatened to be killed along with her husband and her daughter. Hammad Riaz of Anjuman Sarfroshan Islam threatened Nazo Baji in Kotri. Luckily, Nazo Baji escaped. Nazo Baji has stood against the denial of His Divine Grace Gohar Shahi’s office of Mehdi-hood by Hammad and his followers of Anjuman Sarfroshan Islam recently.

Nazo Baji firmly believes in His Divine Grace Gohar Shahi to have come from the Unseen World. Nazo Baji believes that MFI is truly serving the teachings of His Divine Grace Gohar Shahi.

Nazo Baji truly believes that His Divine Grace Gohar Shahi is the awaited Imam Mehdi.

I would like to welcome Nazo Baji to MFI and thank Nazo Baji for accepting guardianship of Mehdi Foundation International. I would like to verify that with immediate effect Nazo Baji is now the guardian of Mehdi Foundation.

Farah Naz, the Beloved Daughter of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, issues her statement:

My name is Farah Naz. I am the daughter of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. What I have learnt in the company of my father, the spiritual truth that HDE has rendered in ‘Deen-e-Ilahi (The Religion of God)’ – I have seen the reflection of that knowledge in Mehdi Foundation International and I truly believe that MFI is following HDE Gohar Shahi’s teachings.

The teachings of my father, HDE Gohar Shahi are not for any particular religion. The message of God’s love is for all humanity. This is the very reason that my father was invited to speak in Hindu temples, Gurdwaras, Churches, Synagogues and Mosques all over the world.

The Hindus believe my father to be their Kalki Avatar, the Muslims believe him to be the Awaited Imam Mehdi and the Christians and Jews believe him to be their Awaited Messiah.

I saw this message to be the theme of MFI and as a result, I was oppressed by my brothers. I promoted this message undercover and kept my identity hidden.

The CEO of MFI, Younus AlGohar, on numerous occasions, requested that I take up the Guardianship of MFI; however, due to the fear of my brothers, I remained silent.

A few months ago, my brothers announced that they reject that my father is the Awaited Imam Mehdi.

I had to take a stand against this atrocity against the truth. Thus I announce that I cordially accept Younus AlGohar’s invitation to become Guardian of Mehdi Foundation International.

Jashan-e-Shahi 2018: 31st May
28th May 2018|News

Jashan-e-Shahi 2018: 31st May

Jashan-e-Shahi 2018: 31st May

Jashan-e-Shahi (Youm-e-Mehdi) is the day relating to His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s rank as the awaited Imam Mehdi (as). It falls on 15th Ramadan of every year and is celebrated with zeal and fervour by admirers of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi around the world! HDE Gohar Shahi is Younus AlGohar’s Spiritual Guide.

This year, Jashan-e-Shahi will be celebrated on 31st May 2018. Be sure to watch ALRA TV at 10:00 PM BST on 31st May 2018 for a special lecture by Younus AlGohar.

An excerpt from The Religion of God (Divine Love) about Jashan-e-Shahi and why it is celebrated:

On the 15th of Ramadan 1977, a series of unique secretive conversations (Ilhaamat or inspiration) with God also began. The promise of ‘Radhiya Mardhiya’ (‘Your will is my will, my will is your will’) took place and rank was also granted. Since every rank (martaba) and ascension (meraaj) is related to the 15th of Ramadan, this is why in order to express feelings of happiness and thanksgiving, Jashan-e-Shahi is celebrated every year.

In the year 1978, His Divine Eminence moved to Hyderabad, Sindh, and began to shower the grace of divine guidance on mankind, and in a short span of time, His spiritual grace spread throughout the world. The hearts of millions of people were revived with God’s remembrance. God’s name, ‘Allah’ was imprinted on the hearts of millions of people, and they witnessed it on their hearts. Hundreds of thousands of people acquired access to Kashf Al Qaboor (the ability to speak to the subtlety of Nafs of the departed Saints) and Kashf Al Hudhoor (access to the court of Mohammad). His Divine Eminence has cured millions of people with terminal diseases. After having received the teachings and guidance from His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, people from every religion, every nationality, and every race acquired the love of God, and began to reach the Essence of God.

In Loving Memory of Jawed Riaz
27th April 2018|ActivitiesNewsStatement

In Loving Memory of Jawed Riaz

In Loving Memory of Jawed Riaz

It is with both sorrow and hope that we pay our respects to Jawed Riaz on the day of his passing. Jawed was a longtime member of Mehdi Foundation International and a sincere admirer of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi who spent his final days spreading the message of love and spirituality in South Asia. Jawed was also a dear friend of Younus AlGohar. 

The following is Younus AlGohar’s statement on this day.

Dear Folks,

We all have come into this world for a short-lived stay. Nobody will live here forever. Blessed are those that have enlightened their heart and awakened their souls. What we do in this life will determine our future life. Most people spend their life in making money and they become wealthy.

Those that have a loving soul live their life like a mission and their foremost mission is to please the Lord. Association with HH GoharShahi makes a nobody a somebody.

Knowing and being attached with HH GoharShahi itself is an abundance of bounty and blessings however, there are some elite who steer a number of aspiring people to HH GoharShahi and serve the cause of love and enlightenment. Such a soul is Jawed Riaz who had been a great business man throughout his life-span. Towards the twilight of his life he devoted himself to serving the cause of Imam Mehdi RaRiaz Gohar Shahi. He worked day and night tirelessly to promote the mission of Love and peace. He loved HH Gohar Shahi and supported the cause.

Today as he departed from this phenomenal world, he is a successful candidate to availing eternal blessings and very close proximity of HH GoharShahi.

I sincerely believe the fact that Jawed Riaz is far from needing anybody pray for him, HH GoharShahi is enough for Him.

As a humble servant of HH GoharShahi I feel ecstatic to salute our soldier of Love “Jawed Riaz”.

What a man! And what a life he lived! Let’s pay tribute to his service of love and rejoice in the fact that he enjoys a never-ending bond of Love with HH GoharShahi!

Long live Jawed Riaz!

We love You (Jawed Riaz).

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi
23rd January 2018|Articles

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi

Do not ever believe in what you hear on the grapevine.

Disinformation spreads faster than information.

According to the Koran, the purpose of the human species is that they become God-conscious. Religions provide people with spiritual mediumship and pave the way for seekers to find a way to God. When religions were corrupted, the knowledge of spirituality — which was the backbone in every religion — became nullified. It vanished from the religions due to which people were left distant from God.

Today, we are in an era where nobody thinks of reaching God. In fact, nobody even thinks of God. They are lost somewhere in the ritualistic mirage of religions. It is a sad story.

His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has shown Himself to the world the most bountiful, merciful and ultra-beneficial to humankind. HDE Gohar Shahi has struggled enormously well to elevate intellectuality and spirituality among claimants of different religions. HDE Gohar Shahi provided food for thought to the people who seemingly struggle to find God.

Spirituality was once the backbone of every religion without a name. Today, HDE Gohar Shahi has signified the significance of spirituality in our lives.

Muslims have, somehow or other, developed their understanding to be more sceptical than those who appreciate the spiritual truth. The element of extremism has always existed in Islam since the very beginning. It is such a pity that the early caliphs of Islam became victims of Islamist extremism. Ali, the cousin of Prophet Mohammad, was murdered by an Islamist extremist. Umar bin Khattab was murdered by Islamist militants. Usman bin Afaan was also killed by Partisans of Ali (Shiite).

People who believe in the same religion — whether they believed in that religion 1400 years ago or today — their level of intellectuality has decreased rather than increasing. They’re quite sentimental. People do not like to be guided correctly. They have this tendency of going with the flow. If you are a sheep in the herd and you see that all the sheep are going in one direction, you do the same.

HDE Gohar Shahi is the only universal spiritual teacher who has shown to the world more courage, gallantry and bravery than it was required of His Divine Eminence.

HDE Gohar Shahi went to every single faction among the sectarian elements in Pakistan, and — right in their faces — he told them, ‘What you practise is not Islam.’

He further said, ‘This is Islam. When you practise this, you will not like to call yourself a Sunni, Shiite or Wahhabi. The true Islam will connect you with God and his messenger. You will take pride in being a true disciple of Prophet Mohammad.’

People who never wanted to know Islam and who wanted to use Islam as a fake guard on their bodies at the same time — vehemently, they disapproved of this realistic version of Islam which consists of spirituality.

You cannot reach your reality without spirituality because your reality is your spirit. The first thing that you need to do is become self-conscious. You need to know who you are. If you say that you are a Wahhabi, Sunni or a Shiite, this is not you. Your reality lies in the awakening of your soul.

People with low cognitive calibre were unable to understand and comprehend the ultramodern spiritual sciences presented by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. HDE Gohar Shahi did not present any spiritual channelling because He Himself is the ultimate spiritual channel.

A spiritual guide is a spiritual conductor. Conduction of divine light is the principal cause of him being a spiritual conductor.

This is a strange phenomenon by which His Divine Eminence conducts spirituality and divine light — and HDE Gohar Shahi Himself is the destiny of all souls and spirits.

It will take one to know God before he is able to know His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. Those who do not understand God should not attempt to know who HDE Gohar Shahi is.

Sectarian elements in Pakistan for the last 35–40 years have been trying their best to suppress HDE Gohar Shahi’s teachings, to halt HDE Gohar Shahi and hinder in His mission. They have done their best on an individual level on a governmental level. However:

The truth of HDE Gohar Shahi is like a spring. The more you suppress it, the more it goes up.

This alone is one of the greatest miracles. You cannot quieten the voice of the truth. You cannot quieten the sound of Ya Gohar.

This is especially true when people have experiences in which their religiosity and spirituality were restored in the fuller meaning of the phrase. They found their ultimate goal in form of HDE Gohar Shahi’s blessings.

So on the one hand, people have experiences whereby they will return to eternal life, their hearts were enlightened and they were free from different physical and spiritual ailments.

On the other hand, there is speculation all over the world among Muslims that HDE Gohar Shahi and His teachings are not in accordance with the Koran.

Well, so what? The teachings of Jesus Christ are not in accordance with Koran. Do such people dare call him a cheat? The teachings of Moses are not in accordance with the Koran either. The Koran is not the ultimate source. The Bible, Koran and Torah all came from the Guarded Tablet.

The creator of this universe, God, is the ultimate source of knowledge. Even after the revelation of the Koran, he can bless anybody with more knowledge than in the Koran — this is called Ilm-e-Ladunni.

This is the type of knowledge which is neither part of the Koran, Bible, Torah, Talmud or Psalms of David; yet it is as truthful as all these celestial books because it comes from God.

Ilm-e-Ladunni is the knowledge that comes directly from God.

It is more powerful than the revelations [in the celestial books] since they come from the Guarded Table and Ilm-e-Ladunni comes directly from God.

The book penned by HDE Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love), as it has been declared by HDE Gohar Shahi Himself, is the masterpiece of Ilm-e-Ladunni.

How to Bring Out the Best in People

How to Bring Out the Best in People

How to Bring Out the Best in People

Try to be always kind, do not try to be always right. Sometimes you have to be kind even if people are wrong, so do not go after righteousness.

Sometimes, a man is not what his character is. Sometimes, a man is not what his sins tell you. Sometimes, a man is buried deep under the burden of his sins and habits that he cannot get rid of. However, inside his heart, he is very kind — a gentleman.

So do not always try to judge; sometimes, you have to forgive. You must do this in order to bring the best out of people.

When some people sit with you, they bring the worst out of you. However, a spiritual man is one who will bring the best out of you. He will bring the best out of you because you yourself cannot bring the best out of you [on your own].

Younus AlGohar and Steve Bell discuss Unitarian Spirituality on ThatChannel.com
9th December 2017|InterviewsVideos

Younus AlGohar and Steve Bell discuss Unitarian Spirituality on ThatChannel.com

The following is a transcript of the discussion between Younus AlGohar, Steve Bell and Hugh Reilly at the ThatChannel.com HQ.

Hugh Reilly (H): Hey everybody, it is me, Hugh, with Liquid Lunch. This is actually a surprise get-together today. We have HH Younus AlGohar and Steve Bell from the Messiah Foundation UK. You guys were going to go to Edmonton – which is a real journey from Toronto, since you were going to drive there – but I heard the weather was bad and it is really no fun driving the snow.

It is great to have you here. We had the [Unitarian Spiritualism] event on October 29th at the Steelworkers Hall. Really, I guess the message that you are bringing is unitarian spirituality: we’re all human beings and we have to learn to get along with one another and that’s what we are trying to do.

Let’s talk about what true spirituality is.

Who makes a good spiritual leader?

Steve Bell (S): True spirituality is regarding the spirits. It is to do with the spirits. His Holiness Younus AlGohar quite clearly says that we have seven souls in our body. And spirituality is all about reawakening those souls. For those souls, they can visit their respective realms once they have been regenerated with divine energy.

Not all the souls are positive; they all have different functions. We very clearly have a negative soul in us; when we are born, this negative soul is active which is why we find it so easy to hate; negatively comes very easily to human beings. The positive, loving side, takes a bit of work.

His Holiness often says, ‘It is very easy to hate and you don’t need to learn how to hate. But to learn to love, you have to make a bit of effort.’

You always have to tell a child to share a toy. It is quite in the nature to be negative.

True spirituality is reawakening those spirits and souls. [The way] is not by reading books or going to worship places. The only way you can reawaken those souls is through a true spiritual master. A true spiritual master will reawaken your souls for you. It is not just a pipe dream; you can feel the presence in your heart. After some time, you can feel yourself becoming a better, more loving, human being.

A true Spiritual Master is somebody that can unlock that door and open your heart and souls.

H: You got me curious: what are the seven souls? You mentioned they’re not all positive and there are some negative ones in there.

S: The [Spiritual Heart] is the key to connect with God. Once the heart reawakens, that is how you can communicate with God.

We’re not against any religion, as we have said many times before. But we are not in the business of worshipping God; our business is loving God.

We teach people how they can love God through the connection of their heart. So that’s the main soul [that we focus on]. The other souls have different functions in the breast; they also need divine energy to do what they’re supposed to do.

Once that first step has been taken and they’re reawakened, then they know exactly what they’re supposed to do.

The heart was given to us to love God. It doesn’t need to be taught that. Our spiritual master, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, says it beautifully that once that heart awakens, it is like a chick waking up. You don’t have to teach that chick how to chirp. It already knows how to do it.

Once your heart reawakens, it already knows how to worship God because that’s what it was there for. You feel so joyful after you have that [Opening of the Spiritual Heart].

H: You’ve had that experience?

S: Yes!

As we’ve mentioned before about love, once you have God’s love inside your heart, then you start to see everybody else as having that same love of God. You cannot hate that person. You feel unification, which is what we are talking about.

H: This is one of the things that you do. In fact, I saw you on the 29th giving [the Opening of the Spiritual Heart] to a woman who came up.

S: There were other people who didn’t want to come up [to the stage] but they wanted a bit of a private session [for the Opening of the Spiritual Heart]. They took the name Allah Hu. It is about getting that name into the heart; it doesn’t matter what you use to call upon God because once [the name of your preference] enters the heart, that is what does all the work. They felt straight away their heart beating and warmth in their heart. Quite a few people took that on [the day of the Unitarian Spiritualism programme].

H: A lot of people talk about spirituality. What is the importance of spirituality in religions?

Younus AlGohar (Y): As far as my understanding is concerned, I see religion as a physical exercise of different rituals. You worship God with your body. Whereas spirituality is about enlightenment of the souls, strengthening them, making a spiritual journey, arriving at a destination in the ethereal world (which is not this phenomenal world).

It is interesting how the Gospel of Thomas talks about the Kingdom of God that Jesus promises to his disciples. I want Brother Steve to comment on what Jesus [meant] when he said, ‘I will take you to a world which eyes have ever dreamt of and no hearts have every desired.’

H: That’s interesting because the Gospel of Thomas is not part of Bible, but they call it the apocryphal text. Steve, are you familiar with this?

S: Yes, I’m very familiar with this. It talks about love and spirituality which is not always what the church wants us to learn. They’re very much into dogmas.

H: I guess Constantine wanted that book buried, right?

S: Right. Once you have that divine energy, when you read such scriptures, you have to have more of an understanding of it. Jesus did say to his followers, ‘I promise you a kingdom that no eye has seen, and no ear has heard of.’

If you really look into that and think about it, there were prophets before: Abraham and Moses came and spoke about God’s kingdom and told people how to get to God’s kingdom.

Jesus, when he came, he told them, ‘It is a place you’ve never heard of or seen.’

He was talking about his own kingdom. Another very important work we do is showing people the path to Jesus through this [Opening of the Spiritual Heart]. Jesus is actually here and he is gathering his people. He is letting their souls mingle with his. Again, it is not a worship, it is love – a connection.

H: That is an interesting distinction: you’re not worshipping, you’re loving. Arguably, I guess this is what the message of Jesus was.

S: We were in Mexico City last week. There were well over 800 people who are Catholics or were Catholics (but it never really leaves you, does it?). When we said that, there was a huge relief and cheer that we were talking about making the heart the worship place and that you don’t have to go to churches. We [told them], ‘We are not going to show you pictures of Jesus suffering on the cross. We are going to show you the true image of Jesus – the live image of Jesus.’

I think this is what people want to hear. I think they’re a bit fed up.

Terrorism

H: These days, it seems to me that people are possibly fed up with their religions – but they’re also possibly concerned about the directions things are headed in the world. We’ve got terrorism – Islamic and otherwise.

Y: But the thing is, do we not need to find out: what could be the reason why people are fed up with their religions?

H: Yeah!

Y: And then why [this is happening to] a religion like Islam, which has been around for almost 15 centuries and produced wonderful spiritual leaders like Rumi, Shirazi, Hafiz and all these great Sufis who only talked about love and brotherhood. They never promoted hatred; they mingled with followers of every religion and never talked about exclusion. Then suddenly, we have this in front of us where people are saying, ‘Allahu Akbar!’ and there is a bomb blast.

This is scary. Some people will jump to conclusions that Islam is teaching all this hatred. Some others have reservations and some others are confused. But the thing is: how, having served humanity for the past 14 centuries, has Islam been dragged to a position where people don’t want to hear the world, Islam?

To my understanding, it happens when spirituality is taken off religion – when people lose connection with God. When people do not know how to revive the human instincts and human characteristics in them that, of course, are adhered to the souls and spirits, not to the body. The body is just a container.

If the soul inside the body is pure, the body will act pure.

If the soul inside the body is impure, then obviously these things will happen. This is the case with every single religion today. Since they divorced spirituality from the religions, religions have lost their systems of spiritual enlightenment.

We need to understand that spirituality is the core of every religion.

When spirituality is separated from a religion, what is happening in the name of Islam right now is what will happen.

S: We recognise that this battle that is going on is not between Christians and Muslims; it is about love and hate. There were two cases in the news just last week: Jihadi Jack and the White Widow. I mean, they’re saying that they’re being attracted to Islam, but they’re not being attracted to the loving, tolerant teachings of Sufism. They’re being attracted to the hardline, hateful Wahhabis. They’re being attracted to hate; they’re not being attracted to love.

We’re building on the love side and telling people, ‘This is a big cover-up. This is not about religion. This is about the great divide on the end of love and hate.’

H: Sometimes I think somebody has got an agenda to just divide people. I know you travel the world trying to spread the message of love and spirituality. The kind of hate you just mentioned where people do commit acts of terrorism or are about to hurt other people – how can you root that out?

Y: We can only do something partially. For example, the youth who haven’t been yet affected by radicalisation, we can give them the right interpretation of their religion. We can tell them, ‘No, [the meaning of the holy text that the extremists give you is not true]. This is not what it means.’

We need to nip the devil in the bud. When they have already been radicalised, then you can’t root that out from their lives. They’re gone, they’re history. They’ll do what they want to do.

In order to be able to have a good society in the future, we need to work on the youth, not these people who have already been indoctrinated into hatred. Nothing can be done about them, honestly.

H: I agree with that. You try to reach young people, but then you may not reach everybody. Maybe some of those people [you influence] will reach such people.

Y: Of course. But we should do whatever we can do. Whatever is humanly possible.

H: Yeah. We are very fortunate, we live in prosperous, Western countries. But some people, even though they have all the luxuries of life, they are lacking inner peace. Is there anything we can do about that?

Inner Peace

S: Inner peace is all to do with the restlessness of the heart and souls. The whole purpose of coming in this world, we say, is that you should reconnect your souls with God.

You should manage to reawaken your souls. Everybody in their life gets the chance to do that. It is about grabbing that chance. Once that energy enters your heart, then the restlessness goes.

You can see so many people converting from one religion to another. We spoke about the importance of religions [during the programme]. Do we need religions? Another problem is that when people do leave religions, they can join some self-concocted following. We’ve travelled quite a lot to mind, body and soul expos. The things that you see there are just unbelievable. You know, hair reading, palm reading, etc.

H: I guess that won’t work for everybody!

S: Yeah, it won’t work for everybody. Chakras is another word [for spirits]. They talk about balancing the chakras. They do all sorts of things to balance these chakras and it can work temporarily. There is energy everywhere, so you’ll feel some temporary energy but it is not serving that purpose. That is why people are still going to be restless; they will be going for more top-ups of these sessions.

It is not just about balancing the chakras. They need to be reawakened and energised with divine energy. Then, people won’t be going back to these places and spending their hard-earned money. Spirituality is free; it is from God.

You shouldn’t have to pay money to connect yourself to God.

H: For people watching this right now, what would you advise them to do to deal with these issues? I really think that people do have a need for some kind of connection to the divine. If they don’t get that, you have got to find an outlet somehow – so what do you recommend?

S: To connect to God, you have to find a spiritual master – somebody who has got power and authority. You can’t just do it by reading books; you could watch somebody fly a plane your whole life [but] it won’t allow you to fly that plane. Similarly, you need somebody how to teach you how to reawaken your heart and souls. You need a divine, spiritual master who will connect you with God and reawaken your souls.

H: Do we know anybody who fits that description?

S: We know somebody who is very close by.

S: This is the beauty of our message. It has been made so simple. You don’t have to leave your workplace, family or opt out of society to join the spiritual path. You can quite simply go on TheAwaitedOne.com or GoharShahi.us. You can go to YouTube – we have AlRa TV.

So you can go on there. Every evening at 10 PM GMT, His Holiness does speeches. He explains further teachings of spirituality. He teaches the youth [and started an initiative known as Young Sufis of Great Britain]. He will answer any questions submitted there. The beauty of this is that you don’t have to watch it live; you can check them out anytime on YouTube.

You can go to the website and look at the true images of HDE Gohar Shahi and Jesus Christ. You can just ask for your heart to be opened.

H: You can do it on the website?

S: You can do it on the website, just looking at those images. Another option is that you can look at the Full Moon, where we say that the image of HDE Gohar Shahi and Jesus are prominent – and you can ask directly to the Moon.

H: Really? Okay. When is the next Full Moon?

Deradicalisation

Y: I want to say something.

I reflect on this point: if God really wanted us to kill people, and this is how we will make him happy, then by doing this, everybody will be dead. Who will go into the temples and mosques? This is so silly.

[Some individuals] claim to adhere to some religion and they don’t practise or understand that religion, yet somehow, they want to sacrifice their lives and claim others’ lives. What is the driving force? What is the benefit of doing this? This is crazy. It doesn’t make sense to me.

H: No, it doesn’t make sense. But it still happens. What would you do about it though?

Y: I really am dazzled and boggled. I do not know how to go about it. I can only reach out to the youth and tell them, ‘Look this is not exactly what God wants from you. You want to love everybody and respect everybody.’

If you think God wants you to kill everybody, I don’t think I should believe in such a God.

H: We’re talking about a universal spirituality, in a sense. As a counter-action to a religion or religious institution that’s gotten into a state where they’re preaching a misguiding philosophy of hate (that sometimes happen in religions where they’ve gotten that negative message). It also seems to me today that there seems to be a growing sense of atheism. Maybe more in the West than elsewhere.

Y: What do you expect from people when they practise a religion and they learn hatred – and they’re killing people in the name of God? This is what will happen: people will become atheists, obviously. People who are law-abiding citizens – who want peace in their lives and who don’t want hatred – they will think, ‘This crap is coming from God. We’re better off without not having God in our lives.’ This is why people are becoming atheists every day. I don’t blame them.

Reaching Out to Atheists

H: The message of universal spirituality – is that a message that can get through to atheists?

Y: If you are eating a rotten banana and your stomach is upset, the best possible solution that I can think of is to give you another fresh banana and tell you, ‘That one is going to make you ill. So take this banana [instead].’

If one philosophy of a religion is messed up and it has been adulterated on a larger scale where you can’t fix it, you better introduce a new philosophy: a philosophy of spirituality which can benefit you immediately.

When people have the counter-philosophy of divine love in front of them, probably, they will embrace it. We need to switch to spirituality from religions.

H: Let’s imagine for a second here that we are talking to an atheist. What message would you give that person?

Y: ‘Awaken your soul.’ Because you are not your body. You are more your soul. In order to reap the benefits of having a soul in your body, you need to enlighten your soul so that you can have all the power in you which is provided by your soul.

So to all the individuals who practise atheism, who do not believe in God: forget about believing in God. I want you to believe in yourself and be at your optimum. In order to be at your optimum, you need to at least revive your spiritual characteristics. That’s all. Simple.

Spiritual Healing

H: We hear stories of people who are healed through their faith, spirituality or religion – even through divine energy. Can you talk a little bit about healing with divine energy?

S: As we said, negative energy is within us. We’re drawing in negative energies through everyday life – watching the television or even breathing the air. Once that negative energy attacks the cells, it causes whatever illness that you have. Even if it is an illness that is incurable medically, once the positive energy enters your veins, then that positive energy negates all the negative out. It will go straight into your blood system and become a healing process. Your heart will just generate divine energy continuously, even when you are sleeping. Throughout the whole day, you will be given this positive energy that just surrounds your body.

We’ve been very successful in spiritual healing.

H: Even with people that are, maybe, near the end? A fatal diagnosis?

S: Well, you’ve met Mir Ali quite a few times now. He was in quite a bad way in the UK. I think you’d be very surprised to see how he is now. We’ve had many people in these expos [who we healed].

A man, Joseph, at the New York Expo, was diagnosed with HIV. We did quite a lot of extensive healing on him. I returned to New York some months later and we did some more healing on him. The next time we saw him a year afterwards, he said he had the all-clear. That was quite remarkable.

There has been quite a lot of in Mexico queuing up to receive spiritual healing. Many hundreds of people came for healing in Mexico. People do recognise spiritual healing. Definitely for atheists, if they have tried God in other ways and it hasn’t worked for them, and they have given up on God – then why not try this? It is free! If you are taking medicine, you don’t know who made it, but you take it because you think it will work.

So we’re saying, ‘Just try it. Try another path. If you don’t believe the way to connect yourself to God was a religion, then try spirituality.’

H: People can go to the website and get the [Opening of the Spiritual Heart] through the website. How long are you in town for?

Y: We’ll be here another few days and then we will go back home to the UK.

AlRa TV

H: So you have AlRa TV, which I know that you use to reach out [to people]. One of the things that you are doing that I am aware of is helping to deradicalise Islamic youth in the UK and elsewhere. What other kind of messages are you trying to get out through AlRa TV?

Y: This is a very hot issue right now. Every night when I speak at 10 PM UK time, people from all over the world send in their questions about the right interpretation [of their religion]. It is not just Muslims. They come from different religions.

H: Because this is a universal message.

Y: Yes. I reply to them in details. Most of these people are satisfied and then they change their ways. Many people, having listened to my lectures, have sort of shunned their radicalised intentions. They were regretting and saying that only God knows how they got into this [nonsense].

They are very much part of this love and peace movement now. So it is working. People from as far as Australia, Asian countries like Sri Lanka, Indian, Bangladesh and even Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia [are watching my videos]. A lot of young people between 17-25 years of age come to listen to my lectures from Saudi Arabia. The good thing is they’re changing and they’re really happy. They say that they never heard such a wonderful interpretation of their religion before. All they heard was aggression, revenge, taking over the world and putting up the flag [of Islam] in Washington DC – and [we told them], ‘No, it is not all about that, my friends!’

H: I’ve met some great people from Saudi Arabia and a couple of them were actually working here at the station. They were awesome.

Y: Good people are everywhere.

H: Exactly! And the stereotypes we hear only cause us to really misunderstand people. People are people no matter where they come from.

Y: There are more good people.

Good people have outnumbered bad people. But the thing is, good people are quiet and the bad people are noisy.

All we hear is the noise so we think, ‘Oh, the world is corrupt; everybody is bad.’ Every bad person is making noise and every good person is sitting quietly.

H: It only takes one bad apple to spoil a whole bunch.

Y: We need to root out that bad apple out!

H: You’re doing the speech every day. So you must always be writing and getting prepared.

Y: No, I don’t do it.

H: So it’s all spontaneous?

Y: It is intuitional and inspirational.

H: So do you know what your next topic will be?

Y: I don’t know, it depends on people. Whatever people ask, I just open my mouth and I speak, honestly.

H: It is probably divinely [inspired].

Y: I don’t know how it happens and where it comes from, but it happens. I speak and speak and they hear it.

H: It was great to have you here always! It has been great to have this conversation. I hope you have a great trip back to the UK and all the best with AlRa TV!

New Video: Surah Ash Shuraa Ki Ayat 52 Ki Batni Tashreeh | By Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yi_VnVrhdfc

Younus AlGohar delivers a breathtaking speech explaining the true meaning of the Koranic verse 42:52, revealing fascinating and unprecedented divine secrets.

This is an advanced lecture suitable for those who have a background in Koranic studies and Sufism. It is highly recommended that you, in order to understand this speech fully, read 'The Religion of God (Divine Love)' by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

English: thereligionofgod.com/
Urdu: www.mehdifoundation.com/the-r...

Main points:

- If the esoteric explanation of Koran 42:52 (Surah Ash-Shura) is not given, then it may appear to contradict other verses of the Koran. God addressed Prophet Mohammad in Koran 42:52 and said, 'I sent a Soul as Divine Revelation to you with my command. And before that, you did not understand the book. And what did you know of faith? The divine energy was appointed within you. Out of my servants, I will grant guidance to those who I wish to through the divine energy, the flame of which I have placed in you. It is you who grants guidance towards the Straight Path.’

- Many clerics and scholars who translated this verse translated 'Soul (Rouh)' as 'Book'. They did this because they lack knowledge. Those who don't accept Prophet Mohammad to be divine energy say that wherever the word Noor (divine energy) was used for Prophet Mohammad in the Koran, it was actually referred to the Koran itself. And wherever the word 'Rouh' (soul) was used for Prophet Mohammad - which would prove the eminence of Prophet Mohammad - they said the word 'Rouh' refers to the Koran. And then they write that the soul represents life and the Koran is living, it also has a soul. This is a great injustice.

- It is not just the clerics who have been spreading misguidance; the interpreters of the Koran have been spreading misguidance this way for centuries. If the word 'Rouh' (soul) here is referred to the book and it means that Prophet Mohammad obtained guidance after the book was revealed, then why did Prophet Mohammad say that he was a prophet before he came into this world? Prophet Mohammad is the embodiment of divine energy. Do they mean to insinuate that Prophet Mohammad was misguided (God forbid) and then obtained guidance? So this means that the way interpreters and clerics have translated this verse of the Koran is incorrect.

- There is general guidance, exclusive guidance and ultra-exclusive guidance. General guidance is the definition most people know, where someone was misguided and then granted guidance. General guidance is when divine energy enters the heart. However, as one seeks to progress further towards God and his nearness, they need a newer type of guidance: the exclusive kind. So God said in Koran 42:52, ‘I will grant guidance to those who I wish to through the divine energy, the flame of which I have placed in you,’ which means that this type of guidance is not general. It is an ultra-exclusive type of guidance: it relates to witnessing the divine splendour. In this verse of the Koran, God is basically saying, ‘O’ Prophet Mohammad, it is through you that people will see me.' Only Prophet Mohammad who was granted the knowledge of seeing God.

- The Soul mentioned in this verse is not a common soul - it is not Prophet Mohammad’s own soul either, because it was revealed unto him while he was on Earth. Just as God said that he inserted Rouh-e-Quds in Jesus Christ, similarly, in Prophet Mohammad too, there was an additional Soul. The ‘Book’ God mentions is a reference to the knowledge that God revealed the Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus respectively and the different levels of faith their respective knowledge would take a follower to.
