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].

Unitarian Spiritualism: The Transcript

Unitarian Spiritualism: The Transcript

The following is the transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech delivered at the Unitarian Spiritualism Conference in Toronto, Canada. The speech was preceded by a few words from social media star and TV host, Waqar Zaka, and the chairman of Messiah Foundation International, Mir Liaqat Ali.

Waqar Zaka

My personal experience with [Younus AlGohar] is that this is a method of bringing spiritual elements in your heart. I think it is amazing that sir has a method that actually creates that atmosphere where you can go anywhere in the world, but still your heart will be connected to God. I think this is a great service to humanity.

There is a lot of confusion about what [spiritualism] actually is, especially in Pakistan. People often mistake it for being another sect [of Islam] and many other things. My job as a reporter is to present the facts. Most of the time, people misunderstand things which they don’t want to understand. My only advice is that please use social media in such a way where you do not hide your good deeds.

Mir Liaqat Ali

I have been asked to introduce HH Younus AlGohar. I did spend 10-11 years in his company. Very intently, I observed His Holiness. I don’t know whether you realise it or not, how fortunate we are that this knowledge and blessings and connection with divinity comes from the main source.

For example, when you flip the switch and turn the light on, the source of energy is coming from somewhere else. Similarly, we are getting connected through His Holiness to the powerhouse.

Here is a chance that you will have divine connection. Ask as many questions as you can to understand. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has left a wide window open for us. It is a matter of your priorities. This is your chance to be connected to the powerhouse.

His Holiness has worked very hard and travelled from the far east – Osaka, Japan – to the far west – Pakistan, India, Europe, etc. Here is your chance to connect with divinity.

Younus AlGohar, CEO of Messiah Foundation International

Good evening everybody. I am always very happy to be here. I would like to share with you some of the selected observational points that I have learnt throughout my spiritual career.

I was born and bred in Pakistan and obviously had a different attitude towards life – being born in a country where everybody thinks he is right and, unfortunately, nobody is right. When I came to live in England, I had difficulty in understanding others and difficulty in explaining to them that I was right. I lived there for 27-28 years and I remodelled my thought process.

I have learnt that the most difficult job is to tell somebody, ‘I want to correct you.’

The moment you say this to them, they will ask you, ‘Are you correct?’ And then we enter into a new debate. When I say  that I remodelled my thought process, this is exactly what I meant. I change some of my words that I used in the past – for example, ‘I want to correct you.’ I deprived myself of the luxury of saying these words. I want to share something with you – that’s what it is.

We are unattended in this Planet Earth. We think God is watching over us but we do not know whether we are [actually] being watched over. We feel as if we have been abandoned and stranded. We are just doing what we feel like doing. We claim to love our parents, children and we claim to love God, but this is just a claim. We talk about love and peace, but we just talk about it; we do not know what love is.

Every single human being has a different philosophy of life – and he is dead sure that his philosophy is right and everybody else is wrong.

Religions have expired. They were very good, but now religions have become a problem; they do not serve the purpose anymore. They are dead bodies; like a body without a soul. If the religions were still intact and serving the purpose, then Christians, Jews and Muslims would love each other. They wouldn’t fight. They wouldn’t kill each other.

I come from a Muslim background. I studied the Koran. I studied the Bible and Torah too. But I would like to share with you one particular story from the Koran.

The Story of the Last Adam

Adam’s body was being made in the Paradise and the angels raised an objection. They asked God, ‘You are creating Adam again*? Again, he will do the same thing that he did previously – bloodshed, hatred and nothing else. Why are you created Adam again?’

This was the objection raised by the angels because they had seen what Adams had done previously: bloodshed, spread of hatred, killing, massacres, carnage – all in the name of God. All in the name of the religions.

But God this time was so confident because he came up with a newer idea. He was going to do something which he did not do before. On this occasion, he was going to award Adam with extraordinary knowledge of spirituality.

Prior to the coming of the Last Adam, the progenies of all other Adams were not given the knowledge of spirituality. They would simply worship God.

They were not given the knowledge of spirituality with the help of which they could awaken their souls or strengthen their souls. They were naive of spiritual meditation. They were not able to make astral projection. They were not able to make spiritual journeys.

But for the Last Adam, God has something els in mind. He told the angels, ‘This time, I am going to grant this Adam some magnificent knowledge: knowledge of spirituality. A type of knowledge in which he would be able to retrieve divine energy from my different names.; God asked the angels, ‘If you are aware of that knowledge, tell me now.’ They said, ‘No. You never told us this knowledge. How would we know it?’

The principal idea was that when this knowledge would be granted to Adam he would be able to spiritualise his life, strengthen his souls and be able to spiritually connect himself to God. He would be so consumed with the divine environment with the presence of God that he would only spread love. He would only love his fellowmen. He would never kill or hate anybody. He would become sublime.

The concept of jealousy comes when there is no equality – when one is superior and other is inferior. But when everybody is equal, there cannot be a concept of jealousy.

The concept of jealousy came from the Devil. This happened when he realised that with this new knowledge of spirituality, Adam has become so eminent – even if he tried, he would not be able to compete with Adam in spirituality. Because he did not have spirits and this knowledge of spiritual is for those who have spirits. This was an utter disappointment for the Devil.

However, now when spirituality became the mode of love and peace, and pride for humanity, Adam descended on Earth. Before he could teach his progeny how to become sublime, his sons fell out and Abel killed Cain – the same story again. But those who were able to obtain the knowledge of spirituality really become sublime. After Adam, Abraham came to this world. He was awarded a bit more spiritual knowledge in comparison to Adam. With his power and knowledge, he thrived more with love. Subsequent to Abraham came Moses. Then Jesus – and Jesus brought about the methodology of divine love. Then the last prophet, Prophet Mohammad, came and opened the gates upon humanity to see God; however only a little portion of humanity were able to see God.

Now we are living in the 21st century. Religions – how they were practised when the religions were established is just a story. We have not met either Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, or Prophet Mohammad. We have just heard about them. The source is books. We have never been in direct contact with any of the prophets or God. So what we know about God, prophets and religions – our source is very weak. We do not know how many times the religious books have been adulterated and to what extent they have been altered.

Our total dependency and reliance about the religion and God is on the books – and somebody might have fiddled with the books. This approach has failed; you can never come to know the truth by the books.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has come with a marvellous, magnificent, brilliant idea of putting men directly in the audience with God.

When the throbs of your heart are synchronised with the name of God – and as a result of this –  divine energy starts to be produced, you feel the warmth of God’s light and love. Within the perimeters of your heart, you are in direct contact with God.

In order to love God, believe you me: neither do you have to be a Muslim, Christian or a Jew. All you need to be is whoever you are because God’s love is for everybody. Whoever wants to love God, God will definitely embrace such a person.

Our struggle is to tell you how to learn this spiritual method. You do not need to go to university or a college; it is not a one-year diploma. It doesn’t take too long. The only time you will need somebody’s help in spirituality is right in the beginning when God’s name with its spirit is implanted and cultivated in the soil of your heart.

This implant of God’s name is the principal gateway to loving God.

It’s like a plant: you sow a seed, keep watering it and one day it will turn into a big tree.

According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘The Kalima (Word of God) is like a seed. When that seed has been planted in the soil of the heart and you keep watering it with divine energy, it will turn one day into a big tree – the roots of which will lie in your heart. And the branches of which will cover even the imperial dark.

When this comes from a cleric, it is a piece of knowledge. It will become a reality when it will come from a Sufi heart because he has the ability to turn that God’s name into a tree in your heart.

It doesn’t take long; it’s a simple transfer. I was just thinking how money is sent from one place to another and how people are afraid of money laundering. One day people will come and say, ‘There are some newly introduced divine laws – God-laundering.’ God has been transferred from one heart to another.

This is a spiritual transfer. This is what we do.

Divine love is something that you, involuntarily, are not capable of. Your heart must learn to love. It is very unfortunate though, that in order to hate somebody, you do not need to learn. People are so obsessed with hatred and everybody is a champion. If you ask them, ‘Did you go to university, do you have a master’s degree in hatred?’ they will say no – but they know how to hate. But love? You need to learn it.

You don’t need to learn to hate. But you need to learn to love. Because love is precious; God doesn’t want every Tom, Dick and Harry to have the luxury of love.

When you learn to love and you acquire it, you become an honest lover. Between a boyfriend and girlfriend, the love is not really pure; they can cheat on each other [easily]. Similarly, every single religious person is cheating on God every time he sets foot into a mosque, church or temple. They’re cheating on God because they are saying the name of God and worshipping God, but they have something else in their hearts; their intentions are polluted. They are not honest with themselves. They are not honest with God.

God doesn’t just want to make you worship. God wants to love you and God wants to be loved by you.

There must be individuals sitting here who must have known the feeling of being loved. The moment you realise somebody loves you – somebody has been following you – the very fact that you are being loved is wonderful.

When somebody says to you, ‘You look wonderful,’ you go back home and look at yourself in the mirror. You know yourself, but you want to see your face again when somebody tells you that you look beautiful. This is called recognition.

You are only worshipping God; God wants to know that you love him. The only information that people receive about God is through books. [Muslims are told], ‘Go to the mosque five times a day. If you don’t, you are a non-believer. Fast in the month of Ramadan. If you don’t, you are a non-believer.’ This is all true, but then again, what is the purpose of the religion? The purpose of the religion is a connection with God.

It doesn’t really matter what religion you follow. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are monotheistic religions and they all come from the same source: they are all Abrahamic faiths. Jews, Christians and Muslims believe in the same God. We have everything today: the Bible, Torah, Talmud and Koran. There are many thousand mosques all over the world, beautifully built. There are huge churches, synagogues and temples. But are we connected to God? No, we are not. If you are not connected to God, then the purpose is lost.

We are in the business of connecting people to God. The rest is secondary issues.

The primary issue is a connection with God.

Questions and Answers Session

Q: Once your heart is activated with God’s name, how do you maintain the number of times the heart does mention God?

A: It is not in your hands. The number of times a heart can say the name of God is 144 000 times a day. That is the maximum. Only God will decide how many times your heart should be allowed to say God’s name. This is how it is because God is almighty. It is up to him how much love he wants to grant you. In front of God, we’re all beggars and beggars can’t be choosers.

Q: If you wish to love, God has to grant it to you?

A: God is our creator and he knows what dose of love should be given to our soul. If you take an overdose, you will become a Malang (someone intoxicated in God’s love).

Q: You wouldn’t believe how things went in my favour so that I could come here. I came to Toronto from Windsor to meet you (370 KM). I believe that me being here [is a sign that God] has granted me more love. How do I get enlightened?

A: During the daytime, you are more inclined towards the mundane aspect of life so the pace of the heart gets slow because you are busy with other stuff. But during the night when there is nothing for you to do and you are more focused on your heart, that is the time when your heart performs more of its Dhikr (invocation of God’s name).

Q: How do I reach out to Prophet Mohammad? I want to be enlightened and see God. When I started meditating, I was in so much pain.

A: People often talk about the Third Eye. With the help of the Third Eye, people can see things which they are not normally able to see. There is no Third Eye [per se]; there is only an eye. That eye will open up once your Carnal Self is completely purified.

The Carnal Self (Nafs) is at the bellybutton. It is the Ego. When this soul is completely purged and purified, your eye is open forever. What you cannot see with these two physical eyes, with that, you will be able to see everything. Even prophets and angels; everything that you cannot now see with the physical eyes.

The Third Eye is actually the purification [of the Carnal Self]. When this happens you will be able to see, but it takes time.

*His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals that the history of mankind did not begin 6000 years ago with Adam and Eve. The Adam and Eve we know from the Torah, Bible and Koran was the final pair sent by God. Prior to this, different Adams were sent into different localities around the world – which is why the skin colours and temperaments of different nations vary. Learn more about the true history of humankind in His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s book, The Religion of God (Divine Love).

God’s Point of View

God’s Point of View

God’s Point of View

The following is an excerpt from a speech Younus AlGohar delivered to a gathering of spiritual leaders in Mexico before the Amor Universal Conference.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Those who are spiritual – who are Godly – are always happy. They never look sad.’

When I went into the depth of knowledge pertaining to God, I found out that God is more romantic than Romeo and he wants his friend to act like Juliet. However, when we become spiritual and religious, we become so serious.

When it comes to becoming a spiritual person, there should not be any difference whether that seeker is a woman or a man. There are so many people in the world who talk about spirituality; however, their definition of spirituality is very fake.

The point I want to raise today is how do we, the creation, think – and how does God think? What is God’s point of view? How does he think about us and what does he want?

Both parties should be aware that there is a relationship between them. For example, if you love me, you should tell me. If I love you, I should I tell you. If I love a woman, and everybody else knows but her (or vice versa), what is the point?

So in a similar fashion, if we want to love God, we should tell him. If I want to tell a woman that I love her, but she is not here, then it is like talking to the walls. When you are in a mosque, church, temple or synagogue and you say, ‘God, I love you,’ you are telling walls.

The temples, churches, mosques, etc. are not the true houses of God. In these worship places, we do some sort of worship. That’s it.

The true house of God is the heart.

There was a man at the time of Moses. He heard that Moses spoke to God on the Mount of Sinai. So he went to every mountain and yelled, ‘God, where are you?’ There was no reply. When there was no reply, he became really depressed. He said, ‘God, I looked for you everywhere. You spoke to Moses on this Mount of Sinai. I came here and called out your name, but you didn’t reply.’

Then, [sometime later], it was his calling. he was about to die. The angels who were taking out his soul asked him, ‘Why are you so sad?’

He said, ‘I wanted to speak with God all my life. I wanted to love him all my life, but I couldn’t find any way.’

Then, in that last moment, the angels said to him, ‘Speak to God now. He is listening to you.’

He said, ‘God, where are you? I looked for you everywhere.’

God replied, ‘You looked for me everywhere but you forgot yourself. I was in your heart.’

So we need to find out this heart’s door and how to open it.

This is the important organ in our body, whether it is about our physical life or whether it is about our relationship with God.

People want to love God. Some people want to love God while being a Muslim. Some others want to love God as a Christian. Every religious person wants to love God within their religion. This is why everybody loves him differently.

But now, God wants them to love him with uniformity. All should love him with the heart.

Are You Crazy?
24th September 2017|Articles

Are You Crazy?

Are You Crazy?

Sanity and insanity have to do with one’s thought process. Sanity is considered to be a balanced thought process according to the standards of ethical values and norms of the society.

Anything practised by a majority of people for an extended period of time, at a certain stage, it becomes normal. Normal is something that everyone likes and practises. Something that people, as a majority, do not practise, is considered to be abnormal.

If every single person in the world is crazy, then being crazy is normal.

For example, if every member of the nation speaks loudly — and they scream and shout — and they consider it normal, what can you say?

So sanity and insanity can be described, however, there has to be a societal, spiritual or intellectual mirror in which you can judge the norms of sanity.

Sometimes normal things, according to your common sense, appear to be abnormal in the eyes of others who have different standards of ethical and moral values.

Learn more about how the different sources of moral values affect our worldview in the May edition of the Messiah Herald: Save Society with EQ.

In the country where I was born, if somebody is naked and walking on the street, people will call him a mad person. However, in Europe it has become a fashion; [some] people are demanding to be allowed to walk around nude. There are restaurants in Central London where the diners eat naked. They’re all well-educated people; even then, they do not think that if everybody is naked, it will create a chaotic hygienic problem. I really don’t like this idea, but then again, so what? If somebody else wants to be naked, I don’t care; it is their life and they have the right to live it as they want.

So we don’t really know what is sanity and insanity anymore, because people have different standards nowadays.

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

Calling Humanity Through God’s Love

You will rarely see a guy who wants to love God. Most religious people do only talk about Paradise and its damsels.

Seeking union with God or love of God is a thing of mythology for a majority of religious people. Most religious people don’t buy the notion of God’s love.

If you closely and delicately examine the difference between luxuries of the world and the Paradise, it’s just a matter of quality; their nature is the same. How can those be pure in the heart who ignore God and only seek their own pleasure?

According to the Koran 41:31, ‘There you will find in Paradise everything that a Nafs (Carnal Self) aches for.’ Paradise does not contain the pleasure of love.

When God created human beings for the reason that God may be known and may be loved, then why do humans go after the pleasure and comforts of Paradise? Paradise has nothing else to offer but the pleasures to the Carnal Self.

What a distraction! What a mirage.

His Divine Eminence Ra Gohar Shahi is calling the nations of the world through God’s love and mutual human love. His Divine Eminence is inviting humanity to enslave their evil nature and embrace love — a divine attribute.

Cricket & Spirituality

Cricket & Spirituality

Cricket & Spirituality

Cricket is a game where every single delivery has to be played with individual planning and practice. In so many ways, cricket is very close to spirituality.

His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘In spirituality, only those are successful who never give up.’ In cricket, it is the same.

The game is on until the last delivery is bowled. Don’t ever think that you have given up too many wickets and now it is very easy for the other team to score and reach the total. Don’t give up and lose hope; this is not how you play cricket.

The match is decided on the final delivery, not before that. It changes suddenly. When it changes, then those who are really set on the crease keep stumbling; they do not succumb to falling wickets in quick succession.

You have to keep your morale high and you must be determined. You must be prepared not to give in anything.

The key point which you must remember in every game is that whenever you have aggression and anger, don’t shout, scream or quarrel.

Make sure that you don’t waste your aggression in any verbal or physical altercation. Let it remain inside you so you turn it into performance.

The Dangers of Self-Love

The Dangers of Self-Love

The Dangers of Self-Love

This article was originally published on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page. Learn more about self-love in the Messiah Herald: Save Society with EQ

Self-love will turn you into an animal. Divine love will make you a wonderful person.

Everybody has this natural admiration for oneself. It is natural, but there is a time and point when self-admiration goes to a new extreme. Then, it is so heightened and elevated that it becomes an illness.

When something is wrong with your physical organs, you detect that problem by virtue of spotting symptoms. However, not too many people pay attention on behavioural issues and cognitive issues. Spirituality has answers for all those problems.

Every form of love is intoxicating. Whether it is carnal love, monetary love, self-love or divine love, love is really addictive.

However, the most dangerous form of love is self-love. In self-love only, you harm and hurt others. You take their lives. You ruin their lives.

In divine love, in order to benefit humanity, you ruin your own life. You don’t hurt or harm anybody. If you see a hungry man, you deprive yourself of the food that is supposed to go in your stomach and give it to him. In order to help others, you give the breath you need to survive away to people. That is divine love.

Self-love is very easy and common. People don’t have to make efforts. They fall in love with themselves and they don’t even notice. There is a time when your spiritual faculties within you become blind to detect this very dangerous form of love.

An enlightened heart will never allow self-love to grow in it, because self-love is not just self-destructive — it is like a time bomb.

It will ruin friends and families. It will ruin countries. If you become a president and you suffer from the disease of self-love, you will ruin the country. If you are a powerful leader and you a sick man, and your sickness lies in self-love, maybe you will put the entire world at the brink of war.

Now is the time when we need to understand whether or not we are doing anything that might trigger self-admiration to the extreme or self-love. We have to be very careful. Self-love is unprofitable; it is only destructive.

Some ‘spiritualists’ underline the need for having self-love. They equal self-love with self-esteem. However, there is a very thin blue line between these two regimes.

Self-esteem is nowhere near self-admiration and self-love. Self-love is not healthy; it is not in the welfare of your spiritual being.

Self-love is very dangerous not just for yourself, but to those also who are around you.

As a child, born and bred in a Muslim family in Pakistan, I had always been told that all the other celestial books have been gravely adulterated. We believed that the Bible and Torah were given to Messengers from God and they were the true word of God; however, subsequent to great modifications in those religions, these two books also were adulterated on a ridiculous scale.

As Muslims, we were always told to believe that the Koran is the most accurate book on the face of the world. At the same time, we were told to reject any remote possibility of doubting the authenticity of the book; this was because God Almighty himself had taken the responsibility of keeping the Koran protected. We always had this belief that the Koran cannot be adulterated, though we didn’t really know how.

Authenticity of God’s Word

As I grew up and I became a fortunate disciple of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, I began to understand that God’s word is God’s word. It does not lose its significance if God’s word was delivered to Jesus, Moses or Abraham. I also began to understand that the fact that the [Koran] was given to Prophet Mohammad does not increase its authenticity in comparison to the [Torah and Bible].

We cannot simply say that the celestial books [other than the Koran] are less accurate or insignificant — especially when we know that the Bible, Torah and Koran are God’s word. God’s word is authentic [no matter what prophet it is given to].

However, [as Muslims] we have always been very biased towards the Koran; we have always had this unexplainable reservation and ridiculous prejudice for the Torah and Bible. Unfortunately, adulteration has been the most common factor in all the celestial books. Having become a Sufi and having done comparative studies of religions, I noticed that Muslims still do not want to admit the Koran can be subjected to any adulteration. Somehow or other, it is not just possible for them to do so.

I do not want to offend or disorient anyone. However, I would like to sum up my experience, observation and theological analysis.

My findings are: even if the Koran has not been adulterated, the consequences are no lesser in fatality than that of the Bible or of the Torah. It is not about the words; it is about the meaning.

If the words are as accurate as they were at the time of revelation, but the meaning and understanding of the words have been subject to deception, the result is the same.

Let’s suppose the Koran is free of all doubts and the most authentic book on Earth from God. Does it benefit humanity or the Muslim nation?

If one medicine is adulterated and another is ‘pure’ — but neither of them works for you when you take them, then something is wrong with the pure medicine whether or not you want to accept it. If a patient who took the medicine died, [calling it pure is like refusing to accept] that the medicine killed a man.

If we assume that the Koran became more authentic — not because it was God’s word, but because it was revealed to a Muslim prophet — we would be giving significance to Prophet Mohammad [over] God.

The authenticity of the Koran lies not in it being revealed upon the heart of Prophet Mohammad, but because it is God’s word. If it is authentic, it is authentic because it was God’s word. [But then again, why do Muslims think that] God’s word which was revealed to Moses, Jesus or Abraham is not authentic?

The Nature of the Koran

Once upon a time, there were 73 sects in Islam, but today every single Muslim is an [authority on the religion]. The way people prioritise their opinion in relation to the priority given to Koran only suggests to me that Koran is somewhere in the background. What is more important to people is their own understanding.

Let’s not make an issue out of this; let’s just say that the Koran is very authentic. However, to paraphrase an Urdu proverb, ‘If you think the goat is still alive just because its eyes are wide open, you are gravely mistaken.’

The Koran is very authentic, but the Muslim nation is dead.

You need to understand human philosophy if you want to understand God. God said that he created you upon his own nature; so however corrupt you are, God is on the same page. However pure you may be, you cannot exceed God in purity; if you cannot exceed God in purity, then you cannot exceed God in corruption.

I have every reason to believe that God’s lousy attitude towards humanity has been the prime concern; it has played havoc.

He has been very careless and reckless with words. He just said whatever was dancing on the tips of his tongue. He created piles upon piles of doubts in the Koran.

To my understanding, I would get away if I decide to read a novel from Mills & Boons rather than studying the Koran. It wouldn’t pollute your heart on the same scale. God has subjected [the Koran] to a great deal of corruption and violence. There is nothing in Islamic history but blood. ‘An eye for an eye, an arm for an arm,’ if you follow this rule, everybody would be blind and be limping. However, contemporary Muslims have closed their eyes to reality.

The way the Koran was compiled by Companions of the Prophet has added to the [abundance of] problems that were in it. In the Chapter of Light, God is talking about menses and in the Chapter of Women, God is talking about light. If you read the Koran carefully, you will be completely dismayed and disappointed in God. He doesn’t finish one sentence before starting another.

If I am a holy water well and I give one man dirty water, another man pure water and yet another man blood, as I still the most authentic? [This is what the Koran does]. Every single recipient is dispensed different medicines from the Koran.

Muslims say, ‘The Koran is the most authentic book.’ Then why are they diversified to a degree where no more divisions can be made? Islam has been made subject to total mischief. It is not alive anymore — but God is.

This is why we are calling humanity through divine love. The nature of this divine love is based on His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s concept of love.

New Video: Ayat e Tatheer Ka Pas Manzar | By His Holiness Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrdhGB4VcJI

Younus AlGohar explains the background of the famous verse of the Koran known as Ayat-e-Tatheer, Koran 33:33. He reveals who exactly God was addressing in this verse and why.

Main points

- The addressees of this verse are the wives of Prophet Mohammad. First, God says to them, 'You are the wives of a prophet. You are not common women; therefore, you must understand your position and rank. Do not behave like the average woman.'

- The pre-Islamic era is known as the Age of Ignorance. In the Age of Ignorance, women had their own style of makeup, fashion and conduct. The wives of Prophet Mohammad had been wearing makeup and fashion of the Age of Ignorance. In this verse of the Koran, God reprimands them for it, advises them to obey God and his Messenger and give the religious tax. He also says at the end that he has decided to purify them of all impurities.

- The Koran also says, 'O' wives of Prophet Mohammad, if you engage in any wrongdoings you will be given double punishment as compared to common women because you are not common women.'

- In the West, women and men mingle with one another freely; however, when it comes to the issue of public toilets, toilets are segregated by sex in order to avoid potential dangers. Similarly, God foresees many other issues due to which he forbid women from mingling with men unnecessarily.

- Any Muslim who thinks that Ayat-e-Tatheer was for Prophet Mohammad's progeny - Bibi Fatima, Imam Hassan, Imam Hussain and Syeda Zainab - is committing an act of disbelief. As they are the progeny of Prophet Mohammad, they are pure to begin with. They were born with divine energy. Since God said in Ayat-e-Tatheer, 'We have decided to purify them of impurity,' this does not apply to them.
