The Shrine of Holy Wisdom – Tempe Arizona

The Shrine of Holy Wisdom – Tempe Arizona

The following is the transcript of Sufi Spiritual Revivalist Younus AlGohar’s speech at the Shrine of Holy Wisdom in Tempe, Arizona.

I feel ecstatic to be here with all of you today, who are sitting in the Shrine of Holy Wisdom. That’s is really wonderful and let’s try and discover yet another Shrine of Wisdom within ourselves. Because we have been equipped divinely to hold and preserve an eternal shrine of wisdom and each one of us has that potential. The Shrine Of Wisdom that we carry within our own being is the Spiritual Heart. 

When the physical heart has been spiritualised, energised, awakened, enlightened and the divine energies and the divine light has been restored in the heart, it turns into a Shrine Of Holy Wisdom.

Only God is wise. When God is there everything that has to do with God also arrives in that place. The heart becomes an eternal abode of God in the body and you become an embodiment of divinity. In this day and age, where the signs have been working miracles and we’re all reaping the benefits of this scientific technology, I wonder how people still do not believe in Spiritual Sciences. 

Sufism is the path of love, the path of revival. And it has nothing to do with any particular religion. Sufism is a way which starts within ourselves and culminates within ourselves. Sufism is for everybody, everyone, those aspirants who want to find God, love God and become a mouthpiece of God. It is so wonderful to see how many different types of tribes and nations have been created by God. 

In the very beginning, human beings were all one nation and then with the passage of time when different religions were introduced by God, we were dispersed into many tribes and nations. Some of the human beings who were able to differentiate between tribes and nations, also they were able to know the purpose of these tribes and different nations, took this difference as an identity. Those who did not have spiritual authority and power misinterpreted it and they generated hatred out of this difference.

With the help of Sufism, we can once again find unification. Leaving behind the colours of our skin, and finally, the initial purpose of God which is to love and to be loved. God created man in his own image. God did not mention skin colour. Brown, black white they’re all God’s images, different images. 

There is no colour of the soul, there is no colour of love.

This is what we want to understand, but the problem is with all the religious books that we have in our hands today in different places of worship. Muslim mosques, Christian Churches, Jewish Synagogues, Hindu and Sikh Temples. In different places of worship. The knowledge we have in those books doesn’t really spiritually guide us towards spiritual unification. It tells us, that only you are right. A Hindu thinks only he is right, a Muslim thinks only he is right, maybe a Jew will think only he is right. But my Master said ‘No, you are all right if you are connected with God, you are all right, whomever you are’. Through whichever Messenger or Prophet, you get connected to God. It doesn’t really matter, because religion is not the destiny, it’s just a path.

Your destiny and my destiny, and everybody else’s destiny is God and Divine Love.

Spirituality is such a fascinating word, but then I don’t think there is anything that hasn’t been misinterpreted in this world. Love has been misinterpreted. Religions altered, adulterated, fabricated and now even spirituality also hasn’t assumed to the wounds given to it by perpetrators within the religion. Let me remind you, spirituality is to do with spirits. Even in this Holy Chapel today, there are many angels and spirits, some of which are ready to bless us and some others need to be blessed. But are we spiritual enough to witness their presence? No, although we all have souls and spirits in our body. What are our souls and spirits doing? Why our souls cannot see other souls in the same place? Why the spirits in our body are not able to see other spirits which are present at this moment in time? In the wilderness of ignorance, with a blindfold on our eyes and intellect, we tell ourselves to believe even what we cannot see, but then when it comes to seeing the other souls and other spirits, which we believe are present, and we cannot see them it only tells us that either our souls are dormant. They are not awakened, or we don’t have enough spiritual knowledge. 

With spiritual knowledge, the souls and spirits become able to communicate with other souls and other spirits.

A Sufi loves all. All religions. Even those who do not believe in any religion, because a Sufi sees all as one creation of God. Divinely he is programmed not to discriminate among different creations of God, and as a Sufi, I have come here to share my knowledge, energies with you and to render to you what I can. And also, to take benefits of spirituality that you practice. It’s like a give and takes. I’ll take with me some of your energies and I’ll give you some of my energies so that it becomes an infused spirituality.

 Obviously, you must know some western kind of spirituality and I come from the east where we have our own brand of spirituality. Any type of spirituality is good as long as it is able to revive the souls and awaken them. A guy asked me a question: if there is no spirituality you shouldn’t be able to communicate with other souls and spirits in the spiritual realm, why do people that are not spiritual tend to hate others? That’s a very good question, and the answer is even greater than the question.

The problem is only with the help of spirituality we are able to revive the souls which are responsible for generating love in our body, and without spiritual knowledge, we cannot tame one particular negative soul in our body which, if not tamed, will produce hatred and that is our Lower Self. So in order to make sure that the element of hatred and negativity is removed, eliminated from our character, we need to purify the only one soul, which is responsible for all negativity and is the root of all evil and that is our Nafs (Lower Self) according to Jewish kabbalah. Does the Lower Self, that’s here in the belly button, behind the belly button. Only with the help of spirituality we tame it, we purify it and when it is purified, peace is restored and we don’t hate anybody. In order to avoid hatred, we must be able to tame and to purify this negative soul in our body.

In order to learn to love human beings, unify with human beings and love God, we need to revive and awaken the soul of the heart.

The revival of the soul of the heart is a mystery. There have been many different ways through, which in history people have been reviving and awakening their hearts. There have been different ways. Sometimes an aspiring heart needs to follow a very strict discipline. After only a very strict discipline he or she is able to awaken the heart. Some other times he or she is fortunate enough to find a Spiritual Master and those who find Spiritual Master, their Spiritual Master has done it for them, without them making any effort. This has been the course historically in spirituality from the east, Sufism.

Today we are happy to tell you that our master Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has delegated us to open your heart, to enlighten the heart, to awaken the heart without you needing to make any effort. And this is to do with servitude, this is a labour of love. In order to unify the entire humanity, we are serving humanity with this knowledge of Spirituality and Sufism. So that we all are able to awaken our lost spiritual senses of the heart and soul, and once again we are unified and we only recognise love and we all become wise.

We will all become wise when the wisdom is restored in our hearts.

Wisdom is not obtained by reading books, whether the book has been written by a man of God. Wisdom is only acquired when the heart becomes the domicile of God. When the heart is connected with God through Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Prophet Mohammad, anyone. The heart must be connected to God. Only then your heart will become a Shrine of Holy Wisdom. 

Man and woman, they are nothing but houses of God. We are houses of God, but we need to house God. You’re a house of God but when God enters your heart it will become God’s home. A building, a room or a house without people is a house, but when you live there it becomes home. When God is in your heart you become home to God. And this is what we need today, rather than discriminating and hating each other. We need to revive our God gifted potential with which we can find God again, become Holy again. Each one of you has this potential that you can house God in you. You can turn your heart into the Divine Temple.

 When God is in your heart, God will not fall asleep in your heart, he will become very active, and how does God become active when God is inside you? God will take control of your hands with which you will make use of your hands. God will take control of your eyes and then God will peep through your eyes, he will look at people, but it is God who is looking at people through your eyes. God will take control of your tongue, on occasions the time will come when you will speak but the words will not be from you, the words will come from God. You will become a mouthpiece of God. And the time will come with the help of spirituality where God will take control of your inner and outer, and you will become a complete embodiment of God on earth. That is the type of knowledge we profess and share to you.

Question: How do we identify the right timing for spiritual action, if our heart is guiding us for planetary liberation for the integration of star knowledge, for the timing was not correct at some point, it was to accelerate, to fast. The timing of a supernova on earth of light?

Actually all the souls in our bodies and this universe, this cosmos that we are living in, our planet Earth and then out neighbouring planets. All these planets, all these galaxies, milky ways they all come under cosmos number one. And then we have yet another universe and then yet another universe. We have 7 universes. Most probably the timing that you are seeking to know is to do with this particular universe that we are present right now with our bodies, that will come right when the soul responsible for reaching out to different planets of this universe, becomes spiritually available.

 And that is our Lower Self. We need to purify our Lower Self when the Lower Self is purified. After the purification of the Lower Self, it needs coordination with our minds, eyes and with our intellect. When it is well coordinated with all five senses, then you will have the right time. This is when the timing becomes perfect. When the Lower Self is purified and it is coordinated with all other senses.

Question: There is a driving force when inviting spirits to reveal the secrets of magnetism, light, frequency and geology and crystal energies. And the driving force inside of us becomes a challenge at points, through knowing when to unfold those secrets as action, as technology, as solutions. Where there is great opposition to it. But I see that some things have changed now?

In crystals, in all other objects. All these crystals, you have more energy in your body, in your bones, than the crystals. But in order to have that driving energy, that driving force, we need to enlighten these souls in our bodies. In order to obtain expertise and mastery, over crystals and all other objects and the driving force, which of course is moving all these energies around. We need to enlighten our Mineral Soul, which holds life in stones, mountains, crystals and all these things. And then the Botanical Soul which holds life in trees. And Animal Souls, which holds life in all the animals. We also have all these three souls. When we have the expertise of all these three souls, then you are in the driving seat and you have expertise and mastery over the driving force of the world.

The Spiritual Sciences – Leaders in Action for Global Transformation

The Spiritual Sciences – Leaders in Action for Global Transformation

The following is the transcript of Sufi Spiritual Revivalist Younus AlGohar’s speech at the NUWTC’s ‘Leaders in Action for Global Transformation’ symposium in Phoenix Arizona.

I’m here to share my thoughts, my energies, and some divine spiritual philosophies from the East. There are spiritual philosophies from the West and then we have our own brand of spirituality which may be slightly different, but we can benefit from both. Today I will be sharing with you the spiritual sciences with the help of which we may be able to awaken our spiritual subtleties in the body.  

We believe there are seven different souls inside our body.

For a long time, as a student, I used to think there is only one soul in the body. One day, I met with a boy who was not able to speak; his parents took him everywhere [to get cured] but his power of speech was never restored. Then we went to see a Spiritual Master.

The Spiritual Master said, ‘The soul which is responsible for sustaining the power of the speech in the body is defective.’ 

Then I came to know that there are more souls in the body that just one.  

In the East, there are a lot of people who exemplify Sufism. They have their own ways and culture; most of the time, spirituality is mixed with the culture. That is why it becomes difficult for everybody to embrace it. For example, in India, we have a different brand of spirituality. Gandhi used to be known as a ‘half-naked fakir’ because this was his spiritual attire. Then we have Hindu spirituality and Muslim spirituality. 

The majority of people who are interested in spirituality in the West are aware of Rumi. He always spoke about love and the beloved and how to live your life with all the blossoms of love and harmony. 

When I met my Spiritual Master, he made a cocktail. He took bits and pieces from all different cultures and came out with a brand new spirituality. This was so everybody is able to embrace it and reap the spiritual benefits and grace out of it. 

Religions Have Lost Their Glory

A lot of people today have become wary of religion, God and Jesus. I understand this is not because they have any grudge or personal vendetta against God or Jesus Christ. This is a pretty natural phenomenon. [This happens when] you practise religion for many, many years, and you do not get anything from that practice. Rather, you feel like you have been caged with different philosophies and you find very little space to manoeuvre your own life. You are told that the things you want to do to enjoy your life are sins and that you cannot do it. 

On the one hand, people are not getting anything out of the practice of the religion, so they become non-recipients of any spiritual grace that may be rendered by the practice of that religion. On the other hand, they are caged by different laws – societal and religious laws – [telling them] ‘you cannot do this, you cannot do that’. They become wary of this concept of sin.

People call upon God when they need help and God doesn’t reply. Then one day they lose hope. We call upon Jesus to help and Jesus doesn’t help, so we lose hope. When religions do not do anything good to improve the quality of our life, we become wary of these religions. And sometimes religions become monsters. 

The ideology of religion can be adulterated in a way that it becomes a monster. 

Sometimes religions have a very limited perimeter for us to manoeuvre. Sometimes, we see that religions are creating divisions and problems rather than assessing our spiritual needs and necessities. Bearing all this in mind, we tell ourselves, ‘I am better off without religion.’ This has been a trend for the past 100 years now. 

People in the West have shunned the practice of religion, but where I come from in the East, people have a blindfold. They don’t get anything out of the practice of their religion but still, they are clung to that practice.

Some of them are given radicalised views. They are told, ‘Do you want to go to paradise? Wear a jacket full of bombs, blow up somewhere and let 100-200 people blow up with you. This will be a gateway for you to enter paradise and 72 virgin damsels are waiting for you.’

This is terrorism. But terrorism is just a branch of a monstrous religion when the religion loses its glory, meaning, spiritual power and regime. When spirituality is missing from religion, then that religion becomes a monster. 

When we call upon Jesus and Jesus doesn’t attend to our call [multiple times], we will have a very bad and negative conjecture about Jesus. We will think, ‘Jesus is just a character from mythology because when we need him, he doesn’t reply, he doesn’t help.’

In order to know the truth, you have to adopt spirituality. We heard it on the grapevine that there is somebody and he lives somewhere above the skies. We heard about it, but seeing is believing.

When we go to the mosques, churches and synagogues, we are told to believe in what we cannot see and sustain that belief. Sustaining that belief is known as faith. Even if he doesn’t ever help you, we have to have faith. Now this slogan is fading away. We are living in the 21st century.

We have all the luxuries and comforts of life – we can make it rain, we can reach Mars, we have been to the Moon, we can fiddle with human genes, we can know in advance what diseases a baby will have by studying the gene – we are so advanced so do we need God now? Do we need Jesus? If we need Jesus, why do we need him? Is he going to buy us a mobile phone or improve the quality of our internet?

We cannot deny the existence of God. The proof is our own self. Somebody must have created us. Our existence cannot be a coincidence.

The problem is the messengers and the great spiritual masters who would teach us how to spiritualise our life, how to enlighten and awaken our souls and then find the spiritual proximity with God – those masters are here no more. What we have are just orators who tell us stories, ‘When Jesus came this happened, when Prophet Muhammad came that happened.’ 

We talk about the miracles – things which our intellect cannot even perceive. We keep reading these far fetched stories. We are bemused by the study of the miracles which took place in remote history. 

But this is what it is. This is the story is every religion. If you go to a church, they will tell you stories of Christian saints, Lord Jesus Christ and Mother Mary – but why don’t we see those miracles working today in our age? We have stories from the era of Moses in which God would send food from above the skies. We have stories on the era of Abraham and Adam. But we do not see these things anymore. This is why we do not relate to Lord Jesus Christ. This is why we do not relate to the miracles worked by Jesus in history – because we do not see them today. 

When you go to church, you [will be] just thinking about God but you are told that you are speaking with God. So many different things have been added to the academic side of religion which never existed. Everything has been glamorised.

Often times we talk about meditation, well the very word ‘meditate’ means ‘to think deeply’. Do we have to learn how to meditate? We already know how to think deeply.

True meditation is a transcendental spiritual journey. This happens when the souls are enlightened, energised and have been localised with divinity.

As a Muslim, I was told, ‘On the Night of the Ascension, Prophet Mohammad physically flew from his bed. He went to Jerusalem and he went up to the sky. Physically, he went to see God.’

It’s difficult isn’t it, to relate to all this? Because we have never seen such things happen in front of our eyes. Our intellect only accepts things that we can see and experience. What we cannot see or experience doesn’t really fit in our head. 

We say, ‘Yes, okay. I must believe because this is my religion, so it must have happened.’ 

But we cannot relate to such things. All these different beautiful people, like Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, they all went. And we are just living in the wilderness of ignorance. 

Today I have come here to tell you that we have found the truth. What Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus said was right. What Jesus did was right and what Mohammad said was right. 

We do not know the right knowledge and we do not know the whereabouts of divinity – this is why we are left in a lurch. We have no clue how to love God. 

The Heart is the Place of Love

And love is the most misinterpreted and misunderstood word. You will meet a man one day, fall in love and after some time, you will find out that he was sleeping around. So, where is the love? That’s not loving, is it? We have assumed that if we take care of somebody, we actually love them. But what about nursing homes where nurses take care of the elderly people and get paid for that care? That’s not loving.

It’s funny. We always enjoy it when we hate somebody – but we don’t get to enjoy it when we love somebody. We have to sacrifice a lot in order to keep that love alive. You have to admit: love always demands a lot of sacrifices. How much will you sacrifice in the name of love? There is a limit. One day, finally when you see that you are left with nothing, you let go of this [so-called] love.

Love is a substance. Love is divine. The place of love is the Spiritual Heart.

My mobile phone doesn’t work without power and connection. In a similar way, this Spiritual Heart has very profound potential. When it is revived, awakened, spiritualised and energised, this will work with divine energy. When it is energised with divine energy, it starts to show off its spiritual functionality. This heart works like a mirror. 

Rumi said, ‘If you polish your heart, which is like a mirror, then anyone who comes in front of your heart will reflect in your heart.’ 

And my Master [HDE Gohar Shahi] said, ‘When the heart is awakened and enlightened, this will be our tool of communication with God, with Jesus.’

I didn’t believe it until I found it. 

I’m not a very religious man. I used to play cricket in college (I still do), but then one day I was totally fed up with religions. I was a very religious boy; because at a very young age, my father used to tell me, ‘You have to go to the mosque every day, five times a day, or you will go to hell.’ 

So, as a child, I had this fear instilled in my heart that I must go the mosque five times a day or else I would go to hell.

Then one day, when I went to the mosque, the Muslim priest was telling us a story of Prophet Muhammad. 

He said that Prophet Mohammad said, ‘If you take a shower five times a day, will there be any dirt on your body? No. So going to the mosque five times a day is very similar to taking a shower five times a day. When you go to the mosque five times a day, there will be no sin on you. There will be no dirt on your heart.’

I did it for years and years but I still found there was dirt in me, I still had my crooked ways. I felt I was still bad inside my heart. I felt I still wanted to deprive others of their possessions if I didn’t have them. That was really alarming. I was asking myself the question, ‘Was what I was told really right?’

These practices of religion appear to be so important and essential but without spirituality, no religion will work any good on any of you or me. Because spirituality is the soul of religion. 

Spirituality is greater than any religion. If you have adopted spirituality, then you do not need any religion.

Celestial Spirituality 

Spirituality is all about enlightening and awakening souls. Some people in the East said that yoga was a spiritual practice and I was really confused. 

I asked my Master, ‘Is yoga a spiritual practice?’

My Master said, ‘Why do you ask?’

I said, ‘Because I don’t see any soul getting involved in the practice of yoga. We are just stretching our body – are we stretching our souls as well?’ 

And my Master said ‘No, no. Yoga is good for the body and mind, but the enlightenment of the soul is a different ball game.’ 

I said, ‘What is spirituality then?’ 

I did a masters degree in Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry, so I was very argumentative at times. I used to think the function of the soul is to sustain life in the body, that’s all. 

But my Master told me, ‘No, no, no. There are two different sets of souls: celestial souls and terrestrial souls. We share terrestrial souls with animals and all other different kinds of creatures, like stones, trees and animals.’

We share the same types of souls with all these living objects. The stone and mountains have the mineral soul. The trees have the mineral soul plus botanical soul. The animals have [the mineral and botanical soul as well as] the animal spirit. 

If we only have the same amount of souls as animals do, then why do we have intellect? Why do we speak and animals do not speak? We have some different souls in human beings because if we [only] have the same souls that animals, trees and stones do, then why don’t they speak or have the [same level of intellect as us]? Well, there is always room for argument. You can say ‘They are intelligent,’ but no animal was a scientist.

We have something superior given to us by God in comparison to what has been given to the animals. The additional thing we have in us as human beings is a set of celestial souls. When it comes to sustaining life in the body, we have similar amounts of souls that the animals do: the botanical spirit, mineral spirit and animal spirit. We have all these souls too in our body. These three terrestrial spirits are responsible for the growth and for sustaining life in our body. 

But the set of celestial souls that have only been given to human beings – their function is different.

It was so fascinating when Jesus said, ‘God created man in his own image.’

Ever since I read this I thought, ‘I am like God because God created man in his own image. If I have fingers, God must have fingers. If God didn’t have fingers, I wouldn’t have them. God must walk the same way that we walk because God created man in his own image.’

That was really fascinating. I said to my Master, ‘[If] God created man in his own image, then why do we need any religion? We are God’s image already.’ 

Then my Master said, ‘God created you and everybody else in his own image, but you need his character now.’

We don’t behave like God. What was missing is God’s character. God is oftentimes forgiving. God is love. God is full of compassion and empathy. 

A lot of people are losing their grip on empathy, sympathy and compassion these days. This is not because they have shunned the practice of the religion; this is because the divine characteristics in us are diminishing day by day because we have stopped the practice of spirituality. 

In order to behave and live like God, God has given us a set of celestial souls: five in our breast and one lies in our head (the Third Eye). When the [soul in the head] is awakened and enlightened, then we are able to see God. We are able to see Jesus, Abraham and Moses – all these great personalities were the wonderful teachers of spirituality.

When I met my Master, I was exposed to naked spirituality in which your heart and all the spirits are awakened and enlightened, and with them, you make spiritual journeys. You think about making a spiritual journey and they come out of your body. You will be sitting in your chair and they come out of your body. They look like you and they take the shape of your body. 

One day Rumi went to the mosque and he was praying. His Master came and said, ‘You are praying alone. Where is all of you gone?’

Rumi said, ‘What? Where is all of me gone?’

‘You are not just one, you are many.’ 

He was really intrigued by this knowledge. ‘What? Am I many? I just know myself.’

When he was exposed to the spiritual sciences, he was told that there are seven souls inside his body and yet another nine different souls are given birth by these seven souls [to make a total of] sixteen. With spiritual nourishment and spiritual practice, all these souls – one after the other – develop this ability to come out and make journeys.

Then one day, Rumi went to the mosque again after 15-20 years and he was in the prayer. His Master came and he said, ‘Now you are many.’ 

He said, ‘how?’ and he saw that there were 16 men like him standing behind him. 

If one of your souls was nurtured and fully grown when you were 20 – and it came out – then that soul will stay, forever, 20. 

So, you have these souls in you. Then when you have attained this spiritual status, then you think about God, ‘Where is God?’

Then one of the souls will leave your body. You will be sitting in your chair or in meditation and one of the souls will leave your body and see God. These souls will reach God and access God. These souls will access Jesus. These souls will change our lives and our lifestyle.

Acknowledging the Divine Presence – Lama Foundation

Acknowledging the Divine Presence – Lama Foundation

Acknowledging the Divine Presence – Lama Foundation

I’m very happy spiritually to see all of you turning your faces away from the luxuries of the world and living here in a spiritual retreat. Obviously, that endorses the fact that you are in search for the divine. This effort you are making of shunning the world, turning away from the desires of the world and making this remote area as your abode, is something which can only be a gift from God to you. Not many people who seek the path are able to do what you are doing. 

When we live in luxury and comfort, we become accustomed to it. It is very hard to then take your hands off that luxury and comfort.

We are Sufis. My Master Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi was here in 1997, 22 years ago. In the same hall, sitting in the middle on the armchair, supervising the Sufi Zikar. This is what brought me back here – to share my Sufi thoughts with brothers and sisters like you here. 

I was always inspired by Murshid Sam Lewis who said, ‘The Sun will rise from the West.’

It is remarkable to see how people in the United States of America are turning away from the luxurious and glamorous lifestyle and living here. This is an absolutely impeccable Sufi practice and it is wonderful to see how dedicated you are. What you are doing today – living away from the charms of the world and negating yourself – that is the first lesson in spirituality. 

In the Sufi path, the most important things are purgation and purification of the Lower Self (Nafs) – which is the root of all evil – and at the same time, Activation of the Spiritual Heart. It is the Spiritual Heart which actually lets us connect with God. With the Activation of the Spiritual Heart, we are able to communicate with God and receive messages from God. The first step towards the spiritual journey is the awakening of the Spiritual Heart. This is the threshold of sainthood. 

When I say, ‘The heart must be awakened,’ it means the spiritual functions of the heart must be restored. The spiritual consciousness of the heart has to be obtained. That, of course, comes with the help and teachings of the Spiritual Guide. A Spiritual Guide is delegated by God to implant the seed of love in the hearts and souls.

Rumi said, ‘Your heart is like a mirror, you just need to polish your heart. When your heart is polished, anyone that comes in front of it will reflect in it.’ 

So finding God has been made really easy by our great Sufis. [We have to] polish our hearts and bring an eternal shine upon the screen of the heart. When the heart is perfectly polished, then the divine manifestation takes place. 

The heart is always covered with a lot of layers of heedlessness, worldly desires, lust and many other things. When you are courageous enough to part with the comfort of the luxury, you’re already half a saint. 

This is why Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Cleanliness is half of the faith.’

When the body is dirty, we wash it with water and apply soap. When the hearts are dirty, that dirt is of heedlessness, desires and comforts [of the world]. 

I would like to salute the determination of the individuals who are already living like hermits. They’re really courageous people. Once you become accustomed to the luxuries and comforts of the world, it’s a trap. It’s not easy to come out from the customary luxury and comfort. 

Half of the job is already done when you are living in such remote places.

Now what you need is to learn to polish the heart. When the heart is polished, you don’t need to find God. With a polished heart, wherever God is, he will show up in the mirror of your heart. In order to polish the heart, what we need is eternal remembrance of God which is conducted by the heart itself.

According to the Koran 13:28, ‘You will find content in Zikar Allah (in the remembrance of God)’. 

Those who are not Sufis often misunderstand this verse from the Koran and they carry out the Zikar (invocation0 with their tongue. It is to do with the heart. 

The Sufi path starts with the Activation of the Heart.

Mevlana Rumi said, ‘If the heart is polished and Zikar Allah is established therein, then your heart is like the house of God (Bait ul Rab). Your heart is the Divine Empyrean.’

To bring God in the heart is very important in spirituality.

Most people think that bringing God in the heart is just a metaphor. How will God come in the heart? We don’t know where God is. Well, we don’t know where God is, but Murshid Sam Lewis knows where he is. My Spiritual Guide, HDE Gohar Shahi, knows where he is. 

They tell us, ‘Before we are able to bring God in our hearts, we need God’s permission – whether or not God likes us. Whether or not we are worthy of his friendship. Whether or not we are worthy of his love.’

It is the Spiritual Guide who communicates with God, presents his disciple and asks God if he wishes to love this disciple. 

God’s name that we say with our tongue is just a word. But when it is granted by God himself, through a Spiritual Guide, then that word has divine energy, light and a spirit. That name of God can talk and walk. It is then implanted in the throbs of the heart and then the divine chemistry starts to work. Articulation of the name of God starts with the synchronisation of the name in the beating system of the heart. 

When it is implanted, you have your heart remembering God nonstop – whether you are sleeping, talking to somebody else [or] engaged in any other activity. Even if you are not thinking about God or making any effort to remember him – when the word God, Ram, Allah [or] Bhagwan is implanted in the heart, the heart learns to say the name of the God. Ram, Bhagwan, Elohim, Yahweh are all beautiful names of God. Some people are more prone to word Allah; others want to say Yahweh and the others want to say Elohim. Whichever name of God you have in your language and in your religion, it doesn’t really matter. 

What matters is that the name of God must enter the heart because the heart is the place of love. Love is not a verbal claim.

You people – such wonderful, beautiful people you are. You have left behind all the luxuries. This is a practical example that you have that spark of divine love in your heart. You have that spark. All you need to do is to kindle and give rise to the flame of love inside the heart. 

In no time, you will recognise the presence of God within yourself. Nothing is outside of yourself. 

God said, ‘I am within you, but you do not know how to see me’. 

So we need to learn to acknowledge God’s presence. We need to learn to have this ability with which we can spot the presence of God. All Sufis may be sitting quietly and people think they are saying nothing – but their heart is engaged in the remembrance of God. When the heart is activated and it is engaged in the eternal remembrance of God, then we turn to the soul and we activate the soul as well.

There are seven souls inside our body. Each of them must be awakened and activated with the name of God. There are so many names of God. According to the Koran, there are 99 names of God. Then we have different names in the Bible, Torah and Psalms of David. 

All names which we use to call upon God are worthy of great respect. However, in order to obtain the spiritual grace of the remembrance of God, we want to make sure that Zikar enters the heart.

If you try to eat food but your lips are sealed off, do you think the hunger will go away? No. If you put the food in your nose, your eyes and your ears, you will still be hungry because the food must go through your mouth to enter your stomach. If the food doesn’t enter the stomach, it is not going to benefit you. In a similar way, the remembrance of God must enter the heart. Only then will it show it’s exuberance, magnificence and it’s a manifestation.

Today we are very happy to tell you that we have been delegated to share the method of implanting the name of God in your heart. It is so romantic! You will just be sitting but your heart will be repeating ‘Allah’. Even when you are not thinking about him, your heart will be pounding his name. 

This practice, in which your heart engages in eternal remembrance of God – there is a purpose for it. It’s not just a form of worship.

There’s a reason we eat. Some people eat because they want to enjoy their food, others eat so that they can stay alive and continue their spiritual journey. If we do not eat, we cannot survive. 

Similarly, this eternal remembrance of God is divine food to your heart and soul. When this eternal remembrance takes place in the heart and God’s name is synchronised; the heartbeats repeat the word ‘God’ one after another which generates divine light. That divine light is food to our heart and soul. 

Then starts the process of spiritual progression. We eat food physically so that our body is well. But for the heart and for the souls, we also need food. They are ethereal beings, their food is divine light.

All of us have energy in us and we benefit from each other’s energy, but divine light is different. Divine light is something that our heart and soul will live on. Our heart and soul will be nurtured with divine light. That divine light will come from the remembrance of God when it is conducted in the heart. 

There is a lot to say about Sufism and a lot to discuss spirituality. But the most important thing in a Sufi’s life is that his/her souls are energised and spiritualised in a way that, even if you are sleeping, your real you are awake. 

Sultan Haq Bahu said, ‘Some people are awake and they are engaged in worship but in the eyes of God, they are sleeping’. 

Although they appear to be awake and are engaged in worship, in the eyes of God they are heedless. 

Why? Because it is not your body that God looks at, it is your heart that God looks at. But your heart is not engaged in God’s remembrance, only your body is. Some peoples’ hearts are engaged in God’s remembrance and they are sleeping – but in the eyes of God, they are awake because their hearts are awake.

This is the threshold of a Sufi, that he or she is able to engage in God’s remembrance in such a way that he or she doesn’t have to make any physical efforts. Even if you make physical efforts, what will happen when you fall asleep? 

Sultan Haq Bahu said, ‘A lover is never heedless of the beloved.’

When we fall asleep,  we are heedless of everything, even ourselves. So, a Sufi is a true lover because when a Sufi’s body sleeps, his or her souls do not sleep. They are still engaged in the remembrance of God. A Sufi’s heart becomes the true recipient of the divine messages.

There are many Sufi orders in this world: Naqshbandi Sufi order, Sahaurwardi Sufi order, Chishti, Qadri etc. They have different names, but the principles and teachings of each and every Sufi order is the same: Activation of the Heart. 

With this message and gift of God, we are here to serve you. We believe you are our brothers and our sisters in love and on the Sufi path. We are here to unify with you in love, peace and to commemorate the Sufi path given to the people in the West.

The Living Jesus – Mt. Shasta Day 2

The Living Jesus – Mt. Shasta Day 2

The Living Jesus – Mt. Shasta Day 2

The following is an excerpt from Sufi Younus AlGohar’s talk and Questions and Answers session with the audience at the Mount Shasta Heart Activation Event.

Is Jesus Christ a Metaphor?

In this world today the most educated people turn out to have a conspiracy theory behind every occurrence. Behind 9/11, behind 7/7 London and behind Jesus Christ. As a man who believes in God, you believe in God even when you haven’t seen God. That is faith, so, Jesus Christ is not a metaphor.

Jesus Christ is a reality and the endorsement on this reality is that Jesus Christ was initially God’s Word.

The Word was with God and then he was decorated with flesh and bones but that flesh and bone is not Jesus Christ’s reality. Flesh and bones are our reality so that we can relate to Jesus Christ. 

That is the only singular purpose Jesus Christ came into this world in flesh and bones. Flesh and bones are our reality and we only understand realities that we can relate to. Jesus Christ is not a metaphor. 

The problem with us and our intellect is that our intellect will only reflect things that we have seen. What we have not seen, no matter how hard our intellect juggles with it, we’ll never trace a clue [to it]. In the end, it all comes down to having a very strong faith. When I say have faith, it doesn’t mean you put a blindfold on and blindly believe in everything which is presented to you. 

Faith is an abstract feeling. You will feel Jesus Christ’s presence in your heart – you won’t see him – and that feeling in you will compel you to have faith in him. The feeling of his love, the warmth of his love, his spiritual association, his presence in your heart and his reflection in your characteristics will establish the truth to you at least.

Even though the presence of Jesus Christ is abstract, I can see him through my feelings. Through my very profound, very deep spiritual sense.

So I would like to rule out the possibility of Jesus Christ as a metaphor. He is a very concrete reality.

 

The Living Jesus Christ

If Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Jesus Christ must have the divine attributes of the Father. The Father is eternal and the Father has no death. The Father has been there forever and he will be there forever. 

It doesn’t make sense to a common mind that a father is eternal and the son is not eternal.

What happened on the cross happened to something which was just a figure that looked like Jesus Christ. You can call it a lookalike Jesus Christ. It was the entity that came out from the Lower Self (Nafs). 

Because of the presence of the Lower Self, you are drawn and prawn to the luxuries and contents of the world. Upon spiritual activation of that particular soul in your body – the Lower Self – it gives birth to four individuals and they look like you. This is the established truth according to Sufism and also according to Kabbalah, which is Jewish Spirituality. 

On that day, what transpired was, one of the spiritual entities of the Lower Self of Jesus Christ was put on the cross. Jesus Christ himself, physically and spiritually, was not on the cross. The blood that was dripping through his nails, palms and feet – and was dripping into the Holy Grail – was not coming out from the body of Jesus Christ. It was coming out from a lookalike of Jesus Christ which was a spiritual entity of his Lower Self.

According to the Bible (Romans 6:23), ‘For the wages of sin is death.’

We all understand that, but Jesus Christ is not a sinner. You can say he died for our sins, but God doesn’t have to die for our sins; he can simply forgive us. 

Jesus Christ used to make pigeons out of the sand; he would blow upon them and they would fly. So it is an established truth that Jesus Christ gave life to those that were non-existent. 

So the one that gives life to others cannot lose his own life. It is impossible for Jesus Christ to taste death.

Jesus Christ is divine. What happened there [on the cross] was a test for the believers as to whether or not they believed in the true and esoteric personality of Jesus Christ. I firmly believe that Jesus Christ is omnipresent. I firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the light of the heaven of the world. I firmly believe that if you find the right spiritual way, you can still connect to Jesus Christ and become united with the reality of Jesus Christ; through Jesus Christ, ultimately, you will find the Father, God. 

 

The Spiritual Cross

I would like to translate, ‘Take up my cross and follow me.’ (Matthew 16:24-26, Luke 9:23)

We have seven souls in our body. When you are following a spiritual path and you are enlightening and awakening your souls, all these souls in the breast make a straight horizontal line with the light of God. 

In a similar way, from the soul in the head to the one on the navel point (the Lower Self), a straight vertical line is drawn with the light of God. This is how a cross is established with the divine light in your body. You will only follow Jesus Christ when you make a cross in the body with all these souls. 

When Jesus Christ said, ‘Take up my cross and follow me,’ he referred to this cross which is inside your body – not the cross made of wood where people are put to punishment.

When all of the souls are activated, they make a holy cross; this is the cross that you need to follow. The cross is not outside; the cross is within you but you have to find the right spiritual coordination between all these souls. This is how a spiritual cross is formed inside you. That is the cross that Jesus Christ wants you to follow.

Liberating Your Inner Person – Mt Shasta Day 1

Liberating Your Inner Person – Mt Shasta Day 1

Liberating Your Inner Person – Mt Shasta Day 1

In the world we are living in, people have different goals. Initially, I used to think love is befitting to all but after 20 years of travelling around the world and meeting different people, I have come to know that love is not befitting to everybody. 

There are loving souls and only the loving souls will embrace love. Then, there are those whose aims in this life are to obtain power, wealth and rule the world. Whoever they are, whatever religion they practise, they are the ones who currently are controlling our lives. 

This is a world of reasoning. This world is not eternal. It will perish one day.

The knowledge that I am talking about is divine knowledge, it differs to individuals. With the help of the Activation of the Heart, the only wealth you would obtain is the divine wealth. You may obtain a reflection of God in you. This knowledge of the Heart Activation will not let you have control of the world or give you any monetary benefits. This is purely spiritual.

It is all about your aims and target. There are people who want to control the lives of others. There are only a few who are powerful and control everything – but do they represent God? Is the power that they have eternal? If they control the world, are they going to leave any pleasant impact on the lives of people? No.

Jesus and Moses are still remembered in people’s hearts with respect and they did not control people’s lives. For example, Moses was a liberator. He liberated people and gave them freedom. There are people who think that if they have power, they are God – but that is very temporal. 

The peace of the heart is not in controlling people’s lives. It is in controlling our untamed desires.

When divine love enters the heart, you will love yourself and the entire world. The satisfaction, bliss and ecstasy that you will find in love – you will not find it in power, money, strength or controlling the lives of people.

Question: How do we become sincere with ourselves? How do we deal with enemies before and after the heart is activated?

People who are naive to spirituality often get confused about how the heart is activated and what actually happens to the heart when it’s activated. They want to know the substance and what change is brought to the heart. They want to know what it is in the heart which isn’t already activated. These are very common questions.

Then, when we tell them about the spiritual functions of the heart, they become very confused and tell themselves, ‘The heart is a lump of flesh and its function is no more than pumping the blood flow of the body. The most it will do is oxygenate the blood, that’s it. But when a Sufi speaks about the heart he speaks so highly of it.’

Spirituality explains that this physical heart itself can not do anything, but there is a spirit which is sitting on the heart. That spirit is dormant; it’s in a sleeping mode – it’s inactive. That spirit needs to be introduced to spiritual consciousness. It needs to be revived. When that spirit is revived, it is revived with the name of God. 

In the actual, factual world, the name of God, when pronounced by the mouth, is nothing. But when it is granted by God through a Spiritual Master, that word has a soul inside it. It has energy.

Do not forget, initially, Jesus Christ said that he was ‘the Word’ and ‘The Word was with God.’ (John 1:1) Then, ‘The Word became flesh.’ (John 1:14) So this is the same type of ‘Word’ we are talking about. 

When this word – God, Allah, Elohim, Dios, etc. –  is granted by Spiritual Guide, it carries a small soul with it which is given to the spirit that sits on the heart. With the light of that name, that spirit is revived. Thereafter, that spirit is synchronised in the throbbing system of the heart. With each throb of the heart, it repeats God’s name.

Why is God’s name practised inside the beating system of the heart? Because this is how the divine energy is produced. When two stones are rubbed together, it produces a spark. In a similar way, when God’s name is repeated in this fashion, it creates divine energy. So, we become a source of energy by ourselves. It is like a generator. Many Sufi’s used God’s name as crude oil for this generator. So, God’s name is like oil to a generator. If you want electricity because you don’t have a connection, you would use a generator but in order to run the generator, you would need oil.

Similarly, this heart is like a generator and it needs crude oil. That crude oil can be God’s name, the name of Jesus Christ, Moses, Abraham or Mohammad – any name which has come from God. That name is then implanted in the beating system of the heart and it keeps generating divine energy. Our heart is constantly supplied with this divine energy. In three years’ time, this spirit is completely nurtured and it will take after your shape and that is the ‘spiritual you’. 

In three years time, when it’s completely grown up and takes your shape, it becomes able to come out of your body. When it is able to come out of your body, that’s when you are able to establish a transcendental meditation. You sit with your legs crossed and then, you want to perform transcendental meditation. That spirit, which after three years has grown up and looks like you, can leave your body. Then it will ascend and reach its respective realm. 

This is just one example. There seven souls in your body.

According to Kabbalah, the heart will reach the Realm of Angels (Alam-e-Malakout). Then we have the Main Soul which is your reality. It comes from The Realm of Souls (Alam-e-Jabarout).

The transcendental meditation will only take place when all these souls are nurtured, grown up and have taken your shape. They will look like you when they are grown up and appear in your dreams. When you become a Spiritual Master, these souls will come and then guide you. When you need [your Spiritual Guide], you call upon him and he will come and help you – not his body but his souls.

I’ll tell you a story of Great Saint Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. One day, 800-900 years ago, many of his disciples invited him to dinner. His disciples were really confused because every time somebody would come and tell him, ‘You are invited to my house,’ he would say, ‘Yes I will come.’ and people said, ‘How many places would you go at the same time?’ but he kept on smiling.

He went to 17 different places at a time but physically, he stayed at home. His wife asked him, ‘You’re not going to all these places? You promised the people.’ and he said, ‘No, forget it.’ 

But he went to the homes of everybody he promised to visit; he sat with them, ate with them, etc. The question is: who was he? The body was at home while all these souls that he was able to nurture came out of the body and went [in his place].

You and I also have this ability in ourselves. You and I can also attain these spiritual levels. It’s not just about consciousness. 

Consciousness is a very elementary level in spirituality.

After consciousness, you need strength, power and ability to make spiritual journeys. All these messengers were gifted with this knowledge. Adam was the first one; God gave him the knowledge of the heart. When Abraham came, subsequent to the knowledge of the heart, Abraham aided to the knowledge of the soul as well. This is why we say in spirituality, ‘The place of Abraham is in the Realm of Souls.’ He was given the practical knowledge of activation of the soul.

Then came Moses. He was equipped with the knowledge of three different souls: the heart, the soul and Siri (The Secret One). Then came Jesus. He was given the knowledge of the four souls. Then came Prophet Mohammed and the knowledge of five different souls came to culmination. Five dimensions of spirituality. 

The [Abrahamic] religions are interlinked with each other. For example, Muslims must believe in all these prophets. If you are a Muslim and you say, ‘I don’t believe in Jesus.’ God will kick you out from Islam. You have to believe in all the Celestial Books, respect all and love all. What we see in the form of Islam today is not Islam. It is something else, it is a monster. Islam is a beautiful religion that taught people how to speak with God, how to respect Jesus, Moses, Adam, etc. 

It is a sad story that those who truly represented religions are no more among us and we are left with corruptions in the religions. 

Now we have an opportunity through the divine methodology granted to us by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi – without needing religion, we can still reach God and find ourselves.

Spirituality Without Religion – Mt. Shasta Day 1

Spirituality Without Religion – Mt. Shasta Day 1

Spirituality Without Religion – Mt. Shasta Day 1

The following is an excerpt from Sufi Spiritual Revivalist Younus AlGohar’s speech addressing attendees on the first day of the Mount Shasta Heart Activation Event.

I feel very lucky to be around all these people who love to love, who are very humble and who are following the cosmic energy. In recent times, everything is messed up.

Everything is either adulterated, tampered with or modified. We are almost in the wilderness of forced ignorance upon us.

It is very heartbreaking to sometimes see people distancing themselves from God – from religions, from Moses, from Jesus. I do not blame them for it because those who have represented them were fake people. If a religion and its ideology are corrupted, the entire humanity has to suffer. 

When religion is corrupted, it turns into a monster.

Intolerance, hatred, supremacy, and this urge of being the best of all kills the fundamental purpose of religion. Unfortunately, in recent times, all three Abrahamic Faiths – Judaism, Christianity, Islam – have suffered at the hands of people who didn’t deserve to represent these religions.

Religion is like a human being; every religion has two dimensions: inner and outer. The more important aspect of human life is the inner dimension: your soul, your spirit. This body is like a container and these souls that we have are contained in this body whilst we are here in this world. 

This body is not our reality. Our reality is our soul. 

Religion must provide spiritual assistance to its followers, with the help of which they can establish a connection with God and regain consciousness. When the inner aspect in every religion was either rejected, overlooked, forgotten or it was made subject to corruption, the religions started malfunctioning and became monsters.

Terrorism, extremism, and fanaticism are the result of corruption in the religion.

No religion mandates the murder of a human; No religion will tell you to take the life of a human being in the name of God. I personally think that if God allows you to kill another fellow human being in God’s name, then most probably, I would stop believing in God. This is out of the divine character. 

Either the colour of [our] skin is brown, black, white or any other colour, we are the creature of the same divine, supreme entity. To him, we are all one. Nobody is greater than the other. Nobody is lower than the other. 

At least God doesn’t discriminate. If he does, we have to stop believing in God. But he doesn’t. 

Our destiny is God. God sent all these messengers, prophets and saints for your help, for my help. So they can teach us to connect with God. 

No prophet, messenger or saint is greater than God.

You and I are to connect ourselves with God and we need some assistance. This is the only purpose of a messenger, prophet or a saint sent by God; announced by God. 

All these religions that were established by different messengers and prophets have lost their glory. The messages of these religions have not been articulated and didn’t have proper representation. But today, every religion is bad. Why?

When we eat food and it is fresh, we enjoy it. For example, you made a lot of fresh food and ate some of it – but still have a portion left over – what would you want to do with it? You would want to preserve it so you put it in the fridge to eat tomorrow. This is what a refrigerator does to food. The fridge cannot keep the food fresh for too long. When the food goes stale, we throw it away because we don’t like it [anymore].

Similarly, the prophets and the early believers of any messenger were great because they received the divine connection directly from their messengers. After the messengers and prophets left the world, there were people were in contact with God. They worked as a refrigerator to keep the religion fresh. They were substitutes to prophets and messengers. 

Now when we have no prophet, messenger or saint of God, there are many who would want to claim that they are very close to God – but when it comes to practicality, the Sufi practice of a majority of Sufis today is based on bookish knowledge. They do not have this connection which God. This is why they are confined to their respective religions.

 A true Sufi represents God. He doesn’t represent a religion.

To God, all are equal whether you follow Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism or no religion at all. A Sufi is divinely equipped with spiritual instruments to connect people to God without requiring the religion. With a Sufi, you do not need a religion. You can directly get connected with God. Sufism is a direct contact with God.

There is a very small divine tunnel after the Opening of the Heart and that divine tunnel leads you and me to the destination: to the supreme power. 

With whatever name you call him – Elohim, Allah, God, Dios – it’s the same.

Somebody asked Mevlana Rumi a question, ‘What is God’s true name?’ and Rumi said, ‘It doesn’t matter.’

One of the people with him was from Iran, he spoke Persian. Another person was from Arabia and another was from the West. Rumi showed them water. In Persian they call it Aab. In Arabic, it’s called Maan. In Hindi, we call it Paani and in English water.

When you give the water to them, they will all get what they wanted.

Someone will call it Aab, someone will call it Maan, somebody else will call it Paani and I will call it water, but it’s the same substance. The same goes for God.

These religions are different highways. For example, if you want to go to LA you can get onto Route 5, or 395. Many highways lead to Los Angeles. That is the similitude of these religions. The religions should not make us fight and hate each other like, ‘He is jew or he is a Christian or he is a Muslim.’ 

I understand that in recent times people have given rise to hatred and discrimination but they are wrong. God wants to love all, whomever you are. When Jesus came he said, ‘I am the light of the world, I am the only way to God.’ Then Prophet Mohammed came and he said the same thing. So, now people were confused about whom to follow. Who was right?

They’re all right. In different times they said these things. At the time of Jesus, he was the only way to God, at the time of Abraham, he was the only to God, same for Adam but now we have different highways. Through Jesus, Mohammad, Moses, etc you can reach God.

The point is, do you have access to Jesus?

When people who represent Jesus do not have a connection with Jesus and tell you stories, you get fed up with the name Jesus. You have been hearing stories for the past 20 years about Jesus but nothing worked for you because people who are representing Jesus are fake; corrupted in the heart. They are making money, they don’t have a connection to Jesus or God.

Our message is the message of love and practical spirituality. We promote divine love.

There are two types of love: General type of love which is like a Hollywood movie type of love. You don’t need to learn anything, you just need to claim that you love someone. That is not loving, you are after their beauty, not love. 

Unfortunately, God today is not being represented in the Mosques, Churches and Synagogues. Humanity has been left alone, religions are null and void of spirituality. Mosques, Churches and Temples have turned into shopping malls. Again, humanity is on its own. We have to find our own way to enlighten ourselves, illumine our hearts, and purify our negativity. 

I’m not claiming to be a great Sufi master but I would like to share the same methodology with the help of which I obtained light in my heart. We’re not here gazing at your pockets [for money], we are not here to sell anything, but to share what we have. 

I’m not a spiritual mentor, but I can tell you how I got where I am now. Maybe, if you tread on the same path, you can get there. It’s not a matter of pride, it’s a matter of satisfaction. I have this passion in my heart that the spiritual path that I have been treading on, is a trustworthy spiritual path which has been through tests and trails. Thousands of people who have been treading on this spiritual path have acquired their spiritual quest.

If you follow this spiritual path, which is without any commitment, no religious pollution, no personal cult, no bondage, no discrimination. It doesn’t look at your complexion; your skin colour. It doesn’t look at your background because we understand the souls have the same colour, only our bodies differ in colour. I may be dark brown, you may be reddish-white but that’s only the colour of the skin but the soul was created by God, and it has only one colour, the colour of love. 

Let’s turn our souls into a pigeon and teach our souls to dive into the vast ocean of God’s love. Abraham, Moses, Adam, Jesus and Prophet Mohammad, they’re all true representations of God. Through the enormous amount of people reached God. But today, if these religions are malfunctioning and not producing results, it is not their fault. It is the people who are corrupted.

The corruption is of two types: corruption of mind and corruption of the heart. The corruption of heart most dangerous corruption. 

There is a Sufi saying, ‘Oh sons of Adam [meaning the entire humanity] there is a lump of flesh in your human body. If it’s reformed, your entire body will become reformed and if it is corrupted, the entire body will remain corrupted. Remember well, it is your heart. We need to revive spirituality in our hearts. The heart is like a satellite; like a telephone operator. 

The most important factor in spirituality is the activation of the heart. The heart is the divine gateway. When the heart is enlightened and activated, you will find yourself in the presence of God.

It’s like an iPhone. When the colour of the message is green, it means you’re paying for it. If the colour of the message is blue it means it’s free. Similarly, when the heart is activated, God becomes not only your friend but your guide, your mentor and you’ll receive messages directly from him. You’ll find him within you. 

When you are connected with God you no more behave like a human being. That’s how you recognise whether you are connected to God or not. If I am connected to God but in character, I behave like a devil, it’s easy to understand that I was telling you lies. 

If a bottle is hot, nobody should tell you that it’s hot. If you bring your hand closer to it you will feel the heat. Would you believe me if I said, ‘This is really cold.’ but when you bring your palm closer to it you do not feel the coolness, you feel the heat?

Similarly, you make mighty claims that you are a divine person but you have the characteristics of the devil. A devil wants division, a corrupted heart, hatred, killing, carnage, bomb blasts, terrorism and extremism. This is all evil! But it is all part of religions now, it is so sad. 

We need to work on different levels of consciousness, a consciousness that tells us how to recognise a true man and how to recognise the true representation of God. Before we are able to recognise God, we should be able to recognise ourselves. ‘One who has known himself, he has only known God.’ So, to know God we need to know ourselves. The reality of ourselves is buried deep down in our hearts.

All goodness will come after the heart is connected with god.

We do not need thick books. We do not need mighty Temples, Churches and Mosques. We need to turn our hearts into Temples. We need to turn our heart into the Bible, the Quran, the Torah. If these books are not inside the heart then outside these books are worthless. 

We need to activate the heart because the heart knows its true source. Our body doesn’t have any consciousness, the consciousness is granted to the body by the heart. When these spiritual faculties are dormant in our body, we do not know what to do, we are blind. Our ability to see each other is useless. We need the divine ability to see and hear God but that will only come about when the heart is activated.

Today I feel proud to tell you that to love and connect to God, you do not have to follow a religion. All you need to do is to activate your heart. If you have this knowledge and methodology, without religion, you can become divine. You can dig into your reality and you can find this supreme-self within you.

HDE Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love on Mexico

HDE Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love on Mexico

HDE Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love on Mexico

The following is a transcript of Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar’s speech during His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love in Mexico. This monumental event was attended by over 2000 locals who were inspired by the message of HDE Gohar Shahi. The speech was preceded by introductions in Spanish by Tatiana Iridia Vargas Arana, the President of Messiah Foundation International, and Hector Iglesias, a community leader. The Dastar-e-Fazilat (Turban of Honour) ceremony was also carried out under the auspicious supervision of Sufi Younus AlGohar. Following Syfi Younus AlGohar’s speech, there was a spiritual healing session. To end this beautiful occasion celebrating divine love and interfaith harmony, attendees and event organisers alike joined hands to participate in the dance of love.

Love is lovely, but it needs sacrifice. When you love somebody, difficult times, difficulties, problems in life try to stop you. And sometimes, you need to sacrifice. But about God’s love, before God gives you love, he wants us to remove negativity from our body. The element of hatred from our body.

If we don’t remove hatred and negativity from our body, our love for God is not perfect.

In the path of love, God’s name is like a soap. God’s name must go inside the soul to clean it. When the soul is purified, we have pure love of God. Our message is love and it is not about any religion.

Questions and Answers with the Audience

Q: When was the precise moment when you felt that you wanted to stand up, go into the world and spread your message?

I was in school, a student. And one day, with my friends, we went to a beach. So I was sitting at the beach and it was a wonderful, sunny afternoon. The Sun was right on top of my head. So I was looking at the Sun and I fainted. I felt so peaceful. Then, maybe after half an hour, I gained consciousness. I was sitting at the beach and I was looking at my hands as if I don’t know myself.

I was asking myself, ‘Who are you? And why are you here?’

In that moment, I felt that I am missing from me. I was thinking, ‘I am here, but where am I?’

Then I felt that the real me is missing. I was always quiet. Then one day, somebody introduced me to Lord Ra Riaz. And then I found that missing link: love.

So Lord Ra Riaz found me for me.

Then I realised there must be many people like me who are looking for love. So I spread love – it helps me and I feel happy. When I go around the world and tell people about love, my soul becomes happy. That is why I am here.

That was a very beautiful question.

Q: I feel a raised vibration here and I really appreciate you being here. And coincidentally, it is my birthday and I have received the best gift ever today, full of love.

Happy birthday to you! Love is the best manifestation of God. May the Lord increase you in love and peace. We are also very happy for you.

Q: Is there any difference between spirituality and the soul?

The soul needs spirituality to become strong. The soul is like our body and spirituality is like food. When the two are together, love is perfect.

Q: Welcome to Mexico! I hope you are very conscious that you are in a very, very important place in the entire country. In the place where it is believed that there were gods here, which is very important for all Mexicans. For the past maybe 60 years, our country has gone through violence and many innocents have died. When we talk about love, we have to be conscious of trying to turn down all the violence that we are going through. I feel very happy and thankful that I was invited to come. I would like to hear the message you have for all of us, all us Mexicans. Because we really do not want anymore violence in our country.

Thank you. In my country, England, there is very little pollution because the engines are green and no smoke comes out from the exhaust pipes of the cars. If the smoke is coming from the car, it is not good for our health. So in England, they are very strict about the worthiness of the car. The car should not release any smoke. So in order to have clean air, and less pollution, we need to fix our cars.

Human beings are same. When the heart is corrupt, when the heart has violence, then we have corruption, hatred and violence in the country. If we want to remove violence from our country, our people have to correct our hearts. Remove hatred, negativity from the heart.

There are many things that contribute to having a corrupt and violent society. But the solution is one: purification of the heart, bringing love in the heart.

So now, politicians, religious people, churches, temples, mosques – people have the problem in their heart. That is why they are all fighting, because the heart is impure.

Muslims, Christians and Jews all say, ‘I am the best.’ But they have hatred in the heart. The best is one who has love in the heart. This knowledge of spirituality will help human beings learn love. If you spread this message of love and people learn to love, the society will improve. In order to improve the society, we have to teach love. We need this message to be taken to everybody. When they remove hatred and learn love, there will be no violence in our country.

Q: I am very excited, happy and honoured to be here. Your Holiness, I respect you very much. How come you are so full of love and surrounded by such lovely people? You so down-to-earth and don’t seem to consider yourself a very high person. Other ‘holy’ people don’t let anybody get close to them and you are such a simple person!

We are also very honoured to be here with you. My Master, Lord Ra Riaz, is the clue.

We are all human beings. We are equal. Love is greater than us. Thank you so much for your love. I love you all.

Q: Why do us human beings get so confused by all the feelings we have in us?

Because we are a compound living being – we have a soul and a body and both have different feelings. When our soul is not awakened, we are confused. So we need to awake our soul. When our body needs energy, we want to be touched. When the soul is awakened, the confusion will go away.

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

The following is an excerpt from  Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar’s recent talk with community leaders during his visit to Mexico.

Divine Love has different flavours. It is just like frozen yoghurt: there is a mango flavour, a strawberry flavour and others. In the same way, Divine Love has many flavours: a Muslim flavour, Christian flavour, Jew flavour, etc. We are giving people plain Divine Love without a flavour. The difference between our approach and the religious approach is very big.

Religion only focuses on its people. We focus on everybody.

We are not here to extend our organisation but we want to share our methodology of love. We represent God, so this method of love is without a flavour – not a Christian, Jew or Muslim flavour – only love.

Because of religion, people are fighting now. In every religion, there were two types of knowledge: the Knowledge of the Exterior and Knowledge of Spirituality. Now, because no religion has the Knowledge of Spirituality left – every religion has forgotten spirituality – they are learning to hate each other. We are just talking about spirituality without religion. We have people from all religions in our organisation.

Now, how do we obtain love? The word ‘love’ has always been grossly misunderstood. It is like asking somebody who is hungry to be happy and smile. Even if that person tries to smile and be happy, he will still look hungry. He will only become genuinely happy when you give him food. In the same way, we ask people to love, but our hearts do not know love.

We talk about love very randomly. We have taken it very easy. Even if we don’t mean it, we say, ‘I love you’. And then, the next minute, if we don’t like them, we say, ‘I hate you’. So we don’t understand love.

In order to understand love, first, we have to remove negative energy from our hearts.

Love is pure. If our heart is impure, we cannot love.

Our main focus is to remove negative energy from us. When negative energy is removed from our bodies, we will bring positive energy. Then, our love for God will flourish. One who genuinely loves God cannot hate anybody. He will love everybody. Sometimes we love somebody and we hate somebody else. Why is that? It is because we have love and hate together inside the heart.

Without hatred, the heart is pure. When there is only love in the heart, you cannot hate anybody.

We have hatred, evil, negative energy in our heart and at the same time, we are also trying to love God. We love somebody and we hate somebody else because we still have the ability to hate. First, our approach is to remove hatred and negativity from the heart. This is a condition from God.

God says, ‘I will only give you love when you remove hatred from the heart.’

For many years in our own capacity, in different regions and countries, we have been trying to overcome this factor of hatred from our life.

How is the Goharian Method Different?

In order to tell you how our method is different, I want to tell you a story. In England, we have painkillers that are opium-based. They mix opium with paracetamol, so when you have extreme pain, they give you relief. But it’s very addictive. I used to have very extreme pain because of migraines. Whenever I had a migraine I would take those tablets because they would help me feel relaxed.

I had been taking these tablets from a long period of time and one day, I discovered that I became addicted. I found out that addiction to these tablets was not good for my health. I promised myself that I was not going to take those tablets anymore. I stopped taking them but I realised that I was feeling very down and I became too weak. The withdrawal effects were tolling on my health. So I took those tablets again and I felt better. I started walking again. It is the mind that tells us that something is dangerous and we shouldn’t take it. My mind understood it, but my body didn’t understand it. Now I was in deep trouble. I knew it was dangerous, but I had to take it.

This is Method 1. Everybody is doing this. They say, ‘This is wrong. Don’t do it. Don’t hate anybody.’ All the religions say that. No religion teaches us to hate anybody.

The Koran says, ‘Don’t kill anybody.’ but Muslims are killing. The Bible says, ‘Don’t kill anybody,’ but [the Christians] are still doing it. One of the Ten Commandments is, ‘You will not kill anybody,’ but people are doing it. So our minds understand that one thing is good and another thing is bad – and we should not do the bad thing – but there is something inside us that forces us to do those things. When something is inside us forcing us to do things, we feel helpless.

Method 1 is weak because Method 1 is about our understanding. We understand we shouldn’t do this, but it happens nevertheless when something inside us is forcing us to do it.

What is Method 2, our method? Let’s go back to the story again. I realised that those tablets were very addictive and if I kept taking them, they were going to destroy my liver and my kidney. I wanted to stop taking them but I had become addicted. So then I consulted with a doctor in Virginia, USA.

He advised me, ‘You should go to a hospital. They will operate you and do minor surgery.’

They implanted something in my stomach. That implant in my stomach stopped the germs of the tablets. The effects of the tablets stopped going into my bloodstream. That implant removed all the effects of the tablets from my blood and I was cured.

In a similar way, we understand something is bad and we want to stop doing it, but the negative energy inside us forces us to do it.

Our method is to spiritually remove that negative energy from the body.

When the negative energy is removed from the body, even if somebody tells you, ‘Let’s go do this bad thing,’ you will not feel like doing it. This is a practical approach. Method 1 is mind over matter in which you think, ‘Okay, I have decided I won’t do it.’ For some people, it works – but some people have more negative energy in them so it doesn’t work for them. Method 2 works for everybody.

The Divine Staff
4th April 2019|Articles

The Divine Staff

The Divine Staff

This is the first in a series of talks by Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar on the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation.

Let me start from the very beginning. God sent 124,000 Prophets and Messengers and 313 religions were established. Then, in the end, the last species of Adam was introduced; only he was awarded the spiritual knowledge with which man could find union with God.

Before the introduction of spiritual knowledge, man would worship God physically and verbally. In that worship, no communication or interaction with God was involved. So, one would worship, worship and worship. There was no impact or effect of that worship on his personality; it would not benefit him in terms of improving his character or quality of life. He would worship and that worship had been recorded; made an account of. He would be rewarded for this worship on the Day of Judgement, that is all. But with the arrival of the Last Adam, spiritual knowledge was introduced and a newer type of worship was introduced which was to be carried out by the souls.

This worship, which was to be carried out by the souls, was also declared to be medicinal. Meaning if the souls are engaged in worship, it would not just be recorded in the Book of Your Accountability that would be presented to you on the Day of Judgement, but also, any amount of worship carried out by the souls would work as a divine medicine to heal and strengthen your souls. This is spiritual nourishment and the names of different attributes of God were like nutrients that one would need in order to qualify to be a friend of God.

So, this concept of a newer type of worship was amazing because you would start reaping the benefits of this worship while you are still here in this world.

On contrary to this, Adams and their progenies prior to the Last Adam would worship and in return, nothing would be granted to them in this phenomenal world. The only thing that would be granted to them would be granted on the Day of Judgement.

So, 124,000 Prophets and Messengers were sent altogether. Out of all these Prophets and Messengers, Messengers established 313 religions. Out of 313 religions, only 3.5 religions were established by Grand Messengers. In other words, God has been more merciful and generous upon the children of Abraham than anybody else. These religions – Islam, Christianity, Judaism – in the eyes of God these are the best religions that could [connect one to God].

Adam introduced how to connect with God and how to interact with God. That’s all. But with the arrival of Abraham, this concept came that you can befriend God! This was a revolutionary message because, never in the entire human history, would it have crossed the minds of many million human beings belonging to many thousand different species of Adam.

With the arrival of Moses, a divine chit-chat was introduced: messaging and voice calling with God! Moses was given this knowledge with which he elevated himself in spirituality so much that he was able to speak with God. When God would speak to him he would hear God’s voice physically. This was like a ‘voice call’ introduction with God.

Then came Jesus. When Jesus came, Jesus said, ‘All that you have been granted before is not worthy for me to talk about it. What I can give you, not even Adam, Abraham or Moses can think of.’

It was something really, really great. Then he went back and then came Prophet Mohammad. Before Prophet Mohammad, only voice calls were introduced with God.

With the arrival of Prophet Mohammad, the ‘Divine Snapchat’ was introduced: you see me and I see you. You speak to me and I will speak to you. You make mention of my name and I will make mention of your name. That was the culmination of the knowledge.

The Types of Knowledge

There were different religions and everybody would follow his/her respective religion. They were given three different types of knowledge:

  1. The Knowledge of the Exterior. It is all about how to control and purify your body, how to live a balanced life and how to behave with other fellow human beings.
  2. The Knowledge of the Heart. It was about how to revive, awaken and spiritualise your heart and make it worthy of interaction with God.
  3. The Realm of Reality. There are certain spiritual stations in the esoteric realms that you cannot access with the divine energy you generate with your inner faculties. You need a powerhouse and that powerhouse is a Spiritual Guide [who has the] the Knowledge of Reality. It is the Realm of Reality in which you do not carry out any worship or invocation. Your Spiritual Guide with his power spiritually journeys your souls from one point to another; this is the Realm of Reality.

With these three different types of knowledge, all these three religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) progressed. Sufism flourished in in the Abrahamic Faiths. Christian spirituality is very famous.

The Divine Staff

The fourth knowledge, the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation (Muarifa) was introduced to those only who have obtained union with God.

The Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was granted to those who, following the spiritual path, arrived at the station of the Divine Splendour and they have witnessed the divine beauty. This Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was given to those who have seen God.

In this knowledge, God teaches them not to discriminate among human beings on the basis of their religious backgrounds. When God delegates somebody to be a Spiritual Master, then God commands them not to discriminate among human beings for any reason – whether it be their complexion, race, religious or cultural background – provide them with equal opportunities to find God.

Those who acquired this knowledge are the ones who say, ‘Whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Jew or Sikh, come – let me connect you to God.’

Those who were not given the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation, they somehow or another were confined and restricted to their religious boundaries. Like a Muslim Saint would only render spiritual grace to the Muslims. However, those who were given this Knowledge of the Divine Mediation would not see any difference among human beings.

They would only care [and think], ‘If this person is expiring and his heart aspires to see God, then, they would let him go and see God.’

These are the problems that God has to face every day. God is not a Muslim God or a Christian God. God is just a God – he is God – to him all are equal. If he wants to guide anybody then he would guide anybody, whether that somebody is black, pink, white, yellow or brown and whether that person is a Muslim, a Christian or a Hindu. God is above everything. God is above Islam and Christianity.

God can guide anybody through anybody.

This Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was only granted to selected friends of God. Those who were granted this knowledge only focused on guiding people without any reservations or prejudice. They would not want to see whether that person is a Christian, a Jew or a Hindu. Those who did not have this knowledge would feel the restraints. They would feel that they are confined. They could not think beyond their religions. They are not wrong, but they are confined to their boundaries.

However, those who have been taught The Knowledge of the Divine Mediation understand what it means to be from within the Divine Staff. You work for God, you do not work for Islam, Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism. You represent God.

You are from the Divine Department. So, even if you had a Christian or Muslim background, now you are working with God. Now, you will only understand God’s problems.

Those who follow a particular religion, their religion’s perimeters are very small and they have very little room to manoeuvre here and there. Those who work for God, they have God’s policies. The Department of Guidance is with God. Nobody else has the authority to guide anybody.

God says to Prophet Mohammad, ‘O Prophet Mohammad, it is not the case that you will love somebody and you can guide him also.’ – Koran 28:56

Here, God is saying, ‘You can love somebody but it doesn’t mean that you can guide those that you love also. This is my department. Only those will be guided that are guided by me.’

‘I guide the hearts.’ – Koran 64:11

When God guides you, he will not guide your nose [or eyes, ears, etc.]. He will choose a spiritual organ in your body and that is your heart.

God has this department. In this department, he has individuals from different religions. However, when they join God, their loyalty with their religions is no more.

They are more loyal to God than they are to their own respective religions because they have been blessed by God to be part of his Divine Staff.

On a lower level, God advises the Messengers to have their own staff through which guidance can be articulated. Those are the saints who follow religious law. That is different.

The mighty friends of God – the elite ones who are in very close proximity of God; who have been delegated by God – they would spiritually appear anywhere to a follower of any religion and would guide them.

Now, this is the knowledge that we are now trying to elaborate, explain and share with our people. This is so that they can understand why we – people from Pakistan who have Muslim names – are talking about guiding everybody. They might ask, ‘Is this some kind of a Godly scam or something? No, it is a type of knowledge which directly makes you part of God’s Staff.

The Goharian Creed

Then, onwards you only follow the Divine Policies, not the policies of your religion. For example, many different people in Pakistan – especially the Anjuman Sarfaroshan-e-Islam, when they do not understand His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s teachings, they put all the dirt on me. They fail to understand HDE Gohar Shahi’s knowledge and they fail to understand what is the Divine Project that HDE Gohar Shahi is projecting.

Then they start saying that, ‘Younus is an agent from the Christian world, an agent of Jews, he is a disbeliever, an enemy of Islam.’

No, I am not an enemy of Islam or any religion. It is just that for some time, I followed the policies of Islam. Then, when I was introduced to Sufism, I adopted the Sufi policies.

When HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘You are now my representative,’ a new set of policies were handed to me! I follow the policies of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

In every religion, there is a set creed and they go by their creed. HDE Gohar Shahi also explains what the Goharian Creed is.

Every religion will want to blow their own trumpet, like, ’I am the best!’ Some Muslims do not get tired claiming that they are the best. The same problem is with the Jews. Christians have their own philosophies. But every single religion cannot see beyond their own religion.

To Muslims, Prophet Mohammad is the greatest. To the followers of Moses, Moses is the greatest. Moses talked about the Ten Commandments, out of which Jesus rejected four. Jesus said, ‘I don’t recognise them.’

So, everybody thinks he is the best and greatest of all.

Then HDE Gohar Shahi touches upon this subject. HDE Gohar Shahi says, ‘Do you want to know what I think about it? Do you want to know what my belief system is?’ And then HDE Gohar Shahi says, ‘Let everybody from every religion stand in a line – Muslims, Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, everybody, and ask God, “Who do you want to see?”’

HDE Gohar Shahi is not saying, ‘How do I feel about it?’ HDE is saying, ‘Let them all stand in a line and then ask God. You shouldn’t make any claims. Ask God, who he wants to see!’

And then before His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi tells us who God is going to see, He tells us that at night time when you look at the sky you will see many shining stars. Maybe you will know the names of one, two or three stars. But you can see even those stars that are unknown to you because they are shining. If they were not shining you wouldn’t be able to see them.

In a similar way, God looks at your heart when he wants to see you. If your heart is enlightened, God will see that heart.

Whether you found enlightenment of the heart through Islam, Christianity, or Judaism or you got the enlightenment without any religion – because your heart is enlightened, God will look at your heart and see your heart. This is Gohar Shahi’s creed.

According to Muslims, if you praise something else other than Islam you are an enemy of Islam.

However, I have come to know that the message that HDE Gohar Shahi is parting with is greater than any religion. Why? Because HDE Gohar Shahi is aiming at the enlightenment of your heart. Not through the vigorous practice of your religion for 40-50 years. All you need to do is show the willingness of your heart and find a representative of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi in any of your countries.

There are many human beings, now, who represent HDE Gohar Shahi in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Canada, the United States of America, Australia – in many countries of the world. They are being trained in light of the fourth knowledge, the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation. They are asked not to discriminate among any human being on the basis of their religion, culture or country. To guide everybody and provide them with equal spiritual opportunities is the aim.

This is my first talk on this subject which means I am going to be talking on the same subject for many days. Many more different points relating to this subject will spur out.

We recognise the entire human race as one family. They may be Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus – whoever they may be, we are not concerned about it.

The only thing we are concerned about is, ‘Is he one of those that must be guided? According to the Divine Policy, is the one who is destined to be guided by God? If he is the one, then we don’t care who he is – Christian, Hindu or a Jew – what matters is God’s will.’

If according to God’s will you must be guided then you must be guided no matter who you are.

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi
21st October 2018|ArticlesStatement

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi

The following is a message from Younus AlGohar about his Spiritual Guide, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

HDE Gohar Shahi’s voice is the voice of love and peace. HDE Gohar Shahi calls for mutual love, respect for humanity, the true understanding of the religious beliefs and tolerance for others religions and faiths.

It is quite disappointing that some of the Muslims in Pakistan do not appreciate our efforts towards building a cognitively healthy and tolerant society.

The religion of Islam is a form of the divine bounty that caters for the spiritual and societal needs of the world. Ironically Islam has been gravely misunderstood by thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

It would be utterly undermining the calibre and potential of the religion of Islam if it is confined to a ritualistic aspect only. Islam is far greater a religion than assuming it to be a set of beliefs that direct us to worship God only.

Primarily we aim at inviting the Muslims to stop being divided in dozens of sects. And the reason for this division is lack of inner knowledge and enlightenment of the heart. The hearts are pre-occupied with Satan. And the Satan is playing under the labels of Sunni, Shia, Wahhabi, Ahmedi, Deobandi denominations. None of the above labels are part of the Ummah that the beloved Prophet Mohammad PBUH founded some 1440 years ago.

Today, as we speak, all these labels are religiously slashing throats of each other and they declare it Jihad.

Even the Islamic world is divided in two major fractions: Sunni Islam and Shia Islam. Bloodshed in Syria and Yemen is the prime example of this division.

As for the common Muslims, they swiftly put the blame on the West whereas the Muslims emperors and politicians are the real culprits and are responsible for sectarian conflicts in Syria and Yemen. Pakistan has been subjected to sectarian hatred and bloodshed for over a decade now. My friends, the West is not your enemy, the enemy is among you and within you.

We promote love and peace and we invite people to adopt spirituality so that we manage to enlighten the hearts thus get rid of this evil division within Islam and become united again to be known as Ummah of the Beloved Prophet PBUH.

This is the voice of love, peace, justice and God. And this is the voice of HDE Gohar Shahi.

'In order to behave and live like God, God has given us a set of celestial souls: five in our breast and one lies in our head (the Third Eye). When the [soul in the head] is awakened and enlightened, then we are able to see God. We are able to see Jesus, Abraham and Moses – all these great personalities were the wonderful teachers of spirituality.' - Sufi Spiritual Revivalist Younus AlGohar

New Video: Jannati aur Jahanumi Ki Pehchan | ALRA TV | By Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVNer0xrFzM

How do you recognise if someone is paradise-bound or not?

Summary:

'I created the majority of human beings and Jinns for hellfire. They have hearts that lack [spiritual] understanding and eyes that do not have [the spiritual] vision. They are like animals. In fact, they are even more misguided than animals. Verily, they are the Heedless Ones (Ghafileen). ' - Koran 7:179

In other words, their subtleties do not have spiritual functions. Their subtleties are senseless. The souls and Jinns created for hellfire are created with the same substance: anger and fire.

'We want to worship you and that will only be possible with your help. Show us the Straight Path (Sirat ul Mustaqeem), the path of those you have granted your bounty. Not the path of those created with your anger.' - Koran 1:1-7

The Prophets, Messengers, saints and Sauliheen have been trained by God to teach people how to worship him with their souls and remove the veils off people's souls.

God is angry with those created with his anger - the souls who will go to hellfire. He is not angry with anyone else. Their hearts cannot be revived with the Activation of the Spiritual Heart (Dhikr-e-Qalb). God's mercy upon you is demonstrated by him allowing your heart to say his name.

'Whoever obtains Shahr-e-Sadr (Opening of the Chest) for Islam, he shall be upon the light from his Lord. And woe and destruction upon those whose hearts are too hard to absorb the [name of] God, they are in open misguidance.' - Koran 39:22

Those who perform all physical worship but God's name doesn't enter their hearts are undoubtedly misguided.

'They remember God while standing, sitting and tossing and turning [in their beds].' - Koran 3:191

'On the Day of Judgement, only he shall be successful who brings with him a Qalb-e-Saleem (Secured Heart).' - Koran 26:88--89

'And whoever believes in God, God will guide his heart.'- Koran 64:11

'God has written faith on their hearts.' - Koran 58:22

God finds pretexts to grant salvation to those who are predestined for paradise. For example, he will send people to paradise just because they gave food or water to a saint.

Imam Mehdi His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is granting humanity permission for Dhikr-e-Qalb (Activation of the Spiritual Heart). Dhikr-e-Qalb is evidence of success and guidance. Right now only HDE Gohar Shahi has the power to revive hearts.
