Blood Moons Rising – Younus AlGohar

Blood Moons Rising – Younus AlGohar

The signs from God that will manifest for the Awaited One, Jesus Christ, the End Times and Armageddon will occur in the same era. If a sign is occurring for the Awaited One, this sign also tells us that the End Times are near.

The messengers of God foretold events which are to occur towards the End Times, the advent of the Awaited One and the time frame in which Jesus Christ will return. These signs are very rapidly appearing one after the other. 

World leaders should study what the Bible, Torah, Prophetic Traditions and the Quran say about signs of the End Times and advent of the Awaited Ones. Events are taking place which denote the End Times, such as global terrorism.

The world has seen bloodshed but it was not as widespread throughout the world as it is now. The world leaders should ponder! Do not label this as terrorism only.

Prophet Mohammad foretold, ‘When my Mehdi comes to this world, something special will take place which has never taken place before.’ Prophet Mohammad’s prophecy is in regards to the lunar and solar eclipses in Ramadan indicating Imam Mehdi’s advent. He said, ‘There will be a lunar eclipse on the 1st of Ramadan and a solar eclipse on 15th of Ramadan. This is an announcement from God that Imam Mehdi is here.’ 

I asked Prophet Mohammad,‘Why choose eclipses as a sign? What is the benefit of it?’ He replied,‘To let people see the image of Imam Mehdi.’ Due to the radiance of the Sun, the human eye cannot spot any profile on its surface and the light surrounding the Moon also makes it difficult. God dims the light during the eclipse to make it easier to be able to see the image of Imam Mehdi with the naked eye.  

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Imam Mehdi will not come to this world until a sign appears on the Sun about Imam Mehdi.’ He also said, ‘Looking at the face of Imam Mehdi is no lesser than looking at the face of God.’

The Quran said:

سَنُرِيهِمۡ ءَايَـٰتِنَا فِى ٱلۡأَفَاقِ وَفِىٓ أَنفُسِہِمۡ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمۡ أَنَّهُ ٱلۡحَقُّ‌ۗ أَوَلَمۡ يَكۡفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ ۥ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ شَہِيدٌ

[41:53]

‘We will show them our signs in the horizons and within themselves…’

Some people translate أَفَاقِ (afaaq) as sky; that’s wrong. The Arabic word for sky is سماء ‘samaa’, not ‘afaaq’. ‘Afaaq’ means the upper realm of Alam-e-Nasut (Terrestrial Realm); everything that is floating in the solar system is inside ‘afaaq’. This includes Mars, the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and any other planet. It does not just mean planets: many stars too – such as the Nebula Star – are part of ‘afaaq’.

Now, if this verse of the Quran was meant to address Prophet Mohammad or his Companions, then God would not address the third person. God is not talking about them; it is not for the Companions of the Prophet or for that era.

Before, people witnessed divine signs which were for the prophets and messengers. In this verse, God did not say, ‘I will show signs for Imam Mehdi.’ He said, ‘I will show my signs.’

God’s sign is that you will see God walking with you on the ground! 

There are two types of divine signs:

1) For the common man – those which you simply see, take spiritual benevolence from and become enlightened.

2) For the elite – those which you absorb in you and become one with God.

People have this misconception that the world will suddenly come to an end one day. This is not the case. There are two stages to the End Times. In the first stage, people would die but in smaller groups of 10-12. Then, they’ll begin to die in larger groups of 50-100. Then, all of a sudden, it will increase to 500 at a time.

Blood Moons

The world has already entered the second stage of the End Times. World leaders should ponder! Don’t dismiss prophecies regarding the End Times.

The Western world may have turned away from religion; however, prophecies foretold by prophets and messengers should be taken into consideration.

You should understand that these Wahhabis are not just a bunch of thugs; they are a sign, an indication of the End Times.

Prophetic Traditions reveal the signs foretelling the advent of Imam Mehdi. The Bible reveals signs of the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ and the Armageddon with the Antichrist. According to a Tradition of the Prophet Mohammad, the regular occurrence of the solar and lunar eclipse is the sign of the advent of Imam Mehdi.

According to the Bible, the regular occurrence of the Blood Moon is the indication that the final battle between Jesus and the Antichrist is near.

If within a year or two, the Blood Moon has occurred four times, it means the preparations for the Armageddon have begun. Whenever the Blood Moon has occurred, a big incident has occurred along with it.

American journalists say, ‘Islam is attacking America,’ but they don’t say, ‘[Radical] Islam is attacking Christianity.’ They are attacking on you not because you are American, but because you are Christian.

The likes of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Al Qaeda are all agents of the Antichrist. They’re fighting with you because you’re Christian, and you are heedless of your religion!

Read the Bible. If such events which have been prophesied are occurring, what should you do in light of the Bible? The decisions that should be made in the light of the Bible are being made in the Congress and Parliament. 

Through the Antichrist, the Devil will manifest evil traits. The world will be worse than ever before.

People think we live in the worst era. I say to them, ‘Don’t lose hope. You are yet to see the manifestation of God!’ 

Followers of Antichrist have oil, gold, land and power. But we have everything; we are the owners of the entire universe. 

The evil-in-action is killing people and manifesting death. We have been delegated to manifest eternal life.

Think of it like a cricket match; both teams cannot bat at once. The world is stinking with hatred due to the fact that the Devil has settled in the Antichrist. Every day, we hear news of killings, massacre and carnage, but that’s just the first innings! Imam Mehdi and Jesus Christ are waiting their turn, and then every shot played will be a six!

To the world leaders: don’t lose hope. God has not abandoned you or stranded you. He is watching over you – not as a spectator, but as a third umpire.

When Religions Become Monsters
4th December 2015|Articles

When Religions Become Monsters

When Religions Become Monsters

The world has changed so much and hatred is spreading far and wide. Humanity is going through the worst phase in history. Religions have become monsters.

When a person dies, their main soul is taken to the higher realms by the angels. Other auxiliary souls, if they are alive, stay in the grave. If none of the souls are alive, then at least one soul has to stay in the grave until the Day of Judgement is established. That one soul is the Self (the Nafs).

If you are passing through a cemetery, you may notice that there is a sense of fear from an unknown source. The Self is from the nation of Djinns. It is not completely an ethereal being; its nature is substance. The Self is affected by the cold and hot weather which is why it needs protection. Therefore, we make graves.

Now in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, people have started cremating their dead because it is cheaper than burying them. That is not good because when your body dies and is buried in the grave, the Self remains in your body. If the Self is purified and enlightened, it engages itself in invocation of God and different forms of worship. If it is not purified, then different Djinns (evil spirits) come and stay in that grave.

As long as there is a soul in your body and it is enlightened, no evil spirit will enter your body. If your soul is not enlightened and you don’t have divine energy in your body, then any evil spirit or Djinn can enter your body at any time and stay there. Djinns need protection which is why they seek shelter in bodies, houses, graves and different places.

Similarly, the soul of a religion is spirituality. When the spiritual system in any religion is destroyed, the religion becomes like a body which is vulnerable to forced entry by evil spirits. When the spiritual system in any religion was destroyed, then religion was murdered or made abode by the devil. This is when a religion becomes a monster.

A religion is not just a set of beliefs but also a set of principles from God. You are meant to adopt them and make a society in which everybody is given his and her rights. Self-respect and justice prevail and nobody is physically hurt. Everybody lives in perfect harmony.

God knows about you better than you do because you are God’s creation; he is aware of your nature.

In accordance with your nature, God sends down a set of principles with a messenger or a prophet. You adopt them and enlighten your mind, your soul and your lifestyle.

By adopting those divine principles, you establish a society in which there is no discrimination, tyranny or hatred.

When the spiritual system in the religion is destroyed and becomes subject to amalgamating opinions from human beings, it becomes a monster.

A common man does not leave any impact on the religion by rendering his opinions.

However the opinion of those who are held responsible for promoting and upholding the religious laws impact the religion.

According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘When a common man makes a mistake, he becomes a sinner. When a mistake is made by a religious scholar then the religion is badly affected.’

A religion becomes a monster when the doctrine of spirituality and methodology of connecting hearts with God vanishes from that religion. Muslims will definitely find it difficult to understand – due to lack of knowledge about their religion – but it is true that Islam has been left with nothing but its name. The Quran has been left with no spiritual grace and benevolence for except the custom of recitation. This is why, Islam which is only 1436 years old, has become a monster today.

The Revolution of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi

Some people are astounded when they hear this coming from a coloured man like myself, who originally comes from Pakistan and  who has been a very strict practitioner of the religion of Islam. They find it almost unbelievable and think, ‘This is too good to be true.’ I want to tell these individuals how this has become a reality.  

How has it become possible for someone with my background to explain that the religion of Islam has also become a monster and that there is nothing left in Islam for except its name and nothing left in the Quran for except of customary recitation?

This would not have been possible had it not been for the sake of the spiritual grace of His Divine Eminence  Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.

The credit goes to His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi for the fact that He, with spiritual power or His words of wisdom, gave us, the followers of HDE Gohar Shahi, the power of comprehension. With the spiritual concentration of His divine sight, He changed the hearts. He changed our thought process. He showed us the reality and He gave us intuitional understanding of the path and the religion. This power of comprehension is very important. It is not available any where in any book, mosque, temple, church, or country. It is a gift of HDE Gohar Shahi.

With the doctrine of HDE Gohar Shahi, we realised that Islam, Judaism, Christianity or any other religion is just a means to reach God. A religion is not the destination; God is the destination.

Until we met HDE Gohar Shahi, many of us thought that Islam was everything rather than God. Although we never verbalised it, in the back of our minds we always thought, ‘If we are not Muslims, we will never reach God.’ We were so wrong.

So many people reached and loved God even when there was no Islam. If Islam was the only religion which would connect people with God then why did Islam come towards the end of the world? What about the other people who came into this world and never practised Islam – how did they reach God then?

When this sheet of ignorance which was keeping our minds and intellect in the dark was removed with the spiritual concentration of HDE Gohar Shahi’s spiritual sight, I personally felt that a bar had been lifted.

God has created so many religions. If you can reach God following any religion, you are perfectly fine with that religion whether it is Hinduism, Sikhism or any other religion. That was the first barrier which was removed from our intellect and thought process. This was the point when my short-sightedness vanished. Before this, there has been a deadlock of limitations on my intellect and understanding because of which I was about to plunge into extremism.

Extremism

Extremism is when you think, ‘My religion is the best. No one can reach God without my religion, therefore everybody must adopt it – otherwise they are infidels.’

You become an extremist when you have wrong perceptions about your religion.

For example, you become a bad person when you have wrong perceptions about yourself. There are many people who think they are the best and nobody is equal to them. When you think like this, it means you live in a fool’s paradise.  

When you think that your religion is the only truthful religion, everybody else is a non-believer and all other religions are fake, this is a wrong perception. I wonder why most Muslims think that if you are not a Muslim, you are a non-believer. What a silly thought! If you are Christian or Jewish, believe in God and respect your prophet then how are you not a believer?

Those who believe in God may practise any religion; you cannot call them non-believers.

You don’t have to have a religion in order to be a believer. You can be a believer even if you don’t practise or have any religion. But somehow or other, a majority of Muslims perceive that all those individuals who do not believe in Islam are non-believers. This is a misleading concept.

When people who do not know about Islam come to know of this perception of Muslims, they will think this notion has come from the Quran. They don’t know that the Quran never said that.

The Quran has set a principle. There are three points in the eyes of God for you to be believer: you must believe in God, the Day of Judgement and purification. If you believe in these three things, you may believe in any religion – whether you come from Judaism, Christianity or you are a Muslim – in the eyes of God you are a favourite.  

The State of Islam Today

The trouble is that the concurrent ideology of Islam is not from Quran; it consists of sectarianism, creeds and opinions of different religious scholars within Islam. One denomination in Islam will 100% contradict with another denomination in Islam. They are so impatient and intolerant that they cannot coexist in one society. This is why they are killing each other and calling each other non-believers who must die!

The thing is: who do we blame for it? God? People? Who?  

For example, when a set of traffic lights stops working, the government puts up a sign stating, ‘This set of traffic lights on this particular road is irreparable. Please do not use this road anymore.’ If people do not stop going there and continue to use it, when the traffic comes from all directions, cars will collide and people will get killed.

Who is responsible for this? The government said, ‘Don’t use this road.’ They didn’t fix it because they said it was irreparable. If you say, ‘This notification from the government did not reach me, I was never informed,’ [it is still your responsibility]. It was your duty to read the signs. The government will not send a letter to each and every citizen of the country!  

In a similar way, when the spiritual system is destroyed in a religion it is a sign from God, ‘Do not use this religion!’

Younus AlGohar’s Interview with Siyatha TV

Younus AlGohar’s Interview with Siyatha TV

The following are selected excerpts from Younus AlGohar’s interview with Siyatha TV in Sri Lanka.

Religions and the Spiritual System

All the religions were established by great personalities. These personalities were sent by God, so no religion is bad. However, what happened in the last 100-200 years is that almost every religion has lost the spiritual system.

As a result of this spiritual system being destroyed, people are not truly aware of the soul of their religion, of the principle message of their religion.

This is why most Muslims are not good Muslims, most Hindus are not good Hindus and most Christians are not good Christians. And of course Buddhists who are not good Buddhists are so because they are not properly doing what they have been taught to do. This happens when you lose enlightenment, when you lose connection with God.

The problem is: people are still religious but something is wrong with their methodology. Some important part of the knowledge of the religion is missing. This is why they are misled into wrongdoings. When the youth see these religious people, they are not inspired by them because they always fighting. They are full of hatred.

The youth will never be inspired by these religious people; however the youth will be inspired by spirituality. The youth want to see results.

When they adopt spirituality and they feel good, they feel strength and they feel uplifting of their soul, they will definitely be inspired by spirituality. They will never be inspired by these religious people because they are not making any progress either within themselves or within the society. They are only making it worse, fostering more hatred and intolerance.

Spirituality is the key and solution to the existing problems.

Nowadays, people are changing their religions. I don’t think it’s going to make any difference because nobody is connected to God through any religion.

All religions come from God. If you are a Muslim and you want to study Hinduism, what is wrong with it? Hinduism also came from God. If you are a Muslim and you want to study the Bible, what’s wrong with it? The Bible also came from God. There is only one God. Either you are Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jew or a Buddhist; it’s the same God, just different names. These objects are different manifestations of the same God.

Because of the lack spiritual knowledge in all these religions, people have become intolerant.

I’ll give you an example: one man works as a doorman, another works as an anchor and the third person works as a Chief Executive – but nobody is getting a salary. Does it make any difference? He is a doorman, he doesn’t get a salary. You are an anchor; you don’t get your salary. The Chief Executive doesn’t get his salary. So basically, you are not getting anything.

In a similar way, when you are a Muslim and you are not connected to the God. It doesn’t make any difference whether you become a Hindu, a Muslim or a Christian. If you are not connected to God; nothing is working for you. If you were connected to God as a Muslim, you would never leave your religion. If you are connected to God as a Buddhist, you would never leave your religion – because then it would not be about the religion. You would be connected with God.

You would respect that religion, because through that religion, you were connected to God.

A Brief Introduction to Kalki Avatar Lord Ra Gohar Shahi and His Mission

Lord Ra Gohar Shahi is sent by God and there are Divine Signs [proclaiming His advent].

His images have become prominent on the Moon, the Sun, on Mars and the Holy Black Stone. The Holy Black Stone is greatly revered and people, out of love and affection, kiss it. It is believed that when they kiss it, all their sins are washed away. God has manifested his signs in the form of images of His Divine Grace Lord Ra Gohar Shahi and people all over the world believe Lord Ra Gohar Shahi to be Kalki Avatar, Imam Mehdi and Messiah.

According to the divine plan, His Divine Eminence Kalki Avatar/Imam Mehdi/Messiah Gohar Shahi is here for the entire humanity, for everybody in this world. It is not physically possible for everybody to see him in person. That’s why these images have become prominent. If people look at the Moon, when they see the image of HDE Gohar Shahi, they can speak with that image and they will have a reply. They can also receive spiritual healing and spiritual grace. All those things can be obtained from the image on the moon.

He is love, He is for everybody and His purpose on Earth is to teach everybody love and peace. [He is] uniting all humanity.

Kalki Avatar Lord Ra Gohar Shahi is not a physical doctor; he is doing something which nobody can do. He can heal the wounds of the soul.

These wounds of the souls cannot be healed in any hospital by doctor. So people will approach His Divine Grace Lord Ra Gohar Shahi for their spiritual ailments and spiritual wounds – which nobody can [heal]. And His blessings are for everybody without any hindrance, without any limitations, without any discrimination for everybody.

Kalki Avatar right now is in occultation and physically is not making any appearances to common people. However, the time will come when he will become apparent and people will be able to meet with him. Through our representatives you may be in conversation with Lord Ra Gohar Shahi.

Prescribed Method of Meditation

Meditation that we propagate is a little different than what others describe. This meditation that we promote is done after the enlightenment of the heart and the soul. When the soul is enlightened, when the heart is enlightened then the souls inside our body become worthy of making a spiritual journey. When the journey is performed by these souls and they arrive at their respective spiritual station that is called meditation.

His Divine Grace Lord Ra Gohar Shahi has penned down a book on spirituality and this book is available online and it can be downloaded. It is available on www.amazon.com and other international book stores. If people study this book, they will understand the purpose of life. Maybe it will bring a change in their lives.

How a Fanatic Compares to a Lover of God
29th October 2015|Articles

How a Fanatic Compares to a Lover of God

How a Fanatic Compares to a Lover of God

The following is an excerpt from a speech delivered by Younus AlGohar.

Fanaticism

Messiah Foundation International has come up with a diagnostic solution of ongoing global terrorism. We understand that the reason behind this global terrorism today is the radicalisation from a certain denomination in Islam.

In the era before 9/11, such individuals were known as fundamentalists. ‘Fundamentalism’ is a term that was coined by a think tank in Western society to refer to people who strictly follow the religion and disapprove of Western values.

Then, from fundamentalism, they took a big leap to extremism.

Fanaticism is the cogitation in which people become so obsessed with their religious beliefs that they become irrational. This comes with brainwashing.

I watched a movie in which there were two women in love with one man. One was a calm character and the other was very hyper; by hook or crook, she wanted to be with her beloved. When she found out that her beloved loved someone else, she took to physically harming him.

When you don’t manage to obtain what you want, you lose sanity and you become irrational; this is the state in which you become a fanatic.

True Love of God

For example, no prophet or messenger – not even God – has given this creation a more sublime knowledge than what Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has given to us, His followers. There is no truth in comparison to the truth that has been presented by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. There is no group of people in this world, in any religion or spiritual order who love their Master more than members of MFI do.

According to neo-spiritual principles of the Western society today, we perfectly fit into the personality cult regime. However, we have not lost sanity and we have not become irrational.

This is because the teachings of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi are a beautiful combination of the Exterior Knowledge and Interior Knowledge.

On one hand, the teachings of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi connect hearts of the masses with divinity. On the other hand, the teachings of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi connect a human being with another upon the principles of equity, mutual love, societal harmony and mutual respect for every single human soul on Earth.

If you ask Hindus, they think they are the best nation on Earth; they think Muslims are impure. If you ask Jews, they think they are the best. If you ask Muslims, they think the truth for the first time was brought by Prophet Mohammad; they believe the pre-Islamic era was full of darkness, infidelity and sorcery. However, they also admit the fact that Prophet Mohammad was the last of all the prophets and messengers – which clearly indicates the fact that there had been more than 124,000 prophets. Most definitely, these prophets were designated and anointed by the same God who sent Prophet Mohammad. The knowledge they brought upon their groups would have come from the same God. Even so, Muslims believe that Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians are infidels; they think they are the best.

We also say the same but we are not fanatics. We are not extremists and we do not hate. We love everybody. We love Hindus, we love Christians, and we love Jews – because we want everybody to become the best. We are not playing a game. It is not as if we are in a business where I become a billionaire and my counterpart goes bankrupt.

If any religion, group of people or faith practises Exterior Knowledge only and are naive to knowledge of spirituality, then they will eventually become hateful.

A Muslim boy in India was killed because he was eating beef. They said, ‘He was eating beef, so he must die.’ That’s terrible. He is eating beef according to the allowance set forth by his religion. Hindus regard cows to be sacred; they may practise their belief, but if someone wants to eat beef, then let him. For example, Muslims do not eat pork. However, when we go to United Arab Emirates, we see restaurants serving pork. When Muslims should not eat pig, they don’t eat it; but they don’t stop others. Go by the rules and regulations of your religion and let others go by the rules and regulations of their religion.

It is very interesting to note that in the Religion of God (Divine Love) by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, He said, ‘All these religions think they are the best. A Hindu says he is the best. A Muslim says he is the best. A Jew says he is the best and a Christian says he is the best. But Gohar Shahi says, “The best among all of you is one who has God’s love in his heart even if he doesn’t practise any religion.”’

The best among you is one whose heart is filled with God’s love. When you heart is filled with God’s love, you do not hurt or harm anybody, and this will show that you are the best. How can you consider yourself the best if you are causing distress to every single human being on Earth and spreading terrorism? If people have become uneasy because of your existence, are living in fear and are scared?

The best is one who benefits all; whose existence on earth is benefitting all human beings and everybody is safe by him.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘It’s not about being the best; it’s about loving God or not loving God. If you love God, you will love humanity. If you don’t love God you will not love humanity.’

Whether you practise a religion or not, it doesn’t really matter. The truth is, only the religious people do not love humanity. Those who practise religion [rigidly] don’t love humanity and those who do not believe in religions – even atheists – are helping poor people. They don’t hurt anybody or harm anybody. I doubt that God would want to love somebody who practises his religion but hates humanity – as opposed to somebody who says, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ but at the same time, he is helping a lot of people on Earth.

Such people have a belief system and in believing in all those principle universal truths set by God, no change is seen in them; [rather] their character worsens. Not only do they hate humanity, but they have become so intolerant that they do not want to see any other sect or group of people with a different set of beliefs on Earth. This is extreme intolerance; they cannot coexist with other religious people.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, ‘It doesn’t matter whether you believe in a religion or you don’t believe in it. Learn to love God; that’s what matters.’

Religions have set limitations. A Hindu will befriend another Hindu and a Muslim will befriend another Muslim.

When someone has liberated themselves from the limitations of the religion and are now focused on acquiring God’s love, then they will befriend anybody who wants to acquire and obtain divine love.

Obtaining divine love does not come by listening to lectures. These lectures will give you some knowhow of the path; however, you will manage to learn to love God only when you are initiated on to the Spiritual Path, when your souls are awakened and nurtured with the divine light and proximity of the Spiritual Guide.

The Difference Between Acceptance and Belief
12th October 2015|Articles

The Difference Between Acceptance and Belief

The Difference Between Acceptance and Belief

The message of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is divine love. It is not just a message; it is a full package which includes esoteric knowledge, divine esoteric methodology and then HDE Gohar Shahi’s esoteric supervision. One learns to enlighten the heart and spiritualise the character as per the spiritual philosophies of HDE Gohar Shahi under the blissful, auspicious and all-time supervision of HDE Gohar Shahi.

Spirituality as it has been explained by HDE Gohar Shahi, I believe is the purest form of spirituality. Nothing is exaggerated and nothing is lessened in its reality.

This world has witnessed not too many saints. Most of the saints who were sent into this world were not appointed as universal teachers. They lived within their own little world; most of the saints spent their lives in jungles. Those who returned to the world from the jungles, because they were not appointed as universal teachers by God, therefore they confined their teachings to a smaller group of disciples. People did not have first-hand experience of how a saint lives, behaves and conducts himself.

There is a trend in Pakistan. Sunni Muslims claim they are those who believe in the saints. And, apparently, there are thousands of people in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh who are self-proclaimed, fake saints. Most of these individuals come from the families of saints. For example, if there was a saint in a family some generations back, after that point, every child that is born in that family is [supposedly] a saint.

You are not going to be a saint just because your father is a saint. And you are not going to be deprived by God just because your father did not believe in God.

It is different. In spirituality, nothing is inherited. In spirituality, you are self-made. It is you; whatever it is, it is you. If you become a saint, you will become a saint because of what you have done. If you are a sinner, you are a sinner because of your bad deeds.

To Accept vs. To Believe

Spiritual terminology is connected to practical experiences. In our day-to-day life, the words that we use have a totally different meaning in spiritual terminology. The Christians say, ‘We believe in Jesus,’ and the Muslims say, ‘We believe in Mohammad and we believe in the saints.’ But they don’t know what it is to believe in the saints.

To accept is different from to believe.

With discussion and knowledge, you accept things that you did not accept when you did not have knowledge.

But because of the difference in terminology, people think that they believe in the saints. They do not believe in the saints; they accept them.

If you ask them, ‘How do you believe?’

They say, ‘Well, we heard that they are saints.’

That is not a valid answer to the question.

For example, if you say, ‘We eat Nihari (a curry),’ and I ask you, ‘How do you eat Nihari?’ you would respond by saying, ‘We bring it from a restaurant, pour it in our plates and we eat it with bread.’

‘That’s good. Now how do you believe in the saints? Have you met any saints?’

‘No, we heard about them.’

‘Alright. What do you know about them?’

‘They were great saints, they showed miracles.’

‘Is there any miracle of those saints that you have experienced in your life?’

‘No.’

Similarly, when people say that they believe in God, this is not believing; this is acceptance. People accept that there is a God. People accept that there was Jesus and Mohammad. To believe is different.

In order to believe, you have to be familiar with the powers, teachings – and with your own personal observation and experiences.

Is it enough to ‘believe in’ a saint, prophet or God? The meaning of to believe in in day-to-day life that people understand is [equivalent to saying] ‘I accept him.’ They do understand this difference. When they want to say, ‘I accept God,’ they say, ‘I believe in God.’

God said, ‘I am the total provider,’ so if you really believe in God, sit at home because God will provide food for you. You accept God; you don’t believe in God. Then how will you truly believe in God? With the help of the knowledge and teachings that God reveals upon messengers and prophets. When that knowledge enters your heart, you heart is enlightened and God’s light has entered your heart; that light of God in your heart will make a bridge between your heart and God. That is to believe in God.

When you actually start receiving the benevolence and spiritual grace through whatever source, then in that particular source, you begin to believe.
