Join Messiah Foundation UK and Sufi Spiritual Revivalist Younus AlGohar for a special discourse on the Awakening of the Spiritual Heart at the Mind, Body and Soul Experience in Alexandra Palace, London on 20 October 2019!
Messiah Foundation International UK participated in this year’s Croydon PrideFest to show their support for the LGBT community. Our team had an amazing time! Many of our delegates took part in various activities such as face painting, dancing to the live music and much more.
The LGBT community has been marginalised from the society and is subjected to discrimination even today. However, we at Messiah Foundation do not care whether you are transgender, bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual or anything else. Our message caters for the souls, not the bodies! We simply love and respect humanity. Therefore, the Croydon PrideFest was a wonderful opportunity to introduce our message of love, peace and equality to members of the LGBT community.
More than 3000 festival-goers saw the Divine Signs and merciful images of HDE Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Jesus Christ. Our members held up banners near the entrance of Queens Gardens where the parade culminated. Over 100 copies of the Messiah Herald Magazine, a monthly publication by Messiah Foundation, were also distributed at the pride.
Mr Steve Reed, Croydon’s Labour MP, issued a statement in support of Messiah Foundation’s labour of love. Here is what he said:
‘We’re all minorities in this community, and we have to look out for each other. It’s good to see you all out here tonight and I am delighted to support you!’
Another festival-goer stated,
‘Wow, it’s great to see and hear something new and exciting. Your organisation is doing a wonderful job towards the betterment of our society!’
Overall, the festival was sensational. We will continue to participate in such events in the near future as we spread HDE Gohar Shahi’s message.
How many human beings out of millions of people out there want to study themselves, want to study how emotions value themselves in our life; how emotionally do we go wrong and how our own emotions play with us and our mind? Due to the fact that we don’t have enough knowledge of our own self [and others around us], we never get to know our own emotions and feelings, the right conduct that we must carry; our demeanour, boundaries, our liberties and then liberties and boundaries of others. We take it for granted.
The following is a transcript of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer on YouTube live.
It is through the Subtlety of Akhfah (Arcane) that human beings can speak and through the Subtlety of Ana that they can see, but when the body dies the subtleties are wasted in the grave. You will not be granted new subtleties in paradise because the subtleties were given to human beings in the world as a test. God wanted to see if you would utilise these subtleties. This is a method but do not think this method is definite because the trees and animals don’t possess the Subtlety of Akhfah, however, God is Absolute Power and he can make any creature – animate or inanimate – do as he pleases.
When the human soul comes into the world and enters the body, it is in a dormant state. But when it goes back it is not in a dormant state. After spending time in this world, the soul will not be given a small body in paradise. The bodies there will be substantial and the same soul will be placed inside the new body, in accordance with its accountability. Those new bodies will never burn nor perish.
The reason for the ageing process in the world is resistance; then everything we eat is foreign to us because we were made from the clay in heaven. There is a lot of filth, which causes wear and tear on the body. However, there is no such thing in paradise. Everything there is in liquid form, even apples don’t have any texture. There are no solid things; hence, the bodies don’t go through exertion.
You might have heard stories that somebody who never spoke English before fell asleep one night and woke up speaking in English or somebody who lived in England all their life suddenly woke up with an American accent – these things do happen. God does show his Divine Power from time to time. The mechanism of speaking in the world is different to the mechanism in paradise; do not apply the rules of this world to the rules of paradise.
God said: I have Absolute Power over everything. Koran [5:120]
This is the reason why there are incidents whereby stones and animals speak. Prophet Mohammad’s staff used to converse with him; animals used to converse with him. However, this method of communication is different.
If you lived in the era of Prophet Mohammad, you might think the animals conversed with him in the Arabic language and you’d be able to hear the conversation. But the animals, sticks and stones did not converse in this manner; whatever they wanted to say would come onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad.
I used to think the same but once I was sitting on a sofa somewhere and all of the sudden my hands and feet began to itch. I had the same thought echoing in my mind over and over again that somebody has done something wrong on this sofa. I was disturbed; I didn’t know why this thought was echoing in my mind. I was perplexed. Then, after a few years, I was some place else, sitting on a bus and another thought began echoing in my mind repeatedly that somebody was stabbed here. When this started happening frequently, I became concerned and I asked His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi what was happening to me.
HDE Gohar Shahi explained, ‘These inanimate objects are conversing with you but you think they are just your thoughts. These things are actually speaking to you.’
Allama Iqbal said: If God granted you the friendship of nature; you’d be able to converse with the flowers.
This does not mean that you will be able to stand before a tree and ask it to tell you a story and you will hear the tree replying. Whenever inanimate objects converse with you, it will come onto your heart.
In order to be a verified recipient of this type of communication, you must be a Qalb-e-Shaheed (The Witnessing Heart). Otherwise, you may think things are communicating with you, but really they are your own thoughts.
When these communications come onto the Qalb-e-Shaheed, if they are evil thoughts they will be expelled, and if they are divine thoughts the production of Divine Light will increase. However, if the thoughts are neither expelled nor increase the Divine Light it simply means it is the communication from inanimate objects. If a tree is conversing with you, the script coming onto your heart will not be divine, would it? It will just be a thought. There will be no Divine Light in it because inanimate objects do not possess Divine light.
Now, the image of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi on the Moon can also communicate with people and the method of communication is the same: you ask your question in your heart and the answer will also be revealed onto your heart. This is how this method of communication is carried out.
Younus AlGohar explains how the illusions we create affect us and how to find out who you are in the mirror of the truth in order to adopt a lifestyle which agrees with your nature. His Holiness gives a guideline on how to overcome your failures and live a balanced lifestyle.
– It is very rare that any relationship is crystal clear, however, when the illusion we create of a relationship shatters, it can be painful. Some people are addicted to bottling up their emotions out of fear of exposing their flaws to the public and damaging their perfect image. Even this fear could be illusionary. Most people in this world are pious because they are hiding their true character; they have two faces.
– Most of the time people already have a self-fabricated stories about us in their minds which they use to judge us. It is very important to find out the intention behind somebody’s action before you judge them. Some people’s intentions are clear through their actions, however, some people struggle to convey their thoughts and talk backwards; this happens when you do not know what you want, you suppress yourself because you adopted a lifestyle that doesn’t agree to your nature.
– Knowing yourself in the mirror of the truth: how does your mind react to emotions? To weakness? To strength? When the mind doesn’t react to weakness perfectly, we are most likely to fall into the ditch of inferiority complex. Failure pushes you to feel inferior, but you need to learn: you are not inferior because you failed. You need to rectify the mistake and move on.
– HDE Gohar Shahi said: ‘Neither inferiority complex nor superiority complex is a good thing. Stay in the middle.’ You should attribute your successes to the important decisions you made in your life and your failures to the mistakes. This is balance.
– Before finding faults in other, keep a check and balance of yourself. We should know who we are. We should know how balanced or imbalanced – spiritually or emotionally – we are. There are physical diseases which we know the symptoms for, but what about the emotional, mental and behavioural diseases? These are the issues nobody knows how to deal with.
One change you will notice [after a successful Initiation of the Heart] is that on occasion, your heartbeats will rise, even when you are not engaged in physical activity. You may be sitting quietly in your armchair or laying in bed, and out of nowhere you will notice that your heartbeats have risen. Another sign you will notice is that you will feel extra heat in your chest. With that heat, you will feel peace, spiritual serenity, calm and relaxation. During your sleep, definitely the Satan would want to stop you [from the practice of repeating God’s name]. Satan would come and try to sit on your chest; suddenly, you will see that His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has come in front of you. Involuntarily, without you saying it with your tongue, you will hear your heart saying [God’s name]. This is to know that your heart has been initiated.
After Initiation of the Heart, you will cry in God’s love frequently. You will notice that your heart has now gotten softer. Instantly, you develop a hatred for sins. You would want to forgive everybody; you would want to be kind to everybody.
There are numerous symptoms, but these are the most prominent features that you will have as symptoms after the Initiation of the Heart is successful.
The purpose behind Initiation of the Heart is to produce divine energy.
The purpose of production of divine energy is to enlighten the spiritual heart (the entity known as Qalb).
The Koran said, ‘Satan runs through your bloodstream.’
The idea is that the heart should start producing divine energy, which is generated by the practice of synchronisation of God’s name in the heartbeats. This production of divine energy will mingle in your bloodstream and push out the ingredients of the devil. The entire body will have to go through this internal cleansing. It will take at least three years for the entire body to become purified and cleansed. The entire bloodstream will have to be cleansed with the help of this divine light.
It is difficult for some people to acknowledge that invocation has started in their heart, because even without it, you have throbbing in your heart. However, on the right side of your chest there is no heartbeat. If you feel beating either in the middle of the chest or right side of the chest, then it is the evidence that invocation has started in other souls also.
What is next?
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, ‘If your heart is initiated and enlightened, the heart itself will enlighten the entire spiritual and physical system of your entity.’
It will take time, however the Initiation of the Heart alone will render to your heart complete trust in God and faith in God. You will become an enlightened conscience.
