The Final Revolution
27th November 2016|Articles

The Final Revolution

The Final Revolution

Spirituality is accepted among all religions. However, every spiritual league of people seems to have a different perception about spirituality. Why do people who reject religions, adopt spirituality?

I have attended mind and body expos in many different countries of the world, including the USA, Canada, Holland, United Kingdom, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. I have met with thousands of people and spoken to many individuals who call themselves spiritualists.

The United States of America is a pioneer country in many fields. For example, there are many international American fast food chains such as KFC, TGI Fridays, Applebee’s, Chili’s and Pizza Hut. These companies made a fortune selling processed food.

American society got tired of eating processed foods. They grew bigger in size, so then [began] the trend of eating organic food. When they started getting bigger, they started exercising and thus gym goers began increasing in number.

Then spirituality was introduced and people fell for it. Many dozens of Hindu gurus came from India and they started to give lectures on spirituality. At the same time, they started to sell ‘spiritual’ products. For example, ‘Yogi Tea,’ which has nothing to do with yoga. A message was given by these spiritualists: for inner peace, peace of mind and relaxation, adopt spirituality. Yoga was declared to be a spiritual practice.

When I learnt about it, I was shocked. For the first time in my life, I was able to distinguish between this version of spirituality that I encountered in Edmonton, Canada. I sat down there in that expo booth and I wrote an article.

God is completely forgotten in this brand of spirituality. A deceptive concept has been hammered into the brains of innocent people in America. [They were told], ‘Your ego is your God. Take care of your ego and love yourself.’ There was no space for God.

I am not speaking in favour of any religion.

When Lord Jesus Christ publicly appears before everybody and wants a group of people to count on [to] go for Armageddon and defeat the Antichrist, will any of these spiritualists recognise and help Jesus?

I was shocked when Christians came to me and said, ‘We thought you were a spiritualist, but you are a religious man.’

I replied ‘How?’

They said, ‘You have the image of Lord Jesus Christ.’

I said, ‘So what?’

They said, ‘Jesus represents a religion, we don’t believe in any religion.’

I thought that there is a huge acceptance of spirituality among these people, but when I learnt what spirituality they have in mind, I was disturbed because with this concept of spirituality, they are not going to be able to love Jesus Christ.

With this brand of spirituality they will never seek God, let alone loving God.

The gurus who came from India have played havoc with the minds of people. Under the label of spirituality, there have been sexual scandals. It is not a secret anymore. Sexuality was labelled as spirituality.

When we started to tell people what spirituality really is, they were surprised to a degree where they were in a state of confusion [as to whether to believe us, or what they were told by the gurus from India].

We practise, propagate and project the purest form of spirituality.

We understand that, as the root word of spirituality is ‘spirit’, therefore, spirituality is to do with the awakening, enlightenment and purgation of the spirits.

Meditation is not about visualising a garden or visualising yourself flying. Meditation is a spiritual state in which your spirit is powerful enough to leave the body and make a spiritual journey; it is when it can successfully arrive at the realm where it belongs.

Upon these spiritual lines, one can be able to enter into the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is not a building or a city. The Kingdom of God is inside you. Your heart is the temple of God and this is where the Kingdom will be established. This is where the King will come and sit in your heart.

The Revolution of Love

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Towards the end times, the Sun will rise from the West.’

Like many other traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, the Muslims took it the wrong way. They are literally waiting for the Sun to rise from Seattle, USA, rather than Japan. This Prophetic Tradition is not about the [physical] Sun; it is about the Sun of God’s love, the Sun of spirituality — and it is rising!

The world has seen many different types of revolutions: communism, socialism, industrialism and capitalism. Now humanity is becoming weary of all these different types of slogans. Capitalism has manifested its ugliness and beauty. Communism has been rejected widely all over the world. Industrialism gave rise to capitalism, but the most horrible gift it gave was global warming [and pollution].

The world has seen all different types of revolutions and is now suffering in divisions. What humanity needs now is a final revolution: the revolution of love, the revolution of spirituality in which all the importance will be given to human beings.

With the help of science, we have gadgets such as iPhones and cameras. However, the ugliness of a human being remains the same.

Human beings have not progressed an inch. What we have worked on is our surroundings and the instruments we use.

Although we fly aeroplanes, we cannot fly. You combine Metal, gas and fuel and make an aeroplane that flies. However, you are greater than those ingredients you combined to make the aeroplane. You are a human being and you are the best of all creatures, so why can’t you fly?

You invented the telescope, but never worked on your eyes.

You have souls inside you, specially dedicated to improving your sight. With that improvement in your sight through spirituality, you won’t only be able to see the Moon or Mars, but you will be able to see God beyond this sky, the Milky Way, the realms and all these planets.

This is how far you can see with the help of the spiritual eye.

Now is the time to discover your obscure calibre. Now is the time to explore the divine potentials and credentials in you.

Explore yourself and know what capabilities have you been endowed by God. If you utilise all the spiritual potentials conferred onto you by God, you will understand one day that, ‘I am just a little lesser than God.’

You are in the State of Oblivion. You have ignored your own self and given more attention and importance to what is around you. What could you be if all the credentials God has conferred on you are utilised the right way? In order to do all this, we need a spiritual revolution.

This is why Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ have joined hands. Together, Lord Jesus and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will bring about this unprecedented, pioneering, rapturous, and amiable revolution of love.

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?
24th November 2016|Uncategorised

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How Does a Seeker Become Heedless of God?

How does a seeker become heedless of God?

The Prophet Mohammad said, ‘When somebody sins, the angels record the sin in the book of deeds and at the same time, places a black spot on the heart. With abundance of sins, one day the heart turns all dark. At this stage, no advice is effective on the sinner.’

The companions of Prophet Mohammad asked,  ‘What should be done at this stage to remove darkness from the heart?’

He replied, ‘There is a means of cleansing for everything; whereas for the heart, it is Dhikr Allah (Invocation of God’s Name).’

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?
17th November 2016|Articles

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

‘Mr Younus, Elon Musk said that there is a chance that we are living in a computer simulation. Are we? And are there multiple universes?’ — Mir Shahmir

It is a very delicate point. The world or the universe itself is not simulated by a computer. However, with the help of computer science, we can do a lot of things.

In a sense, science and technology have advanced to a degree where you can do things which may appear to be a miracle.

For example, we now have test-tube babies. If a woman doesn’t want to marry or touch a man, but she wants a baby, [she can have it by in vitro fertilisation]. She could take sperm from a donor, which could be injected into her body. This is what people can do today.

Science has advanced to a degree now where scientists are trying to outclass God.

It is a proven fact: even in the past, whenever — with the help of science, technology and whatever knowledge they had — human beings tried to interfere with the acts of God, God destroyed them.

There is a story about ancient Greek people in the Holy Book, The Religion of God (Divine Love). God commanded Gabriel to go and destroy them by flooding, so they quickly made walls of glass. They were saved because they were able to hear God. So then God asked Gabriel to destroy them by stoning. The glass was broken by the stones and they were destroyed.

You can’t play smart with God because he has all the power.

This intellect you have reflects God’s intelligence. So you may conclude that whatever you think, God will think along the same line. What you have in your head as intellect, it reflects the divine intellect.

People are now trying to interfere with God and his acts.

For example, let’s talk about cloning. The thing is, scientists can do anything, but what about the soul inside it? Obviously, as a result of that cloning process, there will be a living being identical [to the original], and that living being will definitely have terrestrial souls. However, there will not be any celestial souls, which will mean that the clone will not have the same level of intelligence as [the original has].* It will be deprived of emotions — hatred, love and everything else. What is the use of producing such a thing which is incapable of many human traits?

People are trying to be smarter than God, however they can never be. God is a genius as compared to us. We think he is a genius because he can do things we cannot. It is not possible for someone created by God to be [smarter than him]; if you were created by God, God would not give you the same level of intelligence he possesses himself. If somebody has more intelligence than God has, then that somebody must be from the Unseen World.

The way His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals secrets pertaining to the creation of this universe, to the creation of humankind, to the different species of Adam, to the different levels of intellectuality and to the different levels of spirituality — it is mind-boggling.

Revealing upon human beings what has been kept hidden by God and then declaring them to be the most obscure secrets of God — this can only come from HDE Gohar Shahi.

By far, HDE Gohar Shahi has exhibited through His acts and practice of love that whatever level of intelligence He has exhibited is far greater than the core intelligence of God.

This universe is simulated by a computer to a certain degree. But if you become divine and enlightened, you move your fingers and you will move mountains.

Forget about computer simulation. When you become a humble servant of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, then you will simulate the world with your finger.

Multiple Universes

For the sake of answering your question, I will say, ‘Yes there are many different types of universe.’ But then again, you’re not able to practically go and witness it, so what is the point in discussing it? Unless you’re planning to apply to HDE Gohar Shahi to become His servant — because only then can you possibly witness existence of other types of universe.

We’re living on a single little planet, Earth, and we do not intend to explore every single planet that is floating in this universe. We have not been given the potential of migrating from one planet to another. Man set his foot on the Moon only after the Final Hour, when all the living beings on the Moon were destroyed by God. As long as people lived there, human beings who lived on this planet were not able to go and witness their counterparts [on the Moon].

We can only fly from Pakistan to India, India to Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka to America, Canada, Australia etc. We cannot possibly migrate from one planet to another, especially the planets which are currently inhabited by human beings like ourselves. The planet we are living on is not a secure place. Countries of this planet only think of their own safety. However [other] planets have been made secure but their inhabitants.

Migration from one universe to another is not physically possible for you. I am not saying that it is not physically possible at all; it is possible provided you have the means of travel and ability to switch from your type of oxygen to their type of oxygen. But you don’t have this facility and ability.

On this planet, water is made of two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. Maybe [on another planet], there are three molecules hydrogen with oxygen which forms water. The chemical equation of our water is H2O; maybe on Mars, it is H3O.

It is interesting that the Sun is the ultimate source of hydrogen; the Sun is shining on the seas and rivers. Even then, the water does not absorb more than two molecules of hydrogen from the sun-rays. This is because the oxygen of this world has only two ports of radicals; maybe oxygen [of another planet] is different and has four ports of radicals.

This universe is vast and it is such a shame that you cannot travel. Some people are born in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan; they live all their lives in those countries and they die. There are still some people in India and Pakistan haven’t seen a train, let alone traveling in an airplane. We live in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, etc. even then, I never imagined myself traveling in a spaceship and going to the Moon.

Hopping into other universes is least possible even to imagine. However [things change] when you are a disciple of HDE Gohar Shahi. Firstly, you do not become a disciple by simply saying that you want to or [paying a fee].

You become HDE Gohar Shahi’s disciple when your soul is infused with HDE Gohar Shahi and you become a citizen of the extra-celestial Unseen World. That is the culmination of all that exists. When you reach the culmination of all that exists today, then migrating from one universe to another is child’s play.

When you reach the culmination of the farthest place that can exist — something you can’t even imagine — then migration from one universe to another is not a problem. Right now, you are caged by gravitational force. As a result of gravity, you can’t go anywhere. Speed is the resistance against gravity. You apply force and power; then you [move]. What happens when you go into space? There is no gravity; [so if] you don’t apply force, you just float.

Let me just end it on this note: it is possible to simulate the universe partially with the help of a [scientifically advanced] computer, but it would not be a full throttle simulation. Secondly, there are different types of universe — but then, seeing is believing. I can tell you many things, but if you’re not able to witness it, it is like fiction to you.

If you become worthy spiritually, you can travel from one universe to another. However, do not forget: the Quran has mentioned that whatever is between the skies and earth belongs to God; so God is only talking about this universe. It will [probably] never happen — but for the sake of answering your question, if you happen to set your foot in another universe, do not forget that that universe has a different creator.

Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of India, not the entire world. The United Kingdom has a different Prime Minister. When you go to Canada, they have a different Prime Minister. When you set your foot in another universe, you’ll have to find out who its creator is.

There are different types of universe but all these different planets in this universe were created by God. Quran 4:131 states, ‘To God belongs whatever is between the land and skies.’ This is about this particular universe that we are living in.

*According to the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, a human being is a compound creature made up of multiple spirits. The body is made of terrestrial souls which are responsible for things like its growth and appearance. The terrestrial souls have nothing to do with the higher realms.

What makes humanity different from animals is the presence of the celestial souls in them, which bring in them human emotions and sense. The celestial souls are what give man the potential to discover divinity. Learn all about the celestial spirits in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential
1st November 2016|Articles

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential

Self-realisation is a very profound subject, because your Self has different dimensions. You are not a single soul living; you’re a multi-spiritual being. Discovery of each soul has its own respective realisation, so self-realisation is a multi-layered realisation.

Not everybody is fully aware of who he is. They may have gone through vigorous spiritual austerities and acquired higher stages and statuses in spirituality, however when it comes to measuring the volume of self-realisation, it has always been incomplete.

In self-realisation, you start with your Carnal Self (Nafs) and you purify it. Then you come to know the purpose and use of this soul in you. You learn exactly what you should do to make it functional in your body.

Each soul has different functions. Some functions help you with your physical body and other spiritual functions will help you progress in your spiritual journey.

Knowing what functions one respective soul has is the realisation of what you have. For example, you may have a car, but if you don’t know what you use the car for, you don’t have car-realisation.

The Carnal Self is in your body but you do not know its functions. Realisation begins when you activate this particular soul that lies inactive in you, when you’re fully aware of its abilities and capabilities; not just that, but also you know how to master your Carnal Self, how to use it and how to perform spiritual journeys with it.

Realisation will go further up once you have attained the utter spiritual purity and cleansing of your Carnal Self. From there, you progress toward the purification of your spiritual heart. Having purified and revived the spiritual faculty of the heart, you will then come to know its functions.

Most Sufis only know about revival, awakening and enlightenment.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi doesn’t only talk about the enlightenment, revival and purification; Lord Ra Riaz also teaches the functions of the spiritual heart. He tells you exactly what you can do with the help of the spiritual heart.

For example, Lord Ra Riaz oftentimes talks about the first function of the spiritual heart as being a telephone operator when it is fully enlightened. You will be able to be in contact with God via one of the functions of the spiritual heart.

Your heart will become a mouthpiece with which you will be able to communicate with God.

Realisation is about obtaining enlightenment, purification, revival and on top of that, the usage. If you know what it is but you cannot use it, what is the point? In my understanding, the spiritual calibre of knowing and utilising the functions is realisation of the self.

There are seven souls in you. You should know what each soul can do for you, how each soul will push you towards God and what level of spiritual journey can be performed with what individual soul.

All these souls have their own functions; becoming a master and being able to learn all the functions is complete realisation of the self. You are not confined to your Carnal Self; your main self is your soul.

You should know what your soul can do, what your spiritual heart can do, what Sirri (The Most Obscure) can do and what Akhfah (The Most Hidden) can do.

Revival and enlightenment is one thing, but then to be able to use the souls well according to their purpose is true realisation.

For example, if your Akhfah is enlightened and you also know the functions, then you don’t need a telephone. You’ll just think about someone, you’ll speak and that person will hear you no matter where he is.

There were no loudspeakers in the past. People say that there used to be 70 000 attendees who would come to the lectures of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (a renowned Sufi). There was no system of loudspeakers or sound system; even then, every single person in his attendance would clearly hear his speech. People declared it a miracle. It is a miracle, but nothing just happens without a system, even miracles. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani would lessen the usage of his tongue and increase the amount of his Akhfah; so on a distance, people would hear him well. However, this was a one-time miracle.

We have seen more miracles than this in every speech delivered by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. There was no sound system, yet Lord Ra Riaz would be speaking and [His voice] would be echoing. This was the Akhfah.

Most spiritualists from different religions only know about enlightening and reviving the souls; they are not aware of what you can do with the souls. Through the Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love, we learned the functions of the souls.

To summarise: there are seven respective souls in the body. Enlightening, awakening and purifying them, making them functional and reaching your destination with the help of these functions is the main thing. This is complete self-realisation.

The Standards of God’s Love
31st October 2016|Uncategorised

The Standards of God’s Love

It has been evident that God set strange and peculiar standards of love. Calamity, trouble, deprivation and self-denial were elements of love. People opted to adopt rituals of the religions rather than going through self-discipline and purgation. The Standards of Love set by God were so high that people did not feel encouraged to go for it. God’s love has never gained popularity among religious people.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Minjanib Allah Hidayat Par Kaun Hai?
11th October 2016|LecturesVideos

#AskYounusAlGohar | Minjanib Allah Hidayat Par Kaun Hai?

Younus AlGohar answers a question from a viewer about the technicalities involved in performance of worship whilst facing the Kaaba (in Mecca). Whilst doing so, he explains how God grants guidance.

Main points:

– As long as your heart is not connected with God and directed towards God, you’ll need to respect the pointer that is the Kaaba. The destination is not the Kaaba; the destination is God. When your heart is enlightened and directed towards God, then you can face anywhere and perform Salat (worship). When God is in you, you will be greater than the Kaaba – the Kaaba is just stone whereas man has the potential to be the greatest of all creation. When God is in you, the Kaaba will circumbulate you.

– In the first instance when you’re being guided, your heart generates divine energy (Noor). That divine energy will first clean your heart, and then if your heart is fully enlightened, the divine energy will enter your bloodstream. As long as the divine energy generated in the heart is only enough to take care of the needs of the heart, you will be known as just a Momin (true believer), but your heart won’t be directed to God.

– The prayer mentioned in Quran 1:6-7 is for those who have already awakened their heart, but they want God to turn their hearts towards him (and reach the stage of Qalb-e-Muneeb). This verse is asking God to take them towards the blessing of seeing God. For Momins, the heartbeats are the legs through which you walk on the Straight Path. The second part of this prayer asks God to not put them on the path of those who have earned his anger. Those people have earned his anger who worship God and invoke his name whilst ignoring the conditions he has put on them to do so – namely, they have not awakened their souls and they have ignored spiritual knowledge. God does not accept the worship of the people in whose fate he has not written faith.

– Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi has explained how to recognise if God has guided someone. God guides the heart. It is not your fleshy heart that God guides. It is the spiritual heart that sits atop the fleshy heart. There are 180 000 veils on top of the heart that do not get burnt through worship, fasting etc. To awaken the heart, you need the merciful sight of the spiritual guide, which will burn those veils. The spiritual guide will implant the seed of God’s name in your heart. Then the repetition of God’s name in your heart will begin. This is guidance from God.

– Guidance from God is not given without God’s permission. Before the spiritual guide implants the seed of God’s name in the aspirant’s heart, he takes his likeness to the court of God. God asks, ‘Why have you brought him?’ The spiritual guide replies, ‘He wants to befriend you.’ Then if God is in the mood to guide the aspirant, he will investigate his beliefs and actions. After being completely satisfied, God will command that his heart be initiated with God’s name. Then the spiritual guide, with God’s permission, will implant the seed of God’s name in the heart of the aspirant.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Ibadat Ke Bawajood Aaj Ka Musalman Maghloob Kiyon Hai!
8th October 2016|LecturesVideos

#AskYounusAlGohar | Ibadat Ke Bawajood Aaj Ka Musalman Maghloob Kiyon Hai!

Younus AlGohar speaks on the misconceptions about God’s love that most Muslims have.

Main points:

– The main goal of every religion has been God’s love. There is a misconception about divine love: people think their worship and fasting is proof of their love for God. However if we ask them, ‘If you wife does everything for you, is that a guarantee that she loves you?’ So then how are your prayers, fasting and giving of alms guarantors of your love for God? It may be that your wife cleans your clothes, looks after your kids and cooks and cleans because she lives in your house; if she doesn’t you might divorce her. Similarly you might worship to avoid hell.

– If Muslims would become a lover of God from worship, why are they separated into different denominations? The first condition in Islam, the core of the religion, is declaration by the tongue and affirmation by the heart – which Muslims today don’t have. Their hearts don’t have divine energy; they don’t have faith.

– Proof that Muslims today are not Momineen (true believers): according to the Quran, God said they would be dominant upon the world as long as they were Momineen. Today, Muslims are not dominant upon the world; rather they are suffering. This proves they are not Momineen.

#AskYounusAlGohar | Love Of God: Core Of Every Religion

Mohammad Burhan via email said, ‘Sir, i want to convert to Sufism and my wish is to join [HDE] Gohar Shahi. Help me please, how can I convert to Sufism? Please reply to me.’

Shehzad Rafiq Chatta asked via Facebook messenger, ‘Raiwind Tableeghi Group look like a group of saints and use extremely soft words. But they also support Taliban, Jesh-e-Muhammad, etc. I am an eyewitness and I know many such preachers who denounced terrorism in lectures but promote Taliban in mutual gatherings. Are these preachers, and Tariq Jameel also a part of the Dajjal?  Is Raiwind a nursery for the Taliban? My humble opinion is that Tableeghi Jamat Raiwind is part of Dajjal because they hate all followers of spiritualism.’

When you ask me questions about spirituality, then I speak on the subject of spirituality without hesitation, freely – because I am discussing knowledge. I am not commenting on people. It is a very difficult job to comment on individuals. You cannot comment on people that you don’t know, that you have not ever met; you cannot comment if you have no information about their character and belief system. If this is the case, then I do not comment on individuals. It is not my job. I will not be doing justice with who I am by commenting on somebody that I am not aware of, or commenting on somebody whose religious background and belief system is not known to me.

I cannot comment on a person that I do not personally know. However individuals who are famous, their creed system, belief system, religious denomination and affiliations are prominent, and what they believe is available in books, on the internet, in their lectures and videos – [I can comment on them]. I can comment on individuals who either cause to create chaos among Muslims and among people of other religions; those who promote hatred among religions.

Obviously, some of these religious seminaries are so cunning and clever that they will use soft words to attract you. They will be gently spoken, but you wouldn’t be able to see that they’re holding a dagger behind their back. Very discreetly and quietly, they will hammer into your brain some abhorred, admonishable beliefs which will eat up your trust in Prophet Mohammad and your faith in God. In no time, you will find yourself confused with the belief system that you have always practised, the belief system of your ancestral lineage.

Certain things have become prominent in the last couple of decades especially in Southeast Asia – for example India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. These are three countries where there have been a lot of saintly individuals who have acquired a higher spiritual status in the eyes of God. Who were able to communicate with God, who were able to show you the right path following divine delegation. Throughout these three countries for centuries, people would follow mystical doctrine: the doctrine of spirituality, love, Sufism.

Sufis starting from Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani to Moulana Jalaluddin Rumi, from Moulana Rumi to Khwaja Gharib un Nawaz of Ajmer Sharif. From Ajmer Sharif to Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi. From Delhi to Adjhodan, Pakpattan Sharif in Pakistan [where Baba Farid lived]. From Baba Farid to Lahore, [where Data Ali Hajweri lived]. These were the individuals who practically and perfectly secured their heart against all evil. They purgated their Carnal Self (Nafs), they introduced their Carnal Self through divine energy to practical spiritual obedience to God. When they stopped sinning, they did stop sinning because they did not have the desire to sin anymore, not because the law of Sharia did not allow them to do it. They were able to personally abhor bad deeds; they eliminated all  elements of evil from themselves. This came after vigorous austerity, a lot of struggle against their own self. In order to purify themselves, they refrained from all sorts of comforts whether those comforts were allowed by the religion or not allowed by the religion.

They turned their face away from different types of comforts just to practically and perfectly find divine proximity; nearness to God.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi uttered out a historical formula. He said, ‘If you want God’s nearness and are seeking God’s proximity, the only way to finding God’s nearness is through God’s love.

If you will ever find God’s nearness, that will be through God’s love. Your ultimate goal is to know how to love God. God’s love is the central idea of every divinely ordained celestial book, whether it be the Torah, the Bible or the Quran revealed upon Prophet Mohammad.

The central idea of every celestial book is God’s love and God’s love is something that will let you please God instantly.

According to the Quran, no matter how dedicated and great a sinner you are, God promises to wash away all your sins should you manage to love God. 

God’s love is the central idea of any monotheistic religion.

In every religion, the dispensary of God’s love was the appointed messenger of that religion.

For example, the followers of Abraham were to find God’s love through Abraham’s divine mediumship. To the Christians, the divine dispensary of God’s love is Lord Jesus Christ. That is why the Bible says, ‘Only through me, you will go to the Father.’

Do not make an error here. This verse from the Bible that says that you will reach the Father only through Jesus is confined to Christians – not to the Jews, Muslims or any other religion. In a similar way, for Muslims, the dispensary of divine love is Prophet Mohammad.

The Quran 3:31 said, ‘Prophet Mohammad, tell them: if you want to love God, then imitate me.’

The translation is not, ‘Do as I do,’ rather the true translation and meaning of [the last words in this verse] is, ‘Be like I am.’

If offering Salat, fasting, growing a beard can be Sunnahs (Customs of the Prophet), then is being like Prophet Mohammad not a Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad? According to a beautiful Prophetic Tradition, ‘You will be like the one that you love.’

To love God is not a secret. Everybody will nod his head in positive. The problem is, they think they love God, but at the same time they love their wife, children, and mother and father also. The calamity upon calamity is that they love the [worldly luxuries] and money also.. They love being bad and being corrupt also.

It is not humanly possible to believe which acts of theirs is true. Are they true in their love for their parents, their children, their wives or their God? Which love is true when they love everybody? Then we will have to see in 24 hours of a day, where does most of their time go to – to God, their wife, children, towards earning money or towards slashing throats of innocents?

Look at these terrorists: how can one assume a murderer, a killer who is slaying innocent people will be accepted by God for paradise? Paradise not for terrorists. God has created paradise for peaceful people.

God’s love is the main theme of the religion.

Somebody asked, ‘I want to convert to Sufism.’ You don’t need conversion. Sufism is not a sect or religion.

Calling Sufism a sect or religion is a grave insult to Sufism. All regions are in need of spirituality; without spirituality no religion is valid.

Sufism is the soul of the religion and any religion in which the spiritual system has collapsed, that religion has collapsed; the followers of that religion scattered into many different groups, sects and denominations. The religion stopped rendering spiritual grace to its followers.

Sufism is enlightenment of the soul. Sufism doesn’t care whether you are a Christian, Jew, Hindu or Muslim. In order to become a Sufi you don’t need to change your religion. All you need to do is enlighten your soul and heart.

The heart is the place of love. When the seed of God’s name is transmitted into the chambers of the heart and the soul which is sitting on the heart is divinely triggered and activated, that soul will wake up. When the angel that sits on the fleshy heart – which is known as the spiritual heart (Qalb) – is awakened, that soul will do nothing else but repeat God’s name. The repetition of God’s name doesn’t stop because the heart doesn’t need to breathe.

In order to make divine energy, you have to say God’s name at least 101 times nonstop. If you do it with your tongue, you can never make divine energy. However, the heart doesn’t have to breathe; it doesn’t have kids, a wife, father or mother; it doesn’t go to a job. The heart is neither is it Punjabi, Pathan or Mahajir. The heart is the dwelling of God.

[According to famous poetry], ‘If you must, then demolish a mosque, temple or church, but you must never hurt anybody’s heart because the heart is the dwelling of God.’

When you hurt such a heart, God will be wrathful upon you.

Sufism tells you how to love God and what organ in your body should be engaged in the activity of God’s love. God’s love is not done through imagination. It is not about visualisation, concentration or meditation; it is an activity. When this activity takes place, God’s light is generated within the heart. That light will start to travel towards God. When that light reaches God, you are connected. That connection between your heart and God is actually God’s love.

God said in the Quran 2:152, ‘When you remember me, I shall remember thee.’

It is give and take. You never care about God, never want to know or love God, but when you are up against some kind of adversity, in trouble, then you cry. Then you hold a rosary and you ask religious people, ‘I’m stuck in trouble. How many times should I remember God in order for this trouble to go away?’ You’re there for a reason; you’re a selfish worshipper. You do not remember God for love; you do not remember God for the sake of remembering God. You remember God because you are in pain.

There is a saying from a Hindu saint, Sant Kabir, ‘When you are in pain, you remember God. When you are happy, you forget God. If you remembered God while you are happy, fool, the trouble would never come to you. You read all the books of the world but you did not become a saint of God. If you read two-and-a-half words of love you would have become a saint of God.’

It is all about love. Sufism teaches you how to love God genuinely.

The State of Pakistan and Its Future

If you do not know spirituality, you will just claim, ‘I love God,’ and God is not convinced. All these Muslims say that they love God, but why are they in trouble? How can it be that you love God, God loves you – yet you are crying with pain? How can it be that you love God and God loves you, yet you are dying every day; you have cancer, you don’t have clean water to drink, you don’t have gas in your stoves, you don’t have electricity and your milk is not pure. You go to a meat market, buy a lamb, eat it and find out that it was actually a donkey.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan (a Muslim-majority country) is corrupt: he is the second most corrupt man in the world. Islamic scholars are corrupt. Their politicians, teachers, and actors are corrupt. For example, Ayyan Ali was a model, a spinster for Asif Ali Zardari (a Pakistani politician); she was caught red handed at the airport carrying a huge amount of US dollars – $300 000 in cash. The businessmen in Pakistan are corrupt. [Pakistanis] are killing Shias, Sunnis and Sufis yet they all love God. There are at least 140 million Muslims in Pakistan alone and they all claim to love God.

Prophet Mohammad was leader of an army of 313 people; yet they were dominant. Why? Because their leader was Prophet Mohammad and the followers were all true believers (Momineen).

[Some Muslims today claim be to true believers but they are] raping 2-4 month old babies. They’re 40 and they want to marry 13-year-olds. This is not Islam. This is corruption.

In Pakistan, democracy is an excuse to do more and more corruption.

With what the politicians have done to Pakistan, Pakistan should have been destroyed long ago. There is a divine hand on this country, which is saving the country. The time is coming soon when this divine hand will show up his entire body and Pakistan will be the leader of God’s love.

This country will lead the world and establish peace and love all over the world. No matter what religion you practise, they will teach you how to love God. Terrorism, hatred and racism will diminish. This time is not far.
