The Revolution of Love | Inqilab-e-Ishq

Younus AlGohar talks about human history in an unprecedented way. He talks the audience through the different revolutions that humanity has experienced and why they only occurred in the last 6000 years. He gives glad-tidings of the Revolution of Love that will occur with the bounty of the Awaited One Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.

Main points:
⁃ A revolution is when new teachings come that completely change the norms of society and norms of spirituality. Many revolutions have come but in the modern era, whatever spiritual and religious revolutions have come have been rendered moot. Humanity is now back at its prehistoric status, the stage it was at before the arrival of Adam the Eminent One.

⁃ God sent 14 000 Adams. 13 999 of these Adams were made with the clay of this world and they didn’t have knowledge of spirituality. Their worship was done with the body. In the era before Adam the Eminent One’s arrival, if somebody adopted a religion, the only difference was that they would start to worship. Their character would not be changed. Your character is directly linked to your Nafs (Self) and Qalb (spiritual heart); if your Nafs is getting purified and your Qalb is getting enlightened with God’s name, you’ll be inclined towards God.

⁃ Adam the Eminent One came 6000 years ago, but this world has existed for billions of years. Adam the Eminent One’s arrival was foretold by the previous Adams, who were told that in the final era, a special Adam would be sent. Adams before Adam Safi Allah would just worship, but they did not know if their worship was accepted by God. They would force themselves not to sin, but the desire to sin was not removed from inside them. Finally, when Adam the Eminent One was sent, angels were told to make his body in heaven. Angels objected to the creation of Adam the Eminent One, citing the war, bloodshed and mischief that all the previous 13 999 Adams had all been involved in. God replied that Adam the Eminent One would be given the knowledge of eminence. God gave Adam the Eminent One the knowledge of how to generate divine energy from God’s names.

⁃ God gave different names to his prophets and messengers. David got the name Ya Wadood while Moses got Ya Rehman, which are related to different attributes of God. Mohammad got the Personal Name of God, Allah, which took him straight to the Person of God. All of God’s names are good.

⁃ Through Adam the Eminent One, the first revolution was brought to humanity: people were able to get connected to God and purify their Nafs and Qalb. Now, man’s voice would reach God. The second revolution was when God spoke to Moses; now, man was able to hear God’s voice. The greatest revolution was when Mohammad introduced the knowledge of seeing God. Unfortunately, this revolution was suppressed because of mischief that took place in Islam. Mohammad’s knowledge of seeing God and his knowledge of spirituality were suppressed by scholars and even companions of the Prophet as well as his wife, Aisha. To become part of Mohammad’s greatest revolution, you have to start adopting the revolutionary knowledge of Adam and so on. This is why God made it obligatory upon all Muslims to believe in all the prophets and messengers.

⁃ Today, people have forgotten the knowledge of eminence. No matter what religion you follow or what race you belong to, if you do not have the knowledge of eminence, then you are no different from the Adams who predated Adam the Eminent One because you are all dark by the heart. Imam Mehdi Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has introduces spiritual knowledge today in a form that the world has never seen before. With this spiritual knowledge, you can know yourself. You can find out what you chose for yourself in the Primordial Times and what your ultimate destiny is.

#AskYounusAlGohar: Images on Hajre Aswad

I want to tell the world that the holy place known as the Holy Cubicle (Kaaba) is for everybody. It is for Christians, Hindus, Jews and Muslims. Currently, the Saudi Royal Family has disallowed all other religions for except Muslims to pay pilgrimage and homage to the holy place.

God has a plan according to which people of all religions soon will be able to travel to the Holy Cubicle.

Due to the Holy Black Stone, which was brought by Adam and is fixed in the Holy Cubicle, it is a holy place. The image of Jesus has become prominent in the stone, which simply suggests that this is sacred for Christians also. The image of Mother Mary is also prominent on the Holy Black Stone.

According to the divine plan, the image of Moses is also prominent on the Holy Black Stone, which means the Jewish people can come. This stone is sacred not only for Muslims and Christians, but also for the Jewish community.

Then the image of Durga Maa is also prominent on the Holy Black Stone which means this Holy Black Stone is sacred for not just one religion, but for many religions.

The Holy Black Stone has the image of Lord Jesus Christ, which means all those who believe in Jesus have the right to visit that place.

This image is not painted by human beings; it is the work of God, the act of God.

Not only does this Holy Black Stone have the image of Durga Maa, Mother Mary, Lord Jesus Christ, Moses and Mohammad, but also Ali. And not just that — this Holy Black Stone has the image of God and also another four members of the Community of God.

Images of four members of the Community of God are visible; they’re standing behind the Awaited One Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s image in the Holy Black Stone.

This Holy Black Stone will be greatly helpful to establish the fact that the entire humanity should convert to One United Nation (a universal brotherhood) that will love God and God will love them.

#AskYounusAlGohar: Was Hitler A Zionist?
7th May 2016|LecturesVideos

#AskYounusAlGohar: Was Hitler A Zionist?

Question: On LBC, Ken Livingston said that Hitler was a Zionist. I heard that some Jews also say. Many people say he read the Quran then killed 6 million Jews.

So he got the idea from the Quran? Come on.

Hitler did the Holocaust and it was his own perception and idea. He was a Christian; he was not a Zionist.

In Germany, even the women are well-built and tall. What he did was he collected all the tall men and all the tall women; he asked them to sleep together and produce children without marriage, so that he could have a new race. This was his idea and it did not come from the Quran.

Any Jew who becomes an extremist becomes a Zionist. You cannot say a Christian is a Zionist.

Jews are very good people. Those who practise Kabbalah are wonderful people. Similarly, Christians are good people.

There is a bad apple in every garden and a bad fish in every pond. In a similar way, there are good and bad people in every religion.

There are bad people among Muslims, Christians and Jews but not everybody is bad. If somebody is bad, don’t think his religion is bad. Individuals can be bad; religions are not bad.

Christianity, Judaism and Islam are not bad. If some bad person is practising Islam, then that bad person is bad; not Islam. Similarly, if some Jews are bad, it doesn’t mean the religion is bad. It is about individuals.

Because the conjecture about Islam has gone bad, now people are attributing all sorts of bad things to Islam and the Quran. You need to call a spade a spade; you can’t paint anything in your own colour and say, ‘This is bad.’

How come Islam did not inspire people in the 1400 years to carry out carnage and become savages who do not let anybody live?

I’ll tell you something. According to the Jewish beliefs, God promised them the Promised Land. God is supposed to grant them the possession of that land, so [they should] leave it to God. God will do it.

If you are making efforts, promoting militancy and you are trying to take the responsibility of God in your own hands by trying to acquire that land by force, you are not Jewish. You are manipulating the words of God.

Let God give it to you. Why are you trying to do it yourself? Let God do what only God can do. God wouldn’t make a promise if you were able to do it yourself.

If God thought it was a very small, petty issue, he would have said, ‘Make and effort, you can do it.’ God would not be bothered to make a promise if you were capable to retain the land. God did not say that; God said, ‘I will return it to you and that is my promise.’ God does honour his promises. He doesn’t make fake, empty hollow promises.

When God promised them the land, it simply means they were not capable of retaining that land. So God took the responsibility of retaining that land and giving it back to them.

These people who are making efforts and promoting militancy and terrorism can never be successful. The time will soon come when, on behalf of God, [Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi] will fulfil the promises.

#AskYounusAlGohar: Did Umar Khattab Attack Fatima Zahra?

#AskYounusAlGohar: Did Umar Khattab Attack Fatima Zahra?

A Sunni man asked, ‘Where is it written that Umar bin Khattab pulled sword on Prophet Mohammad when he was sick? Umar bin Khattab pushed Bibi Fatima, who then died after 6 months due to poisoning. Bibi Fatima was thrown out of her home which was gifted to her by her father.’

[She was not gifted a] home. It was a garden.

This has been narrated by Companions of the Prophet. All Muslims consider the Prophetic Traditions (Ahadith) in the Bukhari Sharif to be the most authentic Prophetic Traditions. This is in one of those Bukhari Prophetic Traditions.

There was a quarrel. As soon as Umar bin Khattab became the caliph, he summoned the daughter of the Prophet, Fatima. He said, ‘The Garden of Fidak is property of Islam; it is not your property so you need to return it. Bibi Fatimi replied, ’It was gifted to me by my father.’ So this is in Prophetic Traditions.

When he was demanding Bibi Fatima to withdraw possession of that garden and the conversation became heated, he got really emotional and angry. He was an unreasonably angry person. Out of anger, he pushed Fatima tul Zahra and she fell on the door. There was a big nail in that door and that nail went into her stomach.

So it was a foreign object made of iron and it went inside. When you go into surgery, the equipment they use is all sterilised. They are made of stainless steel and they cannot be rusted. The nail went into her stomach, there was a big wound and it started bleeding. The body was entirely poisoned. 6 months after this incident, she died. This is recorded in Prophetic Traditions.

Even the scholars of Deoband narrate this story – not just Sunnis and Shias.

Dysfunctionality of Religions
15th April 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Dysfunctionality of Religions

Religions have become futile and have stopped functioning. When such a thing happens to a religion, it happens due to lack of spiritual knowledge.

It is not the bodies which the religions address, rather, the religions provide your souls with activation and initiation of awakening and enlightenment. What you do in mosques, churches and synagogues is a customary, ritualistic performance of worship.

The real worship which God has entwined with your souls can only be performed by your souls.

When the religions happen to suffer from fallacy and inability to manoeuvre the souls of its followers, the religions become futile. They do not function in relation to awakening and enlightenment of the souls.

Whether or not a religion is still valid totally depends on whether it is able to connect its followers with God.

If a religion has thousands of followers and they perform a physical form of worship in mosques, temples, synagogues, churches and other worship places, however their hearts are still dark — their character has not been entwined with moral and ethical values; their souls have been unknown to the attributes of God; the souls have not learned to be compassionate; the souls are unknown to the most auspicious, powerful and supreme attribute of God: love — then the religion has become futile.

Similitude of these religions are on the vital organs of a human being.

The function of the heart is to pump the blood, oxygenate it and purify it. However, if the arteries around the heart have accumulated a lot of cholesterol, toxins and free radicals, which release after the food is digested in the stomach, the performance of the heart decreases and with the passage of time, it deteriorates. A time comes when all the arteries leading to the heart become completely blocked. This is when the pulmonary valve that sits on top of the heart stops beating. The moment the heart stops beating, you expire.

To be honest with you, it is not about the ‘bad’ or ‘good’ of any religion. When Sanatan Dharma, the Hindu religion, was still alive, it was a good religion. When Judaism was still alive, functioning well and connecting people with God, it was good.

Everything that God has created in this world is mortal. Every mortal object has to expire at one point in time. In this phenomenal world, the bitterest of all truths is mortality. You cannot escape mortality.

Sixteen years ago, I would walk on the treadmill with an incline of fifteen for two hours every day. Recently, I have tried to do the same again, but I couldn’t do it. I realise that it is a lot to do with wear and tear. I do not have the same strength in my muscles and the same stamina in my body. The moment we take birth in this world, our journey to mortality begins.

Everything is mortal — and so are the religions.

We are mortal and the religion we follow is mortal. If religions were immortal, we would not need another. One religion would have been enough. The very fact that there are so many religions tells us that every religion which has been established by prophets via revelation from God is a mortal religion. After some time, through the passage of wear and tear, the religion came to an end.

When you follow a religion and you reach nowhere, it should ring the bell. The voice of your conscience does whistle in your heart, ‘You’re not getting anywhere. You’re circulating around one fixed point.’

In the olden times, when people would want to extract oil from almonds and olives, they would put a round shaped pot with a stick in it and tie it to a bull; the bull would go in circles and grind it. The bull would make a thousand circles but not reach anywhere. In a similar way, we are following our religions, but they’re not taking us anywhere because they are not making any journey. They have come to a total expiration.

Muslims shouldn’t be astounded or taken aback by the fact that Islam can die. Islam is not greater than Prophet Mohammad. A time came when Prophet Mohammad departed this world. According to the Quran, everything is mortal except God. God has excluded everything else for except him when he talked about immortality. Islam has come to an expiration. You cannot see Islam anywhere today. What you see today is Wahhabism, Sunnism, Barelvism, Shiaism; they are not Muslims, because the religion of Islam does not exist anymore.

Prophet Mohammad came and went back. Prophet Adam came and went back. If somebody comes and tells me, ‘I am Adam,’ I will say, ‘Shut up. He came and went back.’

Similarly, there is no rebirth of any religion.

When Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani revived the religion of Islam almost a thousand years ago, Islam was still breathing. It was not completely dead. Now, however, Islam is dead. There is no ‘rebirth’ of any religion. When the religion is completely dead, it is dead because God wanted it to be dead. If God wanted the religion of Islam to be revived again, then God would have sent somebody to help Islam before its demise.

There is no planning from God, according to which, the religion of Islam might have been revived.

All the religions are now expired. Humanity is on the brink of death. When the vital organs fail and do not function, either you simply close your eyes and die, or you go for the transplant.

Messiah Foundation International has been blessed to announce to the world that we have a spiritual transplant. All the vital religions of the world which have expired are now being replaced with the Religion of God.

A new system and religion. This religion is the Religion of God, therefore it is immortal like God. This religion does not apply to the bodies; it applies to your souls. The soul doesn’t die and this religion does not die.

The Religion of God is God’s lifestyle. You will become a member of the Religion of God as soon as you successfully adopt the lifestyle of God: the way God behaves and conducts himself. The way God manifests his compassion, showers his mercy on all human beings equally and opens the door upon humanity for his bounty. He is most forgiving, caring and loving.

You will become divine all of a sudden. You will not need to learn his attributes.

When God comes inside your heart and your heart becomes an eternal dwelling of God, then God will manifest his attributes inside you. You will begin to live like God does. This is the Religion of God.

All these religions have expired. The religion of Islam has been grossly subjected to mischief and religious corruption. Humanity is suffering at the hands of Islamists today. If an animal dies and it is lying there, after a couple of days, the place will stink and everybody will suffer. Similarly, the religion of Islam has died and people are suffering. The religions which were made by prophets have come to an end.

The Religion of God has not been established by any prophet or through any revelation. This religion existed even when there was no religion, prophet or messenger. The Religion of God is older than Prophet Adam and Prophet Mohammad.

The Original Sin & True Baptism
28th March 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

The Original Sin & True Baptism

Good Friday is a very important day in Christianity, as it is believed by the entire Christendom that Lord Jesus, Son of God, died on the cross for the sins of his followers. This is considered to be the main pillar in Christianity. The entire Christian belief revolves around this belief.

When a baby is born in a Christian home, it is baptised; this is how the life starts of a Christian. Baptism is very important according to the Christian faith. When the baby is born, he is born with original sin. Through baptism, that sin is removed from the baby. In the olden times, baptism was carried out by putting the baby down in water. Now, the priest may sprinkle drops of holy water on the baby to baptise it.

Original Sin

What Christianity said is not wrong. However, there has to be an explanation. Original sin comes from Adam when he went against the will of God. God said to him, ‘Do not touch this tree,’ and he did. Sin, itself, doesn’t have to be an act that is bad in nature. Rather, sin is disobedience.

For example, a baby is sleepy and the mother says to the baby, ‘Don’t sleep.’ The mother has her plans; if the baby sleeps now, then the mother won’t be able to sleep later. To sleeping is not bad; but the mother said, ‘Do not sleep,’ so if the baby sleeps, this is disobedience.

Anything, as long as God does not forbid you from doing it, is okay.

For example, some Jews and Christians believe that Prophet Mohammad is from an illegitimate offspring of Abraham; because Ishmael, Abraham;s other son, was born to a concubine. Such people need to understand God must have allowed Abraham to keep a woman as a concubine, without marriage. When a common man does that, he is not allowed by God to do it; therefore it is a sin. However, God allowed Abraham to do it, so it is not a sin. Therefore, this concept that Prophet Mohammad came from the offspring of an illegitimate child of Abraham is wrong.

So, a sin basically does not have to be a bad act. A sin is a sort of conviction which is granted to people who disobey God.

After this explanation, it is easy to translate what the original sin is.

Original sin is that, by nature, a human being is disobedient to God.

When you are born in a Christian family, you must go through baptism so that the original sin is removed and you become pure. In the light of Biblical explanation, if you are able to remove the original sin through baptism, it simply means you are no more disobedient to God.

If through baptism, the original sin was removed and you became pure, why do you become disobedient to God and commit sins again?

So you actually do not know what true baptism is.

True Baptism

True baptism is to remove the source of disobedience in you which you were born with: the original sin.

Muslim scholars and Christian scholars debate on this issue, but they never get to the bottom of the truth. According to the Christian faith, every baby born in this world is born with the original sin. According to the Muslim faith, every baby born into this world is born with an evil spirit. It is the same thing.

In one religion, God revealed the result, which is the original sin. In another religion, God revealed the root of that sin. The root of the original sin is the evil spirit. They are two different ends of one thing.

Baptism has two different aspects.

The first aspect is the ritualistic aspect. Festivity is attached with it. You celebrate that the baby is born; you take the baby to the church where it is baptised and you invite people [to share in the festivities]. The other aspect of baptism is the spiritual aspect, in which you remove the original sin and the source of the original sin.

I often say that every religion has two aspects: the outer aspect of the religion and inner dimension of the religion.

Baptism is to purify the baby from the original sin; at the same time, you also celebrate the arrival of the baby.

The inner dimension of baptism is to cast out that evil spirit which carries the original sin.

Obviously, you cannot perform both aspects of baptism at the same time. The outer aspect of baptism is done by the priest in the church. The inner aspect of baptism cannot be done by the priest; you have to do it yourself when you grow up.

You do it as a grown-up; perhaps this is why it is called Second Birth (to be born again).

In Christianity, this is called Second Birth, the Inner Baptism. In Sufi Islam, this is called Purification of the Self. It is the same thing. The God of Christians is not different from the God of Muslims. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are different religions, but God is the same.

I read news that Pope Francis was washing the feet of refugees and kissing them. He was saying, ‘Whether you are a Hindu, Christian, Jew or Muslim, you’re all children of the same God.’

This message of Pope Francis has to go across all countries of the world. All Catholics should adhere to this message as a theology; and at the same time, in their character when they practise their religion.

Bear it in mind that you may be a Hindu, Christian or a Muslim, but we worship the same God. You’re all children of the same God. Whether a Hindu, Christian or Muslim dies, God doesn’t like it.

Exaggeration in Religions

When through baptism, you became pure, then what of the notion that Lord Jesus died for our sins? It is very ironical that in every religion, so many perceptions have become conception. So many opinions of people have been included in religions as part of the religion. Religions and faiths have become opinionated. This is what is causing a lot of rift between these religions.

According to Muslim clerics, when Prophet Mohammad died, the angels allegedly, turn by turn, took Prophet Mohammad’s soul to every single paradise. When they realised that there is no place in any of the paradises which is worthy of accommodating Prophet Mohammad’s soul, they decided to bring back the soul of Prophet Mohammad to the same body from which they took him away. We believe God knows everything; but if this story is to be believed, then God only found out that nothing is worthy of Prophet Mohammad after his soul was taken to each and every paradise! So, this is a concocted story told by Muslim clerics; there is no truth in it.

But how many people in this world want to hear the truth? People believe in mythology and stories. In Pakistan, if somebody says, ‘I am a saint of God,’ the first thing they would want to ask you is, ‘How many miracles have you worked so far?’

A miracle is something that no man can do. For example, man cannot fly. If you could fly, you wouldn’t need a certificate to tell people you are a saint of God; everybody would start bowing at your feet. They would say, ‘This is what you call a saint of God.’

A miracle is that you have power to make happen things which do not happen normally in this phenomenal world.

For example, if it is raining cats and dogs and now someone says, ‘I will command the clouds to move, the rain to stop and the Sun to shine. I am a saint of God,’ people will believe them.

However, if I were to tell people, ‘I am a saint of God,’ they would ask, ‘Okay. Do you perform any miracle?’ I would reply, ‘I will connect you to God.’ They would say, ‘What? We are already connected.’

If somebody is connected to God, they cannot see it. If they cannot see it, they cannot believe it.

For example, restaurant staff started to believe that the new chef was good at his job only after he showed his abilities in the kitchen.

Do not be economical with the truth. If you do not acknowledge the truth, you’re not a good person. Say it. Make the truth be known.

So in every religion, there are stories. Those stories are so fascinating. Without this fascination in those stories, people wouldn’t have bought those stories. If there was no element of fascination or spiritual glamour in these stories, I don’t think people would have bought them. Exaggeration has always been part of religions. If God gave somebody ten grams of divine light, his followers would proclaim, ‘He received a thousand grams of divine light.’

In every religion, there are stories. For example, I met someone in Sri Lanka who said, ‘Kalki Avatar will come in the Dark Ages.’ I said, ‘This is the Dark Age.’ He replied, ‘No. The light is on. It is not the Dark Age because the light is on. Kalki Avatar would come after 5 million years.’ I said, ‘Really?’ He said, ‘Don’t be surprised. I had a neighbour who lived for 5000 years; he just died.’ Some people in India live for 4000-5000 years. If you tell them, ‘His date of birth suggests he was just 65,’ they say, ‘Yeah, but there were another 239 births. Including those, he lived for 5000 years.’

If you tell them the simple and naked truth, they’re not inspired by it.

We have been told fascinating stories about prophets and saints. We were told stories of saints who did not eat for 50 years or who never touched a woman. We were told that a saint’s life is full of miracles; they could [supposedly] fly without wings and never have to defecate. So, even when we become a saint, we still can’t believe we are holy.

These fascinating stories have destroyed our belief system. The belief system we have does not related to our present reality.

Our belief system in every religion is like talking about mythology; stories of the unknown, unseen and unclassified world which we are not part of.

Many times, I thought, ‘Why do you have to correct everything? Just say that Jesus died for our sins.’ But then, Jesus tells me, ‘If you also do not tell people the truth, then you will become disobedient.’

I cannot accept that Jesus can die. God is immortal; he doesn’t die. When you have this belief that Jesus is God, you will also have the same feeling. You will ask yourself, ‘How can he himself die when he is the giver of eternal life?’

When Jesus gives eternal life, how can Jesus run short of his own life?

The main theme of Christianity, as it appears today, is forgiveness of our sins. They say, ‘Jesus died for our sins, for the wages of sins is death,’ but that is not the main message from Jesus Christ.

 Jesus’s Main Message

The main message of Jesus Christ is firstly to love your Lord, your God with all your heart and soul. Secondly, he said, ‘Then I will take you to a place which no heart has ever conceived of, no eyes have dreamt of, no ears have heard of.’ Jesus is talking about going to the Unseen World. This destination was not revealed to Adam, Abraham, Moses or Mohammad.

Jesus never spoke of paradise. He always spoke of God’s Kingdom.

In this phenomenal world, when our most dearest guests come, we take them to our house. Those who are not as close stay in a hotel. Similarly, in paradise, you will have all the luxuries, but you will not live with God. Adam, Abraham, Moses and Mohammad spoke of paradise in which people will enjoy life; but there will be no love and there will be no God.

Only Jesus spoke about God’s Kingdom. He said, ‘I will take you there. You will go there only through me.’

When you lost spirituality, you forgot about the Kingdom of God and divine love.

You have [limited] the message of Jesus and Christianity to forgiveness of sins only. Is life all about sins and forgiveness of sins? What about love? What about going to the place which no heart has ever conceived of, which no eyes have ever dreamt of, which no ears have ever heard of? You don’t talk about that because you do not have connection with God. You have not seen that place.

Christianity is what it is today because the Bible does not have the Gospel of Thomas. In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus spoke about the spiritual journey, how to transform souls into a divine entity and how to transport them from this realm to the Kingdom of God.

When Jesus said, ‘Only men will enter the Kingdom of God,’ Thomas noticed that Mother Mary was coming. Thomas ran towards Mother Mary and said, ‘You are a woman. Stop. You cannot go ahead.’ Jesus said, ‘Who said my mother is a woman?’ Then Jesus said, ‘God has no gender.’ Mother Mary is holy and her spiritual highness can grant anybody to be holy.

We need to focus on the main theme of Jesus’s doctrine: divine love and our transportation into the Kingdom of God.

In the Gospel of Thomas, Judas Thomas said, ‘These are the hidden words that the living Jesus spoke.’ Thomas wrote them down and said, ‘Whoever finds the meanings of these words will not taste death.’ How can Jesus taste death?

Eschatology in the Gospel of Thomas

Eschatology is a chapter in every religion which talks about the end times. There is a chapter on this topic in the Gospel of Thomas as well.

Hear thou, Thomas, the things which must come to pass in the last times: there shall be famine and war and earthquakes in divers places, snow and ice and great drought shall there be and many dissensions among the peoples, blasphemy, iniquity, envy and villainy, indolence, pride and intemperance, so that every man shall speak that which pleaseth him.

This is in a religious connotation. Every single religious person will only say things which will please him. He will declare it a religion. He is not quoting from the celestial book or Prophetic Traditions; he has made up a concept which pleases him. He labels it as a religion and then promotes it.

And my priests shall not have peace among themselves, but shall sacrifice unto me with deceitful mind: therefore will I not look upon them. Then shall the priests behold the people departing from the house of the Lord and turning unto the world and setting up (or, transgressing) landmarks in the house of God. And they shall claim (vindicate) for themselves many [things and] places that were lost and that shall be subject unto Caesar as also they were aforetime: giving poll-taxes (for) the cities, even gold and silver and the chief men of the cities shall be condemned and their substance brought into the treasury of the kings, and they shall be filled.

For there shall be great disturbance throughout all the people, and death. The house of the Lord shall be desolate, and their altars shall be abhorred, so that spiders weave their webs therein. The place of holiness shall be corrupted, the priesthood polluted, distress (agony) shall increase, virtue shall be overcome, joy perish, and gladness depart. In those days evil shall abound: there shall be respecters of persons, hymns shall cease out of the house of the Lord, truth shall be no more, covetousness shall abound among the priests; an upright man (al. an upright priesthood) shall not be found.

On a sudden there shall arise near the last time a king, a lover of the law, who shall hold rule not for long: he shall leave two sons. The first is named of the first letter (A), the second of the eighth (H). The first shall die before the second.

Thereafter shall arise two princes to oppress the nations under whose hands there shall be a very great famine in the right-hand part of the east, so that nation shall rise up against nation and be driven out from their own borders.

Again another king shall arise, a crafty man, and shall command a golden image of Caesar to be made (al. to be worshipped in the house of God), wherefore martyrdoms shall abound. Then shall faith return unto the servants of the Lord, and holiness shall be multiplied and distress (agony) increase. The mountains shall the comforted and shall drop down sweetness of fire from the facet, that the number of the saints may be accomplished.

After a little space there shall arise a king out of the east, a lover of the law, who shall cause all good things and necessary to abound in the house of the Lord: he shall show mercy unto the widows and to the needy, and command a royal gift to be given unto the priests: in his days shall be abundance of all things.

And after that again a king shall arise in the south part of the world, and shall hold rule a little space: in whose days the treasury shall fail because of the wages of the Roman soldiers so that the substance of all the aged shall be commanded (to be taken) and given to the king to distribute.

Thereafter shall be plenty of corn and wine and oil, but great dearness of money, so that the substance of gold and silver shall be given for corn, and there shall be great dearth.

At that time shall be very great rising of the sea, so that no man shall tell news to any other man. The kings of the earth and the princes and the captains shall be troubled, and no man shall speak freely. Grey hairs shall be seen upon boys, and the young shall not give place unto the aged.

After that shall arise another king, a crafty man, who shall hold rule for a short space: in whose days there shall be all manner of evils, even the death of the race of men from the east even unto Babylon. And thereafter death and famine and sword in the land of Chanaan even unto Rome. Then shall all the fountains of waters and wells boil over and be turned into blood (or, into dust and blood). The heaven shall be moved, the stars shall fall upon the earth, the sun shall be cut in half like the moon, and the moon shall not give her light. There shall be great signs and wonders in those days when Antichrist draweth near. These are the signs unto them that dwell in the earth. In those days the pains of great travail shall come upon them. (al. In those days, when Antichrist now draweth near, these are the signs. Woe unto them that dwell on the earth; in those days great pains of travail shall come upon them.) Woe unto them that build, for they shall not inhabit. Woe unto them that break up the fallow, for they shall labour without cause. Woe unto them that make marriages, for unto famine and need shall they beget sons. Woe unto them that join house to house or field to field, for all things shall be consumed with fire. Woe unto them that look not unto themselves while time alloweth, for hereafter shall they be condemned for ever. Woe unto them that turn away from the poor when he asketh.

[Here is a break: the text goes on: For I am of the high and powerful: I am the Father of all. (al. And know ye: I am the Father most high: I am the Father of all spirits.) This, as we shall see, is the beginning of the older and shorter text, and of the Vienna fragment: only, in the latter, some words now unintelligible precede it: not the words, however, which are in Wilhelm’s text. I will continue with Wilhelm.]

These are the seven signs the ending of this world. There shall be in all the earth famine and great pestilences and much distress: then shall all men be led captive among all nations and shall fall by the edge of the sword.

Now, Jesus said:

Hear thou, O Thomas, for I am the Son of God the Father and I am the father of all spirits. Hear thou of me the signs which shall come to pass at the end of this world, when the end of the world shall be fulfilled  before mine elect depart out of the world. I will tell thee that which shall come to pass openly unto men: but when these things shall be the princes of the angels know not, seeing it is now hidden from before.

Saint Thomas the apostle of God asked our Lord when the time of Antichrist should be. Then the Lord spake unto him and said thus: It behoveth that it be in the next days. Then shall be hunger and war.

Recognition of Lord Jesus Christ

There are many religions, many philosophies and many faiths but I don’t think anything is as important as spirituality.

The message of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi is spirituality and divine love. Whether you practise a religion or not, in order to reach God, you practise spirituality. The world desperately needs revival of spiritual values!

Muslims who believe in Imam Mehdi do not know how to recognise Imam Mehdi, but hey are waiting. As it appears from their actions, I don’t think they are concerned about the arrival of Imam Mehdi. Their belief in Imam Mehdi is as customary as other rituals in the religion.

In a similar way, our Christian brothers and sister are waiting for Lord Jesus Christ, but they do not know how to recognise Jesus. Nobody has seen Jesus. What you have as pictures in churches and in Christian homes is a painting following the description given in the Bible.

Messiah Foundation International is the pioneer organisation who has introduced the real impression, the real image of Lord Jesus Christ.

We have only come to know of Jesus through books and stories. Either we speak very highly of Jesus Christ or some of the Christians speak very low of Jesus Christ.

On many occasions, during mind, body and soul expos all over the United States of America, I met some people who said, ‘Jesus was a spiritual healer and I am a spiritual healer too.’ It was shocking how inhumanly [they had] to degrade Lord Jesus Christ. To me, it was an act of blasphemy. Let alone common human beings; you cannot equate any messenger of God with Jesus. If you are talking about the body of Jesus, which was made of flesh and bones, that is God’s son. That is not the reality. Not even your reality lies in your body, let alone the reality of Lord Jesus Christ.

The real person of Lord Jess Christ is his soul which is no lesser in power, attributes, holiness and purity than God.

Someone in Mexico asked me, ‘Who is the greatest of all messengers and prophets?’ I did not want to answer this question. If I included Jesus among all other messengers, I would be knowingly or unknowingly blaspheming the origin of Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus only spent 30 months as a messenger of God.

When he was in the cradle, people were asking Mother Mary, ‘No man has ever touched you. Then who is this baby? Where has he come from?’ Mother Mary told them, ‘Don’t ask me about this baby. Ask the baby.’ While Jesus was still in his infancy, he spoke.

According to the divine law, no messenger or prophet can announce his prophethood before the age of 40. In the case of many prophets and messengers, they themselves did not know that they would be chosen by God as prophet or messengers in the future.

Moses did not know that at some point in time, God would anoint him to be a messenger of God. For the first time in his life, when he saw the burning bush, he wasn’t there for worship. He was journeying with his wife and his wife felt cold. He went onto the Mount of Sinai in search for fire. As he mounted, he saw a burning bush. Out of perplexity he wanted to move back, fearing he might get hurt. The voice was heard from that flame, ‘Moses, do not be afraid. I am your Lord, I am your God.’ This was the time when Moses himself found out that he was going to be appointed by God as a messenger.

As it is written in books, when Prophet Mohammad went to the Cave of Hira and was visited by Gabriel, he was confused. He seemed not to have any clue who Gabriel was, what was he doing and why he came to Prophet Mohammad. In that moment in time, Prophet Mohammad had only one apprehension: that (God forbid) he may not turn into one of the people possessed by evil spirits. Prophet Mohammad thought that Gabriel was an evil spirit at first. His apprehension made him confused and perplexed.

When he went back home, his words were, ‘Cover me with a blanket!’ He was running a temperature and was shivering. His wife was trying to comfort him; she was repeatedly saying to him, ‘You are a good man. You take care of people, feed the needy and help the poor. Whatever God is doing, he is not going to do anything bad to you.’

Then, a few days later, his wife told him of her friend, a Jewish Rabbi. She said, ‘If you want to know what is happening, should we go there?’ Prophet Mohammad agreed. When they arrived, the Rabbi stood up and said, ‘This man is a prophet of God.’ Prophet Mohammad’s wife asked him, ‘How are you so sure?’ He said, ‘When you were coming towards me, I saw that the trees were going down to his feet. The plants were prostrating.’ So even the leader of the prophets, when he was visited by Gabriel for the first time, was confused.

Then we have Jesus, who spoke in infancy. That was not a prophet speaking. That was the real person of Lord Jesus Christ: the Soul of God. 

It was God, not a prophet or a messenger. He acted like a messenger when he turned 33. God took him back; he ascended to the heavens even before he reached age 40. The age of 40 is the time when you announce your prophethood, but Jesus ascended to God before he reached 40. You cannot limit the different aspects of Jesus to one aspect of prophethood.

As I see Jesus, he is a multidimensional personality. He is a prophet, messenger, son of God and son of Mary.

The most secretive dimension of Jesus’s person is that he is one of the persons of God’s Community. I equal him of God; I see him as God. He enjoys equal powers – if not more! The least power Jesus has is as much as God has.

This is my understanding and this is what I have been trained to believe. It is not just that I have been trained to believe this, but I have observed it. I have witnessed it. I have seen it with the physical eye, with the eye of belief and, in the end, with the eye of certainty.

I am in no doubt but to assert the fact that Jesus is no lesser than God.

The Corruption In Religions

The Corruption In Religions

When you do not know the reality, you throw yourself to assumptions and different theories. This world was created by God and is subjected to God’s plan. Whether you like it or not, nothing will change. In the West especially, a lot of people have become atheists. Most people in England don’t believe in God. However, there are people in every society who believe in God and religions.

People who believe in God and religions are the ones who understand the fact that there is a plan from God: how God wants to run the world, how things will progress in the future and then how this world will come to an end. People who believe in God and religions are the ones who exactly know what a [particular occurrence] could mean in the light of God’s plan.

In the Bible, there is a chapter called Matthew, which is full of signs of the end times. In Islam, there are numerous Traditions of the Prophet Mohammad that discuss the events which will take place before the end times.

People who closely monitor what is happening the world and at the same time, they study their celestial book, they are the ones who are able to see whether or not the end times are coming.

One of the main features of the end times is that humanity is supposed to distance itself from God. Religions are to become corrupted; morality and ethical values will no more be seen. This world, as it is has been designed by God, is to become a place where lawlessness, distortion, tyranny, corruption, hatred, religious crimes and crimes against humanity will prevail.

The most prominent feature of the end times is the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ and then in many religions, a concept of the Awaited One has been propagated.

The main feature of the end times is destruction of religions.

Religions were supposed to lose their value and their ability to make its followers holy. We have so many religions being practised in the world today. However, it is evident that no religion, including Islam, is making its followers holy.

If you are a religious person, most likely, you will be considered by people to be holy. However, it is significantly ironical that the most unholy people you will find today are religious people.

Either you will find the most unholy people on Earth in a mosque, church or temple. People who were supposed to be God-fearing have no fear of God. They give lectures on God’s fear; they instil fear of God in hearts of others, but they think they have been exempted from the luxury of God’s fear. They become so careless and heedless of the religious chapters of the celestial book they are teaching others. They teach others, but they don’t understand. Maybe, in the back of their mind, they think this [does not apply to] them.

The problem is: every single religion that you will see being practised today has become null and void of spirituality.

According to the fundamental principles of a religion, one needs to adopt a religion in order to reach God. For example, when you want to travel, you do so by car, bus, train or airplane. These different types of vehicles are the means of transportation. In a similar way, a religion is like a vehicle.

If you hear somebody saying, ‘I have to catch a flight’, instantly, you will ask that person, ‘Are you going somewhere?’ If he says, ‘No,’ you will ask, ‘Then why are you catching a flight?’ It sounds absurd if they say, ‘I am just catching a flight. It doesn’t mean I am going anywhere.’

However, if you ask anybody today, ‘Why do you practise Islam?’ Trust me: they don’t have any answer. They practise Islam as an inherited habit.

Practice and quality of practice both are inherited from our parents, our forefathers.

For example, if the parents are fasting during Ramadan, and in the daytime, they are watching an Indian movie, the children will get the impression that watching a movie is not a bad thing, because their parents are doing it.

Sometimes, you inherit some of the things from your parents. Sometimes, you adopt certain things from the company your keep.

Every single political party has an agenda, a manifesto. In England, we have the Labour Party, and the Conservative Party (Tories). The Labour Party’s policies support the middle class and poor people. Conservatives don’t care about poor people or the middle class. They only cater for the needs of the rich elite. The Conservative Party is making huge cuts on the NHS, policing, disability allowances and income support. If you know very well what Conservatives are doing and you are claiming benefits, you won’t ever join the Conservatives because you know what that party stands for. You will support a party which will address your issues.

In a similar way, If I ask you, ‘Why are you a Muslim and not a Christian?’ You won’t have an answer.

I am a Goharian. If you ask me why I am a Goharian and not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jew, I can answer you.

Being a Goharian, I enjoy the bounty of my Lord, the divine protection. My life is now full of bliss: spiritual bliss, economical bliss. I have no worries of my future. My heart is set on peace.

I don’t harm, hurt or deceive people. I do not hate anybody for any reason, whether you are Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu or Sikh. Whether the colour of your skin is white, brown, pinkish, blue, etc. I don’t care. I respect everybody. I respect all religions, all men, all women and all children, whether they respect me or disrespect me. You will not find a person of this character either in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism or Judaism. This is why I am Goharian.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi teaches us to respect humanity, not to hate anybody and to love everybody. Jesus said the same thing. Jesus said, ‘Love your neighbour like you love yourself. Feed your neighbour like you feed yourself,’ but people don’t do that. Why is it that Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi says the same things that Jesus said and the followers of Lord Ra Riaz practically believe in what Lord Ra Riaz says, but the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ do not manifest in the characters [of Christians]? We are able to practise this and we are able to witness Lord Ra Riaz’s doctrine of love in our character because we have been given a spiritual methodology. Hearts have been initiated. We are journeying on spiritual embarkment. Whereas [others] only have theory; [they] do not have spiritual methodology.

No religion is bad, but people do not know how to practise a religion. All religions were good when they were established by their respective prophets and messengers.

The corruption in the hearts of human beings has corrupted the religions.

Someone can become dirty by anything: mud, dust – or maybe if it every humid and hot, they will sweat. To clean themselves, they will take a shower. In Islam, Prophet Mohammad declared cleanliness to be half of one’s religion; to love God is the complete religion.

How the world looks at these atrocities and untoward incidents of terrorism is different. They do not get to the bottom of the truth. They think this problem is very temporal. However, I want to tell you that this is part of God’s plan.

I know atheists will hate me for saying this and some others will jump to conclusions like, ‘You are not sorry for what is happening.’ That is not what I am saying. For example, nobody wants to die, but if I say, ‘It is all written by God,’ am I offending you, me or God? When you die, wherever you die, it comes from God. Everybody has the right to live – but when you say that, you are completely ignoring the fundamental aspect of your presence on Earth, which is that you are here for a brief period of time. You are here for your test. 

All these people who are dying in these countries, and all these people who are killing, are useless in the eyes of God. For example, most of the Syrian refugees are economic migrants. I went to Canada and someone told me that Syrian refugees who have now been given asylum in Canada are complaining to the government, ‘You are not taking care of us. We were better off living in camps.’ Justin Trudeau went to the airport to welcome these refugees. All MFI members who came to Canada from India [as refugees, due to them being persecuted in Pakistan for their beliefs], their air tickets were bought by an agency and they were bound to pay back the expenses. Whatever amount of money was spent on them, they were required to pay back to the government – and they did. However, these refugees who are coming now from Syria are not paying back anything. There is no burden of debt on them. They’re given all sorts of facilities: medical, residential, etc. and still they’re so ungrateful.

When they went to Germany, they started raping women. People of Germany did not like the idea of accepting any refugees, but when Angela Merkel announced it, they remained quiet. I still remember seeing images in newspapers and social media that they were coming and people were standing, welcoming them in Germany and giving them water and food. When they finally started living in Germany, they started raping their women. The same thing happened in Sweden; they raped so many women in Sweden. The soft corner that they had developed in the hearts of Swedish and German people, by exposing their ugly character, they have lost it. Nobody wants to show compassion to such idiots.

They’re rapists. What’s the difference between them and ISIS? They’re not escaping ISIS. They just want to come to Europe. This ISIS problem has not started now. It has been there for quite a few years now. Why are they migrating now? They have been living there with all those problems. We should definitely say a big no to all these Syrian refugees. You only blame yourself if you accept them and tomorrow something goes wrong.
