Religions & The Way to God Controversy

Younus AlGohar responds to book tweeted to him called ‘Ceasefire! Religions and the Way to God Controversy’. He explains to metaphorical and hypothetical understandings about the phrase ‘Way to God’ and why spirituality is essential to reaching God.

Main points:

  • Some people rigidly refuse to believe in God and attack those who believe in God. What’s the difference between them and promoters of extremism? The attitude and policy, that of ‘My way or the highway,’ leads one to become a social extremist. Tolerance is the basic element of a free society.
  • Currently, religions and the way to God are two different things. Religions don’t direct people to God, rather direct them to believing in God. Only mysticism directs people to God.
  • The hypothetical meaning of ‘Way to God’: you are covering a distance between you and God, and finding union with him. You know where he is. The metaphorical meaning of ‘Way to God’: To think about God, become obedient to God, uphold the divine law and live life according to it. In this practice, your character won’t change and you won’t become divine.
  • When religions were in their purest form, reaching God was difficult. The results of practising the religion are not seen instantly, but rather on the Day of Judgement when God will summon all the souls to hold them accountable for their deeds in the phenomenal world. In spirituality, one gets the reward instantly in form of God’s nearness and love.
  • Lord Ra Riaz says, ‘Neither is God far from you nor is he close to you. He is within you. Explore yourself; he is beyond the veil of You.’ With the help of spirituality, whoever becomes divine and unified with God is better than all others, regardless of their gender or sexuality.

New Video: Ayat e Tatheer Ka Pas Manzar | By His Holiness Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrdhGB4VcJI

Younus AlGohar explains the background of the famous verse of the Koran known as Ayat-e-Tatheer, Koran 33:33. He reveals who exactly God was addressing in this verse and why.

Main points

- The addressees of this verse are the wives of Prophet Mohammad. First, God says to them, 'You are the wives of a prophet. You are not common women; therefore, you must understand your position and rank. Do not behave like the average woman.'

- The pre-Islamic era is known as the Age of Ignorance. In the Age of Ignorance, women had their own style of makeup, fashion and conduct. The wives of Prophet Mohammad had been wearing makeup and fashion of the Age of Ignorance. In this verse of the Koran, God reprimands them for it, advises them to obey God and his Messenger and give the religious tax. He also says at the end that he has decided to purify them of all impurities.

- The Koran also says, 'O' wives of Prophet Mohammad, if you engage in any wrongdoings you will be given double punishment as compared to common women because you are not common women.'

- In the West, women and men mingle with one another freely; however, when it comes to the issue of public toilets, toilets are segregated by sex in order to avoid potential dangers. Similarly, God foresees many other issues due to which he forbid women from mingling with men unnecessarily.

- Any Muslim who thinks that Ayat-e-Tatheer was for Prophet Mohammad's progeny - Bibi Fatima, Imam Hassan, Imam Hussain and Syeda Zainab - is committing an act of disbelief. As they are the progeny of Prophet Mohammad, they are pure to begin with. They were born with divine energy. Since God said in Ayat-e-Tatheer, 'We have decided to purify them of impurity,' this does not apply to them.
