'Anything you do, speak, conceive, perceive or think has an impact on your mental and spirituality health.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
On February 27, 2013, a team from Messiah Foundation International began propagation activities in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel. They visited the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock to raise awareness of the spiritual sciences in the Jewish community. Christians and Muslims were given the message of divine love as well.
MFI's delegation handed out leaflets bearing the images of the Messiah Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi on the Moon and Holy Black Stone (the Ark of Covenant). They also explained the method of Invocation of the Heart to aspirants. People were granted Invocation of the Heart according to their respective religions and preferred name of God. The overall response has been fantastic and our team is excited to continue spreading the message of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi in Israel.

'Almost everybody wants to know about others. It is a pity that we do not know who we are.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
His Holiness Younus AlGohar delivers a profound, eye-opening lecture about the evolvement of enlightenment and corruption over time. His Holiness answers the question: have the negative traits and vices we see in human beings today always been part of human nature or have they developed with the passage of time - and if so, why? A truly thought-provoking speech!

His Holiness Younus AlGohar explains a verse from the Quran which suggests those who have obtained some Noor (Divine Energy) can also be misguided. His Holiness also notes how another Quranic verse about diseased hearts fits most members of Anjuman-e-Serfaroshan-e-Islam today. In addition, he discusses the rights of Imam Mehdi upon humanity and the Day of Judgement, as well as the difference between Dhikr-e-Dil and Dhikr-e-Qalb.
This speech is largely in Urdu, however an English translation will soon be available.

Today's Quote of the Day is from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi. 'God is all love, and He manifests His attributes on a daily basis.'
In this unprecedented speech, His Holiness Younus AlGohar reveals very delicate secrets of God. His Holiness explains how God's dealings with human beings differ - what does it mean to be under God's Merciful Glance eternally and what does it mean to be under His Merciful Glance temporarily? His Holiness Younus AlGohar also notes how God limited the power and authority of His prophets in the past and why; in contrast, what rights does Imam Mehdi (as) have over humanity? A truly mind-blowing lecture!

Messiah Foundation USA has set up stall at the Body, Mind and Spirit Expo in Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend! We had an incredibly successful first day and our team is excited to give the message of divine love to more aspiring hearts tomorrow, the 23rd of February (the last day of the expo). We will be available tomorrow from 11 AM - 6 PM. Come find us at Booth #21! For information about tickets and the venue, click here.
Here is what a member of the Messiah Foundation USA team has to say about the first day:
The crowd was beyond expectation! The response here has been very good; people are listening to our message carefully. They were able to see the image of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi's image on the Moon very easily and were fascinated with the teachings of His Divine Eminence.
People of all religions (and also those who do not believe in organised religion) showed appreciation for our message. In particular, a large number of Hindus attending the expo and took the picture of His Divine Eminence home for blessings. Over 100 people were given our leaflets bearing the divine signs of HDE Gohar Shahi on the Moon and Holy Black Stone. We also had displayed a banner bearing images of HDE Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ outside the fairground, which many people said drew them towards our booth.
We invited expo-goers to investigate these divine signs. We granted aspirants Invocation of the Heart (AKA Simran) of the divine mantra of their preference, leading them to feel an immense attraction towards the image of HDE Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Overall the event is going wonderfully and we look forward to another successful day tomorrow!
The Body, Mind and Spirit Expo is being held at the Ker Scott Building located on the North Carolina State Fairgrounds (Raleigh, NC) until 6 PM on Sunday, the 23rd of February 2014. Learn more about it here.
Today's Quote of the Day is from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi. 'You begin to love what dwells in thy heart.'

On the 16th of February, 2014, a team from Kalki Avatar Foundation, Bangladesh, toured the Bakhsho Nagar Nawabganj District in which they held four very successful programmes.
The first programme was arranged by Mr. Dilip Das in Moni Rishi Colony, where more than one hundred people embraced the divine message of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi. Presenters from our team pointed out the divine signs of Kalki Avatar on the Moon, Sun and Maha Shivling. Many people were extremely happy after receiving the message and asked to receive heart invocation of Ra Raam. Free spiritual healing was also offered to them by our team.
The second programme was held in Moni Rishi Colony, Kumarganj which was attended by more than 100 people. Our presenters offered heart invocation of Ra Raam as well as free spiritual healing. At the end of the programme, many people approached our team and invited them to deliver this message to their colonies.
The third programme took place in Bol Mochar Colony, where more than 50 people gathered to hear the message of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi. The divine signs of Kalki Avatar on the Moon, Sun and Maha Shivling were shown to the people. At the end, our team also distributed leaflets bearing the image of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi.
The last programme was held in Bol Mondro Chaur Colony where the message of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi was delivered to more than 50 people. This programme as well as the others was extremely successful as people felt inclined towards the image of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi and were eager to receive invocation of the heart.
People approached our presenters and said, 'We have never heard a message like this before. Many spiritual people visit us, but none of them explained to us how our souls could be connected with Bhagwan. However, with the miraculous teachings of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi we now know how our souls can be connected with Bhagwan.'

'It's not about changing the religion, it is about changing your heart.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
Today's Quote of the Day is from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi. 'You beautify and groom your face with soap and cream because people look at it. Have you ever cleansed what God wants to look at?'
Thursday, 20 February 2014
The following is the transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech (video above).
There are people in every religion who strictly follow the mainstream set of beliefs, very orthodox. Their practice is not very profound; they just follow the rituals of the religion. They are not in the pursuit of obtaining God’s nearness or adopting the spiritual path of purification, mortification and purgation. They are just superficial practitioners of the religion. They are not really into what they are doing; they just go for the face-value. And then, there are always some people in all religions who want to go beyond heaven and the beautiful damsels in the heaven - who want to go for God and love. A majority of people in all religions are very strict, superficial and ritualistic, and they follow the Black Letter Law. They do not want to dig out the real meaning of the Holy Scriptures. They just want to do what is easiest for them to do. Going to the church every Sunday is not a difficult thing to do, but when you adopt spiritual path, it is more than a full-time job; it’s a target and a lifetime aim. One has to completely dedicate himself in purifying and mortifying himself.
Adopting spirituality is more difficult than becoming a hermit; when you become a hermit, you stop meeting people and you make the jungle your abode. You don’t want to see human beings; you live a very solitary, lonely life. But, when you want to adopt spirituality, then hermitage appears to be less difficult, because adopting spirituality is changing your inner and out, changing your thought-process, changing your behaviour and changing your entire system. The source of enjoyment changes and the source of peace [changes]. For example, some people become peaceful when they see money and some people are not peaceful when their pocket is empty; for them, the source of peace is money. But for some people, their pockets are full but their hearts are empty of peace. Some people have everything, every single luxury of the world under their belt, but even then they seem to be in the wilderness; they do not find peace. So, the source is different. Some peace is very superficial; that peace is money, properties and material wealth. But then, some will find peace only when their souls are awakened and they have the content of the heart; they will have the content of the heart when their heart is enlightened and their heart has found its inhabitant.
Islam itself is a beautiful religion. The principles of Islam are the principles of every messenger. When Adam came, he talked about good things; he taught people to love God and humanity. Then Abraham taught people to love God, love humanity and respect all. Moses was the liberator; he liberated people from the tyranny of Pharaoh, he asked people to recognise God in their lives and to dedicate to God in worship and love. Then we have Jesus. Jesus was the Divine Example on two legs, he was the Walking God. He talked about Divine Love. Jesus was the first of all messengers who exhibited gallantry, bravery and he was 'Dabangg' (a brave heart); he sort of taught rebellion against the ritualistic approach to God. He said, 'How can you find God in a building that you built with your own hands? Turn your heart into the temple of God.' He said, 'Love your God your Lord with all your heart, with all your soul.' In a nutshell, the teachings of Jesus circumbulated around one foremost and principle reality, and this reality was God's love.
It is so pleasant to see familiarities between the doctrine of Jesus and the doctrine of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi says, 'A dog is better than a man who doesn't have God's love in his heart.' He said, 'A Christian says that he is the best, Jews say they are the best, Muslims say they are the best; but Gohar Shahi says, "The best is the one who has God's love in his heart, even if he doesn’t follow any religion."'
In simple words, Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has exhibited to the world the true significance of God's love. He has highlighted God’s love, whereas in the religions and Holy Scriptures, religions had the upper hand and God's love was not dominant. God's love was not mentioned with so much dominance, it was not highlighted; it was not the prime objective in any religion. There are so many different types of directives from God and so many different objectives in the religion; however, love is one of them! However, Jesus and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi have nullified all else and gave all significance to divine love.
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, 'If you do not love God, then your religious practice is futile; and if you love God, then it doesn't matter whether you follow a religion or you don't.'
Now, HDE Gohar Shahi is changing the way we think. And this message of HDE Gohar Shahi is not designed to cater the needs of one particular group of nation or religion. The message has so much absorbency in itself - it is so universal and so great that it can absorb all religions. The message is so profound. Look at the depth of this message! If you have God's love in your heart, then you are the best! You are better than those who practise a religion but even then they do not love God! It is like if somebody works eight hours a day, yet he is hand-to-mouth and then there is a guy who doesn’t work at all, but his pockets are always full. You can easily say that this unemployed man whose pockets are full all the time is better than those who work all the time yet they are crying and are always hand-to-mouth. We understand that you must work in order to support yourself financially; if that work is not earning you enough money so that you can support yourself and your family, then the one who is unemployed and whose pockets are full is better than them. Similarly, these religions were established for people so that they practise these religions and out of this practice, as a result, they manage to love God.
Now, if you practise a religion and this practice doesn’t lead you to love God, then this practice is futile and useless. Why is this practice of the religion not leading you to love God eventually? In the olden days, prophets and messengers were sent to establish these religions. The design and plan from God was to let these people exercise, practise and observe the Black Letter Law; they should practise this religion and this will lead them to love God eventually. But now, the Lord said that all religions and all Holy Scriptures have been subjected to a lot of alterations and adulterations. So many things have been modified in the Holy Scriptures. The Bible is not the same Bible anymore; the Quran is not the same Quran which was revealed onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad. When the religions and Holy Scriptures are messed with and tampered with by half-baked scholars - there are half-baked scholars in all religions- for example, we have this creed system in Christianity. The Church of England, from time to time, they sit together and say, 'From now on this practice will be irreligious and this practice will be banned.' What was not part of the religion at the time of Jesus, they sit together and under the creed system they say, 'From today, this will be considered as religious practice.' For example, the Church of England, they have done so many things which were not part of Christianity at the time.
In a similar way, Islam has gone through that phase and they also have this creed system now, which they call 'Ijtehaad'. Their statements contradict a lot. For example, their principle belief is, 'Nothing is outside Quran. All sorts of knowledge is found in the Quran,' and then they say, 'What is not in Quran, what is not said by the Prophet, then we will do Ijtehaad on this.' But you said everything is in the Quran; there is no need for Ijtehaad then! Ijtehaad in Islam is the same thing as creed in Christianity. You are sitting together to take a decision on something which doesn’t belong to you. These religions - Christianity, Islam and Judaism - belong to the messenger who established it. If you want to bring some changes, consult the messenger; but you don’t have the approach and you are not connected. When this happened, when they didn’t find proper instructions about certain things in the Bible or Quran, they did not think, 'We should have approach Jesus or Mohammad.' Rather, they thought, 'Okay, there are no clear-cut instructions on this topic in the Quran or Bible. Let's sit together and make a decision.' This is where they went wrong.
When this happened, the Bible was adulterated. The Quran were adulterated – when we talk about modification in the Quran, we do not mean the text has been changed. We do not say the text has been changed, rather, we say the meaning has been tampered with. Now, it doesn’t matter whether the text was modified or the meaning was misinterpreted, because if the meaning is misinterpreted and you fail to understand what God meant by what you are reading today, then it doesn't really matter whether the text or the meaning was changed. In a similar way, the Quran has been greatly misinterpreted. Why? Because in order to understand God's words, you need a Divine Teacher! You need somebody who is in connected with the messenger, because God directly spoke with him and told him the meaning of the Bible and the Quran. Jesus knows what the meaning of the teachings in the Bible is and only those will know about the teachings who are connected to Jesus. If somebody is not connected to Jesus, he will not come to know the real meaning of the Bible.
In a similar way, there are Sufis who were connected to God. From time to time, they gave people the true interpretation of the Quran; with that, they were able to enlighten their souls and approach God. Those who were able to do this never ever hated anybody, they never ever took it to the swords and they never cut the throats of non-Muslims. Whoever appeared to them, they blessed them. Their message was love. There were so many Muslim Sufis and they loved Christians and Jews the same way they loved Muslims. They did not have any grudge against non-Muslims. Being a non-Muslim is not a sin! Being a Christian is not a sin! Being a Jew is not a sin because Jews did not become Jews on their own. Christians in America and England say that there are three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. All the prophets unanimously believe that Abraham is the father - and we have the same belief system. We believe Abraham is the father of all the prophets. And, to your utter surprise, the Quran says the same thing. We say, 'Abrahamic faith,' and the Quran says, 'Millat-e-Ibrahim.' Muslims now hate Jews because of misinterpretation of the Quran. If the prophet of Islam had taught Muslims to hate Jews, then they would not send salutations and benedictions on the progeny of Abraham and Abraham himself during their worship.
All Muslims go to Mecca for annual pilgrimage and they circumbulate around Kaaba, the black cubicle. In that holy place, most of the things belong to Abraham. For example, there is a passage upon which everybody has to run; it is a half-mile passage called 'Safa Marwa.' All Muslims have to run on this. Why? Because Ismail's mother, Hagar, was holding Ismail and she was running on that passage searching for water. In order to celebrate that moment, God has imposed doing that running bit on that particular spot for all Muslims. This is in the memory of Abraham’s concubine, Hagar. And then there are three different places in Mecca where there are statues of the devil; they go before these statues and stone the statue. Why? Because those three spots were the posts where Abraham was met by the devil. So, in this annual pilgrimage to Mecca, 90% of the worship is pertaining to Abraham.
Muslims have misinterpreted the Quran; then you say that Jews are your enemy? This is so wrong! And then in Quran, God said, 'I have prescribed the pilgrimage of this house, Kaaba, on all human beings.' According to the Quran, all human beings should go on pilgrimage to Kaaba, but Muslims of Saudi Arabia do not let anybody enter. There is a border, a point outside Mecca; from beyond that point, no non-Muslims can go [there]. This is because of the misinterpretation of the Quran. At the time of Prophet Mohammad, even the Kuffar (infidels) used to go to the pilgrimage of Kaaba - and now you do not allow non-Muslims. There is a difference between non-Muslim and Kuffar; if somebody is a Kafir, he/she rejects God. If he/she rejects God, he/she will not accept Christianity, Islam, Judaism or any religion. But those who consider themselves to be Jews or Christians, it simply means they believe in God - so not all non-Muslims are Kafir. Those who practise a religion and that religion was prescribed by their messengers and prophets, they are not Kafireen; they are as good as Muslims (if Muslims are good).
The Quran has been tampered with misinterpretation and the Traditions of the Prophet have been tampered with misquotation. Now, it is impossible to gain any benefits out of the practice of the religion which has been tampered with; therefore, the religions have lost their significance and credentials. Today, none of the religions have any credibility in terms of connecting people with God.
Therefore, HDE Gohar Shahi has done a favour upon humanity, declaring, 'All you want to do is to be able to love God. Forget about the religion if you don’t want to follow it. As long as you love God, it is enough for you.'
So, our message is love - whether it is for Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Christians or Jews. For example, people of Adam, they believe in Adam - but eventually, what is their target? To love and worship God. People of Abraham; you are a Jew, no problem; but what is the objective? The objective that that prophet came with is to enable you to love God and worship God. Same goes for the people of Moses, Jesus, and Prophet Mohammad. All these messengers and prophets came down on Earth with one objective: to help humanity love and worship God. When the objective, destination and destiny is the same, why should we fight? Why should we kill each other?
These religions are classifications. Now all the religions have been messed up. Let's cut the crap out and get to the point. 'Cut the crap out,' means that these religions have become futile, let's get to the point. The point is: the purpose of all these religions was to make you love God. Now they have become futile, they have been tampered with and adulterated and they have become like a vehicle which cannot take you anywhere. So now, get to the point and the point is that you start loving God. The tools of love are here, the methodology has been sent. It’s not like we are just saying, 'love God,' and nobody knows how to love God. We are not asking people to do things they cannot do. We are asking people to have these tools, methodology and help on top of that - and become able to love God.
It’s not about changing the religion; it’s about changing your heart.
All the religions were worthy of respect, because whatever is in the Bible came from God. Whatever was in the book of Adam came from God and whatever is in Quran - it was brought by Prophet Mohammad - but it came from God. When all these books are the word of God, the same God, then why fight? That is the message.
Next time, I'll give you a comparative view of Muslim spirituality, Jewish spirituality and Christian spirituality. I have a Gnostic Bible. Gnostic knowledge is the knowledge which is from God and will take you to God; a knowledge that is from God for God. In Christianity, there was a group of people and they called themselves Gnostics. In those times, if somebody said, 'I am not a Christian, I am a Gnostic,' it means, if you sit with them, you are sitting with God - because they had the knowledge that came to them from God so that that knowledge could take them to God. With the help of that knowledge, people recognised God and God's presence within them. This is the knowledge of Gnosticism.

Today's quote of the day is from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi. 'Worship is but a means to cleanse the heart. You are remotely far off God should you fail to cleanse the heart through worship.'

1) Introduce Sharia Law in Courts
There are Sharia courts in Pakistan already. Now, this is very interesting: the round of talks between the Government of Pakistan and the Taliban, 'They should be dealt with in the light of Quran not according to the constitution of Pakistan,' whereas if you study the Constitution of Pakistan, the Quran and Sunnah (Customs of Prophet Mohammad) have the supreme authority in the Constitution of Pakistan. These two things are really contradictory. When Quran and Sunnah have the supreme authority according to the Constitution of Pakistan and then they say, 'Forget about the Constitution, talk about Quran,' it’s ridiculous.
2) Introduce Islamic System of Education
Just the Islamic System, not Islam? What is the ‘Islamic System of Education’? The system is not Islamic or un-Islamic, it is what you teach. What is the Islamic System of Education? Can we teach pornography according to the Islamic System, because you are just talking about the system, not the contents? There is no system in Islam of education.
Prophet Mohammad said, 'I am the City of Knowledge, and Ali is the gateway to the City of Knowledge.'
According to Islam, Prophet Mohammad is the source of knowledge, yet you do not respect him. Where is the education now? You blaspheme Prophet Mohammad; you say, 'If one thinks about Prophet Mohammad during his/her Salat, their Salat is corrupted.' Where do you expect to obtain education from? You don’t have access to either Prophet Mohammad or Ali; they are the source of knowledge; what is the Islamic System of Knowledge? Maybe they are trying to say that there should be no chemistry education or physics education, rather, they should only teach Quran and Sunnah. If this is what they mean, then they are really stupid because all this knowledge of science, medical science and physics, came from Muslim scientists. Ibn-e-Sina (Avicenna) was the first surgeon in the history of medical science. All pharmaceutical knowledge comes from Muslims scientists. If they only learned how to recite Quran and read Hadith, they would not have become scientists. What book did they read before they became scientists? Even if you want to study Quran, this Quran is not complete.
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi was giving a speech in Muscat and somebody stood up on his feet and asked HDE, in a very disrespectful way, 'The deen (religion) is complete! We have never heard that a heart can recite the name of Allah. When the deen is complete, where has Dhikr Allah (Remembrance of God) come from; where has Dhikr-e-Qalb (Invocation of the Heart) come from? What are you talking about?' HDE said to him, 'Who said the deen is complete? On Hujjat ul Widha (Last Address of Prophet Mohammad), Sharia was complete, not Tariqa.' HDE said, 'Then, all these individuals like Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani, Data Ali Hajweri, Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, and Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz all went into the jungles. They all went through the process of purgation, mortification, and purification of their heart and soul. And only after the exhaustive austerities and struggle against their Nafs, they became heavenly people on Earth; if they were wrong, how did they become so close to God?'
This Quran is incomplete because it talks about Sharia only. Even if the deen is complete, you do not have that complete deen with you. Only one portion of deen is mentioned in Quran, the other portion is hidden and mysterious. Abu Hurairah said, 'I told you about one knowledg. If I tell you about the other knowledge that I learned from Prophet Mohammad, then you would cut my throat.' Where is that knowledge? At least one part of the knowledge is missing from your Quran. Quran talks about Momineen (Enlightened Ones/Believers), Quran talks about Auliyah (saints), Quran talks about Faqr (Spiritual Poverty), but where does Quran talk about how to become a Momin? How to become a Saint of God? How to come out from darkness and enter light?
ٱللَّهُ وَلِىُّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ يُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ ٱلظُّلُمَٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ ۖ
'God protects those who believe; he brings them out from darkness into light.'
The Quran mentions this, but how will this happen? Where does Quran tell you’re the process, the procedure? How will you become a Momin? For example, according to the Quranic verse Hujarat,
قَالَتِ الْأَعْرَابُ آمَنَّا ۖ قُل لَّمْ تُؤْمِنُوا وَلَٰكِن قُولُوا أَسْلَمْنَا وَلَمَّا يَدْخُلِ الْإِيمَانُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ
'The Arabs said they are Momin. Say unto them that they are not Momin. They should rather say, "We have submitted to Islam and have become Muslim." And you will not become Momin until Emaan enters your heart.'
This explanation comes from Quran, however it is very sad that Quran does not tell you how to bring Emaan into your heart; Quran only tells you that you will become Momin when Emaan enters your heart. Then, who will tell us?
فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ
[21:7]'So go and ask people of Dhikr about the knowledge that you do not know.'
Now, if Quran had this knowledge in it, then it would not divert you to certain people. If Quran had this knowledge it would tell you to read the Quranic verse Baqara, or Nisa, or Ka`haf, or Mai`da; but Quran didn’t say that. Quran itself says that there is some knowledge that it doesn’t have.
According to a Hadith, Prophet Mohammad said, 'Some individuals in my Ummah (nation) are the keys to Dhikr.' Another Hadith mentions, 'O' my Companions, shall I not tell you about those who are the best among all of you?' The Companions said, 'O' Prophet, enlighten us,' and the Prophet said, 'The best among you are those that remind you of God; that you see them and start doing Dhikr Allah straight away. You look at their face and you will miss God. You look at their face and you will start thinking about God.' This is a very common translation, but His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi gave us a different meaning of this sentence. HDE said, 'Even when you see somebody who is crippled, or is limping, you will remember God. This is not what it means. This is about people; you will see them and Dhikr Allah will start in your heart.'
What is this knowledge for which one must go for to the people of Dhikr? At the very least, all Muslims must agree that this knowledge is not in the Quran. If this knowledge was in Quran, the Quran would not say, 'فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ'. The Ulema cannot say that they have this knowledge, because if Quran does not have this knowledge, how can you say you have it? You read this Quran. Only those have that knowledge that read Quran-e-Maqnoon - and it is hidden inside the heart of Prophet Mohammad. In order to access that Quran, you need to gain access to Prophet Mohammad. The Mysterious Knowledge was shared by all five Grand Messengers, so there have been five portions of that knowledge. God gave one portion of that knowledge to Prophet Adam, and what he did was keep half of the portion for himself and shared the other half with the saints. All Messengers were given two types of knowledge. Type one is printed in the Quran, Bible, Torah, Talmud, Psalms of David and the Old and New Testaments; anyone who has access to it can read it. There was another type of knowledge: the Mysterious Knowledge. This knowledge was given to Prophet Adam, Prophet Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Prophet Mohammad. In order to access the Mysterious Knowledge, either you lived then or you live now; equally for the people of both periods, you have to access it spiritually - because that knowledge is mysterious and hidden. It’s not like if Prophet Mohammad was here today, you could ask him, 'Prophet Mohammad, why don’t you share that Mysterious Knowledge with us?' No.
This knowledge in the Quran is not the knowledge that is in the city of Prophet Mohammad. When Prophet Mohammad said, 'I am the city of Knowledge,' he was talking about some other type of knowledge, because the knowledge in the Quran is given to everybody; Ali cannot be the gateway to that knowledge. What you have and other clerics have, did you obtain this by passing through Hazrat Ali before you went to the Madrassa? It simply means that Hazrat Ali is the gateway to some other type of knowledge - and that is the Esoteric Knowledge. This mysterious and hidden knowledge was given to all Messengers: one portion of Exoteric Knowledge and one portion of the Mysterious Knowledge. Without that knowledge, you cannot access God. You go to mosques, temples, churches and synagogues today; you have all that knowledge in all these worship places, but you get bored. You do not feel God’s presence there. Why? Because, they are empty of that knowledge; when you have that knowledge in your heart, then all these worship places will come and circumbulate around you; whoever has that knowledge will become holy. You and I are not holy; it is the light and the knowledge that makes us holy. One day you are a Kafir (Infidel) and after that knowledge goes inside your heart, you will become a saint.
HDE Gohar Shahi said, 'Even the son of a Kafir is born into this world with the ability to become a saint.'
When the son of a Kafir learnt the Spiritual Knowledge, he became a saint; despite being a Muslim, you were unable to become a saint!
They are talking about Islamic system. What is Islamic System of Education? Does this Islamic System of Education exist anywhere in this world including Saudi Arabia, UAE or any Muslim country? Where is this Islamic System of Education? It’s nowhere, because it doesn’t exist! There is no Islamic System, there is Islamic knowledge. The 'Islamic System of Education,' is the same system as Christianity, and that system is the system of enlightening the hearts. There is NO Islamic System of Education. Education is education.
3) Free the Pakistani and non-Pakistani members of Taliban from jail
I really do not understand this logic. In order to bring about Sharia Law, you are killing Muslims? Does it make sense? You are killing the Americans and the British. You are killing humanity. Why? To bring about Sharia? That is ridiculously terrible! Those who have killed thousands of people, they have been captured by the police and are in the jails. You want them to be set free? That is not possible, it cannot be done.
4) Hand over control of tribal areas to local forces
I do not have a problem with that. The tribal leaders should be given the control over the tribal areas. It is understandable. The local people should be given the control, therefore there is no need for infiltration.
5) Withdrawal of the army from tribal areas
The problem is, the army is there to stop terrorism; the army is not there for gaining control over these areas. What they should do is set these tribal areas free and make a boundary line, borders so that Pakistanis cannot go there and you (those in the tribal areas) cannot come here (to Pakistan).
6) All criminal allegations against Taliban dropped
They are so innocent! They haven’t committed any other crime for except mass murder, massacre, carnage, and organised butchery of humankind. They are carrying out the gravest from of criminology: to kill somebody. What else can you do? You can’t do more than killing a person. And they say this is not a crime? Is it a good thing to blow up the mosques and disrespect the Quran and Hadith? They say that these are 'criminal allegations' on them; you are carrying out mass murders and then you say they are putting 'criminal allegations' on you?
7) Equal rights for all, poor and rich
How can the government provide this? They are all crooks and thieves. Equal rights should be provided to the poor and rich alike, however, is this practical? It is not practical.
8) Stop supporting the United States of America on the War on Terror
It would be inhumane not to support the US on the War on Terror, because supporting someone in the cause of stopping terrorism is not a bad thing. To help somebody control terrorism is a good cause and it should not stop.
9) Replace the democratic governance with the Islamic system
These people are really ignorant. On one hand, they said, 'Prophet Mohammad was involved in politics and democracy,' and now they are separating democracy from Islam. After the departure of Prophet Mohammad, everybody was sitting and Omar bin Khattab said, 'Abu Bakr should be appointed for [the duty of] Caliph,' and as soon as he said it, almost everybody started to say this. They said, 'This is now democracy; this is what people want.' They said that since a majority of people wanted Abu Bakr to be appointed as Caliph, therefore, he should be appointed as Caliph. What was this? This was democracy. Now you are saying forget about democracy and introduce Islam? Islam also talks about democracy.
10) Stop all relations with the US
They should be asked: why should Pakistan stop all relation with the US, is it because they are Kafir (infidels)? What about Russia, China, Japan, France and Germany? They are all Christians, what is so special and bad about America? Why only America? Then they will say, 'Stop all relations with all countries,' okay, then you will stand alone. They should ask Taliban, 'The machine guns and the motor vehicles that you are using, did you make them on the Islamic method?' Most of the ammunition comes from Russia, China and America. You are using it, but you don’t want any relations with America, but why? What is so bad about America that is not about Russia or China? Nothing! They are just ridiculing the Constitution of Pakistan and the word of God, Quran; nothing else.
Prophet Mohammad always maintained a good relationship with Christians. There was a Christian King, Najashi, and oftentimes Prophet Mohammad would send his Companions to go to that Christian King and seek for help. When the Companions of the Prophet came to see Najashi, he said, 'What does your Prophet say about Jesus and Mother Mary?' They would recite the Quranic Verse Maryam and that Christian King used to cry and say, 'That is very true!' That Christian King gave those Companions of the Prophet asylum and he helped them. Now, you want to cut off all sorts of relationship with America? The question is, why? Is America stopping you from building a mosque or from introducing Sharia Law? America will not stop you from adopting Sharia and Islam. [You may] adopt Sharia and Islam, but how many Pakistanis want to adopt Sharia? How many half-naked women want to become practical Muslims? It is very disheartening to know, but in Pakistan most girls who go to colleges and universities are part-time prostitutes in order to maintain their lifestyle; people are dying of hunger. They are doing prostitution not as fashion, but as a matter of necessity.
People do not have food to eat and you are talking about Sharia Law. There is terror; no business is safe and no human being is safe. What kind of Sharia Law are they talking about, their own understanding of Islam and Sharia? Saudi Arabia and UAE are all behind this Taliban. Saudi Arabia is the worst enemy of humanity. They are spending all their gold-money and petrol-money on these atrocities and to help and support Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The UK and USA must stop Saudi Arabia from helping the terrorists. Saudi Arabia is a white collar terrorist; they are enjoying themselves in their palaces and they have hired lunatic and emotional Muslims. They are doing everything; every prince has 200 young girls. Where is Islam?
Now Syria is under the control of Al-Qaeda and Taliban. There is a fatwa (verdict) from Saudi Arabia, 'These Mujahideen of Taliban and Al-Qaeda, who are fighting in Syria, all Muslim girls and women should go and sleep with them. It is good. This is how you can support this cause.' You are inviting them to become prostitutes in the name of God? Is this Islam? Is this Sharia? People still think Saudis are Muslims! That is as terrible as it can be. They said for the women to go sleep with the Mujahideen and even have kids with them, without entering into Nikkah (marriage). They are inviting Muslim women to commit adultery in the name of God, in the name of Islam, and they say this will be a great act of Ajr (reward). They are the real culprits, these Saudis. They are fooling the Pakistanis. The Saudis have big palaces in Pakistan, and who gave it to them? The politicians of Pakistan. Pakistan has relationships with America, this is why you want to destroy Pakistan? But, what about Saudi Arabia, do they not have a relationship with America? If Pakistanis are infidels and hypocrites because they have a relationship with America, what about the Saudis? They have stronger ties with America than the Pakistanis. Why are they not bad? Why are they not wrong? The governors and politicians of Pakistan are bastards; neither do they have any interest in Islam nor do they care about Pakistan. They have no religion. Their religion is only money and the devil; nothing else.

On February 13, 2014, ThatChannel in Toronto interviewed Mr Ikhlaq Gohar and Mr Imran Saeed from Messiah Foundation Canada. They discussed our message, the teachings of His Divine Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and His Holiness Younus AlGohar's upcoming visit! His Holiness Younus AlGohar will speak in Toronto on March 30, 2014.
His Holiness Younus AlGohar explains what it really means to be a follower of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi in this mind-blowing speech!
This speech is in Urdu, however an English translation will be available soon.
His Holiness Younus AlGohar delivers an extremely important and crucial message to the world about the Taliban and their future plans. He explains how labeling the Taliban as religious extremists is incorrect and an understatement. A must-see for all, especially our leaders around the world.
This speech has also been summarised in:

The following is an excerpt of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech (video above).
What Taliban are doing is not religious extremism and it is not fanaticism. We understand very clearly and we would like to enlighten other deserving members of humanity to the fact that this strange, perverse atrocity that Taliban is carrying out in this world indicates very clearly the upcoming mischief of the Anti-Christ (Dajjal). I would like to furnish my claim with a very considerable reasoning, and that is: had it been merely an act of extremism, they would not be wanting to take control of the world. They are now controlling Iraq, Syria and now they are on the edge of gaining control of Pakistan.
I would like to draw the attention of the all communities, especially of the President of United States of America, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the General Secretary of the United Nations to be vigilant on the issues of securing Pakistan’s nuclear facility; because if Taliban gains control of Pakistan (which is not very far from likelihood), then the world and its peace would be in great potential jeopardy.
The United States of America and the United Kingdom should monitor the situation very earnestly, because if the Taliban gain control of Pakistan, then obviously they would have access to everything in Pakistan. I would like to inform the United States of America and the United Kingdom that do not take Saudi Arabia as your friend. They cannot be trusted. They may be posing to you as if they are your friends and they are trying their best to help you in the War against Terrorism, but on the other hand, they are the ones who have initiated this movement of terrorism. They are the ones who are funding and supporting Al-Qaeda and Taliban. Wherever in the world the Taliban and the Al-Qaeda are, they are funded financially and morally supported by Saudi Arabia. They should monitor these countries very closely. And some of these individuals who are on the higher positions in these countries, like Obama and our Prime Minister, they may not be spiritually motivated or interested in spirituality; but they should know that this War on Terror cannot be won without the help of Lord Jesus Christ and Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi.
What you can do today is to keep your country clean and tidy; and how do you do that? Monitor the mosques, especially the mosques run by the Saudi establishment and funded by the Saudi establishment - because in these mosques what they teach is not Islam. They are giving them the doctrine of hatred, of civil crimes, religious crimes, moral crimes - crimes against humanity.
Mehdi Foundation International, Messiah Foundation International, and Kalki Avatar Foundation are the followers of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and they are friends of humanity. We are friends of peace-loving people, whether you believe in any religion or you don’t; as long as you love peace and love, we are your friends. That is my message for today.
