Today, the entire region of the West is familiar with this name, “Imam Mehdi”. Maybe 40-50 years ago, if you asked a white or black American, “Who is Imam Mehdi?” they’d probably say, “I don’t know”, but today, if you ask anyone in any developed country, they’d say, “Yes, we know Imam Mehdi, we’ve heard about him”.
Unfortunately, the information that has reached them about Imam Mehdi is not true. The introduction of Imam Mehdi, which has reached the Westerners comes from different groups, different countries and of different nature. It is an irony and it is pathetic that when you mention Imam Mehdi to a Westerner, instantly they think of Islamic militancy. We all know that certain fractions in Islam, such as Wahhabis do not believe in the arrival of Imam Mehdi in this world, and then another fraction within Islam (Shiite Islam) are considered to the champions in regards to the concept of Imam Mehdi.
All Westerners who have done research on Islam, they would tell you that Imam Mehdi is from Shiite Islam. Recently, a militant organisation was founded in Iraq, and it was named “The Army of Mehdi” (Jaish Mehdi). And they were of course terrorists/extremists. The main purpose of that militant organisation was to kill American and British soldiers in Iraq. But they named it “The Army of Mehdi”, and according to the American survey report, when Al-Qaeda is taken care of by the American army, “The Army of Mehdi” became the substitute terrorist organisation in Iraq. All the terrorist activities carried out by Al-Qaeda, “The Army of Mehdi” became the make-shift version of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.
When a Westerner hears about it and the name ‘Mehdi’ is attached with terrorists, and these terrorists say to them “Imam Mehdi is the leader of Islam; when he comes he will kill all Kafireen, all Christians and all Jews”, the Western world will definitely take the impression that Imam Mehdi is their opposition.
I am giving you a broader view of the potential scope of Imam Mehdi and of the mission in the Western world. This has become a very critical and delicate matter. What will happen tomorrow, when we, who talk about love and global peace, who truly belong to the true Imam Mehdi, would want to convey our message to all nations of the world; what would we expect from the Western world? Resilience? Resentment? Or do we expect them to embrace this message with open arms?
Minds of the West have been polluted with wrong concepts and wrong misleading misconceptions. Today, the Western world understands and their understanding is based on the information that has reached them. It’s not just one single organisation in Iraq that is passing on misleading misconceptions about “Mehdi”; but you should be aware of the fact that the President of Iran, Ahmed-e-Nijad, ‘has’ to mention Imam Mehdi in every speech he makes. “Hasten the arrival of Imam Mehdi. He will take the revenge! He will force everybody to become Muslim!” These people are real culprits. Ahmed-e-Nijad, the President of Iran is the enemy of Imam Mehdi and an enemy of Humanity!
I would like to convey the truthful message to the Western world that Imam Mehdi (as) is not a Muslim leader. Imam Mehdi is not a leader of Islam. Imam Mehdi is the leader of humanity. Imam Mehdi is a unifier. He is not going to convert people from their religions to Islam. He will not convert anyone from one religion to another religion of the same calibre. Imam Mehdi comes with a brand-new religion and the beauty of that religion is that when it is presented to you, none of the religions that exist today will have an objection on accepting it. So, Imam Mehdi is not going to convert anyone into Islam. He is going to convert the hearts into the dwelling place of God.
Let me give you the revolutionary message of Imam Mehdi to the humanity:
Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi says, ‘A Muslim thinks he’s the best of all. A Jew thinks that he is better than a Muslim. The Christian thinks that he is better than both Muslim and Jew, because they are the nation of God’s son. But Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi says, ‘the best among all of you is one who has God’s love’.
Imam Mehdi has come to curb extremism, terrorism and fanaticism. It is remotely likely that he would ever think of forming a militant organisation, because he has a mammoth and the most effective weapon with him. In his eyes the most effective weapon is love. He is going to wage a war, but his war is not between human beings. His war is between good and evil, between love and hatred.
Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi says, “The love of God is for all deserving individuals regardless of their religious affiliation”.
Whoever wants to love is welcomed, no questions asked about your religion. The only weapon Imam Mehdi takes pride in carrying is the weapon of Love. Imam Mehdi is not a leader of Islam. Imam Mehdi is not going to spread Islam. Imam Mehdi is going to spread love and global peace. And my friends, if you think that these are my own concocted thoughts, then I give you a reference from the Muslim book. For the end times the Quran said:
When the faithful ones quit their religions, God will send his own nation on earth and they will love God and God will love them.
According to Bible all those people who love God are children of God and according to Quran all these people who love God are Gods nation. What is the difference? Children of God are Gods nation.
Why would Imam Mehdi hate Christians when Prophet Mohammad said to his Ummah, “How nice would be your spiritual matters when Jesus would be among you and Mehdi will also be among you?” Why would Imam Mehdi hate Christians when God is sending Jesus to support Imam Mehdi? Why would Imam Mehdi hate Americans and Jews? Forget about Jews and Christians, Imam Mehdi does not hate anybody. As a matter of fact Imam Mehdi cannot hate anybody because he is not familiar with hatred. He is only familiar with love because like God, the Bible says, “One who does not know love, does not know God, for God is love and love is God”. Imam Mehdi is love from head to toe. Imam Mehdi has come to make human beings love each other and to make human beings love God.
Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi says, “One who cannot appreciate human love, cannot ascend to divine love”. Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi is the Messenger of Love and Global Peace.
You would be really surprised to know what His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said about Jesus. He said, “Had the Quran not denied the fact that Jesus is the Son of God, then everybody would have adopted Christianity, because they would want to become a member of the nation of God’s son, because God’s son is superior to all other prophets and humans.’ Imam Mehdi heralds the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
In the year 1997, Lord Jesus Christ, having returned from the celestial realms paid a visit to His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, while HDE Gohar Shahi was in New Mexico, USA. They had healthy discussions and according to the Ahadith of Prophet Mohammad, both Mehdi and Jesus would be present on Earth in the same era, same time frame. Imam Mehdi would appoint Lord Jesus Christ to wage a war against the Anti-Christ and all the hateful souls. I would like to draw your attention towards this truthful introduction, an original introduction of the true Imam Mehdi. Imam Mehdi has come for the entire humanity. Imam Mehdi is not the enemy of Russia, America, Britain or any other country. Imam Mehdi is not party to any country, Imam Mehdi is love and is appreciated by those who seek love.
I would like to draw your attention to the fact that Imam Mehdi is supposed to introduce the Religion of God. Those who say that Imam Mehdi would revive Islam, and he would convert all human beings into Muslims, that does not fit into the criteria depicted by the Quran. If Imam Mehdi is going to revive Islam and make everybody a Muslim; after Imam Mehdi there is no more world, when will Imam Mehdi establish the religion of God? According to Quran towards the end times the Religion of God would be established and even Prophet Mohammad would become a member of the Religion of God.
This is a very misleading concept. All these Muslims scholars should think about it and stop saying that Imam Mehdi will revive Islam. If you say this you are going against the Quran and God’s plan. This is the time for when God has decided to send his own religion and let human beings share divine love and adopt his personal religion which is nothing but divine love. How do we understand it to be wrong? Even the Quran says so.
How close is Imam Mehdi’s era to the end of the world? God said, “If Imam Mehdi did not turn up even on the last day of Qiyamah (Day of Judgement), then God would prolong that day until Imam Mehdi comes”. This is how close the era of Imam Mehdi is to the end of the world. If you say that Imam Mehdi will revive Islam, who would establish the religion of God?
Imam Mehdi is NOT the leader of Islam; he is the leader of Humanity. The way that Quran depicts the religion of God to be ‘Deen-e-Qayyam’, similarly another of Imam Mehdi’s title is ‘Imam-e-Qaayam’. Another title is, ‘The Leader of Justice’ (Imam-e-Insaf). I give the meaning of Imam Mehdi from the Quran to the Muslims and non-Muslims alike, why? Because what the Quran says is true and what the Muslims are saying is not true.
Surah-e-Yaseen says, “We have stored all the attributes of all the prophets and messengers in one personality and that personality is Imam Um Mubeen (The Lucid Leader)”.
Imam Mehdi has the characteristics and attributes of all the messengers and all the prophets, why so? Because those who follow Moses they can relate to Imam Mehdi. Imam Mehdi has the characteristics and attributes of Moses, Abraham, Adam, Jesus and Mohammad. You name it and you have it in Imam Mehdi and more attributes of the similar sort Moses had, an even better version of Adam, Abraham and Mohammad.
The Quran says, “O’ Prophet Mohammad, you’re next era is better than your current era”.
That is what the Quran says and when Muslims say to you that Imam Mehdi is going to spread Islam, they are fooling themselves and misleading you. Imam Mehdi has nothing to do with extremism, terrorism or fanaticism. Imam Mehdi is peace and love and he is going to unify the entire humanity by uniting their hearts with the same light of God. God's Religion is to be established in this world and Imam Mehdi is the last hope for the humanity. Imam Mehdi's message and teachings are Love for all. Imam Mehdi is the utter symbol of Love and Peace, the emblem of love and tower of peace.
When other prophets came into the world, some of the other progeny of Adam joined other religions therefore you became dispersed into many religions. , now the time has come for the last Caliph of the world. According to the Quran, Adam was the First Caliph (vice-gerent) of God. The First Caliph, Adam; his teachings were for all his progeny, and the Last Caliph, Imam Mehdi; his teachings are for the entire progeny of Adam.
Hadith: “O’ Progeny of Adam. There is a lump of flesh in your body. If that is corrected your entire body is corrected. If it is impure your entire body is impure. Remember well it is your heart.”
The Prophet here talks to the entire progeny of Adam, not just to the Muslims. First you are from the progeny of Adam, not Muslim, Jew or Christian. You are first from the progeny of Adam, and then you are a Muslim, Christian, Jew etc. You come under the judiciary of his prophet hood, and his prophet hood was based upon the enlightenment of the heart. And the Last Caliph has come with an even greater form of love and even greater spiritual organ of love. The First Caliph of God revived hearts so that you can love God, and the Last Caliph of God is coming to revive your soul so that you can arrive at the peak of love with the power of love. The doctrine of Imam Mehdi is based upon rapturous and extreme love.
Jesus is not coming for Christians only and Imam Mehdi is not coming for Muslims only, both are coming for all humanity.
