This film has recently come to the attention of Muslims in the Arab world when scenes from the film were translated into Arabic and uploaded onto YouTube. Consequently, in the Libyan city of Benghazi a group of people set the American embassy on fire, killing the American Ambassador along with three other diplomats, who died as a result of suffocation caused by the fire. In addition the American embassies in Yemen and Egypt were attacked. Protests are also being held in Pakistan, Bangladesh and other countries. These types of issues come up from time to time. Sometimes a Danish newspaper prints cartoons with the intent to mock Prophet Mohammad and now this new issue is a very blasphemous act.
The producer of the film has shown that Prophet Mohammad was born two years after the demise of Abdullah therefore they are saying the Prophet does not have a father. Unfortunately Muslims cannot answer this question but I, being Representative of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi, would like to answer this question and I would like the whole word to take a note of this answer.
The producer may be very happy in his heart that he has ignited an unanswerable debate and no Muslim can answer on this subject. But His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is here, Imam Mehdi is here and Imam Mehdi is going to do the justice.
Prophet Mohammad is as holy as the Messenger in Judaism, as the Messenger in Christianity or any other Messenger who may have been sent by God to establish any other religion. Other religions may not believe that Prophet Mohammad is the Leader of the Prophets but they will have to believe the fact that Prophet Mohammad is a true Messenger from God and is the founder of the latest religion, Islam. Islam is a religion of peace, a religion of love, a religion of cleanliness, but this is the first time somebody has come up and presented, projected some contradictory points.
This is a very blasphemous act. Blasphemy is of two types, one is to accuse somebody wrongly, disrespect them and one is character assassination, to distort the reality, slander, place allegations and to attribute somebody wrongly to that Personality. In my opinion this is an ideological attack.
This film ‘Innocence of Muslims’ is not merely intended to blaspheme the Prophet of Islam but at the same time it is aimed at distorting the image of the Prophet Mohammad and the image of the religion of Islam and the goodwill of Islam and the authenticity of the religion. This film is not a proper film. This film was shot and initially the story was about ancient Egypt and then with some mischievous mastermind, dubbing was done on the film. It is said the film is a $5 million budgeted movie. That is not true; it appears to be a home production. The quality of the film suggests that this movie was not created by Hollywood. Had it been created by Hollywood it would have gone to the Toronto Film Festival, which never happened. It is also learned through different sources available on the internet like Reuters and other news agencies that the priest in Florida who burned the Quran in Florida and then went to Michigan and did the same in Michigan, is actively involved and he is being the centre of motivation behind this film. A hate crime can go to any extreme.
Many questions are raised in the film and many points have been slandered about and allegations and the image that the producer has depicted of Islam and distortion of the image of Prophet Mohammad is strongly deplored and it is vehemently deplorable. Such an act cannot be attempted by any religious person no matter what religion does he belong to. As far as my understanding is concerned, this is a conspiracy to provoke Muslims and disturb the global peace at least one more time and to stir up the restful minds of the citizens of the world.
Now, the producer said in the film as he depicted that Prophet Mohammad was born two years later than the demise of Abdullah therefore the Prophet does not have a father and they used a b-word. It is true Prophet Mohammad was born two years after the demise of the husband of the Prophet’s mother. So what? Jesus Christ doesn’t have a father at all, what does it mean? I totally understand and I agree that Prophet Mohammad was born two years later than the demise of Abdullah but what does it suggest? A filthy dirty mind can think of one thing only. That is his problem and it has nothing to do with reality. The problem is even the Muslims cannot comment on this particular subject because their knowledge is very limited and if it is not available in the Hadith (Prophetic Traditions) and in the Quran then they are really helpless. They cannot say anything on this topic.
But I would like to convey this piece of truth to the world and I would like to tell them that His Divine Grace the Awaited Imam Mehdi, Gohar Shahi declares that Prophet Mohammad is not a son of man. Prophet Mohammad is not son of Abdullah so it doesn’t matter whether he is born after his demise or before his demise because it has nothing to do with Abdullah. Prophet Mohammad is NOT the son of Abdullah and it should be clear in the minds of everybody today.
Who is Mohammad?
You see sometimes God says something which keeps your heart restive and keeps your mind wandering about seeking for reality. When God is exhibiting his powers and his unknown intelligence, maybe he forgets that what he is doing might appear to the world as a contradiction. But unfortunately God is carefree and humanity has to pay for his carefreeness. Now Prophet Mohammad was born two years after the demise of Abdullah and then in Quran you hear a different story. The Quran says, ‘Say I am a man like you.’
If you go into the depth and you have the Spiritual Insight and you are spiritually connected with God and the Prophet himself then you will find out what is the real story. But if you are dependent upon what you read in the book it is not just possible to reach the reality without being assisted by the Prophet himself or by God.
The Awaited One, Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi said Gabriel came to visit the mother of the Prophet, Amina (the same angel who appeared to Sara the wife of Abraham). Sara was barren and she was not able to produce children. There was something wrong with her ovaries and she was not able to conceive a child. As a result of this incapacity of Sara, God advised Abraham to find a concubine and produce a child. Therefore an Egyptian named Hagar was approached and turned into a concubine and a child was conceived in the womb of that concubine from Egypt, Ismael. Later on God wanted to test Abraham, so when the child was still in his infancy, God commanded Abraham to leave the child and the mother in the mountains of Mecca. So he did. Then a series of miracles emerged. The little child was thirsty and he was running his legs upside down on the mountain and water erupted from underneath his feet which is now called ‘zam zam’. After God commanded Abraham to quit Ismael, his son, and his concubine Hager, Abraham returned to Sara and sometime later the Archangel Gabriel appeared and said to Abraham, ‘God is going to give you a child from your barren wife.’ Look at the mysterious ways of God. He could have done it before but he didn’t do it. Abraham said but she is a barren woman how can she conceive a child? Gabriel said, ‘What God wishes, it happens.’ Abraham was left with no other words but to say yes you are right and Gabriel ran his palm over the backbone of Sara and this is how she conceived Isaac. Is there anybody in the entire western, eastern, northern, southern world who could say with authority and authenticity that Isaac is a son of man and his father is unknown? Abraham’s wife Sara was barren woman. She was not able to conceive a child but then she conceived a child who later on became the leader of Bani Israel, Isaac. His father is unknown. If Prophet Mohammad’s father is unknown today I do not see anything wrong with that. It doesn’t surprise me; it shouldn’t surprise you either as long as you have some common sense in your brain.
Now the father of Jesus not known, the father of Isaac is not known. The leader of Christianity, the father of Jesus is not known. The most authentic Prophet in the Abrahamic faith, the father religion, Judaism is Isaac, the father of Bani Israel (Children of Israel) and his father is not known. If Prophet Mohammad’s father is not known it shouldn’t surprise you because your Prophetic ancestral system does not have a father. But is it a bad thing not to have a father? If it is a bad thing not to have a father then the entire humanity is bastard because Adam doesn’t have a father. If not having a father is bad then the entire humanity is a bastard because Adam doesn’t have a father and we are all children of Adam. Whether it is from England, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, all come from one progeny, the progeny of Adam and Adam doesn’t have a father. If he doesn’t have a father does it mean Adam is a bastard? [Freedom of Speech] Why? Is it because he is Adam? He was created by God in the paradise.
I agree Prophet Mohammad doesn’t have a father. That is true. This is not a disputed matter. Prophet Mohammad doesn’t have a father but then how was he conceived? How was he born? Who is Prophet Mohammad? Who is his father? We know how Adam was created. It makes sense because we all believe whether according to the Quran or Bible or Torah or Talmud or Psalms of David, God is able to do anything. God can do anything and not just the Muslims but also Christians and Jews believe it. God can really do anything, even things that you cannot expect him to do.
His Divine Grace Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi explains, ‘The same Archangel Gabriel who appeared to Abraham and ran his palm over Sara’s backbone and Isaac was conceived, the same Archangel Gabriel appeared to the mother of Prophet Mohammad.’
What did he do? He brought a white liquid with him and then he mixed a special Seed of Light which he brought with him from the Higher Realms (Alam-e-Jabrout) and that seed is called Shajarah tul Noor (Seed of Light). He gave it to the mother of Prophet Mohammad, Amina. She drank it and with that drink she became pregnant. This is how Prophet Mohammad was conceived.
Jesus Christ was conceived after God used his power of Command Be. In the Bible Jesus said I am the light of the heavens and the worlds. In the Quran God said,
قَدْ جَاءَكُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَابٌ مُبِينٌ
Surely Noor (Divine Light), light from God has reached you and the Holy Quran. Two things are mentioned in this verse, the light from God and the Holy Quran. ‘Kitab un Mubeen’ is referred to the Quran but what about this Noor? What is this Noor referred to? This Noor is referred to Prophet Mohammad. This is Prophet Mohammad’s personal introduction to himself.
Prophet Mohammad said that himself, ‘In the first instance when God initiated the act of creation, the first thing he created was my Noor.’ (اول خلق اللہ ما نوری)
Then Prophet Mohammad said, ‘I am from the light of God (Noor) and Momineen were created with my Noor.’ (انا من نور اللہ والمومنین من نوری)
Prophet Mohammad also said, ‘One who has seen me he has surely seen God.’
The reality of Prophet Mohammad is Noor. Prophet Mohammad doesn’t have a father, Isaac doesn’t have a father, Jesus doesn’t have a father because these Personalities are special creations of God and it is up to God what method of creation does he use, to produce such Spiritual Dignitaries. It is entirely up to God. Sexual reproduction is not the only way of production. There are many types of reproduction. For example a female peacock drinks the teardrops of the male peacock and this is how the female peacock becomes pregnant. This is not sexual reproduction, is it? There are more than one ways of production so it is entirely up to God what method of reproduction does he want to use. He is able to do anything and from time to time he gives examples to let people know that he is using different methods.
Prophet Mohammad, in reality is not a human being but the Light of God in the form of a human being. For example, two angels, Harut and Marut were sent to Egypt and they taught somebody magical words as a result of which they were punished by God and still they are hanging upside down in a water-well in a city of Egypt, Babylon. They came in the guise of a man but just because they came in the guise of a man does it change their reality? It doesn’t change their reality.
To makes things simple, these actors and actresses who appear in the movies, when they are playing a character in the movie does it change their reality? It doesn’t change their reality. In a similar way God has sent many different types of human beings. Some human beings were made of fire and some human beings were made of clay. Some human beings were made of clay from the Higher Realms, heaven, while most of the humans were made with the clay of this earth.
Prophet Mohammad in reality is an image of God. The Bible said God created man in his own image and Prophet Mohammad said, ‘God said I created Adam in my own image.’ But as we understand Adam is not the first creation. The first creation is the soul of Prophet Mohammad. He created Prophet Mohammad in his own image. Jesus is also the image of God. Abraham is also the image of God. If you disgrace, derogate, defame or blaspheme these Holy Dignitaries you are only pushing yourself to hellfire. Not only the fact that you are pushing yourself into hellfire by doing such indecent, immoral acts but also it announces to the world how filthy, how dirty and how immoral you are.
Indeed Prophet Mohammad does not have a father but the Prophet Isaac and Jesus Christ also do not have a father. The Prophet Isaac was conceived after the Archangel Gabriel touched his palm on Sara's backbone and Jesus Christ was conceived after God used his power of Command Be and the Prophet Mohammad was conceived after the Archangel Gabriel gave Amina a white liquid mixed with a Seed of Light which she drank and conceived Prophet Mohammad. If not having a father concludes to being a bastard then the entire humanity is bastard because Adam too does not have a father.
