Recognising the Awaited One with the Help of Scripture

The following is a translation of highlights from His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech. The original speech will be available soon. 

God said to Prophet Mohammad,

قُلۡ هُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ

Say, 'God is one.'

And the Prophet said, 'Ameen.' Now, Muslims already believe that God is one; then who do they ask to confirm that God is one during Salat (prayer)? They ask their hearts to say it; however, the heart struggles to say it because it is occupied with the thoughts of the world. One whose heart struggles to confirm the truth is a hypocrite.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is the Awaited One: many titles, one personality. For example, water is just water; however, it is also known as 'Aab' and 'Maa' in other languages. In a similar way, HDE Gohar Shahi has been awaited for centuries and different nations call upon Him with different titles. The Jews and Christians await the Promised Messiah, Hindus await Kalki Avatar, and the Muslims await Imam Mehdi.

Prophet Mohammad's arrival was foretold in the Bible, whereas the advent of Imam Mehdi has been foretold in all Holy Scriptures.

A scholar from India, Dr Zakir Naik, has claimed that Prophet Mohammad himself is the Kalki Avatar. This man and many other like-minded scholars do not have any idea what they are talking about. First of all, if Prophet Mohammad is the Kalki Avatar, then why did he disallow the worship of idols? On top of that, why did he give the order of destroying 360 idols from Kaaba?

Secondly, why didn't Prophet Mohammad grant spiritual benevolence to the Hindus? If this was the truth, why have you found out about Prophet Mohammad being Kalki Avatar 1436 years after his arrival? Do you think God forgot to mention such a huge thing? Did the saints and dervishes not receive any divine inspiration that Prophet Mohammad is Kalki Avatar? If you believe that Prophet Mohammad is Kalki Avatar, then why have you forbidden the entrance of Hindus into the Kaaba and the Medina?

Prophet Mohammad already came and went, whereas, Kalki Avatar has yet to come! Kalki Avatar is supposed to come in Kalyug (the Dark Ages).

The Muslims solely depend on the books of Hadith (Traditions of the Prophet), but the problem is that these books have no authenticity today. This is because not a single book was written at the time of Prophet Mohammad; rather, the first book was printed almost 200 years after the departure of Prophet Mohammad. The Quran has been made subject to modifications and alterations for generations, how can one consider it to still be authentic? Even the Bible has been tampered with; there are almost 4000 different versions of the Bible available today. Every single person believes the book of their religion to be authentic; however, what guarantee do they have that their respective holy books are in the same condition today as they were when they were originally sent?

The Quran we have in our hands today, is it the original copy of Quran? Can anyone prove that this Quran is the same Quran which was revealed unto the heart of Prophet Mohammad? There are many different books of Hadith today. For example, 'Muslim Sharif' has been changed to 'Sahih Muslim,' and 'Bukhari Sharif' has been changed to 'Sahih Bukhari.' 'Sahih' means 'correct;' this must mean that these books were incorrect, which is why the scholars and clerics took it upon themselves to rectify and amend these books. Can they explain as to how and on what grounds did they amend the books of Hadiths? To tamper with the matters of religion is to in fact sell the religion.

When some Christians are told of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, they immediately quote the verse of Bible in which Jesus warns his disciples to beware of false prophets [Matthew 24:4-5]. However, if Christians will deny all who claim to be Jesus Christ, then what will happen when Jesus himself appears before them? What should he say to them, 'I am Jesus, but I am not Jesus'? Some Christians say that Jesus Christ will come from behind the clouds. Jesus explained what 'behind the clouds' means. He said, '"Clouds" refers to doubts; I will come from behind an atmosphere where people have doubts.' People won't even realise that Jesus Christ has already arrived.

Muslims are trying to recognise Imam Mehdi in the light of Hadiths which have been tampered with, altered and modified.Most of these Hadiths are exactly the same; however, one or two words are changed here and there. Therefore, if these books of Hadiths cannot be considered authentic, how will you identify and recognise the Awaited Imam Mehdi with the help of these books?

The Holy Scripture of the Jews is called the Talmud. It is written in the Talmud that Messiah would be the Lord Himself [Isaiah 9:6].

The Dajjal (Anti-Christ) is known as Masih-Dajjal; this means that he is the fake Messiah because he is going to claim to be Imam Mehdi.

We need to spread this message across the world: the books and holy scriptures that people have in their possession have firstly, expired, and secondly, with all the modifications and alterations in these books and scriptures, you will never be able to acquire the truth. Furthermore, you did not become good Muslims, good Christians or good Jews with the help of these books and scriptures; how will you identify or recognise Imam Mehdi, Kalki Avatar and Messiah with them?

His Holiness Younus AlGohar's message to the army of Pakistan

Now that you have begun your operation of annihilating the Taliban, you must bring it to completion. And when trouble strikes, call upon His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi and say, 'If you are the Awaited Imam Mehdi who has been appointed and anointed by God, then help us!' Those who are in the army or in the navy and are indecisive about HDE Gohar Shahi should test Him by calling upon Him for help - and then see what happens to the Taliban. If you are helped, then you must believe that HDE Gohar Shahi is the Awaited Imam Mehdi.
