Younus AlGohar speaks on the misconceptions about God’s love that most Muslims have.
- The main goal of every religion has been God’s love. There is a misconception about divine love: people think their worship and fasting is proof of their love for God. However if we ask them, ‘If you wife does everything for you, is that a guarantee that she loves you?’ So then how are your prayers, fasting and giving of alms guarantors of your love for God? It may be that your wife cleans your clothes, looks after your kids and cooks and cleans because she lives in your house; if she doesn’t you might divorce her. Similarly you might worship to avoid hell.
- If Muslims would become a lover of God from worship, why are they separated into different denominations? The first condition in Islam, the core of the religion, is declaration by the tongue and affirmation by the heart - which Muslims today don’t have. Their hearts don’t have divine energy; they don’t have faith.
- Proof that Muslims today are not Momineen (true believers): according to the Quran, God said they would be dominant upon the world as long as they were Momineen. Today, Muslims are not dominant upon the world; rather they are suffering. This proves they are not Momineen.
