His Holiness Younus AlGohar explains the real reason behind the Devil's enmity towards Adam, how the Devil was appointed to be what he is today and what classifies as a true evil act.
- People of the world today are under the wrong impression of what a true evil act is. Religious people think those who drink alcohol or go to night clubs and casinos are engaged in evil acts. However, the fact of the matter is that neither has the Devil created night clubs or casinos, nor has he ever been seen drinking alcohol. Such acts are actually pseudo-evil. The Lord said that one who is involved in real evil acts will be a great worshipper and at the same time will bear jealousy, malice, grudge, envy etc. That is who the real Devil is.
- The Devil, in fact, was a great worshipper of God and many saints testified to his love for God. After he successfully worshipped God in every nook and cranny of the world, God promoted him to the Realm of Angels. However, sadly, this promotion of the Devil was not genuine. It was a Divine Plan. God was creating Adam Safi Allah and granting him the knowledge of eminence; he needed to make sure when Adam was descended into the world he would be faced with calamities and hurdles, therefore, the Devil was appointed.
- The Devil was purposefully shown the body of Adam, he refused to prostrate before Adam because Adam's body was made of clay and his body was made of fire. He felt pride. However, when he found out that Adam had been granted the knowledge of eminence, which is to be absorbed by the subtleties in the breast, he felt extremely jealous. He knew that God had created him as a Jinn which meant he did not possess the inner faculties which would allow him to adopt the knowledge of eminence. Knowing that he could never become eminent drove him into the pit of eternal hopelessness.
- The Devil vowed to God that he would kidnap the inner faculties of the ones who became heedless of the spiritual knowledge, so as to ensure they never come to know of it. The Devil is not bothered when you go to worship places; in fact, he stand and laughs in a corner because he knows that is not the spiritual knowledge. This is why those who acquire the knowledge of eminence become victims of the enmity of the Devil. He will leave no stone unturned in attempting to afflict your inner faculties with esoteric vices. Jealousy, malice, grudge and envy are true evil acts.
- However, even the Devil found salvation at the feet of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. The curse of eternal hopelessness was lifted by HDE Gohar Shahi, as the knowledge He brought to the world has nothing to do with the subtleties.
