'If your heart is not enlightened, you are in an eternal and perpetual identity crisis.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
Friday 31 July 2015
The following is an excerpt from a speech by His Holiness Younus AlGohar, the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
This is the third in a three-part series on Lord Jesus Christ. For more insight, read the first article, Jesus’s Reality and the Journey from Humanity to Divinity, and the second article: Jesus’s War Against Wahhabis.
The time in which Jesus served the people did not last more than 33 months.
All the trustworthy disciples were sent off by Jesus. They sought help from God and fell asleep in a cave. Their sleep was so prolonged by God that they slept for 300 years. They woke up after 300 years, ate food and slept for 300 years again. This has been going on for the past 2000 years.
Those trustworthy disciples of Jesus are waiting for Jesus to show up in the world so they can become helpers with Jesus and His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
When all the trustworthy disciples were sent off, nobody sincere or honest was left; so Christianity was not properly organised. Then the individuals who were in secret company of Jesus came into the public and they told them about Jesus’ secret knowledge. When they spoke about it, the Christians feared, ‘They are saying the same thing that Jesus did – and he was killed.’ They did not leave any stone unturned in rejecting what they were saying; they did not want any calamity coming upon them.
These Christians today are those who have come to know of Jesus by reading about Jesus in the Bible and in the books. It is the only source of their knowledge. When they do not know anything else and a different concept is publicised which is in total disagreement with what they read in the Bible, they get offended. They become furious; they have their apprehensions and fears. They retaliate.
The more the practice of the religion they are into, the more retaliation will come from them. It will take some time for them to understand spirituality.
Once they understand spirituality, then they will come to believe in the truth. Not everybody will believe in the truth.
In the entire human history, there has always been a fraction of human beings who believed in the truth; and from among them, there were only a few individuals who believed in the truth and embraced the truth practicality.
There are many people in Christianity who believe in spirituality; but the majority of Orthodox Christians do not. However, spirituality has always been considered part of Christianity. When Jews spoke of spirituality they were dismissed, rejected and there was a movement against them. Orthodox Jews do not believe in Kabbalah; they hate it. In comparison to Jews, more common Christians believe in the spirituality. Christians are famous for being spiritual people.
However, now spirituality has become extinct; you only know the word. The practical approach, the practical doctrine and the power and authority of Initiation of the Heart (Invocation of the Heart) have become a forgotten truth.
When this truth was forgotten by Christians, their glory faded away. Now we have more than 5000 different versions of the Bible. Christians are not into religion anymore. They celebrate Christmas but not for any religious reasons, but rather because they find an element of festivity in celebrating it.
About 8 or 9 years ago, we had a stall set up. There was this Christian man who was in his late 50’s. Somebody said to him, ‘Jesus has come back.’
He said, ‘Shut up. Do you want him to be killed again?’
He cried and said, ‘I wish I could see Jesus, but don’t say Jesus has come back. He has a lot of enemies; they will kill him again.’
There are people who genuinely and naturally love Jesus, who would love to see Jesus; however the doctrine of fear and concocted stories which have been passed on from generation to generation have become fundamental ethos of their religion.
Now, it is almost impossible to convince them by word of mouth. They need a spiritual injection which can clarify everything in their heart.
Only the Spiritual Revolution which will come about in their heart will change their heart and thought-process.
Without spirituality, nobody will change.

'Divine and evil cannot co-exist. One has to depart in order for the other to arrive.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
On Friday, 31 July, we will witness a rare natural phenomenon: the Blue Moon. This means that this month, there will be two Full Moons. The next Blue Moon of this kind will not occur until 2018!
So while you are out trying to catch a glimpse of the Blue Moon, why not take the opportunity to investigate the images of the Awaited Ones Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ on the Moon? These divine signs are capable of performing many miracles!
Tuesday 28 July 2015
The following is an excerpt from a speech by His Holiness Younus AlGohar, the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
This is the first in the three-part series on Lord Jesus Christ. Read the second part, Jesus's War Against Wahhabis, and the third part, What Christianity Needs Today, for more insight.
What I am discussing here is the possibility of comprehending the truth of the Unseen World and its inhabitants. Never before His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi was it disclosed by any messenger, prophet or saint that there is another world beyond these horizons. Besides Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, there is only one account whereby Lord Jesus Christ spoke of the Unseen World and the Kingdom of God.
You only read the Bible and books; you came to know of Jesus while you were reading the divine stories in those books. Today, with the kind of life you are living, you do not appear to relate to the life that Jesus lived in this world.
Jesus spoke to the people, ‘Come! I am the only way to the Father. Only through me will you reach the Father. He said to them, ‘You are not worthy of Adam; you are not worthy of Abraham. What did they know? What would they tell you? I will tell you and take you to a special place which no heart has ever wished for, which no ears have ever heard of: I’ll take you to the Kingdom of God.’
The Jews became enemies of Jesus because they thought that Jesus was speaking very low of Abraham and Moses. But they failed to suss out the authority and command in the voice of Lord Jesus Christ.
They did not have the spiritual criteria with the help of which they could gather how a person may be wrong who possesses the spiritual and divine calibre of restoring sight in those who were born blind! How may the person be wrong, who works miracles? They only looked at one side of the picture: that he was speaking very low of Abraham and Moses. This happens when you do not know who is speaking; you already have this thought in your mind that, ‘This person is common person and he is like us. How can he speak [like this]?’
The Fear Factor in Humanity
The problem with people who come from the Unseen World is: they are not human.
When you are not human, it is next to impossible to take a guise of a human: to act like a human, to feel like a human and to have fear like a human does.
Because by nature, you are not afraid of anybody. By nature, you do not know what death is. You have never heard of death, illness or pain. In addition, you are not aware of the concept of doing good so that you can enter into paradise and not doing bad so that you are not pushed into hellfire. When you have no concept of such things, you become very carefree with your tongue.
For example, there are all sorts of people in this world, people like goons. Goons think they are very strong and can beat up everybody, so then they are afraid of none. They have this realisation in them that they are afraid of none, nobody can even look at them with disgust, and that they are very powerful. Wherever they go, people will lower their gaze and not put a question to them. When you become a person as such, you become very carefree with your tongue.
It is fear that most of the time stops you from doing bad or saying bad things.
You can never imagine how you would feel when you do not have any fear because you are a human being. You have no value in the eyes of God. One minute you are breathing well and another minute you are in the grave or cremated. You are so uncertain of your own existence, you don’t even know after you stop living here, how you will live your next life, where you will live your next life – or whether or not there is a next life after here!
When you have fear, you become really careful. When you have no fear, then you are carefree.
This is the case with God. In one chapter of the Quran, he says one thing and in the other chapter, he says another thing. We, being humans, are so rigid in what God said in the first chapter that when we see something different from God on the same matter in the next chapter, it boggles our mind. So we happen to create rifts in the religion and many schools of different thought. This is why there are so many sects.
He says one thing in chapter one, something else in chapter two and maybe a third opinion in chapter three – because he is God! He doesn’t fear anybody. It is not like he thinks to himself, ‘If I say something [different] in the next chapter, maybe someone will come and ask me, “What are you doing?!”’ Nobody knows where he is. He is not even in contact with prophets and messengers. He sends his words and Gabriel delivers his words to prophets and messengers. Maybe he doesn’t even think, ‘I have said something [contradictory] in chapter two,’ because he fears none.
Such was the case with Jesus. His mind was clear; it was not a corrupt mind like a human being. Sometimes, we avoid telling the truth because we think, ‘If I tell the truth, it will hurt and harm people more than it can benefit them.’ So we become temporarily wise and exercise our concocted, fabricated wisdom. But Jesus is not corrupt. He came, he was happy and wanted to share the truth with low-caste human beings on Earth.
Jesus nature-wise was free. He is not under fear because he is not a human being.
I don’t think for a moment he thought that he should be a little wiser in using proper words that may not hurt others and [give people the opportunity to] dig out different meanings or take different interpretations. He didn’t think of this because he was simple, truthful; without fear. So he spoke the truth, which hurt.
He said, ‘You are not worthy of Abraham. You are fasting and engaging yourselves in futile worship. Let’s do some proper business; do you want to go up there and see where God is sitting?’
People thought, ‘Who is this? What is he saying? How can we sit with God? Abraham came; he never said he saw God. Moses came, he never saw God. And look at Jesus: he is saying, “I’ll take you to the Kingdom of God.” We have difficulty entering into paradise; we are not sure whether we will end up in hell or heaven and he is asking to take us into the Kingdom of God! What is he saying?!’
What he said was so original, so true – but too true that people failed to comprehend his message.
And then God showed to the world that he was killed.
Now we know he wasn’t killed. But this world is all about impression.
What was on the cross was somebody who looked like Jesus – and he was killed. People developed this very rigid concept that Jesus has been killed and Jesus died on the cross; this is the fundamental principle of Christianity.
So on one hand, Jesus is telling people the original truth and he is talking about extra-existential spiritual transportation.
Fusion of the soul: changing the nature of human beings. It is like transforming somebody who is a man into God.
He was talking about transformation: a journey from humanity to divinity. A journey in which you start off being a human being and you end up being God-like. What a journey that was that he spoke about!
But then, maybe God was a little offended. Because maybe God thought, ‘If he says everything, then whatever, under the banner of religions, I have projected to human beings through the messengers and prophets would become zero. Nobody would want to love me. Nobody would want to go to the mosque, temple or church. What is Jesus doing?’
[Then God asked Jesus to come up] and he showed to the world that he was killed. Checkmate.
Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi on Lord Jesus Christ
Then, 2000 years later, came upon the page of this universe His Divine Eminence Ra Gohar Shahi. First, He verified every word uttered by Jesus.
HDE Gohar Shahi is the only one who said, ‘Jesus is not Son of Man. Jesus is not Son of God. Jesus is God.’
HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘Not only Jesus, but another couple of members of the divine society came upon this world in the guise of prophets and messengers: Enoch (Idris), Elias (Ilyas) -’ then HDE said, ‘- and Gohar Shahi too – have come from the Unseen World.’
If you want to understand the secrets of the Unseen World, you will not be able to understand them with your intellect.
Intuitional Inspiration of the Heart
You cannot understand these divine secrets with your mind.
You will understand it only when your heart is enlightened. [This doesn’t just apply to] the secret of these individuals who came from the Unseen World and HDE Gohar Shahi; but in order to understand God also, you need enlightenment of the heart.
People heard for centuries that there is only one God. Therefore it is established story. You don’t want to dismiss it because people have been practising this belief system for many centuries. Adam, Abraham, Moses and Mohammad talked about one God; all the prophets and all the messengers spoke about one God. So this monotheism has been established for many centuries. Whoever spoke against it was declared a disbeliever.
In order to understand anything relating to God or divine – either this God or those individuals who came to this world in the guise of prophets and messengers – what you need is enlightenment of the heart.
No matter how clever you are or how sharp your brain is, you can never understand God with your intelligence. You need intuitional inspiration. Your heart will receive intuition when it is enlightened; you don’t need anybody to tell you.
When your heart is enlightened, your heart will tell you and that will be intuition.
We here proudly present the secrets of the Unseen World and we propagate and advocate supremacy of love above all religions. There is nothing wrong with Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and other religions but the problem is, [no matter which of these religions you believe in] you will start off as a human being and you will end up the same.
But with these set of beliefs you start off as a human being and you will end up as divine. The difference is so clear and bright!
So Jesus spoke and he spoke the truth.
I can understand how Jesus felt when he spoke about Abraham and Moses. He was anticipating a joyful reaction from human beings.
[He expected them to say], ‘That is what we want! Finally, our prayers are heard.’
But when they became [upset] and started to retaliate, he was dismayed. He utterly felt let down. He was sombre and his heart was full of sorrow.
When I tell people the truth and say to them, ‘Forget about these saints such as the Sultan ul Fuqra; come become a humble dog of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi,’ people get [very upset] and say, ‘What are you saying?!’
You need to understand: the core of the message will reveal what you have deprived yourself of for centuries. There is a big difference between reality and originality. God is reality but these secrets are originality.
These secrets came from the origin. You did not come from the origin; you came from the reality. These secrets are from the principal origin; the point from where everything started.
And why don’t you understand it? Simple: because you are not enlightened.
For example, if someone is [already] a chef and there is a programme on the television about cooking, he will [easily] understand it. [They would be telling you] how many tomatoes or chillies to put in a dish, when to put it, how to put it, what the temperature should be and for how long you should keep a dish at that temperature. You have to be in the kitchen in order to be a chef. If you are sitting outside the kitchen hoping to be a chef, you [won’t be successful].
Similarly, in order to understand divinity, you need to prepare the dish of your heart. It has to be enlightened with the divine light.
So the only reason why people don’t understand these things today is that they are not enlightened. Tell them how to be enlightened, initiate their hearts. When their hearts are initiated and enlightened, their hearts will then push them to ask, ‘What is the secret behind the Unseen World?’
Function-wise only, the heart is at peace when it is enlightened. However, when the heart is enlightened, nature-wise it is eternally restive and inquisitive.
So when the heart is enlightened, the heart is at peace but at the same time it is restive and inquisitive. It is always wondering, ‘What’s that? What’s this? Why did God send Jesus before Prophet Mohammad, why not after him?’ The heart asks you questions like, ‘God said, “I love human beings more than 70 mothers combined can love a man” – but I don’t see it?’ Or, ‘Where is God? Why can’t I see him? I want to see him!’
Then, if the heart is enlightened and connected, the Lord will speak to your heart. When the Lord directly answers your question to your heart, that will be intuition.
The words that come from God are truly intuitional.
The Divine Society
You shouldn’t be troubled by this concept of the Unseen World and the fact that there are many other God-like individuals.
If every woman has one husband, but does it mean there should no other man around? [It is not as if] she is afraid that if they’re around, she would want to sleep with every other man! Or if somebody has a wife, it doesn’t mean that there cannot be any other woman in the world. If there is another woman besides your wife, it is not like you have to sleep with her!
(I give you examples that you can swiftly and rapidly understand).
If there is a God and he is your creator, you shouldn’t be bothered if somebody says, ‘There are more God-like creatures.’ It has nothing to do with you and your relationship with God.
Why are people intimidated by the thought of the possibility of having many more individuals like God? There may be one million God-like creatures. So what? It has nothing to do with your relationship with your God. You don’t have to detest it or reject it.

'Every human being, regardless of his origin, is part of God's light for God created all humanity with His light.' - Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love)
Sunday 19 July 2015
The following is an excerpt from His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech. His Holiness is the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz.
A common man is under the influence of the Self (Ego) and Khannas (the Evil Whisperer); the evil traits reflect in the personality of a common man.
Mortification of the Self is not easy therefore it is not very common.
You have an evil germ turned into a Jinn, which is the Subtlety of the Self in your body. Then you have the Khannas, which in Esoteric Realm looks like an elephant. In addition to the Khannas in your chest, you have another four birds: a crow, a pigeon, a cockerel and a peacock. The cockerel is responsible for instilling lust in the heart; the peacock, jealousy; the pigeon, false pride; the crow, greed. You have all these evil traits in your person. You’re impure. (For a more in-depth analysis of these esoteric birds and their effects on a person, read The Religion of God (Divine Love) by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi).
But when your heart is awakened and God’s name has been implanted and the divine energy starts getting generated inside the chambers of your heart, the process of enlightenment begins.
Enlightenment of the heart doesn’t mean you’re completely enlightened. The heart takes three years before it is fully awakened.
Spirituality is the purest form of practical knowledge and there are grades according to the souls.
[Since there are seven souls] there are seven grades.
The most important point in spirituality is the enlightenment of the heart because the heart is the gateway to reach all other esoteric faculties in the human body.
No worship is acceptable in the court of God until your heart is enlightened. Even for the study of divine text such as the Quran, you need a pure Self. Even to obtain guidance from the Quran you have to become pure first - according to the Quran itself.
Is there anything in any religion which you can do that God will accept without you having enlightenment of the heart or purification of Self? No.
Society has become corrupted because people are corrupted.
People did not make efforts to become corrupted. When they were born, they were born with an evil Jinn. Now the point is, when you adopt a religion you need to understand the purpose of the religion. Most religious people who practice any religion today are deprived of the esoteric knowledge.
Unfortunately all the religious scholars also are unaware of the esoteric knowledge or they deny it because they don’t have it.
They deny its existence because if they talk about spiritual knowledge, then people will ask them, ‘Teach us spiritual knowledge.’ Their egos do not allow them to say, ‘We are sorry; we do not have spiritual knowledge,’ because if they say it they will be humiliated in front of thousands of people who pray behind them.
I claim the spiritual knowledge that we dispense to people today is in its purest form.
You can pick up any Sufi book from any Sufi order but no Sufi order and no saint has ever touched upon the purity and originality of the esoteric knowledge to the standard that we dispense to you today. There is so much clarity in spiritual knowledge today which was never ever seen before.
Spiritual knowledge was dispensed to people [in the past, but the understanding] of spiritual knowledge was kept in dark to the conscious of mind. The mind has always been subconscious about the spiritual knowledge therefore no Saint was able to give [such] clear-cut guidance.

'The willingness to do good is directly proportional to the spiritual atmosphere.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar in his speech, The Ratio of Negativity in the Spiritual Atmosphere
The following is an excerpt from His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech.
The ratio of negativity in the spiritual atmosphere differs from time to time. The ratio of negativity was different at the time of Abraham from the time of Adam. And it differed in the era of Moses from the era of Abraham.
Let’s have a look at how this works out and what is meant by the ratio of negativity in the spiritual atmosphere.
According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘There are two angels appointed on every human being. One of the angels is appointed to keep a record of everything good a man does and the other keeps the record of everything bad a man does.’
So these two angels keep a record of your good and bad deeds. When you commit a sin, they write it in your book and it will be presented to God on the Day of Judgement. But at the same time, when you commit a sin, they write it in that book and they place a black spot on your heart as well. Now why is the record being kept in two different places in two different forms? Because when you reach the age of 40, your book [of deeds] is sent to God.
Whether you follow a religion or you don’t, whether you are good or bad, at the age of 40 your book is taken to God. According to God’s understanding, ‘Now he is 40. He must have done something good and he deserves to be rewarded.’ This is the time when God thinks you should be given rewards for your efforts that you may have made to seek God’s love. The efforts that you may have made to bring spirituality and spiritual awareness in your life [will be rewarded].
Maturity in men comes at the age of 40. You cannot be the President of the USA if you are not 40 years of age. All Prophets declared Prophet-hood after 40 because that is when they are sober.
Carbon monoxide causes pollution. You may have heard people saying that carbon emission should be reduced - because the atmosphere is really polluted. There are so many car factories, and industries, so gases [are produced which] affect the air quality. Air quality directly affects our health. When we go towards hilly areas and mountains, the air quality is better.
Air quality is determined by the amount of oxygen in it.
Because of the emission of carbon monoxide in cities, the air quality is not good; you will notice that you are standing outside and are still uneasy sometimes. We need to understand there is pollution in the air and because of the pollution the air quality is affected.
Why is there pollution in the air? If there are 25 individuals sitting together and everybody starts to pass gas, the pollution will be unbearable; the air quality will be greatly affected. There is so much human waste in this world and the deposit of this adds to the poor quality of air. Then, we have carbon monoxide. When we pass gas, we pass carbon monoxide.
When you pass gas, the air quality is polluted but when you commit a sin, the spiritual atmosphere is polluted.
Why? There is a bad smell when you pass gas and when you sin there is negative energy that you produce because of that sin. If two individuals pass gas in the room and then 200 individuals pass gas in the room, which is better?
At the time of Adam there were only a few people. They committed sins so the spiritual atmosphere was more bearable. But the progeny of Adam spread about the world and by the time Abraham came, the spiritual atmosphere was more polluted than it was at the time of Adam. Because there were less people in Adam’s era, fewer sins [were committed] and there was less spiritual pollution as compared to the era of Abraham, when there were many more people, [who committed] more sins and polluted the spiritual atmosphere more.
When we pass gas, we open the window; fresh air comes in and we feel better.
A Prophetic Tradition says, ‘When you do something bad, quickly do something good as well.’ Why? To keep the balance.
Now there are so many people who committed sins. But were there the same amount of people doing good things at the same time?
There are more bad people than there are good.
1 million people are saying, ‘God, I am here!’ And 30 million are saying, ‘I want to sleep with someone tonight.’ So what about the spiritual atmosphere? It is completely imbalanced.
The willingness to do good is directly proportional to the spiritual atmosphere.
If the spiritual atmosphere is full of positive energy, than even bad people want to do good.
When the ratio of negativity was significantly low at the time of Adam, it was easy for them to do good deeds; comparatively, the same good act that people of Adam did became harder for the people of Abraham. Why? The spiritual atmosphere provided more resistance against them because of the [higher ratio of] negativity. Negativity at the time of Adam was lowest.
So the spiritual atmosphere is getting worse every day.
Presence of Negative Creatures
The second factor affecting the spiritual atmosphere is the presence of evil creatures in this world: the presence of Jinn. At the time of Adam, the numbers of Jinn were fewer. Not so many people lived at the time of Adam. Similarly, with time, Jinn multiplied in big numbers. At the time of Adam there was less resistance in the spiritual atmosphere and less negativity, so people who lived in that era had to struggle less than those who came in the time of Abraham. In the time of Moses, they had to suffer more. By the time Jesus came the spiritual atmosphere was made worse than at the time of Moses. Prophet Mohammad came 600 years after Jesus and the spiritual atmosphere was worse still. Now, after 1434 years, you can understand how bad the spiritual atmosphere would have become, given the number of Jinn and the number of sins.
Maybe the people of Adam and Abraham did not know of the sins we do today. We do the same sins but in a different style. The nature of sins is not different at all but there is a big difference. At the time of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad, people would commit sins and they would understand that they are sinners.
But today we do sins and we think we deserve to do sins. We do sins under the banner of spirituality and under religion.
Today, we are sinners but we don’t regard ourselves as sinners; we think we are saints and we are holy. At the time of Prophet Mohammad, people had different understanding of being a holy person.
You are holy when you abstain from everything else and negate yourself.
If you are committing a sin and you understand that it is a sin, you are a blessed one. But if you are committing a sin and according to your understanding, you are not committing a sin and you are doing it because you are holy, then your mind is messed up. Because when you have become holy you do holy things. Everybody in all religions is doing this: Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims - everybody. Like, there was a man in New Mexico who claimed he was Jesus; there were 175 women with him and according to his understanding, when he would have sex with those women they would see God. One man in Israel was arrested because he did the same.
Now, propagation of the Awaited One is harder than propagation of Islam. 1434 years ago, spreading the word of God was not as difficult as it is today. Today, people swear at the Lord wherever you go. This is because of the ratio of negativity in the spiritual atmosphere. What you did 6000 years ago cannot be compared with the same act you do today.
The spiritual atmosphere is polluted with the amount of sins committed in an era and the number of Jinn present in the era. The ratio of negativity determines the steadfastness of individuals on the Truth and excellence of faith.
The followers of Prophet Adam had to cope with relatively less resistance in purifying their Selves [ego] and their hearts than those in the era of Prophet Abraham, who had to struggle a lot more in performance of the same good deed and mortification of the Self.
The ratio of negativity presently is over 100%.
The more the spiritual atmosphere is polluted, the less you feel inclined to do good deeds or to mortify your Self. It is due to the highest ratio of negativity today that people don’t want to purify their Selves.
The desire of God's love is overshadowed by the desire of material gains thanks to the fullest ratio of negativity.
You enjoy more when you do bad than when you do good and it is because bad deeds are well supported by the negativity in the atmosphere. Most people are married yet they enjoy sex with those not married to them; it is because of the negativity in the atmosphere.
A holy man has God's presence in him and he is like a powerhouse of light and positivity; people feel inclined to do good when they are around him.
A holy man recycles the atmosphere and renders good spiritual oxygen to the suffocating hearts.
No act of worship can provide you with the amount of light and positivity as much as a holy man does. No wonder Rumi said, ‘A moment spent in company of a holy man is far greater and better than worship of a thousand years.’
The spiritual atmosphere continues to deteriorate. Human beings now want money, women and luxury only.
The ratio of negativity has always gone up with the passage of time. It is directly proportional to the nature of the amount of sins which people commit; and at the same time it is also directly proportional to the number of Jinn who dwell in this phenomenal world.
These are Spiritual Sciences. What I am speaking about is not any knowledge that you can find in any celestial book. You will not find this knowledge in books of Prophetic Traditions and you will not find this knowledge in books of Saints. This knowledge comes from His Divine Eminece Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘The world will be covered with darkness in the era that the Awaited One will appear in this world. There will be a few lamps lit up in this world and those few lamps will be at a considerable distance.’
People who interpret the Holy Scripture think that this darkness is referred to physical, phenomenal darkness of this world and that these lamps are referred to physical lamps. This is wrong. Physical lamps and physical darkness has nothing to do with the advent of the Awaited One; there has been such darkness in this world before the Awaited One’s arrival and there can be darkness after the Awaited One has arrived. It doesn’t help us understand the Personality of the Awaited One. If we interpret this Prophetic Tradition under the guidance of His Divine Eminence and dig out the esoteric meaning of it, darkness is referred to darkness of the heart and lamps are referred to enlightened hearts. There will be a few enlightened hearts.
The more enlightened hearts are there in the world the better the spiritual atmosphere is and the less enlightened hearts are there in the world the worse the spiritual atmosphere becomes.
How does the spiritual pollution affect our spiritual journey, our faith and our struggle to purify our hearts and mortify our Selves (Ego)?
We have seven subtleties in our skeleton. Six of them are dormant but the seventh, the Self (Ego) is very much alive and its origin is the devil. When the body of Adam was created, the devil spat at his navel point; there was a germ in his saliva which turned into the Self. So, the Self is a germ that has come from the devil.
This diet can be obtained from any food you consume. Negative energy has heating effects. When you inhale oxygen, a considerable amount of negativity enters your body and it strengthens your Self.
The diet of the Self is negative energy.
Every time you breathe you're giving diet to your Self.
All vegetables and fruits need some light before they are worthy of consumption. If there is no sunlight available there is no fragrance in flowers. If there is no sunlight, there is no taste in any fruit. Sunlight is important and sunlight has heating effects; so negative energy is rendered. All kinds of meat, including fish have negative energy in them.
You cannot live without food. When you eat it, it is not only strengthening your body but it is strengthening your Self; it’s becoming stronger every day.
One thing is very important: when there is too much negative energy in this world and our Self is absorbing so much negative energy, we want to do bad things.
If our Self is strong, our Self makes us do bad things.
His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi once said, ‘The knowledge of spirituality is not suitable for common people. Initially it was aimed at those who were very clever by mind.’
His Divine Eminence says, ‘If you want to keep your heart alive and happy with God, and God happy with your heart, then keep your Self unhappy.’
You cannot keep both the Self and heart happy at the same time. You could like it or dislike it, but this is what spirituality is all about.
The ratio of negativity and positivity in the spiritual atmosphere is a very sensitive issue. How sensitive? Your progress [in spirituality] is directly dependent upon the effects of this ratio.
Combating the Spiritual Pollution
In order to cut down on atmospheric pollution, you plant trees. The more trees you have in the area, the lesser pollution. A tree gives you an external aid to cut down on the pollution. In the daytime, trees release oxygen which helps overcome the bad elements in the air. When it goes in the air, it adds to the amount of the oxygen already present in the air and the pollution decreases. If there are no trees, the air quality will be so bad that you will not be able to breathe.
In a similar fashion, if you want beat the spiritual pollution you need to have Saints of God.
Why? The trees release oxygen and the Saints are connected to God; God looks at them and God sends upon them 360 Theophanies of God every day. Remember: one Merciful Glance of God burns away seven great sins.
Right now, spiritually, this world is like a toilet. Dirt is falling from the sky. You go out and you become dirty. If dirt starts to fall from the sky and it doesn’t stop, you will become accustomed to it.
For the first few days, you will feel stinky and terrible, but you have no cure, no remedy and no solution so you will convince yourself to become accustomed.
But then, somebody will come to you and say, ‘Come. There is a very safe place for you. Come to the Awaited One. In the time you spend in the Awaited One’s company, you are away from the falling dirt.’
You become pure again but the trouble is, you go and come back again and become pure. But now there is one difference between you and others. They do not know about the cleanliness, they will develop an urge to come back here. What will happen to you? When there is enough purity in your heart, you will be given the armour of purity. Your heart will be connected to the Awaited One Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s heart. When you go out with the umbrella of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s Merciful Sight, you are safe. It is like dirt is falling on people but you are holding an umbrella, so you are protected.
Without the Merciful Glance it is difficult to remain a good person and remain a pure heart.
A team from Messiah Foundation and Kalki Avatar Foundation International has been actively propagating the message of divine love to people of all backgrounds in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Over the past months, they have delivered our message to Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and non-religious seekers alike. Tourists from all over the world, from the USA to Iran who visited temples in Malaysia have also shown great interest in our mission.
Many people have come back to our team to express their gratitude and share their stories. Our designated spiritual ministers have granted Invocation of the Heart to countless people in Malaysia.
One woman, after receiving the Invocation of ‘Ra Raam’ at the Sai Baba Temple in Jamic, Kuala Lumpur, came back to tell our team how she felt inner peace and deep attachment to Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.
Our team has been welcomed with open arms! They have been invited to use various temples as platforms to spread our message; the support for our team has been overwhelming. We are so excited to continue our work in Malaysia and see lives transform with the help of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi!
On the 4th of July, 2015, a delegation from Kalki Avatar Foundation India took a visit to Baba Mohan Ram Temple in Rajasthan, India where more than 2000 devotees were given the merciful message of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi. Our team told thousands of people about the divine signs on the Moon, Sun and Maha Shivling (Holy Black Stone). Many recipients showed great interest in our message and happily took the invocation of 'Ra Raam' from our designated spiritual ministers.

'What of the accountability when the intellect is lost in God's love?' - Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love)
'One can't have two beloveds in one heart. And God did not create two hearts in one body.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

We have been talking about God's system and how perfectly or imperfectly he works in mysterious ways. When God takes care of one person and rejects the other; when God makes one person perfect and leaves the other imperfect; when God guides one and leaves the other misguided; when God loves one and doesn’t allow others to love him or he them; then I begin to wonder: what is God’s standard of justice?
To an ordinary standard of justice, what I gather is that everybody has certain rights. If somebody tries to deprive a person of their rights, then a system called justice will probe into the matter and according to the law, will evenly respect everybody, stop the oppression and stop the oppressor from depriving any person of their rights. But in order to do justice, there should be a society where people have rights and they know their rights. Everybody should know that everybody has rights.
If one person has rights and others don’t, the justice system becomes invalid.
If God was just, then all human beings should have been enjoying equal right on everything. Regarding trouble, calamity, God’s bounty, God’s compassion and God’s love, there should be equality for everybody. But we see that there are many individuals who seek God and want to love God; but God has granted everybody uneven amounts of bounty, amounts of love and amounts of his nearness. You cannot equate two individuals in terms of having the same amount of love of God and having the same nature and type of trust in God. One has to differ from the other. Is this justice?
People came to see Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and they wanted to be blessed. Their hearts were initiated. One person was able to feel that his heart could remember God about 30 000-40 000 times a day. Whenever that number was done, his heart would stop remembering God. Another individual was blessed with more intensity of Dhikr (Invocation of God's Name): 60 000-70 000. We tried to find out the reason why this person was restricted to 30 000-40 000 times’ [remembrance] only. Did he do anything wrong? Did his heart get too tired to remember God any further? Then we found out that it is not his mistake. It is God who does not want that person to invoke his name more than he has allowed him to do.
The quality of your faith does not depend on your exertion and hard work; it totally depends on God’s will and accord.
Whether or not you will be able to see God will depend on what God wants for you, not what you want. Whether or not you will find a spiritual guide will not depend on how intensely you search for a spiritual guide; it will depend on God’s mood. Sometimes, even those who he promised to grant faith failed to find a spiritual guide. Is this justice?
Am I disrespecting God by saying what I am saying? Instead of exposing some of the concealed attributes of God, should I stay quiet and only talk about Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi? If I do not tell people that comparison between Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s bounty and God’s bounty - which is rarely seen - how will people come to understand of eminence of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi?
When we see an advert in a newspaper by any grocery store, they give you a comparison list. For example, if you want to find the cheapest place to buy a tomato, you’ll compare the prices at Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morissons and so on.
If you do not compare you will never come to know who is greater and more loving.
I am not comparing Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi with God because it is impossible. I am comparing His works, attributes and claims. He claims to love human beings as much as 70 mothers can love their child.
God alone will love you with the intensity of love which can be distributed to 70 mothers on Earth. And still, he will send you to hellfire! He loves you so much but even his love cannot stop you from getting thrown into hellfire.
‘Oh, God doesn’t love sinners? Hellfire is for bad people. Hellfire is not for good people. Oh now I understand! I thought God loved everybody. But he doesn’t. He only loves good guys!’
But honestly, mothers do not discriminate between good and bad.
People often hear about these things in lectures where the scholar tells you holy stories. Do you know why people have never complained about these things? Because they never related them to themselves; they thought that these are stories and they themselves would never see God.
Religions have become mythological stories.
They openly say that God can send anybody to paradise and anybody to hellfire no matter how hard you worshipped him or how hard to tried to please him. All your worship and prayers - if he doesn’t like you - will be thrown in your face by God on the Day of Judgement.
Someone brought me a gift today. If I throw the gift back in his face because I don’t like it and he gets hurt, this is humiliation.
So in other words, if God doesn’t like somebody’s worship and he will throw it in their face on the Day of Judgement, in simple words, he will humiliate them. Why? Because their worship was imperfect and impure. But the thing is: why was it impure and imperfect?
The Prophet Mohammad said, ‘If you heart is not present in worship, it is not counted as worship.’
But then again, whose fault is this? Did God expose the knowledge of spirituality to everybody, to all those who practised a religion? God concealed the knowledge of spirituality. When God has concealed the knowledge of spirituality, now without it, no worship is fruitful, pure, or perfect.
The only way of getting your worship purified is the way of spirituality.
The knowledge with the help of which people would have been able to purify their worship has been concealed. God did not give them the knowledge to purify their worship, but on the Day of Judgement, he will throw it in their face. To the level of intellect that God has bestowed on us, we gather that this is unfair.
All your life you spend half your day in the mosque. After 40 years, when you die, you think about paradise - and all you get is your worship thrown back at your face! Won’t people ask him, ‘Why? Why are you throwing the worship that I offered to you at my face?
God would reply, ‘It was impure.’
A person could ask, ‘What is it that I did not do to make my worship perfect and pure?’
‘Oh my son, it was the knowledge of spirituality.’
‘Oh, really? Is it mentioned in the Quran?’
‘Why? We only believed the Quran is your word and encompasses all knowledge. Why was it not mentioned in the Quran, Bible or Torah? Did you tell us any other book to turn to? Did you tell us to do any extra hard work to find spiritual knowledge? No!’
Do you think this is justice?

The following is a transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar’ s speech. His Holiness is the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz.
We have been talking about God and how God created human beings. We’ve been discussing how good or bad human beings are: why some human beings are good while others are not. Is a good man so because he is good on his own without any pleasant interference from God? If somebody is bad, then is he bad because he is bad or because God wanted him to be so? Can a bad person change from being bad to being good? And can a good person change from being good to being bad? Why do some people look for God and end up being a devil? And why do some people not even look for God and end up being holy? Things like that are very confusing and pose a lot of valid questions to the divine thought process.
How did the idea of creating such a multidimensional human race come about and what was the target to achieve by creating such a diverse global community? Some people do not even want to hear the name ‘God’. Some others appear to have gone into depths of the religion and have become so involved in it that they have become radicalised fanatics; they have adopted extremism.
The most important question is: have all these different people become what they are today thanks to their own understanding and decisions, or did they not have any control in becoming bad or good?
What is it that makes a man bad or good? Does a man become good because of his own efforts and right decisions? Or does a man become bad because of his own personal liberties and carnal desires?
People tend to believe in religions blindfoldedly. People do not want to go into the depths. If they are not allowed to do certain things which have been declared prohibited on them, [they do not know] why it is prohibited. If they are allowed to do some things that they do not find interesting, then [they don’t know why they] should do it. They have to do it because it is a divine decree. In order to fulfil the divine decree, they have to keep their mouth and heart shut. Even if they don’t want to do it, they just keep doing it; they don’t know why they are doing it.
Being human beings, we understand that everything comes from its roots and nobody is self-sustainable. We hear that God is there since eternity and for eternity. It is beyond the capacity and intuitive calibre of my brain to digest such a lengthy, unreasonable and irrational thought: that God has been there since eternity and he will be there for eternity. Human intellect is not competent enough to gather exactly what it means.
Contradictions in Divine Commandments
We’ve been discussing different types of divine commandments: commandments which were given to people of Abraham, to the people of Moses, to people of Jesus, and then now Muslims. Being a Muslim, one has to believe in all four divinely ordained scriptures. If you do not believe the fact that all four Holy Scriptures given to different religions were ordained and revealed by God, then you do not qualify to become a Muslim.
Fundamentally, a Muslim is required to believe in all the Prophets and Messengers sent by God and all the Holy Scriptures revealed to different Prophets and Messengers sent by God. You have to believe in the Torah, Bible, Psalms of David and the Quran.
Very unfortunately, the tragedy is that it is not possible. As long as your ears are open, your mind is working fine and your eyes are not shut, it is not possible to believe in the Bible at the same time as the Quran.
What the Bible says is totally opposite to what the Quran says. The irony is that God wants you to believe in both. You see, the problem is that Muslims just say that they believe in the Bible, Psalms of David and Torah. But if they happen to read what the Bible says, then they will find themselves in hot waters.
The Bible says, ‘Jesus is Son of God.’
The Quran says, ‘God is free from such a thing. God does not have a son or daughter.’
How do we believe in both? The Quran is rejecting what the Bible is professing.
I personally do not seem to fit in this divinely ordained scriptural philosophy because I don’t know how to believe in two opposite things. This contradiction is not just a minor or minute contradiction. How do we believe in the Bible and Quran at the same time when one is rejecting the other?
According to the Bible, God has a son, the Only Begotten Son. So it means there were sons who were not begotten – but they are still sons. A different method was used; they are not begotten. They have been conceived differently. They didn’t have to spend nine months in the womb.
When one army of Muslims was led by Ali (the Companion of the Prophet Mohammad) and another was led by Aisha, the wife of the Prophet (assisted by Amir Mauwiya, the Butcherer), there was this war between two different armies of the Muslims; people of both sides died. Today, Muslim scholars say, ‘Both were right. Respect them all.’ If Person X and Person Y are fighting and we say, ‘None of them is wrong. X is right and Y is right; they’re both holy. Somebody else is fighting,’ then this is terrible.
How do we believe in all four books? Every book tells you a different story.
One reason Muslims can come up with is that the Bible has been changed and altered. I can say that the Bible has not changed in the last 1436 years, because the Quran mentions that people who believed in Jesus also believed that Jesus was Son of God; this is why it was in the Quran. Whatever changed or alteration came about did come about at least 1500 years ago, not now.
It is not just Jesus. The Jews believe in Prophet Ezra and they believed he was the Son of God.
Since the Jews believed that they are already the Nation of God’s Son, any Prophet in that era – if that Prophet was not a Son of God – would have been ruthlessly turned down by those people. Hence, as a result of this notion, God had to send Jesus in that era.
And Jesus said, ‘I am Son of God.’
On one occasion, Lord Ra Riaz was speaking in Kotri, Pakistan and someone was videotaping it.
In the middle of the speech, when Lord Ra Riaz paused for water, somebody asked, ‘What’s the story behind Jesus being the Son of God?’
What Lord Ra Riaz said was, ‘Maybe he said it by a slip of the tongue.’
Now look at the words. Lord Ra Riaz’s words clearly indicate that Jesus is Son of God; however, he couldn’t control his mouth. Lord Ra Riaz did not refute the fact that Jesus is Son of God.
The fact that Jesus is the Son of God has been verified by the Awaited One. The Bible states so and this fact is verified, endorsed and promulgated. We have come to this conclusion that – unless you are a mad person who doesn’t want to read the Quran or Bible and rather declares that whatever God says is right [without knowing what is being said] – it is not intellectually possible for any human being to believe in [all] the books equally in the wake of the Quran rejecting the Bible.
