WHICH Islam Must Be Condemned

Younus AlGohar responds to radical anti-Muslims on Twitter and explains the truth about Islam and how it has been distorted today.

Main points:

-  Every religion has a time limit on it, an expiry date. When a certain religion expires, what is happening today under the banner of Islam is exactly what happens. Some people just want to denounce Islam and some other people keep on saying terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. Both are wrong: Islam when it was founded by Prophet Mohammad was not the same Islam as we see today.

-  If a religion is not making you holy, that religion is not holy anymore. Today the problems we have in the world are because of these religions after they expired. When religions were founded and the spiritual systems were intact, they were helping people out and responsible for reviving human values in human beings. However, now these religions are bringing the worst out of everybody.

- There was a time when Judaism was the truth. Then there was a time when Christianity was the truth. There was a time when Islam was the truth. When truth separated itself from the religions, these religions became monstrous. We defend the original Islam which did not mean any harm to anybody.  We condemn the Islam practised by Wahhabis and ISIS.

- To collect the Quran in the form of a book was never in God’s or Prophet Mohammad’s plan. Therefore many verses in the Quran we have today have already been abrogated by God. The original Quran was revealed onto the heart of Prophet Mohammad; therefore only Prophet Mohammad, the recipient of the Quran, would be notified of any changes. It would not be made public knowledge necessarily. There are two Quran: the Esoteric Quran and the Exoteric Quran. Esoteric Quran has everything to do with God and Prophet Mohammad. This Exoteric Quran has nothing to do with either Prophet Mohammad or God.

- The apocalyptic forecast of Prophet Mohammad regarding the end times has been heavily modified by Wahhabis. The concept of Imam Mehdi has been modified and they have begotten a new theory of hatred. They have given an unreal, false story of the worldwide caliph who will supposedly rule the entire world and turn everybody into Muslims.

A Viewer's Response to Younus AlGohar's Lecture on Sufism vs Wahhabism

In response to Younus AlGohar's comparison of Sufi Islam vs Wahhabi Islam, YouTube user Larryprint had this to say:

'We need more guys like you in Germany. Salafist try to indoctrinate so many young Muslims with their YouTube videos and "read projects" here. They [proclaim] their Wahabism/Salafism as the only true [Islamic] religion.

'I think the spiritual Sufi Islam is compatible with Christianity, human rights, philosophy and democracy but the radical Sunni Islam and the Salafism and Wahabism seem to be much more a political weapon.'

Dour-e-Mehdi Aur Ulema Ki Dhoka Dahi

Younus AlGohar categorically refutes the attempts by religious scholars to distort the public’s understanding of the end times and the era of Imam Mehdi. He explains exactly how scholars have tried to confuse Muslims about Imam Mehdi.

Main points:

- We congratulate General Raheel Sharif of the Pakistan Army for taking the initiative to ban the Wahhabi preacher, Tariq Jameel, from speaking at any of the army institutions. We also appreciate the actions taken by the British judiciary against radical Islamist Anjem Choudary, who has been convicted of promoting ISIS in Britain. These are steps in the right direction in the fight against terrorism.

- All the signs mentioned in the Quran and Prophetic Traditions regarding the era of Imam Mehdi can be seen today. People think that because there are so many Muslims in the world today, that Islam still lives and it is not yet the time for Imam Mehdi; however they are blind to the truth that Islam has been subject to great mischief. Today, people cannot reach God through the religion and are instead turning on their fellow human beings. On the forefront of this group that denies the truth about Imam Mehdi’s era is Tahir ul Qadri, who we have challenged multiple times on this subject.

- Tahir ul Qadri’s arguments attempting the refute the fact that we are living in Imam Mehdi’s era are severely flawed. For example, he says, ‘Imam Mehdi will come when there will be no one left who invokes God’s name.’ However when Prophet Mohammad came, was God not being remembered then? God’s name was still being invoked upon, even then Prophet Mohammad was sent with a new religion. Therefore the criteria set by Tahir ul Qadri has no basis in reality. Had Tahir ul Qadri had any knowledge of spirituality, he would not have said such a statement.

- Prophet Mohammad said in the end times, there would be beautiful mosques filled with worshippers but the mosques would be void of guidance. He further said that people would recite the Quran, but the Quran would not go beyond their throats. He said the scholars of the time would be the worst creature under the sky. He further declared that mischief would emerge from within them, and to them mischief would return.

- Muslims today should ask that if Islam really exists today, why aren’t their characters improving from practice of Islam? Instead of improving, they’re becoming more and more corrupt. There is no doubt left in any rational person’s mind that we now need Imam Mehdi.

Rouhon Ka Deen | Deen-e-Ilahi

What is Deen-e-Ilahi (The Religion of God) mentioned in the Quran as the future religion, and what sets it apart from other religions?

Main points:

- Deen-e-Ilahi (The Religion of God) is the Religion God sent and it is also known as Deen-e-Hanif and Deen-e-Qayam. One who rejects it will become an infidel. The responsibility of Deen-e-Ilahi was given to Imam Mehdi by God. No one but Imam Mehdi can do it. You can teach people to worship, but you can’t give them God’s love.

- Deen-e-Ilahi is the religion for the souls. Every follower of Deen-e-Ilahi, in order to enter Deen-e-Ilahi, must have seen God. Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi explains that it is impossible that you have entered Deen-e-Ilahi and you don’t reach the culmination. If God accepts you, then later on, he won’t reject you.

- In order to see God, there is a subtlety in the head known as Latifa-e-Ana, which has to do with the realm where God himself is. Man can’t see God, but God has put the Latifa-e-Ana inside man which has the potential to see God. One has to enlighten and strengthen the Ana through spirituality in order to be able to see God.

- There are stages one has to go through when they embark on the journey to see God. In Zakooriyat, one engages the subtleties in invocation of God’s name (Dhikr). Once Dhikr no longer helps the seeker progress on the spiritual path, they continue on to Kashiyat in which the responsibility of whatever worship they were doing with their body is now given to the sub-spirits. In Kashiyat, every subtlety has the ability to make a spiritual journey back to their respective realms.

- After the stage of Kashiyat, seekers can start to ready themselves to see God. All the other subtleties would have gone to their realms except the Ana. To prepare the Ana to see God, one has to keep a fast for 40 days straight. If after 40 days they don’t die, their spiritual guide will take them to see God. The Ana is taken to Moqam-e-Mehmood, which is like a viewing gallery; this is where people can see God. Moqam-e-Mehmood is named as such because this is where Prophet Mohammad’s Latifa-e-Ana is stationed; the name of Prophet Mohammad’s Ana is Mehmood.

- Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi said in Gujar Khan, ‘I don’t know what happened to Prophet Mohammad one day; he gave to us the knowledge that was only for him.’ The knowledge being referred to is the knowledge of Ana, which enables man to see God. The Latifa-e-Ana of Prophet Mohammad, Mehmood, now resides in Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi’s body.

Turbulent History of Islam

We are living in a corrupt world, where almost everybody is corrupt. If you're a common man, then your corruption is on a very low level; if you're a politician, your corruption level is higher than a common man. If you are a religious celebrity, then your corruption level is higher than the politician. So this is a strange world where everybody is busy looting and plundering, making any excuse to suppress and defile others. Some people use politics and some others use religions to do this. When we speak about the entire world, we actually mean the majority of people are corrupt. Of course there are exceptions, but these exceptions are so negligible in number that their presence or absence will make no difference.

Islam is a religion which was born some 15 centuries ago and Islam has a very turbulent history. If you read history of Islam, you'll come to know that from the very beginning, Islam has been made subject to a lot of killing. There have been a lot of people who posed to be pure Muslim leaders, but they were not after purity; they were after power, money and lust.
Most Muslims do not get tired of defending Islam. They say that it has nothing to do with any mischief or trouble.
Most of the time, I also defend Islam; but when I do, I'm defending the esoteric aspect of the religion: the Sufi Islam. The political Islam has always been turbulent right from its beginning.
Out of four of the most popular and immediate successors of Prophet Muhammad, three of them were assassinated. The first one, Abu Bakr Siddiq, was the caliph for two years; he was already old, [so he died of natural causes]. Then Umar Bin Khattab, Usman-e-Ghani and then Hazrat Ali: all three of them were killed. Then we have a very sad event that took place in Karbala. All the men in Prophet Mohammad’s household, for except Imam Hussain ul-Abidin, were killed in Karbala.

There is something. I thought a lot about it and asked, 'What is wrong with Islam?' It is not just today that they're killing people. Those who know Islamic history will not be offended by what I'm saying, because they must know what Islam has been going through since its birth. Firstly, since Islam’s birth, it has been going through a lot of turmoil, misunderstandings and killing. Secondly, Islam has been through a phenomenal crisis of [not] observing respect for the elders in Islam or non-Muslim human beings. Respect is one aspect that Muslims have not observed as a whole. Sufis do observe respect, but most non-Sufi Muslims have this problem: they're very aggressive, violent and short-sighted.

I thought a lot about why Islam has been subjected to so much killing since its birth. I ask Muslims to accept and admit the truth; there is no harm in doing so. The irony is, those who killed the household of Prophet Mohammad were Muslims. Those who killed their second, third and fourth caliphs were Muslims.

There was a Companion of the Prophet by the name of Abu Huraira. ‘Huraira’ is an Arabic word for cats and ‘Abu’ means ‘Father,’ so ‘Father of the Cats’ was his nickname. He spent a lot time with Prophet Mohammad and used to share the knowledge he obtained in company of Prophet Mohammad with people. According to narrations from the Traditions of the Prophet, we find that he was reluctant to reveal all types of knowledge that he obtained from the Prophet. He clearly said, ‘I have told you just one type of knowledge that I obtained from the Prophet. If I told you the other type of knowledge I obtained from the Prophet, you would kill me.’ So beheading, killing, chopping hands and legs off was the normal pattern of that society; otherwise he would have said, ‘You would punish me,’ or ‘You would beat me.’ However, people in that society never used these words; they only said, ‘I’ll kill you.’

When somebody does anything wrong, you don’t get angry straight away. It builds up. They do one thing wrong and you don’t like it, so you tell them, ‘Don't do this again.’ When they do it again, you feel frustrated; then you tell them with some more authority, ‘I told you not to do it and you're still doing it. Don’t do it again!’ If that person doesn’t listen to you and he does it again for the third time, maybe then you will show anger.

The Muslims from the Arab world, where Islam was born, consider themselves to be the only real Muslims. They think Muslims who come from places like India, Pakistan or Bangladesh are ‘fake’ Muslims.
Aggression and extremism is in the nature of [Arabs].
From this part of the ‘real’ Islamic world, for the first time if you do something wrong, they show anger with so much intensity like they have been warning you not to do it for the last 150 years.

Another thing was that people in that part of the world did have but very little intelligence. The Quran said 49:4 said so.

People must understand that a Muslim from the Arab world behaves differently from a Muslim that comes from [Indian] subcontinent. Their behaviour and temperament is different. People from subcontinent will take everything easily; they're more into forgiving others rather than chopping their heads off. On contrary to this, the ‘real’ custodians of Islam they will not give you margin of error.

Now the question that I had in my mind is, ‘Why has Islam always been turbulent? It's a bloody history. What is wrong with Islam?’
Not much wrong is with Islam. More wrong is with the people for whom Islam was founded.
[Killing] was in their nature. They used to kill each other on tiny issues like, 'Why did your cow drink water from my stream?' If you were to look at them, they would say, 'Why are you staring at me?' They will think that they have been humiliated and insulted, therefore [you] have no right to live. This is extremism.

If you are a common person dealing with peaceful and calm people, you yourself will feel relaxed. However, if you’re dealing with aggressive and really outspoken - almost rude - people, you will feel invited to behave the same way that they are behaving with you. Perhaps when God was sending them the religion of Islam, God was aware of their temperament and God had to keep up his standard with them. If God didn't introduce severe punishments, they would take the Quran and Islam as a joke.
They would not believe in God’s power and authority if God was all merciful.
If I play cricket and you also play cricket, there will be an abstract, invisible bond because we share the same sport. Similarly, if God did not show anger, since they're such angry people, they would not take it from God.
God became a little aggressive in the Quran because he was dealing with aggressive people.
In one of the Traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, he said, ‘When you're dealing with arrogant people, deal with them with arrogance. If you don't, then don't blame others.’
Muslims who are from other parts of the world are not as aggressive as the ‘real’ Muslims are; they are not into fighting and killing. However people of the Arabian peninsula were historically warriors. The royal family of Saudi Arabia were pirates; they used to sell water.

In Pakistan, about 30-35 years ago, every time Eid would come, we would go to a tailor, he would measure our body and then he would stitch our suits. Now, we buy suits from Marks and Spencer's, Macy’s, etc. However, in those times, it had to be tailor-made.
In a similar way, a religion is always tailor-made. When God customises a religion, this customisation is in accordance with the temperament and attributes of the nation that the religion is about to be introduced to.
Therefore, the religion of Islam is not suitable for non-Arabs.
Now, a major crime is being committed against the Quran: contextualised verses of the Quran are being made universalised.
There are verses that have a context, without which you can't interpret them. If you are universalising such verses and applying them to everybody in this world, this is a crime against the Quran.

I have talked about it many times.

For example, if you ask your romantic partner to [take off their clothes] in the bedroom, then it is okay because you’re [in private]. If someone tells people your words and does not mention that it was said in the bedroom, it is a crime. Similarly, when the Quran said, ‘Go kill non-Muslims,’ this was said on the battlefield there and then, not for today. It was revealed for that moment in time. 

Tajdeed-e-Mehdi | Younus AlGohar Ka Ulema ko Challenge | Irtidad Be-Maini Ho Gaya!

Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi’s verdict: apostasy law has become insignificant. Younus AlGohar, representative of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi, explains how.

Main points:

- If the exoteric and esoteric aspects of the religion are not practised together, then for you to practise the religion is futile. The religion is meant to improve the characters of its practitioners. Regarding Namaz, Quran says that it performing Namaz is like subtly conversing with God. The other prominent feature of Namaz mentioned in the Quran is that it will stop you from committing bad deeds. Namaz is meant to act as a medicine and it will also connect you with God. It is impossible that Namaz will connect one to God and not improve his character at the same time.

- To adopt a Deen is to adopt a lifestyle. People who practise a religion today do not know why they follow the religion. People who were born in a Christian household became Christians; they never thought why they were Christians. The same is the case with Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. People do not know the purpose for which a religion must be followed.

- People talk about apostasy. Apostasy means that one leaves their religion. In this era, if a Muslim leaves Islam, should he be punished as a Muslim would have been punished 1400 years ago? Quran says that there is no compulsion in the religion. If someone wants to leave the religion, then he shouldn’t be forced to stay in the religion. The fact of the matter is, today if someone leaves a religion, they are doing so because they did not receive benevolence; they did not find God. People practising religion have not obtained anything today.

- Apostasy law is no longer important in this day and age. No one can be declared an apostate anymore. People would become apostates the religion could still connect people to God. If someone got connected to God through the religion and then decided to leave the religion, they were apostates. If they were to leave Islam for another religion, the other religions also were created by God. In the other religions, the purpose would be the same as Islam: to reach God. Therefore God would become upset with apostates seeking him through a new religion, because he had already accepted and blessed them while they were Muslims. Today, no religion can connect anyone to God anymore.

'Tampering with the word of God is a crime against God and his creation.' - Younus AlGohar

Wahhabiyat Ki Pazeerayi Mein Naqis Shayukh Aur Jahil Peeron Ki Muawinat

Younus AlGohar explains the factors that contributed to Wahhabism becoming the dominant school of thought in Pakistan and also in the wider Muslim community.

Main points:

- Wahhabis have control over the media. If Islam is shown in practice in any television series or film, the directors portray the Wahhabi school of thought mostly. There are rarely series in which people are seen visiting Sufi shrines. This has profoundly impacted society. Most people don’t know Islam on the basis of their own research. They simply know what they have heard.

- Besides the fact that Wahhabis are sponsored by the filthy rich Saudis, scholars from Ahle Sunnat wal Jama’at and the imposters who project themselves to be saints are also to blame for the widespread of Wahhabism. They way these people have portrayed Sufism is so despicable that seekers are pushed away from them straight into the hands of Wahhabis.

- For example, even Tahir ul Qadri did a lot of research and read many books on Sufism, but he doesn’t have spiritual knowledge. He doesn’t tell his followers how to fix the heart, what Dhikr-e-Qalb is or why to reform the heart, you need a spiritual guide. The way he explains matters of the heart is so unjust that it is no wonder more people are becoming Wahhabis. Today, he is disgraced around the world, and his fall from grace began the moment he troubled and spoke against Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi. When people in Pakistan saw the deception of so-called Sufi scholars like Tahir ul Qadri, they were left disgusted; this is something the Wahhabis took advantage of.

- A problem in Pakistan is that religious organisations also take part in politics. If the public wants religious scholars to be in power, they would have voted for them in the elections. This means the public doesn’t want Sharia in the land, however fanaticism and extremism are at their peaks in Pakistan because of the rise of Wahhabism. Wahhabi scholars say, ‘We want to implement Sharia Law in Pakistan,’ and use it as an excuse to kill people. They hate Pakistan’s constitution, even though the constitution gives first priority to God’s law and the prophethood of Mohammad.

Qasida: Koi Baat Karo Younus - Dilbar Yaad Aaye Hain

Younus AlGohar's beautiful recitation of Urdu poetry written by him for his spiritual guide, the Awaited One Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.


Koi baat karo Younus, Dilbar(Gohar) yaad aaye hain
Siski hain fizayen aur, sanaatay chhaye hain

Aankhon ki talab dil ki dharkan hai mera dilbar
Nazron mein hai weerani gham dil ne basaye hain

Mehroom-e-Nazaara hon masroor-e-tamanna kar
Mere dil ne sada dilbar, naghmay tere gaye hain

Un ka hi tassawur hai, un ki hi tamanna hai
kuch deir sahi lekin, wo bazm mein aaye hain

Bhoolo gay jahan mujh ko, pao gay wahien Dilbar(Gohar)
Mere dil ki dewaron par tere hi saaye hain
Mere dil ke dareechon par tere hi saaye hain

Younus nahen goya hai, ik aah-e-dil-e-weeran
kuch ujray howay gulshan mere dil ne samaye hain

Aankhon ka taqaza hai dedar muassar ho
Jab dil ko sada tum ne khud jalway dikhaye hain

Aadat hai in aankhon ko, tera jalwa/mukhra taknay ki (ooo)
in piyasi nigahon mein aansoo bhar aaye hain

Barhta hi raha dilbar, in ghazlon mein soz-e-dil (ooo)
tere ishq mein jal kar harf ghazlon mein samaye hain

Tujhe dil ne pukara hai saanson ne bulaya hai
Uljhi howi dharkan hai, saans ukhray jaye hai

Kis dam mein nikal jaye, ye jaan bina tere
yehi khof mujhe la'haq, yehi waswasay aaye hain

Ab jalwa dikha dijiye, ab muaaf khata kijiye
Bujhti howi aankhon ka, ye muddua laye hain

Ab aankhen pareshan hain aur saans hai ukhri si
Kuch deir ko thehro to mere Gohar aaye hain

Kiya dil ko dilasa hai us harf-e-tamanna ka
Younus ki duaon se Gohar chalay aaye hain

Muslims – The Principal Victims Of Wahhabism

We have mentioned the discriminatory, racial, irreligious and lunatic belief system which is prompted by the Wahhabi ideology. However, we did not discuss on this elevated level why non-Wahhabi Muslims cannot get along with Wahhabis. Why is there a fierce enmity, animosity and never ending grudge between mainstream Sufi Muslims and Wahhabis?
The majority of victims of Wahhabis are from within Islam. The majority of people that have been victimised, targeted and slaughtered are none other than the mainstream non-Wahhabi Muslims.
[I am explaining the] reasons why a mainstream Muslim cannot get along with Wahhabis.
What Wahhabis believe is more an emotional crisis for non-Wahhabi Muslims than a religious problem. What they believe is ultra-provocative to any Muslim who truly believes in Islam.
A true devout Muslim will suffer from an emotional setback and instantly, they will become enraged - for this is how inciting and provocative the tenets of the Wahhabi ideology are. Not many people who have taken on the task of making mainstream Muslims aware of the potential jeopardy of the widespread Wahhabi ideology talk about these things that I am going to talk about today.

The world must come to know how ugly a mentality a Wahhabi has and how irrational, insane, illogical, disrespectful, defiling and derogatory a Wahhabi Muslim is towards the founder of Islam, Prophet Mohammad. They have more than just double standards.

The world must know why a Sufi Muslim is so hateful in the eyes of a Wahhabi follower.
The amount of hatred that a Wahhabi has in his heart for Sufis is not because they might have done anything wrong; rather it is because Sufis exhibit love for the Prophet Mohammad. Wahhabis cannot tolerate anybody praising or showing love for Prophet Mohammad.
Most Wahhabis are from the Arab world. Their problem is that they are only aware of ego; they cannot respect anybody. When Prophet Mohammad came to their land, their brains couldn’t digest the heightened elevation of the spiritual status of Prophet Mohammad. They failed to grasp the amount of eminence given to Prophet Mohammad by his lord, his God.
On the other hand, God rather than guiding people, was playing a game of chess. He said to them what they wanted to hear from God. He told Prophet Mohammad to tell the Arabs, ‘I am a man like you.’ [Quran 41:6]

Their problem was [and is] that they cannot respect anybody other than themselves. This is a genetic problem; they can’t get rid of it.

Pakistani and Indian Muslims have lived in a Hindu society where people revere anyone easily, so they have learnt to give more respect. If anybody does anything good, a Hindu might say, ‘He is like my God.’ Regarding their mother, a Hindu may say, ‘What my mother has done for me, even God might not have done it. So for me, my mother is my God.’ This is their style of giving respect.
We lived in that society where showing respect was the fundamental approach towards religions.
As a result, when people from that society became Muslims, they started to give respect to the Quran. About 25 years ago when I was in Pakistan, people used to decorate the Quran with a velvet cover and keep it in the highest point in the house.

I can’t imagine the intensity of respect that would have been generated if God had sent Prophet Mohammad in either Sheikhupura or Gujranwala, or if he had been buried in Gujranwala or Faisalabad.

It is not mentioned in any of the Prophetic Traditions that you must decorate the Quran with a red velvet cover, that you must kiss it every time you see it or that you must keep it in the higher point of the house. This has come from the society we lived in, which was predominantly following the Hindu religion. They give a lot of respect to everything in their religion.

In Pakistan, we were discouraged from talking to our friends in mosque. We were told, ‘This is the House of God. Go outside if you want to talk. The mosque is for the prayers only.’ In Kaaba, the most sacred Muslim place, Saudi, Emirati and Kuwaiti men and women go for dating.

If a cleric in Pakistan was a Barelvi, they made sure that when they spoke about Prophet Mohammad, they would not leave any stone unturned in elevating his status. They said anything about not just Prophet Mohammad, but also the Companions of Prophet Mohammad. They gave us the impression that these people were holy human beings that never sinned or made a mistake. When we read the Quran, we cried because what we heard was a bundle of lies.

Every time we heard about their life and read their stories, I personally would condemn myself. I thought, ‘How can I not do what Usman-e-Ghani, Ali, Umar bin Khattab did?’ We were always fighting with ourselves, condemning ourselves and we were living under a severe form of guilt. We thought, ‘We are really bad Muslims. We can’t do anything.’

The clerics would say,  You want to do like what Umar bin Khattab did? What is your value and worth? You’re trying to compete with such holy people as Umar bin Khattab?’
They would say, ‘Ali was born in Kaaba. You were born in Karachi.’
I am telling the truth. I am only verbalising my emotions.
If you go to the birthplace of Islam, do not forget to take with you a microscope, because you will need to find Islam. You will not see it clearly with the naked eye. Islam is not to be seen anywhere.
All these years as a Muslim, before I was blessed to see Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, I only suffered. There are many problems to discuss, but these are a few of the points.

When you hear stories of dignitaries in Islam, you find it inspirational and you want to be like them. But when you ask clerics, ‘I want to be like Ali,’ they say, ‘This is Kufr (rejection of the truth).’ They want us to idealise the Companions of the Prophet and when we do, they tell us that it is Kufr. What kind of religion is this? When there is a football world cup going on, people start playing football because they find it a source of inspiration. When there is a cricket world cup going on, there is a glamour to it and people start playing cricket.

Similarly, when I would visit a shrine of a saint or a Sufi, I would be thinking, ‘I want to be like him. I want to be close to God the way he was.’ Every time I told somebody I wanted to be like Sufis such as Abdullah Shah Ghazi, they scorned me.
Today I say, ‘Islam does not exist anymore,’ but Islam has not been here for the last 400 years.
The Wahhabi ideology is not new; it is coming from the Arabian peninsula. At the time of Prophet Mohammad, there were some Muslims whose ego would not allow them to show respect to him. They would not leave any stone unturned in defiling, degrading and derogating Prophet Mohammad. Sometimes, they would criticise Prophet Mohammad for not being just. Some other times, they would criticise him for not being punctual in Salat (prayers).

Their problem was: they were from different tribes and since the birth of Islam, they lost their value. They used to be leaders of their tribes, people would come to them and respect them. Their ego was hurt when Islam was founded by Prophet Mohammad. They didn’t have anyone to respect them; all the respect would go to Prophet Mohammad. Those whose hearts were revived, enlightened and they became Momineen (true believers), they embraced Prophet Mohammad’s eminence and started to respect him.

Otherwise, in their culture, people would just scream at the top of their voice. Read Surah-e-Hujrat: they would come outside the Prophet Mohammad’s house, and they would yell, ‘Ya Mohammadah!’ God said to them, ‘Show some respect.’

Prophet Mohammad would be talking to somebody and they wouldn’t care; they would continuing screaming, showing no respect to the presence of the Prophet. In that situation, people would find it really difficult to understand what Prophet Mohammad was telling them.
This is why the Quran 49:2 said, ‘O’ Momineen, do not raise your voice over the voice of Prophet Mohammad. Do not speak to him the way you speak to each other. If you continue to do this, all your deeds, prayer and faith will be wasted. You will not even notice that you have lost your faith.’
So there were people at the time of Prophet Mohammad who had an ego problem. It was for this reason that these people built a mosque for themselves. They said, ‘Islam has come. We know what Islam is and the Quran has been revealed. We don’t have to go to this mosque where Mohammad is. More important is Islam, not Mohammad.’ They built a mosque for themselves because they could not respect Prophet Mohammad. However when they built the mosque, God said, ‘Demolish this mosque.’

When the mosque was demolished, these Muslims who didn’t want to bow before Prophet Mohammad or respect him, they started to offer prayers in their homes. When Prophet Mohammad found out, he said, ‘The mosque was demolished. Why don’t they come here now?’ Somebody said, ‘Now they offer prayers in their homes.’ Prophet Mohammad then said, ‘I just care for their children and wives, otherwise I would have set their houses on fire.’
They totally negated Prophet Mohammad from Islam. Their Islam is minus Mohammad. Their slogan was, ‘God’s land, God’s law. There should be no middle man.’ They are known as Khwarijeen.
They were quiet when Abu Bakr Sadiq was the caliph; they only created a few problems with giving Zakat (religious tax). When Umar bin Khattab became the caliph, they were quiet. When Usman-e-Ghani came, they killed him. When Ali became the caliph, there was a big mischief. There were 10 000 of them and he killed 5000. The other 5000 apparently repented, just to save themselves. What could Ali do then? He was bound by the law not to do anything, therefore 5000 were left.

Look at the tenets of the Wahhabi ideology. They say, ‘The only difference between a common man and Mohammad is that Mohammad was granted Wahi. He is like a postman. Those who kiss their thumbnails to show respect for Prophet Mohammad are actually committing Shirk (appointing a partner with God).’ Then they say, ‘These individuals by the name of Mohammad and Ali have no value.’

They also say, ‘There is no intermediary between a man and God.’ They totally reject the authenticity of mediumship. They want to be in contact with God directly. They say, ‘We don’t need any medium.’

However, contrary to their belief system, let’s see what the Quran says.
‘Oh Momineen, become pure. In order to find God, look for an intermediary.’ [Quran 5:35]
In total disagreement with Quran, is the Wahhabi ideology.
Wahhabis say, ‘There is no esoteric knowledge (batini talim). There is only exoteric knowledge (zahiri talim). There is no such thing as the esoteric realm (batin).’
Quran said about God, ‘God is in the exoteric realm and esoteric realm.’ [Quran 57:3]
I request peaceful Muslims to study the Quran well in order to understand the original form of Islam. Do not confine yourself to listening to a religious cleric only.
You are responsible for what belief system you want to practise. If you pick up a wrong belief system within Islam, you are responsible for this on the Day of Judgement.
No matter how many poor excuses you try to find on the Day of Judgement, you are not going to satisfy God. You are solely responsible to pick up the rightly guided belief system. You won't be able to say, ‘I was told in this mosque that I should do this.’ God would say, ‘Where was the Quran? Did you read it, did you try to understand it?’ You might reply, ‘No, but these were the representatives of Quran and Islam.’ God would then say, ‘Really? Were they endorsed by me? They were homegrown clerics who spent their lives having intercourse with young boys. How would they know of God and the Quran?’ Religious clerics [today] are the worst people under the sky, on Earth; worse than a wolf.

Salat is a Muslim prayer. What happens in Salat is that you recite verses of the Quran; in the last portion of Salat, you sit crossed-legged. You are supposed to send benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad and upon Prophet Abraham and his progeny. When you send benedictions upon Prophet Mohammad, you would definitely think of him. It is impossible that you talk about somebody and you won’t think about him.
However, the Wahhabi ideology projects that whoever thinks about Prophet Mohammad in Salat, his Salat is ruined. They say, ‘You are better off thinking about a donkey rather than Prophet Mohammad.’
When you say such things about Prophet Mohammad, who is revered by a devout Muslim, you are actually defiling their prophet; you are actually hurting their feelings and emotions. How can a Sufi Muslim have any respect for the Wahhabi ideology? Why would a Sufi Muslim not oppose the Wahhabi ideology?

We have been targeted by Wahhabis in Pakistan. We have been facing persecution at the hands of Wahhabis in Pakistan. 65 members of Messiah Foundation International, back in 2007, had to flee their country; they took refuge in India. With the help of the United Nations, United States of America and Canada offered them asylum. These individuals are now living peacefully in Canada, and in the United States of America. They are exercising free speech. They are allowed to practise what they believe. There is no hindrance either in Canada or United States of America because there is religious freedom. There is no religious freedom in Muslim countries.
Prophet Mohammad clearly said, ‘Do not demolish any church, temple, synagogue - any of the worship place of any non-Muslim.’
ISIS have demolished half the historic places in Syria. What they are doing is nowhere near Islam; it is in total opposition to what Prophet Mohammad has projected 1436 years ago.
I would like the entire world to come to know of the reality: what you call Muslims are not Muslims. They are hateful creatures. They are loyal to none. When they face God, I bet they would definitely find it difficult to even respect God. Their ego would not allow them to bow before God.
