Teachings of Imam Mehdi


The Teachings of HDE Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi are the Ultimate Mirror and Guide

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi begin with Ishq (Rapturous Love). Thousands of people came to meet His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi and HDE may have said something about them, however it is not necessary for us to know what HDE has said about somebody else.  If HDE Gohar Shahi has said that so-and-so is a great man, that is good for him; but for me, it is important to know what HDE has said about me and what I should do. It is important for me to know the statements given by HDE regarding the teachings, eminence and ranks of the Lord.

If somebody says, 'HDE has said that this person is a Momin', who will verify that HDE has indeed said so? The person himself would be the verification. Whether you are a believer, a hypocrite, a lover or a Saint, the verification is within you, within your character. Those who are dependent on others for verification are blind.

You can say anything with your tongue; you can make any claim. You can say, ‘I am this. I am that. I am the best of all.’ But when you will open your mouth and speak, all the ugliness of your character will come out.

Those who attribute wrong statements to HDE Gohar Shahi that HDE has said great things about certain individuals, they should know that it is not just about preaching; it’s a practise. You say the Lord said great things about a person, but why is that person not propagating the teachings of HDE Gohar Shahi? Why does he/she not believe in the eminence and ranks of HDE Imam Mehdi/Messiah/Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi? It is very easy to open your mouth and preach but to become good, to purify your Nafs (Self) and become holy is altogether a different story.

Beware of all those who attribute wrong sayings to the Lord. Only judge somebody in the light of the teachings of HDE Gohar Shahi. If HDE Gohar Shahi has said something about a person, that person’s character shall prove it. Whatever is in your Batin (inner) shall one day manifest in your Zahir (outer) also and one does not need Spiritual Insight (Kashf) to know this.

HDE Gohar Shahi said that the world shall recognise Imam Mehdi when the different aspects of His Personality are revealed onto them. The fragrance of His sublime character shall spread and the world will automatically know who He is.

HDE Gohar Shahi said, 'The musk will reveal its presence by itself and the seller of that musk doesn’t have to say anything.'

According to the same law, can we not recognise a common man through his character?

If you want to know whether a person is a Momin, look in the Deen-e-Ilahi (The Religion of God) authored by HDE Gohar Shahi. This Holy Book is a mirror and one can see his true face in the light of these teachings. Make HDE Gohar Shahi’s teachings the mirror of your personality and faith. Use these teachings as the ultimate guide to judge and verify whatever it is you need to know.
