One Personality, Many Titles E His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi blessing a Sikh audience in Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi speaking before a Hanbali and Maliki Muslim audience in the Turkish Mosque in Brooklyn, New York, USA. very major religion has the concept of an end times saviour. The Muslims await Imam Mehdi, the Hindus await the Kalki Avatar and the Jews await the Messiah. It is a widespread belief among Muslims that Imam Mehdi will impose Islam; Hindus believe that Kalki Avatar will promulgate Hinduism (Sanatan Dharma); Rabbis believe that the Messiah will cater for the needs of Israel and spread the teachings of Judaism throughout the world. A point to ponder: the spiritual character, era and role of these three personalities is practically the same. It is God who sends different religions into different nations. Would it make sense for God to send three different personalities in the same timeframe? ‘If each one would try to impose his doctrine upon mankind, and bear the same authority and power, wouldn’t a tug of war between them start? Beware! The Awaited One is one personality known by different titles in different religions.’ ‘And you shall see flocks upon flocks of human beings entering the Religion of God.’ [KORAN 110:1-2] His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi speaking to a Christian audience in the Central Church of Tucson (Arizona, USA). It is predicted by various holy scriptures that in the end times, the Awaited One would unite humanity into One United Nation and bring with him God’s religion which would be acceptable to all humanity. [ISAIAH 2:1-4; JEREMIAH 31:31; ISAIAH 11:10; RAJHUL MUTALIB; IMAM JAFAR SADIQ (AL-MAJLISI, BIHAR AL-ANWAR, VOL. 52, P. 354)] The Koran declares that in the end times when the true believers revert from their religions, God will bring his people down on Earth; they will love God and God will love them. [KORAN 5:54] A similar concept is found in Hebrew literature. Th e time for the Religion of God has come. Religions no longer seem relevant to the problems of the modern man and woman. Religious extremism is at its peak and there are more atheists today than ever before. Practically, a large majority of human beings have turned away from God. We need something compatible with our progressive thought to reconnect us with divinity and to quench the thirst of our souls. 14 THE TRUE MEHDI • ISSUE 04 • SEPT 2017 THE TEACHINGS of HIS DIVINE EMINENCE GOHAR SHAHI YO U R H E A R T I S T H E P OT E N T I A L D W E L L I N G O F G O D His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi does not propagate any religion but advocates divine love and renders practical teachings of bringing God and his love in the heart. Y our body is not your reality; it is the container of the real you: your soul. God has nothing to do with our bodies. God created our souls whereas our bodies were formed in the wombs. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s teachings and method concern themselves with your inner being. Through his spiritual authority and power, he implants the seed of God’s love in the hearts of humankind. A Muslim thinks he is the best, a Jew thinks he is the best and a Christian thinks he is the best. However, I say that the best among all is one who loves God the most, in spite of his indifference to any religion. HIS DIVINE EMINENCE GOHAR SHAHI THE TRUE MEHDI • ISSUE 04 • SEPT 2017 15
