What Does Islam Have To Do With Terrorism?
We are in the 15th century according to the Islamic calendar. Predictions made by the Prophet Mohammad about the future is limited to events which were to take place up until the 14th century. People are trying to see the future through the eyes of the predictions of Prophet Mohammad in the 15th century. Tell me: how will they come to know of what might happen in the future when there are no predictions made by the Prophet Mohammad in regards to the 15th century? It is very interesting to see that Imam Mehdi has manifested himself in the 15th century.
It is so sad to know that hatred and bloodshed is all that we see coming from religions, especially from the followers of Islam.
It would be very unwise to say that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, because unfortunately somehow or other, terrorism has flavours of Islam. This is not because Islam promotes hatred or violence.
You may be puzzled because of this statement made by me just now that you cannot deny the fact that Islam has something to do with the ongoing terrorist wave. However at the same time, I am maintaining to say that Islam cannot be fully blamed for what it has now been modified into.
Those who still practise Islam and those who still are of the opinion that Islam does not promote violence, I would like to tell them that Islam would have remained as a religion of peace had Islam been constantly aligned with Sufi practice, spiritual knowledge.
It is the spiritual knowledge within Islam that sustains sanity and peace among Muslims and other nations.
People need to understand the fact that the spiritual faculties in human beings are not controlled by the external aspect of the religion. Whether you love or you hate, you forgive or you hold a grudge, you are happy for your friends and other people being opulent or you become jealous; whether you become generous or you become stingy, these things have nothing to do with religious practice. They’re related to the inner faculties of human beings. These inner faults are not controlled by the outer aspect of the religion.
The different souls and spirits that a human body has in it have the ability and potential to manifest divine attributes, positive attitude, compassion, love and generosity. They have the ability to feel pain that other people are going through.
This happens when, with the help of spirituality, you succeed to enlighten your souls which are dormant at the time. These souls are spiritually activated, nurtured by the divine energy and trained by the spiritual master. If these souls inside your body are not nurtured, trained and enlightened, believe you me, it will not make any difference what religion you practise. Even with vigorous practice of any religion, you will remain to be a mark of humiliation upon humanity.
It is so unfortunate that people who are considered to be the leaders of different religious nations, their study of the religion is not very honest or profound. A very superficial approach is seen being taken by most of these religious leaders. Most of these religious leaders today may be aware partially of the truth; still, they are inspired by their inside evil. They ignore the true word of God. They manipulate the divine text in whichever direction their inner devil (Nafs) leads them to.
The Quran is not an easy book. Understanding of the Quran does not come from any sort of intelligence the you have in your mind, in your brain. Rather, it is compulsory that to understand the Quran, you need the wisdom and true intelligence filtered into your heart by God himself.
If your heart has not been trained by God to understand the Quran, the Quran has a very high [possibility] of misleading you.
The Quran is a very sharp book and no human being on Earth, with his own calibre, ability and wisdom, can understand the Quran. You need God’s help. God’s help is delivered to the hearts which have been enlightened.
If your heart is not enlightened, do not anticipate that God’s help will come. God’s help will only come to an enlightened heart.
This is the problem today. People have gone over the Quran maybe more than 1000 times in their religious seminaries and homes, still the have failed to figure out what true Islam is.
We declare in the light of our probe and extensive research, that the ideology behind terrorism is the ideology of Wahhabism, Salafism.
People who are naive to the spiritual aspect of the religion of Islam are jumping to conclusions and they have begun to say that the ideology of hatred comes from the Quran. I would like to make it clear to everybody: that is not true. However, I cannot fully deny that terrorism does not have any flavour from the religion of Islam. Somehow or other, Islam has a part to play in the ongoing atrocities, but this happens when only the outer aspect of Islam is practised or researched.
If the knowledge of the Quran is not aligned with the Sufi doctrine of love, the Quran will always mislead masses.
The Quran will not guide people who are deprived of spiritual knowledge.
The source of wisdom and true religious, theological intelligence is the enlightenment of the heart. The source of true wisdom and divine intelligence comes only when the heart is completely purified. It happens when your inner devil is completely purgated and mortified. Those who practise Islam and do not make any attempt to purify their inner devil, either they make up another sectarian faction or they end up becoming Osama bin Laden.
All the Muslims who have either rejected the existence of Sufism or they do accept the importance of Sufism, however they do not have the right knowledge of Sufism, they will always fall prey to the tricks of the devil.
One thing is very clear: do not attempt to study the Quran until, or unless, your inner devil is completely purified.
If you have not purified your inner devil, you are better off without studying the Quran. This is not something that I have fabricated myself. [It is very easy for Muslims to reject] anybody that gives them the right understanding of the Quran and Islam, who wants to tell them, ‘It is not just Muslims who are a nation of a prophet sent by God, but also the Christians, Jews, Hindus; the he Sikhs are also good people. Any spiritual mentor or prophet who came to help them came from God.’ It is very unfortunate that Muslims do to accept any other religion as a true religion.
Do not judge Islam by what Muslims do or say. Islam is totally different from what Muslims practise and say today. It is very unfortunate that 99.999% of Muslims do not know true Islam.
Only the Muslim preachers who were Sufi and spiritual preachers were reliable.
Whether a Sufi was in India, Egypt, Pakistan, or any other country of the world, you would see one thing in common: they all loved humanity. They did not hate anybody and they did not condemn sinners.
They invited sinners. Sinners flocked around them and in their very company, the sinners repented truly and their hearts were enlightened. Their inner devils were purified. They found the straight path that initiates from their heart and goes directly to God.
The Quran is a very complicated book. Sometimes it appears as if the Quran is contradicting itself. This is not because Quran has a problem, it is because those who collected it did not put the verses of the Quran in the right, chronological order. You will oftentimes notice that a new chapter begins in such a style as if it is the continuation of something that is missing. The first message delivered to the Prophet Mohammad by Gabriel is found in 96:1 of the Quran, not the first chapter of the Quran [as it should be]. This is where the problem lies.
Before the Quran was revealed, the seed of the Quran was implanted in the heart of Prophet Mohammad. The seed of the Quran was the name of God. The name of God in spirituality is used to produce divine light.
Given a very special spiritual methodology, when God’s name is spiritually transmitted into the beating system of the heart of the disciple, God’s name is repeatedly mentioned inside the chamber of the heart. When God’s name strikes against itself, it generates divine light, divine energy. This is how the production of divine energy takes place in the heart. Therefore once the heart is activated, the production of divine energy will not stop again. Your heart will become a generator of divine energy. That divine energy will have all the attributes of God enclosed in it: compassion, love, forgiveness, blessings. One day, when your entire bloodstream is enriched with divine energy, your entire body has been purified and the souls within your bod have become enriched with divine energy, that is the moment when the attributes of God will manifest through you. A time will come when God will speak through your mouth. You’ll become a true embodiment of love on two legs.
The religion of Islam, if it is accompanied by spirituality and Sufism, is the religion of compassion, love, forgiveness. However what we see today is not Islam. The wrapper is Islam but inside it, there is a fire.
Whatever is inside you, that will come out. Most crows are black. Painting a crow white to make it look like a pigeon won’t actually change it into a pigeon. Even if you paint the crow white, it will not have the attributes of a pigeon. It’ll look like a pigeon but it won’t behave like a pigeon.
This is what is happening today in the guise of Islam. These are evil, barbaric, brutal, hateful creatures in the guise of Muslims today. Don’t take them as Muslims; they are Satans. They can be anything, anyone but Muslims. If you are a Muslim, you must imitate Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, Abdul Qadir Jilani, Nizamuddin Auliya, Prophet Mohammad. How come in the Islam of [modern Muslims], Prophet Mohammad has no value? In this contemporary, Saudi-funded and Saudi-carved Islam, Prophet Mohammad has no place.
Zakir Naik of India has been recorded saying that according to him, believing in Prophet Mohammad is prohibited in Islam. To those who follow him: wake up! You’re following a wolf, a Satan. He is not a Muslim. Just think about it: how can this be Islam in which believing in Mohammad is prohibited? People should study the Quran and find out what it says about Prophet Mohammad and what he says about himself.
The Wahhabis say, ‘If you want to love God, become a Jihadist and God will love you. If you want to love God, put on an explosive jacket or drive a truck and run over 120 people and God will love you.’ This is nonsense; this is not Islam.
Islam is this: Quran said 3:31, ‘O’ Prophet Mohammad, tell them, if they want to love God, they must imitate you.’
[In contrast to what the Quran teaches] Zakir Naik says believing in Prophet Mohammad is prohibited. He is an enemy of Islam, Prophet Mohammad, humanity and God. He is not a human being. There is no such thing in Islam which gives you the freedom of doing whatever you want to do and not follow Quran and Prophet Mohammad. Whatever your opinion is you cannot declare it to be the Quran and Islam.
Islam is Islam in which your opinion has no value. Islam is what comes from Prophet Mohammad and God. If you pollute it with your thoughts and opinion, it is not worthy of acceptance by anyone. This is the case today: Islam is completely polluted with opinions of people like Zakir Naik.
