There is a belief in every religion that its Prophet has supreme dignity, and the very same belief became the reason of wars among men of book. It is better you should go into the meetings of these Prophets through spirituality then you shall come to know that what dignity is possessed by whom and who is bearing what status. As for as me is concerned, one is admirable and is highly ranked who has love for Allah in ones heart, no matter what religion one belongs to.
بن عشق دلبر کے سچل کیا کفر ہے کیا اسلام ہے
(without love of the beloved, O' Sachal, what is infidelity, what is Islam)
Just as your eye hangs about the shining star likewise Allah too notices the shining hearts, it does not matter that those are religious or non religious.

Infact spirituality is not associated with Religion. It is to awaken the souls/spiritual entities inside human body. Some people use to absorb the light of Moon, Sun even Candle within them and acquire many types of abilities like telepathy, Hypnotism, mesmerism etc but this is connected with creations only. It is not possible to approach the vision of God through these mean/ways. Some people use to absorb the light of the name of God (Allah) within their bodies. They match the name Allah Allah with their heartbeats, then (Noor) the Divine Light ( due to the name Allah Allah) penetrate from blood and approach into the souls, then souls get enlightened by (Noor) the light of God, then through dream or vigilance (transcendental meditation) they starts cognize by God and able to approach different places for stroll, then these souls emerge from state of hear and goes to the state of sight/vision.

Religions are like Boats and the Scholars are like navigators. If either one is defective it is impossible to reach the destination. However the Saints do take the damaged Boats (people) safely to the shore.
It is in fact the remembrance by heart that cannot be performed without permission. You can perform meditation of all attributed names without taking permission, but the personal Name of God "Allah" cannot be performed until allowed. You are saying your supererogatory late night prayers while the devil standing at a corner is laughing since, according to him, your heart is in his hands and he can twist it at his will. And then there comes a time when you think why you cannot say even the essential prayers while earlier you used to say prayers regularly and also perform late night prayers. This all happens because the Satan has diverted your heart. However, you will like that when you perform worship, this personal Name of God of Allah should penetrate in your hearts. The Satan is worried because if the personal Name of God of Allah enters your heart, then what is left for him, since the light burns the Satan. The Satan has a Hindu force which is ordered by him to go and destroy by any means the person engaged in remembrance of Allah. He orders them to stop that man from incantation of Allah lest it should enter his heart. For this purpose, the Satan first of all enters your homes. Your family members come to know that you repeat Allah and they will oppose you, scare you. When the Satan is not successful in this effort, he will enter house of some prayer leader/priest (moulvi) who will warn you that the remembrance will ruin you. When you still do not obey him, the army of Satan will damage your business. On your continued resistance, they will turn you mad. People will think what happened to this man who used to recite Allah and has now become insane. And mind that if you do the remembrance of heart with the permission of a perfect guide, then the source where you get this remembrance, will be provided with a divine army from Allah. Whenever the satanic forces attack at you, the divine forces will retaliate and they will set in fight and meanwhile you will have the opportunity to perform Allah. If someone is not strong enough to obtain permission, he cannot succeed in the mention of Allah.
This is the only meditation of heart through which one can approach God face to face without any veil.

Muraqaba is literally journey/meditation in which the soul leaves the Human body.
Many people try to engage in Muraqaba without awakening the spiritual entities (Lataif/Shaktain) and without learning spiritual strength. They either fail to reach the meditative state or become the object of the satanic modalities. The meditation is for illuminated people, whose the self has been modified and the Qalb has been purified. This type of meditation is foolish for common folk, no matter what type of physical worship is used (to achieve this). To collect and gather the strength of the spiritual entities by light and then to travel a place is what is known as Muraqaba.

The entity Akhafa (The deeply hidden)
A person speaks due to spiritual entity Akhfa, otherwise a person is dumb even with a normal tongue. The difference between human being and animals is due to this entity. At the time of birth, if Akhfa was unable to enter the body for any reason, the respective Prophet had the duty (to treat the condition), and then the dumb would start to speak.
The entity Sirri (The Secret)
A person sees due to the spiritual entity Sirri. If it's failing to enter the body, the person is blind from birth. The respective Prophet had the duty to return the spiritual Entity (at the time of birth), then the blind would start to see again.
The entity Qalb (The Heart)
A person is like an animal, unacquainted, far from God, miserable and purposeless in life without entity Qalb. Returning this entity into the body was the task of the prophets also. The miracles of these prophets were also granted to the saints in the form of marvels, as a result of this the impious and the transgressor reached the Lord.
When the respective spiritual entity is returned through any Saint or Prophet, the deaf, dumb and the blind are healed.
The entity Anna
When the spiritual entity Anna fails to enter the body a person is regarded insane, even though all the nerves of the brain function normally.
The entity Khaffi (The Hidden)
A person is deaf without the spiritual entity Khaffi entering the body, even if the ear canals are wide open. The physical condition also can cause these defects in the body and are curable. But there is no cure for inborn defects till a Prophet or a Saint patronizes.
The entity Nafs (The camal or the Ego)
A person turn towards the material world due to Nafs and towards God with Qalb.

Differentiation is utterly not possible. Thief recognizes a thief, noor(divine light) recognizes noor. Two thieves sitting close to each other, will recognize each other by eyes. Momins (a person having divine light in the heart) siting before each other will have attraction because of their hearts. People of Heart, those who will be having Noor in their hearts will recognize Imam Mahdi, while those who have Satan in their hearts will support Satan. Or those people, these religions are created in this World; it was not there up on heavens, there was only Love. So, whoever loved Allah there in primordial times wherever they went i.e. in Hindus or infidel will follow Mahdi naturally. That is why those people, non-Muslims and Muslims also will support Imam Mahdi. But devilish powers will be against them. Just like Imam Mahdi will be given all powers of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), likewise Dajjal will have full powers of Satan.

About their quantity..... Prayers/Salats are obligatory for everyone. Only five are obligatory prayers, if anybody does not offer prayer, it is his/her own will. But beyond this there is a stage of Zakooriat (Chanting the name of Allah) and it has specific number. It is order for ordinary person, just like it is order for prayers; in the same way it is also instructed to do zikr. 5000 time daily zikr if you are punctual in five time prayers. If you are a Maulvi (cleric) do zikr 25000 times daily, only then you will be superior to the person doing 5000 times. If you want to become Qutab or Abdaal do zikr for 72000 times daily. If you wish to be passionate Lover of Allah do zikr for 125000 times a day. 125000 times is the quantity, only those people can achieve this stage of 125000 times whose heartbeats chant Allahs name. These (heartbeats) can be up to 6000 times in one hour and can exceed more than 125000 times a day. At the time of the victory of Mecca, hearts of the Companions of the Prophet approached the stage of 125000 times. At that time the verse was revealed "We (Allah) has forgiven all your sins". This verse is for every age. Even today if anyones heart approaches at 125,000; swear of Allah, Allah will forgive his/her all previous and coming sins. This is called Zikr-e-Qalb
this continues while sleeping, it continues while walking, it continues while working. For this it has some techniques/methods
learn those techniques/methods and try it yourself.

This is the lesson for Man to purify his self first. Because as long as self is polluted, no pure thing can stay within. Now, if your self is polluted, no matter how many prayers you offer or read Quran, nothing will remain within. Quran does not ask to offer prayer/salat but to establish prayer/salat
you only offer prayer. While offering prayer you become momin and the moment you finish it you revert to that same worldly tricks. This is not instructed. It is instructed to establish prayer/salat so that it may penetrate within you. So that when you offer prayer you are also Momin, while doing business also Momin, and while sleeping also Momin. To achieve this stage you need to purify your inner self first. Need to purify nafs/self. After that prayers and reciting Quran will go within you. With these effects souls within you will strengthened and ascend towards Allah. Whoever purifies the self, strengthen the souls is bound to have vision. And walis can bestow their vision without self/nafs purification upon anyone they wish to
.and they do so for whom they want to purify the nafs (Self).

Due to the signs of Allah and miracles/supernatural powers (kramat) people will recognize Imam Mahdi. Many fake Mahdis came, announced themselves (as Mahdi) and gone. And the One by God, will be announced by God Himself. Saints of the time will confirm about Him (Imam Mahdi). The trees and stones, sun and the moon, and earth and the sky will affirm about Him (Imam Mahdis) witness and in everybodys heart regardless of any religion will have the love and devotion in his heart for Him (Imam Mahdi). Only Satan and followers of Dajjal/Anti-Christ will hate and fight against Him (Imam Mahdi).

In 1994, few people in Manchester England pin pointed about the image on moon; afterward, from the entire world witnesses of the resemblance of this picture with us started receiving. For the confirmation of these images, the pictures of the moon were brought from the foreign countries and NASA. In the beginning, these pictures were dim but since the last two years, these have been become so clear that these can be seen even without binocular and computer. Regarding the picture on (Holy Black Stone) Hajr-e-aswad, was published in the newspapers that an image of someone is also being seen on (Holy Black Stone) Hajr-e-aswad. We confirmed it, though we already had information about this image but we kept silence with the doubt of antagonism among Muslims. Every Sarfaroosh (follower of His Holiness) himself was has already investigated about this picture. As, this picture was clear enough that it was difficult to deny it. Consequently, a large segment of population got agreed with it. Saudi Arabia and its allies became agonized. They repeating, I dont admit gave reasons that picture is unlawful (haram), how it has appeared on Hajr-e-Aswad? They didnt think that no sign could be unlawful (haram) shown by God. Now, the pictures have been clear even on the sun. The signs of God couldnt be refused. The signs of God are not for creating perfidy but to eliminate perfidy. God says in Holy Quran, Soon, well show you our signs on the earth and sky, even within your selfs (Nafus), too.
We have informed the government of Pakistan time and again about the reasons of cases and investigation of these pictures. But on government level these sings of God were denied just because of the pressure of the people who deny the teachings of holy saints. Moreover, Nawaz government stressed much the government of Sindh that Gohar Shahi should be captured, pressurized, or abolished by hook or by crook. Now, we have also contacted military establishment that they should also investigate these signs justly and should not keep the signs of God behind the curtain with the fear of Deobandi, Wahabi or coming under pressure of any so-called, sectarian, and extremist scholars otherwise this government, too, does not have any right to govern because without justice a king remains crownless by God.

We spread the teachings of love of God without any discrimination of color and creed. It is our message that the heart in which there is no love of God, the existence of that person is meaningless. With the love of God, human wrongdoings started diminishing gradually. We are facing the opposition of so-called contractors of the religion in this mission. The reason of this opposition is their jealousy and proudness/grandiosity. The people who really love God they attach with us in unison of mind, body, soul and also become a source of straight path for others too. A scholar let others see an imaginary paradise but the God-lovers incline others towards the love of God. Once the love with God happens, then God shows the real heaven even in the world. The scholars can give only the knowledge of Shariat (law of Prophet Muhammad) but our teachings are even beyond Tareeqat (mysticism), Haqeeqat (reality), and Marafat. Earlier the personal name of God Allah was got in jungles with luck but now this being obtained while sitting at homes.

Believe it that the Wali/Saint achieves higher rank than a Syed. He even enters into Ahl-E-Bait. Syed cannot enter into Ahl-E-Bait. Wali/Saint enters into Ahl-E-Bait. Wali/Saint through spiritual entities gets nourished by Hazrat Fatima Al- Zahra (as). She (as) calls him light bearer (Noori) & attendee (Hazoori) son. He is to be called light bearer (Noori) & attendee (Hazoori) son. He is nourished by them and enters into Ahl-E-Bait.
