About Imam Mahdi and Gohar Shahi

Question:

As Salam Aleykoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatouh

Bismillah r rahman r rahim

I saw this video on youtube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1P7qe7Em1E& feature=watch_response_rev and this website : http://www.gohar-shahi.com/

Sheikh Gohar Shahi claims to be the Imam Mahdi. As mawlana Sheikh Hisham came to take authorisation for zikr from him, shall we follow him when time has come?

I must say that his face feels me with good feellings mash Allah.

Answer:

wa `alaykum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, wa ‘s-salamu `ala man ‘ttabi`a ‘l-huda

laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi ‘l-`Aliyyi ‘l-`Azheem
There is no might and now power except with Allah they Exalted the Magnificent.

Whoever claimed that Shaykh Hisham came to take dhikr from Gohar Shahi, in fact lied. Gohar Shahi requested to visit Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani at his home in California. Shaykh Hisham did not know this person, and in the tradition of Muslim hospitality, invited him into his home and showed him the respect due to someone who was outwardly a pious scholar and tariqah shaykh. Later false and nonsensical claims that Shaykh Hisham took baya` or took awrad from him are invalid, rather Shaykh Hisham’s impeccable adab is, like Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, to accept wa`zh and even reprimand from anyone, to recite dhikr with anyone and to act like a common person.

As for claims to be Mahdi, if Gohar Shahi had said so to Shaykh Hisham, he would have refuted him there and then. Instead he posed as a Qadiri shaykh. Since Mahdi’s appearance, birth and lineage are well known from many authentic hadith, it is clear that this man is not Mahdi and should withdraw his false claims.

I bear witness to the utter falsehood of these claims as I was present at this meeting.
