#AskYounusAlGohar - Do our prayers help the deceased or is their pre-decided fate permanent?

His Holiness Younus AlGohar'a lecture on the subject of fate, prayers for the deceased and the unprecedented bravado of the followers of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Main Points:

- It is Prophet Mohammad's method to send prayers to those who have passed and there is no doubt that the reward will reach them. However, it is only beneficial when your prayers and worship actually reach God but even then it is not enough to grant them salvation.

- The proof that the prayers and worship are not reaching God is the sectarianism within the religion. Prophet Mohammad said salvation is granted to those whose hearts are involved in their worship.

- Reciting prayers for the deceased is good, however, Prophet Mohammad wouldn't even recite the funeral prayer for the predestined hell-bound souls because it wouldn't do anything to change their fate. It only benefits those who were enlightened.

- If somebody dies after coming under the Merciful Sight of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi they do not require any such prayers. The Lord is enough for them. And they are the ones who are not afraid of the torment of the grave as they have been instructed by the Lord to give the angels a hard time before revealing their identity.
