An Introduction to Messiah Foundation International
Who we are and what we do
Messiah Foundation International is an interfaith organisation that promotes spiritual sciences across all nations and religions. The Messiah Foundation is the successor of RAGS International, an organisation personally founded by His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi in 1980. Our philosophy and activities reflect the transcendent nature of His Divine Eminence’s teachings. His Divine Eminence, through spirituality, invites all humanity to obtain divine love without discrimination.
We want to lessen intolerance and religious ignorance by promoting the spiritual sciences. We envision a world in which peace, respect, equality, justice and mutual love practically prevail.
We herald the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ and the advent of the Promised Messiah, Foretold Kalki Avatar and Awaited Imam Mehdi, His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. We also raise awareness of the divine signs on the surfaces of the Moon, Sun, Holy Black Stone (in Kaaba, Mecca) and various other celestial and terrestrial bodies.
With the recent wave of terrorism, we have made it a priority to foster mutual understanding and tolerance between different faith groups. One of the services we offer are free de-radicalisation classes, which give members of the public a profound interpretation of religion; in these classes, we focus on comprehensively countering the claims used by extremists to attract vulnerable individuals towards their twisted cause.
We provide free spiritual healing to anyone suffering from physical or spiritual illnesses. Our YouTube channel comprises over 1000 educational videos covering myriad topics from spirituality to world affairs - all available without charge to the public. Our monthly publications, the Messiah Herald and The True Mehdi, feature exclusive, essential content from HH Younus AlGohar (CEO of MFI and representative of His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi). Both of these magazines can be accessed for free online and in print.
Our main office is located in London, UK. Since our inception in the early 2000’s, we have taken the message of divine love to a wide range of countries around the world. We have centres in the United States of America, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Australia, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Our sister organisations, Kalki Avatar Foundation and Mehdi Foundation International, operate in these countries as well; Mehdi Foundation can also be found in Pakistan. If you want to get in touch with us in your country or have any feedback for us, we would love to hear from you.
