Introduction to Truth - Review of The Universal Mystery

Postby Nicholas Ginex » Sun May 14, 2023 2:59 pm


Dear readers around the world, the above title came to mind after reading the unpublished book, The Universal Mystery by Anwar Shaikh. He is a profound author, philosopher, historian, Islamic scholar and exposer of Islam. His books and articles may be read on the IPC website by accessing, ... /index.htm

Not having any knowledge of the Hindu religion, The Universal Mystery gave this author some understanding of the Rig Veda, the oldest known Hindu text in recorded history. Referred to as the Vedas, it was orally passed on for thousands of years and finally written down between 1500-200 BCE; they were introduced into India by the Aryans.

The Aryans spoke an archaic Indo-European language and have settled in prehistoric times in ancient Iran and the northern Indian subcontinent. The Aryans, a light-skinned people invaded and conquered ancient India from the north. They developed literature, religion, and modes of social organization that subsequently shaped the course of Indian culture; particularly, the Vedic religion that was absorbed and eventually replaced by Hinduism

The reason Anwar Shaikh’s book evoked a great interest was that I had not been exposed to the Vedic religious texts and Hindu religion. For me, all religions are a form of philosophy by men in search of how they came to be and, in some cases, present the idea of eternal life by emulating a good life. This philosophy, evolved in the minds of men, are based solely on faith, which would even replace reason for many people.

However, hypothetical thought may actually lead to powerful findings. What once was imagined thought can become a reality and result in the greatest inventions and cures developed by mankind. Today, we are positioned to travel to other galaxies and we may be honored to meet intelligent life that has learned to live with other species throughout the universe. This is a topic that deserves more attention and will later be provided in a book that is anticipated to be released 3 or 4 months prior to the 2024 Presential Election.

This discourse was originally conceived to be presented into two volumes because the way we conduct our lives determines our future. Morality has been the motivating attribute that instructs a people how to respect one another. Anwar’s book, The Universal Mystery, added to my knowledge of religions that have been presented in several books hosted on the Iran Politics Club website. The one attribute I have a high regard for is Truth. This discourse forms the basis of this highly regarded attribute and directs my energy into writing my next book that will be presented on the IPC website.

As a curious young boy, I always wondered who was God and where did He come from? So that throughout my life I read about how the religions I was exposed to formed. Fortunately, my interest led me to read books about the religion of Egypt. This reading became a breakthrough to gain a better understanding of how the Judaic, Christian and Islamic religions evolved. After I retired as an electrical engineer, well into my late sixties, I wrote the first of several books. It revealed how the three major religions were an outgrowth of the Egyptian religion. That book, consisting in two parts, may be accessed on the IPC website titled, Legacy of a Father, The Evolution of God from the Past to the Future. It may be accessed via ... /index.htm

The above book was followed by Future of God Amen, which eliminated how Egypt’s civilization developed and solely concentrated on the development, formation, and present beliefs of the Egyptian, Judaic, Catholic and Islamic religions. Also available on the IPC website, it may be accessed via

The thrust of this writing is to give the reader a realistic view of our world as it exists today. The book that follows in 2024 will examine if mankind will be accepted into the universe by intelligent life we know abound in its many galaxies. It is hoped that all readers have a love and curiosity to seek, learn and share with others how to live a well-rounded life that promotes happiness, peace and meaning. For what is life if one does not have the love to appreciate all living things that are part of this world? We learn from one another and that is why much of our philosophy has prophetic words captured by respected men in religious scriptures. But, unfortunately, not all religious words strive to promote meaningful and wholesome lives.

To some degree, as revealed in the religious books by mankind, they were written in ignorance, others by deception, which documented lies; untruths that are accepted by constant indoctrination. For example, Jews and Christians are taught that Noah’s Flood in the Old Testament perished all mankind on earth except those that survived on a large boat. Yet history has shown that Egypt’s civilization existed before and after the flood which occurred around 2348 BCE. Today, this belief is found to be a lie because recorded history has provided proof of the existence of Egypt and many other countries before and after the flood.

Likewise, in the New Testament of the Bible, a perceptive thinker wonders if errors were committed by the Gospel writers or did Jesus truly announce the words below:

Matthew 10:37. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Luke 14:26. If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

These announcements appear to be incongruent and could not have been said by Jesus. Of the many powerful and memorable words spoken by Jesus, the verses by Matthew and Luke appear to be glaring errors for Jesus said, love thy enemies. More importantly, in the last Gospel of John, Jesus clearly stated three times, to “love one another.” Can a people love God if they have not learned to love His creations; that is a father, mother, wife, children, brethren, sisters, and one’s own life? This author contends that the most memorable command that applies to all people was given by Jesus in the last Gospel of Saint John. They are repeated below because to “love one another” would also apply to all living entities throughout the universe.

John 13:34. A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 15:12. This is my commandment. That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:17. These things I command you, that ye love one another.

It should be noted that the New Commandment, stated three times in John’s Gospel, Jesus omitted the first of all commandments provided in the Old and New Testament. Considered as the greatest command by the Judaic and Catholic priesthood, the words of these highly revered Testaments are provided below.

Mark 12:29-31. The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength; this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

It is to be noted that Jesus omitted, “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.” In addition, in place of, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” Jesus replaced it with “love one another.” A love not limited to a neighbor in Israel, but love for all people around the world.

Can it be that Jesus realized that love one another was essentially a new and prime command? For how can one love God, and deserve the love of God, without loving His creations? This is a profound command by Jesus; it required the brilliance of mind that relies on Truth. Love of mankind must be the reality that must be satisfied before loving, on faith alone, a God that has never been seen. Truly, nobody deserves the love of God if they have not learned to love His creations.

It becomes obvious that the Bible may not all be revelations from God, but commands written by holy men who conceived ways to improve the morality of their people and establish a hierarchy to lead the people. It would be fruitless to prove many inconsistencies of religious works. The most egregious errors of any religion are contained in The Qur’an. One of the worst commands is provided in Sura 9:29 below and its purpose is to have Islam eventually dominate the Judaic and Catholic religions.

Qur’an, Sura 9:29. Fight those from among the People of the Book who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last day, nor hold as unlawful that which Allah and His Messenger have declared to be unlawful nor follow the true religion, and who have not yet made peace with you, until they pay the tax (tribute) willingly and make their submission.

Can this be a Book of God if it advocates Islam is the true religion and sanctions violence and death to Jews, Christians and anyone who does not believe in Islam? The statement that Islam is the true religion is an egregious error. It should be obvious to intelligent men that God has revealed Himself to different peoples at different times, depending upon their level of perception and need to follow the attributes of righteousness and truth.

Many readers are aware of Islam’s atrocities and it is not proper to repeat them here. For those not familiar with Islamic abominations caused by the indoctrinated words of The Qur’an, it is recommended they read Section 3.0 of Allah, We, Our and Us; it is accessed via ... /index.htm

My goal is to share what I’ve learned from Anwar’s book, The Universal Mystery. Many profound statements were provided by Anwar which I found worthy to remember. For which reason, in my review of The Universal Mystery I have indicated many sentences in blue and commented were appropriate.

This author strongly feels that whenever one writes what could be of use to others, when possible, a secondary effort should be made to direct attention to the future and how they may contribute to a better life for all people. Hence, this review is a precursor to my next book, the highly respected attribute, Truth. It will be available on the IPC website 3 to 4 months prior to the 2024 Presential Election.
