    Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah RadiAllahu Ta'ala Anhu has narrated that the Beloved and the Blessed Prophet ﷺ said, 'Allah Azzawajal has said, 'Whoever causes pain to a saint, i declare war with him. A bondsman seeks closeness to me most through Faraid (obligatory acts) and he continues to gain closeness to me by means of Nawafil (superergatory Salah), until i start to love him. When i make the bondsman my beloved, i become his ear through which he hears, become his eye by which he sees, become his hand through which he holds and become his leg through which he walks. Then if he begs Me, i bestow upon him, and if he seeks my protection, i grant him protection.' (Sahih Bukhari, vol. 4, pp. 248, Hadees 6502)

    Regarding the foregoing Hadees, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Na'eemi Rahmatullahi Ta'ala Alayh has stated: This line doesn't mean that Allah Azzawajal enters the body of a saint as fire into coal or colour or smell into flower as Allah Azzawajal is free of entering (anything /anybody) and this belief is kufr. It has some meanings: One of them is that these parts of the saint's body do not commit sins, always perform good deeds; Worship becomes easy for him, that is to say, I am making him perform all acts of worship or it means that person then does not use these body parts for the world, only uses for Me, sees Me in everything, hears My voice in every voice, or it means that that person becomes Fanafillah (Annihilation in Allah), by which Divine powers work in his body parts and he performs those deeds which are beyond comprehension.

    Sitting in Kin'aan Sayyiduna Yaqoob Alayhisalam smelt the fragrance of Yusuf's Qamees that was on the way to Egypt; Sayyiduna Sulayman Alayhisalam heard the voice of an ant from the distance of 3 miles; Sayyiduna Asif Bin Barkhiya brought the throne of Bilqees from Yaman to Egypt to the wink of an eye. Delivering sermon at Madinah Munawwarah Sayyiduna Umar RadiAllahu Ta'ala Anhu was heard even in Nahawand. All these are the miracles of this power. (Mirat-ul-Manajeeh, vol. 3, pp. 308)
