When this scientist was explaining the complexities involved in the creation of a simple roach. but a philosopher who has just heard the name of this plane. This verse emphasizes that the prophet was illiterate. speaking about an F16 fighter. he connected some micro wires to the nerves of a roach and by sending numerical signals through a computer. he built a robot which could duplicate some of the simple movements of a roach. then what are the arguments raised by some scientists who consider life as some form of undetermined and random reaction of amino acids? In my opinion.

Most of the popularity of Rumi in the west is due to the translations of his books by Coleman Barks. how can anyone boast to be thy equal. Most of the beauty of Hafiz and Rumi’s work comes from the innumerable references to the Koran throughout their poetry either by direct quotation or by allusion.” Goethe calls Hafiz "Saint Hafiz" and "celestial Friend".

Dark matter is not known to anybody. After other investigations of scientists on this mystery. As you see. The story started about 80 years ago. expanded to the size and temperature of our current universe and is still expanding and cooling. indicated that the vast majority of the universe mass. nor matter is so well known. contrary to what people think. they referred to this undetectable matter as “Dark Matter”. which might likely be floating around you and hitting your face. He found that the jumble had hundreds of times more gravitational force than it should have. while we are inside of it. is missing and should be in the form of dark matter. since they did not have any explanation. when an astrophysicist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois used Einstein's famous equation "E=mc^2" (which describes the relation between energy and matter) and calculated the mass of a jumble of galaxies. in which we are traveling at a constant speed. they hypothesized that there must be some other type of matter which cannot be detected. neither time. Most of us think of time as an ever existing one way road. cannot pass through each other. our imagination of the universe. In addition. A road in which what has passed is out of our control and whatever we do now. invisible particle that is different from normal matter but exerts a gravitational force! Scientists believe there is potential for the existence of some other type of "weakly interacting massive particles".Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 29 wall and since they have the same speed of vibration. nobody really knows where or in what dimension is the missing part of the universe. far above its visible mass.

I remember the first time I came across these subjects and observed a wound scar disappear (in a way that only a red shin similar to a mosquito bite was observed). This poem is one of the mysterious works of Rumi. consider it as a hypothetical cone. For simplicity. Only some minor parts of it have been known to you. unity prevails and all identities get fused into the essence of God. This poem of Rumi emphasizes the fact that by ascending from the shield of time (in the higher level of vibrations). This circular plate is your materialistic body. For in that side all the people are one. the intersection will be a circular flat plate. In the next line he points out that relieving from time. in order to understand these new concepts one will need to detach from the classical concept of matter. and height. in some hypothetical dimension. Rumi jumps out of the time shield and sees that all people are united and of one identity. If you intersect this cone with a plain surface. I was thinking hopelessly for two weeks to find an answer. we can return to the description of the mystical body. called mystical body. As the point of a spear glances off a shield. World without beginning and world without end are one. time disappears. he emphasizes that this cannot be understood by mental reasoning (it can only be understood by heart feeling). With this introduction. based on my classical knowledge from 22 years of education! In order to understand the supernatural events of mysticism. width. Let’s assign a shape for this body.

Islamic Mysticism provides training and instructions to improve mystical capabilities. by every change in the viewing parameter (intelligence level) . we will show that even a wild animal. It means that all of the sounds co-exist in the air. Usually small kids. Based on this. but can be felt by another sensor. such as a dangerous snake. Above and below this plane your sensors do not work and therefore. Ordinary people are not able to see these pictures but can feel it. called “Hemmat”. is harmless to someone with advanced mystical training. exactly like receiving different songs from a single radio. it means that the person has a good looking mystical appearance (although he or she may look unattractive in physical appearance).

If you keep changing the knob. but for revealing any particular wave. good looking. taste. This can only be accomplished by the aid of a true master. which can only be detected by people with strong mystical sensors. in addition to the “mind perception” which is based on materialistic senses ordinary people have. the picture becomes blurred and vanishes and then a new picture appears which might be unattractive and ugly.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 31 within this plane you can see. consider your eyes to have a turning knob.

A Mystic master will play the role of a catalyst to change a disciple’s perception of God from a “mind conception” to a “heart conception”. by looking at someone. corresponding to different intelligence levels for each person. or feel. The more you get away from the mystical life and get attached to the materialistic life. hear. by every change in frequency. Later. you will have a “heart perception” which is based on your mystical senses. a new image appears. will like this kind of people. referred to them by classical Islamic mysticism as the “heart sensors”. If you turn the knob. .

My mother is Love. Rumi and all other mystical leaders completely acknowledged that there is no chance that one could reach a state of mysticism without the aid of a true master. he remarks: “I am slave of the divine power of that master. Kiss me on the lips. whoever you are. as it was explained. Hafiz states: “In Love’s street. knows the work of an alchemist” Rumi. Hafiz compares the master to an alchemist. until he met “Shams”.

The movie and the book gained widespread attention in the media and in the same year. some people have established the wrong analogy that by thinking (mind concept). There is another shortcoming associated with the law of attraction which claims that controlling thoughts will influence chance and destination. It simply states that thoughts can affect things outside the mind.

Similar to the physical domain in which you need two items of thought (mind concept). appeared on the New York Times Best Seller list. is this approach in complete agreement with what we explained above. in order to be capable in the metaphysical domain.

Understanding of mystical identity for people who are expecting to receive their response from today’s science is not easy. nor your brain cells which process image pixels. Turkish mystical poet Emre calls it someone inside of us. We are a multi-dimensional mystical creature. You are therefore without proper mystical training. The Ego cannot see beyond its own selfish and urgent interests and by the time you are under his tyranny.34 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power Even if this claim was true. ethical and philanthropic. he must shake and quake. science needs to run about 1. The Holy Koran gives great respect to the Human for his/her supernatural capabilities and states that if Humans remove their impurities (impurities of the mystical body). He says:” There is a self in me. you cannot resolve between good and evil and will always be entangled with all the unrecognized negative feelings and habits. Final destination in Islamic mystic training is to become a perfect human. is not true. Every second our brain is processing 400 billion bits of information. For becoming a perfect human. . and enjoys. which is different from becoming a person who is good. What we assume of ourselves as a physical creature. because neither your eyes which receive and transfer color signals. again proving that we are away from reality by a factor of a million. As you have this animal with you. Most of the problems viewed by you as mental diseases. and space. An important portion of what happens in our body is related to our mystical body. An obvious example of our ignorance about what happens in our body. you need to tame a cruel and brutal dragon inside of you named Ego. relates to the performance of our brain.” The person inside of you is a real part of you. within myself”. with an unknown and complex identity.5 million times more to catch up. He or she is the one who sees. time. do the act of seeing. and you will not have any chance of having controlled thinking. Hafiz explains it similarly: “I know not who resides within my heart Though I am silent. Our physical body is not separated from our mystical body and is part of that. and we are only aware of 2000 bits. even to think that you can have the explained attributes is to deceive yourself. Although the present accomplishments of science are great and admirable. they will become God’s deputies on earth or vicegerents. being able to constantly control one’s thinking in a positive direction is not possible given the presence of a strong Ego. but considering the total history of science and technology is less than 10 thousand years old and the history of the creation is about 15 billion years old. to give us an accurate view of mystical capabilities. hears. Many things are to be known about matter.

For example. while in three dimensional concept. If somebody is lifted by a helicopter from the ground. In mystical interpretations. if you fail to know this body and do not know how to save it or please it. If you again limit yourself to a two dimensional view and look at the surface of a swimming pool. while someone is diving in the water. Being a scientist. you need to spend many years of wasteful research to figure out what is going on. Therefore. you will only see shoes of people. looking from a small hole into the empire’s palace! If we diversify our sight and look at life from a mystical point of view. Most of the fear and anxiety that people have in the life is related to their unawareness of other dimensions of their lives. you would notice how simple and trivial the problem is. based on limited materialistic sensors of our physical body. if you limit yourself to a two dimensional point of view and look at the ground. at first two mysterious circles appear (by entering hands of the diver into the water). you will lose your sense of real enjoyment. you will be scared. if you want to move from the finger to the toe. you will never taste happiness.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 35 are related to your multi-dimensional mystical body. we are ants. For the above case. and a fire flame being cold and harmless. if you think with your classical criteria. this will occur instantly. as was said. For example. many of the problems that sound mysterious and complex will become trivial and simple. it will look unreal to you seeing a healing process taking place in a short time. in this book you will face events which will look magical or unreal. Evaluation of existence. will not lead to realistic results. then strange interactions of circular shapes will appear. a snake bite being safe. while if you just add one dimension to your view. then another circle will form between the two circles (by entering head of the diver). since you would think that he has vanished. . If you cause damage to this body (by using narcotics or sinful acts) or disrupt your connections with it. it will take you some time (you have to wait until the whole body passes the water surface). The reason that I am emphasizing these items is because.

since God has no physical existence to reach. another leading mystic says. In reward. never heard by an ear and never conceived by a heart. and that He may pay them back fully their deeds and they shall not be wronged. the most important duty of a master is to utilize his supernatural power to change the “mind concept” of God for the disciple. never seen by an eye. no trash was dumped. eat. Real Islam. The nature of a master’s mission and capabilities is not fully known and no master has ever revealed the details. He helps the disciple to cultivate sound behavior and purge himself of bad habits. based on mysticism. envy. he promises the disciple will be given a state of supernatural awareness and closeness to God. because God never created a man with two hearts.36 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power Master of Mysticism Following one single master is an indispensable matter for all the Islamic and non-Islamic mystical schools. A prospective master must be briefed and guided by a well-established master who is tribally related to the Prophet Muhammad (P). There was a neighbor of the prophet who dumped rubbish on his head every morning. to a “heart concept” and elevate him to a group named “the Foremost”. The woman was sick in bed. who follows no guide. and others. which could be alive but couldn’t be fruitful”. One morning when he was walking by her house. According to the Koran. “He. "A disciple without a master is like a naturally grown tree. “And for all are degrees according to what they did. Daqaq. a leading mystic says. Master helps his disciples to approach God and shift their degree to a higher position. He must be a man of self-denial. would be lured by the Devil”. when he passed by her house. Upon seeing his compassion and care for her when she had treated him so poorly. Leading mystics believe that having multi-masters is fatal and striking. (46:19)”. no mystic would be able to achieve success. He went inside the house and mercifully asked if she was well. Abu Yazeed. When the disciple dedicates himself to the master. sleep and . everybody has a grade before God. Without a true master. This shift is not physical but is mystical and supernatural. he will learn how to endure the harms of people. In Islamic mysticism. The Prophet Muhammad (P) replied to those polytheists who harmed him “May Allah forgive them for they are ignorant of their acts”. As it was emphasized before. master is the source of inspiration to the disciple. she wept and became one of his followers. flattery. like lying. invites people towards love and forgiveness. as Gabriel was the Prophet Muhammad’s source of divine inspiration. which is the nearest to God and would receive the highest grace by Him.

"(Koran 2:51) Forty was the number of days that Prophet Ilyas (P) spent in the wilderness before God appeared to him in a cave on Mount Sinai (also known as Mount Horeb) Hafiz also took a 40 night vigil at a cave. Becoming a master is not a matter of chance. . He must be patient. Rumi states that there are thousands of points in becoming a true master and not everyone who calls himself a master can accomplish the mission: “Here. during which he fasted and engaged in worship and prayer. confident. he got a sense of mystical awareness about which he states: Yesterday at dawn I was freed from my grief. eyes become unveiled and incredible supernatural capabilities become accessible. "And when We appointed (a period of) forty nights with Moses. During this period. Prophet Jesus (P) for forty days walked the desert and fasted in the wilderness.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 37 speak moderately and must be fully dedicated to the worship of God. faithful and modest. At the last night of this period. It is a God given gift and nobody can obtain it through only worship and training. he must be in a fasting stage. who have been the mystical masters of their era. the wellsprings of wisdom shall appear from his heart to his tongue. one enters a remote and quiet place for forty days and stays quiet throughout the entire period. In the practice of vigil. the Prophet Muhammad (P) states: “Whoever wholly dedicates to God 40 days. The reason Vigil has been practiced by all the prophets and mystical masters is because it is a technique for opening the mystical barriers. Vigil is one of these practices. Prophet Moses (P) spent 40 days on Mount Sinai where he received the 10 commandments." Effectiveness of Vigil in the course of supernatural training is an inevitable fact and most of the prophets of God. are a thousand points: Not everyone who shaves his head the work of a bully knows” There are many mysterious and difficult trainings and practices involved in the submission of a new master. thankful. which is most often used by the mystical masters and very seldom by leading mystics. using a very limited amount of food and maintain a constant order of God’s remembrance. generous. And in the darkness of the night I was given the elixir of life. finer than a hair. or metaphysical locks of a human. In this case physical and metaphysical senses get connected to each other. Some cases are as follows: • • • • • God revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (P) to keep away 40 days from people. have taken Vigil. In approval of Vigil. before receiving the first message of God.

Bay’a will be explained in detail in the future chapters. instead of the hand. people had to rub two pieces of wood together for many hours. Going back to the main subject. After completion of the Bay’a. then the one who is willing to pledge. Scientists noticed that if they come to a procedure to open the lock of a cell. this simple operation of Bay’a in Islamic . except the red blood. This is the reason that stomach cells. The first cloned animal produced in the lab was a sheep. about 90 percent of the DNA which was the reproduction instruction of the cell was locked and every cell. conveys many spiritual secrets. some magical things happen and locks get opened and a cell with limited application. it is equipped with a lighter named Bay’a (pledge). which could easily turn on the divine light in anybody’s heart. according to its place in the body. the divine light will start shining in the disciple’s heart. the fire would light. Years of research was carried out until a scientist discovered that if a cell be isolated and left in a state of rest without feeding. born in 1996 in Scotland. can only produce a stomach and do not produce an eye or an ear.38 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power What is done in Vigil is very similar to the technique used for opening the genetic locks of a cell in the cloning operation. will change to a versatile cell which is capable of generating a complete creature. reads the text related to Bay’a sentence by sentence after the master or Caliph. Modern techniques take advantage of an electric lighter. puts his hand in a state of shaking in the right hand of the master or his deputy. This text is a kind of repentance from sins and bad habits and is a request for supernatural connection with the master and a chain of passed away saints. after an exhausting operation. has a copy of the complete set of information required for the production of a complete animal. she holds the beads of the master or the Caliph. Cloning started at the time scientists noticed that every mammal’s cell. In the case of offering Bay’a to a woman. it is a simple operation where a man who wants to follow the pledge. Bay’a. every cell could produce the whole mammal. till close to starvation. egg and sperm cells. starting with the Prophet Muhammad (P). Cloning is a technique for generation of an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. which can be used to light the fire with the least amount of work and without any risk. According to many interviews done with the people who have experienced other mystical schools. In the old ages. called Caliph. The only problem for producing a complete animal from a single cell was that according to the type of cell. but to describe it briefly here. could only produce a similar cell with its specific applications. although it seems quick and simple. Since Islamic mysticism is the latest documented (by the Koran) technique introduced by God. If weather was not humid and desirable wind was blowing. for lighting a fire. the most important duty of a master is to light the fire of Divine Love inside the disciple’s heart.

Al-Tabarani narrated from the prophet Muhammad (P) that he said: “If somebody of you needs something or he wants an aid whilst he is in a place inwhich there are no dwellers. Solomon wishes to transfer the throne of Belgheis to his palace. One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye. A true master must be aware of the things happening far away. which gives him a sense of awareness of the disciple’s activity in the metaphysical domain. Belgheis. The analogy described here is not hypothetical and I have proof of its details. whilst you cannot see them. All the data of which the mystical body of the master is aware cannot be transferred to his memory (it is so large that it could blow anybody’s mind). notifies the physical senses of the master. (said to be a deputy of Solomon named Asef). in the cases which require. (27:40)”. and most surely I am strong (and) trusty for it.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 39 mysticism is more effective than many years of exhausting training imposed on the disciples in other mystical schools. To show his sovereignty. If a master interrogates his mystical mind about a subject. let him say: Oh worshippers of God help me. This property does not have anything to do with physical abilities and relates only to the mystical capacities of a master. This is the most important property of the masters. When he asks his disciples to do so. and related to a large number of disciples. based on his unique capability gets related to the disciple. which is consistent with our description of “Ghause”. based on many practical cases that have happened for myself and my close mystic friends. the master. he said: This is of the grace of my Lord. whilst God has unseen worshippers”. Then when he saw it settled beside him. something similar to a server linked to several terminals in a computer networking system. “One audacious among the jinn said: I will bring it to you before you rise up from your place. which refers to a power through which one can perform duties or help others without physical presence! There is a story in the Koran. As it is said. a man with the capacity of “Ghause”. This is the reason that a master has the capability to be aware of. which can be assumed as God’s prohibition) the matter. then the related data gets transferred to his mind and his physical body becomes aware of (unless a masking operation happens. In the story of Prophet Solomon (P) with the Queen of Sheba. . The mystical body of the master which is aware of all incidents. without seeing the throne was aware of its place and could transfer it to the palace of Solomon in the glance of an eye. This sacred speech indicates that God has people who are aware of you and can help you. By doing Bay’a. called the power of being a “Ghause”.

Whenever he wants to make people aware of a prophecy. This gives a triangle of 356 people. friend. Whenever he performs a supernatural . which for the top rank grants new life. According to my experience with the present master. but to elite. This refers to someone who has a powerful mystical body which is linked to his physical body in a way that can transfer data with it. but only to Almighty God. Those with good natures will be liberated. Actually a true master has some disciples who. 40 “Abdal”. which lights the path for the disciple. The lesser saint is like his reflection. with 300 people at the bottom and one person at the top. He does not expose himself to ordinary people. The master has other capabilities which make him head of other Ghauses. But those with frail hearts will be devastated. known as the “Pious of Harat” states that at all times there are 300 “Olia”. This light is a new life for the truth seekers but for the squint-eyed is nothing but a pain. because they will honor him as God or would consider him to be Son of God or etc.” Rumi states that the master has a divine wisdom. less bright. Rumi states: “There is a saint for every era. He states: "The God which I have worshipped all my life appeared to me today in human form. have reached to the “Ghause” level. This continues till the resurrection day. he is also very careful not to make himself glorified by people. he’s the light. he quotes it from someone else. Famous mystic Abdullah Ansari (1006). 5 “Noghaba”. He also mentions that other saints are reflections of the master’s light and if the master turns off. That light. 7 “Otad”. Being a “Ghause” is not limited to the master. glorified him as God.40 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power As explained. by following a master’s training. Sheikh Muhammad Kasnazan. Ghaus of the Era is a super human and has incredible power in his possession. there is a unique master who is “Ghaus of the Era” and is head of all the Ghauses. and is assumed to be the deputy of the Prophet Muhammad (P) on Earth. Islamic Mysticism believes that at all times. To the squint-eyed brings only pain and strife. because Human’s heart belongs to no human." Masters believe that conquering people’s hearts is some sort of competing with God. saints also have different degrees. they will lose their light. one of the capacities that a mystical master must have is to be a “Ghause”. With wisdom as his Gabriel. The same as ordinary people who have degrees before God. 3 “Mokhtar” and one “Ghaus” (Ghaus of the Era). Rumi also when he first met his master “Shams”.

This universal energy field does not act upon itself and is organized and conscious. 4. Ma’aona: Is an act done by a common person who receives such capability through a votary or master. done by a corrupted person to pervert people from God’s way. Karama: It is a supernatural act related to the realm of Miracle done by a votary (righteous man) as a sign for the respectable position he holds before God . Masters and people with strong mystical properties can influence this intelligence and therefore. whom he or she is connected to. They have dominance in the domain of human. Ibn Arabi (1165) reveals the first time that his eyes became unveiled: “When I was performing the sunset prayer. I was like a ball having no specific destination. The way they apply their command is through the information package of a matter. he pretends that he is just wishing it and is not certain about its happening. 2. Contrary to these. animal and matter. I myself and some leading mystics close to me. Whenever he himself gets ill.

Supernatural abilities are embodied in different manifestations. Einstein showed that the material world is nothing but energy and that everything in existence is part of this universal field of energy. who works for the present master.” I have several experiences indicating the truth of this saying. which has made us assured of the fact that the Ghaus of the Era is the vicegerent of God.

Suddenly the master halts his speech and without turning his face. points his finger to my friend and says: “With all the problems that we have. vibrating at different frequencies and intensities. Some of the more important are described as: 1.

which states the story of prophet Abraham (P). His Command is “Be” and it is. The Al-Mighty says in the Koran: “When He intends a thing. they are just means for accomplishment of an act. but God does it. What was said by Sheikh Geylani is consistent with the Koran. he blinded him. I was thinking of the story of Abraham (P) as a tale told by the Koran to strengthen people’s belief. Fire never burns. who spit in the eye of a man to cure him. (We said. The power of the master is categorized as Karama.

Be thou cool and (a means of) safely for Abraham”). These powers are limitless and setting a limit for them is thinking humble of the power of God. Sheikh Geylani said: "Objects by themselves cannot do the act. I met an old mystic named Aref. who was thrown into the fire by pagans. Mystics believe that miracles of the prophets and Karama of the votaries are based on the power endowed to them by God." For example. and God brought the fire to a standstill for him. instead. “The fire was not hot! It was so cold that I was shivering to death while I was in it. (36:82)” Grand deceased master of mysticism. before a crowd of over 300 people. Like the fake prophet Mosayleme. I interviewed this man to see how he felt when he was in the fire. I had to push the flames under my armpits to feel some warmth!” Expressions of this man about the fire are completely consistent with the Koran’s which states that God ordered the fire to be cold and healthy to Abraham. sword does not cut by itself. Ihan’a (offence): An act happens for a corrupted person to refute his claims. then Abraham would have been frozen to death. He said.

With such God based spiritual power supporting you. but only by giving a pledge to the master in a ten minute operation. in order to convince and guide people to the right way of virtue. God. Every person can do these acts. and the world of the supernatural. On the contrary. such acts are a means not an end. The power of supernatural acts is a gift given by the master to his disciples for assuring them of the validity of his claim. without any special preparations. Therefore. According to the present master. which will be explained later. associate these supernatural things with magic and devilish acts. Early on the path I felt uncomfortable in my first experience with supernatural acts because they seemed cruel and frightening. called Bay’a. Such an approach is in dramatic contrast to only preaching to people as a means of bringing them to God. to reevaluate their beliefs about God. . and were mostly dealing with self-induced injuries to the human body. Supernatural acts have no relationship to devilish acts. It should be mentioned that disciples are not obligated to do such practices and in the path toward God.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 43 The Supernatural Acts of Mysticism There are incredible acts done by mystics categorized as Ma’aona. are carried out by ordinary people. These acts are very different from magic and as explained. it is not permissible for the disciples to do such practices for other reasons. The people who do these acts prove their righteousness by risking their lives and showing that there is a spiritual power controlling all these unusual events. they are used to keep people away from evil. which are done by common people who receive such incredible ability through the master. I noticed that there was no true mutilation of the body and that these acts work effectively and challenge people who have lost their faith. by strengthening their belief and bringing them closer to God. Such supernatural acts are not that dissimilar to the healing work of Jesus. the supernatural events done by his disciples are an extension of the Miracles of the Prophet Muhammad (P) to show the ability and the oneness of God and thus to guide those unbelievers to the road of faith and devotion. After some time. Some people. All of these acts are done through the spiritual support and intervention of the master based upon ancient spiritual principles which operate differently from psychological mechanisms or magical effects. fire does not burn you and a knife cut does . as a way to get people to reevaluate their belief systems about healing. The power of doing supernatural acts is transferred to the disciple. unfamiliar with mysticism.

Sharp blades are also swallowed by ordinary disciples. insecurity. wherever and whenever it seems needed. which allows the disciple the capability of doing these acts. My first experience with the supernatural acts of mysticism was at the time that I was eleven years old. It also shows that our belief system about the body and our world operates along different principles than we used to believe. Sometimes a lamp is used to show the passage of an electric current from the body. • Swallowing fire emitted form a source of fire or holding a highly heated iron piece by heads or teeth. and uncertainty regarding the outcomes. when you become sure about the logic behind these acts and the divine science that underlies them. • Exposing of the hand.

One day Hasan informed me that the night before. and other animals during demonstrations is a true ability of Kasnazani mystics. Immunity to the bite of a poisonous snake. he was put in an ambulance.

Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power

Several years after the episode of the doomed driver, I myself joined mysticism through a young caliph, who was a relative of one of my personnel. At that time, I was director of our family shipyard in the city of Babolsar in the north of Iran. Contrary to my perception, joining mysticism was not difficult. I made my repentance, or Bay’a, in twenty minutes. Then made an ablution, which is something similar to an ordinary shower, but in a specified manner. After ablution, I did an inauguration prayer, similar to the ordinary Muslim Morning Prayer, fasted for three days and started the remembrances, words from the Koran which are said in a repeated manner,

Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power

47

similar to an Indian mantra. Remembrances are some of the most important parts of mysticism and have mysterious effects purifying disciple’s heart and providing metaphysical abilities. Contrary to most of the mystical schools, Islamic mysticism has defined and documented rules and is not hard to follow. Every day it has five prayer rituals (ordinary Islamic Prayer); each taking only 5 to 10 minutes. It also has daily remembrances, starting from a minimum of 30 minutes per day, up to any spare time that one can spend. Before joining mysticism, in spite of my amazing experiences, I was not sure that the repentance and related instructions could lead to any immediate result. Contrary to this idea, even during the act of repentance (Bay'a), I received a warm feeling in my heart, similar to the feeling of pain in the final stages of healing under the influence of a strong tranquilizer. Another expression for this is to consider your heart as an old pot which is in the process of being cleaned of many layers of burned food with a strong dishwashing agent. During the act of Bay’a, an invisible connection is made between master and disciple, through the caliph. In this process the caliph is acting as a connecting wire, which leads the electricity (the divine light) from an electrical source (master) to a consuming unit (disciple). I have given Bay’a to many people who have become unconscious under its effect. In one instance, I was giving Bay’a to a lady who had a Ph.D. in philosophy. This woman did not believe in mysticism, but for the sake of curiosity took the Bay’a. In a short while, she became unconsciousness and, similar to a tranquilized person, started to explain what was around her of divine souls and angels of mercy. Going back to the previous subject, several days after me, my wife also made the pledge through the same caliph and we worked together in our spare time to promote our mystical capabilities. After several months of practice, since the young caliph who gave us the pledge was not experienced, I invited an expert mystic named Khalid from another city in the west of Iran to come to advance our training. Khalid brought some of his young disciples with him. They performed supernatural acts during the ceremonies to which we invited our friends. They stood in circle and after some recitation which was accompanied by tambourine, started their acts. In their first operation, in front of more than sixty visitors, Khalid inserted a long poke of half an inch diameter, from inside the mouth, into the lower jaw of a young boy and pushed it out from a point close to the throat. After pulling out, no blood was observed and there was no sign of pain. After that, a young disciple grabbed two knives, stuck out his tongue, and continuously cut his tongue with the knives. Suddenly my elder son Babak, who was a whiz-kid and was studying in an

48

Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power

exceptional student’s school went to Khalid and asked him for permission to do a similar act. I was shocked! Babak was a conservative person and as a child was afraid of going to a physician, having a phobia of injection. Khalid looked at me for my opinion; I nodded my head as approval. I didn’t know why I did this. I think Babak and I were both mesmerized! Khalid handed two daggers to Babak, and the same as the young disciple, he started to cut his tongue with knives. My wife and I were scared to death. I obviously noticed that every time the knife was slicing his tongue, a cut became apparent. After several times doing this, blood began to run from his tongue,. Khalid took the daggers from his hands. I went to him and desperately asked him to show me his tongue. What I saw was unbelievable. There were no scars or sign of cutting detectable! You cannot imagine my mixed feelings, both happy because my son was not hurt, and unhappy because what I had witnessed shook the very foundations of my scientific view of the world. I felt lost like someone desperately trying to find a normal scientific explanation for all of this, and save my faith in traditional Western science which has worked so well for me all of my life. Another strange thing associated with my son’s act was that when they took snap shots and video of him, the image became dark and nothing was observable. Blackening of pictures happened for two more instances during that day and the following day.

This time Khalid did not ask for my approval, and did it while my wife and I were watching the scene fearfully. After removing the knife from his head, I went to my son and asked him if he was ok. He said, “I felt no pain. After a brief whistle sound in my ears, I just could hear the hammering sound of the dagger”. After Babak, my second son Ali asked for my permission to do similar acts. I had no option but to agree. After hammering the dagger and removing it, just like Babak, he reported hearing the strange sound of a whistle and then just the hammering sound, without any pain.

The rest is all Him. Rumi explains: Love came. and Barakah have similar meanings. and now I am in bad repute How can a secret remain veiled. filled with an olive oil (used as fuel in ancient times). even if the flame does not touch it. This fuel is so flammable that it may burn.” (24:35) According to mysticism. you can pass all the boundaries of space and time (Einstein’s Relativity Theory) and can reach a state of unity with God and all His creations. Rumi describes this phenomenon with the following magnificent wording (previously described in the chapter of “Islamic Mysticism): So that I jumped out of days and nights. neither eastern nor western.. bring forth the cup and put it to my lips Path of love seemed easy at first. I followed my own path of love. These are some of Hafiz writings about this: O beautiful wine-bearer. which is not from the earth (neither eastern nor western). the blood in my veins and body dried up.

Becoming blind to the divine light leads people to chase after mirages instead of water. hatred. of the Koran refers to people who do not have light (love) as those who go after a mirage. lies. For in that side all the people are one. Therefore. someone who does not have this light needs to gain it. because they have blocked their hearts to the light with veils of sins.” (24:40) Hafiz puts the above verse into the following words: . fearfulness and depression some people have is due to their lack of Barakah or divine light. Verse 39 of chapter. anxiety.. people without Barakah are referred to as those who are lost in a stormy sea in the darkness.

. Sinful talk and speeches which promote lying. God explicitly states that He is the only real source of divine light (love or Barakah). On the other hand. Practicing these acts provides mental calmness and imbues the heart with a sense of love and affection. Preaching and inviting people to righteousness. One way to recognize Barakahless people is through mystical training. This type of darkness is different from skin’s normal color and is hard to describe. those who go lightly along the shore? In the above verse. As with a piece of steel that gets magnetized by being exposed to a magnet. which needs training to identify. approaching people without Barakah and staying in Barkatless places. if you expose yourself (physically or mentally) to Barakahful people and socialize with them. and all other sources are nothing but a mirage. spoils your Barakah. With this statement we go back to the rules of Barakah. Wording and sound are other sources of Barakah. With barakahful people there is a quality of clearness and shine of the skin. or conspiracy and any wording which drives people away from righteousness. and penetrative appearance of their eyes. fasting. recitations. dull and vague eyes and their faces are matte and dark.

One way of generating Barakah is through our acts. you absorb Barakah. produce Barakah. and also by the luminance and shine of their faces. and music which arouses a sense of divine love. Ordinary people may also detect Barakahful people through the wetness. Some acts generate Barakah and others spoil it. the terrifying whirlpool. shine. or stay in Barakahful places. you could compare it with a sort of electromagnetic energy.

If you take part in a collective Barakahfull act. Similar to magnetic energy. one light will spread over him or her. If two people do the act simultaneously. Collective acts are amplifiers of Barakah. for them has God prepared forgiveness and great reward” (33:35). when one person is praying or making a Barakahful act.70 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power Leading mystics usually avoid Barakahless people (except for guidance). and fear. each of them will receive two lights. you will get amplified Barakah. Partnership in life or business with Barakahless people is not recommended and may lead to undesired results. There is an efficient method in mysticism for healing such a place by arranging a collective remembrance ceremony in it. and can be reversed by acts such as praying and reciting remembrances. It may have occurred to you who have moved to a new place and have become unfortunate and had symptoms of depression. which needs light to grow and thrive. These are indications of the place being Barakahless. If compelled to shake hands with them. And in another verse: “O you who believe! When the call is made for prayer on Friday (the day of assembly). Places where sinful acts happen become Barakahless. and collective remembrances are of the most ‘Barakah generating’ rituals. In this ceremony mystics gather in circle and recite remembrances as will be explained later. if you know” (62:9). such as sinful parties. for several hours they sense a bad smell on their hand. that is better for you.

Barakah can be stored in places and objects. one due to his. In the same way. It is said in the Koran: “For men and women who engage much in God’s remembrance. anxiety. if you take part in collective Barakahless acts.

Prophet Muhammad (P) said: “If you pass by the meadows of Heaven, enjoy yourself “. Followers asked: “What is the meadows of Heaven? “ The Prophet answered: “It is the session of remembrance”. Tekyas (similar to a mosque in which mystics do their rituals), mosques, churches, etc., due to collective ceremonies are Barakahful places. In Islamic faith, due to the amplifying property of collective acts, collective prayer and the collective pilgrimage of Hajj are strongly emphasized. Hajj is the largest pilgrimage in the world. There millions of Muslims gather in Mecca and worship God, which has an unbelievably high Barakah amplification for the attendee. Food is another source of Barakah transfer. As with athletes who watch calories, concerned mystics also watch the Barakah of their food. They only eat Halal food The general idea of Halal food forbids pork and all its products, animals improperly slaughtered, alcoholic drinks including all forms of intoxicants, carnivorous animals, birds of prey and any food contaminated with any of these products. Mystics do not eat at unfamiliar places or where they are not sure of the source of attainment of the food, which may be provided by dirty money, gained by theft, deceit, or bribery. They do not eat food which has been stored in Barakahless places. In advanced training, they do not consume food which is touched or cooked by Barakahless and sinful people. At this level, the mystic can obviously detect Barakah of the food. Barakahless foods smell bad to him. A leading mystic friend of mine claimed that his eye had become foolish when he had cataract laser surgery! Recall the description presented in the chapter of this book on ‘Islamic Mysticism’ regarding the contemplation of your mystical body as a hypothetical cone. In this chapter we will improve the previous description, by imagining your mystical body as a balloon, with its opening placed on the surface of a table; the ‘materialistic plane’. This is a hypothetical plane, in which materialistic senses work and it is only within this plane that you can see, hear, taste, or feel. It is from this plane that you would be able to inflate your balloon. What inflates the figurative balloon is not air, but Barakah. You can expand the balloon by providing Barakah and can puncture it by sins. The size of this balloon during life and afterwards is the yardstick for evaluation of a human before God. Therefore, mending this balloon and inflating it is to

72

Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power

be considered the most important duty of a human during life. All the divine religions and creeds through their training and rituals have described this duty. Mysticism, through its divine training has an effective method for mending this balloon which is called repentance or Bay’a. Utilizing Bay’a, the punctured balloons get repaired and re-inflated by Barakah, proportional to their damage. The more damaged balloons get more inflated, since they are more prone to leakage. The following verse of the Koran supports this theory. "Except him who repents and believes and does a good deed; so these are they of whom God changes the evil deeds to good ones; and God is Forgiving, Merciful” (25:70). It is stated here that all sins of people who repent are converted to good deeds. Therefore, if people who are extremely sinful repent, preserve their Barakah, and do not backslide , they will become righteous persons. This is the reason a large number of saints and virtuous people in history have actually had sinful pasts. For a sinful person, maintaining repentance is more difficult than that of an ordinary person. For example, one who is addicted to alcohol, narcotics or adultery needs more effort and zeal to maintain repentance than an ordinary person. Unfortunate people, who suffer Barakah deficiency, can repent and make the Bay’a, to convert to a positive person. The more unlucky they were, the more fortunate they will become. In mystical training, repentance or Bay’a is considered to be the most important step. There are two phenomena occurring simultaneously during this act. One phenomenon is the act of repentance, in which the balloon of the disciple gets mended and proportionally filled with Barakah. The second phenomenon, which is of more importance, is generating a mystical bond or connection between disciple and master. This is the essence of mysticism and is analogous to a hose connection between the balloon of the disciple and the balloon of the master. The master controls the flow of Barakah to the disciple’s balloon. A more diligent disciple will get more Barakah. Since the size of the master’s balloon compared to the disciple’s is similar to a mountain compared to a small rock, a simple glance from the master will improve the disciple as much as years of self- endeavor.

The Barakah which passes from master to disciple is proportional to the heart’s desire or attraction of the heart of the disciple and the disciple’s efforts in observing the master’s commands. Some commands which are important in generating desire or attraction of the heart are as follows: • Fasting is a unique moral and spiritual characteristic of Islam. It means to abstain completely from food, drink, sexual intercourse and smoking, before the break of the dawn till sunset. Ordinary Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year. Some mystics take two extra days of voluntary fasting on Monday and Thursday of each week during the rest of the year beyond Ramadan. By fasting the desire for eating and drinking, etc., is suppressed. This will cause the attraction of Barakah to the heart, flowing from master to the disciple. Donating what you love. When you give away what you love in your heart, creates a Barakah attraction to your heart. It is expressed in the Koran as, ”By no means shall you attain to righteousness until you spend (benevolently) out of what you love; and whatever thing you spend, Allah surely knows it.” (3:92) Constant battling your ego or lower self. If you fill your heart with whatever your ego wishes, there won’t be any attraction of Barakah. In order to achieve the required ability to master your ego and overcome mood issues, at the primary stages of mysticism, you have to battle with your ego or lower self constantly. This is the true meaning of the concept of peaceful Jihad (- 23:1-11). “The Believeres must win through those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex except with those joined to them in the marriage bond…” 23:1-6) “Those who faithfully observe their trusts and covenants and who guard their prayers- their will be the heirs who will inherit Paradise; they will dwell therein (forever)” (23:811). For example, on a hot day, if you are yearning for a cold drink, have a glass of warm- water; if a fruit cake is beckoning you at a party, have a cup of bitter coffee instead. In addition to mystical improvements, these practices have numerous indirect benefits, such as treating narcotic addictions, obesity, managing blood sugar, and other undesired habits.

Becoming emotionally invloved with a Barakahless person is another way of losing Barakah. For example, a love relationship between a male and female causes a build up of heart desire or attraction between the two.

This was the reason that God ordered Abraham (P) to kill his only son Isaac (P). Staring into the eyes of wicked people can result in a rapid discharge of Barakah. and not to get enticed by wicked people. If the man is sinful and wicked. you can imagine how much Barakah a woman will lose at a party. no matter how hard they work. especially the master of mysticism. and actions. in mysticism. Eyeing is a common source of loss of Barakah. try to exhaust their heart of everything but God. the love of Barkahless people (even for objects) will spoil one’s Barakah and cause harm to it (in other words. Most cultures support this idea. who reach a profound mutual love relation with God. On the other hand. his feeling toward the woman will deplete the Barkah of the woman. and looking into the eyes of Barakahful people will give you a jump in Barakah level. with the notion of Murphy’s Law’ which states: “. in Islam.” It means that if you love a costly carpet. remain Barakahless.74 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power In the metaphysical domain.dangerous if one becomes emotionally obsessed with another person to the exclusion of God in their hearts. insecure. If the man is at a higher level of Barakah. whereas according to the Islamic tradition the sacrificed was Ishmael. sad and fearful the day after such a party. Instead they should seek the attraction of a votary and righteous person. To prevent this. if by provocative dress and seductive acts. this act is similar to making a hose-like connection between the mystical balloons of man and woman. In addition. From this analogy. Since having feelings for Barkahless people reduces the Barakah level. but this can be. the bread will fall on it on the buttered side.Jews and Christians say that the sacrificed was Isaac. she attracts a lot of attention and desire from lustful or Barakahless people. Usually those who stare at others. because love of Isaac was competing with love of God in the heart of Abraham. This is the reason why many people feel depressed. so as not to arouse sexual feelings. make one unlucky). mouth. ears. Leading mystics. the Barakah of the man will flow down to the woman. with a punctured or torn balloon. . being loved by a righteous person is fortunate and causes luckiness and prosperity.The chance of the bread falling with the buttered side down on a carpet is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet. They believe that God is zealous and cannot see anything compete with Him in the heart of His beloved. dressing and behavior of both men and women should follow specific standards. trainees are asked to watch their eyes.

while I have little but am keeping it in my heart”. consumed one and donated the other. sinful and Barakahless people are supposed to be unfortunate. These people are the most miserable and unblessed. some creeds prescribe that followers isolate themselvers from wealth and spouses and retreat to deserted places. due to His mercy makes a small ditch in the path to stop the car. People who get undesirable results from their sinful acts are in a better situation than individuals who have fortunate outcomse because the former are not completely out of God’s favor and still have some chance of salvation. The tire breaks and the car stops. An example of the above two cases: Consider a thoughtless person. the votary man replied: “when you go back to my friend. the man wept severely and said: “My friend said the truth. but there are some sinful and wicked people who get fruitful results from their acts and look prosperous and thriving to common people. This time. a bigger ditch appears as . he has too much wealth but has removed it from his heart and is keeping it in his hands. He changes the tire and without examining the road to see the danger ahead. God.Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power 75 In order to avoid this. Getting back to the previous argument. The disciple arrived at the city and searched for the pious man’s friend. who was traveling to another city. driving recklessly down a slope leading to a dreadful valley. Once he told one of his disciples. The following story describes this: There was a pious man who was living simply and getting his food from the sea. When he went back to the pious man and told him about his friend’s reply. Islamic mysticism believes that you should be rich and affluent. The driver gets out of the car and blames God and his destiny for being so unlucky. ask him why he is so preoccupied with life and why he doesn’t stop his whims and needs” The disciple found this quite amazing. gets in the car and speeds up again. When he asked for the advice. Islamic mysticism completely disagrees with this idea and has methods to overcome this problem. Every day he caught two fish. but your wealth should be in your hands instead of your heart. He found him in a very luxurious dress and place surrounded by servants. according to the Koran and their success is transient and superficial. to give his greetings to his friend who was a righteous person and ask him for advice.

Mysticism in Islam is also a comprehensive bridge to other religious and spiritual traditions. There is also no renunciation of life’s pleasures. Contrary to many mystical traditions that might deal with intriguing manuscripts or complicated and exhausting rites and traditions. As it is emphasized in the Koran: “Follow him who does not ask you for reward. and they are the followers of the right course. a straight way (1:6) to Barakah (blessings/Grace). but most men do not know” (34:28). but as a mercy for all creatures” (21:107).”We sent thee not. but is a practical path for individuals and society that does not prescribe isolation from life or family (57:27). as well as scholars of religious and esoteric studies and others following spiritual paths.com/Muslim_Leaders. but only on the basis of one’s righteousness.

They continued on this course until Imam Ali. however. Kasnazani mysticism is not a religious sect or political movement. such as Remembrances and prayer. it does not allow the disciple to have alternatives in the choice of fundamental instructions. It is geared to the general population with ordinary capabilities and since Islamic mysticism is claimed to be the shortest path to God. Contrary to some new schools of thought. It contained many religious devotees who clung to the Koran and took the Prophet Muhammad (P) as their model in spirituality. Later. between the Remembrance in Islamic mysticism and the others is that Islamic Remembrances are not unique or secret. . and pious companions.

After Imam Ali. One difference. It is the practical and spiritual application of the Koranic text. his household.78 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power It should be noted that the mystical traditions of Islam were not influenced by philosophy. Islamic mysticism is based on drawing close to the divine and supernatural power of God following the spiritual guidance of the Koran. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Geylani. Mysticism was the original foundation of Islamic law and Abrahamic religions with its worship of one God (monotheism) and opposition to any form of idolatry. He established a school which was unique in his time and enjoyed very wide fame. Similar to other Abrahamian schools. Sheikh Abdul Karim Kasnazan (Kasnazan is an Arabic–Kurdish name that means “the way of secret that is known to no one”) became a center of mysticism. such as Remembrances (called mantra in the aforementioned schools). Kasnazani is one of the most prominent schools of mysticism in the world. but had origins from the Holy Koran and the course of the prophet Muhammad (P). through which many people from distant parts of the world found guidance. The first school of Islamic mysticism appeared in the city of Medina. There are some common features between Islamic mysticism with some Hindu or Buddhist schools. traces his origin back to the Prophet Muhammad (P). guiding a large number of people to the way of righteousness.

It is advised to complete each of the first and second remembrances in a period of less than 20 days (an average of .

Muslims usually fast during the entire month of Ramadan. followed by 17 additional Remembrances. Those who are not aware of mysticism may think that performing Remambrances and other instructions for a mystic in general is “full of hardships”. in the way explained here. This remembrance is to be repeated one hundred thousand times. similar to the Dawn Prayer (refer to Islamic sites). and some prohibitions. the ninth month of the Islamic year.

In order to become a mystic.Take Bay’a or pledge. one (Muslim or non-Muslim) can take the following steps: 1.Perform Ghusl. the second Remembrance (Allah) should be started. It causes a direct contact or link between the worshipper and God. Contact or link prayer is the name for the obligatory prayers which are performed five times daily by Muslims. It is said in the Koran: “… no burden do We place on any soul but that which it can bear …” (6:152) We will describe repentance and Remembrances in further detail. the mystic should start the first of nineteen continuous Remembrances. such as daily prayer.5000 repetitions every day. fasting. as follows: “There is no Lord but Allah”.Start the Remembrances After performing the contact prayer.

Since mysticism is the way which leads to God. Islamic mysticism is equipped with an efficient method. Bay’a with the present master is Bay’a or a pledge with the Prophet. . It is for men. Shaking the hand means the confession and witness of Muhammad's prophecy. God considers the Bay'a with the prophet as Bay’a with Him. who is spiritually connected to the chain of masters who preceded him. He will grant him a mighty reward”(48:10). by this light can be turned on with the least amount of effort. It is a simple operation where a man who wants to follow the pledge. if they repent and do not back-slide. it conveys many spiritual secrets. Prophet Muhammad (P) says: “who died while having no Bay'a. a Caliph. and whoever fulfills what he has covenanted with Allah. According to the Koran. all their sins are converted to good deeds. anyone who has insight should take the Bay'a from the master who is the prophet's heir and acts as his representative. his death is like that of the pre-Islamic people”. Repentance is a spark that enlightens peoples’ hearts by the will of God and his blessings. Bay’a. and the promise through hands to cling to the rules of Islam. anyone who is extremely sinful will become a righteous person.. then.80 Step by Step Toward Supernatural Healing Power Repentance or Bay’a Repentance entails a refrain from committing bad deeds that violate God’s will. leading to the Prophet Muhammad (P).

No human is free from the Devil’s temptations or illusions. Therefore. Although Bay’a appears simple. the most important duty of a master is to light the Divine Love inside the disciple’s heart. It is described as being a spiritual touch through which the disciple’s soul is connected to that of the master of mysticism. repentance is obligatory for all people and many chapters of the Koran refer to this obligation. Bay’a happened at the time of the prophet of Islam and after he was dead. instead of the hand. he breaks it only to the injury of his own soul. Therefore. Anyone who wants to follow the course of mysticism must take Bay’a. she holds the beads of the Caliph. Bay'a is not restricted to men.

Therefore. but he who does not remember his God is like the dead”. In the preliminary stages of mysticism. It is considered to be a sword in the hands of the disciple for fighting the enemies of the jinni and the man. one is Remembrance by tongue (speech) and the other Remembrance by heart. is himself dead.

Prophet Muhammad (P) said: “these hearts are to be rusted. states that stiff hearts may not be smashed but by the force of collective Remembrance. one of the greatest Islamic mystical thinkers. Remembrance is moved from the tongue to the heart when the mystic repeats with enjoyment till it becomes a warm cure to the heart. both by heart and speech. It entails glorification of God and repetition of His name with great concentration. By Remembrance of God hearts are revitalized.
