Learning through Master Sages from Past Centuries- A Form of Telepathy
Fatima Az Zahra Langhi states in her article, ‘Ajamī Mysteries of Sitt ‘Ajam Bint al-Nafīs,” “Sitt ‘Ajam, a Sufi woman living in the thirteenth century, tells us in her work that she had a vision in which Muhyī al-dīn Ibn ‘Arabī appeared to her, asking her to write a commentary on one of his earliest works, Mashāhid al-asrār al-qudsiyya wa matāli’ al-anwār al-ilāhiyya (The Witnessing of the Holy Mysteries and the Rising of the Divine Lights). This is reminiscent of Ibn Arabī’s own meetings with prophets, saints and spiritual masters in the Imaginal World, in which he had conversations discussing certain Sufi themes with masters such as al-Hallāj (d.922), Abū Madyan (d.1198), Dhu’l-Nūn al-Misrī (d.861), Sahl al-Tustarī (d.896), etc. ” Likewise, head of the Naqshbandi Sufii Order, Shah Naqshband is said to have learnt directly from Spiritual Master Abdul Khaliq Al Gujadawani who preceded the former by a few centuries. This form of learning is a legacy which continues to be an active force in the process of spiritual dissemination, also known as Owaisi Transmission. Another example we have is the case of John of God, who has healed thousands and states it is ‘not him’ but rather GreatOnes of the past working through him.
