About Saints and Sainthood
"Alaa inna awliya-ullahi laa khawfan 'alayhim wa laa hum yahzanoon"
"Nay they are the Friends of God, no fear shall come upon them neither shall they grieve."
See the lives of the Saints in Kashf al-Mahjub by Imam Ali al-Hujwiri
"My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him."
The Miracles of Saints
God Himself said:
There are different perspectives from which to view the saints of God. One is from the esoteric viewpoint, in which case you would understand technically who they are. This is the manner followed by many scholars of religion, and the Islamic ones have written numerous books and volumes of information on the subject. The other perspective is that of the Sufis, the Mystical Path of Saints, who rather than discussing saints and sainthood, sought after it by seeking out living saints and sticking to them like glue. That is the Sufi Path, often labelled by the esoteric scholars as too unorthodox to be "appropriate."
