I imagined myself in the tomb of Sheikh Ibn Arabi RA and requesting Ijaaza for reading Hizb Al-Wiqaya regularly and I saw his figure reach out of his tomb and put his hand on my head. I was glad but doubted if it was just my imagination.
Then I imagined myself standing by tomb of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani RA tomb for permission to read Bashair AlKhairat (which I was doing since 2 months). I imagined I saw him sitting in front of me. His generosity was immense, he put a ring on my finger, put a shawl on my shoulders, spit in my mouth 3 times and hugged me with extreme happiness like a grandfather. This was very unexpected behaviour and cannot be my imagination. How do I know if this was just my imagination? What does ring and shawl and spit mean?
They mean blessing and support, and recommendation to adorn your outward manners with the excellence that ought to match these devotions.
Congratulations on visiting them.
