Proof from the Hadith
There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:
Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Allah Most High said: Whoever bears enmity with My friend (Wali), I declare war against him. My slave comes closer to me with no act more beloved to me than the obligatory acts of worship (Fardh) which I have assigned to him and my slave keeps coming closer to me with supererogatory acts of worship (Nafl), so much so that I start loving him. When I make him my beloved, then I become his ears with whom he hears. I become his eyes with which he sees. I become his hand with which he holds and I become his legs with which he walks. If he asks me for something, I surely grant it. If he asks me for protection, I surely grant it. If I want to do something, I don’t hesitate the way I wait before taking the soul of a Momin when does not desire it and I don’t like hurting him. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 6502)
This Hadith shows the great excellence and glory of the Saints. When the power of Allah Most High Himself works in their senses, then they have extraordinary faculties and abilities. They can grasp and help others their hands in ways that others cannot. They can see and listen to things that are too far away for others. They can cover huge distances in the blink of an eye.
