Karāmas of Shaikh Muḥammad al-Muḥammad al-Kasnazan
Like his predecessors, the spiritual blessings of Shaikh Muḥammad al-Muḥammad al‑Kasnazān has manifested itself in numerous karāmas. These include curing medically incurable diseases, such as cancer, and intervening spiritually to rescue people from dangerous and life‑threatening situations. These are a few of these wonders:
- The Shaikhs of Tarīqa Kasnazāniyya have also given permission to their dervishes to perform dangerous feats under the spiritual protection of the Shaikhs. These feats include the insertion of sharp objects, such as skewers, spikes and spits, into various parts of the body. The dervish does not suffer pain, bleeding or infection, and the wounds heal immediately after the object is removed from the body. The dervishes also perform feats that show immunity to fire and venomous snakes. All these feats, which are performed daily, are intended to only be illustrations of the great spiritual powers that Allah has entrusted to the Shaikhs of Tarīqa Kasnazāniyya.
- A poor woman visited one of the khalīfas of Shaikh Muḥammad al-Muḥammad. She complained to him that she had a medical condition in her nose that the doctors insist can only be treated surgically yet she can barely afford to feed herself and her unemployed husband. The khalīfa gave her bayʿa praying that the blessings of Ṭarīqa might help her. A week later the woman came to visit the khalīfa again and was very happy. She said: “I saw the Shaikh in my dream cutting my nose and replacing it with another. When I woke up, I found drops of blood on my nose and on the pillow, and I have no problem in my nose anymore.” The woman went back to her doctor and told him what happened. He took an x-ray of her and found out that the problem she had in her nose had completely gone. The khalīfa asked her if she had seen a photo of the Shaikh and she said no. When the khalīfas showed her the Shaikh’s photo she recognized him as the person who replaced her nose in the dream.
- A family told a khalīfa that they suffer from jinn in their house. The khalīfa offered to give them bayʿa to protect them and remove the jinn from the house. Two days later three members of the family came back, and one of them told the khalīfa that she saw in a dream someone who told her to start reading a particular dhikr. She replied asking why she should take any order from him. He replied: “I am your Shaikh, Muḥammad al-Muḥammad al-Kasnazānī, the Shaikh of the human beings and the jinn.” The khalīfa then showed her three photos of Shaikh Hussien, Shaik ʿAbd al-Karīm, and Shaikh Muḥammad al-Muḥammad . She immediately pointed to Shaikh Muḥammad al-Muḥammad’s photo and identified him the person who visited her in the dream.
