Seeing a Buzurg in Different Places at The Same Time

Q: How is it that people see a buzurg at different places at the same time? Some will see him here, others will see him at the Ka`bah whilst some will see him elsewhere.

A: Did you see any buzurg in this manner? It is impossible. It is his figure that people see. It is related in the book Tahzeeb that it is possible that a kulli tab`ee (natural body) can be present in several places at once through different wujood (existences). By undergoing mujaahadaat (spiritual training) the soul gains dominance over the physical self and this results in the body becoming roohaani (spiritual). Thus, the person seems to be present at various places (at the same time).
