Some people are more inclined to and have the innate capacity for supernormal phenomena. For example a woman medium called Madame Gibson had predicted the partition of India in 1947 and the murder of John Kennedy. Likewise. Fenni Bey from Ordu. Turkey who fought at the front of Madina during the First World War relates:
We were under siege in Medina. I was unable to communicate with my family in Istanbul. One night in a dream I saw fire and smoke in my house. In the morning I sent for a private of mine who was a medium. I told him to go into a trance and traveling to my house 'I told him where it was situated' describe to me what he saw. He did what I told him and began to describe: "I have reached the house. I have knocked on the door and an old woman in a head-scarf has come out with a child in her arms." I told the private to ask the woman if there was anything wrong in the house? He related to me: "She says your wife died yesterday."
Spiritualism is one of the more widespread supernormal practices nowadays. Before further explanation. I should point out that my aim in mentioning such supernormal phenomena is to emphasize that existence is not restricted to matter. Rather as in the case with a book or a piece of writing whose main existence lies in its meaning what is metaphysical or spiritual or immaterial is the essential part of existence; matter is accidental and a changing means for the manifestation of the immaterial. It is true that some great saints like Muhy al-Din ibn al-Arabi are known to have communicated with the spirits of the dead and even of those who had not yet been born- the spirits of all human beings were created long before the first man came to the world and the spirit of each person is breathed into him while he is about a six-month old embryo in his mother's womb- but those who practice spiritualism in the modern world today communicate rather than with the souls of the dead with the unbelieving jinn or satans who appear to them in the form of the dead person with whose soul they wish to communicate. Also mediums who predict future events usually make contact with the jinn from whom they report what they report.
Jinn are a kind of beings who live longer than human beings are active in broader dimensions (realms) of time and space and act much more speedily than human beings and who can see some things which normal people cannot. However they are unable to see the future and we should not believe their predictions even though very rarely these may prove true. Actually it is a known fact that the intelligence services of the US and the Communist Russia competed with each other in making use of supernormal ways of communication like telepathy. As will be explained later in a not too distant future world powers will be using jinn in communication and especially in secret intelligence activities. However it is dangerous to seek to contact and communicate with jinn or satans because they can easily bring the people who contact them under their influence and govern their actions. And as was pointed out above those who practice spiritualism usually communicate with members of the unbelieving party of jinn who appear to them in the form of the dead ones whose souls they are calling.
A friend of mine who is a psychiatrist relates:
I was invited to a practice of necromancy in a house in Samsun (a province in Northern Turkey). The youngest daughter of the family arranged cups and letters on a table. One of the friends present invited the soul of his late grandfather. After several calls a man appeared. When we asked him insistently who he was he answered: 'Satan'. We were greatly astonished. A while later. I asked him why he had come although we had not called him. He wrote on the table with the cups: "So I come!" I asked him whether he believed in God. He wrote "No!" When I asked whether he believed in the Prophet again he wrote. "No!" I began reading to him some passages from a book concerning the existence of God. When I read. "A factory with such and such features points to the engineer who planned and built it" he wrote. "True"; but when I read. "So too the universe with all the planets and particularly the world with all plants and animals in it indicate God" he wrote. "No!" This continued for some time and I began reciting to him from the 'Great Armour' a collection of supplications to God. While I was reciting the cups were moving on the table. Meantime he wrote: "Give up that nonsense!" When I continued to recite he could not endure listening and disappeared.
Like such supernormal experiences observations of some doctors at the time of death also prove the existence of the spirit and spirit beings. What Bedri Ruhselman reports in The Spirit and the Universe from a doctor is in complete agreement with the observations of a group of doctors from Holland which were published in newspapers.
A doctor narrates: 'My wife was ill. When she went into the pangs of death two things resembling two clouds descended into the room and hovered above her head. Meanwhile a form appeared which was connected to my wife on the nape of the neck with a cord and was fluttering. This continued for five hours. In the end the cord broke off and the form the spirit rose away. This was the end of my wife's life.'
