Attention of Sheikh/Pir
The spiritual resolve of the Pir/sheikh when starts reflecting on the heart/mindof his devotees/murid, then take place an inner transformation into mind’s recesses of the murid. By this the Sheikh transmits his inspiration to the heart of the murid. This is a power, spiritual power, and called tassarraf/power in sufi language.
Proof of focus/tawwajjo from quran/hadith
It was the focus of his spiritual power that reformed the children of Hazrat Yaqub (A.S).
(for understanding, please see Verse 9 of Surah Yusaf).
Translation: Your father’s focus/tawwajjo would be towards you, and after that you will become good doers. Here the Arabic word Saliheen denotes both worlds temporal and spiritual ones.
SURAH AL INFAAL, VERSE 12:
Remember, when your Rabb commanded the angels, that “I, Allah, am with you”; so keep the faithful steadfast, raise their resolve: the only means of raising the resolve and keeping the faithful steadfast was to empower hearts of theirs so that they could face the non-believers and stand the ground. This process can also be called as one of the types of Focus/Tawwajjo.
Similarly of the first Revelation the clasping of the Holy Prophet (SLM) by Angel Jibreel (A.S) proves spiritual power of Focus and Resolve, as the Holy Prophet (SLM) says: (See Bukhari Sharif page 2 vol 1)
