Summary of question
Is it true that some Muslim Gnostics can fly or levitate?
I have heard from a couple of very reliable resources that some Muslim Gnostics can levitate or fly; is this true, and how is this possible? And what would be the benefit of being able to do such a thing, or to gain such a power?
Concise answer

That which you have mentioned is an effect and result of Man’s spiritual strength, sometimes this may come about by acting in accordance with religious laws and legitimate ascetic discipline. This means that; by moving closer to Allah, Man can possess the greatest name of God, and gain existential authority, and hence the ability to influence existences and make all of the beings of the world of elements submit to and adhere to his authoritative spirit. Also, this can sometimes come about by manifesting the jinn, using satanic forces or other means.

Of course we must not be oblivious to the fact that some of these spiritual strengths are not possible through unislamic self-disciplines; and if they may be possible then due to the corruptions which they necessitate, Allah has rendered them unlawful.

In any case, in addition to the fact that moving closer to God is representation of man’s extraordinary spiritual strengths and elevated rank, it also gives man the ability to use these strengths for pure and divine goals in order to help those in need, and by being able to do so in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of amenities, he can be most effective.
