Sufi saints or Wali (Arabic: ولي‎, plural ʾawliyāʾ أولياء) played an instrumental role in spreading Islam throughout the world.[1] In the traditional Islamic view, a saint is portrayed as someone "marked by [special] divine favor ... [and] holiness", and who is specifically "chosen by God and endowed with exceptional gifts, such as the ability to work miracles."[2]
