One must realize that the abundance of wonders is not the sign or evidence of the superiority of the saint-hood because saint-hood in fact is the name of nearness to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. The more a person possesses the Divine nearness; the higher will be his rank of his sainthood.
The companions رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم were bestowed with exclusive attributes by virtue of the Prophet’s company. This is why the nearness and proximity possessed by these holy men in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ cannot be availed by other Awliya Kiraam رَحِمَـهُـمُ الـلّٰـهُ الـسَّلَام. Although the events of wonders related to the Prophet’s companions are less in number yet their rank of Wilayat is higher than that of all other Awliya Kiraam رَحِمَـهُـمُ الـلّٰـهُ الـسَّلَام.
