God is Omnipresent (having the ability to be everywhere at once); therefore, sessions by phone or Skype are equally as effective as sessions that are performed in the presence of the healer.
Support and healing for a variety of illnesses and difficulties can be obtained through the Omnipotence (Absolute Power) of God. Healers in the Sufi Way, seek to honor and surrender to Allah's Omnipotence, by purifying themselves. In doing so they seek to reflect the vibrational frequencies of the Spirit of god (i.e., the qualities of God such as grace, strength, mercy, compassion, knowledge, etc.)
As the client turns to Allah with openness and receptivity, the transmission of this frequency then becomes the gift or spiritual medicine that is needed for healing to occur. For example, healing may occur on one or more levels, such as healing within the physical body, heart, soul, and / or the deeper secret places within the individual.
The healing may include prayers, such as those offered by the Holy prophets, (may peace and blessings be upon them); often, this may also include the transmission of one or more of God's qualities (99 Qualities of Allah).
Nevertheless, Allah is he Divine Healer (ash-Shafi); He is all Knowing (al-Alim); therefore, it is Allah who determines whether or not healing will transpire; for example, healing may occur in a moment or over several sessions. When physical healing does not occur, Allah may send insights, or help us deal with our challenges and limitations in a new way (i.e., such as developing mercy or compassion for something we cannot change about ourselves.
