Sufi Karāmāt

After a deep study of Tazkia-e-nafs by Amin Ahsan Islahi and Burhan by Javed Aḥmad Ghamidi I am clear about tassawuf. But just want to know the exact nature of the karāmāt because if people get benefit from them then is it not good? What is the difference in the sufi karāmāt and spiritual experiences of yogi meditation?

Does The Prophet Listen To Us?

Allah Almighty says to the Prophet (sws) that he will also leave this world as the previous prophets did. A ḥadīth is very commonly known that Prophet said a Muslim must visit his grave to say asslamaulaikum when he comes for Haj or umrah. If this narrative is authentic, then don't you think it is in contradiction of the verse I have referred to above?

Secondly a firqah amongst Muslim strongly believes in intercession through awliya Allah who are dead and probably their argument is based on what I have written above. I may clarify here that I am not interested in going into any sort of argument with believers in intercession, just want to know the truth:
(1) saying assalamu alaikum to the Prophet (sws) which he listens and

(2) on what basis we can connect the similar listening of assalamu alaikum by awliya Allah?

Can Dead Sufi Saints Hear The Calls Of The Living Devotees?

assalaam o alaykum

My question is that the Sufis claim that they have miracles and they are allowed to hear people after their death. Some people say that even Prophet Muhammad (sws) can hear us. So my question is that does Allāh treat Prophet and Sufis at the same level? What Allāh has allowed for Prophet Muhammad (sws) to do, is that allowed for the Sufis or the pious?

Did Prophet (sws) Have The Knowledge Of The Unseen

I have 2 questions to ask of you.

1. There are people who believe that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had knowledge of the unseen (‘Ilm-e-Ghayb). They say that in addition to revelation (waḥī) Allah used to convey to him (PBUH) through Angel Gabriel (as) information of future for onward communication to people. They (people) claim that to be knowledge of the unseen (‘Ilm-e-Ghayb).
2. These people also insist that one should pray to Allah in the name of pious religious scholars and the divine Messengers especially the Holy Prophet (sws).

Visting Graves Of The Walis And Awliyas

I was listening to one of the scholars in Pakistan. He said that before prophet (sws) died, he went to the tomb / graves of the martyrs of Uhad. He said that this hadith has consensus and is present in reliable ahadith books. The speech was in the context of visiting the graves of Aulia and Martyrs.

My second questions pertains to Prophet Noah and the flood which came as a punishment in Quran for the addresees of Noah (sws). Your point of view says that the flood only came in that specific area where the addresees of Noah (sws) resided. If this is true then there are suppose to be other people/human beings around the globe which might have their decendents. But in one of your views regarding Gog magog, you said that Noah (sws) has three sons and they are from one of them.

The statement gave the impression that the people on the whole world currently are decendents of those three sons. If that is true then that means the whole world was destroyed in Noah (sws) flood and only Noah (sws) and his followers were saved. Kindly shed some light.

Thirdly, kindly tell that where exactly does the people from the decendents of the tribe gog magog residing in current era, to whom we believe that the rule of the world will transfer before the day of judgment. Are these Americans, British or Chinese?
