"...enamored by supernatural displays..." - From the Malfoozat of Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thanwi saheb Rahmatullahi 'Alayh

"People who are much enamored by supernatural displays, will be with Dajjal in greater numbers. I have heard this from my seniors. I have also heard that Dajjal will have the appearance of a majzoob. (A majzoob is a saint whose mind appears to be deranged as a result of his total engrossment with Allah's remembrance and love.)

This indicates that haal (a spiritual state) is not sufficient. The vital need (for rectitude) is obedience to the sunnah. those people who's attention is focused only on spiritual/supernatural states while not accepting deen as a requisite for tasawwuf, will find it very difficult to be saved from the traps of Dajjal. Dajjal will do everything, but he will not be able to act in accordance with the sunnah. Only the followers of the sunnah will be safe from Dajjal's trap."
