Islam and telepathy

Assalamualaikum brother, What does Islam have to say about mental telepathy? Is it true? Can you tell me more about it?

Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

There is nothing on telepathy on the Quran. I have also not seen any hadiths that mention it. I have, however, heard stories of Sufi sheikhs who were sometimes able to communicate telepathically with people close to them. It is said that it was a miracle granted to them for their extreme piety.
