According to the book Tadkiratul Awliya, someone asked Bayazid Bistami about the Arsh, he said “I am the Arsh (Throne of Allah)”, similarly, he said “I am the Kursi (Footstool of Allah)”, and he said “I am the Qalam (Pen of Allah)”, and then someone asked about Abraham and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam), upon which Bayazid Bistami said: “I am him as well”
