Remembering Allah, The Exalted.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ


Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger [may peace be upon him] as saying that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, thus stated: I am near to the thought of My servant as he thinks about Me, and I am with him as he remembers Me. And if he remembers Me in his heart, I also remember him in My Heart, and if he remembers Me in assembly, I remember him in assembly better than his (remembrance), and if he draws near Me by the span of a palm, I draw near him by the cubit, and if he draws near Me by the cubit I draw near him by the space (covered by) two hands. And if he walks toward Me, I rush towards him;” Sahih Muslim, Kitab Al-Dhikr.
