Drawing closer to Allah (Hadith Qudsi 1)

I love reading and reflecting upon Hadith Qudsi. I thought it might be a good idea to start a series on them. The hadith will be posted in no particular order. The following is one of my favourites.

__________________________________________________________________________________

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah the Almighty said:

I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.

 (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah)
