The Book Pertaining to the Remembrance of Allah, Supplication, Repentance and Seeking Forgiveness

كتاب الذكر والدعاء والتوبة والاستغفار

(1) Chapter: Encouragement To Remember Allah, Exalted is He
(1) باب الْحَثِّ عَلَى ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) 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 towards Me, I rush towards him.

None of you should say to Allah (like this): O Allah, grant me mercy, if thou so likest.
