Superiority of Dhikr (remembrance) and becoming close to AIHlh by way of righteous deeds and good faith in Him
50) Narrated Abu Huraira :The Prophet said: Allah says: I am in accordance with the thoughts of My slave about Me; and I am with him, when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me in his heart, I also remember him in My heart. If he remembers Me in a group, I remember him in a better group (i.e. angels). If he draws near Me by the span of a palm, I draw near him by a cubit. If he draws near Me by a cubit, I draw near him by the space covered by two hands. If he walks towards Me, I go to him running.
