GMT - 3 Hours Ever Thought Of This Hadith?

As-Salaam alaikum,
In a Hadith Qudsi Allah Ta'ala says:--

  "I am as My Servant thinks I am,
    I am with him whenever he remembers Me; if he thinks of Me,
    I think of him; if he mentions Me in a gathering, I mention him
    in a gathering even better than it.

   If he draws near to Me a hand's span, I draw near to him in an arm's length;
   If he draws to Me an arm's length, I draw closer to him by 2 arms length;
   and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running." [Bukhari and Muslim].

This Noble Hadith tells us of the speed at which Allah Ta'ala changes a person's reality as he remembers Him. Because Allah has no need of/to travel, He does not have a body and isn't in creation, when He says "I go to him running", this refers to shaping man's perception of Allah, meaning 'I shape his reality quickly'. The more a person comes to Allah by Remembering Him (through various forms of Zikr and Ibaadat), the faster Allah changes his perception towards good.

In this connection, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: IHSAN (human perfection) is to worship Allah as if you see Him, which is the highest form of worship. And in the Holy Qur'an, we have it that:-

 "He (Allah) is with you, wherever you are" (57:4)

 "And We are nearer to him than his jagular vein" (50:16)..
