Tafsir

A group of followers of the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him asked him, 'Is our Lord nearby so that we should talk to Him secretly, or is He far away, so that we should call out to him?', and the following was revealed: And when My servants question you concerning Me - I am near, to them in My knowledge, and he informed them of this; I answer the call of the caller, by granting him his request, when he calls to Me; so let them respond to Me, My call to them to be obedient, and let them believe, [let them] persevere in faith, in Me that they might go aright, [that] they [might] become guided.
