Note: Hu is the third person absent pronoun i.e. IT or He, in this case applies to the Divine Presence in third person pronoun.

‘Ey Nūr-eh Chashmānam (O the light of my eyes):

When someone loves you, and loving you with passion and verve, follows you at all times and all places and has no other occupation other than being obsessed by your presence. Had this lover had slightest speck of insincerity on his/her love, there would have been gaps of preoccupation away from you, there would have been moments of carelessness and attention to other than you.

Azizam (My dearest love)—may Allah open your eyes wide—it is not the unborn child that helplessly follows the pregnant mother every place she goes, it is the Jazaba (Attracting Force) of the Mahab-bat (Divine Love) within the mother that forces her psychology and physiology to follow the fetus helplessly no matter where it goes! And unless by the punishing torment of an incredible pain the mother shall not cease following her unborn, for the Mahab-bat is the singleton unbreakable link an endowment from Azizat (your Dearest Beloved)! And even after the birth the umbilical cord has to be cut by an external force or the mother still cannot be separated from the child:

2:256 whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the most reliable hand-hold, for sure 'she' (hand-hold) never breaks

فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَى لَا انْفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

Note: The unbreakable link between the slave and Allah i.e. the Mahab-bat (Divine Love) is gendered as female (Lahā, 'Urwati), as the verses of Qur’an are gendered as female and the Kalimat or Divine Word is also gendered as female. There is no linkage between Allah and the slaves except by means of this inexorable female link i.e. even Jesus who was born miraculously free of a father had to have a female mother to allow the link between his existence in this world and Allah!

Araqi (Divine Flash 24)
"The seeking and searching of the Lover is a sample of the beloved’s seeking and searching! Whatever attribute is assigned to the lover, for that matter any and all such attributes of the lover, are originally the attributes of the beloved entrusted to the lover for safekeeping. Yet, there is no sharing of these attributes, since the sharing would cause the discernment of duality."

Fahmidi Nāzaninam? (Can you understand my caressing love?)
فهميدى نازنينم

Behold: From the fetus in the belly of the mother, to the faintest star of the deepest cosmos, to the hand that typed this to the eye that read this, by the ink of the atoms and molecules and living organisms, all and all, the Pen of Love has jutted down:

57:4 Wa (And) Hu is with you wherever you might be!
وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ

Hu is with you no matter when or where, and no matter what your circumstances, since this Third Person, seemingly absent, Divine Presence is in uncompromising love with ‘you’, following you closely.

As Araqi indicated, what makes the mother and fetus to follow each other is the attribute of The Divine Beloved that was bestowed upon the mother and the fetus. Without the bestowal of such attributes from The Divine Beloved, no two objects would come together, not the mother and the fetus, not the stars and the cosmos, not this hand and these words and not your eyes and these letters. They come together due to the gravitation of the Divine Love, a uniting force between any two objects an endowment from That Divine Beloved.

Had the Divine Love was flinching for a second glancing at someone else, the fetus would have gone one way and the mother the other, the stars and here and the cosmos there, and this hand and these words would have never tryst…
80:34. That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,

80:35. And from his mother and his father,

80:36. And from his wife and his children.
يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ (34) وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ (35) وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ (36

And since the obsessed lover must track his most prized beloved, and there is no time or place that the lover might cease following after the precious beloved:

57:4 Wa (And) Hu is with you wherever you might be!

Had this verse read without the word Wa (And) i.e. ‘Hu is with you wherever you might be!’ it would have meant that the creation of the heavens and earth had nothing to do with the feeling of someONE following us every place and whenever time. ‘And’ indicates that there had to be the creation of all other things for the single purpose of rendering the trekking of the Divine Lover after ITs/His beloved i.e. Human being.

هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ يَعْلَمُ مَا يَلِجُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْهَا وَمَا يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ وَمَا يَعْرُجُ فِيهَا وَ هُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ

And you might now ask: What indicates that the purpose of this following after the human beings is love and loving? Uncontrollably I must answer: you!

From the follicles of your hair to the toes, ‘you’ are the reason why:

57:4 Wa (And) Hu is with ‘you’ wherever 'you' might be!

If you could understand ‘you’, then you would have felt the presence of Hu! Since the personal pronoun ‘you’, singular or plural, is a Divine Gift, a vitiated extraction from the ‘Divine You’ (Ka) for when the slave invokes the master: La-Ka Al-Hamdu (For Ka(You) all perpetual praise and adoration).  Had there been no Ka (You) no human being could invoke Allah!

Hess kardi? (can you feel this?)
حس كردى

Let’s say today was a good day, your loved ones around and money in your pocket and lots of colorful food on the table and slept with full security and tranquility. Take some beans lay a wet paper-towel over them! Soon ‘you’ notice they sprout into living moving creatures.

Let’s say today was not a good day, your loved ones betrayed you and your job was lost and not much to eat and had sleepless night scared about what comes tomorrow. Take some beans and lay a wet paper-towel over them! Soon YOU notice AGAIN they sprout into living moving creatures.

The two occasions have nothing in common except:

1.    You
2.    Hu is with ‘you’ wherever you might be
3.    Wa (And) i.e. the beans

If you cannot cognize #1 and #2 above, perhaps you can see and understand the #3: ‘And’ which is the sprouting beans under the paper towels that will sprout and move with life no matter where, even in the outer-space.

Aziz-eh Zibāyam (My beautiful dearest) If you cannot feel the presence of Hu, then you might be able to see Aziz-eh Zibāyat (Your Beautiful Dearest) sundering the seeds:

6:95 It is Allah Who causes the seed-grain and the date-stone to split and sprout.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ فَالِقُ الْحَبِّ وَالنَّوَى

Wa (And): Every dawn, every moment is sundered and sprouts like a seed by Hu that you might SEE and feel for sure ‘Hu is with you wherever you might be’.

6:96. He it is that cleaves the day-break (from the dark)

فَالِقُ الْإِصْبَاح

Don’t make the mistake that you are alone! Don’t make the mistake that only when you are good Hu is with you, and when you are foul Hu is away! Hu is with you, whether you are in deep Dhikr (Remembrance) or in depth of foolish sinning! Only the ignorant sees a difference.

39:67 No just estimate have they made of Allah
وَمَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ

It is all about ‘You’ and it is all about Hu being with you! Don’t underestimate the subtle presence of That Grand Companion, a companionship free of distance free of transience and yes free of betrayal.
