It is He Who created the heavens and earth in six days, then He rose over thethrone. He knows what goes into the earth and what comes out of it, whatdescends from the sky and what ascends therein. And He is with you whereveryou are. And Allaah sees what you do.
[Soorah Al-Hadeed, 57:4]
Ibn Al-‘Uthaymeen explains: 
The author (Ibn Taymiyyah) begins by mentioning the evidence of
   
– the “Ma’iyyah” or“withness”, meaning the concept of Allaah (
    
) being with His creation. And it makes sense thathe’d mention it immediately after writing about the concept of Allaah being high above creationbecause it may seem to someone there’s a contradiction between Allaah being above everythingand His being with His worshippers. So, it’s very appropriate to cite the verses of Allaah beingwith His creation right after those of His being high above. And regarding Allaah being with Hiscreation, there are several topics…

Topic 1
The Categories of Allaah Being with His Creation
The concept of Allaah being with His creation is of two types: a general type and a specializedtype. And the specialized type is further broken down into two categories: specific to particularcharacteristics and specific to particular individuals.
The General Type 
As for the general type of Allaah being with His creation, it includes everyone from the believer tothe disbeliever, the righteous and the wicked. A proof and example for this type is the verse ofAllaah (

):

[Soorah Al-Hadeed, 57:4]
The Specialized Type 
As for the specialized type that’s specific to particular characteristics, an example is Allaah’sstatement:

Certainly, Allaah is with those conscientious and fearful
(of Him)
and those who aregood-doers.
[Soorah An-Nahl, 16:128]And as for the specialized type that’s specific to particular individuals, an example is Hisstatement about His prophet:
