Hakeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Shah Ashraf Ali Thanawi rasaid commenting on the verse 30 of sura al-Hud:
“An individual who is turning his attention towards Allah SWT (i.e. the aspirant/mureed/seeker) must not be ignored.
This is because Allah SWT is also attentive towards him.
Ignoring him will be ignoring Allah SWT.”
