Sahib e nisbet?

Sayyidi wa sanadi Hadhrat Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him) said,

“Some individuals achieve nisbet (a perpetual, close and strong relationship with Allah) but they themselves are unaware of this fact.  There is benefit from Allah, Most High, in this unawareness also. That is, if they were to know, then either they will fall into self-pride (‘ujub) or their yearning will decrease.”
