closer than everything else

“And whosoever puts his trust in Allaah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allaah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allaah has set a measure for all things”
~ Surat ut-Talaaq, 65:3

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee (rahimahullaah) comments:

“{And whosoever puts his trust in Allaah}, meaning, with regard to his religious and worldly affair by depending on Allaah to bring what will benefit him and remove what will harm him, and by trusting in Him to make that easy, {then He will suffice him}, meaning: He will suffice him for the matter about which he is putting his trust in Him; and if the matter is in the provision of the All-Rich, the All-Powerful, All-Mighty, the Most Merciful, then it is closer to the slave than everything else, but perhaps the divine wisdom requires its delay to the appropriate time for him. So this is why the He, Most High, says: {Verily, Allaah will accomplish His purpose}, meaning: His decree will certainly be carried out, but – {Indeed Allaah has set a measure for all things}, meaning: a time and an amount, which cannot be exceeded nor missed.”
