ٱللَّهُ لاۤ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ ٱلْحَيُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

God! There is no god except Him, the Living, the Eternal.
He is the One who is not diverted so as to be too busy for you, nor is He inattentive so that you are left without Him. He is the attentive observer (raqīb)over all of the states of your innermost self. If you are alone, He is watchful over you. If you are in the midst of human beings, He is watch- ful over you. In sum, however your states circle around you, He is your Beloved (ḥabīb).
