When he draws near Me by the span of his hand. I draw near him by the length of a cubit and when he draws near Me by the length of a cubit. I draw near him by the length of a fathom and when he draws near Me walking I draw close to him hurriedly.

He heard Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of His believing servant than a person who loses his riding beast carrying food and drink. He sleeps (being disappointed of its recovery) and then gets up and goes in search for that, until he is stricken with thirst. then comes back to the place where he had been before and goes to sleep completely exhausted placing his head upon his hands waiting for death.

Nu'man b. Bashir reported: Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of a believing servant than of a person who set out on a journey with a provision of food and drink on the back of his camel. He went on until he came to a waterless desert and he felt like sleeping. So he got down under the shade of a tree and was overcome by sleep and his camel ran away. As he got up he tried to see (the camel) standing upon a mound. but did not find it. He then got upon the other mound, but could not see anything. He then climbed upon the third mound but did not see anything until he came back to the place where he had been previously. And as he was sitting (in utter disappointment) there came to him the camel, till that (camel) placed its nosestring in his hand. Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of His servant than the person who found (his lost camel) in this very state.

'Azib reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: What is your opinion about the delight of a person whose camel loaded with the provisions of food and drink is lost and that moves about with its nosestring trailing upon the waterless desert in which there is neither food nor drink, and lie wanders about in search of that until he is completely exhausted and then accidentally it happens to pass by the trunk of a tree and its nosestring gets entangled in that and he finds it entangled therein? He (in response to the question of the Prophet) said: Allaah's Messenger, he would feel highly delighted. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said. By Allaah, Allaah is more delighted at the repentance of His servant than that person (as he finds his lost) camel.

Malik reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of a servant as he turns towards Him for repentance than this that one amongst you is upon the camel in a waterless desert and there is upon (that camel) his provision of food and drink also and it is lost by him, and he having lost all hope (to get tbat) lies down in the shadow and is disappointed about his camel and there he finds that camel standing before him.
