"Again in the Qur'an, we read: 'He is with you wherever you are and God sees whatever you do.' What glad tidings are in this verse for those who believe! The great Rumi was moved by the good news of this verse and his heart gladdened greatly. In one poem, he says: 'The good news that He is with you wherever you are comes from God. This news fills one's heart with gladness and hope. You have not found peace and joy because you have not known yourself. Were you to know yourself, were you to know who your guest [is] inside of you, you would never see discontent and lack of peace coming your way.' "
