laa-ilaahaAllah, The Most Exalted, says:

And indeed Allah is with the Muhsineen. (Qur’an 29:69)

The Muhsineen is those who occupy the rank of Ihsaan; thus, Allah is with those who practice Ihsaan. Allah is with them all the time. Allah protects them, surrounds them, supports them and strengthens them

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم  said:

Ihsaan is that you worship Allah as though you see Him. Then, if you do not see Him then indeed He sees you”

(From the famous ‘Hadith Jibrail’)

This sentence of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم can be understood as follows;

Ihsaan is that you reach such a degree of devotion, sincerity, godliness, and awareness in your worship as well as in your very being and existence, that you obey Allah and worship Him in such a state that your belief extends to your body and mind. Not only are you convinced of Allah and your relationship with Him but that belief and conviction, that faith in Allah permeates your very body, nay your very existence. And thus with this state of mind, heart and spirit you worship Allah with such conviction and faith as though you are constantly seeing Allah Himself.
