Generally, Allaah is with us with His Knowledge, His seeing us and hearing all we say and do. This is general on all and is what He refers to in the verses we have quoted earlier. However, He specifically mentions being with His messengers and prophets (peace be upon them), the saabiroon (the patient ones) and the righteous people in general, this form of His being with them, with regard to His (Allaah) help and protection for them against their enemies.
For example, He says, "you help him (Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)) not (it does not matter), for Allaah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they (Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) and Abubakr (RA)) were in the cave, and he said to his companion (Abubakr RA): If Be not sad (or afraid), surely AIlaah is with us." (Q 9:40).
Concerning Nabiyy Moosa and Haaroon (peace be upon them) Allaah said:
"if They said: Our Lord! Verily! We fear lest he should hasten to punish us or lest he should transgress (all bounds against us). He (Allaah ) said: Fear not, verily! I am with you both, hearing and seeing." (Q 20:46).
He also says, "then when Talut (Saul) set out with, the army, he said: Verily! Allah will try you by a river. So whoever drinks thereof, he is not of me, and whoever tastes it not, he is of me, except him who takes (thereof) in the hollow of his hand. Yet, they drank thereof, all, except a few of them. So when he had crossed it (the river), he and those who believed with him, they said: We have no power this day against Jalut (Goliath) and his hosts. But those who knew with certainty that they were to meet their Lord, said: How often a small group overcame a mighty host by Allaah Leave? And Allaah is with As-Saabireen (the patient ones)." (Q 2: 249). Thus, Allaah being with us (Maiwatullaah) is general (Aamah) and specific (Khaasah).
