With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 46 (Ahqaf)
*Allah has not distanced Himself from His creation*
“And who is more astray than one who invokes, besides Allah, such as will not answer him to the Day of Judgment, and who (in fact) are unconscious of their call (to them)?”
Apart from emphasising the fact that all other false gods that people call upon are incapable of assisting those who call upon them, this verse also informs us that only Allah is conscious of anyone who calls upon Him. He listens to our prayers and also answers them.
Cross reference Surah 2 verse 186
“When my servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: let them also, with a will, listen to My call, and believe in Me: that they may walk in the right way.”
