So, where is the catch 🧐?
Nothing that weighs so much as an atom is hidden from your Lord, whether on earth or in heaven, when you speak aloud, He knows your secret and that which is even more hidden. He is with you wherever you are, with His knowledge, awareness, and power.

In this perfect-seeming picture, what is really wrong that we don’t see 🤔?
The wrong is in the implication of an ignorant reader’s view that is unacceptable in the extreme.
Yes. God is with us wherever we are WITH his knowledge and awareness but not in the physical form. And, just a little misinterpretation might give rise to this horrible deviation.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his fatwa that if you say that Allaah is everywhere, this implies that He is in lavatories – Allaah forbid – and in other places that filled with impurities and filth, and who would describe his Lord in such terms? It is not possible for any believer to describe his Lord in such terms.
He rose above His Throne and He is above His creation.
And, no one can deviate so far except the one who has no sincerity in his heart whatsoever.
Always have an eye for detail while reading lest you misread.
And, always have the same in life too 😊.
