We then reached a man whose hair colour was a mix of black and white. I asked Jibra'il, "Who is this man sitting at the door of Bait al‑Ma'mur, near Allah?"  Jibra'il replied, "He is your father, Prophet Ibrahim, and your house is in this place as well as a group of people from your Ummah who have Taqwa." At that'time, I read the following verse of the Qur'an:
"Verily the best of people to Ibrahim are those who follow him and (those who follow) the Prophet (Muhammad) and those who believe and Allah is a Guardian for the Believers. " 
I greeted him, to which he replied and said, "Welcome O' Prophet and O' virtuous offspring, O' one who has been chosen in a good time.'
In this place too, Angels, in full humility and humbleness were present. They gave me and my Ummah the glad tidings of goodness.
From Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 18, p. 326, Bab 3 - Ithbaat al-Mi`raaj wa ma`anaahu wa kayfiyyatuhu wa sifatuhu wa ma jaraa feehi wa wasf al-buraaq, Hadith 34.
 Allah (SWT) has no fixed place or station as he has no physical body to make Him limited to a certain place. Thus, the meaning of being `near to Allah' is more of spiritual or esoteric meaning.
