There is a certain delicacy when Quran speaks about Allah. I think Surah Tawhid is a great measure. Specifically و لم یکن له کفوا احد. If our spirit was of the same essence of Allah then we could countering Allah in that aspect. From the book of Al-kafi: From Imam Al-Sadiq: الصّادق (علیه السلام)- عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَاعَبْدِاللَّهِ (...

The link is that in the pre-Islamic times, the people used to marry orphan girls and unjustly take their wealth. This (unjustly taking their wealth) was made forbidden by Allah.

In particular, it is alluding to the previous verse of the Qur'an: Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.

That phrase demonstrates the Islamic principle of "Al Wala Wal Bara" which is where the person who loves Allah (ﷻ) is loyal to what Allah (ﷻ) loves and disavows what Allah (ﷻ) hates.

A clarification first You must differ between a Sahih book like Sahih Muslim and Sahih al-Bukhari and the Sunan books.

Some of the exegetes claim that the speaker here is Gabriel (عليه السلام), however some claim that he is Jesus (عليه السلام). If it is Gabriel then it is said because Mary (عليه السلام) was at a hill and the angel was in the valley beneath her. Refer to Tafsirs e.g. Ibn Kathir etc.
