Hadith on Prayer: Angels pray with one who prays alone

December 29, 2017

Salman Al-Farsi reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “If a man is in a deserted land and the time of prayer arrives, then let him perform ablution. If he does not find water, then let him perform dry ablution. If he establishes the prayer, then two angels pray with him. And if he announces the call to prayer and establishes the prayer, then behind him will be angels among the armies of Allah who cannot be seen due to their great numbers.”

عَنْ سَلْمَانَ الْفَارِسِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا كَانَ الرَّجُلُ بِأَرْضِ قِيٍّ فَحَانَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ مَاءً فَلْيَتَيَمَّمْ فَإِنْ أَقَامَ صَلَّى مَعَهُ مَلَكَاهُ وَإِنْ أَذَّنَ وَأَقَامَ صَلَّى خَلْفَهُ مِنْ جُنُودِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يُرَى طَرَفَاهُ
