    According to that post

    “Jab koi namaz parhta ha to arsh per

    Allah ke samnay Uska zikar hota ha, uski hazri lagti ha” and this line is enough for me till date to offer prayers. Just think Allah ke samnay hamara zikr, Hum jese gunagahron ka! What else anybody can wish for?”

    Kia ye authentic hai?

    There is no such Tradition (for further investigation, please share the relevant link/screenshot).

    However, we offer Salah because this is the way told to us to worship Allah, whom we acknowledge as our creator and want to express feelings of worship and gratitide. Five Salah have been made obligatory for Muslims which is an enough reason for any Muslim to offer Salah. (For further details on why we offer Salah or Why did Allah command us to Pray, please refer to the following thread: Discussion 45790).

    However, there are some other references in Quran and Hadith which inform us that Allah is well aware of everything that we do and yes, indeed he appreciates his pious creation at occasions.

    In Quran 17:78, it is mentioned that Quran recitation of Fajr Salah is attended by the Angels:

    وَإِنْ كَادُوْا لَيَسْتَفِزُّوْنَكَ مِنَ الْأَرْضِ لِيُخْرِجُوْكَ مِنْهَا وَإِذًا لَّا يَلْبَثُوْنَ خِلافَكَ إِلَّا قَلِيْلًا. سُنَّةَ مَنْ قَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنْ رُّسُلِنَا وَلَا تَجِدُ لِسُنَّتِنَا تَحْوِيلًا. أَقِمِ الصَّلاَةَ لِدُلُوْكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَى غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُوْدًا. وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَّكَ عَسَى أَنْ يَّبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُوْدًا. وَقُلْ رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِیْ مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَّأَخْرِجْنِیْ مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّیْ مِنْ لَّدُنْكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيْرًا. وَقُلْ جَآءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوْقًا.

    They are after uprooting you from this land in order to turn you out from here. But if this happens, then they too will not be able to stay here for long. Bear in mind the established practice about the messengers We have sent before you and you will not find any change in Our practice. [This phase is difficult indeed; so in order to acquire patience and perseverance in it] be diligent in the prayer from the setting of the sun to darkness of the night and especially in the recital of fajr [97] because the recital of fajr is in company [98] and get up in a part of night also [and pray]. This is additional for you. You may hope that [on the Day of Judgement] the Almighty will raise you such that people will be showering praise on you and keep praying: “Lord! [Wherever you want to make me enter] make me enter with honour and [from wherever you want me to leave] make me leave with honour and make power and authority my helper especially from Your self. And [O Prophet] proclaim: “The truth has come and evil has perished because evil was bound to perish.” (Quran 17:76-81)

    (Excerpt from Quranic Exegesis: Javed Ahmed Ghamidi)

    (Translated by Javed Ahmed Ghamidi)

    [97]. The actual words are: وَ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ. They refer to the recital of the Quran in the fajr prayer. Since this was evident from the relationship between the two co-ordinated clauses hence it was not stated in words. The word قُرْآنَ is in the accusative to specify its mention ie.أخص بالذكر قرآن الفجر. This broadly refers to the long recital in the prayer as well as it being audibly loud. Similarly, this style highlights the significance of the fajr prayer, particularly the recital of the Quran in it.

    [98]. Ie., the angels are present in it as evidenced by certain narratives (al-Bukhari, no. 4440; Muslim, no. 649). It is because of this blessing that both the prayer leader and his followers feel very attentive and focused in this prayer.


    This is also mentioned in ahadith as well:

    There are some other narrations as well which indicate that Allah does praise and forgive his people whom Angels find in gatherings where they are praising Allah. This can apply to all such gatehrings and congregational Salah is one the biggest gatherings where Allah is praised. So this can also apply to Salah as well. Please see for references:
