Hadith on Salat: Allah boasts to angels for those waiting in mosque

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: We performed the sunset prayer with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him. Some people left and some people stayed. The Prophet came back in a hurry, out of breath and holding his cloak above his shins. The Prophet said, “Rejoice! Your Lord has opened a gate to the heavens and He boasts to the angels, saying: Look at My servants! They have completed a prescribed prayer and they are waiting for another!

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو قَالَ صَلَّيْنَا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمَغْرِبَ فَرَجَعَ مَنْ رَجَعَ وَعَقَّبَ مَنْ عَقَّبَ فَجَاءَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مُسْرِعًا قَدْ حَفَزَهُ النَّفَسُ وَقَدْ حَسَرَ عَنْ رُكْبَتَيْهِ فَقَالَ أَبْشِرُوا هَذَا رَبُّكُمْ قَدْ فَتَحَ بَابًا مِنْ أَبْوَابِ السَّمَاءِ يُبَاهِي بِكُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةَ يَقُولُ انْظُرُوا إِلَى عِبَادِي قَدْ قَضَوْا فَرِيضَةً وَهُمْ يَنْتَظِرُونَ أُخْرَى
