Abu Huraira (may Allah almighty please with him) narrated:
Allah's Messenger (may peace and blessing of Allah almighty shower on him) said,'A prayer performed in congregation is twenty-five times more superior in reward to a prayer performed by a single person. The angels of the night and the angels of the day are assembled at the time of the Fajr (Morning) prayer."

Abu Huraira (may Allah almighty please with him) added, "If you wish, you can recite: 'Verily! The recitation of the Qur'an in the early dawn (Morning prayer) is ever witnessed (attended by the angels of the day and the night).' " (17.78)

When a Muslim is questioned in his grave, he will testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and that is what is meant by Allah's Statement:

"Allah will keep firm those who believe with a word that stands firm in this world and in the hereafter." (14.27)

Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) said, "Allah said, 'Spend (O man), and I shall spend on you." He also said, "Allah's Hand is full, and (its fullness) is not affected by the continuous spending night and day." He also said, "Do you see what He has spent since He created the Heavens and the Earth? Nevertheless, what is in His Hand is not decreased, and His Throne was over the water; and in His Hand there is the balance (of justice) whereby He raises and lowers (people)."

The most in their suffering among the people are the Prophets, then the best, then the (next) best. One is afflicted in accordance with his deen (strength of their religion). If his deen is firm (strong) his affliction is hard, and if his deen is weak, his affliction is light. Indeed, one would be so much subjected to adversity until he walks among the people without any sins.
