“If a man is in a deserted land and the time of prayer arrives, thus he performs ablution [wudu] and if he does not find water he performs the dry ablution [Tayammum]. If he gives the Iqamah [and offers prayer], his two Angels offer prayer with him, and if he gives the Adhan and Iqamah, an army of Allah pray behind him, the two sides of which is not visible [due to it’s sheer number].”

2) Tawus (rahimahullah) says:

“When a man [who is alone] offers prayer with Iqamah, his two angels pray with him. And when he gives the Adhan and Iqamah, many Angels offer prayer with him.”
