What does it mean when "Allah Prays for you"?

As Salamualaikum Warahmatuallah,

I am having a hard time interpreting the following hadith.

From Abu Umaamah: Rasul Allah said, "Verily Allah and His angels, even the
ant in its hole and the fish in the sea, verily (they all) pray for he who
teaches people good." – authentic, narrated by Tabraanee.

Shaikh Mohammed Shareef can you please explain what is the implication of this?
What does it mean when it says "Allah prays for a person"?

Jazakallah Khair
Zubair Khan


Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty); Looking towards their Lord; And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal, In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them; Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit), And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?" And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting

Surah Al Qiyamah - 75 Ayah:22-28

wAllahu 'alam
The Salah of each one is different, obviously.
the way an ant prays, and the way an angel prays are different.

And so what is meant by Allah "prays"?

Allah's prayer is a sending down of blessings.

Such as our statement "Allahumma Salli 'ala Muhammad"
The literal translation is "O Allah 'pray' on Muhammad", but the meaning is "O Allah, send your peace and blessings on Muhammad"

wAllahu 'alam
