How should one encourage someone to read Salaah in Jamaah?

Question ID: 24095

Asalamu Alaikum
Respected Mufti Saheb
A family member who does not attend Jamaat Salaah. When told, that the reward for Jamaat Salaah is 27times more, He says that he is not reading Salaah for the reward, but is reading the Salaah for the Creator (Allah) and that his Creator (Allah) will reward him as Allah wishes.
How do we answer this person?
What do we say to him?
May Allah guide us all. Ameen

Was Salaam

Firstly be happy he is Reading Salaat. Be friendly with him. Do not be confrontational with him. We have written on the 27 actual benefits, see it on site, give it to him. Explain from a social, political, economic view the benefit of Salaat with Jamaat. He will not understand the concept of 'Thawab' because the reality has not perpetrated us even.
