1. AllahuAkbar doesnt make Allah Great
Allah does not require our praises for His benefit. When we say AllahuAkbar, Allah is the Greatest, He does not become greater. He is already the Greatest irrespective of whether we say Allahu Akbar a million times or dont say it at all. It will make no difference in his greatness. He will yet remain the Greatest.
2. We Praise Allah for our benefit
Allah says in the Quran in chapter 35 verse 15 (35:15) O ye men! It is Ye that have need Of Allah: but Allah is The One Free of all wants, Worthy of all praise. Allah is free of all wants. He does not require us to praise Him. It is we human beings who require Allah and we praise Him for our own benefit

God never requires anyone to praise Him.God is doing His duty, whether we praise Him, criticize Him or even do not believe in Him.

God has never asked me to praise HIM. can anyone proove that God demands or requires or asks anyone of us to praise HIM., we all do it of our own. no one can force us to pray for or in front of God. it is our inner fears,beleifs and fear of the unknwon that makes up pray or praise GOD. MANKIND does not do anything without any REASON

. We Praise Allaah for our benefit:

It is mentioned in the Quran in Surah Fatir chapter 35 verse 15

"O ye men! It is ye that have need of Allaah: but Allaah is the One Free of all wants, worthy of all praise." [Al-Quran 35:15]

Allaah (SWT) is free of all wants. He does not require us to praise Him. It is we human beings who require Allaah (SWT) and we praise Him for our own benefits.

3. We praise Allaah to convince ourselves that He is worthy to be obeyed and served.

God never expects to praise Him.

He expects us to do our duty and leave the rest to God.

We praise Almighty to propitiate him for our own upliftment. Lord receives no one's sin or merit.
One may get such belief, as the true knowledge is enveloped by ignorance, because all creatures are deluded
