“When the servant of Allah uses the miswaak and then performs Salaat, an angel stands behind him, listening attentively to the recitation of the Qur’aan. The angel draws closer and closer to the reciter and places his mouth on the mouth of the musalli. Thus every word emanating from the mouth of the musalli enters the angel’s mouth. Therefore maintain your mouth pure and clean for the Qur’aan.” hadith
does this angel still enter the mouth of the musalli if he does wudhu without the miswak?

In our opinion the Angel will not enter if Miswak is not used. The Hadith in question emphasizes the use of the Miswak and conditions the Angel’s entry on the use of the Miswak.
