I am a bit confused.

We have an inclined plane.

So I know that Ffmax=μ*N and μ is the coefficient of friction calculated as tgθ (θ is the angle at which the body is on the verge of sliding) and also Ff<=Ffmax

And we know that the force that makes the body slide is mgsinθ.

So as the angle increases this force(mgsinθ) increases but N=mgcosθ decreases . So my question is how does the friction force increases if N decreases ?
