Narrated/Authority of Ubai bin Kab
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 10, The Book of Leading the Prayer (Al-Imamah)
"One day the Messenger of Allah (saw) prayed Fajr, then he said: 'Did so-and-so attend the prayer?' They said: 'No.' He said: '(What about) so-and-so?' They said: 'No.' He said: 'These two prayers are the most burdensome for the hypocrites. If they knew what (virtue) is in them, they would come, even if they had to crawl. And the virtue of the first row is like that of the row of the angels. If you knew its virtue, you would compete for it. A man's prayer with another man is greater in reward than his prayer alone. And a man's prayer with two other men is greater in reward than his rayer with one other man; the more people there are, the more beloved that is to Allah, the Mighty and Sublime.'" (Hasan)

Narrated/Authority of Sulaiman bin Buraidah
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
that his father said: "A man came to the Messenger of Allah (saw) and asked him about the times of prayer. He said: 'Stay with us for these two days.' Then he told Bilal to say the Iqamah at dawn and he prayed Fajr. Then he told him to do that when the sun had passed its zenith and he prayed Zuhr. Then he told him to do that when the sun was still bright, and he said the Iqamah for Asr. Then he told him to do that when the last part of the sun had disappeared, and he said the Iqamah for Maghrib. Then he told him to do that when the twilight had disappeared and he said the Iqamah for 'Isha'. The following day, he prayed Fajr when there was light, then he delayed Zuhr until it was cooler before praying Asr but the sun was still clear, so he prayed Asr later than on the first day. Then he prayed Maghrib before the twilight disappeared. Then he told him to say the Iqamah for 'Isha' when one-third of the night had passed, and he prayed, then he said: 'Where is the one who was asking about the times of prayer? The times of your prayer are between the times you have seen.'" (Sahih)
Hadith No: 686
Narrated/Authority of Aisha
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 7, The Book of the Adhan (The Call to Prayer)
"Between the time when he finished Isha prayer and Fajr, the Prophet (saw) used to pray eleven Rakahs, saying the Taslim after each two Rakahs, then praying Witr as one Rakah. He would prostrate for as long as it takes one to recite fifty verses, then he would raise his head. When the Muadhdhin finished the call to Fajr prayer and he could see the dawn, he would pray two brief Rakahs, then he would lie down on his right side until the Mu;adhdhin came to ask permission to say the Iqamah, then he would go out with him." Some of these narrators (Ibn Abi Dhib, Yunus and Amr bin Al-Harith) added some phrases not mentioned by the others in the Hadith. (Sahih)
Hadith No: 534
Narrated/Authority of Jabir bin Samurah
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
"The Messenger of Allah (saw) used to delay the later Isha."* (Sahih) *It is described as the later Isha prayer because the Maghrib prayer is sometimes called Isha prayer, but it is the first Isha. Some scholars are of the opinion that it is disliked to call Maghrib Isha without qualifying it as the first Isha. See Fath Al-Bari.
Hadith No: 525
Narrated/Authority of Al-Husain bin Bashir bin Sallam
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
that his father said: "Muhammad (SAW) bin Ali and I entered upon Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari. We said to him: 'Tell us about the prayer of the Messenger of Allah (saw).' That was at the time of Al-Hajjaj bin Yusuf. He said: 'The Messenger of Allah (saw) came out and prayed Zuhr when the sun had passed its zenith and the shadow (of a thing) was the length of a sandal-strap. Then he prayed Asr when the shadow of a man was the length of a sandal-strap plus his height. Then he prayed Maghrib when the sun had set. Then he prayed Isha when the twilight disappeared. Then he prayed Fajr when dawn broke. The next day he prayed Zuhr when a man's shadow was equal to his height. Then he prayed Asr when a man's shadow was twice his height, and (the time between the prayer and sunset) lasted as long as it takes a swift rider to reach Dhul-Hulaifah. Then he prayed Maghrib when the sun set, then he prayed 'Isha' when one-third of one-half of the night had passed.'" - (One of the narrators) Zaid, was not sure - "then he prayed Fajr when it had become bright." (Sahih)
Hadith No: 514
Narrated/Authority of Jabir bin Abdullah
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
that Jibrail came to the Prophet (saw) to teach him the times of prayer. Jibrail went forward, with the Messenger of Allah (saw) behind him and the people behind the Messenger of Allah (saw), and he prayed Zuhr when the sun had passed its zenith. Then he came to him when the shadow of a person was equal to his height, and did as he had done before; Jibrail went forward, with the Messenger of Allah (saw) behind him and the people behind the Messenger of Allah (saw), and he prayed Asr. Then Jibrail came to him when the sun had set; Jibrail went forward, with the Messenger of Allah (saw) behind him and the people behind the Messenger of Allah (saw), and he prayed Maghrib. Then he came to him when the twilight had disappeared; Jibrail went forward, with the Messenger of Allah (saw) behind him and the people behind the Messenger of Allah (saw), and he prayed Isha. Then he came to him when dawn broke; Jibrail went forward, with the Messenger of Allah (saw) behind him and the people behind the Messenger of Allah (saw), and he prayed Al-Ghadah.* Then he came to him on the second day when a man's shadow was equal to his height, and did as he had done the day before, he prayed Zuhr. Then he came to him when the shadow of a man was twice his height, and did what he had done the day before, and prayed Asr. Then he came to him when the sun had set and did what he had done the day before, and prayed Maghrib. Then we slept and got up, and slept and got up again. Then he came to him and did what he had done the day before and prayed Isha. Then he came to him when the (light of) dawn was spread (on the horizon)** and the stars were still clear in the sky, and he did the same as he had done the day before, and prayed Al-Ghadah. Then he said: 'The time between these two is the time for prayer.'" (Sahih) *Meaning Fajr, the morning prayer. **The Fajr prayer was elongated because the Prophet (saw) recited at length during the prayer, so that it ended just before sunrise. That defined the end of the time for Fajr, as the beginning of the time was defined by the moment when he started the first Rakah.

"The Messenger of Allah (saw) used to pray Zuhr when the sun passed its zenith, and he would pray Asr between these two prayers; and he would pray Maghrib when the sun had set, and he used to pray Isha when the twilight had disappeared," then he said straight after that: "And he would pray Fajr when a man could see clearly."

Hadith No: 524
Narrated/Authority of Abu Bakr bin Abi Musa
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
that his father said: "A man came to the Prophet (saw) asking him about the times of prayer, and he did not answer him. He told Bilal to say the Iqamah at dawn broke, then he told him to say the Iqamah for Zuhr when the sun had passed its zenith and a person would say: 'It is the middle of the day,' but he (the Prophet (saw)) knew better. Then he told him to say the Iqamah for Asr when the sun was still high. Then he told him to say the Iqamah for Maghrib when the sun had set. Then he told him to say the Iqamah for Isha when the twilight had disappeared. Then the next day he told him to day the Iqamah for Fajr, at a time such that when after he had finished one would say: 'The sun has risen.' Then he delayed Zuhr until it was nearly the time of Asr compared to the day before. Then he delayed Asr, to a time such that when he finished, one would say: 'The sun has turned red.' Then he delayed Maghrib until the twilight was about to disappear. Then he delayed 'Isha' until one-third of the night had passed. Then he said: 'The time (for prayer) is between these times.'" (Sahih)

Narrated/Authority of Sayyar bin Salamah
From: Sunan An-Nasai. Chapter 6, The Book of the Times (of Prayer)
"I entered upon Abu Barzah, and my father asked him: 'How did the Messenger of Allah (saw) pray the prescribed prayers?' He said: 'He used to pray Zuhr, which you call Al-Uula (the first) when the sun passed its zenith; he used to pray Asr when one of us could go back to his home in the farthest part of Al-Madinah while the sun was still bright.' I forgot what he said about Maghrib. And he used to like to delay the Isha, which you call Al-Atamah, and he did not like to sleep before it nor talk after it. And he used to finish the Al-Ghadah (Fajr) prayer when a man could recognize his neighbour, and he used to recite (in it) between sixty and one hundred verses.'" (Sahih)
