Hadith No: 496
Narrated/Authority of Shubah
"Sayyar bin Salamah, narrated to us, he said: 'I heard my father ask Abu Barzah about the prayer of the Messenger of Allah (saw).' I said: 'Did you really hear him?' He said: 'I heard my father ask about the prayer of the Messenger of Allah (saw).' He said: 'He would not mind if he delayed it - meaning Isha until midnight, and he did not like to sleep before it or speak after it.'" Shubah said: "Then I met him later on and asked him. He said: 'He used to pray Zuhr when the sun had passed its zenith, and (he would pray) Asr and a man could walk to the farthest point in Al-Madinah and the sun would still be clear and hot. And Maghrib, I do not know the time he mentioned.' After that I met him and asked him, and he said: 'He used to pray Fajr then after the prayer a man could regarding it, sitting next to him, look at the face of someone he knew and he could recognize it.' He said: And he used to recite in it between sixty and one hundred (verses).'" (Sahih)
