CHAPTER: RECITATION IN THE NOON AND AFTERNOON PRAYERS  

No. 908

Abu Qatada reported: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) led us in prayer and recited in the first two rak'ahs of the noon and afternoon prayers Surat al-Fitiha and two (other) surahs. And he would sometimes recite loud enough for us the verses. He would prolong the first rak'ah more than the second. And he acted similarly in the morning prayer.

No. 910

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported: We used to estimate how long Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) stood in the noon and afternoon prayers, and we estimated hat he stood in the first two rak'ahs of the noon prayer as long as it takes to recite Alif Lam Mim, Tanzil, i. e. as-Sajda. We estimated that he stood half that time in the last two rak'ahs; that he stood in the first two of the afternoon as long as he did in the last two at noon; and in the last two of the afternoon prayer about half that time.

Abu Bakr in his narration has made no mention of Alif Lam Mim, Tanzil, but said: As long as it takes to recite thirty verses.
