We mentioned the prayer of the Prophet

It is related from Muhammad ibn ‘Amr ibn ‘Ata’ that he was sitting with a group of the Companions of the Prophet. “We mentioned the prayer of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and Abu Humayd as-Sa’idi said, ‘I remember the prayer of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, better than any of you. I saw that when he said the takbir he lifted his hands level with his shoulders. When he did ruku’, he placed his hands on his knees and then bent his back straight. When he raised his head, he stood up straight until each vertebra had returned to its place. When he went into sajda, he placed his arms so that they were neither stretched out nor held close. The toes of his feet pointed towards the qibla. When he sat after the first two rak’ats, he sat on his left foot and kept his right foot upright. When he sat after the last rak’at, he extended his left foot across, keeping the other upright and sat on his buttocks.”

[Sahih al-Bukhairi # 794]

Learn The Qur’an, recite it and go to bed, for the likeness of The Qur’an and the one who learns It and acts upon It is that of a sack filled with musk, which spreads its fragrance everywhere. And the likeness of one who learns It then goes to bed with It in his heart is that of a sack that is tied up from which no fragrance comes out.
— The Prophet [Ibn Majah]
