Hadith on Tilawah: The Prophet recited Quran clearly, word for word

Ya’la ibn Mamlak reported: He asked Umm Salamah, wife of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, about the recitation of the Prophet and his prayer. Umm Salamah said, “Not as you can pray. The Prophet would pray, then sleep for the amount he prayed. Then, he would pray the amount he slept. Then, he would sleep the amount he prayed until morning.” Then, she described his recitation, saying, “A clear recitation, word by word.”
