Aisha said, "He (the Prophet) used to recite the chapter slowly, so much so that it would be longer than chapters that were actually longer than it". In Sahih Al-Bukhari, it is recorded from Anas that he was asked about the recitation of the Messenger of Allah , so he replied, "He used to elongate the letters."... Ibn Jurayj reported from Ibn Abi Mulaykah, who narrated from Umm Salamah that she was asked about the recitation of the Messenger of Allah, so she said, "He used to pause in his recitation, verse by verse". This was recorded by Ahmad, Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi. We have already mentioned the Hadiths which prove the recommendation of slow rhythmic recitation and beautification of the voice while reciting at the beginning of this Tafsir... It has been narrated from Ibn Mas'ud that he said, "Do not scatter the (recitation of) Qur'an out like the scattering of sand, and do not rush through it like the hasty recitation of poetry. Stop at its amazing parts and make your heart move with it. None of you should let his concern be to reach the end of the chapter"
Sahih Bukhari
Volume 1, Book 2, Number 8:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya (This term "Haya" covers a large number of concepts which are to be taken together; amongst them are self respect, modesty, bashfulness, and scruple, etc.) is a part of faith."

Sahih al Bukhari Hadith
Volume # 2
Hadith # 512
Narrated by: Abu Burda bin Abu Musa (RA)

Abu Burda bin Abu Musa (RA) narrates that his father said, "Whenever a beggar came to Allah's Apostle (SAW) or he was asked for something, he used to say (to his companions), "Help and recommend him and you will receive the reward for it; and Allah will bring about what He will through His Prophet (SAW)'s tongue."
Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) said, "Beware of suspicion, for it is the worst of false tales and don't look for the other's faults and don't spy and don't hate each other, and don't desert (cut your relations with) one another. O Allah's slaves, be brothers!"

Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 717
