Prayer Time

The Prophet - may peace and Blessings be upon him – used to make a long recitation (of Qur'an) during the night payer in Ramadan more than any other. Huzaifa prayed with the Prophet - may peace and Blessings be upon him – a night (prayer) in Ramadan, he said: He recited from Al-Baqarah, then An-Nisaa and then A'ali-Imraan, he does not pass a scaring verse unless he stops and asks, he didn't finish praying the two Raka'a until Bilal came and announced the A'azan for the prayer.

It was narrated by Abu Dharr that  "the Messenger of Allah - may peace and Blessings be upon him – led us in Qiyaam Allail prayer during Ramadan on the night of the twenty-third until one-third of the night, then he led us in Qiyam on the night of the twenty-fifth until one-half of the night, We said to him: 'O Messenger of Allah! Wouldn't you lead us in prayer for the remaining of the night?' He said: 'Indeed, whoever stands (praying) with the Imam until he finished, then it is recorded for him that he prayed the whole night.

This proves that standing for the (prayer of) third of the night and half of it  makes it be recorded for the stander the reward of praying the whole night but when it's done with the imam.
It was according to that Hadith that Imam Ahmad used to stand for the prayer, he prays with the imam until he finishes, and he does not leave until the imam leaves.

Some predecessors said: whoever stood half of the night for praying, he indeed stood the whole night.

It was narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As that the Prophet - may peace and Blessings be upon him –  said: "If anyone prays at night reciting regularly ten verses, he will not be recorded among the negligent; if anyone prays at night and recites a hundred verses, he will be recorded among those who are obedient to Allah; and if anyone prays at night reciting one thousand verses, he will be recorded among those who receive huge rewards."
