Dear Brother / Sister,
There is no doubt that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was always at the highest level in worship. Therefore, it is possible to list the deeds of worship he performed in Ramadan in addition to his normal worship as follows:
a. He did not neglect to get up for suhoor. He also recommended suhoor to others.
“Make sure to get up for suhoor because there is blessing in suhoor.” (Bukhari, Sawm, 20)
b. He read the Quran every day. He recited it mutually (in the form of muqabala) with Jibril (Gabriel).
c. During Ramadan, his generosity increased more and more.
We can see those two aspects in the following hadith:
Ibn Abbas narrates:
“The Prophet (pbuh) was the most generous one among people in terms of charity. There was no limit to his generosity, especially when he met Jibril (Gabriel) in Ramadan. His meeting with Jibril took place every day during the month of Ramadan. His generosity in charity was like the blowing wind.” (Bukhari, Sawm, 7)
D. He performed tarawih prayer.
According to what Aisha (ra) narrates, the Prophet (pbuh) led tarawih prayer in congregation in the mosque for three nights. Every night the congregation increased more and more. On the fourth night, there were so many people that the mosque was brimful and many people remained outside the mosque. The congregation waited for the Prophet (pbuh) to come and lead tarawih prayer but he came to lead the morning prayer only. After leading the prayer, he turned toward the congregation and said,
“I knew that you were in the mosque waiting for me, but I feared that tarawih prayer would be rendered fard for you and it would be very difficult for you.”
When Aisha (ra) was asked how many rak’ahs he performed tahajjud (midnight) prayer (tarawih is also a midnight prayer) in Ramadan, she said,
“He did not pray more than eleven rak’ahs together with witr neither in Ramadan nor outside of it.” (see Bukhari, Tarawih, 1)
e. He performed i’tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan. (see. Bukhari, I’tikaf, 1)
f. He paid special attention to the Night of Power (Laylatul-Qadr). In fact, he generally performed i’tikaf with the intention of worshipping on the Night of Power. As a matter of fact, according to what Abu Said al-Khudri narrates, the Prophet (pbuh) performed i’tikaf in the ten days between the tenth and the twentieth of Ramadan before, and when he came to the 20th day, he said,
“I was shown the Night of Power, but I forgot; look for it in the last ten days of Ramadan.” (Bukhari, I’tikaf, 9)
