عن الْبَرَاء بْن عَازِبٍ -رضي الله عنهما- «أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كان في سفر، فصلى العشاء الآخِرَةَ، فقرأ في إحدى الركعتين بِالتِّينِ وَالزَّيْتُون فما سمعت أحدًا أحسن صوتًا أو قراءة منه».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

Al-Baraa ibn `Aazib, may Allah be pleased with both of them, reported: "The Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, was on a journey and he performed the `Ishaa prayer, reciting in one of the two Rak`ahs Surat-ut-Teen. I have never heard anyone with a better voice or recitation than him."

Explanation

The Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, recited Surat-ut-Teen, which is a short Surah, in the first Rak`ah of the `Ishaa prayer, because he was on a journey. While traveling, one should be keen on making things easier because of the hardship of traveling. Even though the Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, was on a journey, he didn't abandon what evokes humility and attentiveness of the heart in prayer when listening to the Qur'an, which is beautifying one's voice with the recitation of the Qur'an in prayer.
