Rabee’ (rahimahullah) mentions:

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) used to divide his night into three portions. The first third was for writing, the second third for Salaah and the last third for rest.

Rabee’ (rahimahullah) also said:

In the month of Ramadhaan, Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) used to complete the recitation of the Qur’aan Majeed sixty times. However, it is not possible to calculate how much of it was accomplished in Salaah.

Rabee’ (rahimahullah) once said:

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) used to complete thirty recitals of the Qur’aan Majeed in every month, but during the month of Ramadhaan, he used to complete sixty besides what he recited during Salaah.

(Sifatus Safwah 1/437)

Ebrahim bin Muhammad Ash-Shaafi‘ee says:

I never saw anyone perform Salaah better than Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah). The reason for this is that he had learnt to perform Salaah from Muslim bin Khaalid (rahimahullah), who learnt from Ibnu Juraij (rahimahullah), who learnt from ‘Ataa’ (rahimahullah), who learnt from Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), who learnt from Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who learnt from Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

(Muqaddimah of Deewaan Imaam Shaafi‘ee pg.37)
