  • Skipping the first Tashahhud deliberately Date: 12-12-2017

    Assalaam. Sometimes, I intentionally skip the first Tashahhud in the Magrib/‘Ishaa’ prayer when I am in a hurry. At times, I recite only the Shahaadah (testimony of faith) part in the sitting.

Another related question is: Is the.. More

    Could it be that the Prophet, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam,moved his finger in the prayer due to old age and not being able to keep it still, like it was reported from 'Aa'ishah, that he, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam,would sit in the prayer in his old age? This would explain why Waa'il, a Companion from Yemen who spent little time with the Prophet,.. More
