Jalsatul Istiraaha - Sitting briefly After The 2nd Sajdah Of The First Or Third Rakaat

In a narration from the ibn Sahl (radhiallahu anhu) it is mentioned that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said the takbeer and simultaneously went into sajdah. Then he said the takbeer and simultaneously stood up erect without sitting. [Abu Daud, Hadith no. 966]

Imaam Bayhaqi (R.A.) has recorded in his Sunan that this was the practice of Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (radhiallahu anhu). Allaama Zayla'i (R.A.) has recorded in Nasabur Raayah that the same procedure was the practice of Hazrat Umar, Ali, Abdullah Ibn Zubeir and Abdullah Ibn Abbaas (radhiallahu anhu). (Vol. 1, pg. 289)

Likewise Allaamah Turkumaani has recorded in Jauharun Naqi regarding several Sahaaba (radhiallahu anhum) that it was their practice that after the first and third rakaat they would stand up straight from sajdah without sitting. (Vol. 1, pg. 125)


Tashahhud

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is reported to have said: "When you sit during salaah (for Qa’dah Akheerah, the last Qa’dah) read the following:-

"All oral, physical and monetary worship is due to Allah alone. Salutations to you ‘O Nabi, and the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you. Peace be upon us and upon all the righteous servants of Allah. I bear witness that none is worthy of worship besides Allah and that Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is his servant and messenger.)

Thereafter he would choose from the supplications whatever he wished."

[Sahih Muslim, Hadith no. 402; Sahih Bukhari, chapter on Tashahhud].


Rasing the Index Finger During Tashahhud

It is narrated that when Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) used to sit down to supplicate, (to recite tashahhud) he used to place his right hand on his right thigh and his left hand on his left thigh. He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger. He would also join the ends of his thumb and middle finger (thereby forming a circle). [Sahih Muslim, chapter on the description of sitting-Hadith no.579]


Durood Sharif

The Sahaabah-e-Kiraam (radhiallahu anhum) inquired from Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as to which durood should they recite (during salaah). Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) replied: "Recite the following durood-

(trans: O Allah shower your mercy upon Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and the family of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as you have showered your mercy upon Ibrahim (A.S.) and the family of Ibrahim (A.S.). Behold, you are Praiseworthy, Glorious. O Allah shower your blessings upon Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and the family of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as you have showered your blessings upon Ibrahim (A.S.) and the family of Ibrahim (A.S.). Behold, you are Praiseworthy, Glorious.
