Assalamualaikum Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham and all eshaykh staff.
During the tashahud, I raise my right finger during Shahadah until the end of Salawat Ibrahimiyyah. Is this correct? Or am I supposed to lower my right finger after Shahadah in the tashahud.?(I’m following Shafi’i fiqh.) What do I do if I have been doing things wrongly in my prayers? Thank you in advance for all your help and guidance.
wa `alaykum salam,
In the Shafi’i madhab you raise your finger at the time of Shahada and keep it like that until tasleem. It is considered makrooh to move the finger.
