Yes. It is narrated as one of the Mustahab (recommended) recitations in Tashahhud.

أشهد ان لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له واشهد ان محمدا عبده ورسوله ارسله بشيرا ونذيرا بين يدي الساعة . اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد 

It is mentioned in many jurisprudence books like al-'Orwatul Wothqa and other books beside our books of Hadeeth like Wasaa'il al-Shia.


Tashahhud is an obligatory part of Salah which must be performed exactly as the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) taught us to perform according to the authentic Prophetic Hadeeth (Perform Salah as you saw me performing Salah)  (Sallo Kama Ra'aitomooni Osalli)صَلّوا كما رأيتموني أُصَلّي.

Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) taught his followers all details of Salah including Tashahhud. ( Amaali Al-Shaikh Al-Sadouq , page 498 narrating from Hammaad Bin Easa).

 Tashahhud must have ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALA MUHAMMAD WA AALI MUHAMMAD which mentions Imam Ali (AS) and all the Infallible Ahlul Bayt (AS). 

We are not allowed to add on Tashahhud more than what Ahlul Bayt (AS) taught us.

We can mention the name of Imam AALI (AS) in the form of Du'a within our Salah after Tashahhud, like saying : ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALA AMEERIL MO'MINEEN. Du'a is always good within our Salah and not only in Qunoot.

By this Du'a, we will be mentioning the holy name of Ameerul Mo'mineen (AS) and not adding on the Tashahhud which was been taught to us by Ahlul Bayt (AS).


We have option to recite with clear voice (Jahr جهر) or whispering (Ikhfaat إخفات) in Tashahhud and Salam and Thikr of Rokoo' and Thikr of Sujood in any prayer.



Thank you for your question. It is not obligatory to recite the tashahud loudly in prayers.

May you always be successful
