Tashahhud

The Tashahhud (Arabic: تَشَهُّد‎), meaning the testimony of faith, is the portion of the Muslim prayer where the precant sits on the ground facing the qibla, glorifies God, and greets the messenger and the righteous people of God followed by the two testimonials. The recitation is followed by an invocation of the blessings and peace upon the prophet known as Salawat or Darood.
