Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Salaam wa aylukum,

I have a question about what to do with the finger in tashahud. I want to complete salat according to the sunnah way and the only thing I'm still uncertain about is how to move/place the finger during this part of the prayer. Inshallah, can you help me or guide me to a reputable source? I am asking you because at our mosque there is no designated Iman or shaykh.

Jazak Allhu Khairun

when you say Ashadu An La Ilaha IlAllah,then raise up your finger, when you say Wa Ashadu An NaMuhammed Abduhu Wa Rasuluh, put your finger down

You should raise it just as you are saying 'Ashadu an-la ilaha illAllah' because it's when you are testifying that "there is no God but Allah" . You can research further in the Hadeeth (particularly Sahih Al-Bukhari or Sahih Al-Muslim - they're the authentic ones.)
