AbdulNasir Jangda | The Meaning of the Tashahhud, The Sitting Portion of Prayer

Published

The tashahhud, the sitting portion of prayer, is a powerful and focal part of salah, the Muslim’s prayer.

However, since many Muslims are unable to understand Arabic, the beauty of the tashahhud is sadly lost for many people who can and should be benefiting from it everyday.

AbdulNasir Jangda, instructor for Bayyinah Institute, delivers a word-for-word analysis of the tashahhud, explains its background and variations, and gives a preview of his full course on the meaning of every word in salah, Meaningful Prayer.

    Thank you for the reminder, Shaykh. Sometimes we pray so mechanically that we forget what we are saying. Allahu Musta’an.

    I only just started watching it, but I wanted to thank you for the very clear audio and video. Often you have distractions or can barely hear the speaker even with the volume all the way up.

    That being said i’m so excited to watch this! I watched the other preview of meaningful prayer (i think its on the bayyinah youtube channel) a while back and was really moved by it.

    Salaam aleykum

    May Allah reward you and your family for this lecture. I have just realised that I mix the two tashahhud mentioned above. This wouldnt be correct to continue, would it?
