2. When you reach "Ashhadu Allah-ilaha" while reciting "At-tahiyyat"raise the shahadah finger (the fore-finger or the index finger) with a pointing motion and let it fall back at "Illul-lah".
3. The method of making a pointing motion is that you make a circle by joining your middle finger and the thumb, close the little finger and the ringfinger (the one next to it), then raise the shahadah finger in a way that it is tapered towards the Qiblah. It should not be raised up straight in the direction of the sky.
4. However, lower the shahadah finger while saying "Illul-lah".but retain, right through the end, the initial formation of the rest of the fingers you already had when making the pointing motion.
