The prominent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Iqbal Nadvi, Director and Imam of Al-Falah Islamic Center, Oakville, Ontario, Canada , states: In normal situation, we should either try to sit and do our effort to learn about the sunnah way of sitting during the tashahhud. According to fiqh schools, there are two ways to sit during tashahhud, so one can try to do any of them. If it is very difficult for a praying muslim to sit that way, then we are excused from it.
