(1) at-tashahhud: (to say at-taHiyyaatu....)

According to 'Abduallah ibn 'Abbas who said that Allahs Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) used to teach the Muslims the 'tashahhud' just as he would teach them a sura of the Quran. (Muslim)

'Abd Allah b. Mas'uud said: When we (prayed and) sat up during prayer along with the Apostle of Allah (pbuh), we said: "Peace be to Allah before (it is supplicated for) His servants; peace be to so and so." The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) said; Do not say "Peace be to Allah," for Allah himself is peace. (And so on as below) (Abu Dawud)

And in other hadith:

Narrated Shaqiq bin Salama:

'Abdullah said, "Whenever we prayed behind the Prophet we used to recite (in sitting) 'Peace be on Gabriel, Michael, peace be on so and so. Once Allah's Apostle looked back at us and said, 'Allah Himself is As-Salam (Peace), and if anyone of you prays then he should say, All the compliments, prayers and good things are due to Allah: peace be on you, O Prophet and Allah's mercy and blessings be on you. Peace be on us and on the true pious slaves of Allah. (If you say that, it will be for all the slaves in the heaven and the earth). I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I also testify that Muhammad is His slave and His Apostle." (Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 12, Number 794)

(2) Blessing on the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace)

Ka'ab b. 'Ujrah said: We said or the people said: Apostle of Allah, you have commanded us to invoke blessing on you and to salute you. As regards salutation we have already learnt it. How should we invoke blessing on to you? He said: Say:
"Oh Allah, bless Muhammad and Muhammad's family as You did bless Abraham and Abraham's family. Oh Allah, grant favours to Muhammad and Muhammad's family as You did grant favours to Abraham [and Abraham's family]. You indeed are praiseworthy and glorious." (Abu Dawud)

To invoke blessing on the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and on his family after the tashahhud during prayer is obligatory (wajib) in the opinion of 'Umar, Ibn 'Umar, Ibn Mas'ud and many others. Most of the scholars, however, maintain that it is not obligatory, but commendable or recommended (sunnah). This view is held by Abu Hanifah, Malik, al-Thawri, and others. ('Awn al-Ma'bud, I, 370)
