    Default is reciting tashahhud obligatory in Salah?

    Asallamu alikum wa rahmadulahi wa barakatu, I'm a new muslim so please excuse my lack of knowledge. I just want to know if its obligatory to recite it as I'm finding it difficult to memorise as I don't speak arabic.

    Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

    I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

    Reciting the tashahhud is necessary (wajib), both in the first sitting (after two rakats) and in the final sitting (at the end of the prayer)–but not obligatory (fard). Omitting it doesn’t invalidate the prayer, but does make it deficient.

    When a necessary (wajib) action is left forgetfully, forgetfulness prostrations are necessary–but not when a necessary action is left deliberately. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah; Ala' al-Din Abidin, al-Hadiyya al-`Ala'iyya]

    In your case, you needs to:
    [1] Take the immediate, reasonable means of memorizing the tashahhud;
    [2] Sit for the extent of the tashahhud, repeating some invocations (such as Subhan Allah, Alhamdulillah, La ilaha illa’l Llah, wa’l Llahu Akbar).

    No forgetfulness prostrations are required, nor you have to make up or repeat such prayers.
