Tashahhud (pronounced: ta-shah-hod) is what you say, in a whispering voice, at the end of the last rakaa in a prayer, while sitting on the ground in a kneeling position, and before 'tasleem' (see next post). If the prayer you're performing has more than 2 rakaa, you also say the first half of tashahhud, while kneeling, at the end of your second rakaa, in addition to saying the full tashahhud at the end of last rakaa.

Here is the first half of tashahhud:
Transliteration (what you should pronounce in prayer):

At tahiyyātu lillāhi, was-salawātu wat-tayyibātu. As-salāmu alayka ayyu han-nabiyyu wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuh. As salāmu alaynā wa 'alā ibādillā his-sālihīn. Ash-hadu al lā ilāha illallāhu wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abaduhū wa rasūluh.


Translation (you don't say that, its only for your reference):

All worships - oral, physical and monetary - are for Allah. Allah's peace be upon you, O Prophet, and His mercy and blessings. Peace be on us and on all righteous servants of Allah. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.



And here is the second half of tashahhud:
Transliteration (what you should pronounce in prayer):

Allah-hom-mah salli ala Mu-ham-mad wa ala aali Mu-ham-mad, kama sal-la-i-ta ala Ib-ra-heem wa ala aali Ib-ra-heem. In-na-ka Hamee-don Ma-jeed.
Allah-hom-mah baa-rek ala Mu-ham-mad wa ala aali Mu-ham-mad, kama baa-ruk-ta ala Ib-ra-heem wa ala aali Ib-ra-heem. In-na-ka Hamee-don Ma-jeed


Translation (you don't say that, its only for your reference):

O Allah, send prayers upon Muhammad and the followers of Muhammad, just as you sent prayers to Ibrahim and upon the followers of Ibrahim. Verily, you are full of praise and majesty. O Allah, send blessings upon Muhammad and the followers of Muhammad, just as you sent blessings upon Ibrahim and upon the followers of Ibrahim. Verily, you are full of praise and majesty.

Note: 'aali' here has been translated in its broadest sense. Some scholars are in the view that the meaning here is more specific and that it means: his followers from among his family.

Tasleem
While praying, 2 angels come and stay with you, one to your right and one to your left. The one to your right has the duty of writing your good deeds, and the one to your left has the duty of writing your bad deeds.
Upon finishing the full tashahhud at the end of the last rakaa, and while still sitting on the ground in a kneeling position, you turn your face to the right and say these greetings:

as-sa-laa-mo ala-i-kom wa ruh-mat-Oll-luh

then turn your face to the left and repeat the same greetings.
Tasleem means greetings. The above translates to: May the peace and mercy of Allah be upon you. That same greeting is widely used between Muslims whenever they meet each other. You get rewards each time you use it.
