Moving the index finger during tashahhud

Q: Can one move the index finger during tashahhud? Most people don't move it once but keep on moving it. If one can kindly give me the refrence from Qur'an and Hadith.

A: Maalikis keep moving it and according to us you will move it just once. You do not need to object to the Maaliki practice.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
