When is At-Tayammum prescribed?

Recommended Posts

1. During the scarcity of water or its unavailability

Allah, The Most Exalted, says: “... and you find no water, perform At-Tayamum.” (Al-Ma’idah:6) But it’s said that a person is not considered as having a lack of water when he has not searched for it.

2. When one is incapable of using water, even when it is available

For example, a sick and/or an eldery person who cannot move and has no one to help him/her perform wudu’.

3. When one fears he will be harmed by using water

Examples include:

a- A sick person whose use of water (for pruificaton) may aggravate his sickness;

b- A person experiencing extreme cold and does not have the means to warm water, coupled with a strong fear that he may fall sick from the use of cold water.

This is because the Prophet ﷺ approved of the action of Amr Ibn Al-‘As when he led his people in prayer and he had performed at-tayammum due to the extreme cold.[ narrated by Abu Dawud.]

c-Someone far away from others or on a long journey with no water except a little for him to drink and he is not able to get other water.

      The Prophet ﷺ said: “My nation will come forth on the day of judgment like ‘Ghurrah Muhajjaleen’ (horses with white forelocks and white feet)[ Al-Ghurru: is the white patch on the forehead of the horse. Muhajjaleen: are horses with white feet. At-Tahjeel: White patches on their limbs. This refers to the light on the Day of Judgment that will be on the parts of the body that used to be washed during al-wudu’.] as a result of making Al-wudu’. So any of you (who is) capable of lengthening his ghurrah (places of light) should do so.” [ agreed upon.]

      1. Delaying a ghusl until the time of a prayer is about to leave.
      2. For a female not to pray an obligatory prayer after her menstrual cycle stops.
      For example, her cylcle stopped before the period of zhur was over and the time ramaining for that prayer was enough to pray one raka’a of prayer. In this case it is obligatory on her to take a bath and pray zhur. The Prophet ﷺ said: “He who performs a raka’a of Subh prayer before the sun rises, has met (the time for) Salatul Subh. And he who performs a raka’a of Asr prayer before sunset, has met (the time for) Salatul ‘Asr.” [ agreed upon],
