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.

      Al-wudu’ is either obligatory or recommended.
      a- There are three things for which al-wudu is obligatory.
      1- As-Salah (Prayers)
      Allah (exalted be He) said: “O you who believe, when you intend to offer As-Salah (prayers), wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, rub your heads, and wash your feet up to (and including) the ankles.” (Al-Ma’idan:6).
      2- Circumambulation of Ka’bah.
      This is because the Prophet ﷺ said to a menstruating woman: “Do not perform Tawaf until you have taken a purificatory bath.” [ narrated by Al-Bukhari.]
      3- Touching the Noble Qur’an:
      Allah the most Exalted says: “None touch it (The Noble Qur’an) except the purified”(Waqiah:79)

      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.]
