Tayammum (ablution)

Tayammum -ablution: Hadrat Jabir (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAAH (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) Said: ” The chief thing in Tayammum is to strike the hand on (Clean) ground , once for the face and again for both the hands upto the elbows. [Mustadrak]

Tayammum: The Prophet (Sallallahu wa Sallam) would not perform Tayammum afresh for each salaah. He did not even enjoin this either; he has made it a complete substitute for ablution. [Zadul Ma’ad]

tayammum

The mathed of Tayammum according to Imam bu Hanifah Imam Malik and Imam Shafi (Mercy of ALLAAH be on them) is to strike the hands twice on the (clean) ground, once for the face and again for both the hands upto the elbows. [Madarijum Nubuwah]

Mas’alah (regulation) The ground on which tayammum becomes justified as a substitute for ablution , also justifies tayammum as a substitue for Ghusal (Bath) (being fard) obligatory in case of sexual emission). tayammum for Ghusl (bath) is performed in the same manner as laid down for ablution [Bahishti Zewar]

Mas’slah (Regulation) 

Tayammum can be performed on either of the following things: Clean soil and sand: Stone and Lime; unglazed earthenware (whether backed or unbaked) , baked and unbaked bricks walls of other baked and unbaked bricks, of stone or of lime ( white washed) or of red chalk or of yellow earth.

Following ARE Obligatory 

  1. Niyyah: 2) Striking both the hands on the ground and than wiping the face with them ; 3) Striking both the hands on the ground and wiping both the hands upto the elbows. [Bahishti Zewar]

The Masnun Method 

The method of performing Tayammum is to make up one’s mind (NIYYAH) that he is performing Tayammum for purification from defilement. He should then say Bismillah and strike both the hands on a clod of earth, blow the excess dust and wipe the face with the hands so as not to  leave any place untouched then rub both the hands again on the clod and after blowing  the excess dust; first run the four fingers of the left hand from under the tips of the fingers of the right hand upto the elbow on the under side and then run the palm of the left hand from the elbow of the right hand upto the tips of the diners and along the thumb or the upper side deal with the left hand similarly and finally rub the spaces between the fingers of one hand with those of the other if one has a ring on any fingers he must either remove it or move it . To run the fingers of one hand through the fingers of the other is also obligation. The above method is  applicable for Tayammum either for ablution or Ghusl
