Learn How to Perform Tayammum

Tayammum should be performed instead of Wudhu or Ghusl. Tayammum is done as a substitution for water. Tayammum is permitted in two situations:

1. When there is no water to be found
2. When one is not able to use the water due to sickness
3. There is very little time left to start for a prayer

Tayammum can be performed for both types of ritual impurities:

1. Minor Impurity such as urine and feces, and
2. Major Impurity such as sexual relations or semen excretion.

It is permissible to perform Tayammum with everything that is found on the earth from its various types, such as sand, dirt and other types of earth. This is even if the earth is smooth land and there is no sand or dirt found on it, it is permissible to perform Tayammum on it.

Begin with Bismillah (In the name of Allah, the most merciful and the most kind).

Step 01

Make sure that you have pure, dusty soil unused before doing tayammum.


Step 02

Begin and Say Bismillah (In the Name of Allah) Strike the Soil with you palms

Step 03

Pass the Soil on all your face.


Step 04

Strike the soil again and pass it on both hands and forearms, including the elbows. It is recommended to pass it on the right arm first then the left.

Step 05

Make sure that the soil on the left hand reaches all the parts of the right arm and conversely [Refer Picture 05 to 07].

After Finishing the Tayammum Recite the Below Dua

"Ash-hadu an la ilaha illal lahu wa ash-hadu anna Muammadan 'abduhu wa rasuluh."

Meaning: I testify that there is no god but Allah and He is One and has no partner and I also testify that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.
