TAYUMMUM


Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

Hadrat Jabir (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “The chief thing in tayammum is to strike the hand on (clean) ground, once for the face and and again for both the hands upto the elbows. [Mustadrak]

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi 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]
