Making tayammum if water is not available at home

Q: If there is no water in the house for gusul and we cannot ask it from neighbour also, can we do tayyamum for namaz? I reside in Mumbai city.


A: If water is available within a radius of one mile, making tayammum will not be permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
