Is it permissible for a person to perform Tayammum for Janazah Salaah? Also after a wet dream, without having time to perform ghusl.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Arij Canada
Is it permissible for a person to perform Tayammum for Janazah Salaah? If a person is travelling to attend a Janazah Salaah, and he experiences a wet dream whilst travelling but he doesn’t have enough time make ghusl, can he make Tayammum and perform the Janazah Salaah?

Answer: The Fuqaha have given permission to make Tayammum when a person fears that he will miss the whole Janazah Salaah. Seeing that your situation is similar, Tayammum will be permissible for you. Therefore you can suffice on making Tayammum and participate in the Janazah Salaah without having to first take a bath or make wudhu. Tayammum is permissible for both hadath e asgar (when in need of Wudhu) as well as hadath e akbar (when in need of a bath). However, after completing the Janazah Salaat an earnest effort must be made to make arrangements for a bath. It is highly undesirable for one to stay in a state of najaasat (impurity) especially when it is possible for one to have a bath. (Fatawa Hindiyah vol 1 pg 31)
