How does one make Tayammum, when there is no mud around, generally the houses in the Western countries, you won?t even find dust, etc, and the walls of the house are painted.

What are the Ahadith regarding this topic?

Answer

Tayammum may be performed with anything that is Jins-ul-Ardh, i.e. anything
from the earth. This includes stones, cement, bricks, claypot, etc.

The principle is – whatever becomes ash or melts by being burnt or heated
cannot be used for Tayammum, e.g. trees, grass, metal, gold, glass, etc.
