Q: I have a question about tayammum. How to do it and if we have to go to the toilet, then how can we clean our self with out water?


A: The method of tayammum is that one will make the intention of gaining tahaarat. Thereafter, both palms should be placed on pure ground or anything made from sand etc. and the entire face must be wiped with them. Then place the palms on the ground for a second time and wipe each hand upto and including the elbows.

You have to clean yourself with water.

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