Making tayammum due to severe cold

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Tayammum was made for ghusal on a severe winters morning as there was no intizaam for hot water.

1. When does the Tayammum expire?

2. Does the fajr salaah need to be repeated?


A: If the water is so cold that one fears that one will become sick and there is no means to make the water hot, then it will be permissible to make tayammum and perform Salaah.

1. The tayammum will expire once one finds water one is able to use.

2. No

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