How to Make Dry Ablution (Tayammum)

It is permitted to perform the dry ablution (tayammum) with a valid excuse– such as being roughly one mile or so away from any water.


How to Perform Tayammum

[1] Intend to lift the state of ritual impurity,

[2] say the basmala,

[3] strike the earth [or anything of the top surface of the earth like a stone],

[4] wipe your face entirely,

[5] strike the earth [or its equivalent] a second time,

[6] wipe the right arm completely up to and including the elbow, and then the left arm likewise.

And Allah alone gives success.
