Method of Tayyamum
- :Seyyed Baqir Nisar Zaidi
The method of tayyamum is first you make this intention: "I am performing tayyamum instead of wudhu wajib qurbatan illallah".
Then immediately strike both of your hands on clean soil or clay. Then wipe both of your palms. Wipe your whole forehead fr om where the hair touches the forehead. After this again strike both hands in the soil. W ipe your hands together from the wrists until the tips of your fingers. First the right hand, then the left hand. Keep these points in your mind. First tayyumam can only be performed with pak (clean), dry soil or clay.
If it is not available, then you cannot substitute any other kind of soil or clay in its place. If clean soil or clay is unavailable, then you can perform tayyumam on a pak piece of cloth which contains dust that is pak (clean). Apart from this, you can also perform tayyumam on wet clay, but not on ashes. Secondly, you can perfor m many prayers after making tayyumam once the same way you can with wudhu because tayyumam is a substitute for wudhu.
