Lesson 34 Tayammum – Wiping
It is lawful to make use of pure soil (dry ablution or Tayammum) instead of performing ablution with water, if there is no water or if it might cause harm.
To perform Tayammum, one must put one’s hands onto clean soil (dust) and then wipe the face and palms.
Tayammum is nullified in the same way as ablution with water, as well as if water becomes available, or the reason for not using water no longer exists.
It is permitted to wipe over light leather socks or stockings on condition that: - they are to be worn while one is ritually pure, i.e. after ablution or purifying bath has been performed,
- they are to be removed only to wash the feet,
- the time for wiping over them should not exceed a day and a night for the resident and three nights for the traveler
- the socks should cover the feet and the ankle and should not be transparent
Wiping the splint It is lawful to wipe over splints and bandages
It can be translated as: “And if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes after answering the call of nature, or you have been in contact with women (by sexual relations) and you find no water, perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands (Tayammum).” (An-Nisa’: 43)
The Prophet (SAWS) said, "Clean earth is a means of purification for the Muslim, even if he could not find water for ten years." (Repoted byAn-Nasa’i)
`Ammar Ibn-Yasir (RA) narrated: “The Prophet (SAWS) stroked the earth with his hands and then passed them over his face and the backs of his hands (while demonstrating Tayammum).” (Reported by al-Bukhariyy)
Wiping on the boots of light leather and the like: A different interpretation of the verse no 6 of Surah Al-Ma’idah is: “…, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and your feet up to the ankles…”.
According to Sa`d Ibn Abi Waqqas, “The Prophet (SAWS) passed wet hands over his Khuffs (socks made of thick fabric or leather)“. (Reported by Al-Bukhariyy)
Boots of light leather (or stockings) should be worn after purification: When al-Mughirah Ibn-Shu`bah stretched out his hand to take off the Prophet’s Khuff (leather socks) during performing Wudu’, he said: “Leave them. I put them on after performing Wudu’” (Reported by al-Bukhariyy and Muslim)
There is a fixed time for permitting wiping: `Ali Ibn-Abi-Talib (RA) narrated: “The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) stipulated (the upper limit) of three days and three nights for a traveler and one day and one night for the resident.” (Reported by Muslim)
Wiping the splint: Concerning the person who had his head wounded, washed it; and, accordingly, died, the Prophet (SAWS) said: “It was sufficient for him to perform Tayammum, put a piece of cloth on his wound, then wipe it, and wash the rest of his body.” (Reported by Abu-Dawud)
