Performing Salah before or after its due time

Q: In case I am traveling and the Salah (Prayer) time becomes due, and I cannot find water at present but there is a possibility of finding water before the time of Salah is over, should I delay my Salah until I reach the place of water then perform Wudu' (ablution) and perform Salah, or should I perform Tayammum (dry ablution) once the time is due and offer my Salah?

A: If there is a greater likelihood for reaching water before the time of Salah is over with sufficient time allowing you to make Wudu' and perform Salah, you are permitted to delay Salah from its earliest time.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
