Is it permissible for a traveler who stays for three or six days or even for one year to shorten Salah (Prayers)?
permissible to perform Tayammum (dry ablution with clean earth)
All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.
Travelers who intend to stay in any country for (Part No. 5; Page No. 350) more than four days should not shorten Salah. But if they intend to stay less than four days, then they are permitted to shorten Salah.
If they need to perform Tayammum, they have to perform it with clean earth. Allah (Exalted be He) says (what means):
...perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands (Tayammum).
It means the clean dust of the earth as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“The whole earth has been made for us a Masjid (place of worship), and its soil has been made for us a purifier in case we cannot find water.”
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
