Ruling on Tayammum

Q: What is the ruling on Tayammum (dry ablution with clean earth)?

A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. If a Muslim cannot find water (to perform ablution), cannot use water, or risks being physically harmed if they use water, performing Tayammum becomes Wajib (obligatory).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
