Water is not enough for Ghusl but enough for Wudu' for the current Salah

Q: What should a person do if they wake up in the morning and find themselves in a state of Janabah (major ritual impurity related to sexual discharge), while the water they have is not sufficient for taking Ghusl (ritual bath) but only for Wudu’ (ablution), and it is time for Salah (Prayer)?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. If a person who is in a state of Janabah does not find enough water to perform Ghusl (ritual bath), they should perform Wudu’ with the little water they have, and then perform Tayammum (dry ablution with clean earth) to remove Janabah, if there is little time left, so that they do not delay Salah beyond its due time. (Part No. 5; Page No. 339) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
