How to do Tayammum?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 6:O you who have believed, when you rise to offer the salaah you must wash your faces and hands, and arms upto the elbows, and wipe your heads with wet hands, and wash your feet upto the ankles. And if you have become unclean (due to sexual intercourse, etc.), cleanse yourself with a full bath. If, however, you are sick or on a journey, or if any of have relieved himself, or if you have touched women (meaning sexual intercourse), and you can find no water; then cleanse yourselves with pure dust. Strike your palms on it and wipe your hands and faces with it. Allah does not will to make life hard for you, but He wills to purify you and complete His blessing upon you, so that you may show gratitude.
How to do tayammum:
Find pure dust or sand
Say Bismillah and strike both your palms on the dust
With left palm and fingers, lightly wipe the back of the right hand from the wrist to the fingers.
With right palm and fingers, lightly wipe the back of your left hand from the wrist to the fingers.
(optional to strike the pure dust again)
With both palms and fingers, lightly wipe your face from forehead to chin
You are now in wudu and available for prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
