Today stepshowto will let you know about how to perform tayammum and what tayammum actually is. Tayammum is an Arabic word that means “aiming for something”. In Islam, Tayammum is said to be dry ablution by using clean soil, sand, or stone. Islam is a religion that has highlighted the importance of cleanliness and called it half faith either by Wudu, by ghusal, or if there is no water then by tayammum. That is why Muslims consider cleanliness foremost. Purification is obligatory for Muslims to perform prayers or Ibadahs.
Tayammum in Quran
In two verses of the Quran, Allah (S.W.T) said:
Tayammum in Hadith
Conditions for tayammum
Tayammum can be performed instead of wudu in certain circumstances. In the light of the Quran and Hadith, the shariah has set some rules for performing Tayammum. Below are some conditions in which one can perform Tayammum instead of Wudu.
The following precautions must be taken when you intends to perform tayammum.
How to Perform Tayammum (Dry Ablution)

Making Niyyah or intention for Tayammum either by saying "I am doing tayammum in place of wudu, for the pleasure of Allah and to seek closeness to him", or by same intention. Or say Dua in Arabic
"إنني أتيمم على الوضوء لرضا الله وللتقرب منه"

Step 5 WIPE YOUR FACE
Now wipe your face with both hands, covering from right ear to left ear, and from the top of the forehead to the bottom of the chin as obligatory in wuzu with water. Then repeat step 2 and 3 again.
Step 6 WIPE YOUR ARMS
First, wipe your right hand up to the elbow bone with your left hand, and then your left hand up to the elbow bone with your right hand.
Step 7 Interlace your Fingers
Now interlace the fingers of both hands together to clean them deeply.
When to perform Tayammum
Islam is a complete code of life and one of the important principles of Islam is purity. Estimate its importance from the fact that Allah has favored two people, one who repents immediately after committing a sin and the other one who is pure and clean. The literal meaning of Tayammum is to intend and according to Shariat, it means to attain purity from pure soil. The two duties of Tayammum are to make Niyat and to strike twice. The intention is that I attain purity from all impurity. There are a few conditions for Tayammum and the first condition is that you are not able to use water or there is no water for a mile and the time of prayer is ending, then you can perform Tayammum and pray. Not being able to use water for other things means that water is available but it is very expensive than the market rate, so you can do Tayammum or water is available but it is so much that you are going on a journey and will have less to drink. So you can do Tayammum.
The second condition is to turn the hands on the soil and you can put three or more than three fingers on the soil, only two fingers are prohibited. You can do Tayammum with soil and it is pure.
The first sunnah of Tayammum is to read Bismillah and the second sunnah is to keep both hands on the soil and the third sunnah is to sweep away the soil if there is too much soil. The second sunnah is that when the hands are placed on the soil, the fingers should be wide and the fifth sunnah is that the fingers of both hands should be joined together. Tayammum is broken by anything that breaks ablution. Similarly, if you get sufficient water before offering prayer, it will break.
