What are the materials used for tayammum? Some days I use powder instead of earth, is that valid?

  • You can use your resident wall. Even your wall looks no dist over there. But inshaAllah you can use the wall. Wallahu A'lam. – hepidad Jan 21 '15 at 11:48
  • thanks a lot for your answer. yes, my wall looks like it has no dust and i dont find any dust on my hand when i touch it.. thats why i was confused and started using powder thought it could be a similar product. so, are you sure some how that i can use the wall when there is no dust, it'd be more convenient for me when im out of home also. since water doesn't suit me well.. – Nadia Ali Jan 21 '15 at 18:41

Only certain materials may be used for tayammum. These materials are such that when burned, they don't produce ashes. The easiest thing would probably be to use a rock.

I disagree with the viewpoint of using walls unless the wall is made of brick in which case it is similar to using a stone.

  • Thanks a lot! this answer is more specific to my questions!! I didn't know that i can also do tayammum for ghusl! (faound that: For Ghusl one should make the intention: "I am making Tayammum for Ghusl")! and at last it said i can use stone, wall or Baked earthen pots (Unglazed) when all items which have thick dust on them (mentioned so).. I need more specific answer on this that do the material need dust on it or what if its clean.. And thanks again! – Nadia Ali Jan 24 '15 at 5:43
