Tayammum in cold weather
Fatwa No: 88999


Can I do Tayammum in this cold weather even if there is water but too cool?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.


Dry ablution is allowed for any person who is not able to use water or apprehends harm if he uses water due to his sickness or severe coldness of the water (which does not apply to Qatar).

However, if one can use the water after warming it then he has to do so.

 For more details in this concern, please read the Fatwas: 87006, 82337 and 85128.

Allaah knows best.
