Would Tayammum Be Valid if a Person Used a Tiny Stone and Rubbed It Around in His Hands

CategoriesTaharah [385]

Fatwa ID: 05548

 

Answered by: Alimah Safiyya-Maryam Ahmed

 

Question:

 

Would tayammum be valid if a person used a tiny stone and rubbed it around in his hands instead of placing the hands down onto the earth or object like usual?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Tayammum would be valid if due to the stone’s small size one was to rub it around in the hands like soap, this is because striking down upon the object is not a necessary condition.
