“O, you who believe! When you want to pray, then wash your face and your hands up to the elbows, wipe your head, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. If you are Junub, then take a bath. And if you are sick or on a journey or come back from a toilet or touch a woman, then if you do not get water, then do Tayammum with good (holy) dust; wipe your face and your hands with it. Allah does not want to make it difficult for you, but He wants to cleanse you and complete His favor for you so that you will be grateful.” (QS 5:6)
