This is mentioned in the Sabda Rasulullah SAW in the following hadith:

Meaning: "Allah will not accept prayers from those of you who read the Hadith until he makes ablution." (Reported by Bukhari).

In Bushra al-Karim, it is better to read the intention of ablution before washing your face to get the sunnah reward. The following is the intention before ablution.

I am planning to perform a small ritual ablution to remove dirt for God Almighty.

Nawaitul whuduua liraf'il hadatsil asghari fardhal lillaahi ta'aalaa.

Meaning: "I intend, for the sake of Allah, to perform ablution to remove small hadats."

This prayer after ablution is in addition to the procedures for ablution that you must read in order to be perfectly clean.

Procedure for tayammum according to the guide

In addition to the procedures for ablution, you must also know the correct procedures for tayammum according to the instructions. Tayammum is also a type of cleansing with holy earth or dust.

If there is no water around you, you can do tayammum to purify yourself.

According to Ahmad Najibuddin in his book Prayer Guide & Juz 'Amma Complete, Tayammum is permissible because there are obstacles that prevent a person from performing ablution using water.

Check out the following tayammum procedures:

  1. Prepare a floor that is still clean or dusty. Dust that sticks to walls, glass or other places that are considered clean are also allowed by the scholars.
  2. Place both palms on the cloth, close the position of the fingers of both palms. When doing tayammum, it is sunnah to face the Qiblah
  3. Then say Bismillah while your hand is still on the wall or sand.
  4. Then wipe all over the face with both palms.
  5. Then clean your hands, but first remove the jewelery on your hands, then place your palms back on the cloth and this time stretch your fingers.
  6. Then, with your right palm, lift both palms to your left hand. Then bring your fingers together and try not to let the right finger tip come out of the left index finger, or the right index finger will hit the left index finger.
  7. Then wipe the right hand across the right arm to the elbow, then turn the right hand and also wipe the other side of the right arm and wipe the palm from the elbow to the left thumb again by tapping the right thumb together. The same can be for the left hand.
  8. Then bring your palms together and stroke them between your fingers.
