    Question is as we know we have to do qudhu before every prayer if you don’t have one at least.

    We use water. Bit using all the 5 times water sometimes tires you off and starts to make skin dry and causes sometimes dryness and pain. Sometimes water from the tap is not very healthy because of our modern lifestyle fabrics. My question is of someone has water available but because of these reasons and sometimes he just doesn’t have the power anymore to do wudhu all the time , it can be too much sometimes before every 5 times of prayer, can he just do tayammum? Like he brings some clean sand at home or earth and sometimes skips wudhu and just do taymum upon that sand or earth? Because that would spare some difficulty and make salah easier to perform then always going to bathroom and I kid you not , it can be overwhelming after a while.

    In these situations when you really don’t want to do wudhu anymore , can we just use clean earth or sand?

    Kindly explain me this, thank you.

    Tayammum is allowed for special circumstances when the the situation is usually hard. If you think the problems you mentioned are unusually hard, you can do tayammum. But if these are usually hard, are these hard for others too ? If not then, one has to be as normal as others.

    If you do wudu once it can last for two or three prayers and you need not to do wudu for five times.
