I’m not able to reach my feet in wudu

Home / Q&A / I’m not able to reach my feet in wudu


I have a problem in my back which many times causes me not to be able to bow, so i’m not able to touch my feet while making wudu. May I do tayyammum in these situations?

Shaikh Adel As-Sayed:

This is not a reason to make tayyamum. Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him said:

اتقوا الله ما استطعتم

Meaning: “Be obedient and pious to Allah as much as you can”

There could be solutions for this, for example she might put a bowl with water in the floor and wash her foot there.
