5- AL-MÂ’IDAH The Table Spread Revealed at Madînah/
6. O you who believe, when you rise up for prayer, perform the rites of ablution by washing your faces, and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe all or a part of your heads, and (wash) your legs to the ankles. And in case you are ritually unclean due to sexual discharge, then totally purify yourselves by washing your whole bodies. And in case you are suffering from an illness that prevents you from using water or you are on a journey, or in case any of you has come from the toilet or privy, or you have had contact with women, yet you cannot find water, then have recourse to good soil and so wipe your faces and hands with it. Allâh does not want to make any restriction for you, but, indeed, He wants to purify you and perfect His favor on you, that possibly you would thank Him by persisting in obeying Him.
