Bismillahi Al-Rahmani Al-Rahim

Insufficient Water

You translated under the tayammum section that if someone has water sufficient enough to perform a little bit of the ablution with, then he performs the ablution and then does tayammum. How does he go about doing that?

al-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

He begins the process of making wudu, and when the water runs out he makes tayammum.

And Allah knows best.

wa al-salamu `alaykum
