Q: I am a shafee student. In America i am told that as long as my intention is good Allah would accept whatever I do. My Imaam in XXXXXXXXX (country name omitted) gave us the minimum amount of water we needed for whudu. Can you please help me. I travel a lot. I drive taxi to pay for my school. I want to know what is the minimum amount of water I need for wudhu when i travel? Can i do tayamom?
A: The least amount of water needed for you would be .51 liters of water. (source: shafee fiqh)
Tayamum would not apply in the presence of water.
Allah Certainly knows Best.
