We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear brother, full bath becomes obligatory if one has sexual intercourse, but if there is no water, or one is unable to use water because of sickness etc – then tayamum takes the place of wudu and Gusul.

If there is a reason for doing tayamum – such as non-availability of water, or being unable to use it because of sickness etc – then tayamum takes the place of wudu and Gusul. So the person who is junub should do tayamum and pray, then when he finds water he has to do gusul. Thus one should not perform tayamum when water is available.

Is my fasting ok.

Yes, your fast is valid. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
