Is it permissible to perform several namaz (prayers) with the same tayammum (dry ablution)? What breaks tayammum?    


It is permissible to perform several prayers with one tayammum. Hanafi fiqh books state:

“و يصلي بتيممه ما شاء من الفرائض و النوافل”

However according to Imam Shafi’i (رضى الله عنه) you must do a separate tayammum for each separate fard (compulsory) prayer.

It says in Hidayah, chapter of tayammum,

و عند الشافعي يتيمم لکل فرض لأنه طهارة ضرورية، ولنا: أنه طهور حال عدم الماء فيعمل عمله ما بقي شرطه

It also states in Inayah:

“أنه طهور أي التراب طهور بشرط عدم الماء بالنص”

Tayammum will break with anything that breaks wudu and also if you find water or become able to use water.

Hidayah states:

“و ينقض التيمم کل شيئ ينقض الوضوء و ينقضه ايضا روية الماء”

Allah ta’aala is Most Knowing.
