Ruling 334

If the jabīrah has covered more than the normal area around the wound and it is not possible to remove it without causing excessive difficulty, one must perform tayammum unless the jabīrah is on a place of the body that tayammum is performed on, in which case it is necessary to perform both wuḍūʾ and tayammum. In both cases, if it is possible to remove the jabīrah without causing excessive difficulty, the jabīrah must be removed. Therefore, if the wound is on the face or arms, the area around it must be washed; and if it is on the head or on top of the feet, the area around that must be wiped; and for the place of the wound, one must act according to the rules of jabīrah.
