I refer to verse 4:43 (QXP)

So take a bath after ceremonial impurity. If you are travelling or are ill, or coming from the privy, and cannot find water, take a little clean sand or earth and lightly rub your faces and hands, before entering the masjid. (This will help you prepare for the assembly 5:6)). Allah pardons and absolves your imperfections.

Why is it required of us to clean our faces and hands with a little clean sand and earth if we are unable to find water (tayamum)?

Clean sand cleans your hands and face from dirt and sweat. Never forget the first audience were a desert people! Very Happy

Nowadays it doesn't seem to have any use, but when you live in a warzone or another difficult situation, these simple practices can help alot if you know them.

4:43 & 5:6
Here the use of water is alternated with a peice of clay to wipe off dirty parts of the body. It is a common practice with the farmers attending to calls of nature in open fields where no water is seen.
