Placing the hands on earth without rubbing them when making tayammum

Q: If one has to perform tayammum, when putting the hands on the earth, does he have to rub them or if he just places them on the ground, is that sufficient?

A: Just placing the hands on the ground is sufficient.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
