Making Things Easy

Rain, Rain, Come Again!

For people who live in a desert, Rain is something which is unusual. And this once-in-a-blue-moon thing is happening in the United Arab Emirates!

Man, however, is an extremist by nature. When there is no rain, he yearns for it. And when it rains, he becomes restless and shows signs of ingratitude.

As a Muslim we need to know that our Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam not only sought rain but when it rained, he also enjoyed it as much as he could. 

How amazing it would be if we also did as the Messenger of Allah did!

Read the following hadeeths:

Abu Saeed al Khudri, one of the beloved companions of the Prophet, narrates:

“A cloud came and it rained till the roof started leaking and in those days the roof used to be of the branches of date-palms. Iqama was pronounced and I saw Allah’s Messenger (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam) prostrating in water and mud and even I saw the mark of mud on his forehead.” Sahih al Bukhari

Another great companion, Anas bin Malik, says

“I saw rain water trickling down his beard”. (Read the first hadeeth in this link)

Our glorious Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam used to make this beautiful du’aa during rain:

 اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ صَيِّبًا نَافِعًا – O Allah! Make it a Beneficial Rain. 

Visit this page for some rain-related du’aas, Inshaa’Allah

The du’aa in the picture below is the supplication to be made after the rainfall.

This du’aa is in fact an expression of one’s gratitude to one’s Creator for His blessings and mercy.

Also, we need to make more and more du’aa and seek forgiveness when it rains as it is one of the Best Times to make du’aa.

Dear brothers and sisters, if possible try to go out in rain and make prostration in water and mud and have a mark of mud on your foreheads as did our Role Model. Sal-lal-laahu-‘Ala Muhammad, Sal-lal-laahu-Alaihi-wa-sallam.

Jazakallahu Khayra for reading this post.
