Let’s pray for Rain
Due to a severe drought in the country people are facing problem all over and it is essential for us to pray for the blessing of rain.
Whenever we face uncommon situations we should review ourselves and do Isthighar to rectify ourselves as it is the way of our Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him). By this way Allah provides forgiveness and His blessings.
Water is an essential one for human being. We understand the difficulty when there is either shortage or no water at all. Therefore, we all should repent through “Tawba” for our sins and supplicate to Allah for the removal of drought and the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama requests all in the drought affected areas to organize prayers in search of rain and recite the related Duas.
Allahu Ta’ala points out thus the advice of Prophet Nuh (Alaihissalam) to his people:
“So I said, Pray to your Lord for your forgiveness, Indeed He is Very-Forgiving, and He will cause the heavens to rain upon you in abundance, and will help you with riches and sons, and will cause gardens to grow for you, and cause rivers to flow for you.” (Nuh: 10-12)
Some recitals of Dua by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) at the time of supplicating for rain:
اللَّهُمَّ اسْقِنا غيثًا مغيثًا مريئًا مريعًا نافعاً غَيْرَ ضارٍ، عاجِلاً غَيْرَ آجِلٍ - رواه أبو داود 1169
اللهم أغثنا ، اللهم أغثنا ، اللهم أغثنا - رواه مسلم 897
اللهم اسق عبادك ، وبهائمك ، وانشر رحمتك وأحي بلدك الميت - رواه أبو داود 1176
