Rain in the Light of Qur'an-Hadith: 6 Things a Believer Should Do During Rain

Rain in the Light of Qur'an-Hadith: 6 Things a Believer Should Do During Rain
 
Sujla Sufla Gray Shyamla is our favorite motherland Bangladesh. In this country of conspiracy season, the rain has come with the gift of blessings. Allah Ta'ala has drowned us in innumerable blessings. When one thinks of the blessings of Allah, the body and mind bow in prostration of gratitude. One of the blessings of Allah Ta'ala is rain. And with the rain from the sky, Allah completes many processes. Through this process our sustenance is generated or distributed. Basically, this rain does not fall without the command of Allah. It is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth, and sends down water from the sky, then brings forth for you sustenance thereof, and commands the boat to obey you, so that it may sail the seas by His command and make the rivers subservient to you '(Surah Ibrahim: verse 32). ).

According to the hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) once went out in the rain and poured water on his body. He was asked, why did he do that? Then he said, the rain has been described as a blessing from Allah Ta'ala. If Allah Ta'ala is more pleased with the servant, He gives him 3 things. They are- daughters; Guests and rain. There is more rainfall in the monsoon season. When it rains a lot, many people talk about different things. But during the rainy season, the Prophet (peace be upon him) proved 6 things to do. Dear Prophet (peace be upon him) Concerning rain and thunder, Allah, the Almighty, says: "If My servants had obeyed My command, I would have rained on them at night and given them sun in the morning, and I would never have heard their thunder.(Musnad Ahmad) Things to do during the rainy season: - There are 6 things to do during the rainy season. The beneficial and harmful aspects of rain have also come up in it.

These actions are clear in several narrations of Hadith:

(1) Praying for welfare during rain When it is raining, it is necessary to pray for benefit from rain. When it started raining, Rasulullah (peace be upon him) used to recite a short single prayer of 3 words for the welfare and benefit. Then-pronunciation: 'Allahumma Sayyeban Nafia. ' (Bukhari, Nasai)
Meaning: 'O Allah! May the rain that you give in torrents be good for us. If this prayer is recited, Allah will remove the harmful aspects of rain and will give good and beneficial rain.

(2) Wet for a short time in the rain

Allah Ta'ala has mentioned many benefits of rain in Quranul Kareem. Rain is a blessing for people. In order to get the mercy and blessings of Allah, sometimes there is a hint of rain. It has been narrated in the hadith-

Hazrat Anas (ra) narrates, 'It started raining once while we were with Rasulullah (sa). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) lifted some parts of his clothes so that some rain water would fall on his body. When asked about the reason for doing so, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "This (rain) has just come from Allah." (Muslim)

(3) Praying when it starts raining

Rain is also one of the special times when prayers are accepted. Therefore, when it starts raining, it is necessary to raise one's hands to Allah to offer one's known prayers.

The beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, 'The dua of two times is never returned. One- Doa made after Azan. And two - the prayer made during the rain. '(Al-Hakim)

(4) Praying for rain and seeking refuge from harm It is also sunnat to pray to Allah for protection from the loss of heavy rain of storms and rains. In a long hadith-

Hazrat Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that a man entered the mosque on Friday through the door of Darul Qaza (place of judgment). At that time Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) was standing and giving khutbah. The man stood facing the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and said-

'O Messenger of Allah! Wealth was wasted and roads were closed. Pray to Allah that He may give us rain. Then Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him)He raised both hands (3 times) and prayed-

Pronunciation: 'Allahummaskbina, Allahummaskbina, Allahummaskbina.'

Meaning: 'O Allah! Give us rain. O Allah! Give us rain. O Allah! Give us rain. Hazrat Anas (RA) said, by Allah! We then looked up at the sky, there were no clouds, not even the slightest piece of cloud. But there was no house between us and Salah mountain.

He said that suddenly a cloud like a shield came up from that side of Salwar and spread in the middle of the sky. Then it began to rain heavily. By God! We did not see the sun that day. The next Friday, a man entered through the door. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was standing and giving the sermon. The man stood in front of him and said- 'O Messenger of Allah! Wealth was destroyed and roads were cut off. So pray to Allah to stop the rain. Hazrat Anas (RA) said, Allah's Messenger (SAW)Then he raised both hands and prayed (thus): 'Allahumma hawalaina wa la alaina; Allahumma alal akami wal jhibali wal ajhami waz jirabi wal aodiyati wa manabitish shajhari. 'Meaning' O Allah! Around us, not on us. O Allah! Rain on hills, plateaus, valleys and forests. Hazrat Anas (ra) said, "Then the rain stopped and we went out and started walking in the sun." He said, "I do not know." (Bukhari)

(5) Praying during thunderstorms

Lightning is a small sign of the great power of Allah. This makes people upset. The death of the one who is struck by lightning is almost certain. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: It has been narrated in the hadith that Hazrat Abdullah bin Omar (RA) narrated from his father, Rasulullah (SAW)Whenever he heard a thunderbolt or saw lightning, he would say:

Meaning: 'O our Lord! Don't kill us because of your anger and don't destroy us with your punishment. Rather, cover us with the veil of forgiveness and safety before that. ' It says that the person who will recite this tasbih-

Pronunciation: 'Subhanallahi wa Bihamdihi.'Meaning: He will be free from lightning strikes. (Musannefe Abi Shaybay)

(6) Expressing gratitude for the beneficial rain. If the rain stops, it is sunnat to be beneficial for all, or if the rain stops, it is sunnat to make this prayer to Allah. Rasulullah (sa)He used to say, 'Anyone who recites this prayer (of gratitude after rain) believes in me and disbelieves in the star (in the power of the stars). Tahalo-utterance: 'Mutbirna bifadillahi wa rahmatihi' meaning: 'We have received the rain of Allah's mercy and compassion.'(Bukhari and Muslim) So the believing Muslim should, during the rainy season and after the rain, it is important to follow the 6 Sunnahs mentioned in the hadith. Finally, may Allaah grant the Muslim Ummah the Tawfeeq to perform the duties properly during and after the rains. Give tawfiq to follow the hadith. Amen.
