CHAPTER: SUPPLICATION IN PRAYER FOR RAIN  

No. 1955

Anas b. Malik reported that a person entered the mosque through the door situated on theside of Daral-Qada' during Friday (prayer) and the messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was delivering the sermon while standing. He came and stood in front of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said: Messenger of Allaah, the camels died and the passages were blocked; so supplicate Allaah to send down rain upon us. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) raised his hands and then said: (O Allaah, send down rain upon us; O Allaah, send dowp rain upon us; O Allaah, send down rain upon us. Anas said: By Allaah, we did not see any cloud or any patch of it, and there was neither any house or building standing between us and the (hillock) Sal'a. There appeared a cloud in the shape of a shield from behind it, and as it (came high) in the sky it spread and then there was a downpour of rain. By Allaah, we did not see the sun throughout the week. Then (that very man) came on the coming Friday through the same door when the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was standing and delivering the sermon. He stood in front of him and said: Messenger of Allaah, our animals died and the passages blocked. Supplicate Allaah to stop the rain for us. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) again raised his hands and said: O Allaah, let it (rain) fall in our suburbs and not on us, O Allaah (send it down) on the hillocks and small mountains and the river-beds and at places where trees grow. The rain stopped, and as we stepped out we were walking in sun- shine. He (the narrator) said to Sharik: I asked Anas b. Malik if he was the same man. He said: I do not know.

No. 1956

Anas b. Malik reported: The people were in the grip of famine during the lifetime of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), and (once) as the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was delivering the sermon standing on the pulpit on Friday, a bedouin stood up and said: Messenger of Allaah, the animals died and the children suffered starvation. The rest of the hadith is the same (and the words are) that he (the Prophet) said: O Allaah, send down rain in our suburbs but not on us. He (the narrator) said: To whichever directions he pointed with his hands, the clouds broke up and I saw Medina like the opening of a (courtyard) and the stream of Qanat flowed for one month, and none came from any part (of Arabia) but with the news of heavy rainfall.

No. 1957

Anas b. Malik reported that while the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was delivering the sermon on Friday, people stood up before him and said in a loud voice: Prophet of Allaah, there is a drought and the trees have become yellow, the animals have died; and the rest of the hadith is the same, and in the narration transmitted by 'Abd al-A'la the words are:" The clouds cleard from Medina and it began to rain around it and not a single drop of rain fell in Medina. And as I looked towards Medina, I found it hollow like (the hollowness of) a basin.

No. 1958

This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Anas but with this addition:" Allaah gathered the clouds and as we (were obliged) to stay back I saw that even the strong man, impelled by a desire to go to his family, (could not do so)."

No. 1959

'Ubaidullah b. Anas b. Malik heard (his father) Anas b. Malik as saying: A bedouin came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on Friday as he was (delivering the sermon on his) pulpit; and the rest of the hadith is the same but with this addition:" I saw the cloud clearing just as a sheet is folded."

No. 1960

Anas (b. Malik) reported: It rained upon us as we were with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). The Messenger of Allaah (way sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) removed his cloth (from a part of his body) till the rain fell on it. We said: Messenger of Allaah, why did you do this? He said: It is because it (the rainfall) has just come from the Exalted Lord.
