|Upon Rainfall (184)|
|Zayd bin Khălid 'Al-Juhaniyyu said: The Messenger of Allah led us in the morning prayer in Hudaybiya ([following a night in which it rained]) Then when he had come out of his prayer,
he approached the people, and then said: "Do you know what your Lord has said?" They said: "Allah and His Messenger know best."
He said: "He said: This morning some of my bondservants have become believers in Me and some unbelievers in Me. As for him
who said: We have been rained upon by the benevolence of Allah, and His Mercy, that is a believer in me, unbeliever in the
star. And as for him who said: We have been rained upon due to such and such star setting at the rising of another [Star foreboding
rain], then that is an unbeliever in Me, believer in the star." |

|Upon Rainfall (185)|
|'Anas said: A man entered the mosque on a Friday, and the Messenger of Allah was standing in deliverance of a speech, so he said: O Messenger of Allah! The properties have perished, and the means have
desisted, so petition Allah to rescue us with rain. So the Messenger of Allah raised his hands, then he said: 'Allăhumma 'aghithnă, 'Allăhumma 'aghithnă (199) |
'Anas said: By Allah we saw neither cloud nor pieces of cloud in the sky, and there were no buildings
or homes between us and Sal'in [a mountain in the northwest of Madeenah]. Then from behind that mountain a cloud came out.
Then when it took a central position in the sky it started to spread, then it rained, and no by Allah we did not see the sun
for a week. Then a man came in from that door on the following Friday, and the Messenger was standing in deliverance of a
speech, he then said: O Messenger of Allah! The properties have perished, and the means have desisted, so ask Allah to withhold
the rain from us. So the Prophet raised his hands and then said: 'Allăhumma hawălaynă wa lă `alaynă, 'allăhumma `ală 'al-'akămi wath-thirăbi, wa butoonil-'awdiyati,
wa manăbitish-shajari (200)
so it left, and we went out walking in the sun.
(199) O my 'ilăh rescue us with rain, O my 'ilăh rescue us with rain.
(200) O my 'ilăh around us but not upon us, O my 'ilăh onthe hills and the small mountains,
and on the interior of valleys, and the growing places of trees. [Notice politeness in not asking for rain to stop]
