RAIN is a sign of Allah’s mercy, providence and grace.

The following Ahadith explain the Sunnah of Rasulullah ﷺ during rain:

It is recommended (Sunnah) to allow the rain to fall down upon us. It is mentioned in the Hadith:


We were with Nabi ﷺ when rain fell upon us. Nabi ﷺ opened his garment a bit so that the rain could touch his skin. We asked “O Rasulullah , why do you do this?” He replied, “Because it has just recently come from Allah.”*

(Sahih Muslim Vol.3 Pg.442 #898 Darul Fawaid)

We should recite the following Duaa:*

اللَّهُمَّ صَيِّبًا نَافِعًا


Allahumma Sayyiban Naafi’a


O Allah! Make it a copious, beneficial rain.

(Sahih Bukhari 2/675 #1032 Darul Bashair)

During HEAVY RAIN recite the following Duaa:

اللَّهُمَّ حَوَالَيْنَا وَلاَ عَلَيْنَا


Allahumma Hawa Layna Wa La ‘Alayna.


“O Allah! Make it rain around us and not upon us. O Allah! Upon the mountains and the hills, down the valleys, and to the roots of the trees.”

(Sahih Bukhari 2/656 #1014 Darul Bashair)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

We should make Duaa to Allah to give us BENEFICIAL RAIN and also to send down rain to those places experiencing DROUGHT and INSUFFICIENT RAIN.
