Allah also refuses to send rain to people who do not pay zakat (charity).

Rain is a wonderful gift that Allah s.w.t bestows on the planet.
It is referenced in the Quran in various verses, including the formation process
and how it aids life on Earth.
In Surah Ar-Rum and Surah An-Nur, Allah s.w.t emphasizes and
describes this process, saying:

اللَّهُ الَّذِي يُرْسِلُ الرِّيَاحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًا فَيَبْسُطُهُ فِي السَّمَاءِ كَيْفَ يَشَاءُ وَيَجْعَلُهُ كِسَفًا فَتَرَى الْوَدْقَ يَخْرُجُ
مِنْ خِلَالِهِ ۖ فَإِذَا أَصَابَ بِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ إِذَا هُمْ يَسْتَبْشِرُونَ


Allah sends the winds, and they agitate the clouds and spread them in the sky
however He pleases, and He breaks them apart so that rain can fall from within them.
And they quickly exult when He sends it to fall on whom He wills of His servants.

(30:48 Surah Ar-Rum)


أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُزْجِي سَحَابًا ثُمَّ يُؤَلِّفُ بَيْنَهُ ثُمَّ يَجْعَلُهُ رُكَامًا فَتَرَى الْوَدْقَ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ خِلَالِهِ وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مِنْ

جِبَالٍ فِيهَا مِنْ بَرَدٍ فَيُصِيبُ بِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَيَصْرِفُهُ عَنْ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۖ يَكَادُ سَنَا بَرْقِهِ يَذْهَبُ بِالْأَبْصَارِ


Do you not realize that Allah is the one who controls the weather?
The rain appears from within it when He gathers them and
molds them into a heap And He sends hail-filled mountains (of clouds) down from the sky, striking whom He wills and averting it from whom He wills.
Its lightning is so bright that it almost blinds you. Dua for Rain

(24:43, Surah An-Nur)


According to Ibn Umar

Peace and blessings are upon him, observed,
“Never do people withdraw alms from their money except that a portion from the sky is withheld, and it would never rain if it weren’t for the animals.” Dua for Rain

When it rains, the Prophet s.a.w. advised us to pray. He mentions in a hadith:

ثِنتانِ ما تُرَدّانِ: الدُّعاءُ عند النِّداءِ، وتحْتَ المَطَرِ

There are two duas (prayer) that are accepted:
When the call to Prayer Azan is recited, and when it rains, the Dua is said.

According to Al-Albani

The source is Mu’jam Al-Kabeer 13454, which is graded as Sahih (genuine).
Allowing the rain to fall on your skin is likewise mustahabb (recommended).

As we stood with Allah’s Messenger, it began to rain (saws).
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) removed his cloth
(from a part of his body) and waited for the rain to fall on it.
“Why did you do this, Messenger of Allah?” we asked.
He said that it was because the rain had just come from the Exalted Lord.
Sahih Muslim 898 In-book reference: Book 9, Hadith 14
Another hadith advises Muslims to make dua as the rain begins to fall.
“Seek an answer to supplication when two armies meet when the prayer is established,
and when the rain falls,” the Prophet, peace, and blessings be upon him,
 according to Makhul.
“I have learned from more than one master to seek an answer to supplication
during the time of rainfall and to establish the prayer,” Ash-Shafi’ee added.
Source: Al-Umm Ash-Shafi’ee 419 Al-Albani graded it Hasan (fair).


If you just remember one thing from this post, it would be to never miss a chance to make dua while it rains. You are free to ask Allah whatever you want. Dua for Shifa – For Health Improvement, Forgiveness from Sins Just don’t pass up the opportunity.
