|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
Upon Rainfall (184)
| Zayd bin Khãlid '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."
