Praise be to Allah


It was reported by ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that when the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,’ Allahumma sayyiban naafi’an {O Allah, do -the) a beneficial rain). “Reported by al-Bukhaari (1032)

According to a version narrated by Abu Dawood (5099), he said: “Allahumma sayyiban hanee’an (O Allah, make it a healthy rain)”. What al-Albaani called saheeh.

The word sayyib refers to the pouring rain. Allah, whether exalted, says (interpretation of meaning): “Or like a heavy rain [sayyib] from heaven” [al-Baqarah 2:19].

See: Ma’aalim as-Sunan of Al-Khattaabi (4/146)

It is a mustahabb to expose oneself to the rain and to let a part of it flow on one’s body, because of Anas’ proven relationship (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: When we were with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) it rained. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) removed part of his clothing so that rain could fall on him. We said: O Messenger of Allah, why did you do that? He said, “Because he has come from his Lord, let him be glorified and exalted.” Narrated by Muslim (898).

When the rain became strong, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allahumma hawaalayna wa la alayna; Allahumma ‘ala al-aakaami wa’z-ziraabi, wa butoon al-awdiyah wa manaabit ash-shajar (O Allah, may the rain fall) around us and not on us, O Allah, let him fall, the little mountains and the hills, the bottom of the valleys and the places where the trees grow) “, recounted by al-Bukhaari (1014).

With regard to the du’aa when one hears thunder, it is proved by ‘Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr (may Allah be pleased with him) that he stops speaking when he hears ton and says: Subhaan alladhi yusabbih ar-ra’du bi hamdihi wa’l-malaa’ikatu min kheefatihi (Glory to whom thunder glorifies and praises, and angels because of his fear) [cf. ar-Ra ‘d 13:13]. Then he said: This is a severe warning to the inhabitants of the earth. Narrated by al-Bukhaari in al-Adab al-Mufrad (723); Maalik in al-Muwatta ‘(3641). Its isnad was classified as saheeh by Nawawi-year at al-Adhkaar (235) and by al-Albaani at Sahee al-Adab al-Mufrad (556).

We do not know of any report of the Prophet’s blessings and blessings on him.

Likewise, there is no known dhikr or ‘aa’ from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for seeing lightning, to our knowledge. And Allah knows better.


The time when rain falls is a time of God’s divine generosity and mercy towards His slaves when the means of goodness are abundant and it is a moment when we think that Duaa’s answer will be satisfied.

It is stated in Sahl ibn Sa’d’s hadeeth that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Two (du’aa) are not rejected: du’aa ‘at the time of the call to prayer and dua ‘at the moment of the rain. “

Narrated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (2534); at Tabaraani at al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer (5756); classified as saheeh by al-Albaani in Sahih al-Jaami ‘(3078).

And Allah knows better.
