Allah gives the rain

  On the authority of Zayd bin khalid Aljuhaniyy (may Allah be pleased with him), who said the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him led the morning prayer for us at Al-Hudaybiyah following rainfall during the night, when the prophet (pbuh) finished, He faced the people and said to them: Do you know what your lord has said?, they said Allah and His Messenger know best. He said: this morning one of My servants became a believer in Me, and one a disbeliever, as for him who said: we have been given rain by virtue of Allah and his mercy, that one is a believer in Me, a disbeliever in the stars (*), and as for him who said: we have been given rain by such and such a star that one is a disbeliever in Me, a believer in the stars.

(*)- The pre-islamic Arabs believed that rain was brought about by the movement of stars.

     This hadith draws attention to the fact that whatever be the direct cause of such natural phenomena as rain, it is Allah, the Almighty, who is the Disposer of all things.

It was related by Al-Bukhari (also by Malik, and al-Nasa'i).


 Allah Azza wa Galla stated in many verses of the Holy Quran that we have been given rain by His virtue and His mercy, for example in Surat Ala'araf aya 57 Allah said that it is He who sends the wind carrying a good tidings heralding His mercy until when they have carried heavy rain-clouds, and Allah drive that clouds to a dead land, and make it rain therein, and with that rain He bring forth of all the fruits, then Allah stated that the example of the rain and the dead land is the same way that He will bring forth the dead.

 Allah often mentions this example in the Holy Quran when he mention the day of resurrection and how He will bring life to the dead, and He said to us: so that you may be reminded (observe advise).
