Let’s look at the description of the prayer when it rains said by the Prophet Muhammad SAW, as follows:
Reporting from H. Hamdan Hamedan’s book Daily Prayers for Knocking on the Sky Door, Rasulullah SAW once said a prayer to ask for rain, when it rains, after it rains, and prays for the rain to stop. Here are the readings:
1. Prayer Asks for Rain
O Lord أَجِلٍ
Arabic-latin: Allaahummasqinaa ghaytsan mughiitsan marii-an marii’an naafi’an ghayra dharrin ‘aajilan ghayra aajil.
Meaning: “O Allah, give us rain that is evenly distributed, refreshing the body, and fertilizing plants, beneficial, not harmful. We ask for rain as soon as possible, not to delay.”
In a history it is stated, “A group of people came crying to Rasulullah SAW. They asked him to please pray for rain. Then, Rasulullah SAW said this prayer and it rained.” (HR Abu Dawud no. 1169).
2. Prayer when it Rains
O Allah, اجْعَلْهُ صَيِّبًا نَافِعًا
Arabic-latin: Allahummaj’alhu shayyiban naafi’an.
Meaning: “O Allah, make this rain useful.”
The prayer reading when it rains was said by Rasulullah SAW when he took off his clothes when it rained so that the raindrops wet part of his body. This was done because the Prophet SAW wanted to show that rain is a blessing created by Allah SWT.
3. Prayer After It Rains
مُطِرْنَا بِفَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَرَحْمَتِهِ
Arabic-latin: Muthirnaa bi-fadhlillaahi wa Rahmatih.
Meaning: “We are given rain because of the grace and mercy of Allah.”
Based on a history of hadith, Rasulullah SAW once said, “Whoever says, ‘We are given rain because of the grace and mercy of Allah’, then that person believes in Allah and does not believe in the stars.
Conversely, people who say, ‘We are given rain by this star or that star, then that person disbelieves in Me (Allah) and believes in the stars.” (HR Muslim no. 71).
4. Prayer for the Rain to Stop
O Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Merciful ابِتِ الشَّجَرِ
Arabic-latin: Allaahumma hawaa laynaa wa laa ‘alaynaa. Allaahumma ‘alal-aakaami wazh-zhiraabi, wa buthuunil-awdiyati wa manaabitisy-syajar.
Meaning: “O Allah, rain around us, not on us. O Allah, give rain to the high ground, some of the hills at the bottom of the valley and some of the land where trees grow.”
The prayer relies on a hadith narrated from Anas bin Malik RA, he narrates, “There was a group of people who came to Rasulullah SAW and asked him to pray for the rain to stop.
Apparently the rain had lasted for one week so that their livestock threatened to die and the roads were cut off. Rasulullah SAW then prayed with this prayer and the rain stopped.” (HR Bukhari no. 1014).
That is the prayer when it rains that the Prophet Muhammad said according to a number of hadith narrations. Muslims can also practice reading this prayer when it rains to be grateful for the blessings and mercy of Allah SWT.
