When it rains, say a prayer


O Son, it's raining in this city where I am temporarily stationed as a musafir for I know not how long I will be here.
That's the nature of our life, we walk and we stop under the shade of a tree and then we walk some more.

When it rains, I usually pray:
Allahumma soyyiban nafi'a.
O Allah, pour that which is beneficial.

And so must you.
When it rains, do say a prayer!

  1. Let it pour Ezza
    Let it pour
    Like the morning rain
    Welcoming the sun
    How generous the heart can be
    Beckoning men to the light
    To the light of being.
