Dua when it rains is taught directly by the Prophet (PBUH). In the rainy season, almost every day the soil is wet because it has been poured with rainwater. The availability of water is so abundant that no one lacks water. No wonder that rain is the grace of Allah SWT for His servants on earth. The blessings of the rain are many. Water is the source of life.
When it rains sometimes, some people even complain, even though, according to the scholars, when it rains is saa’ah ijabah, or time in kabulnya prayer. Responding to the rain as a good Muslim must do something. Not just shut up. We should do something very important by praying to God.
Hadith About Dua When Its Raining
There is a hadith narrated by Sahl bin Sa’d, he said that the Prophet PBUH said:
وَعَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «ثِنْتَانِ لَا تُرَدَّانِ أَوْ قَلَّمَا تُرَدَّانِ الدُّعَاءُ عِنْدَ النِّدَاءِ وَعِنْدَ الْبَأْسِ حِينَ يُلْحِمُ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا» وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ: «وَتَحْتَ الْمَطَرِ» . رَوَاهُ أَبُو دَاوُدَ وَالدَّارِمِيُّ إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَذْكُرْ «وَتَحْت الْمَطَر»
Sahl b. Sa’d reported God’s Messenger as saying, “Two things are not rejected, or are seldom rejected:a supplication when the call to prayer is made, and in stress when people are locked in battle.” A version has “and when rain is falling”. Abu Dawud and Darimi transmitted it, but Darimi did not mention “and when rain is falling”.
