Intending to pray for rain, then it rains before the people start the prayer. What one should do?

 

 

If the people go out to gather for salaat al-istisqaa‘ (prayer for rain), or were intending to do so, and then it rained, then either of the following apply:

 

 

  • If they had got ready to go out and it rained before they left, then they should thank Allah (subhanahu wa taala) for His blessings and not go out.

 

  • If they had already come out, and it rained before they could pray, they should offer a prayer in gratitude to Allah, may He be exalted.
