Gratitude: Rain

Today, I am grateful for rain. 

It has been scorching hot with 36-38C and high humidity of above 70% lately so when some rain fell, I almost knelt down with gratitude.

A portion of Surah An-Nur Ayat 43 of The Holy Quran states, "Do you not see that Allah drives along the clouds, then gathers them together, then piles them up, so that you see the rain coming forth from their midst?"

In Surah Ar-Rum Ayat 48 of The Holy Quran,"Allah is He who sends the winds, so they raise the clouds, and spread them along the sky as He wills, and then break them into fragments, until you see rain drops come forth from their midst! Then when He has made them fall on whom of His slaves as He will, Lo! They rejoice!"

Indeed, the wind You created has brought clouds to form and shower us with some rain, SubhanAllah Your presence is eminently assuring. Thank you, my Lord. 


  1. It was raining on 3 consecutive mornings where I got wet every time I cycle to school. ;) But, I also grateful for the rain. Not really knowing the scientific reasons, but, looks like the season is going to change. And I'm looking for spring where all plants will start to bloom again after 'dying' in winter - like getting a new life.

    May Allah showered us with rains of blessings. Ameen.

    1. Salam Cik Hanis,

      Equinox is coming up this March 21st. Hope this spring will bring you plenty of fresh beginnings and beauty. Cannot wait to see your updates and progress, as always.

      Take good care!

  2. Salam Hampshire Mummy,

    It didn't rain on my part of town though.. I do miss the raining season. The best part of the year form me :)

    I hope it rains more this month.

    1. Salam Puan L,

      So close yet so far, such is the mystery of His creation. You managed to stay dry after work (and the collection dams managed to collect some much needed rain). Alhamdulillah for double favours!
