Do not curse the wind


Question: Some people curse the wind, so what is your advice [on this matter]?

Response: This is an issue which the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ has warned about, [as occurs] in the hadeeth which has been narrated by Ubay ibn Ka’b (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) – that he ﷺ said:

«Do not curse the wind, for if you see that which displeases you, then say:
اللهم إنا نسألك من خير هذه الريح، وخير ما فيها، وخير ما أمرت به، ونعوذ بك من شر هذه الريح، وشر ما فيها، وشر ما أمرت به
O Allaah, we ask You for its goodness, the good within it, and the good it was sent with, and we seek refuge with You from its evil, the evil within it, and from the evil it was sent with.» – transmitted by at-Tirmidhee, who graded the hadeeth Hasan-Saheeh.
