My father (rahima-hullaah) was on the roof of the masjid repairing one of the drain pipes, when one of the passers by asked him…
It rained over the grave of Harim ibn Hayyaan on the day he died, and then vegetation began to sprout [forthwith].
Is it legislated to supplicate [to Allaah] during rainfall; did the Prophet sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam or his companions do so?
During the time of severe cold and heavy rain, when the time for prayer approaches whilst we are out, we find it difficult to have a wash and do wudhoo with water; are we permitted to do tayammum if we are unable to find anything to heat up the water with?
With regard to the prayer for rain, if a group [of people] enter [the masjid] and [find] the imaam is giving the sermon, after already having just completed the two rak’ah prayer [for rain in congregation], should they [now] offer the prayer [for rain themselves] or should they sit down [with the rest of the congregation] for the sermon? Also, is [the rain prayer] to be made up [if missed]? And [if it is], should they offer the prayer in congregation?
