Istisqaa’ (Rain Prayer):
This prayer is a means of seeking rain from Allaah The Almighty. The Prayer of Rain is ordained during times of drought and times when rain stops to fall.
The Prayer of Rain is like the Prayer of ‘Eed.
Muslim may supplicate Allaah The Almighty for rain in various ways. For instance, he may supplicate Allaah The Almighty in a congregational prayer. He may also supplicate Him by invoking him during the sermon of Jumu‘ah Prayer. Furthermore, it may be by invoking Him with neither prayer nor sermon.
