‘Anas said: By Allah we saw neither cloud nor pieces of cloud in the sky, and there were no buildings or homes between us and Sal’in [a mountain in the northwest of Madeenah]. Then from behind that mountain a cloud came out. Then when it took a central position in the sky it started to spread, then it rained, and no by Allah we did not see the sun for a week. Then a man came in from that door on the following Friday, and the Messenger was standing in deliverance of a speech, he then said: O Messenger of Allah! The properties have perished, and the means have desisted, so ask Allah to withhold the rain from us. So the Prophet raised his hands and then said: ‘Allahumma hawalayna wa la `alayna, ‘allahumma `ala ‘al-‘akami wath-thirabi, wa butoonil-‘awdiyati, wa manabitish-shajari (200) so it left, and we went out walking in the sun.
(199) O my ‘ilah rescue us with rain, O my ‘ilah rescue us with rain.
(200) O my ‘ilah around us but not upon us, O my ‘ilah onthe hills and the small mountains, and on the interior of valleys, and the growing places of trees. [Notice politeness in not asking for rain to stop].
