"o allâh let rain fall down, and water your country and animals, and spread your mercy and bring to life the dead lands. o allâh send rain that would be saving, comforting, and sprouting grass, and overwhelming vast areas sooner and later. let it be useful rain and not harmful. o allâh let it be rain of mercy and not rain of torture and chastisement. let that rain not be destructive or floody. o allâh send us down water and help to fight the enemies." [za'd al-ma'ad 3/48]
