Qtar Rains Today

On the 3rd December, the Emir of Qatar urged people to make the Istisqaa prayer (rain prayer). This prayer was performed in the open mussolla with the public. Among the jemaah were numerous sheikhs and ministers.

In the sermon by Sheikh Thaqeel, he urged the worshipers to repent and continuously seek for His forgiveness. Clean our money. Indeed, all of us need to be reminded always.

For the newspaper clip in the Gulf Times click this link.

Qatar is one of the countries whose rain is very scarce. Usually rain would fall in the winter season sometime in December to March.So rain in the gulf countries, unlike in Malaysia, is truly heaven sent, a blessing from the Almighty, Ar Razaq. So much so that when we were in Taman Negara last summer, the arabs were dancing in the rain when it rained.

However of late, the little rain has reduce to become only droplets.

They are relating to little rain or no rain as a sign of Allah's wrath. A disaster to befallen.
Astaghfirullah. Astaghfirullah. Astaghfirullah.

I am turning on the water tap, looking at the free flow of water. The water that they churn from the sea and have it distiledl and sent out to public. Do we all think technologies can save us from Allah's wrath?

But today, Qatar was blessed with rain nearly the whole day long. Such blessings indeed. Alhamdullilah.

Even though rain can be a bit of nuisance here in the country where flash flood is everywhere (there is no drain here), my house wall would be soaked with water (yalah gypsum aje) but the blessing overcome all these.

Alhamdullilah for the rain. We the Malaysians can learn from this I believe.
Fear Allah. Seek His forgiveness. Clean our money. Beware of Allah's wrath.
