Rain is a blessing from Allah and is crucial for the growth and nourishment of all living things on earth. Muslims around the world make dua (prayers) for rain during times of drought or when the need for water arises. One such dua is the “Barish ki Dua” which is specifically made for the purpose of requesting rain.
The Barish ki Dua can be recited in any language, but its translation in English is as follows: “Oh Allah, we ask you for the good in this rain, its continuance, its abundance, and for us to be able to make use of it. Oh Allah, make it a means of growth for us, and not destruction.”
It is important to note that making dua for rain should not be taken lightly and should only be done when there is a genuine need for it. It is also important to remember that all good things come from Allah and we should always be grateful for His blessings.
When reciting the Barish ki Dua, it is recommended to face the direction of the Qibla (the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca) and to raise one’s hands while making the dua. It is also a good practice to make this dua during the time of Salah (prayer) as it is believed that dua made during Salah is more likely to be accepted.
In addition to making dua for rain, it is also important to conserve and make wise use of the water that we have. This can be done by taking simple steps such as fixing leaks, using water-saving devices, and avoiding activities that waste water.
