49. The reason due to which the robe is turned during the Prayer for the rainBack to book
حدثنا محمد بن الحسن قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن ابى طالب عبد الله بن الصلت قال: حدثنا أبو حمزة انس بن عياض الليثى، عن جعفر ابن محمد عن ابيه عليهما السلام ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله كان إذا استسقيى ينظر إلى السماء ويحول ردائه عن يمينه إلى يساره، ومن يساره إلى يمينه، قال: قلت له ما معنى ذلك؟ قال: علامة بينه وبين أصحابه يحول الجدب خصباء.
1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Abu Talib Abdullah Bin Al Salt, from Abu Hamza Ans Bin Ayaz Al Lays, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far (a.s.) Ibn Muhammad (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.), that Rasool-Allah (saww), whenever he (saww) used to pray for the rain, looked towards the sky and turned his (saww) robe from his (saww) right to his (saww) left, and from his (saww) left to his (saww) right’. I said, ‘And what is the meaning of that?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘A sign between him (saww) and his (saww) companions, for the transformation of the aridity (dryness) to the greenery’.
حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجلويه، عن عمه محمد بن ابى القاسم عن احمد بن ابى عبد الله عن ابيه، عن ابن ابى عمير عمن ذكره عن ابى عبد الله (ع) قال: سألته لاي علة حول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في صلاة الاستسقاء ردائه الذي على يمينه على يساره والذي على يساره على يمينه؟ قال: أراد بذلك تحول الجذب خصبا.
2. Muhammad Bin Ali Majaylawiya, from his uncle Muhammad Bin Abu Al Qasim, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from the one who mentioned it, (The narrator says), ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘For which reason did Rasool-Allah (saww) turn his (saww) robe during the prayer for the rain, that which was upon his (saww) right to his (saww) left, and that which was upon his (saww) left to his (saww) right?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘He (saww) intended by that to transform the aridity to the greenery’.
