عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ السِّنْدِيِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ عَنْ رُزَيْقٍ أَبِي الْعَبَّاسِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ أَتَى قَوْمٌ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ بِلَادَنَا قَدْ قُحِطَتْ وَ تَوَالَتِ السِّنُونَ عَلَيْنَا فَادْعُ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْنَا فَأَمَرَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) بِالْمِنْبَرِ فَأُخْرِجَ وَ اجْتَمَعَ النَّاسُ فَصَعِدَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) وَ دَعَا وَ أَمَرَ النَّاسَ أَنْ يُؤَمِّنُوا فَلَمْ يَلْبَثْ أَنْ هَبَطَ جَبْرَئِيلُ فَقَالَ يَا مُحَمَّدُ أَخْبِرِ النَّاسَ أَنَّ رَبَّكَ قَدْ وَعَدَهُمْ أَنْ يُمْطَرُوا يَوْمَ كَذَا وَ كَذَا وَ سَاعَةَ كَذَا وَ كَذَا فَلَمْ يَزَلِ النَّاسُ يَنْتَظِرُونَ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمَ وَ تِلْكَ السَّاعَةَ حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَتْ تِلْكَ السَّاعَةُ أَهَاجَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ رِيحاً فَأَثَارَتْ سَحَاباً وَ جَلَّلَتِ السَّمَاءَ وَ أَرْخَتْ عَزَالِيَهَا فَجَاءَ أُولَئِكَ النَّفَرُ بِأَعْيَانِهِمْ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ادْعُ اللَّهَ لَنَا أَنْ يَكُفَّ السَّمَاءَ عَنَّا فَإِنَّا كِدْنَا أَنْ نَغْرَقَ فَاجْتَمَعَ النَّاسُ وَ دَعَا النَّبِيُّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) وَ أَمَرَ النَّاسَ أَنْ يُؤَمِّنُوا عَلَى دُعَائِهِ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَسْمِعْنَا فَإِنَّ كُلَّ مَا تَقُولُ لَيْسَ نَسْمَعُ فَقَالَ قُولُوا اللَّهُمَّ حَوَالَيْنَا وَ لَا عَلَيْنَا اللَّهُمَّ صُبَّهَا فِي بُطُونِ الْأَوْدِيَةِ وَ فِي نَبَاتِ الشَّجَرِ وَ حَيْثُ يَرْعَى أَهْلُ الْوَبَرِ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رَحْمَةً وَ لَا تَجْعَلْهَا عَذَاباً.


266. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from Saleh Bin Al-Sandy, from Ja’far Bin basher, from Ruzeyq Abu Al-Abbas, who has narrated the following: Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘The people came to the Rasool Allah (saww), so they said, ‘O Rasool Allah (saww)! Our towns have drought and it has prevailed for years upon us. So supplicate to Allah (azwj) Blessed and High to Send the sky (to rain) upon us’. So the Rasool Allah (saww) ordered for the Pulpit. They brought it out, and the people gathered. The Rasool Allah (saww) ascended and supplicated, and ordered the people to say ‘Ameen’. It was not long before Jibraeel descended and said; ‘O Muhammad (saww)! Inform the people that your (saww) Lord (azwj) has Promised to them that He (azwj) would Make it rain on such and such a day, and at such and such a time’. So the people did not cease to look out for that day and that particular time, until that time came up. Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Excited a wind, so it raised clouds which covered the sky, and released the rain. So those individuals came with their rich ones to the Prophet (saww). They said, ‘O Rasool Allah (saww), Supplicate to Allah (azwj) for us to withhold the sky (stop the rain) from us, for we are about to drown. So the people gathered, and the Prophet (saww) supplicated, and ordered the people that they should say ‘Ameen’ upon his (saww) supplication. A man from the people said, ‘O Rasool Allah (saww), make us hear it, for all what you (saww) are saying, we cannot hear’. So he (saww) said; ‘Say, ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Around us and not upon us. Our Allah (azwj)! Let it pour in the middle of the valleys, and in the growth of the trees, and where the shepherds pasture. Our Allah (azwj)! Make it to be a Mercy, and do not Make it to be a Punishment’.
