S19 – His Supplication in Asking for Water during a DroughtS19 – His Supplication in Asking for Water during a Drought

O God,

water us with rain,

unfold upon us Your mercy

through Your copious rain

from the driven clouds,

so that Your goodly earth may grow

on all horizons!

 

Show kindness to Your servants

through the ripening of the fruit,

revive Your land

through the blossoming of the flowers,

and let Your angels – the noble scribes – be witness

to a beneficial watering from You,

lasting in its abundance,

plenty in its flow,

heavy, quick, soon,

 

 

through which You revive what has vanished,

bring forth what is coming,

and provide plentiful foods,

through heaped up, wholesome, productive clouds,

in reverberating layers,

the rain’s downpour

not without cease,

the lightning’s flashes

not without fruit!

 

 

O God,

give us water through rain,

helping, productive, fertilizing,

widespread, plentiful, abundant,

bringing back the risen,

restoring the broken!

 

 

O God,

give us water with a watering through which You will

make the stone hills pour,

fill the cisterns,

flood the rivers,

make the trees grow,

bring down prices in all the lands,

invigorate the beasts and the creatures,

perfect for us the agreeable things of provision,

make grow for us the fields,

let flow for us the teats,

and add for us strength to our strength!

 

 

O God,

make not the cloud’s shadow over us a burning wind,

allow not its coldness to be cutting,

let not its pouring down upon us be a stoning,

and make not its waters for us bitter!

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household

and provide us with the blessings of the heavens and the earth!

You are powerful over everything
