Prayer When the Wind Blows Hard

Islamic Law Center: Hi all readers! In this article I will explain about prayer when the wind blows hard. We all already know, that the wind is one part of nature that can never be separated from us. At some time, the wind can be a cause of coolness. We can also benefit from it. But at other times, when the wind blows hard, then it can be a cause of catastrophe that harms many people.

In Islam, a person is recommended that he recite prayers when the wind blows hard. Why? Of course, because he did not know whether the wind is the wind that reads the Mercy or the wind that brings torture. By the way, what is that prayer?

As usual, before I explain about prayer when the wind blows hard, I will first quote one hadith that is specifically related to the theme of our article. The hadith I mean is as follows;

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : مَا هَبَّتِ الرِّيْحُ قَطُّ إِلَّا جَثَا النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى رَكْبَتَيْهِ وَقَالَ : اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رَحْمَةً وَلَا تَجْعَلْهَا عَذَاباً . رَوَاهُ الشَّافِعِيُّ وَالطَّبْرَانِيُّ

From Ibn Abbas radliyallahu ‘anhuma, he said, “There is no hard wind except the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam dudu on his knees and pray, O God, make it (wind) as a mercy and make it (wind) as torture.” The hadith is narrated by ash-Shafi’I and ath-Thabrani.

There are some important things related to the above hadith that we need to know;

  1. The hadith explains about how scared the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was to his Lord.
  2. The Hadith explains about the compassion of the Prophet Muhammad to his people, that he prayed to Allah that He gave mercy to them and removed the torment that would befall them.
  3. The hadith explains about prayers that should be read when the wind blows hard.

The prayers when the wind blows hard in the hadith are as follows;

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رَحْمَةً وَلَا تَجْعَلْهَا عَذَاباً . رَوَاهُ الشَّافِعِيُّ وَالطَّبْرَانِيُّ

O Lord, make it (wind) as mercy and make it (wind) as torture.
