His wealth will not ignore a dusty hand.
Showers bring flowers to arid hilltops.
The Mantle Adorned, verse 150.
…SubhanAllah the rains have been unprecedented this year. If showers bring flowers to arid hilltops, then these downpours bring forests to paved streets…
…the following photos were on two different days of Makkan rains, apart from chaos on the day of arriving.
Mercy rains and thunder claps graced Madinatun Nabi last night, but not to the extent that the Bride of the Sea, Jeddah is currently flooded. Reports from friends saying traffic in some areas has been at a stand stil for hours and the Makkah/Jeddah road closed with warnings to drivers not to attempt to enter Jeddah unless absolutely necessary. Many schools warned parents not to send children to school, even though it is exam time, while other schools sent students home without them finishing their exams.
It was related to me that one of the signs heralding the End of Times is that rains will no longer be harbingers of mercy, but will be a punishment, bringing destruction and devastation. And Allah Ta’ala knows best. Astaghfirullah.
May we seriously reflect upon the severity of the conditions that are across the world and shift our attention from all that is not favoured by Allah Ta’ala to all that He loves from us, Ameen.
O Allah we cry to You, and we implore
You not to turn us away from Your door
For we are drowning, rescue us to the shore
Send Your blessings on us like a downpour
All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
