Raindrops of Mercy

As Salamu Alaykoum!

I have always loved rain. Since a very young age I was told to make du'a when it rained. I never thought to ask why, but after coming across the following verse, from the Quran, I fell in love with rain even more.
وَهُوَ الَّذِي يُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا قَنَطُوا وَيَنْشُرُ رَحْمَتَهُ وَهُوَ الْوَلِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ
And He it is Who sendeth down the saving rain after they have despaired, and spreadeth out His mercy. He is the Protecting Friend, the Praiseworthy.
(Quran 42: 28)
The next time it rains be thankful because rain is mercy*. Do not complain of the coming of rain, but rather rejoice and take the opportunity to make du'a.

WasSalaamu Alaykoum

*The well-being of the entire environment depends on it.
