When a Strong Wind Blows

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Whenever the winds would blow, Rasulullah’s (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) colour would change and he would become worried. Upon enquiry, he would say: “I fear that it could be a punishment for my Ummah.”

Thereafter, if it rained calmly, his relief was to such an extent, that he would even go out, into the rain, open his chest or some part of his body and let the rain fall on his body so as to take blessing from it. Upon enquiry, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) said: “Indeed it (the rain) has just recently come from my Lord.”

[Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2080]
