His Supplication in Asking for Water during a Drought

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي الِاسْتِسْقَاءِ

أللَّهُمَّ اسْقِنَـا الْغَيْثَ،
O God, water us with rain,
وَانْشُرْ عَلَيْنَا رَحْمَتَـكَ بِغَيْثِكَ الْمُغْدِقِ
unfold upon us Thy mercy through Thy copious rain
مِنَ الْسَّحَابِ الْمُنْسَـاقِ لِنَبَاتِ أَرْضِكَ الْمُونِقِ فِي جَمِيـعِ الآفَاقِ،
from the driven clouds, so that Thy goodly earth may grow on all horizons!
وَامْنُنْ عَلَى عِبَادِكَ بِإينَاعِ الثَّمَرَةِ،
Show kindness to Thy servants through the ripening of the fruit,
وأَحْيِ بِلاَدَكَ بِبُلُوغِ الزَّهَرَةِ.
revive Thy land through the blossoming of the flowers,
وَأَشْهِدْ مَلائِكَتَكَ الْكِرَامَ السَّفَرَةَ
and let Thy angels - the noble scribes - be witness
بِسَقْي مِنْكَ نَافِع دَائِم غُزْرُهُ
to a beneficial watering from Thee, lasting in its abundance,
َواسِعٌ دِرَرُهُ وَابِل سَرِيع عَاجِل
plenty in its flow, heavy, quick, soon,
تُحْيِي بِهِ مَا قَدْ مَات، وَتَرُدُّ بهِ مَا قَدْ فَاتَ،
through which Thou revivest what has died, returnest what has vanished,
وَتُخْرِجُ بِهِ مَا هُوَ آت،
bringest forth what is coming,
وَتُوَسِّعُ بِهِ فِي الأَقْوَاتِ،
and providest plentiful foods,
سَحَاباً مُتَرَاكِماً هَنِيئاً مَرِيئاً طَبَقاً
through heaped up, wholesome, productive clouds, in reverberating layers,
مُجَلْجَلاً غَيْرَ مُلِثٍّ وَدْقُهُ،
the rain's downpour not without cease,
وَلاَ خُلَّب بَرْقُهُ.
the lightning's flashes not without fruit!
أللَّهُمَّ اسْقِنَا غَيْثاً مَغيثَاً مَرِيعاً مُمْرِعاً عَرِيْضَاً،
O God, give us water through rain, helping, productive, fertilizing, widespread,
وَاسِعاً غَزِيراً تَرُدُّ بِهِ النَّهِيضَ وَتَجْبُرُ بِهِ الْمَهِيضَ.
plentiful, abundant, bringing back the risen, restoring the broken!
أللَّهُمَّ اسْقِنَا سَقْياً تُسِيلُ مِنْهُ الظِّرابَ،
O God, give us water with a watering through which Thou wilt make the stone hills pour,
وَتَمْلاءُ مِنْهُ الْجِبَابَ،
fill the cisterns,
وَتُفَجِّرُ بِهِ الأنْهَارَ،
flood the rivers,
وَتُنْبِتُ بِهِ الأشْجَارَ
make the trees grow,
وَتُرْخِصُ بِهِ الأسْعَارَ فِي جَمِيع الأمْصَارِ،
bring down prices in all the lands,
وَتَنْعَشُ بِهِ البَهَائِمَ وَالْخَلْقَ،
invigorate the beasts and the creatures,
وَتُكْمِلُ لَنَا بِهِ طَيِّبَاتِ الرِّزْقِ،
perfect for us the agreeable things of provision,
وَتُنْبِتُ لَنَا بِهِ الزَّرْعَ،
make grow for us the fields,
وَتُدِرُّ بِهِ الضَّرْعَ،
let flow for us the teats,
وَتَزِيدُنَا بِهِ قُوَّةً إلَى قُوَّتِنَا.
and add for us strength to our strength!
أللَّهُمَّ لا تَجْعَلْ ظِلَّهُ عَلَيْنَا سَمُوماً
O God, make not the cloud's shadow over us a burning wind,
وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ بَرْدَهُ عَلَيْنَا حُسُوماً،
allow not its coldness to be cutting,
وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ صَوْبَهُ عَلَيْنَا رُجُوماً،
let not its pouring down upon us be a stoning,
وَلا تَجْعَلْ مَاءَهُ عَلَيْنَا أُجَاجـاً.
and make not its waters for us bitter!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد،
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
وَارْزُقْنَا مِنْ بَرَكَاتِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضِ،
and provide us with the blessings of the heavens and the earth!
إنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْء قَدِيرٌ .
"Thou art powerful over everything"! (3:26)
