I’m not sure if there were a significant relation between what I feel inside and dull weather outside these past weeks. I face grey clouds, a long rainy days sometimes heavy rains pour from the sky. I like rain , better than a dry over-warmed days. Listening to the rain drops and breathing the scent of soil and grass. Though, perfect weather for me is a sunny day but its sunshine trapped by giant white clouds. When it rains, people sometimes remind themselves for a melancholic moments. Imagining things through the water outside the house. Drawing assorted shapes from the mist formed on surface of the window glass. Or just catch some fantasy dreams in sleep like flying to the moon. Others probably just awake pampered by a cup of hot chocolate, books and DVDs while a cat purr beside. Luxury.
Rain falling is amazing. Allah SWT explains rain in Qur’an verses as stated below :
"And He who sends down (from time to time) water from the sky in due measure, and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead. Even so will you be raised (from the dead)." [Az-Zukhruf:11]
"We send down pure water from the sky. That with it We may give life to a dead land, and slake the thirst of things We have created, cattle and men in great numbers." [Al-Furqan:48- 49]
"And We send down from the sky rain chartered with blessing, and We produce therewith gardens and grain for harvests." [Qaf :9]
Beautiful…Subhanallah wal hamdulillah…
PS. Floods did happen in several areas apart from my neighborhood. It is our failure to take care the land and environment. Trees are gone, exploitated. Rivers are poisoned by industrial chemical waste and trash everywhere. Nature cries and demands human’s love. Please be aware to our earth we live in.
