He emphasized that one must show the need for Him for rain and seek forgiveness from Him, Glory be to Him, because it is one of the causes of rain.

Dr Al Shammari further added that the prayer for rain is a prayer to repent and seek forgiveness.

He also urged worshippers to give zakat and charity as it is considered as a means of purification of wealth and soul.

Several other citizens and residents performed the rain-seeking prayer at different mosques around the country. The prayer took place this morning at 5:54 am local time.
