Hadrat Sayyiduna Zaid bin Khalid Jehni – may Allah be pleased with him – mentions that once the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – led the Fajr Salaah during the occasion of Hudaybiyah while it was rained the night before.
When he had completed the Salaah, he asked the Muslims, “Are you aware of what Your Creator has declared at this moment?”
They replied that Allah and His Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – knew better.
The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – declared, “Allah Almighty has Declared that, ‘This morning some servant of Mine have spent the morning in Imaan and some have spent it in Kufr. Whoever has said that, ‘the rain has appeared through the Divine Grace and Mercy of Allah, has brought faith in Me. Those who believed otherwise, (in other words, who say that because of certain movement of the stars, the rain has appeared), that person has refuted Me and has brought faith on the stars.” (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)
