Mangaluru: Muslims pray for rains, seek divine mercy; MLA Kamath attends

coastaldigest.com news network

Mangaluru, May 15: In the wake of growing heatwave and acute water shortage in the region, a group of Muslims offered special prayers in Mangaluru today, seeking rain and prosperity.

A considerable number of women also took part in the Salat-al-Istisqa held at Nehru Maidan, in the heart of the city under the open sky. The arrangements were made by the local unit of South Karnataka Salafi Movement (SKSM).

Muhammad Shaikh Saqib Saleem al Umri, the Khateeb of Kudroli Salafi mosque, led the prayers and delivered sermon highlighting the significance of water.

Many of the devotees were found weeping while offering prayers seeking forgiveness for their sins and pleading for rains.

The Salat-al-Istisqa is a way to humble oneself before the Creator of the universe and seek forgiveness so that the rains descend. “It is a special namaz and Muslim ummah is guided to offer it when there is great scarcity of water and hope of rain dwindles,” said the Khateeb.

Mangaluru City South MLA D Vedavyasa Kamath was present at the prayer venue.

Dear Vadood,

 

I  have faith & trust in our god, so i know it will rain in June, july, aug.. But do you have faith & trust in your god?

 

it seems you are doubting that he will not send rains so you need to pray...As God has created everything he knows well what to do when & where. He doesnt need your prayers to do that. He is not a small child who needs to be reminded again and again that he has to send rains.
