Malawians Muslims are attributing the coming of the rains to the prayers they have been holding for the past three days asking God to open the downpour to this southern African country which relies on rain-fed agriculture.
Until Tuesday night Malawi especially in the southern region has been experiencing dry spell although weather history show that the region always becomes the first in the country to register rainfall.
This forced Islamic Theologians Majilis Ulama on Sunday to ask Muslims to hold three-day special prayers for the rains.
An official of Majilis Ulama Sheikh Dinala Chabulika told a malawimuslims.com website that Prophet Muhammad (May peace be upon him) asked Muslims to observe a certain prayer when they see there is no any sign of rain.
“So, we asked everyone to do that after each obligatory prayer before we have a main function on Thursday. However, fortunately, Allah has answered our prayers even before the main prayer event,” said Chabulika.
Malawi President Peter Mutharika also asked various denominations to hold national players for the rains from this Friday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
