“ O Allah’s Apostle, livestock are dying, and the roads are cut off. Please pray to Allah for rain.”

So Allah’s Apostle (SAW) raised both his hands and said, اَللّٰھُمَّ اَغِثْنَا، اَللّٰھُمَّ اَغِثْنَا، اَللّٰھُمَّ اَغِثْنَا.

Then a big cloud like a shield appeared from behind it ( i.e., Silas Mountain), and when it came in the middle of the sky, it spread and then rained. By Allah, we could not see the sun for a week.
