Prayer for rain

It was narrated from 'Abbad bin Tamim from his paternal uncle that:

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out and prayed for rain, then he prayed two rak'ahs in which he recited loudly.

[Sunan al-Nasaa’i 1522]


The prayer for rain is termed (صلاة الاستسقاء) Salaah al-'istisqaa.


The Imaam recites loudly in it.


This is the correct opinion of al-Shaafi'i, Ahmad, Abu Thaur, and Maalik. The above hadiith is evidence for their stance.
