5 Reasons for Drought and the Solution
Nabi(SAW) sought protection for his Sahabah (RA) from them being caught up in 5 things:
1. When zina becomes open & common, then Allah Taala will involve you in such diseases that your forefathers had never heard of.
2. When people will cheat & deceive, then Allah Taala afflicts them with famine & the oppression of rulers. Often an artisan does his work properly & diligently, but he is not paid properly.
3. When people don’t pay zakaah properly, then Allah Ta'ala la deprives them of rain. It's time to take stock of our zakaah & ensure that it is given to eligible recipients.
4. When people break their covenants & agreements then Allah Taala overpowers them with an enemy that will take away their wealth by force. As citizens of this country we have an obligation to comply & not violate any of the laws of the country.
5. When rulers do not legislate according to Shariah, then Allah Taala will cause in-fighting & killing each other, as we see today, the bloodshed in the Middle East.
