(1006) Invocation of the Prophet : O Allah! Send (drought-famine) years on them (pagans of Makkah) like the (drought-famine) years of (Prophet) Yusuf (Joseph)

Narrated Abu Huraira;: Whenever the Prophet (p.b.u.h) lifted his head from the bowing in the last rak`a he used to say: O Allah! Save `Aiyash bin Abi Rabi`a. O Allah! Save Salama bin Hisham. O Allah! Save Walid bin Walid. O Allah! Save the weak faithful believers. O Allah! Be hard on the tribes of Mudar and send (famine) years on them like the famine years of (Prophet) Joseph . The Prophet further said, Allah forgive the tribes of Ghifar and save the tribes of Aslam. Abu Az-Zinad (a sub-narrator) said, The Qunut used to be recited by the Prophet in the Fajr prayer.

(1007) Invocation of the Prophet : O Allah! Send (drought-famine) years on them (pagans of Makkah) like the (drought-famine) years of (Prophet) Yusuf (Joseph)

Narrated Masruq: We were with `Abdullah and he said, When the Prophet saw the refusal of the people to accept Islam he said, O Allah! Send (famine) years on them for (seven years) like the seven years (of famine during the time) of (Prophet) Joseph. So famine overtook them for one year and destroyed every kind of life to such an extent that the people started eating hides, carcasses and rotten dead animals. Whenever one of them looked towards the sky, he would (imagine himself to) see smoke because of hunger. So Abu Sufyan went to the Prophet and said, O Muhammad! You order people to obey Allah and to keep good relations with kith and kin. No doubt the people of your tribe are dying, so please pray to Allah for them. So Allah revealed: Then watch you For the day that The sky will bring forth a kind Of smoke Plainly visible ... Verily! You will return (to disbelief) On the day when We shall seize You with a mighty grasp. (44.10-16) Ibn Mas`ud added, Al-Batsha (i.e. grasp) happened in the battle of Badr and no doubt smoke, Al-Batsha, Al-Lizam, and the verse of Surat Ar-Rum have all passed .

Narrated Sharik bin `Abdullah bin Abi Namir: I heard Anas bin Malik saying, On a Friday a person entered the main Mosque through the gate facing the pulpit while Allah's Apostle was delivering the Khutba. The man stood in front of Allah's Apostle and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! The livestock are dying and the roads are cut off; so please pray to Allah for rain.' Anas added, Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) raised both his hands and said, 'O Allah! Bless us with rain! O Allah! Bless us with rain! O Allah! Bless us with rain!' Anas added, By Allah, we could not see any trace of cloud in the sky and there was no building or a house between us and (the mountains of) Sila. Anas added, A heavy cloud like a shield appeared from behind it (i.e. Sila' Mountain). When it came in the middle of the sky, it spread and then rained. Anas further said, By Allah! We could not see the sun for a week. Next Friday a person entered through the same gate and at that time Allah's Apostle was delivering the Friday's Khutba. The man stood in front of him and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! The livestock are dying and the roads are cut off, please pray to Allah to withhold rain.' Anas added, Allah's Apostle I raised both his hands and said, 'O Allah! Round about us and not on us. O Allah! On the plateaus, on the mountains, on the hills, in the valleys and on the places where trees grow.' So the rain stopped and we came out walking in the sun. Sharik asked Anas whether it was the same person who had asked for the rain (the last Friday). Anas replied that he did not know.
