Qatar’s Emir and Father Emir joined other senior officials and students across the country in performing the istisqa prayer for rain on November 10 early morning.

Sheikh Tamim and the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf) had announced plans for the prayer day before.

The move follows in the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad, who used to ask God for rain when it was lacking.

In Qatar, these prayers are usually performed around once a year. Prayers were held at the Al Wajbah prayer ground at 6 am, and also at several independent schools around the nation.

The “rainy” season in Qatar officially began in October, but Qatar has seen little precipitation since then.

“There’s only about a 5 per cent chance of rain over the next few days,” Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist for Al Jazeera English, told Doha News.
