Pilot (Hadith No. 817)


Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

First post from Kitaab-ul-Istisqaa' [Book of Invoking Allah for Rain]

There has been a sort of thorough post on this topic before. Do go through it, to get some good background information before you read on.

Volume 2, Book 17, Number 817:
Narrated 'Abbas bin Tamim's uncle:
The Prophet (p.b.u.h) went out to offer the Istisqa' prayer and turned (and put on) his cloak inside out.
  • Go OUT to offer Istisqaa' prayer.
    Here's a fatwa regarding the place of prayer. 
  • Turning the cloak and putting it on inside-out is also a Sunnah. Read this.
Note to self: post and sleep.
Wassalam.
