ذِكْرُ مَا يُسْتَحَبُّ لِلْمَرْءِ الِاسْتِمْطَارُ فِي أَوَّلِ مَطَرٍ يَجِيءُ فِي السَّنَةِ

[Machine] "We were caught in the rain while we were with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ , so it caused his garment to become soaked. We said, 'Why did you do this, O Messenger of Allah?' He replied, 'This rain is a sign of the promise of Allah.'"  

ابن حبّان:٦١٣٥أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ مَوْلَى ثَقِيفٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرُ بْنُ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ ثَابِتٍ عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ

مُطِرْنَا وَنَحْنُ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَحَسَرَ عَنْ ثَوْبِهِ لِلْمَطَرِ قُلْنَا لِمَ صَنَعْتَ هَذَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ؟ قَالَ «إِنَّهُ حَدِيثُ عَهْدٍ بِرَبِّهِ»

It rained upon us as we were with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. The Messenger of Allah (way peace be upon him) removed his cloth (from a part of his body) till the rain fell on it. We said: Messenger of Allah, why did you do this? He said: It is because it (the rainfall) has just come from the Exalted Lord.
