compiled by Imam Ilyasi, Chief Imam of India

The Quran says (what means): "We sent down water from the sky, blessed water whereby We caused to grow gardens, grains for harvest, tall palm-trees with their spathes, piled one above the other - sustenance for (Our) servants. Therewith We gave (new) life to a dead land. So will be the emergence (from the tombs)." [Quran 50:9-11]

And (what means): "We sent down water from the sky in measure and lodged it  in the ground. And We certainly are able to withdraw it. Therewith for you We gave rise to gardens of palm-trees and vineyards where for you are abundant fruits and of them you eat." [Quran 23: 18-19]

And (what means): "We sent forth the winds that fecundate. We cause the water to descend from the sky. We provide you with the water - you (could) not be the guardians of its reserves." [Quran 15:22]

"Have you observed the water you drink? Do you bring it down from the rainclouds? Or do We? If it were Our will, We could make it salty. Then why are you not thankful?"
[Quran 56: 68-70]
