Syria prays for rain at President Assad's request
Imams across Syria are directing Muslims to pray for rain during this week's congregational Friday prayers. Syrian President Bashar Assad directed imams to pray for rain in this week's Jumma prayers through a circular distributed by the Religious Affairs Ministry, SANA state news agency reported Tuesday. According to SANA, insufficient rain and a changing climate have hurt crop yields this year, as most of Syria's precipitation comes in winter. Friday prayers are the most important weekly prayers in the Muslim world. Imams deliver weekly sermons on the topic ranging from family to politics and, in this case, the weather. In Israel, Jewish worshipers prayed for rain at the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Thursday after Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel called for prayers to relieve the country's drought-hit farming sector.
