Sydney: A day after some Muslims and Christians prayed for rain at Bonython Park in the city of Adelaide in Southern Australia, the rain brought relief to fire-ravaged parts of Australia and temperatures have dropped. However, officials have warned that blazes will “take off” again.
According to the Daily Mail, Priest Patrick McInerey also joined the prayer for rain amid the bushfires and drought that have ravaged the continent. Professor Mohamad Abdallah, gave the khutbah (sermon) emphasising repentance and reliance on God who is Merciful Provider.
The fires have been burning since late December 2019 which claimed at least 25 human lives and a half a billion animal lives.
