Weather forecast: Only a guess based on the universal Laws of Allah

Q 2: The meteorological observatories say that the weather during the coming twenty four hours is expected to be sunny, cloudy, or accompanied by thunder storms. It might rain here or there, and there will be southern or northern winds, and so on.

A: Predicting weather conditions or forecasting winds, storms, clouds, or rainfall in some places is based upon knowledge of the universal laws of Allah. Those who are experienced in these laws make educated guesses through scientific theories and experiments, and so they only predict, informing us about what they expect; by way of guessing, not knowledge. At times they prove correct, and other times they prove wrong.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
