Tens of Thousands Muslims Pray for Rain for Australian Farmers+Photos

Tens of thousands of Muslims across Australia simultaneously prayed for rain yesterday to help drought-affected Australian farmers.

Sixteen mosques dedicated their celebrations during the holy celebration of Eid al-Adha — one of Islam’s holiest festival — which was observed on Tuesday.

The biggest gathering was at Lakemba Mosque in Sydney which was attended by some 30,000 Muslims.

Many braced the cold winter morning to conduct a special ‘rain prayer’ for the worst affected areas.

NSW Farmers spokesperson Kathleen Curry told the ABC they really appreciated the support and thoughts from everyone in the community.
