Rain is mentioned in different verses while expressing God’s attributes, story of different tribes, divine blessings, etc. Among these verses, the phrase “minassamāāi” can be considered to the source of rain and an examination of some exegesis, prove that such phrases were thought over the origin of rain. Differences of interpretations and citation of interpreters to several evidence and reasons, make it necessary to review their comments. It seems there is two opinions about the source of rain: (1) rain originates from heaven and sources in the sky and (2) rain originates from evaporation of water of the seas, rivers, etc. The main distinction between these two views can be related to the role of certain knowledge, the factor that is an important evidence in some interpretation. It can be concluded that exoteric meanings of verses, is not an authoritative evidence to prove that rain originates from heaven. Furthermore, some hadiths represent rain and clouds in a way that deserves rain originates from beyond clouds, but these hadiths can be an assimilation and allegory.
