Egypt: Brotherhood Guide Asks People to Pray for Rain

The Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badea said that "while the state must resolve the water shortage issue in Matrouh, residents must perform the drought prayer as did their brothers in Somalia who were as a result blessed with rains not witnessed in the past seven years".

Badea added in his talk with Matrouh residents on Sunday, on the first day of Eid (Islamic feast), that Egyptians must support their Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.

He added that it has been years since Islamic and Arab countries had a president who memorizes the Quran and is able to lead fellow Muslims to prayers.

The supreme guide added that Egypt's wheat harvest has increased by six percent this year which shows that good intention leads to prosperity.
