According to the following article, rain during the flowering and ripening times can damage date fruits. It seems that the most serious damage happens when rain comes when the date is about to ripen, or is on the trees ready to harvest (rutab and tamar stages).

Contacting a local extension agent or an agricultural college/university in your area is also a good idea. Many universities have outreach programs for farmers.
