National Weather Service: A Storm Like No Other (+video)


When the Wind Blows

Abu Hurairah reported, “I heard the Prophet, peace be upon him, saying, ( which means) “The wind is a blessing from Allah. It brings mercy as well as punishment. So when you see it do not abuse it, and ask Allah for its good, and seek refuge with Allah against its evil’.” (Reported by Abu Daw’ud with a sound chain of narrators)

‘Aishah reported that whenever the wind blew, the Prophet, peace be upon him, would supplicate, “O Allah, I ask You for its good, and the good that is in it, and the good of what it is sent with, and I seek Your refuge against its evil, and the evil it is sent with.” (Muslim)

  On Hearing Thunder

Ibn ‘Umar reported that whenever the Prophet, peace be upon him, heard the sound of thunder or lightning he would say, “O Allah, do not destroy us with Your wrath nor let us perish with Your punishment, and save us before it comes to pass.” (Reported by Tirmizhi, by its chain of authorities is weak)
