Dua at the time of thunder – 2

At the time of thunder, one should recite the following dua:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ الَّذِي يُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ، وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ

Glory be to Allah, the Being whom the thunder glorifies and praises, and also the angels (glorify Him and praise Him) out of His fear.

عن عبد الله بن الزبير: أنه كان إذا سمع الرعد ترك الحديث، وقال: سبحان الله الذي يسبح الرعد بحمده، والملائكة من خيفته، ثم يقول: إن هذا الوعيد لأهل الأرض شديد (السنن الكبرى للبيهقي، الرقم: 6471)

It is reported regarding Hazrat Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that when he would hear thunder, he would stop talking and recite the following dua:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ الَّذِي يُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ، وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ

 Thereafter, he would say, “Indeed this warning (i.e. the thunder) is very severe for the people of the earth.”
