Three easy dua for thunderstorms: and later in this post, we will read Stories of Hope for believers to make aware of the day when we will be held responsible for our deeds (The Day of Judgment). Dua for thunderstorm from the holy Quran “The thunder praises Allah, and so do the angels out of respect for Him. Allah sends thunderbolts, hitting whom He chooses, while people argue about Him and He is severe in assault.” (Quran 13:13)
Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ):
Salim bin Abdullah shared that his father, Abdullah bin Umar (may Allah be pleased with them), reported that when the Prophet (ﷺ) heard thunder or saw lightning, he would say: “O Allah, please don’t harm us with Your lightning, and don’t punish us with Your punishment. Instead, protect us before any of that happens.” Source: Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 721
Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on dua for thunder:
Narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Jews came to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) and asked him, ‘O Abul-Qasim, tell us about thunder, what is it?’ He replied, ‘It’s an angel among the angels who takes care of the clouds. He carries a piece of fire and directs the clouds wherever Allah commands.’ They asked, ‘Then what’s that sound we hear?’
He said, ‘It’s the angel striking the clouds as he guides them, following Allah’s orders.‘ They said, ‘You’ve spoken the truth.’ Then they asked, ‘Tell us about what Isra’il made forbidden for himself.’ The Prophet said, ‘He suffered from sciatica, and the only thing he found soothing for it was camel meat and its milk. So, for that reason, he made it forbidden.’ They replied, ‘You have spoken the truth.'”

Dua for Rain english translation:
When the sky splits open,
And when the stars scatter,
And when the seas burst forth,
And when the graves are turned upside down,
A soul will [then] know what it has put forth and kept back.
O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous,
Who created you, proportioned you, and balanced you?
In whatever form He willed, He constructed you.
No, but you deny the Recompense.
And indeed, [appointed] over you are keepers,
Noble and recording,
They know whatever you do.
Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure,
And indeed, the wicked will be in Hellfire.
They will enter it on the Day of Recompense.
And they will not be absent from it.
And what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?
Then, what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?
It is the Day when a soul will not possess for another soul [power to do] a thing, and the command, that Day, is [entirely] with Allah.
Allah’s (سبحانه و تعالى) recognition and mercy on the day of Judgement
During the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), people from his Ummah asked him. O Messenger of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), shall we see our creator on the day of Judgement? The messenger of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) said Yes! and added do you feel troubled when you look directly towards the sun? and Do you feel troubled seeing the moon directly in full moonlight with no cloud over it?
They said, “No, Messenger of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى).” Then our dear Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “You won’t find it hard to see Allah on the Day of Resurrection, just like seeing any of them.”
On the day of resurrection a Mu’adhdhin (a proclaimer) would demonstrate: Let each group of people follow what they used to worship.
Those who used to worship idols and stones besinde the Almighty Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) will fall into the fire of Jahannum till only the righteous, some people of the book who worshipped Allah and the vicious are left.
Then the Jews will be called, and they will be asked, “Who did you worship?” They will say, “We worshipped ‘Uzair, the son of Allah.” But they will be told, “You are not telling the truth. Allah has never had a spouse or a son. What do you need now?” They will say, “We are thirsty, O Allah (سبحانه وتعالى)! Please quench our thirst.”
They will be shown a direction and told, “Why don’t you go there to drink water?” Then they will be pushed towards the Fire, only to realize with great sorrow that it was just a mirage. The fierce flames of fire will be consuming each other, and they will fall into the Fire.
Next, the Christians will be called, and they will be asked, “Who did you worship?” They will answer, “We worshipped Jesus, the son of Allah.” But they will be told, “You are not telling the truth. Allah didn’t have a spouse or a son. What do you need?”
They will say, “We are thirsty, O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى)! Please quench our thirst.” They will be shown a direction and told, “Why don’t you go there to get water?” However, they will be pushed and gathered towards the Jahannam (Hell), which looked like a optical illusion to them. The flames will consume each other, and they will fall into the Fire until only those who worshipped Allah, whether good or not, are left.
The Lord (سبحانه و تعالى) of the Universe, who is Glorified and Exalted, would come to them in a form that they can recognize and say, “What are you looking for? Every group should follow what they worshipped.”
They would say, “OurAllah (سبحانه و تعالى), we stayed away from people in the world, although we needed them; but we didn’t mix with them.” He would say, “I am your Lord (سبحانه و تعالى).” They would say, “We seek refuge with Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) from you and don’t associate anything with Allah (سبحانه و تعالى).”
They would repeat this two or three times, until some of them were about to return. It would be asked, “Is there any sign between you and Him by which you will recognize Him?” They would say, “Yes,” and things would be revealed. Those who used to bow down to Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) willingly would be allowed by Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) to bow down.
But those who bowed down out of fear and show-off would find their backs turned into one piece, and whenever they tried to bow down, they would fall on their backs. Then they would raise their heads, and He would appear in the same form they first saw Him, saying, “I am your Lord (سبحانه و تعالى).”
They would say, “You are our Allah (سبحانه و تعالى).” After that, a bridge (As-Sirat) would be set up over Jahannam (Hell), and intercession would be allowed, and they would say, “O Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), keep us safe, keep us safe.”
Someone asked: “Messenger ﷺ of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), what is this bridge?” He replied: As-Sirāt “It’s like a gap where one might slip. There will be hooks, tongs, and spits resembling thorns found in Najd, known as Sa’dan.
The believers will pass over it swiftly, like lightning, wind, birds, or the finest horses and camels. Some will escape unharmed, some will be injured and released, and some will be pushed into the Fire of Hell until the believers find rescue.
I swear by the One holding my life, on the Day of Resurrection, none among you will be more eager to claim a right than the believers. They will plead for their brethren in the Fire, saying: ‘O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى), they fasted, prayed, and performed pilgrimage with us.’
They will be told: ‘Take out those whom you recognize.’ Their loved ones will be saved from the Fire. They will bring out many people overtaken by Fire up to their shanks or knees. They will say: ‘O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى), not one of those You commanded us about remains in it.’
He will say: ‘Go back and bring out those in whose hearts you find goodness equal to the weight of a dinar.’ They will bring out many. They will say: ‘O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى), we have not left anyone You commanded us about.’ He will say:
‘Go back and bring out those in whose hearts you find goodness equal to half a dinar.’ They will bring out many more, saying: ‘O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى), not one of those You commanded us about is left in it.’ He will say:
‘Go back, and if you find in anyone’s heart goodness equal to the weight of a particle, bring him out.’ They will bring out many people, saying: ‘O our Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), now we have not left anyone in it (Hell) with any goodness in him.'”
Abu Sa’id Khudri shared: If you doubt what I’m saying, you can read this verse: “Surely Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) wrongs not the weight of an atom, and if it is a good deed, He multiplies it and gives from Himself a great reward” (Qur’an: Surah AN-Nisa 40).
Then Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), who is Exalted and Great, will say: The angels, apostles, and believers have all interceded. Now, only the Most Merciful of the merciful remains to grant pardon. He will take a handful from the Fire and bring out people who never did any good, turning them into charcoal.
He will cast them into a river called the River of Life on the outskirts of Paradise. They will emerge like seeds from a flood, seen near a stone or tree. Those exposed to the sun will be yellowish or greenish, while those in the shade will be white. The companions asked: Messenger of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), it seems like you were tending a flock in the jungle. He replied: They will appear like pearls with seals on their necks.
The inhabitants of Paradise will recognize them and say: “Those are the ones set free by the Compassionate One, admitted into Paradise without any good deed or advance sent by them.” Then Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) will say: “Enter Paradise; everything you see is yours.” They will say: “O Lord (سبحانه وتعالى), You have given us favors not given to anyone else in the world.”
He will say: “I have something better for you.” They will ask: “O our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى)! What could be better than this?” He will say: “It is My pleasure. I will never be angry with you after this.”

What does the Quran say about thunder?
In the Quran, thunder is like a big boom that shows how powerful and awesome Allah is. The Quran talks about thunder to help us see that it’s one of the cool things Allah made. It’s a way to show He’s really in charge. The Quran says thunder and lightning are like amazing signs that make us think about how great Allah is.
There’s a special part in the Quran, Surah Ar-Ra’d (13:13), that talks about thunder.
It says that thunder is a way to praise Allah, and it’s also a sign of His strong power. It can be really strong, like a big punch. The Quran also says that even angels feel a bit scared of Allah, showing how important it is to respect and be humble in front of the Creator. So, thunder reminds us of Allah’s power and why we should be humble and respectful to Him.
