(160)

When AAabdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr used to hear thunder he would stop talking and say:

سُبْـحانَ الّذي يُسَبِّـحُ الـرَّعْدُ بِحَمْـدِهِ، وَالملائِكـةُ مِنْ خيـفَته.

 Subhanal-lathee yusabbihur-raAAdu bihamdih, walmala-ikatu min kheefatih.

‘How perfect He is, (The One) Whom the thunder declares His perfection with His praise, as do the angles out of fear of Him.’
