Dua for Rain and Thunder

Bismillaah
We are in a middle of a very cold winter here. Today, subhanAllaah it started raining while I was on the phone talking to a friend. She practically lives on the other end of the city and we noticed the thunder at the same time and both of us were like: SubhanAllaah!

I asked her for the dua to recite when it thunders and rain but none of us had it memorized. InshaAllaah, while typing it out, I hope to have it memorized for future, so I don’t waste time getting my Hisn ul Muslim copy out of my bag!

At the time of rain:

اللَّهُمَّ صَيِّبَاً نَافِعَا

Allaahumma Sayyibann Naafi’aa

“O Allaah, (bring) beneficial rain clouds.”
(Bukhari – Fathul-Bari 2/518)

After it has rained:

مُطِرْنَا بِفَضْلِ اللهِ وَ رَحْمَتِهِ

Mutirnaa bifaDlillaahi wa rahmatihi

“It has rained by the bounty of Allaah and His Mercy”
(Bukhari 1/205, Muslim 1/83)

At the time of thunder:

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي يُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةٌ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ

SubHanalladhii yusabbiHur ra’du bi hamdihi wal malaa-ikatu min kheefatihi

“Glory is to Him Whom thunder and angels glorify due to fear of Him.”

[Whenever Abdullaah bin Zubair radhiyaAllaahu anhu would hear thunder, he would abandon all conversation and say this supplication. See al Muwatta 2/992.
It was graded authentic by Al-Albani as a statement of Abdullaah bin Zubair only.]
