Lightning & Thunder in Islam
It is now common knowledge, as scientists teach, that THUNDER is a sound caused by the impact between electrical charges found in the clouds. Yet Muhammad had a different opinion on this matter. He claimed that thunder and the lightning are two of Allah’s angels
– exactly like Gabriel.
In the Quran there is a chapter under the title of “Thunder” ( Al Ra’ad) in which it is recorded that the thunder praises Allah. One might think that it does not mean that literally because thunder is not a living being – although, spiritually speaking, all of nature glorifies God.
The expounders of the Quran and its chief scholars, however, insist that Muhammad said that the thunder is an angel exactly like the angel Gabriel and they have no choice but to accept it as a fact.
13: 13 Nay thunder repeateth His praises and so do the angels with awe: He flingeth the loud-voiced thunderbolts and therewith He striketh whomsoever He will… Yet these (are the men) who (dare to) dispute about Allah with the strength of His power (supreme)!
69: 5 But the Thamud they were destroyed by a terrible storm of thunder and lightning!
