What Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) used to do when a storm approached:
Hadhrat Nadhr-bin-Abdullah relates:
"One day while Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) was alive, it became very dark during the day time. I went to him and said, "Did you ever see much a thing in the Prophet's time?" He replied, "I seek refuge in Allah! In those days if the breeze grew a little stronger than normal, we would hasten towards the musjid, fearing the approach of the Last Day."
Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radhiyallaho anho) narrates: "Whenever there was a storm, the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam} would get perturbed and would go to the musjid."
Who thinks of going to musjid, now-a-days. even at the time of the worst of calamities? Leave aside the common people, even those who regard themselves as good and practising Muslims do not practise this Sunnat. What a deterioration!
