What To Do At The Approach Of A Storm

Nadhr bin Abdullah RA relates:

"One day while Anas (RA) 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 (SAW) 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 masjid, fearing the approach of the Last Day'."

Abu Darda RA narrates:

"Whenever there was a storm, the Prophet (SAW) would get perturbed and would go to the masjid."

Nowadays, who thinks of going to the masjid, 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 Sunnah. What a deterioration!
