Is there a Prayer During Earthquakes and Lightning? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: Is a prayer made for other signs like earthquakes and lightning?

Answer: “A Hadith was reported in Nasaai from Ibn Abbas radiallahu anhumma about the salahtul- Ayaat (the prayer of the signs). Yes.

Questioner: It’s form is like the eclipse prayer?

Shaikh: I do not know*.

[Sharh Sunan Ibn Majah no. 96]

* Translator’s note: In regards to the form of the prayer, the narration of Ibn ‘Abbas radiallahu anhumma states:

فصارت صلاته ست ركعات واربع سجدات

“…So his prayer became six ruku’ (bowing) and four prostrations…”

[Reported by Bayhaaqi in Sunan al-Kubra (3/343) and he said: “It is established from Ibn ‘Abbas“]

And Allah knows best.
