Ammaa Ba’d:

Imaam At tirmidhi mentions his chain of narration going back to Ibn Abaas – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhumaa who said: ” The Jews came to the Messenger of Allah and they said “Oh Abal Qaassim! Inform us about thunder what is it? He replied:

An Angel from the angels who is responsible for the clouds, he has with him bolts of fire that he drives the clouds with wherever he wills” so they said: “So what is this noise we hear (i.e. thunder)?
