Whilst those around him were terrified, ‘Umar Ibnu ‘Abdil ‘Azeez was seen smiling as the skies thundered ferociously with heavy rain and the flashes of lightening were blinding.

He was asked, "How can you smile at this time?!"

He replied,

هذا صوت رحمة الله، فكيف لو سمعت صوت عذاب الله؟
“If what you are hearing now are the sounds of Allah’s mercy (i.e. rain), how then would you react had you heard the sounds of Allah’s punishment?”

(From the book, 'Hilyatul Awliyaa')

Something to remember during the next storm.
