At Time of Thunder (183)
Whenever `Abdullãh bin 'Az-Zubayr would hear thunder he would stop talking, and say Subhãna 'allathee yusabbihur-ra`du bihamdihi, wal- malã'ikatu min kheefatihi (198)

Glory be to Allah Whom the thunder glorifies in Praise, and [so do] the Angels out of fear of him.


Al-Albãni said it was of sound stopping ascription. He said it was reported by Mãlik (#154/3), and, from him, by Al-Bukhãri in Al-Adab Al-Mufrad. He said that Al-Bayhaqi also reported it with sound ascription by way of `Abdillah Ibn Az-Zubayr; however, this had dropped out of Mãlik's Muwatta causing Mãlik's report of this hadeeth to be discontinous. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings.
