Lightning, lightning, thunder or thunder will often appear in the rainy season. This is because during the rainy season the air around the clouds contains more water so that the insulation power decreases. Then, if the positively charged cloud meets a negatively charged cloud then the electric potential difference that flows is greater then the electrons will be released from the cloud to the earth in the form of lightning.

” O God, do not turn off our cause anger, and thou shalt not destroy us with your doom and save us before that happens ”
Whereas in the book al-Muwatha ' narrated from Abdullah bin Zubair that when he heard the thunder then he left a conversation while praying:  خِيْفَتِهِ مِنْ وَالْمَلاَئِكَةُ بِحَمِدِهِ الرَّعْدُ يُسَبِّحُ الَّذِيْ سُبْحَانَ

a from Ibn ‘Abbas that at that time the friends were with Umar bin Khattab on a journey, then the friends were struck by the thunder of lightning and lightning, Ka'ab also said to the friend to pray with that prayer three times then it would be saved from a bolt of lightning. Imam Nawawi in his book entitled al-Adzkar explained that Imam Syafi'I added a discussion related to the sentence in the prayer. Shafi'i Imam said “sentence
بِحَمِدِهِ الرَّعْدُ يُسَبِّحُ
This refers to the words of Allah SWT in the Qur'an Surat al-Ra'd verse 13″, namely:  بِحَمْدِهِ الرَّعْدُ وَيُسَبِّحُ
“And the thunder of lightning while worshiping Allah SWT”
Lightning, lightning or lightning are under the control of Allah SWT. Only Allah SWT has the right to subdue lightning. The verse came down because at that time there was a man who was invited to worship God Almighty but refused arrogantly. So Allah SWT brought him a bolt of lightning. Lightning is one of the tools to torture or doom for those who disobey Allah SWT.
Allah SWT also makes lightning a fear and hope. Imam Qatadah explained the purpose of fear, namely for those who are traveling, afraid of being struck and fear of difficulties caused by thunder and lightning. Whereas the meaning of hope is to make lightning as the hope for people who are in the house, hoping for benefits, blessings and sustenance from Allah SWT.
Therefore, let's pray when we hear the roar and lightning, as exalted forms to Allah SWT, praise Him for feeling afraid of His torment and our gratitude for His pleasure.
