Hail is defined as a form of solid precipitation which consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, that are individually called hail stones. Hail stones on Earth consist mostly of water ice and measure between five millimetres (0.20 in) and 150 millimetres (5.9 in) in diameter, with the larger stones coming from severe thunderstorms.

I consider myself as a wide reader. I love to read anything from newspapers, tabloids, comics, books, other religious books that include Holy Bible and Holy Qur’an and many more.

Yesterday my attention was focused on a verse of the Holy Qur’an 24:43 translated in English that says “And He sends down hail from mountains (clouds) in the sky, and He strikes with it whomever He will, and turns it from whomever He wills. The vivid flash of its lightning nearly blinds the sight.”

The said verse from the Holy Qur’an was about lightning found on these links:, and The said phenomenon was explained by some Muslim scholars that what has been written in the Holy Qur’an are true, accepted and approved by some scientists who also testified that what Prophet Muhammad said in the Holy Qur’an was true - a divine inspiration or revelation which lead him to these statements.

Imagine in spite of the many sources for ideas to write, it’s the Holy Qur’an provided me the idea for this article. Awesome!
