Is there any reference for reading Surah Falaq and Surah Nas when windy or during inclement weather?



Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded the following Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who says:

“While I was travelling with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) between Juhfah and Abwa, a strong wind and intense darkness enveloped us. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) began to seek refuge by reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Nas. He then said, ‘Uqbah, seek refuge through these two Surahs for none can seek refuge [with anything better] than these two Surahs…”

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1458)
