Or is it the lightning struck in the darkness of the night of Idam.
From the notes on the Poem of the Scarf regarding this verse:
Idam is a mountain in Madinah. As Allamah Busairi Rahmatullahi alaihi sees the lightning he wonders if it is the same lightning that struck on Idam. Even the lightning reminds his troubles heart of his beloved. After mentioning Dhi-Salam, Kaazimah (in the previous verses) and now the Mount of Idam it becomes completely clear where his beloved is and who his beloved is without directly mentioning the name. Allamah Busairi Rahmatullahi alaihi is actually trying to keep the name of the beloved, Rasulullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam a secret.

SubhanAllah! To sit in the courtyard with a gentle drizzle falling as diamonds while praying Taraweeh adds another dimension to the blessings of this month and the tangible signs of Allah Ta’ala’s mercy.
All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
