In the Name
of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Disasters are coming all over the world and one after another,
regardless of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, Atheists or
others, and everyone is suffering very badly. It is time to re-think on
two types of Disasters, (Manmade Disasters and Natural Disasters).
An example of Manmade
be a cruel/incompetent ruler, which may be due bad deeds/actions of a
nation or a test. In both cases people need to take Lessons from the
Book of Guidance (the Quraan) and apply them practically. Repeatedly
Relying on a Corrupted Person will NOT Change the Fortune of a Country.
For example, Accidents,
Cyclones, Droughts, Earthquakes, Epidemics, Fires, Floods, Hailstorm,
Heat waves, Hurricanes, Tornados, Tsunami, Typhoon, Volcanic Eruptions,
Reasons of Disasters
Natural or Manmade could be either a Test or Alarming Punishments.
(Ref: Al_Quraan_002.155, 007.094, 008.020-022, 011.116-117)
Allah NEVER destroys any
Good Nation, without any reason. (Ref: 011.116-117, 030:041)
Disaster gets more and
devastating, after an Informer (Warner) arrives in a region (city /
country / globe) and people don’t obey them, in order that they
might learn humility. (Ref: Al_Quraan_007.094, 008.020-022, 011.116-117)
Allah Never Changes the
a Nation till their People (NOT their Leader) Changes themselves. (Ref:
to do when Disasters arrive:
Prevention is always
cure. Always be ready to face any challenges and make a backup plan and
prepare emergency tips before any disasters arrive. Also, keep asking
Allah for forgiveness.
to the Victims of the disasters?
We feel very sorry from
the depth of
our heart and we help from the depth of our heart. It is very hard to
face such a great disaster, than writing in words. Reliefs (helps) are
on the way, be patient and try to organize and help those first who
need immediate attention among you. Try to give the first chance to
children, old people, injured/sick people and women. Try not to break
the justice and try to divide the reliefs (helps) equally among you
with true justice.
to help the survivors of the disasters?
Saving a Life is like
Whole World. (Ref. Al_Quraan_005.032). Help the victims from the depths
of your heart with whatever you can, regardless of any discrimination
of Religion, Race, Gender or Color etc. If there are many deaths, try
to bury them as soon as possible. BUT if the deaths are enormous then
there is no need to waste time on counting bodies and waiting for
others to come and recognize their loved ones. This may cause huge
delay and diseases may spread which may enormously increase the figure
the Global Economy to serve the humanity and build heavenly earth in
the light of Quraan.
Al-Quraan, the Miracle of Miracles and free from contradictions and
