Who Can Stop Earthquake

Until this article was made, the earthquake in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, it had been happened for 825 times of earthquakes which caused of victims of more than 500 people killed and more than 7000 people injured. Even the aftershocks happened for more than 1005 times.

For most of the people, including most of moslem people as well, thought that the earthquake was a kind of tectonic earthquake which was caused by a back Flores fault plate thrust. And up to this point only. Bo further thought that actually each kind of disasters, including the shift of tectonic plate which causing earthquake, is part of Destiny and Willingness of Allah swt.

قُلْ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَعْصِمُكُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ إِنْ أَرَادَ بِكُمْ سُوءًا أَوْ أَرَادَ بِكُمْ رَحْمَةً ۚ
وَلَا يَجِدُونَ لَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَلِيًّا وَلَا نَصِيرًا

“Say, "Who is it that can protect you from Allah if He intends for you an ill or intends for you a mercy?" And they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or any helper.” (QS 33:17)

Today, there are a lot of moslem people which has mindset as disbelivers, that any kind of natural disasters were caused merely by natural events, that’s it. Eventhough that every kind of incidents which happened on earth were parts of Decision and Willingness of Allah swt. Every kind of incidents, both disasters or fortunes, all was intended so then people will be reliazed and get back to believe Allah swt.

He is Allah swt who can stop the earthquake, so let us all get back to Him. Asking for forgiveness of all our sins and mistakes, worshiping and fully believing Allah swt, so then He will replace these misfortunes with life full of fortunes.

If the people of a country strongly believe to Allah swt, then He will give His grace from the heaven and earth. So, if now there had been so many natural disasters happened in our country, it would be worthful to rethink, have the people of this country believed to Allah swt? (AK/ST)
