When an Earthquake strikes
from the teachings of Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat Sahib
by Muhammad Chothia
"Naturally, at the time of an earthquake, the Might and Power of Allah ta'ala comes to the forefront of one's mind. Huge amounts of earth are shaken, without warning, and often with disastrous consequences.
At such a time, one can easily contemplate upon and realise what the Wrath and Punishment of Allah ta'ala entails.
Therefore, we must use such occasions as opportunities to turn wholeheartedly towards Allah ta'ala and utilise the fear that has been created in our hearts to sincerely repent.
We should acknowledge our sins, preferably after reading two rakah of Salaah and make amends for our sinful past. And we should make a firm resolution to spend the rest of our lives in accordance with the wishes of Allah."
