Indonesia experienced a terrible earthquake yesterday which sends tremors up till the buildings along Shenton way.
I dint feel it ( probably too engrossed in my work ) but a few other in my building felt it. But building management announced that its not necessary to evacuate.
Its the first time I heard such an announcement. although I'm not afraid or anything, i cant help feeling sad for the people of Indonesia who had to endure 1 catastrophe after another. Tsunami and all....
Well, i shall not think about that. Allah (swt) - ' Al Malik ' knows everything and Im sure this disaster has a reason. May he save the mukmins and the babies and the children. amin.
I told hubby, besides Singapore's good geographical location, could it be that Allah have saved our country from bala' n bencana because Singapore still have Habib Abbas ( ahli bait ) and also the fact that Makam Habib Nuh is laying in Singapore's soil ?
I mean I did hear an ulama' from Hadramaut once says that if Habib Abbas makes Du'a, tiang di arash bergegar. And Habib Nuh is a wali Allah. But Hubby says nolah... in Indonesia also got many walis n ulama' what.
Just maybe our syiriq level is not so high. In Indonesia, some of the rural people practise forms of sacrifice eg goats n other life stock to avoid the Volcanoes from erupting or such.
Ustazah Kamariah says that sometimes its not Bala'. Allah (swt) was just picking shahids amongst them eg the people who died of Tsunami. Whatever it is, all these happenings is for us to see kebesaran Allah (swt). Its for us to reflect for a while and say subahanallah.
