South Asian Earthquake

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate
Peace and Blessings be Upon our Master Muhammad, His Family, Companions
and all those who follow him until the Day of Judgement

Assalamu'alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,

"An earthquake measuring at least 7.6 on the Richter scale caused massive devastation across a swathe of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan."

I spoke to relatives who said nothing could be heard during the quake, but the recitation of the shahadah by school children, workers, and elders alike. Subhan'Allah. May Allah have Mercy on all those who passed from this world during this month of Ramadan, most of whom were likely fasting.

This is one of many disasters that have occured this year. La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah. We could easily be among the victims. Let us make the most of each moment Allah grants us. Give priority to 'ibaadah over work, school....

Please recite Fatiha for all those who have felt the impact of the quake.

Reminders to us all:

When the Generous appears with the Name Avenger

From Some: Wisdom...

Everyone who is taken by death asks for more time, while everyone who still has time makes excuses for procrastination.
Ali radi Allah anhu]
