Investigating how earthquakes occur in a particular area is a quest of experimental and exploratory science. But WHY an earthquake struck a particular place and people is beyond the scope of experimental, natural sciences. WHY can only be answered correctly by the One Who brought it about, God. Its answers ought to be searched equally scientifically but in a different manner from the Quran – the Book brought to us from God, The Giver and The Seizer, by His Messenger, Muhammad.
This audio recording of a Friday khutba (sermon) sheds light on this issue and goes further to suggest what we can do to help the sufferers as well as to take sure measures to prevent them in future.
