A Few Words on the Tsunami Disaster

These few words were given by Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq after the lecture ‘The Evils of Backbiting’ which was delivered in London on the 1 st of January 2005. This was by no means meant to be a full lecture on the implications of the Tsunami Disaster but rather the Shaykh just spoke on the matter for a few minutes since many people questioned him about it after the lecture.

For those who want a fuller understanding of the matter we suggest you listen to the following lectures:

The Eclipse (available in our webshop)

The inhabitants of South East Asia alongside thousands of tourists were affected by the violent earthquake that occurred under the sea near northern Indonesia on 26 th December 2004, sending huge waves crashing into coastal regions of many countries. The catastrophe has touched the hearts of humanity with people from all round the world trying to assist financially. However, the Tsunami disaster has led many people to ask “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?” The faith of those who believe in God has been brought into question. In this short address Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq explains the tragedy from an Islamic perspective. He raises the point that although others may question our faith, Muslims should not put their faith into question. He further explains how the limited human mind cannot completely understand the decree of Allah. Furthermore, such disasters are not freak occurrences but a test from Allah, afflicting everyone, good and bad.
