“Natural” Disasters Reflect Law of the Return of Deeds



Every day, the world sinks deeper into a state of immorality as reflected and reinforced in television, movies, music and the media that depicts mankind’s growing state of disobedience to the Divine Almighty Creator.  The decadence, driven by a rise in materialism, abandonment of the law of the Supreme Creator and defiance of the Ten Commandments, has caused moral bankruptcy that crosses educational, political, religious, and socio-economical barriers. Just as a farmer plants “good” seeds in the earth to later sow a fruitful crop, so should man enjoin good and forbid evil to attain the ultimate goal in returning to Almighty God, a fate for which no soul shall escape.


What “seeds” are being planted today? Adultery is openly committed in every walk of life. Recently, the state of New York became the sixth and largest state to legalize gay marriages. In medicine, instead of using the knowledge given by Almighty God as an aid to mankind, so-called medical practitioners advocate family “planning”, a direct challenge to the Almighty Creator. Darwin’s theory of evolution and materialism has provided the foundation to drive the United States and its partners into unjust wars, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent women and children while plummeting its own citizens into financial ruin. Advocates of hate burn Holy Qur’ans in the streets as Islamophobia rises. However, the Bible and the Holy Qur’an clearly relate the history of the nations of people destroyed for the denial of, and disobedience to, the One Almighty God.

When man transgresses the Immutable Laws of the Almighty Creator or attempts to deny the existence of the One God, these deeds inevitably come back to mankind in the form of tornadoes, floods, droughts and other natural disasters. This past spring, the United States was ravaged by tornadoes leaving in their wake damage that has not been seen in 40 years, along with flash floods and uncontrollable wildfires. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service (NWS) estimates approximately 1,228 tornadoes so far in 2011, with approximately 1,000 fatalities – the highest death rate due to tornadoes since modern record-keeping began in 1950. Last March, a devastating earthquake and powerful tsunami annihilated parts of Japan killing tens of thousands. In 2005, a tragic tsunami killed over a quarter million people in Southeast Asia, a fate repeated in 2010 when Haiti was practically wiped off the map after over 300,000 people perished in a catastrophic earthquake in a matter of minutes.

His Eminence Sultan Mohyuddin Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, Vice Chancellor of the International Qur’anic Open University, has provided an explanation for the occurrence of tornadoes, floods, droughts and similar “natural disasters”:  “…The Almighty Creator is the Ruler of the rulers and He governs His Kingdom with a plan, a purpose and a Law. Everything that He has created is [the] manifestation of His Will, Wisdom and Purpose. In this physical world, He has created signs or symbols by which He makes Himself known to those who have intelligence and contemplative and pondering hearts. It should be understood that rebellion against Almighty God and His Laws brings His Wrath.”
