Despite
the fact that earth scientists understand the mechanism by which
earthquakes can take place, they are losing faith in their ability to
predict such disasters.



EARTHQUAKES IN THE GLORIOUS QUR'AN 35231_250 Glorious
Qur'an emphasizes the fact that nothing happens in the universe without
the knowledge, will and wisdom of the Creator. Earthquakes - like many
other natural disasters - are part and parcel of the Divine plan for
punishing the ill - doers trying the pious ones, and teaching the saved
individuals the lesson of their lives. Unless taken in this context,
human beings will never learn from their own mistakes or even from the
mistakes of others. Understanding the mechanisms by which earthquakes
take place and measuring both their intensities and magnitudes cannot
help in their prediction. The only way of avoiding this and other
disasters is heeding the Creator and living according to His guidance.




The
word "earthquake" is mentioned twice in the Glorious Qur'an, indicating
"The Last Hour Quake" which is much more devastating than all the
earthquakes that have affected and will affect our plant throughout its
long history. The Glorious Qur'an reads:


"O
mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake
of the Hour (of Judgment) is a terrible thing. The Day you see it, every
nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will
drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they
will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of Allah."


(Surat Al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage):1-2)

In the same context, the Glorious Qur'an also reads:

"When
the earth is shaken with its (final) earthquake. And when the earth
throws out its burdens. And man will say: "What is the matter with it?"
That Day it will declare its information (about all that happened over
it of good or evil). Because your Lord will inspire it. That Day mankind
will proceed in scattered groups that they may be shown their deeds. So
whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant)
shall see it. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or
a small ant) shall see it."


(Surat Az-Zalzalah (The Earthquake):1-Cool

Present-day
earthquakes are mentioned in the Glorious Qur'an as forces that destroy
foundations of buildings and hence cause their destruction, or cause
rifting of the earth and swallowing the rifted part with its
inhabitants. The Qur'an reads:


"Those
before them indeed plotted, but Allah struck at the foundation of their
building, and then the roof fell down upon them, from above them, and
the torment overtook them from directions they did not perceive."


(Surat An-Nahl (The Bees):26)

I
can not find a more precise description for earthquakes than the above
mentioned verse, which outlines the reason behind it simply as plotting
and contriving against the will and the way of the Creator.




And in the same chapter we read an emphasis on this conclusion as the Qur'an reads:

"Do
then those who devise evil plots feel secure that Allah will not sink
them into the earth, or that the torment will not seize them from
directions they perceive not?"


(Surat An-Nahl (The Bees):45)

From
the previous two verses we can see clearly that the main reason behind
punishment with earthquakes is plotting against the way of Allah and
devising evil deeds against individuals or against humanity at large.
The Glorious Qur'an repeatedly emphasizes the fact that earthquakes,
rifting, tsunamis, Hurricanes, (or Typhoons), Cyclones Tropical Storms,
Tropical Depressions and other natural disasters were and still are ways
of expressing the wrath of the Creator against ill-doers of His
creation. If innocent individuals are caught in the middle of this way
of punishment, Allah will resurrect them according to their intentions
and will reward them amply. The Inimitable Qur'an reads:


"Do
you then feel secure that He will not cause a side of the land to
swallow you up, or that He will not send against you a violent
sand-storm? Then, you shall find no Wakil (guardian - one to guard you
from the torment)."


(Surat Al-Isra (The Journey by Nights):68)

The
Qur'an emphasizes the fact that earthquakes were among other forms of
punishment of previous deviators and ill-doers by saying:




"So
We punished each (of them) for his sins; of them were some on whom We
sent Hasib (a violent wind with shower of stones) (as the people of Lut (Lot)),
and of them were some who were overtaken by As-Saihah (torment - awful
cry. (as Thamud or Shu'aib's people)), and of them were some whom We
caused the earth to swallow (as Qar'an (Korah)), and of them were some
whom We drowned (as the people of Nuh (Noah), or Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and
his people). It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged
themselves."




(Surat Al-'Ankabut (The Spider):40)



The
Glorious Qur'an also makes earthquakes together with other natural
disasters a constant threat to those who commit evil deeds and
persistently violate the Divine guidance by saying:




"Or
do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not
send against you a violent whirlwind? Then you shall know how (terrible)
has been My Warning? And indeed those before them belied (the
Messengers of Allah), then how terrible was My denial (punishment)? ".




(Surat Al-Mulk (Dominion):17-18)



Geologically
speaking, rifting is a process by which a long, narrow continental
through that is bounded by normal faults is formed. It is a grabbed of
regional extent, and marks a zone of the Earth's surface along which the
entire thickness of the lithosphere has ruptured under extension.




Indeed,
the attempt to understand the mechanisms by which an earthquake takes
place and the different types of seismic waves accompanying them, to
classify earthquakes and to produce schemes for measuring both their
intensities and magnitudes is a wonderful exercise. And what is more
wonderful are the procedures of trying to predict earthquakes, and the
necessary precautions taken during and after the earthquake in order to
avoid or minimize its dangers wherever possible. Studies towards
reinforcing buildings, bridges, expressways, utility lines and other
disasters engineering related projects are highly valued.




Nevertheless,
this does not defy the fact that nothing happens in the universe
without the knowledge, will and wisdom of the Creator. Hence, if we want
to avoid earthquakes we have to follow His guidance and avoid His
displeasure as much as possible.




STANDING THE MECHANISM OF EARTHQUEKES DOES NOT DEFY ITS BEING PART OF THE DIVINE PLAN:



The
earth as a planet is annually subjected to about one million
earthquakes (with an average of about 2738 earthquakes per day). Most of
these earthquakes are gentle to moderate ones that cannot be felt by
man, but are recorded by seismographs.




EARTHQUAKES IN THE GLORIOUS QUR'AN 39575_250A
hundred to hundred and fifty of these earthquakes are moderate to
destructive in populated areas, (20) twenty of which are of total
destructive capacity, and every 5-10 years comes one that reaches or
exceeds the peak of mass destruction, although this average has been
lately accelerated.




Most
earthquakes occur in certain belts or earthquakes-prone zones. These
are concentrated where two tectonic plates collide, diverge or slip past
each other (plate-margin earthquakes). However, not a single spot on
the Earth's surface can be excluded from the possibility of being
subjected to earthquakes (The Intra-plate earthquakes). The type of
plate contact can determine both the magnitude intensity and depth of
the earthquake. During the movement of lithospheric plates
continent-size slabs of the earth's lithosphere are shifted and intense
forces overcome the friction between them. However, if the plates are
"locked together", forces build-up and eventually must give way, with
the plates lurching into new position and creating an earthquake.




Other
earthquakes form in association with volcanic activity, where the
build-up of heat and pressure often triggers smaller tremors and
localized earthquakes. The earth is subjected to about 20 volcanic
eruptions every fifty years, with an average of one volcanic eruption
every 2.5 years. The focal point (center) of the earthquake is the point
under the earth's surface where the earthquake energy is released. The
point on the surface of the earth just above the focus (center) is
called the epicenter. Most earthquake centers occur at a depth of about
100 Km. below the earth's surface, while some have much shallower and
others have much deeper Foci, but none is deeper than 700 Km. below the
earth's surface.


Shallow
earthquakes occur at depths of 5-70 Km., intermediate ones occur at
depths between 70 and 300 Km. and deep-seated earthquakes have their
Foci between 300 and 700 Km. below the surface of the earth. The
shallower the earthquake center the more destructive it is.




Seismic
waves travel out from the focus of an earthquake in all directions.
Primary waves (P-waves) move in a back and forth direction and are the
fastest seismic waves. These reach the far side of the globe in 20
minutes, traversing the Earth's molten outer core. Secondary waves
(S-waves) move sideways (in a side-to-side direction), being slower than
the P-waves and can move only through solids, stopping at the Earth's
molten outer core. Love and Raleigh waves (both called L-waves) travel along the earth's surface,
moving up, down and sideways, causing much of the structural damage associated with earthquake.
