SMS Messages Link Quakes With Koran; Some Leaders Call Quake 'Warning' From God

Text messages have been circulating since last week linking the timing of Wednesday and Thursday's earthquakes in Sumatra with verses about immorality and punishment in the Koran, prompting some Islamic leaders to call the disaster a “warning” from God.

Two days after the earthquake shook West Sumatra, the Jakarta Globe received an anonymous text message.

“Padang’s earthquake happened at 17:16 and the aftershock happened at 17:58. The next day, there was an earthquake in Jambi at 8:52. Look at the Koran!” the text message stated.

The verses corresponding with the earthquake times reference “annihilating” towns where residents and leaders have acted immorally. (Full translations of the passages are below)

Poet Taufiq Ismail told Republika newspaper that the link between the Padang earthquake and chapter 17, verse 16, in the Koran was found by a young ulema.

“It is awesome. I am stunned,” Taufiq said.

“I think the SMS has spread widely with the purpose that the nation stops doing the things that have angered God,” he said.

Abdullah Syah, chairman of North Sumatra’s Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI), said that the earthquake was “a test and a warning for people in West Sumatra as well as in other areas.”

“Every one must open their heart and their eyes to the disaster,” he said.

The earthquake was a signal for the Indonesian government to eradicate immorality, Abdullah added.

Meanwhile, geology experts have said the powerful quake that shook Padang came from a spot near — but not inside — the Sunda Trench, a long undersea crescent of seismic energy stretching from north of Aceh to the east of East Timor.

Tectonic plates from India and Australia are grinding slowly under plates that support Indonesia and Burma at a rate of up to six centimeters per year, causing explosive releases of force.

Quake expert Sri Widiyantoro, from the Bandung Institute of Technology, said the precise cause of the jolt in Padang did not come from the seam between plates, but was triggered by a break in the middle, a type known as an intraplate quake.

Translation of Koran verses referenced in SMS message

Chapter 17, Verse 16 (Al Isra)

“And when We desire to destroy a town, We command its affluent ones, those [inhabitants] of it who enjoy the graces [of God], meaning its leaders, [We command them] to obedience, by the tongue of Our messengers; but they fall into immorality therein, rebelling against Our command, and so the Word is justified concerning it, that it should be chastised, and We destroy it utterly, We annihilate it by annihilating its inhabitants and leaving it in ruins.”

Chapter 17, Verse 58 (Al Isra)

“There is not a town — its inhabitants are the ones meant — but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, through death, or chastise it with terrible chastisement, by killing [its inhabitants] or otherwise. That has been inscribed in the Book, the Preserved Tablet.”

Chapter 8, Verse 52 (Al Anfal)

“The way of these people is like the way of Pharaoh’s folk and those before them: they disbelieved in God’s signs and so God seized them, with chastisement, because of their sins. Truly, God is strong, in what He wills, severe in retribution.”

Japan: - Doesn't blame earthquakes on god. Looks to science to solve problem. Result: Despite being 'earthquake country', cities survive, few dead.

Indonesia: - Blames god and immoral behaviour. Looks to prayer to solve problem. Result: Cities constantly leveled, thousands upon thousands dead (repeatedly).

Never compare Indonesia to Japan. Not fair as the both is very different in everything. Indonesia is an archipelago that has many different cultures and also has the history of colonization for centuries long by the nations else. It's a a complex problem.

God still loves Aceh very much...loves Yogyakarta very much.. loves Tasikmalaya very much... still loves Indonesian. Tsunami etc will reduce human's pity sins (if they are willingly patient with it) so they won't have to pay again in hell.The greater it's, the more also their sins will be reduced.

If God doesn't loves Indonesian then God won't care about no matter what immorality done because God will pend the 'rewards' in hell.Rewards in hell is scarer and longer than in the world. 1 day in the hell is the same long time with 1 year long in the world.

What a load of cock. The reason why Indonesia gets lots of earthquakes is because this country's made of volcanic islands caused by a major tectonic fault line which allowed Indonesia to come into being. Would you build a house of cards on a rollercoaster? That is what indonesia is, a disaster permanently waiting to happen. San Fracisco is the same, but at least they mitigate by thinking about disaster prevention. God-blaming is at fault here. Less hand-wringing and more building planning. I day in hell = reading Paregy's pseudo-religious tripe.

That's a good point, adelina! If there is no God, why isn't ompong out getting his jollies raping and murder and ripping everybody off? Without God, there is no reason to be good, right?

Silly atheists. They get to do whatever they want and they don't do it! Why aren't they all in super sex orgies! That seems to be what most Muslims and Christians would do without God to stop them.
Posted by: linnaen

Re: Earthquake God's will - 30 Oct 09 11:49

I would imagine the threat of death by firing squad would be quite a good reason for an atheist not to get his jollies in that manner. Especially if there is no belief in a god, and therefore an afterlife.


Surely it should be the other way around? If you can do all you want, then just apologise and say you believe before they shoot, there is less of a reason to behave.

Yes, but GOD is ALWAYS watching, Linnaen. smile The police are only watching sometimes, and they might not catch you. If you are an atheist, you can always wear a mask so the girl doesn't see your face and then rape her when the local cop is asleep. You can never rape on GOD's watch, because GOD never sleeps! He never even blinks! In fact he probably doesn't even have any eyelids, because there wouldn't be any point in having them, if you were GOD. Eyelids are a bit like belly-buttons in that way. smile But I don't know. GOD tells us that we can never know GOD untill he lets us into his garden again, so we really shouldn't be arrogant enough to say whether or not he has eyelids for certain.

Another thing you obviously haven't thought of: when do you know to repent? If you carry out a crime, maybe then a Bus will run you over before you can repent? smile

I think you will find that GOD will know that you are a for-life sinner too, so you probably will be run over BEFORE you repent, because GOD knows everything, including how your life is going to play out! And if he can control the sun and the moon and the earth, then surely he can cut the brakes on an old Jakarta bus smile

There's an old story in my family, about a great uncle who turned his back on GOD. He studied turtles all his life and became a Darwinian atheist. He spent so much time with turtles, he forgot all about GODS WORD. But when he was about to die, he called for a priest. The family called for the priest to come, but he died before the priest arrived. That was GOD.

GOD works in mysterious ways

It is very arrogant to think that God doesn't know your atheist tricks.

GOD is like a hurricane, and you need to be in the lidless eye of GOD if you want to have LIFE. Everything else will be swept away.

Praise be to GOD! Stay strong in GOD. You take care of your body - let him exercise your soul!

Stay strong in GOD, Adelina. You are right because you know GOD is right.

Re: Earthquake God's will - 30 Oct 09 12:35

Dear Adelina, I just read back the rest of this thread I saw some of the awful things Mr Ompong said about GOD.

I just want to know that you have a BELIEVER with you.

Mr Ompong - Let's call him Wrongpong! - said before that it was unfair that GOD sent earthquakes to Indonesia and not other places and showed that GOD was Mean. THIS IS NOT TRUE!

The reason GOD send earthquakes to Indonesia and not England and Australia is because in England and Australia they are already unbelievers and so already DOOMED. It is too late for GOD to save them now.

He sends earthquakes to Indonesia to TEST THE FAITH OF THE BELIEVERS. Because GOD cares about his children. smile

Don't let the unbelievers let you stray from the path of GOD, Adelina. Stay STRONG IN GOD smile

You see, Adelina -- the atheists think they are so much cleverer than GOD, but his mind stretches to every corner of the universe, to places the human mind cannot even imagine.

And it's not stealing when it comes to spreading GOD's word. That's a gift smile
