Wednesday 16th April 2013 a massive earth observed in Karachi and all over the Pakistan as well as in the other neighboring countries.
Around 6:30 A.M early morning on Friday 11th April 2013.
My eyes were closed and I was observing a very deep meditation and all of a sudden I became unaware of everything even myself and that every moment I had a very vivid vision of my city “KARACHI”.
It was as if I had been viewing the entire city from a very huge skyscraper. Then a large roaring sound like a massive bomb blast hit my hearing and even trying hard I couldn’t concentrated to meditate and my eyes went half open and my heart was beating like I had been running miles and miles.
But that was not the end of a very strange experience I was going through.
As my eyes went half open I felt massive jolts in my body like I was swinging so without a second thought I got up with my eyes half opened and made a run to the terries next to my bedroom and only then I noticed it was actually not me getting all those jolts but my entire surroundings so I started to recite Astaghfar and Ayat-e-Kareema. As the happening stopped after a few seconds I had started the recitation I right away switched on the television to find out if any earth quake hit the city but the news were clear and there had been no such thing.
Later in the day after giving my deep thoughts to the incident I realized that the vision and the later happening may have been an indication about a drastic future event going to happen in my city and my mind was convinced due to ongoing situation in the city and the country that it may be a terrorist attack over civilians or something like that. So I started to read Astaghfar and Ayat-e-Kareema and started to make DUA to Allah azzo wa jal to protect my city and my country.
5 days went peacefully AlhamdoliAllah; it means the vision may have been a figment of my mind. I was sitting on my sofa and these thoughts were wandering my mind that suddenly I felt the jolts and my sofa was giving swing so I got up suddenly and asked my family to make their way to outside home while reciting Astaghfar but suddenly the jolts stopped. Later that evening I finally realized what the vision and happening was about.
But that’s not all my friends.
The vision, the happening they not actually important here the thing which is actually important here is why the Earth Quake hit my entire country “PAKISTAN”.
Allah says in the QURAN: “Say: ‘He has power to send torment on you from above or from under your feet, or to cover you with confusion in party strife, and make you to taste the violence of one another.’” (Qur’an, 6:65)
Allah sends earthquakes as a punishment for some because of their sins and as a reminder or warning for others to repent and mend their ways.
Allah says in the Qur’an: “And We sent not the signs except to warn…” (Qur’an, 17:59)
Just as the lord sends down the blessings for the creation in the form of rain, good cultivation and abundance of sustenance, He also sends down warnings and punishments in the form of earthquakes and tsunamis and much more.
Allah says: “And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned. And He pardons much.” (Qur’an, 42:30)
The above verse is of particular importance. It shows that whatever calamity that strikes us is a result of our wrong deeds. Moreover, Allah pardons a lot, He’s Rahman, He’s Raheem and He’s Kareem. The punishment doesn’t come except when people have crossed all limits.
It’s time for us to think and make Tauba to Allah azzo wa jal, He’s only given us a warning and we may have been given a second chance but remember there won’t be any third. So I request my fellow Pakistanis to recite Astaghfar as much as we can and recite Ayat-e-Kareema.
May the Allah azzo wa jal turned his anger into blessings for all of us Ameen.
