The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: This people of mine is one to which mercy is shown. It will have no punishment in the next world, but its punishment in this world will be trials, earthquakes
and being killed.
The inside story only Allah knows , was this a test for them or an Azaab for them. But I recall the tsunami in 2004 which was very destructive but a more stronger earthquake in a more shallower and nearer to Acheh
took place ( i dont remember when exactly) and a strongest tsunami ALERT
than 2004 was announced for the whole SE Asia (since my interests are in phuket ) predicted with more possible destruction than 2004 was expected that send cramps on to my stomach BUT SUBHANALLAH NOTHING HAPPENED as Allah helped in 2004 too Alhamdulilah since we give zakat regularly.
my guess & justification was all would have run to masjids and went in prostration and i later I saw the news which was exactly like i thought including non muslims who ran to masjid and fell in prayer. So Allah ar rahman removed the worst danger I suppose as Allah did with Kaum al Yunus A.S.
So when people are just doing lip service and not from their hearts
this still could happen & if their hearts loose mercy towards its brethren
(inspite of following Islam ) such things could happen is my guess, But Still Its a guess ONLY ALLAH KNOWS.
