Question

How should we as Muslims view the
earthquake that has happened recently? And
is there a Hadith mentioning one of the signs
of the end of time there will be three
earthquakes?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The happening of many earthquakes is
among the minor signs of the Day of
Judgement. The Prophet said: " The Hour
will not happen until knowledge will be
uplifted and many earthquakes will take
place." [Al-Bukhari] Also, among the signs of
the Hour is the occurrence of three major
landslides. The Prophet when
mentioning the ten signs of the Day of
Judgement said: "… and three major
landslides, one in the East, one in the West
and one in the Arabic peninsula... " [Muslim]
The earthquakes and other signs in this
universe are a lesson for the believer. Allah
frightens his slaves with such occurrences so
a Muslim should take heed and repent, and
fear that what happened to others could
have happened to him because of his sins.
Besides, among other lessons that a Muslim
learns from such an incident is that in the
eye of Allah the creation will have no value
when they disobey Him [He would careless if
they are destroyed or vanish] and should
remember by the occurrence of such
earthquakes the horror of the Day of
Judgement and the destruction that the
whole universe will undergo.

Allah knows best.
