'God signed the tsunami'

Proof, according to Mohamed Faizeen, manager of the Centre for Islamic Studies in Colombo, is a satellite picture taken seconds after the tsunami smashed into Sri Lanka's west coast near the town of Kalutara and as it was receding.
"This clearly spells out the name 'Allah' in Arabic," Faizeen said, pointing to the shape of the waves - a gigantic "E" complete with whorls and sidewaves that do indeed appear to combine to resemble the Arabic script for the name "Allah".
The picture was taken by the DigitalGlobe Quickbird satellite on December 26 at 10:20am local time, shortly after the moment of tsunami impact. It can be viewed at the website "Allah signed His name," Faizeen said. "He sent it as punishment. This comes from ignoring His laws."
He likened the tsunami to the Old Testament account of floods being sent by God in the time of Noah as punishment for those who had drifted from His ways.
He added that he had visited the mainly Muslim Ulvae, near the major town of Batticaloa, and found that a madrassa - an Islamic religious school - had been left untouched while 400 houses around it had been flattened with great loss of life.
The shorelines of many Asian countries hit by the waves had become playgrounds for Westerners and errant Muslims. Vices such as prostitution and drinking were rife, the cleric said.
"Allah first sends small punishments - like loss of business. If we ignore the warning, He sends bigger ones - loss of life. If we still ignore the warnings, the big punishments, like earthquakes and tsunamis will come."
Faizeen said areas of Sri Lanka mainly populated by Muslims were the hardest hit and that the waves were aimed at Muslims in Indonesia and Sri Lanka who he said had strayed from God's ways.
The island is around 70 percent Buddhist, 15 percent Hindu, 7.5 percent Muslim and 7.5 percent Christian.
Another Muslim leader, Muhammed Fawmey of the International Islamic Youth Front, said he too believed the tsunami was sent by God.
"He clearly signed His name in the waves," said Fawmey, who said the Arabic script in the waves had suddenly "appeared to me as in a vision" when he was staring at the satellite picture.
"The Koran says people can be punished through water or through fire," he added, referring to Islam's sacred scripture.

  1. A LETTER TO ISMAIL RASHEED!

    Dear Ismail Rasheed,

    After reading most of the posts u have posted, I have realized that u have many misconceptions about Islam. You aren't aware of Islam properly. So I request to check the original teachings of Islam before criticising them That would be more professional. Just enter this site to find answers to most of ur queries. Answers to most common questions asked by non-muslims! This will be a good start.

    I think u are an atheist. I feel it strange that u don't realize the existence of a God. After ur death can't there be a life? What will happen to the killer and the victim? Will they be same afterlife? What is the justice if the killer lives happily in this world and the victim just cease to exist? Who created u if not God? What will happen after ur death? Hell and heaven doesn't exist? You may claim say so. But in reality hell exists. I am sure of this. You maybe also sure about ur view. But if ur view is true I am not going to be a loser even if i do believe in hell. But if ur view is false and indeed it is, then in the hereafter u will be amoung the losers. Think once more about ur future.

    If u have any question about Islam, I am very happy to answer you. Please let me know, what made u leave Islam if u were an ex-muslim?

    Your brother in humanity,
    Jao

    Maldivians by nature are not offensive , as I can see from the comments against your ramblings are in a mild tone. It doesn't mean we are not insulted. Having an intellectual discourse is one thing..But you guys are lucky to be alive with the shit load of hate you are spreading..If you want freedom and acceptance first show us an example of yourself..Everyone I have talked to about this blog totally reject you guys as attention seeking hate filled perverts. What was your agenda again..Making more people hate you?
