Earthquake in Türkiye & Syria: “Why didn’t God stop it?”

Listen on your favorite podcast app!

On February 6th, a devastating earthquake hit Türkiye and Syria. Over 12,000 lives have been lost, and thousands more have been injured and displaced. When tragedies and disasters occur, it’s understandable to wonder, “Why did God let this happen?”

Are natural disasters a form of punishment from God? Are they a warning to turn back to Him? If Allah is Merciful, why does He allow suffering to exist?

Join host Mohamad Zaoud as he discusses these questions and more with Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy, author of the Yaqeen paper, “Why Do People Suffer? God’s Existence & the Problem of Evil.”
