Disasters: A Systematic, Organizational and Patterned Natural Phenomenon (An Analysis of the Letter of al-Taghabun (64) Verse 11)

  • Uswatun Hasanah

Abstract

Allah swt is called Khalik, because only Allah is able to create everything. The creation of Allah swt is called a being, whether in heaven, on earth or between them. There are six kinds of beings God created: angels, spirits, humans, animals, plants and all kinds of things in nature. In addition, God also created four flavors that surround the human heart, namely happiness, sadness, grace and misfortune. Among the four variants of the taste created by Allah swt, disaster is the most unexpected presence. A total of 77 times, the word misfortune is mentioned in the Qur'an. Spread over 56 verses and 27 chapters. One of the letters of al-Taghabun (64) verse 11 is a verse that provides an important explanation of the disaster as a natural, systematic and patterned natural phenomenon. The explanation is that disaster is a certainty that God gives to every soul throughout life. As if there was some kind of rule that dared to live, dared to face disaster. Disasters do not just come once in a lifetime, but can happen over and over and over and over again. Two approaches can be taken to understand the dangers of qauliyah and kauniyah. Qauliyah approach is based on faith. Through prayer intercession and patience can eventually lead people to the understanding of the purpose and wisdom behind the disaster. In a sense, the unfortunate events can be understood through the authority of the owners and also by the experts. How a catastrophe can take place on the basis of the precautionary measures taken by humans. There is always an answer to the occurrence of a natural phenomenon that science can prove.
