For example, the source of megathrust earthquakes in the contact area between plates and the source of active underwater faults known as intraplate earthquakes. com, Monday.
In the last 5 years there have been at least 4 earthquakes with the center point located near Banten, precisely in the Indian Ocean, south of Banten.

The head of the Campus Da’wah Institute (LDK) Faculty of Da’wah and Communication Studies (FDIKOM), Muzammil Fatah said, calamities can be warnings or warnings for humans. Humans must also believe that God is the ruler of the universe.

“With this disaster, I hope that it can awaken people to return to the right path, and take care of the earth as well as possible in accordance with the provisions of Allah and His Messenger,” he concluded.

Try to observe how currently LGBT, corruption, Islamophobia and other matters such as celebrating the new year by burning money / firecrackers worth hundreds of millions while many poor people and orphans who have not been taken care of, blow the trumpet as if they want to forget the sad reality of unemployment and poverty and others. others clearly show what reality?
