6.7 Earthquake...

Suddenly and in the middle of the night I woke up. Through my sleepy eyes I was sure the walls were shaking. Not shaking like someone is hitting them, but shaking like someone is moving them from a place to another. Well, I thought this is one hell of a dream..

Until my wife woke up also calling my name and saying EARTHQUAKE!! That is when I realized its a fact. Its an earthquake.

I dont know why at that moment I felt this is my end. I even told my wife to say al-shahadeh and just sleep!!! I did the same. But, what do you know, here I am alive and writing about the topic. Next morning we discovered it was a 6.7 earthquake. WOW!

The scary point is that a couple of days later, a deadly earthquake hits China. around 3000 people died. It could have been deadly in Japan as well!



Anyway, in Islam, Muslims who die in earthquakes are considered Shuhada; they go directly to heaven. So maybe thats why I slept peacefully that night.

That seems scary. And after watching that video O_O' that's really scary. Earthquakes are one of the reasons that hold me back from going to japan.
