Seeing this is just incredible. Incredibly tragic. May Allah have mercy on all of us.
For more than two terrifying, seemingly endless minutes Friday, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan shook apart homes and buildings, cracked open highways and unnerved even those who have learned to live with swaying skyscrapers. Then came a devastating tsunami that slammed into northeastern Japan and killed hundreds of people.
The violent wall of water swept away houses, cars and ships. Fires burned out of control. Power to a cooling system at a nuclear power plant was knocked out, forcing thousands to flee. A boat was caught in the vortex of a whirlpool at sea. It was chaos.
The country faces its worst crisis since the end of the second World War. All I can say is, Japanese people are showing tremendous brotherly unity, there is a strange calmness to them. A feeling that they are ‘All in this together’. The camaraderie is motivating even to a person totally unfamiliar with Japanese customs. I urge them to stay this united, and soon they’ll find life once again worth living. Be Strong!! Japan.
