Natural events that harm people such as earthquakes, floods, avalanches, tornadoes, droughts and fires are called natural disasters. For such disasters in the Qur’an evil term is used. The prayer we make to be protected from these calamities is the prayer of disaster.
Although it is not possible to prevent natural disasters, it may be possible to minimize the damage by taking precautions. Our Almighty Lord reminds us by command. ‘Take your action’ says. Yes, if the measure is material, the spiritual aspect is disaster prayer and other prayers.
Our Prophet (saas) also says: “There is no act as wise as taking action. Cover your food and water containers at night. Put out the fire before you sleep, don’t leave the fire burning.”
In addition, our Prophet (saas) advises us to give alms to protect ourselves from troubles and calamities.
