PHOENIX (AP) â€” The FBI alerted law enforcement agencies last month that an al-Qaeda terrorist now in detention had talked of masterminding a plot to set a series of devastating forest fires around the western United States.
The Shaykh, ‘Abdullah al-Faisal (hafidhullah) discusses the issue of Allah’s wrath and the natural disasters in a lecture entitled, “Natural Disasters.” It is a rarity as well as a gem since it is a subject that needs to be revitalized in the Ummah again so that it further formulates our Walaa’ (allegiance) and Baraa’ah (disavowal) to those whom the Islaamic ‘Aqeedah has clarified towards. It answers many questions such as how we are supposed to look at natural disasters when it happens to the Muslims and when it happens to the Kuffaar.
* Every year southern European forests are burning, set alight by mysterious arsonists. Sometimes we are told that ‘land-speculators’ are behind it, (the Jooozzz come to mind since they are always to blame, although no one ever offers any proof…) and sometimes, when arsonists are caught, their names are usually withheld, because their ‘privacy must be respected’- so once again, we ask: Who is burning down the ancient forests of Greece, Spain, the cork-oak forests in Portugal, and the forests in the Provence? Could it have anything to do with the economic jihad that OBL promised to wage against us, anything at all?

Muhammad was an arsonist too:
Bukhari:V1B11N617 “I would order someone to collect firewood and another to lead prayer. Then I would go burn the houses of men who did not present themselves at the compulsory prayer and prostration.”
When Muhammad halted at Dhu Awan, he accused its builders of being unjust and sent a band of jihadists to burn and destroy the freshly constructed mosque. He said to his band of hooligans, “Go to this mosque whose owners are unjust people and destroy and burn it.” (Tabari, vol.ix, p.61). His band of raging arsonists stealthily entered the bustling mosque and set fire to it when it was filled with people assembled for the evening prayer. The worshippers dispersed in utter terror. Allah promptly sent down verse 9:107, 110, justifying the destruction of opposition mosques. To further validate his gutting of this mosque, Muhammad concocted the story that he suspected that the builders of the ‘Mosque of Dissent’ were planning to assassinate him. Â
