On the afternoon of the 22nd, Christchurch residents faced another, much stronger earthquake. It shook the city during one of the day's busiest times; lunch time. Although it only registered at 6.3 on the Richter Scale, it was shallower and closer to the city than the last one which measured 7.1. I'm sure most of you've heard about the devastation that has gripped our country as almost all the International news channels have been running stories from the affected city.

For sure this is a reminder for us all to not get too occupied with THIS life and to rather think of our 'Akhira as we never know when we might be tested or when our time is.
I ask you all to please make Dua' for the people of Christchurch. They all need Sabr and Iman to be able to get over this trying time.
