Where Is God in Haiti?
Lecture and Q&A Session with Sheikh Nuh Keller
“Allah suffices us, and is the best to rely on.” (Qur’an 3:173)
The recent earthquake in Haiti has destroyed homes, damaged infrastructure, and the Haitian government has now confirmed a death toll of 170,000 and estimated over 300,000 injured. To add to the disaster, the rescue and relief efforts are severely limited by a shortage of resources.
In light of such large-scale destruction, many are left asking how this could happen and are now searching for answers. Where is the Divine Mercy in all of this? Where is justice? Where is the Divine Wisdom? Many atheists are now using this as another example that God does not exist. Sheikh Nuh Keller will offer a reply.
This event will be on Saturday, February 13th, at 4:00pm GMT.
