Dengue and Floods because of Sins?

There is some speculation on blogs and social networking websites as to whether the floods and dengue are due to sins. I think it is ridiculous to say that they are a result of sins. Dengue is a result of an ineffective government which wasn’t prepared while the floods are a result of not having a proper drainage system.

What is due to sins, however, are leaders today. While they live in mansions of gold and have billions in their Swiss accounts, two thirds of the population lives on two dollars a day. Not to mention various other problems. The question is, why do we have such leaders? Let’s focus on our situation and our acts.

Suicide bombings, blasts, murder of journalists, butchering of minorities, black magic, gambling, child abuse, interest based transactions, fortune telling, mobile snatching, theft, fraud, murder, robbery, alcohol consumption oppression, destruction, molestation, abduction, fornication, exploitation, and it goes on. Look at the way we treat women. Domestic abuse, rape, dowry killings, acid attacks, human trafficking, honour killings, female foeticide, female infanticide, forced marriages, harassing women in public, turning wives into servants, depriving daughters of inheritance, etc, etc, etc. The list goes on and on. The list is endless.

People blame the government for being corrupt and yet take bribes. People blame leaders for not spending on education and yet can’t educate one poor child. People blame the government for not keeping the country clean and yet spit paan and urinate on sidewalks. People blame leaders for fake degrees and yet buy fake exam certificates. People blame leaders for their affairs and yet fornicate. People blame leaders for swindling the public and yet those with businesses cheat customers. People blame politicians for being liars and yet lie habitually. People blame the government for load shedding and yet have their meter reading altered to pay less for electricity. People blame the government for not spending on the poor and yet don’t do sadaqah and many don’t even pay zakat.

Even if we got good leaders, not everything will change. Will every husband suddenly become wonderful if we get good leaders? Will the way people treat women change if we get good leaders? Will people stop practicing black magic if we get good leaders. Will all the sects, the disunity, and the hatred among Muslims turn into love if we get good leaders? Will everyone stop lying, backbiting, and start praying daily if we get good leaders? Will every human being become generous and kind if we get good leaders? Will all the child abuse stop if we get good leaders? Will every youngster out there stop teasing and harassing girls if we get good leaders? Will children become obedient to their parents if we get good leaders? I can go on and on.

We need to change ourselves so that we can be blessed with leaders who will look after the affairs of the country.

  1. I would like to quote Jhon Stephen that Load Shedding and Violent Protests in Punjab and all that affairs is happening not because of us but because of poor administration . Once again after thinking for a moment it is very clear that drone attacking in KPK is not done forcefully . Pakistani Gov had allowed it . Target killing in Capital of Sindh is due to MQM party . If and only if things can go better if everyone become united including our leaders and administration parties . I personaly feels that there will be a huge turn from every angle if there will be UNITY FAITH AND DISCIPLINE .

  2. Load Shedding and Violent Protests in Punjab, Dengue in Lahore, Target
    Killing in Karachi, Drone Attacks in KPK, And Anti Pakistani Element in
    Balochistan. All this is because we are corrupt, we not hypocrite if
    not then then why all this is happening? Think For a Moment

  3. Well according to me it is right not to believe this that dengue is due to our sins . The thing is the world is very advanced now and thinking that everything is happening due to our sins i guess that will be wrong . What i consider is that poor drainage and sanitation is the major cause of Dengue , and if we talk about our leaders it is somehow true that we brought them at this level but the real truth according to me is that it is not WE who brought them . They are having enough money and power to buy any person who is given 6 thousand per month !! 1 lakh for 10 votes doesnt hurt him …..

  4. i want to bring your attention to the fact that these bad leaders ruling upon us are not seperate from our actions either.

    I brought that to your attention. I don’t think you bothered reading the article. You didn’t even spell my name correctly. It shows how much of a hurry you were in to write a comment.

    I dont know what stops you or haunts you to accept the fact that these happenings are just due to our sins

    The people affected are the poor, who are mostly religious, and don’t even have the means to sin. Many are bearded, women are burka clad, and of course, innocent little children. Apparently Allah SWT chose such people to punish for sins. Why didn’t the rich, the corrupt, the alcoholic, and those who visit places of sin get affected? Allah SWT chooses innocent little children to punish for our sins? When it rains in Pakistan it gets flooded because of sins, but when it rains in other countries, it never gets flooded. I guess it is only because people in other countries are really religious, regardless of their promiscuous lives.

    dont you accept the fact that these leaders are chosen by none other than ourselves,

    Who said we select leaders? All the results are manipulated during election time.

    P.S. All said and done, one thing is certain. Your comment is a result of my sins. 😀

  5. Mr. Yosha’!

    Your article is as confusing as your mind. You say that these floods and
    dengue or other catastrophes are not due to sins rather these are the
    ultimate result of the mis management of the Government. I dont know
    what stops you or haunts you to accept the fact that these happenings
    are just due to our sins but i want to bring your attention to the fact that
    these bad leaders ruling upon us are not seperate from our actions either.
    dont you accept the fact that these leaders are chosen by none other than
    ourselves, that women are not disgraced by other than ourselves, child abuse is \
    not taking place not due to people other than us……then if our own actions
    are mis managed, then whats the harm in accepting the fact that we
    by all means deserve a lashing from the heavens as we are getting…..
