Thanks to God Most Gracious; the 8.6 earthquake did not cause catastrophe

If an earthquake causes a great disaster, what will people do? While if the earthquake passes mildly, what a great blessing this will be!

So we should show gratitude to God Most Gracious, that the latest Indian Ocean earthquake passed without harm.
People resorted to God, and God saves people if they resort to Him alone:

without resorting to their patron saints, patron imams and without their idols:

only to God Most Gracious the Creator of the earth and the planets with the peoples living on them.

This quotation is from the Wikepedia:
"After the earthquake, which took place about 500 kilometres (310 mi) south-west from Banda Aceh, people in Indonesia and India left their homes and offices in fear.

Amid crowded streets in Aceh people headed for higher ground. In Aceh women and children cried, as people's memories are still raw of a 2004 tsunami that killed 170,000 people in the province alone.

Others screamed "Allah Hu Akbar"(God is great) as they poured from their homes or searched frantically for separated family members.

Residents were seen fleeing to high ground in cars and on the backs of motorcycles. Patients were wheeled out of hospitals, some still lying in their beds with drips attached to their arms. And at least one hotel guest was slightly injured when he jumped out of his window."
