Sad what happened to these people, but would they ask the obvious? Here they are gathering to pray to a deity who (considering their theology) turns around and drops a minaret on some of them and kills them. IS there where the survivors start to believe the victims must not have been doing something rigt in the eyes of Allah because after all, Allah would not just kill innocent worshipers, right?

Even when Allah is the one doing the killing? Of course I am working from the angle that Allah controls ALL things and like the biblical god, nothing happens without his consent.

Majority of morroco is sufis. They are out of the fold of islam. Morroco is famous for black magic and fortune telling. So they deserve every punishment they get till they turn back and return to the stright path.

They must be getting to some unusul dealing and wheeling in that mosque.

Minerates are not from authentic islamic teachings. It was innovated much years later.

i appreciate your insert , but i prefer to explore the thoughts of OP not to explore the nature or the acts of those people

as for example , what if house destroyed upon it's people while they pray ? , what if someone died while he performin haj in mekkah , what if someone be killed inside the church ? what if earth-quake hit the country including mosques and churchs within it ?

i want to discuss the thoughts itself , if christian died like that inside church ? will it be proof that God hate this church ? i don't think so

will God kill every worshipper if such worship is against his will ?

i completely understand your view but actually , in responding to your question i can answer with full confidence that no , it's not neccesery to be right

35-45 And if Allah were to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving (living) creature on the surface of the earth; but He gives them respite to an appointed term: and when their term comes, then verily, Allah is Ever All-Seer of His slaves.

16-61 And if Allah were to seize mankind for their wrong-doing, He would not leave on it (the earth) a single moving (living) creature, but He postpones them for an appointed term and when their term comes, neither can they delay nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment).


i hope you can find the answer of your main question within those two verses ,
afterall , he allowed that to happen because their term came , what were they doing while their term come ! , allah is ever all-seers of his slaves

This good to tell you about this ..you asked where is allah ...?

(allah) God is with us watching everything

Anyone who does not die, but God willing even animals

In general, Allah is watching the universe ....The universe under the command of God ...OK ?


that muslim when he die on the good work as prayer or any Any act of worship to God that ( This is the greatest reward) why ? That indicate that God is satisfied about him ..


For that God chose the moment that is worshiped of it ..

We will die inevitable ...Every Muslim asks Allah by ( d'uaa ) to die he/she prayed ... he/she prostrated ( Sajid ) ...


There is a big difference between those who go to God ( die) are obedient and those who go to God are disobeyed

Death in the minaret is hope every muslim
