Earthquake are recent intervention of climate change in modern times.Earthquakes are usually caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two blocks of rock or two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little. During the earthquake and afterward, the plates or blocks of rock start moving, and they continue to move until they get stuck again. The spot underground where the rock breaks is called the focus of the earthquake. The place right above the focus is called the epicenter of the earthquake.
Here we have to say that praying is necessary in nowadays as the recent climate change seen in different parts of the world it would be very destructive. We must pray to Allah Almighty to forgive our sins those are almost sky-high nowadays.
