The following post is VERY DIFFERENT from all other posts on my blog. It might even be very heavy on the heart, but we can't turn our faces away from REALITY. Some of you might be doing a lesson on earthquakes at home. As this topic can be discussed on many levels young and old. Following are some resources you may like to use.  The resources are geared more towards older kids or mature kids (regardless of age) and most of all for ourselves!!!

Lecture by Muhammad Al Shareef on Thamud The Perished Nation of Petri
