Considering the Saudi links to the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, including being the birthplace of Osama bin laden, it seems 'almost' like divine justice that the most important symbol of the ideologies of the terrorists saw death and destruction on the anniversary of the attacks. May the victims' souls rest in peace.

I don't know if God exists, so you cant really 'hate my god', I think.
Not quite 'repeat version' in that it wasn't deliberate.
I don't know about God, so I can't really blame Him. In fact, the 'wrath of God' was suggested to me by some Shia muslims, a possibility that I think never occurred to previous commenters.
You get me, bro :D
Hehehe I loved all the outraged responses :D :D :D :D :D
1. Dunno if God exists. 2. Ditto. 3. I was thinking 'symbolic' more than 1-for-1
4. I was thinking crane victims,but yes, 9/11 victims, too.
What 'celebrating', 'pleasure', 'satisfaction'? You are jumping to way too many conclusions, just calm down.
I haven't any Christian claim any such thing. Have you?
Give them time....
Some comments appearing now, but no 'Praise Jesus!' ones as far as I can see...
Tell me when you find some.
Just wondering why people assume that all Christians are Holy Rollers or Bible Thumpers.
It's just easy to bully Christians (and Buddhists and Jews and Hindus and Scientologists and ...) 'cos they won't try to behead you or blow you up.
I was thinking 'symbolic', that's how. Particularly since it was nature (freak sandstorm, then thunderstorm) that toppled the crane.
Just because you're 'struggling', did you happen to consider: Mecca while on Haj, but NOT under a gigantic falling crane ripped from its supports by nature's fury?
A gigantic falling crane equates to an almost instant death, that is a merciful death. As for the survivors, I am unsure of God'd wisdom to their regard.
Surely that can't be the best death your imagination can give you! Are you really 'struggling' to find a better way to die, or is it some sorta, I dunno, attempt to elevate an horrific accident in the place you'd considered immune to such things?
Can your imagination think of a more befitting death?
Like I said before:
...NOT under a gigantic falling crane ripped from its supports by nature's fury.
Fair enough. According to Sunni theology the one who dies beneath a collapsed building is a martyr. [Sunan Abu Dawud - 3111]
Man, the 100+ victims' families must be wishing the mosque had collapsed instead of the crane, huh?
Life is something you hope for; Death isn't something you wish for. Our dead, as are those that died in 9/11 are perhaps in heaven having died the martyrs death.
I agree, of course, that no one wishes for loved ones' deaths.
I was just commenting on how if the mosque had collapsed instead of the crane, then (according to the 'sunnah' you quoted), the victims would be martyrs - that's what they'd hope for.
I am saying martyrs are those that died under the crane, as well as those that perished when part of the mosque collapsed due to the falling crane.
But that's going against the Sunnah you quoted itself. Isn't that not allowed in Islam?
I haven't gone against the Sunnah. I consider a crane to be a building of sorts; others are free to describe a crane as something else.
Well, that's obviously a big stretch, bordering on.... well, you say it.
A building is a building is a building. A crane is a vehicle, not a building. Anyway, whatever helps you think they are now 'martyrs', I guess.
I was going by how certain muslims claim natural calamities as 'signs from Allah'.
The tsunami example you quoted deliberately ignores the coincidence of date.
Asking any question is not a stat of mind, but a request for opinion. Don't overreact.
