Malay Official: El Nino is Punishment from Allah

KUALA LUMPUR: Kelantan deputy mufti Nik Abdul Kadir Nik Muhamad has attributed the El Nino phenomenon to the increasing social problems in the country, which have brought down the wrath of Allah on Muslims.

Nik Abdul asked all Muslims to stop their vices and anything that goes against religious rules immediately to enable Allah to shower his blessings on the believers.

He said that even though there were rules set by religion, not many were following them.

“There are those who don’t want Islamic law to be implemented and only choose verses in the Quran that suit them, causing Allah to rain down his punishment,” Nik Abdul said.
