Ulasan: Kebakaran hutan berlaku setiap tahun seperti juga banjir yang melanda Kelantan saban tahun. Namun kebakaran kali ini adalah yang paling buruk dalam sejarah Australia. Ia menyebab kan banyak kematian dan juga melibat kan banyak tempat, bukan nya satu kawasan saja.

Bagi kita orang Islam perlu lah menjadikan kejadian seperti ini sebagai iktibar bahawa kuasa Allah yang mencipta langit dan bumi tidak ada siapa yang boleh melawan. Kita perlu berusaha dan selebih nya berdoa dan bertawakkal.
