In 1986 USA sent a space shuttle to the sky which they named “Challenger”
seventy three seconds after taking off, Challenger broke apart and fell down ashes over their heads, resulting in the death of all 7 crew members. (Wikipedia)
It was very rude to call a rocket “Challenger” then send it to the sky!
Whom were you challenging idiots?!
It’s said that “Challenger” was named after HMS Challenger, a British corvette 1858, which itself also suffered an ignominious fate. After great success it was decommissioned, broken up, and sold for her copper bottom. (Wikipedia)
They have to be more careful & polite in choosing names for their achievements, and remember that they can achieve nothing without the guidance and help of Allah, so they had better thank Him and submit to Him not challenge Him!
They said before about Titanic, “Not even God Himself could sink this ship”!
But it was sunk easily by a tiny iceberg.
Would they learn lessons from such disasters?? God says:
81 And He shows you His signs. So which of the signs of Allah do you deny?
82 Have they not traveled through the land and observed how was the end of those before them? They were more numerous than themselves and greater in strength and in impression on the land, but they were not availed by what they used to earn.
83 And when their messengers came to them with clear proofs, they [merely] rejoiced in what they had of knowledge, but they were enveloped by what they used to ridicule.
84 And when they saw Our punishment, they said," We believe in Allah alone and disbelieve in that which we used to associate with Him."
85 But never did their faith benefit them once they saw Our punishment. [It is] the established way of Allah which has preceded among His servants. And the disbelievers thereupon lost [all]. Surat Ghāfir (The Forgiver)
