This chapter offers some observations on how the December 26, 2004 tsunami generally affected the formal implementation of sharia in Aceh. The tsunami severely damaged most coastal areas of Aceh and unexpectedly created a momentum for further pushing the implementation of sharia in the region, but whether or not the tsunami was the decisive factor in speeding up the application of sharia in Aceh depends much on the way the people conceived the catastrophe itself. Many Acehnese saw it as a spiritual test or even a punishment from God and saw it as creating an opportunity for accelerating the application of sharia in Aceh. Some other Acehnese, however, perceived the tsunami merely as a natural process (sunnatullah)—a geological shift under the earth.
