Baby born with a Quran in his hand

:insane:
More reactions have continued to trail the story of the baby born on Monday with a copy of the Quran in his hand at 1, Sonde Street, Ijeshatedo, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

According to the mother of the baby, Mrs. Kikelomo Ilori, 32, a cosmetologist, her husband deserted her when she refused to heed his advice to abort the pregnancy.

While some readers described the story as outright fabrication by the mother of the baby to to make money, others described it as one of the mysteries of Allah to demonstrate his presence in the affairs of humans.

Reacting to the story, Dr. Akinyemi of the All Souls Infirmary, Agege, laughed it off, saying it was a fiction.

“Wonders shall never end in this country. I have not seen such a thing since I started my medical practice many years ago. It is medically impossible. I’m not saying there is no magic, but the question we should ask is: ‘How did a Quran get into the baby’s hand?’ So, it’s not possible”, Dr Akinyemi told P.M.News this afternoon.

According to Dr. Rotimi Adesanya, “the story is not true. It is not possible for a foreign object to be found in the hand of a baby during birth.”

Dr. Paul Akintelure of Broad Hospital, Ikotun, said: “medically, there is nothing like that. There is no way an inanimate object like the Quran will enter the womb and come out with the baby in its palm. The matter should be investigated. It is strange.”

A matron at the Ikeja General Hospital, Lagos, dismissed the story outright, saying it was not possible for a baby to be born with a Quran in his hand. “What kind of nonsense is that? It is not possible. I have been in this hospital for a long time and I have taken delivery of several babies to know that such stories are not true. It cannot be proved scientifically,” she stated.

She said a similar incident was broadcast on a Lagos television programme sometime ago and when it was properly scrutinised, it was found to be a ruse.

Miss Becky Eromosele, a matron at Blue Sky Hospital in Egbeda area of Lagos also debunked the claim. She said she has been involved in the delivery of babies for seven years and has never seen such happen.

But Miss Eromosele said something similar happened in Benin City, Edo State about two or three years ago.

According to her, a sister took delivery of a baby who had a crystal white sheet of paper in its hand. And in the paper, it was written in gold, ‘Jesus is coming soon.’

The incident makes me to believe that anything can happen,” she said mockingly.

In her own reaction, a student, Anabell Nadal, said: “I have never witnessed such an incident before. I believe that something great and wonderful will soon happen in Nigeria.”

In her comment, Adebimpe Olaniya said: “What happened showed that the baby’s mother should have been a prominent person in the society because from her story, she had taken several drugs to abort the pregnancy, but God did not allow it to happen. I believe the baby was truly sent by God.”

Adeniyi Akinola, younger brother to the landlady of the house where Kikelomo delivered the baby said: “With God, all things are possible. The Bible says when it gets to the end time, you will see different strange things happening. I don’t see anything controversial about the baby.”

Bose Adeshina, a trader said: “I believe it is the Lord’s doing. My advice is that when a woman is pregnant and her man abandons her, she should not abort the foetus. She should keep and protect the pregnancy. What happened now is a lesson to women who have taken abortion as their pastime.”

A businessman, Sanyaolu Femi, expressed doubt about the story. “When I heard about the story of the baby born with a Quran in his hand, I did not believe it. So, I went to the house to see things for myself. Now, I believe. I pray for the boy to survive and become an important person in life,” he stated

A Muslim scholar, Ustadh Tajudeen Owode, described the birth of the baby as a sign from Allah to mankind to be holy. “The baby’s birth is one of the signs from Allah. He sent the boy with Quran in his hand to remind us of the need to be holy. I can tell you that the baby’s birth is a miracle. All those doubting the story are fools. They are dead spiritually. The story is real,” he stated.

An old Islamic cleric at Ijeshatedo, Surulere, Alhaji Usman Odekunle said: “I want people to check themselves and accept God. The incident serves as a lesson to other women that whenever they are pregnant, they should not abort, because you don’t know what the child will become. The story is true.”

Ifeoma Okafor, a student of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, described the story as unbelievable. “It is unbelievable. When I heard of it, I decided to go to the house to confirm it. I saw the baby myself with the Quran in its palm,” she said.

To Vivian Opara, a student of the Lagos State University, LASU, the story sounds mysterious. “I got the information today and I told them it is not true. My reason is that people are going through tough times financially and this can make them go the extra mile to create something out of nothing. My question now is that since the mother said she is a Christian, why didn’t the baby come with the Bible? Finally, I will say it is mysterious,” he said.

Alhaji Imam Sulaimon, a.k.a. Were Nise Oluwa, a Muslim scholar, said: “What I can say is that it is the work of God. I witnessed a similar one in West Germany where Lailah-ilalahu, meaning There is no King but God, was written on a grass. The mother is a Christian before God granted her favour. This is a great thing done by Almighty Allah. There is nowhere God cannot perform miracles.”

Whatever the evidence & arguments against, there will be people who'll believe it, and offer it as proof of the truth of their magic man.

Must have been a very small Quran. Did he have a microscope in the other hand with which to read it?

Small enough to put in the baby's hand when it's arms are free from the womb. Then when the rest of it comes out the witlesses can claim that the baby was born holding the koran. :roll:

Surely there's something contradictory here beneath the surface with a Quran coming out of a woman's vagina?

Religions really are idiocracies. The more crazy bollocks you believe and ascribe to your deity, the more faithful, blessed, and respected you become among your peers.

Give it 20 years and Nigeria will have messianic cult on its hands, and the killing will commence. You read it here first. :coffee:

Yep, surely it should have been shat out of a man's arse instead?

Much like the original, some might say.

That would take some amazingly fast work on the part of the person planting the book.

In my experience, once the shoulders deliver, the rest of the baby comes out in a really quick spurt - I don't think there's any way you could get something into the hands, and have any noticeable time before the rest of the baby is delivered.

It's not like the little critters are pushing their way out arms-first, like a diver entering the water.
