Arabic Script Appears Mysteriously On Boy’s Skin

Despite the advances medicine has made, there are still plenty of unusual conditions that appear mysterious, perplexing medical experts and defying all logic. Ali Yakubov, a nine-month-old baby boy from Russia left doctors stupefied after the word Allah allegedly showed up on his chin when he was only a few weeks old. Since then, verses from the Koran have emerged consistently on the infant’s back, arms, legs and stomach, before apparently fading away and being replaced with new ones. Ali was born in an ordinary family with no major inclination towards religion. His parents initially concealed the fact about the strange writings but when a phrase “Show these signs to people” appeared the news spread all around the province of Dagestan. The child has not undergone any dermatologic examination. He was diagnosed with coronary heart disease and cerebral spastic infantile paralysis at birth, but once the Arabic script emerged on his body, his medical problems vanished and he miraculously recovered. Madina Yakubova, the boy’s mother, stated, "Normally those signs appear twice a week - on Mondays and on the nights between Thursdays and Fridays."Ali always feels bad when it is happening. He cries and his temperature goes up. It's impossible to hold him when it's happening, his body is actively moving so we put him into his cradle. It's so hard to watch him suffering." Since the phenomenon of the passages from the Koran emerged on Ali’s skin, the child has become the focus of Muslim homage in his home province of Dagestan and the neighboring republics. Madina disclosed that people have shot videos and taken photos of Ali. They have also taken all his clothes as tokens and presented him with new ones. The council of Muftis of Degestan stated, "We interpret that sign as a warning to all Muslims of Russia and Dagestan, namely that they should turn to the wisdom of the religion of Allah, repent of their sins, and abandon their discord, conflicts, and the fratricidal confrontation that today shakes the blessed land of Dagestan and the entire Caucasus." Local MP Akhmedpasha Amiralaev said: "This boy is a pure sign of God. Allah sent him to Dagestan in order to stop revolts and tension in our republic."
