Worshipers found fruit with Allah’s inscription
Worshipers who went to pay their respect to Haji Muhammad Tariq Hussain on the anniversary of his death found a sharon fruit in “Allah inscribed in it.
About 500 faithful had gathered at Madina Mosque when the fruit was sliced open and the mourners drew back in shock and amazement as “Allah” – which is the Arabic word for “God” – was written on its flesh.
One of the worshippers said: “You see a lot of these miracles coming up in Asian countries, but it’s one of the first big miracles that’s actually happened in the UK.
“People were astonished, people were amazed. They looked at the fruit, and it was absolutely amazing.”
The dramatic event happened last Thursday, with local councillors and a former mayor among those paying respect to Hussain, who died at the age of 63 last January.
He said, “We were there praying, and then the fruit was cut open, and God’s name came out in Arabic.
“People were shocked, surprised, amazed. It just shows that these things do happen.
“When the sharon fruit was cut open, everybody then started crowding together.”
He said: “Initially the fruit was looked at. Then we made the decision as a family that each of us would take a little portion as a blessing.
“We just cut the fruit in little pieces and ate it.”
