The letters alif, lam, lam and haa, connected in the Naskh script and which read “Allah” have been found on a humble egg. The find has made the local news in Nottingham.
Asim Taj and his family held a celebration in their home to mark the birthday of the prophet in February. They believe this is why the word appeared on the egg shell. An expert from the University of Nottingham has not made a comment as to why the letters are on the egg but has confirmed the letters can be recognised as reading Allah.
Mr Taj, of Forest Fields, bought the box of eggs from an ordinary shop on Berridge Road. He told press;
“We were shocked and surprised. It is a miracle. Everybody is talking about it. I have heard stories like this from back home in Pakistan but I have not heard of it here.”
“People smile when they see it. They can tell straight away what it says.”
In Pure Spirit
We’ve certainly seen the media pick up stories when faces of Mary or Jesus have been spotted in toast and even made from Cheetos. The the script for “Allah” appearing on an egg not equally as miraculous or equally as un-miraculous?
Why do you think “God in food” stories have such an appeal to the media?
