the baby's legs shows the Quranic verse (13: 16) which can be translated as: "Allah is the creator
Since his birth, birthmarks in the form of Arabic script have been appearing on
Ali's body. First, there were individual letters but then Arabic texts began appearing,
the Russian-language Vesti news channel quoted his parents as saying on
"First, there was a hematoma on his chin. When the bruise went off, we saw the
word "Allah" Ali's mother Madina Yakubova said.
The TV channel reported that Ali was first diagnosed with "ischemic heart
disease of the second degree" and "infantile cerebral paralysis" in the
maternity clinic. However, after the inexplicable events began happening, he was
examined again and found healthy.
The incident has been drawing hundreds of Dagestani Muslims to Ali's home
everyday, prompting local authorities to guard the house round-the-clock.
We would like to share with you our thoughts regarding a
very important matter that is currently being witnessed in Russia.
Quranic verses and Hadiths [sayings of
Prophet Mohammad (s.a.a.w.s.)] are appearing underneath the skin of a
9-month old Russian Muslim boy in Dagestan,
This could be just a sign from Allah that
the Quran and Hadith are true, but it could also have a far more special significance.
This is possibly a Sign from Allah announcing the Al-Mahdi
will appear soon.
However, this boy most likely is not Al-Mahdi. For information

It is worth noting that Allah's prophets
had signs preceding them, including signs that occurred at the time of their
birth. Al-Mahdi is not a prophet, but certainly a very important
figure with a special mission from Allah. For information about the

Kizlar in Dagestan gave birth to a strange baby. On various parts of his body
appeared religious sentences in Arabic language. The parents of Ali who is 9
months old have now agreed to reveal these writings on his body.
mother said that these inscriptions have appeared since his birth and at the
approach of the sacred month Ramadan, these Koranic verses appeared on the skin.
The last verses that we filmed can be translated as Allah (Unique God) is the
Creator of everything. When these inscriptions begin to appear, the temperature
of the child rises and he begins to cry.
nurse Rasulova said: " from a medical point of view, I cannot explain that " .
The appearances of these Koranic verses remain a phenomenon which one can
explain scientifically. All that we can say it is that they appear with an
ascent of the temperature. Ali is the 2nd child of this family and we did not
notice this phenomenon with his sister and until this day, the scientific
authorities remain silent.
KIZLYAR, Russia, Oct 21 (Reuters) - A
"miracle" baby has brought a kind of mystical hope to people in Russia's mostly
Muslim southern fringe who are increasingly desperate in the face of Islamist
From hunchbacked grandmas to schoolboys, hundreds of pilgrims lined up this week
in blazing sunshine to get a glimpse of 9-month-old baby Ali Yakubov, on whose
body they say verses from the Koran appear and fade every few days.
Pinkish in colour and several centimetres high, the Koranic verse "Be thankful
or grateful to Allah" was printed on the infant's right leg in clearly legible
Arabic script this week, religious leaders said. Visiting foreign journalists
later saw a single letter after the rest had vanished.
"The fact that this miracle happened here is a signal to us to take the lead and
help our brothers and sisters find peace," said Sagid Murtazaliyev, head of the
Kizlyar region about 150 km (95 miles) north of Makhachkala, the sprawling
Dagestani capital on the Caspian Sea.
"We must not forget there is a war going on here," he told Muslim leaders who
had invited the press to witness what they unequivocally claim is a sign from

Dagestan, where 3 million people speak over 30 languages and whose ancient
walled city of Derbent claims to be Russia's oldest city.

an Islamist insurgency pervading all spheres of society in the north Caucasus --
a region named after the Caucasus mountains that divide Russia from
strategically important Georgia and Azerbaijan, where oil and gas pipelines flow
to the West.
Up to 2,000 pilgrims from Russia's 20 million Muslim population come daily to
see the docile, blue-eyed baby, whose pink brick house has become a shrine.
Green satin flags mark the way to the baby's modest family home in Kizlyar, a
small town of lime-coloured mosques, cornfields and dirt roads whose dust
bellows into the sky.
Dagestan's omnipresent armed police patrol the house while imams change photos
of Yakubov's arms and legs covered in Arabic script from previous episodes to
both jubilation and wails from the bustling crowd.
They say the fact Yakubov's 27-year-old father Shamil works in the police force
-- a regular target by militants -- is proof of divine intervention.
Holding up his right foot where a single Arabic letter remained from the latest
episode, Yakubov's 26-year-old mother Madina said she had no doubt the verses --
which first appeared two weeks after birth -- were connected to extremism.
"Allah is great and he sent me my miracle child to keep our people safe," she

stigmata, bleeding wounds in the hands and feet similar to those of Christ --
