SHAFAQNA -Â A Muslim couple were amazed to find an egg with the name of Allah embossed on it.
Farid Jussab, 37, of Belgrave, Leicester, said his outlook had been rocked by the discovery of the phrase “None to be worshipped except Allah” in Arabic.
“I can’t sleep. I feel I have to let people know,” he said.
“I’m not the sort of man who prays five times a day and this is amazing.
“I’m going to keep the egg forever.”
Farid’s wife Anisa, was the first one to notice the marks on the egg.
He said: “My missus bought the eggs in Iceland last week because she wanted to bake a cake for me at the weekend.
“When she took the egg out she felt the marks with her hand and then looked and saw our god’s name on it, as well as other writing all the way around.
“I was sleeping and she came running upstairs to wake me.
“The sun was shining and I could see it perfectly. All the hairs on my arms stood up.
“We were both so shocked and surprised.”
Farid said he had spoken to a teacher at a local mosque who advised him to let the contents of the egg out to stop it becoming rotten.
Farid said: “He said I must make a hole and get the egg out and then eat the egg with my wife.
“Then I shall put the shell in a glass container where anyone can come and see it.”
Anisa, 36, said: “It’s a miracle and a blessing. It’s not something anyone has carved on the egg.
“These things appear and I’ve heard about this sort of thing in the roots of trees and in the sky.
“It is a sign and I think it’s a message to all Muslims to forgive and to have a clean heart.”
The couple have shown the egg to many Muslim friends and neighbours who agreed the message was a sign from God.
Farid’s friend Aslam Makda, 37, said: “It’s clearly Arabic and it says God’s name.
“It’s impossible that it could be a human engraving.
“This sort of message has been seen before on fish, aubergines and watermelons.”
