A nine month old boy has stunned doctors in Russia when writings from the holy Koran began appearing on his body, face, legs and skin. These writings from the Islamic holy Quran are believed to appear randomly before fading away and being replaced with new writings.
Ali's parents were also baffled after the word Allah appeared on Ali Yakubov's chin soon after his birth. After that scores of writings in the Arabic script have appeared almost all over his body.
Medics are denying that the letterings are from someone writing on the boy's skin.
The boy's mother, Madina Yakubov, said that she and her husband were not religious until the expressions started appearing all over his body.
Ever since these episodes started, the boy has turned into a focus of Muslim homage in his home province of Dagestan, close to war-ravaged Chechnya in southern Russia.
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."
The baby boy's mother said: "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."
