The news of a baby boy born with a Quran (Islam’s holy book) in his hand, in a white garment church quickly spread like wild fire on Tuesday, and since then it has caused nothing but controversies from all angles as it has generated into a religious altercation in both the cyberspace and reality owing to the fact that the baby was born in a church.
Medically, we all know this is not possible but let us, for the sake of argument, explore its spiritual possibilities. The baby was given birth to in a white garment church as was reported, I personally don’t know the type of white garment church it was but I would like to point out that a few people that have the knowledge of the operations some of these white garment churches know that it’s not only Christianity that is being practiced there.
Some of these white garment churches do indulge in Hisab; which is the use of diabolical means for consultations and this involves the use of evil spirits in some cases. Hisab is an Arabic word which has connections to Islam. There are other diabolical means by which these churches perform spiritual consultations but I won’t go into that.
So in a way we cannot say this particular white garment church is practicing one hundred percent Christianity. From this junction there’s likelihood that this Quran was implanted there metaphysically or it could be just a strange phenomenon which might have been caused by the ‘spirits’ in the environment for whatsoever reason.
There is the possibility of the church making up such a story for financial gain because anything is possible in our present society due to the harsh economic conditions. There are many sides to the story but I consider this story partially false although I have to admit, there have been other cases of a baby born with a Quran or with Arabic inscriptions written on the body in other countries but all lack valid proof.
If this strange phenomenon is actually true, what is the significance of such happening owing to the fact that the baby was given birth to in a church and the baby’s mother being a Christian? There is more to this story than meets the eye. . .
