Allah's name appears in a water melon

On 20 January 1996, just before the Feast of Ramadan, a farmer in Taiba-Ndiassana, Senegal, discovered to his surprise a watermelon on which the name of Allah had appeared. After the phenomenon had been confirmed by the local Muslim religious authority, it was then authenticated by the Islamic Institute in Dakar. According to Sheik Absoul Moneim Zein another word can also be seen on the watermelon just next to the name of Allah -- Hamdoulillah -- which means "Praise be to God". Last year similar signs appeared also on the eve of Ramadan. The same Sheik Moneim confirmed the appearance of the name Allah on the scales of a fish caught near Popenguine, home to the largest Catholic community in Senegal. Although European media devote little coverage to these events, newspapers in Africa have carried numerous articles about similar incidents in recent years, for instance, the baby of two Christian parents in Chad who was born with the sign of the Prophet Mohammed on his hand. Newspapers in Dakar published a photograph of a forest in Germany in which a verse from the Koran could be read in the shapes of some of the trees.
