The baby, who has since been named Ismail, was born in a church at the Oniyanrin area of Ibadan in September, the report from Nigerian Tribune
The preacher testified that he was one of the earliest callers at the Owode/Academy, Ibadan residence of the parents of the baby to witness one of God’s wonders.He said the mother, Jelilah, gave birth in a church at Oniyanrin area of the city, where the baby was seen clutching a strange object in his left hand.
“The woman, who took the delivery, thought it was one of the devilish drugs used by the mother to terminate the pregnancy, hence she threw it in the dustbin,” he explained.
 Amoo said that the said object, which later turned out to be a pocket-size Qur’an, was wrapped in a thread.
He said that with the forceful removal of the object from its hand, the baby became restless and continued to clutch an empty fist.
“Following his restlessness, a local cleric advised them to go and bring what they took from the baby which later turned out to be a copy of the mini Qur’an.”
“They were all afraid to touch it until I got there and I had to remove the remaining thread on the object and to my surprise, it was a beautifully- designed pocket-size complete noble Qur’an,” Amoo Said.
