Controversy Over Baby Born With Quran

A big controversy is raging in Lagos following the birth of a baby boy said to be clutching a miniature Holy Quran at birth. The baby was born at a white garment church in Mushin, Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria.

While some dispute the claim, others say it is possible. A large crowd gathered at 1, Sonde Street, Ijeshatedo, Lagos home of the boy’s parents yesterday, as news of the birth spread rapidly.


His mother, Mrs. Kikelomo Ilori, 32, a Cosmetologist, told P.M.NEWS that he was born on Monday after she had carried the pregnancy for about 10 months. The single mother claimed she was abandoned by her husband who denied responsibility for the pregnancy and encouraged her to abort it. The woman told P.M.NEWS yesterday: “When I refused to abort the pregnancy, he deserted me, saying ‘that is your own problem’.” Mrs. Ilori expressed surprise at the birth of the boy. She added that the nurse who delivered her of the baby was physically challenged, but went about it commendably.

“When my baby was delivered holding a Quran in his hand, the nurse said the Quran should be thrown away. But I insisted my mother must see it before any action could be taken,” Kikelomo, who is a Christian, further explained.

Corroborating the story, Senior Rev. Victoria Yetunde Dada said during the pregnancy, Kikelomo was always coming to her for prayers and counselling.

“I advised her not to abort the pregnancy because she might die in the process. Again, I told her the foetus was sent by God and will be great,” Apostle Mother Dada told our correspondent. Controversy has continued to trail the seemingly spurious claim.

Reacting, Medical Director of Bodet Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Dr. Bode Tawak said scientifically, it was not possible for a baby to be born holding a Quran.

“How big is the baby’s hand to hold the Quran? How big is the Quran? How did the Quran get into her mother’s womb? I don’t know how a Quran can get into a womb. But there are things you can’t explain,” Dr. Tawak responded. He said while the incident cannot be explained medically, in Nigeria many mysterious things happen. A Kaduna-based medical practitioner, Dr. Munir Yusuf said from a medical point of view, it was not possible, but added that depending on the size of the Quran, it was possible metaphysically.

He explained that if the Quran is small enough to pass through the diameter of the vagina, with the child, it is possible. In the same vein, a herbal medicine practitioner, Chief Dr. Bola Adegunloye believes nothing is impossible, but said too much importance must not be placed on the incident.

    Why all these hullabaloo about this incident. I think the most important issue is: what is the content of the book? Not every word written in Arabic is talking about Islam. If the book is divine, it will prove Jesus is the saviour of the world! Jesus said He is resurrection and life. And that if ye believe not, ye shall die in your sin. John 11:25, John 8:24

    The God of Christianity is not the same as the one of Islam. I dont know why ppl are saying He is the same but different variation.
    Stick to what you know and we’ll see who goes to hell.

    My ppl let stop arguin over dis issue. There was a time in lagos, dey say d name of God was grow frm d ground, some years a child was born ‘written, jesus is coming on his pam’ in USA. Now a child is born with quran. dis is end time: a time of confusion, a time of disaster, false miracles. Wot i av 2 say is dat, believe there is God in ur own ways. 2 my fellow yoruba’s, and people of d west. Is dis not a tragedy 2 course problem 4 dis side of d country?( boko). Think twice b4 u say anytin. Thanks

    It’s indeed true that if God were to come on earth to preach to people, those who will not believe will not believe, after seeing God, they’d still want to ask for Miracles. Some may even say that the only way they’ll believe is for God himself to bow for them. What I mean is that some will ask for ridiculous Miracles…… Why is it that some people are always adamant to correction? Why is it that some human beings are always adamant to a fault? For God sake, I thought we were meant to be human beings not animal (i.e those without reasonable faculty)………. We have heard of miracles and will still continue to hear of it………. I thought miracles were meant to be unexplained…so, why are people comparing scientific knowledge with spiritual knowledge? If you so much believe in the ability of science to explain everything, then science should be able to explain the secret behind life and death and some other things like why there is sky above, why there is gravity on earth to pull us back to earth, the forces behind nature and so on. For example, science tells us that as soon as the heart stops pumping blood or ceases, then, one dies but what keeps us living? They don’t seem to know… These are the questions which can only be answered through spiritual knowledge. It is only through religions that we know about the secret behind the existence of life (i.e God)…….. Someone said a boy opened his palm and said Jesus is coming soon…. Now what I want to ask is that have you seen it in Islam where it is said that Jesus is not coming back to earth? As much as you unbelievers hate to believe it, it’s a fact proven that the only religion on earth that can explain in details what we are to face in the hereafter is Islam… The only religion that is filled with spiritual knowledge is Islam…….. The only religion that accepts all the prophet of God as one is Islam….. The only religion that shows that both Adam and eve are guilty of eating the fruit together (i.e, one not deceived by the other) is Islam……. The only religion that gives details on how best to live our lives (i.e. How God wants us to live our lives) is Islam…… The only religion that hold brings all prophets of God under one umbrella is Islam……… Note (Jesus was not said in the Bible to follow Moses’ religion…he rather brought his own religion (christianity) according to Christians, even though it was never said in the Bible that Jesus was a Christian…….. It’s only in the Islam that the Holy book Al Quran cannot be found to contain any mistakes……. A Christian once said that there are more than 50,000 errors in the Bible… I asked myself this Question: ”then why is he a Christian?”……. Only then did I realize that there are many people like him who knows that christianity is not the way and also would never accept Islam not because they think Islam is not right but because they just hate Islam……what’s the point stressing yourself on what will never benefit you in the hereafter? I guess it’s the choice they made and they must be ready to face the consequences of their actions too……… As for me, so far it was being said that the Quran is small enough to pass through, then I believe it’s a miracle but that doesn’t change the fact that Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W) is the last prophet of God………………. So go on, live the way you can, believe in whatever you believe in but It doesn’t change the fact that the only true religion is Islam………..
