Addition:Interesting that these gods send messages to only their faithful...an xian never finds an allah taco, and a muslim never finds a Jeebus tomato. And why don't atheists ever find any of these "messages"???
MOMBASA, Kenya (AFP) - A tuna fish caught in the Indian Ocean this week has excited Kenyan Muslims who are flocking here by the hundreds to see a Koranic verse apparently embedded in its scales.
Dubbed the "wonder fish" by locals in this port city, the 2.5-kilo (5.5-pound) tuna has attracted so much attention it has been placed in the custody of the National Fisheries Department for safekeeping, officials said.
The otherwise ordinary fish caught the attention of fishmonger Omar Mohammed Awadh who pulled it out of a catch when he noticed what seemed to be Arabic writing among the scales near its tail, they said.
Arabic scholars examined the fish and determined the writing was a Koranic verse meaning "God is the greatest of all providers," said Hassan Mohamed Hassan, an education officer with the National Museums of Kenya in Mombasa.
"This has been confirmed as a verse from the Holy Koran," said Sheikh Mombasa Dor, the secretary-general of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya.
"We believe that God brings these kinds of messages in many forms from time to time and that we should not only read the Holy Book, but practice what it says," he said.
Mombasa district commissioner Mohamed Maalim agreed.
"It is so clearly spelt," he said. "That is why we believe that Allah is sending a message to mankind."Did anyone stop to consider that since the inscription is so clear that someone may have caught the fish, put the inscription on it and tossed it back in the water? (Someone is probably having a big laugh right now.) Or maybe they are seeing things they WANT to see in familiar patterns in the scales that are similar to writing?...nope...it's ALLLLAH ...because apparently Allah is like the xian god and gets kicks out of playing games with people by leaving riddles in food, etc. instead of just showing himself.
Hundreds of Muslims and curiosity seekers flocked to Awadh's Takaungu Fresh Fish Shop to see the tuna on Friday, prompting concerns for its safety and its removal to a refrigerated locker at the fisheries department.
In March Muslims flocked to see a pair of fish found in a pet shop in the British city of Liverpool which appeared to bear the words "Allah" and "Mohammed" (pigs be upon him) on their scales.
Isn't this going against their holy laws of worshipping idols?
