    •  Hundreds of sites and newspater are reporting: Koran phrases appear on Russian baby’s skin

      Allegedly, the words appear on the child’s arms, legs and stomach of the nine month old Ali – before fading away and being replaced with new verses.

    • The story has attracted considerable attention from not just the Muslim media but it has been reported even by Ruiters India and ABC News.   
    • However, this miracle happens to be a skin disease called Dermatographic urticaria  (also known  as  dermographism,  dermatographism  or “skin writing”) is a skin disorder seen in 4–5% of the population and is one of the most common types of urticaria, in which the skin becomes raised and inflamed when stroked or rubbed with a dull object.
    • As it turns out this alleged miracle that has caused so much uproar is just a skin disease. The writings are made by a selfish mother who torments her child to garner attention.  In a civilized society this woman would be charged with child abuse and her baby taken away from her. But in an Islamic world, hungry for miracles she receives homage.
