A baby girl was born in Sokoto with Arabic inscriptions on her body and this development has left everyone in awe.
The child has Arabic inscriptions on her chest, thigh, and back as though they were tattooed there. She also has a birthmark that looks like the crescent-shaped moon – one of the symbols of Islam – on her ankle.
The child was born on March 2, 2019. Her birth has turned her parents’ home into a sort of Mecca as people troop in to see the unusual occurrence.
The baby is the fourth child of her parents, who have been married for 16 years now. According to Daily Trust, the child’s father, a Mobile Police officer named Alhaji Hussaini is based in Katsina.
The mother Saratu Yusuf, 24, of Garkan Sardauna Sokoto North Local Government, told Caliphate Trust that she never experienced anything unusual during the pregnancy.
The pregnancy went very smoothly much more than others. I had no complication, from the beginning to the day I gave birth at Police Clinic along Barth Road Sokoto.
The labour started at about 6 am and delivered exactly at 6pm.
We did not notice anything at the hospital until we got home when my elder sister wanted to bathe her, she discovered the inscription on her chest, thigh and back. She also has a crescent sign on her ankle.
So many people trooped to our house from within and outside the state metropolis, from Wurno, Rabah and other Local government areas. It got to a point when I had to flee my matrimonial home to my parents’ house to escape people’s disturbance.
The child’s mother also pointed out another peculiar thing about her “miracle baby”. She said the child can’t have her ear lobe pierced for earrings because several attempts to pierce the child’s ear lobe have proved unsuccessful.

The father, who was in Katsina at the time of the delivery, said on receiving news of the baby, he was so full of anxiety that he could not even sleep on that day.
Preparations are being made for a naming ceremony for the baby. It should have been held earlier but due to the father’s absence, it was scheduled for Saturday, March 16.
Sultan of Sokoto Muhammad Saad Abubakar was amazed when the baby was taken to his Palace. He expressed total submission to Allah for His wonders. The royal father donated N100, 000, a ram, and 5 pieces of clothing materials to the family. He urged the mother to take exceptional care of the child.
