The baby born with the Qur’an, Abdulwahab Irawo, has been handed a N1m cash gift for his up-keep and a scholarship to the university level.

The president of Islam-ic Mission for Africa and founder of Crescent Univer-sity, Abeokuta, Prince Bola Ajibola, handed out the gift to the boy last week when he paid a visit to the baby. This disclosure was made by a Professor of Islamic Studies and director of a non-governmental organi-zation, Muslim Rights Con-cern (MURIC), Dr. Is-haq Akintola, in a piece titled “Qur’an Baby and Doubting Thomases (Part 2)” and pub-lished in his blog. The piece which was post-ed on Tuesday chronicles the different “signs previously revealed by Allah to affirm the authenticity of Islam as His one and only religion”.Said Akintola, in the ar-ticle: “Something positive happened to the baby born with the Qur’an few days ago. Prince Bola Ajibola, president of the Islamic Mis-sion for Africa and founder, Crescent University, Abeo-kuta, visited the baby’s fam-ily and donated a whopping sum of 1 million naira for the baby’s upkeep. “Not only that, he also awarded a scholarship to the boy up to university level.
