Name of Allah on aubergine

On 20 February 1997, Mr Sidat, a fruit and vegetable wholesaler and chairman of the Madina Mosque in Hackney, north London, was amazed to discover on slicing an aubergine that the seeds spelt out the Arabic script for 'Allah'. Since the miracle, streams of people have visited Mr Sidat and seen the aubergine which he intends to cut up and share with family and friends. "We feel really blessed that this has happened to us and when I spoke to one of the elders at the mosque he said it must be a good omen."
