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.
This is the most progressive thing that has happened since the boy was born.”Praising eh donor, Akin-tola praised Ajibola for the display of love for Islam.
His words: “As usual, His Excellency Judge Aji-bola has demonstrated his characteristic foresight, unequalled mien for phi-lanthropy and unrivalled love for Islam. This man re-ally knows where Muslims should put their money.”
Abdulwahab was deliv-ered on Monday, May 7 at a white garment church in Mushin area of Lagos State, with a mini copy of the Holy Quran found in his hand.The birth of the baby ended the rift between his mother, Kikelomo, a Cos-metologist by profession and his father, Alhaji Abdu-lahi Irawo, who she claimed abandoned her throughout the 11-month pregnancy, fol-lowing her refusal to abort it.
The couple had sat down officially as husband and wife at the grand Islamic naming held in Mushin, Lagos.Kikelomo, who formerly lived with her mother at No 1, Shonde Street in Ijeshat-edo, reportedly moved with the baby to Akogun Villa, his husband’s mansion on Aderibigbe Street, Masha Kilo in Surulere area of La-gos State.
