Photos: Strange images of dead islamic clerics appear on mosque wall

Culled From: Vanguard

Barely a year after a child was reportedly born with a copy of the Holy Quran in Lagos and another born with an Islamic rosary, (Tesbah) in Sagamu, Ogun State. Last Tuesday, another amazing event occurred at Owode Onirin, Ikorodu, Lagos; as images of some clerics who died decades ago were believed to have made sudden appearances on the walls of Dawiz Central Mosque in the area.

When Vanguard visited the mosque, thousands of people and passers-by storm the mosque to have a glimpse.

The images were identified as that of late Sheikh Ahmada Tijani, (Algeria) Sheikh Ibraheem Niass, (Senegal) Sheikh Jamiu Bulala. (Nigeria)

Although the images were not clear as at the time Vanguard visited, but those who spoke to Vanguard said the images were clearer on Tuesday when they were first noticed.

According to Eye-witness: "The
images were noticed on
Tuesday September 3, on the
walls of the mosque which was
constructed a few months ago
and owned by Sheikh Musa
Alegbeleye."

It was gathered that four
months ago, the image of
Sheikh Jamiu Bulala Islamic
Cleric, who had died two
decades ago appeared first
faintly to the consternation of
Muslim faithful and they decided
never to make it public to creat
any doubt.

The strange occurence has
turned the serene Owode Onirin
area into a Makkah of sorts as
people thronged the area not
only to see but to also offer
some prayers. Right inside the
mosque, people were seen
holding bottles/satchets of
water muttering prayers and
shouting Allahu Akbar (God is
great). Some were even seen
bowing to the image.

Efforts to speak with the founder of the group and leader of the mosque, Sheikh Alegbeleye, was futile, as we were told he was sleeping after observing several vigil prayers.

Speaking on the development and an eye-witness, the President of Islamic society of Nigeria, Lagos State Mukadam Alhaji Samodu Onikoyi confirmed the appearance of the images. "We started noticing a very faint image which came with intermittent brightness on the inside wall of the mosque which were replica of the portrait of Sheikh Ibrahim Niass, Sheikh Jamiu Bulala and Sheikh Ahmaa Tijani engraved on the walls of the building."

How it Happened: "A member of the mosque Alhaja Idayatu Idera Afolabi first noticed it and she rushed out to inform everybody and when we saw it, we decided to cover it, because we thought if we announce it, people will think it is ruse that one is trying to play on their intelligence. But when I also saw it, I was greatly terrified, wondering how such thing could have happened".

"My thought was that the image would eventually disappeared but on the second day, it brightened more and started showing on all sides of the building which made us to still cover it untill it became it became public".

An eye-witness also disclosed that attempt was made by some individuals to wash off the images but to no avail; adding that the more they try to rub it off, the more the images become clearer.

  7. It is very possible cos nothing is impossible,Allahu gafurul raheem,Allah knows best,but my displeasure is the fact that they are bowing down,it is wrong and this can be termed as shrik,the best thing to do is to increase in supplications and seek more of Allah's mercy.may Allah guide us to the right path, Ameen
