Islamic scholar in Skokie, Illinois, USA, discovered a piece of tree bark
in front of his house with the word 'Muhammad' in Arabic carved into it
by insects. One day in May 2008, while watching squirrels run up the tree
in front of his house, Assad Busool heard a piece of bark hit the ground
with a loud cracking sound. When he looked at it closely, he was astonished
to see the word 'Mohammed'. "I said: 'What is the meaning of this?'
I have a holy tree in my yard."
Some Muslims in his community believe the markings on the 14-inch-long piece
of bark is a sign from heaven. "It's crystal clear, it says Muhammad,"
said Andala Mbengue, a cab driver from Senegal who saw the wood after prayers
at the American Islamic College in Chicago. "Allah is always putting
himself out there. Sometimes people ignore it, but he's always showing us
Scholars of Islam interviewed about this phenomenon said some Muslims view
such apparitions as reminders that God is everywhere in nature.
Busool teaches religion and Arabic at the American Islamic College in Chicago,
and is an Islamic judge who rules on family issues. He points to a verse
in the Quran to explain why insects might carve lines into wood to spell
the word Muhammad. The verse says that every living being on Earth sings
the praises of God in languages human beings can't understand. "They
don't know Arabic. To eat the inside of the branch and make that writing,
it's guidance from God, of course," said Busool.
Busool has shown the bark to a few people at the Muslim Community Center
in Chicago. He also showed it to about 50 people who had come to Friday
prayers at the American Islamic College. One worshipper, Walid Guerfal,
said the writing had left him in awe. "It's like a miracle from God,"

Benjamin Creme's Master confirms it is a sign manifested by Maitreya.
According to Benjamin Creme, editor of Share
International magazine, all the miracles are signs of the imminent
emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher, and his group, the Masters of
Wisdom. They are the custodians of the Divine Plan for this planet and are
returning now to show us the way out of our current difficulties and bring
the new teachings which will guide humanity towards its next evolutionary
step. Soon we will see Maitreya on television, interviewed on a major American
network and hear his call for sharing and justice, as the only way to peace.
Benjamin Creme writes: "Over many years Maitreya and his group of Masters
have saturated the world with miracles. All religious groups look for signs.
It is through the signs that they know the teacher is in the world or is
coming into the world. You only have to keep awake and you will see that
signs are everywhere. In every country in the world, in every religious
setting, there are signs of one kind or another."
His telepathic contact with a Master of Wisdom allows Benjamin Creme to
receive up-to-date information on the Maitreya's emergence and to expand
on the Ageless Wisdom Teachings. Through this contact Benjamin Creme's Master
regularly confirms whether a phenomenon is a miracle that was manifested
by one or other of the Masters. Most of the miracles are manifested by Maitreya
Himself, the Master Jesus or the Master Who was the Madonna.
