The good and the bad

200 queue to see pebblesSubmitted: 17 Sep 2002

Two pebbles were found by teenage brothers whilst on holiday in the Isle of Wight. One had natural markings spelling the name of Allah in Arabic. The other found a pebble, the markings on it spelling out Muhammed, a prophet in the Koran. Their father took the pebbles to an Islamic centre in Ilford where 200 people queued to see them. He said 'You could spend your whole life looking for something like this and not find it'.
