An extremely rare natural pearl has been discovered in the sea of Bahrain with the word “Allah” on it in Arabic. The beauty about this pearl the Word ALLAH too is natural as certified by the Kingdom Of Bahrain – Ministry of Industry & Commerce- The Gem & Pearl Testing Laboratory of Bahrain as a Natural Pearl.

(Note : Certificate attached)

The owner of this rare gem, who intends be anonymous, states that the pearl was bought by him a couple of year ago in Bahrain and had immediately stumped on its exclusivity. The owner initially thought the word “Allah” was manually engraved, however, after several tests and certification it has been established that the Word “Allah" itself is as natural as the pearl.

Presently, the pearl doesn’t show any kind of erosion and is in intact in quality and essence. The owner feels that the pearl is a gift from God himself and is priceless.

Bahrain, the land of pearls, has been in the forefront of pearl diving for years now and such a discovery only adds up to its reputation and status.

In literal sense, pearls and corals are said to be found only from salt waters. How is it then that they are stated to come out from both the sweet and salt waters ? The answer is that the seas contain both the sweet and the salt waters; therefore, whether it is said that these things come out from the combination of both, or from both kinds of waters, it would be one and the same thing. And it may well be that further investigations might reveal that both these things originate in the sea at the place where springs of sweet water gush outs from the sea bed; and in their birth and development combination of both kinds of the water plays its part.

Most importantly, in Bahrain which has been famous for its pearl-fisheries for centuries, there exist springs of sweet water at the bottom of the Gulf.

The owner cites a quote from the Holy Quran that, “The aspect of power in 'Allah' is conspicuous, the aspect of the blessing and praiseworthy qualities also is not hidden. It is a blessings of God that these valuable things come out from the sea, and it is His Providence that for the satisfaction of the aesthetic taste of the creatures whom He had blessed with the taste for beauty and the lout and longing for adornment, He created all sorts of these beautiful things in His world.”

For Reference http://www.quranenglish.com/tafheem_quran/055.htm Surah 55. Ar-Rahman :

  •                                                                                          * (55:19) مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ                
  •                                      (55:19) He unleashed the two seas so that they merge together,
  •                                                                                         * (55:20) بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لَا يَبْغِيَانِ
  •              (55:20) and yet there is a barrier between them which they may not overstep. *19
  •                                                  *19 For explanation, see E. N . 68 of Surah AI-Furqan.
  •                                                                                              * (55:21) فَبِأَيِّ آَلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
  •          Which of the wonders of your Lord will you twain – you men and jinn – then deny?
  •                                                                                      * (55:22) يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُمَا اللُّؤْلُؤُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ
  •                                          (55:22) From these seas come forth pearls *20 and coral *21

*20 According to Ibn 'Abbas, Qatadah, Ibn Zaid and Dahhak (may AIIah bless them), marjan implies small pearls, but according to Hadrat 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud, this word is used for corals in Arabia.

*21 Literally: "From both these seas come out..." The objectors say that pearls and corals come out only from salt waters. How is it then that they are stated to come out from both the sweet and salt waters ? The answer is that the seas contain both the sweet and the salt waters; therefore, whether it is said that these things come out from the combination of both, or from both kinds of waters, it would be one and the same thing. And it may well be that further investigations might reveal that both these things originate in the sea at the place where springs of sweet water gush outs from the sea bed; and in their birth and development combination of both kinds of the water plays its part. Near Bahrain which has been famous for its pearl-fisheries for centuries, there exist springs of sweet water at the bottom of the Gulf.

  •                                                                                          (55:23) فَبِأَيِّ آَلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ        
  • (55:23) Which of the wonders of your Lord’s power will you twain – you men and jinn – then deny? *22

*22 Here also though the aspect of power in 'aala' is conspicuous, the aspect of the blessing and praiseworthy qualities also is not hidden. It is a blessings of God that these valuable things come out from the sea, and it is His Providence that for the satisfaction of the aesthetic taste of the creatures whom He had blessed with the taste for beauty and the lout and longing for adornment, He created all sorts of these beautiful things in His world.
