Infertile Muslim Woman Gave Birth to Son After Prayer to St. Nicholas

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 22, 2011

A Muslim woman in Russian Republic of Bashkiria, who was unsuccessfully treated for infertility for 14 years, gave birth to a son after praying before the icon of St. Nicholas in an Orthodox church.

“I’m a Muslim, but for some reason I believed that it (the icon – IF) will help me,” the happy mother is quoted as saying by Ufa edition of the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily.

Her friends advised her to go to the church: her marriage has almost failed and the diagnosis sounded as a death verdict to family happiness – it is impossible to give birth with such decease.

It was the first time the woman came to the church, she was a little bit scared and did not how to pray. Parishioners told her “sincerely, from the heart” ask St. Nicholas.

Then she invented a simple prayer: “Nicholas the Wonderworker help me, give us a son, please…” Finally, the woman took off her favorite golden chain and left it near the icon – there is a belief that such gifts make a prayer more effective.

She understood that she is pregnant a month after. Her son Tamerlan makes his parents happy: he is so cheerful and clever.

I wonder why this news isn’t available anymore on “Sky News” ?

Anyways, this is how they continue speculating, blaming by obviously hiding something in Lebanon:

  • The investigation’s duration have been met with silence from Lebanese authorities.

  • They said everything would end within a maximum of six months, but up to now, the investigations were not finalized.

  • Because we haven’t got anything from the Lebanese authorities, talks [on crash causes] will go one of two ways: First, [it could be due to] systemic failure from Ethiopian Airlines in terms of training, safety and piloting

  • Second, pilot error maybe played a part but there were other issues in relation to the aircraft.

  • We cannot take it any further until the report is published and we see the findings of the investigation.

  • It is also entirely foreseeable that following the accident report, if it is found that [Ethiopian Airlines] and/or Boeing is responsible, that criminal proceedings will be commenced in Lebanon against Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing.

  • Ethiopian Airlines doesn’t want to be on a blacklist and the Lebanese government wants to prove that it regulates its airspace.
