A video of a parrot reciting verses from the Holy Quran went viral on social media across the Arab world on Thursday.
According to Sky News Arabia, the bird who's been dubbed "miracle parrot," was trained by Jordanian Hussain Al Sawalme, a technician at a dental lab and bona fide bird lover.
In a statement to Reuters, Sawalme explained he took the parrot in six years ago and has been training him since.
"It took a long time to train him, we started with a few words at first, then full sentences and eventually decided to teach him to recite verses from the Holy Quran," Sawalma said.
When asked how the bird is able to fluently recite sentences, the bird lover said:
"The Casco (Grey Parrot) bird is one of the smartest in the world and has an incredible ability to imitate sounds and voices, it's truly miraculous," he added.
People react on social media
