Quote from "The Beetle" (1861)
Meanwhile the Beetle had been traveling on, and had sailed across the ditch on a cabbage leaf. That morning two persons came by, and when they saw the Beetle they picked him up, turned him over and over, and both looked very learned – especially one of them, a boy.
"Allah sees the black beetle in the black stone and in the black mountain," he said. "Isn't that in the Koran?"
