image for Panic as image of pre-Islamic Arabian goddess Al-Lat manifests in London shisha cafe smoke ring
Is it a Ramadan omen locals asked

London - (Second Coming): Customers at the Alley Barber Hookah Bar & Cafe in Tooting High Street were gobsmacked today.

The goddess's image appeared suddenly and unexpectedly in a plume of exotic tobacco smoke just ahead of closing for the Ramadan month of fasting.

Several customers gasped with shock as the pre-Islamic deity hovered over the sweetmeats counter in a grim ancient prophecies reminder of a comeback.

Cafe proprietor Mrs Leela Shukran stifled a scream as the supernatural emanation briefly inspected her baklava display before moving onto some mouthwatering kunafi.

Suddenly a spontaneous flame shot out of one of Mrs S's famous Znood Es-setts - filo pastry cigars with syrupy filligs - also torching her date, pistachio and walnut filled Ma'amoul cookies.

"This is a portent!" cafe regular Zeinab Makdous cried as bewildered shisha smokers huddled behind the portable aircon.

Hookah aficionado Habibti Shawarma is 69 tomorrow.
