The egg was bought from a farmer on Monday by a group of Muslims holding religious classes at Maccasar, about 40 miles from Cape Town.
One of the men, Faizel Eksteen, 45, said the wording was a sign that God exists. "If I see an atheist now, I will show him proof," said Eksteen.
The egg has been handed over to a mosque in Cape Town's Woodstock suburb and will be displayed there, Eksteen said, adding that he hoped that it could then go on a tour of the Cape Town area.
