Xmas surprise for toddler: F-16 electric toy plane plays Muslim prayer
“I think we’re kind of confused on how this would happen,” boy’s uncle tells Washington news outlet.
An F-16 electric toy jet given to a three-year-old boy in Washington State for Christmas did not emit the expected airplane sounds, but something completely unexpected: the sounds of a Muslim prayer in Arabic.
“It sounds like an Arabic chanting, which is pretty unusual,” Bjorn Thorpe, the boy’s uncle, who gave the toy to his nephew for Christmas, told King5, the NBC Western Washington affiliate.
“I think we’re kind of confused on how this would happen,” he told.
“He just wants a plane,” Thorpe said, adding that he expects Amazon to refund their purchase.

“This is the prayer you are supposed to say when you are performing Haj,” Nadeem Israr, president of the Islamic Society of Whatcom County told King5, referring to the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.
Customer reviews on Amazon expressed both fear and humor at the unexpected praying from the toy plane.
