Respect to Baba Ali and all those responsible for the professional video, professional design and professional website set up. Muslims are stepping up and imitators need to step up their quality. Let’s get some halal competition amongst the Muslim businesses and entreprenuers.

The European delay of LittleBigPlanet we mentioned earlier has blossomed into a worldwide recall of the game due to passages from the Islamic holy text Qur’an being included in the background music in one of the levels.
“During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur’an,” admitted the company in a statement.
“We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologise for any offence that this may have caused.”
Yesterday a reader sent us a link to a music file containing the two offending phrases, which can be found here. Hit the jump for the translation of the offending phrases.
2- Almost immediately after, in the 27th second: “ÙƒÙ„ Ù…Ù† Ø¹Ù„ÙŠÙ‡Ø§ ÙØ§Ù†” (“kollo man alaiha fan”, literally: ‘All that is on earth will perish’).
Thanks to NSider for providing the link and translation.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more on how this recall effects release dates.
It seems it was an Arabic song that was added to the soundtrack for the game. I am really surprised and appreciative that Sony went out of their way (they will lose a lot of money) to remove this song from the game.Â We should buy products from Sony in support for their kindness of removing the song from this game.Â In fact, I thinkÂ I will buy this game.Â Although as a Muslim, I believe that it didn’t really matter if the song was added to the game or not.Â I wouldn’t be offended at all if the game had that song in it.
Second to Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter has been one of the most popular 2-player fighting games in the 80s-90s. It’s a classic game that only people between the ages of 20 and 35 had the privilege of playing during their childhood years.
Capcom plan on releasing Street Fighter IV in 2009 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Classic characters like Ryu, Blanca, and others will return as well as new characters.
This was a last minute video done for my Film History and Theory class. It was extra credit (Which I needed!). All the footage was recorded in a total time of about 3 hours. Editing the video took about another 4 hours. God willing, the professor will like it!
For all those Warcraft fans out there, you’ll like this!
There are so many different Muslim forums across the Internet. Many of them have different themes or goals. Many of them focus on a specific theological background or a specific interpretation of Islam. Others are extremely open for all types of Muslims. Many of them are the center of heated debates amongst Muslims and cause people to get headaches and tears. Many of these forums are being watched due to some of its members posting and discussing controversial subjects. Some of them even go as far as to share vivid images and videos of graphic and mature content.
The worldwide online Muslim community is about to experience something totally different. An all exclusive online forum dedicated to only one topic: Sports.
The only Muslim forum dedicated to discussing sports.
No madhab fighting. No salafi-sufi debates. No “Is Music Halal?” threads. No shia or sunni online wars. No bashing scholars.
I love video games, especially computer games. I also like games that require lots of thinking like StarCraft, WarCraft I,II, & II, Medieval II: Total War, Civilizaion 2, 3, & 4, etc. You get the point. I use to love playing Sim City as well, but I haven’t played it in years. Until now. Coming November 2007, a Sim City unlike no other. A Sim City where you control the society as well as the city. Meaning you choose the governmnet, the beliefs of the people, there freedoms, etc.
