Islamic Iman Bans Cuddly Toys For Teenage Girls

An Islamic preacher has barred teenage girls from sharing their beds with cuddly toys urging parents to purge them from their rooms.

Malaysian Iman Ustaz Azhar Idrus claims teenage girls are too old to sleep with teddy bears and that parents should consider them ‘haram’, or forbidden under Islamic law.

He told local media: “Nowadays, many young girls sleep with dolls, which is forbidden.

“These toys are meant only for children to play with.

“Why do our daughters, aged 18 to 20, sleep with teddy bears or dolls?

“They put bears or Adu Du on their heads because they see it being done by celebrities.

“Fathers, check your daughters’ rooms. If there are such toys, it is considered forbidden.”

Adu Du is a Malaysian movie character from the animated series BoBoiBoy.

Iman Idrus bizarrely added that soft toys could mean that Islam’s angels of mercy, or malaikah, would never visit a home.

He went on to bafflingly claim that toys hanging from the rearview mirror of a car are also banned.

He said: “Another thing is hanging toys in cars, like hanging two monkeys in front of a spider or a cow. All of this is not allowed.

“What is allowed is placing them on the seat so that children can play without disturbing us while driving,”

However, social media users disagreed with his remarks.

One is quoted in local media saying: “So scared to go to hell, end up making current life hell.”
