When a Bellingham child opened a Christmas gift, something was "very, very wrong" with the sound the F-16 made, KING-TV reported.

An unexpected noise came out of a child’s present this Christmas: an Islamic prayer.

Instead of whooshing and roaring expected out of a toy F-16 fighter jet bought on Amazon, the toy plays a prayer in Arabic, KING-TV reported.


The toy’s manufacturer, WolVol, blamed its factory for the mistake, according to the report.

Nadeem Israr, president of the Islamic Society of Whatcom County, told King 5 the sound is a Muslim prayer spoken during pilgrimages to Mecca.

I remember reading about this last year. Absolutely definitely something isn't right about this
