image for A Virtual Muslim World?
Get the kids one for Christmas!

Have you ever wondered what it's like being a Muslim? Well here's your chance...

A new game, based loosely on other virtual worlds such as The Sims, has just been launched in time for Christmas. Its aim is help non-Muslims understand the world of Islam and its culture and also to allow players to create their own empire using the avatars available.

Its' creator Mohamed El Jazeera, from Bradford, told In Seine News;

"The idea came to me when I was praying to Allah in the local Mosque and I am certain that he asked me to tell the people to believe in him. I was to be the messenger and I decided to employ 21st century techniques so that I could reach the Western world."

People will be able to dress their avatars in traditional clothing and furnish their rooms in various tasteful styles without any input from Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen or Carol Smilie. It will explain our discipline of praying towards Mecca five times a day and also demonstrate the significance of why women wear Burkahs or Hajibs.

Already the game has been slammed by other religious groups who quote El Jazeera as saying "This is nowhere near the vision of where it will be someday" as meaning that Muslims plan to dominate the Western World.

However, El Jazeera countered; "They're obviously jealous and wished they had come up with the idea first! The media have long portrayed Muslims as extremist troublemakers and I simply want to put the story right. Islam is a peaceful religion and it's just a pity other Religious leaders don't listen to their god the same as we do. I would even go so far as to say that some wouldn't know what prayer was!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
