    Saudi Arabia's Pokemon Fatwa!



    Saudi Arabia's Pokemon Fatwa

    Saudi Arabia's Higher Committee for Scientific Research and Islamic Law recently issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, banning Pokemon games and cards, saying they have "possessed the minds" of children, promote Zionism and involve gambling.

    It said the video game and cards have symbols that include "the Star of
    David, which everyone knows is connected to international Zionism and is
    Israel's national emblem, as well as being the first symbol of the
    Freemasons."

    Whilst there may be some good in the fatwa it seems yet again that Fatwas are only reserved for these types of minor issues.

    If one is really worried about Zionism then surely the best Fatwa to issue is to say, "Peace with Israel is Haram and it constitutes an act of a Munaafiq". They could then sit back and observe how the usually silent "scholars" in Al Azhar and Jordan become vocal, as Egypt and Jordan both have full diplomatic links with Israel.

    If Saudi is really worried about the influence upon the children, then they need look no further than the penetration of Western culture in the Arab society. Only recently a Gay club in Dubai was closed down after the authorities discovered certain leaflets. However such diabolical corruption must exist for the events to be taking place in the first instance. Such acts are ridiculous not only for Muslims and non-Muslims alike but even animals!

    But there were no Fatwas or arrests taking place. Every year so many of our children are sent to these countries to acquire "Education" without us examining what type of values are being acquired as a result. No wonder Gay clubs are attempting to be established in the heart of the Islamic world. Carefully devised policies (in accordance with Quran and Sunnah) rather than gesture type Fatwas in these arenas would be far more useful to protect the minds of our children and societies.

    Saudi and their fatwa's, this clearly shows that the saudi govt and their so called scholars, know little or nothing about islam.While the muslim ummah is being tortured and starved to death,the saudis are issuing pity fatwas of pokeman, which is not that dangerous to the muslims. They need to issue fatwas aganist the zionist and the west who resonisble for their creation instead of worrying about kids cartoons.

                People (like me and you) who are in western world talking and showing their anger.. but when it comes to reality they would never go back to face the challenges..

                instead of facing the problem, escape from that place. Thats what We do!!!

                    Salaam,

                    Brother it depends what you talk about remember a nation with lots of wealth what is that nation if it has no direction in life, it is like a person without direction like the kafir's no matter how much money they have they will never be tranquil.

                    So the best possible wealth for any country is the intellectual wealth without which a nation cannot move in any direction and remains directionless so just look at our ummah over 56 Muslim countries yet unable to liberate Palestine or Kashmir and that’s what I call directionless, so talking can do a lot it depends what you are talking about.

                    Especially if it is the sunnah of the prophet (saw) for the first 13 years in makkah Muhammad (saw) did just that and look what happened there is no evidence to indicate that Muhammad (saw) used force of any kind, only when the state was established did Muhammad (saw) go to fight badr after receiving revelation from Allah (swt), so lets keep in mind that it is this talking that has rocked the kings off their thrones and forced ex pm’s like benazir bhuto to write articles on khilafat and forced the governments to address this issue until it becomes a discussion point to which the ummah realises that khilafat is the only way prescribed by Islam, we shall not stop this da’wa.. ahhmeeen….

                    Ws salaam

                      Yes well said Muhammed K, the method to replace these rulers with the islamic system and rulers should be the same method that the Prophet Muhammed(saw) used.

                          I have to agree with Info man on this.

                          Issuing a fatwa against something that is just a fad and will eventually die out and be forgotten is unneccesary. I can't help but think that it is a diversionary tactic...from all the domestic problems the Saudi's are having. Tsk tsk tsk...

                            Salaam,

                            A nation without correct Islamic thought and practically applying that thought is like a body without a soul.

                              Its not just replacing the leaders it replacing the system as well because you have to understand that it is the system that produces such individuals.

                              The issue of just talking. Its quite sad that many Muslims belittle intellectual struggle to just talking. Would you say that to the Prophet (saw) and his Sahabas(ra) who spent 13 years in Makkah speaking out against the munkar in the society to change the thoughts and emotions of the people in favour of Islam?
