New 'Islamic doll' launched in Britain has no facial features


A new ‘Islamic doll’ with no facial features has been launched in Britain.
The ‘Deeni Doll’ has no eyes, nose or mouth whatsoever in a bid to comply with Islamic rules governing the depiction of faces. 

he doll was manufactured in China and designed in the UK by Ridhwana B. She told us: “I came up with the idea from scratch after speaking to some parents who were a little concerned about dolls with facial features. 
 
“Some parents won’t leave the doll with their children at night because you are not allowed to have any eyes in the room.
“There is an Islamic ruling which forbids the depiction of facial features of any kind and that includes pictures, sculptures and, in this case, dolls.
“I spoke to a religious scholar in Leicester who guided me through what was and what was not permissible when producing the product.
“The Deeni Doll has no face on it whatsoever and is Shariah compliant.” 

The doll itself retails at £25 and, whilst it may not be the first of its kind in the world, it is thought to be the only one produced to such a high quality. 

Ridhwana, a former teacher at a Lancashire Muslim school said: “The whole process took over four years from start to finish. 

“The Islamic range in kids toys is quite limited at the moment with few choices. Although this project took a while, I am looking at researching other ideas in the future. 

“I am looking at compiling a book for the Islamic upbringing of children in the future too.” 


   


She said some people might well find it strange but she has had a positive response from many parents. 

“We have produced a limited amount at the moment but already I have had parents take up the order.” 


It presently only comes in one design as a female ‘Romeisa’ named after the female companion of the noble Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
