Is it that you can not give statues, teddy bears or something to Muslim friends ?
I've never had any friend from there but the one I am visiting is Muslim and I just carried one teddy bear for her but my best friend says we can't give teddy bears or dolls or statue like things to Muslims.
I mean I just can not go and ask her...
Is it true?
Does it imply on those that are from India?

    You can give them Teddy Bears… You just can’t name them Mohammed. They go batshít insane over silly stuff like that and in order to teach YOU a lesson, they’ll blow up a school or maim a Jew on the other side of the world. That’ll show ya!

    No it is not true. Regarding the Teddy Bear thing, a teacher caused an uproar when, due to popular vote from the children in her class, she named the class Teddy Bear Muhammed. The school and authorities did not have a problem with the bear but with naming it after the prophet.

    I’ve got Muslim friends who have bought themselves teddy bears and statues for decoration. In Islam you are not allowed to pray to the statues or teddy bear but you can have them as toys or decoration.

    In all my years of being a Muslim, I have never heard that.
    I’m 99% sure you can give her a teddy bear. I’ve been giving and receiving them all my life!
    There’s nothing wrong with that.
