Baby Pals is a simulation-style video game for the Nintendo DS that released in North America and in the PAL region in late 2007 and early 2008. The objective of the game is to take care of a virtual baby through certain tasks as feeding, bathing, and teaching. Players can choose between a male baby or a female baby.
According to news reports, a mother who purchased the game for her child reported that the babies in the game say something that sounds like "Islam is the light" under certain circumstances. The babies in the game generally do not have any spoken dialog. However, according to a representative from the game's publisher, Crave Entertainment, the sound bite came from "a recording of a 5 month old baby babbling non-intelligible phrases." He pointed out that "the baby recorded was too young to pronounce these words let alone a whole grammatically correct phrase."
