Depictions Of Muhammed

Recommended Posts

This is not to stir up debate or anger. But should pictures of Muhammed 'respectful' pictures of course not ones with him wearing a bomb-turban. But should images of Muhammed be shown, or not?

 

Oral and written descriptions are readily accepted by all traditions of Islam, while Muslims differ as to whether or not visual depictions of Muhammad are permissible[citation needed]: Some Muslims believe that to prevent idolatry and shirk, or ascribing partners to Allah, visual depictions of Muhammad and other prophets of Islam should be prohibited. Other Muslims believe respectful depictions should be allowed [citation needed]. Both sides have produced Islamic art — the aniconists through calligraphy and arabesque, the pictorialists through book illustration and architectural decoration [citation needed]. Negative portrayal of Muhammad, whether spoken, written, drawn, or filmed, may be taken as a great offense by Muslims, see Muslim veneration for Muhammad.

I personally do not know what's wrong with it, but others do, and I will respect that.

Images should never be created in any form (ie: paintings, sculptures etc) of Muhammad (saws) because it can cause future generations to create idols, which Allah (swt) forbids. Nothing should be associated with Allah (swt).

 

By Allah, we were truly, in a manifest error, when we held you

(false gods) as equals with the Lord of the 'Aalameen

(mankind, jinn and all that exists).}

(The Noble Qur'an, Surah 26: Ayat 97-98)

 

The Prophet himself (may Allah bless him and give him peace) said ‘I am nothing but an apportioner; Allah is the one who bestows.’ Related by Bukhari from Mu’awiyah (may Allah be pleased with him)
