Question:

I'm a non-Muslim and wonder: Why are
Muslims not allowed to make picture of
the Prophet Mohammad?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I
testify that there is none
worthy of worship except
Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and
Messenger.

It is known that a photograph of
the Prophet does not exist
so that his picture may be
published based on it, or for
someone to claim that a certain
image is his picture. This is
nothing but a lie and a
blasphemy; even if the purpose
of publishing the picture is to
glorify and honour him. So how
could the person who published
his picture claim that it was the
Prophet's while he has not
seen him.

If the purpose of publishing the
picture is to mock and ridicule
him then this is disbelief, as
he was Allah's Messenger and
the best and the last Prophet,
so how can one mock him and
ridicule him? Such an act
[mocking and ridiculing] cannot
be accepted even if it is
regarding a noble or great
personality in this world, so
how can this be accepted for
one of Allah's Prophets, may
Allah exalt their mention, in
whom hundreds of millions of
people around the world believe
as Allah's Messenger?

On this occasion, we invite you
to embrace Islam, as it is the
true and last religion. By being
a Muslim, a person achieves
success in this world by
believing and performing acts of
good deeds, and success in the
Hereafter by enjoying the
eternal pleasure in Paradise
whose width is as large as the
heavens and the Earth; and
saves himself from the misery
of this world and the darkness
of disbelief and disobedience,
and from the misery of the
Hereafter by being eternally
punished and tortured in
Hellfire.

Allah Knows best.
