  • Question About Certain Hadiths About Drawing

    Posted by Alex on June 10, 2024 at 6:53 am

    I’ve already read one of the posts here saying that drawing actually isn’t forbidden, that many of the hadiths has wording like “these images”, implying it was very specifically a certain type of image at the time when idolatry was common. But what about these ahadith?

    Sahih Muslim 2107 f, Sahih Muslim 2107 i, Sahih al-Bukhari 5954, Sunan an-Nasa’i 5357, Sahih al-Bukhari 5953

    In all of these ahadith, none of them have the wording “these images”. They all feel like the prohibit all drawings when they say “someone that tries to imitate God’s creation”. That God find it offensive when you draw something because you are trying to be like him by creating something.

    The principle is, that nothing is prohibited until it contains something unethical, immoral, or polytheistic. Mere drawings cannot offend God.

    In Ahadith, the polytheistic pictures were referred to only as ‘The pictures’, because at that time only deities’ pictures were made.
