I don't think I ever said mohammad is perfect, only god is perfect.

And I believe any christian who is religious wouldn't be happy if you draw a stick man and said it was jesus.

And as I said before, drawing an image of any prophet isn't right, because no one is like them, and drawing an image if them would mean that this character got the same personality as them.

To be honest I could fail giving you the exact reason why this isn't allowed, just because I never really searched through this matter, I'm sure someone else would be able to make this a bit clearer.

No...I don't think Christians WOULD get upset. Heck, I'm Catholic and I wouldn't get upset if someone drew a stick figure and said it was Jesus.

Here, I'll even do it myself...Link Look everyone! Its Jesus!

Im christian and personally, unless you drew Jesus doing something demeaning I wouldnt care how you drew him, stick figure or classy oil painting, doesnt bother me.

One thing I dont understand is that on the episode they never did show Muhammad, they showed things that he was inside. They never said that the teddy bear was him but the man inside it was. They never claimed the u-haul was him but the person you couldnt see was. I dont understand how that qualifies as drawing him.

Drawing a prophet is wrong. Drawing a COMIC about a prophet is VERY wrong!

It's wrong because prophets are "holy" to us Muslims, and since nobody knows what did they look like, then they shouldn't be drawn, especially when it comes to comics. Religion is something that isn't supposed to make fun out of it.

well then I guess I havta stop making fun of scientology. And while we're at it no one can say anything negative about any religion, so no questioning any belief or anything of any religion. Itll be just like the dark ages.

As Rami and the Jesus argument, South Park have been making fun of Jesus since season 1.

At what ZS said about not enforcing anything, does the death threats the south park creators have received since showing Muhammad not count at an attempt on enforcing?

As with other topics of this nature, I am making one post and one post ONLY. I will not reply to answers to this post.

Family Guy as well and I still <3 that show despite not appreciating their making fun of Jesus.

As for my opinion, I'm a Christian and I have no problem with people drawing Jesus, I have no objections to that. I do have problems with people who poke pointless fun at ANY religious figure. Religious beliefs are one of a person's most highest defended "opinions" (for lack of a better word), so why can't people just let other people believe what they want? Why must people attack a person's religion when it doesn't hurt nor concern them? If the Muslims don't want Muhammad to be drawn or objectified, then don't. If a Christian chooses to wear a cross around their neck, let them. Why tease them? Does the thing burn holes in your eyes just looking at it? Come on, Dante's Inferno is a game.

I could be wrong , but I think I've read that all kinds of photography and imagery is forbidden in Islam , because of the simple fact that , before the invention of cameras, people could mess up and alter any paintings they want and even make paintings and convince them to be authentic. Although , I think that watching videos is still acceptable within Islamic Context to some extent , because watching the news is watching some happening live somewhere in the world , It's not being altered.

Drawing our prophet Mohammad "PBUH" is wrong to us Muslims, why? because it's been said in our holy book that lying to Mohammad "PBUH" is wrong, and drawing him in any way won't be the exact same as him and therefore it's like lying to the prophet and that's wrong to us Muslims.

All I want to say that we don't do it and we say it's wrong because our holy book said so, what you should do is show some respect to our religion and don't draw him as a stick man, I'm not asking you to become Muslim I'm just talking about respecting what others believe in.
