Hadith - Bukhari 3:428, Narrated Said bin Abu Al-Hasan

While I was with Ibn 'Abbas a man came and said, "O father of 'Abbas! My sustenance is from my manual profession and I make these pictures." Ibn 'Abbas said, "I will tell you only what I heard from Allah's Apostle peace and blessings be upon him . I heard him saying, 'Whoever makes a picture will be punished by Allah till he puts life in it, and he will never be able to put life in it.' " Hearing this, that man heaved a sigh and his face turned pale. Ibn 'Abbas said to him, "What a pity! If you insist on making pictures I advise you to make pictures of trees and any other unanimated objects."

Hadith -Bukhari 4:47, Narrated 'Aisha

I stuffed for the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him a pillow decorated with pictures (of animals) which looked like a Namruqa (i.e. a small cushion). He came and stood among the people with excitement apparent on his face. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! What is wrong?" He said, "What is this pillow?" I said, "I have prepared this pillow for you, so that you may recline on it." He said, "Don't you know that angels do not enter a house wherein there are pictures; and whoever makes a picture will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and will be asked to give life to (what he has created)?"

man, i was told so many lies as a child. the christians have the angels as fearsless, especially my name sake. looks like the are really scaredy cats. first a puppy under the bed and now pictures.

the superstisions run deep. strange the egytians haven't erased all the draws left by the infidels. or brought down the statues? but there is still time. sadie what do you think of the taliban having blown up the 5000 year-old buddhas?

I have a sword. I kill a guy with that same sword. Is the sword at fault or am I at fault? The answer I think is clear.
