Islam and Depiction

This is a genuine question in that I do not know the answer and would like to find out.

I understand that the Islamic prohibition on images of the prophet is part of a wider prohibition on the depiction of creatures with "soul". It was thus a stimulus to the development of abstract, decorative art (for example, in the magnificent Alhambra).

But does this prohibition apply to photography and, if not, why not? Are strict Muslims permitting to appear in photographs, on TV, and so on?

I have a suggestion for you but I am sure it would offend some TLF rule.

Re: Islam and Depiction

It will depend on the individuals degree of "devoutness" the vast majority of Muslims dont seem to have a problem, radicals do, hence so many audio taped anouncements from radical groups. A story this weeks concerned the editing out of females from photos by some radical Judaic groups, nowt as queer as folk!.

Re: Islam and Depiction

It is beyond my comprehension how anyone can get so enraged by a depiction of someone dead for 1400 years ( if indeed he did live ).
For starters how do they know what he looked like?
It is like a Christian not wanting to see a depiction of Jesus, again how would they what he looked like, and again did he indeed live?

Re: Islam and Depiction

Twas Not, ever thus! It was part of a topic covered on 'This Week' last night.

"To many Muslims, any image of the prophet Muhammad is sacrilegious, but the ban has not always been absolute and there is a small but rich tradition of devotional Islamic art going back more than seven centuries that does depict Godís messenger.

It began with exquisite miniatures from the 13th century, scholars say. Commissioned from Muslim artists by the rich and powerful of their day, they show almost every episode of Muhammadís life as recounted in the Qurían and other texts, from birth to death and ascension into heaven.

Intended as private aids to devotion and prayer, these detailed scenes were made for both Sunni and Shia worshippers, and surviving examples can be found in dozens of major museum and library collections."

Re: Islam and Depiction

What can you say, peoples faith is unfathomable to me at times, you can look at a cat but not a picture of a cat!.
At Holy communion you actually eat the body of Christ and drink his blood [transubstantiation]
If that was a Muslim tradition we would be howling Cannibalism.
Happy is he/she that call him/herself atheist.

Re: Islam and Depiction

I goggled this because I've received 'communion' in a number of different churches & wanted to be sure it was all the same thing! There are many denominations of Christianity that celebrate 'transubstantiation' of Holy Communion, Eucharist, the 'rite' is known by many names.

"The Eucharist /ˈjuːkərɪst/ (also called Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, and other names) is a rite considered by most Christian churches to be a sacrament. According to some New Testament books, it was instituted by Jesus Christ during his Last Supper. Giving his disciples bread and wine during the Passover meal, Jesus commanded his followers to "do this in memory of me," while referring to the bread as "my body" and the wine as "my blood."

Is there not a post missing here... I'm sure here was a response to the OP that seems to have disappeared.
