”prophetbrahmarishi” uploaded a post: Can We Draw the Image of God?
And I am going to response to that on my blog because I want everyone to know especially those who have never gone to his blog or seen that post.
First thing first, the answer: NO!!!
Allah (God) is One. Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) is his last Prophet and Holy Quran is the last Book that is given to Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H). So, I am not going to say in reference to any other religion just Islam. I know there are other religions too but after Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) everyone has to be converted into a Muslim. Now explanation of the question:
Drawing pictures of which Allah created is Forbidden. How can one paint Allah, when He says that “There is nothing like unto Me”. We know only His attributes. Allah is different than anything He has created. Whatever we can think is created by Allah, and therefore, is not like Allah. So how to draw and what to draw? Allah is spirit and we know almost nothing about the spirits. That is why Allah warns us in the Quran not even to try. Allah cannot be drawn because:
- There is no concept of figured God in Islam.
- Allah is the Creator. In Islamic believes, none of the creations is like the Creator, nothing can compare Him. He is beyond human imaginations and there is nothing like Him.
