It is in Hadith - Narrated by Ummul Momineen Aisha (Rdhiallahu ta'ala Anha) - "I used to play with dolls in the presence of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam) and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam) used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam) would call them to join and play with me. (Bukhari).
(2) It is in Hadith - Narrated by Ummul Momineen Aisha (Radhiallahu Ta'ala Anha) "When the Apostle of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam) arrived after the expedition of Tabuk or Khaybar (the narrator is doubtful), the drought raised an end of a curtain which was hung in front of her store-room, revealing some dolls which belonged to her. He asked: What is this? She replied: My dolls. Among them he saw a horse with wings made of rags, and asked: What is this I see among them? She replied: A horse. He asked: What is this that it has on it? She replied: Two wings. He asked: A horse with two wings? She replied: Have you not heard that Solomon had horses with wings? She said: Thereupon the Apostle of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam) laughed so heartily that I could see his molar teeth. (Abu Dawud).
From above Ahadith, we can draw the following conclusions.
(1) Pictures drawn, taken or even making shapes of human beings or animals is allowed in Islam provided they are made for some good purpose; even as play things for children.
(2) Pictures can be drawn in text books / drawing books / black boards, etc., to explain various subjects to students.
(3) Pictures can be drawn / taken for scientific and technological research and education at Colleges, Universities and laboratories.
(4) Human / Animal models can be made for scientific research and education.
(5) Medical fraternity can work on dead bodies of humans and animals for their education and research. They can record their findings by way of pictures.
(6) Pictures can be taken and used for Passports / I-Cards / Driver licenses / social security and a host of other requirements.
(7) Pictures of Islamic scholars / Shuyooks can be drawn / printed in books for identification.
(Cool Islamic scholars / Shuyooks can appear on TVs, Internet and Videophones to explain Islamic issues to people.
(9) Pictures of family members can be drawn / taken with the help of a Camera. Since these pictures are used as a remembrance for the following generations,
Why did Allah created us?

Drawing animate beings such as people and animals is haraam, and is in fact a major sin.
It is not permissible to make images of these animals because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed the image-makers and said: “The most severely punished of the people on the Day of Resurrection will be the image-makers.” This indicates that making images is a major sin, because this curse only applies to major sins, and the warning of severe punishment only applies to major sins. But it is possible to draw part of the body such as a hand or foot, etc, because these parts cannot live independently, and the apparent meaning of the texts is that what is forbidden is that which could live (independently), because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in some ahaadeeth: “He (the image maker) will be told to breathe life into it and he will not be able to do so.”

It is not permissible to draw and make images of animate beings, whether they are engraved, on paper, on cloth or anything else, because of the report narrated by al-Bukhaari (2105) and Muslim (2107) from ‘Aa’ishah the Mother of the Believers (may Allaah be pleased with her), that she bought a cushion on which there were images. When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) saw it, he stood at the door and did not enter. She said: I recognized displeasure in his face. I said: O Messenger of Allaah, I repent to Allaah and His Messenger, what have I done wrong? The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “What is this pillow?” She said: I bought it for you to sit on and recline on. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The makers of these images will be punished and it will be said to them, ‘Bring to life that which you have created.’” Then he said: “The house in which there are images is not entered by the angels.”
And Muslim (2110) narrated that Sa’eed ibn Abi’l-Hasan said: A man came to Ibn ‘Abbaas and said: I am a man who makes these images; advise me about that. He said to him: Come close to me. So he came closer to him. He said: Come closer to me. So he came closer to him, until he put his hand on his head and said: I will tell you what I heard from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Every image maker will be in Hell, and for every image that he made, a soul will be created which will punish him in Hell.” He said: If you must do that, then make (images of) trees and inanimate things.
Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Sharh Saheeh Muslim: Our companions and other scholars said: Making images of animals is emphatically haraam and is a major sin, because this stern warning which is mentioned in the ahaadeeth is issued concerning it. That applies whether he makes it to be used in ways that are not respectful or otherwise. Making it is haraam in all cases, because it is competing with the creation of Allaah. That applies whether the image is in a garment or a carpet or a dirham or a dinar or a penny or a vessel or a wall or anything else. As for making images of trees, camel saddles and other things in which there are no images of animals, that is not haraam. End quote.
It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (1/479): What makes images forbidden is the fact that they are images of animate beings, whether they are sculptures, or drawings on walls or fabric or paper, or they are woven, and whether they are done with a quill, a pen, or a machine, and whether they represent something real or something imaginary, whether they are small or large, beautified or distorted, or drawn in the form of lines representing a skeleton. What makes them forbidden is that fact that they depict animate beings, even if they are imaginary like pictures of ancient people, Pharaohs, or leaders and soldiers of the Crusades, or like the pictures of ‘Eesa (Jesus) and Maryam (Mary) that are kept in churches, etc., because of the general meaning of the texts, and because that is competing with the creation of Allaah, and because it is a means that leads to shirk.
PEACE TV -THE EVIDENCE THAT MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM ) IS A PROPHET OF GOD BY DR. LAURENCE BROWN

What is your position on political cartoons which are not exact representations of people and animals but, rather, exaggerations for the purpose of delivering a message?
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us that the one who makes images – by drawing or engraving –will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and these images whose makers are given this warning are images of animate beings, based on what its says in the hadeeth, that Allaah will say: “Give life to that which you have crated.”
It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Those who make images will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be said to them: ‘Bring to life that which you have created.’” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5607) and Muslim (2108).
It seems that images with incomplete features and those which do not have a nose or eyes are not included in the images that are haraam, and their makers are not included in the warning, because they cannot really be called images and these pictures are not competing with the creation of Allaah.
It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Among the people who will be most severely punished on the Day of Resurrection will be those who imitate the creation of Allaah.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5610) and Muslim (2107).

someone told me
Thank you for that, . As cartoons and caricature are not exact representations nor imitating the creations of Allah then my work is not haraam.
This is comforting to learn and gives my work legitimacy.
With regard to stuffed toys in which the image is not clear, even though there are limbs, heads and shoulders, but they have no eyes or noses, there is nothing wrong with them because this is not competing with the creation of Allaah.
12 New Muslims Share Their Journey to Islam
26-07-2021, 07:15 AM
It is well known in the principles of fiqh on which there is consensus that in cases of necessity, forbidden things are permitted, so the ruling may change from prohibition to permission if that will lead to achieving one of the five necessities that Islam came to protect, which are: religion, life, physical health, honour and wealth.
Because medicine is one of the necessary sciences that people need, to such an extent that some scholars regarded it as a communal obligation, this means that some things are permitted which are basically forbidden, in order to fulfil this communal obligation.
Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Rawdat al-Taalibeen (1/223):
With regard to sciences, some of them are a communal obligation, such as medicine. End quote.
Indeed, Muwaffaq al-Deen al-Baghdaadi narrated in his book al-Tibb min al-Kitaab wa’l-Sunnah (187) that Imam al-Shaafa’i said:
I do not know of any branch of knowledge, after knowledge of halaal and haraam, that is more noble than medicine. End quote.
Even if a doctor does not treat women except in cases of necessity, he must learn how to treat both sexes, because a woman may not be able to find a female doctor in a certain specialty or in a certain city. Also, knowledge of medicine is based on understanding the makeup of the human body, and the features of its various parts, and details of their functions. How well the doctor understands that will determine how well he knows medicine and how successful he is in ridding people of problems and diseases.
Hence there is nothing wrong with the doctor studying drawings that show the human body, whether they are of men or women, and there is nothing wrong – in sha Allaah – with using drawings in exams for students of medicine and life sciences, as that will help them to understand properly and learn this knowledge correctly.
In our religion it is permissible for women to treat men in cases of necessity.
It was narrated that al-Rubayyi’ bint Mu’awwidh (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: We were with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), bringing water, treating the wounded and carrying the slain back to Madeenah. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (2882).
Ibn Hajar said, commenting on this hadeeth in Fath al-Baari (6/52):
This shows that it is permissible for a non-mahram woman to treat a non-mahram man in cases of necessity. End quote.
In our religion there is also evidence which indicates that it is permissible to make pictures and images for children’s toys, because children need to play and learn.
In a Fatwa issued by the scholars of the Standing Committee, there is evidence which indicates that it is permissible to make pictures in cases of necessity, such as pictures to prove the identity of a person and the like.
As for making pictures and drawing parts of the body separately, such as the head or the chest, many scholars are of the view that it is permissible.
All of the above indicates that it is permissible to use drawing and pictures in studying medicine, etc.

Why did the Prophet Muhammad have several wives
The Prophet of Islam (pbuh) facing his detractors
There is not a person in history who has been attacked as much as the Prophet Muhammad was, he was attacked in his life and even after his death, Yet a sincere reading in his life proves that everything his words say. detractors is just a lie,
here are some quotes (from Westerners):
Alphonse de Lamartine: Was this man an impostor? We don't think so after carefully studying its history.
Annie Besant: one of the great Messengers of the Supreme Being.
Georges Bernard Shaw: “I studied - the wonderful man - and in my opinion, he deserves the title of savior of humanity. "
The prophet is therefore the target of anti-Islam attacks, the goal of his detractors is to distort his image to hide the marvelous character of the prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, in what follows you will find the answer to their lies that many do not cease to repeat without knowing that they are insulting the man whom God loves the most:
Why did the Prophet Muhammad have several wives
Now they are trying to say, the prophet married several women so according to them he is a man of desire ... But let's take a closer look at these marriages and find out where this "desire" is:
Before the first marriage:
The prophet remained 25 years without getting married, everyone recognized in him modesty and respect and that he never approached fornication despite the fact that the means were very available in his time, especially for a young man!
Despite all of this the prophet never made a mistake, or is the desire they are talking about?
The first marriage:
When he was 25 the prophet did not go looking for the young virgin who would be more attractive to pleasure seekers, The prophet's first wife was a 40-year-old widow, is this the choice of a young person? 25-year-old who they think would be thirsty for desire? in addition it is known that it is khadija who chose him after having touched in him his veracity and his honesty.
25 years with only one woman!
Prophet Muhammad lived 25 years with his wife Khadija who was 15 years older than him, until she died, and even after her death he still considered her to be his beloved wife, do these detractors find any reason? fierce desire in all of this?
Other women (after their fifties):
the other marriages of the prophet were only either to strengthen a friendship or to help a poor widow Some examples:
• Saudah Bint Zam’a was a very old widow. The prophet married her when she was 50 years old and provided for her.
• Aisha was the daughter of his dearest friend Abu Bakr, this helped to strengthen their friendship, which was customary.
• Oum-Salma bint Abi Umayyah was a widow and had 4 small children. The prophet married her and took care of her and her children. She was 29 years old.
These are just a few examples of the prophet's charitable character. As you can see, marrying 40 and 50-year-old women doesn't really correspond to the behavior of a man who is bitter with desire.
Former prophets and kings of the Bible
They had more than one wife
Why did the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) marry many wives. ...

The calendar year of Islam begins not with the birthday of our prophet (peace be on him), not from the time that the revelation came to him (Bethat) nor from the time of his ascension to heaven, but with the migration (Hijra) from an undesirable environment into a desirable place to fulfill Allah's command. It was migration from a plot that was set by the leaders of the Quraysh who were plotting to kill prophet Muhammad, and to destroy the truth that today is being conveyed to mankind everywhere against tyranny and injustice. Their purpose was to destroy the foundation of the Islamic state, the Sunnah of the tradition of the prophet, and to prevent the revelation being delivered by Allah's messenger to mankind.
The Islamic calendar is reckoned from the time of migration (Hijra) of Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) from Mecca to Madina. The Prophet's decision to migrate from Mecca came after several years of inhuman treatment of the faithful by the powerful tribes who were united despite all their feuds to stop the spread of Islam.
Prophet Mohammad's decision to leave Mecca coincided with the infidel's plan to assassinate him. In 622 AD, the Quresh tribesmen held a meeting and decided that a band of young men, one from each tribe, should assassinate Prophet Mohammad collectively so that their responsibility for the murder could not be placed on any particular tribe.
On the eventful night, the Prophet asked his cousin Ali Ben Abutalib to take his place in bed to make the Meccans think that he was asleep. The Prophet himself slipped out unobserved alongwith his loyal follower Abu Bakr (who was chosen as the first C aliph after the death of the prophet). They secretly made their way to a cave named Thawr, not far from Mecca and lay in hiding there for a day or two until Abu Bakr's son reported that the search for him had been given up. Then the two set out from Madina on camel back. They reached Quba, on the edge of the Madina oasis, on 12th Rabiul Awwal. With Mohammad's arrival in Quba a new phase of his career and glory of Islam started.
This migration has a special significance in the history of Islam. It ended the Meccan period of humiliation and torture and began the era of success. His own people to whom he preached Islam for 13 years neglected the Prophet of Islam. But he was cordially received in Madina as an honored chief.
In Madina his power enhanced day by day. Here he was not only the religious leader but took the role of a politician and statesman too. Prophet Mohammad expired ten years after his migration to Madina but only in one decade he changed the course of human history.
In view of this special significance of the Prophet's migration the consultative body advised the Second Islamic Caliph, Omar ben Khattab, to start the Islamic year from the date of migration of the Prophet from Mecca to Madina.
According to early Moslem scholars, Abu Musa Al Shari drew attention of Omar to an improperly dated debenture or IOU which was payable in the month of Shaban but it was not clear which Shaban was actually meant, the present one or the coming one. Omar called the dignitaries for consultation who made several suggestions to begin the Islamic calendar.
Ali (who later became the fourth caliph) suggested the Hijra as the beginning of the Islamic year with Moharram as its first month. Consequently, Caliph Omar in 21 A.H. or 641 A.D introduced the Islamic calendar in its present form.
The guidance about the Islamic calendar is taken from the following verses from the Holy Quran: (In the name of GOD most gracious and most merciful)
"Lo the number of the months with God is twelve months." IX:36.
"They ask thee, of new moons. Say: They are fixed seasons for mankind and for the pilgrimage." II:189.
"He it is who appointed the sun a splendor and the moon a light, and measured for her stages, that ye might know the number of the years, and the reckoning." X:5
The Islamic Calendar of 12 Lunar Months is determined by observation of the new moon with no effort by intercalation (addition) or other means to synchronize the Lunar year with the Solar year.

The Quran has been memorized
Because God saved the Quran from changing
The predicate is connected
And the writers of the Quran are known generation after generation
If one refers to the teachings of the Quran, he descended directly on Muhammad through the intermediary of the Angel Gabriel (Jibril in Arabic), who received him from Almighty God (Allah) and who then recited to Muhammad, fragment by fragment, verse by verse, thus revealing small and large parts over a period of 23 years.
The assembly and order of verses that we know today have never been altered by Muhammad. It was Jibril, the Angel of Allah, who gave the instructions on how to order the verses with each revelation of the Quran.
"If Muhammad could not read or write, then his friends had to write the Quran (like the Bible), right? "
NO ! Again, they didn't have to write it down to keep it, even though they did. They all memorized it completely after hearing it.
Some of them wrote it on animal skins, others on large stones or palm leaves, because the Prophet Muhammad had asked them to do so.
So, they wrote down what they heard and this is the written form of the Quran. They all memorized the Quran for themselves and transmitted it the same way they received it.
The “word of mouth” method of memorizing is still in effect among Muslims today.
"Could they have misinterpreted or is it possible that they modified, added or deleted verses from the Quran? "
No, Allah tells us in the Koran itself: "If you doubt it, bring a similar book". So we see that, yes, it is a book. But this is no ordinary book, written by humans, and that's what we need to remember here.
Now is your opportunity to verify your statements, just as the Quran itself authenticates its statements:
The strongest evidence that the Quran is not (and will not be) distorted is that Allaah The Exalted challenged His creation to produce the likes of it; then He challenged them to produce ten chapters only and finally challenged them to produce even a single chapter. Today, this challenge remains open. If the Quran is fabricated, why can they not even produce a single chapter and defeat their enemy?
So far, no one has been able to produce anything close to the Qur'an in its beauty, style, meaning and prophecies. Scientific evidence makes the Qur'an the most talked about book in today's intellectual world.
1,500-year-old Quran manuscript may be oldest known copy
Recently radiocarbon dated copy of the 7th century Quran at the University of Birmingham.
A 1,500-year-old parchment may be one of the oldest known copies of the Quran, possibly dating to a time that straddled the life of the Prophet Muhammad, according to researchers who recently dated the fragments of the manuscript.
The text was radiocarbon dated, which measured the age of organic materials from the find. Researchers at the University of Birmingham, UK, found that the sheets of parchment dated back to AD 568 and AD 645.
Susan Worrall, director of special collections at the University of Birmingham, said in a statement.
"Radiocarbon dating has delivered an exciting result, which contributes significantly to our understanding of the earliest written copies of the Quran",
The Prophet Muhammad is said to have lived between AD 570 and 632 and, according to Muslim tradition, he received the revelations that make up the Quran between AD 610 and 632.

"The above observation makes the hypothesis advanced by those who see Muhammad as the author of the Qur'an untenable. How could a man, from being illiterate, become the most important author, in terms of literary merits, in the whole of Arabic literature? How could he then pronounce truths of a scientific nature that no other human being could possibly have developed at that time, and all this without once making the slightest error in his pronouncement on the subject?"
