EVERYBODY DRAW MUHAMMAD DAY

I know it's awful, but that's not the point.  The point is that it's a generic depiction of Muhammad and I'm participating in today because I think it's important.  Let us not be cowed.

1 I didn't even get that creative -- I Snapshot'd the Mohammed from the Supreme Court building

2 Gasp! We are shocked, shocked by such insensitive idolatry! As Allah, Most High said:

"And who is more unjust than those who try to create the likeness of My creation? Let them create an atom, or let them create a wheat grain, or let them create a barley grain."

- Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 648

Even if the Prophet (pbuh) were never depicted again, one depiction of any object is too many. Homer Simpson, Stan Marsh, and Peter Griffin must go!

3 Did anyone notice the translation of that hadith included the word "atom"? I wonder what the original word meant.

Wikipedia has a gallery of Muslim visual depictions of Muhammad.

It's fitting that kevin refers to cartoon characters as "objects" since he believes in a dehumanizing ideology.

4 damn, I all expected a stick figure with typical garb! No matter, I see you're point and I like it. Good work, Sarah
