Is it Okay to Draw Cartoons of Jesus ʿalayhi salām?

Shaykh Mūsá Richardson

In the past few years, cartoons depicting the Prophet Muḥammad, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace, surfaced in the media. The response of many Muslims across the world was of anger and outrage. Meanwhile, for hundreds of years, the disbelievers from the People of the Book and other than them fabricated images in the guise of our other beloved Prophets: ʿĪsā (Jesus), Mūsá (Moses) and others. What should our response and reaction be to these crimes? Is there a difference between the Messengers of Allāh in this regard? In this Kitāb al-Tawḥīd class, our brother, Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson, brings this issue to light. Since this issue was such a well-known point of discussion among the Muslims, listen to this benefit and share the knowledge with others; may Allāh reward you. For a detailed study, be sure to check out Enlightenment for the Mind in Explanation of: The Difference Between a Prophet and a Messenger by Shaykh Abū Naṣr Muḥammad ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Imām.
