A little deeper into the background of this topic, where exactly in Islam is the drawing of Mohammed prohibitted? Which book and verse, and what was the context around it?
There's nothing in the Koran forbidding depictions of Mohammed. The idea is to prevent idol-worship such as in Christianity. A very interesting article about it here:
