Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah

Narrated Said bin Abu Al-Hasan (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

While I was with Ibn ‘Abbas a man came and said, “O father of ‘Abbas! My sustenance is from my manual profession and I make these pictures.” Ibn Abbas said, “I will tell you only what I heard from Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam). I heard him saying, ‘Whoever makes a picture will be punished by Allah till he puts life in it, and he will never be able to put life in it.’ ” Hearing this, that man heaved a sigh and his face turned pale. Ibn ‘Abbas said to him, “What a pity! If you insist on making pictures I advise you to make pictures of trees and any other unanimated objects.”
