As Salaam Akaikum,

As far as I know, depiction of human or animals is prohibited in Islamic arts.

Dear ZamanH

How about television, video, film, etc these are also human depiction, the different is the rate, in the moving pictures you see 15 to 30 images per second or even more depend on the quality/smootheness of the movement.  Do you watch tv/video/film?

Salam/Peace,
Semar

But no one claims tehm to be a product of Islamic arts. I watch TV, video but, I don't think that is comparable to  adorning walls though pictures of human beings or animals. Though, I consider taking photograph for documentation purposes to be Islamic (but, not otherwise).

Bismillah,

If people won't display art in human form, or even family pictures on the wall, what is the difference in leaving a television with human form displayed, especially to watch a movie?  To be strict in this belief of not displaying the human form, one would have to only read books and magazines, and maybe just watch news and documentaries on TV.

Isn't the whole point so that we don't worship these images and also to not be swelled up in pride saying look what I created with paintings and scultptures?
