According to the highest authority (Wikipedia), there are very few people, even Muslims who should find this offensive. Muhammed, the Muslim prophet, is sharing a cookie with Jesus, the Christian Savior.

Sunnis are the largest group of Muslims to be concerned with portrayals of the prophet Muhammed, mainly because they fear that it would cause idolatry, the worship of an image over the idea behind it. That is completely rational, and I respect that. But it is not a written in Qu'ran, and bans against it are only ever found in supplemental texts, and resemble the Jewish traditional ban on "graven images".

Persian and Ottoman Muslims over the centuries have created many beautiful works of art depicting Muhammed in a historical light. The Supreme Court Building in Washington DC depicts Muhammed along with Hammurabi and Moses as a Judge and Rule-maker. Devotional and historical films have been made about Muhammed. And in my opinion, yeah, the Dutch cartoons of Muhammed were kind of insensitive, and in my opinion, kind of not funny either. Maybe that's what passes for humor in the Netherlands.

So to anyone who threatens me with violence over a heavily stylized depiction of Muhammed with a cookie: Fuck you.

Hah I had a idea to draw Mohammed chilling with a bunch of depictions of god through history, at a table with items/food that represents them
From your experience will I get nuked or somethn

asking because I'm a little worried, I live in Texas and the area I live at has a muslim population, and I HAVE had people try to track me for other reasons IRL from the internet so I'm a bit worried I'm going to offend the wrong people, even if my portrayal isn't meant to be offensive and is more for historical sake.

Why are they so concerned about causing idolatry?
To me it sounds like a religion which is a ripoff of many others, not making much sense on its own, and thus being more uppity about that kind of minute little things.

Its not nice you tried to reveal their faces.
Phostex's avatar
I think it is, and I succeeded in revealing their faces, minus the parts under their hair and beards.

It's a nice idea!
Let Muslims and Christians live together!
Greetings to Christian brothers!
For offensive comments, please stop telling jokes about our religion as long as we don't make fun about yours...
I beg you to stop that...

But you, sir. who drew the deviation, shocked some Muslims who believe that drawing Mohammed (PBUH) is offensive, but forbidden in our religion... But I appreciate your idea, sir :)

Mohamed was born around 400 years after Jesus died, so probably not.
