I am not Ulama. Of course I cannot answer a question in the thread title. I just want to say, I am living in Indonesia, a country where Ulama have made an "ijtihad", drawing picture of life being is allowed in certain necessities. However, drawing or even publishing picture of Rasulallah (saw), pictures of prophets, pictures of sahaba is strictly prohibited. In my place if someone published picture of Rasulallah (saw), this someone will go to jail.
