pictures" might reduce idolatry, but
the reason given is not that, but
that Allah will torment all who have
made pictures. Observation: It is

horrible sin in Islam and that Allah
will punish those people on the
Day of Judgment. There is no
command for Muslims to go out
now and punish those painters
