The Details of the Question
Is it permissible to make a movie in which an actor portrays Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is not permissible to make a movie in which an actor portrays Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

It is better to avoid circumstances that would prove disrespectful or harmful to the image of any Prophets or their Companions, which would also include sensitivities to the physical portrayal of any such revered persons.

Prof. Dr. Hayrettin Karaman
