Nine Commandments of the Qur'an:
Graven images forbidden in the Second of the Ten Biblical Commandments, are not forbidden in the Qur'an.
Inspite of the Second Commandment, Bible followers create masterpieces of fine arts, including sculptures, while the deplorable Islamic clergy going to extremes, deprives Muslims from creating or enjoying beautiful paintings and sculptures, images of living beings, pictures, films, photography, music, and all kinds of fine arts.
Unfortunately then, for centuries, the Muslim art has been reduced to calligraphy and raising buildings with domes and colorful tiles.
6:151 Say, "Come, let me convey to you what your Sustainer has enjoined upon you as a sacred duty:
i. Associate none with Him.
ii. Honor your parents, treat them kindly and fulfill their needs.
iii. Neither kill your children for fear of poverty nor deprive them of proper training and education. We provide for you and for them.
iv. Do not come near immodesty or indecent deeds, whether openly or secretly.
v. Do not slay a life - life that God has made sacred - except in the course of justice.
All this He has commanded you so that you may use your intelligence and reflect on it with wisdom.”
6:152 God commands you further:
vi. Do not approach the wealth of the orphan except to improve it until they come of age with full maturity of body and mind.
vii. Give full weight and full measure in all your dealings. Uphold justice in all aspects of your life. Our commands are meant to widen your human potential. We do not assign any ‘self’ responsibility beyond its means.
viii. And when you voice an opinion, be just, even if it is against a relative.
ix. Fulfill your Covenant with God, the unwavering allegiance to the Divine System. This He commands for you to bear in mind.
6:153 And surely, this is My straight way that leads straight unto Me. Follow it, then, and follow not other ways that divert you from the Divine way. These are the Divine commandments ordained for you, so that you may live upright.
Reflect on this verse:
7:32 .... "Who is there to forbid the beauty and aesthetic niceties that God has brought forth for His servants, and the good things of sustenance?” .....
Mullahs say, "Well, we are here to forbid all that!"
