Graven, engraving and carving are all related words.

Literally, the Second Commandment forbids any shapely engraving. 'Graven Images' is understood to be making sculptures of any kind which is strongly forbidden in the Bible (Book of Exodus). Think how much talent of the caliber of the master sculptor Michelangelo, the world would have missed only if they followed the Second Commandment!

The introduction of 'Israeliaat' (Hebrew traditions) by "Muslim scholars" into the massive Hadith literature converted Islam from DEEN to MAZHAB. The tragedy happened in the third, fourth and fifth centuries after the exalted Prophet. You know that DEEN is the Divinely Prescribed System of Life enshrined in the Qur'an while MAZHAB is a set of conjured up dogmas and rituals.

The "Imams" of History, Hadith and Tafseer plagiarized so extensively from the Biblical traditions that, since then, Muslims have been better followers of the Bible than Christians.

The only reason that saved Muslims from a sudden decline & fall was the very slow copying of the Imamist books (by hand) and very slow means of communication. So, they started marching toward doom in the 17th century.

Please see an essay on plagiarizing by Imams in the post below. MUSLIMS FOLLOW THE BIBLE BETTER THAN CHRISTIANS.
