    why do muslims hate others who draw a picture of mohammed?

    i realise they aren't suppose to but why care if someone outside of their religion does?

    Because they love their Prophet a lot and hate it when someone ridicules Him.

    They hate to see their loved prophet insulted same as they hate to see any of Allah's prophet's "Abraham, Moses, Jesus, ect" made fun of...

    let me ask this a different way. if a picture is drawn of mohammed without trying to make him look bad, why the hatred. the reason i'm re-asking is the answers so far are based on the assumption that the person drawing it meant harm. secondly if mohammed is so great then why does he want you to hate people just for a picture.

    Islam frowns upon idols.

    There is nothing in the Qu'ran that says you can't draw a picture of Muhammad but it's tradition that people can't be drawn or painted... though it did occur in the early years of Islam.  In later Islam it was banned and remains so to this day.

    There are many Islamic traditions that have no basis in the Qu'ran such as the Hajj or even the requirement to pray 5 times a day.  It's just tradition.

    Kind of like orthodox Jews wearing black or men wearing a hat.  There is nothing in the Bible saying one has to do that, it's just tradition that developed at some point in time.

    I believe it is because Islamic law forbids making copies of anything created by God, that is why Arabesque art was created.  However, there seems to be a bit of hypocrisy, television, passport photos...  Perhaps I haven't got it quite right?

    The Danish cartoon created a lot of hate and was given a fatwa or religious edict to vanish the man who did it, and your question is too risky to answer. Intolerance anyone?

    What is a belief but an idea in our mind.  What is our mind?  Where is it?  How did it come about?  Our mind isn't us.  Neither are the contents: our thoughts.  or our our visualizations.  They temporarily belong to us.   But we can hardly say we own them.    Sometimes we don't want to own the thoughts that arise within us.  At other times we do.   

    To be 'owned' by a certain entanglement, a conglommerate of thought-patterns is a belief.   A belief can become so entrenched and our consciousness so entangled within it, that it becomes an obsession.    Real Self knowledge is, it seems to me, the only way out of all of this.  But how many are willing to take responsibility for their own disentanglement? 

    It really seems crazy to me that people get so uptight that they would hurt another who has a different idea in their mind than their own.    And as for waging a holy war because another doesn't share our belief, that's sheer insanity.
