The Hadith (Inspired Sayings) of Muhammed
Pictures and Images
Doctrine forbidding pictures in Muslim homes -- Sahih Buhari-- Volume 4, Book 54, Number 447:
Narrated 'Aisha: I stuffed for the Prophet a pillow decorated with pictures (of animals) which looked like a Namruqa (i.e. a small cushion). He came and stood among the people with excitement apparent on his face.
I said, "O Allah's Apostle!
What is wrong?" He said,
"What is this pillow?" I said,
"I have prepared this pillow for you, so that you may recline on it." He said,
"Don't you know that angels do not enter a house wherein there are pictures; and whoever makes a picture will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and will be asked to give life to (what he has created)?"
Narrated Abu Talha: I heard Allah's Apostle saying; "Angels (of Mercy) do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or a picture of a living creature (a human being or an animal)."
More on pictures -- Volume 4, Book 54, Number 450:
Narrated Salim's father: Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, "We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog."
