(Fatwa: 748/566/L=1431)

 

This is sahih hadith, but it has not been translated correctly. The complete hadith goes like this:

Hadhrat Ayisha (رضي الله تعالى عنها) narrated that Um Salama (رضى الله تعالى عنها) told Allah’s Apostle about a church which she had seen in Ethiopia and which was called Mariya. She told him about the pictures which she had seen in it. Allah’s Apostle said, “If any righteous pious man died amongst them, they would build a place of worship at his grave and make these pictures in it; they are the worst creatures in the sight of Allah.”

عن عائشة أن ام سلمة ذكرت لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كنيسة رأتها بارض الحبشه يقال لها ماريه فذكرت له مارأت فيها من الصور فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أولئك قوم إذا مات فيهم العبد الصالح أو الرجل الصالح بنَوا على قبره مسجداً وصوروا فيه تلك الصور أولئك شرارالخلق عندا لله (بخارى شريف:1/62 ، باب الصلاة فى البيعة).
