But historically images of Muhammed have been strongly
generally, he has not been depicted. Examples from Christianity and

and Jesus are common. That they bear little or no relationship to the
historical figures is generally not an issue. A phony image of the
Prophet of Islam is.
As has been pointed out, he's notable for more than being a prophet.
That's like requiring depictions of L. Ron Hubbard to be from the
Scientologist point of view only.
