Salaam, 

In regards to pictures of the 12 Imams I have some questions. (An example of these types of pictures is below) 

1) Is there any evidence for suggesting that these pictures are an actual representation of the Imams? 

2) How did these pictures come into existence? (Meaning who made them) 

3) If these pictures are not based on evidence, why do we not have historical pictures/paintings anyway? Imam Ali (A.S) was alive at around 700AD. At this time it was possible for paintings to be made. Some of the Imams were around much later than Imam Ali (A.S), when things were even more developed.

Based on my knowledge, most of these images were made by Persians/Iranians. If you actually look closely, you'll notice that in the pictures they don't even look Arab. All the imams were mainly Arab, with some Persian blood; but not a lot. That's why in the pictures they look very white, with Persian features and less Arab features.

Salam these type of pictures become popular nearly 2 decade that origin of them was from Turkey in historic  painting of Ahlulbayt (as) which draws by Iranians face of Imams (as) were rarely shown but in recent decades by help of printing systems the pictures with face spreads everywhere.

Please add my question. Does are Marja allowed such pictures to be made?

Sayed Sistani (ha)
 

Question: Is it permissible to draw or produce a scene which shows the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.), one of the past prophets or the infallible Imams (a.s.), or other luminaries and show it in cinema, on television or theatre?

Answer: If due deference and respect is observed, and the scene does not contain anything that would detract from their holy pictures in the minds [of the viewers], there is no problem.
