Is it haram to draw realistically such as human faces. And will angles not enter a home when reading ayat al kursi if you have a portrait on the wall or is it forbidden to pray while one is hanging on the wall. Also one might say its haram because you are mimicking allahs abilities, is it permissible to draw his own creations would that be okay?

In Shi'a fiqh, drawing is allowed but making sculptures or statues of living entities (humans, animals) is forbidden.

Do you mean statues of human beings? I know there used to be statues of Saddam in Iraq, to be honest I don't think he was too concerned about it's religious legitimacy.

There’s a gallery with sculptures of our Ulama, full body.
