On Wednesday French magazine Charlie Hebdo plans to publish a comic-book style biography of the Prophet Muhammad, complete with illustrations. In Islam it is forbidden to portray any image of the Prophet. Muslim authors and historians contributed to the special issue, which editor Stephane Charbonnier deems historically “halal”. For many, the publication reignites previous concerns over the magazine’s controversial cartoons.
