Paintings, despite its long history, are often excluded from Islamic aesthetics. It might be due to the facts that they developed more in non-Arab cultures such as Persian, Turkish and Indo-Pakistani. Another reason is the assumption that drawing living things is prohibited in the Qur’an. The texts which contain the controversy surrounding figurative paintings generally originated from the 11th and 12th centuries AD. When the fiqh scholars were very dominant in replacing the role of the group mu'tazilah, the texts written before that did not question the problem of drawing figures. Maulana Rumi once said, that a painter is a mirror of heart that is able to receive messages or reflections from the outside world. Rumi likens paintings with the reflections of mirror. In this way Rumi defended painters from accusations that they draw living things; painters do not draw living things but present images based on what they see in their imagination. Therefore, the image in the painting is lifeless. These ideas and thoughts gave birth to the concept of art is not an imitation of nature.
