Why can't we see any pictures of prophet Mohamed and his companions though we see pictures of Jesus and his mother?
Christians drew pictures of Jesus (Peace be upon him) and his mother from their imagination. They are unreal pictures because modern machines that can take typical pictures were not invented yet, so this was from their imagination. Because Muslims didn't see any pictures of the prophet (May the blessing and peace of God be upon him) or his companions, they refrained from drawing the detailed description said by the companions of the prophet as an imaginary picture lest they offend him or change some of his features unwillingly. Their great respect to the prophet and his companions, keeping to reality and refusing illusion and imagination made them not only abstain from drawing but they prohibited drawing from illusion or imagination any pictures of the prophet or his noble companions.
