Worshipping the dead is the comrade of adoring images

[2243] 93 – (969) It was narrated that abū al-Hayāj al-Asadī said:

‘Alī bin abī Tālib said to me:

“Shall I not send you on the same mission as the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم  sent me (saying):

‘That you do not leave any statue without destroying it, nor any raised grave without leveling it,…[2244] nor any image without erasing it.'”
