Assalamu Alaikum

It depends on what they are posters of. Inanimate objects (trees, plants, etc) are ok, but images of humans are considered haram. There is ikhtilaaf (difference) between scholars on the difference between digitally taken pictures and hand drawn pictures..however either way the end result is a picture lol.

Salams,

Like sister Charsima said, posters of objects are ok, but pics of ppl are not allowed.. I think there is a hadith somewhere where it says..

That Angels dont enter the houses of where there's pictures and dogs. I'll try and find that hadith for you inshallah..

W'salam

Salaam Brother....

I can't help but take notice of this thread... I never really follow something without really reflecting about it.... but if some of the sisters say that it is haramm - then there is definitely a valid reason why.

with regards to posters, images, objects that represent a human being or any living thing... I believe we need to keep ourselves not surrounded by these things... If you reflect about it... subliminal programming uses these mediums in order to put something like an idea inside our minds.

In this case, if we reflect on it... an image of Malcolm X will place an indellible image of this person in our phantasms... or our subconsciouss mind.

The downside of having this in our brain cells is that we are displacing time and space for the remembrance of Allah... since we can only focus our minds to one subject at a time.

What we need to have is a vacant space to filled up with Allahs' Remembrance, the Qur'an and the ways of the prophet in focus in our daily lives... Any other images or concepts that will share this space will definitely take some time and space and will definitely be causes of distractions during our daily lifes routine.

It is merely a reflection on the subject. since it is frequently mentioned by Allah SWT in the Qur'an... that the Clear book is for those Who think, those who Appreciate... and those who Reflect....

May Allah's peace be with you... and your whole family... Ameen.
