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.
