Boycotting Products Manufactured by Non-Muslims¹
(Shaykh Muhammad Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen)
There is a drink called “Cola” that is supposedly produced by a Jewish
company. What is the ruling of consuming this drink or of selling it? Is this considered cooperating in something that is sin and transgression?
You have never heard that the prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) used to buy food from
a Jewish man to feed his family?! He died while his shield was pawned to this Jewishman.2 You have never heard that the messenger ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) used to accept gifts the Jews?!3
If we are going to go so far as to say this, then let us not overlook
something even more obvious: we use automobiles that are manufactured by Jewish companies. There are other beneficial products made only by them…4
