        I guess not, cause I don't know which goods those are.
        Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

            Yes, i've boycotted CocaCola, McDonalds so far.

            Why?
            'Cause the money paid for these products is invested in killing our brothers & sisters in various parts of the world.

                Oh yeah, so when you 'knowingly' buy products that invest in attacks in the muslim countries , do you get gunnah for it? (serious question)

                      Did you know that...
                      Marks and Spencers
                      Again and again M&S has stated that they are 'proud' of their special relationship with Israel and that they are as close to Israel as they have ever been. They boast being the UK's #1 provider of women's lingerie which is sourced from Israeli textile giant Delta Galil. Israeli cloths manufacturer Polgat (Bagir) claims that 1 in 6 men in the UK owns a Bagir suit bought from Marks and Spencer. Similarly on the food side of the business, M&S chooses to disproportionately source from Israel. For example its no coincidence that they were the first to introduce Israeli avocados to the UK. Following from that initial helping hand, today avocado exports net Israel $42 million every year (peaking to $87 million in 1987).


                      Coca Cola
                      Coca Cola Israel (aka Central Bottling Company), with an annual turnover of over $900 million, is among Coca-Cola’s ten largest single-plant bottling facilities worldwide. It provides nearly 5000 jobs in Israel.[5] Coca Cola Israel owns Tara Dairies, Israel's second largest dairy[5], which has dairy farms in the illegal Israeli settlelemts on the West Bank. Tara is a major shareholder of Meshek Zuriel Dairy (approx. 52%), which owns a dairy farm in the settlement of Shadmot Mechola in the occupied Jordan Valley. Additionally, the company holds a third of the shares of Ramat Hagolan Dairies, which is located in the occupied Golan Heights, in the industrial zone of Katzerin where the products of the company are manufactured[6][7].
                      Coca-Cola Israel also supports the Jewish National Fund[35] and sponsers training programs for its workers on subjects including the Israeli-Arab conflict. The course content is created by a company funded by the Jewish Agency and the Israeli government.[52]
                      In July 2002, it was announced that Coca-Cola Israel, in return for $55 million in incentives from the Israeli government, is to build a new plant on stolen Palestinian land at Kiryat Gat employing 700 workers.[53] This development did not go ahead due to grant disputes and a new potential location (Ashkelon).
                      In October 2005, Coca-Cola Israel increased its investment in Israel by buying a 51 percent controlling interest in the Tavor Winery
                      MacDonalds
                      The Jewish United Fund that "works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for Israel" lists McDonalds as its major corporate partner in its last published corporate sponser list (2002). McDonald's has 125 restaurants in Israel which have a policy of sacking its Arab employees if they are caught speaking arabic.

                      Nestle
                      The swiss company owns 50.1% of israeli food maker Osem Investments. In dec 2000, it announced , it will invest millions of dollars to operate the new R&D centre in israel.[1]
                      In 1998, Mr. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe on behalf of Nestle, received the Jubilee Award by the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. This is the highest tribute ever awarded by the "State of Israel" in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy.

                            Long read but beneficial to all, insha Allah

                            Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmathullahi wa Barakaathuhu.

                            Insha Allah the following helps you sister:


                            Praise be to Allaah.
                            Firstly:

                            The basic principle is that it is permissible to interact and do business, buying and selling, with the Jews and others, because it is proven that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions interacted with the Jews of Madeenah, buying and selling, lending and putting items in pledge, and other kinds of interactions that are permissible according to our religion. The Jews with whom the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) interacted were people with whom the Muslims had a treaty; those who broke the treaty were either killed or expelled, or were left alone if that served some interest.

                            But there is evidence which indicates that it is permissible to buy and sell with kuffaar who are in a state of war against the Muslims.

                            Imam al-Bukhaari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

                            Chapter: Buying and selling with the mushrikeen and people who are at war with Islam.

                            Then he narrated (2216) that ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Abi Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: We were with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) then a mushrik man came with some sheep that he was driving. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Are they for sale or a gift?” He said: “For sale.” So he bought a sheep from him.

                            Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Sharh Saheeh Muslim (11/14):

                            The Muslims are unanimously agreed that it is permissible to interact with ahl al-dhimmah (non-Muslims living under Muslim rule) and other kuffaar, so long as the object of the transaction is not haraam, but it is not permissible for a Muslim to sell weapons or tools of war to those who are waging war against the Muslims, or anything that helps them to support their religion.

                            Ibn Battaal said: dealing with the kuffaar is permissible, except for selling things to those who are at war with the Muslims that may help them against the Muslims.

                            It was narrated in al-Majmoo’ (9/432) that there is scholarly consensus that it is forbidden to sell weapons to people who are waging war against Muslims.

                            The reason for that is obvious, which is that these weapons will be used to fight the Muslims.

                            Secondly:

                            There is no doubt that it is prescribed to engage in jihad against the enemies of Allaah, Jews and others, with our lives and our wealth. That includes every means that will weaken their economy and cause them harm. Money is the lifeblood of wars ancient and modern.

                            The Muslims in general should cooperate in righteousness and piety and help the Muslims in all places in ways that will lead them to prevail and strengthen them and enable them to manifest the symbols of religion, to practise the teachings of Islam and to implement the rulings of sharee’ah and carry out hudood punishments, and whatever will lead to their victory over the kuffaar, Jews, Christians and others. They should strive their hardest in jihad against the enemies of Allaah with all the means at their disposal. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Strive against the mushrikeen with your wealth, your lives and your tongues (speech).” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2504; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.

                            The Muslims have to help the mujaahideen as much as they can, and do everything that will strengthen Islam and the Muslims. They must also strive against the kuffaar in whatever ways they can, and do everything they can to weaken the kuffaar and the enemies of Islam. They should not employ them as workers such as typists, accountants, engineers or servants in any kind of service that gives them more power to collect the wealth of the Muslims and use it against them.

                            Conclusion:

                            The one who boycotts the products of the kuffaar who are waging war against Islam, intending thereby to make manifest the fact that he does not like or support them, and to weaken their economy, will be rewarded in sha Allah for this good intention.
                            Whoever deals with them on the basis of the principle that it is permissible to deal with the kuffaar – especially buying things that he needs – there is no sin on him, in sha Allaah, and that does not affect the principle of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ (loyalty and friendship vs. disavowal and enmity) in Islam.

                            The Standing Committee was asked: What is the ruling on Muslims not cooperating with and not wanting to buy from Muslims, and preferring to buy from the kuffaar; is this permissible or forbidden?

                            They replied:

                            The basic principle is that it is permissible for the Muslim to buy whatever he needs of things that Allaah has permitted from both Muslims and kaafirs. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) bought from the Jews, but if a Muslim turns away from dealing with his fellow Muslim for no good reason – such as deceit or high prices or bad products – and he prefer to buys from kaafirs with no reason, that is haraam, because it implies that one is befriending the kuffaar, approving of them and liking them, and because it involves reducing the Muslims’ business and preventing them from selling their goods, if the Muslim takes that as his habit. But if there is a reason for that, such as those mentioned above, then he should advise his Muslim brother to give up these faults. If he accepts the advice, then praise be to Allaah, otherwise he should go to someone else, even if he is a kaafir, if he is honest and decent in his dealings.

                            Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 13/18

                            And Allaah knows best.


                            BarakAllahu feeki.
