Boycotting Israel

For the longest time there has existed a campaign in the Muslim world to boycott the companies and labels that have supported the state of Israel. Has it been successful and is it even worthwhile?

I used to be against this for the longest time. My logic and the logic of countless others was that what impact will this make? This is the logic of our times–there must be immediate impacts and if there are not, then it isn’t worthwhile. But this is unrealistic–the truth is that great feats take great amounts of work.

If one looks at things from the true perspective–the perspective that we should everything for the sake of Allah–than things become a little more clearer. If you do this just to have an impact than all you are left with is hope and your own cynicism. But if you do this for the sake of Allah–than you will do it with sincerity. And if every Muslim did this with that intention this would be a success.

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdik ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk. Ameen.
