“Truly, We did offer AlAmanah to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it. But man bore it. Verily, he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant (of its results).” (Surah Al-Ahzab, 72)
DO NOT FORGET THE HALAL WHILE SHOPPING
Today, our scientific and systematic search for the Halal, which has initiated in 1982, has left 38 years behind. Our devoutness, efforts and struggles to be in the Sirat al-Mustakim (the straight/true path) has led us to reach an important stage in this long and difficult march by the permission and help of Allah (SWT).
It is a sign of a Muslim personality to boycott non-Halal certified products and be very selective in this issue. There are numerous Muslims struggling for their religion and, sometimes, sacrifice their lives when it is necessary. If we cannot even leave a few products while they are leaving their lives, this shows the weakness of our Imaan (faith).
The thoughts like “What can change by my actions? I am only 1 person.” is very wrong. A Muslim should not think in such a way. We should not forget that the boycott will be a great blow to infidels and those who do not respect our beliefs.
A Muslim should know that a lot will happen with “me”. The world will change. The boycott is the way of showing your side. How can I account for this, if I am on the side of infidels and those who do not respect our beliefs?
May Allah lead us to be forceful against the disbelievers and those who do not respect our beliefs, and be merciful among ourselves.
WE SHOULD DO WHAT IS OUR SHARE IN THIS MISSION
Can you imagine how much value it is to be among the first to open a blocked road to a good (Khairful) goal? Think of the dua’s (prayers) of people buying the Halal-certified products by seeing the Halal logo on the products… Imagine that they say “May Allah show His mercy to the ones contributing this cause.”… Cannot we do this for our eternal life?
Let’s put aside our timidity and apathy. Let’s express our demands explicitly to the producers and sellers.
