The Boycott is still on!!!

by | Apr 18, 2021

It has been now six months that the Prophet Muhammad (ppuh) is being insulted in France. As far as I know, the French government did not retract its words or actions, did not apologize, and only renewed its arrogance towards these degrading caricatures of OUR Prophet. Moreover, they are ostracizing French Muslims turning them into second-class citizens.

Criticizing the French government’s actions is not enough! The boycott of French products and companies is essential. It is only by staying united on this front that we can aspire to change something. Political pressure seems implausible because of hypocritic heads of state in the Muslim world that bend to Western and European powers. Therefore, economic pressure is our only outlet. However, as we have mentioned before, the purse is often mightier than the sword.

So remind your brothers and sisters in faith, make it a habit to check the origin of the product as well as the parent company. Do not despair or minimize this action. We already look at the ingredients list to see if the product is permissible for consumption, just give a look at the MADE IN section for good measure.

So if you want to know how to determine if a product is from France or belongs to a French company, here are a few sites with that info.

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

If anyone is a betting man, he knows that most of the time he will lose; it is a question of numbers. Winning every time is improbable and practically impossible. When flipping a coin, you have one chance out of two of getting it right. 50%, not bad; but repeat it four times straight; not too confident, are you?

Let’s transpose that example to the prophet Muhammad; he got every single verifiable (with our limited knowledge to date) phenomenon right. Not only he got them right, but most of them are also explained; not just enunciated or left for interpretation. Let’s say there are about 20 scientific/natural phenomenon (Actually, more have been mentioned and others left out since a multitude of authors have done a better job than me explaining them. Plus, 20 seems like a pretty round number, and we don’t want to sound boastful either) that were elucidated 1400 years ago, by an illiterate Arab that had no aspirations to science whatsoever… When you do the math: ½ at the power 20 is ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½. That gives you the possibility of 1/1 048 576 of getting it right. That is less than one in a million probability; becoming less and less a betting man…Keep in mind, considering that the questioning is in a yes or no format; true or false to a given question (without formulating the solution and adding all the explanation that comes with it in the Quran and Hadith).

The thing is, it is not because the prophet Muhammad was an expert in astronomy, geology, chemistry, nuclear physics, biology, botany, entomology, oceanology, or even historical science that he got it right all the time. It is because the only thing he got right out of all of this is that he wholeheartedly believed in Allah. All these, verses, signs, scientific phenomenon were not explained or tackled by the prophet Muhammad; they were brought forth by Allah, the All-Knowing.

And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.
