6572: Buying products from kaafir countries

What is the ruling of buying and selling American products, such as Hi-Tech ones like IBM, DELL and Microsoft.

Published Date: 2000-02-05

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no reason why one should not buy American products, like any other products which come to the Muslim countries from the kaafir countries, or deal with the kuffaar for trading purposes, so long as this does not involve anything that goes against sharee’ah; so long as there is no similar product available from Muslim countries which would rule out the need for the kaafirs’ products; and so long as buying their products will not give them more strength against the Muslims. And Allaah knows best.
