    God, save us from your followers

    Its an old story. Nike made these shoes long time ago and the sign on them says Air, written so it looks like flames. They probably wanted to say their shoes were smokin.
    Anyway, some conspiracy theorist has seen likeness with the way Arabs write Allah and started screaming his head about it, so Nike had to burn hundreds of thousands shoes, losing millions of dollars.
    Now Nike wants to return this ill-fated model (which in the meantime got a nickname Air Allah) to the stores, but this time they are wiser to use a different font for the sign.

    And the CocaCola sign says "La Muhammad La Makka" when you look at it upside down with a mirror and erase some lines.

    I don't buy CocaCola either because of this vile scandal. I'm also considering not to eat at McDonalds because the beef had Alif Laam there and the Haa was probably just somewhere hidden on purpose. I also doubt passing by the local car tunnel because the pollution made a picture on the wall that looks like Jesus so they started to worship it.

    As much as possible. I'm also hesitant about this nike-logo thing...I mean, I'd imagine there to be many other things we use too that got some indication to kufr in their name or the history of the name? Maybe some of you westerners can talk about this, since I don't know your products.

    all praises are for allah
    regarding the boycout its is no doubt a good action however thse silly theries and stories shld stop remeber avoid suspision

    see also http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/107654/coca cola


    Praise be to Allaah.

    What has been said about Coca Cola, that there is written on it the words La Allaah la Muhammad or La Muhammad la Makkah and that this can be seen by looking at the writing in a mirror, is not true, so there is no shari ruling that follows from that.

    You should keep away from over exaggerations and illusions that have no basis.

    Any food or drink that is proven to be harmful is haraam, but if there is no such proof then the basic ruling is that they are halaal, and they cannot be deemed haraam on the basis of mere conjecture and speculation.

    But if the company that produces it is hostile to Islam and supports its enemies, then it should be boycotted for that reason.

    And Allaah knows best.

    Islam Q&A
    This is the opinion of the author of the above mentioned lines, he is free to do so.
    Most of the scholars issuing fatawa on that site, and Saudi as well, have never been outside Saudi and know very little except for that which has been told them by those close to them(they are very little exposed to other opinions except for when being approached by government to issue a fatwa against those opposing them)

    dont be dumb
    No, and that's why we have the ability to think freely instead of taking a "fixed" opinion from certain websites. After all, many of us live in the west and know a whole lot more than those behind the website you refer to (its a good site for general issues, no doubt about it, but concerning Muslims in the west and surrounding issues, the Saudi scholars are unfortunately miles behind)
