Ask an Alim

is it allowed to work at isreali shop


Asalam alaikum,
I have just applied to work at a coffee shop, Costa coffee, who are now a sister-company of the famous Israeli company, Coca Cola. Ayatollah Sistani says it is prohibited to sell Israeli products but does this fall under the same umbrella or another fatwa?
Jazakallah kheiran

Wa Alaykum al- Salam
Thank you for your question.
I will ask you to refer to this statement of our Marja Ayatullah al-Udhma Sayyid Sistany (may Allah keep him safe.)
4 Question: I know there is a company which is helping Israel monthly. What is the fatwa about working in such a company and purchasing its products?
Answer: There is no permission as to dealing with Israeli products and products of companies which are known to be supporting Israel in an effective way.
