Unite against the Evils and Avoid using their Products - by Muhammad Ashfaq

Cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad published in several European newspapers have caused outrage among some Muslims. The BBC News website looks at the key questions behind the row.

The 12 cartoons published on 30 September 2005 by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten show the Muslim Prophet Muhammad in a variety of humorous or satirical situations.

The (shit) pictures accompanied an editorial criticising self-censorship after Danish writer Kare Bluitgen (Gustaakh) complained that he was unable to find an illustrator for his children's book about the Prophet.

We Muslims must have to unite against the forces of Evil and being a lover of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W). The first step towards this is to stop using the products of these Evil countries who are involved in this act. I have collected a list of products as follows :

German Products

German Fashion

BOSS – this German brand is a byword for out-and-out success. Headquartered in the Swabian town of Metzingen, the company is a world leader on the fashion stage. The Munich-based fashion designer Willi Bogner is also a firm favourite on the international catwalks. The Bogner label stands for the unique combination of sport and fashion and has everything from stylish skiwear to exquisite evening dresses – the perfect outfit for every occasion. Timeless elegance is the hallmark of Jil Sander. This brand, which started out in a Hamburg studio, is now a major success in Berlin, London and New York. Other German fashion labels also enjoy international success. JOOP! with its versatile creativity is a glittering example, while Daniel Hechter and René Lezard also thrill millions of customers with their gorgeous fabrics and elegant cuts. Strenesse is another shining star on the fashion scene. The brand has a startling simplicity and exemplifies what it is that makes all successful German brands stand out: quality and design.

Shoes

Jewellery

Creating genuine works of art has been the aim of four generations of the Wellendorff family, and the world-famous “Wellendorff rope necklace” is testimony to its success. The quest for perfection pursued by the Pforzheim-based goldsmith’s workshop produces necklaces with an unparalleled softness and flattering fit around the neck. Attention to detail is also the hallmark of the Wempe by KIM collection by Wempe of Hamburg, the internationally known, family-owned business.


Watches

Watches are born of passion and making perfect watches has been the maxim of the traditional Saxony-based watchmakers A. Lange & Söhne for more than 100 years. No wonder that the company’s timeless precision pieces are regarded as among the best in the world. Another traditional German brand – Glashütte Original – also prides itself on perfection. Collectors of clocks and watches from all over the world adore these works of art. Frankfurt am Main is the home of another important maker: Sinn – with its extraordinary range of quality specialist timepieces.


Eyeglasses and accessories

If you have an eye for quality, Rodenstock spectacles are an excellent choice. The name stands for glasses with perfectly customised lenses and frames. Two other German brands, Goldpfeil and Bree, manufacturers of high-fashion, upmarket leather goods, are also worth taking a closer look at. Another multi-award winner is the king of German writing instruments, the fountain pen from Hamburg that goes by the French name of Mont Blanc. The writing implement manufacturer Faber Castell sets great store by design – a successful strategy, as millions of sales will attest.


German Cosmetics

“As white as snow” was the skin creme developed in 1911 by Oskar Troplowitz, so he named it “Nivea” after the Latin word for snow. In the 1970s, the brand took off around the world. The blue pot is now synonymous with perfect skincare for millions of people.

1763 was the year that the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin was established. Even today, every single item is marked with the royal blue sceptre. When a plate is painted, it is also given a special colour mark and the initials of the individual painter are added. This is what makes them so desirable to connoisseurs of classic porcelain from Berlin.

Creativity and inventiveness are the defining characteristics of Villeroy & Boch, a company based in Mettlach on the river Saar, which has enjoyed 250 years of success.

German Toys

Another example of the success of German brands is Steiff. Margarete Steiff made the first teddy bear by hand more than 100 years ago. Over the past century, the bear with his trademark button in the ear has become a favourite of millions of children and collectors. Almost exactly as old as the teddy bear are the dolls of Käthe Kruse. In what may be the oldest German doll-making factory, the dolls are still finished by hand. Another company established in 1873 in Mannheim is Schildkröt. Today, children from every continent play with these German dolls. Märklin also has a very wide fan base. The Märklin name is a byword for quality model railways and a sure-fire way of making children’s eyes light up.
