There is a story about drowing babies in a river floating by a man, and he goes into the river trying to save one baby at a time and another man tries to go upstream to prevent the man who is throwing the babies in the stream in the first place. That is where WESTERN MUSLIMS ARE! At the port where the sickness originates and exported to the rest of the world.
Muslims on the west are on the frontlines. All the forces that are reaching out to the muslim world to cause disruption amongst muslims are reaching out from where we walk and play. If you are going to get mad at Muslims, in the muslim world for being influenced by the west, or being subjugated or for capitulating to the west, then we are only indicting ourselves in allowing the foreign invasion of ideas to occur in the first place.
Think about the consumer spending power of muslims in western nations, which is worth around 200B dollars. Back in 2010, they thought that the American Muslim population was going to reach 6.2M by 2030. Its 2023 now, and we are already 7M الله أ أكبر. That’s the same size of the hispanic market back in the 1980s, and we are growing at an even faster pace than they did.
CORPORATIONS CARE ABOUT THE MUSLIM MARKET IN THE WEST. THATS POWER.
We can get the attention of the owners and controllers of global financialized capital. We can negotiate with them, and use the leverage of the growing leverage of our consumer power in the united states and generally in the west. There is no better potential for that anywhere in the world better than America, and generally in the west.
And if we could connect and coordinate with the agenda of the Muslim world, it would be even more powerful. We ought to start businesses with the intent of pushing foward the orthodox muslim agenda with the consumer dollar we have in our hand. Companies are the real political entities in the west. Political parties in the west are just front orginizations for the business sector and the business sector is trying to win you over.
YOU MATTER TO THEM. SO SHOW THEM WHAT MATTERS TO YOU!
Don’t be like some other minority in the west who just gets happy when big business notices them (be it in movies or fashion). Approach them AS MUSLIMS. Approach them as a muslim would. Appraoch them like the Ahlul hali wal-aqd they are and USE THEIR INTEREST IN YOU TO INFLUENCE THEM.
Earning Muslim Consumer Dollars IS GOING TO TAKE MORE than superficial gestures to our community. There is only about 50 companies that have stayed on the fortune 500 list since 70 years ago, when it was first published in 1955; and most of those are consumer companies. They survived because they could read market trends and they responded well to those market trends and KNOW there is no market that they are looking at more, than they are looking at than muslims. We are going to be 30% of the global population by 2050 and if our consumer behaviour can be coordinated even loosely as a mechanism for influence, we’ll be able to bend the power of the private sector to our will inshallah.
All of this is to say NOTHING, but to BUILD PRIVATE SECTOR POWER. YOUR OWN PRIVATE SECTOR POWER. MUSLIM PRIVATE SECTOR POWER. And developing connections to the muslim world through those activities, trade, investment, etc. If you are active in the ecnomic sphere, then you are automatically going to be more effective than if you are focused on being solely active in the political sphere or attempting to influence them through means of activism, protests, letters etc.
Decisions made by the boards of directors of corporations are more impactful than the decisions made in the House of Representatives. The decisions made in the house of congress are dictated by those at the boards of corporations anyways. You could send five hundred thousand letters to your congressman and they wont count as much as one telephone call from a CEO.

And muslims in the west are in the best position to persue these kinds of things and you don’t have to ally with anybody, just with each other, and muslims abroad and western countries. We are not a minority and don’t need to bend to the needs and whims of satan that surrounds us, and on the same note, we don’t need to change our neck label to remove its reference to muslims. Who exactly is being offended and why do we need to cater to them?
