I know we are supposed to boycott companies that support Zionism. Can you please give me an example of the Prophet (S) or Imams (A) using the boycott technique to serve Islam?
Boycott of goods and products of companies that support Zionism goes back to the issue of the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which is one of the most important pillars of Islam. By boycotting these companies you are taking a stance in line with this pillar. In Islamic jurisprudence, it is called the principle of: Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.
All prophets and Imams demonstrated this principle in their lives. Here is a reference from the Holy Quran:
و تعاونوا علي البر والتقوي و لاتعاونوا علي الاثم و العدوان
Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. (Holy Quran: 5:2)
