Dear Brother / Sister,
It is permissible to buy and use the products of non-Muslims. Therefore, there is no drawback to using any products that are not forbidden by Islam produced by non-Muslims.
If it is certain that a weapon or a product will be used against Muslims, it is not permissible to work in its production or to buy and sell it. According to the following rule, such a person is held responsible. "A person who causes something is like the one who does it." Therefore, if a person buys and sells a product that is definitely known to be used against Muslims, he will be held responsible. It is necessary for Muslims to be careful about it.
