SOUQ Muamalah Madinah - Inaugural

The 1st ever National SOUQ MUAMALAH MADINAH took place in front of Rumah Aman, Shah Alam yesterday I.e. Saturday, 4th February 2011 from 10am - 6pm.

Basic Terminologies in a Souq:
SOUQ. = Market or, Bazaar
MUHTAHSIB = Enforcer or, Regulator
QAFILAH = Traders
WAKALAH. = Agent / Representative

The organisers of the Souq intended to re-introduce the way how the Souq were organised during Prophet's Muhammad SAW time in Madinah.

The Souq had more than 30 Qafilah and the Qafilah were not only local Klang Valley traders but came from as far away as Teluk Intan, Raub and even Perlis amongst other places. Apart from Malaysians, the Souq had visitors from Singapore, Indonesia, Phillippines and even Spain.

One of the more interesting products available in the Souq were non-crystalised honey from Russia which is good for people suffering from heart complications or, diabetes. A student studying medicine in Russia brought the honey and it was sold out by noon. Hence, it is not surprising then that camera crews from 2 TV stations were there to record the event. One crew were from the ISLAMiC FiNANCE programme , a new Business TV channel which just went on air on 1st December 2011 called "THE CAPITAL" available at Channel 127, Hypp TV-UNIFI whilst the other were shooting for the lifestyle "NONA Programme" aired on TV3.

It is expected that the next Souq MM will take place in Bangi, Selangor either in March or April.
