South African National Halaal Authority (SANHA)
May 2013 : Rajab 1434

There always seems to be a never ending string of fairs locally and internationally at any given point in time aimed at different segments of the market showcasing the latest trends and products.  And why shouldn’t this be the case as knowledge and trade are the lifeblood in the development of nations. Countries are no longer individual islands but are traders of the global village in a borderless cyber world.

The Noble Quran and example of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged trade and Halaal earnings. Chapter 4, Verse 29 of the Noble Quran reads:

"… let there be amongst you traffic and trade by mutual goodwill."

Commerce plays an important role in the Islamic economic system. The goal which Islam strives for in commerce is exchange of goods and services within society based on brotherhood and justice. Islam has set certain regulations and principles towards this goal which control the activities of merchants. As the teacher of mankind there are numerous references recorded by the Prophet (peace be upon him) that are congruent with fair trade principles which in today’s times are more relevant than ever before.

The World Muslim population is approaching 1.6 billion people and is expected to increase to 30 percent of the world’s population by 2025. The total spending on food alone would amount to $584 billion a year if every Muslim spends just $1 a day on Halaal food. And what about the myriad of other services they require in all sectors with specific Islamic ethos such as tourism, banking, clothing, pharmaceuticals, beauty products and so on.

SANHA in its more than a decade and a half of service constantly promotes the availability and accessibility of Halaal foods and services. It encourages its certified plants and subscribers to utilise these windows of opportunities as exhibitors and visitors, to seek out new technologies, latest trends, purchase or sell products and establish partnerships. Wherever possible it facilitates participation at fairs and exhibitions through information exchange and facilitating B2B networking.
