SABA Islamic Media was established almost 20 years ago in 1989 as a sole proprietor dealing with distribution of Islamic literature, audio and video products as well as multimedia resources.
Phases of growth eventually led into the incorporation of SABA Islamic Media Sdn Bhd and expansion through addition of new branches.
With its founder named Sabariah Abdullah, you can guess how the company’s name SABA comes about. Sabariah, who hails from Terengganu, is also presently the Managing Director of the corporation. She has a background in Mathematics, and obtained her Degree in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Kansas, United States.
Contrary to popular perception, the products sold by SABA Islamic Media is not only focused exclusively towards the Muslims, but also those non-Muslims who are interested to know more about the religion. Interestingly enough, Sabariah created SABA after finding herself helping a number of friends to find Islamic resources and from there, her interest blossomed.
Today, SABA operates 4 outlets with its main office located in Taman Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur, while the other 3 outlets can be found in Maju Junction Mall, Kuantan Centre Point and PKNS Complex, Shah Alam.
The company’s products are available in various languages including English, Bahasa Malaysia, French, Spanish and Turkish.
SABA is also active in organizing charity events and took initiative to invite international artistes such as Yusof Islam (formerly Cat Steven) and other speakers and singers. Due to its reputation, the name SABA will often come first when Islamic resources are mentioned.
SABA has obtained notable achievements in its business operation such as the successful partnership with with Petronas MESRA where the palm oil station’s customers would be able to buy a selection of at MESRA outlets. Their latest accomplishment was the setting up of their franchise business programs that will allow budding entrepreneurs who have high interest with their business and products can join the bandwagon and be part of a robust partnership.
In 2007, SABA Islamic Media was chosen as one of the finalists for the Malaysia Franchise Association (MFA) Award, alongside a host of popular franchises including Avon, Daily Fresh, Secret Recipe and Smart Reader Worldwide.
