Achievers - Innovator
Noor Mohammed
Founder – Halaltradezone.com

His quest for Halal products and services, for a Halal lifestyle led him to study the opportunities of establishing a portal for making Halal living easy and he is the first from India to come up with a comprehensive B2B and B2C portal which empowers entrepreneurs and businesses locally and globally to connect with each other and to sell Halal certified products to consumers on a single platform in a very easy way and it also provides useful updates and information on Halal stuffs in various verticals.

Meet Noor Mohammed, Bangalore based 25 years old Innovator, who is passionate to make HalalTradeZone.com the most referred platform in the world regarding Halal.

Gives us a brief profile of yours?

I was born and brought up in Bangalore, I am 25 years old and I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with specialization in International Business. Currently I am the Founder & CEO of HalalTradeZone.com and Partner & Director at Zunairah Commerce LLP.

How did HalalTradeZone.com come into existence, what is the purpose behind it?

Back in 2009 I was thinking about starting a venture which would be unique and which would serve a purpose in the society.

We all are aware about the importance Islam has enjoined on us in terms of Halal be it eating, wearing or earning. Thus Halal forms the base of a sound lifestyle, and it is for the betterment of this life and the everlasting life to come.

Noor Mohammed
So I contemplated and researched about the venture in which this need of the Muslim Ummah could be fulfilled. Alhamdulillah, in the blessed month of Ramadhan I got this idea to create a portal for Businesses and Consumers keeping Halal aspect in mind. Thus HalalTradeZone.com came into existence in September 2009. Through our portal businesses can connect with each other and reach out to Muslim consumers locally and globally.

The 3 main purposes behind HalalTradeZone.com are:

1. To empower and connect genuine Entrepreneurs and verified Halal (Legal) Businesses with each other locally and globally.

2. To educate business community about Islamic morals & business ethics and the importance of Halal earnings.

3. To make Halal certified products and services easily available to consumers by making it possible to small, medium and large retailers to sell Halal certified products on a single platform in their respective countries.

Have you faced any challenges or failures in your life, if yes how did you overcome them?

As human beings we all face challenges and failures in life. Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall. Even I have faced few challenges and failures in my life and I am highly thankful to Allah (swt) for everything as it made me who I am today.

I would like to share the challenges I faced while working on HalalTradeZone.com. When I got this idea I did not know how to build a web application though I had some basic knowledge of HTML but that was not sufficient to build the dynamic portal, which I had in my mind.

So I approached a startup to get it developed but the result was not inspiring. Amicably we came out of the agreement. Then I started learning the technology and was simultaneously building the portal and with the help of God I found another startup with well experienced developers to work on this project and Alhamdulillah the beta version of HalalTradeZone.com has been successfully developed, and we will launch the beta version in March 2013 by the will of the Allah.

I hope that this project will fulfill the need in the society and be the best in its sector, Insha’Allah.
The lesson here is to stay focused on what you want to achieve even if things seem to get complicated and be willing to learn new things that will help you achieve your goals. If you are sincere and hardworking then Allah (swt) will surely help you.

What are your future plans?

According to the plan I want to launch HalalTradeZone.com in at least 14 countries through local partnerships and take it to its full potential and make it the best and most comprehensive business portal in the world, Insha’Allah.

Who is your role model?

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s) is my role model. The teaching of our Prophet (s.a.s) on business ethics is such that if incorporated completely success is bound to happen Insha Allah.
And I also appreciate Richard Branson, Sheikh Sulaiman Al-Rajhi, Ratan Tata and Guy Kawasaki for their business tips and achievements in the business world.

What Success means to you?

Success is subjective, depends and varies from person to person. For me success is to see HalalTradeZone.com as a well reputed and the best B2B and B2C portal in the world and create opportunities for people to work and earn a dignified living.

What keeps you going, your motivational factor?

My vision and goals I want to achieve in my life keeps me going.

How do you plan to give back to the society?

Through HalalTradeZone.com we want to build bridges between communities and nations through trade so that we can understand each other better and provide top class service to a section of the society, create jobs for the other section and finally help the homeless, widows and orphans with1/3rd of our profits via our own and other registered foundations in an organized, transparent and well documented way so that we can make the world a better place, Insha Allah.

Some tips to our readers and aspiring entrepreneurs?

Do what you love and love what you do. Look for the unfulfilled need in the society and create something which will fulfill the need in the best possible way. Have good and optimistic people around you and stay away from pessimists.

Keep yourself updated with the latest developments in the area of your business, work hard and have strong faith in the help of the Almighty.

What are the adjectives that describes you the best?

Compassionate, Focused, Observant and Shy.
