REALITY

In response to why so few Muslim businesses grow into large companies, a subscriber writes:

I read with interest the article on why so few Muslim owned businesses grow into large corporations. With due respect, I don’t think the article got to grips with the central issues.

I offer some thoughts:

Muslim businesses in SA have a long heritage, stretching back to the arrival of traders from India some 125 years ago. These traders established mainly retail businesses, which were passed from generation to generation and were reasonably successful in the context of providing a good standard of living to the owners. However, in the last 20-30 years many of these businesses have failed or had to be closed/sold due to a variety of reasons, amongst which are the following:
1.    The businesses did not "move with the times" as it were. Little consideration was given to geographical location and the movement of, and changes within, the target markets. Research into this critical aspect of business was absent. For example, a general dealer doing well in the 50’s, 60’s and even 70’s in a small town, was completely blindsided, and unprepared for the changes in the style of business in the 80’s. When a franchise operation came to town, he was unable to take on the fight due to lack of knowledge of the new modus operandi (aisles and till points replacing counters, as a case in point!), resistance to change, a dismissive attitude to the exhortations of the younger generation, and at times lack of capital.
2.    I have observed many medium to large Muslim enterprises not investing sufficiently in business systems that would allow better overall control, communication and forecasting.  Instead cheap labour is employed in positions of trust, often to the detriment of the company, when these employees exploit the lack of controls for their nefarious ends. In most cases the losses and impact far outweigh the amounts that would have been spent in latest technologies. Proper controls and advanced systems allow businesses to expand by minimising risk and reducing pilferage, and reducing opportunity for employee dishonesty.

HUMOROUS STORY FROM ISLAMIC HISTORY

Only Fools

A philosopher arrived at a shop to purchase some oil. As he entered he noticed a bell hanging around the neck of an ox and asked the owner, "What is the reason for this?"
The owner replied, "We are working-class people. As we have to accomplish all the work with our own hands, we do not have the time to see to the ox. The sound of the bell indicates to us that the ox is walking and doing its job. When we do not hear the bell we realize that it has stopped and we can then get it moving again."
"But," the philosopher explained, "the ringing of a bell is not necessarily a sign that the ox is in motion because the ox may just stand still and shake its head."
"Fortunately, my ox has not learnt any logic or philosophy. I suggest you depart quickly so that my ox does not decide to become a student of yours," the owner exclaimed.
