"We at Maisarah continue to be the leading provider of shariah-compliant products and services for both retail and corporate customers."

"This agreement comes as part of our broader strategic plan and continuous efforts to provide tailored financial solutions to our diverse customer base."

Muscat is the capital of Oman and visitors can walk for miles along the city's pristine beaches and coastline. Holidaymakers can explore the city's historic sites and tourist attractions such as the Al Jalali Fort and Al Mirani forts, Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace, Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the Bait az-Zubair Museum and the Qurum National Park.

Oman has become a popular tourist destination over recent years and the country now offers a selection of luxury hotels, attractions, sights and activities for travellers of all ages.

Despite the thousands of miles of dry golden sand deserts and dunes, Oman is fast-becoming a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkelling. The shores off the coast of Muscat are teeming with colourful soft and hard corals and hundreds of marine species, from seahorses and Oman clownfish, to loggerhead turtles, dolphins, sharks and humpback whales.
