Saudi Arabian Traders Shocked to Have Indonesian Mothers as Customers, Their Behavior is as Aggressive as in Tanah Abang Market

Dream - The Holy Land never dries up by pilgrims from Indonesia. Thousands of Muslims from Indonesia always fly to the Holy Land for umrah and hajj. When the hajj season arrives, thousands of pilgrims from Indonesia join millions of Muslims from all over the Earth to fulfill the fifth pillar of Islam.

The flow of umrah pilgrims, as well as the annual hajj, is certainly a blessing for traders in Saudi Arabia. These pilgrims become the target of local traders. Various commodities are prepared for Indonesian pilgrims, ranging from souvenirs, perfumes, religious necessities, to food souvenirs such as dates.

The following is the translation of the given 'Bahasa' text to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "Goods and souvenirs can actually be bought in the Homeland. In Tanah Abang, for example, there are souvenirs such as dates, prayer mats, prayer beads, and various hajj and umrah trinkets, in abundance. Hajj and umrah pilgrims can get the same items at a cheaper price. However, it is not complete if one does not bring souvenirs from the Holy Land."

"So it is not surprising that many Saudi traders are very enthusiastic in welcoming the arrival of pilgrims, especially from Indonesia. They hope that the pilgrims love shopping. This means that the pilgrims are a source of money. The earners of dinar. Traders even accept Indonesian rupiah in their transactions as long as the Indonesian pilgrims are willing to shop."

The Saudi merchants are also friendly. They are not hesitant to greet and smile in order to attract Indonesian pilgrims. In fact, we have certainly heard that they can speak Indonesian, including Javanese. They also mention a number of Indonesian figures, from Jokowi to Prabowo, to attract Indonesian pilgrims.

Customer Emak-Emak

One of the Saudi traders who can speak Indonesian can be seen in a video uploaded by the TikTok account @muchtadil_anwar. If we hear the way he speaks and do not see his face which is indeed typical of the Middle East, we might mistake him for an Indonesian person.

In the video, the white-garbed merchant can be seen serving customers in his shop. Instead of using Arabic, he entertained his customers in Indonesian. Apparently, at that time there were Indonesian mothers who were shopping. The dark blue hijab-wearing mothers wanted to buy a bracelet.

Persistent Bidding

Like most mothers in Indonesian markets, those mothers also bargained for the bracelet they wanted to buy. "This one, 60 thousand," said the male merchant. "Don't be stingy," replied the mothers quickly, while poking the merchant with their hands. "You be stingy," she continued. "You're welcome," replied the merchant, while laughing.

               

"Berapa yang benar?" the mothers urged. The merchant then priced one bracelet at 40 thousand. He counted the bracelets in the hands of the mothers up to four pieces. "This is 160," said the merchant after finishing counting. "Alright, 120 then, I'll pay," said the persistent mother who bargained.

Merchants are Equally Tenacious

However, the merchant refused. He waved his hand indicating disagreement. However, the mothers insisted. "For charity," said the mothers. "Wait, no discount," said the merchant.

However, in the end, the transaction was successful. The merchant was seen putting the bracelet into the bag, and even giving another bracelet. "This is a gift," said the merchant. The intense bargaining ended happily. Both the seller and the buyer smiled with the agreed price.
