Sohar Islamic, Sohar International’s Islamic Window, has launched three new credit cards in the Signature, Platinum, and Gold categories.

This move intends to expand Sohar Islamic’s card portfolio to offer convenient payment solutions. These new Sharia-compliant cards combine exceptional benefits in travel, wellness, and lifestyle, catering to the growing desire for exclusive services, elevated experiences, and unique products.

According to the statement, customers can now enjoy flexible spending management and secure payments through the convenient contactless tap-and-go feature.

Furthermore, customers have the option to link their new Sohar Islamic credit cards to Samsung Wallet, enabling seamless digital transactions through Samsung Pay across a range of Samsung smart devices.

Commenting on the launch of the new credit cards, Mr. Abdul Wahid Al Murshidi, Chief Islamic Banking Officer at Sohar International, said that, “As a customer-centric bank, Sohar Islamic is deeply inclined toward introducing innovative propositions that add value to the lives of its customers. Our specially curated new Sharia-compliant credit cards will go beyond empowering our customers with more financial flexibility and freedom – cardholders will also benefit from a seamless user experience, enhanced security, and abundant rewards.”

With these credit cards, cardholders can take advantage of multiple payment options based on their financial preferences. They can either pay in full or opt for partial or minimum payments. Meanwhile, the generous rewards program ensures that the bank’s credit cardholders also enjoy attractive benefits such as loyalty points and exclusive discounts at partner merchants. With this, the bank places increased emphasis on parameters that are most valued.

Sohar Islamic has seamlessly integrated the new credit cards with the Sohar Islamic user-friendly mobile banking app. This integration allows customers to conveniently manage their card activities, make payments, and track their rewards from wherever they are, as per the statement.

Furthermore, Sohar Islamic has also equipped the cards with advanced security features as customer data protection and upholding the highest standards of security in transactions remain a top priority for the bank.
