It is located in the Nefzaoua region on the road from Kébili to Tozeur, just east of the point where the road begins its traversal of the Chott el-Jerid. It is the administrative seat of a delegation of the same name.
As of 2004 Soul Lahad had a population of 18,285.
As suggested by its name—sūq al-aḥad means "Sunday market" in Arabic—the town developed as an agricultural community before light industry was introduced, as well as some tourism, with a luxury hotel.
