Hi, in contrary of @WhiteScreen advice, i'll advise you to make a thouroughal investigation wether this brand is trademarked. If so, they could file a UDRP against you (= sue you).
If it is not trademarked you can register but then again, what if they don't want it? I believe there's a reason why they haven't registered this domain yet, and sometimes a facebook page is enough for some types of businesses.
You can't only count on selling the domain name to the facebook page. In general - I believe you should have at least a couple of potential end-users when buying a domain name.

May I ask where your'e from?

Good luck!

it's not a business page and also I don't think that it's trademarked , but it's a big active page ,they have a website under construction but not with the same word maybe be because their name is complicated or maybe they just dont care which I think a big mistake cause the name has traffic on google
I bought the domain , it's just 1$ with a coupon code so I will not loose that much
I live in egypt and the domain industry is not big there and not advanced and people are not interested so I think there is some possibility to take some advantages
but I dont know how to let them buy it
Thanks

If it is like you stated, there's definitely not much to lose and it is worth the shot.
I live in Israel, and am experiencing the same feel about the domain industry here as you do in Egypt.

I wish you luck with the sale though!

This is not good practice in business. I doubt they will want it if they could have registered it themselves for $10
