Finding Mates Made Easy for Muslims

In Focus News, News Report, Nuran Alteir Posted: Feb 28, 2010

Finding a spouse that meets your religious needs has never been easier since Marry Me Muslim launched in Nov. 2009.

Now you can look for potential spouses by answering simple questions, from personality to family life.

Founder Nabeel Khatri said he created the site because of his experiences when looking for a wife.

In our culture, because we dont date, we dont really know much about the person were going to marry, Khatri, a 33-year-old network engineer, said.

One of the things he learned from his first marriage was to ask more questions.

He is now married to his second wife after a divorce, which he said was because he didnt ask enough questions. He met both his wife and his ex online, he said.

Mainly, the two groups of people who would join the site, and others like it, are those who are facing a divorce stigma and those who just cant find someone they click with.

But Marry Me Muslim is open for all types of people looking for marriage.

One user, who wished to remain anonymous, said she heard about the site from Khatris wife and that her experience so far has been pleasant.

I love how the site is set up, she said. It is different from some of the other matrimonial sites out there.

She specifically liked how the answers matched users up. There are more than 100 questions that line users up with someone based on how many common answers two users have. When searching, users with the most in common with you will be at the top.

The user said she thinks matrimonial sites, in general, are great for people who dont have a lot of networking in their community.

Online, there are a lot of people youre able to interact with, people you may not be able to find otherwise, she said.

The site is devoted to single Muslims. Men who are already married are forewarned that if discovered, their account will be removed.

As Muslims, we understand the nature of polygamy in Islam, the page reads. However, this site has been developed specifically for single Muslims interested in finding a marriage partner.

Khatri said he heard of Muslim men looking for second wives on other matrimonial Web sites and didnt want that kind of atmosphere on Marry Me Muslim.

Muslims, he said, should ask a lot of questions before saying I do, but what it comes down to is that they dont.
