In many Muslim communities, arranged marriage is standard practice. While this concept might have its advantages, many young Muslims in the West are starting to view this process of introduction and vetting as somewhat burdensome, and are turning to other more comfortable, and less embarrassing ways of finding a life partner. Luckily, technology here has once again come to the rescue.

Online dating sites such as are leading the way regarding their efficiency in delivering a solid platform where like-minded people can find a partner who shares the same Muslim faith. So, without further ado, let’s get started with the review of was established in 2000 by Cupid Media, which is a leading niche dating network that operates a number of dating sites that are explicitly based on religion, ethnicity etc. Cupid Media has a proud history of providing dating platforms that offer the best in quality and safety, and is no exception.

Unlike the typical online dating websites, sites such as have been created for and explicitly geared towards Muslim men and women who are looking for a suitable partner to marry.

While traditionally, the concept of dating or using online dating sites was considered immoral by many in the Islamic faith, Muslim immigrant communities in Western countries have found online dating to be quite convenient in finding a suitable marriage companion, rather than sitting in the backseat and letting their parents or relatives do the talking.

Nowadays, forward-thinking Muslim adults, especially those who are living in the West are not particularly comfortable with the “arranged” marriage concept and see as Muslim dating as a process which is tied into marriage and religion. is considered to be a leader in this specific niche and is enjoying steady growth in its members ever since its inception nearly 17 years ago. Overall, offers a reliable and easy-to-use platform where young Muslims can find love, which may eventually lead to a happily married life.

With over 4.5 million members, the platform is considered to be the leading site for Muslim people looking to find partners for marriage. is also extremely popular amongst Muslim singles aged 25 and above, who are looking to find their first love, or divorcees who are looking forward to a second chance at finding love.

What sets from other similar sites is that it caters to all types or members, even those who have converted to Islam. But, what makes it one of the better dating platforms out there is the fact that it allows each member to provide detailed information about themselves and what they look for in a person.

This time and effort factor accompanied by the easy option to report potential scammers to the administrators, brings down the number of fake profiles showing up. No dating site, however, is devoid of scammers so, as ever, do be watchful as some profiles may slip through the scrutiny net. also enjoys over 1,400 daily logins from members, and according to the website, has a gender proportion that’s divided almost equally between male and female members.

The United States accounts for nearly 300,000 of the users of

There are also users who are over the age of 40, who are mostly divorcees, and have not given up on finding true love.

Additional Features

It is essential to make sure you fill out the questionnaire as best as you can so that the platform can find the best suitable match for you. Some areas of the questionnaire have compulsory answers, such as sect of Islam, willing to revert, whether you have read the Quran or not, gender, age, location, etc. A significant portion of the cultural section of the questionnaire is geared towards finding out the fundamental values of the individual and how involved they are when it comes to practicing their faith. Once you have completed the questionnaire, you have to upload a picture of yourself, and that’s it.
