Finding true love is something we all aim to do at some point in our lives. This idea is especially important for Muslims as we’re well aware of all the benefits that come with finding a life partner. Not only did Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) encourage it, he also branded it as an achievement that helps you “complete half of your deen”, so it’s no wonder that Muslims strive to find a good partner as soon as possible.
But this does not come without its challenges. And as time moves on, more and more Muslims are choosing to look for life partner options online.
“Why?” I hear you ask. Well, there are a few reasons.
Firstly, the more traditional methods just aren’t working anymore.
While a lot of people used to meet through friends and family connections back in the day, this method is now deemed too exhausting, not to mention outdated. Of course, this differs depending on what kind of people you know, but it just doesn’t have the same effect anymore, nor is it sustainable.
And the other big reason is the same reason why everything else changed too… COVID-19.
It’s no secret that the global pandemic completely altered all of our lives. Not only did major aspects of our lives switch to being online, but for some of us, it also changed the way we interact with each other. It may be sad to say, or happy depending on how you want to see it, but a lot of us feel more comfortable first meeting people online compared to in real life.
A lot of young Muslims are now looking to find love on apps such as MuslimMatch, the fastest-growing Muslim matchmaking app which already has over 1 million downloads. The app offers you match recommendations based on compatibility of age, education, lifestyle, location and religious practices, with profiles from culturally homogenous groups. It’s the best opportunity to find like-minded people and find your forever happiness. It’s available on iOS and Android.
Apps like these offer thousands of choices when it comes to finding a life partner, but in particular, MuslimMatch has gone the extra mile by adding some special features to make sure Muslims are in control of their journey to finding the ideal spouse.
The app has been efficiently designed so that users, more importantly, female users, get a refined experience. Women have the power to see who has viewed or liked their profile and they can then directly initiate a chat with those specific profiles that are a mutual match. Not only that, the advanced filters allow for further refinement so you can easily search for profiles that match your own lifestyle and religious needs.
Unlike some other matchmaking apps, MuslimMatch doubles up on screening their profiles so you don’t have to be worried about who you’re talking to. Firstly, all users have to verify themselves via a mobile phone number and a selfie combination, the classic. But even after that, there’s a manual screening feature that continues to “weed out” non-serious users.
Other general features include searching by community or location, which is a pretty crucial part of the journey. The app is available in 9 international languages including French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, Turkish, Indonesian and Malay to make it easier for non-English speaking Muslims to have full control of their experience.
And if you’re a little new to the game, or you’re confused as to where to start, then the Compatible Match Recommendation feature will be your best friend. With this specific feature, you can view the profiles of interesting matches, which includes their basic details and photos, in order to decide whether you wish to pursue things further with that person. And MuslimMatch will make sure it’s constantly updating you with those new matches throughout the process via their notification alert so you’re instantly informed about your matching partners.
So what are you waiting for? If MuslimMatch sounds like the perfect app for you, download it today and you never know, you could meet your future husband/ wife on there pretty soon!
