How A Muslim Matchmaking Service Helps Young Women

By Kenneth Patterson

Most people have wandered through the very shady world of online dating, and as a rule women have simply avoided being a part of it. Women have mostly found that the men on these sites are married, or at the very least living with someone, and as such many of the female profiles on them are not real. However, a particular group of females have found good fortune on a Muslim matchmaking service.

Islamic law teaches that marriage is required for civilization to be strong and prosperous. With such a strong push toward marriage, young people on these sites are usually not looking for casual encounters. When one opens such a profile, unlike mainstream sites, they are expected to be very serious about seeking a mate.

Many who follow the Islamic faith are cut off from others who share their beliefs. Additionally, the world itself harbors distrust and fear, making it even more difficult for some to even be open with their peers about their religious perspectives. For these reasons, families have been actively involved in matching couples in Islam, and this makes simply meeting someone very weighty for both the man and woman.

Because of the seriousness of marriage in their culture, a new online oasis has been created. This allows young people to make connections outside family, with people their parents are likely to approve of. Not only that, but it has created a world where women are able to have greater power over who they might want to spend time, and possibly the rest of their lives with.

Unfortunately, the parents and grandparents are still very skeptical about the online method of meeting people. There are certainly dangers inherent to such a meeting, and both women and men are taking a risk. The truth is that when people meet online they do not truly know who they are speaking to.

Safety is always going to be a concern when people meet online, and these dating sites are no less risky than any others when it comes to that fateful first meeting. The Internet allows a person to be dishonest about who they are and what they intend in a variety of ways. However, with new services such as video chatting, these dangers are somewhat lessened by the fact that they get to meet before their meeting.

Westerners who follow Islam have really no other solid ways to meet others of their faith. The same is true of Jewish people, and any Christian families who also share the perspective that any potential mates must follow their same spiritual path. These websites have made it possible for people to meet real human beings without trying to narrow down search criteria on sites already known for being sketchy.

These websites are extremely helpful to the young women of this faith, for it grants them the ability to make real choices about what sort of man they spend their time, and ultimately their life with. Traditionally, the women of Islam are expected to follow whatever path their family sets for them, sometimes without even the freedom to say no to suitor. However, with modern tools, even a traditional girl can meet familial expectations while still seeking that man who will make her most happy.
