      ask through the mosque, ask through relatives. when they find someone compatible they can arrange a meeting for you.

      theres also websites but i don't think its advised for me to mention that...

            You send your mom or grandma or any other female relative to the mosque to start scouting the scene. She will see who seems suitable or she will talk to all of her friends there to ask if they know anybody. And then they will report back to you to give you what information they have gathered.

              Why doesn't this site have a match making section? I can't be the first to suggest this

                  Believe me, people have been suggesting it for years.

                  But they want to keep the forum strictly for discussions only. If you're interested in someone you have to message the mods.

                    Son, you are a wise old goat. Why don't you help people out. I think you would make a lovely uncle matchmaker.

                      You need to get to 100 posts and then a mod would get in touch.

                        Sure, son. Sure.

                        Let me know which user it is and I'll see what I can do for you.

                          Through the masjid matrimonial books (if they have them - or something equivalent)

                          Online Muslim matrimonial services - which can be terrible since you have to wade through and filter out a lot of incompatible people

                          Via family or friend suggestions - they might know of someone single who's on the same level as you

                          Joining Muslim matrimonial WhatsApp/Facebook groups where they post profiles - but they can be very selective i.e focused on one ethnic background or cultural group.

                          Sometimes - and this isn't the ideal but it can/does happen - you might see someone in college or work that is compatible. It can get tricky navigating how to correctly approach them so I wouldn't do that unless you know, for sure, that there's a halal means of approach and further communication.

                          Local Muslim organisations might have some programmes catered towards Muslim singles so check them out. It could be a database or service they provide.

                          And yeah, people can and do meet online on Islam-focused boards - but that's usually a side effect and doesn't happen all that often.

                          But even after all that, the most important thing to remember is that it'll happen when it happens. Be proactive, of course, but don't get disheartened if things prove tricky. Try not to give up.

                            I thought it was aunties who did that sort of stuff.

                            Though it's nice to know there's gender equality in the matchmaking department. Can't let the aunties have all the fun.

                              I'm not convinced the aunties are doing a great job. It's turned into a money making exercise. We need a change. The likes of Bashy I think would do it out of love. I can see him getting quite teary on each successfully match up. Although we need to remain vigilant and ensure he's not thinking of all the walima invites he would be getting.
