Part of the World Singles network, Islamic Marriage offers the same top-notch features as the larger international dating sites while at the same time catering to the niche market of Muslim dating. This network includes sites such as Zawaj Matrimonials and Iranian Personals which use exactly the same features and template as Islamic Marriage. For this reason, users may find our reviews for these sites rather similar even though we will attempt in our review to highlight the differences.
Islamic Marriage promises to do exactly what it says on the box; facilitate marriage between Muslims! To begin the process, you need to sign up, which is easy and only takes 5 minutes. Although the site does ask you for additional information that will be required in order to verify your profile and attract attention, this step can be skipped for the time being.
Once you're signed up you can begin browsing the other profiles hosted by Islamic Marriage. Photos and information on these profiles are limited and to get to know anyone you will probably have to initiate contact which requires an upgrade to premium membership. You can get in touch by sending a message or engaging in live chat.
Once you get to know someone, a great way to develop the relationship is by beginning audio and video chat; we all know that the tone of someone's voice or laughter can be the spark that lights true love! Also, it's worth knowing that Islamic Marriage makes use of World Single's 5 star safety program which, supported by VeriSign, gives users the peace of mind that their personal and card details will remain private.
Although Islamic Marriage does cater exclusively to Muslims, we have encountered sites that offer a more comprehensive halaal dating experience. As a Muslim, "dating" can be difficult and sometimes leads to tricky questions and decisions regarding the practice and understanding of your religion.
Some other websites in this category such as Nikah.com provide far more guidance (both spiritual and practical) in this regard. However, the fact that only Muslims are allowed to sign up with Islamic Marriage does make things easier for those certain of marrying within their faith.
We found there to be around 160 users online at any one time during our testing of our site which, although not bad, is certainly not much compared to the millions of active users on sites such as Muslima.com. For this reason, it did feel as though all the great features of Islamic Marriage were wasted a little on the limited user base of this site. On the other hand, the Islamic Marriage is cheaper than most of the competition which is better for your wallet and could mean that this site becomes more popular in the future.
Overall, Islamic Marriage offers top notch features at a great price yet is let down by a limited base of active users and little guidance for Muslim daters. Those looking for a cheap alternative may be interested in giving it a go. However, we would recommend spending a little more money on a more popular site in order to greatly increase your chances of meeting that special someone online.
