Muslima.com is a fantastic dating site specifically devoted to helping Muslim singles, both men and women, find love and companionship online. With a firm focus on building long-term, lasting and meaningful relationships, Muslima.com is the perfect destination if you're looking for the perfect life-partner online.
Muslima.com is part of the Cupid Media network of sites, a group of more than 30 dating sites that have a reputation for providing quality services to their users. All of the Cupid Media sites are focused towards a particular user group (making them so-called 'niche' dating sites, catering for a specific audience) and Muslima.com, is of course, no different.
With literally hundreds of thousands of Muslim users and around 4,100 users online at any one time, Muslima.com is one of the most popular sites we have reviewed and brings together singles from across the world.
With a range of fantastic features to complement its substantial user base, Muslima.com is the perfect place to start your online search for your ideal partner. With all this to offer, it's no surprise that Muslima.com is the winner of our No.1 Choice award in this category, making this site our preferred option within the Muslim dating market.
Joining Muslima.com and getting started in your search for 'the one' really couldn't be easier. The tried and tested Cupid Media Network setup ensures that creating a profile with Muslima.com is extremely easy and allows users to customize their profile from the very start.
Paying users can add up to five high resolution images to their profile, along with filling in the detailed membership questionnaire which forms the basis of every user's profile. To complete a full, detailed profile would, by our estimations, take around half an hour, but those users who are eager to get surfing around the site to check out what is on offer can complete a basic profile in around five minutes and return at any time to complete additional sections. We very much like the customizability of the profiles on Muslima.com, a feature that is very much a trademark of the quality service provided by Cupid Media websites.
As well as the internal mail service, you can also use a fantastic online instant messaging service, allowing you to chat real-time with other users.
The one downside to Muslima.com, in terms of the user profiles that are available on the site, is that you can only upload 5 images to your profiles (whereas on many other sites the number that premium members can upload is unlimited). Whilst for most users, five images will probably be enough, we felt that for around $140 a year, some users may wish to upload more than five images. It's a minor grumble though and, all in all, the profile building tools on Muslima.com match up to the standard expected of all Cupid Media sites.
As well as great profile building tools, Muslima.com offers a great range of communication tools in order to build a lasting relationship. In the first instance, you have access to an excellent in-site email service, which allows you to contact any other site member by searching them in the site directory. You can enhance your messages by adding smilies, photos and video clips to your mail, to make your communications a little more exciting.
As well as the internal mail service, you can also use a fantastic online instant messaging service, allowing you to chat real-time with other users. This feature is extremely well-designed, allowing you to juggle conversations with more than one user at once, as well as see a 'mini-profile' for the user you're chatting to. During the research phase for this review, we were also able to see just how popular the feature is, with hundreds of members online and waiting to chat during peak-times.
You can also send 'interests' to other users, to let them know that you would like to chat to them and find out more about them. To chat more generally with members of the site, about a range of topics, you can get involved with discussions on the site's popular chatrooms. These are also extremely busy, and offer a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and get involved with the site's online community.
Many users find that the chatrooms offer a 'no pressure' way of getting to know other members of the site, and many of the site's success stories tell of members meeting each other over a mutual interest expressed in a chatroom. If you would like to get to know another member a little better, you can also chat with them using the Muslima.com video mail service, which allows users to record a personalized message and send it, through the internal mail service, to another user.
We were extremely impressed by the quality of this service, as well as how easy it was to use, and felt it was a great way for users to get to know each other properly before meeting outside of the digital world. The fact that users can also record a video section to add to their profile is another fantastic feature, and allows them to make their profiles stand out from the crowd.
With Muslima.com, however, this host of communicative features is not the end of the benefits you get from subscription membership. You have access to an impressive advanced search engine which is customizable to take into account more than 48 different criteria in order to return the best, most focused results. You can also filter your search results to limit results to particular geographical locations or religious beliefs, meaning that it's even easier to find the perfect partner.
As Muslima.com is just as much an online community as a dating site, you also have access to a range of community features such as news articles, an online magazine, forums and more, so that you quickly feel part of the Muslima.com community. You can also make use of the fantastic 'personality test' feature, which allows you to take a brief personality test and post the results online as part of your profiles.
You can further utilize this information by using the 'Matching Service' which automatically suggests potential matches on the basis of mutually corresponding personality test results. Whilst this function won't work for everyone (after all, opposites do attract!), the service can certainly provide some interesting potential matches and has been useful in the past.
Muslima.com is a fantastic site that offers a great complement of excellent features. The one, small, downside to Muslima.com is that it is perhaps a little more expensive than other sites we have reviewed in this category (and indeed, other niche categories within the online dating market). The upside, however, is that Muslima.com is part of the proven online dating formula that is used on all Cupid Media online dating sites.
The site has loads of active users and a range of great communication features to let you get in touch with whoever interests you. Muslima.com offers a fantastic opportunity to meet other Muslim singles from around the world.
