Nikah.com is an online dating and matrimonial service tailored specifically to the particular needs of Muslims worldwide. Founded in 1998, Nikah.com has since attracted more than 2 million users worldwide, testament to its solid reputation within the Islamic community.
Nikah.com prides itself on offering Muslims a viable alternative to traditional methods of matchmaking used within Islamic communities, helping those who cannot find the perfect match in their local area connect with someone further afield.
Joining Nikah.com is simple, if a little time consuming. You simply fill in a fairly extensive membership questionnaire, which contains questions probing all of the most important areas of your life so that your profile accurately reflects who you are as a person. The thorough membership questionnaire does have the added benefit of ensuring that search results are extremely focused on search criteria, as profiles hosted on the site are so rich in information.
Furthermore, users are required to verify their phone number which, although is very reassuring regarding security at Nikah.com, can be a bit of a hassle for those simply wanting to check out the website. Fortunately, our review summarizes the most important features of Nikah.com, saving you the readers valuable time.
Users have the option to add up to 5 photographs to their profile, which, although sufficient for most people, is a long way from the ‘unlimited’ profiles of other sites within the category and we felt that some users may find such a restriction quite limiting.
Whilst Nikah.com clearly has a place in the hearts of many Muslims, as it suggests it is the world's largest Muslim matrimonial service, we thought that a few features were missing (especially considering the cost of the service) and a few minor changes would make a vast difference in terms of value for money (and indeed, where we rank the site within our reviews).
What most disappointed us was the poor web design of the site. The 'help' and 'about' sections seem to have disappeared and clicking these links simply brings you back to your profile page. Considering the cost of Nikah.com we feel that a well designed website would add value, making browsing a little easier.
Whilst Nikah.com is clearly missing a few things, it is one of the best sites we have come across in terms of strictly applying Halal principles to online matrimonial services, a feature we know will prove important for many of our readers. Along with stricter security requirements, we believe the user base of Nikah.com to take the site seriously.
Furthermore, Nikah.com explicitly points to elements of religious teaching and Islamic scholarly discussion that have informed their strategy and ethos. We felt that this aspect of the site was particularly impressive.
If you would like to check out what Nikah.com has to offer, you can create a profile (with a little effort) completely free of charge.
