Qiran.com is one of the best sites we have reviewed within this category, and when you check out the excellent features and active membership available with premium subscription to the site, it's easy to see why it's so popular. With more than 3 million members on the site, both male and female, from right across the world, users of Qiran.com are practically guaranteed to be able to get in contact with their perfect partner.
Qiran.com is also a site designed by Muslims, for Muslims, with explicit care taken to ensure that the site adheres strictly to Islamic principles relating to dating and relationships. As dating is strictly prohibited within Islamic teaching, Qiran.com advertises itself as a site designed to help Muslim singles meet for the purposes of building long-term, meaningful relationships that will eventually result in marriage. With a fantastic range of features, as well as one of the biggest membership bases we have found in this category, it's clear that Qiran.com has a lot to offer its users.
Joining Qiran.com is extremely simple, though many users may find that the comprehensive and lengthy questionnaire that forms part of the joining process takes up a little more time than they would like. Whilst it is clear that such an extensive questioning process in the initial stages helps to ensure that members are more likely to meet the individual of their dreams (and thus have the best possible chance of leaving Qiran.com with a marriage proposal), you may prefer to get going on a site before completing such extensive questionnaires.
That said, the fact that Qiran.com is designed by Muslims (who are clearly knowledgeable about the issues that are important to Muslims who are thinking about using sites like this) the questionnaires are both culturally relevant and sympathetic to the particular social needs of Muslims of all denominations. The fact that profiles can be added not just by the individual themselves, but also by a relative or guardian, is just one example of how Qiran.com is deliberately tailored to the requirements of Halal dating.
Qiran.com is also home to a vast range of impressive features and resources, intended to make the process of finding ‘the one’ a little more exciting. Whilst Islamic principles forbids ‘dating’ in a traditional sense (and therefore many of the features that may be associated with regular adult dating may not be present on Muslim Dating sites), Qiran.com has gone to great efforts to ensure that the process of ‘dating’ online is just as controlled, and fun, as it is in real life.
Whilst users do not have access to instant messaging services hosted within the site, they can send SMS messages to other users (if they are a premium member), send e-cards to celebrate birthdays or special occasions or even ‘send a song’ to another user. This feature is excellent, as it allows users to get to know each other’s personalities and tastes, so that both parties can make informed decisions about the other.
Similarly, users can host their own personal photo album, which can be used to share pictures of themselves, their families, friends, hobbies and interests, so that they can really get to know each other. With a storage capacity of up to 10GB for premium users, you should never be short of space to share your personality. Users can also use an excellent search function (to find other suitable users) and can then verify their identity using the site’s built in authentication checking services.
Being a truly worldly site, Qiran.com has a fantastic selection of language tools, intended to support users in getting to know people in other countries (or those who simply do not share the same mother-tongue).
The only slight qualm we had with Qiran.com was the number of profiles without a picture which does make browsing a bit less exciting. Fortunately, you can filter out those profiles without photos, although you should take this into account when assessing the membership size of Qiran.com.
With a fantastic selection of useful, well thought-out features and a huge, international membership, Qiran.com really could be the perfect place to start your search for the individual you will spend the rest of your life with. If you like the sound of the features discussed here, check out the site’s free trial membership option to familiarize yourself with what Qiran.com has to offer.
