How will the Muslim Hearts marriage events be different?
Our events are by invitation only and exclusive. We believe quality is important to the Muslim audience so instead of inviting 100's of people to 1 event, we are having a small personalised gathering with equal numbers of brothers and sisters. Invitations will be based on compatibility of those attending. We believe smaller events will be more likely to achieve success and be a more beneficial experience for those attending.
In our research, we have discovered some horror/difficult stories where people who do not have the right intentions turn up at larger events and cause difficulties. Our efforts Insha’Allah will ensure genuine and serious people attend.
Our events are not based around speed dating but more around activities. Activities where people can safely interact and engage with each other in a Halal and Islamic environment and where Mahrams are encouraged to attend.
What if I don't have a Mahram to bring along?
If for whatever reason you don’t have a mahram, feel free to bring along a friend.
How much will the event cost?
The price will be confirmed once we have received your profile and will be no more than £99 per person. There will be an additional nominal charge for Mahrams. We have a dedicated team that is going through each profile and each question to ensure invitations are made based on maximum compatibility. Tickets are pre-booked and pre-paid for. NO tickets are available on the day, ensuring quality of attendance and an equal ratio of brothers and sisters. The price of the ticket will help ensure those who are only serious about getting married attend.
Where will the events take place?
The events initially are planned for the UK in major cities starting with London with international events starting in 2015.
How are you ensuring there won't be more women to more men or vice versa?
The event is pre-paid and by invitation only. As such we can ensure the best ratio possible. As this is an exclusive event we will know exactly who will be attending each event.
How will you ensure I have a good chance of meeting someone I am potentially compatible with at the event?
Unlike most marriage sites we actually use real life people to go through profiles. We don't use complex computer algorithms to match you. Computers don’t have hearts, nor the true desire to measure success of seeing you happily married Insha’Allah! The people analysing your profiles have your best interest at heart and will be spending significant time going through your profiles and making the right decisions.
I like the fact you're inviting Mahrams but what is their role at the event?
We believe Mahrams should also be invited to such events and we will be actively encouraging Mahrams to attend. They can observe the activities and also interact with other Mahrams at the event. It's a great opportunity for parents/siblings to meet parents/siblings. Often mahrams can provide a very beneficial perspective to help us meet the right one.
Will there be food and drinks at the event?
There will be light refreshments and soft drinks available at the event, which are included in the registration fee.
Why don't you just do a simple event and invite 100's of people and have no need for profiles and registrations? Leave it all to Allah.
Islam teaches us to prepare as best as possible and then leave the rest to Allah. In the battle of Badr the Prophet (peace be upon him) prepared immaculately and once all the preparations were completed he then prayed for success. Throwing hundreds of people into a room with no control is a lazy way of running an event.
We believe in offering a high quality beneficial experience by preparing as best as possible. And of course once that is done, success is through Allah (SWT) alone.
What is the dress code?
Formal dress attire. Remember you could meet your future spouse at this event. Please dress modestly and appropriately.
What happens if I like someone at the event?
Our events will Insha’Allah act as a catalyst to facilitate and bring together you and your future spouse. If you like someone at the event, and feel you are able to speak to them directly, then we are happy for you or your mahram to approach them directly at the event.
We also know that sometimes it is very difficult to express interest. When the Prophet (peace be upon him) was proposed to by our lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) it was through her friend Lady Nafisa. We know that, no matter how confident we are, it can be difficult.
So if you would like to engage further with someone but can’t tell them, you can inform us and we will make the contact for you after the event. If the person you like is also interested, we will put you both in touch and step out of the conversation.
