Once registered you will have access to our database were you can search members, filtering by Age, sex, ethnicity, height, build, marital status employment status etc to narrow down suitable matches.
PROCESS – Simple as A, B, C
A. If you like a members profile you have two options:
1. Request photo or
2. Request contact details (members discretion as to contact details they are willing to share)
An email is sent to that member notifying them that you have requested to see a photo or further contact details.
B. That member then has the option to accept or decline your request:
1. If they accept your photo request then their photo will become visible to you ONLY.
2. If they accept contact details , one of the following will become visible depending on which contact information the users is willing to disclose:
· phone number or
· email address or
· phone number of their Mehram or
· email address of their Mehram or
· Can request a virtual meetup online (Email Mosque for this service on firstname.lastname@example.org)
C. If member rejects your request you will be notified through email.
Once contact details have been exchanged the work of the bureau to some extent has been done. The onus is then on you to take things forward by communicating and meeting families with a view hopefully towards marriage. If however things don’t turn out as expected you always have the option to start your search again for other members.
Why do you have to add a photo?
Adding a photo makes it easier for others to see who you are before taking things further. In most cases it is deemed an important starting point of any marriage proposal.
A photo is not compulsory during the registration process. It is however highly recommended that you have a photo uploaded so when a member does request to see what you look like then it is readily available within your gallery.
Remember only members you allow access to view your photos will ever be able to see them, otherwise photos and contact details remain private.
Most relationships and marriages these days start with the initial face to face meeting to establish a connection before pursuing further.
We have heard many instances of individuals making long journeys out of town after being notified from friends or family of that potential perfect partner. Only to realise fairly quickly upon that front door opening that their dreams have been shattered once again and it will be a long quiet journey home. We hope to eradicate these awkward instances by allowing you to see a photo of the person in private before you accept to send contact details. We therefore also have the reject option to show that based upon photo there was no compatibility.
We recommend having a mehram, a true definition would be your father, brother, uncle etc. but we have used this term more loosely to include anybody that can be used as a middle person. We suggest using your parents, brothers or sisters but in essence it can be anyone you are comfortable with being involved in the process.
Parents feel the same pressures when they have children growing up and find it’s not always an easy task getting their children married. Acting as mehrams, parents can register their children and search the database themselves for members they feel may be compatible. Parents can take the initiative to gather contact details and communicate with members that take their interest before their child even gets involved. This process works with your family in mind and aims to be user friendly for both parents and individuals looking for marriage.
Mehram`s details can be used as a barrier between two members. Women in particular may be reluctant to disclose contact details unless they are certain the person is right for them or even someone they can trust. Woman who are contacted by members to disclose their contact details should in this scenario send their Mehram`s contact details. Communication then takes place between the member and Mehram of the interested match. Female contact details are this way kept safe and never disclosed.
USING Central Mosque as your Mehram
We appreciate some people may not have Mehram’s to represent them. In these instances Central Mosque can be utilised to act as Mehram on your behalf.
With advances in modern technology and use of internet becoming widespread, the Mosque needed to have an online presence. Individuals can now search 24/7 around the clock when it suits them. All individuals on the database will be vetted so you can be rest assured that age profiles, residency etc are truly accurate.
We sincerely hope our Marriage bureau finds you success when searching for your other half and we are here to support you on your journey.
