Muslim Matrimonials

 

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a losers." (Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 27).

 


Matrimonial Website Links

(ICNA and ISNA  have well developed matrimonial sections which might be right for you.)  If you attend their annual conventions you could also arrange to meet prospectives under Islamic conditions during the convention. This could save one numerous trips across the country. Don't overlook Islamic events and activities you are currently involved in. After all, individuals associated with such events would immediately share common interests, values, etc. as yourself, which is always very helpful in a marriage. (You can network within your own gender/mahrams). Also can check out www.companionships.org.

(Note: You should independently check out all the material on this website, yourself Related options include your family/friends (always a great option), local masjid(s) or even something like naseeb.com , kamranabegevents.com or CAMP events. A general website like eharmony or match.com might also work.

US Citizen planning to marry abroad

Note: If you are a USA citizen marrying someone from abroad check out something like this book. by Ilona Bray. Some points to remember (e.g. you MUST check with an immigration lawyer and also see if it the book is the latest edition since rules are always changing.) However the book will probably serve as a very good complement to discussions with your attorney.

Prenups

USA Prenups: Be aware that currently divorces in the US may result in outcomes vastly different than those envisioned by Islamic family law, along with much acrimony, heartache and very substantial legal fees. It may be wise for both parties to discuss and mutually agree on things before a marriage takes place. Since Islam is fairly new in the USA, there are no easy solutions. There are a few attempts to address this by indiviuals. Unless these "solutions" are tested in court, the "solutions" may result in success or failure. Therefore you MUST consult an attorney. However, you may have a more fruitful discussion with your attorney if you check out something like Edward Haman's book "How to write your own premarital agreement" on amazon. (Check -- it may be dated by the time you read this. If so, see if there are any more recent similiar books on the topic) in addition to talking with your local imam/scholar. What might make sense today may not tomorrow. It is entirely up to you to do your own due diligence and keep up with changing times. Do consult an attorney, regardless of anything else if this is a route you choose to go down. Hopefully, there will be easier options in the future.
