Searching For a Husband in Islamic Matrimonial Sites

28-1-2019 | IslamWeb


Are single, Muslim ladies allowed to enter Islamic matrimonial sites to find a suitable hubsand?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

It is permissible for an unmarried Muslim woman to search for a husband and propose herself seeking a righteous husband, as we stated in Fatwa 82471.

However, she must observe Islamic conditions and avoid anything that could lead to temptation.

Moreover, she should look for reliable sites that are run by pious people who monitor the site and make sure it is clear of any evil and temptation.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 84396 and 132000.

Allah knows best.
