The latest Half Our Deen Offline event was held a couple weeks ago in Santa Clara, California, on September 29th. By the grace of Allah (swt) it was a smashing success! We could not be more proud of the team who worked tirelessly to ensure that things went smoothly. But most of all we are so very excited for all those who attended and who may have found their other halves.
Alhamdulilah, we had a packed house with 74 attendees. Everyone had a great time and at the end of the afternoon 84% of those who attended expressed interest in at least 1 person and 20 matches were made! All the effort that is put into Half Our Deen is in hopes of great outcomes like these. But you don’t have to take our word for it, here are what some of the attendees had to say:
“Wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the organizers for putting together such a unique and tailored event mA.” – Brother, 32
“I appreciate how organized this has been- pleasantly unusual for a Muslim-run event.”- Sister, 27
“First and foremost I would like to thank you for putting on an amazing HOD event. I felt as if it really worked for me. May Allah (SWT) reward the team for their hard work” -Sister, 28
“Hello HOD team – hope all is well on your end =)
First I wanted to just write and commend HOD for the event held in Santa Clara on 9/29. I have never attended a “matchmaking” event and probably will not want to attend another one – unless it’s being hosted by HOD. AH you guys have set the bar so high…by being exclusive, productive, and also respecting the privacy of the people attending. Its so funny you would never think that this process of “finding someone” would be so difficult but your team made it fun, comfortable, and humorous as well – which relaxed everyone. I was very nervous going in – but AH had a very good time and enjoyed interacting with everyone =)” -Sister, 35
“Jazak Allah Khair for hosting the event and working so hard to help us meet our other halves.” -Sister, 27
“ It was a really well-arranged event. This is the very first time I attended an event like this and was pleasantly surprised at the setup” -Brother, 30
The great news is we are working to bring our Offline events to many cities across the globe as possible. InshaAllah our next Half Our Deen Offline event will be in Tampa Bay, Florida on November 17th. The following weekend we will be back in California with an event on the 25th in Long Beach before jetting to Toronto, Canada in December.
