The importance of asking personal questions when looking to get married.


A typical Muslim matrimonial website barely scratches the surface when it comes to details that are vital to showing who you are and what you are looking for in a spouse. The questions generally revolve around superficial topics such as how much you weigh and how tall you are. While this information could be intriguing to a potential suitor the reality is they do not express enough about your goals for life, wants for the future, ideals for raising children, or what a compatible spouse for you would be.

The focus at Half Our Deen is to dig deeper and allow the couples to match up not only based on who they could be attracted to but also who they could lead a fulfilling life with. The personality quizzes help set a baseline for who would seem the most compatible for you but at the end of the day the only way to truly know is to view their profile, read through their information, and respond to any questions they may have posted. Not only do your answers help them learn about you by responding to their questions you are able to infer what is important to them and have the opportunity to counter with your own inquiry.

Answering the personal questions on Half Our Deen, whether the general ones on every profile such as “About Me” and “Who I’m looking for”, or the more detailed questions that others post to their profiles is the best way to increase your chances of finding a match on Half Our Deen. These answers are the first impression that a potential match will have of you. So take the time to think through your answer and insure that it is an honest representation of yourself.

Sharing a candid imagine of who you are online may not be the easiest task. However, the same way you are trusting that others are representing themselves honestly they are trusting that you are doing the same. You want to find a spouse that compliments who you are, not who you think they want you to be. So spend an extra few minutes going over your answers or even have a friend take a look at it and give you feedback in order to insure that you are putting forward a true reflection of who you are.

    AssalamuAlaikum, can I have a suggestion from half our Deen team please?
    I live in UK. Me and my wife living together as our nikah was done but wedding ceremony yet to held. It has delayed for some reasons. Now the problem is, my wife wants to get loan from bank to spend for the wedding ceremony. I told her, first of all interest is Haraam and showed her some Islamic lectures of Nouman Ali Khan and Baba Ali to make her understand how a Muslim wedding should be. She said she understands but it was her dream to have wedding ceremony simple but a bit traditional and has a lots relatives to invite the sum of £10, 000 is not a big amount to use for a wedding nowadays.I wanted to live my life away from Haraam as much as possible. Apparently it’s not. I’m feeling frustrated now. Don’t know how else I can try.

    Sorry, I don’t wanted to give comment here. But I didn’t find any link to ask you.
