If there are more, we will arrange but we cannot proceed with just one applicant.“So, we focus only on applicants who wanted to marry for the first time,” Halal Speed chief operations officer Munirah Tunai Shamsidi told when met at the HSD event yesterday. Here at our aim is to organise events where Muslim brothers and sisters can meet each other, solely for the purpose of seeking Muslim Speed Dating or an ideal marriage partner.
In fact, we do not condone the modern dating that is commonly practiced." According to Norhayati, most common dating apps and matchmaking websites often lead to adultery prior to marriage, which is forbidden in Islam.
According to the event founders, clients can shortlist up to three people, however marriage can only be negotiated by one possible partner at a time.
Speaking of the dating app, Tinder, Halal Speed Dating co-founders Zuhri Yuhyi, 34, and Norhayati Ismail, 41, said: "Halal Speed Dating is the anti-Tinder.
“In the application forms, some said they are married and looking for second wife.
Unfortunately, none of the female applicants stated their willingness to meet married men.
So we have created a unique place for you to find love & happiness.
