I am now engaged to a man that I met through this service.


Salaam All,

Many Thanks for your help.

Assalamu'Alaikum Brother,

I know that you have not heard from me in a while, and you may not remember who I am. I am the brother who wrote to you about 5 month's ago about racism. Fist off, I pray that you are doing well, and that you stay in the hospital will not be a long one.

Brother, I just wanted to let you know that because of you web site, Allah has blessed me with my future wife. Insha'Allah, I will be heading to Jeddah Saudi Arabia on the 16th of August, and I will be getting married on the 19th. I will also perform Umrah. Insha'Allah, I will send pictures when I return. Brother, it is a blessing that two people who think so much alike have been brought together by the grace of Allah. Upon my return I will contact you and send pictures to add to your web site. Brother take care of yourself, and I pray that everything goes well with you.

Dear Zawaj,

Thanx for the very useful info on marriage, alhamdulillah. It makes me appreciate the vast richness of the cultures of Muslims the world over and inshaALlah, very encouraging as well :)

I browsed through the page on Malay wedding customs and found that there are
some mistakes in it. However, a large portion of the text is what I found in the Malay culture, except for one point. I elaborated on them just for your info.

The mas kahwin, is actually the dowry NOT the hantaran. The dowry is set at a fixed rate to avoid high dowry prices being the norm. Giving the dowry is Islam, but the hantaran is culture.

The hantaran is the money given by the groom and is an agreed amount by both
sides of the family. But usually, it's the bride's family that would state the amount. Eventhough the mas kahwin (dowry) is fixed, there is an increasing trend for the hantaran. The hantaran is now about 5-8 thousand Singapore dollars, for most people, but it can come up to ten, twelve thousand, depending on the family. The money is actually for the couple themselves, where they use it to buy furniture (bed set etc) and pay a part of the walimah or others....

Jazakallah Wassalam,

As salaam aleikum brother Yousef.

I love your column "Egyptian Tales." We lived in Alexandria, Egypt for a year and a half, & everytime I read your article I can relate to it very well. And yes I have travelled on the train that runs between Alex & Cairo, & remember the guy selling tea & coffee.

Keep it up. Look forward to more reading on Egypt. Ma Salama

Salamat Youssuf,

I read your short articles and enjoyed them very much. Keep up the nice


Dear sister Bilqis Salamulikum.

My name is Ghulam Qader, I am 21 years old and I am from Afghanistan. I came across your column. I really like it. You know Allah is protecting Islam not matter what. I am totally suprised by your knowledge. Allah has given you a very powerful knowledge which not only is good for our muslim brothers and sisters but for the entire world as well.

Even though, some people say Islam is not safe in America but when we happen to meet people like, we feel joy and releif because Allah is protecting this religion under any circumstances. Your readings really made me happier and I pray to Allah to give you whatever you have asked for.


After searching the Internet furiously for information about Malaysian weddings, I finally found your website with loads of information! Thank you for putting it out there!

Assalamualaikum, Dearest Bilqis,

My name is Wizan from Malaysia.

My Christian friend ask me about Marriage In Islam. I am glad I found your site using my local search engine Great resources! Not just for my friend but for myself! Alhamdulillah!

I am proud of what you are doing.

Thank You

Assalaamu alaikum:

Just had to write and let you know how much I enjoy your articles. I'm an American revert to Islam for nearly 20 years and have lived in Egypt for a time. I try to visit as often as possible. I miss Egypt so much and often search for articles such as these to ease the longing---it's like a cyber trip home.

Keep up the good job! And as Bob Hope (probably before your time---lol) used to sing..."thanks for the memories".

Assalamu alaikum brothers and sisters who are working on this wonderful website.

I thank you all on behalf of my self and on behalf of my father who has been looking for a good muslimah to share his life with after my mother died long time ago and finally he found the lady of his dreams through, and we owe it all to Allah (swt) and then to you.

May allah bless you all. Walassalm Um Omar

Assalamu'alaikum Dear Wael, Alhamdulillah I have found my future husband through this advertisement. May Allah SWT bless you with all your service. Amin. Please keep the service going... insyaAllah there will be another couple who find their spouse through this service. I found that people who respond my adv, are InsyaAllah a good Moslems. Again thank you.. Eva F.

May Allah Bless you all and reward you all for your selfless effort and work by which many have been benefitted. I certainly have alhamdulillah and am happily married now. Please hence remove my advert from you site.

I would wish to say that Allah is the Protector and Preserver of all. When anyone wishes to use a site such as this either to place an advert or to find a wife/husband... one should purify ones intention and know that he/she is only doing so for the sake of worshipping Allah better and hence a better life in this life and hereafter. Secondly, one should be very much aware of the decorum that should be maintained between a prospective brother/sister. One should remember Allah at all points in time and always do istikhara. Finally, one should never be disappointed in any Decision that is made... keeping in mind that the best of Deciders is Allah.

With more and more of us striving towards islam and in this day and age where knowledge is scarce and the demarcation of culture and religion is weak... it is very difficult for one to find a pious husband/wife. Here is where sites like this is a blessing for a believer. Inshallah.

May Allah Help us all and Guide all mankind towards Him. May He at all points keep our intentions, actions, interactions and words pure. May He have mercy on all.


I hope my email gets to you in state of emaan and health.

I wanted to thank you for you great work may Allah reward you the best.
I'm the sister that couple months ago you gave her an email of one of the
brothers in you page. Alhamdulilaah I got back from Syria and we are now
married. Can you please remove his ad now?

Jazaakah laah khayran.

your sister in Islam
