Q: I want to get married. I heard there was a list you have of sisters in the community that want to also get married. How does the process work? How can I see the list? How can I also pick out from the list? Is there such list that exists?Time: Friday April 8, 2011 at 10:18 pm
A: May you be rewarded for your well intentioned humor. I do understand the need for locals to find spouses as it relates to all types of similarities — including that which relates to geographic convenience.
- Many parents have made mention regarding daughters and sons that are seeking proposals. My experience with our youth is that they feel that they rather find their own mates unless a huge fish (VERY wealthy, VERY beautiful, etc) would come by. Generally our ‘new’ youth are not willing to accept parental recommendations or Imaam listings.
- As for myself, as this matter has come up a few times, do you think i would even make such a list public to you (not even knowing you!) I would like to think that our woman folk do have some value. I am also sure i would be a tad bit more discreet to such a listing! Regardless, i do not feel comfortable playing matchmaker, so here goes your chances with me!
- I agree that a religiously inclined as well as well intentioned person should assist single people attain lifelong partners. I am not going to hold my breath!
Allah Certainly Allah Knows Best.
