At Halal Speed Dating, all matchmaking sessions begin with a talk on marriage in Islam.
Women must be accompanied to the event by a chaperone - typically a parent - and after the session, a man matched with an interested woman has to call the woman's father first for his permission to proceed.
More importantly, it avoids fitnah (slander), heartbreak, premarital pregnancy, premarital sex, abandoned babies and all 50 Shades of Haram."This is something co-founders Munirah Tunai and her husband Zuhri Yuhyi believe in, having met using a matchmaking platform themselves before getting married after five months of chaperoned interaction."In Islam, yes, of course you have to involve the father actually, because the father is the lady’s guardian," Munirah tells Channel News Asia.
"So if a guy wants to get married to a lady, it's after receiving the permission of the father.
So far, Halal Speed Dating has had three events, resulting in about 20 couples who are now seriously discussing marriage.
The demand is there for more events, but there is one problem."Our challenge is to find men actually because out of that 5,700 people who registered, basically just one-third of them are men," Munirah laments.
Afterwards, the organisers check for matches - which woman indicated interest in men who were interested in them and vice versa - but that is where the similarities to conventional speed dating end.So that's why we'd like to get the father involved as early as possible."About 5,700 people have signed up for Halal Speed Dating, typically working professionals aged between 25 to 35 who are too busy to meet people the "normal" way.The long-term goal for participants is marriage and that is a condition applicants must agree to at registration."Of course, the ladies will always ask us: 'Why don't you organise more, bigger events?KUALA LUMPUR: Imagine going on a first date with someone and having your parents beside you to give you advice.
That is what happens at Halal Speed Dating, a matchmaking service founded in 2015 in Muslim-majority Malaysia.
