An Enterprising Wakefield businessman has set up a service to help Muslims find their ideal partner.
Adeem Younis, 21, of Warrengate is the brains behind SingleMuslim.co.uk, an Internet introductions service where Muslims can search for their ideal husband wife.
Mr Younis said: "There is a perception about Muslims and arrange marriages, within the Muslim and wider community. In our Asian community the marriage subject is a bit of a taboo subject, but in Islam it is allowed for you to find your own partner with the consent and approval of your parents. It is a concept even Muslims are amazed with."
The site is aimed at busy Muslims who find they don't have time to meet people outside family and immediate social circle.
Mr Younis explained: "There is quite a high percentage of Muslim professional who don't get time to socialise with other people. We don't drink, so pubs and clubs are out of the question, and the way to find people is though family and friends."
If that doesn't work then Mr Younis, who has recently graduate from Leeds University and also runs a web design company, is hoping people will visit the SingleMuslim.co.uk website.
Registering on the SingleMuslim.co.uk site is absolutely free and a small subscription fee is charged to pass and receive messages to male users. The females are able to use all the services free of charge for a limited time due to kind endorsements and the understanding of the difficulties females face when searching for their ideal partner.
The site is not the only Muslim introduction agency, but Mr Younis said he believed it was among the best in the country. It was recently named the UK's leading Muslim matrimonial agency by the Good Muslim Business Guide.
Mr Younis said "So far we have had fantastic feedback, and have had many success stories up and down the country. With promise of more weddings planned I'll certainly have to get my top hat out!"
