Share Article

Something quite interesting is currently occurring in the Muslim community across the UK; young British Muslims are attending modern speed dating events and singles parties in an attempt to meet their partners, often with the blessing and encouragement of their parents! This shift in attitude towards dating by both this 2nd generation demographic and their parents is a sweeping departure from the way that British Muslims have traditionally met their spouses.

Arranged marriages may be a thing of the past for most 2nd generation Muslims in the UK; nevertheless, many will still undergo a complicated process whereby extended family networks will arrange meetings. This is often difficult for the two suitors as this type of meeting comes with a greater degree of pressure with family pride often at stake. In addition to this there is the awkwardness of meeting someone and attempting to get to know them with parents seated just yards away

AsianD8events are the UK’s largest, longest running Asian singles events organisers and specialise in Asian singles parties. The organisation has managed to successfully strike a chord with UK Asian singles across the UK with their fun, innovative and successful introductory methods. Director of Marketing, Vikram Kakaria is not surprised at how the Muslim community have embraced AsianD8events;

“The concept of Asian singles parties took off very quickly with the Muslim market because marriage is a fundamental part of the culture. Traditional ways of meeting partners aren’t always so successful, so AsianD8events offers an informal and relaxed alternative. Muslim singles get the chance to meet like minded, modern and attractive people at our events.Muslim singles events across the UK have now become very popular, to the extent that tickets get sold out weeks in advance!”
The Muslim speed dating London events are taking place almost every 6 weeks and attract up to 50 professional Muslim singles per event. The concept involves a 3 minute introduction with all attendees, and any members that found a connection are matched up the next day. An email is sent informing attendees of matches and they can then get in touch directly. The Muslim speed dating Birmingham and Muslim speed dating Manchester events have also become as popular as the London events in recent years. Zara Hussain from Birmingham is a keen supporter of the speed dating method having attended events in the past; “The speed dating concept is brilliant. At first it can be slightly overwhelming meeting so many people but it’s great fun and you get the chance to meet some very nice people.”

So maybe speed dating events will become a part of Muslim culture and integrated in society as the normal way of meeting a life partner? There are thousands Muslim and Asian attendees who are a testament to its success, and it is more in sync with the mix of Eastern and Western values modern Muslims like to embrace
