*Playing – Pure Matrimony Intro*
Assalamu Alaikkum, As a practicing Muslim, I understand your concerns regarding trying to find a pious spouse online and quite frankly I’m not surprised, because trying to find a practicing single Muslim on other halal Matrimonial website, is like trying to find a needle in a haste tag….

Muhammed Mustafa and Br. Muhammed Mustafa as he got married on Pure Matrimony, Alhamdulillah and you know, Maasha Allah, he is actually married to a Sister called Jannathul Firdous which is just the most amazing name, Subahanallah. So, I’m really interested and really excited to talk to the brother about his experiences with Pure Matrimony and how he has found the service and all about his, basically his story of how he found the one insha Allah. So, without further do, I’m gonna introduce you to Br. Mustafa, So, Br.Mustafa, How are you? Assalamu Alaikkum!
Br. Mustafa: Wa Alaikkum Salaam(wrb). Alhamdulillah, I’m doing great! How are you?

Br. Mustafa: Right! Well, as you already told them, that my name is Muhammed Mustafa. I originate from Bangladesh, it’s like my parents are from Bangladesh but I was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates.
Arfa:Okay, Maasha Allah!
Br. Mustafa: And I currently work in a, what, you would call it an e-commerce company, I think, that will be the best word.
Arfa: Oh, Okay, Excellent!
Br. Mustafa: I work as a Graphics Designer. (Sis. Arfa comments Maasha Allah at the background) I’ve recently come to Bangladesh actually I lived my whole life in the United Emirates. But I’ve recently moved here.
Arfa: Oh.. Excellent.. Maasha Allah! You speak fluent Arabic then?
Br. Mustafa: Alhamdulillah!
Arfa: Very lucky, Maasha Allah! That’s one thing that I’d aspire to Insha Allah, for one day, Maasha Allah, So, you know talking about your, basically, your search, so how long had you been searching for a partner prior to joining Pure Matrimony.
Br. Mustafa: Well! Actually, on and off I’ve been searching for over a decade, but, in the last four years were very, you could say, intense like I was really very serious and into it. With my 100% effort, like I was really searching.
Arfa: Subhaanallah! Wow! 10years is a very long time. Like seriously a long time, Maasha Allah. And, how was it and I mean, what was the different things that you tried what sort of try and you know what worked and what didn’t work? Ahem.. you know what was the experience?
Br. Mustafa: Right, actually I tried a couple of websites online. And basically, they are all the same I mean, the same Matrimonial services, they offer the same thing but I don’t know why is that, but, I mean if you go to these websites which I am not going to mention…( Sis. Arfa Says yeah at the background) There were not many profiles to look at, it’s like an empty place.
Arfa: Not the right profiles in UAE?
Br. Mustafa: Yeah. If you read the profile, you will know that this person is actually not serious, may be they are not here with the intention to, you know, to get married.
Arfa: Ok. Yeah. Because, You know that’s really important because you know people join these kind of sites all the time, but, you know, a lot of them is because they are not serious, you know kind of looking to mess around.
Br. Mustafa:That’s right!
Arfa: Right! Ok. Excellent! So, you know what happened after that then?
Br. Mustafa: Well, I ran searched on Google and somehow, but let me go back to the beginning, how I struggles and how I got Pure Matrimony. It was in Ramadan.
Arfa: Oh. Maasha Allah! Last Year?
Br. Mustafa: Yeah! Yes, last year (Sis. Arfa says Alhamdulillah at the background). And the thing was, it was a bit before Ramadan, I was searching for a matrimonial website and Google just helped me out and learned it all in Purematrimony.com and I have browsed the site a little bit to get a slight idea how does it work and everything and the first thing I noticed is, they were following the Sharia’h law.
Arfa: Yeah. Maasha Allah. Yeah. We are very clear on that.
Br. Mustafa: Exactly. So, this is the thing that really pulled me in, like ok, these people, really serious and are following the Sharia’h law. And I mean, I was happy, I was happy like finally I found something that is more reliable, its halal. This is what it is.
Arfa: Alhamdulillah! Alhamdulillah!
Br. Mustafa: And..Yeah. Right after I registered and I was done with the writing my profile and everything, because it was Ramadan I got a month free usage.
Arfa: Ok. Yes. Maasha Allah (chuckles)
Br. Mustafa: Like, I had to pay literally nothing at all. So, I really happy about them, Subhaanallah, I mean, it is I don’t know how people would take this…like, the first question people would ask like……..
