When it comes to speed dating, Islam is one of the religions that not most people around the world believed but they certainly are living in a way based on what they used to and on what they believe to be effective for them to survive as a community and as a Muslim. We might not understand a lot of their culture because we do not belong to their community. That being said, in this article, we will discover if there is such a thing as Muslim speed dating and how it happens if there is.
I am not saying that I can successfully explain a Muslim’s way of dating but I am just trying to look at that aspect based on research and on what I know for us to better understand the Islam as a religion. The most common belief that I am aware of is that the Muslims’ traditional way of dating is the sole responsibility of the parents where they are the ones who will look for partners for their children. That arranged marriage is done between Muslims only through a conversation between parents. That is the traditional way, where it has affected the dating scenario in the present. This is where speed dating comes in.
Speed dating is a new approach in finding marriage partners the faster way. This way only involves Muslims who share similar faith and culture that are organized in a way like the usual speed dating scenario. Being able to focus on a certain faith or religion helps dating men and women to find the partner that they are looking for in a faster way and also for them to have an instant common interests. In addition, most of the people who are doing this type of speed dating have the same goal and that is marriage. That means that they are really serious in dating someone even if it is fast paced like speed dating.
Speed dating for Muslims should also abide to the Muslim’s faith for dating men and women to be comfortable with each other. One belief is that men have the privilege to marry more than one woman just as long as they can afford to support them all.
Muslim speed dating is a good way for Muslims to match themselves to the right person who will love them. Basically, speed dating is a way for them to control and be independent on how their love lives should be not being controlled on what their parents think.
