Podcast: Like Tinder, But Safer: Troubleshooting Arranged Muslim Marriages | Newaz Ahmed


The biodatas that we send and receive are inherently superficial. We’re not given much time to make a decision on that limited information, and so the result is the same sort of superficiality, an un-Islamic swipe based on attractiveness alone.

    I enjoyed listening to Newaz’s story about arranged muslim marriage. I would like to share my perspective, as the mother whose all 3 children opt for arranged marriage.

    Thank you.
