We’re the UK’s first private & personalized Muslim matchmaking service. We don’t have online profiles, and we do all the work for you. What’s not to love about that?
We also operate a 100% private service, which means unless you don’t approve a match first, they won’t see your name, photo or video. If you are on the market looking for a spouse, why wouldn’t you join?
Once we find you a match you like and have approved (after Stage 2), you will be charged a fee of £49.99 if you mutually agree to swap contact details and names. This is after you’ve seen each other’s photos and video, and once you’re completely happy to take your introduction to the next step 🙂
Alif and Ain has no online public profiles. So if, say, a friend or family member joins, they won’t be able to find you on our website. Your identity is kept strictly in our database and we don’t share it with anyone.
It’s only when our matchmakers have carefully matched you with someone and you both agree to go to stage 2, do your photos and video appear to someone else. Even at this stage, we don’t reveal your name.
Video is the new photo. It allows you to gage more of your match’s personality. You don’t have to upload a video from the outset. However, if you want to request your match’s photo and video (at Stage 2), you naturally have to upload a video as well. We have a few guidelines you’ll need to follow, as well as ideas to help you out, here.
Here at Alif and Ain, everything is done by hand. We don’t use any robots or algorithms. Instead, we have real & human matchmakers searching to find you the one! Once we’ve found your match, we’ll drop you an email. If you’re curious as to why we haven’t got in touch yet, drop us an email at : info@alifandain and we’ll let you know how the search is going from our end.
At Stage 1 (Anonymous Profile) we share the details of your sign up form excluding your name, surname, photos, video. There are details we never share throughout the whole 3 stage process which are clearly outlined in red in the registration form.
At Stage 2 (Full profile), if you both like each-other’s anonymous profile, you can request to see images and video. This will only be accepted if you both show an interest in each-other.
At Stage 3 (Exchange details) The final stage! If you both like each-other’s full profile, you can request contact details (we only share email addresses)& first name so you can take your interactions offline and continue the journey.
Unfortunately all new members can only sign up during registration week. This helps us regulate our database and also allows us to offer a personalized service as we can focus on new entries (i.e you and your potential spouse!) in a designated slot of time.
You can register your interest here and take a look at our sign up form. We’ll drop you an email when registration week is live!
If we have reason to believe any information you have provided is inaccurate, incorrect or in breach of our terms & conditions, we will unfortunately have to reject your application. Furthermore, if we believe you are in breach of our terms & conditions at any stage, your account will be deleted.
If you both like what you see, you can request contact information and then take the conversation either to email or phone (depending on what has been provided). See our How It Works page for more information.
Everything here at Alif and Ain is done by hand. We never use algorithms! We will search our hardest to find your someone according to your requirements which may take a little time. If you haven’t heard from us in a while, you’re always welcome to drop us a message and we’ll update you on how the search is going.
Occasionally we’ll suggest people who may be slightly different from your requirements. It’s good to be a little open minded sometimes 🙂
At stage 3, email addresses are swapped. We believe email addresses are personal but not too informal or private, like a phone number is. How you’d like to continue discussions post Alif and Ain is your choice.
Please make this clear in your profile. No body likes surprises!
Please remember that it is against the law to have more than one legal wife in the UK. Alif and Ain make no representation as to whether polygamy is legal in the UK or your country of residence. Finding out whether or not you can have more than one wife is your responsibility, and under no circumstance can Alif and Ain be held responsible for this.
Alif and Ain is 100% halal. We believe online match-making is the future for the Muslim marriage market and allows Muslims to engage with the modern, technological world without compromising on traditional and religious values. No communication between the sexes takes place on our platform, but we have attached guidelines on interacting with the opposite sex once you have both approved and decided to take your interactions offline.
Your mahram can create a profile on your behalf, and look through the matches that we send you to your email address. However, your contact details must be attached to your sign up form, and all photos and videos must be of you and not your mahram.
If we don’t find your ideal match straight away, please bear in mind that it may take a little while to refine our search before we find your potential spouse as we don’t use algorithms and everything is done by hand. When you reject a match, you’ll get emailed a link to a feedback form which we will review. This will help us find you someone better next time, InshaAllah.
