In an effort to tackle the increasing complexities in Muslim matrimonial matters, London-based social entrepreneur Hajji Laird Mostafa has launched Muslim Marriage Services (MMS), leveraging the cutting-edge Digital ID technology used by the government of Jersey and UK cinemas. “Worldwide, there are two billion Muslims, and around 300-400 million are single and keen to marry. We want to make it easier for them,” Mostafa explains, addressing a critical need in the global Muslim community.
The platform confronts universal challenges like online fraud, which, coupled with a 42% divorce rate for Muslims in the UK and 31% amongst North American Muslim communities, creates a stigmatising burden. MMS aims to provide a secure and dignified avenue for Muslims seeking a second chance at marriage after divorce.
Targeting students and young professionals, MMS offers a secure online community where trust and digital security are paramount. “We are here to help Muslims find love built on trust and digital security. That’s why MMS is the only matrimonial service on the planet to use Extended Validation Site Security Certification,” Mostafa asserts, highlighting the platform’s unique security features.
MMS incorporates features like DBS certificate management, international equivalent documents for background checks, and chaperone and guardian validation. The platform ensures safeguarding, discreet monitoring, and secure photo and message exchanges.
Currently operational in the UK, North America, Europe, and the Middle East, MMS dedicates 50% of its profits to aiding underprivileged global communities. Focusing on fostering genuine matrimonial connections, MMS plans to host live events and has partnered with Insightology (UK) to offer premium members emotional support in their marital journey.
