Thanks to the thoughtful suggestion of Dr. Hameed, I created a message forum for the purpose of matchmaking. The link to the forum is below. Disclaimer: FHWS provides an opportunity for its visitors to advertise for marriage feesabillah and to please Allah but because I can’t vouch for anyone’s character whom I don’t know personally, you agree by participating in this venture to absolve me of any responsibility should proposals, engagements and marriages not succeed. This is a marriage matchmaking resource and FHWS will not entertain any posts soliciting girlfriends or boyfriends. As always, please fear Allah and respect others. May Allah grant us all the best in this world and the next ameen. Thank you for understanding.

A Few Points To Make Regarding The Matchmaking Forum
Updated 13 September 2015
The matchmaking forum is the only way that I can offer assistance when it comes to the subject of searching for a spouse. It is not meant to be “active” as it is not a social media platform (if that was the case then I would have set it up on Google+ or Yahoo Groups). It is there for whoever needs it for as long as anyone contributes to it. Mostly brothers and sisters contact me in private and I can only suggest that they add their details to the forum. So the number of people posting there does not reflect who is actually interested. Understandably, it is probably because they are too private to share their details in public. But I can do nothing with private requests because I don’t want to be that closely involved in the process. The concerned parties must do the follow up queries as well as investigations as I can never vouch for anyone that I have never met nor recommend them for marriage unless I know them personally. I would suggest that when entering your particulars, you provide an email address that you do not mind putting out in the blogosphere for candidates to contact you. You can simply make one up for this purpose. If you are a sister, let your mahram or wakeel post his email address. Do NOT use your real name on the forum. Use a nickname or an alias and provide your real name in a reply to an email when you feel comfortable enough to do so. Finally, I have made the matchmaking forum as private as possible with a password and moderation of posts to ensure no players or spammers get through. However, in this day and age, do not expect much privacy on the internet. If you are that worried about privacy, it is better to conduct your matchmaking affairs in person, in the real world. Thank you and best wishes in your marriage pursuits,
