Boasting an apple blossom adorned ceiling, large crackling fire pit, and a carefully curated French menu, it is no wonder that Clos Maggiore in London is touted as one of the most romantic restaurants in the world. Booking is highly advisable !

Amongst the numerous halal carts in Manhattan, Naya restaurant comes as a breath of fresh air, serving contemporary Lebanese dishes with not a takeaway foil container in sight! Naya is the typical date night in New York establishment: chic, lively, and very, very trendy.

A plane ticket purchase may not be necessary for those of you who live in Toronto when you have Byblos on your doorstep. The food at Byblos can only be described as ‘Middleterranean’; a mix of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, with influences from the Morocco trickling in too, and this is certainly reflected in the exotic ambiance of the place.

Score some serious brownie points by not only booking a trip to India, but also snagging a table at one of the most beautiful settings in the country, Sheesh Mahal. Found at the picturesque Leela Palace in Udaipur, the open air restaurant has stunning views of the lake Pichola as well as serving delicious traditional dishes. A private table can be organised in advance.

Known as a popular romantic spot to pop the question, Singapore’s Halia restaurant is situated in a charming and lush botanic garden. The eclectic menu is a mix of Asian and European influenced dishes, using ingredients grown in their garden.

The halal: All meats are halal.


Combine the city of love with the finest halal French gastronomy, and you’ll find Le Crystal Paris. It is a fairly unassuming place but the intimacy and coziness of Le Crystal, plus the incredibly alluring and insurgent food really makes it one of the most halal and romantic restaurants in the world. Perfect for you foodies out there.

Famous for its postcard-worthy surroundings, The Rock restaurant in Zanzibar can be found amongst the crystal clear sea water and can be accessed via boat (or foot during low tide). It is definitely one to tick off the bucket list together but be warned, the place is extremely small, fitting up to 20 people only, so booking is essential!

You’ve had dining on the water, but how about dining under water at Ithaa in the stunning Conrad Maldives. Having dinner whilst watching the vibrant marine life swim past your table is a date that will certainly take your breaths away (not literally, thanks to the oxygen controlled chamber!)

Romantic is an understatement when it comes to dining under the star-studded sky at Scarabeo camp in the Moroccan desert. You will be served a typical Berber affair of freshly stewed tagines, like the mouth-melting beef with sweet prunes or an incredibly aromatic chicken and lemon tagine, whilst sipping on hot mint tea. Be sure to star gaze by the roaring fire pit afterwards.

The halal: all the meats are halal

Please do double check the halal status of the restaurants above before you visit as the suppliers may change.

South African Match! #muzmatchsuccess

My name is Halima and I'm from Gauteng, South Africa and my husband (Arshad) is from Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa; we are both South African Indians.

He liked my profile on muzmatch on the 8th of April 2018 and on the 9th we started chatting and Alhamdulillah, today we are husband and wife.

We did our Nikah last month (March 9th 2019).

About a month before I joined muzmatch I remember speaking to my mother in the kitchen as we cooked supper and she had full confidence that I'd be getting married soon.

I told her that I felt that maybe I'm just not meant to get married and be happy, taking into consideration that I personally felt like one could never find a decent man whose intention is to make Nikah in this day and age.

My Moulana had recommended that I join Nikah/Muslim match-making groups and muzmatch populated amongst my searches, so I downloaded the app and registered. After a while I had lost hope so I deleted the app from my phone but did not deactivate my profile.

It was a Monday morning, I had woken up to get ready for work,

I checked my phone and I had an email notification from muzmatch which read "Arshad likes you".

I was quite surprised; I looked at his profile and his biography was quite captivating but it seemed so surreal - this was too good to be true.

I used the link in his bio to view his Facebook profile, we had a mutual friend which was my cousin that also resides in Kwa-Zulu Natal, so I felt a bit more assured that this is definitely real considering that I had started to think that this could potentially be a catfish.

We started chatting that very morning and there was an instant click. It felt like we were long lost friends because of how well we understood each other and could complete each others sentences. We had the same interests and the same intention; we could speak for hours on end without running out of things to say.

We had realized that we are most definitely soulmates.

Within 2 weeks he called my parents to ask for my hand in marriage. In July 2018 (21st), I booked a flight to visit him and his mum for the day and after spending time together we knew that this was the right decision and that Allah SWT had created us for each other.

We then saw each other once again in August 2018 (25th - A surprise for my 21st birthday planned by him and my mum); and again in November 2018 when he flew up to attend my younger sister's wedding with his mum, younger sister and brother-in-law.

Slowly the long distance had become difficult, our younger sisters were both already married and settled and we started wondering when would we actually get married. In February this year he decided to relocate to Gauteng and found a temporary job.

His dad visited my parents and they decided to set a Nikah date, Alhamdulillah once the date was set everything fell into place by the will of Allah. He found a job as a PC Engineering lecturer and we were able to find our own place with our parents help and support.

Today I am happily married, living my dream with my husband and I have wonderful in-laws that love me as much as they love Arshad.

The most important quality I wanted in a husband was someone that could take my family as his own and Alhamdulillah I found that in Arshad.

We are now a huge happy family Alhamdulillah.

Jazak'Allah muzmatch! Arshad has found me due to the creation of this wonderful app (He always says that he found me, not the other way around).

I would advise everyone to put their trust and faith in Allah SWT, never give up hope that Allah SWT will send the one who is meant for you when the time is right - for Allah is the greatest of planners. May all the other individuals find their spouses through this app as well Insha'Allah.

Egyptian Romance #muzmatchsuccess

My name is Yasmeen and I found my husband, Taymoor, on muzmatch on the last day of last ramadan. We were both divorced.

The first time we talked on muzmatch was in June and we got married one month later in August 2018. I always wanted to send our story to inspire others who are searching for a good husband and wife.  

We are both Egyptians, from Cairo, we even work & live very near to each others in New Cairo city. I am a digital marketing manager and Taymoor is an IT manager. I am 37 years old and he is 40.  

Influences of the past —
Stories, desire and a vivid imagination
attract people to this place.

I have a daughter who is 12 years old, and I was searching for a real Muslim man who would be a good husband and father. Finally I found Taymoor, who is a good man and a good Muslim, he is very kind.

I am telling my friends that I found someone who really looks like me from the inside.  He was divorced and also has a kid, who is 5 years old. When we first chatted on muzmatch we spoke for over 6 hours, he was surprised much we got on, he even thought that this was a prank!

I couldn't believe that I finally found the man I was looking for. The first time we met, was after Eid al futr, in the House of Cocoa, as Taymoor knew that I loved chocolate. We talked about ourselves for over six hours, I did not want to leave and neither did he.

After we met I told my family and friends, and he did too. He and his family visited us and we got married in only two months, I never imagined that I would find my soulmate and marry him that fast.

I always wanted to find a man to trust and love, after being a single mom for years, I found out that my dream man was hard to find, but alhamdullah I found him on your app.  

Alhamdullah, we are very happy together, my daughter lives with us and his son visits us on the weekends. You cannot imagine how much I am now recommending muzmatch to all my friends.

It didn't even take me long to find my husband. I used the app for almost one month or less.

I am so happy alhamdullah now that I married a real muslim I always wanted.

Close Call #muzmatchsuccess

My name is Sara and I just wanted to thank muzmatch and let you know that I finally got engaged on 24th December 2018 and found my Fiance - Ghazunfar on the App.  

We are really happy Alhamdulilah and just wanted to thank you for creating a platform for Muslims to find a suitable match for marriage!    

I believe it's a real blessing because initially we matched but we didn't talk as he hadn't read my messages and was not appearing online. After around 4 weeks, I unmatched however after some weeks I logged in and I came across his profile again. After some giving it some thought I decided to rematch and give it a try again.

The next day he replied to me and the is history.  Its been a almost a year since we matched on Muzmatch and we have set the Nikkah date which will be 1st March 2019 in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.  

Our families are very happy and we are looking forward to entering into the blessed union of marriage Insha'Allah. We just wanted to say keep up the good work, may Allah bless you and request that you keep us in prayers.  

One last thing to everyone using the  muzmatch App - please do not give up, there is someone out there for us all!
