I am Maaz Mohiuddin, originally from India. I've been living in Switzerland since 2013.
My wife Michelle Mohiuddin-Bosman is from the Netherlands and was living in Rotterdam when we matched in Feb 2019.
I had been using Muzmatch since Dec 2018 and Michelle was on there since 2017, a few years after she had reverted in 2015. After we matched, Alhamdulillah, we instantly hit it off.
We continued our communication online for three months, and met for the first time after Ramadan 2019. Then, Mashallah, things progressed swiftly. We discussed how to take the next steps and agreed on making it official during my next visit to India.
I visited India in Oct last year, when I introduced her to my parents. As we come from very different cultures, earning my parents' blessing took some convincing and a lot of prayers :D.
Alhamdulillah, we were scheduled to get married in India in Apr 2020. Unfortunately, our plans were disrupted due to COVID.
Once the lockdown was lifted, we were able to do the nikah and our civil wedding in July in a small ceremony in Rotterdam.
We feel truly blessed to be able to spend time with each other in these troubled times.
Thanks to muzmatch for facilitating this. Without this platform, we could have never crossed paths.
