In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
A great idea by Baba Ali.
I really don't trust the other 'too good to be true' sites.
Before I get you all confused, I haven't joined up for myself, alhamdulilah I have been married for almost 6 yrs now, however for some people finding the 'one' is not so straight forward as my story.
So what to do? *sings* "Half Our Deen (dot) coom"! *clears throat*.
This profile was set up on behalf of my lovely friend (yes in this case 'friend' does really mean that and not a cover for myself hehe) :)
So, first of all you need to enter a few basics: name, DOB etc.
Next page: write a little about You and a little about what you are looking for, don't forget a picture! This took quite a while finding a non-strange face but not too attractive photo with hijab for her. Subhanallah we got there in the end. However, one teeny tiny thing started to irritate me with the site (as i was the one setting it up, not her). Once I had uploaded the image, I clicked 'next' and it took me back to the beginning. Tried again. Back to the start. Tried again, back to start. S.A.B.R "inshallah it'll work now!". Nope. One more? bingo! Not too sure why this happened but the HOD techies need to get on that one because I was verrrrry close to leaving the site altogether.
NEXT. This/that questions, your answers and what you would want your future husband to answer (helps HOD to do all the matchey matchey).
NEXT...took me back to the start.
I cannot tell you how many times I went through almost 15 questions. Breathe in...and out *exhales* I knew her answers by heart in the end. Seriously, whatever the glitch is, it needs to be sent packing. Not good, as it feels unprofessional but then I thought it is a small company being the the little train that could, and what can i say? I like ummahfilms videos. For the sake of Allah. Repeated all the steps over. Bingo!
Now the payments page.
$5 a month??
Sorry Baba Ali, that is a little misleading in your video. If someone says that to me I'm thinking contracted in for a year and I pay $5pm - cool.
HOWEVER its actually $60 in one payment and just works out at $5pm over 12m. Disappointed, we took the alternative option, $9pm cancel at any time plan.
The payment page went through with no glitches - subhanallah!! (Joke!).
Then I verified the account. Took a few more this/that quizzes on different topics then searched for a match. No matches. I believe this is because you have to wait for a response from the other party or answer their questions on their profile (??).
Looked through the list of eligable bachelors and clicked 'sounds interesting' thus should notify the other party to take a look at my friends profile. Now we have got to wait and see. Inshallah Khair.
I'll let you know if HOD was a success in a later post.
Ma'a salama :)
P.S: the blessings are upon us, she just received an email to say '**** found you interesting'...exciting!
P.P.S don't you love cliff hanger endings??
