The time comes when a person has to make a very important life-decision – finding a suitable companion for themselves, or their children. We realize that it can be very challenging to abide by Islamic teachings and marry in North America. Often, the lack of contacts, job, ethnicity, age, family, culture, or proper guidance can pose daunting barriers.
For several years, ICNA Relief Canada has responded to this growing need by helping individuals find their right marriage partners in an Islamic way. We not only provide matrimonial services, but also offer guidance in selecting a spouse, as well as counselling within existing relationships. We are very careful in handling sensitive information and in preserving the confidentiality of our contacts.
Now, however, we have decided to launch our matrimonial services on a larger scale. In the past few months alone, we have connected many families from all over Canada and the success stories are flowing in. The wider Muslim community has appreciated this initiative and members are attending matrimonial events with enthusiasm.
"An integrated team of motivated, respectful and benevolent people, who are being blessed to resolve conjugal concerns of overseas Muslim community, resided in Canada. The most important attribute I observed is the beauty and maturity of commitment that is the driving forces to achieve the goals. Many times, the words of prayer when expressed, lose their significance; therefore I don't want to devalue the spirit of prayer by expressing for the matrimonial coordinators whose strikingly vital role is maintaining the equilibrium in the society. Allah is always there to give you courage, strength and potential to endure the efforts you are striving for."
"During Ramadan, my sister was introduced to ICNA Relief Canada's Matrimonial services. There, I met a volunteer for ICNA Relief Canada, and asked her if anything could be done. Unbelievably, she got my family to meet another family in Ramadan, and on the next day of Eid, I got engaged. Within a month after that, I got married. I have no words to say, except thank you to her and ICNA Relief Canada for their wonderful service."
"Unlike others, the sisters are very cooperative, easy to deal with, take interest and always try to help, Masha-Allah."
"We would like to thank everyone involved, who we understand to be an essential part in making this program as much of a success as it is today, and anyone else who's made the lives of hundreds of Muslim families so much easier. May Allah bless you and your families for your wonderful intentions and extensive efforts."
"You are continually conducting a detailed search to find someone who fulfills our expectations while maintaining a welcoming personality to encourage communication to narrow the search as needed. I especially appreciate that you never pressure us to meet a family before we are comfortable. I look forward to … working with you for my daughter's matrimonial. May Allah bless you for all of your hard work and kind nature and may Allah help us find the best match, Insha’Allah!"
"It's my great pleasure to write about ICNA Relief’s matrimonial services which are governed by … people who deal with courtesy, selflessness, and utter sincere efforts. [The] Muslim Community itself is highly widespread across Canada, and [the] role of ICNA’s coordinators to narrow [the] gap among them is exemplary. My humble prayers … go for everyone who is actively involved in this program. May Allah shower his countless blessings on each individual of ICNA Relief Canada. Ameen."
"Anything which is done selflessly for the sake of well-being and service to our fellow Muslim brother, sisters, sons and daughters deserves Allah's blessings and help. This is what I felt in my very first communication with you and your organization, regarding matrimonial service for my daughter. I was stunned with your selection in matching. I am now proceeding with the proposal and am very hopeful of success, Insha’Allah. You and your organization appeared to me as Allah's blessing. May He bless our Muslim brothers and sisters like you. Let our dream become true and you become a polar star for all Canadian Muslims for the most important post-immigration requirements, like match making for our next generation."
