At IslamicMarriage.com, your safety is important to us. That’s why we created our Five Star Safety Program, a series of initiatives that we believe sets us apart from the many other Muslim dating sites on the market. It’s our goal to keep you as safe as possible during your online dating experience so that you won’t need to worry about anything other than finding that perfect date.
But we also want to let you know that there are some common sense precautions you can take to keep yourself from falling for scams or putting yourself in dangerous situations while you’re meeting Muslim singles on our site. By following these tips, you’ll be able to enjoy a great Muslim dating experience that’s both fun and safe!
The vast majority of accounts on IslamicMarriage.com are operated by real people who just want to meet Muslim singles. But there are accounts that may be operated for other reasons: generally in an attempt to operate a scam or get you to visit other websites – sites that at best may be trying to sell you something, and at worst could be attempts to infect your computer with malware or viruses.
There are a few ways you can look out for these kinds of accounts while you’re browsing our site. If there’s an account filled with gibberish, or even one that just has a large number of spelling and punctuation errors, you should immediately be suspicious. You might also want to be wary of anyone who posts links to off-site content in their profile, or anyone who provides very little information about themselves other than a couple pictures.
Finally, be careful around anyone who asks for something from you right after you start communicating with them. There’s no reason why you should have to send money or provide anything else to another person you meet on our site. If someone claims to have an emergency they need you to help with, it’s almost certain they’re not looking for Muslim dating – they’re looking to scam you.
If you run into any accounts like the ones above, you can prevent them from communicating with you using the account blocking function. This is also useful if you happen to come across someone who you don’t want to communicate with, but who continues to try to message you or talk to you on the site.
Beyond simply blocking other accounts, you can also report suspicious activity to us. This is a key component in the Five Star Safety Program that helps make us one of the safest Muslim dating sites on the internet today. We recommend you report an account to us if anyone is acting abusively towards you, or if you’re concerned an account is acting in a suspicious manner.
When you start to make a connection with someone, it’s tempting to want to share everything about yourself with them. But it’s important to pace yourself. There’s no need to share personal details too early, as our site (and most Muslim dating sites, for that matter) gives you everything you need to get to know someone while still protecting your anonymity.
It’s highly recommended that you spend time messaging potential dates and/or using our instant chat service before you plan a meeting in the real world. Even when you feel like you’re ready to start sharing, be careful how much you let anyone know about you before you’re certain you can trust them. For instance, you may want to let someone know your first name early on to make a better connection, and it’s often a good idea to exchange phone numbers when you’re planning your first meeting so that you can get in touch if plans have to change at the last minute. But there’s no need to share your address with a new date, and there’s never a reason for you to share any identification or financial data with someone on our site.
If you’ve talk to a Muslim woman or man on our site and decided it’s time to have your first in-person date, it can be a very exciting experience. Chances are, it will go well and you’ll enjoy a good time that you’ll be happy to tell friends and family about. But there are still a few things you should do just to ensure your own safety.
First, make sure to meet in a public place. There’s no reason why you should have to travel to someone’s house or anywhere else where you’ll be alone on a first date. This way, you can be certain there will be other people around should anything go wrong, and that you can always leave if you feel uncomfortable. In addition, it’s a good idea to let at least one friend know where you’re going, and to keep your phone on you at all times in case you need to get in touch with someone.
By following the simple tips we’ve listed above, we’re certain that you’ll have a good time meeting Muslim singles, getting to know people, and going on dates. We’re committed to doing our part to ensure you’ll have a good time here, and with your help, we can make sure that our whole community can have a safe and enjoyable experience.
