For many Muslims who have grown up in the West, dating and getting married can be challenging.
Determined to find love on their own terms, some Muslim Millennials are now turning their backs on family-sanctioned matchmaking, and turning to their smartphones instead.
"We're expected to find Muslim partners and then simultaneously, we're actually prevented from getting to know anyone of the opposite gender until there's a sudden burst or urgency to find a partner." The rise in education rates amongst Muslim women has also decreased the pool of suitable partners.
"We're seeing an increasing number of young Muslims entering into higher education.
Parents who have migrated to Western countries no longer have the same extended family and community connections they once did in their home country, Dr Ahmad said, who researches Muslim marriages and relationships in Britain.
With smaller social networks, parents aren't able to provide their children with suitable matrimonial partners.
They have the ideal of the working wife, but their ideal doesn't match the reality." Women with successful careers - the lawyers, the doctors, the CEOs - are usually overlooked. The marriage issue seems to be the biggest issue that is facing Muslims in terms of their personal lives." The growing difficulty in meeting like-minded Muslims has also led Canadian-born Khalil Jessa to develop 'Salaam Swipe', a mobile dating app for Muslims.
And that is creating a need for suitably educated partners especially from a women's perspective." Gender roles are also evolving within the Western Muslim community, which is creating further complications.
"There's this disparity between expectations – between what women expect and between what men expect.
"The development of all these online dating services and apps are very symptomatic of the way Muslim marriage practices are now emulating Western forms of communication.
"Some people would rather not go to an event because they're afraid of the face to face rejection and so they hide behind the internet.
