How does Muzmatch work?
As soon as you sign up, there’s a fun Tinder-esque feature that shows you a series of photos. From here you can tap ‘X’ to pass on them or the tick to like.
You can see a bit of information about each person too -- from their job and height, to where they’re from and where to live now. You must create your profile to start filtering.
Sign up process
You need to download the app before you do anything, but it’s really simple to do so on your app store. Simply enter your email address and enter the verification code that gets sent to you.
When you’ve signed up, create your profile (choosing the button in the top left corner) and add a nickname. Then enter what you do for a living, your ethnic grouping, sect and add a profile photo. You can make this private or visible -- it’s completely up to you.
Ease of use
The app is super simple to use. There aren’t a whole lot of buttons and features to get to grips with, so it’s very intuitive and takes no time to find your way round.
The text used is large and clear too, which massively helps with making is accessible for everyone.
Chat, messages and notifications
You can only make contact if you match with another member. Instant match makes chatting quick and easy, and the great news is sending messages is free! This gives you the chance to meet more people and hopefully make a connection.
Photos are large and really easy to see. They’re also good quality so you can see a lot about a person from their picture alone. There’s also plenty of information available -- sign up allows you to add quite a lot of detail, which is really important.
You can use a nickname too, which not only shows the personality of someone but gives your real name safe. This is great. Unfortunately there are a few fake profiles about, but Muzmatch work hard to remove them.
Muzmatch mobile app for iPhone & Android
The app is free to download on iOS and Android and is the only way to use the site. On sign up, it uses a fun video to show you how it works. The interface feels very new and modern too; it’s easy to use and super sleek.

Pros and Cons
✓ Pros of Muzmatch
- It’s the perfect way to find someone from the Muslim community, and you’re more likely to find a serious relationship.
- The chaperone feature is great if you’re feeling a bit nervous about making conversation, or need to protect your safety and privacy.
- A great quality app that’s really easy to use.
X Cons of Muzmatch
- You unfortunately don’t have the biggest pool of people to choose from, especially if you’re filtering by location.
- You can only message people you’ve matched with if you’re a free member.
- No actual website, so everything has to be done through the app.
We think Muzmatch is pretty great. It’s such a good way to meet people from the Muslim and Arab community without feeling like you’re breaking any rules. It highlights throughout the app that it’s a Halal dating website, so this should make members feel a lot more comfortable about joining.
The fact that it’s only available as an app is probably a little bit isolating of the older generation who perhaps don’t have access to a smart phone, or don’t quite understand how the app works. This is reflected in the biggest demographic being younger and it does feel a little bit like Tinder. But overall, the app’s quality is really good and it’s genuinely fun to use, so we definitely recommend. 4.1/5.
