Qiran is a large, internationally known marriage site for single Muslims. Members reside all over the world, and not all are Muslim. The site is aimed firmly towards those seeking a marital partner, rather than those seeking other types of relationships.
Qiran advertises on its home page there are over 3 Million registered profiles -- active users (people who visit on a regular basis) are estimated at around 28,000.
A blend of tradition and modern technology, Qiran allows members to establish a relationship with others who are not only like minded but culturally compatible as well. The site is partnered with MSN Arabia and has been featured in several magazines.
The main thing that sets Qiran apart from western dating services is the breadth of cultural, racial and religious settings that you can choose from when searching for a partner. For example, you are able to filter profiles based on cultural background, place of birth, family values, occupation, residence status, Hijab, facial complexion, as well as more basic settings.
Qiran offers several premium features, including SMS, text and voice messaging, instant messaging, with video and live chat to be added in the very near future. This allows members anywhere in the world to see, hear and interact with a potential match.
Qiran claims to be the safest online matrimony site. The service allows members to keep anonymous at all times. This allows for a safe online dating and matchmaking experience. If you are intested in the service you can list yourself or be listed by a family member; however, all profiles must be approved by moderators before full membership will be instated.
Qiran is a suitable choice for anyone of the Muslim faith who is serious about finding their marital partner. Their large number of users and wealth of features specifically geared towards Muslims will open up a wealth of marital prospects beyond traditional methods.
