Multiple accounts are not allowed.

Messaging Others

It is important how you write to the people you speak to and how you portray yourself. Here are a few points when writing:

  • Reflect on what you are writing, do not rush and it will help give a positive impression to the other person
  • Try to send individual messages to each person rather than copy and paste the same message to many people
  • It is important to remember: rude, offensive, sexist and racist language will not be tolerated.

Communication

It is important to be clear and honest when speaking to other members. You are free to use the different options on the Deen Marriage site and do what you are comfortable with e.g. exchanging photos or having a live chat.

Try to consider how your comments might be received and taken by the person reading it. They do not know you well enough and misunderstandings may occur, especially if you are trying to joke with them. For example they may be offended if you start to joke about their photo and what they are wearing.

We do not allow the following:

  • Foul and abusive language, threats, harassment or stalking
  • Explicit or implicit sexual talk or innuendos – this is against our ethos
  • Appeals for money/gifts or the offer of money/ gifts
  • Fake accounts, deceptions, manipulation, emotional blackmail or coercive behaviours
  • Promotion or solicitation of other businesses/ services

Exchanging Information

It can be exciting speaking to someone new, however do not share your personal details straight away or ask them for their details. Be careful who you share your intimate details with and think to yourself, would you share this information with them in person.

First Meeting

You are ready to meet the person you have been talking to! Here are some advice:

  • Meet them in a public place e.g. coffee shop or restaurant
  • Take family members or a trusted relative with you. Your Mahram is the best person.
  • If you want to talk privately, find a place quiet but a place where you are still visible to your family/ Mahram in case anything happens
  • Be polite and offer to pay at least 50% for the drinks or meal. Do not give the person you are meeting cash directly, but pay money at the counter of the coffee shop/ restaurant.

Ending Communication

It is natural that you may not want to continue talking with a member you are messaging. Kindly let them know. Be polite and respectful. If you do receive a message like this, respect their decision and do not communicate with them any further.
