Clientele and Policies

  1. Marriagematchbd caters exclusively to Bengali Muslims. It is not a service of any specific party or sect, such as Jamaat-e-Islam, Hanafi, Salafi, Ahlul Hadith, Tabliq, or Pir's Murid.
  2. The person should stay clear from Shirk or Kufar. They also should not adhere to any Pir-Sufi-Dargah-Magic amulet-Astrology-Rashi-Khanka etc. Marriage is an Islamic covenant between man and woman in the witness of God. Thus, we should avoid those sinful associations.
  3. People who derive their living from illegal or Haram activities are not welcome. Dowry is not acceptable under any circumstances, be it implicit or explicit. Islam condemns the practice of Dowry, and marriagematchbd is entirely intolerant of it.

The ideal of the Deen is that the groom will not get Dowry from the wife. However, he will get married by providing some small dowry to the bride according to one's ability.

 

Fees and functioning

The potential bride and groom pay the organization a fixed fee. Afterward, both party's biodata, Aqeedah, and other personal information are collected. Should the lady show interest, her family is in contact with the groom party, and a meeting is setting up.

Initial registration fees are applicable and also non-refundable. After registration, the team begins work on that matter, and once the marriage has done, they receive a negotiable honorarium. 

Their fees are in four categories: Opal, silver, diamond, and platinum. The organization will not take any responsibility for events between spouses after marriage.

 

Shariah and information security
