Thoughts??

Members of different faiths search for the perfect partner, as Muslim singletons Zubair, Naila and Dimpy try to overcome being relationship novices and find 'the one'.

wsalam,

K finally watched this!! Very interesting actually. But I can see why the three aren't married...




*SPOILERS*








1. Zubair - Totally understand his problem about being chill and stuff but because he has a beard ppl make assumptions, like he's extremely strict/no fun. Same major problem my whole life. Hijab to many means extremely strict and religious (and a doormat) so if you aren't ppl can't understand it! He seemed like a nice guy. But I really think it's ridiculous he's looking for a wife in the UK when he is moving to Pakistan in a few weeks. I mean seriously?? Go look in Pak if that's where you want to live forever.


2. Naila - Kinda young and just going with whatever her mother wants. Is this really a good idea? I think parents should help with introductions and give good advice, but once they start dictating who their kids should marry it's messed up. We really don't find out why she turned the guy down.


3. Dimpy- Turned down 60+ guys!! Seriously?? That's just crazy. I think she definitely has commitment issues all tied up with her father dying issues. Her rishta search was kind of interesting.  I thought it was funny how they found her rishta's pics on facebook with drinks in hand and arms around girls skimpily dressed. Can totally understand why she turned that one down! But 60+??? At the end after Hajj she says she's ready to compromise but I really don't think she is. She believes the 'pakistani doctor' is the cream of the crop and that's what she wants for herself (cuz she is one) and she feels if she doesn't marry one -- she's compromised herself and her father's dreams for her. So until she works out that whole thing... I dunno...


P.S. - I thought American Muslims had issues Tongue  We are definitely wayyyy more laid back about these things...

My mum asked me if I watched this programme - I knew that the girl Dimpy would be a major talking point!  Turning down 60+ guys seems just... unreal!  If you turn down that many guys, I think there might be a problem with the girl rather than 60 guys not being good enough! 

She seems to have high expectations and on one level, I can't blame her for that.  I think her parents have raised her to believe she is the best thing since sliced bread because being a doctor, she has all the prestige and respect one could ask for, so her hubby would need to be her equal otherwise she's 'marrying down'.  However, there are also plenty of guy doctors who have also been raised to expect the best too so there's lots of ego floating around. 

I hope she has changed for the better and lets go of the daddy's little princess issues.

Yup.  I hear ya on that score.  I kinda want to say 'I'm fun! I'm not a complete square, honest! I've done shady stuff too!' but that wouldn't really be appropriate, would it?

I think they chose very extreme examples to be honest.


Dude with beard wasn't getting any positive feedback not because of his beard but due to the fact he was moving to Pakistan forever, otherwise I think that girl he met was interested, just not particularly enamoured with the thought of leaving everything behind and moving to Pakistan with him.

The GP well she was still grieving over the loss of her dad and I reckon she had issues about giving up her freedom and independance and being tied down, going by the way her brother behaved she didn't have much of a positive role model for a man of her generation. Also the examples of rishta's that she was getting were completely unsuitable.

The young girl, well she'd just started out in her search and her mothers reasons were valid, she herself wasn't terribly attached to the rishta she did get.

The hindu one was very very funny;
The guy well he was just so immature and full of himself

That girl who got married was so cute and her mum was so adorable.

The other girl well she was clearly hung up on that 'friend' they'll prolly end up together or she'll realise  a some point he isn't committing......

I hope they all end up with loving spouses worthy of them. And live happily ever after.



Wassalaam

Inshaallah! they're all good ppl... even the hindu playa' guy... playah

I thought that the hindu girl liked the friend ALOT but he was clearly only thinking of her as a friend (how common is that!). She needs to get that book "He's just not that into you", otherwise she's going to waste a lot of time with him imo.

Update: The video is embedded now.

Can't find the other one they showed a few years ago following a Mosque matrimonial service and it's success/fails...

I was browsing through some videos and I found that the girl whom Zubair met is a presenter at Islam Channel Tongue

Wow I think you're right that is her!!! I wonder what happened to to them and if they ever got married since the show? They need to do a follow up!

PS Watching the Jewish one now... very interesting.

I find the beardi guy a bit strange. He wants to move the Pakistan, and can't find a wife here to move there?

Am I the only one who is thinking, why doesn't he marry one from there then?

Well his red passport is all he needs to get as many wives as he wants there.

He should marry a Pattan or someone from Kashmir, because they are really pretty.
And they are also really poor, so will agree to marry him.
