A man has posted ads on billboards in London and Birmingham to find a wife to save himself from an arranged marriage.
You would think you have seen everything happen in this digital era, but then something pops up on your feed and surprises you. This is one of those instances, where a 29-year-old Muhammad Malik, in pursuit of love, is seen on billboards with a purple background that says, “Save me from an arranged marriage,” alongside a website link that has detailed information about what Malik is looking for.
Locally, I have seen ads appear in newspapers with long lists of requirements, sometimes even absurd ones. Often, people mock these ads on social media because it isn’t possible to find so many qualities in a single person. However, this ad is different. Malik has put himself on the billboard so women can easily contact him if they think he is suitable for them.
Malik writes on his website that he isn’t against arranged marriage. He says, “I think arranged marriages have a place and tradition in many Islamic cultures. Many studies show that arranged marriages have many advantages.” However, he “just want to try and find someone on my own first.”
On the website, Malik introduces himself. He says, “I’m a 29-year-old Muslim guy living in London. I’m blessed because I can combine my passions for Islam and entrepreneurship to do for a living. I love food, good bants, and I know it sounds cheesy – but learning more about my own faith. “

He explains his clever move on his website, “I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there. I had to get a billboard to get seen!”
He then puts out some conditions, ” My ideal partner would be a Muslim woman in her 20s, who’s striving to better her deen. I’m open to any ethnicity, but I’ve got a loud Punjabi family – so you’d need to keep with the bants. Always personality and faith over anything else! P.S I’m an only child and look after my mom and dad. If this is a deal-breaker, I don’t think it’ll work out.”
There are many more details on his website that you can check out. We hope Malik finds someone and saves himself from an arranged marriage.
