Question for the male consultants on Muzz/Salaams/other dating apps out there — would you consider a SO in the same field as you? Why or why not?

Also, key dealbreakers when swiping?

Absolutely,why not? Definitely not a deal breaker.

My deal breakers:
- Someone who is uncommunicative.
- inability to continue a conversation, if it stops.
- Someone who on either side of the spectrum (too conservative too liberal).
- no job/education.
- no ambition.
- no pictures or lack thereof.
- no bio or lack thereof.
- wanting ME to move, bc all her family is around. You know bc my family means zero. If I have to move, so you do. Let's do it together.
- not knowing who you are fundamentally
- not knowing or have give zero thought about what makes YOU happy.

TLDR: I'm super progressive and have zero time for people who are unable to communicate or who don't know themselves. I've done the work on myself, my personal relationship, family, relationship with the Divine, etc...come having done some of it too. I don't need someone perfect, but come with some of the inner work done.


I have read this 5 times now - and you have nailed it !!!

Female and I filter out consultants and lawyers, two professions that I tend to not get along with 😂


Oh come on so not fair - so so not fair

Yeah, why not.
It’s a plus because they understand the rigors and qualms of our specific industry and job.

Key dealbreakers for me:
- no job/degree and/or mention of hobbies
- way more religious than me
- lack of full set of photos
- no bio or lack of effort in the prompt responses
- any problematic rhetoric


On the apps, it lets you know how “religious” you are and choose a category.

Also, it’s hard to define but you’ll see some profiles and be like “yup, they’re way too religious for me”.

I also have a v different approach and view on religion than most people (which I don’t want to get into here bc I can type pages about it).

Im with a consultant right now, first time ever so we’ll see if it works out. It’s also my first time with someone in a “corporate” job, all the earlier people were in “defined” professions - doctors, teachers etc. We certainly have a lot more to laugh and vent about, I’ve also used analogies from work to explain things that others probably wouldn’t understand. So far it’s been easier to relate to each other. Time will tell how far it goes.


Of course! More in common means more things to connect and talk about.

Today’s Beautiful Hadith is about Practicing Charity
Narrated `Aisha (RA): Some of the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand." So they started measuring their hands with a stick and Sauda's hand turned out to be the longest. (When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of `Umar), we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity

Assalamualaikum everyone I am in a family predicament and would like to hear your thoughts:

My father is emotionally abusive to my mother. Always has been since I was a child. My mother vets to me about how he treats her. I see it all the time. With the smallest of things he will yell at her, belittle her and demean her often for no reason. My mother has severe anxiety and depression because of it. Ever since I've been an adult I've been telling him to stop this treatment...(cont in comments)


Curious do you guys celebrate Christmas, other holidays? And not looking for religious bashing. Just curious for eg. I am big on Christmas/ holiday spirit. I get a tree, lighting, gifts, sweaters. But similarly I have family who get very mad at wishing Merry Christmas. I am curious where you guy’s heads are at. Any cultural differences between eg black vs Arab vs south Asian Muslims etc.


My dad is acting very arrogant and egotistical in any conversations with my (iA wife’s) parents and it’s off putting for my mom and i as well as their dad. They are now unsure as how can they give their daughter to a family that is already acting up. What do i do to ease them? I don’t live w my parents or even in the same state. I’ve seen how my dad acts and I’ve learned a lot from his behavior (like good things from his good behavior, and what not to do from his bad behavior). Thoughts? 25M


Something to brighten your day 🤗

I’m not super religious but the tragedy at Texas yesterday made me realize how much we’re failing little kids. We’ll all have to answer for that one day. Just wish there was some accountability and strict gun laws in the US but I’m dreaming.
