Urgent need to help challenges searching rishtas in the Jamaat
To all AMJ Ameers worldwide,
In our Jamaat we are bought up to respect Islamic values, and to live our lives following the guidance of the Holy Quran. Our parents have granted us a lot of flexibility and support in achieving a good education and in return, they have asked to live each day knowing that their respect lies in our hands and in our actions.
In doing so we go through university staying away from intimate relations with those of the opposite gender, and instead, we have focused ourselves on pursuing our education endeavors while maintaining a close relationship with Khilafat.
When it comes to the issue of marriage, we have left this to our elders but there are now hundreds of us who are continuing to struggle finding marriage partners. Many individuals feel they cannot find someone suitable.
So what options do we have available when marrying outside the Jamaat is not an option? To be honest, while it is true that Rishta Nata departments do exist registration on these websites is low in numbers.
So why this petition?
This is a humble request to the Ameers of all countries worldwide to please please please put some attention on this serious issue. We implore you to please take the time to listen to the issues of young Jamaat members. There are hundreds if not thousands of us girls and boys who are struggling to get married.
We need you to start brainstorming and to help find solutions to address these challenges. As a Jamaat we need to stop pushing the responsibility of marriage on to just the parents and we need to make it more accessible for young adults and their families within the Jamaat to find future life partners.
We need to find a new solution as a Jamaat to ease this struggle. This could be through the use of a new technology instead of getting people to sign up to a database online. We can develop ways to get people connected more easily and perhaps even a great app just for Jamaat members.
Insha'Allah hopefully the more people that will sign the more chances our leaders will get the message.
Obedient servants of Khilafat
