Yasmeen & Omar
My name is Yasmeen and I met my husband Omar on the Salams app (back when it was called Minder). He messaged me and I had forgotten I had downloaded the app, so it took me a few months to respond. When I did, we ended up speaking on the phone and the sparks were instant (mostly because I have a killer sense of humor). He decided to come to visit me the following weekend. Omar had lived in Boston and I was in New Jersey.
The first time we met in October 2017, we went out for lunch, and then he met my parents. In November his family came to meet me and my family and we were engaged! Omar visited me every weekend since the first time he laid eyes on me (he couldn't get enough, haha). Things moved quickly and by December we were married.
We waited a while to have a wedding because I wanted to take my time planning. Alhamdulillah, we had a beautiful wedding in Jamaica with 50 of our closest friends and family. I had never expected to really meet someone through the app, but it's funny how the world works in mysterious ways.It's really challenging to meet someone who shares your values and beliefs, especially now, so I am ALWAYS recommending dating apps to my friends, especially salams. You never know when a swipe and a message will change your life!
P.S. That's sparkling cider in our glasses (:
Get married, find Muslim friends, and network on Salams.
