No dating, call it ‘matrimonial banquet’ says American Muslims

You and me will definitely tag it as ‘speed dating’ when a boy and girl meet up for a seven minute chit-chat, but for the growing American Muslim community, they prefer to label it in a more respectable term called ‘Matrimonial Banquet’. This particular term came up at the recently organized Muslim conference in North America. With the offshoot of an emerging trend among the Muslim community in America, more and more boys and girls are getting to know each other through a short session meeting called as the speed dating. However, the elders give it a more dignified term. Several seminars were held in this occasion. Primarily one of them titled ‘Dating’ had the crowd rocking in their chairs when the Imam said this: Don’t talk to the Muslim girls, ever, but you are going to marry them. As for the non- Muslim girls, talk to them, but don’t ever bring one home. There were many other brainstorming discussion that were highlighted during the seminar, mainly the problem of young generation of Muslim boys and girls who are trying to get assimilated along with the American way of life.
