My Story

A Journey of Faith, Hope, and Love

Assalamu Alaikum,

I’m Baba Ali. Like many of you, my path to finding my spouse wasn’t paved with ease; it was a journey filled with introspection, faith, and ultimately, a profound connection that Allah (SWT) blessed me with.

Embracing Islam, Embracing Challenges

As a convert to Islam, the traditional pathways to marriage that many Muslims take for granted were not available to me. My local Muslim community, while a source of spiritual comfort, lacked structured support for singles like myself seeking a life partner within the fold of our faith.

Venturing into the world of Muslim matrimonial sites, I quickly realized the depth I was seeking was often lost in a sea of superficiality. Despite clearly articulating my values and what I was looking for, the responses overwhelmed me, signaling a journey filled with more questions than answers.

A Leap of Faith Across the Miles

In my search for a companion who truly understood the essence of a life shared in faith and love, I devised a unique approach—dealbreaker questions that went beyond the surface, aiming straight for the heart’s truth. Out of all who responded, one person from London stood out, not just for her answers, but for the sincerity I felt behind each word.

Despite our differing backgrounds and the miles between us, it was clear; she was the one Allah (SWT) had intended for me. After months of heart-to-heart conversations, I embarked on a journey across the world, entrusting my heart to the will of Allah (SWT). Within two weeks, we were united in marriage, a bond that, nearly 19 years later, remains as strong as the day it was forged.

From Personal Revelation to Collective Solution

Witnessing a friend navigate similar challenges, I shared my strategy, leading him to find his partner. It became evident that our experiences were not unique but shared by many Muslims worldwide. This realization led to the birth of HOD in July 2010, a platform not just for meeting but for cultivating deep understanding and meaningful connections, beyond the superficial, in a manner that respects our values and traditions.

HOD: A Reflection of Faith and Purpose

HOD stands as a testament to the journey many Muslims face in finding a spouse. Here, we go beyond mere profiles to offer insights into the character, values, and dreams of those who walk this path with us.

And the journey doesn’t end online.

With over 70 events in 4 countries, and a remarkable success rate, HOD Live stands as a beacon of hope and success in the world of Muslim matchmaking.

With heartfelt dua for your journey,

– Baba Ali
