In the show, Rayyan tries to explain that dating in Islam is like window shopping where the woman may know that a guy is good for her just by observing him or asking a few questions.
But that’s what dating is isn’t it? Getting to know the other person via an interview over dinner. It just might be at the girl’s parents place over coffee with the parents answering the questions. Usually, the whole family is involved and they are called over for tea where they discuss the children’s potential as a couple. The children are also given the opportunity to talk to each other in private.

Do you have any stories from your ‘family’ dating experience?
