Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

There are two aspects to your query

  • Match making service
  • Negative consequences

In principle, the intention to assist single Muslims to find suitable marriage partners is noble. However, setting up a formal matchmaking service could have many negative.

Matchmaking services have grown to be a huge industry on the internet. Much sin and evil is spread through these chat/matchmaking forums.

Shaytaan is with every person and he makes different efforts to lure one into sin. He will decorate the sin in such a manner that a person considers the sin he is involved in to be something lawful hence be deprived from seeking Allah’s forgiveness. Once the contact details of prospective spouse are released, nothing stops them from having a haraam relationship? In this case the service would be aiding in the sin of Zina
