Summary
Americans interested in marrying generally go out on dates and move from relationship to relationship until they find the right fit. But how do Americans of the Muslim faith find mates when their culture prohibits dating? This lively film shows us devout American Muslim young people pursuing love and marriage, searching for alternatives to arranged marriages common to traditional Muslim culture. Mohammad and Ferdaus moved from emails and phone calls to family involvement, and then on to the signing of the Nikah, an Islamic marriage contract. Zahra, a law student whose parents are from India, will consisder dating only those men who can handle the ambitious career goals she describes online. She leaves her quest for Mr. Right to "fate." Jameelah, an African-American Muslim, called off her engagement when she came up against racism, discovering her future in-laws prejudiced attitudes toward African Americans. African Americans make up 40% of the Muslim population in America but many Muslim parents who are immigrants from abroad object to their children marrying African-American Muslims. When Michelle converted to Islam, she became involved with Muslim matrimonial websites and third party matchmakers. She now believes the best solution is to find a Muslim adoptive family who can guide her through the maze of Muslim courtship in America
