Where can German Muslims find soul mates?

BERLIN, December 10, 2005
( - The first Muslim matchmaking service in Germany is attracting scores of matrimonial profiles from Muslims searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right.
"Finding a wife or husband is no longer a headache for Muslims in Germany," Samer Fahd, the founder of the Islamic Marriage Center, told on Saturday, December 10.
Fahd said several Muslims have tied the knot since the service was launched in February of this year.
"We were not that famous at the beginning," he said. "But the center has become reputable over the days and has received so far 150 applications."
Islam comes third in Germany after Protestant and Catholic Christianity.
There are some 3.4 million Muslims in the country, including 220,000 in Berlin alone. An estimated two thirds of the minority are of Turkish origin.
