SABA (Shadi Assistance by Bihar Anjuman) is one of the most useful service by Bihar Anjuman that has been helping the Muslim community of Bihar and Jharkhand since its launch on 25th May, 2005.
Shaadi (marriage) is the most important event that transforms a Muslim youth into a complete man or a woman, prepares him or her to share responsibilities. Marriage is a sacred act, and looking for the right partner is essential for a long-lasting relationship to begin. Therefore, matrimonial has become an integral part of the Anjuman’s activities
Two main reasons:
Anti Dowry: SABA promotes marriage arrangements that do not involve any dowry considerations. The dowry ritual has recently been playing a bigger role in marriage solemnization. It is obvious now that we can see this evil practice very common in our society. It is particularly destructive when the marriage itself is conditional upon the dowry. Hence we felt that there should be a matrimonial website which is open to Muslims who do not wish to participate in dowry rituals and wish to contact others who feel the same way
International Rishta: People living in various parts of the World find it difficult to find suitable Muslim brides and grooms for their daughters and sons, especially if they are searching for those who speak Urdu. It is very difficult for people living in the West, the Middle East and the Emirates, to find a properly brought-up match in a practicing professional Muslim family, because people don’t know each other and don’t know where such families reside. The lack of an extensive social network creates a real problem in this way.
A member of Bihar Anjuman, Dr. Imtiyaz Ahmad Khan Sb., a consultant physician, who retired from the UK govt health services, is among those who strongly support the idea of initiating this service.
Now with matrimonial profiles of boys and girls, approaching 1,000, on the Web site, Bihar Anjuman is effectively serving the Muslim community from Urdu-speaking regions.
In order to spread the reach of this service and take the benefits of SABA far and wide, each one of us needs to inform every Indian Muslim in our address books about SABA. Your suggestions will help us improve the process, and make it more effective and fruitful. If you are a web master, you could make this service more professional or more fruitful.
The primary objective of this service is to help the community’s brothers and sisters get married with much less paintitle="verse" src="http://www.sabaonline.org/images/verse_about.png" alt="verse" />
