The application form is divided into two main sections;

2: Prospective partner’s details which the applicant must provide as to what his/her suitable preferences are in search for a potential match.
1: PERSONAL DETAILS
- Applicants are required to write their full name, address, age, ethnicity, height, nationality etc. accurately. This section will provide the interested member an overview of who you are, thus to compare your suitability with them.

- Education and Qualification Details – You are required to insert the name of the school, college, university or Islamic institute you have studied in the education box only. Whatever qualifications obtained from the various institutes you studied must be inserted in the qualifications box. This will be used to compare the suitability of your education and academic level with the interested member.

State how you would consider yourself in terms of a practicing Muslim/ah and your knowledge base in terms of Islam. Interested member would like to know about your personality and your level of Islamic knowledge. Considering yourself a practicing person suggests that you take Islam very seriously and you prioritise the Deen in your everyday life, especially in marriage relationship. Being a practicing person demonstrates a positive sign for those who are seeking for a practicing spouse, thus increasing your chances of success. Members would also like to know the number of siblings you have which you must provide in the delegated box. Names and ages of siblings are not required.

You are not required to write an elaborative account of your previous marriage on the form as you can discuss this in detail with the interested member.
- Previous criminal record –If you are guilty of any involvement in physical violence, drugs or have been convicted of homicidal offence then you must specify it. In the case you have ticked ‘Yes’ and specified either or similar nature to the above then we will contact you in person to discuss this with you.
2: PROSPECTIVE PARTNER’S DETAILS
This section will specify to AMNS of your requirements in seeking a potential match. This will serve as a guideline for AMNS staff when searching for a potential match. Ensure you are clear and focused about your preferences of what you seek in a future spouse. Being indecisive in your preferences will limit your chances of success, resulting in AMNS to struggle in finding a suitable match for you.
We require you to fill in the details of any two referee of your acquaintances whom we or the interested member can contact for more details about your personality in general. The referees must not be a family member or a close relative.
Having signed the declaration means that you have clearly understood the terms & conditions and promise to adhere to them throughout the duration of your registration. Applications not signed will be sent back and not processed until signed.
Tips for success: Applicants are recommended to be flexible much as possible in their preferences. Broadening your preferences will enable you to benefit more from AMNS service allowing us to extend our search further to increase your chances of success. Compromise whenever feasible bearing in mind that you will not always find a perfect match. As a Muslim, your only paramount requirement in a potential match must be that there are practicing and always prioritise their Deen. When communicating with the potential match, your discussion should focus around the following major questions;
- What does marriage mean to you?
- How would you consider yourself in terms of practicing Deen i.e. prioritizing Islamic teachings?
- How would you resolve conflict in marriage if it was to arise?
- What would you desire for your children to become in the future?
- What are your hobbies and interests? Likes and dislikes?
- Financial stability (to be posed by the girl or her family to the male).
