After finishing her degree as a Registered Respiratory Therapist, she worked full time in hospital and clinic settings. Living in a fast-paced life between work, family responsibilities and being a productive member of a large Muslim community in Chicago, she found herself with only a limited number of options and time to find or be found by the man of her dreams. Additionally, she realized that a variety of factors caused finding love the safe, traditional and Muslim way a complicated process. Considering her journey and personal experience, Nawal has always had the passion to help match people whether they are friends or family, as well as a possessing deep understanding of the Muslim laws of marriage. This, and other obstacles to finding the right match, helped spark the idea to start this service with first-of-its-kind and innovative ideas that align with Islamic marriage laws and consideration of modern culture and trends to make it easier for other men and women to find the right match. After a long journey, coupled with doubts and disappointment, Nawal met the love of her life and they have two beautiful boys.
