About Us

Our story

Hawaya was born of a simple idea: that today’s Muslims are comfortable using the digital world to solve their problems, but the world of Muslim love and marriage is still very old-fashioned. Modern progressive Muslim women want to be able to find a life partner for themselves, but the typical online dating journey was not compatible with their values.


Hawaya was created in Egypt in 2017, and soon spread among Muslims all over the globe. 


Hawaya was designed by young Muslims for their loved ones - sisters, family, and friends – so we can all feel at ease and in control of our journey towards lifelong love. 


In 2019, we became part of the Match Group, one of the world’s leading affinity app companies. We’re putting their data and artificial intelligence expertise to work to make Hawaya even better, while respecting our Muslim beliefs, values and culture.


At Hawaya, we believe that when searching for your life partner, you shouldn’t have to choose between being with the right person and doing it the right way. You can choose the right person, the right way.  


Our mission is to empower single Muslims on the journey to discovering their soulmate in a way that respects modern Islamic values, culture, and intentions.



This love journey begins with Hawaya.
