Video: How did one man play cupid for 100,000 muslim marriages?

Adeem Younis, founder of SingleMuslim.com, built up the UK's largest faith-based matchmaking website from a tiny office above a Yorkshire pizza shop.

As the digital age continues to transform every aspect of our lives, finding love has become big business globally. Worldwide spend on dating apps was £448m in 2017, according to app research company App Annie. Dating apps made up three of the top 10 apps by consumer spend last year in the UK, according to the firm.

Its founder Adeem Younis claims his site has sparked around 100,000 marriages since it was founded in 2000. SingleMuslim.com is currently number eight in the top ten general dating platforms in the UK.

Arabian Business' reporters Shruthi Nair and Bernd Debusmann discuss dating apps, such as SingleMuslim.com on this edition of Inside AB.
