Halal Islamic speed dating in Malaysia is a new event organized in Kuala Lumpur that caters to Muslims in the country who are seeking partners in a strictly conservative community.

Courtship in Malaysian Muslims is not regarded positively and arranged marriages are the trend.

"I'm here to find someone for marriage because I'm too busy to meet anyone and I spend all my free time with my family," 29-year-old graphic designer Siti Aisha said, according to the Agence France-Presse.

There are over 2,000 single people who applied to participate in the event held last weekend in a restaurant.

This was the second "Halal Speed Dating" that was organized.

If matches are found to work for both the man and woman, they are not wedded immediately. Instead of casual hookups, Halal Speed Dating is about dignified and chaperoned meet-ups with the intention of marriage.

In fact, we do not condone the modern dating that is commonly practiced," said the founders of the Islamic speed dating event, 34-year-old Zuhri Yuhyi and 41-year-old Norhayati Ismail, International Business Times reported.

The first time it was held was in May 60 people attended.

The latest one was during the end of September where another 60 people participated.

The dating service is halal, meaning permissible under Islamic law, as it is practiced with an Islamic twist: women speed daters must be chaperoned by a wali, or guardian until she gets married and who grants her the permission to do so.
