Having lived in the counties of Sussex, Dorset and Kent for almost 40 years Mohamed Gulamabbas Kassamali moved to Birmingham in 2006. Shaukat Bhai Merali Dahya introduced Mohamed into the community and asked him to see if the matchmakers could be brought under one umbrella and formulated as a committee of the Birmingham Jamaat. Mohamed with the guidance of Sheikh Mohamed Rashid,  the then resident Aalim, asked Shaukatbhai to convene a meeting of the matchmakers in Birmingham. This was the start of the the Birmingham Matchmakers' Forum. Mohamed served as a secretary of the organization for a couple of years before taking a back seat. He works closely with other matchmakers on the team.

The Birmingham Matchmakers Forum is a group of volunteers who are passionate about supporting community members in finding a spouse for marriage.

We are connecting to a wider group of matchmakers as part of the International

Matchmaking Forum and encourage all interested people to get in touch.

We follow a strict procedure which is outlined below.
