Would you like to marry Mohammad?

A lonely bachelor has taken an unusual step in finding true love – by plastering his face across huge billboards in the hope of finding his dream wife.

Entrepreneur Mohammad Malik, 29, set up the website ‘findmalikawife.com’ and has plastered his face on several advertising hoardings across Birmingham.

Drivers using the A34 can see a smiling Mohammad lying on the floor and jokingly begging prospective partners to ‘save me from an arranged marriage’.

But any ladies fearing this might just be a gag can rest assured that Mohammad is seriously searching for a wife to ‘grow our love for each other and Allah’.

Mohammad hopes his big vision will trump anyone opting for dating apps, expert advice or trying to connect through mutual friends or family members.

‘I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there’, he explained.

‘I had to get a billboard to get seen!’

Mohammad is originally from London, but describes Birmingham as ‘a second home’ thanks to the ‘top quality food spots in the city centre, bustling Alum Rock and the incredible mosques’.

The innovation consultant and entrepreneur also features on billboards on Golden Hillock Road and Hockley Circus in the city.

His website, findmalikawife.com, details his no-expense-spared search for love.

‘My ideal partner would be a Muslim woman in her 20s, who’s striving to better her deen.

‘I’m open to any ethnicity but I’ve got a loud Punjabi family – so you’d need to keep with the bants. Always personality and faith over anything else!

‘P.S I’m an only child and look after my mom and dad. If this is a deal-breaker I don’t think it’ll work out.’

Mohammad says he took the unusual approach to find romance after the usual methods of meeting ‘the one’ did not bear fruit.

He said: ‘I’m a creative, love doing the most random and absurd – but 100 per cent halal of course – things.

‘Traditional methods such as ‘rishta aunties’ didn’t work for me so thought why not take it to the billboards!’

The word ‘Rishta’ means to propose in Hindi, meaning a ‘rishta auntie’ is essentially a marriage broker who serves as a matchmaker for men and women in her community.

Mohammad added: ‘I’m hoping to find the one. It’s early days but responses thus far have been in the double digits – keep them coming.’

Mohammad was keen to stress his search for love was genuine and that he is not against arranged marriages

Mohammad was keen to stress his search for love was genuine and that he is not against arranged marriages.

He said: ‘I think arranged marriages have a place and tradition in many Islamic cultures.

‘In fact, there are many studies that show that arranged marriages have many advantages.

‘I just want to try and find someone on my own first.’

Mohammad says he’s received offers from over one hundred women since the billboards were put up on New Year’s Day.

The singleton has also taken out similar adverts in Manchester and London but refused to reveal how much he has paid for them.

The average costs of advertising on a billboard in the UK is believed to be around Β£500-Β£600 a week dependent on location.

Giving his reasons for going to such drastic measures, Mohammad, from West London, said: ‘Probably because of my personality.

‘I’m a creative and I love doing the most random and absurd things – as long as they are 100 per cent halal of course.

‘Traditional methods such as ‘rishta aunties’ didn’t work for me so thought why not take it to the billboards.

‘I have been looking for someone seriously on and off for two years I’d say.. I began casually searching just before the start of Covid.

‘And I actually did find someone and was planning to get married but when the pandemic hit my freelance and consultancy work grinded to halt and I shifted my focus to pivoting my career.

‘After finding my feet in my new work I began looking again after the second lockdown but without luck.

‘I’ve got billboards in Birmingham, Manchester and London – which I thought would increase my chances of finding someone.

‘They have been up since the New Year. A New Year, a new me!

‘It’s early days but responses thus far have been in the triple digits and from some really lovely people – keep them coming.

‘I’m hoping to get in touch with women I like soon.’
