01. Is it necessary to add a photograph to the profile and what purpose is served by adding it?
 

Experience gained in nikah.com reveals that Profiles with photos are viewed nearly 8 times more than Profiles without photo. Similarly profiles with photos are liable to get responses about 8 times more than profiles without photo.

It was also noticed that invariably Members wish to view Profiles with photos before they are responding to the other member and to know with whom they are conversing. Hence it is strongly urged that adding a photo to the profile is very beneficial.

02. From the safety and security point of view is it safe to add photos along with the profile?
 

Many safety measures and security checks have been devised in adding photos to Profiles. All photos are placed with nikah.com logo, watermarked, coded and made completely near 100% non-distortable. Particularly Muslim sister's photos are taken more care, before it is being allowed to viewers.

Besides nikah.com's additional features ensures that member can hide their photo and show only to specific members to whom they wish to grant access to view the photos and to whom they do not wish to. The Members can also easily alter the photo display settings whenever they wish. Thus it will be observed that it is absolutely safe and advantageous to add photos along with profile.

03. How do I choose a best photo, are there any tips?
 

Everyone knows that profiles with photos get way more responses. So put your best face forward, add a photo to your personal profile, and watch the responses pour in. Read these tips to learn how to post the best photo possible.

Need tips for your profile description?

Read our Guidelines. Do this before you post a photo so you can be sure that it will get posted on the site. All photos are subject to rejection or removal.
Show off how you look on an average day. Don't use a "glamour" shot on your profile. Sure, you look fantastic, but will you be able to live up to that image when it comes time to meet your match? You're more likely to get responses by posting an everyday picture.
Use a current picture. Do not post high school graduation photos, baby pictures, or that awesome shot from 10 years ago. If you don't have a recent photo, ask a friend with a digital camera to shoot your portrait.
Choose a quality photo. A close-up photo of your face is much more interesting than a blurry or far-away image. Take the time to find a clear, well-lit picture.
Smile! You look like a million bucks when you flash those pearly whites. Don't be shy.
Do not post a collage of photos - it will be rejected. But you can choose up to five of your favorite pictures!
Muslim Sisters' photos with Hijab are highly suggested.
nikah.com allows member to upload up to 3 photos and paid members up to 5 photos. Any one photo in the set of 3 or 5 photos, should have a close up clear photo of the member alone and the remaining can be group photos.
No more than two people in a photo where just one photo is uploaded with a profile. We want to see you and not your sister or brother! If you can't find any solo photos, you may post a picture that includes one other person. But try to keep the focus on you. If you do not have a single photo, you can forward us the group photo to us by email to and clear indication to us about you. Our photo team would examine the possibilities to take your picture out of the crowd and will attach with your profile, if it is viable.
