From the very first day, EternalGarment.com was started with consultation, support, encouragement, and duas from several local Islamic scholars from the Chicago area. Since then, other numerous scholars across North America have learned about our crucial community service project, and they whole-heartedly support this unique matrimonial website. Throughout our journey, we continue to seek regular advice and feedback from our supporting scholars, and we continue to request their feedback on how to keep this marriage website halal and beneficial for the global Muslim community.
Below is an initial listing of the scholars and Islamic community leaders who currently support and officially endorse our EternalGarment.com matrimonial website. This list will continue to grow rapidly inshaAllah as the word gets to many other scholars and community leaders around the globe.
We need more intelligent and relevant projects like Eternal Garment. A respectful matrimonial website for Previously Married Muslims. Awesome idea!
9. Shaykh Amin Kholwadia, Director of Darul Qasim Institute, Glen Ellyn, IL.
"Marriage is part of my Sunnah,” the Prophet Muhammad SAW said. He also said: “a person who invites towards a virtue is like the one who does a virtue.” It is clear from these prophetic statements that we are indebted to projects like Eternal Garment for taking on the responsibility of facilitating marriage in the Muslim community. Indeed, we hope that the people behind this project succeed and earn the reward of their virtue in both worlds. Ameen.

EternalGarment.com is a Muslim Matrimonial website for all Muslims, yet uniquely catered to [Divorced, Widowed, Reverted, etc…] Muslims. This is a great concept and I fully support this project.
11. Mawlana Bilal Ali Ansari, Director of Darul Hikmah Academy. Westmont, IL
Eternal Garment is a project long overdue. That Allah has accepted the brothers and sisters behind the project to fulfill a communal obligation of uniting previously married individuals should be testimony itself to the project's importance and the Muslim community's obligation to assist. I pray that Allah (swt) endows Eternal Garment with eternal blessings and ongoing success.
One of the frequent requests when meeting people during da'wah is help in searching for a mate. We are grateful that now along with dua's we can offer this wonderful tool, an appealing site, EternalGarment.com to those who come to us for help in fulfilling this aspect of the sunnah. May Allah ta'la bless all those involved in maintaining it.

Eternal Garment is a unique service for the Muslim community, in that it specifically tailors to the needs of individuals who have been previously married and seek to remarry. The website is efficiently designed, free of cost and ensures the participation of only serious individuals. This makes it an ideal option for Muslims. It is a commendable endeavor and an essential service for our community.
As an Imam, I am constantly faced with the reality of family break-ups, divorce, and the resulting fitnah of having numerous unmarried Muslims in the community. Even in the times of the sahaba (RA), divorce and family break-ups took place. However, the difference then was that marriage was very easy, and even divorced/widowed Muslims could get remarried very quickly without any negative stigma. EternalGarment is the first project that fulfills this very dire need within our Muslim community, to make it easier for previously married Muslims to insha'Allah get remarried. Therefore, I fully support EternalGarment and pray that Allah (swt) makes it a means of ease and benefit for the ummah, ameen.
15. Imam Abdul Hakim Dickenson, Imam of Masjid Uthman, Lombard, IL.
May Allahu Ta'ala bless this endeavor with success. This is, in fact, an obligation and pressing need of our communities. We should give our support and make Dua that Allahu Ta'ala will put barakah in these efforts. Facilitating the halal is our barrier to what is haram. Therefore, we should remember the directive of Allah (swt) and take practical steps with the avenues available.
16. Imam Faraz Ahmad, Director of Darul Mahmood Inst, Prior Lake, MN.
Successful and productive marriages are an essential element for the Muslim community to move forward. This can only be possible if Muslims and Muslimahs choose Qur’an and Sunnah as the fundamental and only guide to manage and solve their problems, and also if they connect to the scholars of their communities for education and advice even before they initiate the marriage. Eternal Garment is unique in their foundation, as they are students of knowledge, and in their concentration, as they are focused on previously married individuals. May Allah the Magnificent help them attain their desired objectives and results, and also excel them in their sincere efforts. Ameen.

Upon embracing Islam a new Muslim faces many challenges, including the challenge to establish a family and settle down. Some of these new Muslims are either divorced or are single parents, thus double the hurdle for them to find suitable spouses. Upon hearing about the project of www.EternalGarment.com, I was delighted to find out that a service exists which can accommodate Muslims who are single with children, like some new Muslims, or Muslims who are divorced or widowed. My prayer for success are there for the EternalGarment team and for Muslims who are in pursuit to find pious spouses.

"No matter how much we do, the stigma attached to re-marrying is always negative and often silenced. Muslims throughout the world are grateful for EternalGarment.com and their efforts in giving a chance for everyone to marry, and complete half of their religion".
