  1. I don't know, Aisyah.
    I guess you can ask Muslim Federation of Korea by calling them or when you visit the Seoul mosque just stop by their office, however, if I go there I'll surely ask and update this post..

  3. Well, I think to work within Islam related areas in South Korea one has to be proficient (fluent) in Korean language besides Arabic.

    Moreover, the jobs in mosques etc. are possible through government exchange programs.

    I'd suggest you to learn Korean because it will be helpful for you while in Korea.

    Is Al Fatah the only masjid in Busan or are they any more mosques in that area? I plan to relocate to Ulsan or Busan and I am wondering about the masajid in Busan and Ulsan area and any in between these cities.
    And of course I would like to know the Halal restaurants and halal grocery stores in these cities as well.
    Jazakallah khair.

    1. @Ali: From Seongnam - Seoul mosque in Itaewon is the nearest and easiest to go! There are direct buses from Seongnam to Gangnam and bus 421 from Gangnam will drop u off to Itaewon. - 5 minutes walk away from the mosque.

      For halal food - its hard but read my post on Halal Korean food - it will be helpful.

      Hope this helps!

  24. Assalaamu 'Alaikum Sister.

    I need some help please.
    I have been searching the web trying to prepare for my trip to S.Korea in November this year. I will be staying in Bundang.
    I have been trying my hardest to find an Imam or someone who can perform a Nikah so my fiancee and I can get married. We are not interested in a big ceremony, just the 2 of us, an Imam, witnesses etc and Allah SWT to bring myself and wife together in Islam.

    The problems i have been facing is when i call the Masjid i feel i was not being treated fairly. I am ok with that and understand where they are coming from.

    For me, i am a simple man and so is my wife to be. We have our minds set to have a Nikah performed in Korea next month but unfortunately i cannot find any information who does this.

    The alternative is to come back to Australia to perform but for me, because my wife to be is Korean, i would like to have the Nikah settled in Korea. It would mean the world to both my bride and I.

    Sorry for the long message but i hope you will be able to put me in contact with someone who is qualified to do this in Korea.

    I have no one else to turn to and i do apologize for approaching you.

    May Allah SWT reward you with any advice and all the advice you provide on your blog.

    My direct email address is zj@hpe.com

    Jazak Allah Khair

  25. Asalaam Alaikum Sister, I am an American Muslim interested in visiting South Korea. It is to my knowledge that Islam is growing there mashallah. Do you know of how the mosques there deal with bringing young people together for marriage? Or is it up to the individuals themselves to find their partners?
