A CREATIVE singleton has spent hundreds of pounds on several giant billboards advertising himself in a novel attempt to find a wife.
Mohammad Malik, 29, has set up a website in his unusual quest for love as well as plastering his photo on hoardings.
It features a 20ft picture of the Muslim lying down flashing a cheeky grin for the camera and joking: “Save me from an arranged marriage.”
The ads, on at least three billboards across Birmingham, direct potential suitors to his website findmalikawife.com.
And he says he has had more than ten replies so far.
He is from London but says he considers Birmingham his second home due to its mosques and food.
Mohammad, who works as an innovation consultant and entrepreneur, says in a video on his page: “Hi, I’m Malik. You may have seen my face on a billboard somewhere.
"I’m 29, live in la vida London. I’m an entrepreneur and a foodie and I’m religious. I am looking for someone who is working on her deen [Arabic word meaning religion].
"I am open to any ethnicity but come from a loud Punjabi family, so the banter has to be 100.

“If you’re interested, fill out the form and check out my details.”
Explaining the drastic measures, he said: “I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there. I had to get a billboard to get seen.
“My ideal partner would be a Muslim woman in her 20s, who’s striving to better her deen.
"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 stresses he is not against arranged marriages, adding: “I think arranged marriages have a place and tradition in many Islamic cultures.
“In fact, many studies show they have many advantages. I just want to try to find someone on my own first.”
