Salaam u alaikum all;

How nice to find this BBS - quite a job there, jannah (and others who I don't know who have worked on building this)!

Me & my garment (BilalX, Wassiti, A7med to all of you oldschool irc junkies) have been buddies with jannah for a long time - I thinksince before we were married.  She's one serious sister who gives her all, and I'm proud to know her, alhamdulilah.

Me..  nothing big - med student heading for Ob/Gyn insha'allah who likes to hide behind computer screens.

with that - salaams!

M. (y-pestis)

Welcome to the board M, and enjoy your stay. :)  I've forgotten, Y.M. Pestis is the name of a virus, right? ???

I don't remember Wassiti using the name BilalX before, but I do remember his extreme fascination with samosas.

Ruqayah I think I met you last year at ISNA - you go to SUNY Buffalo, right?  I'm heading into 3rd year - start my first clerkship on Tuesday and I'm umm.. slightly terrified.  

Y. pestis is the name of the bacteria that causes the plague.  A fascinating organism, masha'allah.

jannah - oh didn't A. tell you - he's already taken over the world.  I'll remind him to give you the keys at ISNA.

M, nope, you must be thinking of someone else, besides, my real name isn't Ruqayyah :P I go to school in Ohio. oooh, clerkships! that sounds like a lot of fun :) you'll be delivering babies before you know it ;) i'm enjoying this year though, it's a lot more interesting that last year. The only tricky thing that i've encountered is trying to find an easy way of putting my stethoscope into my ears underneath my hijab-it's a little awkward, hehe :)

Nah - that's just how I sign my name.

The stethoscope is tricky - just wait til you have to scrub, though!  What school are you at?  I go to a DO school - there's one in Ohio - are you there?

Jannah, that would be awesome if all the old #islam irc junkies came here. BilalX and Wassiti are 2 different people.

Sister Mrs. X weren't you a biotech major?
