Assalamualaikum WBT

My dear brothers in the leadership and membership of PIMA.

My thanks to your out-going president, Prof Tariq for requesting me to pen a few of my thoughts on the occasion of your Annual Meeting. I have been on 2 occasions to Pakistan to witness at first hand the activities of your esteemed organization. Most recently in Islamabad in January 2006 for our biannual FIMA exco meeting.

All our FIMA exco members were impressed at the efficient and professional manner in which PIMA managed the humanitarian relief following the earthquake. The leadership provided by your organization helped to anchor and collaborate the various IMAs and other relief organizations which sent their teams to assist with the relief works. This is undoubtedly a consequence of the wealth of experience which you have accumulated from the more than 20 years of relief works in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world. I hope you will continue this noble yet awesome humanitarian and medical undertaking. A feat which is difficult to emulate since the benchmarks you have set are gold standards.

The acute demands of relief works have not detracted your organisation from your other priorities. Our visit to the Pesahawar Medical College was most inspiring. Your universal concept of Tarbiyah has extended from the early years of training of Hafizs to the medical student with a holistic approach to medicine. These are excellent institutions of learning which would unceasingly perpetuate the legacy of your works in PIMA.

Your respected elders had a firm hand in the embryonic and formative years of FIMA. And you are continuing this excellent tradition of leadership in FIMA. Many of our major projects in FIMA are parked in PIMA namely our FIMA secretariat, FIMA Hi-Tech Centre and chairmanship of CIMCO.

Your annual meet would be an ideal occasion to celebrate these grand achievements and simultaneously endow you the confidence and the empowerment to climb greater heights. It is also a period of reflection and contemplation to search inwardly how much as individuals and an organization you have endeavoured to beseech the Mardhatillah (Pleasure of Allah) through refinements of your human character and service towards mankind.

I pray to Allah that he bestows your organisation the best of rewards and bless your annual meeting of minds and hearts.

Humbly yours
Dr. Musa Mohd. Nordin
President FIMA 2005-2007
