Message from the President October-November 2013 (Dr. Tanveer Zubairi's 1st message)

All the praises to Allah Subahanhu wa Tallah for HIS endless bounties and his mercifulness. FIMA and IMASA concluded their 30th council meeting and 33rd scientific convention in Cape Town, South Africa.

Both the events were a great success and gave an unsurpassed opportunity to the IMA delegates from 23 countries to meet and interact with each other and to learn and share their experiences. It is not an easy task to manage such an extensive, large scale, and high-end budget activity without the concerned efforts of an exceedingly motivated team of focused and dedicated workers.

Alhamdulillah, FIMA and IMASA joining hands with each other stood the test of time and the meetings have been ranked as one of the best FIMA meeting held in so many years.

The elections for FIMA exco were also conducted and I was bestowed upon the responsibility to act as elected President FIMA for 2013-15. I feel it as a very challenging and responsible undertaking to oversee and supervise the ever expanding affairs of a very proactive and vibrant international organization of Muslim Physicians having a glorifying history of 32 years of acting as an umbrella body of Muslim Physician bodies working globally.

At every step I need your support and prayers; I also pray to Allah SWT to grant me enough strength, energy, vigor, and feel of Iman to accomplish this uphill task.

I am so indebted to all the delegates who traveled from around the corners of the world to attend these meetings. The attendance and active participation of delegates were exemplary. Our local hosts; IMA of Cape Town also extended the best hospitality to their guests and families and made this event a memorable part of their lives.

In the working of FIMA, although our conventions are very important and are the main hub of our activity and working. However, for the IMAs the period which lapses between the two yearly conventions are most important.

I am sure all of our members / associate members IMAs have started their routine activities In addition, a number of IMAs also pledged to boost their student chapters and start relief ativities on their end. Kindly feel free to ask FIMA exco for any assistance, guidance, or support in any of these projects.

In 2014, FIMA exco has decided to collaborate and jointly organize the 31st council meeting and scientific convention with IMA of North America in Arusha, Tanzania.

The dates have been finalized and it will be held from 6th-10th August 2014. We have a very young IMA in Tanzania, which has joined FIMA only last year. The arrangements for FIMA council meeting and scientific convention are equally challengins.

I am sure all the IMAs will plan ahead of time to join this historic moment. Tanzania is blessed with most scenic views of nature and is very famous for safari and gaming tours, which will be and added attraction for the delegates.

The FIMA e-newsletter has started its 5th year of e-publication, I request all of the IMAs to circulate this newsletter to all the Muslim Physicians and allied health professionals in their respective countries and also send the FIMA secretariat an update of their activities.
