    yes i went to the east zone conference of the MSA years ago and I was the one that started the FASHION SHOW phenomena.
    I think we also had a lecture by MUHAMMAD AL SHAREEF. I think so. I think he was there.
    guess which year.
    funny you mentioned fashion show.

    MSA E-zone 2002 in New Jersey was one of the catalysts for me to start practicing Islam.
    May Allah bless E-zone and its workers.

      It really does sound like a great event. And knowing the MSA @ UPenn, those folks know how to organize… the campus is also beautiful, so it can only add to the experience :)

      P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, I am at Penn, so a little biased :)

    Actually the fashion show was only for women. but if you have a market for a wet thobe contest……. go ahead start one :)
    IT all depends on the Market………………

    Sounds nice, having it at UPenn. Is br. Nouman gonna enter the basketball tourney? I’m sure he can dunk.

    While explaining balagha to his defender. After breaking his ankles. Twice.

    Hisham Mahmoud is top notch (if I’m thinking about the right person…the Egyptian brother). His lectures on ‘Muhammad in Bible’ have brought many people to Islam, mashaAllah. On the flip side, ***** is a mushrik. But, thanks for highlightening him as well. You guys don’t learn, do you?


    Edited: Be very careful in pronouncing specific people to be mushrik/kafir. No takfir on named individuals will be tolerated.
