The Spouse’s Programme was filled with laughter and fulfilled activities. Many “wow” and memorable moments shared with inspiring guests such as Zubeida Bux, a woman who may be physically wheelchair bound but proves that nothing can succumb her spirit and a large personality leaving us awestruck with her daredevil challenges. 

Shaykah Umme Rooman, another dynamic personality, enthralled us with her skills of the financial world and her Islamic knowledge. 

The Trauma Management Workshop by Haafidha Dr Ruwaida Vadachia had the ladies engaged with the concepts of consciousness, embodiment and self-regulation. They were so enthusiastic about embracing a new modality to heal trauma. Many expressed how they felt and calm came over them after having experienced TRE and mind heart coherence.

The Students’ Programme chaired by members of the IMASA Student Wing, Mr Mohamed Hoosen Suleman, Mr Abdullah Omarjee, and Ms Naseeha Omar. The Student Wing is directly supervised by Specialist Anaesthetist, Dr Mohamed Raiman. The Convention’s Student Programme boasted a resounding success with nearly 50 students, local and nationwide in attendance. 

Key topics of discussion included “Creating a sustainable and prosperous future for Islamic Medical Youth: Challenges, Successes, Recommendations” by Dr Maseeha Ansermeah and “The link between Islam and Science and the role of Islamic Medical Youth closing the gap” by Dr Tahmid Quazi. The keynote presentation was undertaken by world-renowned, internationally acclaimed scholar and academic, and guest of honour, Shaykh Sharif Al Banna on the topic “The need for social cohesion and unity within a divided Ummah: goals to work towards.”

The medical youth fraternity present at the Convention remained engaged throughout discussions and the Convention, through its dynamic speakers, certainly contributed to the growth and development of the future health workforce. IMASA understands the value and importance of investing in the academic progress of the youth. Students and early career professionals in the medical field play a pivotal role in ensuring good health and well-being. 

IMASA distinguishes itself as an organization to ensure that youth, who are the future guardians of healthcare, are equipped with the necessary skillset to serve the health-related needs of communities.
