Medical Professionals Ziyafat

Baad salam al jameel

The ehsaan of Aali Qadar Moula TUS upon doctors and medical professionals leaves us overcome with humility. Now is our opportunity to araz our khidmat in service of our beloved Moula’s TUS khushi. Collectively, physicians and medical professional members of the SBMAA have been granted azeem sharaf of ziyafat of Aqa Moula TUS, on 12th Muharram at 1030am (Saturday morning, October 24th).

To participate in the ziyafat, please contact Shk Aziz bhai Poonawalla or Dr Shk Khozema Palanpurwala at Mahal us Shifa during clinic hours.

To participate in the ziyafat, you must be a registered member of the Saifee Burhani Medical Association of America. Eligibility for membership in SBMAA includes any practicing medical professional – physicians, dentists, and other allied medical personnel – as well as residents and pre-medical/medical/graduate students.  If you have not yet registered as a member of SBMAA, visit the following link to fill out your profile:

Therefore, it is imperative that each and every single member of SBMAA rise to the occasion.
