President
About Me
My name is Zaidi Hamid and currently I am a third year Medical Student. It is an absolute honour and privilege to be serving as part of your Islamic Society 18/19. People joke about ISoc being like a black hole, once you enter, you can’t leave. For me, this couldn’t be closer to the truth (unfortunately/fortunately/send help) with this being my 6th year involved with an ISoc in some way, shape, or form. Looking back, the is no doubt at all that joining ISoc was one, if not the most, beneficial/life changing decisions of my academic life so far. Alhamdulillah, this year I have been blessed with an extremely competent and creative committee, who are focused on making your student experience as easy and enjoyable as possible for you as Muslim students, and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together. If you have any comments, ideas or questions, please do email me or pull me aside if you see me on campus.

About Me

Asalaamualaykum Warahmatullah Wabaratahu!!!!
My name is Zakariya and I’m a 2nd Year Medic (there isn’t enough of us imo).
I am the current vice-president brother for the most SaVaGe ISoc in the U.K.

My supposed job description is this:

  • to be a ‘point-of-contact’ for all the lads on campus, having your development and growth as a Muslim at heart
  • aid the president in the continual development of the society and its visions/aims
  • represent the ISoc in all the ways, and by extension Islam

But what I really am is the ‘go-to-brother’ for anything you need.

Things I can do for you:

  • Boost your KD from a 0.5 to 2.0+
  • Take you out on the phatest halal sesh you’ll ever go on
  • Make you the best tea you’ve ever drunk
  • Teach you how to incorrectly palpate for a cardiac heave and fail your OSCE.
  • Be a savage
  • Show you de wae

Things I cannot do:

  • Boost your 2:1 to a first
  • Not cry when watching the ending of Toy Story 3
  • Be moist
  • Be annoying/uncool
  • Pass a fatwah
  • Eat only one fatayer, the sunnah comes in threes, and so do fatayers.

Fun facts about me: I am somali at heart, it is a sin to eat rice without a banana in my book

Secret Talent: I have smoother hair than Sami and I am far hencher than Zaidi.”

Vice-President Sister
About Me

“Asalaamu alaykum wa rahmahtullahi wa barakatu,
My name is Shamena and I am NOT!! a medic, but if you say Middle Eastern Studies fast enough it kinda sounds like medicine. Yeah, I didn’t capitalise medicine. I’m from London so I can’t help but say ‘bare’ at any given moment. That being said I’m bare nerdy: I like playing video games, reading manga and watching anime. :/
My favourite quote would have to be “if you’re not laughing, you’re crying” by Shamena Qureshi™. My secret talent is that I can perfectly imitate a trumpet. If I was an emoji I’d be the cool sunglasses emoji because I’m totally NOT a loser!!

The end.”

About Me

I’m Maymunah, your VPSA for this academic year! Currently I am studying Medicine with European Studies. InshAll*h this year, my aims are to inspire confidence and proactivity within the Muslim community when it comes to representation and politics. As a born and raised Mancunian, I am overjoyed to welcome you to the home of the greatest Premier League team in history, Manchester City. Aside from arguing with united fans, I am fond of debating, archery and am learning (or at least attempting to learn) Swedish.”

About Me

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu. My name is Salma and I am a final year Psychology student. I am very excited to be your Gen Sec this year. ISOC is a true passion of mine and has genuinely benefitted me in more ways than I can express. I can only hope to give back this year, for the sake of Allah swt, and help towards making your ISOC experience the most beneficial, inshaAllah.

I love too many things to list on here but at the top of my mind, my interests include reading, writing, traveling and chasing countless dreams. If you see me around (probably at the library, drinking too much tea), be sure to say hi.”

Year of Study- Year 2Asalaamualaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu
Dear Reader,
I pray this benefit you and me.
Imagine having the ultimate vision that you want to fulfil, and in the process of fulfilling it, you
obtain everything else you want.
Imagine being surrounded with people who have the ultimate vision, and in the process of them
fulfilling it, they obtain everything else they want, even though everything else they want could be
vastly different to what you want.
Dreams and passion have always inspired me. Through the events, atmosphere, and people that you
encounter through the Islamic Society and University, In Sha Allah, you can achieve this ultimate
vision and the other things you wish for.
If you wonder how I have the audacity to make such a claim, know that as you come closer to
attaining your ultimate vision, your wants will change so that you are satisfied with what you have.”

About Me

Assalamualaikum!
I’m Zahra and I’m a third year dental student. In my spare time I enjoy complaining about the proportion of medics on this year’s team, defending the North in debates against southerners and browsing through the widely-loved ‘halal memes for jannah-minded teens’.
I look forward to serving you to the best of my ability inshaAllah! If you ever need anything please get in touch, I’d be glad to help,

– your sister in Islam

Mustafah Kazi

General Committee Brother
About Me

“Asalamu’alaikum,

My name is Mustafah and I am about to start my fourth year studying medicine.

A bit about myself: I like to play sports, cook all sorts of different foods, read, play ps4 and go to the gym. My favourite sports are football, badminton, tennis, skiing and volleyball but I will give anything a go.

My dream when I am older is to run a restaurant in my free time but apparently, I have to get a “real” job first.
If you see me around on campus be sure to come over and say salaam and I hope that together we can make this year a fun filled, exciting and inspiring ISOC year!

General Committee Brother
About Me

“I am a second year Economics student. My journey to ISoc started through some good friends like most people. The things that I have learned through ISoc have been life changing which is one of the reasons why I joined ISoc, so I can offer others a chance to experience what I experienced. Reading is an inconsistent hobby of mine. I am not a gym lad by any stretch but I do enjoy a “sesh’ of ‘pumping the iron’ a few times a week and a kick-about every now and then. I don’t have any hidden talents to share, if I have a hidden talent, all I can say is, it is really good at hiding.”

About Me
Assalaamu alaykum,
I’m Sidra and I’m a third year pharmacy student.
Often mistaken for being from Bradford (no idea why) so just to clarify I am LEEDS born and bred.
I do have other interests apart from attending the majority of isoc events.
Like the gym! Which I kept up for a solid two months #gainz
I happen to be a very entertaining Articulate player so hmu for a game.
Known for being a proud Toba Tek Singhian.. I am yet to meet someone who actually knows what this means. “

Amina Ismail

General Committee Sister
About Me
My name is Amina and I’m a second-year medic (but I don’t like to tell people that). My friend’s mum calls me “the doctor baker” because I bake (and sell) cakes, amongst other baked goods. My “in my spare time” hobbies include going for long walks and reading, both fun and educational books (currently reading: the Outlander series and the Masnavi). When I have the moneys, I like to travel – my favourite place in the world so far is New Zealand. Although I seem quiet on the surface, I am far from shy and once you get me talking about a topic I’m passionate about I won’t stop.”

Siti Nur Izzaty Binti Nor Izuddin

General Committee Sister
About Me
Assalamualaykum, hi, apa khabar, kabare everyone! Alhamdulillah for another day, another chance to repent and seek the pleasure of Allah. My name is Siti Nur Izzaty. Siti for short. I’m an Electrical and Electronic Engineering student. Not really have the idea on what to write in this section because I don’t really know about my own interesting facts. But I do believe that every student needs a handy-dandy list of fun facts about themselves to tell other people. So, here’s mine! I will start with my hobbies. I love to stay active! I love dancing (read:traditional dance), singing and sometimes drawing. I’m an ambivert (or probably more to introvert). I can say that I love my friends because I feel my most confident when I’m surrounded by those who love and support me (especially when I’m 6579 miles away from family). Lastly, I hope everyone had a great day! xx”

Hana Jafar

General Committee Sister
About Me
Assalamu Alaykum! I’m in my final year, reading English Literature. I enjoy reading, writing, speaking to people, and hearing their stories. I grew up in Dubai and moved to Manchester for my degree, where I fell in love with the city and people. I’m passionate about mental health and wellbeing. I also run a theatre society for women. In my spare time, I enjoy crafting and making things. I feel grateful to have become a part of ISoc. It is more than a society, it is a life-changing set of experiences and invaluable friendships that – if made for the sake of Allah – become lifelong investments in the hereafter. If you see me around, say salaam!”

About Me

“Assalaamu Alaykum!

I’m Maira, a second year medic from Liverpool, which means I can’t talk without someone commenting on my (very slight) scouse accent. Outside of library-hopping, I love following the football (supporting LFC of course!) and I train in Taekwondo. Attending ISoc and FOSIS events is also right up there with my fave things to do.

About Me
Assalaamu Alaikum!
My name is Maliha, I’m currently in my second year of Medicine at the University – yes you read that right, another Medic! This year I am one of your Sisters’ Committee officers and I hope to do this role justice i’A.
So, a bit about myself; I’m a 19-year-old who gets questioned twice about their age before people accept my answer. The standard response is “No, you can’t be? You look 14!” Moving on, the coffee life chose me and I’m always up for a coffee trip, just come find me.
On a more serious note, I love meeting and befriending new people, I enjoy trying to learn a different language, reading and writing – not about myself; I’m currently finding this very difficult to do, so I’m going to end this here
Feel free to get in contact and I’ll try my very best to help i’A! “

Committee and Welfare Officer
About Me
Salams! I’m afraid to inform you that I’m yet (another)(2nd year) medic on committee – but rest assured, I won’t (try to) bring that up in conversation. In no particular order of importance: I like Malteser buttons. My puns are always intended. 24/7 chatterbox. (50%) Birmingham raised, but I don’t have a Brummie accent (I hear your sigh of relief…). (50%) Dubai raised. (100%) Syrian. Pro-procrastinator (©). Vanilla-Latte is my life-saver in grim MCR weather. Passionate about all-things academia. Part-time joker. Big mental-health advocate. Can’t say no to pizza. Still afraid of the dark. My voice will probably burst your eardrums (please ensure to stand at least 3m away). Full-time overthinker. Obsessed with Harry Potter. Aspiring writer (look out for ‘She tried to be funny, but no one laughed: an autobiography’).

And…I’ve reached the 150-word limit.

About Me
“My name is Maalek, a student of engineering from Manchester. You may be wondering who I am, how I ended up in ISoc, or why I even exist, but rest assured, the mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced, and the world is so much stranger than you’d think. In fact, there are 2 types of people in the world: those who think they’re normal and those who know there’s no such thing 😉. I love the outdoors, the indoors, and all doors generally (especially the exciting ones with the red ‘No Entry’ sign), and you probably wouldn’t believe me If I was to say I love reading and writing, due to the conciseness of this passage, but that’s because I love writing about important and beneficial things, and my bio is neither of those. If you have the passion, restlessness and insanity, then please do get in touch, and together, we will NOT keep calm and carry on, rather, (subject to sincerity) we shall change the world one idea at a time, for the world belongs to those who READ, and fortune favors the audacious…”
