Muhammad Yasir answering a question from the floor
The last day of the 8th ICIEF Conference today saw Muhammad Yasir and Dr Zakaria Bahari presented their paper. As the previous days, the third day also gave me an opportunity to meet old friends and made new friends, as are recorded by the photos below. I spent the last night in Qatar tonight in my hotel room, preparing to depart for home at 0500 tomorrow morning, InshaAllah.

Prof Masudul Alam Choudhury from Sultan of Qabus University, Oman, who I was indebted to for initiating the establishment of International Project on Islamic Political Economy (IPIPE) in mid-1990s, that eventually developed into a Centre named Centre for Islamic Developmment Management Studies (ISDEV)
With Dr Mabid Jarhi, the former Director of IRTI at IDB and the President of the International Association of Islamic Economic and Finance
With Dr Tariqullah Khan, formerly at IRTI of the IDB and currently works with the Qatar Foundation, the main organiser of the 8th ICIEF Conference
With Dr Sayyid Tahir from Pakistan, a long time friend who I did not met for around twenty years
