"I hope you enjoy
the photos. It's amazing how youthful Yusuf looks for his years. Yusuf is certainly an

with us Cat fans outside the lecture hall. He was so friendly. Apparently he wanted to
meet his old fans, so he arranged for the meeting before the lecture. I certainly didn't

beard scratcher. <g> Notice the white shoes he's wearing. Quite a few people
commented about them. He's still a snazzy dresser, I guess. Of course, muslims generally
wear loose clothing to make it easier to perform salaat, the ritual prayers.
