Muslim women - how much did you expect your Meher to be? How much was it? Did you have a discussion with your husband about it before?

Belated Eid Mubarak to fellow Muslims!


Was recently laid off by EY, can anyone here from industry can refer? I am from Tax and would like try out industry opportunities. Any help is appreciated.

Does anyone do financial literacy workshops that incorporate Islamic financial guidelines (I.e zakat etc)

Ramadan Mubarak everyone. Should be an easy month!

Eid Mubarak fellow Muslim number crunchers! Hope you guys eat sewaiyan and get henna tats!


Tomorrow’s eid for us Canadians. Eid Mubarak folks! Taking tomorrow off to celebrate and pray


Almost Eid ... inshallah. Another Ramadan leaving us. When are folks celebrating ? Tuesday or Wednesday or TBD


Already completed my timesheet for next week. Next Tuesday and Wednesday I’m expected to be sick 😉


9% of Ramadan complete! Keep up the awesome work and may Allah accept it from us.


Ramadan Mubarak y’all! Hope you guys have a productive, successful one. What are some of your goals going into this one especially considering we’re all working, possibly studying for cpa , etc


Feel like my life is at a standstill these days and I have nothing to look forward to.. feel far from Islam and unfortunately laziness and constant feelings of emptiness are keeping me far


Thoughts on the MOTW-founder scandal? I don’t have much words for his behavior but I wish the organization wouldn’t suffer bc it has done good for many people and had the potential to do much more.

Do y’all have a prayer room at your firm? I don’t think mine does and I’m tryna think about how i can make it a thing. I’m sure there are other Muslims here

Confession: Ramadan’s coming up real soon. As much as I look forward to fasting, it dampers my productivity and it’s very tiring


Cool group folks. Recently joined!


Sending a message of peace to everyone post the New Zealand terrorist attack. I pray that Allah keeps you all spiritually , physically, and mentally safe. If you’re feeling like you need to talk


Where all my Muslim accountants at? 🙋🏻‍♀️


For those who work in the Big 4, any tips on getting noticed by them! I’m CPA eligible but dont have my CPA yet. I apply but never get noticed! Ugh.

Hey Salaam yall! Just discovered this App Lol super cool


Any Ertugrul fans out there? If so, where can one watch seasons 3 & 4? Just finished season 2 on Netflix and looking to watch the rest of the series from a non sketchy site. JAK in advance



As a student, Im interviewing for internships next semester. I've snagged some one-on-one's with professionals in various positions coming up soon.

How should I engage with them?

Eid mubarak!!!


Brainstorming on ideas to make the most of the last ten nights of Ramadan as a professional, ideas 💡.. go!


Ramadan Mubarak!!


Any Ramadan tips for work?


A little over a year ago, we had the Muslim ban. Now the ire seems to be focused on latino immigrants. How has your experience as a Muslim in America / the workplace changed in the last year?

As a visible Muslim, have you ever faced discrimination / Islamophobia at the workplace, either at the firm or by clients? Would like to know which country or city you are in as well

😄🤗 my face when I found this bowl! Salaams to my people 😊!


Do you guys pray while at work? If yes, where do you find the space?
