Salaam,
Are there any masjids near Berkley, SF? My fiancé just got acceptance for transfer under grad and i am curious on the neighborhoods around there/if there’s opportunity to buy a starter home as I’ll be there 2ish years maybe more. Also any word on community of Muslims would be appreciated. Jazakallah

Yep, there is a pretty large Islamic center in Berkeley itself. Nearby in Oakland, there is a larger, more diverse Muslim community.

30 miles away: Fremont and Union City have a massive Muslim community.

Starter home really depends on your budget, but by and large the SF Bay Area is crazy expensive

Berkley is a crapshoot, but in terms of buying a starter home you should def reach out to some local real estate agents that are in the community to get their best opinion

The Bay Area has a great Muslim community. A lot of Muslims growing up in the bay in the early 2000s were influenced by the likes of Ustd. Usama Canon, Sh. Hamza Yusuf, Imam Zaid, Imam Suhaib Webb which has had a lasting impact in the community

A lot of hippie style Muslims in the Bay Area, including some celebrity clerics.

I start stims in July and am likely to have to travel during the 2 weeks on stims leading up to egg retrieval - is it easy to fly with all the medication or is it just not worth it because you feel so bad & hard to predict when the retrieval will need to be? I have PCOS and v high risk for OHSS if that’s relevant. Also - how far before stims did you stop drinking? Thank you!

Hey Sharks,
I need some guidance on my career path.
I am a full stack developer with IBM serving notice period.
Tech stack is JAVA/SpringB/ Micros/Angular/ GCP.
I got an offer from Citi Bank / Wells Fargo which is a backend role only.
Now I got offer from JPMC but the tech stack is different, Its for Infrastructure team and technology does not have JAVA.
Its for React/ Node JS/ Python.
Also my biggest concern is it worth switching to JPMC for an infrastructure team and for a diff tech. YOE 9.

There’s no excuse that by the age of 25 you have never tried therapy. I’m speaking directly to the demographic in this group who I’m sure over 95% of people in here are earning 6 figures. Key word: TRY. I understand it’s not for everyone but to have never even attempted seeking therapy is a injustice to yourself and the people around you.

Salaam. Needing everyone’s advice. I am a male tithing 34 this year, iA. Family constantly asks me when I am getting married. Rishta aunties and uncles can be frustrating. Everyone tells me that according to desi culture since I am getting old I should be married by now. I ignore all the time but it can get stressful at times. Any M or F in a similar situation and has advice for me? Thank You.
