Thoughts on the Islamic community in Raleigh? What are the imams like, I believe Mohammed Abutaleb is up there who I really like but is he accessible and around? What’s the Muslim community like in general and what’s the ethnic makeup? TIA!

I moved to the NC area recently and really like the Muslim communities in the triangle (includes Raleigh) and Charlotte, NC. Nice masjids and diverse communities MashaAllah


Raleigh community is fantastic! A lot of masjid programming and successful community members. I would say a decent split of arabs and desis. I cant speak to the accessibility of the imams but they run alot of masjid programming so I’m sure you could contact them if/when needed.


Curious about this as well. Commenting to follow.

Hi All

Does work from office started for nagarro employees ?


I’ve been a planner for about 5 years now and want to move on to something that would be a better fit. I’m having difficulty discovering potential options that I can pivot to. Can you please share what you’ve successfully pivoted to if you were once a planner? And what made you decide to pivot to that specific field? Just trying to get ideas and some sort of direction.

Any advice on my resume would be great. Applying full time for Jan 2023! Interested in finance, data science, consulting.

Does Deloitte put any restrictions/monitoring on your PC once you hand in your notice?


Hi community, I finally came here for some words of wisdom from y'all.

Offer: 160TC, SDE, 200 Engineers
Current: 120TC, SDE, 4K Engineers
Benefits are about the same.

I have switched jobs 2 times in the past two years. This switch will mark it 3. I like the current work I do and my manager. By taking the offer, I sense there will be a tilt in my WLB as it’s a smaller company. They also use Elixr instead of Python which I’m familiar with.

What are your thoughts? Is the 33% salary worth it??

Both cost around the same - Lexus is more reliable and likely holds its value better but the Yukon is bigger and likely even safer.

3) % of WFH and WFO
4) Suppose I want to change my location somewhere in between my stint, will that be possible?
5) How to claim Telephone expenses along with monthly salary?

Forgiveness - Today’s Beautiful Hadith is about Forgiveness
Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr (RA) said on the minbar, "Make allowances for people and command what is right and turn away from the ignorant." (7:199) He said, "By Allah, we are only commanded by this ayat to accept people's character. By Allah, I will accept people's character as long as I am with them."

(Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 244, Book 12, Hadith 7)


Anyone on here dealing with dramatastic in-laws currently? “Love” marriage, 4 halal pre-marriage years (practicing Muslims, indian, and I’m a professional). Mine are insane - his mom said she’d disown him before the wedding, and his sisters went along with it. I have not heard from them since. His mom had this idea of his sisters (both younger than my husband) getting married before him. He’s since reconciled with his family but they literally don’t bother to even talk to me 🙄


Partners, Principals, and Directors- how did you network effectively as you moved up in your firms? Seems like rubbing a lot of elbows is required to make friends that will vouch for you. Personally find it difficult at networking events because I don't drink, and though I have a ton of friends that do and am personally comfortable around folks that get loose, they seem to be the ones that are a bit more closed off for a number of reasons that I can understand. If you don't drink, did you experience these challenges? And whether you do or don't, what tips do you have on building those real, lasting relationships? Always feels like I have to work down their guard and that just takes so much more work than I feel others don't have to do


Hi All, my cousin is majoring in electrical engineering (first in family) and I have no clue where to help him get started with internships. His parents are not college educated so he’s looking for guidance. Would appreciate if anyone here has some knowledge they can share!


Why is it that when we’re sick, we go to a doctor, when we are in legal trouble, we turn to a lawyer, when we need help building a house, we turn to advice from an architect, but when it comes to deen we think we are the experts and not the scholars who’ve spent their life studying theology and Islam. Such hypocrisy


I hate movies that always have terrorist shown as muslim, like no other fucking race or religion is involved in any of this BS. I'm personally boycotting such movies as they exploit Islam and feed on people's fear, just like terrorists do. Your thoughts?
