Professor Kalamazad Mohammed

My university training is in Mathematics. And Mathematics is what I teach for a living as they say. 

Or, stating it more properly: Teaching Mathematics at the University is what Allah has chosen as a means of providing me my livelihood -- Rizq -- in this world.

Wa Lakum Fil Ardi Mustaqarrun wa Mataa-'un Ilaa Heen!

But here is the point: 

Being a math teacher seems to give you a better understanding and deeper appreciation of words and their precise meaning. 

It is amazing how knowing the language of Mathematics (Numbers) makes you a better student of the language of English (Words): Her Majesty's Language, as Dr. Pasha calls it.
