    Any help is appreciated

    My Professor is leaving the country for a few years to be Dean of reputed University overseas

    He has been helpful over the years, writing letters of recommendation, even writing recommendation letter so I can get piece of property.

    He invited his former students to visit his apartment,

    How do I express gratitude in Pakistani / Islamic culture

    I can think of a beautiful gilt
    -edged aesthetically bound handy Quorn and or a medallion with embossed work or rosewood artefact engraved a pattern of arabasque rangoli. Google throws up thousands of gift items depending upon price range.

    If I were you, I would keep it non-religious. A thank you note and something local for him to remember his time at the university would be great. We like to buy a coffee book from the local town. Or something as simple as a card with messages from former students would be appreciated.
    If you want to buy something, look for a book or an artifact related to his work. We work on infectious diseases and a little thing with my model organism/a little plush toy bug is always a treasure.

    Not much! A gift is a token to show that you appreciate them. It shouldn't have a big monetary value. Most universities limit the gift amount. I don't accept gifts unless it is something small like a coffee mug or tea (under $25).

    Greetings,

    Thank you so much dear.

    I hope i am not too late to respond.

    Though it depends upon the personality and taste of a person;you can gift him a plaque with a beautiful quote or any verse from Quran or a beautiful Pen.

    if you want to give him anything related to his religious taste then I hope he would be happy to receive a set of Sahih AlBukhari OR A set of explanation of the Quran Pondering over the Quran OR Biography of Prophet (peace be upon Him) The Sirah of the Prophet: A Contemporary and Original Analysis [Qadhi, Dr. Yasir, Sharief, Dr Salah]

    Hope this helps!

    regards,
    Yumna
