Calendar* Correction: Marriage of Yusuf Islam, the former Cat Stevens

Many websites claim that Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens) married Fauzia Ali at the Kensington Mosque in England on September 7, 1979.  The correct date is September 7, and the two were married at the Regent's Park Mosque in London, according to the newspaper The Muslim Observer.  Several sites misspell both his Islamic name as Yusef, and his bride's as Fouzia.  The correct spellings are Yusuf and Fauzia.
