Having been on the Madinah al-Ilm course in 2010, I decided that this year I would like to be a mentor on the course. Compared to being a participant, attending the course as a mentor was a completely different experience for me. It has definitely helped me in my spiritual and personal development and has equipped me with some key skills that will be beneficial to me in the future.
