Hussein Abdallah - Experience of a Bilal Participant on Madinah and Bab Course 2014

Updated on 12 March 2018

This journey was indeed “Transformation of Life” journey loaded with divine Mercy! We got a warm reception and everyone enjoyed the benefit of friendship. We had a program for classes, Ziyarat, entertainment and reflection. The classes were very beneficial since connected to the current issues affecting the youths. We had four classes in Qum: Marriage and career selection, Tawheed, Elements of Human decline and Nafs. We felt much benefited.

We were privileged to have Ziyarat on different shrines including the shrine of Sayyida Fatima Al Masuma (AS), Imam Ridha (AS), Bibi Shatita and many other shrines of Holy personalities. We were able to feel the lively part of Islamic history while in the shrines. We also got the chance to visit Hamadan Water Falls and mountains. It was an opportunity to see some of the wonderful creation of God. We went to Ali Sadr cave which was an amazing place.

This journey gave us as the opportunity to live in an Islamic state and experience an Islamic environment. It was a good transformation of life as I got influenced in my spirituality. It was really a new dawn for me and marked the most important point of my life.

We made friends and by the end of the trip, we opened a group account on Whatsapp where we stay connected and keep in touch with our fellow mentees and mentors. It was an experience that I wish to relive once again have since it was a new dawn for me to start living according to the Islamic principles. I always pray that every person could get a chance to enjoy this experience in the Madinah and Bab Course.  May God bless all those who contributed to the success of the 2014 Madina and Bab short summer courses.
