All praise be to Allah (SWT)! We were received and treated with kindness throughout the course. It was such a golden and lifetime opportunity for me to come and perform the Ziyarat of Lady Masuma (sa) and Imam Redha (as) as I progressed in my proximity to Allah (SWT) and seeking solutions to my own issues in life.
The lectures on different subjects were of great help since they enlightened and increased my understanding of Islamic principles and the religion at large.
The sessions with different scholars were very educative and helped me understand the concept of spiritual leadership. The trips to different places and the visits to the holy shrines were also educative and of much importance. We also took part in unique and fun experiences such as the telecabin rides and Ali Sadr Cave in Hamedan.
Exchanging ideas and learning from students of different cultures was enjoyable and one very memorable experience. Lastly, the course had a very big impact on my life and I wish to come there again and again.
I extend my thanks to the World Federation team - may Allah (SWT) bless you abundantly! Ameen

Imam Ali (AS) has said: “Live in this world as a traveller, and leave behind you every sweet memory. Indeed we are guests here, and every guest must soon leave.”
Winter has arrived and whilst many children across the world are excited, counting down till the winter holidays, it is very different for the displaced and orphaned children of Iraq.
