Madinah and Bab – Boys Daily Blog – Sunday 17th August, 2014

Today has been a wonderful day for me. It is a day that the Madinah & Bab Summer Course participants were saying their farewells to the Holy City of Qum. Early in the morning we left for Tehran.

My visit to the Holy Shrine of Imam Khomeini was perhaps the peak of my day. Listening to Shaykh Kumail Rajani give an account of the Imam's life and his struggle in bringing about the Islamic Revolution of Iran, I felt inspired in so many ways!

I learned that success comes after a clear vision and patience. Imam Khomeini demonstrated that through the many difficulties he was subjected to by the then government of Shah, including multiple exiles.

Another very important lesson I got from the Imam's life was his view on humanity, irrespective of religion or race. According to Shaykh Kumail, while in France Imam Khomeini gave gifts to Christians during the Christmas season.

So, after an exciting tour of the city of Tehran which included Milad Towers, we finally boarded the plane to Mashhad. We have just landed and I cannot wait to visit the Haram of Imam Ali Redha (AS)! This has been one of my lifetime dreams.

I just want to sincerely thank the organizers of this course in Iran, including the Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania, the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa and The World Federation of KSIMC. May Allah (SWT) bless them abundantly here in this world and in the Hereafter. ameen

As I sit back to reflect and ponder over my unforgettable experience as a mentor supporting the participants of the Madinah and Bab summer course in Iran this year, I couldn’t help but wish that time could turn so that I can repeat the experience all again.

It is so difficult to sum up an experience that had such a great impact on my life in just a few sentences, but if someone had told me that my perspective on life, the way I think, the things I do, and the way I live will all drastically change during the short duration of the course, I would not believe them, but here I am proven wrong.
