We attended classes in the Haram. One of the things that touched me was to see how Ma'moon killed his brother Amin just because of greed for power. Ma'moon then went ahead and killed Imam Redha (a.s) so that he could monopolize power.
The lesson I got from all these inhumane behaviors of Ma'moon is that politics is not a good career if one does not have religious knowledge and fear of God.
After the classes, my fellow participants and I were privileged to get an invitation for lunch by Imam Redha (AS). It was a great honor; I felt that our Imam (AS) loved us all irrespective of our geographical or racial backgrounds.
In the evening, I became one of those who attended the huge congregation of believers reciting Dua Kumail at the main Courtyard of the Haram of Imam Redha (AS)

On Monday we were up by 8AM for breakfast at Ali-Sadr hotel near Hamadan. We left shortly afterwards for Ghear-e-Ali Sadr which is the largest cave containing water in the whole world.
Once we had reached, we split up into groups and got into smaller boats, which took us deeper into the cave. It was beautiful! The water was so clear we could see right through it. After a few minutes we reached a small opening where we got out of the boats and were spoken to by a tour guide.
As I sat in the Haram of Bibi Masuma (AS) listening to the moving and heart rending confessions to the Holy Lady (AS), given by brother Amin, I couldn’t stop thinking how lucky I was to be amongst the chosen few to shed a tear out of love of Sayyida Masuma (AS).
