Today is the 14th day of the Bab Al ‘Ilm course of 2014. Where do I start, from the awesome trip to the Water Park or the amazing recitation of Dua Tawassul in the Haram of Imam Ar-Redha (AS)! 

Let me start off with the inspiring, eye opening lesson that was conducted by Shaykh Kumail Rajani. One aspect of the class that really made me reflect was the discussion of poetic licensing of our Matam, Manqabat and Qasidas. Shaykh shared with us a variety of different examples where some pieces of poetry have gone a step too far. From this I have realized that more attention needs to be paid to the literal meaning of the Matam, Manqabat and Qasidas that are written.

Later on that day we departed the hotel to have a very much needed break at one of the finest water parks in Mashhad. This was an experience I will never forget as my mentor Alihussein Jaffer launched me into the pool using his "super strength" where I got confused and lost touch with reality within that short amount of time! During my time in the air I pondered about how somebody could do that to another human being, but as my face hit the water, I realized that it was all banter. 

Moving on to the climax of the day, I felt blessed with the opportunity to experience the beautiful recitation of  Dua Tawassul read in the Haram of Imam Ar-Redha (AS). This was a very special moment for me as I've never established such a strong connection with any other Dua. The atmosphere was out of this world and I would do anything to experience this again. May I be blessed with another opportunity to experience this supplication again.

They said it was going to be fun. They said I was going to make new friends, they said that I would experience new things, and above all, they said that I would not want to leave. But that was all an understatement – they had no idea.
