Madinah and Bab 2013: ‘I recommend everyone to experience it’

Posted on Mon, 2014-03-03 06:12

The Madinah and Bab summer course of 2013 enabled me to gain further knowledge on various topics and about the Ahlul Bayt. Most importantly I was able to seek inspiration from scholars and different places which were visited. This journey was something that not only I was able to cherish whilst being there but until today I feel like I’m living with the experience/memories of yesterday.

An opportunity like this is something that I would use wisely to make changes within myself as for me it has been a life-changing experience. Although I had been to Iran before had I just felt like it was my first time doing ziyarat and being in Iran; it made me feel like I had missed out on so much on the previous trips.

Just knowing a bit more about the Ahlul Bayt allowed me to have a stronger relationship with them. If an opportunity like this arises for me again no doubt would I take it as the previous trips helped me to become the person I am today. This spiritual journey was something I recommend everyone to experience as it’s hard to express into words.
