Attending this course was a golden opportunity for me to attain spiritual upliftment and gain lots of Islamic education, along with meeting girls from various countries, and everyone had something interesting to share!
The course was all about learning from each other and getting to know different opinions and thoughts which indeed was very informative and useful. Not forgetting, we had a lot of fun on the side too, and had time for sports as well! I must say it was a very unique 'two-in-one' experience, of both a ziyarah trip where we would get to go to the haram both in Mashhad and Qum day in day out, along with classes delivered by various learned scholars.
The mentors also did a great job in guiding us well throughout the whole trip, solving any issues that came about.
Moreover, we had field trips too, such as going to the Milaad towers, Ebrat Museum in Tehran, which brought more fun and flavour to our trip! And the 30 minute climb up Mount Khizr on a Friday morning where we recited Dua-e Nudbah followed by a superb breakfast, was a lovely experience on its own.
The outskirt ziyarats such as Shah Abdul Azeem, Chehl Akhtaran, Grave and house of Imam Khomeini, visiting the Imam Zadehs, Nishapour, and going to Masjid-e Jamkaran for Dua-e Tawassul was Mashallah very enlightening!
A tour round the haram of Imam Reza (as) by Shaykh Kumail was a very interesting one.
Overall, this course has been indeed an inspiring one, and I must say I would totally recommend The World Federation’s course to my friends and relatives, so that they could also get such an opportunity!

Who, from among all mischief-making and blood-thirsty people, have hurt innocent people more than the Wahhabis and their offshoots, the Salafis and Takfiris?"
The author has written an essay about the founder of Wahhabism, Muhammed ibn Abdul-Wahhab
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.
