Meet the Islamic Education mentors on the Madinah and Bab Summer Courses – Part 2

Updated on 12 March 2018

Updated 26 June 2013

This week, we introduce you to two more mentors that have been selected to accompany the group this year.
 
1. Sister Shaheen Dhanji – Stanmore, UK
Shaheen grew up in Dar es Salaam and recently moved to London. A ‘purist’ at heart, she is looking forward to detaching herself from a fast-paced working environment to acquire some spiritual connection within herself and with the Almighty.

Shaheen says: “I am particularly looking forward to the discussions with scholars and the mentees that will help broaden my depth of thinking.”

2. Sister Jerrmein Abu Shahba – New Jersey, USA
Jerrmein Abu Shahba is originally from Egypt and was guided by the grace of Allah (SWT) to the path of the Ahlul Bayt (as). She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology and her master’s degree in Chemistry at Rutgers State University. She is a Research Scientist working in the pharmaceutical industry to support the research and development of drugs for the treatment of diseases. Jerrmein is actively involved in Islamic projects and helps organise annual youth camps with the goal of spreading the pure message of the Ahlul Bayt (as). She contributed as a writer for the Islamic Insights and Voice of Unity magazines, volunteers as an editor for the Islam.org website, and translates Islamic literature.
 
Jerrmein states: “There are no words to properly describe how elated and grateful I am to be granted yet another opportunity to visit the holy land of Qum, to pay my regards to Sayyida Masuma (sa) and her dear brother Imam Ridha (sa) in Mashhad and to participate in a fantastic educational programme where I can serve my fellow Zuwaar. I look forward to this unique opportunity to assist and inspire my peers in embarking on a spiritually awakening and life-changing experience which they will carry back and live on for the rest of their lives. I yearn for the pleasure of sharing with the students precious moments of learning, meeting our divine guides, and engaging in enlightening activities where the bond of Wilayah and Muwaddah to our beloved Ahlul Bayt (as) is further nourished and intensified.”

In February 2013, Islamic Education department of The World Federation launched a competition asking for Madrasah students to suggest a name for its forthcoming book on Salah aimed at Madrasah students in their final classes. The competition was open to existing Madrasah students aged 17 and under.

Mashallah we received an overwhelming response with a total of 134 separate entries from across the world. The entries were of a very impressive level and we would like to congratulate community Madaris and students for being so creative, imaginative and impressive in their entries.


Ayatullah Bashir Najafi was kind enough to allocate a separate time for a meeting at his house. I got chance to sit with him almost for 30 minutes during which we spoke about the different activities of the World Federation of KSIMC and its members.
