After a warm welcome at the airport and Jamiat uz Zahra - a home to all of us in Qum, we were excitingly waiting for, firstly, the Ziyarat of the holy Shrine of Hazrat e Masuma (s.a) and secondly, with her barakah, to begin the mentor development program (MDP). Alhamdulillah, we had a good rest before we started the next day in full swing.

This week, we introduce you to one more mentor that has been selected to accompany the group this year.
1. Sister Ruiya Salim – Mombasa, Kenya
Ruiya Salim is 33 years old. She is married with two young children. Ruiya studies at Zahra Madrassa, and also teaches there every week. Ruiya is a Muballigha, and recites in Muharram in the Bilal rural centres. Her favourite subjects are Fiqh and Tafseer e Qur’an.
Ruiya states: “I am looking forward to joining this course because, apart from being a mentor, I will get the opportunity to gain more knowledge and interact with others. I hope to learn more and use the knowledge back home to educate others and thus improve myself and others spiritually.”
