Meet the mentors on the Madinah & Bab Summer Course 2014 – Part 1

Updated on 12 March 2018

Over the next few weeks, we will be introducing you to the mentors that have been selected to accompany the group this year.
 
Brother Ali Mehdi Moti – Birmingham, UK

Alimehdi is currently studying Pharmacy at Keele University and has just finished his third year. When he completes his degree, he is looking forward to the challenges of working in this important part of the healthcare system.

Alimehdi is an active member of the Birmingham Jamaat. Since 2008 till present he has served on the Secretariat team of the Jamaat where he has taken on responsibilities such as organising the running of Jamaat events. He has also been involved in the Abbasi Youth Committee and has been teaching Qur’an, Fiqh and Akhlaq at the Muhammadi Madrasah for the past four years.

Alimehdi says, “Having been on the course as a participant four years ago, and as a mentor last year, I am extremely grateful to once again have this opportunity to go as a mentor. It is an honour to be able to serve the visitors of Imam Ridha and Lady Ma’sumah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon them both) as well as getting the chance to visit these great personalities myself. I pray that this course will be personally and spiritually uplifting for both the participants and mentors alike.

Brother Ammar Nyawa Ndoro – Mombasa, Kenya

Ammar is married and has two sons. Ammar completed a diploma in Mass Communication (Radio & Television) at Mombasa Technical University. He is currently working with Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya as the head of the multimedia department.

Ammar’s favourite subject is Islamic history and he is also interested in furthering his knowledge of Fiqh.

Ammar says, “I intend to go for the Qum Summer Course in Iran because besides gaining more knowledge and exposure, I will also get ideas and perspectives that will reflect in the production of video and radio programmes hence reaching many people. Being a mentor, I am also looking forward to making new friends and building new networks.

Sunnat or Innovation?

The books of Islamic laws and traditions of both Shias and Ahle Sunnat mention innumerable recommended prayers. Some of the prayers exceed a thousand units. The prayer of Tarawih is among the recommended prayers of the Ahle Sunnat and it is performed in congregation in the nights of Ramazan at an estimated twenty units daily.


The day started off with Fajr Namaaz and a short recitation of The Holy Quran by one of the participants. Shaykh Kumail picked one verse from what was recited and the verse was analyzed. This session was similar to that of yesterdays, and was interesting.


After breakfast we left for the Ali-Sadr Cave. The cave is around 115 million years old and is one of the only caves in the world that has such a large lake inside it. The lake is 13km in length. We took a boat ride around the lake - the scenery was out of this world!
