Posted on Wed, 2014-06-11 20:19

Brother Kumail Shariff – Birmingham, UK

Kumail was born in Mombasa, Kenya, where he completed his high school education. He also completed the Duke of Edinburgh award in Kenya, where he climbed Mount Kenya for the gold award and was distinguished by being the youngest person to ever climb the mountain.

Kumail then moved to the UK and went on to complete his undergraduate degree in Mathematics at Kings college, London.

Kumail says, “I attended the Madinah course in 2006 as a participant, and really gained a lot. I would like to give back what I received and hope to do just that. I am looking forward to spending quality time with the boys and learn from them as well as give back to them.”

Sister Mohaddisa Jaffer – Peterborough, UK

After completing her schooling, Mohaddisa pursued a degree in Arabic and Development Studies. She then felt the need to make a dramatic change and dedicate the next part of her life to the study of Islam. She took the bold step of relocating to Najaf, Iraq to be in the holy proximity of Imam Ali (as).

Mohaddisa says, “The harams of the Imams (as) are really the most spiritually charged places on earth! I'm looking forward to sharing this coming journey with my mentees and I pray that we form a strong sisterhood, helping each other make the most out of this beautiful, life-changing experience."
