On Thursday, 13th November 2014, The World Federation India Office organised a Group Discussion Session with the Youth of Mumbai. Shaikh Kumail Rajani - Head of the Islamic Education Department - was the speaker for the session.
The interactive session was attended by 16 participants and lasted for 2 hours, followed by a Q&A on the topic of The 7 Stages of Nafs.
Kashif, an attendee, expressed his gratitude with these words: “Thanks for getting this lecture arranged. It was really a session for Ibrat for me. JazakAllah!”
“The topic was very new for me and I got lots of insight on different types of nafs,” said Murtuza, another young participant. “It helped me to analyse where I am currently and how to move to a better position.”
Asad Virani, Manager of India Office, promised to hold more such events. “As per the request of the youth, such sessions will be held on regular basis, insha’Allah, especially since we have shifted to a new and bigger office facility,” he said.

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!
3 weeks away from home was quite a challenging thought at first as I'd never stayed away from my family for so long; but it was exciting!
We were picked up from Imam Khomeini Airport at dawn by our mentors and driven to Qum. Our stay at Jamia-tuz-Zahra was marvellous. It was a home away from home. The mentors were amazing; they listened and advised as older sisters do.
The classes were very motivating; a kind of encouragement to look at the brighter side of life and knowledge that will last a lifetime.
