As eager as I was to rush inside and get as close as possible to Imam Ar-Redha’s Shrine as I could, I stood outside for a while; contemplating.

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.
Wessex Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat hosted participants of the Diocesan Inspire Course at Al Mahdi Centre for a round table conversation. The Co-ordinator Marion Syms has penned the following report of this visit:
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.
