Today was the third day of the Bab ul ‘Ilm course for the boys. 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.
It was the second day of class and my first lesson, were we talked about sensitive issues that affected us all. In the second lesson, we went over the remaining four types of Tawheed. These types took less time to explain, and they were interesting. Before I talk about the third lesson, the Shaykh gave us a question to answer yesterday, and the person who gave the correct answer won a prize the next day. Habib Mazaahir submitted an answer and won a Musallah!
The third lesson ended earlier than usual, as we were going to the Haram of Bibi Masuma (AS) to pray Namaz e Jum’ah, the first Jum’ah so far in our trip. The atmosphere was nothing like I had ever experienced before. After Jum’ah and lunch, we went to the park for reflection and we had a small game of football afterwards. Following that, we went to climb Mount Khidr, and in light of the heat, this was really challenging! Finally when we reached the top, we prayed Namaz outside under the sky. The view from the top of the mountain was amazing, especially in the night time, as the city was full of lights. The mountain climbing was probably the highlight of my day. Today was an eventful but tiring day, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming days.

Summary of question
How can one become sure which of the ulema giving advice and lectures are worthy and qualified to so?
We live in a community of hundreds of thousands of Muslims and have many ulema--many of whom we do not believe are qualified. How can a person obtain assurance (or certification) that the ulema that are giving advice and lectures are supported and qualified according to the rules of the Shia faith?
