Madinah and Bab – Boys Daily Blog – Monday 18th August, 2014

We have five days left in this amazing trip. So far it has been one of the best trips I have ever been on. 

Today was my birthday and it was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. Even though I was away from my family, I had an amazing birthday, thanks to the organizers, mentors and the participants for making it one of the best birthdays I have had!

Today we went to the Holy Haram of Imam Redha (AS) and I felt the immediate effect when entering the gates of the Haram. It was amazing to see thousands of Shia Muslims gathered around a very special personality who is Imam Ar-Redha (AS). 

In the evening we went back to the Haram and started our reflection group. It was interesting to hear what everyone had to say about the experience overall and how they felt coming to the holy city of Mashhad. I have only got about 4 more days here in Mashhad and I am going to try and make the most of it.

The Madinah and Bab al-Ilm Iran programme marked its 14th consecutive anniversary in the summer of 2016, with this being the first time that I decided to embark upon the course following my university education. This was also the first ever year in the programme that participants were bestowed the honour of being guests in the holy city of Qom for the birth anniversary of Sayeda Masouma (sa), as well as being in Mashhad for the corresponding celebrations for Imam Ridha (as).
