The story of Prophet Yusuf (a.s.) is famous and timeless. This story has been highlighted by the Almighty Himself in the Qur’an as one of the best examples of principle, modesty and true love – that for Allah (SWT).

Today is the 16th of August and our 12th day in the Holy city of Qum attending the Bab Al 'Ilm course 2014.
The days have been passing by quickly whilst we have been gaining a great deal of knowledge from our mentors, teachers, as well as Shaykh Kumail Rajani.
Our day started with Fajr prayers at the Haram of Bibi Masuma-e-Qum (as). After coming back and having a much needed nap and breakfast, we got ready for the day ahead which brought knowledge and spiritual enlightenment. After our daily classes and Dhuhrain prayers, we listened to Quran recitation and Tafseer lead by Syed Hassan Razavi. We carried on with a reflection session also lead by Syed about how beneficial our daily classes have been. As agreed by all, we have learnt a great deal as gained a lot of knowledge from the teachers as well as many things that we could relate to as teenagers living in the western world.
As today was our last day in the Holy city of Qom, we attended Maghribain Salaat at the Haram as well as performed our last Ziyarat of Bibi Masuma (AS) for this trip. Today's last Ziyarat contained a feeling that cannot be described with words. A secret of the Ziyarat of Bibi Masuma (AS) was shared to us by Syed which showed us what high status Bibi Masuma (AS) had in the eyes of Allah (SWT) which made the Ziyaratul Widaa' much more spiritually enlightening. Our day ended with a great dinner from Bama which we also had to unfortunately say goodbye to until the next time.
