We all woke up well and proceeded to the Haram of Lady Masuma (AS) for Fajr prayers. It was a humbling experience to perform our prayers in the Holy Mosque. 

Our classes began as usual at 10 in the morning. I personally enjoyed the lessons because they were directly touching our day lives. Most notably was the lesson titled 'Keys to Successful Adulthood' delivered by Br. Rajabali Alidina. In today’s lesson, I learnt about the role of a friend and how they influence our lives. I also learnt that any relation with a lady should be based on need and nothing else.

After prayers and a delicious lunch, we went to the Ansariyan Publications bookstore where we had an opportunity to purchase books on Shi'ism.

The next stop was at Imam Khomeini’s house in Qum. Here we learned about the impact of Imam Khomeini in the establishment of a fully Islamic state and how we can benefit from his noble teachings.

The other amazing place we visited was the famous Ayatollah Marashi's Library. We learnt about his contribution in modern time Islam.

Interestingly, our day had started at Lady Fatimah Masuma's Haram and it ended there when we went to perform the Maghrib and Ishaa prayers followed by the Ziyarat of the Holy Lady Masuma. It was very touching as we sought Lady Masuma's intercession on Judgment Day as she has great status in the eyes of Allah (SWT).

Back at our residence we had a great dinner and we played different games. 

May Allah (SWT) bless the organizers of this Iran Summer Course!
