Imam Ali (AS) has said: “Live in this world as a traveller, and leave behind you every sweet memory. Indeed we are guests here, and every guest must soon leave.”

Today was Day 5 of the 2014 Madinah and Bab al 'Ilm courses. As usual, we started the day with Fajr Namaz followed by a recitation of the Holy Quran which was then discussed in detail by Sheikh Kumail.
However, today we had no time to sleep again as we set off for our long, tiring 4 hour journey to Hamadan for sight-seeing. During the journey we were blessed to hear some beautiful Qasidas recited by mentors and participants.
When we arrived, we visited a park where we ate our breakfast and then moved on to a massive atmospheric waterfall where we competed as to who could stay under it for the longest time – pretty soon we all became drenched!
With these wet and muddy clothes, we headed for cable cars which took us to a reasonably high altitude mountain which we climbed and scrambled till we got close to the peak. At this point, we started getting a bit tired, forgetting that we had to climb down the mountain too!
After eating some tasty food, we started our next long journey back to the hotel and we arrived late at night. Altogether, today was a very enjoyable day despite of its exhausting nature.
