Madinah and Bab – Boys Daily Blog – Sunday 10th August, 2014

Updated on 12 March 2018

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.

Applying for the Madinah and Bab course this year was the best decision of my life. It has now been a month since I returned from Iran but every day I think about those treasured and valued 18 days that I spent with my fellow participants and mentors.

Read the Ashura message fro Shaykh Murtadha Alidina.

The announcement of the publication of this work was awaited eagerly. A twenty years wait for a new edition raises the question if the wait was worthwhile.
