Today has been a wonderful day for me. It is a day that the Madinah & Bab Summer Course participants were saying their farewells to the Holy City of Qum. Early in the morning we left for Tehran.
My visit to the Holy Shrine of Imam Khomeini was perhaps the peak of my day. Listening to Shaykh Kumail Rajani give an account of the Imam's life and his struggle in bringing about the Islamic Revolution of Iran, I felt inspired in so many ways!
I learned that success comes after a clear vision and patience. Imam Khomeini demonstrated that through the many difficulties he was subjected to by the then government of Shah, including multiple exiles.
Another very important lesson I got from the Imam's life was his view on humanity, irrespective of religion or race. According to Shaykh Kumail, while in France Imam Khomeini gave gifts to Christians during the Christmas season.
So, after an exciting tour of the city of Tehran which included Milad Towers, we finally boarded the plane to Mashhad. We have just landed and I cannot wait to visit the Haram of Imam Ali Redha (AS)! This has been one of my lifetime dreams.
I just want to sincerely thank the organizers of this course in Iran, including the Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania, the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa and The World Federation of KSIMC. May Allah (SWT) bless them abundantly here in this world and in the Hereafter. ameen
