We began the day at Fajr, some of the students went to the Haram to pray, as this has been an option available for us. In the morning, after breakfast, we had our classes.
In our first class we learnt about how to prepare for university life while incorporating our religion into it. We learnt how to plan our day to day life throughout university and about incorporating a little bit of everything to balance our life throughout university.
In our second lesson we learnt about the different types of Nafs: about Nafs al Ammara and how it can deviate you from the right path, and how it uses tricks to make you commit sins. Also we learnt about Nafs al Lawwama that how it makes you realise that you have committed a sin during or after you have committed it.
After classes we prayed Zuhr namaz followed by lunch and our reflection time. The topic for reflection was 'Should we limit ourselves talking to na mahram women? 'We had a small debate about it which shall be continued tomorrow.
We then got ourselves ready and we left to go for some shopping. After shopping and we visited the graves of Hazrat Zakariya ibn Adam and Ibn Babawayh, where we had a short majlis and remembered the tragedy of Bibi Zahra (as).
After we prayed maghrib namaz and we listened to the beautiful Dua Kumayl in the Haram of Bibi Ma'sumah (as).

As I sit back to reflect and ponder over my unforgettable experience as a mentor supporting the participants of the Madinah and Bab summer course in Iran this year, I couldn’t help but wish that time could turn so that I can repeat the experience all again.
Entering into the Holy City of Qum and feeling a blast of spirituality and peace. Home-coming and contentment.
Waking up to the melody of the beautiful Munajaat of Imam Ali (a.s.) followed by the Adhaan of Fajr.
Witnessing a glorious sunrise while listening to Dua e Ahad. Praying Salaat in Jam'ah.
Witnessing the gorgeous and peaceful gardens of Jamia-tuz Zahra as night softly falls and moonlight brightens the night around.
