This trip taught me many things; socialising, bravery, individuality independency, responsibility and to stand up for myself.

Today was the second day of the Bab ul ‘Ilm camp and we started the day with Fajr prayers. After Salaat we had a short Quran recitation read by a scholar. We had a short discussion based on one Ayat which the Shaykh specifically chose that he thought would benefit us.
Today was the start of our classes, we had three classes and each class lasted 45 minutes each. The topics discussed included insight into the concept of Tawheed as we reflected on the proofs for the existence of God. We also looked at the five categories of Tawheed which was something that I have personally not come across before. This was good as one of the reasons I came to this camp was to gain more knowledge. Later on the day after Dhuhrain prayers, we had time with our mentors to reflect on some questions that were given to us.
In the evening we made our way to the Haram Bibi Masuma e Qum (as) to pray Maghrib and ‘Ishaa Salaat. As today was Thursday, we attended the recitation of Dua e Kumail and it was truly a wonderful experience! The Ziyarah was unreal and very overwhelming - Ziyarah has been the best part of the trip for me so far. I am looking forward to visit Masjid Jamkaraan next week InshAllah.

As I sat in the Haram of Bibi Masuma (AS) listening to the moving and heart rending confessions to the Holy Lady (AS), given by brother Amin, I couldn’t stop thinking how lucky I was to be amongst the chosen few to shed a tear out of love of Sayyida Masuma (AS).
