Our day started with Fajr Namaz then taken through an insightful session on some verses of the Holy Quran by Shaykh Kumail Rajani. It has become our norm to recite some verses immediately after Fajr.
After breakfast, we went through class sessions which took us till about half an hour till Dhuhr prayers. We then had lunch. This was followed by reflection session where we were asked to give our opinion on gender segregation. Most of the participants gave out similar opinions.
Today is a day that we all have been looking forward to. In the afternoon we all went to play football at a nearby ground and we had plenty of fun!
After Ishaa prayers we were privileged to meet Ayatullah Ibrahim Amin. He advised us to spend our youthful time and energy in the service of Allah (SWT). Ayatullah Ibrahim Amin acknowledged the challenges we are going through, especially the challenges on social media etc., however he advised us to stay firm on the right path and to maintain our principles. He reminded us that we are the soldiers of Islam and therefore the community is in need of us.
After performing the Ziyarat of Lady Masuma, we went to Bama Restaurant for dinner followed by ice cream afterwards. Alhamdulillah, it is a day well spent!
Written by: Muhammad Darver Malik from UK
For a girl who lives in a Sunni-majority country, having an opportunity to embark on this type of journey and Ziyarah was a once in a lifetime experience.
