With three days to go, we wanted to make the most of the trip to Nishapour. That was the destination of our two hour journey, and in order to spend the majority of the day in Nishapour, we had to wake up at 7AM, earlier than usual. 

On arrival, we visited the grave of Lady Shatita, an inspirational lady who had so little yet gained the respect of our 7th Imam Al Kadhem (AS). After praying Dhuhr Namaaz there, we ate lunch and enjoyed ice cream. Thereafter, we visited two respected Imam Zadeh, and we saw the footprints of Imam Ar-Redha (AS) printed on a stone. After paying respect to these Holy Shrines, we had a brief Matam session in honor of the Imam Zadeh and Imam Hussein (AS). 

Our next destination was where another pair of Imam's footsteps was engraved and also a spring of water which the Imam made miraculously. This was also the place where the golden narration of Tawheed was narrated. All in all, this place was of great Islamic significance and a fabulous place to visit. All the boys filled up as many water bottles of the Holy Spring as they could, as it is said to have many healing qualities. This was the final trip of the day and we embarked on the two-hour journey back to Mashhad. It was a full day which tired us all out, yet it was a day in which we learnt a lot.
