I woke up for Fajr this morning and soon after the CoEJ participants arrived. As I was sleeping, they ate their breakfast and went to sleep. The morning was quiet as the CoEJ boys rested after their tiring journey and woke up at Dhuhr time. After lunch, everyone showered and got ready for the afternoon's activities.
At about 4pm, we were placed into our mentee groups and given our books and equipment for the course. In return, we gave in our mobile phones and other valuables for safekeeping. We then had a short ice breaker session to get to know each other and after that our mentor Sayyid Hasan gave an inspiring talk on the philosophy of Ziyarat to prepare us for our first Ziyarat.
The opening ceremony started with the recitation of the Quran by myself, followed by Qasidas, which were recited by Alihussein, and finally speeches by two mentors along with Shaykh Kumail Rajani. We were then served tasty pilau for dinner and headed to the Haram of Bibi Masuma (as) for a heart rendering Ziyarat and Maghribain Salaat. Upon return, we all retired early to bed ready to start classes the next morning.
