My decision to attend the Madinah and Bab course was spontaneous. Having made the decision to apply, I prayed to the Almighty (SWT) to allow me to visit His Holy Imam Ar-Redha and Sayyeda Masuma (AS) once again.

On Thursday, we woke up at 4.45 am and prayed Salatul Fajr. My friend and I stayed up to watch the sun rise while sitting near the water fountain. The sun rise was amazing Mashallah!
Breakfast started at 8am and our classes began at 10am. Our first class was with Sayyed Kazmi and in this class we learnt about our good and bad habits. E.g. – 95% of what we achieve and loose is directly linked to our good and bad habits.
We also learned how to erase our bad habits by diagnosing it and confronting the source and doing Tawassul.
The topic we covered with Sister Najiya in our second class was about Imam Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance). In this class we discussed about the importance of Imam Mahdi and whether we are ready for his reappearance. I enjoyed this class a lot as Sister Najiya made this class very engaging.
Our last class was with Shaykh Khalfan and the topic we covered was on Life and the different meanings of ‘Abd (servant).
At 7pm, a few of us went to the Haram and the rest went swimming. When we reached the Haram, we were split into groups and performed our Ziyarat of Bibi Masuma (as). After praying Maghrib and 'Ishaa Salaat, we recited Dua Kumail under the night sky. This was something I had always been looking forward to, which turned out to be a very unique experience!
I cannot wait for what else this course has in store for us Inshallah!
