The major part of the intensive short course is held in the city of Qum, in a youth accommodation with excellent classroom, sports and catering facilities. Alongside their classes, participants will get to visit different places and personalities, play sports and socialise with fellow students and mentors. The last few days of the course will take place in the holy city of Mashhad, where the participants will be accompanied by a number of mentors and teachers, a further opportunity to profit from the presence of Hawzah students and benefit from their knowledge through classes and discussions.
Alongside the intellectual aspect of the course, the participants will benefit from the spirituality of doing ziarah both in Qum and Mashhad. The ziarah of the 8th Holy Imam (a) at the end of the course will be a great way to end a journey of knowledge and spirituality by making a covenant with the Imam to start our life afresh under the teachings of the Quran and the Ahlul Bayt. Throughout the course, participants will also be taught the main principles of Islamic spirituality, in light of the teaching of the Ahlul Bayt, through the words of great and known spiritual teachers.
