Day 5 started with classes facilitated by Professor Sheriff who taught us about Zanzibar. We learned about the Zanzibar culture and Stone Town history which made us understand our surroundings better.
Maalim Alijawad lead a lesson about communication and its’ three main components: the sender, the receiver and the message itself. The terrace, which accommodated 2 groups, was an amazing location to take in the lesson with the sound of the ocean wafting in.
Maalim Aliasgher Rajani explained the importance of having friends which is a topic that is much needed considering our age. He also explained Quranic verses and its’ effects on our day to day life.
We had water polo, cross team football tournaments and a blind obstacle course which helped us with our collaboration skills and the connection between team members.
We ended the day by celebrating Eid Mubahila, with a speech from Hussein Chagani. We also had recitations of Munajat and Quran from Abbas, Armaanally, Zain, Husseinali and Mahdi.
Mentor Diary – Wednesday, 12th July 2023
Today was a fun filled and fantasic day for the campers as they are beginning to settle in completely and absorb the environment with loads of fun.
The day started off with Fajr Salaat and Sheikh Shirazi’s enlightening words to brighten the morning.
The campers had their classes with Brother Ali Asghar who gave them a talk on choosing the right friends followed by a special guest, Professor Sheriff who taught them about the history of Zanzibar to increase their general knowledge about where they are.
This was followed by Lunch where the campers had a filling meal followed by Quran recitation with the mentors, where they practiced their tajweed and fluency.
The campers had an amazing and athletic afternoon with football, water polo, volleyball in the pool, and 2 obstacle courses one of which was blind-folded; this allowed them to test their communication and hearing skills.
After Maghribain Namaz there was a small jashan for Eid E Mubahila where many of the campers got opportunities to recite quran, manqabats and ziyarat.
