“I’m a teacher, and I hope you’ll be a good teacher my daughter!” said my Dad.
“I’m sorry, Dad! I don’t love teaching. I have other dream. I wanna be a secretary.”
“No problem! You have freedom to improve yourself. Our prayers for you!”

It was a simple dialogue between my Dad and I 17 years ago. I do remember it well. I was 19 years in that time, and I was immature. I thought that I’d be different with my father. I really didn’t like teaching. Standing in front of the students, teach them, weren’t my dream.

After finishing my senior high school, I got many brochures from a few universities, but I didn’t accept their offerings. I had to see the budget for my education, and I didn’t want to burden my parents with my university cost. In the end, I accepted my parent’s suggestion to continue my study to Institute Dirosah Al-Islamiyah Al-Amien, Madura East Java. I lived and learned there. Guess, what I learned there! I learned Islamic teaching….Yes, teaching method , dear friends. He…he.

Time by time, my dream has changed. I tried to love teaching activity. I had ever been asked by a mentor from CNI about my dream. I answered proudly, “I want to be a good educator!”

My dream became true! Alhamdulillah!

Before joined to Ad-da’wah where I teach at, I had ever hunted other jobs to many factories, and all my applications were rejected. 😀
The securities of a factory (I don’t remember the name of that factory) said to me after reading and checking my application, “The suitable job for you is teaching, because your writing, your language and your intelligence have told us that you’re like a teacher.”
I’m a teacher, and I love my job. I love my students and so do they.
I joined to Ad-da’wah in 2006-2012. I left it for 2 years to accompany and to teach my son at home. Then I’m back again to school (my job) till now.
I believe in Allah, I got it because of the prayers of my parents and Allah has accepted their prayers. Alhamdulillah! (All praise is due to Allah)

A little note: My dad became a teacher for 40 years. He had passed away in August 9th, 2014.
My prayer for him always!

  1. Oh I’m sad to hear about our dad, Allah yarhamo.
    He surely was proud of you!
    As I already said, if I had to work, I would be a teaher as well but alhamdoulillah I’m the teacher of my son. I think you make the most beautiful job ever!
    May Allah protect you sis ❤️

  3. This is beautiful that you have shared your feelings here. I guess teaching is not a profession, it is a passion. Your father knew that and I admire his long service of forty years. Your intentions are pure and your are sincere with your profession. May Allah give you success in every path of your life (Ameen).
