The Barriers in Writing


Hello, my blog!

Hello, my friends!

Hello, world!


I was absent for two months from blogging. Why?!

There’re so many reasons why I didn’t write anything here.

I’ll write about some barriers those I recently got in writing.

  • Lazy

This’s the main factor why I didn’t write. Although I was busy, if I forced myself to write, I could write something in my blog. 🙂

  • Thinking before writing

Sometimes, I do that. Too much wasting the times for thinking about the idea, about grammar, about English and etc. When will I write if I always feel worry about them.

  • Comparing my writing with others.

Masya Allah, others are good. They have talent at writing. They have good thinking, they have great idea….. they have…….  😀

I shouldn’t do this. 🙂

What else?

I can’t focus in writing for long time! Really??!

I think you can, Fatma!  Act now!! 🙂

Let’s Fulfill Our Hearts With Qur’an

Let’s fulfill our hearts with Qur’an

I’m so excited to memorize Qur’an in this Ramadhan.  I believe in Allah that He’ll help me and all Muslims in memorizing this Holy Book.

Next,  I’ll share my ways in memorizing Qur’an.  Insha’Allah.
Thank you for reading and viewing my short post.


Art Lover

I love art, but hey I’m not an artist.  I’m interested in Painting, calligraphy, graffiti, and hand lettering art design. I’d love to learn more about those arts. I do it for refreshing and mastering my hands skill, and not for getting dollars, LOL!

I enjoyed every process of those activities, and I’d say coloring using pens, markers, and paints are more interesting than using paint applications in PC or smartphone.

The main reason why I love art, because I always get more fresh and find happiness there. My brain, my mind become fresh.

And how about you, guys!

Art Lover. (I’m trying to insert my pics into my post, so I can improve my hand skill here)

Marhaban yaa Ramadhan


Marhaban yaa Ramadhan

Marhaban yaa syahro shiyamii

Insha’Allah, tomorrow Muslims in my country and maybe some other countries will start fasting. Alhamdulillah, Allah has given us chance to meet with this holy month.

What’s Ramadhan? Let’s Qur’an explain about it. Here are some verses about Ramadhan.




May Allah accept our fasting and all our good deeds in this Ramadhan, Ameen!

The New Name of my Blog


This time I’ll write a short post, to inform you that I have changed my blog name. Yeah, I feel that I must change it. If you ask me the reason, the word Ishlah is so complex. I’m not a good person, only trying to be better. I always say like that.

I like the word Qolam. It means pen. It’s inspired from the name of surah Al-Qolam which I’m trying to memorize this surah. Masha’Allah with Qolam (our pen) we can share our ideas, express our feelings and presenting a lot of things to many people and world. I do love this word. So, here is my new blog name. After this, I have to change the logo and etc. I enjoy it. Me time!!    🙂

National Examinations For Elementary School

This week is a busy week for students and teachers in Elementary Schools. They just faced the final exam/ national exam (16th-18th may). I was chosen as one of the supervisors at my school. My friends and I had duty to supervise in other school. It isn’t far from ours.

We suggested the students to do the test honestly and carefully.  They were nice students. During the exams, while supervising them I observed their classes. I saw many pictures hanging on the wall. Those were painted by the students. Masya Allah. They have good ability at drawing.

In the last day, I met the student who has good talent at drawing. I talked with her and her friends. She’s a smart student too.

Alhamdulillah, a nice experience that I got there.

Here are the pictures of them, the students of class six in SDN Bojong Koneng Cibadak, Sukabumi.

The first day, Mr Mulki and I supervised in the 2nd room.


The second day, in the 3rd room






The last day, in the 1st room


I got it from Rival. His graffiti is awesome.
And this from Medy.


Thanks my little friends!

Where Can I Find The Honesty?

Honesty is a scarce thing in my country.

Where can I find the honesty?
Nowadays,  I don’t find it at  schools, at campus, at police offices,at hospitals, at public markets, even at some religious places.
It’s awkward!

“The honesty ” is very difficult to find in exams especially in national examinations.
It’s shameful!

That’s the root of this problem!
The Indonesian Government should change the system of the national education.  Change the purpose of national exams,  and the main thing is to change the purpose of national education.

The system makes the students learn only for getting the high result.  Some of them did bad ways doing the tests. And I’ve seen with my eyes the teachers help the students correcting their answers. I can’t believe it, but it was true.

I don’t have power to change the system and I don’t have the authority to reform it. What I can do is to suggest and to teach the students about honesty, I’ll do it to all my students and my son. I won’t support deceitfulness in anything and I’ll against it as I can do, with my words and my action.

It’s the darkness in Indonesian education. I hope it will be better in the future.

Back to my question above, “Where can I find the honesty?”

Should I go to the jungle to find it? If I found it there , I’ll share it to the students, teachers, the headmasters and to my government.

To all stakeholders especially in education, please correct the system and manage it well. Do the best to get good quality in education.

And to all the students where ever you are, please study hard and do every tests squarely. Do smart and do the best for your study!


There was little problem with this post, I edited it more than twice, alhamdulillah I’ve fixed it. 

Would love to hear about your experience in exam when you were students. Please share with us here!

Thank you for reading!
