Two years with WordPress

Assalamu’alaikum everyone,
I hope you always enjoy your days! 🙂
Just wanted to share this pic on my blog,  yeah for this chance I only post a short post.  I just received it from wordpress,  thank you!


I admitted since I was back to school,  I can’t post everyday.  I only wrote a few posts each month. Everything need time,  and I don’t have much time for blogging,  but I promise whenever I get chance to log in to my dashboard,  I’ll make a post.  I have some topics,  but still in my brain, and I must write them soon, if not  they’ll be gone.  😁

Till here,  see you next!  ☁💟💟☁

Day One: Introduce Yourself to the World

Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog


Alhamdulillah a new writing challenge just come. It’s Blogging 101.
In the first day, I’ve to introduce myself to the world. I think you’ve known who I am, what I am and where I’m from. You can read about me on page “About Me.” I’m very glad that I’ve connected with some awesome bloggers via my blog and on social media. So, should I introduce myself again here?

I decided to tell you why I’m here. I’ve written more times in my earlier posts that I’m an English learner. I love English/ Arabic besides my language. I also love writing and art so much. Here, I want to combine all my (ordinary) abilities become posts and share them in my blog.

I’ve written various topics, such as Islamic knowledge, family, writing, blogging, stories of Indonesians and so on. As a learner, I’ll explore my writing ability. I won’t to stop to write anyhow when I get a problem with my devices. I’ll keep my writing activity, if I can’t connect to internet maybe I’ll save my draft post in my PC then publish it in other time.

I knew there are so many new bloggers that started their blogging fantastically. They have a huge followers and good feedback from other bloggers. FANTASTICO! I really admire their works!

Now, back to myself, okay take it easy. Do blogging step by step and regularly. I hope I’ll get my goals soon here. Ameen! Everything is begun from the step one. From Zero to Hero! (I really love this motto!)

By the way, if you feel interest to connect with me personally, you can add me on Fb (I’m rare there) or other social media, or just email me. Please see my “Contact Me!” And if you don’t mind we can connect freely there. Actually I use Google+, Facebook, Whatsapp, and Viber. But, I’m mostly on blog and Whatsapp. (I’ll share my whatsapp and my viber number with you if you ask me via email).   🙂
I think it’s enough for this time, C U at class (Blogging 101) tomorrow, insha’Allah!

Ishlah: One Year in Blogging

السلام  عليكم  ورحمة  الله  وبركاته

بارك  الله  فيكم



Ishlah: One year in blogging
Ishlah: One year in blogging

I’m like a baby in blogging community. In the first time, I was confused in choosing the name, theme and the mission for my blog.

English is not my language, and I’m not good at it.

Luckily, my first online friend (an American muslima) guided and taught me well about blogging and English. Alhamdulillah!  Little by little I could walk here. 😀  She was my first follower, my first English online teacher. (I’m sorry Sis Corbin, I’m not a smart student! Jazakillah khoir for everything!)

Through blogging, I admit that I have gotten many awesome friends (I apologize I can’t mention you one by one here). If you don’t mind please read my post about it here: You are my amazing friends! , You Are Awesome! , The Wonderful Quotes of Friendship.

As an English learner, my main purpose in blogging is for improving my English. The other purposes are for improving my writing and sharing my little knowledge about Islam. (I have said many…many times, I hope you don’t fell bored to read it) LOL! As a muslima I’ve to keep my words for good thing, because Allah will ask our words. We have known “Words are sharper than Sword!”

I’m like a baby who needs loves and warm hugs from my parents. Here, really I need feedback for my posts. Alhamdulillah, you always support me my dear friends. I’m so blessed to have you all!

Till this time, I’ve posted 174 posts and I’ve reblogged  9 posts from other blogs. I’ve received many followers, likers, and comments. Yeah, for a baby like me, it isn’t good enough, because I saw others have improved highly in the first time on WordPress. Started from Zero, I hope I’ll be a Hero!

Actually, I only spent one to two hours for blogging each day and sometimes only one hour. I have some reasons for that. I have to divide my times well, for my family, for my work, for my soul, and for blogging! When I have chance to do blogging, I usually copy my writing from my PC then paste into my dashboard, then publish it, then log out. I checked the other blog posts from mailbox using my phone, liked and commented there.

I’m like a baby for writing 101, because I knew it so lately. Yeah, here are my words to support myself, “Better late than none,” and “Never late to learn.” I feel writing is my habits now, Alhamdulillah! So many things I want to share (something beneficial) to others. By following this writing course, I really hope I can sharpen my writing skill and my English. I have ever read and heard from others, someone needs 10.000 hours to become an expert in one thing. Today was one year in blogging, if I spent 2 hours each day so I have learned writing and English about 720 hours. Well, I need 9.280 hours again. I have to add my hours for learning it, more and less 6 hours per day. Wow! 6 hours!! I’ll try to do it!  😀

By following Writing 101, Alhamdulillah I met a few Indonesian bloggers and I met an English woman (Bali info) but she lives in Indonesia. She can speak Bahasa Indonesia fluently.  Amazing!

In this gold occasion, from my deep heart, I wanted to say “Thank you very much for your amazing supports those you have given to me. I’m really glad become your family in this WordPress. It’d be interesting if someday we can meet together in nice place and in nice time, hopefully. Insha’Allah (God willing!)

Luv you all my dear friends! May Allah bless you always! ❤


I’m like a baby

I need loves,


And care.



I get all

Thank you

Please hold my hands

And guide me

How to walk

I’m ready to learn from you!

Writing Is Writing, Just Keep Writing

Hello WordPress!
Assalamu’alaikum my dear friends!
I hope you are always fine!

It has been 6 days, I haven’t posted anything here. There are some reasons for that. 😀
My family and I just moved to other village, not to town. We love to live at village, ha..ha. In new place, the signal for my phone card wasn’t good. It was a problem for me, because I usually connect to internet using phone via wifi. Last time, I used modem. I had to change some devices to get good connection.

I missed you my friends! I missed blogging! Truly!
Alhamdulillah, this time I have enough time to post something although just say HELLO WORDPRESS!
Really, in few past days I got some ideas, but I was so hard to convert my ideas become posts. 😉


My favorite writing quote!


So, I only put my ideas in my brain. To be honest, I was impatient to post, to visit and read other blogs as usual. Oh My….! I thought, I had to force myself to find the time for blogging, anyhow just one hour a day.
When I got a little hard in my writing activity, I usually remember this motto,

“Writing is Writing, Just Keep Writing.”

I should keep it well!
Alright my friends! I’ll visit your blogs soon, please open the door! 😉
I’ll catch you! 😀


الحمدلله I’m so blessed with wonderful friendships. I dedicate this plain post to all of you, my lovely friends.

There are many unique stories about my beautiful friendships. السلام عليكم my friends! Do you still remember how I got you as my amazing friends/sisters?


Allah say in القرأن الكريم   Al- Hujuraat verse 13:


The meaning: O men, we created you from a male and female, and formed you into nations and tribes that you may recognize each other. He who has more integrity has indeed greater honour with God. Surely God is all-knowing and well-informed. (13)

I’ll tell you how I found you all.

1.On local website.

First time, I found my first friend from abroad through a local site. She is a muslimah convert from USA. I like reading on online magazine, and “Muállaf / Muslim Convert stories”  is one of my favorite readings.  سبحان الله, Allah guides them to Islam beautifully. I was so glad, that Islam spread out all over the word. الله اكبر

Guess! What I did then?

Firstly, I searched her name on FB. I checked her name and her picture. After that, I sent her a friend request, and waited for her approval. After waiting several weeks, she approved my request, Alhamdulillah, time by time, I got other friends from her list of friends. Subhanallah, such beautiful ways of finding friends.

2.On WordPress.

“Blogging is Fun!” said my close friend [The author of Islamwich]. She guided me about blogging in the first time. She also taught me English. I don’t know how I can repay her help. Only beautiful duás for her. She was my first blog follower. I used to ask her; ”Sis, I just made my blog, but I dunno, what I have to write on it. Where do I get the ideas?” She answered, “MahsaAllah! You could totally start a blog. What do you like to do? What are you good at. That is what you should write about. If you are a good cook, share your recipes. If you like to make crafts, show people how to. It is so much fun blogging but it is a lot of work too. Blogging is fun but yes, at first it can be a lot of work. Have fun with it.”

Another time, I said to her,” Some bloggers followed my blog. I’m so shy, because I only have one article. LOL” Then she gave me some beautiful advice, “Don’t be shy about your blog. I had a follower even before I wrote my first article, I was so mortified. You will get used to it and then you will get addicted to it.”

In the beginning, I posted a few posts in Bahasa Indonesia. But, I soon realized that I could share my blog posts all over the world with English. I mastered myself to write using English. I know my English isn’t good, therefore I often ask my friends to help; editing my writings, teaching me grammar and accompanying me in practicing my speaking. سبحا ن الله, with blogging, I have  many  wonderful friends.

Indeed, and I got beautiful spirits from you my great sisters:

The first step is setting a goal then figuring out how to attain it. You have done both, now the rest is easy. Just stick with it. MashaAllah we are all cheering for you!!

“…………..May Allah (SWT) grant your Dad the highest place in Jannah, inshaAllah. May Allah (SWT) grant you Sabr, inshaAllah.


Such beautiful memories. You will always have the memories, no one can ever take those away from you. Duas are with you. Continue to stay Positive and make Dua for your Dad, inshaAllah. Your Dad has left this Dunya, but his Eternal life is now beginning. May Allah (SWT) have Mercy upon us all. To Allah we belong and to Allah we shall return.

I am sure you will continue to do your Dad proud!

Wow…….Very beautiful post sister, JazakiLlah khoiran ❤ 🙂

May your dream be recognized, and may you get ajar for it. Aameen.
Always here for you, Fatma baji:)
I like this spiral of habits, by the way. I need to follow it too. I find that I lack commitment. I can’t be consistent in any habit. That’s sad, I know :/
Share some of your favorite parts from the book, maybe? Or… an even better idea. You could write a book review!

Masha’Allah, don’t give up. You will prevail insha’Allah, amin :)! Houb salam sister.

ما شاء الله keep going. Well done

Yes…..you have great ideas and clear discussion. I see the grammar issue, and it is more in sentence structure (order of words)….but it does NOT stop me from understanding what you’re saying. As a native speaker, I can get the meaning of your entire article.

Masha’Allah sister, you are doing a fantastic job! keep up the excellent work, may Allah bless you and your family

I love your blog sister mashAllah!! So deep and touching! And your english is perfect!! Keep it up! 🙂


3.On Facebook

We know, Facebook is one of the most famous social media, that can give us many friends from other countries. In that time I used it to find my school mates. الحمدلله I could find them here, and connected the ukhuwah. I also connected with my friends from wordpress. Such blessing to have you all here. Anyhow we’ve never met each other before, but I felt my heart  was so close to you all.

I still use Facebook to find my friends. May Allah shower His mercy and blessing upon us. أمين.

Besides these, Alhamdulillah I also got my beautiful friends from Yahoo, Google+, My English Club, Lang-8, and Skype.

Islam has taught us about Ukhuwah. There are many verses in Qurán Kareem, and in hadith.

hadith of friendship

Someone isn’t called a believer, till he/she love his/her brothers/ sisters as he/she loves himself /herself.

 A beautiful quote about friendship

true friendship


When I did the mistakes

you came to me

corrected me

guided me to the straight path.

When I did the right thing

You were cheering me

accompanied me

defended me

and strengthen my heart.

ما شاء الله
