About Me

Assalamu alaikum.

Hi!

I'm Diah. This is my English blog. I have another blog in Indonesian: www.damarojat.com.

In this blog you can read posts about a mom's life. It includes me, my family, my hobbies and my dreams. I like to write simple things in simple words. For me, simplicity is beauty.

I live with my husband and three sons. I love my family and I live for them. I'm a full-time stay at home mom. I do domestic jobs every day, and I love it. For my alter ego, I give myself a chance to spread my words to the world through blogging.

I love blogging as it challenges me to always learn new things. I join several blogger communities, some of them are mom blogger communities. From there I learn to blog from scratch. To me, joining good and qualified communities are important.

Well, that's all from me. Thanks for stopping by. For any questions and inquiries, please, feel free to contact me.

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …

Bringing My One-Year-Old Son to Masjid for the First Time

On that fajr time, my first and second son opened the door to go to masjid for fajr salah. Suddenly my one-year-old son cried. He wanted to go with his brothers. I refused his wish, worrying he might be bothering other people by his cries or screams. But, my husband suggested me to bring him. So I walked to masjid with my son in my arms.

I entered the masjid, standing behind some ladies doing their qabliyah fajr salah, waiting for the iqamah. I chose the second row which was the last row of the ladies' area. I still held my son in my arms and he seemed to enjoy the moment.

The salah began. I was lucky there was only a lady at the left meaning that I wasn't in the middle of the row. I was afraid that my son would cry or something because he often did that everytime I do salah at home. I don't know why he behaves like that. Is this mukena (salah cloth) frightenes him? Or is it my flat expression during salah makes him scary?


At masjid I did the takbiratul ihram with one han…

Nanni's Hijab: A Book For Young Hijabis

Hijab is not only a kind of fashion. It is also an identity. That is why many muslim families introduce the wearing of hijab for their daughters as early as possible. Just like Nanni.
Nanni is a little muslim girl who loves to wear hijab to school. Not only loves wearing hijab but she also has many beautiful hijabs that her class mates adore. What so unique about her hijabs is she creates a specific schedule to wear them.
Red hijabs for Mondays, blue for Tuesdays, pink for Wednesdays, green for Thursdays, and purple hijabs for Fridays. How clever! Nanni never wears the same hijab twice!

One day, cheerful Nanni became very sad and embarassed because of her hijab. Oh, no, not the hijab. It was because of Leslie's bad act. Leslie, Nanni's new classmate, tried to bully her by made a mock of Nanni's hijab. She called the hijab 'he-job' and pulled Nanni's hijab off of Nanni's head.
Nanni was so sad and angry. She once thought to fight back, but Allah Showed her…
