Places I Want To Visit In Life

I'm not a travel freak and I travel less, but somehow I like to visit great places with my family. Just visiting the greenery in our neighborhood is fine for me. In special occasions we travel to tourism objects to let our sons know the world. We traveled to Pasir Putih Beach in Trenggalek last January that's about 4 hours from home.

There are some places I want to visit in life. Some special places. I really hope I will be able to travel there. Well, let's see where I wish to go.

For sure, these are the first special places I want to visit. Not only because Makkah is a place where every muslim who is physically and financially ready must visit for a hajj pilgrimage, but it's more than that. There's a certain feeling that drives me to go there one day. Yes, one day insha Allah.

As Madinah is the place where Islam grew for the first time and spread out to the world. Madinah is a very historical city, from religious to political matters. It's also the place where Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him lived and being buried.

Arctic Circle is a wide area lies on some 66° 34' North. It's the southern part of North Pole. Svalbard in Norway could be the place I want to visit in life.

What's so interesting about this place? I want to witness the midnight sun during summer especially from May to July when the sun never sets! 24 hours of sunny sky! I really want to know how it feels to have a bright sky night and watch the 00:00 a.m. with the sun still in the sky.

What? Space? Yes, outer space. I dreamt of being an astronaut when I was little.

I know it's dark, silence, cold and weightless. I know it's almost impossible for me to be up there. But there's nothing to lose to dream, right?

Well, those are places I want to visit in life from the most possible ones to the most impossible ones.
What about you? Where are your dream places you want to visit in your life?

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports. L O L.Related article: Living In A Small Town and How I Feel About ItOn that beautiful morning I took a walk with my sons to local fisheries where they can see ponds and paddy fields. I put my pink batik dress and a Plain Deluxe Hijab from Hidden Pearls on. The hijab covered me beautifully. Even my mom asked me about it. Alhamdulillaah *smile* The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-th…

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…
