Best Posts Of 2017

Alhamdulillaah, we've reached the end of 2017. We'll soon see the year 2018, insha Allah. Many great things happened this year and so are my blog posts. Although this blog hasn't gained enough readers nor PV, but I believe it will be better next year. One of the ways to make it come true is by joining some blog collaborations.

This collaboration is about telling you my best posts of 2017. There should be 5 posts and I chose the posts I like so much because of the deep of experience I had through these posts. Okay, here they are:

Another Boy in My Life

This year's great things is started by the coming of my 3rd child. In February I was told that the baby to be was a boy. I have two sons already, so this baby completes the boy-series of my life. 

I was expecting a baby girl. I did. But when it turned out to be a boy, it is great. I know what Allah has given must be always something good, including the presence of this baby boy who looks like me. Finally, I have two sons who look like me. Haha...

Jaundice, After 7 Years

The euphoria of having another baby turned into a sad thing. The newborn had to stay in the hospital for 3 days suffering from jaundice. I was very, very shocked and sad. This is my 3rd baby and I raised him the wrong way? Masha Allah. What kind of mom am I?

My Sons' Ramadan

There's always a silver lining after the cloud. During last Ramadan, not only I have learnt something new to raise a baby, but also I enjoyed seeing my bigger sons learnt to do fasting. I couldn't believe they finally did it. Something that I wasn't expected too much.
The first day of Ramadan was hard and I worried a lot but it turned well. Thank God. And after Day One, it went up and down but still on the right track. After all, everything went easier than I had thought. I think I was very blessed.

Ginger, My Best Friend During Ramadan's Suhoor

Still talking about Ramadan, I shared something I did for these years during Ramadan. A healthy and simple way to give my family a good drink for suhoor. And what I really love about sharing it is that some people were influenced by this story and wanted to try. Alhamdulillah.

Well, those are my best posts of 2017. What about you? What are the greatest moments along 2017? Wanna share them with me?

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…
