Approximately two decades after the post-colonial era, more than five decades ago, Islam and the hijab were seen as backwards and old-fashioned amongst most people in my home country. My Father told me, he and his friends were dreaming about the rise of a new generation where hijab is worn with pride, where Muslimas play an active role and contribute positively to the society.

This blog aims to be a contribution, an outward reflection of the world, religion, culture, academe, and much more. The posts are meant to be educative, engaging, reflective, but enjoyable at the same time. I want to be a part of a Muslima blogging community where we build each other up through our posts.

There are several categories in this blog: 1000 AishaReflection, and Noteworthy. 1000 Aisha is about Muslimas contributing actively to society. Reflection simply contains contemplations on whatever topics that come to mind. Noteworthy includes recommendation on items, be they books, places, dining, products, etc.


I am an Indonesian Muslima currently pursuing my postgraduate study in Australia. For more information, you are welcome to contact me via the contact form.
