Jadilah pemaaf dan suruhlah orang-orang mengerjakan yang ma’ruf, serta jangan pedulikan orang-orang yaηg bodoh.
(QS 7 AL-A’raf, 199)

Sungguh, pada dirimu terdapat dua sifat yang disukai Allah, yaitu SANTUN dan SABAR.
(HR MusLim)

Permudahlah dan janganlah kalian mempersulit, gembirakanlah dan janganlah kalian menakut-nakuti.
(HR Bukhari Muslim)

Maukah kalian kuberi tahu tentang orang yang diharamkan masuk neraka? Neraka diharamkan kepada setiap orang yang mendekatkan diri kepada Allah dan dia bersikap lemah-lembut, santun dan suka mempermudah.

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه O:)

Nabi Muhammad shallallahu ‘alaihi bersabda :

” أَلاَ أُخْبِرُكُمْ ….بِنِسَائِكُمْ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ؟ الْوَدُوْدُ الْوَلُوْدُ
الْعَؤُوْدُ عَلَى زَوْجِهَا الَّتِي إِذَا غَضِبَ جَاءَتْ حَتَّى تَضَعَ يَدَهَا فِي يَدِ زَوْجِهَا، وَتَقُوْلُ : لاَ أَذُوْقُ غُمْضًا حَتَّى تَرْضَى”

“Maukah aku kabarkan kepada kalian….tentang wanita-wanita kalian penduduk surga? Yaitu wanita yang penyayang (kepada suaminya), yang subur, yang selalu memberikan manfaat kepada suaminya, yang jika suaminya marah maka iapun mendatangi suaminya lantas meletakkan tangannya…

Cavalcade of Awesome


So, this week’s topic for the League is “pirates”. Unfortunately, I’ve already extolled the virtues of one of my favorite pirate movies of all time, The Pirate Movie, during it’s 30 year anniversary last year. So, I can’t un-pop that cork. My next best option is to talk about Muppet Treasure Island.  And more specifically, the soundtrack.

Muppet Treasure Island was released in 1996.  It was the second of the Muppet movies, after Muppet Christmas Carol, to be made in partnership with Disney and after Jim Henson’s death.  It starred Tim Curry as Long John Silver and Kevin Bishop as Jim Hawkins.  The movie, financially, was a success earning a higher gross than the last three movies.

The movie itself is funny and clever.  Curry is great as Silver.  Bishop is, well, not awesome.  His voice is really high, like a 6 year old girl.  It’s really…

This week’s Freshly Pressed posts continued to impress us with the range, depth, and honesty of the material being put out into the world by WordPress.com bloggers. As a community, you’re bold, not afraid to put yourselves on the line, and committed to chewing through important questions, even if you don’t always have the answers to them. That makes for heady reading, and passionate, opinionated conversation in the comments afterwards.

If you’re looking for something to read this week, we’ve picked three posts that share a preoccupation with trying to be authentic in a high-speed world that often demands that we’re anything but. How do you stay true to yourself when the world around you so actively encourages vapid, “phony” responses to seemingly inescapable situations? In three very different posts, this week’s selection of bloggers tackle that question in their own way.

I Confess. I Cheated.

We face these kinds…

Recently, Michelle announced the launch of WordPress.com/portfolios. If you take photographs, record music and video, illustrate and paint, or design things, you can build a portfolio here on WordPress.com, using one of our portfolio themes.

I was curious to see how painters use WordPress.com as an ultimate canvas to compile and display their masterpieces. If you’re a painter looking for ways to build your online portfolio, find inspiration from these artists:

Fatima Ronquillo

Born in the Philippines and now living in New Mexico, self-taught painter Fatima Ronquillo paints classically inspired portraits. Yet her body of work also evokes magical realism — it’s playful and even eerie. Fatima’s gallery of paintings covers seven years (click on “Works” in the menu to browse back to 2007), so take the time to browse her collection. She uses Portfolio, a premium theme in our Theme Showcase.

Under the “Representation” tab, she’s created pages for…

Every couple weeks, we’re sitting down with an Automattician to help you get to know the people who work behind the scenes to build new features, keep Automattic running, and make WordPress.com the best it can be. This week, we’re very pleased to introduce you to Ms. Kathryn Presner. Everybody, say hey to Kathryn!

What’s your role at Automattic?

As a Happiness Engineer, I help WordPress.com users solve every kind of issue imaginable: from setting up custom menus to custom DNS records.

I love troubleshooting users’ problems and finding solutions — it’s incredibly satisfying seeing someone go from frustrated and confused to delighted and enlightened. I especially enjoy “seeing the lightbulb go off” when explaining WordPress basics to beginners.

The best part of my day is when a user tells me I’ve totally lived up to my Happiness Engineer designation, which — let’s be honest — has to be…
