Fajri Matahati Muhammadin bin Muhammad Amirullah Makmunsyah Oktaufik bin Musa Affendy bin Ibrahim bin Darimi bin Djaji bin Abu Djaji, that is my name with the furthest nasaab I can trace my history to. My dad is Dr M.A.M. Oktaufik, he is a senior researcher at Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi in the field of renewable energy. My mom is Dra. Dini Elfiah, she provides services and therapy for children with autism and developmental delay. She is currently serving as Director of Yayasan ISADD Indonesia, an Indonesian branch of the Intervention Services for Autism and Developmental Delay (ISADD) in Australia. I have just one little sister, her name is Maulia Pijarhati Muhammadin, S.Psi, currently teaching at HiSCOPE which is an international preschool.

InshaaAllah I am a Muslim, doing my best to follow the path of the ahlus sunnah wal jama’ah, as understood by the Salaafush Shaaleh. Its a long talk on this one, not sure how to explain it in short. To see how I understand Islam, pleaase click and read here.

Currently I am a lecturer at the International Law Department, Fakultas Hukum, Universitas Gadjah Mada. At the same time, I am the Head of the Advisory Council of Jogja Debating Forum. My main academic interest is in Islamic Law and public international law, although I am interested in other topics as well. Check the Academic Profile page for further details on my research interest. This blog will generally contain my thoughts, which may either be serious things such as academic articles or also not-so-serious things such as cooking recipes. I may also share announcements or materials for my students here.

Articles posted in this blog are either in English or in Bahasa Indonesia. If you speak English but are interested to understand any articles in Bahasa Indonesia (or the other way round), you can contact me and I will do my best to either translate or at least explain it for you. Feel free to comment on my posts if you have disagreements, inputs, questions, or comments in general. I will highly appreciate them, and inshaaAllah it will be a lesson for us or at least for myself. If you wish to discuss anything with me or otherwise contact me for other purposes, you can email me at fajrimuhammadin@ugm.ac.id

وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ‏
