    Re: I'm Abdullah and I'm 36 years old.

    There are three main parts to what you are trying to say. Here are the main ways of saying each one. Put any combination of them together and you'll have a natural statement.

    Hi.
    Hello.
    Hiya.
    Hi there.
    Good morning/afternoon/evening.

    I'm Abdullah.
    My name's Abdullah.
    I'm called Abdullah.

    I'm 36.
    I'm 36 years old.
    I'm 36 years of age.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm Abdullah, I am 36 years old.
    This is a comma splice. You cannot separate two independent clauses with a comma.
