Abstract

The absence of in-depth study of the ulama Hadhrami archipelago, especially the period after the 18th century when people Hadhrami emigration reached its peak, is something surprising. Indeed, there are records of the ulama certain Hadhrami, but many do not provide adequate information. Note that usually only contains a very brief description and not the whole of the presence and role of Hadhrami scholars in the history of Islam in the archipelago.It is not surprising, because most of the main motivations arrival Hadhrami people to this part of the world are traded, and not spreading religion. In other words, the arrival of their much more motivated by a desire to improve the economic conditions and acquire wealth. So if some of them are then receive certain positions, such as qadi or imam, is more likely to be motivated by economic interests rather than the interests of religion wages.DOI: 10.15408/sdi.v2i2.833

Abstract

This article discusses two faces of Islam, political and cultural, which have developed throughout the Muslim world, including in Indonesia. It argues that political Islam has two faces and both of which, although represented by two different groups, have the same agendas, i.e., the application by the state of shari’a, and also the establishment of Islamic state. Arguing that political Islam has brought about radicalism, the article proposes that the other face of Islam, that is cultural Islam, should be maintained and empowered.

Abstract

What is meant by the term Research University? Essentially, a Research university is a university based upon a research tradition. The implications are broad, being that the university must have the capabilities and facilities to support the strengthening of this research tradition. In realizing these aspirations, there is a need to identify how prepared the university is to begin developments in the areas of academic, financial and administrative, institutional, and student affairs. This is necessary to obtain an objective evaluation of the actual capacity of the institution in the above four areas.DOI: 10.15408/sdi.v10i2.635

Abstract

Muslims in Southeast Asia are overwhelmingly dominant by group of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamaah (Aswaja), the so-called Sunni. They contributed a great deal to the formation of distinct Islamic tradition that can stillibe observed today. In Indonesia, the history of the Aswaja can be considered as the continuous consolidation of orthodoxy which appeared through some successive reforms and santrinization. This consolidation has, of course, played important role for strengthening Malay-Indonesian ulama relationship. This study focusses on the literature used by Malay-Indonesian ulama and reforms performing their idea to their society. This study argues that the Malay-Indonesian ulama were mostly responsible for earliest reforms of Islamic teaching an Muslim life in the archipelago.

Abstract

Kersten, Carool. 2015. Islam in Indonesia: The Contest for Society, Ideas and Values, London: Hurst & Company, pp. 373+xx.The comprehensive study of contemporary Indonesian Islam is still scarce. Most of the studies on this subject deal with the certain aspect of the current development of Indonesian Islam. Kersten’s book is an attempt to present an intellectual history of contemporary Indonesian Islam in six chapters: first, secularism, pluralism and liberalism in Indonesia; second, Islam in Indonesia today: discourses and interlocutors; third, the weight of the predecessor: adaptations, critique, and transformation; fourth, debating secularism: Islam, statehood and democracy; fifth, the letter or the spirit of Islamic law? Legal formalists versus substantivitists; sixth, contentious triangulation: religious pluralism, human rights and freedom of thought. This book can be considered as a sequel to the Indonesian part of the book written by the same author, Cosmopolitans, and Heretics: New Muslim Intellectuals and the Study of Islam (2011).
