Abstract

This paper analyses the meaning of Friday prayer for Indonesian Muslims students in Canberra, Australia. Due to the nature of obligatory prayer (s}ala>h) in Islam, it is hard to identify the symbolic meaning of every movement of prayer for the Muslim participants. However, using Bowen‎‎’‎‎s analysis, this paper emphasizes the social significance of Friday prayer for its participants in a particular place and time. It argues that Friday prayer is viewed by Indonesian Muslim participants as a medium to strengthen their Islamic faith and their membership of the Indonesian Islamic community in Canberra. Being a minority group, facing a prevailing Western culture, they try to maintain their faith and create social cohesion among Indonesian Muslims through their participation in this Islamic ritual.

Abstract

This article aims at analysing the growing membership of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) by looking at its local development in Makassar, South Sulawesi. While many scholars have emphasized external factors in explaining the rise of Islamist movements, including HTI, this study emphasizes internal explanation from the movement itself. It discusses the strong relationship between HTI da’wah doctrines, recruitment strategy and the joining process. The various recruitment methods and strategies of HTI are in line with its doctrinal stages of da’wah, namely  the stage of culturing (tathqif), the stage of interaction with the ummah, and the stage of taking over the government. This article suggests that individual persuasion through pre-existing interpersonal networks is crucial in attracting young Muslims to participate in HTI. Borrowing theories of conversion by Lofland-Stark and Wiktorowicz, the article demonstrates three  processses of joining in HTI: cognitive opening, religious seeking, and socialization.

Abstract

Hukum Islam (syari’ah) dan tasawuf adalah dua entitas yang sampai saat ini masih terpancang sebagai varian yang berdiri sendiri, bahkan dua entitas ini sering dihadapkan secara vis a vis. Syari’ah yang berdiri secara konsisten pada dimensi eksoteris (lahiriah) mengklaim bahwa sufi secara keseluruhan mengabaikan ketentuan lahiriah hukum agama dan menggantikan praktik mendasar dengan inovasi desain mereka sendiri, sehingga menghapus diri dari komunitas muslim sejati. Sedangkan para sufi sendiri yang berkecipung di dunia esoteris menyatakan bahwa para fuqaha hanya melihat sisi eksplisit yang ada pada lembar-lembar al-Qur’an dan hanya bersikap formalitas belaka tanpa menangkap esensi atau substansi ajaran Islam. Syari’at, tarekat, hakekat, dan makrifat adalah langkah integratif dalam sufisme. Oleh karena itu, dua dimensi tersebut merupakan satu kesatuan yang tidak saling menegasikan (integratif-monokhotomik) antara satu dimensi dengan dimensi lainnya. Antara dua dimensi ini terbuka ruang untuk menemukan “kebenaran hakiki” menuju satu Tuhan

Abstract

The topic of the writing is Islam and Jihad.  The main focuses of this writing is how the concept of “Jihad” understood by the West, which is labeled as “Radical Islamist” on the base of the action of the radical Islamic groups, while Islam undermines tolerance and peace? The methodology of this writing is descriptive analyzes of the concept of Islam and jihad. It found that the idea of jihad has multiple meanings in Islam which is not confined to holy war. It is lesser jihad which is considered as holy war. However, holy war in Islam does not refer to military aggression as understood within the Christian tradition. The values of peace and tolerance are emphasized as Islam is very concerned with the sanctity of human life, justice and humanity. In addition, the history of Islam has shown that in the classical era Muslims could coexist with non-Muslims in harmony and peace. It is clear that Islam is deeply concerned with peace and tolerance such as Silm, assalamu alaikum etc. Jihad has been misunderstood and distorted in the west and among Muslim radicals as it tends to be associated with Muslim aggression, holy war, violence, and terrorism.

Abstract

This article examines the Islamist issues presented by the Sabili magazine in post-New Order Indonesia from 1998 to 2004. This study is mainly inspired by the resurgence of Islamism as a consequence of political liberalization that resulted from the fall of Soeharto in May 1998. The press freedom permitted by president Habibie has given Islamic media such as the Sabili magazine the opportunity to operate relatively freely, unlike the restrictions faced during the New Order era. Sabili magazine, as the object of this study, has for sometime been a popular Islamic magazine among Muslim readers in Indonesia.DOI: 10.15408/sdi.v12i3.582

Abstract

General science (science) growing rapidly while the decline of Islamic science, which in the end came the dichotomy between the two disciplines. Not only here but there are also the secularization of science. But secularization of science has been challenged by the Church. Awarding a penalty to the scientists who dare to be different views with the Church to trigger the birth of science that separates itself from religious doctrine. This condition motivates Muslim scholars try hard to re-integrate science and religion. Thinking about integration or the Islamization of science today is carried out by Muslim intellectuals, can not be separated from religious awareness. In totality amid hectic global world that is loaded with the progress of science and technology. Real science is the result of a human reading the verses of Allah, losing the dimension of spirituality, then berkembangkanlah science or science that has no connection with religion. It is not surprising then that the science and technology that should benefit as much as possible for human life turned out to be a tool used for temporary interest that it be a "cause" adverse human calamity. To achieve these objectives it is necessary to do an effort to integrate general sciences with the Islamic sciences, general sciences that are not value free or secular. Interdisciplinary approach and inter connectivity between the disciplines of religion and the public need to be built and developed continuously without unrelenting.
