The basic concept of Arabic language learning is learning kinds of noun. Therefore, it is necessary for Arabic language learners to know the name of things needed in communication. One of the causes of failure and success in language learning is the use of media. There are so many teaching media used in language learning, including songs. In this case, the teacher chooses the most favorite song of the students, and then changes its lyrics with difficult words of the classic book. This media is used because it is supposed to be able to create fun and enjoyable situation and give the students ease in memorizing new vocabularies, especially in understanding the meaning of the classic books. On the other hand, the weakness of this media is that the teacher, especially those who have lack of singing abilities, found any difficulties in preparing the vocabulary of the classic book and put them into the song lyrics.

Kajian ini menyimpulkan bahwa upaya formalisasi pendidikan pesantren yang dilaksanakan pada beberapa pesantren di Kota Pekalongan dengan orientasi "setengah hati", tidak diikuti pendirian lembaga pendidikan formal, justru berdampak negatif terhadap perkembangan pesantren. Sebaliknya, jika diikuti dengan pendirian lembaga pendidikan formal seperti MTs dan MA maka berpengaruh terhadap perkembangan pesantren secara kondusif. Formalisasi pesantren juga berdampak terhadap pergeseran pola kepemimpinan pesantren, dari kepemimpinan individu ke kepemimpinan kolektif yayasan; dari sistem pendidikan tradisional ke sistem pendidikan persekolahan; dari kurikulum kitab kuning oriented ke kurikulum integrative; dan dari metode tradisional salafi yang kyai oriented (weton, sorogan, hapalan, ceramah) ke metode student oriented (diskusi, resitasi, problem solving, kerja kelompok) dan lain-lain. Yang menarik, ketika pesantren-pesantren yang diteliti memformalisasikan pendidikannya, kurikulum pesantren salaf yang berbasis kitab kuning tetap dipertahankan, sedangkan ilmu umum hanya dijadikan pendukung ilmu agama yang ada di kurikulum salaf. Ilmu umum dipandang sebagai kebutuhan/tantangan modernisasi pendidikan.

Melihat ilmu kalam dari sisi epistemologi, secara umum akan ditemukan tiga persoalan pokok, yaitu tentang sumber-sumber ilmu kalam itu, bagaimana pengetahuan itu dapat diketahui dan apa ukuran suatu pengetahuan itu disebut benar atau valid. Berkaitan dengan pertanyaan ketiga, sejarah telah mencatat bahwa di antara para penganut aliran-aliran kalam yang ada selalu mengklaim bahwa aliran yang dianutnya adalah yang benar sementara aliran yang lain adalah salah. Maka dalam penelitian ini penulis akan mencoba melihat kembali aliran-aliran kalam yang ada dengan menggunakan pendekatan tiga teori kebenaran, yaitu korespondensi, koherensi dan pragmatism. Tujuannya adalah untuk melihat ilmu kalam tidak hanya dari sisi epistemologi tapi juga dari sisi aksiologi sehingga sekarang ini tidak perlu lagi memperdebatkan mana yang lebih benar di antara aliran-aliran kalam yang ada, tetapi melihat mana yang lebih cocok untuk dipegang sesuai dengan situasi dan kondisi zaman.
Hamzah Fansuri is a Nusantara (Indonesian) sufi who used poems as a medium to convey his messages. In order to understand the symbols used in his poems, a hermeneutics approach is required, especially by using theories of metaphor and symbol which are inseparable parts of ta’wil or Islamic hermeneutics. His poems were mostly inspired by his thoughts and spiritual as well as mystical experiences. For him the poems served not only as emotional revelation, but also as stairways to God, transcendental medium, and self transformation. His poems were widely recognized as hermeneutics poetry or ta’wil verses which are often the esoteric tafsir (meaning) of Quran. He used language symbols which have contextual characteristics, such as boat, bird, trading, sub trading, etc.
Islam is the last religion revealed by Allah to the whole human beings in the world as peace for all, and perfect religion before Islam. Islam with its universal and inclusive teaching is the only religion that can receive other religion as a faith understanding. Formally, Qur’an also acknowledges the prophets of religions before Islam and does not discriminate other religions. Islam does not make the difference of religion not be kind, not make good social relationship, and not do justice in social life as long as it does not bring about faith contamination and does not get across Muslim community
