Abstract

This  article  discusses  the  identity  construction  of  a  Jordanian  Muslim  woman  through  the  main female character named Najwa reflected in Willow Trees Don’t Weep novel (2014) by Fadia Faqir. The method used in this study is descriptive qualitative. It is supported by the concept of identity by Stuart Hall and that of patriarchy to analyze the text. The aim of the study is to point out how Najwa, as a Jordanian Muslim woman who lives in a strong patriarchal culture without male figure in her family,  constructs  her  identity,  particularly  when  travelling  to  some  different  countries  including Pakistan, Afghanistan, and England just to find her father. The way Najwa Lives in a new country, where she interacts with new people and be immersed in new culture, has an immense impact on her.  Subsequently  self-identity  construction  is  definitely  inevitable.  Here,  Najwa  herself  strives  to negotiate  and  articulate  her  identity  through  her  appearance  and  behavior,  especially  in  Islamic practices and rituals. Consequently, the negotiation and articulation turn out to be the two major things  in  her  self-identity  construction.  Culture,  however,  becomes  a  crucial  mean  to  identity. Different culture represents different identity, and it keeps changing relaying on place where she lives.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i1.4169

Abstract

The study on the extrinsic language and its relation with religious system is important to undertake as it has strong intrinsic language paradigm. This paper found that there is a gap in the language research in response to a socio-cultural challenge. This paper studies the use of language and Islamic fundamentalism system in the religious book of Jamaah Tablig. The result shows that there is a correlation between them. The Arabic loanwords used by Jamaah Tablig in their preaching activities indicate that their religious system is fundamentalist. This paper uses the hermeneutical approach to study this topic. Next, this paper suggests that this group use the contextual and socio-cultural elements of the Quran, and do not use solely literal approach to the study of Islam (the Quran and the Muhammad tradition/Sunnah).DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i1.4341

Abstract

This  article  examines  gender  discrimination,  and  investigates  the  relation  between  gender  and social  class  relation  experienced  by  the  main  female  character,  Carla,  in  the  short  story  entitled Bob Darling by Carolyn Cooke. The method used in this study is descriptive qualitative applying the  concept  of  gender  discrimination  by  Mansour  Fakih  and  the  concept  of  intersectionality  by Kimberlé Crenshaw about the connection of multiple dimensions, such as gender and class in making discrimination. This study aims to find how the main female character that lives in the patriarchal culture is depicted in the story. Moreover, it is to show how social segregation strengthens the gender discrimination.  Gender  discrimination  is  unjust  treatments  and  assumptions  against  someone, particularly based on a person’s sex that leads to the role that he or she should play in the society. The  different  role  however,  leads  to  the  harm  and  the  loss  of  person’s  right  in  life  especially  for woman who lives in patriarchal culture. The results show that stereotype, subordination and violence against woman are experienced by the main female character in the society as the effect of gender discrimination. Then, social class as a division of individual classes based on levels of individual’s position in society that can be determined by wealth, education, occupation, and others has a part in gender discrimination. When the woman is on lower class, she has less power and authority so that  it  makes  a  stronger  discrimination  against  her.  In  conclusion,  in  the  patriarchal  culture,  the discrimination against woman is not only influenced by the gender itself, but also the social class.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i2.4345

Abstract

Indonesia  is  the  largest  Muslim  populations  in  the  world.  According  to  the 2011  census,  there was  about  eighty  eight  percentage  (nearly  two  hundred and  five  million  Muslims)  of  the  total population  of  this  country.  Does  this largest  number  of  Muslims  demonstrate  their  Islamic identity  in  Indonesia? This  country  has  attracted  imperialist  countries  to  colonize,  invade and plunder  its  resources.  Although  Indonesia  reached  its  independence  on  7 August  1945,  this country  still  witnesses  other  types  of  colonization  in  terms of  information  and  communication technology,  which  have  led  particularly  its Muslims  to  neglect  their  ‘Islamic  identity’  and generally  its  people  to neglect  their  predecessors’  efforts  to  obtain  the  freedom  of  this  country.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i1.4389

Abstract

The present article studies the Jewish-Muslim intimacy through the Jewish language as a cultural space in the period of the medieval Islam. The Judeo-Arabic, as the technical terms of the Jewish language in this period and in the subsequent eras, was one of the many venues through which people negotiated the Jewish identity in the non-Jewish environments. This negotiation was the outcome of intensive meeting between the Arabs’ culture and the Jewish-specific heritages since pre-Islamic era to the period of the medieval Islam in dialectical and contested way. The Arabic language in the Hebrew script was an example of this process. In this article, the author traces back the earlier encounter between the Jews and the Arabs in the proto-Judeo-Arabic, al-yahūdīyyah, which includs the Muslim narrative of both the Prophet Muḥammad and the Jews. Next, this paper studies a later period of the Judeo-Arabic development as a Jewish specific language. The author argues that the Judeo-Arabic demonstrates a cultural symbiosis and a frontier of interaction between the Jews and the  Muslims  marked  by  the  way  Muslims  and  Jews  accommodated  and  contested  to  each  other.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i1.4401

Abstract

Numerous  Islamic  groups  in  Indonesia  use  the  internet  to  offer  ideology  against  other  groups  or other sects to internet users. This study focuses on sectarian ideology on Islamic online media in Indonesia. Having combined and sought this media, I found that lppimakassar.com and manhajsala- fi.com  are  the  most  intensive  sites  in  offering  sectarian  ideology.  This  study  aims  to  examine  the ideological identity and pattern of the websites linked to the administrators or writers of the web- sites. To find their ideology, this article uses topic headings, news, and articles to analyze. This meth- od has led me to find two Islamic online media: lppimakassar.com and manhajsalafi.com. The former is affiliated to the Salafi group while the latter to the Aswaja group. These two websites adopt their thoughts abroad.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i2.5468

Abstract

As a continued discussion about the Judeo-Arabic as a cultural symbiosis of the Jews in the Islamicate context, the present article enhances it with the discussion of frontier as a theoretical framework to understand the Jewish condition in the Muslim realm, in particular in Al-Andalus. Hence, the Judeo- Arabic becomes an actualization of the politics of language by the Jews. In addition to the fact that the Judeo-Arabic being nurtured by the Arabic literature, the Jews also carried out their experiences in diaspora critically through the usage of the Arabic and the Judeo-Arabic cultural container.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i2.5472

Abstract

Abdurrahman  Wahid  was  appointed  by  MPR  (the  Indonesian  People’s  Representative  Assembly) as  the  President  of  the  Republic  of  Indonesia  because  of  his  idea  of  democracy,  convincing  the prevailing  two  opposing  groups,  namely  the  nationalist  groups  and  Islamist  groups  (it  is  well- known as Poros Tengah/ the Central Axis). Indeed, he was able to adapt democracy to the Islamic tradition by employing the fiqh-plus paradigm to the relationship between Islam and the state. He made uses of the presidential office to consolidate the democratic transition such as by supporting civil society, establishing civil supremacy and establishing law enforcement. From beginning it was not  easy  for  him  to  socialise  his  fiqh-plus  paradigm  to  other  Islamic  groups.  Moreover,  Central Axis, the determining force contributing to the win of Wahid’s presidential election, felt upset with Wahid’s policies which did not align with their interests. The nationalist groups were also anxious about  occupying  the  presidential  office  for  themself.  Last  but  not  the  least,  the  military  also agreed with the idea of impeachment of President Wahid in order to save their political interests.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i2.5473

Abstract

Abstract Poetry is the artistic tradition that the arabs have been developing from their pre-Islamic time to the Islamic one throughout their Arabian archipelago. Next, this Arabic poetry has its own social function  as  a  note  list  (dȉwân)  for  the  Arab  people.  This  social  function  produces  the  prominent Arabic literati’s names, one of which is Ahmad Syauqi Bek bin Ali bin Ahmad Syauqi (b. in Cairo in 1868- d. in Cairo in 1932), a man of letters called the “Prince of the Poets” (amȉr al syu’arâ’). One of his well-known Arabic poetries is “Damascus Tragedy” (Nakbah Dimasyqâ) collected in the book of “A’lâm wa Ruwwâd fȉ al-Adab al-‘Arabȉ” (The Learned People and the Pioneers in the Arabic Letters) authored by Kazhim Chathiyth (1930-2007). By using an analytical descriptive method, this article aims to understand and address the literary elements of Syauqi’s thought (fikrah), his emotion (‘athȉfah), his imagination (khayâl), and his musical poems. This article suggests that Syauqi’s poems channels his various overflowing feelings, such as sadness, admiration, love, anger, and nationalism, by using the metaphorical words easy to understand the forms of the “wâfir” (literally, exuberant) and that of the rhythmical Arabic letter of “qâf”, a letter that has a strong ‘character’ in Syauqi’s poems.DOI: 10.15408/insaniyat.v1i2.5499
