Ahmad Dahlan the founder of Muhammadiyah and KH. Hashim Asyariy the founder of Nahdatul Ulama. On the other hand, the return of Kaum Muda Minangkabau (the youth of Minangkabau) had a strong effect on the development and performance of Surau as an educational institution.

This study offers the argument that a comprehensive mapping of the matter and then accompanied by professional planning and implementation of dawah, professionally so the dawah will be able to give influence and be a solution to various problems of people life in the current era of globalization.

It is assumed that Islamic relations with local culture will occur in several forms: first: the possibility of coexistence or adhesion between Islam and Rejang culture without mutual intervention and interruption; second: the possibility of integration or cohesion whether in the form of Islamic permeation into local culture or adaptation of local culture to Islam, both symbolically and substantially, and third: the possibility of conflict between Islam and local culture both latent and manifest

Meanwhile, the Quran, which is still global and universal, remains a matter to be scrutinized and studied comprehensively. The discourse of corruption, for example, is still an implicit concept that is not clearly described by the Quran. But, it does not mean, the Quran can not solve this case.

Nowadays, environmental problems have become hot and interesting issues to discuss. Natural damages which occur in almost all parts of the world have attracted serious attention among experts and nature lovers as well as motivated them to work out to save the environment from demages. Besides theoretical concept of how to reduce nature damages, many efforts have been done in order to preserve the nature. Some of these exertions result in success, but some of them get failed. Consequently, it occurs to some people to seek for another solution or outlook, namely from the perspective of religion. It is to say that among moslem scholars there is a strong belief that Islam has provided specific guidelines pertaining to the conservation of universe. Some of them can be traced in the divine verses throughout the book of al-Qur’an. In line with this notion, the writer is interested in exploring the concept of Islam on nature preservation in the field of tafsir (Qur’anic exegesis). The present article will examine nature conservatory understanding of an outstanding scholar in Indonesia, M. Quraish shihab, whose quite extensive books on tafsir are entitled “Tafsir al-Misbah”. Shihab’s thought deserves our attention because he has paid much interest in his books of tafsir on the issues of nature and its preservation.

Abstract

Prophet Muhammad was sent with the teachings of Islam, so Islam is rahmatan lilalamin.Islam is a blessing for all humans and the nature. In language grace means that tenderness is combined with compassion. In other words, grace can be interpreted with affection. His grace or outpouring of affection is of meaningful and material. The meaningful grace is the enjoyment that comes from being close to Allah SWT, and this is only given to the believers. While the material grace is in the form of physical pleasure and given to all people.So, the Prophet Muhammad saw is the form of Allahs love for all humanity. Islam in Indonesia will not be able to function as rahmatan lil alamin as long as the Quran is only roled as the five kinds. Islam will serve as rahmatan lil alamin only if Muslims want to read the Quran, memorize it, teach it to others, understand the content and intentions of its content, put it into national law,respect and obey it.
