Abstract

The study of the translation of Quran in Indonesian is intended to map the translation of Quran in Indonesian. Based on the literature review, we found some problematic Indonesian translation of Quran. Translation of the Quran as a holy book should not be mistaken. If this happens, then the function of Quran as a guide turns into a heresy. The translation must be done with precision and accuracy. This paper intends to examine the problematic translation of the Quran into Indonesian in terms of context, culture, and conditions surrounding it. Any criticism of the translation in this study is based on original documents using rational, objective and argumentative thought. After a critical analysis of several translations in Basmalah, al-Ikhlas and al-Maun, it finds that the translation of the Indonesian Quran does not fully follow the rules and procedures of translation. In general, the translation process is done literally, not contextually. On the other hand, the subjective thinking in translation seems more dominant than rational, objective and argumentative thinking.

Abstract

This article aims to describe the growing discourse on religious education-based multicultural, then reorienting the discourse according to the concept of tasamuh. This study, with a qualitative analysis of literature, found that the instigators of the concept of multiculturalism had enough influence Muslims so that religious education should be reorientated. Reorientation does with reconciling tasamuh in religious education-based multicultural. This reorientation is important, because the mission of multicultural education containing religious pluralism, humanism, and democracy, can not be an alternative in the practice of religious education. If this model is applied in education, then this could threaten the faith and morals of students, especially for Muslim students. In society, Islam has implemented the concept of tasa>muh}. With this concept, Islam made it easier for other people to not disturb the faith of Muslims. This reorientation is very appropriate for addressing diversity, with formulations that do not harm the unity of the nation, at the same time the Islamic faith was still solid.

Abstract

This article aims to describe the principal ideas of the book Al-Farīḍah Al-Gāibah by Muhammad Abdussalam Faraj which was one of the most important references for the jihadis and extremist. These principal ideas in this book are misinterpreted, especially about jihad in Islam and about other related concepts, such as takfir, al-hākimiyyah, killing Muslim, and method of understanding religious texts. This paper found that the major problem of the author is his excessive enthusiasm towards Islam’s teaching without the proper instruments and without the right method to understand religious texts. Most of the wrong concepts in the book are caused by wrong methods in interacting with verses and prophetic traditions related to legal issues. The most dominant misinterpretation is how the author interprets verses and hadiths partially, without referring to other related texts.

Abstract

The study attempts to look at the existing inter-religious peace and harmony in Manado. The focus is an attempt to compare between Manado and Ambon which are similar in terms of demographic composition, historical background, political and cultural values but at the same time both are different; the former was in conflict, while the latter was an area of peace during the conflict escalation that engulfed some parts of East Indonesia. This study also tries to look at the strategy of Christian and Muslim communities in both cities in dealing with social tensions. In addition, this article specifically tries to explain factors that contribute to the presence of peace in Manado and its absence in Ambon. Subsequently, attention is also paid to the impact and mechanisms used by the elite in maintaining peace in Manado. This study uncovers some interesting findings. First, there are five elements that support the existence of peace in Manado: education, cultural values (local wisdom), economic situations, spiritual understanding, and the role of the elite. Second, inter-religious peace and harmony can exist in Manado, because of the synergy and cooperation of these three levels of leadership. Third, although the theory of Lederach seems to suggest that top-level leaders are the most dominant element of the elite, it is found that the role of grassroots leaders including leaders of congregations (imam, ustadz, clergymen, and priests) is more vital as their more directly involved in the daily activities of society. Fourth, the mechanisms of these elites seem to be various in every stage of leadership.

Abstract

The metaphor is one of the main problems in translation because it covers the whole figurative language uses. It also includes the most figurative language used in the Quran. Different theories and approaches have been proposed with regard to metaphor translation. In this paper, I favor using a lexicological metaphor concepts that proposed by Dickin, where the dictionary becomes the main source of the analysis. This paper is analyzing and comparing the translation of metaphor in Quran and their corresponding translated English versions through the two selected translations. The data analyzed consists of ten examples representing two types of metaphor in this paper; both are lexicalized and nonlexicalized metaphor. The findings obtained from the analyses of the related data show that there are some techniques of metaphor translation of the Quran, although every translator does not constantly translate metaphor with the same technique in the same type.

Abstract

This article discusses the mindset of Arab society towards religion which is answered and it was changed after the Koran came. This relationship is dialectic, the Arab community as khitab al-Quran. The approach used by the social history of social psychoanalysis. With this approach, this article found some important conclusions. (1) Social history emphasizes that geographic factors, psychological, and social culture have shaped their social siko. Psycho-social impact on their perspectives on God and Religion. God was related to a god (dewa) who can help the biological necessities of life, although not psychologically soothing. As the unsound of the psico-social condition, the way they understand the religions is not correct. They profess religion, somehow does not feel the presence of God. The more they worship Gods, the more discrepancies, social injustices, and tyranny happen. Responding to that matter, the Quran apply persuasive method as the advice (al-din al-nasihah), and discussion (jidal) as their way of thought on religion. (2) The Quran came alter their patterns of psychological evolution, from an-nafs al-ammara as bi-su society into an-nafs al-lawwamah, until in the end, they had a quiet soul (an-nafs al-Mutmainnah)

Abstract

The study attempts to look Islam as a religion which teaches various aspects of normative and humanism has undergone a process of acceptance and rejection in the society. Meanwhile, tradition as an identity of a particular community also has undergone an eclectic process in acquiring adaptation with the Islamic teachings. It proves that Islam is not merely understood as a doctrine but also as a result of the interaction of cultural values, norms, and morals representing in the forms of religious practices which tolerates the local values. The meeting between Islamic value and local tradition value are maintained. Then, they form Islamic narrated activities as a form of internalization of the teachings and community behaviors. Caram Seguguk tradition in South Sumatera is one of the results of the harmonization between Islam and local traditions in daily activities.

Abstract

The issue of politics and ethics are two sides of a coin that invited attention of medieval scholars both in the West and the Islamic world. Although interrelated, but the implementation raises the difference between the two worlds. For the Western world, represented by Machiavelli, politics and ethics should be separated. A ruler should not be bound by ethics and tradition, and does not need to obey the law. In domestic relations affairs, a ruler must collect on his love and fear of people. While in foreign affairs, a ruler must reflect "a smart wolf and a strong lion. As for the world of Islam represented by al-Mawardi, politics and ethics cannot be separated. Even the basics of government, he said, are inspired by Islamic values based on the Quran and Hadith. Even a ruler must have and improve its ethical because it is a basic rule.
