Abstract

This study elaborates and puts M. Quraish Shihab and Tafsir al-Mishbah in the discourse of Indonesian exegesis (Tafsir). This paper also tries to place Tafsir al-Mishbah which is currently the most comprehensive interpretation among other Indonesian mufassirs’s work that have a complete interpretation. Further explanation on Tafsir al-Mishbah and other mufassirs are considered necessary, so that Tafsir al-Mishbah will have a clearer position in the academic world. Besides mapping and positioning Tafsir al-Mishbah among other Indonesian interpretations, this paper will also look in depth at the correlation of the study of the Al-Qur`an in the previous interpretations. The result of the study shows that the work of M. Quraish Shihab is the most serious interpretation elaborating the Quranic verses in detail and trying to seek the correlation among the verses or chapters (surah).

Abstract

This study examines the use of the Arabic alphabet in religious literature in Yogyakarta. This study uses a case study on three figure writers of religious texts that using the Arabic alphabet in southern part of Central Java (Yogyakarta), namely Asrori Ahmad (Magelang), Ali Maksum (Yogyakarta), and Ahmad Mujab Mahalli (Bantul). This study concluded that the writing of religious texts in Arabic alphabet in the southern Java area had been carried out by means of using Arabic Pegon, and only a few people who wrote in the Arabic language. The transmission of Arabic Pegon in Yogyakarta is allegedly from north coast of Java, especially from Lasem / East Java. The tradition of Arabic language teaching in the pesantrens still focuses mostly on the reading effort, communication, and understanding and it is not oriented to the writing skill. The presence of international journals initiated by the College of Islamic religious institutions and the effort of translation business into Arabic from certain institutions gives an opportunity to strengthen the use of the Arabic alphabet in Indonesia.

Abstract

This study is tracing the origins of early Sunnism and its relation with Javanese Sufis. Based on  primary sources, it is not useless to trace the origins of Sunnism back to the seventh century. By this quest, the portrait of later Sunnism will be, at least, better understood. Besides, following this framework enables one to understand how the Sunnis viewed their own history. Ibn Taimiyya, a very prominent Sunni scholar, for instance, claims that the Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama`a is an eminent classic ma©hab (ma©hab al-q±dim). It existed before Allah created Abu Hanifa, Malik, Syafi`i, and Ahmad bin Hanbal. Indeed it belongs to the mazhab of certain A¡¥±b who consistently emulated the Prophet. Those who opposed the Jama`a deserved to be called mubtadi`µn.

Abstract

In several studies related to the development of Quranic studies, especially in the field of interpretation, implicit questions remain unanswered on current connectivity and the authority of science in the Quranic studies as well as the capability of a person in compiling commentary or interpretation of the Qur’an that has an effect on Islamic society in Indonesia. Interpretations of al Quran today seems to be affected by various sources leading to polemics. According to scholars in Nusantara, it can be understood that there is a connection with the network of scholars based in the Middle East making the thoughts unseparated from the cleric network. Therefore, to uncover a network of sciences and chain of transmission lines (sanad) in Quranic studies is very important, particualrly in understanding the intersection between Huffaz clerics and tarekats in the dissemination of teaching the Quran.The study highlights that there is continuity and correlation between Huffaz and tarekat scholars network in Nusantara. However, at this time, the development of interpretation studies in Nusantara seems to be increasingly departed and separated by the guards of Qur’an, tarekat and the Islam community.

Abstract

This paper highlights specifically the inter-relationship amidst the Wali, ancient mosques and sacred tombs (makam) playing vital role in the process of Islamization in the Indonesian archipelago, and in Lombok in particular. The process of converting local religion to Islam involves Wali - a venerated religious figure coming from outside Lombok- and the tangible legacies that he left in the forms of keramat creating new tradition of ziarah. The early stage of conversion was strongly marked by contextualizing Islam into local cultural symbol and cosmology. Embedded in this stage is the development of venerated attributes attached to keWalian, in the forms of: karamah, ngalap berkah, and wasilah. These spiritual attributes are pinpointed to highlight a dis¬tinctive cultural variance of Sasak Muslims in Lombok.

Abstract

This paper reports on an ongoing research project on “New Southeast Asian Spiritualties” and offers a preliminary analysis of new Muslim religiosities in the Jakarta metropolitan area (Jabodetabek). Most of the analyses of the pro­cesses of “Islamization” in places like Indonesia and Malaysia in the last few decades focus on a particular set of social cum political agendas: the impo­si­tion of sharia law, the Islamization of the state apparatus, the in­creased emphasis on the external markers of ‘Islamic identity’ and the like. Yet, there appears to be an equally significant, even sometimes opposing, tendency among Southeast Asian Muslims that involves them in seeking out more intense and personalised ‘inner’ forms of religious experience, a pro­cess with parallels elsewhere in the world. In the paper, I discuss examples of this tendency based on fieldwork in the greater Jakarta area, and ask about its implications for current understandings of the consequences (for democracy, secularism, human rights, gender relations, etc.) of Islamization in Southeast Asia.

Abstract

Globalization in the world has given the huge impact on the people, as the new condition of the world has brought the world to the globalism- a consciousness and understanding that the world is one. Globalization has also unified the people in a global village that covers all aspects of life such as economic, political, cultural, religious aspects. This paper will explore the concept of wa¡a¯iyyah which stresses on the moderation and accommodative way and its implementation in Southeast Asia. The main idea of the wa¡a¯iyyah or moderation in religious life is that it offers the importance of realizing the concept of Islamic blessing for all the Universe (Islam; Ra¥matan lil ±lam³n). Therefore, the main offer of the Muslim wa¡a¯iyyah movement is to focus on developing civilization, freedom, justice, prosperity and better future for all the people. It is the main capital of the Wa¡a¯iyyah in Southeast Asia to give the significant contribution to the globalization of the world.

Abstract

The word jihad has been understood various way according to motive, objective, paradigm, perspective and the historical background, including political and doctrinal interests of the users. Jihad becomes an equivocal concept resulting the conceptual debates and doctrinal dispute. Response to this condition, it is necessary to redefine and reformulate such concepts seen from the Qur’anic perspective. This study endevours to explicate how Al-Qur’an as the Muslim’s holy book views the jihad as one of fundamental teachings in one side, and of how the Muslims as the followers implement such teachings of jihad in daily life accordingly. The article highlights that, in nature, jihad has any positive and constructive meaning as the struggle for improving the life-quality of the human beings as a whole.

Abstract

This article discusses the inscription found in Terengganu, which originated in the early XIV Century. The inscription documents the laws implemented by the rulers of the time. These texts reveal that the laws of this time came from two sources: Islamic law and customary (adat) law. In other words, the inscription indicates that legal pluralism was already in existence by the 14th Century. Adat law was the principle legal system in place, playing an important role in the archipelagic society at the time. However, there was an alternative system of Islamic law (e.g. stoning as a punishment for adultery) in place for lower social classes. This finding suggests that Islamic law was already in existence in the early 14th century—much earlier than the prevailing understanding of the history of Islamic law suggests. The article contributes by providing the new transliteration from Jawi into Latin characters and the new translation from old-Malay into modern English, which are arguably more accurate than the previous work.
