Abstract

Before rapid developments of science, as we see and experience today, religion - related to beliefs, ideas, institutions, worship, social action, laws and norms, tools, and a holy book as its source – has been exist with its various plural forms. Followers of religion agree that the follower community retained, adhered to, and maintained spiritual values and life norms through creed, belief or faith, ritual worship, and certain habits. Inheritance of religious values through continuous living tradition across generation is a sign movement of religious traditions and culture by humankind since centuries ago. When there is a civilization, a religion will always follow it.

Abstract

Gender relations in Islam has been the subject of serious debates among scholars in Egypt for many decades. One of the central questions was whether the status and role of women in Egypt were and are primarily influenced by Islam, or they should also be attributed to other social, economic, cultural and political factors. This study will look at the status and role of women in modern Egypt. It is commonly known that traditions based largely on religion (including Islam) and superstition are strong elements in the Egyptian culture. However, this study will show that the inequity in gender relations in modern Egypt should be more attributed to socioeconomic factors than to those religious or theological beliefs. On the other hand, one cannot overlook the formative influence of Islam on the roles of women and men in the country both in the past and in the present. The study suggests that attempts to reinterpret, reassess and re-actualize Islamic doctrines and practices pertaining to the equal status and roles of women in the context of Egyptian culture should also be considered in order to alter the women and men’s perception on gender relations.

Abstract

God created the nature in a variety of styles and shapes. Moreover, Gor created man with a diversity of ethnics, cultures, religions, and even the so-called multiculture. Islam does not percieve plurality as a sort of split potentially leading to disaster that might bring down the foundations of unity in human life. In fact, plurality makes huiman life dynamic and not stagnant, as it brings about competitions between each party in order to perform the best. Islam in Indonesia is considered more tolerant upon culture, as indicated by its accommodating attitude towards the local culture. This attitude reflects the willingness of Indonesia Muslims to absorb the local culture and to adjuct it to the teachings of Islam. Culture is seen as an inherent part of society’s life, hence it is not possible for a doctrine that brings a breath of rahmatan li al-`âlamìn (a blessing to the universe) to   suppress something that has become part of the society as long as the subject culture does not contradict the teachings of Islam. Among the local religious cultures in South Sulawesi is the tradition of “Bungamale”, which is serving boiled chicken eggs that have been decorated with certain ornaments, on every celebration of the birth day of the prophet Muhammad.

Abstract

El-Zein and Asad proposed theoretical approaches to understand Muslim societies. Many later anthropologists welcomed and criticised their proposal. Ideally, how should Muslim societies be anthropologically approached? How should localities of Islam be comprehended? To give a partial answer to these questions, I turn to my ethnographic and historical fieldwork in Bantaeng, eastern Indonesia, to show how it should ideally work. This paper examines the way anthropologists ideally react to the study of Islam and Muslims. This includes several issues that will be made as case studies in this paper. By exploring the ideas of folk and statist Islam[s], tomb visit, Bugis within Makassar, and some other. This paper will be ended with a recommendation on the proposed prospective way-out of how anthropologists observes Muslim societies.

Abstract

Provided that the Quran and the Prophet’s Sunnah serve as the basic guidelines for Muslims, suggestions to find remedy upon illness as well as clues to some medical treatments have been broadly put forward in these guidelines.   The Prophet Muhammad has also presented many examples or models of coping with diseases and simple treatments that works well in healing, which can be practiced by Muslims. The core treatments thought by the Prophet Muhammad can be divided into three parts: spiritual treatment, material treatment, and moral treatment. There is no contradiction between the Prophet’s method of healing and that of the modern practice; therefore there is no need to debate upon the two different medical treatments. What needs to be noticed is the guidelines that have been outlined by the Quran and the Sunnah, such as that to avoid treatments with elements of shirk (heresy) or haram (forbidden), and to believe that medicine and healers are just intermediaries.

Abstract

This article discusses the reinterpretation effort of the Muslim feminist movement in Malaysia, Sisters in Islam (SIS,). The article looks at the effort of the group in reinterpreting some verses of the Qur’an and hadiths on the issue of women in marital relationship which in their view had been misinterpreted by Muslim male exegetes. Using the textual analysis method, the article examines some of the works written and commissioned by the association and its authors on this issue. In four sections, the article explores four works of the association on the following issues, namely (i) Are Muslim men allowed to beat their wives?, (ii) Guardianship law and Muslim women, (iii) hadith on women in marriage, and (iv) Islam and family planning or Muslim women’s reproductive rights. While the first and second parts discuss the issue of wife beating and guardianship law and Muslim women, the third and fourth parts examine hadith on women in marriage and Islam and family planning. Through its analysis of these works, the article concludes on the note that these works were mostly influenced by the works of Muslim feminist scholars such as Amina Wadud and Fatima Mernissi and as such contain controversial reinterpretations of the verses of the Qur’an and hadiths.
