Abstract

The flexibility in using digital media as a result of the incessant era of globalization is a phenomenon which cannot be avoided at this time. This phenomenon also has implications for the realm of religion where there are many al-Qur’an and translation applications that are called new mushaf. The existence of this new mushaf, also has an impact on the formation of a new Muslim generation which by Muhammad Sahal Sobirin is called Digital Literate Muslims Generation, a generation of Muslims who depend on the use of al-Qur’an and translation applications. In order to respond to this phenomenon, this article was prepared by emphasizing aspects of i’jazal-Qur’an based on the theory of la taradufa fi al-Qur’an in Aisyah Abdur Rahman bintu Syathi’s perspective, as an affirmation of the complexity of the divine message of al-Qur’an that cannot be achieved only by understanding translation.

Abstract

This paper introduces the work of Mahfuzh at-Tarmasi (d. 1920 M) in the field of hadith, entitled al-Minhah al-Khairiyah fi Arba’in Haditsan min Ahaditsu Khair alBariyah, known as Arba’in at-Tarmasi. This book contains 40 hadiths written musalsal (genealogically) originating from Kutub al-Sittah and Tsulatsiyat al-Bukhari. This is based on the hadith practice on the virtue of gathering 40 hadiths of Nabawi. Interestingly, the main themes carried by this book focused on four things: aqidah (theology), ubudiyah (worship), mu’amalah (social relations) and siyasah (political strategies). These four things are important pillars in the reality of the life of Nusantara Muslim communities, considering that the period in Indonesia was experiencing colonialism by Dutch imperialism. At-Tarmasi (d. 1920 M) reminded of the importance of studying the pillars directly from the source.

Abstract

Sexuality is an interesting yet controversial topic in Indonesian culture. The discourse of morality makes it taboo in public. In patriarchy culture, women are always placed as an object of sexuality. In Islam, it also becomes an important topic discussed in Alquran. Now the phenomenon of sex exploitation spreads through the oppression of women’s body. The capitalist uses it to construct a discourse of women’s beauty, to exploit women’s body, and to use seduction to obtain some profits. One of the examples is sales promotion girl (SPG) phenomenon. This reality has influenced some novelists to raise this theme as their main novel topic. One of them is Indah Hanaco. This paper reveals the representation of women’s sexuality in Indah Hanaco’s novel entitled “The Curse of Beauty”. Indah Hanaco had been influenced by the phenomenon of SPG surroundings. Many SPG had trapped in prostitute caused by their sociality lifestyle constructed by the capitalist. They were forced to sell their body to get money to beautify their appearance. It became very important because it was an asset for them. Actually, it was not only about economic motif, but also psychological motif which affected their consciousness. This phenomenon was also widely discussed from the Islamic perspective, especially in the Alqur’an.

Abstract

This paper deals with Gadamer’s hermeneutical theory and how relevant it is to the study of Islam, which in this case is applied in the hadith “the involvement of angels in sexual relations”. The concept of Gadamer greatly emphasizes the merger of the horizons, the horizon of the text and the horizon of the reader. Merging the horizons will then generate meaningful sense. Meaningful sense is what according to Gadamer, can be applied in the reader. When Gadamer’s hermeneutical theory is applied in the hadith of “the involvement of angels in sexual relations”, a reader of hadith should be able to combine the horizon of the hadith, how it is understood in the time of the Prophet, and the horizon of the reader, the needs and conditions of the present. From the merger, it was found that the meaningful sense of the hadith is “keeping and maintaining harmony of husband and wife relationship”. Meaningful sense of this hadith should be applied in the present, regardless of the nature of the relationship between husband and wife. So Gadamer’s hermeneutical concept can be said to be relevant to eliminate the issues that develop today about gender bias.

Abstract

This article answers the question of how the form of revitalization of local wisdom in Aceh culture as the capital to resolve conflicts in the community. The important thing that will support this article is how Islamic ideas and Acehnese culture combine into one formulated from within, at least strengthening traditional institutions as the basis for managing Aceh culture is an important discourse to measure indicators of the ongoing settlement of Islamic conflicts. The results indicate that the re-actualization of Aceh culture which had been submerged by the conflict and tsunami, has now been revived especially on the social bases that were lost and even blurred. When there was a conflict in the Acehnese community, the mechanism for resolving conflicts was carried out using the Acehnese cultural approach known as Di’et, Sayam, Suloh, Peusijuek and Peumat Jaroe, involving Aceh traditional institutions at the village level, such as the geuchik (village headman), teungku imum and traditional leaders. This local wisdom in the discourse of the Aceh Government has reached the implementation of policies by making regional regulations through qanun to revitalize Aceh’s local wisdom by reviving some traditional institutions that have not been functioning.

Abstract

Epistemology of knowledge, also epistemology of legal studies, which is derived from the senses, rationality, and inner voices, has their own analysis methods to attain truths; inductive reasoning to seek validity of empirical knowledge, deductive reasoning for knowledge based on reason or rationality, and intuition for that derived from inner voices. The three analysis methods often lead to debate and contradicting claims creating a conflicting truth in epistemology.This conflicting claims of truth results in stagnancy, deviation, and distortion, in which the truth attained during the process may be misused for certain parties, since in the field of law, truth may be established to accommodate one’s needs. Therefore, it is crucial to create a concept which reconciles various epistemologies in knowledge, as well in legal studies, which is through a convergence of epistemology in legal studies through the perspective of Islamic philosophy. Through Islamic philosophy which is based on Quran, a conflicting knowledge derived through the senses, rationality, and inner voices will reconcile in one central point.Islamic philosophy which is based on Quran is the basis for epistemological truth derived from the senses, rationality, and inner voices, to simultaneously and jointly understand and complement each others’ strengths and weaknesses through a circular triadic process in order to reach reconciliation.

Abstract

 The historiography of Indonesian political diplomacy in the Middle-East regions faces obstacles from the researchers themselves. The perspective contradictions are compounded by sorting data and sources. The appearance of Indonesian political diplomacy in the Middle East regions according to the Middle East researchers and academics themselves seems to be gloomy and lethargic, because they demand more than what Indonesia has achieved and done. Indonesia is considered not too interested in contributing to the recovery of conflict countries and the acceleration of the transition to democratic values. According to the other researchers who are not based on the Middle East institutions, the appearance of Indonesian political diplomacy in  the Middle East is quite positive and slightly vague. Unlike the case with the version that came out directly from the Government of the Republic of Indonesia about their achievements and performance in building diplomatic relations with related countries in the Middle East. Some achievements are recorded annually and submitted to the public in their annual reports. The constraints in historical writing can be overcome by the historical reasoning approach which tries to examine reason, thought and awareness, and which not only focuses on historical facts and events themselves. This approach is able to map the narrative contestation and discourse ideology, and find solutions to the problems.
