Abstract

The emergence of a new generation of women writers from the pesantren tradition is an interesting issue in the landscape of Indonesian Islam. Especially, after for a long time, the authorship in the pesantren tradition has been dominated by men. This paper provides a brief description of the writing tradition in the pesantren. It examines how the writing tradition has been developed by the students. It also describes the extent to which women are involved in the writing tradition of pesantren and explores some differences between older generations and the new generation. The paper argues that the most influential factor in the writing achievement among young women writers is self-esteem and learning environments including family and pesantren. Self-esteem is partly developed in a learning environment in which the writers can sharpen their writing skills, strengthen their identities, and broaden their minds. The education system in the pesantren can offer valuable programs to support for this career development.

Abstract

This paper attempts to answer how Islamic Women define the concept of beauty in Ponds advertisement white beauty facial foam and body lotion on television. This study uses a socio-semiotic approach described through three aspects of social context, namely field, tenor, and mode. It argues that Ponds’ definition of a beauty only refers to physical standards, that is, women who have white skin and use both Ponds White Beauty Facial Foam and Foam Body Lotion. Further, television through Ponds advertising is considered as a commercial institution that supports the main idea of capitalism. However, Islamic women consider beautiful physically and spiritually. It suggests that the beautiful women are those who obey and surrender to Allah SWT. In short, Islamic women do not agree with the meaning of beauty resulted from Ponds White Beauty Facial Foam and Ponds Body Lotion advertisement. Rather, beauty consists of both body and, more importantly, soul.

Hence, comparative linguistic discourse is very important for non-Arab learner in order to study Arabic language. This discourse will help them to understand certain general characteristics of the language so that it can enable them to interact easily with the language and practice it for the full acquisition of the language. This article will explore the comparative linguistic and the teaching of Arabic language for Indonesian students. The roles of the comparative linguistic in Arabic teaching will also be examined. In order to gain comprehensive understanding of its roles, several cases of language mistakes by Indonesian students will be analysed as well. The final part of this article will discuss the importance of the comparative linguistic in the compo­sition of the syllabus or curriculum of Arabic language teaching.

Abstract

With Muslims as majority population, religious authority plays important roles in Indonesia.

However, there is an emergence of the new religious elites in Indonesia, the muballigh, the dai and the last is the salafi ustadhs. In addition, this paper also discusses the contestation between the established power of religious authority and the the newly emerged salafi ustadh. Feeling threatened by the changging trend and the influence of the salaf, there are various responses from the existing authorities. The responses vary from discussion to violence. One example is the mubahathah held between Persis and Salafi. Through the event, both parties tried to contest and challenge each other’s authority. Using religious arguments and using some religious symbols, both parties actually try to maintain their religious authority.

Abstract

This paper discusses the thought and contribution of an Indonesian legal thinker, Hazairin, to the Indonesian legal system. It shows that Hazairin’s dynamic contribution lies not only in his revolutionary reform but also in his ability to influence the policy makers in drawing the legal products. Standing against the might of the colonial legal legacy, Hazairin was insistent in his position that Islamic law should be regarded as one of the sources for national legal system. This is despite the fact that he is the product of the Western educational system. His ideas are a kind of an intermingling spot between Islamic law, adat law and—to some extent—Western law. These issues will be exposed by relating to the circumstances that shape his ideas, and the social structure as well as the characteristics of the adat laws. Of particular interest is to pay attention to his socio-anthropological interpretation of the Qur’ān, which is aimed at showing its compatibility with society’s needs.

Abstract

The Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) has played an important role in guarding the Sunni orthodoxy in contemporary Indonesia. As it has chapters in almost parts of Indonesia in the provincial, district and municipality level, this role has been also translated into the local context. The strength of the MUI stems from “semi-officiality” and “semi-representative” nature of the organisation. This article is aimed to analyse this role in the post-New Order period, after the establishment of the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) of Banten province in 2001, especially in dealing with deviant beliefs or sects and shirk (polytheist) and bid‘ah (religious innovation) practices. It is to show that orthodoxy and heterodoxy is not purely religious, but also political, as this is related to the problem of authority and power.

Abstract

This paper discusses the roles of Islamic charitable organisations in running dakwah activities on Nias Island. By Showing how Islamic charitable organizations have attempted to create welfare programmes under the dakwah scheme, it investigates whether inclusive attitudes towards beneficiaries with different religious backgrounds have characterised Islamic social activism in ‘non-Islamic’ regions. As a Muslim minority area, post-disaster Nias Island has increasingly become a place where Islamic charitable associations and dakwah movements from outside Nias have attempted to deliver aid as well as to assist the communities, notably the Muslim minority population. As the outer islands and isolated regions have become an arena of contestation for religious missionaries, Muslim preachers to a certain extent should compete with Christian missionaries and indigenous religious groups. By way of a case study, this paper also examines the way in which Islamic charitable associations, negotiate between serving the Muslim community through dakwah, and serving humanity at large through social welfare activities.

Abstract

The debate surrounding theocracy and secularism among Indonesian Muslims has been recorded since pre-independence period in early part of the 20th Century until now. This article is an effort to examine the compatibility of Islam with the idea of democracy and the inclusion of shari’ah in it. The focus is on government administration and law. Using the approach of Islamic law perspective, the writer argues that the dichotomy between theocracy and secularism does not apply to Indonesia because he treats shari’ah as merely a philosophical reference. Shari’ah evolves as a living organism that transcends any debatable issues for benefit of ummah. In contemporary Indonesian political context, the substance of shari’ah had been manifested by implementing a democratic system based on a legal foundation for the benefit and welfare of ummah. Therefore, some political-legal institutions like Constitutional Court and Anti-Corruption Commission are considered as part of shari’ah implementation although they are not textually sanctioned by shari’ah.
