Abstract

The slogan that the al-Quran suits all time and space should not be just a rethoric. It should be proven in reality instead. As we live today, the distance has been very long from the time and space of the revelation of the al-Quran. This long time and spatial gap create gaps between the al-Quran and its readers. Therefore, there should be efforts to minimize the gaps by safeguarding the value and themes of the al-Quran. One of the important efforts is contextualization and revitalization of Quranic messages. This can be done by obtaining deep understanding of the al-Quran to uncover basic and universal message of the al-Quran which bridge time and space. The next step is to apply it led by principles of ulum al-Quran such as asbab al-nuzul and the concepts of Makkiyyah-Madaniyyah. This article not only focuses on reinterpretation of the al-Quran, but also applies the concept of contextualization of the Quranic messages under the slogan of the al-Quran suits all time and space. In addition, this article also exposes the contextualization of the al-Quran with the context of contemporary Indonesia through the reinterpretation of three concepts of ghanimah, jihad, and ‎polygamy.

Abstract

Bani Alawiyyin is Arabian Muslims community scattering around the world. Their diaspora is due to many factors and motivations: religion (mission), economy, politic, culture, and so on. They are well-known as a community who hold tenacious principle in disseminating Islamic teaching based on the principle of rahmatan lil ‘ālamīn (blessing to universe). This article endeavors to cast light upon social-religious activities that have been practiced by Bani Alawiyyin prioritizing the courtesy aspects of all mankind. This article is also aiming at presenting data findings which can explain that Bani Alawiyyin had truly proselytized non-radical mission among people in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. This article also elucidates the role of Bani Alawiyyin especially in the form of institutional organization in transmitting Islamic doctrine in a peaceful mission. The finding shows that many organization are used by Bani Alawiyyin to spread Islamic teaching in different countries that lead to the success of their mission by determining local and indigenous factors.

Abstract

The study indicates that there is a tendency for family characteristics, functions, and structures to be questioned. Many people, for example, would consider unmarried couples, single mothers or single fathers, and homosexual couples to be the same legitimate expressions of family units. However, Indonesian Muslim family takes a more conservative stance, arguing that the family is a divinely inspired institution, with marriage as the starting point of its differentiation. The article explores what the family means for Muslims in general: its normative philosophy, its implement­tation in general and the challenges that will be faced. The goal is to offer an introduction to keywords and a general map of the problem. Some cases are presented as explanatory tools. The used method is library research by utilizing the results of previous research and then carried out contextualization in the Indonesian situation. There are several findings and one of the most important one is that within Indonesian muslim context, there are still several values upheld quite conventionally. Even the very basic of family issues that is the definition remains quite conservative and this is legally stated in several policies including the 1974 marriage law. In addition, there are also several interesting changes occur within Indonesian sociology of family and among the issues are roles divisions, divorces and arranged marriages.

Abstract

This article is concerned about everyday practice of marriage in religious community of Sumbersari, in Pasuruan, East Java. It analyses how actors and norms are involved to shape the practice. It also relates them to individual agencies of the couples. Materials of this article are based on my fieldwork that I did in early 2017. In this article, I suggest that the ideas of an ideal marital spouse are generally conceptualised in the set of localised notions of chastity (kesucian), good manner (apik), and good fortune (mompong) that necessarily culminate in the identity as santri (pious muslim). However, the implementation of these ideas are much dependent upon the roles of pelantar (traditional matchmaker) who mediates the communication of the two families concerned. In addition to pelantar, kyai (muslim cleric) is indeed important in the production of an Islam-based legal norm to control sexual morality that sometimes confronts against the state legal norm. Increasing participation in formal education and the rise of women?s mobility have challenged this pattern. Girls have an autonomy to choose her preferred partner. Mutual love becomes more important, although the decision of marriage timing sometimes still belongs to the parents? authority.

Abstract

Codification is a relatively new phenomenon in Islamic legal history. It intensified in the second half of the 20th Century with the adoption of modern nation state by Muslims which eventually replaced the judicial function of madhhab. Thus, fiqh must transform into state-sanctioned law to remain relevant, as it is also an avenue to apply Islamic law in Indonesian Religious courts. This article aims at unveiling the process of codification of three statutes of Islamic family law, but with different result. While KHI was successfully enacted, CLD KHI failed after facing fierce opposition from Muslim community. The different fate of these two statutes is at least due to two aspects; time and content. KHI was enacted in 1991 when president Soeharto was courting Muslim groups for political supports in his New Order authoritarian regime. Its content is somewhat mirroring the 1974 Marriage Law. Drafts of CLD-KHI was circulated in 2004 after the fall of Soeharto in which free speech is a norm. Content wise, CLD KHI featured liberal interpretation of Islamic family law or even departure from it which is prone to opposition from various Muslim groups.

Abstract

Religion and culture are inextricably connected like two sides of the same coin because in understanding the religion properly often requires knowing the culture that shaped it, and vice versa. This paper reports on the research of how Islam has interacted with Balinese Hinduism for several hundred years. Using historical-anthropological study with a phenomenological approach, this study has revealed that religious traditions practiced by Balinese Muslims are identical to the Hinduism-based local culture. It means that the existence of local culture in Bali highly influences Islamic practices, which are certainly distinct from those in the Middle East, especially Saudi of Arabia, as the cradle of Islam. The expressions of Islam are resulted from the dialogue between Islamic traditions with local culture, Hindu tradition in particular, which shapes Balinese?s distinctive Islamic identity that is more progressive, tolerant, and egalitarian.

Abstract

This article analyses the use of religion in Indonesian elections. It fundamentally argues that religion has been utilized by both secular and religious politicians to boost their electoral gain. Focusing on national and local elections in the past five years of Indonesian politics, this study suggests that religion is a significant instrument in the electoral decision-making process, both from the perspective of voters and candidates. Much of the data in writing this article derive from my current research project funded by the Indonesian Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education. Other data come from leading survey institutes, particularly Lembaga Survey Indonesia (LSI), Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting (SMRC) and Indikator Politik Indonesia.

Abstract

This paper comes with new perspectives in understanding the dynamics of Papuan society in relation to Islam and local “strongman”, especially in the frame of religious harmony. It enriches the research of how national political contestation affects the dynamics of religious harmony in Jayapura, Papua, through three important distinctions: first, socio-anthropological studies on how Islam and Muslim groups dynamics relate to the transformation of the society; second, the analysis of Islamic religious leaders’ roles in building religious harmony through local “strongman” perspective; third, the reframing of efforts in creating harmony in national, religious, and social life with multi-track diplomacies approach. This research with those three focuses results in a final lexicology: “building values/cultures does not mean tearing down entirely the existing ones; creating religious harmony does not need to eliminate teachings of any religions”. In other words, the process of assimilation, acculturation, and segregation at the most micro-level interactions, even individuals, has always to be recognized as an effort to create cultural amalgamation. In that way, local leaders of indigenous Papuans, bossism, and those who take refuge in cultural-structural organizations would never feel threatened with each other.
