Abstract

Shaykh Muhammad Arsyad Al-Banjari is a religious central figure who has key roles in introducing new religious ideas in South Kalimantan. In this context, his thoughts are not only in the area of religion but also in education. There are at least four significant points of Al-Banjari’s thought on education. First, the educational paradigm was under the umbrella of neo-Sufism which emphasized on bayani, ‘irfani and burhani. Second, the institutional education introduced is a semi-formal education in which the study was concentrated in one place. Third, the teaching methods used are macro and micro. Macro method includes contextualization, centralization and integralization. Micro method covers uswah hasanah, halaqah, lecturing, and question and answer. Above all, the material for religius study in Al-Banjari’s period was deeper and wider compared to the era before Shakh  his arrival. The use of various books for studying was so illustrative

Abstract

The interrelation between Islam, state and pluralism is an unfinished discussion in Indonesia. This paper examines an issue of promoting individual freedom to practice his/her belief, and at the same time not insulting the majority belief in a plural society. It takes the case of Yusman Roy on performing the salah (prayer) in a local language as the subject of analysis in order to identify the fault lines of religion and pluralism, and to consider how best to address them. The paper argues that fatwa and court should not be used as mechanisms to deal with the issue of religion and pluralism. It further argues for an “alternative dispute resolution” in dealing with the plurality of interpretation within Islamic tradition and at the same time maintaining the unity and harmony Islamic communities. It maintains that Roy should have the rights to practice what he believes, but at the same time, a negotiation on how he spreads his ideas outside his schools should take place in order to avoid provocative actions that invite violence.

Abstract

Research on the history of Islam and its dissemination on the island of Maluku have hitherto been lacking analytical depth. This paper tries to fill that gap by analysisng four stages in the development of Islam on the Island, referring to approaches to study Islam and Muslims. First, the stage of integration in which Islam tried to incorporate local values and their ramifications. Second, the stage of war and resistance in which the attempts of Islam to become the dominant power on the region face a strong confrontation from the existing power. Third, the stage of reformation and renewal in which Islam interrogates and evaluates itself so as to present itself within the context of Maluku. Fourth, the stage of modern era in which Islam faces challenges not only from other religions mainly Christianity which is equally strong on the island, but also from modernity and its narratives.

Abstract

Religious freedom is one of the most pressing issues in contemporary Indonesia. Over recent years, the Ahmadiyah sect has become increasingly targeted by violent and conservative groups within mainstream Indonesian society. Semi-official organisations such as the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) and community-based groups such as Front Pembela Islam have sought to isolate Ahmadis within Indonesian society. Ahmadis have had their homes attacked, their mosques closed, and in the most grievous instance, three Ahmadis have been killed. The state has been both present and absent throughout the recent rise in attacks made against Ahmadis. The state has proved to be a particularly ambivalent force. This article argues that calls for dialogues have failed to produce a necessary and positive outcome for Ahmadis. The article also shows how the 2005 fatwa issued by the MUI and the SKB of 2008 have been used to further marginalise the Ahmadiyah movement. Despite the significant work of many intellectuals and activists being done in many sections of society, the author is not optimistic in contemplating future trends.

Abstract

The involvement of the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS, Partai Keadilan Sejahtera) in the electoral democratic system in Indonesia raises a question whether it is possible for a political party with a deeply religious ideology to liberalize and entertain democracy. The decision to enter politics does not infrequently entail an abandonment of ideological purity. It represents an acceptance of the political order and power sharing-based politics. While identity and ideology are instrumental in political mobilization for PKS, it has no choice but to negotiate and interact with other political actors through coalitions and parliamentary politics. A modern party involved in a competitive and rule-based system, it is also required to broaden its electorate and reach out to non-Islamist voters. It is intriguing in this context to explore the party’s strategy to maintain its Islamist platforms and the base of support while allying itself with distinctly non-Islamist ruling elites, and engage in the pragmatic ruling coalition. Understanding the paradoxical roles of an Islamist party when involved in the on-going electoral democratic process, this paper also looks at the future of political Islam in Indonesia.

Abstract

This article is aimed at understanding the theology of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah better known in Indonesia as Aswaja in the construction of the scholars of the Nahdlatul Ulama in East Java. It particularly investigates the views of three leading figures, Kiai Luthfi Bashori from Malang, Kiai Muhyiddin Abdussomad from Jember, and Kiai Asrori from Surabaya.  The idea of the research comes into being as the result of somewhat lengthy debate among the NU elites concerning the problem of the application of Aswaja’s tenets in mainly three domains; theology, fiqh, and Sufism. Kiai Luthfi tends to look at the tenets of Aswaja in terms of theology, and tries to apply them practically through social movement that he works for. Kiai Muhyiddin  tends to understand those tenets as a set of jurisprudential principles, while Kiai Asrori understands them as a kind of Sufistic values. The article argues that different scientific orientation naturally brings about different approaches in looking at religious tenets and worldly issues. Different perspectives in concept and how this concept is to be applied just follow the difference in scientific orientation and approach.
THE NAHDLATUL ULAMA: Its Early History and Contribution to the Establishment of Indonesian State Ismail, Faisal

Abstract

Established on 31 January 1926 in Surabaya, East Java, by some prominent kyais like K.H. Abdul Wahab Hasbullah and K.H. Hasyim Asy’ari, the Nahdlatul Ulama was born in the culture of pesantren where ‘traditional Islam’ has been rooted and preserved. In this context, the Nahdlatul Ulama declared its religious ideology as ‘ahl al-sunnah wa al-jama’ah.’ This religious ideology has become important characteristics of the Nahdlatul Ulama that differentiate itself from Muslim ‘modernist’ organizations. In its early movements, the Nahdlatul Ulama plyed a pivotal role by, for example, banning the Muslim youths from entering the Dutch military service, prohibit­ing the Muslims from supporting the Dutch army, and rejecting the Dutch aid which was offered to the Nahdlatul Ulama’s madrasas. Furthermore, together with other nationalist movements, the Nahdlatul Ulama actively took part in the process of establishing the Indonesian State and in the war to defend the Indonesian independence against the Dutch who tried to re-establish their colonial rule in Indonesia. These facts, undoubtedly, proved that the Nahdlatul Ulama made a great contribution to the nation and state of Indonesia.

Abstract

This article deals with Metode Terjemah Gandul (MTG, literally “hanging translation method”) or popularly known as utawi iki iku translation method. It presents two points about the method that has been widely used for translating Arabic-Islamic books to local languages in Indonesian pesantrens. First, it denies the prevailing opinion that MTG is unique only to Javanese pesantrens. The paper shows some similar translation methods in other local languages such as Sundanese, Maduranese, and Malay. Second, the researcher promotes three main agendas concerning the MTG history. Although the method is widely used in Indonesia pesantrens and is regarded one of the most valuable pesantrens intellectual properties, its history has not clearly uncovered yet. The three research agendas include: (1) who was the creator of the MTG; (2) what language was initially used; and (3) when was the MTG created. The research gives the limited answer for each question which could lead to further and deeper researches and studies.

Abstract

Ideas in psychology are often criticized as being dominated by the spirit and the model of secular and liberal Western thinking. They are frequently deemed to bring bias when applied to analyze the psychological problems of human beings in the context of other cultures, especially in the context of Islamic culture. This paper investigates Indonesian Muslim scientists’ offer of an alternative of grand theory in psychology formulated from a more balanced paradigm called religious anthropocentric psychology. Indonesian Muslim scientists develop this paradigm as an attempt to construct spiritual-religious psychology or Islamic psychology. The paper describes an increasing awareness among those Muslim scientists to develop theories of humanistic psychology with spiritual and religious values. This kind of psychological theory seems to be the basis for so-called Islamic psychology. Furthermore, in addition to its reference toward the anthropocentric paradigm, this kind of psychology also refers to the religious-Islamic values, theo-centric or God-centric.
