Adapting the concept of Barton (1997), both Madjid and Wahid are not only prominent public intellectuals but also can be considered intellectual&nbsp;<em>ulama</em>, scholars who combine the best of classical scholarship and intellectual leadership with modern secular and Islamic learning and participated alongside other public intellectuals in Indonesia's civil society forums. In addition, Greg Barton labels these personalities and characteristics of thought as Neo-Modernists or Neo-Modernist thinkers. This paper examines the interpretation of Madjid, who studied in a more Western academic culture, and Wahid, who studied in a Middle-Eastern country, on civil society as the manifestation of both Neo-Modernism's thought, followed by a discussion on the similarities and differences between the two ideas. Through an exploratory and comparative analysis, this study reveals that the Neo-Modernism interpretation of civil society articulated by both can be seen in their progressive thought towards Islam and society, Madjid with his idea of '<em>secularization'&nbsp;</em>and further changed into<em>&nbsp;'de-sacralization';&nbsp;</em>while Wahid with his thinking on<em>&nbsp;</em>the indigenization of Islam&nbsp;<em>(pribumisasi Islam)</em>. Their thoughts introduce an open, inclusive, progressive understanding of the relationship between Islam and civil society, asserting social pluralism and modernity and stressing the need for tolerance and understanding. Moreover, this paper also argues that both interpretations of Islam and civil society have been constructive for Indonesia in promoting democratic reforms, strengthening the importance of&nbsp;<em>the Pancasila</em> (the five pillars) foundation and state constitution, not religious sectarianism (theocracy), thus refuting the notion that Islam is incompatible with democracy and pluralism and assisting Indonesian society in the productive synthesis of Islamic ideas and modern concepts such as democracy, liberalism, and secularism.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Dito Alif Pratama WORKING WIVES, RESOLVING DYSFUNCTIONAL HOUSEHOLD HARMONY: A STUDY ON STRUCTURAL-FUNCTIONAL THEORY AND ISLAMIC LAW PERSPECTIVE 2023-11-24T09:11:38+00:00 Desi Anggraeni M. Ali Mubarok <p>Wives are often the economic contributors of families, especially those with low income. They are additional income earners for the family. This phenomenon also occurs in Temanggung Regency. They work in various sectors, from the domestic to the public sector, because most men in Temanggung work as farmers and laborers, so their income does not fulfill the family's economic needs. This article examines the phenomenon of working wives in Temanggung Regency from the perspective of Islamic law and Talcott Parson's structural-functionalism theory. In the Qur'an, the husband's responsibility is to complete the family's needs according to his portion of the duties because men have physical advantages over women. Islamic law allows wives to work in Temanggung if they do not neglect their primary duties as homemakers. However, Islam is not permitted if it will cause disharmony in the family. From Parson's perspective, it has been classified that the wife's job is to work at home, and the husband's job is to work outside, so there is no competition in the household. Regardless, working wives in Temanggung help husbands fulfill family needs to overcome dysfunctional household harmony</p> 2023-12-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Desi Anggraeni, M. Ali Mubarok ELUCIDATING ECO-RELIGIOUS IN ISLAMIC STUDIES AND THE FUTURE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS 2023-11-24T09:42:27+00:00 Muhammad Syihabuddin Zulfi Mubaraq M. Lutfi Mustofa <p>Environmental problems become humanitarian problems, such as damaged area layers, erosion, and disease outbreaks that make the ecosystem unbalanced, which will endanger humans. Meanwhile, the discussion of Islamic relations and environmental ethics has always continued to be debated, ranging from handling and solving to sustainable businesses. This paper aims to elucidate the eco-religious paradigm and implications of ecological ethics in Islamic studies, including environmental movements. The study employs the analytical descriptive literature research issue. Islamic study and environmental ethics functionally serve as a tool or media that provides insight into various approaches to comprehending the relationship between Islam and environmental ethics so as not to be trapped in the fanaticism of secularism and human arrogance in dealing with nature. This study contributes theoretically through relationship theory, inter-relationship to interaction in terms of religious and environmental ethics points of view. Also, it seeks to make practical contributions in the form of human spiritual awareness to preserve the environment as a form of constructing natural values (<em>hablu min al-‘alam</em>). Furthermore, environmental ethics continues to evolve, adjusting to the need to assemble harmony in the future.</p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Muhammad Syihabuddin, Zulfi Mubaraq, M. Lutfi Mustofa BEAUTIFYING MOSQUES, ENHANCING WORSHIP: THE FIQH PERSPECTIVE OF FOUR MADHHABS AND MUHAMMAD IQBAL'S AESTHETIC CONCEPT 2023-11-24T09:23:48+00:00 Mohamad Zakky Ubaid Ermawan Ahmad Khudori Soleh Mohammad Fadil Akbar Islamy <p>Muslims recognize the significance of mosques as sites of worship and as centers for their religious and other activities. Various efforts are organized and designed to make mosques relevant to cultural changes and the needs of Muslims. Mosque buildings are often not identical in each region and nation, with different customs and cultures, and are sometimes even similar to other religions. In addition, the temptation of capitalism also raises questions about mosque designs that are overly grand and problematic for the socio-economic life of the community. This article aims to interrogate whether such a well-built mosque is permissible from the perspective of scholars of the four madhhabs of fiqh and the aesthetics of Muhammad Iqbal. Thus, this research uses descriptive-interpretive and textual methods to scrutinize fiqh views and analyze Iqbal's aesthetic perspective on the mosque building. The study revealed that the four madhhabs allow decorations on mosque buildings so that the mosque remains the principal place of worship and does not inconvenience the solemnity of the congregation's prayers. Furthermore, the mosque's decoration, ornamentation, design, and construction must provide meaningful objectives with practical usefulness and philosophical value; otherwise, for Iqbal, decorating a mosque in excess is wasteful and unavailing, and embellishing a mosque means squandering time and money.</p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mohamad Zakky Ubaid Ermawan, Ahmad Khudori Soleh, Mohammad Fadil Akbar Islamy WIFE’S MENTAL DISORDERS AS A REASON FOR POLYGAMY: A STUDY OF ISLAMIC LAW ON CASE DECISIONS AT THE MAGELANG RELIGIOUS COURT 2023-11-24T05:52:21+00:00 Shanti Maharanti Rochi M. Ali Mubarok <p>This study discusses the considerations of the judges of the Magelang Religious Court in granting permission for polygamy. In this case, the applicant applied for permission to practice polygamy because his first wife had a mental disorder. This study aims to determine judges' Islamic legal considerations in making decisions. This type of research is library research, using an analytical descriptive approach. The panel of judges, in their decision, apart from being based on the juridical aspect, also referred to the rule of fiqh: "If there are two evils threatening each other, then watch out for the one with the greater evil by carrying out the one with the least evil," then granted the petitioner's request because it was judged that the evil was much smaller than rejecting it. The petitioner's ability to act reasonably towards their wives and children is also considered to have met the requirements for polygamy as emphasized in the Qur’an (surah al-Nisa [4]: 3), so that the granting of permission for polygamy by the panel of judges is following Islamic Law and not against Indonesian Law.</p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Shanti Maharanti Rochi, M. Ali M. Ali Mubarok EXPLORING THE EXEMPLARY ROLE OF SHEIKH HISAMUDDIN AS AN ISLAMIC PREACHER IN LAMONGAN, EAST JAVA: ANALYSIS OF LOCAL ISLAMIC HISTORY 2024-01-12T10:19:09+00:00 M Irsyad Al Abdillah Sharfina Nur Amalina Wanasa Rahmat Akbar Adzani Dinda Novita Sari <p>Islamization in Indonesia has been through a different process in each region. The spread of Islam in Indonesia has occurred in several ways, including preaching (<em>da'wah)</em>. Walisongo is an Islamic figure who plays a significant role in the spread of Islam, especially in Java. Besides Walisongo, other Islamic figures also preached to disseminate Islam in Indonesia. This research emphasizes the biography of Sheikh Hisammuddin and his contribution to Islamization, especially in Lamongan. The method used in the research is the historical method, which consists of five stages of research: topic selection, heuristic, source criticism, interpretation, and finally, the historiography stage. This research aims to comprehend the biography of Sheikh Hisamuddin, the model of the spread of Islam by Sheikh Hisamuddin in Lamongan, and the exemplary example of Sheikh Hisamuddin as a preacher of Islam. As a direct descendant of Sunan Ampel, he has his method of spreading Islam, such as a cultural approach, social approach, elements of <em>tawhid</em>, political methods, and Pondok Lelono. In addition to contributing to the development of Islam in Lamongan, Sheikh Hisamuddin has an exemplary attitude; he is a person who is diligent and pious, hardworking, wise, devout in worship, and firm.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 M Irsyad Al Abdillah, Sharfina Nur Amalina, Wanasa Rahmat Akbar Adzani , Dinda Novita Sari REINVESTIGATING THE GUIDANCE FOR JIHAD AGAINST COLONIALISM IN MALAY LANDS: A PHILOLOGICAL STUDY ON SHEIKH ABDUS SAMAD AL-PALIMBANI'S NASHIHAH AL-MUSLIMIN WA TADHKIRAH AL-MUKMININ 2024-01-15T10:24:52+00:00 Mia Fitriah El Karimah <p>The wars of the colonial era in the Malay region, especially in Sumatra, could not be separated from the influence of the jihad campaign of Sheikh Abdus Samad al-Palimbani, a charismatic cleric at that time. This research examines al-Palimbani’s <em>Nashihah al-Muslimin wa Tadhkirah al-Mukminin</em>, which contains the call for <em>jihad</em>. Because this manuscript is hundreds of years old and this condition makes it difficult to read, this research uses philological studies using a single script and standard script methods. It means that the manuscript being examined is the only one, and there are no copies. Research shows that the text is a European manuscript type even though it uses Arabic and the cover is identical to the typical style of the Arabian Peninsula. Apart from that, this manuscript also provides information about <em>jihad</em> by containing quotations from verses from the Qur’an and hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad. However, <em>jihad</em> here is understood to be limited to struggle on the physical war. Therefore, the manuscript encloses several <em>dhikrs</em> and prayers during the war. Furthermore, this manuscript was motivated by the colonial occupation of Malay land.</p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mia Fitriah El Karimah ATTAINING THE AUTHENTICITY OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE REVEALED TRUTH COMPREHENSIVELY FROM AL-ZAMAKHSHARI'S PERSPECTIVE 2024-01-12T10:23:28+00:00 Jarman Arroisi Martin Putra Perdana Adi Ihza Baharudin <p>Today, humanity is facing the challenge of the authenticity of knowledge. Various efforts have been made to reach the point of truth. However, these efforts have yet to yield optimal results. Therefore, this study aims to address the problem of the search for truth. This study employs descriptive analysis to analyze the attaining of truth that humanity has conducted thus far from al-Zamakhshari's perspective. From this, it is found that modern humans excessively rely on human reason, which is purely empirical; moreover, reason (<em>'aql</em>) plays a role in critical thinking in revealing various phenomena. He also states that reason holds a significant function and role in the Islamic philosophical approach. He asserts that reason is an essential tool for comprehending Revelation and attaining truth: to comprehend the literal and deeper esoteric meaning of the Qur'anic verses and to employ it in interpreting the Qur'an. Al-Zamakhshari also believes that reason plays a crucial role in moral and spiritual life: to enable the differentiation between good and evil and guide individuals towards the right path. Thus, reason becomes a tool to attain the value of truth. Through reason, humans can comprehend the meaning of Revelation, both outwardly and inwardly. It is because truth is not merely physical but also metaphysical; thus, reason must be accompanied by Revelation to attain the meaning of truth. Consequently, reason is the instrument in moral and spiritual life. </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jarman Arroisi, Martin Putra Perdana, Adi Ihza Baharudin FOR GOLD AND THE BLESSING OF GOD: THE RATIONAL CHOICE FOR USING THE RABU WEKASAN AMULET IN THE EAST JAVANESE MUSLIM COMMUNITY 2024-02-05T09:42:21+00:00 Devi Suci Windariyah Maskud <p>Several scholars have different opinions regarding the law of the Rabu Wekasan amulet that lives in the Javanese Muslim community. However, despite these differences, the East Javanese Muslim community still carries out and uses amulets to carry out these rituals. This research aims to determine amulet users' perspectives on life, mindset, and worldviews, especially in the Sempen, Sumbertengah, Mumbulsari, and Jember communities. Researchers use a rational choice theory where a person's actions are primarily determined by values or choices using data collection techniques such as interviews, observation, and documentation. The research results reveal three typologies of amulet users' mindsets: 1) Tabarrukan, using the Rabu Wekasan Amulet as a <em>wasilah</em> (intermediary) to ask for protection from Allah; 2) Economic aspect, using Rabu Wekasan amulets to protect their economic level from losses; and 3) Social aspect: using Rabu Wekasan amulets to maintain peace and public health.</p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Devi Suci Windariyah, Maskud
