  • Pro Kontra I’jaz Adady Dalam Al-Qur'an

    Rahman, Syahrul (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2017-06-21)
    Semenjak dikenalkan oleh Naufal, I’jaz adady telah mengalami perkembangan yang cukup luar biasa. I’jaz adady merupakan satu tawaran metoda baru dalam melihat kemukjizatan al-Qur’an, bermula dari kesesuaian penggunaan kata dalam al-Qur’an, sekarang cakupan teori ini telah meliputi kemukjizatan angka 11, angka 7, dan angka 19. Di sisi lain, ulama tradisional masih belum bisa menerima kajian ini sebagai bagian dari kajian ulum al-Qur’an. Dalam pandangan mereka, konsep teoretis i’jaz adady belum terbangun dengan kokoh dan terkesan tidak rasional. Di antara kelompok yang mengkritisi ini ada yang secara radikal menyangsikan keberadaan dan keabsahan diskursus ini dan ada juga yang mengapresiasinya dengan menyatakan ketepatan penggunaan kata dalam hitungan matematis bahagian dari ketelitian al-Qur’an bukan bagian kemukjizatan al-Qur’an.
  • The Teaching Of Religious Moderation In The Arba’in Hadith Of Mahfuzh al-Tarmasi and The Arba'in Hadith Of Hasyim Ash'ari

    Muqtada, Muhammad Rikza (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)
    In the first of 20th century, there were two local hadith books written by two archipelago scholars whose teacher and student status, namely the al-Minhah al-Khairiyah fî Arba’îna Hadîtsan min Ahâdîtsi Khair al-Bariyyah by Mahfuzh al-Tarmasi (d. 1919/1920 AD) and the Arba’ûna Hadîtsan Tata’allaqu bi Mabâdi’u Jam’iyyatu Nahdlatu al-Ulamâ’ by Hasyim Ash'ari (d. 1947 AD). Both of books have a different theme structure from the Arba'in tradition books written by their teachers in the Middle East. For this reason, this paper focuses on how the writing context and the intelectual discourse are contained in the text. The two books of Arba’in hadith were written in order to counter wahabism that at that time attacked the religious thoughts and practices of the archipelago Muslims with the accusations of takfirism. The morality in these books is more directed to moderate the attitudes towards anyone, even against the enemy. As like Ritchey, yellow book or turats is an effective medium for moderating religious attitudes in Islam
  • The Logic Probability On Hadith (Counting Gender Occupants Of Heaven And Hell)

    Wazna, Ruhama; Ilyas, Hamim (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)
    This study aims to explore probability as one of the new methods of understanding the hadith about the majority of women who inhabit hell by integrating the ratio of male and female hadith at the end of time as the counting scale. The use of the thematic-multidimensionality method, this study construed and elaborated the related hadith (al-jam'u bain al-adillah). The results of the study revealed that the more women than men in the world, affecting the majority of women as residents of heaven and hell, and vice versa, affecting the minority of men as residents of heaven and hell. It proves the misogyny assumed in the hadith was not essential. Thus, it is not appropriate if this hadith used as a tool to discredit women have a bad character so that they become the most occupants of hell than men, or conversely reject the hadith that is authentic only because of reasons contrary to reason

    Wendry, Novizal (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)
    The debate over the origin of the wind between medieval scientists and theologians became a hot issue. Scientists that consist of philosophers based their arguments on empirical facts and theologians werebased on the revelation of al-Qur’an and Hadith. One of the medieval theologians was al-Majlisī (1037-1110/1627-98). He interpreted cosmological verses based on the process, categorization, and the term of al-Qur'an. This research is a library research usinga historical approach to obtain data and conducting content analysis. As for the term related to the Qur'an about wind, a semantic approach was used. Primary data was the work of al-Majlisī, Biḥār al-Anwar. The results of the study indicated that al-Majlisī rejected the astrological theory which stated that wind is a spin of air originating from the smallest particular composition of the earth, heated, and subjected to evaporation. According to al-Majlisī, the wind caused by God's willin power to blow it with the intensity that He desired. According to al-Majlisī, the wind can be distinguished whether it is beneficial or not as found in al-Qur'an

The classification of anthropocentric verses as a result of this research are: 1) Humans as the most glorified creatures 2) Humans as creatures that have power in nature, and 3) Humans as caliphs on earth. Several hermeneutical analyzes of the anthropocentric verse have been obtained. Human must not be arrogant as creatures that degrees are glorified. Humans are instructed not to cause damage on the earth and must be able to do good ihsân to all creatures created by Allah SWT. The obligation of humans as caliphs on earth is to prosper the earth rather than damage the earth

    Rohmansyah, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta; Rohmansyah, Rohmansyah (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)

He tends to understand the hadith textually under certain conditions, but on the other hand it tends to be contextual depending on the situation and environmental conditions he experiences or ṣāliḥun li kulli zamānin wa makānin. Besides, it is undeniable that the understanding is less from the methodology of hadith understanding that was initiated by contemporary hadith experts such as textual understanding of tasyabbuh hadith and hadith of pilgrimage to the Prophet's tomb. However, he understands the hadith about intercession contextually
  • Reinterpretation Of QS. al-A‘Râf [7]:11-25 On Hoax: Hermeneutics Study Of Ma’na-Cum-Maghza

    Amir, Abdul Muiz (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)
    This article examines the interpretation of QS. al-Araf [7]: 11-25 by dialoguing the story of the Success of Adam and social reality. Dialogue that discusses the issue of the history of hoax, the strategy of making hoax, the impact, and handling of hoax issues. This research uses qualitative with hermeneutics ma'na-cum-maghza  theory. This interpretation shows that hoax are phenomena that have existed since the beginning of human kind (Prophet Adam). The unfair contestation and an inability to accept differences caused the policy tendency. This hoax strategy is carried out through logical agreement and approving of oaths that seem right. How to handle habits can only be done through internalizing the nature of sincerity and waiting as a form of grace to accept all forms of diversity, and to cultivate a critical nature of all information received. Besides, the government also needs to take and resolve not only to provide punishment to the victims but also need to get rehabilitation to avoid prolonged depression

    IAIN PONOROGO; Ainurrofiq, Faiq (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-12-31)
    This study examines the hadith about the failure of a nation when led by women. Textually, the meaning of the hadith is contrary to social reality that exhibits the number of women to become leaders in the political sphere. Using the contextual approach of double movement hermeneutics, Fazlur Rahman, this study compares textualist and contextualist methods in interpreting the hadith based on the meaning of the text and the historical, social and political context that underlie the emergence of the hadith. Based on the results of the study, it was found that the cause of a person's inability to be a leader was not because of his gender but because of lacking the capacity to be a leader. It can be found leaders who fail because they do not have leadership capacity, only with popularity, money, and political dynasties, and less capable in leadership. Lastly, this type of leader is addressed by the hadith, not the focus on gender
  • THE DEFENSE OF HADITH SCHOLARS AGAINST AHL AL-RA’Y MADHHAB (Study of Thought Shaikh ‘Abd al-Fattâh Abû Ghuddah)

    Muslim, Adi Abdullah (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-07-30)
    Debate between hadith scholar and Islamic jurisprudence has occurred since the time of the founding of fiqh madhhab that was dominated by Imam Abû Hanîfah in Kufah (as a representation of ra’y), and Imam Malik in Medina (as a representation of hadith scholar). Then the figure of Imam al-Shafi’i emerged as the mediator for them, he was given the title Nasir al-Sunnah. This study explains the existence of scholars of hadith - Shaikh Abd al-Fattâh Abû Ghuddah - who adhered to Ahl al-Ra’y madhhab of Imam Abû Hanîfah, defended the accusations against his madhhab, and also wanted to prove that Imam Abû Hanîfah was a textualist. This is a library research using content analysis. This study indicated that Imam Abû Hanîfah who was held by Abû Ghuddah as Ahl-al-ra’y madhhab did not make his madhhab understanding be rationalist in the field of hadith. He often in issuing fatwas based on ra’y. As a textualist cleric, he put nash in perseverance not prioritize qiyas and reason

    Rahman, Yusuf (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2019-07-30)
    This study aims to examine responses and receptions of Indonesian Muslim scholars on Western non-Muslims scholarship in the study of al-Qur’ān and tafsīr. Generally, the reception of their works can be divided into two responses: positive and negative. Yet, this study focuses on negative responses. The findings indicate that the responses are theological and polemical. The main sources of this study are works - printed and online - written by the opponents of Western scholarship in Indonesia. These works are analyzed chronologically to see the reasons behind their rejection. This study shows that Indonesian Muslim scholars responded negatively to Western scholarship on Qur’ānic studies because Western scholars have a hidden agenda in their works. This attitude, the article argues, is very polemical because it essentially generalizes the whole Western scholars have an ulterior motive for destroying Islam and al-Qur’ān. Basically, the research findings state that Western non-Muslim scholars are very diverse, and sometimes even contradictory. Thus, Muslim scholars are expected to participate in enriching Qur’ānic studies by supporting or refuting their findings, or providing new findings

    Banjarese, an ethnic group in South Kalimantan, were estimated to have migrated to Tembilahanand its surroundings in the 19th century following the defeat of the Banjar Sultanate bythe Dutch colonialists. The religious intellectualism rooted in the Banjarese tradition has untilnow resulted in the production of ‘ulema (religious scholars) even in new places to which theyhave migrated. Using in-depth interviews with several figures in Tembilahan, this preliminarystudy sheds light on how Banjarese ‘ulema in the area have contributed to the transformationof society. This study is important as there has not been solid research-based informationabout this important topic publicly available. It found that Banjarese ‘ulema have played animportant role in educating people through formal and informal ways to be religiously committedand socio-economically active. They have demonstrated dynamic relations with society, butsome of them were not immune from political and material temptations. It seems that the fartherthey stay away from such temptations, the more charisma they develop, and the more the opportunities they may have to contribute to the social transformation of Tembilahan society

    Akhyar, Yundri; Wilaela, Wilaela (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2018-12-13)
    Education should lead to creating human beings who believe in the Divine. Here, their personality in the characteristics of ‘Ibadurrahman is to become true believers, as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an. Such characteristics as the faithful servants of God are necessarily taught in Islamic education. The word ‘Ibadurrahman as stated in the Qur’an (Surah al-Furqan, verse 63-77) is indeed the core of character education. This article describes what and how the character of ‘Ibadurrahman works and how it constructs the objectives of Islamic education. Methodically, this article is a library research considering the data examined and analyzed are based on library references. The result shows the Holy Qur’an has set an example of human personality, a true believer who owns the character of ‘Ibadurrahman, the loving servant of God. To this end, the millennial character education must refer to constructing the personality of ‘Ibadurrahman to build civilization

  • UNRAVELING THE OLD-FASHIONED MUSLIMS: Responding to The Challenges of Modernity

    Yazid, Syaifulloh (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2018-12-13)
    Muslims have a lot of potentials in terms of human resources (HR), natural resources (NR) and Islamic ideologies. Sadly, they are far from being established, prosperous, progressive and prosperous as they have two main challenges they must face and resolve. First, internal challenges which includes terrorism movements due to wrong understanding of Islamic teachings. Second, external challenges, such as the fear of the Europeans and the West against Islam and its adherents (Islamophobia), clash civilization stigma, and Muslim backwardness in developing science. Due to these two main challenges, it is necessary to find a solution to face and deal with them, so that the Muslims can rise above their adversity. The internal solution, for example, is to encourage them to understand the true, inclusive and interactive teachings of Islam so that they truly become a guideline and solution for any individuals and Muslims themselves. It is expected to abolish radicalism’s understanding and movement and motivate the Muslims to improve the development of science and technology. In the meantime, the external solution includes bridging communication to demonstrate the true teachings of Islam which are inclusive, merciful and interactive to eliminate Islamophobia. In addition, conducting collaborative scientific and technology-based research at international level to catch up with the modernity is also a good option

    Ro’uf, Abdul Mukti (Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, 2018-12-13)
    This article describes the current map of contemporary Islamic thought in term of understanding the relation between legacy (turâth) and modernity within the context of Arab-Islamic renaissance. Some paradigms of thoughts raised by various critical Arab thinkers converge into one general goal: reviving Arab-Islam civilization from its long hibernation. The theme of “self-criticism” (an-naqd al-dhâtiy) has become a core issue that dominates the discourse of contemporary Islamic thoughts and encompasses other paradigms such as Marxism, liberalism, fundamentalism, nasionalism and post-traditionalism. Although they have a common goal, they have distinctive methods in reading and treating the relation between legacy and modern

    This article critically examines the role of Sufism in the process of social change in society,especially among urban societies that are symbolized by their middle class society. The subjectin this study is the Shalawat Muhammad Assembly under Mursyid Gus Kahar and his successor,Gus Mustakim. Although the assembly represents the urban sufism, but it has rooted fromclassical Sufism. In analyzing the role of this assembly in the process of social change in society,the theoretical framework of Cultural Brokers and Cultural Trendsetter of Geertz and Hirokosiare used as perspectives. The result simultaneously, consistently, and progressively shows thatSufism has a major contribution in any social change of societies to the value and ideology fromthe outside. The inherent value system in Sufism symbolized by the guru (murshid), is not just arole as a cultural broker as mentioned by the theory of Geertz. In fact, all gurus (mursyid) arewilling to change the value and ideology from the outside into a new system of traditions andcultures. This phenomenon resembles the cultural role of kyai in the Islamization of Indonesiain the past. It is the same like the theory of the cultural trendsetter of Hirokosi
