One of the most famous verse in the Quran is “the Light verse.” Beside the metaphor of light, the verse includes the metaphors of “the niche”, of “the lamp”, of “the glass”, and others. The metaphor “God is the Light” is the vital feature of the analysis. The next metaphors in the verse are an extension of that metaphor. The “light” metaphor with its principal meaning as “source” will be analyzed using the theory of metaphor as created by Paul Ricoeur in <em>The Rule of Metaphor </em>(1978). The application of this concept will unfold how this metaphor is employed creatively. It makes a parable of the gradation of lights and contains how it is widened to cover a broader aspect of faith, i.e., being the center and open to accept His light. The result of this experiment with metaphors in the Light verse shows fresh analysis that God illuminates on every creation in all realms.</p> Nur Ahmad ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 211 227 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.279 Developments of Ḥadīth Riwāya in al-Andalus (2nd - 3rd Centuries of Hijriyya) http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/5 <p>This&nbsp;article&nbsp;examines&nbsp;the&nbsp;relations&nbsp;between&nbsp;Mālik&nbsp;schools&nbsp;and&nbsp;Andalusian&nbsp;scholars,&nbsp;the&nbsp;development&nbsp;of&nbsp;<em>ḥ</em><em>adīth</em> <em>riwāya</em><em>h</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;its&nbsp;relation&nbsp;with&nbsp;the&nbsp;social&nbsp;and&nbsp;cultural&nbsp;conditions&nbsp;in&nbsp;al-Andalus. Andalusian scholars, being influenced by views of Mālik b. Anas and his schools, made some tolerant standard for ḥadīth transmission. They did not make differences in narrative symbols and its hierarchy, except within the scope of the method. The validity of hadith is not solely determined by the strict criteria and subjective narrative, but also by the society and how they understand the narrative. There were social and cultural power relations with ḥadīth knowledge in al-Andalus&nbsp;that&nbsp;were&nbsp;influenced&nbsp;by&nbsp;critical&nbsp;and&nbsp;relative&nbsp;epistemology.&nbsp;Studies&nbsp;of&nbsp;hadith&nbsp;in&nbsp;al-Andalus focused more on the study of comprehension and meaning (<em>shar</em><em>h</em>) of ḥadīth, which&nbsp;give practical benefit and applicable knowledge to the society.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Muhammad Akmaluddin ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 228 252 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.5 Umrah Trends: Question Between Following Sunna and Spiritual Tourism http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/318 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;">Spiritual tourism is not a new phenomenon</span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;">.</span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;"> It has been studied from</span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;"> tourism perspective</span></em>s<em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;">. </span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;">However, when the tourism became a global trend of religious expression</span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;">,</span></em><em><span style="font-weight: normal !msorm;"> the perspective of the sociology of religion get its place.

Living Qur’an and hadith refers to various ways in which this scriptures are practiced in Muslim daily live. In South Borneo, this deals with the phenomenon of memorizing the Qur’an as a bride-price (<em>jujuran</em>) for marriage among the Banjarese people. This tradition has been practiced for various reasons. Using phenomenological method, this study records the views of the people peforming this tradition and attempts to explain its practice and meaning. This study reveals that <em>jujuran</em> is an acculturation of the Qur’an with the local tradition. The people believe in the power of the Qur’an and make this to bless their important life cycle, such as marriage. The <em>jujuran</em> reflects various reasons, ranging from groom’s seriousness to memorize the Qur’an and to marry and the best award for brides. However, most do not know the authoritative tradition from the Prophet regarding the bride-price of memorizing the Qur’an but are inspired by popular literature and novel that contain stories of the Qur’an as bride-price.</p> Munirah Munirah ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 278 297 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.319 Muslim Feminist Hermeneutical Method to the Qur'an (Analytical Study to the Method of Amina Wadud) http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/320 <p>Muslim feminist hermeneutical methods to the Qur’an is a response to the conservative interpretations which hegemonizes knowledge construction to shape the tradition and the methodology of the patriarchal reading of the texts. This approach demonstrates that the Qur’an is compatible with modernity and supports gender equality. This article explores one of the leading Muslim feminisit scholar, Amina Wadud, and examines her Qur’an feminist hermeneutical method. &nbsp;Amina Wadud is a Muslim feminist who proposes feminist hermeneutical method to interpret the Qur’an which she called ‘<em>tawhidic</em> paradigm.’ &nbsp;This article shows that Wadud’s hermeneutical approach interrogates the patriarchal reading of the Qur’anic verses that privileges one sex over another. According to her, in understanding the Qur’an three principles should be considered, namely: &nbsp;<em>first</em>, the context in which the Qur’an was revealed; <em>second</em>, the grammatical composition of the text; and <em>third</em>, the whole text, that is its <em>weltanschauung </em>or world-view.</p> Irma Riyani ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 298 314 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.320 The Concept of Tasbīḥ Al- Ālam (Universe’s Glorification): A Comparative Study of Fakhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī’s and Ibn ‘Arabī’s Interpretations http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/275 <p>In the Islamic doctrine, Allah is the creator, while the universe including human beings is the creatures. The universe glorifies Allah.&nbsp; Glorification is the proof of the universe’s obedience to Allah. The study aims to shed light on how the universe performs such a glorification. This article examines the concept of <em>tasbī</em><em>ḥ</em><em> al-‘ālam </em>proposed by Muḥammad bin al-Ḥusayn Fakhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (544 H/1149 AD – 606 H/1209 AD), a rationalist, in his book <em>Tafsīr</em> <em>al-Kabīr a</em><em>w</em><em> Mafāti</em><em>ḥ</em> <em>al-</em><em>G</em><em>hayb</em> and compares it with that of&nbsp; Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabī ( 560 H/ 1149 AD), a mystical interpreter, in his book <em>Tafs</em><em>ī</em><em>r al</em><em>-</em><em>Qur’</em><em>ā</em><em>n al-Kar</em><em>ī</em><em>m</em><em>. </em>This study shows that there are distinct processes and ways of how the universe commends to God. According to Ibn Arabī, the commendation by the universe is the process of getting annihilation and the unifiction of existence (<em>wa</em><em>ḥ</em><em>dah al-wujūd</em><em>)</em><em>;</em> while al-Rāzī clarifies that the process itself is in metaphoric meaning <em>(majāzi)</em> contingent upon the condition of each part of the universe.</p> Inarotul Aini ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 315 344 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.275 The Development of Hadith Study Controversy in Indonesia: A Study of Miṣbāḥ al-Ẓulām by Muhajirin Amsar al-Dari http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/276 <p>There has been a wide presumption that hadith literature authored by Indonesian Muslim scholars is simple and static. This article challenges this view. It examines <em>Mi</em><em>ṣ</em><em>b</em><em>ā</em><em>ḥ</em><em> al-</em><em>Ẓ</em><em>ul</em><em>ām, </em>a commentary of <em>Bulūg al-Marām,</em> by Muhajirin Amsar al-Dari to show the dynamic development of the study on <em>ikhtilāf al-</em><em>ḥ</em><em>ad</em><em>ī</em><em>th</em> (disputes over hadith). Grounded in the hermeneutic approach, this article argues that the development of hadith studies in Indonesia from time to time is not as simple as the general presupposition entails. This article shows that the development of hadith studies is raised following the provision of studies on <em>ikhtilāf al-</em><em>ḥ</em><em>ad</em><em>ī</em><em>th</em>. The tradition of writing hadith in Indonesia began in the 17<sup>th</sup> century and, as a result, a number of hadith literatures have been produced by Indonesian Muslim scholars. This development challenges some scholars’ perception that the studies of hadith in Indonesia remain simple and the science of hadith in the country is hardly available.</p> Fatihunnada Fatihunnada ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-27 2017-12-27 21 2 345 369 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.276 The Concept of Women’s Dress in Tafsir Nusantara: A Comparative Study of Four Indonesian Exegeses http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/278 <p>This research aims to compare four Qur’anic commentaries on the verses regarding women’s dress code. They are taken from the Indonesian Quranic commentaries representing different time i.e the classical era, medieval era and contemporary era. They are <em>Tarjum</em><em>ān al-Mustaf</em><em>īd</em>, <em>Tafsīr Qur’</em><em>ān Kar</em><em>īm</em>, <em>Tafsīr Al-Azhar</em>, and <em>Tafsīr al-Mi</em><em>ṣb</em><em>ā</em><em>ḥ</em>. The purpose of this research is to explain how the verse regarding women’s dressing are interpreted in these four works and how such interpretation influence the concept of women’s dressing. This library research relies its data mainly on Indonesian Quranic commentaries and on other related literatures as the secondary supporting data. This uses language aproachment to find the meaning of the main words on each verses. They are then understood comparatively to reveal different interpretation and the factors that cause such differences. This study shows that there are three concept of woman’s dressing based on each interpretation, (1) the clothes that cover whole body including the face and the palm of hand, (2) the clothes that cover whole body except the face and palm of hand, (3) the respectfull clothes that do not cover the part of the head.</p> Tri Hermawan Putri Rafa Salihah Muhammad Hafizh ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 21 2 370 390 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.278 Mustansir Mir and a Contemporary Literary Approach to the Qaṣaṣ al-Qur’ān: Study of Qur’anic Story of Joseph http://ulumuna.or.id/index.php/ujis/article/view/274 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The textuality of the Qur'an contains a high quality of literary aspect. Therefore, a literary approach to the Qur’an is one of the ways in the understanding of the meaning and message of it. This approach has been used by modern and contemporary Muslim scholars, and even by western scholars of Qur’an studies. This paper discusses Mustansir Mir’s thought and literary approach to the Qur’an, focusing on the story of Joseph. This study shows that Mir reflects on the nature and power of God and reveals the moral messages in the scene and structured dialogue on the passages in Sūra Yūsuf. It also reveals that Mir’s approach to the story is structural where he elaborates the structure, plot, and scene of the story and connects them with the moral message of the story.</p> Akrimi Matswah ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2018-05-02 2018-05-02 21 2 391 411 10.20414/ujis.v21i2.274
