Erni Haryanti Kahfi, Muminatul Zanah, Saeful Anwar

Abstract

This article is aimed at revealing the dynamic facts of fatwas issued by the Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI) as the fatwas often raise contestation. The article is based on a qualitative study with applied research is its design. It employs interview, questionnaire, and document analysis. The interview transcription and document collection are interpreted by using content analysis. The study also uses a Guidance Book and procedure of how deciding the MUI’s fatwas as complementary data. From data analysis, the findings show that MUI has produced various types of fatwas from 1975 to now. Fatwas are produced by the commission of Fatwa, but since the Reformation period the MUI has also built another special committee of fatwas: Council of National Islamic Law (DSN). The different types of fatwas and commissions clearly show that the issuing fatwas are not only based on religious reasoning, but also social, political, economic backgrounds. All those fatwas should ideally prove the existence of dynamic facts and provide learning on the ideal inter-relations between the MUI and Indonesian Muslim society as well as the MUI and the Governments.
