 The on-going campaign Malaysia is waging against corruption has gained momentum. Tunku Abdul Aziz called it an “All-Malaysian duty” in which everyone should take part regardless of political affiliation (NST, 5 January, 2013). I would also add that it is an all-Muslim duty and an appeal to the religious conscience of the Muslims of this country. Playing a proactive role in this campaign is a veritable ʿamal salih, the right moral action that the Qur’an repeatedly enjoins upon all Muslims. It is also an act with great societal benefit that elevates the standing of the ummah and Malaysia in the international community.

Membumikan Syariah

Monday, 26 August 2013 16:46 Published in Books

Akhir- akhir ini, mungkin tak ada perdebatan yang lebih serius di dunia Muslim selain tentang syariah. Meskipun hampir semua Muslim percaya bahwa syariah merupakan bagian tak terpisahkan dari Islam, mereka berbeda pendapat tentang bagaiman pelaksanaannya. Sebagian memandang bahwa syariah cukup dilaksanakan di tingkat pribadi dan komunitas, dalam sebuah negara  yang melindungi kepentingan Islam. Di sisi lain, sebagian beranggapan bahwa konstitusi negara harus berdasarkan Islam untuk menjamin pelaksanaan syariah secara utuh. Perdebatan ini sedemikian sengitnya, hingga terkadang mengakibatkan tindakan kekerasan.

Buku ini menawarkan sebuah rekeman perdebatan tentang syariah dan perlaksanaannya di berbagai zaman dan tempat. Dengan bahasa yang serdahana dan contoh-contoh aktual, penulis juga akan membawa para pembaca ke dalam kajian tentang hakikat syariah dan kaidah-kaidahnya, serta ijtihad para ulama di sepanjang zaman tanpa terjebak ke dalam semgat sektarian.
