Very interesting. Is there any Indonesian Islamic organization that you think will cause trouble in the Islamic community to come? With that I mean an organization which goes against mainstream opinion or is too ''liberal'' or ''conservative'' for the average Muslim in Indonesia?

I thought I'd chime in to this discussion. The difference between those two organisations actually goes beyond the minor ritualistic differences that Gutlia mentioned.

Nadlatul Ulama (the largest muslim organisation there) was established mostly as a response to the rise of Wahhabism in Indonesia and growing intolerance for local indigenous beliefs, like seeking karamat at the graves of saints and observing certain kejawen practices of the Yogyakarta Sultan’s court (to name a few, all of which AFAIK the Muhammadiyah sees as shirk). They’re historically traditionalists in the sense that they cling to the mystical form of Islam (tasawwuf) which was dominant during the early years of Islam in Indonesia. In recent years, though, certain figures within their leadership have earned criticisms from the more conservative Muslims there, most recently for visiting Israel and breaking bread during pesach with the rabbi of Jakarta.

Muhammadiyah, IMO, is more conservative in some aspects than the Nadlatul Ulama. When their founder died in the 1920s, a vacuum was left in the Muhammadiyah and it was filled by returning scholars from Mecca/Medina who studied under Wahhabi preachers. They oppose (sometimes strongly) local indigenous beliefs and aren't that tolerant of mystical Islam (tasawwuf). They instead favour “pure Islam” and want to rid Indonesia of its local beliefs.

If you ask me, I’m more supportive of the Nadlatul Ulama (I'm not very fond of Muhammadiyah tbh), but I suspect none of these organisations will cause trouble in the Islamic community there.

yes, I agree with you, Hindia Belanda. My opinion about the views of the Indonesian peoples about the daily worship of these organizations. But I am sure these two organizations will not cause problems. because Islam is here to solve human problems.

I think only few a bit radical likes FPI (Islamic defence front), Hizbut Tahrir (but was banned by the government for their activities because aims to turn the Indonesian republic state into a caliphate system.

212 movement can be said as momentary religious movement due to insulting the Qur'an and not organizations like Nahdlatul Ulama or Muhammadiyah. But after that, the 212 movement looks more towards the political movement because it supports one of the Indonesian president candidates.

Perhaps the Islamic Defenders Front. They've caused a lot of troubles there but I don't think they exert enough influence to really cause major problems y’know? In any case, they're still a big fucking nuisance imo :P

There are also some Islamic institutions there that continue to receive funding from the Saudis. I guess they’re the ones Indonesia needs to keep an eye on. An Indonesian youtuber made a video exposing some of these institutions in Indonesia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJJI54JVCoc

And I'm not really familiar with the 212 movement, but from what I've heard from my Indonesian relatives they're a pretty troublesome folk. The leader of the Islamic Defenders Front AFAIK had a hand in the creation of the 212 movement.

I agree. I used to study in Muhammadiyah schools for nine years and compared to the NU, they are relatively more conservative in their religious beliefs. It's founder, K.H. Ahmad Dahlan, was educated in Mecca, so it's not really weird.

Historically, Muhammadiyah played a remarkable role for education in Indonesia as they are the first, if not one of the first, to establish native schools that combine formal western education with Islamic studies. If I remember correctly, the first Muhammadiyah school is established to provide formal 'western' education combined with Islamic studies to the Bumiputera communities and as a response to Christianization, that they believe occured in Dutch schools.

Eh, well, Muhammadiyah indeed use and support the use of ijtihad to solve problems. However, back when I was a student there they taught us that "the Quran comes first, then the Hadith/Sunnah, and the last ijtihad" as a consideration to make decisions. I don't know about the practice tho.

My impression of them seems like a kinda "liberal salafism" where theyre very against a lot of supersition and innovation while at the time having several reformist views.
