MUZIL AL-MAJNUN FI RADD TASFIYAT AL-ẒUNUN BY MAMA SEMPUR: MOSLEM PURITANISM IN REVIEW

Nurfika Arofah

Abstract

The development of the purification Islamic teachings idea and the Islamic reform that occurred in the Sundanese level, early 20th century, has always been responded loudly and decisively by traditional ulama. This uncompromising attitude is based on the spirit of maintaining the traditional Islamic doctrine that develops in society from the Moslem puritanism. This concept has two directions, which carry out the idea of purifying Islamic teachings and appear as a reformer movement. This study aims to identify the response of traditional scholars to the Moslem puritanism. This study focuses on the effort of exploring the Islamic intellectual treasures which are contained in Muzīl al-Majnūn fī Radd Taṣfiyat al-Ẓunūn, the Sundanese manuscript by Mama Sempur which contains traditional ulama responses to the development of Islamic puritanism in the Sundanese level. The author uses two approaches: the philological approach and intellectual social history to read and to understand various thought discourses which are contained in the manuscript. This study concludes that Mama Sempur's negative assessment of the Moslem puritanism was feared that it would erode the traditional Islamic doctrine that had developed in the community.
