JAKARTA Ustadz Adi Hidayat (UAH) also conveyed views on the article writing competition held Pancasila Ideology Development Agency (BPIP) in commemoration of National Santri Day 2021. Adi Hidayat questioned the purpose of the two contested themes.

The article writing competition raised two themes, namely Respect for the Flag according to Islamic Law and Singing the National Anthem according to Islamic Law. This competition sparked polemics from various circles.

Ustadz Adi Hidayat said it was legal for the competition to be held in the context of strengthening national values, the values ​​of love for the country and love for the country. However, Ustadz Adi Hidayat assessed that the contested theme, from the structure of the theme, did not meet the perfect thinking structure.

“If we test with questions, what are the goals to be achieved from respecting the flag according to Islamic law. It is not yet known how Islamic law is related to respecting the flag. If you don’t know, you should ask. If BPIP asks, it is wrong to ask students to write articles, they should ask. to MUI,” said Ustadz Adi Hidayat on the Adi Hidayat Official Youtube channel, Saturday (14/8/2021).

According to Ustadz Adi Hidayat, the rationale for the theme of the competition is very weak. In addition, the target of the competition is also not properly addressed to students. The construction of Islamic law in the Shari’a language is not the domain of the santri. Because students are still in the realm of learning.

“When they study an Islamic law, they learn the basics of law that have absolutely been completed by scholars based on references to Islamic legal law. For example, regarding fiqh, what is the ruling on ablution water mixed with dirt. Discussions that have been completed by the scholars for studied, this is the realm of students,” he explained.

Moreover, these students have levels, starting from the level of tsanawiyah, aliyah, maha santri (students). “This is you (BPIP) giving the burden of legal construction of the work of the ulama to the students who are still at the basic level who in the context have not yet entered into formulating a law. The students only copy and paste the legal foundations made by the ulama, cannot produce a view law,” he said.

Therefore, Ustadz Adi Hidayat considered it reasonable if this theme caused a polemic. If indeed the goal of BPIP is to instill a sense of love for the nation and the homeland, or strengthen nationality in a religious context, these two themes are not appropriate.

“Just do something that is in harmony with the santri. For example, the role of the ulama in giving birth to the independence of Indonesia. Spread to 34 provinces so that each santri can give birth to their own ulama who contribute to the independence of the Republic of Indonesia. What inspires, so that each one knows his character. ,” he said.

“This theme is weak from various sides. This is not the domain of the santri, but the MUI, ulama, Kyai. BPIP can consult so that it does not cause polemics and turmoil. Our input, it is better to change the theme according to the characteristics of the santri,” he concluded.
