were involved in several military operations in Indonesia<br />

for more than a thous<strong>and</strong> years ago. These patriots had<br />

fought along with the natives long before the colonial<br />

era until Seroja Operation in Timor Leste (1976). Many<br />

Hisanori Kato<br />

ISBN: 978-979-709-688-5<br />

Indonesian people surprised Hisanori Kato, a Japanese traveller.<br />

To him, Indonesian people said too much of these two words, “no<br />

problem”, which for him means “there is a problem”. Commented on<br />

a friend who broke promises, the answer is “no problem”. The bus<br />

came late, “no problem”. Internet hang out, “no problem”.<br />

There were still many unique cases among Indonesian people<br />

which Kato-san, a Japanese, could not underst<strong>and</strong>. Without<br />

hurting someone’s feelings, he shared his personal experience<br />

using simple Indonesian language during his temporary living<br />

in Indonesia. Nowadays, Kato-san had returned to his original<br />

country. But he still often misses Indonesia as his second country.<br />

Islam From Japanese Perspective<br />

Hisanori Kato<br />

Japanese sociologist, Hisanori Kato, returns with his second book,<br />

which based upon his research about Islam in Indonesia for more<br />

than a decade. This book is a compilation of many interviews<br />

<strong>and</strong> analysis of many Moslem prominent figures from various<br />

ideologies <strong>and</strong> discipline.<br />

Tepat sekali, gambaran Zuhairi Misrawi, seorang alumni Al-Azhar tentang<br />

almamaternya; sebuah Perguruan yang banyak melahirkan tokoh terkemuka<br />

di Indonesia. Sebagai pemeluk Islam terbesar di dunia, kita perlu berkolaborasi<br />

dengan Al-Azhar untuk memberdayakan Islam moderat, yang menjadi misi<br />

utamanya. Kita juga perlu berkontribusi pada wakaf Al-Azhar dan berinvestasi<br />

guna memaksimalkan potensi lebih dari 4.000 mahasiswa Indonesia yang<br />

yang sangat berharga.<br />

turats, khazanah keilmuan, keislaman, keumatan, dan kemanusiaan. Dengan<br />

tradisi keilmuan yang sangat kokoh, al-Azhar mampu berkontribusi dalam<br />

Mecca is the holy city for Moslems. Inside the city<br />

lies Kaaba as Qibla, the direction for prayers for<br />

every Moslem. In this city, Muhammad SAW, the<br />

great leader, the Prophet, <strong>and</strong> God messenger was<br />

born. Historically Mecca was contested between<br />

many groups. Uniquely the group whom chose to<br />

protect Kaaba usually emerged as the winner. This Al-Azhar<br />

book is a complete of stories Z of Mecca in Pre-Islamic<br />

muka bumi. Didirikan oleh Dinasti Fatimiah pada tahun 973<br />

M, al-Azhar bukan saja merupakan salah satu perguruan<br />

tinggi tertua di dunia, tetapi juga menjadi salah satu benteng yang kokoh dari peradaban<br />

Islam Sunni.<br />

Seperti yang terjadi di banyak negara lain, di Indonesia pun perkembangan ajaran Islam<br />

time, Mecca in Period of Islam, <strong>and</strong> Mecca tidak dapat dipisahkan in dari the<br />

keberadaan al-Azhar. Pengaruhnya tak dapat dinafikan dalam<br />

pertumbuhan moderasi Islam di Tanah Air. Al-Azhar menjadi saksi hubungan intim Indonesia-<br />

Mesir. Pada tahun 1960, Presiden Sukarno menerima gelar Doctor Honoris Causa dari al-<br />

Azhar. Sekarang ini kurang lebih 4.000 mahasiswa Indonesia sedang belajar di universitas di<br />

Kairo itu.<br />

in Dalam studying<br />

bukunya ini Zuhairi Misrawi, penulis buku laris Mekkah (Penerbit Buku Kompas,<br />

2009) mengisahkan dengan baik sejarah al-Azhar, para mahasiswa Indonesia yang belajar<br />

di sana, serta peran al-Azhar dalam mengembangkan p<strong>and</strong>angan keislaman moderat dalam<br />

konteks global. Tidak luput pula dikupas secara mendalam tentang sejarah Mesir dan Kota<br />

Kairo yang mempesona.<br />

the work of Prophet Ibrahim <strong>and</strong> Muhammad SAW.<br />


Madinah merupakan titik awal lahirnya zaman<br />

baru, yang mana setiap kelompok telah mencapai<br />

konsensus untuk hidup berdampingan secara damai,<br />

saling menghargai, saling melindungi, serta<br />

mempunyai komitmen untuk menjaga keberlangsungan<br />

hidup tanpa diskriminasi dan eksploitasi.<br />

Sebab itu, Madinah dianggap sebagai fajar baru lahirnya<br />

peradaban manusia, yang juga membuktikan<br />

bahwa Islam adalah agama peradaban (dîn al-hadhârah)<br />

dan agama berkemajuan (dîn al-taqaddum).<br />

Islam hadir bukan untuk membabat habis dan menegasikan<br />

kelompok lain. Islam hadir justru untuk<br />

bersama­sama melahirkan peradaban baru yang<br />

membawa manfaat bagi seluruh umat manusia, apa<br />

pun latar belakang suku, ras, bahasa, agama, dan<br />

nasionalitasnya.<br />

(BaB Keistimewaan madinah)<br />

Zuhairi Misrawi<br />

Madinah is the second holy city after Mecca. One<br />

of the privileges of Madinah compared to other<br />

cities was that this city reminds us to Prophet<br />

Muhammad SAW. After the Prophet’s flight from<br />

Mecca to Madinah, this city was called as Madinah<br />

al-Nabi or City of The Prophet. This book explains<br />

clearly the special position of Madinah since pre-<br />

Islamic period, to Islam period, <strong>and</strong> in the modern<br />

time. The book is equipped with explanation<br />

surrounding Pilgrimage to Prophet Tomb, Nabawi<br />

Mosque, Raudhah, <strong>and</strong> other places with high<br />

historical-theological values.<br />

Madinah mempunyai pesona tersendiri, karena<br />

masyarakatnya mempunyai karakter yang suka<br />

ber sa ha bat dan membangun harmoni. Fakta tersebut<br />

tidak hanya berlaku pada zaman Nabi, tetapi<br />

juga bertahan hingga sekarang ini. Madinah telah<br />

mampu menghancurkan nafsu­nafsu kebencian (alnafs<br />

al-lawwâmah) yang biasanya bertengger pada<br />

orang­orang pagan Arab. Itulah keberhasilan ajaran<br />

Islam, yang menaklukkan setiap benci menjadi toleransi.<br />

This study starts with discussing<br />

strategy as a word that originated from<br />

“military world” <strong>and</strong> later is used in<br />

common practice; later it implies the<br />

strategy to Indonesia by calculating its<br />

geographical condition. Indonesia was<br />

by its nature a Country <strong>and</strong> Maritime<br />

Nation. This natural fact was ignored<br />

by many Indonesian rulers. However<br />

to develop Indonesia, a sacred l<strong>and</strong>, we<br />

must reinforce our maritime strength<br />

for the sake of national defense.<br />
