Abstract

On 28 April 2018, a seminar on Hamka was jointly organised by IAIS Malaysia, the National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students (PKPIM), and the Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM), with the cooperation of Jejak Tarbiah and the Academy of Islamic Studies Alumni Association (ALIM). This seminar was an exploration of Hamka’s ideas about and approach towards conceptualising Fiqh Ta’ayush, the art of peaceful co-existence. Prof. Dr. Haji Abdul Malik Karim Amrullah, or Hamka, was well-known for his attempts at promoting moderation amidst theological and political pandemonium in Indonesia. During his lifetime, it was a great challenge to live the spirit of Bhinekka Tunggal Ika (Unity in Diversity) due to Indonesia’s multicultural and multi-ethnic society, post-colonial ideological rivalries, and plurality of Muslim discourse.
