Despite these measures, certain communities display reluctance in adhering to health protocols, leading to a surge in Covid-19 cases. Notably, in Indonesia, Islamic education's role in promoting resistance to Covid-19 health protocols through interpretations of Quranic verses on tawakkal (reliance on God's will) remains understudied. Focusing on selected kiai from Sidoarjo district, East Java, this study delves into the various Quranic interpretations regarding pandemics and their evolution. The research identifies two distinct groups of kiai: one advocating complete reliance on tawakkal, relegating human efforts in combating the virus, and another emphasizing proactive measures before turning to tawakkal. The paper argues that these interpretative differences stem from the kiai's ability to use principles of interpreting al-Qur`ān. Understanding these perspectives highlights the interplay between religious beliefs and public health practices during the pandemic, emphasizing the need for engaging Islamic leaders in promoting effective health protocols for societal well-being.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) A Century of Nadhlatul Ulama’s Contribution to Modernizing Islamic Education in Indonesia 2023-08-16T11:20:23+00:00 Munawir Almi Novita <p>Nadhlatul Ulama (NU) has long prioritized the issue of education, recognizing its importance as the key to unlocking a better future. Holding onto religious values and harnessing the advancements in knowledge and technology, NU consistently designs transformations within its educational institutions to meet the challenges of the future. This study aims to explore NU's role and significant contributions in the effort to modernize Islamic education and delve into its one-century existence as an entity contributing to the development of education in Indonesia. The Library Research method is employed in this study to gather and analyze various data sources, including books, journals, and other literature, which are then synthesized into a scholarly article. The research findings indicate that NU has endeavored to implement educational modernization through the establishment of thousands of educational institutions, especially pesantren, across Indonesia. The integration of modern education with digital learning tools is one concrete effort undertaken by NU to adapt to changing times. In addition to providing religious education, NU is committed to nurturing a generation that possesses a grasp of knowledge and technology, enabling them to compete in the era of globalization.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) Fostering Moderate Islamic Values: Implementing a Design Model for Counter-Radicalization in Higher Education 2023-10-03T13:41:12+00:00 Nadlir Nadlir Ilun Mualifah <p>This study delves into the construction of a counter-radicalization model within Islamic higher education, specifically at Sunan Ampel State Islamic University in Surabaya. The imperative to curb the spread of radicalism within campus communities highlights the significance of cultivating a comprehensive grasp of moderate Islam among students. Central to this research is the examination of the Islamic Studies course within the Primary School Teacher Education Program. Employing a research and development methodology, the study employs pre-post test designs, including control groups, to discern the effectiveness of the proposed model. Notably, the course design departs from conventional non-religious subjects, incorporating both direct and indirect instructional approaches. Post-treatment results reveal a noteworthy enhancement in students' exhibition of moderate Islamic attitudes, with performance levels escalating from an initial 60.71% to a promising 70.00%. Statistical scrutiny underscores the model's efficacy, affirming its potency in fostering moderation-based insights among students. Ultimately, this investigation underscores the model's superiority in enhancing students' comprehension in contrast to conventional pedagogical strategies.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) The Emergence of Student-Writers in Surakarta: Combating Religious Radicalism Among Youth in the Digital Age 2023-10-07T01:03:14+00:00 Zaid Munawar Muhammad Ishom <p>The rise of religious radicalism among young people in the Soloraya region has been greatly influenced by digital technology. Efforts to address this issue have emerged from student-writers in Surakarta. This research aims to examine the emergence of these student-writers in Surakarta, their responses to religious radicalism, the discussions on Islam within their community, and their methods of outreach in the digital era. Netnography was never applied to gather and examine data from online sources like websites and social media platforms. The findings reveal that student-writers started their involvement in 2017 through the establishment of the Center for the Study and Development of Islamic Boarding Schools (PKPPN) at IAIN Surakarta. Their discussions focus on unearthing the values of wisdom and Islamic moderation within the pesantren tradition, emphasizing principles like moderation, tolerance, equality, anti-violence, and patriotism. They have initiated the Literacy of Refined and Tolerant Islam (LISaN) program to promote a refined and tolerant form of Islam in daily life, both offline and online. This initiative aims to counteract the surge of religious radicalism among young people connected to the digital world.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) Navigating Remedial Dhikr and Surah Memorization: A Quest for Improvement or Procedural Challenges? 2023-10-11T23:17:22+00:00 Surawardi Saibatul Hamdi Ahmad Riyadh Maulidi <p>This study explores a new phenomenon in the implementation of remedial practices that differ from the common remedial approaches. In this context, remedial activities involve reciting dhikr (remembrance of God) and memorizing short surahs (chapters) during the learning process. The research aims to describe the implementation of this remedial approach and the underlying reasons for its adoption at MA Sabilal Muhtadin. The research employs a qualitative approach using phenomenological methods. The study subjects include two teachers and five relevant informants. The research findings reveal several key points. First, the remedial activities involve two teachers but do not appear to represent the appropriate instruments for enhancing the quality of students' learning. Students are only given additional tasks, such as memorization, without receiving guidance related to unfinished learning indicators. Second, the implementation of these remedial activities arises from teachers' perceptions of limited time allocation, prompting them to take the initiative to carry out remedial practices that can be completed quickly. Teachers also believe that remedial activities can compensate for students' inadequate grades. These findings indicate that teachers possess limited knowledge about the correct procedures for remedial practices. Third, the execution of remedial activities does not align with the proper remedial procedures, resulting in minimal impact on students' improved understanding and, in some cases, an additional learning burden. The implications of this research include providing recommendations to the relevant madrasah to improve their remedial programs. These recommendations encompass practical steps, such as organizing training sessions for madrasah teachers to enhance their understanding of the correct remedial procedures.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) Unpacking Social Capital for Growth and Development of Islamic Boarding School 2023-10-14T13:30:50+00:00 Mochamad Nasichin Al Muiz Syamsul Kurniawan Muhammad Miftah Feny Nida Fitriyani <p>This article describes and analyzes the significance of social capital for the growth and development of the Integrated Islamic Boarding School Al Kamal in Blitar, East Java. It is the result of qualitative research aimed at illustrating, revealing, and explaining the importance of social capital for the Integrated Islamic Boarding School Al Kamal in Blitar, East Java. Data were collected through observation, in-depth interviews, and documentation, following John W. Creswell's qualitative research procedures. The data analysis technique used was interactive analysis, following the procedures of Matthew B. Miles, A.M. Huberman, and Saldana. Based on the research findings, it can be concluded that the presence of pesantren (Islamic boarding schools) is closely related to the role of social capital. Besides serving as educational and religious institutions, pesantren also play a crucial role as social institutions within the community. Social capital has become a vehicle for their growth and development. This trend is evident in the Integrated Islamic Boarding School Al Kamal in Blitar, East Java, where its growth and development are intricately connected to the social capital it has built and possesses. The types of social capital developed by the pesantren include bonding social capital, bridging social capital, and linking social capital.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies) Synergizing Islamic Religious Education and Scientific Learning in the 21st Century: A Systematic Review of Literature 2023-11-22T14:23:09+00:00 Muhammad Raihan Nasucha Khozin Khozin I’anatut Thoifah <p>In the 21st century, the evolution of educational methodologies has significantly transformed Islamic Religious Education (IRE). This era demands students to acquire diverse competencies essential for their future, positioning IRE as crucial in mitigating the adverse effects of rapidly advancing science. To successfully navigate 21st-century Islamic education, an integration of religious and scientific knowledge is imperative. This approach aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding and foster good values to counteract immoral behaviors. This research focuses on evaluating integrated learning concepts in implementing the 4C Skills (Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity) among students. A qualitative approach, specifically a systematic literature review, was employed. The review involved meticulous selection and screening based on predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. The findings reveal that integrating IRE and science can manifest in learning evaluations. Implementing an integrated learning concept in evaluations positively influences student learning activities, spanning cognitive, affective, and psychomotor aspects, aided by the incorporation of 4C Skills in 21st-century learning environments.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Pendidikan Agama Islam (Journal of Islamic Education Studies)
