ISLAM NUSANTARA AND PROGRESSIVE ISLAM: Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) And Muhammadiyah's View on Relationship of Religion and Culture
This study will focus on the differences between the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) concept of Islam Nusantara and the Muhammadiyah concept of Progressive Islam and the epistemological differences in the characteristics of both are. This is qualitative research using content analysis. The researcher found that there are differences between the concept and the characteristics of Islam Nusantara and Progressive Islam. Islam Nusantara refers to the teachings of Islam practiced in Indonesia to articulate the teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah with local tradition. While Muhammadiyah with the concept of Progressive Islam wants to present al-Qur'an and al-Sunnah as universal teachings, which not only contains commands and prohibitions but also contains values of progress to realize enlightened human life. The differences from the epistemological characteristics reveal that NU is more accommodating to local culture. At the same time, Muhammadiyah with the concept of al-ruju (back) to al-Qur'an and al-Sunnah is very strict in accommodating local culture. The different characteristics have an impact on the assessment of whether culture/tradition should be accepted or not.
